End the Micro-Managing Original Tea Party patriots were basically fed up with taxes. The ‘Fed Up’ of today’s patriots is compounded by Big Government’s extreme overreach of its enumerated powers dissolving our freedoms and commerce with overwhelming quantities of new laws, regulations and taxes. Our commerce cannot compete in a world market of competitors who […]
This article is written in response to this guest opinion. I am outraged by the Idaho Statesman guest opinion dated March 2, 2015 on Trade Promotion Authority. One can only wonder if those that support these Partnerships are paid off by corporate elitists or if they are truly ignorant of the facts. Just who is […]
The Obama Administration’s Middle East policy decisions have been remarkable. That is, remarkable in the sense that they’ve all been abject failures. Through a combination of confusion, indecision, incompetence, arrogance, and personal animosity, the man who promised to be a unifying force in that region, may likely be the central figure in its ultimate demise. […]
I am a couple of days from turning 62 years old. Today seemed like a good day to start to journal my thoughts. It will be cathartic in a world that is going a bit mad. Ironically, to those around me, they think that I am not quite right, —— a bit off, —— negative.

If signed into […]

As you know I’ve been personally involved in this battle on fixing our education system and getting rid of Common Core for the past 2 years, so I do appreciate that you are spending time with parents who care enough about their children to homeschool them. Outside of a private school this is the only […]
In a recent Idaho Statesman article “IDAHO HEALTH INSURANCE COSTS TICK HIGHER” we are finally seeing the beginning of the end of the Obama Battle Cry. The president said “His health care law is reducing the overall costs – $1,800 in people’s pockets.” We all know what has really happened. Costs have doubled in many […]
It has been about five years since our television went flying out the second floor window of our home. Since then we’ve seen glimpses of the outrageous “made for television” events which are effectively pitting American against American within a kaleidoscopic odyssey of hate. Not for some time with my financial support I must add. […]
A new study by Yale University Professor Dan Kahan confirmed that skeptics of the controversial anthropogenic global-warming theory — or realists, as they often call themselves — know more about climate science than AGW theorists. The latest findings directly contradict the myths, or lies, put forward by man-made warming alarmists about the countless scientists and […]
With his declaration of candidacy for President, Senator Ted Cruz has unfortunately launched the Republican Party into the same realm of lawlessness traversed by the Democratic Party when its delegates nominated Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012.
