Blog: Rooftops in the Ranches and their corresponding benefits

I am writing this blog as a response to a complaint from Mark Hansen. He is frustrated the that Ranches as the UTA Express Bus Stop and the city center does not have that 'bonus.'



Mark, I understand your frustration.



However, let me point out a couple of issues. Eagle Mountain would never have gotten this type of bus service without the population density of the Ranches. In fact, if it weren't for the population density of the Ranches, neither EM nor Saratoga Springs would… Continue

Thomas Jefferson Quotes

Updated on 2/14/2009:



In light of the present financial crisis, it's interesting to read what Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:



Banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the… Continue

Blog: UTA Bus Stops in Eagle Mountain and Saratoga Springs





While I do think that there are "more accessible" chapels in Saratoga Springs and Eagle Mountain, I am very happy that the bus routes and bus stops have been announced. The bus stops are at LDS meetinghouse in Eagle Mountain, 7746 N. Sparrowhawk Way, and an LDS meetinghouse in Saratoga Springs, 2101 N. Providence Drive. The locations of the UTAH Announced bus stops are marked in these Google Maps:…

Blog: The most unpatriotic cabinet in history

VP Joe Biden set the bar very high when he described the new litmus test for being patriotic. He said “it is now time to be patriotic by paying your taxes.” So, in order to be patriotic you must pay your taxes. In addition to loving, defending, being willing to die for your county, and obeying the laws of the land, in order to be patriotic, you must also pay your taxes.



You must do it willingly and enthusiastically, or you are just not patriotic.



Unfortunately for the… Continue

Blog: For the children … to have to pay back

"For the children"



We have heard over and over again that the justification for passing some liberal cause big government program is “for the children.” How could anyone oppose a government program that is “for the children?” No one in their right mind could oppose a new government program “for the children.”



It seems that the so called stimulus program, which is really a liberal government spending program. is also “for the children”. Well, sort of.



The reason… Continue

The nationally-based Brady Campaign is giving Utah a four out of 100 possible points on its latest scorecard.



Many might argue such a score is a good thing. But Dee Rowland of the Utah Gun Violence Prevention Center does not.

Despite the availability of a vaccine, parents throughout the country, and here in Utah, are intentionally exposing their kids to the chickenpox virus at "parties" or "playdates" hoping their children will build up an immunity the old-fashioned way.
