Utah Legislatures Oppose Immigration Act

I recently received this press release from Representative Carl Wimmer of District 52. He asked me to share it with my readers and to let you know that several other representatives have endorsed this release. So, I will post it here for your thoughts, and of course, I have to share some of my thoughts. Key Utah Legislators oppose The Border Security and Immigration Reform Act of 2007   As Legislators in the Utah House of Representatives we stand together to call upon our Senate and Congressional delegation to oppose the Border Security and Immigration Reform Act which the senate

Happy Holidays

I said it. “Happy Holidays.” There now all the Christian organizations can boycott this site. Well, they probably already have because it is a site with LDS discussion.

I told him that we finally made the decision to home school because there was way too many problems with the school.  The first year we homeschooled, I talked with one of the 1st grade teachers, and she told me that she had at least 2 kids in her class that has sexual issues.
