Choice to make at poll obvious

To say I was taken aback by the first presidential debate would be a severe understatement. While all three debaters left much to be desired, I was stunned that pollster Frank Luntz, who watched with a cadre of unsure voters, tweeted, “This debate has actually convinced some undecided voters to not vote at all.”

If you’re waiting for the outcome of a Democratic National Committee media-rigged presidential debate to decide who to vote for, you haven’t been paying attention to: the three-year special council investigation and impeachment circus, funded by President (Donald) Trump’s political opponents in 2016; the three years of historic economic growth; the record low unemployment, especially for women and minorities; and the economic bounce-back after a pandemic that blue-state governors exploited to seize political power by wreaking havoc on their states’ economies.

If we could clone Boulder City and repopulate America with its DNA, what a great country we would have. President Trump would overwhelmingly be re-elected with the highest voting turnout in history. Naturally, this is not possible. However, if every voter votes in person or via absentee ballot, I believe President Trump will win in a landslide.

The major problem facing our country this election cycle is the mail-in ballot. The Democrats scream that if President Trump can mail in his ballot, so can Joe and Jane Citizen. Therein lies a nuance (a subtle difference in or shade of meaning).

The Democrats want you to believe a mail-in ballot and an absentee ballot are the same. They are not. One must request an absentee ballot and verify their identity. Mail-in ballots are being sent to millions of folks unsolicited. Furthermore, ballot harvesting these mail-in ballots is an ongoing process fraught with fraud and political chicanery.

The choices this time are obvious. A vote for Joe Biden to be 46 is a vote for Kamala Harris to be 47. In my opinion, Biden doesn’t have the stamina or the mental acuity to last more than a few months. Do you want three different presidents in 2021? I don’t.

Abraham Lincoln said, “How many legs does a dog have if you call his tail a leg? Four. Saying that a tail is a leg doesn’t make it a leg.” Just because one names their organizations “Black Lives Matter” and “Antifa” doesn’t mean black lives matter or “antifa” means anti-fascist. However, it is ironic that Antifa tactics are fascist in nature.

Black lives matter, but the Black Lives Matter organization is a self-admitted Marxist organization that has violently inflicted mayhem on many cities this summer. If BLM has improved the life of one black person or one black-owned business, I haven’t seen it.

If Biden-Harris win the White House, their party will eliminate charter schools and other choices in education. Furthermore, your children and grandchildren will be indoctrinated by BLM and their like-minded confederates within the teachers’ unions and other organizations.

A Biden-Harris White House will undo the economic gains of the Trump-Pence White House and push us to the brink of socialism. Their policies will give a caste-like system a solid foothold in our society. Few will have an opportunity for upward advancement.

Abraham Lincoln also said, “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”

I believe that most of the American people see through the Democratic Party and their stenographers in the media.

If you’re part of the majority that have made up their minds this election cycle, please remember that in addition to voting for President Trump, we must flip the House of Representatives to a Republican majority. (Neither Nevada senator is up for re-election).

Early voting starts on Oct. 17. If you haven’t made up your mind yet, please do not vote.

Not on my turf

In early April, the City Council heard a presentation by Lage Design about staff’s recommended option to remove 35% of the turf at the Boulder City Municipal Golf Course.

I-11 is NOT the Autobahn

When the I-11 highway opened almost six years ago, it alleviated much of the heavy traffic congestion through Boulder City. But this beautiful expanse of open road brought with it a sense that “opening up” and putting the pedal to the metal is OK. It’s not.

New law shapes golf course design

I like golf. While I was in college, I decided to take a class in golf – you could call it a “golf course” course. I figured it would be a great way to relax, enjoy nature, and (maybe) boost my grade point average at the same time! For a semester, I learned the basics: how to drive, chip, putt. It was enjoyable. Many of my classmates that semester had been golfing for years. They were better than me, but I was determined to get a good grade out of the class.

The art of communication in consciousness

For Memorial Day I am exploring human consciousness with you. Many misunderstandings have been fought over the lack of a mutual perspective among the parties involved. What better gift is there than one that assists in the art of communication? My work in formulating the discipline of Aquarian Theosophy has led me to the following understanding of humanities’ reality; consciousness is the basis of understanding.

Alumni events, marriage and a real Nazi

Ron’s column from a few weeks ago inspired me to tell a story about a weird event from my past. Mine is not as exciting as his in that there is no wrestler named Silo Sam. But there is at least one Nazi. And, no, not the current “I disagree with your politics so you are a Nazi” version. An actual card-carrying member of the party.

Las Vegas Veterans’ Memorial to Boulder City?

Veterans’ memorials can be found all over the Silver State. They are well deserved. They honor individuals who served the nation, and also commemorate battles and events regarding the many military anniversaries in Nevada.

City manager bids fond farewell

I may be leaving Boulder City, but it was not an easy decision. From the first time I came in and met the staff and community leaders, I saw a city filled with people who truly care about where they live and work. I am grateful for the opportunities I have had to work with some incredible people.

Is the grass always greener?

Many people in the past played a golf game to cement a business deal, didn’t they? They also played golf to socialize. Has Boulder City recognized lessening play on golf courses? Or, from another perspective, what happens when million-dollar homes are placed around our open space golf course with views of the McCullough Mountains? Do fewer people play golf on the Boulder Creek golf course?
