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

That's Idaho... believing that public lands belong to the state and (in Idaho) cattle interests. Give it a rest Idaho (B. Otter and the Idaho Cattlemen's Association), Idaho taxpayers are finally starting to realize that what they are getting comes out the backend of a cow....

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

@D Smith
(Continued)
It's comical that you find a few individuals choosing to wear a man bun is "cheapening the standards of the neighborhood." If it weren't for free-thinkers who dance to the beat of their own drum, 90% the art that we see daily in every aspects of our lives would not be there, from the clothes you wear to the car you drive. What a drab world one would live in without individuality. Their hair is in a neat bun, for fuck's sake! They aren't wearing assless chaps! God would be ashamed that this little issue is even an issue.

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

@D Smith: It's a Mormon thing because it's the rules of a Mormon ran university. To say that the kids could have gone to any other school shows how clueless you are about the world today. I'm from Twin Falls, Idaho and I certainly couldn't have gone to any other school due to financial reasons. I graduated from Boise State, but not because it was my first choice, but because it was my only choice. It costs tons of money for a student to move and live out of state who has just graduated high school, and then to attend a university where you more-than-likely are having to pay out-of-state tuition for. So yes, if they came from a wealthy family, of course they could attend any other school. Unfortunately, that's not usually the case. To have to attend "any other school" so that you can show an ounce of individuality is simply appalling. It's comical that you find a few individuals choosing to wear a man bun is "cheapening the standards of the neighborhood." If it weren't for free-thinkers who dance to the beat of their own drum, 90% the art that we see daily in every aspects of our lives would not be there, from the clothes you wear to the car you drive.

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

Jesus had long "extreme" hair. Hypocrites, commercialized religion, sexism is all Mormonism is. I'm Mormon I should know. I've requested multiple times to be ex-communicated. Can't seem to get out of the system. They keep on wanting to know where to send my "file".

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

Just when you think we have evolved socially and culturally here in the year 2015, shit like this happens and reminds you we still have miles and miles yet to go.
1.) Isn't Jesus depicted as having long hair? Oooooh, right, we're all about Joseph Smith, I forgot.
2.) BYU Honor Code states that men's hair should be "clean and neat, avoiding extreme styles of colors and trimmed above the collar leaving the ear uncovered." I'm assuming their hair is clean, it's clearly in a neat bun, and it is above the collar, leaving the ear uncovered.
3.) BYU boys: Is the lines of gender being crossed and making you question your sexuality?
4.) BYU girls: Is the man bun giving you impure thoughts, making it harder for those clean cut good-old-boys to take you out for a milkshake?
5.) Actually, yeeeah no, I get it. Man buns are so sexy and so distracting that they must be sent down from the devil himself from planet number 666.

Re: “Boehner Resigns As Speaker. How Does Labrador Fit Into U.S. House Shakeup?

I think our Raul "fits into the U.S. House shakeup" in much the same way as the sub-province of Labrador fits into Canada -- a barren, windswept, isolated, and hard-to-reach land of sparse activity and few people, on the extreme right fringe of the nation, which didn't even join the country of Canada until 1949, and even now remains remote from the mainstream of life in our friendly and moderate "good neighbor to the north".

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

How did this become a Mormon thing? 30,000 kids, who could have gone to any other school sign a pledge to follow strict guidelines. Eyes wide open...then a few say, hey that rule is no good, I will not conform...they get called on it and its open season on Mormons? Pathetic trolls. Try living in a neighborhood with an HOA and painting your hous pink...your neughbors pay not to see it. HOA is paid to enforce what we all agreed to...to not cheapen the standards of the neighborhood. Saying jesus had a blue house or God created blue exposes your patheticness...now go get a hobby.

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

Hahahaha it's because some morm guy couldn't pull a chick right after his mission and was threatened by all the hotness that another morm with the bun was bringing to the campus.

"My man bun brings all the girls to the yard!!"

As bad a look for men as bald on top with a long fringe caught up in a three hair ponytail.

Re: “Anti-Vaxx to the Max

Logic dictates if vaccines worked as touted, the vaccinated have nothing to fear of the unvaccinated. The flipside is, (scientifically factual) that the vaccinated can and do shed virus for weeks, even months post vaccination, hence putting others, (immune compromised) at serious risk.

You can keep the unvaccinated out of public schools, but you will find them in church, grocery stores, fast-food play areas, elevators, etc. So if you question the degree of protection of your child's vaccines, you would do well to keep them safe at home.

If vacines were safe and effective they would sell themselves. No need for mandates! As well, protection from liability for the manufacturers and those administering the shots would be a non issue.

Vaccination has been referred to as a type of rape. Makes perfect sense to me!

Do your research diligently! Keep an open and inquiring mind. There are updates out there! This is about your health and life, and that of your precious loved ones.

Read the serum package inserts. Straight from the horse's mouth!

I agree with the Mormons on this one! Should be banned everywhere, under threat of extreme punishment! Degenerates...

Re: “Idaho House Rep. Batt Won't Seek Reelection

Dear Representative Batt,

On your way out the door, could you write a check, payable to "State of Idaho", in partial reimbursement for the staff and court costs associated with defending the "ag-gag" bill in court (a bill that was patently unconstitutional even before the Legislature passed it, and was tossed out in a scathing legal opinion by Judge Winmill)?

I'm not asking for a lot -- just a token payment to indicate that Republicans still live by their own rules about limited government, less intrusion into the lives of the citizens, and keeping taxes low.

And thank you for your service to the State!

Gosh, you list a species … you get lambasted by the State of Idaho. You don't list a species and you extend faith that local conservation agreements and partnerships will work … you get lambasted by the State of Idaho.

Who's being duplicitous here?

"I'm shocked … shocked … to find that politics is going on here!"
