“Using a proven two-prong strategy, WyGO – (Wyoming Gun Owners Association) lobbying before and during the legislative session and WyGO-PAC exposing the anti-gun politicians during the election cycle — WyGO PAC gives citizens of Wyoming a very powerful way to defend their gun rights without any risk of having their support handed over to politicians who treat the Second Amendment with contempt.”

Rita Meyer: Governor or beached bass?

May 20, 2010

Rita Meyer recently changed her stance on Obamacare. Originally she stated that Freudenthal is doing the right thing by not joining other states in a lawsuit against the federal health-care mandate.

In the recent weeks we have seen, Colin Simpson and Matt Mead, possible early picks for Governor by the Democrats, Rita Meyer may also be following the same path.

Agreeing with Governor Freudenthal, Meyer stated:

“the Governor has taken a very measured approach, I think it’s the right approach, It’s the approach I would take”

The Flip-Flop…

Possibly in a move to be politically expedient Meyer said she would:

“Direct the state attorney to join in the fight”.

For the record this isn’t the first time Rita Meyer changed her mind, she originally stated to an audience the following–
“The Wyoming National Guard could be used to protect state residents from “inevitable federal abuse.”

The very next day, Meyer retracted her original statement, saying – “it would be an inappropriate use of the National Guard”.

Many individuals believe since we see both Congress and the current administration in a full-fledged power grab, it certainly doesn’t help Myers to continually change on her positions.

Putting Myers even further behind are statements like this where Meyer said “the federal government has a role in feeding school children”, this could be where she has a hard time with state rights issues, since her definition of the proper role of government is mixed.

Bringing us to this question, can a candidate truly take to heart a fight against federal intrusion on issues such as health-care, and at the same time rally for a “free lunch” from the same federal government?

At this point in the game it appears that Meyer, no matter what the issue or how she answers, it must be checked at a later date to see if she has “changed her mind”.

This could make Rita Meyer untrustworthy in the eyes of many conservative voters.


Matt Mead for Governor, Star Tribunes latest praise spells caution

May 19, 2010

Matt Mead for Governor

From a Casper Star Tribune opinion – Mead could follow in Freudenthal’s footsteps :

“In a crowded GOP gubernatorial primary, Matt Mead is the candidate who most reminds us of the states current Democratic governor, Dave Freudenthal”

It seems that the Casper Star Tribune has named their pick for Governor. I must say if you’re looking for a liberal leaning candidate you might have to agree with them.

As a former U.S. Attorney, Mead would be the most likely candidate to side with the Feds, JUST LIKE Dave Freudenthal.

The Star-Tribune goes on to praise Matt Mead even lifting him up to Freudenthal’s pedestal, on more than one occasion.

The Red Flag – when the most liberal, anti-gun rag in the state virtually endorses Mead, I believe it sends a strong message to the voters, here it comes…

CAUTION! – Matt Mead another Freudenthal for Governor!!!

The Casper Star Tribune also goes on to say –“Mead is well qualified for the job. In addition to serving as a federal prosecutor, where he had to make decisions that he noted involved ‘life, liberty and property’”.

On this point Mead is right, “he was involved with such decisions”, but what Mead and the Trib fail to tell you is, Matt Mead was on the WRONG SIDE of the decisions. Mead actually fought against gun rights and state sovereignty in one flailing swoop.

When I questioned Mead on this, all he had to say was…

“You should see my gun collection”…and …I was just doing my job”.

Neither of which qualifies Mead to be at the helm of the Independent State of Wyoming.

Remember like Mead the Nazi soldiers also “had gun collections” and claimed “they were also just doing their job” while throwing corpses in the trenches.

FACT – When given a choice to protect the state of Wyoming or take the money and fight AGAINST IT, Mead took the money as shown in the case Wyoming vs. BATF. Honestly, the group I hang with would rather die than fight for the gungrabbers.

Despite the truth of the court case which is on the Brady Anti-Gun Campaign web-site, Mead has spoke out saying- “Do not to believe anything on the internet”. Also at events in Sheridan and Cheyenne, Mead stated that “Some blogger is spreading lies”. Mead also said that this blogger (apparently me) wouldn’t meet with him, as if we never spoke with each other. Here’s the rub: it is certainly disingenuous of Mead since we have had two phone conversations about his Venomously Anti-Gun Record.

Further, Meads Campaign Manager Bill Novotny “got in my face” at an event in Cheyenne saying to me – “you must work for someone”, he was apparently attempting to stifle me but, these establishment style tactics are nothing more than a case of “we can’t dispute the message, so let’s kill the messenger”.

More rhetoric comes as if to say Mead isn’t pandering to the Democrats, Novotny said “he hasn’t heard of any Democrats supporting Mead”, really! Everyone else knows except Novotny, Mead’s Campaign Manager?

Again just “POLITICS AS USUAL” coming out of the Mead Campaign.

Is this what Wyoming needs, a Governor that reminds us of Freudenthal? I don’t think so.

Wyoming10A Project — Sheridan Kickoff Event

January 18, 2010

The Tenth Amendment protects the states from federal oppression, or at least it is supposed to.

Wyoming10A Project — Sheridan Kickoff Event
In Sheridan – Downtown Area

Sheridan Senior Center
211 Smith Street
Date: Saturday, January 23rd
Time: 3:00pm

We have been told that all we can do is enact sovereignty “resolutions” to push back at an over reaching central government. That doing any more will be a sign of waging war.

In light of the fact that these House Joint Resolutions will do absolutely nothing and many of the same legislators that will support such a resolution actually voted “yes” to a over reaching federal mandate called Real ID. Proving that these politicians are bought and paid for by federal money. These same politicians want us to believe that the following words are without meaning!  I believe we can come to an entirely different conclusion.

From the Declaration of Declaration of Independence– July 4, 1776
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

From the Wyoming Constitution– September 30, 1889

97-1-001. Power inherent in the people.
All power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their peace, safety and happiness; for the advancement of these ends they have at all times an inalienable and indefeasible right to alter, reform or abolish the government in such manner as they may think proper.

97-1-007. No absolute, arbitrary power.
Absolute, arbitrary power over the lives, liberty and property of freemen exists nowhere in a republic, not even in the largest majority.

The truth is — All power belongs to “we the people” and this power is inseparable from us, the government is a republic founded on the authority of the governed (us) and we are to remain free from absolute, arbitrary power over our lives, liberty and property. Government is instituted for our own peace, safety and happiness. Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it.

Tea Time Is Over!  —  it is up to us to alter the course we are on and put a stop to the Kingship Rule of the government.

If you agree, join me and others at the Wyoming10A Kick Off in Sheridan, see you there!

King Freudenthal?

January 18, 2010

I find it nothing less than amazing when big government socialist like Bill Ritter smell the tar and see the feathers that a scant hundred miles north our own Governor pushes a similar agenda based in political correctness and leftest boot licking….

Read on;

Governor Freudenthal recently stated about Federal tax on carbon–

“There is some number out there, that you need to use to monetize carbon, to affect behavior”.

The most obvious from this statement is that Freudenthal fully supports the Washington D.C. tax and control agenda known as “Cap and Trade”.

The thought that that Wyoming residents need to have their ‘behavior’ affected by taxing, proves that Freudenthal has become part of the elite class and not one of us.

This isn’t the first time Freudenthal has used this “affect behavior” language he also did so here — Wyoming’s Governor Freudenthal to launch a persuasive building code campaign.

Since we pay taxes on purchases, income, property, vehicles, among other things, further tax and control of our lives by either the state of federal government is out of order.

Sorry King Freudenthal, in case you haven’t read the Constitution please go back and review the Magna Carter, a document in which our constitution has its roots, but it was directed at Royal Kingship. Particularly this – NO Freeman shall be taken or imprisoned, or be disseised of his Freehold, or Liberties, or free Customs, or be outlawed, or exiled, or any other wise destroyed;.

We live in the climate of this state by choice and by doing so, pay enough in heating costs, we don’t need a “tax” to affect our behavior or worst to be destroyed by taxation. We do need to affect your behavior as well as the rest of the politician of this state that have grown our government to record levels for a population of just 530,000 thousand.

On this day, we do hereby declare by this informal charter that; NO freeman be further imposed upon by frivolous taxation and control over our lives. King Freudenthal it is time that you are removed from your throne forever and always.

Matt Mead rejected as governor: Wyoming does the right thing

November 21, 2009

When it comes to Governors never back an attorney for the office. To be blunt, they kiss butt way too much. Wyoming Gun Owners points out the obvious with a very informative piece that outlines the threat to states rights, as well as the federal mandate based in mysandry and ex post facto law.

While Wyoming did go a long way toward correcting a fundamentally flawed law it did not go nearly far enough. Nor do I see any way that the law that was passed could, or would, be recognized by other states. Or that a person that had been convicted in another state could use Wyoming residency to have their rights restored in Wyoming. Read on, and I hope that Wyoming Gun Owners start allowing comments at some point. At least from dues paying members such as myself.

By Anthony Bouchard
The headline should read “Gun owners beware of formers U.S Attorneys”. But it’s best that you decide…

In 2004, The Sovereign State of Wyoming enacted legislation that established a procedure to expunge misdemeanor convictions “for the purposes of restoring any firearm rights lost”.

This was specifically to aid Wyoming citizens in restoring gun rights if they had a misdemeanor such as domestic violence on their record. The NRA backed Lautenberg legislation bans gun ownership and use of guns or ammunition by individuals convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence. Wyoming legislators recognized there was nothing to protect individuals that were erroneously convicted.
