Re: “Video: PETA Stages Anti-Wool Protest in Downtown Boise

I feel like no one really thinks about wool not being very nice to sheep. You just think that the sheep has to be sheared and that doesn't hurt the animal. I don't understand why shearers have to be so cruel and abusive. What is wrong with people?

Re: “Boise Makes Air Force Shortlist to House F-35 Fighter Jets

The Mayor and City Council recently approved the first new subdivision south the airport, despite the fact that location south and west of the airport will be subjected to significant noise levels due to the arrival of the new jets. Also, there has been a significant investment to revitalize the Vista corridor. This shows me that the City doesn't have a clear vision and isn't strong enough to protect its citizens from real estate developers, the BOI airport, and the military. Come on Boise city leadership.... LEAD and protect your people!

Re: “Video: PETA Stages Anti-Wool Protest in Downtown Boise

That'll get people's attention, and hopefully convince them to scratch wool off their shopping list. There are so many more humane options.

This is brilliant. So many people don't realize that wool causes massive suffering. There are so many better things to wear.

Love this protest. Vegan wool is easy to find, and it will keep you warm and cozy without contributing to cruelty.

Re: “Video: PETA Stages Anti-Wool Protest in Downtown Boise

Good for PETA. There's nothing warm about wool, not when sheep are abused so that it can be stolen from then. With all of the stylish, durable synthetics available, there are plenty of options to ward off the chill without making animals suffer.

Re: “Miss Sloane: Slogging Through the Swamp

"Already nominated twice for an Oscar, Miss Sloane has again put Chastain on many critics' short lists for a Best Actress nod." This sentence declares that Miss Sloane, not Jessica Chastain, has already received two Oscar nominations. But no nominations have yet been made for this year.

Any news on if and when this program will open up again? I was upset to learn 2 years ago the program was suspended, but there has not been an update since that I have found.

Re: “Idaho Man Sentenced for Bettencourt Dairy Animal Abuse

I live in Idaho and im sick after watching PBS Show on animal cruelty. I raised cows as a kid and cows DO have feelings. These people needed to be in prison! Not for days but years. Then they pass a law making it illegal to video the abuse. Fuckin shameful Idaho! I hate government ruining our lives.

Re: “Idaho State Police Underage Alcohol Sting: Most Businesses in Compliance But Adults Still Willing to Purchase Booze for Minors

Idaho is 1 of 13 states that have no provision in law to use persons under the age of 21 to do these stings.

It is extortion, using an agency of government, acting under authority of law, without having any authority under the law to conduct such stings. This qualifies under US. Title 18 as racketeering under color of law.

Furthermore a class action suit would be suitable in that this has been going on unchallenged for many years now, and effecting many thousands of business owners and their duped employee's.

I'm currently involved in the defense of such a sting and they are eager to dismiss the case with the stipulation we pay the $300 bond. I won't accept their offer.

Re: “Flotilla of 300-Plus Protest Snake River Dam System

We were lied to when they put in most of these damn dams. They said that the salmon runs would not be affected.

Zillions of taxpayer and utility payer dollars have gone into hatcheries, restocking and tanker trucking these fish in an attempt to "save" them. It's a travesty.

The damn damns need to go.

If the dam wasn't there, they could not of launch their kayaks.
