Also, context matters! It helps to remember when discussing politics that not everyone has your knowledge or life experiences. Yesterday, I wrote a post that had been stewing in the back of my mind for about two weeks. It concerned HB-106, the much-maligned school choice bill. School choice, now here’s a pure conservative cause; who… Read More »If you voice your opinion, you’re bound to learn something!

Here are a few thoughts on the latest bills posed on Wyoleg.gov. Please reach out to your legislators and tell them to stop the shenanigans.
