    Default Cherry Blossom Festival

    All I want to know is why are my taxpayer dollars paying for this to begin with.

    We are still paying on the 10 trillion dollar deficit Bush left us with and have not got to what Obama has got us into yet.

    Let me tell you something folks... we Nevadan's cringe every time Harry opens his mouth.

    The sad thing is that Elko, NV is a fabulous place to visit, unique in the world. The Ruby Mountains, the Rodeo, the Basque festival... and yes, the Cowboy Poetry Festival.

    Just sad Harry had to say something and hold a whole region, people and history up to ridicule.

    You wouldn't believe how fixed the vote was in Clark County (Las Vegas.) I think, however, just based on his age... God may retire him to the Great Progressive Caucus in the Sky before he gets a chance to run for Senate from NV again.

    But seriously, y'all. Come and visit Nevada. For you outdoors types, the Ruby Mountains are exquisite. For the rest of you... there's Vegas. Thanks to Harry and progressive policies, our official unemployment is approaching 15%. You might even enjoy the Cowboy Poetry Festival.

    Because it is more pleasant than a fishwife festival.

    Absolutely NOT!!!!
    If people who live in the District of Columbia want a festival then they can pay for it.
    THe rest of the country should not be forced to pay for it.
    Those that live in DC do not have to pay for festivals in Winston Salem NC.

    I love Nevada. I hunted Mule deer north of Ely... had a blast. Of course Vegas is fun, but I have not been there in a while. I apply in all of the big game hunts every year and hope to come back soon. just don't want to see Dingy Harry!
