New Mexico Voted for Biden; Now Regrets Oil, Gas Suspension

New Mexico Voted for Biden; Now Regrets Oil, Gas Suspension (breitbart.com)
24 Jan 2021 ~~ By Joel B. Pollak

The State of New Mexico voted for Joe Biden in November, sending its five electoral votes to the Democratic candidate. Yet today the state is alarmed by newly-inaugurated President Biden’s 60-day suspension of oil and gas leasing.
As Breitbart News reported, Biden’s call during the campaign to “transition [away] from the oil industry” caused alarm in New Mexico, leading then-Rep. Xochitl Torres Small (D-NM) to distance herself from Biden’s position. She would go on to lose to Republican Yvette Herrell in the race to represent the state’s second congressional district. As Breitbart News noted at the time, New Mexico is “among the top ten energy-producing states in the U.S. It has 7% of U.S. oil reserves and is the third-largest oil-producing state, enjoying rapid growth in recent years.” Yet the state voted for Biden, regardless.
Today, many are expressing regret, as the Associated Press reported Jan. 22:

Comment:
Anyone in the fossil fuel industry should know that China Joey Xi is coming after their jobs. If they voted for him, they should wear it and not gripe and moan.
Amazingly, "everyday Democrat Sheep" think that their leaders would never do anything to hurt THEM. Well, they are about to learn the hard truth with each one of them that loses their job, and every time they go to the gas pump, turn on the lights in their homes and heat their homes.
Then there's the rise in taxes he's proposing:
This does not include the insane move of the release of all incarcerated illegal aliens ready for deportation.
I have friends in New Mexico. They're THRILLED with Biden. Breitbart on the other hands is well:

  • Overall, we rate Breitbart Questionable based on extreme right-wing bias, the publication of conspiracy theories and propaganda as well as numerous false claims.
You don’t have any friend and especially not in New Mexico where he is about to bankrupt multiple small businesses. Buyers remorse.
Give us some names, Azog. What small businesses in New Mexico are depending on the Keystone Pipeline and how many people do they employ?
How about the natural gas dependent industries in and about Lovington, NM. They won't be earning much if there is no gas.
The natural gas wells in Lovington, New Mexico were not shut down. Keystone pipeline carries crude to refineries, not natural gas, and like I said a (and you can verify with the Keystone pipeline map) the Keystone pipeline is hundreds of miles away and does not get near that state.
The Keystone pipeline is irrelevant to NM--why even bring it up. Gas and oil leases that were closed on federal land by Biden's XO however affect NM tremendously.
I did not bring it up. Did you fail to read the thread article(s) posted by the OP?
And I added to it. The guy you voted for wants to increase it to $15. Buttress that with the rise in gas prices and higher taxes and companies will be going out of business.
First off, every time the minimum wage has been raised, unemployment goes DOWN, not up, and businesses don't close as a result. As a business consultant, I would have expect you to know this.


I remember you fools saying something similar about gas prices under Obama, how he wanted to raise the gas prices, and has prices went DOWN under Obama. Biden isn't responsible for the gas price increases. They're the result of OPEC reducing production last year, and refusing to increase it back to pre-pandemic levels this year.

Gas prices have jumped to yet another multi-month high as crude oil prices rise amidst perceived improvement in the COVID-19 pandemic, which continues to pump prices up as demand shows renewed signs of recovery," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.

Biden isn't raising taxes on small businesses or low income families. Try reading his platform to help you appear less uninformed.

Care to continue to display your abject ignorance on everything to do with the economy, business regulation, and investment, or would you like to go another round.
You increase it by 50% in NM and businesses will either automate or close. Full stop.
We've been hearing this for the past 40 years, and not once in the 10 times that MW has been raised has any such thing happened. All you're doing is parrotting Republican lies about the economy. Furthermore, in nations where the minimum wage is actually $15 per hour, or more, none of what you're predicting will happen, is happening.

Everything that Republicans have told you about worker wages is a lie. Nations with higher minimum wages have healthier economies, higher employment, and a growing middle class, none of which is happening in the USA.
So I run a pizza shop in NM where I pay my employees $10.50 per hour and now I am forced to pay them $15.00 you in all your finance knowledge believe it will have zero impact on my business? If your theory is true then why not increase the min wage to $25 per hour?
Without knowing how many employees you have, and what your current sales are, or the size of your pizza shop, how could anyone possibly answer these questions?

What are your wages as a percentage of costs currently? How do they compare with restaurants of similar size and sales? You know standard consultant questions when determining the financial impact of any decision.

Only the fiscally illiterate ask why not raise wages to $X. $25 per hour is actually where they should be based on the COL from the original minimum wage.

The MW was steadily raised until Reagan was elected. Reagan didn’t raise it once in 8 years. It’s only been raised 9 times in the past 40 years while executive compensation has increased by 1000 percent over the same time frame. Conservatives think that giving executives 1000% raises helps the economy. There’s a lot more workers than there are CEO’s.

I take it you failed to read the link I posted or you wouldn’t be posting these dumb questions.

So you know that pizza shops have thin margins and people is one of the largest expenses so increasing that cost by 50% would have an adverse impact. The shop then has to raise prices or lay off people but if they raise prices then chains can put them out of business and if they lay off employees then service suffers. 50% is pure insanity but you knew that and decided to troll anyway.

This would place the U.S. on a parity with European salaries.... Rather than $15,00/hr that would place America in economical strife.....

I'll give her the consumer side--I go to Azog's Pizza shop and pay $22 for a large combo pizza. Tomorrow he raises the min. wage of his employees 33%. In order to keep the doors open he raises the price of his pizza to $26. I see the new price and decide to look for alternatives in the frozen food aisle of the super market. Azog feels the pinch, closes shop and goes to work for a big box store that gets all their shit from China where they pay $15 per month and spread viruses all over the world to trash economies that had the balls to put tariffs on their shit. Get it now?
No they don’t because Trump is Hitler

Will you raise your prices or quit and work for somebody else? Will you be competing with Pizza parlors that do not have to pay $15.00/hour?
Do you understand inflation?
Yes, I do. It is the general rise in prices associated with resource prices, of which labor is one.
And you think during a pandemic this is the time for inflation? I see.
I am not thrilled with inflation in general. With Colas and proper planning figuring a certain amount of inflation, it will always favor the debt free. Glad I planned ahead. Who knows, could be a good time to borrow (if you are certain you know what to do with it) before the cost of money goes up.

Biden isn't raising taxes on small businesses or low income families. Try reading his platform to help you appear less uninformed.

Care to continue to display your abject ignorance on everything to do with the economy, business regulation, and investment, or would you like to go another round.
You increase it by 50% in NM and businesses will either automate or close. Full stop.
We've been hearing this for the past 40 years, and not once in the 10 times that MW has been raised has any such thing happened. All you're doing is parrotting Republican lies about the economy. Furthermore, in nations where the minimum wage is actually $15 per hour, or more, none of what you're predicting will happen, is happening.

Everything that Republicans have told you about worker wages is a lie. Nations with higher minimum wages have healthier economies, higher employment, and a growing middle class, none of which is happening in the USA.
So I run a pizza shop in NM where I pay my employees $10.50 per hour and now I am forced to pay them $15.00 you in all your finance knowledge believe it will have zero impact on my business? If your theory is true then why not increase the min wage to $25 per hour?
Will you raise your prices or quit and work for somebody else? Will you be competing with Pizza parlors that do not have to pay $15.00/hour?
~~~~~~
If the law goes into effect at $15.00 now instead of 2026, sure those "Pizza Parlors" hiring illegal aliens will pay them less than $15,00/hr but will be forced to fire part of their existing workers.
That is why construction is is going bad. They pay their construction crew boss $15,00 and $20.00/hour and the illegals $7.00/hr or less. They are low skilled workers to boot.
That is why China Joey is opening up the border.

New Mexico Voted for Biden; Now Regrets Oil, Gas Suspension

New Mexico Voted for Biden; Now Regrets Oil, Gas Suspension (breitbart.com)
24 Jan 2021 ~~ By Joel B. Pollak

The State of New Mexico voted for Joe Biden in November, sending its five electoral votes to the Democratic candidate. Yet today the state is alarmed by newly-inaugurated President Biden’s 60-day suspension of oil and gas leasing.
As Breitbart News reported, Biden’s call during the campaign to “transition [away] from the oil industry” caused alarm in New Mexico, leading then-Rep. Xochitl Torres Small (D-NM) to distance herself from Biden’s position. She would go on to lose to Republican Yvette Herrell in the race to represent the state’s second congressional district. As Breitbart News noted at the time, New Mexico is “among the top ten energy-producing states in the U.S. It has 7% of U.S. oil reserves and is the third-largest oil-producing state, enjoying rapid growth in recent years.” Yet the state voted for Biden, regardless.
Today, many are expressing regret, as the Associated Press reported Jan. 22:

Comment:
Anyone in the fossil fuel industry should know that China Joey Xi is coming after their jobs. If they voted for him, they should wear it and not gripe and moan.
Amazingly, "everyday Democrat Sheep" think that their leaders would never do anything to hurt THEM. Well, they are about to learn the hard truth with each one of them that loses their job, and every time they go to the gas pump, turn on the lights in their homes and heat their homes.
Then there's the rise in taxes he's proposing:
This does not include the insane move of the release of all incarcerated illegal aliens ready for deportation.
I have friends in New Mexico. They're THRILLED with Biden. Breitbart on the other hands is well:

  • Overall, we rate Breitbart Questionable based on extreme right-wing bias, the publication of conspiracy theories and propaganda as well as numerous false claims.
You don’t have any friend and especially not in New Mexico where he is about to bankrupt multiple small businesses. Buyers remorse.
Give us some names, Azog. What small businesses in New Mexico are depending on the Keystone Pipeline and how many people do they employ?
How about the natural gas dependent industries in and about Lovington, NM. They won't be earning much if there is no gas.
The natural gas wells in Lovington, New Mexico were not shut down. Keystone pipeline carries crude to refineries, not natural gas, and like I said a (and you can verify with the Keystone pipeline map) the Keystone pipeline is hundreds of miles away and does not get near that state.
The Keystone pipeline is irrelevant to NM--why even bring it up. Gas and oil leases that were closed on federal land by Biden's XO however affect NM tremendously.
I did not bring it up. Did you fail to read the thread article(s) posted by the OP?
And I added to it. The guy you voted for wants to increase it to $15. Buttress that with the rise in gas prices and higher taxes and companies will be going out of business.
First off, every time the minimum wage has been raised, unemployment goes DOWN, not up, and businesses don't close as a result. As a business consultant, I would have expect you to know this.


I remember you fools saying something similar about gas prices under Obama, how he wanted to raise the gas prices, and has prices went DOWN under Obama. Biden isn't responsible for the gas price increases. They're the result of OPEC reducing production last year, and refusing to increase it back to pre-pandemic levels this year.

This is not dyer. Several states have already passed $15.00 Minimum wage.... President Biden :“Florida just passed it, as divided as that state is, they just passed it,” he said. “The rest of the country is ready to move as well.”
California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York have also passed state laws to increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour.

It will be alright. I vacation a lot in Florida. In 2019 the contractors working rebuilding after the Hurricane there said nobody working for minimum on his jobs, even offering me a job at a fair salary for my background in the millwork and construction trades, and I have been retired for 5 years. I talked to people at restaurants who told me they could not even get highschool kids at minimum wage.
It is coming. Don't sweat it, deal with it. Nothing but a business school problem. If you didn't go, hire somebody that did. Don't call me. I'm still retired and planning to stay that way and keep enjoying myself.

Without knowing how many employees you have, and what your current sales are, or the size of your pizza shop, how could anyone possibly answer these questions?

What are your wages as a percentage of costs currently? How do they compare with restaurants of similar size and sales? You know standard consultant questions when determining the financial impact of any decision.

Only the fiscally illiterate ask why not raise wages to $X. $25 per hour is actually where they should be based on the COL from the original minimum wage.

The MW was steadily raised until Reagan was elected. Reagan didn’t raise it once in 8 years. It’s only been raised 9 times in the past 40 years while executive compensation has increased by 1000 percent over the same time frame. Conservatives think that giving executives 1000% raises helps the economy. There’s a lot more workers than there are CEO’s.

I take it you failed to read the link I posted or you wouldn’t be posting these dumb questions.
Do you know what works better than the government mandating minimum wage? Not fucking over the economy by allowing those "not bad folks" in China that were bankrolling your kid to hide the fact that they let a virus get loose until it was on our shores. Not killing the energy sector here because you and your kid have obligations to Ukraine and energy is THEIR thing. The 2.3 % unemployment that we enjoyed under Donald Trump in my area raised the average unskilled wage by almost 25% in my county. Too bad that the demented creeper liberals installed is never going to make that happen.

Yes, you're right and each of these state are in near bankruptcy.... California is so bad that Newsom and his Dem legislation are proposing an "exit tax" for those that are leaving the state.

What did I miss? By the article and the Executive Order, what New Mexico Projects were put on hold? Don't remember seeing it mention one, and the Keystone pipeline is several hundred miles away. It is heartening to see good republicans heeding the desires of The United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters. I always thought you guys were anti-union.

~~~~~
No wonder you're a Democrat. Ignorance is your prime suit.
Oh, OK. I read the article you posted. So it is just that they happen to be republican and happen to be against the President's action in general, as the pipeline is hundreds of miles away and there is no plan to divert it through New Mexico. You notice, they did not even name a single job or state business related to it, yet the RPNM (Republican Party of New Mexico) wants us to believe that 100,000 people in New Mexico depend on the pipeline for their lively hood. I don't think so. Try again.
NM relies on the gas and oil industry for the majority of its revenue.

Very true and their production has not been effected. Nobody anywhere has named a single project or production facility that is shut down by the order in that state.
Biden placed a 60 day moratorium on leases and drilling permits which could become permanent.
Let's see if they do. I suspect they will not, except maybe the Alaskan Arctic Wildlife Refuge.
NM better fight against it hard. This puts 62k jobs at risk.

I am not sure why they thought Biden would do anything differently. There own faults for being ignorant and not doing research on the creep Joe.

He should abolish our useless drug war to help pay for infrastructure upgrades.
And stop shelling out over 100 billion on illegals. That number will double in a year.
That it will. He stopped construction on the wall and you can bet thousands of illegals will be heading for the USA. They already cost we tax payers billions each year.

Guess the jack ass doesn't care that most Americans want ALL illegals out of our country.

Then there's the rise in taxes he's proposing:
This does not include the insane move of the release of all incarcerated illegal aliens ready for deportation.
I have friends in New Mexico. They're THRILLED with Biden. Breitbart on the other hands is well:

  • Overall, we rate Breitbart Questionable based on extreme right-wing bias, the publication of conspiracy theories and propaganda as well as numerous false claims.
You don’t have any friend and especially not in New Mexico where he is about to bankrupt multiple small businesses. Buyers remorse.
Give us some names, Azog. What small businesses in New Mexico are depending on the Keystone Pipeline and how many people do they employ?
How about the natural gas dependent industries in and about Lovington, NM. They won't be earning much if there is no gas.
The natural gas wells in Lovington, New Mexico were not shut down. Keystone pipeline carries crude to refineries, not natural gas, and like I said a (and you can verify with the Keystone pipeline map) the Keystone pipeline is hundreds of miles away and does not get near that state.
The Keystone pipeline is irrelevant to NM--why even bring it up. Gas and oil leases that were closed on federal land by Biden's XO however affect NM tremendously.
I did not bring it up. Did you fail to read the thread article(s) posted by the OP?
And I added to it. The guy you voted for wants to increase it to $15. Buttress that with the rise in gas prices and higher taxes and companies will be going out of business.
First off, every time the minimum wage has been raised, unemployment goes DOWN, not up, and businesses don't close as a result. As a business consultant, I would have expect you to know this.


I remember you fools saying something similar about gas prices under Obama, how he wanted to raise the gas prices, and has prices went DOWN under Obama. Biden isn't responsible for the gas price increases. They're the result of OPEC reducing production last year, and refusing to increase it back to pre-pandemic levels this year.

Gas prices have jumped to yet another multi-month high as crude oil prices rise amidst perceived improvement in the COVID-19 pandemic, which continues to pump prices up as demand shows renewed signs of recovery," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.

Biden isn't raising taxes on small businesses or low income families. Try reading his platform to help you appear less uninformed.

Care to continue to display your abject ignorance on everything to do with the economy, business regulation, and investment, or would you like to go another round.
You increase it by 50% in NM and businesses will either automate or close. Full stop.
We've been hearing this for the past 40 years, and not once in the 10 times that MW has been raised has any such thing happened. All you're doing is parrotting Republican lies about the economy. Furthermore, in nations where the minimum wage is actually $15 per hour, or more, none of what you're predicting will happen, is happening.

Everything that Republicans have told you about worker wages is a lie. Nations with higher minimum wages have healthier economies, higher employment, and a growing middle class, none of which is happening in the USA.
So I run a pizza shop in NM where I pay my employees $10.50 per hour and now I am forced to pay them $15.00 you in all your finance knowledge believe it will have zero impact on my business? If your theory is true then why not increase the min wage to $25 per hour?
Will you raise your prices or quit and work for somebody else? Will you be competing with Pizza parlors that do not have to pay $15.00/hour?
~~~~~~
If the law goes into effect at $15.00 now instead of 2026, sure those "Pizza Parlors" hiring illegal aliens will pay them less than $15,00/hr but will be forced to fire part of their existing workers.
That is why construction is is going bad. They pay their construction crew boss $15,00 and $20.00/hour and the illegals $7.00/hr or less. They are low skilled workers to boot.
That is why China Joey is opening up the border.
This is not dyer. Several states have already passed $15.00 Minimum wage.... President Biden :“Florida just passed it, as divided as that state is, they just passed it,” he said. “The rest of the country is ready to move as well.”
California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York have also passed state laws to increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour.

It will be alright. I vacation a lot in Florida. In 2019 the contractors working rebuilding after the Hurricane there said nobody working for minimum on his jobs, even offering me a job at a fair salary for my background in the millwork and construction trades, and I have been retired for 5 years. I talked to people at restaurants who told me they could not even get highschool kids at minimum wage.
It is coming. Don't sweat it, deal with it. Nothing but a business school problem. If you didn't go, hire somebody that did. Don't call me. I'm still retired and planning to stay that way and keep enjoying myself.
You don’t know one iota about economics and finance. You’re 100% wrong. I do this for a living and people are sweating it. Especially small businesses. Target may afford to pay $15/hour to some useless hack to fold towels. However, a small kitchen and tile shop cannot. Contractors never pay minimum wage, that is like saying engineers won’t work for minimum wage. You’re also lying. Students will always work for min wage as those are typically the only jobs they can get. How do you live with yourself? I sweat it because it’s stupid and negatively impacts my clients. I do Not care if states do it but federal min wage is stupid. $10 in NM is a lot more than $10 in MA. You’re such a leftist it’s scary. And it’s dire not dyer. You’re also grammatically challenged.

Stories like this show why Trump did not lose PA and MI. Both dependent on industries targeted by Climate change bullshit. There is no way they voted their livelihoods away.

The Democrats might admit the massive fraud if this keeps up.
Stories like the bullshit posted by Breitbart? Hardly. The right lied about Biden's energy proposals and they're still lying about them to gin up the kind of outrage you just posted.

Basically, Biden is restoring the rules and climate regulations of the Obama Administration, the Administration responsible for making the USA energy independent, and to reverse the damage to the air all Americans breathe, by the Trump Administration.

Even Trump's own EPA said that the new American standards for air and water would cost thousands of American lives. The best thing about a President doing everything by EO, is that all of it is easy to undo. Biden will then legislate the new standards so that the next President can't undo them again.
That is not a story, it is a fact. PA and MI were stolen. No doubt in my mind. Those regulations killed jobs under Obama too.
GA, NV and AZ were also stolen.
