Mitt Romney: Callous And Just Plain Wrong

Yesterday, I saw perhaps the best LTE (letter to the editor) I’ve ever encountered here in Nevada. Steve Davis from Reno wrote this to The Sun: Mitt Romney’s solution to the housing crisis in Nevada — foreclose on thousands of unlucky families so investors can scoop up real estate bargains that they can rent out […]

#OccupyLasVegas: The Winner of Last Night’s Republican Debate?

Apparently, the scene inside The Venetian last night turned into a complete and utter train wreck. Mitt Romney continued to call for MORE foreclosures and more families losing their homes to the big banks. He also fought with Rick Perry over which of them hates Latinos more. Meanwhile, Michele Bachmann desperately begged to stay relevant […]

Have They No Shame?

Is this for real? Really? Did a bunch of Florida Republicans really boo an active duty soldier at last night’s GOP Presidential Debate? The audience at tonight’s GOP presidential debate in Orlando, Florida commemorated this week’s repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell [DADT] by booing Stephen Hill, a gay soldier, as he asked Sen. Rick […]

Dean Heller <3 Big Oil, But Not Working Class Nevadans

This was the scene outside Dean Heller’s Las Vegas office today. While Dean Heller continues to oppose anything he considers “not good enough“, meaning not painful enough for working class Nevadans, our country faces deep problems. This isn’t the first time Heller has felt the heat from his constituents, and I doubt this will be […]

Mitt Romney Jobs Plan Won’t Help

Earlier this week, Mitt Romney used North Las Vegas as his backdrop as he laid out his “jobs plan”. So what is Mitt Romney’s “jobs plan”, exactly? “The fundamental problem in today’s economy is that there’s not enough demand,” says David Madland, an economist at the liberal Center for American Progress. In fact, our corporations […]

For the Heck of It, Republicans Keep Denying Reality

Apparently, professional radical right whiners are not happy when the truth is told about Joe Heck and what he’s doing in Washington. Apparently I’m “embarrassing myself daily for the entire world to watch”. Wait, so telling the truth is now “embarrassing”? Lordy, someone needs to call the WHAAAAAA-MBULENCE! They’re even taking the crybaby act to […]

Joe Heck Refuses to Meet Constituents… So They Do “Town Hall” Without Him

After waiting the entire summer for Joe Heck to meet with constituents and answer the questions we have about what he’s doing in Congress, a group of Nevadans decided enough was enough. They mapped out his Dick Cheney like undisclosed hiding location “Congressional Office“, and then they paid his office a visit. If anyone still […]

Mark Amodei (& Joe Heck) to Nevada: Get Nuked!

This is in his district, and this would hurt his constituents if built… But Mark Amodei doesn’t care. For three decades, firm opposition to any sort of nuclear development for Yucca Mountain has been a rite of passage for any candidate seeking national political office representing Nevada. But the past few congressional races, Republicans have […]

Sharron Angle: She’s Back! (And She’s Not Alone.)

Apparently “Our Lady of Perpetual Campaigning” invaded California on Saturday to sell her books and raise money for her next campaign “meet with real patriots!” And if that wasn’t bad enough, their lousy attempt at Vaudeville comedy got even worse once they returned to Nevada (to torture us yet again!). The Tea Party Express continued […]

Joe Heck Brings “Pay-Per-View Congress” to Nevada

Yet again, the person who claims to be my member of Congress won’t get anywhere near me… Nor any of his other constituents who can’t pay Republican clubs to ask him questions. Oh yes, that’s right. “Pay-Per-View Congress” has come to Nevada with a vengeance, and we have Joe Heck to thank for that! Don’t […]
