I have watched all the Democratic debates and town halls, and I agree with Sen. Bernie Sanders that a revolution must occur. I do, however, believe that Sen. Sanders is part of the establishment, because of all his congressional committee work. The revolution is for Hillary Clinton.

Mehul R. Mehta, plant manager of the GE Engine Service facility in North Las Vegas, believes the U.S. Export-Import Bank is vital to GE and other companies and that without it, they would not be able to compete with foreign companies. He points out that 60 other countries have similar taxpayer-subsidized banks ("Nevada's congressional delegation must support Ex-Im Bank," July 30 Review-Journal).
Suddenly, the big topic for discussion concerns Las Vegas hotels planning to charge for parking, after many years of providing free parking.
Regarding John L. Smith's column on the Nevada State Veterans Home, I am unable to discuss the pending litigation, but I am able to address other issues raised in the commentary.

A recent article on the new rooftop solar rate structure states, and not for the first time, that "filings with the PUC show that any new revenue from the change would go to reducing overall future rate increases for all ratepayers, not to Berkshire Hathaway or its shareholders" ("Agency: Rethink new rate structure," Jan. 9 Review-Journal).
The controversy about rooftop solar power generation and the prices paid for excess generation versus power drawn from the grid is just a microcosm of what will happen nationwide as politicians mandate ever higher requirements for electric companies to generate more power from renewable sources (solar and wind). These sources of electricity are inherently intermittent and unreliable.
I found it ironic that Stephen T. Parente's commentary on the "failed" implementation of the Affordable Care Act in Nevada was published the same week that it was reported that a record number of Nevadans had enrolled in health insurance through Nevada Health Link

Law enforcement officials at every level are reaping the whirlwind they created by not properly managing the Cliven Bundy incident in 2014.
Tara Pike and Nick Nordstrom's op-ed is more frivolous and far less factual than they claim.
Letters from Fredric Rolando and Dan Barry.
In response to David A. Fowler's letter on the rooftop solar ruling by the Nevada Public Utilities Commission ("Net metering decision," Tuesday Review-Journal), I have to hand it to the RJ for allowing every possible opinion to be printed.
In response to the article on the officer-involved shooting on New Year's Eve ("Missteps detailed in shooting," Tuesday Review-Journal), I would like to see future articles such as this subtitled, "Convicted criminal killed for not following instructions from police," rather than the R-J's subtitle, "Unarmed fugitive holding phone killed."
NV Energy would have you believe that supplying a rooftop solar customer with electrical power is far different than supplying electrical power to a nonsolar customer. Nothing could not be further from the truth.
The attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif., are examples of a pattern of terror that predictably will be repeated in the months and years ahead. No gathering of Americans will be safe. All public gatherings, religious and secular, will be targeted and increasingly vulnerable. Counteractive measures must be planned, organized and implemented.
Regarding the article on the juvenile residential facility and the subsequent editorial, I would respond: While comparing the county's proposed 5,000-square-foot juvenile residential facility, with an estimated cost of $2.9 million, to a multimillion dollar luxury home aids in portraying government excess and waste, such comparisons are simply not fair.
Regarding the ruling on rooftop solar rates, net metering is no more and no less an extension of a co-generation facility in small scale.
Letters from Leon Pitt, Richard McGarrity, Robert Raider, and Mike Bryant.
Letters from Robert Morrow, Doug Nusbaum, and Fred G. Breitling.
Regarding the article on the new net metering rate structure for rooftop solar owners ("PUC OKs new solar rates," Dec. 23 Review-Journal), let's look at this and see what's really going on.
Letters from Dan Zelna, Seth McNabb, William Golas, and Morton Friedlander.
Regarding the ruling in the shooting death of Tamir Rice, Reuters reported the following: "A grand jury cleared two Cleveland police officers on Monday in the November 2014 fatal shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, who was brandishing a toy gun in a park." The prosecutor said there was a lack of evidence indicating criminal activity.
