Dear Idaho Legislature:

Dear Idaho Legislature:

Anything is possible if you want to do it. If you had parents like mine, you’ve heard that before growing up. More importantly, you’ve proven in the past that, seemingly if motivated by certain industries, you can move fast. (see Idaho Agricultural Security Act 2014) Yet, through years ranging from asking nicely, begging, crying, pleading,…MORE

I Love Mike Kasper…But Sometimes He’s Just…Wrong

I Love Mike Kasper…But Sometimes He’s Just…Wrong

While some may celebrate Meridian’s dedication to automotive safety by passing a “Hands Free Ordinance”, I do not. Driving any automobile is dangerous. Distractions are abound. Be it inside or outside the car. Screaming kids, eating, makeup application, shaving, pets, and your radio (not us, everyone else) to name a few from the inside. Then…MORE

Mom’s deviled eggs, and other Independence Day memories

Mom’s deviled eggs, and other Independence Day memories

My parents did a wonderful job of exposing me to as much art and culture as possible growing up. We didn’t picnic often, but when we did, we did it in style. Just a simple family of 3, Mom Dad and me, would go to Blossom Music Center every July 4th to see the Cleveland…MORE

I pitched for Bill Buckner and Steve Garvey

I pitched for Bill Buckner and Steve Garvey

June 14th, 2014. The Boise Hawks commonly have people throw out the first pitch. Dignitaries, business leaders, and when they can’t get a hold of anyone important, afternoon talk show hosts. It was dollar hot dog night. The Hawks were on that night. Hitting everything. Fielding was perfect. It was a great night at the…MORE

The “guns-in-school” issue fix is simple

The “guns-in-school” issue fix is simple

Let me clarify. This idea does not stop bullying, fix mental health issues, address pharmaceutical issues, increase morality, solve the never ending adolescent issues of hormones, heartbreak, jealousy or self- confidence. It only solves one issue. It also does not solve the issue of crimes that may occur in parking lots, sidewalks, movie theaters, night…MORE

Read the Mueller report for yourself HERE!

Read the Mueller report for yourself HERE!

Yes, its 448 pages long. Yes, It’s redacted. Weekend reading for those of you avid readers. For those of you worried about context, media bias, partisan politics, etc. Use your own eyes! While I pride myself on my opinion as does Kasper, Chris, Rush, Shapiro, Levin, Savage, and everyone else over the air, internet, neighbor,…MORE

I love you Mom!

I love you Mom!

In writing this, I realize my Mom has had an amazing journey. Growing up in the 30’s & 40’s, and wanting to become a Catholic nun. Changing her mind, finding herself wanting a family and career. Meeting my Dad. Dating him from 1962 to 1972. Marrying my Dad. Having me. Going to nursing school. Getting her…MORE

Do we start at “0” or “1”?

Do we start at “0” or “1”?

“Marine Bob” is a listener who emails me just about every day. He’s conservative and a Vietnam veteran who lost an eye there fifty years ago. He pumps iron every day, has a wide variety of knowledge and interests and can pass for younger than his actual age. Last week he wrote me with a…

Wikipedia has lots of information available, but if you only have 6 minutes, watch “U.S. and Iran’s rocky history explained.” Click the…
