I think the governor forgets that state property doesn’t belong to her, but to the people of New Mexico, who have broad and diverse interests. If one “special interest” is banned, all special interests should be banned. No animal husbandry events (can’t offend the vegans), no Spanish Market in Santa Fe (you have to be Hispanic to sell your crafts, and that’s discriminatory), no Indian Market, or International Folk Art Market for that matter either.
What a boring, vanilla world of oppression. (Maybe I can’t use “vanilla” as that’s primarily grown in Mexico, Tahiti, or Madagascar.)
Ok, so as some of us have learned, facts don’t matter. No critical thinking allowed. So when thinking of colors vanilla is white. Vanilla ice is white, vanilla yogurt is white. New York vanilla is almost white. So although the the vanilla bean is not white,. When mixed by Ben & Jerry it’s still the color of white. & Don’t try to give me that flavor argument, it doesn’t follow my agenda
The fact is, vanilla is not white. As one that uses vanilla in baking, I think of vanilla as usually being very dark brown, almost black at times, even vanilla extracts are dark. If one mentioned vanilla ice cream, yes milk is white, so the addition of vanilla, alone, would not change that, and as you pointed out flecks of vanilla in ice cream are not white, making clear that you understand that vanilla is not white. If you noticed in my post, I was making a joke. Also, the other poster was commenting on origin, not the color of the bean.
Yes he was. And I’ll bet it had something to do with “cultural appropriation,” and how we’re not allowed to use any number (it’s a growing list) of terms these days without running afoul of lefty laws.
Screw the Governor of NM. If she wants to deny a source of income to the State’s coffers, let Gun Shows spend their dollars where they are welcomed and appreciated. Once again, the taxpayers get screwed.
She also denies the venue employees (security, concessions, maintenance, ticket booth, parking) at these venues the ability to make any income. But with her mind set, she’d rather they be on unemployment so she can pocket/skim the Federal relief monies, progressive “D” attitude of keep folks on the dole and under the “GOVT’S CONTROL”. Maybe the show’s sponsor/host and vendors can file a breach of contract suit against her office and get a stay against her improper dictatorial actions so the show can be held regardless.
