    Wednesday, angry liberals took to Twitter showing us what has become obvious– New Mexico is the late-term abortion Capitol of the region (and some might even argue, the nation). Radical Texas progressive activists, of the same kind who joined the Wendy Davis campaign in making fun of wheelchair-bound Gov.

    Leftist utopia: A wonderful world without plastic bags!

    A utopia without plastic bags?!

    Are powerful unions a thing of the past?!

    Are unions “dying”? With the path unions are currently heading, they may soon be thing of the past.   They’ve moved from their focus from advocating for safe work conditions and fair pay, to political organizations using their network to influence the political realm. Southern New Mexicans who worked the mines decades ago were surprised when the Bayard, New Mexico Freeport McMoRan owned mine “decertified” or | Read More »
