Presidential candidates will gather at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where they’ll face questions about their commitment to protecting public services and the working men and women who dedicate their lives to their communities.

And indigenous people are in the way.

On our local low power leftist radio station, they put on a program called Nuclear Hot Seat.

Driving around since can’t get over the air unless in a car which serves as a good antenna, there was a program about radioactive waste in NM. On native land.
