Re: “Otter Still Waiting for Trump's Call

George: Ag is nowhere near 20% of Idaho's economy. That is a commonly repeated myth that is easily debunked by visiting the BEA website. Agriculture, forestry, fishing, farming accounted for $3.508 bb in GDP out of Idaho's total $65.549 bb in total GDP in 2005.

Re: “More Heather Scott Melodrama at Idaho Statehouse: Five GOP Legislators Ask to Be Removed From Committees

For as long as most of us can remember, the GOP has had a "super majority" in the Legislature, and pretty much calls the shots. I believe at its root, the local Legislative Soap Opera is a microcosm of the power struggle in the GOP, between the "establishment" group and the "Neo-Republicans."

I suspect that the Bigwigs will beat those rebels into submission, and get back to their traditional Establishment GOP Legislatin' (and ignoring the Democrat minority), in fairly short order.

Re: “Punished After Claiming Female House Members Trade Sex for Power, Rep. Heather Scott Issues Statement: 'I Call It Like I See It'

But that doesn't excuse her clueless and racist actions like her confederate fag incident

Re: “Punished After Claiming Female House Members Trade Sex for Power, Rep. Heather Scott Issues Statement: 'I Call It Like I See It'

She's being punished because she is a woman. The men say much worse than that. What about the Rep for Idaho's corporate group last year who made horrible statements and was protected.

Re: “AP: Idaho Department of Ed Drafted, Then 'Scrapped,' Teacher Evaluation Deal With Same Firm That Audited Current System

As many school administrators and the auditors themselves have said this was to see what was being done two years ago so that they had a baseline. Most of the current requirements were not in place so it was expected that there would not be compliance yet.

Re: “Official Ballot Recounts in Eastern Idaho Result in Zero Change

Considering our enforce state Constitution, Guthrie shouldn't even remain in our legislature for his "immoral behavior," not to mention that he has been a "failure" for years. In fact, I wrote our beloved Attorney General about the Constitution requirement and Guthrie's known behavior. The AG has yet to respond at all....

And, I must frankly admit, Nye is simply a pompous, arrogant fool.

Consider the basis of state governance failures: Our "simple majority voting concept" has over the years simply allowed an inept collection of an utter ship-of-foolish-hollow men and women. Our citizenry remains basically uninformed and quietly enslaved by blatantly embarrassing governance.

We sorely need a "Mr. Trump" within our state.
