NM Legislators Consider Regulating Use Of Zia Symbol

Add this latest event in the New Mexico legislature as the most recent incident of debating irrelevant, useless, silly and frivolous legislation while real crimes and all-out corruption runs rampant in nearly every state in the nation. I am giving the state of New Mexico the 2013 award for “silliest legislation which was debated in all seriousness.” Come on up here and get your little gold statue of a donkey’s ass.

  1. There are still a few good places for a prepper minded family or group to settle into, even parts of northern Cali. I actually do not live in CA any longer, but I am well familiar with the region. Water is apparently going to be a huge issue everywhere out west soon. Washington stare has some nice regions in the interior and along their south coast. As for taking someone elses’ well, that’s the way I roll. I actually do try to treat people well and not live like a thug, just because everyone else is. If you are looking to make a move, there are many wonderful places to consider – even still. Good luck and stay in touch!

  2. My father-in-law lives in Sacramento and suggested that we consider moving out there. Out of the frying pan, into the fire? No, thank you. I DID look into the area more and give it fair consideration but that whole region of CA is about to see harder times than people realize yet, I think – and the effects are going to ripple far and wide.

    Hollywood has a major influence over Santa Fe; we keep giving tax breaks/incentives to movie corporations to come film here and they tend to just reinforce the whole “If you don’t have it, ship it” mentality. The Spaceport America project has already drained private wells but oh well, it’s for the greater good so screw us. NM is on the same course as CA, we’ll just take a few more years to get there. Our agricultural industry down here in S. NM is not sustainable – pecan trees take more water than we have and already the smaller orchards are falling off. On the flip side, corn is suddenly a hugely popular crop here (subsidies, anyone?), vinyards and pistachio farms have become all the rage…add to our already mega-crops of green chile and there is no way we have the water to support all of it.

    I’m afraid the leaders are only ever going to react instead of being proactive; just like oil, if our well runs dry, we can always just take someone else’s well, right? :-/

  3. California is now facing the same toxic drought headache as well. All those years of allowing the super rich of Hollywood to water their 5 acre lawns with water piped in from the Oroville reservoir up north in Cali has come to this. Cali could actually run out of water within 90 days. Years back I was visiting Santa Fe and learned they were having water trucked in from out of state. [ Buy stock in companies which convert seawater to fresh water – that’s the future. ]

  4. This seemed to have been the year of the frivolous and inane for lawmakers. I thought the whole “government shutdown” thing was just bizarre. Meanwhile, the female lawmakers in DC pressed on and tried to get some things done. We need more women in state and FED legislature and less male silliness.

  5. As a native New Mexican, I’d love to be able to step up and defend our great lawmakers but wow, they made it beyond impossible this year. The actually said – out loud, publicly – that what we need to do for our drought conditions is to…PRAY FOR RAIN and not worry about it. So…no worries about water shortages – or illegal anal/vaginal probes carried out by LEO…let’s focus on controlling the use of a symbol. Makes my frickin’ head hurt worse than a tequila hangover.
