I Just Got "Push Polled" by Hillary Clinton's Nevada Campaign - Nolan Dalla
Nolan Dalla gets "push polled" by the Hillary Clinton campaign in Nevada, but they have no idea who they're fucking with....

I sort of expected this, and other dirty tactics to start showing up. We sort of expect it out of the republican party members, and no one really batted an eye when we found out that Ted Cruz staffers told voters at the Iowa Caucus that Ben Carson was going to drop out of the race. However, we should be aware that even those in the democratic party are willing to get dirty to win. So far, I haven’t seen this kind of behavior from Bernie Sanders. It’s a nice change of pace.

My beautiful Communist son
  • Arcade Gannon:*Upon entering the Strip.* I'll never understand the allure of giving away your money to the rich.
  • Arcade Gannon:*When the Courier says they want his help putting the Legion in power of Vegas.* My political beliefs are a bit more progressive than outright fascism, so I'll pass. Thanks
  • Arcade Gannon:*When asked if he always deflects personal questions* Only to obfuscate my past association with a fascist paramilitary organization.
  • Arcade Gannon:*Upon being told the Courier is interested in knowing about him and not to put himself down* Oh... and I like medicine and reading books about failed Pre-War socioeconomic policies.
Las Vegas Raiders just sounds lame

It was bad enough when we had to put up with LA Raiders.

Don’t do this to us.

Hey look.

Even if you don’t like Oakland, you do understand the cultural impact of that team.

Even though they suck, they are the shit on team of the NFL and have been for years and yet they still show up.

You gotta give that.

What’s better than one Bill? Two Bills of course…

Former President Bill Clinton spoke at the United Brotherhood of Carpenters International Training Center last night then I was invited to cover him again today at the Plumbers & Pipefitters Local No 525 here in Las Vegas speaking to Hillary for Nevada canvassers. Getting to know the staff pretty well know and access is definitely improving, they can hire me for now if they like :D

Here’s a little taste of my long day yesterday on the political journey here in Nevada, we had visits from both Donald Trump and President Bill Clinton - talk about opposing styles!  Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump brought his circus to a stage at South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa in Las Vegas where he took shots at Ted Cruz, Hillary, Mexico, the media and anybody else that he thought of. First time I’ve seen both of his sons on the campaign trail with him and even up on stage for a few minutes. He always makes it entertaining and a bit controversial….

As usual President Bill Clinton came with that “grandfatherly” demeanor of his and wooed the crowd during an organizing event for Hillary at the Advanced Technologies Academy. I’ve photographed him since he first ran for President years ago and he never disappoints, a master speaker who has a great ability to hold an audience. Nevada being a battleground state will keep the visits coming often, once the Presidential field thins a bit maybe it will slow down a tad. In October we host the final debate too…

     Her face was propped by a raised arm and her palm’s warm embrace was a resting spot for said face. Rhoda was supposed to be smiling warmly, looking on like Checkers knew what he was talking about. But things were turning icy on her end. And fast.

Her light-colored eyes were piercing. Not soft, lazily adoring. Her teeth went up and down at her cheek.

SHIT. You don’t know SHIT she wanted to exclaim. Toss a drink on him and that filthy suit. He didn’t know how he almost had two boys abandoned in this godforsaken Wasteland. He didn’t know how stupid it was to kill a mailwoman that didn’t care about Vegas politics, at all.

Take the chip! Leave her alive! She would have handed it over without any kind of fight! 

“…that so?” But, Rhoda spoke without venom. Still, it came off as a firm question, firmer than it needed to be.

“All you big Vegas men have big plans. I like it.”
