A few people have asked me about the person who interrupted my radio broadcasting last week and if I have done anything about the written threat he emailed to me, with a copy sent to lots of people in this organization; they want to know what I am planning to do about all those threats.
Well, let me tell you all about how I take threats; I pull my zipper down and show the one who is threatening me — and his entire family — just who has the man parts to do something about those threats.
(Metaphorically speaking, of course.)
Also I do not need guns such as Michelle Fiore likes to carry around, to protect myself; I am a peaceful man who doesn’t believe in traditional criminal behavior.
Last week I acknowledged, on the air while broadcasting my daily show, that Assemblywoman Michelle Fiore has autographed a magazine for me with her picture on the front page, that read, “Rolando, what the heck are you doing?”
Thank goodness I am a very peaceful man; when others reach for their guns I reach for my computer and start writing — and that may not be to flatter anyone in the situation.
I used to be a very good pool shooter and I enjoyed it when I could call the shot ahead and successfully hit one ball to hit another (in Spanish it’s called carambola, where the ball ends up in the “basket” and I win the game.)
In real life, when you want to hurt someone you may hit someone that is close to your target, and that is why I am so happy that I am not a violent man; and I am even happier that I no longer have anyone that I care for who can be a target for any coward that wants to hurt me.
Nothing is worse for politicians than being connected to some one who has a felony record, has warrants out for their arrest, and has charges for felonies that are in open court cases.
The voters don’t see those kinds of situations, and that is one thing that the candidates have to learn about those people who have a chip on their shoulder and hang around and use candidates who otherwise could be very decent people with good intentions to serve the community.
I believe that right now it is stupid to use this valuable space on petty things that have nothing to do with the rest of the community and the best for the future of the community we live in.
I am going to try to ignore any of those comments and ridiculous statements about me and try to use this space for what I have been using it for the last 18 years, which is writing about the political issues that affect this community, giving my readers the other side of the story so they can compare one with the other one and come to their own conclusion.
It is important that our Las Vegas Tribune readers and my own readers of this column and my radio audience know what is in the best interest of our community.
This is not the year to be selfish and think about ourselves before we think about our future and our families and the nation’s safety.
I need this space to tell my readers to forget about party loyalty and to open their eyes, making them realize that the Party is not loyal to anyone else but themselves.
Why do you think that there are those in either party that prefer to vote for anyone else and are willing to betray you and the party and the country just to make sure that Donald Trump does not get the nomination to the presidency?
Donald Trump is financing his own campaign and when he wins he will not be obligated to anyone but the country itself.
Donald Trump is the only candidate that can change this country; he can make America great again, and Donald Trump will make it be possible because he is the only hope the American people have at this point.
It is my humble opinion that the Republican Party is known for betraying its members and double-crossing its candidates and all because the so-called leaders of the party want to maintain control of the party, and when they see anyone that cannot and will not play their game, they right away start working on dismissing that individual and whatever popularity he/she may have.
Donald Trump is the only hope we have and we should not allow anyone to destroy that opportunity for the future of this great nation.
My name is Rolando Larraz, and as always, I approved this column.
