Right-winged, Left-minded Governors

Talking Utah… You have heard me comment on Utah’s recently inaugurated Governors Jon Huntsman.  And you know that I stand pretty much on the far right. Well, it seems that Utah has a long history of such Governors.  Before Huntsman was the first female Governor of Utah, Olene Walker.  While she served an honorable term, she also was rather liberal, especially considering that she is a Republican.  She has vetoed two conservative-based bills.  And all indications are that she is the puppet of the Utah Education Association (our teacher’s union). But it goes further than just these past to governors. 

Children Left Behind

I ‘m mad at Bush, again.  Granted, I am one of those right wing nuts, who doesn’t like anything moderate to liberal.  But this time he has gone too far. First, I am not a fan of the “No Child Left Behind” education program that Bush has set in place.  It’s intentions are good, as are most liberal/moderate government programs, but its roots are evil. Small government is the key.  Federal control of our lives leads to fewer freedoms, and our freedoms are essential to our economy and our lives. So, when the Federal Government comes in and starts mandating

However, I am afraid

Bush 41 + Clinton 42 = 0

I am a Bush supporter.  What else can I be?  I’m from Utah.  I’m a Mormon.  We voted Bush in by a landslide (and more). Right now however, I am upset at Bush.  I think that he is politicizing this situation in Southeast Asia. Recently, Bush announced that George H. W. Bush and William J. Clinton would be working together to encourage people to donate money to relief agencies to help with the effects of the tsunami.  And while he said that he believes that the good will of people should be the greatest contributor of money (over the federal

Have a Sober New Years

What do you remember from your New Years’ Parties of the past? Do you remember who you were with? Do you remember who (or if) you kissed someone to ring in the new year? I can. Well, Sort of. As I get older, I seem to forget. But I can honestly say that the day after each new year, I remeber what I did the night before. Why? Because I am a teatottler. That’s right. I have never tasted an alcoholic beverage in my entire life. I am STONE COLD SOBER. Actually, I just don’t get the drunk thing. What
