Photos from Summertime Picnic at Nolan Park in Eagle Mountain

The reason that I started doing these summertime picnics is so we as republicans can visit with each other and get to know each other better.  Since caucus nights are so hectic and rushed there is not a lot of time to visit with fellow Republicans.

Joylynn Lincoln who is running for State…

Thoughts and observations on Daylight Savings Time

Daylight Saving Time creates all kinds of problems and doesn’t fulfill its objectives. In this regard it is just like ObamaCare and many other big government programs. All sorts of promises were made to get it passed, and the law delivers on none of them. The costs are higher than projected and the problems are not solved, and yet there are still people that defend it ferociously.



Daylight Savings Time is similar to having a blanket on your bed that is too short and doesn’t…

Possible World Record in a Chevy Volt:82.2 miles of battery only range

82.2 miles of range on a single charge (and no gasoline) in my 2014 Chevy Volt. My Volt is still fairly new with just over 6,000 miles on the odometer.

 

I will write more about my attempt at the world record, but for now I would like to submit these 2 photos and ask my peers to…

Happy Independence Day and 4th of July!

Today we celebrate the independence and founding of our country. I wish you a happy Independence Day and 4th of July!



This past week the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the religious freedom enshrined in the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights. Even before the freedoms of speech and press and assembly the guarantees of the free exercise of religion is established:



“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise…

My ungiven Soap Box Rant on Greg Graves

What is the best way to fairly tax electric vehicles for their use of Utah's roads?

Ok, I need your thoughts and your help. I am in the state legislature in Utah and am on the Transportation Committee. I have been assigned to look at how to fairly and appropriately tax electric vehicles so that they (us) are paying for their use of the roads but not to the point that it becomes a deterrent to the adoption of electric vehicles.

 

Some background: I love my Chevy Volt and it has been discussed positively by Utah legislators and staff both during the legislative…

Correcting the lies in the SLTrib about my Chevrolet Volt

Just Barack Obama, the writers at the SLTrib lie at every opportunity. I think that is the primary reason that their newspaper is in a business death spiral. But there are still a few people that believe what they read in the Trib, so I will correct the record for those few remaining subscribers of the Trib.

But first I wanted to post one of my favorite YouTube videos that makes my point about Barack Obama.…

Results of support for Advocacy Groups by the voters in Saratoga Springs and Eagle Mountain

I recently conducted a survey of the voters in Saratoga Springs and Eagle Mountain to see which advocacy groups they agree with and support. This was an interesting follow up to the the Scorecard that I posted that showed how the various advocacy groups rated my votes in the 2014 Legislative Session. This was a more complicated and time consuming survey that I usually…

Life experiences from Ground Zero of the Civil Rights Era

I can easily support the Mission Statement of the NAACP

The common question that I have received since I posted my apology is "what caused you to change your mind?" We the answer is simple: I read the Mission Statement of the NAACP. I learned something and hope to share what I have learned with others.



In several of the interviews that I had, I said I could support them if they were the National Association for the Advancement of ALL People. Well guess what? That is…

My public apology for my insenstive tweets.

I need to publicly apologize for my bad joke about Don Sterling and the NAACP. My joke was in poor taste and insensitive to others.  I have learned a lot in the past few days. The NAACP is not a racist organization. My logic was flawed.

 

For the record, I grew up at Ground Zero of the Civil Rights Era. I grew up in a family and was taught by parents to love all people. I have been taught much and have a great amount of love and respect for my teachers, classmates, coaches,…
