Election Day Roundup

A potpourri of items for you on this fine election day:
  • If you happen to be voting in Laughlin, you may actually recognize one of the names running for constable as our frequent, fashion-conscious commenter.

  • ATL posted a story last week about Nevada attorney Jonathan Goldsmith's lawsuit over "mean Facebook Comments." Are we really into the upper 11,000's with bar numbers already?

  • CPK has posted the pics from its recent annual party.

  • U.S. District Court Judge Roger Hunt granted a TRO and ordered Joanna Kishner's censure to be rescinded. We imagine it may be difficult to un-ring that bell. (PDF of Order)

  • Meanwhile, judicial candidate Ron Israel was censured for exposing his political party on a campaign flyer. (LV Sun)
(Thanks, Tipsters!)

November 2, 2010 8:53 AM - The Republican party will be fielding a Pollwatching Task Force of over 200 pollwatchers today. They will be backed up by a legal strike team functioning something like a flying squad to descend on problem precincts. We've also been told that the 8th Judicial District will have a judge on duty for the entire duration of the day to hear emergency writs. Historically we have found about 80% of the problems occur in 20% of the precincts - that's where we'll be concentrating our efforts.

For sure, the Republican elites found the Tea Party invaluable on the way to this Election Day. And not merely, as Huckabee has it, because they wanted its foot soldiers. What made the Tea Party most useful was that its loud populist message gave the G.O.P. just the cover it needed both to camouflage its corporate patrons and to rebrand itself as a party miraculously antithetical to the despised G.O.P. that gave us George W. Bush and record deficits only yesterday.

Sharron Angle will (and has repeatedly) voted for lower taxes, smaller government and privatization of many government programs (again, smaller govt.). She IS interested in fixing what has been broken by Obama and W. Bush before him.

The tea party, and its supporters are not a shill for the GOP, but are representative of the more conservative elements in our country.

Pony up, 1123, with your vite that is. If you dont think that Angle is interested (at least more interested than Reid) in fixing the problems you cite, you are uninformed, by choice.

@11:39, I’m so tired of hearing the regurgitated Reaganomics lesson from Angle and individuals like you. Republicans are good at cuttings taxes but bad at cutting spending. The “pledge to America” that was released recently doesn’t give one realistic proposal for cutting spending (more than a mere pittance in relation to total spending). Carly Fiarona (FL) wants to “rein in out-of-control government spending.” After being asked 7 times for a single spending cut proposal, she couldn’t even offer an idea. Reagan quadrupled the national debt. Bush Jr. added trillions more.
ARE THESE THE MEMBERS OF YOUR “FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE” PARTY? If that’s what you’re selling, I’m not interested. Where did that money go? Why can’t I buy toys, clothes, tools, electronics, or even FORD cars that are made in this country? Businesses seek PROFIT. Good for them. But that’s not always good for me. Light duty trucks are still built in this country because of taxes on imports (i.e. regulation). Just go on filling your house with Chinese-made garbage sold by welfare-dependant-employer Walmart and talk about how great deregulation has been for America. I prefer to make businesses pay their fair share for the amazing infrastructure we have made available to them so they can operate their businesses and move their goods and hire literate workers. Google pays 2.8% in taxes. I’m sure it’s millions of dollars, but should they be paying less? Does government need to get out of Google’s way so they can continue to enrich the Irish economy with sheltered money? Meanwhile, the middle class evaporates and uses debt to bridge shrinking wages.
I’m sure you’ll have all sorts of witty remarks about the “spendocrats” and the “nanny-state.”

Yes. I never said that I was Republican. While I am registered Rep. I lean Libertarian (I am "Libertarian Asshole" from a few weeks ago).

Less taxes = More jobs
Its proven.

But on a point of camraderie, you are correct in that the Republican establishment is nearly as progressive as the Democrats and has no right to brand themselves as "fiscally responsible". Thus, the reason for the success of the Tea Party Movement.

While Angle is a Republican, she has a history of voting for tax cuts and smaller government.

Cut the spending, lower taxes and get the hell out of my life. If you think that raising taxes on business is smart, then you are a fool and deserve what you get.

In any event, the Conservatives are taking over tonight !!!

Angle's campiagn was based on "the economy failed while Harry was in office." That is the best that she could do, but it is working because peopel are just plain stupid.

We also need to forget that we are in a huge mess that had completely exploded by the end of 2007. But peopel have short memories so blame the current administration, hey people are dumb, have short memories and will believe anything that is on the TV, so the new truth becomes "we are in this mess because of runaway spending."

Big shock that Kickstands guy is for Angle...

Humm, while Angle is certainly less than my ideal candidate (and this is after working along side her at the Legislature a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away), she frightens me far less than the alternative.

And, what has been slightly more disturbing is the fact that I've come to realize that she actually represents more of what I believe than I ever imagined (though I would certainly endorse a less fruity presentation).

I believe in eliminating the US Dept. of Ed - I strongly believe STATES should govern the when and how for educating their populace rather than having to resort to subversive tactics to assure minimal federal funding (which originally was our own $$$).

I believe in eliminating and privatizing social security - call me selfish, but given the current system I stand a 0% chance of seeing any of the money I've paid into the system, so why not at least give me a chance to better my position with that money. Way I see it, I don't have much to loose (thought the 70 year old folks I'm currently funding have the real risk of loss).

I believe in less government and localized government. I'd frankly be just fine paying the same amount in taxes as I do today if 90% of that money stayed in my state and local governments and only 10% was shipped off to the feds. I damn well know I'd witness a restoration of a competent educational system, growth of economy, etc.

Instead, our "most powerful" Senator has done nothing other than assure that we as Nevada taxpayers are subsidizing programs and benefits in other states (Hello, New Mexico, et al.). I'm tired of the rhetoric of "all the good he's done."

I'm perfectly willing to endure six years of crazy over six more years of Harry.

Hey Anonymous Right Wing Nut Jobs riddle me this: Does cutting taxes increase the deficit?

If you say it does, how can you criticize Obama and the Democrats for increasing taxes when it reduces the deficit you are so stridently arguing needs to be slashed?

If you say it does not, why does the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office disagree with you... http://www.cbo.gov/ftpdocs/69xx/doc6908/12-01-10PercentTaxCut.pdf
(finding that revenue losses caused by tax cuts minimally offset by stimulus gains in the economy)

Bonus question: You say you want smaller government? Presently, the federal government spends its money on:

Defense and security: 20 percent

Social Security: Another 20 percent of the budget,

Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP:
21 percent of the budget in 2010,

2% for scientific and medical research
3% for roads
3% for education
1% for international aid
4% for misc.
7% for veteran and government worker benefits

Safety net programs: About 14 percent to individuals and families facing hardship.

Interest on the national debt:
6 percent of the budget

What ya gonna cut? Somehow I have I missed the Teabaggers detailed discussion of where they plan to cut all this ‘outrageous’ government spending to make all these deficit reductions.

Not at all. As we stated, me particularly, Angle was not my first choice. She was however, a damn sight better than another 6 years of Reid. While we desparately wanted her to win, I dont think any reasonable politico or other educated and informed voter would have laid money on Reid's loss. We wanted it, but didnt bank on it.



"seems like you think a few seats swinging in the House actually means anything.

A FEW SEATS. Look it up. When was the last time that that 60+ seats swung. Here is a stat or 2:

House
60 seats landed, 11 still in play, 5 of those leaning, you guessed it,republican.

Senate
Pick up of 6 Seats, average is 2. # races still in play. Alaska, write in winner will caucus with Repubs.

Governorships
This ones fun, especially with Redisticting coming up. 37 total races. So far, 23 for Repubs. 6 for Dems. 4 of 7 Dem Incumbent wins, 6 of 6 Republican incumbent wins. 3 races still in play, 1 leaning Republican.

State Legislatures
Control of 19 chambers confirmed with HUNDREDS of seats changing parties. Projected to be 23 chambers when the dust settles (there were 20 in 1994). Again, historic considering Redistricting that is coming up.


Reid hating is both worthless and bad for Nevada.

How, pray tell? This is both conclusory and false.

Glad all those Clark Co. Union voters stuffed to the ballot box.

You're a joke. Can't win it fairly, then steal it. Talk about integrity. You my friend, are a fool. You can have Reid. He is irrelevant. He hasnt been for Nevada for years. he doesnt live here, he does not legislate for us and cares only for his own power, which is substantially reduced now that the House, the Governorships and Redistricting are lost.

This was HUGE for the Republicans and the Tea Party in particular.

Voters ban judges from using international law

Associated Press

Published: November 2, 2010

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma voters have approved a measure that would forbid judges from considering international law or Islamic law when deciding cases.


Republican Rex Duncan, the sponsor of the measure, called it a "pre-emptive strike" designed to close the door on activist judges "legislating from the bench or using international law or Sharia law."

Members of the Muslim community called the question an attack on Islam and some of them said they are prepared to file a lawsuit challenging the measure.

November 3, 2010. The beginning of the end of the Tea Party and the far right wing nuts. Palin has just become a non-factor in politics. Let's see where the TPs and far right end up in 2012.

Far more important: what happened with Al Marquis and his hunt for the Booger?

Jordan -- a few years ago I was assigned to the Outlaying Team at the DA's Office which included Laughlin. I went down to Laughlin to serve some subpoenas on two wits and a victim for a District Court trial.

A few days later the Laughlin constable called and told me it was illegal for me to serve subpoenas there as he was the Constable and was the only one who was allowed to serve subpoenas. He then added that I was taking food off his babies table.

Then he told me that he would set up a monthly account for the County and then I could pass the subs to him and he would serve them at $35 a pop.

He last words (as I was laughing) was that this should be the last of my doing things in Laughlin or he would be forced to take official notice and do something about it.
