My Point of View/By Rolando Larraz
I used to like County Commissioner Steve Sisolak and even one time on my radio show I stated to another governor candidate at that time if
Steve Sisolak doesn’t run for governor, I would support his candidacy.
All that was, of course, before Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt threw his hat in the race and also before the now governor Steve Sisolak had turned communist and abusive dictator, ignoring not only the wishes, but the needs of the people of this wonderful state.
As a good communist, Governor Steve Sisolak fighting for open borders and welcoming illegal immigrants to take over the benefits and the streets of our state should know some other words in a foreign language including Spanish.
And I said including Spanish because the Spanish, Mexicans in particular, ARE NOT the only ones that try to come into this country illegally, even if they always take the illegal issue very personally; but that is an issue for another column.
For now I don’t want to get off my train of thought about what I want to tell the communist governor of my state, yes my state because even
if I speak with an accent I have been in Nevada much longer than the governor has in years of age.
Governor Sisolak is telling the Nevadans that he has the “huevos” to steal the money that belongs to the citizens and get away with it. Nevadans have been waiting for the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance also known as PUA money that was offered by the federal government, NOT THE STATE OF NEVADA, to help small businesses, independent contractors and workers, as is the case of drivers with Uber and Lyft.
Since the month of March Nevadans are waiting for the money that they have coming not to go party because partying in Las Vegas is against the governor’s wishes and rules, and is almost illegal; and not to go shopping because they have not paid their mortgage or rent in six
months and most people have the common sense to take care of their primary obligations before anything else.
Phone calls to the DERT call center are an insult to the intelligence of any human being because they never answer the telephone lines and the “funeral music” the callers are forced to listen to is some kind of mental torture similar to concentration camps, forcing many to hang up.
Either that or the governor has to show Nevadans that he has the “huevos” to hold that money to intentionally hurt the economy to make President Trump responsible for Nevadans losing their homes and joining the large population of homeless in Clark County.
It is well known and obvious that Governor Sisolak has antagonistic feelings toward the duly elected president of this nation; he has punished people that express solidarity with the president, he has punished counties that have allowed the president to speak to their citizens and has openly forced local authorities to punish those who facilitate the venues to the president like the Ahern Hotel and his facility in the city of Henderson.
In my humble opinion the position that our Nevada governor has taken in forcing his political beliefs on the people of Nevada will be a factor for him to be a one-term governor.
And it is not only the governor’s fault; those who he has brought up to enforce his dictatorial decisions are as guilty as he is even if they owe him some kind of loyalty.
Elisa Cafferata is one of those puppets that is abusing the people of Nevada just to please (obey) her boss, disregarding the problems the money-holding is causing the people who up to now have been proud residents of this beautiful state.
With her position by the governor and with the governor, Elisa Cafferata has put the name of her family to shame. I have never met the woman but I have the distinguished honor of knowing her grandmother, the first woman to serve in the U.S. Congress for Nevada, opening the doors for other women in Nevada politics, including Democratic females.
I was told that it was Elisa Cafferata’s idea or suggestion to the governor to use that funeral music on the telephone waiting mode at the DETR call center “so they’ll get tired of listening to the music and hang up the telephone line,” as it was unofficially confirmed to me by an insider and has been proven trustworthy.
Several people that I know have admitted to hanging up the telephone after getting tired of hearing that “ugly and stupid” music and some have finally gotten through after eight hours of holding the line to speak to someone without any results.
Governor Sisolak should be ashamed of his actions and should not pretend to be a man of faith while playing with the lives of the people of Nevada because only going to church is not going to make him a good or virtuous man.
Perhaps the city of Las Vegas should get prepared to set portable bathrooms all over the city to maintain the hygiene and décor of our city after all those people are losing their living places and becoming homeless in the best city of them all.
My name is Rolando Larraz, and as always, I approved this column.
