Protesters March Against Border Wall

ALBUQUERQUE—New Mexicans have seen their personal income rise faster than the national average over the past few years, tablets according to a new report released today by New Mexico Voices for Children. Job growth has also been strong, infertility but both of those indicators seem to have peaked and are now slowing.

“2007 was a good year economically, ailment but the national recession caught up with us much sooner than it usually does,” said Gerry Bradley, Research Director for New Mexico Voices for Children. The advocacy group released its annual “State of Working New Mexico” report today through its data analysis program, the Fiscal Policy Project. “Job growth has slowed to between one and one-half of a percentage point,” he added.

Still, New Mexico has fared better than some of our neighboring states. Our median hourly wage actually surpassed Texas in 2007, and our real median household income rose. Median household incomes fell in Arizona and Utah, when adjusted for inflation.

“We had some really strong economic growth in 2006 and 2007, and we’ve been enjoying some fairly positive trends,” Bradley said. “For example, our per capita personal income ranking was 47th in 2001. It had risen to 43rd by 2006. The state’s ranking will not improve further – this is a good as it gets.”

Of course, New Mexico is still plagued with a poverty rate that is higher than the national average and we also receive less per capita in ‘transfer payments’ – that is, income from assistance programs like Medicare, Social Security, and Food Stamps – than does the U.S. as
a whole.

“While this is good news for New Mexico’s economy, the state still faces significant challenges in areas such as health care coverage and child poverty,” Eric Griego, Executive Director of NM Voices said. “We need to make investments in key areas such as early childhood education, health care, and adult basic education if we want to see long-term sustained improvement in our state’s economy.”

Dennis Kucinich said in five minutes what bloviating Democrats mostly avoided in three days of speeches at Democratic Convention in Denver. The only progressive among the candidates who ran for the party nomination, physician Kucinich was shunted aside by the media during the debates and his candidacy marginalized. Too much speaking of truth to power, tablets too much hard-hitting reality, check and then he had the audacity to introduce articles of impeachment against Cheney and Bush in the House of Representatives.

Congressional leaders wouldn’t touch that hot potato these days, let alone in an election year, despite voluminous evidence that the lies and cover-ups connected with the Iraq war, national security,  the CIA and other abuses of executive power warranted a full-blown investigation for violations of their duties and the oath they swore to protect and defend the Constitution.

In Denver, denied a slot in prime time, Kucinich nonetheless stirred the delegates to a fever pitch as he passionately recited a laundry list of how the Bush administration has heaped disaster on top of catastrophe for the nation and most of its population during the last eight years (see speech transcript and video on this site).

Now comes word that the Obama campaign, which edited every speech except Bill Clinton’s, redacted the best line of Kucinich’s address.

From Betsy Rothstein at The Hill, (http://thehill.com/leading-the-news/obama-tightens-grip-on-podium-speeches-2008-08-26.html) reporting on what happened:

“Yet not every speech has been completely overhauled. Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), who was asked by Obama to speak about the economy, was scheduled to deliver his speech Tuesday afternoon. The Obama campaign struck just one line from his speech, which slammed the Republicans and the Bush administration, according to a Democratic source.

“That line, addressing Republicans, read: ‘They’re asking for another four years — in a just world, they’d get 10 to 20.’

Sometimes an inflammatory suggestion may not be politically correct, which I’m sure is what the Obama folks were thinking. But the unspoken I-word (impeachment) is not only appropriate but should have been an essential pursuit for any legislator of conscience — to challenge executive abuse of power and thereby prevent its future occurrence.

We learned John McCain’s true colors on Friday when he made public his pick for vice president. Incredibly, nurse
in introducing Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, gonorrhea
44, who has less than two years of experience at the state level and zero foreign policy experience, McCain repeated his campaign theme: “She’s exactly who this country needs to help me fight the same old Washington politics of ‘Me first and country second.’”

I guess in politics if you say something often enough some people will be gullible enough to believe the baldest lies.

McCain has repeatedly accused Obama of putting his personal ambitions ahead of the nation’s; was the selection of Palin supposed to convince us of McCain’s patriotic self-denial? When a 72-year-old man who has had melanoma several times chooses a running mate whose previous experience was serving as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, a town of 6,700 people, can he be serious when he proclaims she’s ready to be president? The larger question raised is why every American shouldn’t run for president if Sarah Palin is ready to step in and take over. Well, maybe we can’t blame McCain for that since it was George W. Bush who set the bar below sea level.

I have a few more questions, John:

Is there just a touch of cynicism in selecting a woman whose stance on abortion and creationism has the rabid right salivating and who might also draw some Hillary supporters who want nothing more than to see a woman in the White House?

When in your first major decision as (presumptive) nominee you tell the American people you’d install a novice a heartbeat away from the Oval Office and then insult our intelligence by claiming the contrary, are we supposed to be impressed with your altruism and sincerity?

Do you acknowledge any shreds of ambition at all in your litany of maneuvers and flip-flops to get the nomination and win the election, or are you too senile to remember them?

Let’s look at your campaign, John: more corporate tax breaks for the wealthy,  no timetable for leaving Iraq, more unilateral muscle-flexing around the globe, no national health care plan, pandering to evangelical Christians, a cynical, negative and hypocritical election strategy…yes, John, you’re quite the reformer.

And now we know how much to trust your judgment as commander in chief.

Bush who set the bar below sea level.

I have a few more questions, John:

Is there just a touch of cynicism in selecting a woman whose stance on abortion and creationism has the rabid right salivating and who might also draw some Hillary supporters who want nothing more than to see a woman in the White House?

When in your first major decision as (presumptive) nominee you tell the American people you’d install a novice a heartbeat away from the Oval Office and then insult our intelligence by claiming the contrary, are we supposed to be impressed with your altruism and sincerity?

Do you acknowledge any shreds of ambition at all in your litany of maneuvers to get the nomination and win the election, or are you too senile to remember them?

Let’s look at our campaign, John: more corporate tax breaks for the wealthy, a long history of cozy relations with lobbyists, no timetable for leaving Iraq, more unilateral muscle-flexing around the globe, no national health care plan, pandering to evangelical Christians, a cynical, negative and hypocritical election strategy…yes, John, you’re quite the reformer.

And now we know how much to trust your judgment as commander in chief.

We learned John McCain’s true colors on Friday when he made public his pick for vice president. Incredibly, unhealthy
in introducing Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, prostate
44, who has less than two years of experience at the state level and zero foreign policy experience, McCain repeated his campaign theme: “She’s exactly who this country needs to help me fight the same old Washington politics of ‘Me first and country second.’”

I guess in politics if you say something often enough some people will be gullible enough to believe the baldest lies.

McCain has repeatedly accused Obama of putting his personal ambitions ahead of the nation’s; was the selection of Palin supposed to convince us of McCain’s patriotic self-denial?

So now we hear McCain and Palin are headed to the Gulf region to show support for expected hurricane victims. AP reports, more about
“[McCain aides] said the McCains and Palins want to check on preparations because they are concerned about the people threatened by the storm….”

What a great idea! Just what the Gulf Coast needs right now is a tour by national candidates that will tie up law enforcement in motorcades and security and take money and attention away from preparedness efforts.

I have a better idea: If McCain is so concerned he should offer to open his seven homes to refugees. His 15-acre spread in Hidden Valley, Arizona could accommodate quite a few, as could his merged 7,000-square-foot condos in Phoenix. The indoor waterfall could provide public showers, and John could man the barbecue grill once Sarah gets some moose burgers flown in from Alaska and Cindy comes up with a few original family recipes.

When in your first major decision as (presumptive) nominee you tell the American people you’d install a novice a heartbeat away from the Oval Office and then insult our intelligence by claiming the contrary, are we supposed to be impressed with your altruism and sincerity?

Do you acknowledge any shreds of ambition at all in your litany of maneuvers and flip-flops to get the nomination and win the election, or are you too senile to remember them?

Let’s look at your campaign, John: more corporate tax breaks for the wealthy,  no timetable for leaving Iraq, more unilateral muscle-flexing around the globe, no national health care plan, pandering to evangelical Christians, a cynical, negative and hypocritical election strategy…yes, John, you’re quite the reformer.

And now we know how much to trust your judgment as commander in chief.

We learned John McCain’s true colors on Friday when he made public his pick for vice president. Incredibly, diagnosis in introducing Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, 44, who has less than two years of experience at the state level and zero foreign policy experience, McCain repeated his campaign theme: “She’s exactly who this country needs to help me fight the same old Washington politics of ‘Me first and country second.’”

I guess in politics if you say something often enough some people will be gullible enough to believe the baldest lies.

McCain has repeatedly accused Obama of putting his personal ambitions ahead of the nation’s; was the selection of Palin supposed to convince us of McCain’s patriotic self-denial? When a 72-year-old man who has had melanoma several times chooses a running mate whose previous experience was serving as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, a town of 6,700 people, can he be serious when he proclaims she’s ready to be president? The larger question raised is why every American shouldn’t run for president if Sarah Palin is ready to step in and take over. Well, maybe we can’t blame McCain for that since it was George W. Bush who set the bar below sea level.

So now we hear McCain and Palin are headed to the Gulf region to show support for expected hurricane victims. AP reports, more about
“[McCain aides] said the McCains and Palins want to check on preparations because they are concerned about the people threatened by the storm….”

What a great idea! Just what the Gulf Coast needs right now is a tour by national candidates that will tie up law enforcement in motorcades and security and take money and attention away from preparedness efforts.

I have a better idea: If McCain is so concerned he should offer to open his seven homes to refugees. His 15-acre spread in Hidden Valley, Arizona could accommodate quite a few, as could his merged 7,000-square-foot condos in Phoenix. The indoor waterfall could provide public showers, and John could man the barbecue grill once Sarah gets some moose burgers flown in from Alaska and Cindy comes up with a few original family recipes.

Marchers protesting the construction of a barrier along the border walked from Socorro Mission to the Tigua Mission before their 10 am rally Sunday. They then travelled by caravan to the place on the Border Highway where heavy steel beams are being set to support a barricade between El Paso and Juarez. The beams can be seen from the Border Highway between the Yarbrough and Zaragoza exits.

People from New Mexico and from as far away as Sierra Blanca participated in the march which began in Fort Hancock Wednesday night and continued each morning through difficult weather conditions toward El Paso’s three valley missions. Sunday’s early events were covered by two local television stations, ailment but one of the marchers said they had been invisible for the last three mornings.

About 40 marchers made the trek.
