How Donald Trump Inspired Me To Speak Up

4 hours ago

Commentary:  When Mr. Trump announced he was running for president, a vast majority of well-respected subject matter experts on political science did not take him seriously and assured that he would not be able to keep his momentum going and would inevitably withdraw from the presidential race by early 2016. After all, Mr. Trump was facing well-known and experienced politicians and he supposedly did not stand a chance to secure the Republican Party’s nomination. Boy, were they wrong!

Triple digit temps dry the Rio Grande

4 hours ago

  Despite spring runoff that ripped down the Rio Grande in early June, consistently high temperatures in July are contributing to drying in the Rio Grande, the state’s largest river.

Under a 2003 plan from the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the river is legally allowed to dry south of Albuquerque during irrigation season.

The river began drying in mid-July as managers allow water to flow into irrigation channels. Currently, there are about 17 miles dry south of Albuquerque, between San Antonio and the southern boundary of Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge.

THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you.  (Applause.)  Thank you so much.  Thank you, everybody.  (Applause.)  Thank you.  (Applause.)

AUDIENCE:  Obama!  Obama!  Obama!

AUDIENCE MEMBER:  We love you!

THE PRESIDENT:  I love you back!  (Applause.) 

Hello, America!  Hello, Democrats!  (Applause.) 

  Commentary:  Mr. Biad’s 7/21 column (Las Cruces Sun News) was most disingenuous.  There are facts missing - and statements both untrue and misleading.  Conservative’s are not in the process?  They have been very involved in the process.  Does that mean they must always win?

Treasury debt and thwarting Obama is not germaine to the Las Cruces discussion for our purposes.  As for Las Cruces reality and Biad reality - apparently, "never the twain shall meet.”

Senator Michael S. Sanchez (D-29-Bernalillo and Valencia)

  Commentary: Senate Democrats today called on Governor Susana Martinez to convene the New Mexico Legislature in an emergency special session to fix the quickly expanding budget deficit that has resulted from plummeting state revenues. A new report last week revealed that the State spent between $150 – $200 million more than it had budgeted in the fiscal year that just ended, and the year ahead looks even worse.
