America’s might takes money
April 24, 2014
The column “If Walgreen Co. moves home base to Europe, blame D.C.’s tax failure,” in Monday’s Sun, leaves me with some questions.
Bundy is a victim of government
April 24, 2014
The editorial “Bundy is no victor” stated, “He could have staged an act of civil disobedience to garner help.”
Don’t horse around with carriage idea
April 23, 2014
How quaint! A horse-drawn carriage ride on Las Vegas streets? How incredibly stupid for so many valid reasons.
Talking tough with big stick in hand
April 23, 2014
I was impressed by all the big, brave macho men with all their weapons coming to defend a moocher who feeds his herd on public land and does not want to pay for it. A handout, like some Tea Party folks call welfare.
Truths behind the Bundy situation
April 23, 2014
Perhaps I don’t see the situation between Cliven Bundy, his armed militia supporters and the Bureau of Land Management as clearly as others —but some truths poke through, i.e., Bundy has not paid taxes imposed on his use of public land for private grazing rights, and Bundy and the militia men and women apparently feel that they are above the law.
The lies that pop up in the desert
April 22, 2014
If you ever wondered what those poor souls who were in the East German Stazi were doing in their idle time, look no further than Mesquite.
Using Bundy as a distraction
April 22, 2014
Regarding the Nevada rancher and his long court battle against the Bureau of Land Management:
Use juries to teach feds a lesson
April 21, 2014
The most effective way for “We the People” to neuter the federal government in its fight with Nevada’s Cliven Bundy is to hang every federal jury in cases against Bundy.
Bundy family isn’t paying its share
April 21, 2014
The situation involving Cliven Bundy is an example of government fees that went unpaid for 20 years while Bundy ignored requests for payment for the illegal use of federal land for grazing.
Self-serving officials must go
April 21, 2014
I am almost 95 years old, and what I see happening in this county is the federal government saying, “Do it our way or we will use force to get our way.”
Higher wage gets folks off federal aid
April 21, 2014
I’m writing to encourage Congress to vote to increase the minimum wage to $10.30 an hour.
Feds are trying to ruin rancher
April 20, 2014
God bless Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval and Sen. Dean Heller for questioning the zeal with which the Bureau of Land Management is trying to put rancher Cliven Bundy and his family into the poorhouse.
Wrong to weaken Clinton forest plan
April 20, 2014
It was nearly 20 years ago that President Bill Clinton’s Northwest Forest Plan went into effect. Government agency reviews show the plan has been effective at protecting drinking water supplies for millions of Americans, improving water quality, and restoring forests that were affected by decades of unsustainable old-growth logging.
Our young people and a TV blunder
April 19, 2014
One would hope the college student who pronounced “Achilles” as “A-chill-is” on a recent college edition of “Wheel of Fortune” is not representative of today’s college students.
Minimum wage not high enough
April 19, 2014
I believe that minimum wage should be increased in order for people to be able to simply live. I work in the service industry, and I must depend on tips to get by. Working 40 hours a week is still not cutting it.
