Unarmed young people being killed by what some see feel are assassins in uniform; good, honest, dedicated police officers getting ambushed and killed for the behavior of some of their heartless counterparts, and bad police officers getting commendations and promotions. So unfair!
Bad judges get reelected while good judges are taken down because they are not controllable, bought by unethical useless attorneys with a few dollars to spread around to be able to control the judges they just bought and paid for during the election.
Elected officials believe in their self-serving mistaken dreams that they are Kings and Queens, reigning above all those who helped them to win their “royal” office, while the “lowly” voters suffer for their poor choice of candidates for the next four years.
Elected officials seem to be under the impression that those very people that elected them are brainless and they can just change their mind, opinion or actions whenever it suits them and the electoral will never find out — which shows a great deal of disrespect for the people they are supposed to be serving.
People become indifferent to all the mistakes those elected officials make when they are recognized by such “an important public figure” who says hello to everyone in the place, obviously hoping for that extra new vote in the next election and not because he/she is part of the community and looking for ways to help those who believe in them.
It is time to take our future, our life and our community seriously, and to make time for paying attention to the life and well-being of our children.
Police officers should start trusting the community they swear to serve and protect so they can get the trust and respect that the majority of them deserve.
The community needs to give an opportunity to police officers to act human, and respect those officers that put their life on the line to protect and serve them on a daily basis.
Perhaps this year will be the year for us not to be hypocrites but to start respecting each other and respecting all our human, civil and constitutional rights, working hard to make this nation the example we believe it once was — an example that everyone would like to think it is, but is not — and an example of which we can genuinely be proud, as people around the world look at us to see if it is true.
This new year is the year that we should work harder than ever to keep our new year’s resolutions all year ‘round. We are not talking about those “smaller” resolutions, such as going to the gym more often, eating better or getting more sleep, or any other of those other resolutions that we know we won’t keep even before we start. We are talking about our quality of life at the hands of our politicians and leaders.
In this new year, we need to get more involved, more educated, and really learn about those who we have chosen to represent us; and above all, we must not allow those we elect to treat us like mentally-challenged voters who can easily be led astray.
What the people in Clark County, and even all of Nevada, need to do as this year gets under way is to think about the community and not just ourselves. It is time that the people we’re elected to represent us, the community, in all their different positions, be reminded that they are not the ones in charge. WE THE PEOPLE are in charge, and they should keep that in mind. If we know someone is being fooled, let’s step up to that person and speak up!
Look at all the drama created by a few Republicans that are under the impression that they are manipulating all the others when they are the ones being manipulated by the Governor himself.
Governor Brian Sandoval has a plan to raise taxes — something that he assured us he was not going to do — but by having a person like Michelle Fiore as Chairman of the taxation committee and as a Majority Leader, she can stop the governor’s plan to raise taxes.
So what should be done? Have the current Assemblywoman removed as chairman and as the majority leader, discrediting her along in the way.
It has nothing to do with my genetics or owing money to the government; almost everyone in the nation has had problems, disagreements or confusion over their taxes.
Who would be better to deal with taxes than those who have lived, dealt with and experienced tax problems? Only those who have faced that dilemma and are still able to sit down and reason with their accusers and keep their business open, employing people that otherwise would be joining the long list of unemployment collectors.
Let’s keep our New Year’s resolution this time. Happy New Year!!!
