Misc.

The no job creation agenda of the Martinez administration and its GOP backers continues.  Now Martinez is spending her time checking to see if illegal immigrants have voted by running lists of drivers license holders against the voter files.  They only need to find one so they can continue their xenophobia.  They really need to find better things to do.  That may not happen as she is a long time prosecutor and enjoys spending her time prosecuting.  Time to get out of that mode Governor and start working positively.

Here is a note I sent to a friend in Washington last night.
"Please tell the president to not offer subsidies to the solar industry.  Not after giving a nod to offshore drilling, resulting in the disaster in the gulf.  Not after putting up 36B more for nuclear guarantees.  Well, there goes Japan.  

If he does something favorable for someone it goes to hell, and solar is all we have left."


Talk about bad timing!

I really feel bad about the plight of the Japanese.  I will be helping by sending money for relief.  I think this disaster will be long lasting and catastrophic for Japan's and the world's economy.

Richardson refused to do the comparison and it makes me wonder why. I think it would be good to know. Also, about subsidies to the solar industry, it grates my a** to learn that the State Dept. is spending $770M remaking mosques and supplying them with PC's.

This fable originated in loony part of the loony Right - the American Family Association. The State Department does spend money rebuilding historic landmarks overseas, including mosques, under a program begun in 2001 under George W Bush.

"The State Department declined a Channel 2 Action News request for an interview. We wanted to ask why are we using tax dollars to refurbish religious buildings overseas. The State Department did send Channel Two Action News an e-mail saying that they are fighting Islamic extremism by building relationships with Islamic leaders."
