Good morning, everyone. I went to see “Last Vegas” in Reno (that seems odd) and was stunned at its awfulness. Not since “The Big Wedding,” which also starred Robert De Niro, have so many debased themselves for so much money. Not funny, too predictable, so dumb. And four Oscar winners! Are they all that hard up for money? I once thought about being a movie reviewer, and I have to believe if I were, I would be despairing now about the state of Hollywood instead of the state of politics. The film...
Good morning, everyone. The great Ron Brownstein encapsulatedthe short and long term problems for Democrats vis a vis Obamacare this morning in a must-read column. This is going to have an impact here, although it’s a bit early to tell how much and where. I was polled last night (live caller) by some GOP-leaning group (couldn’t find out which one) that asked how I felt about Obamacare and where I leaned in voting for Congress. Can the Republicans screw up this political opportunity? Not with...
Good morning, everyone. Still on a high from Wednesday’s Sun Youth Forum, where I get to spend time with precocious high schoolers who know more about current events and issues than many candidates for the Legislature. It’s the one day every year that I know my faith in the future will be restored. I had an especially good group this year, debating topics from Syria intervention to immigration reform. I wondered more than once during the day if it were possible that this would be the last...
Good morning, everyone. I only caught the end last evening of the Washoe County Commission’s failure to pass the schools tax. There was emotion on both sides, but I felt only one: disgust. I feel sympathy for the Washoe County commissioners placed in this untenable position by the governor and Legislature. But the “let’s put this on the ballot” drivel as cover for doing nothing mirrors the same kind of misunderstanding of the kind of government the Founders envisioned as well-known...
Good morning, everyone. Tonight is the night, dear Flashees. Thanks to the cowardice of the Gang of 63 and the no-new-taxes-with-asterisks pledge from Gov. Brian Sandoval, Washoe County commissioners have been placed in the ridiculous position of having to pass a schools tax. It is likely to fail, and I blame a failed system. Everyone involved: Sandoval, lawmakers with triple-digit IQs, the commissioners, most Washoe residents know the schools need help. But because the Carson City 64 abdicated...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: Rep. Dina Titus. DAYS UNTIL FILING FOR OFFICE OPENS IN 2014: 112 DAYS UNTIL PRIMARY ELECTION DAY 2014: 211 DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 358 Good morning, everyone. Happy Veterans Day. Those of us who have never served can’t imagine the sacrifice by those who have and their families. Makes me want to watch a great movie about vets, perhaps “Coming Home” or “Born on the Fourth of July.” Thanks to all...
Assembly Minority Leader Pat Hickey went after those trying to divide his party in a compelling speech Monday at the Washoe GOP dinner calling for an end to the "circular firing squad." Ironically, the speech came on a night when Gov. Brian Sandoval, who tried to oust state Republican Party Chairman Michael McDonald, boycotted the event because of Washoe Chairman Tom Taber's Caveman Radio hosting stint. If the Democrats are lucky, no one will listen to Hickey, who made a lot of sense. Here are...
Ross Miller is now 1-1 in getting third parties to disclose more about where their money is coming from in campaigns. After losing a case involving Americans for Prosperity, the secretary of state has won a District Court judgement against The Alliance for America's Future. The group ran ads to help Gov. Brian Sandoval in his 2010 race, but did not register as a PAC, thus keeping its donors secret. Miller protested and a court has agreed (judgment attached here). The outfit has to pay a $110,...
