Check out their websites to enrich your speaking and listening skills. Kim directs listeners to her website for new op-eds. Allen Thomas, frequent guest and columnist for the show, has a new op-ed, Court Complacency. This is an important piece in light of Supreme Court Justice Breyer stepping down after this term. Also, Patti Kurgan, researcher for the show, has a new op-ed, Colorado was the First Abortion State, Even Before Roe v. Wade. Patti examines Colorado’s history in the abortion debate, citing that Colorado was the first state to legalize abortions. She also reports on organizations that help those who are in need of healing.

To read the details and voice your concern visit the website. Bill of the Day, SB22-033 Retail Liquor Store Minimally Processed Food, is discussed with the obvious question, Why do we need this? Now government is getting involved in food supply by specifying percentages of food by classification that can be sold in specific stores. All regulations regarding food sales at liquor stores should be rescinded. Johns Hopkins University offers a free class for adults to become “Vaccine Ambassadors.” Or should we say vaccine enforcement officers?

Kim and Terri open the lines to fellow Toastmasters members for their thoughts regarding “Table Topics:” protecting individual rights, how to reclaim our founding principles, understanding what motivates people and how to navigate the federal bureaucracy. Anthony Hartsook, candidate for HD 44, begins with a discussion stating we must have courageous leaders with integrity, like George Washington, that inspires others to follow; division and hatred does not work as seen with the present administration. Other comments from club members include: there is one agency that stands out amongst the rest that affects every person and every agency, staff and politicians, and that is the IRS, and until the IRS is restructured nothing will change; we must support self-government and dissolve “democracy” that benefits the interest of the politically corrupt and; we must improve our message to inspire, not scare, by being grounded in truth, grounded in rational ideas, and have beauty in our spiritual humanity.
