Letter to the Editor: Navajo leaders must unite against Trump

E-mail Print PDF
Editor,

With just over 460 days in the Oval Office, approximately 146 stays at his personal properties and over 107 golfing breaks, Donald Trump (A.K.A. “John Barron” as stated to Johnathan Greenberg, ex-Forbes reporter on May 17, 1984) has set the Gold Standard for collusion with American enemies both foreign and domestic, the deliberate obstruction of justice and immoral conduct inappropriate of a sitting United States president.

Trump’s salacious cavorting with Russian hookers and their Golden Showers, along with American porn stars and 17 women (some even while they he was married to two other women and “First Lady” Melanija (Knavs) Trump) should call into question the...

As budget-conscious consumers increasingly opt for the convenience and economy of online shopping, states like New Mexico are ramping up pressure on internet-based retailers to collect and remit the taxes states need to provide essential services.

While Amazon.com recently agreed to charge New Mexico consumers the state portion of the gross receipts tax (GRT), more change is needed to erase what states see as an unfair advantage for online retailers over local merchants who are required to collect and remit the entire combination of state and local taxes.

Appreciate what you have.

Aries (March 21-April 19)



One closed door can lead to a very open window—or an entirely new house. Don’t get trapped into the forever thinking that once you do something, that’s the end. In fact, that may only be the beginning. It’s easy to let yourself get lost and trapped in the unhappiness of what...

Upcoming New Mexico elections will test voter discontent, activism

E-mail Print PDF
With thousands of young people on the march, women activated by the “Me Too” Movement, and a new crop of candidates for state elections, this year’s elections could be an indication of our state’s appetite for reforming a system that my organization, Common Cause New Mexico, has often found wanting.

Common Cause is a non-partisan organization which does not endorse candidates, but like all ordinary citizens, we have a vested interest in a functioning democratic system which represents the voices of everyday people. We’ve been focused on controlling the influence of big money and special interests on elections and the decision-making process, guaranteeing access for qualified...
