Cheyenne’s “Economic Development Officer” Position Needs the Axe

By Bradley Harrington

“Growth requires four ingredients: Domestic private investment, sound money, private property and free markets.” — Mark Thorton, “The Ingredients of Economic Growth,” 2014 —

Since we’ve been discussing the “economic development” racket for the last few rants, what better place to land next than the City of Cheyenne’s own schemes in this arena?

And, trust me, when it comes to “economic development” and just how you should be taking care of your property, the city’s got plenty of schemes up its sleeves. read more

Senator Braveheart

By Dan Brophy

Wyoming: the least populated state, where cattle and pronghorn outnumber people. Where two bigoted cowboys murdered Matthew Shepard in 1998 because they hated homosexuals. Except that Shepard, involved in the meth trade, was murdered by his bisexual lover and another man (hardly cowboys) who were part of the local drug culture. The media proliferated its lie so effectively that Shepard is still portrayed as a martyr. His remains are now interred in the National Cathedral in Washington. The lie persists. read more

Could A Genuine Conservative Vote for Democrat Throne?

Before my Conservative friends call for my lynching, hear me out before you conclude the cheese has slipped off my cracker.

One can likely hear Rex Rammell screeching in the background, “What about me?” The Rock Springs Constitutionalist veterinarian has a valid argument. Despite his pugnacious style, his stance on Wyoming controlling federal lands, and unshakeable pro-life position, is attractive to many liberty minded voters. Before switching to the Constitutional Party, he alleged that the Republican Party was planning to undermine its own nominee, Mark Gordon. State GOP Party chairman was quoted by the CST, “I don’t have any knowledge of it,” he said. “The Party is going to stand by the primary winners. Period.” In a recent interview with Glen Woods on KGAB radio, Rammell explained his rationale for switching to the Constitutional Party, and maintains that he could launch a strong run against Gordon. If the election was based on swagger, he’d be a shoo-in. Many conservative like his ideas, but are leery of his “bull-in-a-China shop” style. read more

House District 57, You Snooze You Lose

Time and again many talk about, and complain, that the GOP in Wyoming cannot get their act together, especially just before the Primary. That too many candidates run, for instance, for governor. This is the same for other political positions such as precinct committee members, city and county seats, and state house and senate positions.

One need only ask, “how can this be”, and you are sure to get several reasons why. Well, it’s not too hard to imagine that democrats register as republicans and run for local political positions. Thus the outcome is easy to see that these chameleons do not, will not, and never will subscribe to the GOP platform. And is precisely why they register as republicans. And this is why a red state like Wyoming moves to the Left and will not agree on basic things like our Bill of Rights. read more

Wyoming Governor’s Race – Harriet Hageman

Wyoming Governor’s Race – an objective look at the main candidates. (LAST ARTICLE OF FOUR)

This article is last of four, my attempt to look at each of the main candidates as objectively as I can. As I said in the first email, my wife and I are dedicated supporters of Harriet Hageman. Our personal regard for her does not enter into our evaluation of her opponents’ candidacies or hers. We look at record and policy, leaving out personal feelings.

After looking fairly, we conclude that there is no choice other than Harriet. read more
