Re: “Boise Police Aim to Win Hearts and Minds

If police want to improve the image of the department, phase out the black muscle patrol cars, stop receiving military equipment, and change the uniform to look like a citizens police force not para-military.

Re: “Idaho's Median Wage in 2014: $14.93 an Hour

Is this Groundhog Day?

More lies, damn lies and creative sheep manipulating statistics.

By now, anyone who doesn't know that the government statistics are smoke, is too mentally challenged or has had their head in the sand (ignore-ance). Local, State and the Federal governments hire people to massage statistics in order to make a bad situation look good or a good situation look bad, depending on the desired response from the sheep.

All it takes is a simple statistical manipulation to paint a smiley face on the real wage data. And what is that? Choose a tame deflator for your inflation adjustment. Real wage growth with the "correct" deflator is stagnant. In fact, if we use its cousin, the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W), the stagnation is actually worse.

Left unmanipulated, the statistics would no longer be rosy, and both the economy and our perception of the economy would tank.

The irony of relying on manipulation to prop up an economy, which is designed to serve parasitic vested interests, is the manipulation becomes permanent, as every participant in the manipulated system optimizes their behavior to exploit the manipulation.

Re: “Idaho Senate Passes Two Cannabis Bills to Assist Those Suffering From Epileptic Seizures

Jeremy Miller: There are over 66 known (so far) cannabidiol compounds in cannabis that can be formulated into over 500 medicines. While this particular oil is ideal for epileptics, a CBD oil with trace amounts of THC is needed to induce apoptosis (cell death) in cancerous tumor cells. And please...don't assume I don't do my research - it's my job to know.

Re: “Idaho House Majority Leader on Sweeping Change to Fuel, Grocery Taxes: 'Something For Everyone to Love, Everyone to Hate'

Something to remember--if you receive SNAP benefits, you are not eligible for the Idaho tax credit for yourself or your spouse. While you still receive it for dependents, I would still make the assumption that removal of the grocery sales tax would be a better deal.

Re: “Boise Police Aim to Win Hearts and Minds

At first glance this appears to be a good thing, but given the ever increasing formation of a police state in the land of the free, there is clearly the potential here for increasing the control of citizens.

These meetings are reminiscent of corporate meetings set up to have employees give input on suggestions and concerns about the company, which end up being the way the management collects data on who they need to suspiciously watch and/or find ways to terminate.

With all of the monitoring of citizens in this country now, and the broadening definition of terrorism to include prepers, patriots and activists, one would understandably be cautious about sharing concerns with the police about anything other than ‘suspicious characters’, which also ends up adding to the Stasi inspired, pre-crime obsessed police state, becoming more visible each year.

It’s important to keep in mind that the police, no matter how well intentioned, are tasked with monitoring and enforcing whatever twisted ideas of control and oppressive laws that are conjured up by the parasites, whose goal is to keep the lower classes from revolting against the increasing economic inequality and selective oppression that increases relentlessly with each passing year.

Re: “FEMA : Climate Change-Denying Governors Risk Withheld Funding

Then ask yourself why, in the end, God 'burns them with the heat of the sun'...

because they blackmailed us into paying cash for a lie about 'climate change' so they can use the money to control and blackmail others with more lies. These people are sick.

Re: “Idaho Senate Passes Two Cannabis Bills to Assist Those Suffering From Epileptic Seizures

Dear jewels in boise. THC is not the medical form of cannibus they are using for this treatment. The law makers in this state are against the "getting high" chemical we all know as THC. Please do some research on the medical applications of cannibus before stating incorrect information for others to read. Other wise good for them and us as this is a step in the right direction.

It's really time for the Idaho Constitution to be amended to allow a local-option tax.

Debt is not necessarily a bad thing. This state could expand/improve rapidly if it changed its misguided policy.

Good. We should charge him with the lives of those who died looking for him too. There really is no reason we should have traded for this coward. Clearly got the short end of the stick.

At least 5 soldiers where killed looking for this clown. The Art. 132 hearing will find him guilty hopefully and he spends the rest of his traitors behind in prison.
