I am not near as radical as some would think. I think two years of unemployment compensation is too much and I don't like supporting couples who wont marry because it will effect the benefits that single mothers get. But I think Medicare and Social Security, after some trimming, are crucial to our country's future.
These extremists in the Tea Party and GOP differ from the crazy christian fundamentalist in Norway in that they are not overtly violent. But the damage they will do this country will be just as traumatic as the tragedy in Scandinavia if they don't face reality on the current economic situation.
And while this is going on our republican governor is still playing the wedge issue of immigration. Well, she hired a man who was forced out of Albuquerque City Government for sexual harassment. He will be in charge of interviewing the 10,000 immigrants summoned for interrogation on their New Mexico Drivers Licenses. Will he have a conflict with every female immigrant who comes in to prove themselves to the Martinez brown shirts?
Yeah, it is an over the top Post to Only in New Mexico, but frustration reigns.
