Public Office

I had an interesting conversation with a pretty important figure in the community. He encouraged me to run again for the State Legislature. Next time on the Republican ticket. He said that while it would be a tough race for the Primaries, but winning that, I’d pretty much walk into Congress. He dropped some names on me of people who would support me. It’s tempting. I said that I would give it the utmost consideration. The support that I had was incredible, and knowing that I would have more really is encouraging.
However to be honest, the process of campaigning was draining. A lot of work for very little reward other than “Just Doing The Right Thing.” The compensation for being in office doesn’t equal the expenses that I would have being out in SLC while the House is in session. I was willing to do it before, but it was a lot to put my family through. We made a lot of sacrifices as a family, and I don’t want to ask them to go through that again for another run at the House.
State Senate on the other hand, that’s a different story. If I was to run for office again, it would be for the Senate and right now, the man in that office is unassailable. I’d have to wait until he was more vulnerable. So until then… I just have to say “I’ll think about it.”

Bonehead of the Week

As those that listen to Armed American Radio know, ever week we pick a Bonehead.

We go through emails and stacks of newspaper articles and TV Reports and… well, let’s just say that its a hard choice.  Every week, it’s like an Oscars of Idiots.  But we have to pick one main Bonehead… the Prince of Pathetic.  The selection process is tough… but we do it because it has to be done.  The headache these jackwagons give us… we go through a lot of Advil… But these guys need to be called out.

Now just because your favorite Bonehead didn’t make this week, doesn’t mean he or she isn’t a bonehead.   Be comforted in knowing that they are… because we can only pick one.  (Even if we just post the one)

So bookmark this page.   BONEHEAD OF THE WEEK.  It’s on the A List now there on the right side.   You can also sign up for the News Letter, so you can have that Bonehead come straight to your email.
