Then, Wally and Paul address the political repercussions of this event which will be extremely problematic for conservatives nationwide, let alone here in New Mexico. One of the earliest developments involves a clampdown on conservatives on social media.

Before last week went completely off the rails Paul and Wally made some predictions regarding the results of the Georgia Senate Races. They discuss the results of those predictions.

RGF had an op-ed in the ABQ Journal over the weekend.

Despite all the doom and gloom predictions about the Trump presidency (not to mention a growing population and economy), US CO2 emissions haven’t been this low since the early 1980s.

United Van Lines’ annual report detailing which states people moved to and from during 2020 is out. What does it mean for New Mexico?

Are we really just “halfway home” on COVID 19? If so, what does that mean?

The left suddenly agrees that the ETA needs fixing. We said this at the time, but Wally and Paul suspect the motivations of these legislators don’t involve defending ratepayers.

Churches face fines due to violations of Gov.’s orders. Paul attended Christmas Eve services and shares his thoughts.

Finally, Paul and Wally make their predictions for 2021:

First, with the Legislature meeting, what will happen on Pot legalization, mandatory paid sick leave, tax hikes, do they attack oil and gas directly? What about another minimum wage hike? Will reforms to Social Security or the GRT happen? Will the Legislature vote to tap the permanent fund and if so, will they simply spend more on ECE or will they do something more/better? Will the Legislature pass and will effective limits on the Gov’s power in an emergency be put in place?

Will kids be back in school in-person this spring? How about this fall?

Will Cliff’s Amusement Park and Hinkle Family Fun Center reopen? How about the Albuquerque Isotopes?

When will restaurants in Bernalillo County be allowed to open up?

Will Virgin Galactic launch from Spaceport America? How about the Rail Runner?

Who will win the Senate races in Georgia?

 Biden has called the legislation a “down payment” on what we can only imagine will be an even bigger “stimulus” in the near future.

Also, since COVID dominated 2020 like few issues since at least World War II, Paul and Wally run through this article which details “12 times when the lockdowners were wrong.

With that, Wally and Paul review 2020 starting in “the olden days” of January 2020 with a “normal” New Mexico legislative session and a massive budget surplus and take us through the year’s events and right back up to the present.

Paul and Wally discuss what we know and what is happening now.

Federal stimulus agreement reached. It’s $900 billion and VERY ugly. Here’s some of what’s in it.

BCSO sheriff “won’t enforce unconstitutional laws under COVID response” What does this mean?

Deb Haaland named to head Secretary of Interior. While sympathetic to the idea of a Native American in charge at Interior, her policies would be devastating to New Mexico. Two separate posts on the issue here and here.

According to a new study from the University of Wyoming’s Dr. Timothy Considine, New Mexico would see even steeper revenue losses under the study’s forecasts. The state would lose on average $946 million per year in oil and gas tax revenue in the first five years under a leasing moratorium and on average $1.2 billion per year in tax revenue in the first five years under a drilling ban. A drilling ban would cause the state a $48 billion loss in oil and gas tax revenue over the next 20 years.

PFM Consultants have released a report on New Mexico tax policy. Overall it makes an absurd pitch for massive tax hikes, but there was some useful information in the report.
