Crime Rampant in Albuquerque, City needs Tougher Laws.

How would you feel if a trailer was taken off your truck in broad daylight?or your moving across country and all your possessions are simply broken into and driven into the sunset.These things happen everyday in Albuquerque, people who work hard for their cars and tools are constantly becoming victims of theft.

New Mexico is a beautiful and wild state, but it’s not a place for lax theft laws , in order for us to help lift the state out of poverty we have to prevent craftsman from having their property taken.

Some say that private prisons and the justice system profits off of crime which may very well be so but we must change our strategy in a way to where the community will profit from deterrence more than private or government profiting from crime occurrence.

There are many solutions , one is to hire more officers or to increase social programs , all which are good , however , an all encompassing solution would be extremely tougher property crime laws to deter theft.

What is your solution to Albuquerque’s crime problem?

Cherish Your Loved Ones

Be kind to all people and spend time with your loved ones and cherish them with all your heart ,no one can tell what the day will bring , the true treasures of life are not of the world and cannot be replaced ,wisdom is greater than gold and understanding greater than rubies how much more is the time with your loved ones or walking with god?

Our father had nothing to his name , but he drew a fish in the sand ,no great worldly possessions , but he said “ today you will be with me In paradise “ , how was the time spent with him ?we cherished him with thorns , but when he died , light defeated darkness ,life defeated death , good over evil and peace over war , the temple was rent in two , the dead walked the earth , and the good news spread throughout the earth that all men are saved , we cherished him with thorns.

How great did our father love us that he gave his only son that we may have eternal life in heaven ,

His spirit lives on in each and everyone one of us and I pray that in his name and spirit we cherish our loved ones every minute of our lives.

A.R.T Accidents regular occurrence

A failure from the get go the A.R.T program has been plagued with destroying businesses , electric busses that don’t work , and because of poor planning we now live with regular accidents up and down central because the busses are dangerously close to the burque drivers. Whether it was a money grab scam or something else we need to fix this A.R.T , a solution would be to place the busses on one side of the street and open up central medians to cross traffic again, but r even better get rid of the busses all together and put a train that goes under the intersections and stretches to Rio Rancho! Now that will bring added revenue , make it safer and connect Rio Rancho better, hey let’s go Albuquerque, let’s go train status !

Governor Signs Abortion Bill, Republican Senators Respond


Governor Signs Abortion Bill, Republican Senators Respond

SANTA FE – Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham today signed legislation to repeal New Mexico’s abortion law. Senate Bill 10, sponsored by Democratic Senator Linda Lopez (District 11-Bernalillo) and others, repealed an entire section of law that among other things protected medical professionals from being forced to participate in abortions and required that abortions be performed by licensed physicians.

Senate Republicans responded to the Governor’s action with the following statements:

“Though the Governor and pro-abortion activists will claim this as a victory for women, the only victor in this bill is the multi-million dollar abortion industry,” said Senator Crystal Diamond (District 35-Dona Ana, Hidalgo, Luna, and Sierra). “With the stroke of her pen, the Governor has weakened standards of care for women, stripped conscience protections for medical professionals, and given the abortion industry unchecked power to operate under the radar in our state. New Mexico women and children deserve better.”

“This is a sad day for New Mexico,” added Senator Gregg Schmedes (District 19-Bernalillo, Sandoval, Santa Fe, and Torrance). “Pro-abortion activists have not been shy about their disregard for unborn children’s lives. Their actions during this Legislative Session, however, exposed their deeper motivations – forcing doctors and nurses to perform abortions
