Transit Board Votes to End Weekend Rail Runner Service

I'm not kidding. Read it and weep. New Mexico is moving further and further backwards. Day in and day out. What kind of future is in the cards for us? One that lacks even the most basic of forward-thinking progressive elements that nourish a culture and its communities so that they thrive.

Thank all the Dems who voted for Susana Martinez for governor, for starters. Then move on to thanking all the legislators who refuse to raise taxes on our richest citizens or to close corporate tax loopholes -- including the fake Dems in power positions in the Roundhouse.

It becomes ever more clear that the "best of times" is past.

Elections have consequences, that is for sure. A pathetic and short-sighted electorate was delivered unto Susana Martinez. And we will be paying that price for a very long time.

I have the same thoughts and feelings. I'm not sure I want to be a Democrat anymore, because the party on both the local and national doesn't listen to the rank and file. Maybe the corporate CEO's, and the fake Dems in the Roundhouse can go door to door in 2012.
