As if the state taxing us more for our gasoline, Natrona County wants to continue their pork barrel projects by continuing the 1% Sales Tax. And these politicians will claim all of your hard earned tax money goes for great causes. Really? The simple truth is by adding the 1% sales tax just frees up an equal amount of money in the general fund so the politicians can spend even more of your money. Think about this for a moment, how did Natrona County survive before this tax? The citizens did just fine!
Unbelievable! Yet another demonstration of a total lack of leadership and moral compass.
“Rep. Harshman should have scolded all involved for participating in a skit, that if performed by students, would have been cause for suspension or expulsion; as well as not being good stewards with the taxpayers’ money. -As this took place in the tax payer funded NCHS gymnasium, and all faculty was being paid to attend this meeting-.”
$18,000 plus per student per year, and this is what we get. Proof positive that money doesn’t make students smarter, nor teachers and faculty!
With the stroke of their pens and their votes, six members of Casper’s City Council have thwarted the power inherent in the people by trifling with their vote. As of September 2nd, these six elected officials have permanently changed the Procedures for Removal or Censor of Public Officials (Chapter 2.64 of the Casper Municipal Code) such that, “Any City councilman may be removed from office, for cause, by a vote of a two-thirds majority of all members of the City Council…” (City of Casper, Wyoming Ordinance No. 22-14, Section 3, Part B)
Speech before the House of Representatives
by David (Davy) Crockett
Not Yours to Give
One day in the House of Representatives, a bill was taken up appropriating money for the benefit of a widow of a distinguished naval officer. Several beautiful speeches had been made in its support. The Speaker was just about to put the question when Mr. Crockett arose:
“Mr. Speaker — I have as much respect for the memory of the deceased, and as much sympathy for the suffering of the living, if suffering there be, as any man in this house, but we must not permit our respect for the dead or our sympathy for a part of the living to lead us into an act of injustice to the balance of the living. I will not go into an argument to prove that Congress has no power to appropriate this money as an act of charity. Every member upon this floor knows it. We have the right, as individuals, to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right so to appropriate a dollar of the public money. Some eloquent appeals have been made to us upon the ground that it is a debt due the deceased. Mr. Speaker, the deceased lived long after the close of the war; he was in office to the day of his death, and I have never heard that the government was in arrears to him.
“The most malicious attacks on Christianity come from within our public schools and universities. The year 1963 was the beginning of the end for a Godly America. Madelyn Murray O’Hair, a left-wing atheist, with close ties to the American Communist Party, filed a lawsuit against the school board of Baltimore.”
“The National Education Association (NEA) attracts thousands of delegates to its annual convention in Washington, D.C. Topics of conversation and debate generally have nothing to do with education, but instead have to do with things such as socialized health care, global warming, and pro-choice rights. The NEA wants amnesty and free college tuition for illegal-immigrant students. They lobby against English as our official language and advocate diversity in the classroom – ‘diversity’ being the code-word for pro-gay indoctrination. In 2009, teachers even wore buttons that said, ‘Gay rights are civil rights.’”
