Presidential candidates on both sides of the aisle want to lift the lower and middle classes. But to join the middle class, you must have a good job. And an elevated minimum wage prices the unskilled out of the job market, delaying or denying young people an entrance to the workforce.

In the Nov. 22 Viewpoints section of the Review-Journal, someone had the silly idea of letting Michelle Malkin and Kathleen Parker give opposing viewpoints on allowing Syrian refugees into the U.S. It was silly because of Ms. Malkin's consistent practice of simply making stuff up to suit any issue on which she is writing.
You'd think that Gov. Brian Sandoval would be happier now than he was before the 2014 election. But he's fought so much with Republican lawmakers and state officers that he may be longing for the calmer days of divided government.
For decades, federal agencies have been been plagued by inefficiency, incompetence and even illegal activity.
The editorial on rooftop solar was focused on the wrong industry. It should be that NV Energy must pay. How do you justify NV Energy's request to spend close to $1 billion to build a gas-fired generating plant, so that it can avoid purchasing power from out of state?
The federal government could create a massive revenue generator, without increasing taxes, if Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., and his 24 colleagues on the Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation help pass legislation to transfer wireless resources from Washington's control to the private sector.
At the intersection of the energy industry and environmentalism, of ranching and recreation, of economic development and preservation, is U.S. public land policy. No wonder the issue creates such sharp partisan divisions.
After reading yet another of the Review-Journal's interminable editorials opposing Obamacare, I was confused about the logic that was expressed in the latest diatribe ("Unaffordable care," Monday Review-Journal).
This Thanksgiving, too many people are eager to talk up America's shortcomings, real or perceived. In many instances, "perceived" is winning the day.
Less than a year from now, Americans will elect their next president. Not surprisingly, the campaign for the most important job in the world has been highly divisive.
Letters from Marlene Drozd, Douglas Murphy, Michael Pravica and Julie Fredericksen.
Like most physicians, Dr. Ben Carson has a funny story about the behavior of insurance companies.
As consumers and television fans, we're blessed to be living in a golden age of TV.
If there were any lingering doubts about Las Vegas' status as a hotbed of baseball, those were completely erased during a historic week that would be hard for any other city to match.
Letters from Joseph Schillmoeller, Robert S. Tobias and Tim Hicks.
Political advocacy for Nevada veterans is about to get nastier and more confusing — and perhaps much better.
The Affordable Care Act was supposed to reduce health care costs for millions of Americans. Instead, it has increased both premiums and out-of-pocket costs to the point that Obamacare insurance is essentially worthless to families living paycheck to paycheck.
NV Energy has taken great care to keep rates stable while ensuring we are able to meet the energy needs of our state. Between 2006 and 2012, NV Energy engaged in an aggressive building-and-acquisition strategy to increase our owned-generating fleet, in order to shield our customers from unpredictable energy markets.
Letters from Lois Peters, Henry Soloway, Joanne Brunelle, Jan Mills and Ty Weller.
Longtime readers know I'm against the low-speed school zones that surround local campuses.
Tell me: What's a suicide bomber doing with a passport? He's not going anywhere. And, though I'm not a religious scholar, I doubt that a passport is required in paradise for a martyr to access his 72 black-eyed virgins.
We shouldn't be surprised that many Americans fear the fresh arrival of Syrian refugees, in the wake of the Nov. 13 Paris slaughter by jihadists, including at least one who appears to have entered Europe posing as a refugee.
Business owners who chose to lease retail space at downtown's Container Park and are now complaining about lack of foot traffic and blaming their lack of prosperity on property management should take a closer look at their own business plans to explain their failures ("Uncontained complaints," Nov. 13 Review-Journal). I fully support independent businesses, but I also recognize new businesses often fail due to inexperience and poor decisions made by the owners and operators.
