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.

It just about slipped by us... yesterday was our blog-aversary. Yep, December 11, 2006 was the date of our first post. Just guess what we were talking about... Red Light Scam-eras.

Since that time, we've taken a look at a lot of different issues that affect the people of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County. As you may have noticed we certainly have our own ideas and we love to find things that the city would rather keep hidden and let you know about them. After all, government workers and elected officials work for us and we should know what they're up to.

But what really makes this site fun is our readers. Those of you who agree, disagree, and post little known information make this site what it is. The Internet is truly the new village square and we're proud to be a part of the exchange of information and the expression of ideas.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
When you come here and post comments or when we post our thoughts or information, we are all exercising our rights to assembly, speech, and in some cases petitioning the Government for redress of grievances. It's our belief that if the founding fathers could have imagined the Internet or a virtual village square, the blogosphere would have been the very thing they envisioned.

Thank you for reading Eye On Albuquerque but most of all, thank you for agreeing, disagreeing, arguing, and informing our readers and the people of Albuquerque.

When all is said & done, you will be a hero and the citizens of this city will get there just due.
I'm quite sure that this administration and it's politicos will be exposed for what they are. The news media has been shut down. Shame on them for not releasing what they know. You on the other hand 'Eye'is like "Radio Free Europe" back in the 50s and 60s. It's the only way the citizenry knew what was going on on the other side of the "Iron Curtain". Similar to the "Iron Curtain" that surrounds City Hall. Keep plugging away. Expose the scum.

I would like to let all the officers and citizens of varying political orientation/ideology of a very upsetting decision by Judge S. Clinton at Metro court on 12/13.
An officer had stopped a suspect for DUI, when he noticed the suspect digging around in his glove compartment with irregular intensity. The officer ran up to the car before the suspect could react, and noticed that the suspect had his hand on a handgun lying in the passenger seat. The suspect pleaded guilty to DUI today and his lawyer asked Judge Clinton to return the weapon. The prosecutor in this case objected, due to the obvious reckless and irresponsible actions of the driver (not to mention one would have to assume the driver was planning to attack the officer in the same manner Deputy J. McGrane was attacked). Judge Clinton, in all of her infinite wisdom and safety in Metro court, decided that the suspect SHOULD get his weapon back. The officer walked out of court, understandably upset. Again, I would like to share this information with all of you, especially the officers...of Judge Clinton's reckless disreguard for officers' safety.
Note to the editor of this blog: Please distribute this information, as I hope it will remind officers that no one will take care of them except each other. Thank you.

Certainly, I respect everyone's right to post Anonymous comments. On the other hand, when the operator of this site claims they are "part of the exchange of information and the expression of ideas" in "the new village square" I would like to remind him in the village square of old they could look each other in THE EYE.
