I'll be off work for the next two weeks, so, unless something big happens, I probably won't be blogging much here on Roundhouse Roundup.
See you in August.
“The Democrat Party seems to believe that ‘millionaires’ don’t understand the concerns of the ‘little guy’ and therefore are incapable of developing sound economic policies to create jobs for all New Mexicans. Since Diane Denish is a millionaire as a result of her father’s success, does this mean the Democrat Party thinks the ‘elite’ wealth of their own nominee also disqualifies her from addressing the economic concerns of average New Mexicans?
“Susana Martinez has assembled a team of seasoned leaders in the business community who understand what it takes to create jobs and financial opportunity for the people in this state. Why the Democrat Party wants to criticize her for trying to put people back to work defies common sense. Maybe for the sake of transparency, the Democrat Party should ask Diane Denish to disclose how much income she derives from Daniels Insurance Agency and the income which Daniels receives, directly or indirectly, from state and local government in New Mexico.”
“No sooner had the floor caught the descending form, which had a pistol in one hand and a knife in the other, than there was a strong odor of brimstone in the air, and a dark figure, with the wings of a dragon, claws like a tiger, eyes like balls of fire, and horns like a bison, hovered over the corpse for a moment, and with a fiendish laugh, said, ‘Ha! Ha! This is my meat!’ and then sailed off through the window.”
I support New Mexico being a right to work state so as to improve our economy and become competitive with surrounding states that are right to work states. This allows employees to decide for themselves if they want to participate in a union.
The Department of Health will provide patients with contact information for the newly licensed nonprofit producers in approximately six weeks. This will give the nonprofits time to set up their production facilities and get ready to respond to patient inquiries.
The Department approved the first nonprofit producer in March 2009 and four more in November 2009. Nonprofit producers are allowed to have 95 mature plants and seedlings and have an inventory of usable medical cannabis for patients. Patients can also apply to produce their own supply of medical cannabis and are allowed to have four mature plants and 12 seedlings.
There are 1,952 active medical cannabis patients, and 865 are licensed to produce their own supply of medical cannabis.
To be approved for the medical cannabis program, patients must have a physician certify that they have one of the 16 qualifying conditions that is debilitating and cannot be helped by standard treatments. Certain conditions require additional medical certifications or medical records detailing the condition.
Gov. Bill Richardson today offered his congratulations to those responsible for two made-in-New Mexico television productions that received a combined 13 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, which were announced this morning. “Breaking Bad”, the AMC series shot in Albuquerque, received 6 nominations while the made-for-television movie “Georgia O’Keeffe” garnered 7 nominations. The Governor also praised actors Neil Patrick Harris and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, both from Albuquerque, for receiving nominations.
“I am proud that productions created with New Mexico’s outstanding talent, experienced crew, and unparalleled locations continue to be recognized as among the industry’s best,” said Richardson. “And as important as the quality of work is the fact that the industry means jobs for New Mexicans and revenue for the state.”

According to Basiago, the US government already had a fully operational teleportation capability in 1967-68, and by 1969-70, was actively training a cadre of gifted and talented American schoolchildren, including himself, to become America’s first generation of “chrononauts” or time-space explorers.
He confirms that the United States has been teleporting individuals to Mars for decades and recounts the awe-inspiring and terrifying trips that he took to Mars in 1981. He describes how he and his father (an engineer working on time/space research projects for the U.S. defense department) would teleport from Woodridge, NJ to Santa Fe, NM and return via a teleportation device at Sandia National Labs in Albuquerque.
I think another breakthrough will come in the form of accounts from residents of Santa Fe [New Mexico] about children suddenly appearing at the state capitol complex there in the early 1970's. Our arrivals were sometimes witnessed. Several of my own arrivals were witnessed. I have spoken with area residents who knew that individuals were teleporting into Santa Fe in the early 1970's. Some of that knowledge resulted from the arrival of teleportees, including myself, being seen by others; other knowledge resulted from the fact that employees of LANL [Los Alamos National Laboratory] were bringing stories about the teleportation that was going on home from work and sharing them with their children around the dinner table in Los Alamos and White Rock.” ~Andrew Basiago
I would suggest that Susana Martinez focus on the real issues that New Mexicans are facing and stop trying to pit us against our own families. I would also suggest that Susana Martinez and her entire office take a quick trip to Albuquerque and learn about racism at the Anti-Racism Training Institute. When Susana's done she should pack her bags and leave New Mexico. We don't need her or her hate filled rhetoric and immigrant bashing! Where should she go? How's hell for starters.Oh boy ...
