Re: “GOP Weighs Government Shutdown to Stop Obama Immigration Plan

When do we all stop buying into this bullshit??? I don't care about political parties any more. Republican, Democrat, blah, blah, blah. They all lie. They just do the bidding of their corporate masters.

'Don't tax us', they say. So we don't.
'Give us tax breaks or we send our minimum wage jobs to China', so we do.
'Give us people who are willing to work for nothing', so we do.
'Give us loopholes so we don't have to provide benefits for our workers', so we do.

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

What's next, shooting buffalo from railroad cars. What's their motto, "If it moves kill it"

I suggest we all contact the Dept of Interior , Sally Jewell - Secretary- Phone 202-208-3100. The Dept of Interior oversees the BLM.

Re: “HHS Official: Action on Immigration Before Year-End

The most urgent aspect of immigration reform is to halt Muslim immigration. The most recent statistics I found show that 8% of recent legal immigrants are Muslims. If we foolishly allow our Muslim population to continue increasing, we will soon have Muslim riots, like Sweden, Germany, France and Britain.

Islam is not a religion. It is a sociopolitical ideology and system of law and governance that is utterly incompatible with individual freedom and liberal Western democracy. Read the Koran, and you will know why the Middle East is a bloody mess: “Now when ye meet those who disbelieve, smite their necks until when ye have slain them greatly…He (Allah) ordained fighting in order that He may prove you one by the other…” [Sura 47, Verse 4]
Recent research from the Pew Research Center shows that the majority of Muslims, including in the US, believe the Koran should be read as the literal word of God. Certainly there are moderate Muslims. The problem with Islam is that its astonishingly combative and vengeful prophet and God will always incite violence among disaffected young male adherents.

Prevention of further Muslim immigration would actually only require enforcement of the existing requirement that candidates for citizenship take an oath to honor and uphold the US Constitution. There is no way a person can honestly claim to believe in Islam and to honor and uphold the US Constitution because they are simply not compatible.

We must prohibit further immigration of Muslims, and revoke Islam’s status as a religion. It is not just a religion, but an ideology utterly contrary to our constitution, and to our way of life.

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

The last one in Salmon Idaho was a flop! I am pretty sure the Wolves are way smarter than the stupid "hunters" !! Pray for a blizzard, that area is difficult terrain with a river right there! May all those who participate in this SICK ordeal slip on ice into the river, drown while they freeze to death :)

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

I won't be buying anything from Idaho until the hunting of wolves is stopped. Likewise any other state that permits trophy hunting of wolves. Trophy hunting and trapping is barbaric and unneccesary in an evolved species and recreation such as this shows the type of human being we are permitting to carry a gun. Children of these "sportsmen" will be the next generation of woodland terrorists. I could go on but I think many of these comments are saying the same thing.

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

Lets hope the law suit that is being filed is successful and that this state sanctioned slaughter of our wildlife is brought to an end. What on earth, are you people teaching your children? It is only a matter of time until someone shoots a child that is brought on one of these blood-thirsty escapades. Granted, I 'm from Montana. However, what you are doing there in Salmon is just over the border from where I live. You people who attend this killing contest are sadistic sociopaths.

The average full-time hourly wage at Walmart stores is $12.92, compared with the federal minimum wage of $7.25, according to the company.

Where did this stat come from?

There's nothing I can say that won't be censored... except... I hope Karma is paying attention. Salmon Idaho is evil and the people who support this are of low intelligence and morality.

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

The people who allow children to use guns to kill any sort of animals for fun is totally beyond my way of thinking, what next - organise a day where you can all cull one another, no wonder you have the highest record for deaths by guns than any other state. Come on wake up, soon the wolves, etc. will be wiped out - you will only have yourselves go blame - SUCH A SHAME THAT ANIMALS CANNOT USE GUNS - PAY BACK IS A BITCH.

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

This is sick beyond words. How in the world can this be allowed especially when it concerns children. This has to be stopped. Wolves are so important to the environment. Please don't allow this. Please.

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

Everything that ya all are saying is judgemental bull crap there is not one comment that has had anyone stop and think maybe there is an excess amount and its once a year for 5 years! the amount that are their could be going onto peoples land killing their livestock which is beef,chickens or whatever and slaughter them like I said there is obviously a reason this is happening and it don't mean that they are rednecks or anything else I am pretty sure that not one of your doors are completely clean maybe ya'all should get details before running ya'alls mouths!

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

My God, Idaho becomes more and more like Nazi Germany every day. Wolf hunters are shooting people's dogs because they can't tell the difference. People's pets are being killed in traps that trap every animal in the forest beside the ones the idiot trappers really want. And now a bunch of slobbering rednecks will go into PUBLIC LANDS to kill anything that moves and as much of it calling it a "contest" and children are encouraged to come along? Has Idaho yet reached the 20th century? I've never seen a more callous, uneducated, bunch of sadistic trash than in Idaho. If I were a Jew living in Idaho I'd be scared as hell.

Boycott states that do this sort of thing and let their politicians know you are boycotting them and why.
