With President Bill Clinton re-elected for another four years as our leader, we have to wonder, What next
when todays Commander- in-Chief, who never wore a uniform, presumes to immediately set policies about personnel matters which qualified military leaders had understood and quietly managed many years B.C.;
when there are thousands more police on our streets and guns have been confiscated from citizens (as in Waco, Texas);
when parental authority can be signed over to the jurisdiction of the United Nations (not unlike our young men in uniform);
when immigration regulations are quietly repealed without congressional knowledge or approval (giving asylum to the HIV and AIDS afflicted);
when more money is being spent defending, protecting, and coddling criminals and misfits than is spent on educating our children;
when children are being taught more about deviant sex, condom techniques, and rights than about responsibility and respect, or those oldies the 3 Rs, History and hickory sticks;
when America is no longer united by a common language, and free speech includes flag-burning, vulgarity on TV and tax supported sacrilegious art, but a citizen is not allowed to voice an opinion to the president that he sucks or call him a bozo;
when the reserved rights of the states are preempted by federal rules and regulations and personal and private property rights are disappearing under left-handed pen flourishes;
when it takes a go-between to be born, to live, to work, to play, to spend, to save, to die, to be buried and to divvy up what he/she/it couldnt take with him/her/it;
when a citizen can become an overnight millionaire by merely being irresponsible (coffee is hot, stupid),
when people we
wouldnt want in our homes are wined and dined in
our White House;

Due to a programming change, the Rush Limbaugh Show will no longer be broadcast on KDWN in Las Vegas. The Show has moved to KVEG. However, Nevada Perspectives will continue to be broadcast on KDWN at the regular drive times. NPRI is currently seeking funding for national syndication which would allow our commentaries to be broadcast nationwide. Keep your fingers crossed and thank you for your continued support and encouragement. - Ed.
Working in the State Treasures office affords me the regular benefit of having many interesting and important policy papers come across my desk, but rarely am I compelled to write a fan letter. Your Welfare As We Know It piece, however, was absolutely terrific and I just wanted to tell you thanks for an issue brief that our legislators should contemplate very carefully. For this and all the other thoughtful work NPRI does, I commend you.
On a related note, Kelly and I watched Eloise Anderson on 60 Minutes some time ago, and were completely enraptured with her common sense ideas, passions and personal credibility in discussing honest welfare reform. We will look forward to joining you on February 5.
