As part of a 5th generation family of Wyomingites I believe it is important to be honest about who we are electing to move our state forward. In 2016, I and many others witnessed and were part of families that experienced massive layoffs. I went to many functions to advocate for the hardworking families of Wyoming all over our state. While doing so, I witnessed people from the Sierra Club and other “green” organizations lie about the coal, oil, and gas industries, painting the positive work of our legacy industries in a dark light. I witnessed people who claimed to be members of these same groups project their cognitive distortions to elected officials in order to sway the making of public policy. Wyoming currently has two candidates in the Republican governor’s race that have affiliated themselves with these very organizations. I don’t want anyone to be fooled about who they are voting for in Wyoming and what that means for families like mine.
Let’s take a short walk down memory lane, to the 2013 era, where we will find that the International Code Council (ICC) is not a new thing to Wyoming and Casper. Read the PDF article (below) and see how the ICC has been infecting all of Wyoming with the help of Mr. Brown. Note this guy is from Gillette. The article is dated when our city manager was City Administrator in Gillette.
Casper City Manager, J (James) Carter Napier is DEEP in this agenda. When he was serving as City Administrator in Gillette (he resigned there so he could work in Casper), in 2015 the ICC Proposed to offer a High School Technical Training Program there. Also, Carter used to serve as intern to the City Manager in Longview, WA. who also has adopted the International Property Maintenance Code (IPMC).

“Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none …” — Thomas Jefferson, “First Inaugural Address,” 1801 —
Last week, I discussed the virtue of military service as it pertains to protecting and defending the values of the United States, and I said that such service was not a “sacrifice” but “a profoundly selfish act rooted in the desire to protect the ideas of our society and culture” instead.
Just because the idea of military service is honorable, however, does not guarantee that the men and women who sign up for it will be deployed for the proper purposes, or on sound principles of conduct.

“To those of you who answered the call of your country and served in its armed forces to bring about the total defeat of the enemy, I extend the heartfelt thanks of a grateful nation.” — President Harry S. Truman, “Military Commendation,” 1945 —
If there’s one thing the radical Left is expert at, it’s manipulating principles and definitions in any way necessary in order to achieve the political objective at hand.
As I was listening to the radio the other day, for instance, an Army National Guard ad touted the virtues of “service” and “self-sacrifice” as motivating factors for getting recruits to sign up. And, a couple of days before that, an acquaintance with knowledge of my prior service (USMC) thanked me for my “sacrifice” as well.

Stunned Americans grapple once again to make sense of the six minute shooting carnage in Parkland, Florida, perpetrated by a “troubled” 19 year old, who had operated under law enforcement’s radar. Stoneman Douglas high school students anticipated this tragic event that has sparked the ensuing debate as how to end these senseless massacres. We’ve seen this rerun before. Once the pain, anger, speculation and viscerally charged comments subside, perhaps a precious few will peer beyond the beguiling symptoms that we’ve seen since Columbine, and explore the underlying roots of this upheaval.
