BY: - March 24, 2023

Superintendent Jesus Jara and CCSD Police Chief Mike Blackeye were called to a joint meeting of the Senate Judiciary and Education committees on Wednesday. The ostensible reason was to answer for the abuse of force at Durango High School shown in this viral video. But senators were told at the outset that they couldn’t talk […]

BY: - March 23, 2023

For roughly three years before it began skyrocketing in late 2021, the price of a metric ton of lithium carbonate mostly ambled along in the vicinity of $17,500. The price peaked in November 2022, at more than $86,800 per ton. More recently, it’s been plummeting, and as of Thursday morning was down to less than […]


We need to look at gun manufacturing, not just gun ownership

BY: and - March 21, 2023

There is a familiar pattern after the mass shootings that have become a well-known feature of American life. The initial shock and grief gives way to demands for greater regulation of gun ownership by Democrats, while Republicans dismiss such measures and blame mental illness instead. But if we actually want to do something about it, […]


The Fed is partying like it’s 1979

BY: - March 19, 2023

Working people in the U.S., and especially in Nevada, are not making too much money. It’s tempting to say “This message was brought to you by Captain Obvious,” and leave it at that. But there is much squawking that the Federal Reserve should hold off on raising interest rates again because that bank for the […]


In the era of legal marijuana, the kids are alright

BY: - March 17, 2023

“What about the children?” This was arguably the most frequently posed question by critics in the years prior to state-level marijuana legalization. Many legalization opponents presumed that legalizing cannabis for adults would lead to an increase in marijuana use among teens. But ten years following the first states’ decisions to legalize, data conclusively shows that […]


No, nobody’s raising your property tax rate. But they should.

BY: - March 16, 2023

Which radical woke liberal state imposes a bigger residential property tax burden than Nevada? Texas! So does the purportedly “free state” of Florida. Property tax burdens are higher in a bunch of other self-styled freedom loving – i.e, reliably red – states, including but not limited to Indiana, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Montana, Idaho, Missouri, Kentucky, […]


The story of Ron DeSantis’s amazing, awesome, heroic life

BY: - March 14, 2023

This is the book wrote by me, Ronald Dion DeSantis, aged 44-½. I wanted to call it “My Struggle,” but Casey said that wasn’t a good idea. So, we gave it the title “The Courage to be Free.” Because it’s all about courage. My courage. It’s about freedom, too: my freedom to make everybody do […]

BY: - March 13, 2023

When March Madness begins on March 14, 2023, it’s a sure bet that millions of Americans will be making wagers on the annual college basketball tournament.

Fox & fakes

BY: - March 9, 2023

The word “Nevada” pops up every now and then in the massive tranches of documents Dominion Voting Systems has been releasing as part of its defamation suit against Fox News. Mostly it’s in reference to fraudulent claims from, well, frauds, like Donald Trump surrogates Rudy Giuliani and Sydney Powell. Egged on by Fox’s on-air personalities, […]

Praise be.  Let us one and all give thanks, for almighty Tesla has bestowed on humble Nevada such generous bounty, and let us hope that we can be worthy of such gifts.

In epic fight between Nevada Democrats, the stakes couldn’t be lower

BY: - March 2, 2023

In 1973 Columbia University Political Science Professor Wallace Sayre reportedly said “Academic politics is the most vicious and bitter form of politics, because the stakes are so low.”  To which Nevada Democrats can say “hold my beer.” Sayre’s quip was more snarky than accurate. One need look no further than the Florida of Ron DeSantis […]
