There is a bill making its way through the state legislature that would change the way we register to vote and how we conduct our primaries. HB 1639 was introduced by Rep. Jered Taylor and would force voters to register with a party 23 weeks before the primaries and would close our primaries to any voter who did not want to pick a party. This would be a step in the wrong direction and would limit participation.
This April 22nd is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. The idea for Earth Day was the brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson. He persuaded a Republican congressman, Pete McCloskey, to serve as co-chair.

The rumors during this tumultuous time are swirling thick and fast. The mainstream media, (and even a good deal of what is called "alternative media") is having a hay day doing what they do best - whipping the world into fear and hysteria, enabling their masters (control freaks, every one) to get a better stranglehold on the common people of the world, and push their agendas, which are always about more control (their chief fantasy, drive, and motivation.)
American is going through some rough times but luckily our leaders are on top of things. President Trump says, “So far we have avoided the coronavirus but if it does hit us, we are well prepared and I know that both parties will work together to defeat it.”
Jesus. Can we even begin to comprehend what He has done for us? His death on the cross is one of the most painful ways a person can die, yet He gave His life on the cross for us.
