Re: “Nelson suit against Game and Fish dismissed

Joesixpack: No. It means that one group of self-absorbed a*&holes has declared victory in Round I. This will be followed by a statement by the other group of self-absorbed a*&holes that they are "outraged," "saddened," disappointed," etc. etc. by the judge's ruling, with a vow to appeal to pursue the interests of "the people," "good government," "the rule of law," etc. Which will be followed by a notice of appeal, more press releases, etc. All the while, the lawyers for the respective camps of self-absorbed a*&holes will be spending gobs of more time, and billable hours, pursuing the case, laughing their way to their respective banks.

Re: “City Board puts sales tax on ballot

klowe: I'm close to where you are. I guess the difference is that I'm tired of holding my nose while voting, and I'm not going to do it here. And, I'm going to hope that in the next mayoral election there is a candidate who will promise not to engage in this type of budgetary hostage-taking.

Re: “City Board puts sales tax on ballot

There's no question the revenue is needed. And if all the proceeds of the tax increase were legally restricted to expansion of needed police and fire protection, repair of streets, parks improvements, and the like, I'd be beating down doors to encourage my neighbors to vote Yes. But the economic development slush fund vagaries, coupled with the lack of real accountability of monies previously spent to subsidize the Chamber of Commerce, and the inherently regressive nature of a sales tax, make me want to vomit. So I will vote "no," and will encourage my friends and neighbors to do the same.

Re: “Stephens takes a beating in Las Vegas court

The Court's order goes into brutal detail to explain how Righthaven (and Stephens) made untenable claims about the nature of the agreement between Stephens and Righthaven and, more important, about how Righthaven violated court rules requiring the disclosure of parties that had a pecuniary interest in the outcome of the case (i.e., Stephens). It is also clear that this particular judge had been misled by Righthaven in this regard in one or more similar cases, and his honor is no longer amused. Vigorous advocacy in court is both proper and expected; outright misrepresentations and failing to make mandatory disclosures are not. When you go to court asking for something, you better make sure your hands are clean. Evidently Righthaven, Stephens, and perhaps their attorneys thought this basic rule didn't apply to them.

Re: “Hump day line

If there is a just deity, let's hope there's a special place in hell for monsters like Rekers, and for those who have relied upon his alleged "science" to further their agenda of pure hate under the banner of "family" or biblical values.

Re: “Play ball! The line is open.

Max: You're a fogey. But so am I. The pic is hideous, almost vomit-inducing. Can't imagine anyone being able to watch any sport played on that abomination.

Re: “A Night at the Opera

Yes, those Republicans, targeting government waste wherever it may lurk. How much public money and time has been spent marketing/branding our state as "The Natural State?" All of which will have to be undone, re-done, etc.

What a nit-wit.
