We Are So Lucky!!!!! Let’s See Everything Closed!

Have you ever wondered about what would happen if no one came to your party? I'm sure that our Governor and our President have been thinking about this lately. They are both threatening to close up government if they don't get their ways. But it's possible that no one will care or even notice.

We Are So Lucky!!!!! Let’s See Everything Closed!

First, our Governor Martinez has threatened to close the entire New Mexico government. She is upset because the New Mexico Legislature worked and passed a bipartisan budget that raises some taxes. When you have no money you have to raise taxes somewhere. OR, was she mad that her picks for judges were not even considered by the Legislature? Juvenile!

Next we hear that our federal government might close on Friday. Talk about raging juveniles! Trump is mad that we won’t pay for a stupid wall.

So let’s make a list of all the things that we may see closed:
Courts – federal & state,
Libraries (maybe not all),
Parks, monuments, museums,
Post Offices?
All Federal & State offices for business,
And some transportation.

This is the way things are. The politicians have hissy fits and we suffer. It is time to look for new politicians. How fast can elections get here?
