Re: “House Panel Forwards Reversal of Telemedicine Abortion Ban

In a humane society, there should be no place for "pills" designed intentionally to poison tiny unborn children being protected and nurtured in their mothers' wombs. Chemical poisoning of an innocent defenseless human being is utterly barbaric. Administering poisoned medications to a little son or daughter in a mother's womb is cruel and inhumane. Violence against children is never 'necessary'. Their mothers' personal and social needs can and should be met by non-violent means

Re: “Trump's Clumsy Sweep: Idaho Immigrants Caught in Political Divide

To idahogr142: not all "non card carrying" immigrants ae on the run for their crimes. They do not participate in the welfare system, nor are they, despite the populist propaganda, more likely to commit crimes. Most are hard working parents who just want a better life for their families. Many have been your neighbors for years. they own homes, pay taxes, and even own businesses. Yes some are criminals, as are some American born persons. This does not make the entire group evil or criminal. See the individuals, not the "bad hombres" in the press and send the deviant, criminal (not parking tickets or speeding tickets) away. Keep the good hard working citizens-in-waiting and give them legal status. As a country we will benefit.

Re: “Trump's Clumsy Sweep: Idaho Immigrants Caught in Political Divide

I hope the law passes. Shame on Idaho, and the rest of the US, for building an economy dependent on illegal immigration. Here's another law they should pass. All employers/farmers knowingly employing illegal aliens should be warned for a first offense, fined for a second & jailed for repeated offenses. Illegals would not come or stay if they couldn't find a job.

Re: “Fear Full

I'm a little skeptical about MLK Jr. being a Republican, but otherwise I agree with Hope1's assessment of the situation. It's pretty obvious to any non-partisan observer, that the Democrats have a long history of courting the poor with promises of freebies. (And the better-off are always leery of that, because SOMEBODY - perhaps our great-great grandkids - will have to pay for it at some point.)

I bet it's just as beautiful today in St. Croix, as it was a year ago, despite the change in administration!

Cheers!

Just as you can know the quality of a person by the quality of their work...The lame laws are the work of lame leaders.

Re: “Amendment to Concealed-Carry Law Passes Through Idaho Legislature Committee

The Second Amendment has Biblical Natural Law foundation. Our Lord said in Luke 11:21, When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace. In Luke 22:35, 36 He said, He that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. The principle of armed self-defense is redundant throughout the scriptures in both testaments. Genesis 14, Esther 8 and 9, and Revelation 13:10 are good places to start. In fact, Revelation 13:10 is an extended commentary on the words of Jesus to Simon Peter in the Garden of Gethsemane when Christ told Peter to put up (not give up) his sword in Matthew 26:52. No passage of Scripture has been more egregiously misinterpreted (except Romans 13*) than this passage in Matthew.

Re: “Amendment to Concealed-Carry Law Passes Through Idaho Legislature Committee

The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the high powers" delegated directly to the citizen, and `is excepted out of the general powers of government.' A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power." [Cockrum v. State, 24 Tex. 394, at 401-402 (1859)]

This doesn't just hurt BCM. This hurts festivals such as Idaho Horror Film Festival and i48 that utilize The Egyptian Theatre as an exhibition space to showcase the State's native filmmakers.

Re: “Fear Full

Funny how the Democrats get a pass on all the anti civil rights they subjected minorities to...educate yourselves on the atrocities of the left wing until they figured out they could control minorities by giving them free stuff so they could acquire their votes....
Republicans like Martin Luther King , bet you didn't know he was Repub, knew better than to get into bed with the democrats. He knew they would be kept down for generations and its coming true.
Obama lied and coddled you into submission, you will belive anything spouting from a dems mouth now. He did you no favors.
You might not like Trump, but he's yet to give you a reason to bash him. Let's see where we are in a year or two then judge the man as president. I did for Obama , I kept hoping for change.

Re: “Trump's Clumsy Sweep: Idaho Immigrants Caught in Political Divide

We are NOT talking about legal green card carrying immigrants!!!!! Why can't some people grasp this concept???? Yes, we are all immigrants to this country, but we are talking about ILLEGAL, FELONY, MISDEMEANOR,ON THE RUN FOR THEIR CRIMES, NON CARD CARRYING ILLEGALS!!! If you still believe after this clarification that this thought process is inhuman, please, I beg of you, set an example and open your home. Please house and feed these people and get them off of our welfare system because I for one, do not want to pay for them. If you do, awesome! Please show us your true humane side and not just rhetoric
