The National Rifle Association spread around five figures to Nevada legislative candidates in 2010 and 2012, including to key Carson City players. The NRA has given to about a third of the current crop and in a bipartisan fashion. The contributions, while not overwhelming, indicate that the gun lobby is interested in squelching legislation in Carson City. Its biggest contribution, not surprisingly, was to ex-state Sen. John Lee, who proposed that campus carry bill now being pushed by newly...
Frankly, I had forgotten, until reminded on Twitter (of course!), how strongly pro-gun Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was when the Clark County Shooting Park opened in March 2010. Standing next to the NRA's Wayne LaPierre, Reid talked of him like a soldier in arms ("We have stood together in so many battles over the years.") and bragged of past, present and future efforts to oppose the assault weapons ban. I should have included Reid's remarks in my earlier post on Reid and guns -- hat tip...
If I didn't know better, I'd say the incumbent GOP boss stuffed the ballot box. The results of the site poll: Michael McDonald 44% (148 votes) Brian Krolicki 29% (96 votes) Sharron Angle 11% (37 votes) Sheldon Adelson 11% (37 votes) Mitt Romney 3% (12 votes) New poll up soon.....
This is one of those times when it becomes difficult, if not impossible, to separate the personal from the political. And for a political being as complicated, calculating and yet paradoxically erratic as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the personal impact may override anything else. Yes, even with the man I call Prince Harry, who would have certainly made Machiavelli blush at his mulifarious political schemes and who would have happily been Mick’s muse as he belted out “Sympathy for the...
County hospital CEO: "UMC is not being sold. UMC is not being privatized. No one will lose their job or benefits."
Here's what CEO Brian Brannman, whose facility is under assault from within and without, sent to his employees and had posted throughout the county hospital today -- an obvious attempt to reassure and quell percolating rumors: I want to take this opportunity to address the rumors and speculation that have been widely circulating regarding the future of UMC. You, our employees, are what keep this hospital running and providing the highest quality of care. You are also on the front lines, and...
