The Piercing Truth

This is right from the dictionary and seems to describe Albuquerque, Berry and Schultz. Fascism (f ash ,izem) noun An authoritarian right wing system of government and/or social organization. (in general use) extreme right wing, authoritarian, chauvinistic and/or intolerant views or practices. Fascism tends to include a belief in the supremacy of one group over another, national, ethnic, especially social strata or monetarily; a contempt for democracy, an insistence on obedience to a powerful leader, and a strong demagogic approach.

Eye Poll: Neck and Neck

After an extended Eye Poll Eye readers are almost evenly split between Heather Wilson -53% and Steve Pearce - 47% in our unscientific poll (See the results here). Our gut feeling tells us that this is a pretty accurate picture of the Republican primary with both candidates running neck and neck.

This week we focus on how you feel about your safety in Albuquerque. APD's manpower levels have and continue to be an issue, but the real problem is our high crime rates. In addition, it's also important to determine public perception because perception often mirrors reality. Don't forget to vote!

Wilson or Pearce? It's not gonna matter. Udal is going to kick their ass. Finally, a Dem in that seat.

It's not even midnight yet, and it sounds like a warzone in my neighborhood. It's maybe twice as bad as usual.
Happy New Year, keep your head down. Safe? In this town? With Marty as mayor? And Ray as chief? ROTFLMAO, you've got to be kidding.

Do I feel safe? NO, I feel like a paranoid Freeman!

In the last couple of years my house has become a fortress, the only thing I don't have is a moat. That's because I plan on putting a garden on my roof! That will really save water.

I have a loaded gun on my night stand. Every opening on my house is alarmed, even the attic. That's because a burgler got into my attic, disconnected the alarm & then broke into the house. I have surviellance camera's inside & out, posted signs that say beware of dogs & electric fence. Also 2 huge not happy guard dogs.

I don't leave my garage door open even when I'm out front working on the lawn. I've had my house shot at, & drunken drivers run there cars into it. I can't let my kids play in the front yard. I watch them constantly when they're in the back yard.

And I live in the heights. No part of this city is safe anymore. But we are a sanctuary city, letting in & protecting all illegals. Including the Mexican mafia. Are people really stupid enough to believe the only one's coming over are the ones that want to work and learn our language?

What's this English as a second language being taught in our schools? Shouldn't English be the first language?

Go to the southwest side of the city, it's Juarez New Mexico. Even the Wal-Mart over there plays Mexican music. Most of the product labels are written in Spanish. All the electronic toys are in Spanish. No English computer's for my kids.

Illegals can buy a SS# or drivers license on the street. In fact as many as they want. They use as many aliases the can to prey on our welfare & medical care. Get presciptions for each name, & sell them on the streets.

Are America's streets paved with gold. Not mine, but for the illegals they are.

Amen and hallelujah.
I noticed the mexican music in wal-mart too, and it also pissed me off. That was the same day that I asked one of the workers where something was and she told me she didn't speak english.
This was at the walmart at coors and the freeway too. And have you noticed all the mexican markets going up in the area? I don't mind people coming here to work, but damn, learn the language, pay taxes, and get rid of your fucking pitbulls that run loose and try to bite everyone in the neighborhood. And no blame to Darren on this one, this is within the city limits. 9 out of ten people in this area don't speak english, and are not legal. Little Juarez? Hell no, we are in the middle of mexico city.

Well, I do mind letting them come here to work!! They take advantage, they bring their F*&$ING meth with them, their skanky pregnant girl-friends so they can have their snot-nosed ignorant kids in our hospitals on our dime! I deal with them every day and they're rude and act entitled. They act entitled because we allow it! Marty made this a sanctuary city and we all have to pay for it! He never has to be exposed to all the shit he created. When was the last time he was in Walmart? Now that our surrounding states are gonna kick them all out, guess where more and more of them will come? In a big, brown festering ball like a nest of cockroaches!!! So keep on pressing "1" for English--

I keep telling people that what we need to do is just take over mexico, then it will also be the united states, they will all be legal, and it won't cost me so much to go to cancun.

Let's all remember this used to be Mexico before the United States started a war based on a lie. Imagine that.

What I remember about this area being Mexico, is some cranky Spainish leader cutting off the legs of the Native's so they couldn't run away from their demise. And we honor this guy with a statue at Old Town.

And by the way, some of the first settlements in NM were found to be of Viking decent. Centuries before the Spainards.

So who's lying to who?

Hey, I resent that comment about the South Valley! Notice the Journal's article on killings in 07? Southeast Heights still the War Zone!

There is in fact a diffrence between Mexicans and Spaniards.

Wow Lie. And this blog started off as Wilson v Pearce. You must be so proud of the racism generated on this blog. Here's a new slogan for you, "Good for you, Lie on Albuquerque!"

There is a huge difference between Spaniards And Mexican Govt....in reality, although the Spanish laid claim to this area for many years the Mexican Govt. only held it for something like 23 years.
In 1821 rebels negotiated a status quo independence from Spain, and in 1823 a new congress declared Mexico a republic. In 1845 the U.S. voted to annex Texas (which at that time was already the "Republic of Texas formed in 1836) initiating the Mexican War. So if the native Americans (who held the land for thousands of years) arent fighting to get it all back from us the next people in line for it are the Spanish who held it from about 1521 to 1823 (302 years). Since they arent asking for it back some folks apparently think that the govt. that held it for 23 years (or 13 years if you follow the Treaties of Velasco which created the Republic of Texas) should have a claim? Texas has as much right to take back New Mexico (at least up to the Rio Grande) as the Govt. Of Mexico. People really ought to read a history book.

The National Policy Institute, "estimated that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period."

This is not about racism, it's about people bleeding us dry, and it doesn't matter to me if they were hispanic, mexican, canadian, or otherworldly, the fact remains that they are in this country illegally.

"this site started out as Wilson vs Pearce".

No, the focus was how we feel about our safety.

It's not racism, it's the truth. The people that have blogged don't feel safe. And the blogger that mentioned AZ pushing the illegals here is right on the point. CA pushed the illegals to AZ, now TX & AZ are going to push them out. So ding-dong, what state is between those two. And we live in a Scantuary city, yikes! CA, AZ & TX politicians know who votes, and it's not the illegals. Our politicol's need to get out of their bubble & quit being so delusional.

We have so much poverty now our welfare system won't be able to take it. Is La Raza going to pay for them. And yes, as as city employee I pay taxes too.

So far I haven't seen anyone say that they truly do feel safe. Even the ones that don't agree with the majority of the bloggers.

Well said, and thanks 2 posts up for doing so much research! And the one right after that one--you are correct and if you think it's bad now, just wait until 'lil Hugo Chavez changes the NM constitution and runs for Mayor once again. let's not let that happen! Either that or get used to pressing 1 for English!
