Re: “Yakima, Wash. Cancels Cosby Appearance

His strategy of manipulation and attempting to shift blame and shame the other person, throwing his weight around, is eerily reminiscent of what was described in the rape allegations..

Re: “One Shot, Seven Arrested in Curfew Clashes in Ferguson, Missouri

If you obey the law...NO...If you riot and do the damage that ferguson people did last night...yes. And to each answer...rightfully so.

Re: “Lammily Doll, the 'Anti-Barbie' Goes On Sale in U.S.

I don't think this doll will be successful. She does not have to have the exaggerated proportions of Barbie but she does not have to look over weight either. Slim her down a little and put her in tee shirt and jeans and she might sell better.

Re: “Yakima, Wash. Cancels Cosby Appearance

Might be easier to doubt or ignore the veracity of 'one' person's allegations, but several becomes a pattern not easy to discount.

Regarding the BMI comment by LA, BMI is not necessarily an accurate assessment of an individuals health. See http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/31/health/31brod.html?_r=0

Re: “Obama: Clinton Likely to Have Different Positions From Him in 2016 Race

Yes they will be very different. Clinton is the Multinational Girl. We can be certain anything the big boys want front the USA they will get. For those that took some time to read the leaked state department wires it is clear this was her job as Sec of State and she did it well. So candidate Clinton has been already chosen.

Re: “Lammily Doll, the 'Anti-Barbie' Goes On Sale in U.S.

The "average" 19-year-old at five feet, four inches tall and 150 pounds would have a BMI of 25.7, which is overweight. This speaks to the obesity epidemic in America. Rather than normalizing unobtainable (eg. Barbie) or unhealthy weights (eg. Lammily), dollmakers should focus on dolls that demonstrate a healthy body -- something that all children should aspire to.

Re: “GOP Weighs Government Shutdown to Stop Obama Immigration Plan

When do we all stop buying into this bullshit??? I don't care about political parties any more. Republican, Democrat, blah, blah, blah. They all lie. They just do the bidding of their corporate masters.

'Don't tax us', they say. So we don't.
'Give us tax breaks or we send our minimum wage jobs to China', so we do.
'Give us people who are willing to work for nothing', so we do.
'Give us loopholes so we don't have to provide benefits for our workers', so we do.

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

What's next, shooting buffalo from railroad cars. What's their motto, "If it moves kill it"

I suggest we all contact the Dept of Interior , Sally Jewell - Secretary- Phone 202-208-3100. The Dept of Interior oversees the BLM.

Re: “HHS Official: Action on Immigration Before Year-End

The most urgent aspect of immigration reform is to halt Muslim immigration. The most recent statistics I found show that 8% of recent legal immigrants are Muslims. If we foolishly allow our Muslim population to continue increasing, we will soon have Muslim riots, like Sweden, Germany, France and Britain.

Islam is not a religion. It is a sociopolitical ideology and system of law and governance that is utterly incompatible with individual freedom and liberal Western democracy. Read the Koran, and you will know why the Middle East is a bloody mess: “Now when ye meet those who disbelieve, smite their necks until when ye have slain them greatly…He (Allah) ordained fighting in order that He may prove you one by the other…” [Sura 47, Verse 4]
Recent research from the Pew Research Center shows that the majority of Muslims, including in the US, believe the Koran should be read as the literal word of God. Certainly there are moderate Muslims. The problem with Islam is that its astonishingly combative and vengeful prophet and God will always incite violence among disaffected young male adherents.

Prevention of further Muslim immigration would actually only require enforcement of the existing requirement that candidates for citizenship take an oath to honor and uphold the US Constitution. There is no way a person can honestly claim to believe in Islam and to honor and uphold the US Constitution because they are simply not compatible.

We must prohibit further immigration of Muslims, and revoke Islam’s status as a religion. It is not just a religion, but an ideology utterly contrary to our constitution, and to our way of life.

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

The last one in Salmon Idaho was a flop! I am pretty sure the Wolves are way smarter than the stupid "hunters" !! Pray for a blizzard, that area is difficult terrain with a river right there! May all those who participate in this SICK ordeal slip on ice into the river, drown while they freeze to death :)

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

I won't be buying anything from Idaho until the hunting of wolves is stopped. Likewise any other state that permits trophy hunting of wolves. Trophy hunting and trapping is barbaric and unneccesary in an evolved species and recreation such as this shows the type of human being we are permitting to carry a gun. Children of these "sportsmen" will be the next generation of woodland terrorists. I could go on but I think many of these comments are saying the same thing.

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

Lets hope the law suit that is being filed is successful and that this state sanctioned slaughter of our wildlife is brought to an end. What on earth, are you people teaching your children? It is only a matter of time until someone shoots a child that is brought on one of these blood-thirsty escapades. Granted, I 'm from Montana. However, what you are doing there in Salmon is just over the border from where I live. You people who attend this killing contest are sadistic sociopaths.
