He's absolutely right. I've been a Democratic operative in NM for the better part of 40 years, and anyone who follows State government knows full well it's the Democratic controlled Legislature that bears full responsibility for our 50th place standing in almost every important quality of life category.

All the talk about education, and we're still behind Louisiana and Alabama.

All the talk about environmental protections, and they frack Chaco Canyon and everywhere, allow ground water contamination, sold our water to Texas, and waited 25 years too long to support hemp, legal weed and chile production.

All the talk about poverty, and our Congresspersons (all Democrats) vote against a national $15 minimum wage and the local Reps actually think the millions given to the film industry has done anything but create temporary, low paying jobs for locals.

All the talk about crime, and gangs, and drugs and DUI's, and we have Dem judges letting folks off DUI's 4,5, 6 and 7 times until they kill someone.

Let's get REAL. I'm a lifelong Dem but I'm neither stupid nor blind. AOC and Jacob et al have it right - it's the FAUX LEFT that's kept us hoping fort changes that never come.

Biden? Against weed. Against single payer. Against corporate taxes. Against $15 min wage.

They're cowards, playing to the left's hopes and dreams to get reelected - while quietly promising their corporate owners to keep the status quo.

This guy never stops crying

So, comparing yourself to Christ, playing the race card and the sexual orientation card as a way of getting attention, making completely unfounded personal attacks on fellow members of the Senate, this is what the Senate needs more of?

Khal Spencer

Well, isn't that what the Progressive Woke Generation is all about? Power comes from racial identity, non-standard sexual orientation, and the victim card.

Richard Reinders

He is just following Washington’s lead.

Not to nitpick, but didn't Judas kiss Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane?

Ian Fe

You are correct sir.

Paul White

Certainly Wirth is a game player and intrigue artist, I had to confront him about it in the past and his insincere apology will be remembered. Be careful of going against the royalty, or you might end up in a kangaroo court, like how Egolf went after Trujillo with a setup full of lies.

It wouldn't surprise me to see the Dems try to "primary" Jacob after a public spat like this. But if he is strong in his district, it could be ugly.

Mike Johnson

Wow! Enlightenment and recognition of reality about what progressives are really doing and thinking is beautiful to watch. Thank you Jacob!

It occurs to me that republicans will resort to any method to discredit their democrat counterparts. Republicans can no longer win at an equitable competition with democrats, so, they resort to any means to try to heap discredit on them. It, seriously, puts in doubt ANY criticism I hear them rant about aimed at democrats.

Sen. Candelaria is a Democrat!
