UTAH. The most uneducated state in the Union. The most republican state in the
union. Coincedence?? In utah they put their heads in the sand, and say "god
will save us" Herbert, is a typical republican, a enegy solutions hack, who
only cares about money. Not education, pollution, healthcare. He says the state
run healthcare system he touts, is a model for america. DUH! It insures 7,000
people. There are a few more Gov, that need insurance. Go stick your head in the
sand, like the rest of your crowd.
Governor Herbert is doing the things that motivated me to vote for him, so I
have no problem.I'm particularly grateful for his support of
the fossil fuel industry. If it weren't for fossil fuels, we would still be
burning wood to stay warm. What would that do to air quality?A lot
is said about switching to renewables like wind and solar. Unfortunately,
they're not economically viable. Are you willing to cut your standard of
living by an order of magnitude to get cleaner air for a couple of weeks a year?
Because that's the cost of solar and wind.The real answer is
nuclear power, both in terms of cost as well as cleaning up the environment - no
emissions, and we could use high-level nuclear "waste" as fuel for

about Utah mentioned.I tried "Worst air in the U.S." -
Nothing in Utah made the list.I tried "Oil Gas Political
Donations" - Couldn't find Herbert's name anywhere.Any
Happy valley,is 49.2% a majority yet?I don't think soSo much for your credibility.
The air quality is poor because we want it that way. If not, we would be willing
to be taxed for less driving, fewer jobs or more restrictions. Don't blame
politicians for doing what we elect them to do.

in your mind) he hasn't been working on anything.@jotab
anything that isn't earning money for private business regardless of
health, safety, or rules is a liberal agenda.
When did wanting to have cleaner air than Beijing mean being on the liberal
I'm curious if Brock shells out the extra money each month to pay for
renewable electricity, or if he just uses the cheaper coal and gas produced
electricity.I'm curious if Brock has any kids in school, if he
ever had any, or if his kids are now out of school and he no longer wants to pay
for public schools. Not wanting to pay for public school because he has no kids
in school seems awfully selfish to me. When we moved from the
Seattle area here our property taxes declined by about 1/3, even though our
house doubled in size. Schools are supported mostly by property taxes, and our
property taxes here are NOTHING compared to a lot of places in mostly blue
states. some places in NY and MA have $15-20k per year property taxes on a
"middle class" home. Don't bawl to me about our school-supporting
In other words, he hasn't been working on the liberal agenda.Most of Utahans are okay with that. That is why didn't elect a
liberal.To quote you liberals, "Your guy lost. Our guy won. Get
Joe, it's called Google. You may want to come out of your cave and turn off
your AM radio and use Google sometime. It's a brilliant tool which can help
you find facts and not just rhetoric which is the #1 thing spewed from AM radio
Joe, there are plenty of previous news articles and other sources easily
available with the click of a mouse that can help you out.
Real Maverick: "dispel the rhetoric"??? Are you serious??This letter was full of rhetoric! Every point was nothing but rhetoric. I
looked at it very hard to try and find one of those "facts" that you
refer to. Could you help me out there?
Great letter!It's amazing what a few facts can do to dispel the
