AIR DATE: March 6, 2013

Tired of talking about sequestration yet? We're not. Join our news-savvy panel for a discussion of that topic and others. Is Nevada ready for higher speed limits? Are we doing enough to keep the Strip safe? Would you buy a ticket for Titanic II? (A sequel to the ship, not the movie.)

And whatever else is on your mind.

 

GUESTS

Deborah Coonts, author

Derek Washington, Stonewall Democrats

    I completely support safe crosswalks however, every morning when I drive to work I see kids unattended who are careless around cars. Many children play around while walking to school, parents should take time to educate their children around crosswalk safety. It is not only the drivers responsibility but also the pedestrians.

    I'd like to have a discussion of the culpability of these night clubs like Haze that bring in acts like French Montana (connected to Rick Ross) knowing full well of gang problems they have had in Miami! Great job guys! The shooting was carried internationally and now our struggling economy just got a black eye!

    The basic problem with sending our money to D.C. is that it is either wasted on crap or given to people who didn't earn it; and these categories of spending include paying government employees to do either nothing, or to do things that don't need to be done. Such government spending is non-productive and reduces our standard of living. On the other hand, money left in private hands is necessarily spent or invested productively, and that increases our standard of living. Indeed, the sequester is only about 2%, and on top of that it is not a real decrease per se, but a decrease in a planned increase; so, even *with* a sequester, government spending will *increase* this year! If we can't tolerate such trivial budget cutting, there's no way the budget will *ever* be balanced, and that is simply not sustainable, no matter what one perceives as "needs". Personally, I think nearly all government spending falls into the category of "wants" and is therefore unnecessary.

    I was disturbed and disgusted with D. Washington's comments about the shooting on the Strip and by his pleasure that this happened in Las Vegas. The whole segment was insensitive.

    Why are Republicans so selfish? Do they not get that the services they dismiss as too costly are critical in our complex society. Isn't this just politics as usual to discredit Obama and his administration - slow the recovery - all those furloughed employees will not be paying taxes on lost income or buying a new car or washing machine or going out to dinner. So stupid. Why should we expect anything better from Republicans? I don't.

    re: yesterday's topic - including Insurance company in mal-practice law suit - It IS Insurance company's responsibility to thoroughly vet the providers on their panel - credentialing process is critical - and from what the attorney for the plaintiff said - this provider had a history of prior investigations/ complaints. The business of Insurance companies is BUSINESS As an RN working closely with patients as a case manager for a non-profit and for insurance companies and group practices authorizing admissions and utilization review for continuing care and case management my experience has been that most patients do not report injuries by M,D. - and rarely, if ever sue. Most are not sufficiently sophisticated and//or have a misplaced loyalty to the provider. They seldom will report even flagrant mal practice to an appropriate agency and consequently the offending providers The hospitals are reticent to punish the doctors as long as he/she admits patients to the hospital Just ask a few R.Ns Buyer beware - and if God forbid you need to hospitalized - have a competent person with you at all times at your bedside.

    Where did you get this kook panel? Can we have a discussion with people who don't sound like semi-literate boobs? Gee, I wonder why so many people consider Vegas an intellectual backwater filled with stupids or scumbags?

    Discussion at my watercooler: HJR 192 and the fact that all the talk about US debt doesn't matter ..other than it's kept on purpose...because the US is kept in constant bankruptcy.
