Do Something

Will our Attorney General Gary King or our State Auditor Hector Balderas do anything about the willful and illegal mining of government data by Governor Susanna Martinez's political henchman Jay McCleskey?  Just imagine what would happen if a democratic governor was sitting in the chair right now and there were a republican AG and Auditor.  This wouldn't be one day coverage in the media I can assure you.  And this is where the democrats always fail.  They have become mostly meek and subservient.  Where is the courage?

I would like to see some righteous indignation like the oped in the Journal this morning from an Albuquerque resident who put the whole union bashing campaign into perspective.  Even if you don't like unions this essay hit home on the assault on working people in this country.  Read Tim Taylor's majestic piece here.

President Obama will try to do something today to stop his slide in the face of a still difficult economic recovery.  This may be one of the most important orations he has done.  I hope he can show who the working people can trust in this country.  If he can't then he is in danger of losing.  It could happen.

Jim,
Great site. I just discovered it, as I look at local stuff a lot more now. I think that's where the future of our politics and economics is. The feds are either deadlocked or working for the 1%. I see local and state gov't as being the new engine for change. All the more reason to pay attention to Gov. Martinez and her cronies.
I'm close to you in age, 62, and we have seen a lot of changes, socially and economically. I think we are only at the front end of a wave of global change, (energy, food, work)and I believe fearful reactionaries (like our Gov.) can't stop it, but they will make it a painful as possible for the rest of us and cling to power as long as they can, looting the place on the way out.

For sure AG King doesn't have the you know what to investigate, and Balderas is probably pouting over his huge election loss to Heinrich. Same ole, same ole . . .

That is a good column by Tim Taylor that you link to.

When I see something like that in the Journal it reminds me of a church lady who indulges in a little bit of innocent sin. Publishing a column in favor of working people makes the Journal editors feel a little bit naughty.
