Re: “Idahoans Gather at Capitol in Support of Refugees

Before you open your doors, especially to muslims, you should do a little research on the religion of Islam. Muslims ARE Islam, and their religion dictates their way of life. the jihad is the practice of ruling the world by violent means. Migration is part of the plan. To rape a non-muslim woman is a challenge to the man. In England, the Muslims are targeting thousands of little girls. That country now has the highest crime rate of any other country. Open your doors and you threaten America. What does that make you? In their land if they find out you are a Christian your head gets chopped off. Educate yourselves.

Re: “Idahoans Gather at Capitol in Support of Refugees

I was given a hateful look and spit at by a refugee as he was walking past my home. My crime; sitting on my back patio enjoying the fresh air, and watching people go by on the greenbelt.
The refugees that are being sent here have had no background checks. We don't know who they really are or what ideologies they have. I know one thing about the guy that spit at me. He obviously does not like the presence of Idahoans in Idaho.

Re: “Idahoans Gather at Capitol in Support of Refugees

I'm curious...did any of these people stop by the Interfaith Santuary on their way home and offer any of Boise's homeless people a job or a place to live????? Why in the heck would you support people from other countries before taking care of our people right here in our own town!!!!????? And on a side note....I have a house full of refugees ( at least 10 living in 1 house) renting the house next door to me and the have completely trashed the place! There is furniture and clothing all over the back yard and the yard is completely burned up. No respect whatsoever for the homeowners house or the people who live around them.

Re: “'Beyond 75': Study Indicates Bogus Needs Snowmaking, Higher Prices

"I've been told by several long time residents that a similar study was done in the past and it recommended lowering prices to attract local skiers, vice raising prices and gunning for the out of town crowd. Not saying they aren't hurting, but does anyone know if this is true?"

Years ago Bogus used to charge something like $500 for a pass, similar to the big resorts, and couldn't compete. They were barely holding on until they switched directions and started offering the $199 pass to attract locals and families.

Not sure why they would want to switch strategies again. I understand the need for price increases to keep with inflation and maybe some investment in snowmaking, but raising prices and trying to compete with the resorts on amenities and infrastructure is a losing proposition.

Re: “Boise's 'Anti-Camping" Ordinance Returns to Federal Court

Read and re-read the post from Conscientious realist above. Any of you disagreeing have not worked in a shelter, food bank or other support facility for the homeless. I promise you, after doing this type of work in 6 cities for 30+ years, there are ample programs available for those in need. The ones who are on the street begging for your money are using it to by drugs or alcohol. If they want help, they can get it and easily too. If you think the city is being "mean" for passing these ordinances, you are just wrong. If you think you are helping by handing money out your window, you are just wrong. All you have done is buy them their next high. You want to really help? Put your money where your mouth is and go volunteer at a shelter.

Re: “Idahoans Gather at Capitol in Support of Refugees

If each one of these supporters is willing to take in a refugee or two THEN maybe others will believe in their mission and help out with their hard earned tax dollars. It's easy to say 'yes' when spending someone else's money.

Re: “UPDATE: Humane Society Offers $10,000 Reward for Information on Mutilated Pony in Minidoka County

It is a fact that animal abusers escalate to humans. They practice on animals. The next victim may be your child, your sister or your neighbor. The extreme viciousness of this attack is not a good indicator that this person will stop. They may accelerate due to the publicity. They will continue torturing and killing and they will do it to people.

This crime is only a misdemeanor in Idaho.
In my state of Arizona having ONE joint of pot is a class 6 FELONY.
God this country is retarded.
These monsters that butchered that beautiful pony need to meet the same fate they handed out to kind patches!

Re: “Idahoans Gather at Capitol in Support of Refugees

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all his children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as I am in how you choose to live and give.

May Patches Rest in Peace. The evil people who did this must be identified and punished. The punishment should fit the crime. There are no words to express my hatred for these demons.

Re: “UPDATE: Humane Society Offers $10,000 Reward for Information on Mutilated Pony in Minidoka County

( continued from previous comment due to 200 word limit )

Shouldn't these inbred sicko whack jobs be charged with some felony over the horse theft and the cruelty is bumped up as it happened in the commission of that felony ??

That Sheriff had better turn himself into a reincarnated version of Longmire and everything on his desk gets shoved off on the floor until these scum are behind bars.

I don't normally subscribe to vigilante justice but if this Sheriff proves less that adequate to the job sign me up for the vigilantes.and if they do end up behind bars somebody tell me where to contribute to the jailhouse "fund" that handles these matters behind bars.

Someone please enlighten me here.

Re: “UPDATE: Humane Society Offers $10,000 Reward for Information on Mutilated Pony in Minidoka County

Six years in the Marine Corps and I thought I'd heard and seen some pretty sick stuff.

As I read again and again how toothless the cruelty laws are in Idaho I have to wonder what planet Idaho is on (citing the now-discredited Idaho Legislature law that criminalized video recording of animal abuse???!!! ) .- but that is NOT the point of my comment - to denigrate the good citizens of Idaho.

My comment is my confusion about the worst that could happen is some misdemeanor bullshit fine or a month cleaning the roadsides - didn't those people steal that horse? Now, I've never been much of a cowboy but I thought in western states horse thieving was a pretty big deal.

Re: “UPDATE: Humane Society Offers $10,000 Reward for Information on Mutilated Pony in Minidoka County

Cindy, how does every letter make a difference … with this Legislature?

A legislature that passed an ag-gag bill (unconstitutional on its face, apparent even at the time it was approved) requiring the state to spend great sums of taxpayer money unsuccessfully defending in court?

A legislature that has a hard time with human rights, much less animal rights, witness the nine years it took for the "Add the Words" folks to even be granted a hearing … before they were voted down.

I think it's delusional to tell people to write letters ... and that every letter makes a huge difference. It flies in the face of years -- nay, decades -- of past experience with the Idaho Legislature.

Until people start voting -- in far greater numbers than they have in the past -- and until better candidates come forth (candidates with an "R" beside their name, rather than the "D" that's the "scarlet letter" in much of Idaho) then we can expect the same behavior from this state assembly.

I'm not sure if Bogus knows their peer group. The idea of paying $71 to $85 to ski the terrain and snow at Bogus is ridiculous.
