Utah Teachers Should Strike, It Works In Other States

There is no clearer way to say it so I’ll just say it, Utah teachers need to strike. They need to strike now and they need to strike hard. The state won’t listen, the people won’t help them, so they have no choice but to cancel lessons until they all end up with shiny red … Continue reading Utah Teachers Should Strike, It Works In Other States

Abortion Is Protected By The 14th, Someone Remind Rep. Acton Before We Pay For Her Lawsuit

I’m pro death and abortion. At least that’s what a recent “friend” on Facebook said to me when I commented on the Salt Lake County Republican Party’s page after they posted a call to action to support H.B. 136, a bill that would prohibit abortion once at 15 weeks –Utah currently restricts the procedure at … Continue reading Abortion Is Protected By The 14th, Someone Remind Rep. Acton Before We Pay For Her Lawsuit

All Three Propositions Passed, So Why Won’t Lawmakers Respect The Vote?

Tell me if I’m beating a dead horse. You voted in November for Proposition 2, it passed, and then Governor Herbert signed the medical marijuana compromise bill into law on December 3 of the same year –but no one voted for the compromise. I’ll admit I knew it would happen. Hell, the whole state knew … Continue reading All Three Propositions Passed, So Why Won’t Lawmakers Respect The Vote?

Paul Huntsman Is Wrong on Mia Love

The editorial board at The Salt Lake Tribune should rescind its endorsement of Rep. Mia Love immediately.  Paul Huntsman, the owner of the newspaper and part of that staff, was naïve in his recent interview on the newspaper's podcast, Trib Talk.  He doesn't see the clear and present danger we face today if Love is … Continue reading Paul Huntsman Is Wrong on Mia Love

Conservatism Based On Cruelty Is Not What I Signed Up For

Nearly 20 years ago this politically disinterested European met and fell in love with a young Republican political scientist from Idaho fresh from her time working in a congress ran by Newt Gingrich.  This was my introduction to American conservatives and their political ideology. I learned about compassionate conservatism orthodoxy, how if we just built … Continue reading Conservatism Based On Cruelty Is Not What I Signed Up For

End Gerrymandering – Vote Yes On Prop 4

“My vote doesn’t matter because I’m in Utah.” If you’ve said this, it’s time to shut up and vote. We’ve all said it at one time or another. But guess what? You’re wrong this time. One item on the ballot can change the future of our elections COMPLETELY. We’re voting on three tax questions, when … Continue reading End Gerrymandering – Vote Yes On Prop 4

Who Does Mia Love Serve? The People Or Sheldon Adelson?

Every single American knows that our campaign finance laws create legalized bribery, a quid pro quo that leaves our representatives totally beholden to people who ARE NOT their constituents -but absolutely their masters. Who are these masters? Now here's a fella by the name of Sheldon Adelson. He's a billionaire and big backer of President … Continue reading Who Does Mia Love Serve? The People Or Sheldon Adelson?

Out of State, Out of Touch, & Out of Time

Representative Mia Love of Utah’s fourth district has a hometown problem and is running out of time to turn it around. Love ran on bringing positive change to DC but as with so many before her she has become part of the problem. Her campaign funding e-mails have been viciously derogatory of the Democratic Party … Continue reading Out of State, Out of Touch, & Out of Time

Liars Say They’ll Pass Medical Marijuana -Sounds Like A Lie

Only a sucker would believe that lawmakers will do something to address medical marijuana if Proposition 2 fails or barely squeaks by on Election Day.  Just a couple days ago a “compromise” was reached between members of the state legislature, the LDS Church, and Libertas but there is absolutely nothing guaranteeing that anything will be … Continue reading Liars Say They’ll Pass Medical Marijuana -Sounds Like A Lie
