Re: “BYU-Idaho Bans 'Man Buns' On Campus

As long as I can still wear my magical underwear, I'm good. It gets cold, and the underwear keep my twig nice and warm!

Re: “Anti-Vaxx to the Max

Anti vaxxers should remove themselves from the herd. A 50 year longitudinal study would put this to rest nicely. Also, 50 year separation from anti science fu.dies would be refreshing.

Idaho is full of "tragic accidents" with nothing but prayers to fix them. Education is our only fix.

Re: “Anti-Vaxx to the Max

One might conclude by some of the comments here that certain individuals have had more than their fair share of toxic chemical laden vaccines.

Or, it could be the case of bored, reckless juveniles playing on their parent's computers.

Either way, there's a tremendous lack of intelligence involved in their contributions to this thread.

Vaccine preventable diseases do not exist. No vaccine has ever been proven a preventative for any disease.

Vaccine induced disease, injury, illness and death. Now we're onto something!

That's the problem with Cults, they make up the craziest rules. Good news is this Cult will change its mind when "man-buns" have majority support... ask any modern female or black person.

Re: “BYU-Idaho Bans 'Man Buns' On Campus

The man bun doesn't restrict someone from having a temple recommend, or taking the sacrament. Why should it even be a consideration when it comes to the 'honor code'? The Pharisees and Sadducees had all sorts of extra rules, what makes the honor code any different?

Re: “St. Luke's Magic Valley Confirms Child's Death Was Due to Receiving Wrong Medication

These incidences happen everyday in every state. It is not due to your thoughts of low standards of education in this state and as for students from Idaho going to out of state colleges, it happens every year with the new graduates of this state. Seems to me that you are gathering your information from an unreliable source, or you have no idea of what the real statistics are for graduates continuing on for higher education. As of this years report Idaho is 33rd on the list, much higher than your 49, may not be the best but sure is not the worse and as for grading practices we are ranked 20th, those are not bad numbers from what I can see, and all I have to say about your thoughts on our health care, students, professionals and Idahoans in general is if you don't like it here go somewhere else. We love it here and our children thrive and are very successful.

Re: “Anti-Vaxx to the Max

I'm not really a fan of vaccines myself, but more-so in the sense that I think newborns are given way too many vaccines in too short amount of time. Their systems aren't as able to tolerate such a high concentration of chemicals as older kids. It's dangerous, space them out over more time. However, every parent should be able to decide what's best for their kid. You want your kid vaccinated? Go right ahead. Don't force it on other children though.

Re: “BYU-Idaho Bans 'Man Buns' On Campus

Man buns are absurd. I'm not LDS, but this is awesome and I totally support it. The typical guy who has a man bun is a freaking annoying hipster anyways. Generalization, but so far in my experience it's proven to be true. I get pissed off when I have to drive through downtown Boise to get to the VA and see these idiots walking around everywhere. Wish I could cut 'em off myself.

Where did you get your statistics stating that these "accidents" are more common in Idaho than in other states?

Re: “St. Luke's Magic Valley Confirms Child's Death Was Due to Receiving Wrong Medication

Such "accidents" are more common in Idaho than in other states which is partly due to the low standards of education in this state. Only 10% of Idaho high school graduates go on to graduate from college so the majority of the work force in Idaho only have a high school education. I've observed and witnessed far too many careless and sloppy mistakes having to do with my own health care in Idaho which can be attributed to the very low standards set for Idaho students. Mediocre students = mediocre workers. My question is: Why is education such a low priority in Idaho? Idaho ranks #49 out of 50 states in dollars spent for education so it should be no surprise that such mediocrity is evident in the work force. I wonder too how many students from Idaho high schools are accepted at out-of-state colleges? Are the same low standards set for Idaho students reflected in the low acceptance rate of Idaho high chool students at out of date colleges?

Re: “Julie VanOrden

Why is educating our young people such a LOW priority in Idaho? Of the 50 states Idaho ranks #49 in terms of funding for education and only 10% of high school graduates in Idaho later graduate from college. If our young people are not adequately educated how are they to compete in the national and global market place? The US is falling behind Asian and European countries in education. How are we as a country to compete against a better educated and more qualified work force in the global economy? A 4-day school week is UNACCEPTABLE and we expect more for our students. If you are unwilling to advocate for education then perhaps you are not the right person for the job of representing Idaho voters in the House Education Committee. There is NO advantage to a 4-day school week for students and it is UNACCEPTABLE for Idaho's students and Idaho voters.

Re: “Anti-Vaxx to the Max

I realize that you're trying to be all cutsey with the rhyming title.

But it truly takes a special, rigid kind of fanaticism to lump in Carson--a pediatric neurosurgeon who actively vaccinates children with an outspoken wish to abolish non-medical vaccine exemptions--with those who are "anti-vax to the max."

I also know that where vaccine uptake rates are steadily rising in Idaho, by this article's own admission, that the state doesn't really fit the "anti-vax" bill either. Simply missing as much as one dose of one vaccine qualifies for a philosophical exemption in Idaho, and numerous parents vaccinate their children on delayed and selective schedules. So it is disingenuous for Dana Williams refer to children with exemptions as "unvaccinated” without providing a necessary break-down of the data.

Finally, the very real horrors of polio and the wonders of the IPV vaccine, both valid in my mind, should not be wielded to emotionally manipulate parents into full schedule compliance, including vaccinating their newborns and kindergartners for Hep B.

There are many ways to discuss vaccines, but the black-and-white thinking from this article, public health officials, and the comments is doing responsible parents no favors.

Re: “Days After Non-ESA Listing of Sage Grouse, Idaho Sues Feds Over Conservation Plan

Governor, I hope that if this becomes another expensive and fruitless lawsuit that the State of Idaho ultimately loses (there's been a lot of ideological freelancing by the Legislature and others lately, resulting in court cases that go nowhere), you'll be the first to reimburse the state and its taxpayers (us) for all of the costs.

Your line for payment forms to the right, just behind all of the "ag-gag" legislators. You'll need to produce three forms of identification ...

Re: “BYU-Idaho Bans 'Man Buns' On Campus

That's a bold statement to make about the hair style of Jesus or any of the Apostles since there is no physical description of height, weight, build, facial features or hair style. It's all assumption. So, you need to come up with something else about this stupid argument. Mullets were the norm for a while. They are stupid. So is hair in a bun if you are a dude. And saying it is the norm nowadays is also stupid. So was segragation, it doesn't mean it's okay if everyone is doing it.
