Private citizen, public official or jack-booted thug? You make the call. We are doomed as a free nation. Apparently, the government, whether county, state or federal has jurisdiction over what comes out of our mouths or goes in. I think it would be a nice gesture by the County Commission to see that Mary Oaks and Susan Labay are relieved of their publicly-funded posts, allowing them additional time during the work week to reflect on the meaning of good judgment.

If the House is serious about fixing health care in this country (and it does need to be fixed) their first action should be to pass legislation binding Congress to the same "programs" the rest of us endure. Here's what we help pay for them:

I do think the healthcare bill in its present form needs to go. It is a tax bill in disguise and has already caused more U.S. job loss. New 1099 requirements are going to choke the life out of small businesses all over the country.

The bill could and should have been handled as a one-pager.

As far as congress limiting its hours; I'm all for it. Less time to pass idiotic legislation and spend our money like drunken sailors (my apologies to sailors everywhere). Both parties seem to be completely out of touch with their constituents.

I usually find us making these various lists pretty amusing. I am curious though about the "educational" criteria used. Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Dean Kamon, Steve Jobs, Larry Ellison, Michael Dell, and Mark Zuckerberg among others have all somehow muddled through without a degree other than honorary. This list apparently indicates that names you may know like Kirk Kerkorian or Sheldon Adelson are bringing down our "average".

I watched the Inquest all day yesterday online. Sadly there is conflicting testimony between the officer and the Costco employee about how Mr Scott was holding the weapon. Shai Lierley stated Scott was holding the butt of the gun which apparently never left its' holster. Yep, I know a holstered gun can be fired and there are specific actions taught as part of the training for a CCW when law enforcement is involved. I would like to know where and when Mr Scott took his training as some courses are way more thorough than others. However, the 911 recording shows a very rapid-fire succession of what I took to be conflicting commands and shots fired-not giving the deceased any time to carry them out. I've lived here way too long to have respect for the process. I expect the result to be that Mr Scott died from lead poisoning...

Who is going to make the taxpayers whole? Clark County, Las Vegas and all other Municipalities here partied like drunken sailers (I mean no insult to sailers) on OUR money when times were "good". Bell, California here we come.
