Life In The Left Lane


  • Tom Pitaro is representing defendants accused of trespassing and "vagrancy" at Red Rock Casino--a case which is turning into a first amendment issue and drawing the attention of the AG's office. [RJ]
  • Does Nevada need to have an annual legislative session? [Las Vegas Sun]
  • Did you know it's against the law to drive too slow--especially in the left lane? [Vegas Inc.]

  1. Someone needs to crush the culinary union. A corrupt cabal of commies.

  2. I am a Republican. I disapprove of many of the Culinary Union's tactics. But I also recognize that without the CU, the working class in this town would be quickly ravaged, and that's bad for all of us, including lawyers.

  3. The real issue with the Red Rock Trespass case is what seems to be the incompetency of the DA's office to handle a simple trespass charge. Citing the content of the flier for the charge was a huge mistake. Also, there is some issue with the warning given to the Defendants "via attorney." Crazy how a small charge is getting blown up.

  4. There is no love lost between Station Casino and myself, but in my opinion, the union is in the wrong here. Protest on the street/sidewalk in front of the property... dress up in a big rat costume for all I care, but the union does not get to enter into private property with the sole intent to shame the property owner and hotel guests for patronizing the property.

  5. @8:57 That's the most rational thing I've heard a republican say in a while. Now can you do something about Trump? and the rest of the party? ...please

  6. 12:27,

    8:57 here. I'm #NeverTrump. I will vote for Hillary, as disgusting as that is, if it's close in Nevada. There's not really much that Republicans like me can do to reason with an ignorant, angry mob.

    1. Third party. Help a third party break the 5% barrier that provides them equal access to the Presidential election campaign fund.

    4. 12:57: Why do you hate America? What has America done to you? America is down on its luck due to mendacious fools like Hillary. Trump wants to make America great again. Vote for America. Vote for Trump.

    5. 5:04, why do you hate America so much that you would support Trump or Sanders? You are one in the same.

  7. Dem convention was interesting this week. Clarified who I will be and will not be supporting. We have some real gems running for office. Bernie supporters were screaming obscenities at Boxer. Nice. Bernie, you should be proud.

    1. Agreed. Dems need to shut their mouths and fall in line.

    2. Boxer is a demon.

    3. Just because you may not like someone, you don't scream at them and curse at them. Save that for Burning Man, 5:00.

  8. As much as you dislike Trump, voting for Hillary Clinton should not be an option for republicans. Don't vote for president. You're dissent will be displayed and heard with the lowest voter turnout in modern history. If you vote for Hillary simply because you don't want Trump, then you give Hillary and the Dems the false sense of a mandate.

    1. That is the spirit. Don't vote, when veterans fight to give you the right to vote. 3:38 is a Bernie Bot.

      Delete
    2. Bernie bots, Bernie bots!

    3. The preferred term is "BernieBro."

      Delete
    4. The correct name is Bernie bots.

      Delete
    5. 3:38 did not say don't vote entirely, just don't vote for the president selection. Not voting for the president selection, but voting on all the down ticket races will show up in the statistics as a "none of the above," which effectively tells America that Trump and Hillary both suck. If Hillary or Trump get the "anyone but ____" voters, then it will create a false sense that those voters actually likes the opponent policies and positions, which is not the case.

  9. The veterans didn't fight to give me these two losers. Hey 4:47, you realize there are other people out there who recognize Hillary's lousy job performance over the last 20 years besides "Bernie Bots," right? And Trump is ridiculous. I love America, the troops, and my right to vote as much as anybody. And it is because I love them so much that there is no way in Hades I would ever defile my vote on either Trump or Hillary. Hoping for a good third-party candidate.

  10. Question - does voting for the Libertarian party for the sole purpose of enabling them to suck at the Presidential campaign fund teat, a teat I don't think should exist, much less be supported by libertarians, make me a bad libertarian? Or does it just mean that I acknowledge the need for a third party to make some headway into the shitshow?

  11. 9:24, yeah, Bernie Bots who get in women's faces in their 70s and eighties to pick fights because they are supporting Hillary. You should be real proud of yourself. Calling you a Bernie Bot is being generous.

  12. Bernard Sanders is an asshole.
