LETTER: Clark County wants to regulate the poor out of business

Members of the Clark County Commission are living in a different universe. They have no common sense when it comes to making laws to regulate street vendors. They are regulating these poor people right out of business, and taxpayers will end up supporting these hard-working people.

I have an idea: Why don’t they give away their products for free, which means no license or health card or insurance required? They can say a gratuity is helpful. They will probably make more money than they did before, and they can set up anywhere they want. There will be a few people who will try to take advantage of them, but the regulatory state will not get a dime. Let’s hear it for free enterprise.

The R-J should acknowledge that Mr. Trump’s lies, frauds, defamations, criminal indictments and convictions are exponentially worse than Hunter’s laptop being evidence or any of the other alleged Biden missteps.

LETTER: Trump tries to win Nevada

Mr. Trump advocating for tax-free tip income is definitely one approach to winning Nevada. But my tip to Mr. Trump is to pick Marco Rubio and show the diversity of the GOP.
