Focus?

An internal debate I'm mulling over: You might know, I'm an avid Cleveland Indians fan. Do I fly to San Francisco for two games against the Giants or do I drive to Seattle for a three game series agains the Mariners? Both parks have great scenery and great food.   … these are the things…MORE

Missing!

Enough about the missing plane! No one KNOWS what happened. No one KNOWS where it is. A plane took off, then it disappeared. They're looking. It's a big world. Be patient, tune out anyone who wasn’t there or who didn't see what happened. MORE

Doing The Right Thing

Should the state fine a business if they refuse a customer upon religious beliefs? No. Should anyone be forced to do something they'd consider harmful? No. Should non-emergency medical treatment be delayed or denied to a patient based upon the caregivers religious beliefs? No. Should that professional face scrutiny regarding their decision to deny or…MORE

“Pop” Goes The World

I'm normally not a subscriber to the idea of: "If we paid as much attention to (insert pop culture topic) as we did to (insert serious news topic), then we'd be better off as a society. But I've heard plenty, infact, too much about Richard Sherman and Justin Beiber. Why are these topics being covered…MORE

The Tax Man

Just found out today that the state of Idaho says that it will take 7 weeks to process your refund if you file ELECTRONICALLY! If you owe the state money, you still have to pay on time. All this technology has gotten us nowhere. Idaho Tax Commission, poor excuse!MORE

What Is Enough?

I have a rule: Off air means off record. That being said, I had an interesting discussion with someone regarding why marijuana should remain illegal for recreational use in Idaho. Their simple reasoning, which I've heard before, "We can't handle the legal drugs we have now. Why introduce another?" Makes sense to a point. People…MORE

I Can’t Drive 70!

I might be off a few years on the benchmark age, but I do believe seniors should go through a few more tests starting every year at age 70 to get a drivers license. Most of them go to the doctor every year for a physical. Just have the doctor have them take a reaction,…MORE

When Is Crime….Not A Just A Crime?

Earlier this week, The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), asked law enforcement to investigate the possibility of racial motive behind the recent string of vandalism of Mazzah Mediterranean Grill in Boise. A rock was thrown through their glass door, the establishment has had eggs thrown at them and had the word "murder" spelled out using…MORE

“Safety” First?

When "safety" is the lead argument, but not the true argument. Schools always want more money. Hey, who doesn't. When it comes to the schools wanting more, they have to ask their community. Meridian School District has, in my opinion, been creative with coming up with ideas for suplimental revenue streams. Considering school bus advertising…MORE

Right vs. Wrong

I personally think it is wrong to prevent someone from renting or buying a home because of their gender preference. If their credit checks out and they have the money for purchase, let them live there. I personally think its wrong to beat someone up just because of their gender preference. If they are a…MORE
