Re: “Idaho Panel Will Consider 'Convention of the States' Proposal to Amend U.S. Constitution

Unfortunately there's so much incorrect and biased information in the media and in opponents comments, the nature, structure and operation of an actual Article V convention has been lost in the negative propaganda.

Re: “It Just Gets Nuttier: Idaho Legislature Will Consider Robot Bill

They might as well do something, since they've already fully funded education and the road-repair costs that resulted from our long winter. Good thing they didn't coddle millionaires with a tax cut.

Oh, that didn't happen? Oh, I forgot, this is Idaho, the "whoopie cushion of states".

Re: “Prosecutor Says Dietrich High Assault Not Sex or Race Crime, Teen Pleads Guilty to Lesser Felony

"It's not our belief that this was a racially motivated crime. This was more of a vulnerable victim-motivatedcrime. I think it probablywould have happened to anybody that was in the same kind of circumstances and mental state as the victim here."

Oh, so that's alright then is it? If someone is a vulnerable victim, it is sort of their fault for attracting violent bullies.

Everyone who cares, please sign the petition at change.org to bring this case to proper justice. The sentence as it stands is an outrage against justice.

And while it appears from reports that the perpetrator accepts that he committed the crime of which he is accused, he will be permitted to maintain his innocence after completion of probation and have his record wiped clean.

Call the crime racist, call it a hate crime, call it a felony, whatever. A trusting, disabled child had a coat hanger inserted then kicked into his rectum by people he regarded as his friends. These same friends who had taught him to sing a song abusing racial minorities. He expressed that he had never experienced such pain before. He has several times attempted suicide since the assault. He is currently in a hospital.

Re: “Resistance is Textile: Inside the Boise State Exhibition 'Crafting Resistance'

Looking at the previous comments reminds me of the way my brother was treated and harassed when the US Navy sent him to Idaho for schooling and training to be stationed on the first nuclear submarine, the USS Nautilus (SSN-571). It looks as though some residents of Idaho are still as bigoted an ignorant as they were way back in the 1950s. Does anyone remember "Archie Bunker"? Signed: J. D. Furlong

Let's see how they work in SLC or Portland. Could go either way - very good/very bad.

Immigration raids yield jobs for legal workers

'When federal agents descended on six meatpacking plants owned by Swift & Co. in December 2006, they rounded up nearly 1,300 suspected illegal immigrants that made up about 10% of the labor force at the plants.

But the raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents did not cripple the company or the plants. In fact, they were back up and running at full staff within months by replacing those removed with a significant number of native-born Americans, according to a report by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS).

"Whenever there's an immigration raid, you find white, black and legal immigrant labor lining up to do those jobs that Americans will supposedly not do," said Swain, who teaches law and political science."

Alabama had to bite the bullet and hire LEGAL Immigrants for its AG Industry:

Africans Relocate to Alabama to Fill Jobs After Immigration Law

"East Coast began calling Atlanta refugee agencies several months ago looking for legal immigrants to come to Alabama for a year, said Mbanfu, refugee employment director for Lutheran Services in Atlanta. He said the company would have taken as many refugees as he could refer. The agency connected East Coast with refugees who had been in the country three to five years, he said."

Re: “Idaho Agriculture, Dairy Groups Call for Immigration Reform in Hostile Political Climate

The U.S. currently has eleven non immigrant guest worker visa programs.
http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/engl…

There is no cap on the number of workers allowed into the U.S. under the H-2A temporary agricultural guest worker visa program.

http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/263529-…
"The provision could more than triple the number of H-2B visas for foreign workers seeking jobs at hotels, theme parks, ski resorts, golf courses, landscaping businesses, restaurants and bars. The move is intended to boost the supply of non-agricultural seasonal workers."

Re: “Idaho Agriculture, Dairy Groups Call for Immigration Reform in Hostile Political Climate

Don't worry BigAg, there are new robots coming online to replace your already robot wage competing immigration labor. (See other BW story) Once there are enough downward pressures on the concept of living, due to the elimination of the poor and middle class' right to exist, there will no longer be a need for BigAg. You will then only need to feed the 1%. Problem solved.

Re: “It Just Gets Nuttier: Idaho Legislature Will Consider Robot Bill

IF...they actually get these things out in public, and the novelty wears off, these things will become targets for vandalism, theft and outright rage. They won't be able to operate where they can be easily targeted. They will be for foo foo zones (Downtown) only. Not to mention all of the times people will run them over by accident. I used to be a downtown walk delivery guy. I could interact with the customers and enhance the business-client relationship. These things are purely labor replacement robots. Bottom line calculations that will reduce humanity to a absolute number, which is where we've been going all along.
