are just anti-Hispanic has now been proved a lie. Indeed, the #1
target for deportation in the United States today isn’t Mexican, but
Canadian: Justin Bieber!
That said, anyone wanting to contact their congressman to voice their
opinion on the new Ryan Amnesty Act of 2014 can call the U.S. Capitol
switchboard at (202) 224-3121. Actually, you can use this number to
call Congress on any issue, not just immigration.
This year’s Republican response to the State of the Union Address was,
once again, HORRIBLE.
And don’t give me this crud about how tough it is for anyone to follow
POTUS after his SOTU. The GOP needs to stop delivering boring,
uninspiring, cookie-cutter, inside-the-beltway speeches prepared by
“professional” speechwriters and instead try talking like, you know,
Democrats in Nevada have had a field day with the announcement that
former liberal lieutenant governor Sue Wagner left the Republican
Party because, she says, it’s shifted too far to the right.
Two things: First, Sue Wagner hasn’t been an active Nevada Republican
for over 20 years. Secondly, Wagner is so liberal she makes Gov. Brian
Sandoval (R&R-Partners) look like a Bircher.
Her departure from the GOP is neither meaningful nor a big loss.
While bending over backwards to raise a bundle of cash for R&R
Partners’ hand-picked lieutenant governor candidate, “Moderate Mark”
Hutchison, word on the street is that Gov. Brian Sandoval (R&R
Partners) has barely lifted a finger for GOP attorney general
candidate Adam Laxalt, who is running against R&R Partners’ anointed
candidate in that race, Democrat Secretary of State Ross Miller.
Democrat congressional candidate Erin Bilbray’s
highly-regarded campaign manager, Bradley Mayer, and replaced him with
a liberal abortion rights activist with no experience as a campaign
manager and whose main claim to fame is working on a past Nancy Pelosi
I still think the Democrats’ problem isn’t the wrong campaign manager
in this race, but the wrong candidate.
Conservative Assemblyman Ira Hansen (R-Washoe) says government
bureaucrats from the Nevada Department of Wildlife have a vendetta
against him which is behind its “filing of four misdemeanor counts of
unlawfully setting traps.” And when you look at the actual law, it’s
hard to argue his point.
It’s also another reminder: The more money you give government, the
more harassment of this sort the government is able to rain upon us
Since the Legislature has refused to act, conservative activist
Sharron Angle has filed a ballot initiative that, if approved, would
require everyone to show a photo ID before voting, just like the photo
ID you have to show before boarding a plane or cashing a check. Makes
sense. Just do it.
