First Things First
America is multi-cultural. People come here from all over the world and combine to create one nation.
By definition, any person or group that does not accept these tenets is un-American.
What then are we to make of the Kootenai County Republican Party’s February 23, 2021 resolution titled “Equality of Opportunity in Education.”
To begin, the resolution is full of grammatical errors and misspellings. This may be an indication of the authors’ poor education.
The resolution claims allegiance to diversity but it is in fact a thinly disguised racist screed. It condemns theories, policies, and educational procedures that promote diversity.
Fortunately, not all Republicans agree with the extremists who write such resolutions. In fact, a few have the courage to speak up, notably Ben Sasse, Bill Cassidy, Mitt Romney, and Liz Cheney.
Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson also deserves a pat on the back for wanting to breach dams on the Salmon River to restore fisheries.
And finally, Ron Nilson, the local CEO of a heavy equipment manufacturer, spoke out in favor of the school supplemental levy.
Hope springs eternal.

Irish Coffee Recipe
And finally, to add a little fun and in honor of St Patrick’s Day, we are making Irish Coffer to kick off our Central Committee Meeting! Here is Cheri Zao’s recipe.
- Irish whiskey
- Hot coffee
- Whipped cream
- Sugar or brown sugar or maple syrup
- Cinnamon stick
We will take just a few minutes at the beginning of the meeting to whip this up. Alcohol is not necessary but no one’s driving home after our meeting. So, add some if you are inclined. Either way, it is quite yummy!
