New Mexico PPPs (fascism is here)
mar 9, 2013

[fascism] When the sewer gets there, we will send a registered letter saying they have 30 days to sign up for the impact fee and hook-up fee part [mandatory hook-up], and an additional 60 days to hook-up. [ppp; Cornelius]

[fascism] As clusters of homes are hooked up and the impact fee fund grows, that money then could be used to install more sewer lines. [ppp; pyramid scheme; Cornelius]

[fascism] "The federal and state governments told us in 2003 to 'Go do this.' All of those facts are important for the public to know." [Village Attorney Dan Bryant]

How PPPs Really Work
jun 27, 2012

e: ... it is not a conspiracy theory. It is a conspiracy fact. Here is the meaning of PPP:

1. Public-Private Partnerships – when private industry provides public services for profit. The original taxes for the services remain in place, but a duplicative “service for FEE” structure is added. It is FASCISM, and it should NOT be considered as a solution to the State’s budget woes. It promotes monopolies and destroys small business. If the stakeholder is not a shareholder, he has no voice.

4."LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- Las Cruces residents who have unpaid traffic citations from red light cameras risk having their city-owned water, sewage, and gas shut off, according to City of Las Cruces officials." [fascism]
