“Self Interest” vs “Selfish Interest”

There is a difference between “self-interest” and “selfish interest”. The difference can be found in the word “selfness”. Today we are watching captains of industry, leaders in academia, our Ecclesiastical leaders in The Church(s), and special interest corporate lobbyists like IACI/IMA/IHA, and the CofC proceed in their own “selfish” interests.

State of Idaho v. Ammon Bundy

Where’s the Beef?

Every night I read the EYE ON BOISE review post edited by award winning journalist Betsy Russell. I am amazed at how many bills are brought up before legislative committees that remind me of the famous Wendy’s add from the early 80’s. A little old lady gets a burger from a drive in and bites […]

Why President Trump didn’t Endorse Brad Little for Governor

The Biden administration continues to move illegals by bus, train and plane to cities throughout the U.S, inflation is raging, our major cities are saturated in a crime wave, and all they want to do is to warn us about Omicron.

When Fighting a Worthy Opponent

A tip of the hat to Governor Brad Little. I have lived in Idaho for almost 40 years, and I have not watched a more effective State of The State Address. Lacking the retail political skills and charisma of his predecessor or the ability to connect with the people like a Cecil Andrus or the […]
