i like my government without proselytizing thanks…
this just in from missoulian via twitter: jones defeated in school board election! thank you missoula! Pickhardt 45% knapp 38% jones 17% good news for those who believe in freedom!
our good friend linda sent us an e-mail reminding us to vote in the upcoming school board election this tuesday may 6th.
quoting linda’s email:
three people are running for two open seats; Pickhardt, Knapp and Jones. Sometimes we want to vote “none of the above” and sometimes it feels like “the devil or the deep blue sea.” and sometimes we have to vote for someone we are not that fond of in order to prevent someone worse from getting elected. this is one of those times. please see the article on page 8 in this week’s edition of the missoula independent.(closed quotes)
Jones and his friend Tei Nash have no comprehension of the separation of church and state. they answer to a “higher authority” take the bible totally literally and have no tolerance for those they feel are not leading a christian life as they interpret it. please vote for Pickhardt and Knapp. we must do everything we can to get enough votes to keep Jones out of our publicly funded and taxpayer supported schools. the ultra conservatives will be out in force and it is important that we turn out the vote to neutralize this power grab by a tiny segment of our population.
our kids deserve the best education system we can afford free from harrassment and proselytizing by right wing intolerant fanatics. after all- this is not pakistan. it’s the united states of america where we separate our religion (whether it be taliban or christian) from our government affairs.
please pass along linda’s message and ask your friends, family and neighbors to vote this tuesday……it’s important. i for one do not think that missoulians want any more crazy votes by our school board to ban completely harmless films about recycling again. do we?
as a missoulian that vote really embarrassed me…and trust me when i tell you, it takes a lot to embarrass a problembear.
