The Wyoming Legislature is scheduled to meet soon; let’s examine a few bills due for consideration as of January 5th, 2021. HB 2 School buildings and facilities study: This bill is a $6 million colossal waste of money. Most if not all of the information could be obtained simply by asking the superintendents of each… Read More »The bills so far…
Howdy and Happy New Year! Things are starting to heat up as we near the start of 2021’s general legislative session. As is normal, politicians are willing to use any crisis to accomplish their goals. Wyoming’s legislative leadership wants to hold the first part of the critical 2021 General Session online. We need leadership that… Read More »Whatever happened to cowboying up?
Happy Thanksgiving! This year has been bizarre. Despite that, we all have lots to be thankful for, even if things aren’t turning out as you’d expected or wanted. Take time to pray for those that have COVID, including Governor Mark Gordon. I had this miserable disease. It is not something I’d wish on anyone. If… Read More »Happy Thanksgiving (with a side of politics)
Wyoming, we’re in for continued high spending and high tax next two years with the election of new Republican House Leadership.

While it’s great to see the fighting spirit and independence in a fellow Republican response, Rod Miller… Read More »Riding for the Republican Brand

Last evening as I was trying to sum up this election, David Holland posted a note to his Frontier Republican friends. With David’s permission, I reproduce that engaging… Read More »A Worthy closing Argument

Thus, I work hard, removing all possible sources of bias, fixing errors when discovered, and taking full blame when the mistakes lead to… Read More »If you can’t win the argument, trash talk!
Forgive me, I’m not particularly eager to stoop to such comments, but that one was too funny not to include. Beware who you vote for down-ballot! The Frontier Republicans and their political action committee the Frontier Conservatives are promoting a slate of candidates for precinct-men and precinct-women in Campbell County. I’d advise you not to… Read More »You can’t spell RINO without Frontier
Rep. Sandy Newsome doesn’t like my endorsement of Nina Webber. In reply, she cherry-picked and posted a few of her votes that agreed with well known conservative Rep. Dan Laursen.
