Could there be a miracle in today’s edition of the Joke of the Day! We don’t think so, but you never know!


"It is dangerous for a national candidate to say things that people might remember."

~Eugene McCarthy (1916 - 2005)


   THIS WEEK'S POLL
The Wyoming Commission on Judicial Conduct and Ethics is holding a hearing on a Pinedale Municipal Judge who refused to perform same sex marriages because of her religious beliefs. One possible outcome could be removing the judge from office.   Should elected and public officials be required to fulfill all of the duties of their office, regardless of their religious beliefs, or should they not be required to act in areas they disagree with?



Wyoming has one inmate on death row. The Wyoming Public Defender says the cost of continuing with necessary appeals and court actions will be very high.   Should Wyoming consider dropping the death penalty because the cost in taxpayer dollars is higher than life in prison?





   LAST WEEK'S RESULTS
(WyomingNetwork does NOT represent this as a scientific poll.)
Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump is proposing doing away with birthright citizenship, which is guaranteed under the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. It says that anyone born in the United States is automatically a citizen. Trump says some illegal aliens are coming to the United States to have children, so that the kids will be American citizens.   Should the Constitution be changed to eliminate birthright citizenship?

Yes, eliminate birthright citizenship
50.0%

No, do not eliminate birthright citizenship
50.0%

Wyoming Governor Matt Mead says it may be necessary for the state to use some of its $1.8 billion rainy day fund to cover state budget shortfalls. He says revenue from oil and mineral resources will be down this year, and the money allocated to cities and counties may have to be cut. Using the rainy day fund would prevent that.   Should the state dip into its rainy day fund to cover an expected budget shortfall?

Yes, use the rainy day fund
70.0%

No, cut state budget costs elsewhere
22.9%

No, cut aid to cities and counties
7.1%
