Harry Reid is not good for Nevada

Reid Teams up with Sandoval, Ralston to Fight Tax Repeal “Crazies”

Yesterday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid joined the attacks on Nevada citizens who are seeking to repeal the $1.4 billion tax hike passed by the 2015 Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Brian “America’s Worst Governor” Sandoval despite the fact that not one of them last year campaigned on such a tax hike and despite the fact that almost 80 percent of Nevada voters rejected the gross receipts tax component at the ballot box last November.

In an interview with Michelle Rindels of the Associated Press, Reid vowed to do “everything I can” to stop our tax repeal effort, declaring that “it would be a real disservice to our state if the crazies were able to prevail.”

“Crazies.”

Nice.

He sounds like liberal blogger Jon Ralston.

From the AP story…

“Sen. Harry Reid said he’s willing to do everything he can to help Gov. Brian Sandoval’s $1.1 billion tax package survive a potential challenge at the ballot, even though he’s not actively involved in the fight now.

“The Democratic U.S. Senate leader had high praise for the Republican governor during an interview Thursday in his Reno office.

“’Sandoval and I don’t agree on stuff, but we agree on a lot, and I think what he was able to do with that Legislature was masterful,’ Reid said. ‘I think it would be a real disservice to our state if the crazies were able to prevail.’

“While the tax package garnered more than the necessary two-thirds vote in the Republican controlled Legislature this spring, conservative opponents say it was adopted against the will of voters who overwhelmingly rejected the margins tax on the 2014 ballot.

“One group has filed a long-shot petition to repeal the entire three-part package, while another group is planning a campaign to repeal just one portion of it. Republican state Controller Ron Knecht, who’s involved in the latter effort, said organizers might file a petition as early as next week.”

Speaking of Knecht’s group, it has now officially filed their PAC (political action committee) with the Secretary of State. “RIP Commerce Tax, Inc.” lists the following officers…

Conservative Nevada State Controller Ron Knecht, president
Conservative Las Vegas City Councilman Bob Beers, secretary/treasurer
Conservative former Nevada State Assemblyman Ed Goedhart, vice president
Conservative activist/radio talk show host Theresa Catalani, vice president
Conservative Assemblywoman Victoria Seaman, vice president

I expect RIP Commerce Tax PAC will file its actual tax repeal referendum sometime next week.

So the rosters are set.

On one side there’s Sandoval, Reid, Ralston, a bunch of RINOs (Republicans in Name Only) and a harry reidhost of deep-pocketed special interests.

On the other side there’s our underfunded army of citizens, taxpayers and small business owners.

You know, “the people.”

Which side are you on?

relocating from Nevada to Wyoming

I’m moving my company from Nevada to Wyoming and here is why….

I’ve been a Nevada resident all my life.  I’m an entrepreneur and having my businesses based in Nevada has always been beneficial to me. Until now.

In the last legislative session, The Governor of the Great State of Nevada, Brian Sandoval, made a decision to push through new taxes and fees on companies in Nevada, or having their corporations based in Nevada.  His move to do this was through legislation that was precisely the same as a bill that had been turned down by the majority of voters in the State in the previous voting cycle.  So that is my ‘why’.

Now the ‘how’ and the great benefits that me and my little network of corporations and LLC’s are getting.  LOWER FEES and less government intrusion.  Yes, Wyoming is welcoming me with open arms!

I contacted Wyoming Discount Registered Agent and spoke at length about this with Polly.  Polly told me that they had suspected that this was going to happen and they set everything up so that they could help their Nevada clients realize the benefits of moving their corporations to Wyoming.  And they wanted to be the best professionals at making the transition inexpensive and painless.  For me, it cost less to move my companies than it would have cost in the increases that I would have had, leaving my companies in Nevada.

So, If you want to save money, or you just want to Let the Governor know what a mistake he made by going against the will of his constituents, you should look into making the move to Wyoming (for your corporations).

Happy Trails! (can somebody queue up the traveling music please?)

success attracts success image

Success attracts success and failure attracts failure because of the law of harmonious attraction

In physics, positives attract negatives and vice versa, but in human relationships the opposite is true. Negative people attract only other negative people, while positive thinkers attract like-minded individuals. You will find that when you begin to achieve success more successes will follow. This is the law of harmonious attraction. When riches begin to come your way, you’ll be amazed how quickly they accumulate. Train your mind to visualize yourself acquiring a specific amount of wealth or achieving a certain goal — whatever you most desire. Then use self-suggestion to persuade your subconscious mind that you can achieve your goal, and put your plan into action. When you use the tools that you have at your disposal to prepare yourself for success and visualize yourself as having already reached your objective, you can achieve any reasonable goal that you set for yourself.
