Saying "Yes" to Jim Matheson 

Pin It

Mia Love is all about the negatives and the “no’s.” “No” to student loans for Utah college students. How does this help the educational process in Utah? “No” to safety and helping law enforcement protect us by cutting their funding.

But she is for raising the retirement age into the 70s for people to receive Social Security. What makes her think someone in his or her 70s can keep working? She has never experienced the aches and pains of old age.

She thinks the stimulus package is wrong. Try to tell that to an Ohio or Michigan autoworker—who still has a job, who can still feed his family and is keeping the economy going—that the stimulus package is wrong. She is a candidate who is reactionary and reckless in her approach to governing. No way should she represent Utah in Congress.

Jim Matheson, on the other hand, is an experienced leader. He is intelligent and cautious. He thinks things through. He helps Utahns. He knows how to work with Congress. He is exactly the right choice and what Utah needs in a congressman.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
