I HAVEN'T RANTED ABOUT THE TICS FOR A WHILE. So now I will post a little thing about those who are elected to govern us, their subjects.
The legislature or the State of New Mexico is in session. A 60 day session, of which 15 or so days of those are already behind them. Today, in committee, a bill was tabled for further debate or to come to a vote later or just to die a natural death. Time will tell which of these happens. My issue, however, is why was this particular bill even written and brought up to take precious time. Well, our elected officials waste a lot of time, so why not on this, I guess. Maybe, after this, I need to be a little more specific on what I am ranting about.
There is a concern about students who have a truancy problem. So, according to the legislative committee or legislator, who brought this up, a solution was proposed. Take away their drivers licenses. I believe in education. Just ask my children. But, these students have a legal license and there is no law or rule that says any one has to be enrolled in school in order to have a drivers license. And I feel that the truancy problem needs to be addressed. But, take away their licenses? I think not. But give them to people who are here in the State and Country illegally. Yep, hand them out like candy. Even though our current governor wants to repeal that law, so far the legislature says nope. Let them get licenses. WHAT PART OF ILLEGAL DO THEY NOT UNDERSTAND.
Just a couple of other items. A short mention.
Back East a city, Boston, I think, has decided to fine individuals that don't shovel their walkway. Yep, I may have a heart attack from the cold and exertion, but as long as the sidewalk is clear, I am OK.
And even though NBC won't talk about it on the air, Brian Williams is away from his evening news cast because he lied about being in a helicopter under fire during the recent war. This supposedly happened a few years ago and he has repeated that story several times. Now, the truth is out and he may be also. Didn't Hillary Clinton get caught in a similar lie some months back? Wonder if this will be mentioned if she officially announces a run for the presidents office of the United States. Again, time will tell.
JUST HAVE TO WONDER ABOUT THE THINKING OF THOSE WHO GET ELECTED AND THOSE OF US WHO VOTE FOR THEM.
AND THAT'S THE VIEW FROM THE DITCH BANK
