• Attn: Bob Kustra

    What we have here is a failure to commensurate
      In other words, Bob, you take the college football part. All of it—lock, stock and jock straps. And the U of I takes the university part. This way, both schools can quit pretending they are proficient in roles at which they are clearly dismal flops.

  • Protofascism Comes

    The rise of the Tea Party
      Yes. The Tea Party is racist. But racism is only one facet of a more sinister political strain: a protofascist movement.

  • Fools Rush Out

    But that chickenshit stink lingers
      I have something I need to say to Idaho's Republican lawmakers, and I hope, hope, hope I didn't put it off so long that they're already headed back home.
  • Both Sides? No!

    Labrador licks the hand of equal culpability
      The proof is in who pulls the trigger. Even if your party-line horseshit of shared culpability were true--which it's not--it's always my side that ends up with the dead people.

    A closer look at Lunarship
      Holy crap, am I glad my kid is done with public schools!
  • Libertarianville

    A day in Paul country
      That's what freedom is all about--taking your own risks.
  • Crumbling Foundations

    Part I: The student as commodity
      This will be a most crucial societal challenge confronting Idahoans, this choice between our kids' best interests and a few extremists' dogmatic fever to privatize things that should never be reduced to profit/loss.
  • Crumbling Foundations

    Part II: Cronies come first
      To anyone who believes that providing a broad and public education to a nation's young is among the most fundamental services a government can render, this suggestion to sacrifice teachers on the altar of a balanced budget sounds misguided at best and medieval-level ignorant at worst.

  • Meddle-Lunka

    What community does VanderSloot speak for?
      This is the man who's trying to get into your heads, fellow Idahoans. As for me, whatever his idea of "community" is, I want no part of it.

  • Ed Rush—Pt. II

    The empty promise of charter schools
      The impetus behind the rush to establish more and more charter schools is that if private concerns are allowed to take the same budget money allotted to public schools, they could run the education of youngsters like a well-oiled business.
  • Mr. Obama: Resign Now

    With Democrats like him, who needs dictators?
      Obama is useless. Worse than that, he's dangerous.
  • Gipper Gaga

    The once and future con
      If you choose to construct your world from scraps of fantasy and threads of make-believe, you should know that sooner or later, you're due for a thorough collapse of the whole flimsy structure.
  • Constitution Reboot

      Take a good look around, and you have to say that regular people don't mind being screwed. I'd even say they look forward to it.
  • IDOC's Tech Problem

    A former employee's take on the flawed system
      A professional offender management system would maintain a clear, unalterable record of who made changes and retain copies of the original information.
  • Powerless No More

    The left's case for boycotting Obama in November
      Had Obama wanted, he could have governed to the left. Far to the left.
