Re: “Attorney General: U.S. Recognizes Gay Marriage in Idaho, More States

If you think you are going to have buyer's remorse with your gay child, don't make everyone's life miserable - try abstinence. And please stop blaming us for your failures, your incompetence as a parent does not translate into anyone else's immorality. Let me know how this works out for you.

Re: “Attorney General: U.S. Recognizes Gay Marriage in Idaho, More States

Holder and the judges can recognize anything they feel like. In the mean time, the public and their elected representatives haven't changed their minds, to judge by the lack of legislation on the subject. Besides "gay marriage" will always be "gay marriage" and never "marriage" because the latter exists to establish the rights of children to the support of their biological parents, something gays will never even acknowledge.

Re: “Maker of U.S. Highway Guardrail System Stops Shipments

Trinity reduced the guardrail width from 5" to 4" in 2005 to save money.
Then the guardrail started spearing vehicles instead of protecting vehicles and their occupants.

Trinity made this change without notifying the National Highway Transportation Safety Admin.

Re: “Maker of U.S. Highway Guardrail System Stops Shipments

How much do we expect a guardrail to do and how much are we willing to pay for it?

Re: “U.S. National Park Graffiti Vandal Spotted Through Social Media

It's not "that hard of work" to get to these areas, like described above, but the defacement of these natural places is abominable.

Re: “Wyoming Attorney General Says Gay Marriage Can Begin Tuesday

Wyoming is at least saving state money and keeping Court business moving by not filing an appeal. I would suspect the number of applicants to be small but in view of Brokeback Mountain and the horror of the Laramie murder of Matt Shepherd, it is only appropriate that Wyoming fully embrace marriage equality. Congratulations to Wyoming and to its Attorney General for applying legal sense in this decision. Let's all work together to love and respect each other regardless of our personal views on marriage.

Re: “GMO Labeling Foes Spending Big on Elections

Who in their right mind spends hundreds of millions of shareholder profit to cover up their products? Oh wait, tobacco does! I guess if your product kills people, bees, butterflies and all else that's good in the world, you don't want that getting out.

Re: “GMO Labeling Foes Spending Big on Elections

Yes, Native Idaho, they probably did, but I bet you will find they also contributed to AJ Balukoff as well. Most big corporations double down on their donations. That way they can control whomever gets into office.

Money owns and runs politics in the USA. Does anyone refuse this fact, still?

Re: “Private Donors Supply Spy Gear to Cops

Great. Just what we need, more government over reach, and this time at state and local level. Gear up folks, lock, load, and don't be afraid.

Re: “Wal-Mart Will End Healthcare Benefits for Some Part-Timers

These employees will be better off because they can get better insurance for less money through the health care exchange. By company directive, employees working less than 30 hours make up 70% of Walmart's total employees. Only 2% chose to take part in the program because frequently, their share of the insurance cost exceeded their total paycheck.

Re: “Oregon Caves May Upend Understanding of Humans in the Americas

It is a bit pathetic if these cave sites haven't been long ago placed on the National Register. True recent radiocarbon dating and aDNA advances have added much to our knowledge of the inhabitants, but the importance of the caves has been widely recognized by American archaeologists since well before the National Historic Preservation Act itself was passed near half a century ago. If the National Park Service & state agencies are trying to spin this as a new discovery, they are just trying to cover their own slothful behinds.

Re: “Former Montana Teacher Re-Sentenced For Rape of Student

The judge has said he intends to retire when his term expires at the end of the year. So the judge will retire with a full pension paid for by taxpayers and will not be held negligent in any way? Sounds like something that would only happen in America.
