Mountain West, Here We Come. Again.

So, after the craziness and defections of the last couple weeks, it’s now final. Boise State will remain in the Mountain West conference. Not to say it really surprises me, because it doesn’t. The Big East was well on its way to becoming the laughing stock of the college football world. And, that’s the last […]

Bread and Circuses

Here’s one of my favorite quotes. It took me awhile to track it down because in my mind I had attributed the phrase “bread and circuses” to Thomas Jefferson. I believe Thomas did mention “bread and circuses” somewhere in his writings, but not in this (the current entitlement-heavy political environment) context. Here it is… A […]

Rats

The aftermath of the election has been enlightening, to say the least. Basically, the big population centers re-elected Obama. Taken to the extreme – the people who “live like rats” re-elected him. Go figure. If you look at a map of the electorate by county (the smallest division I’ve seen to date), most of the […]

Here’s a recap of my predictions prior to the season start, and my results. Joe Southwick. Before the season started I saw a fours QB candidates play twice – […]

Go, Go, Go Joe Southwick

Joe Southwick Named Starter Joe Southwick was named as the staring QB for Boise State today. Can’t say it surprised me considering the separation I saw last Saturday during their open scrimmage. Joe looked like he was on top of things (but still needs to learn a bit about composure), while the other quarterbacks – including […]

Here is a breakdown of what we (yes, we – the people) pay the current Whitehouse staff. $40,000-$70,000 Researchers, assistants and analysts ($40,000 or so) Scheduler ($58,000) Speechwriter ($60,000) –Note: might explain why Obama’s speeches are so crappy $70,000-$100,000 Director of White House Operations ($85,000) Special Assistant […]

A Little Activism on the Court?

I just don’t get it. Justice Robertson did the unexpected, and he did it in a very, very sneaky way. When Obama tried to pass his stupid healthcare bill, he emphasized that the penalty for not complying was definitely not a tax. And, why did he do that? To make it more palatable for the […]

Wow. More Obama Stories That WIll Curl Your Toes

I have never been so against a political candidate before in my life. I was never a fan of Bill Clinton either, but I could at least tolerate him. From NewsMax: …Obama was a member of the far left [ACORN affiliated] New Party and also signed a “contract” promising to publicly support and associate himself […]

An Open Letter to Motorists in Boise (or Anywhere, Really)

Understand this – when you drive by someone on a bicycles, and yell something out of an open window, all we really hear is “Aaaak”. We can’t hear and distinguish anything more than a syllable, much less a sentence. So, the next time you want to drive by me and yell “Fag!” or “Idiot!” or […]
