Put an End to Campaign Calls to Your Home

You know election day is approaching when the phone starts ringing. I spent the last weekend as one of those people ringing your phone encouraging voters to get out the vote for Las Vegas mayor.

Many people were not happy to hear from me. I heard the complaints that all candidates have been ringing phones off the hook.

Here are some hints to get those calls off of your phone. If you think that this Las Vegas mayor race has been bad just imagine what 2012 and all the primaries will be like!

1.) Vote early. The call lists are generated to connect with voters who have not already voted. If you hate the calls, but want to remain open to your party to contact you – vote early.

2.) Make your voter information confidential by following the steps below:

Login to the Clark County voters website at http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/Depts/election/Pages/default.aspx from this site you can type in your first and last name and date of birth to pull up your voter record.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Click to pick the option to make your address and phone number confidential. This means that you will no longer be contacted by campaigns via phone or at your door.

The website will then pull up this request form for you to sign and either mail or fax to 455-2981.

You can track the progress of your request on the county elections website.

Campaigns really do not want to waste their resources on voters who do not want to hear from them.

If you do not want to get calls make your request now. We can all easily predict that 2012 will have many more calls ahead.

Watch Out of Touch Carolyn Goodman for Yourself – VIDEO

This clip from the interview portion of her appearance at the Lambda luncheon on May 11, 2011.

Highlights of this clip:

  • If gay marriage is important to you – move to a state that has it. Clip :40
  • Equates social security to public employees ability to assign benefits to their domestic partner  Clip 1:42
  • When asked about voting for or against same sex marriage Goodman replied she did not vote at all. Clip 2:52
  • Her position is that her religious beliefs prevent her from supporting same sex marriage. Clip 3:38
  •  Goes on to say that after the rest of the states accepts it that then she would support gay marriage. Clip 4:40
  • Meadows school employs individuals who “prefer” a gay or lesbian lifestyle. Clip 5:12
  • The transition conversation starts at 7:18 as how Goodman would handle a transgender teacher.

This video starts off with a great question as to which way goes Carolyn want it? Carrying on for Oscar or her own woman?

  • Brags about work of Oscar getting involved to trade land with Lehman Bros then double tracks back when Steve Friess brilliantly asks her “that sounds like government getting involved…” Clip 3:18
  • Asked for specifics about shrinking government – She has no ideas. Clip 4:45
  • Again pressed for specifics noting that many luncheon attendees wrote this word on their questions and she is in fact married to the mayor – Clip 6:20
Goodness it appears that Goodman does not know how to avail herself of the public budget information available on LasVegasNevada.gov! 

This final clip

  • What LGBT events have you been to since the primaries? She laments that no one gave her the questions ahead of time. Clip 1:00
  • At this point in the clip 1:32 she has a “gay attack” flapping her arms about who is gay who is not gay “If you’re gay its wonderful be gay and enjoy it and make the most of your life of it”- to the audible snickering of the audience.
  • She names off having had “transvestites” at her campaign events. Clip 1:55

Hats off to Steve Friess for maintaining his composure behind the smile on this moment! 

  • Discusses the DREAM act. Clip 2:22
  • Mentions that the DREAM act has something to do with illegal aliens. Clip 2:46

Hour One of the show live from CMT 

Hour Two of the show live from CMT – Great interview with Tim  – His interview starts at 9:50 into the recording

We were blessed to have the time that we had with Tim and know how much and why his friends adored him so much.

Cashetta is Coming Back to Vegas Baby!

I love Cashetta! She is one class act locals can’t resist. I first wrote about Cashetta for the 24 Hours of Different Las Vegas Dates book. It was hour 23 Life’s A Drag and how the recession has been tough in drag.

Check out how much Vegas fun her last show was:

My 11 year old daughter loved her last magic show – but sadly the new show is 18 and older only. That means Mama can have an appletini!

Now she is coming back with psychic powers? Look out craps tables! Will she come and blow on our dice? How does a psychic perform at the haunted Clarion?

You can keep up on Cashetta’s adventures and triumphs with her BlogTalkRadio show Monday thru Friday airing at 8 am Vegas time. We owe it to a performer willing to drive all their stuff from Florida to Vegas through the deep south to follow her exciting adventures.

That one hour since I have started listening makes me miss the kaffeeklatch at my former offices that much less. It’s a place where even suburbanite housewives feel cool remembering when we too used to work in the big city with queens.

Cashetta makes her triumphant return to Las Vegas on Friday, May 13th! Message me if you want to come as a big bawdy crowd!

Follow her now!
