Bill Colley's Commentary

Voting for Trump? Who Else is There?
There’s too much hyperventilating going on at National Review. Donald Trump may bring about the end of the Republican Party but for years I’ve been told Republican and conservative are two distinct words. Lincoln wasn’t a conservative in the same vein …
Conservatives Kneecap Donald Trump
You don’t need to go to the right college to know enough to come indoors when it rains. I’ve spent years pointing out the American left has a serious Robespierre fetish. The left in academia, politics and media believes it knows better and is willing to go to great le…
Dreams of Heaven and Hell
I spoke with two dead relatives during the night. My brother has been gone well over 5 years and in April it’ll be 20 years since Dad left the family. I spend time thinking about them. A great deal of time. Once in a while they appear in my dreams...
GOP Frantically Shouts Trumplestiltskin!
I was doing some pre-game reading today and it strikes me all the ink spilled daily on Donald Trump could fill a library.
We’re at a point now where nothing any longer can be said that’s original to explain the rise of the real estate baron in American politics...
Idaho’s Worst Pothole!
Where is it?
With the mild thaw this week there are craters all over local streets and roads.  Where is the worst?  What can swallow a car?  Shatter a tie-rod?  Ruin an alignment?  Some years ago I was driving over a cratered bridge over the Susquehanna River...
Sorry, Drew, It’s Not O.K.
A nice guy I knew while growing up could spend his last days in prison.  I came home from work last Friday night to learn he had been arrested and a meth lab discovered in his house.  Friends who haven’t seen him in years are plainly in shock...

Idaho is Cruel to Wild Beasts?
Who knew?  I received this news release from some circus act implying Idaho Fish and Game wants to kill wolves.  After all, who in their right mind doesn't!  Enjoy:
Idaho Breaks Agreement Using Helicopter Drops to Collar Wolves in Frank Church Wilderness
Idaho Fish & Game Department could use coll…
Ted Cruz Needles The Illegal Alien Enablers
From the breathless whining files of “How dare the man!” Lefty is having a conniption fit after seeing the latest Ted Cruz commercial. I think it’s quite clever. It features well-dressed professionals with brief cases and some in high-heels crossing a rive…
Football Tests Us On & Off The Field
Pete LoPresti gave up 7 goals one night to the mighty Montreal Canadiens.  During the middle of the 1970s LoPresti became the starting goaltender for his home state Minnesota North Stars.  Hall-of-Famer Lorne “Gump” Worsley had retired and regular goalie Cesare …
Idaho a Popular Place to Live
Apparently it’s last call and Idaho is getting prettier with each tick of the clock. United Van Lines has calculated Idaho is one of the most popular destinations not just for tourists but for newcomers. Only neighboring Oregon has a higher calculation of inbound movers and then our …
The Need for a Russian Alliance
Call me a Russophile.  Even when I was younger and recognized the failures of the Soviet Union I had no animosity against the people of its largest component (Republic was a bit of a stretch).  As a boy I was thrilled when visiting hockey teams toured North America or played in the Olympic…
