Quote of the Moment

“If the Democratic Party wasn’t so liberal and out of touch with average Americans, the GOP would already be reduced to cinders.  The only thing that keeps the GOP afloat is the absurd liberalism of Democrats in Washington, D.C.  The question is, how long will the American people put up with the bumbling, stumbling, GOP?  I personally believe the GOP will continue to self-destruct.”

Dang Democrats

So, the Democrats (well, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid) said a few weeks ago that they wanted the generals on the ground to make the decisions in regards to troops in Iraq.  If the generals think we need more troops, they told us, they’d support them. President Bush is expected to outline his new strategy for winning in the war in Iraq on Wednesday.  It is assumed that he will send more troops in to secure the capital.  Pelosi & Reid are saying that they won’t support that.  President Bush hasn’t made his announcement yet and the two Democrat leaders are already fighting with him about it… after they said they’d support it if that’s what the generals are supporting!!!!

Question 5 is allowed to come into effect…. kinda

I’ve made my feelings on the Nevada Clean Indoor Air Act very well known here on this blog. See, for example, my blogs on 9 Nov 06 and 29 Sept 06.

When Judge Douglas Herndon decided to not allow it to come onto the books for a few weeks, I was very upset. See my blog on 8 Dec 06. Judge Herndon has decided to allow the law to take effect now…well, kinda. The Judge really took the teeth out of the law by not allowing criminal prosecution of people who break the law. Also, the Judge is going to listen to arguments in January to see if it is constitutional or not. If he decides its not, then he’ll through the law out then.

The State Legislator is not allowed to change any laws that the people pass by ballot questions for a few years. Perhaps we should not allow the courts to touch them for a few years also.

Yet Another Judge I will never Vote for!

Judge Douglas Herndon voted yesterday for a two week temporary restraining order on the Nevada Clean Indoor Air Act. They will meet to discuss if the act is “constitutional” or not. You’d like to think if two courts (including the Nevada Supreme Court) already looked over it and allowed it be on the ballot that it would be constitutional. But no. Those who lost and supported question 4 feel that the 53.92% of Nevadan who voted to pass this bill weren’t smart enough to know what they were doing! So this liberal Judge decides that he needs to legislate from the bench. If Judge Herndon decides that HE needs to prohibit this act from going in effect, then I think that we Nevadans need to hold a recall election on him.

Smell that air? It's smoke free! (coming soon, at least)

We’re are so happy that question 5, the “Nevada Clean Indoor Air Act” passed. We will be able to go out and get food, gas, etc, and not have to smell smoke! There is a gas station just down the street from us that the employees are always smoking in. No more! Yeah. We had actually stopped going there months ago because of it, even though they normally have good prices and is on the way home.

2006 Mid-Term Elections

So, not all the precincts have reported yet, but it looks like some of the people I voted for won, and some didn’t. The big ones in Nevada that I wanted to win looks like they will win, including Jim Gibbons, John Ensign, John Porter, and Dean Heller. Jerry Airola didn’t win (it wasn’t even close!). Also, question 5 looks like it will pass, which will outlaw smoking in most public places!!

I was wrong when I said I didn’t think the Democrats will take the House.

Election Day 2006

The midterm Elections are being held tomorrow. The Wife & I already voted. I know everyone keeps saying that the Democrats will take control of the House, maybe the Senate. I just don’t think they will. I think the Republicans will hold the house by the skin of their teeth… but I do think they’ll hold it.

I guess we’ll find out, hopefully tomorrow, but if not, by Wednesday.
