    It's not killing this city's economy.
    What small town has three McDonalds and two Wal-Marts?

    Santa Fe is the capital so most jobs are government (State, city and county) and a lot of people commute here to work from Albuquerque.... which is the big city of New Mexico.

    I guess the sizes are different in the U.S.. Here a town is everything between I think 1500 and 100,000 people anything larger is a city. Generally anything over 50,000 is a large town.

    So what you are saying is you come from a long line of government free-loaders taking government handouts? lol

    quite so,but iwouldnt call it freeloaders,it was blm land that couldnt be sold unless the govt paidpeople to move there.

    instead of paying them,they gave each person 5 free acres under the requirement they build a house on it.cali wasnt the only state to do it,kansas does the same,so do many other states,its mostly a move to get people to move into empty land that isnt worth a dime unless people actually live there.

    Yeah I was just giving you ****.

    Perhaps they should do that for the nasty scab on the country called West Texas.
