Re: “They Pledge Allegiance: Foreign Born, Americans All

With any luck, we can settle so many refugees in our area, that our culture will become more diverse, and a lot less redneck. I would MUCH rather see more Syrian refugees and less right-wing nutbags refugees from more liberal states. Congratulations to the new Idahoans...live long and prosper.

Proud..? They are in contempt of everything they're supposed to do and when they do it they do the biggest crappiest job I've ever seen in any state in any City in this entire nation

Re: “ACHD: Idaho Law is 'Ambiguous' on Who Should Be Shoveling Boise Streets

Achd should be abolished dismantled and the responsibility of the safety of the citizens in Boise should go to Boise. The complete lack of responsibility or wanting to take responsibility of achd in their statements and lack of effort lack of doing anything until forced to is the proof.

Re: “Downtown Deep Freeze

Clearly achd should be abolished. I saw a newscast earlier in the year where they were interviewed by a new station regarding snow plows. I was astonished at the persons who is in charge of this operation response, basically he said, what are we supposed to do just have truck sitting around in the parking lot waiting around for the possibility of a snowstorm... Unsatisfactory is how I found that response. I believe it was within two days we were in a blizzard and I thought of that stupid comment or rather a careless comment from the individual. We live in a snow state, there is absolutely no excuse for not being prepared clearly achd was not. The apathy was at a high level all you had to do was walk anywhere downtown to see that that they gave no care or thought to where they were dumping or snow they wiped out all the sidewalks they didn't make any kind of safe passage at crosswalks it was Despicable and beneath contempt and my vote is they need to go.

Re: “After Emotional Hearing, Idaho House Panel OKs Bill to License Sign Language Interpreters

i don't have time to give an articulate and elaborate response. bottom line: dumb, unnecessary law sponsored by big gov GOP. stop taking personal responsibility and accountability away from your citizens. if the folks that want to use these terps don't do their own research, then it's on them. no need to make it harder to become a term in a limited field already by including a fee.

and news flash, just because the gov't approves it as safe doesn't mean it is and will always be safe. people still get food sick from gov approved restaurants, people still get injured due to malpractice from govt approved drs..big gov goons

Re: “Bill Emerges That Would Give 'Leeway' to Passing Motorists on Idaho Highways

Many people "spend eternity" in Idaho trying to get health care, decent wages, and other basic human needs. But the Idaho Neanderthals (no not a new sports team. It's our governor and legislators) are more concerned about faster driving.

I thought I was having a bad dream but no, it's just Idaho.

Re: “Young Organizers of People for Unity Deliver Postcards to Sen. Crapo, Talk School Walkout

Great work! A new generation of activists. It's an uphill climb in Idaho to oppose ill conceived, dangerous and self serving decisions and legislation whether it be in the state or at the national level. We look forward to hearing more.

Re: “Bill Emerges That Would Give 'Leeway' to Passing Motorists on Idaho Highways

"No, increased risk for impatience makes no sense."

If a car is 5mph under the speed limit and you pass by the 5mph, or 7 ft / sec is too slow for safe passing. Counting a the following gap when you start your pass and when you left enough room to merge back by not speeding your version of passing could take 15 second. That is too long and not safer.

Re: “Young Organizers of People for Unity Deliver Postcards to Sen. Crapo, Talk School Walkout

Ah, "young organizers"! Is there ANYTHING they don't know?!! (But seriously, more power to 'em! It's great that we live in a country where people are free to disagree and dissent.)

Everybody who's in favor of "unity" are wishing that the other guys would see things THEIR way.

If women are going on strike on February 16, who will fetch beer for the men? (Since it's a Thursday, I guess they can fetch their own, for that one day.)

Re: “Bill Emerges That Would Give 'Leeway' to Passing Motorists on Idaho Highways

We could also do away with speed limits on the interstate, especially where it is less congested. speed limits were never implemented for safety but due to the federal gov and trying to protect the environment. the speed limit stuck as the state saw it being profitable. no victim, no crime. do away with the limits.

Re: “Bill Emerges That Would Give 'Leeway' to Passing Motorists on Idaho Highways

how about we get rid of the bad laws? or allow law enforcement to use discretion?it's common sense that majority of folks passing will be going over the speed limit. man idaho.....still sitting in the stone age with dumb laws and big gov GOP.

Re: “Labrador-Sponsored Religious Freedom Bill Could Resurface This Year

I agree! This not what the U.S. is about. We have separation of church and state (including.... especially including schools!) Freedom of religion doesn't mean you get to dictate your morality to the rest of our citizens!

Re: “Bill Emerges That Would Give 'Leeway' to Passing Motorists on Idaho Highways

Washington State is adding passing lanes to many highways. Three will be added to the Pullman - Spokane highway this year.

That isn't going to happen in Idaho. It is more important to give millionaires tax-cuts rather than make our highways safer.

Re: “Bill Emerges That Would Give 'Leeway' to Passing Motorists on Idaho Highways

No, increased risk for impatience makes no sense. I've seen the double line for passing on a 2 lane in too many places that would not allow a blanket change like this to be a safe one. It's not about whether or not you'll get a ticket.
