If the Constitution of the United States were written based on current policies and attitudes of those who govern us, its preamble would probably be something like this:

WE THE AUTHORITIES, of the State of America, in order to form the basis for societal perfection, establish social justice, insure domestic obedience, provide for the global defense, promote the welfare of special interests, and secure the bondage of national debt from ourselves to our posterity, do mandate and impose these executive orders upon the people of the Nation, formerly known as the United States of America.

— Arthur Berman

APS Attacks Business (Yet Again!)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — weeklysedition @ 9:48 PM

Current mood: pissed off

Apparently, our role as Taxpayers and Citizens in New Mexico is threefold —

  1. Shut up
  2. Obey the members of New Mexico’s (self-appointed) Ruling Classhole peerage
  3. Send money as demanded by our Lords and Masters

Never mind that allowing such as Bernstein to spend our hard-taxed treasure in a manner that insults drunken sailors will only perpetuate this sort of mismanagement.

Hat tip to Paul Gessing of the Rio Grande Foundation for letting me know about this one — Educational Hubris.

Maybe if business leaders were more outspoken on opposing the tax-and-tax-and-tax-some-more-then-spend-it-all-and-then-some proposals that come from our “esteemed leaders” in Santa Fe, One Civic Plaza and the APS administration, we might get more for our money? Ya think?

Maybe if some of the local printshops in town would tell the treasurers of the latest bond or tax hike drive to “go print it yourself,” we the Citizenry might see taxes, and thus the costs of living, go DOWN a bit. Ya think?
