Victoria’s Secret: How Assemblywoman went over to the dark side

On October 9, 2015, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

I really hate it when self-professed “staunch” conservatives go wobbly on the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, especially since it’s not just a “piece of paper.”  It’s a pretty reliable political weather vane. The latest casualty is Assemblywoman Victoria Seaman, who has announced she won’t sign the Pledge for her state senate run next year. The power of […]

The Problem isn’t the GOP “Brand,” it’s the Ratheads

On October 9, 2015, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

Nick Phillips is running against Nevada Republican Party Chairman Michael McDonald in the leadership election scheduled for November. And while I’ve been a longtime ally of McDonald’s – dating back to when he was first elected to the Las Vegas City Council while I was Clark County GOP chairman – I have nothing against Phillips. However, […]

On October 6, 2015, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

STORIES OF TAX REPEAL DEATH GREATLY EXAGGERATED You may have heard that a judge in Carson City on October 1 killed the tax repeal referendum that we filed in early August and that I didn’t “show up” for the hearing.  Here’s one such story by Geoff Dornan of the Nevada Appeal… CLICK HERE To the […]

Patent Trolls vs. Modern Day Billy Goats Gruff

On October 5, 2015, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

Most people have never heard of a patent troll. I hadn’t until a year or so ago. They involve patents, which most of us know little or nothing about. But the “troll” part is easily understood. Remember the kids’ story of “Three Billy Goats Gruff”? The goats wanted to cross a bridge. But a troll […]

How can Nevada screw up Marijuana Legalization; Let me count the ways

On October 1, 2015, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

How can a state that has so successfully handled legal gambling, legal 24/7 consumption of alcohol and legal prostitution have so fouled up legalizing marijuana? The problems with legalizing medical marijuana alone in Nevada are legion.  It was approved by voters over a dozen years ago, but to this day I believe we only have […]

From Personal Experience: A Good Guy without a Gun is Pretty Much Useless!

On September 28, 2015, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

I’ve never been a big gun guy.  But I’ve always been a big gun RIGHTS guy. And after yesterday’s experience, I’m now gonna be an even bigger one of both. Many of you probably already know part of the story from reading my Twitter posts during the incident, or reading the Channel 3 (“Man breaks up […]


Bye-Bye Boehner!

On September 26, 2015, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

While my focus in Nevada is on replacing RINOs with conservatives in the state Legislature – especially in the Assembly – the fact is such a war for the philosophical soul of the GOP is being waged in every state, as well as Congress. In Nevada, conservatives have already chalked up four major victories in […]

GOP Primaries needed to get rid of Bad Eggs & Bad Blood

On September 24, 2015, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

It’s not just Nevada that has a gaggle of very bad Republicans in its Legislature.  Missouri just witnessed a sellout of philosophical principle that ranks right up there with the 2015 GOP-controlled Nevada Legislature. On the other hand, California Republicans, surprisingly enough, are the ones setting the good example of what happens when you focus […]

India’s Sugar Export Policy is “Almost Criminal”

On September 22, 2015, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

India is the world’s second largest producer of sugar, behind only Brazil.  Its sugar industry is also a basket case. Let’s start with the fact that growing sugar requires huge amounts of water.  Indeed, according to a column this week by Ajit Ranade in the Pune Mirror, sugar crops in Maharashtra take up “3 percent […]
