    Donald Trump and conflicts of interest

    Donald Trump’s quote about the President’s exemption from conflict of interest regulations is an interesting interpretation. 

    But his emphasis is wrong.

    Mr. Trump says the President can’t have a conflict of interest – meaning nothing the President does is a conflict of interest.

    We mere mortals say the President can’t have a conflict of interest­ – meaning that the President must not have a conflict of interest.

    Trump inconsistent
    Donald Trump is backing down on some the most influential parts of his campaign. As president-elect most of his key issues that he intended to address and his plan to do so is beginning to take a back burner as he starts to set up his administration.

    Trump strongly said he would build “impenetrable physical wall on the southern border, on day one. Mexico will pay for the wall.”

    Abortion will always be available to affluent

    So soon-to-be President Trump would like to outlaw abortions or allow states to do so, if they so choose. Does he understand the consequences?

    Abortion will still be available to those with money — always has, always will. But lower income women will be forced to bear unwanted children.

    Resignations are in order at Luna
    Nepotism is a threat to most employees. Undue power attaches to those connected to powerful persons.

    However ethical or capable in fact, nepotic employees are perceived to be incompetent tale carriers and unfair competition.  The result is an unhealthy workplace seething with discontent.

    City portrayed unfairly
    There is no way I can remain silent about the recent article by the Albuquerque Journal and the harsh portrayal of boarding homes in Las Vegas and surrounding area.

    Having lived in Las Vegas all my life and volunteering as an ombudsman for the New Mexico State Agency on Aging for almost five years, I find it hard to learn that no state agency regulates boarding homes for recently released patients of the New Mexico Behavioral Health Institute.
