Our local Senator George Munoz made it clear last year that our myriad of local vagrancy, alcohol and poverty problems, which have only become worse after decades of the same progressive statist approach, should not be a “blame game”but should be about solutions.

His solution is to keep the status quo. The voters of New Mexico spoke in November sending the clear message they are fed up with democrat solutions, which keep our state economically trailing our neighboring states as well as nationally.

Blame the stars! It’s roasting outside and you’re still ordering your lattes extra hot. You’re still sporting leather riding boots and a lightweight coat. You feel great, but your friends look at you a bit oddly. I call it the contrary star and you’re under its spell.
