RINO Joe Strikes Again

On April 27, 2011, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

Teens are free to trot down to the local abortion clinic without parental notification, let alone parental permission, but if SB 291 is passed into law, they’ll have to get a note from mommy before patronizing a tanning salon. This ridiculous bill passed the Senate this week with two Republican votes. One was term-limited Dean […]

On Easter Sunday, Carrie Herbertson, Nevada State Liaison for the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action, sent the following email to members of Nevada’s Assembly opposing a bill introduced by Assembly Speaker John Oceguera which, in essense, plagiarized four individual gun bills sponsored by other legislators and, as amended, increases the fee gun owners […]

On April 27, 2011, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

The following letter-to-the-editor appeared in today’s Record-Courier, in which I’m referred to as “the new counter-culture warrior.” I’m honored! EDITOR: Nevada Appeal columnist Chuck Muth took out an ad in the April 12 edition calling out Nevada State Assembly Speaker John Oceguera’s plagiarism of other legislators’ work. Sounds like an interesting news story. I wonder […]

 

Senate Republicans Who Love Government Too Much

On April 26, 2011, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

Over in the Nevada state Senate on Tuesday, three Republicans joined every Democrat in approving new government regulation – complete with a new $200 licensing tax (fee)! – of, get this, “Music Therapists.” What the hell is a Music Therapist you ask? Well, according to the American Music Therapy Association, music therapy “is the clinical […]

 

Republicans Who Love the Nanny State, Higher Taxes

On April 26, 2011, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

The Nevada state Assembly voted on Tuesday to expand the regulatory arm of government by requiring that mopeds be registered with the DMV, imposing a new registration “fee” (tax) on their owners, as well as require moped drivers and riders to wear full government-approved motorcycle helmets.

Atkinson’s Alarming Arrogance

On April 26, 2011, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

If you truly want to understand the arrogance of legislative Democrats consider this little item from Assemblyman Kelvin Atkinson (D-Isle of Man). Sen. Don Gustavson has introduced a bill to repeal Nevada’s nanny-state mandatory motorcycle helmet law in every session he’s been in at the state Assembly. This year he did so again, only as […]

 

Assembly Republicans Vote for Higher Taxes

On April 25, 2011, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

One of the oldest tricks in the liberal book is to couch tax and fee hikes into something “for the children” – and some Republicans fall for it, hook, line and sinker every time. And so it was on Monday with Assembly passage of AB 192. AB 192 could QUADRUPLE the fee for you to […]

 

Angle Can’t Win: The Untold Story from 2010

On April 25, 2011, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

It was around this time last year that Sharron Angle’s U.S. Senate campaign – thanks in part to the out-of-state Tea Party Express teaming up with Harry Reid’s supporters to boost her candidacy – began to take off. And by the time early voting began, it was pretty clear that Angle was definitely in a […]

 

The Heller Angle & Worst Case Scenario

On April 24, 2011, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

Over the weekend there has been some speculation that it might be in the GOP’s best interest if Gov. Brian Sandoval appoints a “placeholder” to fill the vacancy created by Sen. John Ensign’s resignation rather than appoint the obvious choice, Rep. Dean Heller. The argument is that it would cost the state too much money […]

 

The New RINO King

On April 24, 2011, in Muth's Truths, by Chuck Muth

RINO, of course, stands for “Republican in Name Only.” And while the tea party movement has helped place them on the endangered species list, there are still a few still running around posing a serious danger to limited government, individual liberty and fiscal conservatism. In fact, one was spotted in Carson City just last week. […]
