In the new age of technology it is hard to imagine the full extent of the potential problems that will occur from our innovative future. For instance, what happens when drones become more popular and and evasive to help carry out harmful crimes. This could lead to a scary outcomes.
Are we going to need more security than before ? How will society deal with our new devices. Keep in mind most of our new technology has come from relatively recent breakthroughs, so it is hard to tell what truly lies ahead.
All I know is to Keep your eyes peeled and think smarter not harder, because the future is here and without a higher power it is hard to imagine the possible devastation yet to come.

As good a place to start as any would be an understatement.
Coming from the Pacific Northwest I am a visitor and observer to Albuquerque.
Artistically and aesthetically this city is alive. No doubt about it.
But there is also foundation and tradition that binds the more fragile and untamed together like an unspoken understanding.
Being creative here is encouraged and dreams are truly recognised as worthy and approachable.
Casually, a city. Although, a break from the hunt-or-be-hunted mindset of Los Angeles.
I say that because entertainment and media here is just more down to earth.
As any artist struggles with an idea there is no smoke and mirrors to obscure an original intention.
Because all are welcomed.
Hope that doesn’t wear off Abq.

Statement from NM House Republican Leader Nate Gentry on the passing of former U.S. Senator Pete Domenici
Albuquerque, NM – New Mexico House Republican Leader Nate Gentry (R-Bernalillo) released the following statement on the passing of former United States Senator Pete V. Domenici:
“I was devastated to hear of Senator Domenici’s passing earlier this morning. As we reflect on Senator Domenici’s incredible legacy, we should also recall his willingness to work with Democrats and Republicans alike to improve the condition of our state and nation. Our country would be a better place if more public officials took Senator Domenici’s approach to governing. We have lost a legendary statesman today. My thoughts and prayers are with Nancy and the entire Domenici family.”
Since Donald Trump was elected President Of the United States there has been alot of Instability in his cabinet.Trump has gone through multiple white house press secretaries and hes fired at least 3 more of his closest cabinet members with the latest Steve Bannon, who has stated that “the trump presidency is over”.After all the mistakes Trump has made in the first days of his presidency you would think he’d be impeached by now.Time will tell but the trump presidency is far from being the best let alone the most Stable.

New Mexico Governor Susanna Martinez recently Cut Funding for public Schools In New Mexico Including Higher Education.Instead of bringing New sources of income or raising taxes,Governor Martinez has decided to take the Funds From New mexico Students.
Let me preface this article with the following information… You’ve probably seen me around town with my dog. I either walk or hike an average of 42 miles every week, especially when it’s nice outside. I live within 7.2 miles of everywhere I go. That being said, sometimes I would rather take the bus due to inclement weather or I am suffering from a bad case of sleep deprivation and just don’t have the motivation to walk.
When I heard about A.R.T. (Albuquerque Rapid Transit), I could not understand how anyone aside from those businesses that are on Central could possibly be upset about this project. Of particular concern was the Nob Hill district.
Granted, I live at the beginning of the war zone. I get tired of all of the drug dealers, pot (a.k.a. chronic) emanating from apartment buildings surrounding mine, alcoholics, tweakers and hypodermic needles I continue to find in my neighborhood. As a result, I wanted to move to a complex where I would be completely dependent on the bus system in Albuquerque.
I reconsidered due to A.R.T., thinking I could put off moving for a year, knowing full well the project could become problematic at times. I just wanted to be in a quiet, safe area away from all of the crime. Then, lo and behold, what did I find?
There are orange cones and barrels for safety purposes all over Central Avenue, which seem to move every week. Bus stops keep moving. I will go to what I think is for either the 66 or 777 bus.I will be waiting awhile and next thing I know, the bus I was waiting for goes right past me. I wind up walking at least half a mile trying to find another “correct” stop. I thought I knew where the bus stops all along Central and San Mateo were, but then they were moved.
Yesterday, I took the Lomas bus to San Mateo. Then I waited for the 140 or 141 to go south bound along San Mateo. It was supposed to be a straight shot. NO! The San Mateo bus went South to Copper Avenue, headed west on Copper, southbound one block to Central Avenue, then eastbound down Central. Holy crap! Talk about frustrating.
Now there’s talk that there might not be enough money to finish the Albuquerque Rapid Transit project.WTF? Mayor Berry has no back-up plan should funding run out. Who is going to foot the bill? My bet is the taxpayers.
So, my stance is, fix whatever holes are along Central and make the city go back to the old bus system.
Lost in A.R.T.
Trump is insinuating that Hispanics and Muslims are criminals.He is founding this argument on the isolated criminal actions of a very few people,so few that they have almost no statistical bearing.this is morally wrong and indicative of fascism and a tyrant.Martin Luther king taught us all “Judge not a man by the color of his skin,but by the content of his character”.I will not broadly characterize the vast majority of Latinos or Muslims as villains,rapist or criminals because of the crimes of an isolated few.I know in my heart that the majority of Hispanics and Muslims are honest hard working god fearing people.I will judge each person by the content of their character and I will not judge them because of alternative facts or the workings of a tyrant.I believe in America,I believe as an american it is my duty to protect my country and countrymen,but i will not sacrifice freedom for security.By going against the tide,by not following the fascist status quo of racial persecution,I am becoming an even brighter beacon of humanity and whats right and I encourage others to do the same.
Paisano’s restaurant is the best restaurant in the Albuquerque.Not only does the restaurant use all homemade ingredients like pasta,chips and bread,but they also use authentic traditional recipes and methods from the old country.As the owner said “the kitchen is like a little grandmas kitchen in Italy” and they still do things that same way.If you like all fresh ingredients as well as homemade, Paisano’s is the place to be.The taste of the food is pure,that’s the best way to put it,pure authenticity.

The constitution of The United States of America ensures freedom of the press,for the president to do anything contrary to this is a slap in the face to every American. The White House belongs to the people, and the presidency is to serve the people.Denial of the press to enter the White House shows the true character of this tyrant and we the people should move towards impeachment.
On June 6th,1944, hundreds of thousands of Americans sent brave members of their family to liberate Europe and the world from Nazi Germany. The operation was called Operation Overlord, and it was the largest, deadliest and most heroic invasion in the history of the world. Thousands of American service members landed on the beaches of Normandy France facing heavy gunfire many lost their lives. The United States Led the assault because a dictator told the German people he woul…d maker their country great again, he then took over the press and began demonizing minorities in that country, as he wanted a superior Anglo race. Most of his anger was directed to Jewish People In which he killed 6 Million Jewish men women and children. Adolf Hitler lied to his people, lied to the world, and caused World War II. The whole world united against fascism, but his axis of evil was too powerful and only the United States Could turn the tide. The whole world remembers what our country did, what our ancestors did on the beaches of Normandy that day. We sent our very best to fight for humanity, for freedom, and justice, and the fair treatment of all.
When facing the challenges we face today in our society we must remember our history. We are those troops that landed on Normandy, their spirits lives in our blood! We cannot forget what they did, and we cannot let any politicians try to make us ignorant of history or lead us to believe that oppressing people is right. We as a people must be vigilant about our rights and our culture and the national status quo in which we live. We are nation built by immigrant and defended by immigrants, we should be the most open to immigrants.
The problems facing The United States today are not immigrants, the problems are corporations meddling in our government and showing favoritism to the rich. This ruins our system, we can’t have corporations outsourcing jobs and we must tax the rich like everyone else. Our system runs off of equality and production, when there are disparities the schools fall apart, the infrastructure, the immigration system, many and many other government systems decline to inadequate funds caused by poor taxing and lack of jobs. Whatever we do, we cannot forget the reason why we landed on Normandy, the liberation of the world from fascism, hate, racism, oppression, prejudice and the destruction of the idea that all men are created equal. This is our reminder, our part of history that guides our actions for the future. We cannot forget history or we will repeat it.
The privatization of our prison systems is a conflict of interest between the government, corporations and the people of America. We the people should never put ourselves in a position where corporations use the government to make money. America is the greatest country on earth but if we allow corporations to create a military industrial complex and destroy our rights as individuals then we are letting ourselves down as well as the vision of our founding fathers. All of our systems are the best, our judicial system, our legislative system and our executive system are all the best, but when we let corporations influence our government we are finished. I am a capitalist, I believe in corporations, but I believe I am a true capitalist in the sense that I believe corporations should stay out of the government realm and compete amongst each other on the global market, corporations should also fairly rise and fall instead of getting government assistance, this helps for new funds to enter the global financial markets, without government intervention and allows societies and governments to function a way that actually helps corporations in the long run; by creating more and better consumers.
Some local New Mexican TV and Newspaper entities are jumping on the Racist bandwagon by publishing stories on “Mexican Cartels” and the “Mexican Criminal element” why weren’t they publishing these stories before Donald trumps demonization of Hispanics and immigrants?News should benefit all people in a community and it shouldn’t be tailored either to oppress or to gain ratings on the misfortune of others.

Trump Inaugural Livestream
There was A very low Turn Out at President Trumps January 20th Inauguration.Many people Say Trump rallied the American people but it doesn’t really show their support with such low numbers at the inauguration.Compared to President Obama’s inauguration the turnout was nil.
The Karma Cafe has Opened its doors and is now serving guest.It is interesting that this cafe is doing business in such a way.It seems that this restaurant is primarily operating on the Buddhist Ideology of karma, where you pay what you can after the meal,as what goes around comes around,But how does this function in a capitalistic country?Would people just go eat and then pay what they can if its less than the cost and overhead of preparing the meal?Or will once in a while a kind soul will come and impart more payment then needed as a sign of good will?Either way the restaurant is unique and the concept interesting.In america anything goes,you never know in such a country of extreme wealth and opportunity hopefully the restaurant will thrive and do well.So in the spirit of Karma,We Wish You the Best Karma cafe!
visit the Karma Cafe!

Albuquerque is one of the most crime ridden cities in the United States. Not only do we have a major crime problem,but we also have high drop out rates,high teen pregnancy and a major drug problem, on top of that, we have decaying schools and even worst, corruption in our police department. With all this being said,what does our mayor do?He spends our hard earned money,not on improving our community,but on a $300 million dollar Bus lane that we don’t even need!Some say so he can throw money at his contractor friends that way they can pay him political contributions when he runs for Governor. Our city has suffered the death of three beautiful children at the hands of criminals,crime is rampant,people are shooting up stores and the mayor spends money on a street project many of the businesses on central dislike and didn’t even get the chance to vote for,nonetheless sued the city over. Even more,the bus lane project is having issues being approved by the federal government for additional funding,this city is in a quagmire of a mess. One would think that a public official would look after the best interest of the people by prioritizing what needs to be done, when you have all theses serious issues that need to be fixed,a useless bus lane down central is the last thing we are concerned about;maybe next time when it comes to electing our leadership,we’ll think twice.
With major advances in solar technology and the scientific proof that global warming is real,oil companies continue to alter society in a way that furthers oil dependence.Thousands of protesters continue to protest the North Dakota oil pipeline.Despite fierce opposition the North Dakota governor continues to approve of this project.Throughout all of america there have been protest for many different and vitally important causes,the election of fraudulent politicians,police murders,and the destruction of the environment.Some suggest that the protest should be economic,rallying funds towards special causes as well as boycotting certain industries,this may be the way to go.
Many of the world’s debate experts as well as political analyst are in agreement that Donald Trump Failed horribly at the first presidential debate. This failure may set the tone for the rest election if Donald Trump doesn’t change his strategy, which he hasn’t so far, and isn’t expected too soon.
The much contested and allegedly fraudulent Route 66 A.R.T project has apparently made a major mistake– busting a water line and sending thousands of gallons of water and taxpayer’s money down the drain. The people of Albuquerque were not allowed a valid vote on this project and are now essentially paying for the wasted water. Mayor Berry and his team went forward and basically slid the project behind the peoples back and not only do the citizens have to deal with the destruction of the original route 66, but they now have to watch as a precious resource in their beloved desert city gets washed away.
