Nuts to the Legislature

Who's sending these nuts to the Legislature? I can't believe it's Bozeman, home of one of the major units of the university system. Now we've got Roger Koopman, who is obviously somewhere out in lala land with the bills he's put in having to do with teaching "intelligent" design. For some reason, people from his position seem to think that there is a controversy over the concept of evolution. Roger, I've got news for you: There is no controversy over evolution in the scientific area. The "controversy" over evolution exists only in the minds of those who place their religious beliefs ahead of scientific thinking. So called "creation science" is an oxymoron. It is not science by any stretch of the imagination.

And then we also have Joe Balyeat (sp?) who is taking off on the Montana Supreme Court for doing its part in the three-part system of government we have in this country. I used to think Montana had a good education system, but it's beginning to look a lot as if I was wrong. A good education system wouldn't have created these kind of thinkers. Where does the Republican Party come up with its nuts?

The religious right has systematically gained power within Republican ranks since about 1964. Yes, the Democratic party is, in a very general sense, better.

I will freely admit that there are some Republicans that are nut cases. Honest Democrats would have to admit that there are kooks on that side of the aisle also- right David?

Oh let's be honest, there are nuts in every party - some of them even have the title of "Reverend"...

I'm not suprised that David would name only center-right democrats. No liberal democrats are nuts David? I was hoping for intellectual honesty. Maybe my hopes were too high. I agree with the "reverend" comment also.

Sorry, guys, I miss seeing and hearing from you, too. But it's tax season and I'm busy. Almost too busy to think although there are a few out there who come to mind who might say that's nothing new.

Glad to hear that you're AOK - especially after my e-mail to you bounced back to me. I was glad to get our taxes done - especially since ours are due on the 1st of March... Hope to hear from you by April 15th!

Great work on your blog - it was very enlightening. You've got a lot of useful info on there about tax preparation so I've bookmarked your site so I don't lose it. I'm doing a lot of research on tax preparation exposed and have just started a new blog - I'd really appreciate your comments
