I can see that I am not wrong in my opinion of such corrupt elected official as it is Bob Coffin

My Point of View/By Rolando Larraz
This is the last week of the current month or the first week of the new month but because I am in the middle of both, I am going to use it as my potpourri week and write about a few things.
First, I want to send my respect to the Woolfson family, Steve, Jackie and the kids (no longer kids) for the loss of their family pet Sunday. I don’t have to imagine how they all feel because I just lost my two dogs in one month.
I lost my 14-year-old Lady on March 24 and exactly one month later, on April 24, I lost my twelve-year-old Charlie and it’s been a devastating and painful month that only those who have house pets can relate to; my heart goes out to the Woolfson family.

After the painful experience of losing Lady and Charlie I find the news of City Council Bob Coffin calling for the president’s death a relief, mentally and emotionally, because I can see that I am not wrong in my opinion of such corrupt elected officials and I feel that it will give me maximum satisfaction when he is out of the city council seat that he now holds.
A person who wishes ill sentiments to the duly elected president of the United States is a very despicable person, but when that person is also an elected official, the picture is different and higher law enforcement offices should investigate him.
It’s funny that when I called the offices of Senator Marco Rubio and questioned why it was so difficult for anyone to reach any of the Senator’s offices in Florida and how it was that not only as an elected Senator but as a candidate for the presidency of the United States he was so unreachable, he sent the FBI to my office to investigate me.
All I wanted was to invite him to be on my radio show. I did not wish him any ill will of any kind, and I did not want him dead, but the FBI showed up at both my home and office, on my doorsteps to inquire about my call to his office.
Why is not the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) investigating Bob Coffin? Why is not the United States Secret Service investigating the threats made by Bob Coffin wishing Donald J. Trump, the duly elected President of the United States of America, death?
I feel that Bob Coffin, Lois Tarkanian, and Steve Seroka have discriminated against me and this newspaper for doing our job by
telling the truth and calling them useless public officials, but that is all people get from Democrat politicians that are used to doing things as they want and not as they are supposed to be done.

A good example of my point is that the newspaper that belongs to so many people that one does not know who owns the publication after so
many “donations” that they don’t know who is right or who is wrong.
I was wondering when the attack against Michael McDonald was going to start and where it would be coming from. Most people who have donated
thousands and thousands of dollars to the Nevada (In)dependents are Democrats and they are getting ready to start attacking all the Republicans they can find.
In the April 28, 2019 issue of the Nevada (In)dependent, Riley Snider questions the qualifications of Nevada Republican Party Chairman, Michael McDonald, to be a lobbyist and legislative liaison for the Nevada State Board of Dental Examiners.
I have no idea who this Riley Snider is or how long he has lived in Nevada or what qualifications he may have to be a writer (note I did not say a reporter), but he should know that in Nevada the only thing you need to be a lobbyist is to have political connections, be known in political circles, and have friends in the right places—and all that is what Michael McDonald has plenty of.
I have not spoken to or seen Michael McDonald in three years. I am not in Michael McDonald’s circle of friends, but I do respect Michael McDonald and I believe he is the best City Council Ward One ever had, and the day Michael McDonald runs for Mayor of Las Vegas I will support him all the way.
I have been in the newspaper business in Nevada since 1962 (57 years) always in my own place, have never been fired from any television station, have never been fired from any radio station because I own my own radio station; and because I don’t have shareholders and I am not in the gaming business, my board cannot fire me from my own newspaper.
I had the very first Spanish newspaper and I had the very first Mesquite, Nevada newspaper. I published the North Las Vegas News all with my own money; I do not owe any favors to anyone and because I don’t accept “donations” from anyone, no one can tell me who I can write about or not, and because I always write the truth, I have never been sued.
Because I am Cuban I hate communism; I hate everything that resembles communism and that is why I can never be a Democrat, I am who I am, and all I want is to do what is right for the people of Nevada.
