    First, last and only warning — it’s a Rhode Island issue, post it in the Rhode Island LP group. If it’s not at least tangentially related to New Mexico, the post gets deleted and the poster gets banned.

    Why pay ∅10-15 per ticket and an arm and a leg for snacks to watch it on someone else’s schedule when you can save some cash and watch it at your convenience?

    “This agency is a vital and crucial part of our government. They take care of and regulate on behalf on new mexico citizens”

    No, it isn’t, and no, they don’t.

    They take care and regulate on behalf of their sponsors and the sponsors of their political parties.

    The Roman historian and senator Tacitus understood this in the first and second century AD:

    Corruptissima re publica plurimae leges. (The more numerous the laws, the more corrupt the government.)

    Lao Tzu wrote in the Tao Te Ching (5th-6th century BC):

    The more laws and order are made prominent, the more thieves and robbers there will be. (Ch.56)

    If people could figure this out 2000 years ago, before the advent of the internet, why do so many people have trouble with these ideas today?
