A legislator allegedly threatens to kill another politician and gets compensated for the threat by getting a paid vacation at taxpayer expense. Now he’s on the loose again. To do what? Go after somebody else?
The brilliant politicians in Carson City and Washington wonder why we have so many nutcases running loose and shooting people. Let me help: It’s the revolving doors in our prison system. You don’t let screw-loose people out on the streets when they threaten to kill someone. It’s time we replaced the Nevada Senate and Assembly and the do-nothing U.S. Congress with a “direct democracy” where the people make all the laws and decisions by voting on the issues.
Finally, could you please direct me to the nearest state office where I can apply for a “free” administrative leave paid for with my own taxes even though I haven’t threatened to kill someone?
