Re: “With Regrets to a Fellow Cyclist

Well said Jacob. It is refreshing to hear about newly discovered self awareness. This is good for all, and especially society in general.

This is a terrible injustice for a terrible injustice? I think not! The man that inhumanly tortured, raped and killed 3 innocent human beings has been fed, clothed, housed, given medical care for 22+ years, which is by far is more dignity and respect given to the people he left alone to die horrible deaths. He has gotten to see his loved ones in his last hours, eaten his choosen last meal. He will be treated with dignity to die in the warmth not out in a snow bank bleeding to death! I do however feel sympathy for the loved ones that have lost everything because of this man which by the way Paul Ezra Rhodes also has a mother that has lost a son.

Karl Marx said that religion is the opiate of the masses. He was wrong, of course, the real opiate of the masses is jealousy, which those in power use to vilify the very wealthy, and thus get support from the "have-nots."

Wow.
Just...WOW.
'Jealousy', really? Are you seriously this inept, this uninformed? 'Jealously' is not and never has been the issue, NeoCon. It's about paying YOUR FAIR SHARE, something the Very Rich are NOT doing...a 'need to vilify' them? PLEASE. They do that just fine on their own...but hey, go ahead and think it's about 'jealousy' all you need to, keep avoiding the TRUTH.

Oh, and religion IS the opiate of the masses, when 90% of America actually buys into the laughable 'religion' thing, sport. Your 'theory' regarding 'the have nots' is almost as laughable, though.

Those in power (the Obama administration), including sycophants, such as Michael Moore and Al Gore, are very wealthy themselves. Do you think they want their wealth redistributed? I think not.

You think WRONG.

The 'sycophants' you mention donate to charity on a regular basis. Hell, Obama even writes his own personal CHECKS to people you send him mail, asking for help with finances...

http://morallowground.com/2011/10/21/presi…

Do YOU do any of that? Do YOU help the less fortunate, or do you just hurl accusations and insults to those that look to even the playing field? Oh, right, sorry...YOU have 'yours'...screw the less fortunate, right?

Because it's all about YOU, isn't it?

Typical Conservative.

The lead post "If you think that beating a pathetic Georgia Bulldog team says anything, you are terribly wrong" was not an anonymous post since it did have a posters name associated with it.
I guess the BW is just following along with Faux News in using misrepresentation to generate controversy. From the lack of responses here, that didn't seem to work out to well.

I think Amanda gets it, a few years back we were sitting on the terrace above 8th and Main when my sister who lives in California commented on all the high school aged "gang bangers wanna bees". Her comments were about the style the kids were reaching for without the substance.

Re: “Mail and Commentary Aug. 10, 2011

OOPS!

I made a boo boo. Ada County Commissioner Rick Yzaguirre DID NOT take any money from Treasure Valley Racing or any other Greene Group affiliate. Sorry Rick my bad.

It was ROGER SIMMONS along with Vern Bisterfeldt who took money from Winning for Idaho the PAC run by Doug Okuniewicz and Joie Hood. Winning for Idaho gets its money from CdA Racing which is owned by Alabama/Idaho which is owned by Greene Group which is run by Paul W. Bryant Jr.

Say, do we REALLY want these people from ALABAMA running our IDAHO racetrack?? I didn't think so.

RE: Greyhounds

I said this once before.

Les Bopis Park is being run by Greene Group of Alabama. They own Alabama Idaho which owns Coeur d'Alene racing which owns Greyhound Park and Events Center in Post Falls which used to be called Coeur d'Alene Greyhound Park.

For those of you who don't remember, Coeur d'Alene Greyhound Park was forced to stop live dog racing by the Idaho State Legislature because of severe animal cruelty. Things like electrocution of dogs in a "party" atmosphere. Dogs killed and dumped in the local land fill. CdA Greyhound park became known as the "Auschwitz" of greyhound parks.

Sooooooo....

That is why racing, training or simulcasting greyhounds is a felony in Idaho. These people should be in jail! The only exception is the facility at post falls, they can simulcast dog races. Thats because Greene Group is owned by Alabama money man Paul W. Bryant Jr. and he has DEEP pockets. Just ask Butch Otter if you don't believe me. Otter has cheerfully acceptted over $72,000, and counting, from these people. Pissed off yet?

I'll be back with the total of all political contributions to date by Treasure Valley Racing LLC and associates very soon. Why? Because you the people have the right to know that your lawmakers are bought and paid for. From the Weasel, (Otters are part of the Weasel Family), on down to Ada County Commissioners Bisterfeldt and Yzaguirre and all points in between!

Re: “Mail and Commentary Aug. 10, 2011

Re: Greyhound racing simulcasting: 'So why aren't the authorities prosecuting Les Bois horse track to the fullest extent of the law?' Good question......

Greyhound racing is cruel and inhumane. Greyhounds endure lives of nearly constant confinement, kept in cages barely large enough for them to stand up or turn around. While racing, many dogs suffer and die from injuries including broken legs, paralysis, and cardiac arrest. And many greyhounds are euthanized every year, as the number retired from racing exceeds the number of adoptive homes.

At racetracks across the country, greyhounds endure lives of confinement. According to industry statements, greyhounds are generally confined in their cages for approximately 20 hours per day. They live inside warehouse-style kennels in stacked cages that are barely large enough to stand up or turn around. Generally, shredded paper or carpet remnants are used as bedding.

An undercover video recently released by GREY2K USA shows the conditions in which these gentle dogs are forced to live: http://www.grey2kusa.org/azVideo.html

Dogs play an important role in our lives and deserve to be protected from industries and individuals that do them harm.

A lot of interesting information about Margaret Lawrence there, that was not covered in the original story. I s'pose if it had been reported, the story wouldn't have been such a conspiratorial page-turner.

Re: “Mail and Commentary March 16, 2011

Hey, Thomas V. Munson, Boise...

"Driving by Riverside Elementary last week I saw, during school hours, a teacher and her students holding signs in opposition to the education reform legislation. She was using her students' class time to advocate on behalf of her collective bargaining rights."

Did the thought ever cross your closed mind that perhaps this 'striking teacher' was educating her students as to how things now work in America? Teachers are made to strike to hold on to their RIGHT to strike, their right for bargaining, their right to have a VOICE...maybe she was showing them how the system works? (at least until the Koch Brothers get their way, anyway)...

"The Idaho Education Association says to "remember in November" (apparently referring to 2012). Trust me, this taxpayer will."

Glad to hear it. So will I. Just know that MY vote will be rendering YOUR vote of intolerance and ignorance MOOT.

Oops, the last comment to Misty Bright did not post under my real name. I'm Paul Thomas, the guy Pete Simmons "agrees" with who wrote the letter last week.

Re: “Mail and Commentary March 9, 2011

Dear Misty Bright: Obviously you're a very sincere person, and I applaud you for it. Sincere people have pure hearts, and often don't recognize sarcasm when they see it. So let me assure you that both Pete Simmons and myself are only using sarcasm to make a point.

Of course, if Pete really is for real, that would be scary indeed.

Re: “Mail and Commentary March 9, 2011

Carmiekaykay:

"I had the same type of teachers that were only there for a paycheck."

Which equates that ALL teachers are 'only there for the paycheck', then?

You really shouldn't be so quick to make an all encompassing, laughable statement...it seriously detracts from any credibility you MAY have had in your post.

Maybe you should have stayed in school longer?
