A shocking discovery on why your power bill is higher than it should be

On March 27, 2015, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

When it comes to electricity generation and transmission, I don’t know a kilowatt from J.J. Watt.  But I do know this: If the government gets involved, someone’s gonna get shocked. Indeed, imagine my surprise when I discovered that my power bill – as well as yours – is higher because we’re subsidizing the installation of […]

Marketer of the Month

On March 20, 2015, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

Please pardon this little detour into a little fatherly pride… As many of you know, in addition to my day job of irritating liberals I’m also a marketing consultant to small businesses.  As such, I’ve been driving down to San Diego once a month to attend a marketing meet-up of usually 50-60 small business owners […]

Assembly GOP should tell Sandoval to go back to the drawing board

On March 19, 2015, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

I remember a time back in the 6th grade when I turned in a book report.  Mr. Levanis reviewed it, handed it back to me and said, “This isn’t acceptable.  Go back and do it over.” And that’s EXACTLY what Republicans in the Assembly should tell Gov. Brian Sandoval about his $7.3 billion budget and […]

Sugar Mill Owners Threatened with Jail and Mosquitoes

On March 18, 2015, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

India is the world’s #2 sugar producer.  Its sugar industry is also a royal mess. In an effort to woo the nation’s sugar farmers, the government set an above-market price that Indian sugar mills were required to pay sugar farmers for raw sugar.  As such, sugar farmers went into production overdrive, growing far more sugar […]

My Friend, the Gay Terrorist Sympathizer

On March 16, 2015, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

(Chuck Muth) – Talk-show host Glenn Beck was all over a jaw-dropping, earth-shattering revelation last week, sounding the alarm from coast-to-coast about a “very dangerous” national conservative leader. If you haven’t heard this story already, you’re simply not going to believe it… It was the morning of 9-11. Yes, that 9-11. 2001. And according to […]

 

Look Out Taxpayers, Here Come the Republicans!

On March 11, 2015, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

It wasn’t supposed to be like this. When Republicans won the Governor’s office, as well as control of the State Senate and the State Assembly last November, Nevada taxpayers were supposed to be safe.  At least for this one session. Indeed, for this one session – the first time the GOP has held all three […]

Time to End 40-Year Ban on U.S. Oil Exports

On March 10, 2015, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

Nothing succeeds like success.  Unless, of course, you’re the Obama administration. The success of hydraulic fracturing – “fracking” – for the purpose of oil production in the U.S. has been nothing short of spectacular.  Oil is flowing as freely as 99-cent margaritas at Stations Casinos.  And, believe it or not, after decades of dependence on […]

What Horse Racing and the Global Sugar Market have in Common

On March 10, 2015, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

Agri-Pulse.com reported last week… “Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., reintroduced a bill Friday that encourages the administration to target foreign sugar subsidies. Under the ‘Zero-for-Zero’ plan, U.S. sugar policy would also be rolled back in exchange for the elimination of foreign programs, which Yoho says are distorting world prices and inhibiting a free market.” House Concurrent […]

Assembly Republicans Fail to Shoot Down Elk Tax

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

AB78 would increase the fee for a “tag” to hunt elk in Nevada by $5.  The money would be used to mitigate property damage done by elk and, so I’ve been told by one legislator, elk hunters support this tax hike. Call me skeptical, so I did a little checking.  Here’s what I found… The […]
