Here’s an STD You’ll Actually WANT to Catch!


(Chuck Muth) – Save the Date (STD): March 9, 2024.

Yes, that’s “National Meatball Day.”

And yes, that’s the day before Hollywood’s far-left Academy Awards show.

But it’s also the date for Citizen Outreach’s “2024 Conservative of the Year” awards dinner – again to be held at the Italian-American Club in Las Vegas, the PERFECT venue to celebrate National Meatball Day!

For those who have attended our sold-out events in 2023, you know we put a premium on making them FUN!

I figure if you’re going to financially support our programs and projects – including our Pigpen Project and our Campaign Management College – the least we can do is show you a good time instead of just a rubber-chicken dinner and a bunch of boring political speeches.

I know the entertainment theme we’re going to build the dinner around but haven’t confirmed and booked them yet.  But I guarantee it’s gonna be a raucous good time!

In the meantime, here’s how you can help before taking off for the Christmas weekend…

I have some people in mind for some of the awards but want to make sure we haven’t missed anyone who should be considered.  So if you’d like to nominate someone, please shoot your suggestions to

Among the award categories…

  • Conservative of the Year
  • Rising Star
  • Courage Under Fire
  • Unsung Hero
  • Reagan Legacy Award

As soon as everything is in place, I’ll give you the details.  “Inner Circle” members will get first crack at individual tickets after we finish lining up sponsors and host committee members.

In the meantime, just STD.

Need Your Advice on a New Issue: The DMV

I’ve had mixed encounters with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) over the past couple of years.

In rare cases, I was able to conduct required business online and everything was easy and convenient.  Most of the time, however, it was a nightmare.

So much so that instead of waiting in line to be “serviced” by some surly agent with an attitude who’s just watching the clock for quitting time, I’ve opted to pay for a third-party registration service company to handle the transaction for me.

It’s kinda like a toll road.  If you pay a little extra, you can avoid bumper-to-bumper traffic and get where you want to go faster and with far less hassle.  It’s a fee many are willing to cough up to avoid the aggravation and wasted time.

Anyway, fixing the DMV is an issue that transcends partisan lines.  Voters of all persuasions HATE the idea of having to deal with the DMV in person – *IF* they can even get an “appointment.”

So I want to flesh out this issue some more for the 2024 election cycle.  And here’s how you can help: Share your DMV war story/stories with me.

Where has it come up short and/or dropped the ball?

What irritates you about dealing with the DMV?

And what changes do you think should be implemented to make the lives of average Nevadans less stressful and aggravating?

Laughter is Still the Best Medicine

Democrat Assembly Speaker Steve “Donut Boy” Yeager was driving from Vegas to Carson City.  On the way – in one of the small, rural Nevada towns in between – he ran a stop sign and was pulled over by the local sheriff.

Being a big-shot lawyer and politician whose party wants to defund the police, he figured he was a lot smarter than this local town “hick” sheriff.

The sheriff politely asked for the Yeagermeister’s license and registration.  To which the proprietor of Carson City’s “Favor Factory” replied snippily, “What for?”

The sheriff responded, “You didn’t come to a complete stop at the stop sign.”

To which Yeager replied with a generous slab of snark, “I slowed down and no one was coming.”

“You still didn’t come to a complete stop,” the sheriff replied impatiently. “License and registration, please.”

Trying to show off his superior lawyerly acumen, Donut Boy challenged…

“If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I’ll give you my license and registration and you can give me the ticket.  If not, you let me go and don’t give me the ticket.”

The grizzled sheriff smiled a wry smile and said, “That sounds fair.  Please exit your vehicle.”

As Yeager got out of the car, the sheriff took out his nightstick and proceeded to beat Donut Boy with it while asking, “Do you want me to stop or just slow down?”

“Maine Governor Janet Mills has proposed that Maine adopt California’s ban on all sales of internal combustion vehicles by 2035.  But just when the Maine Board of Environmental Protection was supposed to vote on the imbecilic plan, a winter storm caused widespread power outages in the state and the vote had to be delayed.” – Stephen Moore, Committee to Unleash Prosperity
