From the Weekly Alibi

Playing Chicken With Millions

The good stuff coming from the Legislature:

  • The capital outlay bill was filibustered by Sens. John Ryan and Rod Adair – proponents of the various projects that would have been funded should look to the private sector instead to get them done. An added bonus – because this didn’t pass, New Mexico doesn’t qualify for federal “matching funds,” either.
  • The proposed bans on same-sex marriages died in committee. Either marriage is a sacrament – a religious affair – and thus State government should adopt a total hands-off policy towards it, or it’s a civil institution, in which case government should be forbidden from denying it to people based on sexual orientation. Of course, there’s the idea that you shouldn’t have to get permission from the State and County to interact with other people.
  • The “Substance Abuse and Crime Prevention Act” was passed, which means that non-violent drug “offenders” go to a treatment system instead of prison. Of course, there exists the problem that such treatment programs could be more intrusive than prison.
  • Another bill requiring you to report how much of your cash you spend for political purposes died at the last minute.
  • The subsidy hand-outs for the film industry were cut back and capped at Ø50 million by the Legislature.
  • Alcohol servers who unknowingly sell alcohol to minors face a conviction for a petty misdemeanor with a maximum of six months in jail and a Ø500 fine, as opposed to a felony conviction with 18 months and a Ø5,000 fine.
  • No new abortion laws were passed, either restricting it (per William Sharer, Dennis Roch, Alonzo Baldonado and Conrad James) or subsidizing or encouraging it (HB 291).

From USA Today

Obama team: Libya is not a ‘war’

White House considering ‘all options’ in Libya

Back in 2007, then-Senator (now Vice President) Joe Biden said that if George W. Bush ordered military action against Iran, that Bush should be impeached. I wonder if he’s changed his tune now that Obama is ordering military action against Libya?
