Born and raised in Arizona. I've lived in Wyoming since 1983, currently in Jackson Hole. A lifetime of working with horses, taking tourists on trails in the high mountains, including scenic summer trips and fall hunting. I owned a gun shop for 5 years. I owned numerous other businesses over the decades. Active in conservative politics. So my "Cowboy Common Sense" draws on a LOT of life experiences.

Jonesy Challenges Teton County Wyoming edict

Official Notice to all Public Officials of Teton County Wyoming and City of Jackson Wyoming Under the auspices of “public health and safety”, Teton County and also the City of Jackson Wyoming promulgated orders which violate the basic rights of citizens.  These basic rights are enumerated and guaranteed in both the USA and Wyoming Constitutions.  “Deprivation of Rights by a Public Official” is a crime under the United States Code. TITLE 18, U.S.C., SECTION 242 Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the…

Global Warming Hype

No doubt some of you think Jonesy is nuts for being a man-caused-global-warming denier or skeptic. Just why does it get warmer and then colder on earth?  Why?  How?  What determines it?  Man’s pollution?  CO2?  Cosmic rays?  The Sun?  The ocean?  Just what? Spend just 10 minutes of your time watching a portion of this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52Mx0_8YEtg Begin watching at minute 28, for about 8 minutes, to minute 36. Particularly pay careful attention beginning at minute 35 through minute 36.  This examines the correlation of rising CO2 and arctic temperatures vs sunspot activity and arctic temperatures.  At minute 28:40 the…

“Universal Background Checks” for guns could trap YOU!

Well presented, from my brother, Ron Lee Jones Jonesy Recognize A Liberal Lie For What It Is By Ron Lee Jones Liberals want “Universal Background Checks” and they are so proud of that idea because they think it is a “common sense” approach that will curb gun violence. This is one of the proposed new laws in Virginia. A universal background check sounds so neutral . . . but only to liberals and the misinformed. Let’s be clear. It’s not neutral. It’s a lie. The liberals and the mainstream news media don’t want you to recognize it as a lie,…

The Supreme Court is NOT the ultimate in what is Constitutional

Joel is a libertarian.  We go the rounds often. Joel, Your statement “Why can’t our Nation agree that what is constitutional is … what the Supreme Court says the Constitution says.” is total nonsense. Do you honestly believe the founding fathers left the entire government of the United States and its laws up to a few lawyers wearing black robes and pounding wooden hammers to declare what they want the Constitution to say?  The Founders wrote the Constitution in plain language, but it is admitted that some things are not exactly spelled out. I challenge you to find anywhere in…

Mormons Demand Reparations!!

Here is an excerpt from the history lesson below, from 1839, which prompted me to write this. “While waiting in Washington, Joseph also grew tired of hearing politicians make grand speeches full of lofty language and empty promises. “There is such an itching disposition to display their oratory on the most trivial occasions and so much etiquette, bowing and scraping, twisting and turning to make a display of their witticism,” he told his brother in a letter. “It seems to us rather a display of folly and show more than substance and gravity.” Government hasn’t changed much since 1839. I,…

Abolish the Electoral College?

There is a big push by some high-profile Democrats to eliminate the Electoral College.  They prefer counting the popular vote as the “fairest” way to elect our President. The key to understanding the Electoral College is that it elects a President of the States, not a President of the collective people as if there were no states. If we do away with the Electoral College then sparsely populated states such as Wyoming, which has less than 600,000 people, lose their representation.  These small-population states would be totally subject to the whims of the huge population centers concentrated in just a…

Open Borders?

Guest author; Ron Lee Jones  (attorney, author, and Jonesy’s baby brother) If you think a Wall or other deterrent to allowing free access to our country is “immoral”, then don’t wait for the government to say “come on in”.  Take action yourself to demonstrate your beliefs. Let’s just all post on Facebook and Twitter that our homes are open to anyone who wants to come stay. That includes the home of every American. We will give our addresses in the post and then we will not lock our doors ever again.  We will also provide benefits.  Anyone who wants to…

Why doesn’t Trump disclose his tax returns?

A flaming Trump-hater asked me this question; Jonesy:  Why do you think Trump hasn’t disclosed his tax returns like he promised he would? Somehow his promise to build the border wall is more important to you and others than his promise to disclose his taxes. Why?????  Tim I replied to the group that Tim is in as follows: I’m only answering Tim because this is a query which is posed often and needs to be answered. Otherwise Tim’s constant finding fault with Trump is not worth responding to. Trump hasn’t released his tax returns because Trump’s taxes are buried beneath…

Fact-checking Trump’s lies using Cowboy Common Sense

President Trump made 8,158 false or misleading claims in his first two years is the headline blazoned across the top of the page. Yep, you are right. Trump lied. He lies all the time. He said the stack of hamburgers for the Clemson Team was “a mile high”. Some reporters from The Washington Post measured them and they came far short of being “a mile high”. Big lie. Huge Trump lie. Impeachable offense. And Trump asked Russia to find the missing 30,000 Hillary emails. That’s proof that Trump was colluding with Russia and that Russia was taking orders from Trump.…

Mueller Witch Hunt? Not so fast!

Bill Barr was nominated by President Trump for Attorney General.  Hearings are now going on in the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Big in the news. I, Jonesy, have had some serious misgivings about Bill Barr being nominated as Attorney General.  I’ve been trying to figure out why Trump would nominate him, especially when I learned that Barr is very good friends with Mueller who is investigating Trump.  Trump calls this a “witch hunt”.  Many of us concur because after almost three years of FBI investigation, including 20 months by the Mueller team, there has been no solid concrete evidence proving that…
