Good for Latin America.
If the controllers have Hellary in mind for 2016 then they plan to have her ride the horse to the ground.
This will undoubtedly lead to a long gap until there's a similar gender president.
If I remember correctly, the Republicans in the United States supported aparthied. Reagan called Mandela a terrorist. It is pretty much the same now. Meaning the feelings the Republicans had then still applies today. Mandela changed a country, it's too bad the Republicans can't follow suit.
I believe that the ultimate answer is for a new labor movement with a whole new approach to this problem is in order. Instead of fighting the old fight of trying to convince business owners and government to pay workers more, workers of all levels...service and manufacturing sectors should follow the lead of what the US Steel Worker Union is doing and seek to form a hook-up to the successful Mondragon Corporation (MC). The MC employs about 90K people worldwide and the workers are the actual owners of MC. They set all of the rules re pay and stratums. They do not allow for the pay scale to exceed a 9 fold ceiling over the lowest paid worker. They provide awesome health care and they actually operate their banks.
What this means is that there is enormous potential to take the fight to a new ground where success can be realized. If enough people were to join in, or even form their own mirror co-owned operations, it would be big enough to swamp the current corrupt system and create a new model of economic mobility. It could be a regional effort, with its own reflective cultures and values, so as not to seem like it is just becoming another monolithic monster.
We also need to end the FED and its criminal interest for nothing robbery of our economy. We need to go back to debt-free money, not gold or silver backed (that doesn't work either), but just as the Constitution originally laid out.
The greatest freedom fighter of all time; he first belonged to South Africa and then to the rest of the world. Thank you Mr. Mandela for showing us what forgiveness is all about.
I do not have a problem with simplicity and also brightening the short days of December with some colorful lighting and a bit of sparkle . It brightens my mood and fills my heart with cheer, which I can then give to others in a smile and with a message of love. I think Jesus would be okay with that.
Who will be Palestine's first post-apartheid president?
This is just a continuation of the same old con being applied to younger people.
This scam includes the triumvirate of the government, the 'higher' education industry and banking loan sharks.
And the game is 'Get 'em in debt and you Own 'em for life'.
The goal here is to get young people in debt as early as possible to get them use to being saddled with time payments and thus trapped in wage slavery.
The government/banking perpetrators of this scam fully realize that the heavy debt load students come out of college with, insures that they'll need to take on more debt just to cover basic living expenses as well as to become good consumers.
This means more interest profit over additional years to extract from the debt holder.
Greed does the rest:
As the more prestigious colleges raise their tuition fees, all of the colleges lower on the prestige scale raise their fees.
The students going through the system want to come out of college with the best possible earning potential, so they take on the exorbitant debt.
And Voila' they're literally saddled with these huge debts, many with little or no current prospect of paying them off.
With the economy still actually in depression, more and more graduates are understandably delinquent with their payments.
This debt bubble is just one more headed for a crash.
Thank you for putting the address in the digital addition. You might want to do the same in the print addition. A common problem in BW ads and articles
I cannot say enough good things about the Boise VA. The professionals who work there are caring, compassionate, dedicated and take the time to listen. I'm not a veteran of the Iraqi war….but I am a Vietnam veteran. I did my year in Southeast asia, I came home to the proverbial spitting and yelling….taunting….accusations….threats…whatever. I packed away my uniforms and went on with my life. I'm one of the lucky ones who didn't have the strain of PTSD. I don't know why it didn't affect me….I'm lucky, I guess. To "Watcher" above, you sure know how to analyze the policies of this country…..my best guess is you have never served in the military, or your country in any way for that matter. I'm not smart enough to challenge you with words….I'm just a guy who loves his country and is willing to fight for it.
Perhaps you could volunteer some time to help the diplomacy of the U.S.
I hear there is an opening in Bengazi.
Having Medicaid is like being a cash cow, for some Doctors and treatment places, especially things like mental health. Oh sure I'm a good pipeline for the Medicaid money but the quality of care from alliance Family Services of Idaho, and two of their PSR's dang near put me into bankruptcy. But hey, Medicaid paid for it. Lets get Medicaid a quality control advisor or call line going. Allow us as patients to call in and gripe about care as well as congradulate those service providers that does a great job.
And to Think Treasure Valley Cable TV Channel, ran me out of there because they considered my content too risky. If you want to see a cable access channel done right look over Vision12 in Pocatello. That one has got its stuff together. Oh by the way TVCTV, want somebody to get you back on track? Give me a call. I'll do it free.
Good to see that family get some exposure like this. Nice people. I love browsing and shopping at their quaint little boutique store.
And don't forget KTSY, 89.5 FM. They have been playing Christmas music throughout the month of December for years and years, long before any other Treasure Valley stations did. A marketplace should include fare for everyone, from the most cynical Scrooges to the most hopeful Tiny Tims. I'm glad Boise provides a rich variety.
With the real unemployment rate at 23%, these workers don't have a lot of leverage for wage increases.
The Business Class likes unemployment to be high for this reason. No leverage.
And here's the kicker for these wage slaves, and something that the Business Class in Idaho really salivates over:
Idaho is a 'Right to Work (for less) State' and following are the Labor Laws in the Great (labor loving) State of Idaho:
IDAHO LAW DOES NOT REQUIRE:
Vacation, holiday, severance or sick pay
A discharge notice or a reason for discharge
Rest periods, breaks, lunch breaks, holidays off or va-
Premium pay rates for weekends or holidays worked
Pay raises or fringe benefits
A limit on the number of hours an employee can work
per day or week for employees 16 years of age or older
So Good Luck Folks! You'll Need It!
I feel that Richard Leavitt was not taken seriously and already on the cross.. follow the money trail you will find who really lead this mans execution to fruition..Dear God forgive them for they know not what they do...and who are "they" in this one?

Hi, thank you for running this story. We wondered if it was going to run.
First, DeWayne served in Iraqi. That correction is vital.
Second, my name has 2"n's" Names are valuable. Jeannette
I appreciate the first person's comments. Our life has lots of disturbing moments. More then I care to admit somedays. I know our family is not the only one, that there are countless others. Our hope is that others will see this article and reach out for help from somewhere from someone. We know we can't reach all in need, but we can reach out to anyone listening. Healing comes in some many different forms. My hope is that others will find what works for them. If we can be a part of that, then we will be honored to have helped.
Let the poor get sick & die. The sooner the better! Vote Repulsican! Vote for real Christian Values!
"In order for Syrian officials’ war crimes and crimes against humanity to be prosecuted by the International Criminal Court, the UN Security Council must refer Syria to the ICC. Pillay has previously called upon the Security Council to do that, but it is believed that Russia and China would veto such a move."
This seems to be SOP for Security Council members.
Veto's have also been used to block the prosecution of 'war crimes and crimes against humanity' against the Palestinians by Israel and against the Iraqi's by the US.
So much for Human Rights.
