Salome’s Stars

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The cautious side of your usually adventurous nature stands you in good stead this week. Someone might, indeed, be trying to pull the wool over the Sheep’s eyes.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Planetary alignment still causes unsettling situations. Consider delaying matters that aren’t a priority until the weekend. Cheer up! The next such alignment isn’t until 2028.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Family matters take precedence. Spend more time with those close to you. A career move sounds promising, but ask for more facts before making a decision.

CANCER: (June 21 to July 22) Your watchword this week is “tact!” While honesty is, of course, the best...

The only problem Biden has is that people think he’s a bad president

President Joe Biden has suffered a collapse in his standing generally, but, fundamentally, it’s because so few people think he’s doing a good job that he’s in such a perilous state.

the Economist/YouGov poll...

“Recently, members of Congress have expressed reasonable concern regarding federal agencies’s efforts to prevent firearms trafficking from the U.S.  into Latin America and the Caribbean. For instance, recent reports have shown that 70% of illegal guns recovered in Mexico are sourced from the U.S.,” wrote the lawmakers. “Transnational criminal organizations operating in Mexico then use these weapons to wage their drug war...

NM Democrats can send a message by voting for Williamson

E-mail Print PDF
President Joe Biden has clinched the Democratic nomination for the presidency. Voters in New Mexico still have an opportunity to weigh in on his agenda, however.

Marianne Williamson’s agenda is fundamental economic reform; “a government of the people, by the people, and for the people” has become “a government of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations” and we must change that.

The last 50 years have seen a $50 trillion transfer of wealth from the bottom 90% of our people to the top 1%, and the message of the Democratic Party should be, “That stops now.” That is how we will beat Donald Trump, and it is also how we will heal the country. A vote...
