Koopman and Jore Spell Education Horror

There have been several posts about the Montana House Republicans heavy handed bullying tactics in anticipation of the upcomming legislative session.

I am most concerned with at the moment is that our House Education Committee lacks Montana values due to Republican Party's blowhard decision to appoint Rick Jore, to the position of committee chair. Not content to settle for giving Montanan's a kick in the b***s, House Speaker Scott Sales decided to follow up by giving the Vice Chair appointment to kooked out Koopman who does not appear to be any saner than the preacher I heard screaming on the radio that "SANTA IS SATAN! WAKE UP AMERICA! SANTA IS SATAN". Really not somebody we want in charge of our children's education . Really not.

Fortunately LaNette Diaz and the great folks at Forward Montana have taken it upon themselves to put up this online petition asking Speaker Sales to appoint new education committee leadership. Moorcat takes it a few steps further, and I am going to remind everybody that our representatives are members of our own communities who need to respond to us.

Give them a call, send them a postcard, write to your local paper or call your local talk show asking them to apply pressure now when it would do the most good. Heck, have a get-together with your neighbors and invite your Rep over to hear your concerns.

Most of all, pay attention and take an appropriate action.
