It was another great morning at sunrise out at the Santa Ana Golf Course. You can forget about silly things out there. Here are a few I forgot about a few hours.
First, down the road from where we played golf today sits the Hyatt Tamaya Resort. This week there is the annual super secret meetings of the nation's top CEO's occurring there. You know, the ones who track your every move, control your government, and generally kill democracy with political donations. The resort and golf course are closed down to everyone. Top right wing politicians are there, one of them is probably Congressman Paul Ryan who was seen flying in to Albuquerque yesterday. Fellow blogger Joe Monahan said Ryan indicated he was coming in to visit Governor Martinez. So, can we assume she is there too? As Sara Palin would say, "You Betcha!"
Secondly, the idea of making our old killing ground at the State Penitentiary into a tourist attraction for the blood spatter crowd. What a great thing to do! Commemorating a killing spree in the 1980's riot at the Pen for good family fun. Why, they might even have sno-cones and cotton candy for the little Dexter wannabes. Score a big economic development idea for the Martinez administration.
Thirdly, the ham- fisted attempt by the Mayor's Office and Albuquerque City Clerk to not allow the ballot initiative on abortion on the the October Ballot. Lots of foot dragging there and it will end up costing us big time for another election. I guess the Mayor's handlers decided there was some downside to having this on the regular city election ballot.
