Lowest-income NM taxpayers pay 1.8 times the wealthiest

E-mail Print PDF
ALBUQUERQUE — A new study released Oct. 17 by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy finds that the lowest-income New Mexicans pay a state and local tax rate that is almost double what the state’s wealthiest residents pay as a share of their income.

The study, Who Pays? A Distributional Analysis of the Tax Systems...

Madame G guide to the stars WEEK OF OCTOBER 22

The Sun enters Scorpio on Oct. 23 and a Full Moon reveals all on Oct. 24. All in all, just in time for Halloween. This should be an interesting few weeks. Passionate and misunderstood Scorpio is the quiet and hidden danger lurking in the deep. Madame G recommends you tread carefully with this one. Be honest! Be true to yourself! Speak softly and carry a large stick.

 

Aries (March 21-April 19)

The only way to move on is to move forward. You can’t get to your destination if you’re looking in the rearview mirror. Do your best to reach your goals, but don’t get stuck on the details. Jeff Bazos said: “Be clear on vision and flexible on details.” You don’t have to know how...

The never-ending cycle of domestic violence and the family court system that feeds it

E-mail Print PDF
One year left to graduate high school, a young woman with the whole world in front of her with endless dreams and potential – dreams of not only serving in the U.S. Navy and commanding ships but to ultimately become one of the most powerful women – takes a quick turn to becoming a prisoner – a victim of domestic violence, forced to be submissive.

For the next 17 years and counting, she becomes focused solely on survival simply because of a boy who charms his way through a tangled web of lies, their children, and a slowly progressing legal system that fails to recognize and protect the victims of domestic violence post-divorce from the abuse of what I call, “DNA privilege.”...

Set Apart for a Purpose

“Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world.” John 17:17-18 (ESV)

In Jesus’ final hours, He prays for His disciples (those who follow Him with their lives). We can learn from this prayer Jesus’ priorities from what he asks of His Father in Heaven.

In our modern world, we seldom use the term “sanctify” or “sacred,” and it would help if we understood it better. To “sanctify” something is “to set apart for a sacred [holy] purpose,” “to make it free from sin.” Yet this still leaves the word a little foreign to us. Therefore, let us consider a similar example from the medical world as an...

Madame G guide to the stars WEEK OF OCTOBER 15

Venus and Mercury are in Scorpio Oct. 9-31. Prepare for intense communications that are fair and balanced. This will be a welcome change from the chaos of the previous weeks. Now is the time to dig deep and look for the truth. Madame G recommends you embrace the truth (not fear it) for as Keats said: “Beauty is Truth, Truth Beauty.” Good luck!


Aries (March 21-April 19)

The truth cannot hurt you, but fear of the truth will. You may not like what you hear and it might cause some emotional upset (or indigestion) but you’ll be grateful in the end. It’s like ripping off a band aide — rip it off quickly and don’t focus on it. In the end, it’s better to know where you stand and...
