Wasting time

Don't know about you, but it seems like I spend half my mornings listening to repetitive messages and broken-up hold music while trying to fix other people's screwups.

Just hope it isn't the end.

GOP twists Lujan-Grisham's words

This appears to be a NM GOP press release published in the online Grant County Beat:
Democrat candidate Michelle Lujan Grisham unmasked her motives for her bid for Governor, and it's not to better the future of New Mexicans. Lujan Grisham told the Washington, D.C.-based Politico she wants to be governor for one very specific reason: controlling the redistricting process, which would allow her to consolidate political power but wouldn't do much for New Mexicans who want to find a job and make sure their kids receive a high-quality education.

What she said, according to Politico:
‘It’s a good partnership to have folks who have federal experience, have relationships here but can be the governor of their states so they don’t execute some of these federal changes in a way that harms their citizens,’ said Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-N.M.), who announced in December that she would run for governor in 2018. ‘And you would be in charge of redistricting.’”

Italics mine. In other words, try to block destructive legislation coming out of DC. And a little redistricting wouldn't hurt, considering that we ended up with Pearce. The release even quotes the Politico article, but bases their response on one word.

If you wish to hide your character, do not play golf. Percy Boomer, golf pro

Dana Milbank reviews trump's golfing in Washington Post.

Some excerpts:

He breaks rules, exaggerates scores and ignores the game’s decorum.

“Trump will sometimes respond to a shot he duffed by simply playing a second ball and carrying on as if the first shot never happened,” SI reports. “In the parlance of the game, Trump takes floating mulligans, usually more than one during a round. Because of them it is impossible to say what he has actually shot on any given day, according to 18 people who have teed it up with Trump over the last decade.”

He drives his cart on greens and tee boxes. He talks through other players’ shots. He “doesn’t play a round of golf so much as narrate it, his commentary peppered with hyperbole,” SI reports. He says he’s attracted to the game by “walking down all those beautiful fairways,” but he only rides in a cart.

Maybe Trump has a chip on his shoulder because the old-boy golf clubs wouldn’t admit the gauche showman. So he built his own. Now the populist Trump boasts that he’s “the best golfer of all the rich people.”

Or maybe he can’t help himself. Not satisfied being a very good golfer, he shaves scores, boasts of championships un-won and tears up greens with carts — because he can.

Because he can. Just like he does in the white house.

Teabagger Pearce declares for NM governor

Got this in my email:

I want you to be the first to know


I wanted you to be among the first to know that I officially declared my candidacy for Governor today.

I hope you will take a minute to watch this video to see why I am running.

This decision was not made lightly. I have spent the last few months crisscrossing New Mexico, meeting with hundreds of families and businesses.

Time and again, I've heard the concerns about where New Mexico is heading.

Too many don't have access to a good paying job. Our children are trapped in a broken education system. Poverty is pervasive throughout every community. Crime is getting worse and touching nearly everyone.

I am running because I share those concerns. And as Governor, my commitment to you is to work hard every day to tackle these challenges head-on.

I am optimistic that with new leadership and a shared vision for our future, we can be successful. United, I know there is nothing we cannot accomplish.

If you believe that New Mexico can change, I ask you to join my fight to create a better future for our state. I ask that you become a Day One supporter in my campaign for Governor.

My friend, I cannot do this alone. I need your help, trust, and prayers on this journey.

United, we can do anything and I hope you'll join me.

Thank you in advance,

Steve Pearce

First off, I am NOT his friend. Second, everything he does is based on trickle-down economics; piss on the 99%. Third, all of his so-called "concerns" are just campaign bullshit. He doesn't give an horny rat's ass about anyone but himself and his 1% cronies.

Another dem announces for governor - GOP news release?

This was published in the online Grant County Beat:

Albuquerque, NM - Yesterday, Democrat State Senator Joseph Cervantes announced his campaign for the New Mexico governor's seat.

At the same time, Senator Cervantes' launched his gubernatorial campaign by denouncing the idea that New Mexico needs to attract new companies to our state, adding that luring out-of-state jobs have been too much of a priority for legislators trying to bring jobs to New Mexican residents.

Joseph Cervantes has kicked off his candidacy by announcing that he does not see the need to bring jobs and economic opportunity to this state," said Ryan Cangiolosi, Chairman of the Republican Party of New Mexico. "Cervantes doesn't seem to understand that our next governor should have a plan to put more people to work."

Cervantes' also enters the race as a direct challenge to Michelle Lujan Grisham, as he becomes the 3rd Democrat to enter the 2018 governors' race against her.

"Senator Cervantes is the third Democrat to challenge politician Michelle Lujan Grisham, and who knows, there will probably be more to step forward against her failed record of carrying water for Nancy Pelosi and her extreme agenda," Cangiolosi stated. "Cervantes and many Democrats see Michelle Lujan Grisham as an inferior candidate who has no real solutions for the people of New Mexico."

Obviously NOT Cervantes' press release!
