A children's game played by grown men so they can get an education. Anyone see anything wrong with this concept? If you don't, you are the problem.
Saftypays: Otter is Catholic. How do you account for him getting past the "Mormon Mom" as you called it?
Well, who can dispute a study, about the auto industry, created by an organization closely intertwined with the auto industry.
By golly, they would certainly have ready access to the facts, now wouldn't they.
And those funding sources....any of those come from the TBTF banks?
And gee, there's that 'free fall' paranoia card played once again, just for good measure.
"We saved your butts folks and don't forget it the next time we fleece...er...save you."
As far as preventing "the U.S. from (going from) a recession into a depression", Alan needs to come out of the penthouse and take a better look at what's actually happening.
Alan, rub a couple extra brain cells together and picture what 50 million people in bread lines would look like.
Alan, by the way, have you taken a look at Motor City lately?
Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics
Ahhhh, career politicians and their arrogance.
What more can an unenlightened citizenry ask for and consistently vote for.
This has got to be somehow intertwined with some perverse distortion of Stockholm Syndrome.
When all else fails, follow the money.
The fraud perpetrated by this person is to be condemned and deserves punishment to set an example for others, to discourage them from committing similar illegal acts of fraud.
Unfortunately, in a culture that celebrates committing fraud, theft, and the Big Con, 'setting an example' has very little effect in terms of discouragement.
In this culture 'the loser' is the person that didn't get away with the fraud or other theft.
Just recall the Wall Street banksters that got away with and are still getting away with fraud to the tune of billions.
How about the Pentagon, which 'misplaced' trillions when McNamara was Secretary of War.
The list could go on and on.
The problem with this fraudster unlike the fraud committed by the banksters on Wall Street is that she clearly didn't have the means or the ability to trade a cash settlement for the avoidance of a trial.
Wall Street Club talk: "Greed is Good" and "Fraud is Good"
"Somethin' for nothin' and the Chicks are Free"
Nobody should be surprised about this.
This is an organization that has been given free rein to treat airline passengers with little or no respect by groping them right down to 'feeling up' their genitals.
Given the utter contempt for individual privacy and decency that the TSA organization sanctions, it's no wonder that it attracts numerous employees that are abusive, oblivious, contemptuous, and often not the sharpist tools in the shed.
The brighter agents probably realize that if they can get away with horrible abuses of the passengers, then they can game the TSA organization itself.
What's even more unfortunate here is that there hasn't been a huge reaction by the flying public concerning these abuses by the organization and its agents.
The vast majority of flyers move through the abusive cattle chutes and prodding, calm as Hindu cows.
If nothing else, this is a testament to the ability of the controllers to manipulate the public into total control and subservience.
Folks, it's time to wake up to the reality here!
Here we go again.
The old 'Misplaced Priorities' game.
“We are 49th or 50th for per-pupil spending.”
And Wow! 'Task Force to Improve Education in Idaho'
These distractions always miss the foundational 'misplaced priority' of public education.
Just maybe, since the foundational problem with public education is never addressed, those 'showing their concern for improvement' are either ignorant of the problem or complicit in supporting the problem.
If you've done any investigation into the history of the US public education system, you know that the Rockefeller Foundation's General Education Board was the prime driver in its creation.
Rockefeller’s foundation was about systematizing us.
In 1913, the Sixty-Second Congress created a commission to investigate the role of the Carnegie and Rockefeller foundations, and of other corporate families. After a year of testimony it concluded:
"The domination of men in whose hands the final control of a large part of American industry rests, is not limited to their employees, but is being rapidly extended to control the education and social services of the nation."
And so it still goes.
The real crisis, or shall we say, travesty in education goes far deeper than the lack of enough funding.
The whole system has been intentionally designed to produce a compliant, pliable laboring class to supply the corporations with workers to generate wealth for the business and ruling classes.
The primary reason for the current deterioration of the system is directly related to the shifting of corporate production to other more compliant, more pliable, lower paid wage slaves in countries with social contracts similar to those desired by the 'compassionate' conservatives in this country.
Therefore, the corporations no longer have the need they originally did for legions of wage slaves in the US and funding for 'education' is gradually drying up.
The increasing debt and joblessness of today's college graduates is just another result of this current reality.
It's about time that the masses snapped out of the 'we just don't have enough money' trance and took a look at the real issues.
Folks, we're running out of time here.
Ditto. The guy from St. Louis is making his way around. Joe Parisi. Younger guy who's some kind of artist.
The AGC of Idaho will help Otter no matter what because if you look at who gets the state const. projects whatever they spend they get back 10 fold. Corruption runs ramped in Idaho state contracting and will continue as long as the republicans are in charge. By the way Popkey couldn't investigate the crack in his own ass. Fulcher will never be elected he's not part of the Mormon Mob and will be forgotten the day after the primary.
@ boisesucks I have learned that it is never a city a city that sucks but the negative people in it.
Do not condemn a restaurant with the worrd "chain" if you have never eaten in one.
I looked online at Chandler's menu, Ruth's Chris serves larger steaks at a lower price, I think that makes it a better deal, if you are going to a fine restaurant to save money.
They also do a complete 3 course dinner with a side dish for 42.95-49.95.
There's no doubt that the changes that happened in South Africa needed to happen.
And Mandela was certainly instrumental in those changes.
And deserves recognition for his contributions.
What's also a fact is that a key part of his participation in those changes involved terrorism.
He was a leader of the African National Congress (ANC), an organization designated a terrorist group by the U.S. State Department and many governments and intelligence agencies.
He was also a co-founder of the ANC’s Umkhonto we Sizwe (Spear of the Nation), a militant terrorist group within a terrorist group.
He was tried and convicted for his terrorist and subversive activities within those organizations.
So....what's particularly interesting about the adoration given the man, is that it supports the use of terrorism to gain one's aims....as long as those aims are deemed lofty by those giving adoration.
This is quite an act of hypocrisy coming from those living in countries that are supposedly fighting a 'War on Terror' around the world.
This just lends credence to the idea that 'One group's terrorist may be another group's freedom fighter'.
Straight up can't take you seriously because of the title.
Since you seem to have no knowledge of what bipolar disorder is, I automatically you assume you have no knowledge of the United States' policies regarding the middle east.
watcher: there's a difference between the country that invades other countries and the people that country uses to do it. American "herd mentality" in terms of war goes the opposite way that you think it does: the country goes to war and pays other people to do it. Don't blame the fighters for the horrors your country--you, the civilian--wanted to commit but have not the gall to do yourself.
SSG Dill: it's easy to prove service. Scan a copy of DD214 and show it to the world. Without that, her suing for libel and defamation would only result in her landing in jail.
Why would anyone pay to listen to Taylor Swift or Rocci Johnson? Thank goodness they are "above board", because ain't no one in their right mind wanna catch that "high profile" nastiness with her (?) pants down! Not even 31 years ago. Gross.
Well it is a done deal, the wheels have been turning. The Boise School District sold the property to Boise City. Dezaad, you are correct that West Boise City neighborhoods may be in the Meridian School District.
With all this meth on the streets, I would say that the war on drugs isn't working. In fact, it's a complete failure (unless you are one of the many institutions that profit off this war.)
There are more drugs at cheaper prices now than at any other time in US history and our prisons overflow with these non violent drug offenders.
Drug addiction isn't a crime. It's a medical and mental illness. It's time we stopped criminalizing a disease. Would you put someone in jail for cancer or heart disease?
No one in wealth wants an educated Idahoan. They want cheep slave labor and huge tax breaks or these politicians won't get their campaign contributions.
Idaho is the Deep South of the Northwest, a Confederate State from its very inception (Hence why there is an Atlanta in Idaho. So there would always be an Atlanta.) It should come as no wonder that our educational system is set up to feed the prison system. Hence why more money is allocated to law enforcement and prisons than towards educating our youth.
Idaho, You are being played for a bunch of suckers.
Frank R... The taxpayers are paying who, exactly, for the Franklin School Parcel? Think about your answer. You guessed it, hopefully. The taxpayers are paying the taxpayers. In essence, then, "The taxpayers" are not out any money at all, and so no one is "paying for it again". This is a ridiculous criticism with no logic whatsoever.
There is, however, a nuance to this. The Boise City taxpayers are paying the Boise School District taxpayers, which is not strictly speaking the same set of taxpayers. There is large overlap, but some Boise City neighborhoods have never paid anything at all for the school property. So it is quite right and proper that the transfer come in the form of a transaction.
Let's see the Boise property owners, (Tax Payers) paid for the Boise School district parcel years ago. So now Mayor Bieter and the Council members want the Boise property owners, (Tax Payers) to PAY for it again?! We don't need the Best Politician in Boise we need a GOOD Leader
