Re: “Simpson Tops Idaho Members of Congress in NRA Donations

Angle of the story is wrong. All four of them are in about the same place as Frank Church was on the political spectrum. Meaning the GOP has drifted mildly left of center since Church, and the Dems are now full on Socialists. (No, they are not the caliber of the late great Frank Church, just pointing out the philosophy drift of the two main parties.) Bernie is a Social Democrat which is a nice way to say Communist. Hillary and Bill are just selfish criminals that could belong to either party. Long story short, a political party change is not going to solve the issue of unsupervised violent young mentally ill criminals... might make the problem worse by giving them even more powerful rights?

This event was perpetrated by a well known identified and predicted problem child who the current system of laws and personal rights does not allow to be placed in a LONG TERM mental lockup for violent crazies. We need to change those laws immediately. A violent crazy person/child needs to lose their rights and be safely housed away from society. As it is now they are mainstreamed and the other kids and teachers suffer from it.

Re: “Two Boise TV Stations: Two Differing, Emotional Opinions on Roadside Memorials

I would like to write a review on a new business that just opened up in the Boise area. It is not a positive review, but I feel it is my obligations to warn others of my personal experience. It has caused me nothing but grief and a ton of $$$, What happened to me is living nightmare. I feel it is my obligation to warn others.

New Law. Any money given to a politico must be immediately forwarded to the constituents in his/her district. Gifts must be sold an proceeds distributed as well.

Re: “Simpson Tops Idaho Members of Congress in NRA Donations

Citizens did see something and did say something. https://nypost.com/2018/02/16/fbi-failed-to-investigate-tip-on-school-shooter-last-month/

These crimes always turn out to be a cocktail of several visible known problems and there are always a bunch of people who expected it. The Las Vegas crime was one of the few exceptions. No doubt the system is broken. No magic button to fix it.

Also, why no mention in most of these news stories about all the mind warping pills these crazies were taking. Big Pharma is a very a powerful congressional lobby and probably the biggest advertiser during TV news casts. Is that why?

Re: “Cold Shoulder: Idaho Legislature Committee Censors Climate Change

How does lowering the quality of education and encouraging scientific illiteracy make "America great again"?
And unsurprisingly, those who deny climate change typically deny evolution as well. I guess the expectation is for America to climb the index rankings via the power of prayer?

Since much of homelessness is associated with mental illness, why not focus on providing sufficient care for the mentally ill? When homelessness became an issue in the early 1980s, dozens of surveys of the homeless found that severe mental illness was the most common factor: just a few years after the ACLU completed its process of destroying the state mental hospital systems.

Re: “City of Boise Official Diana Lachiondo Announces Candidacy for Ada County Commission

I would also like to point out that this is one of the many powerful Boise City people who has been renting and filling halfway houses in your neighborhood without telling you first. "Surprise Fred the perverted felon is living next door, and you are paying his rent". Oh Boy! Isn't this progress wonderful!

So, Don't be sucked in by the cute looks. She's a committed liberal and you are gonna pay your hard earned money to have your neighborhood degraded by her liberal projects if she gets elected.

Re: “Cold Shoulder: Idaho Legislature Committee Censors Climate Change

Except the problem remains, what Fred said is correct. Has anyone seen AlGore's power consumption? Jet fuel consumption? Carbon Footprint?

These guys are TOTAL hypocrites consolidating power and reducing our freedoms. They do it the easy way by convincing us to limit ourselves. For example: They've got most of you commoners convinced the power-ball lottery is less risk than owning Amazon stock. Just think if you would have bought AMZN when under $2 years ago instead of that ATV you'd be a millionaire now.

It's an ingenious plot to regain the 99:1% two-class balance enjoyed by the aristocracies for 1000 years before Jefferson and Franklin screwed it all up!

Don't be so stupid people, I'm embarrassed for you. You are falling for the same bullcrap over and over again! For generations... OMG so stupid!

Luv,

Robin Hood

Re: “City of Boise Official Diana Lachiondo Announces Candidacy for Ada County Commission

Its important to Dave Bieter to have his drones control Boise, the highway district (ACHD), and Ada County.

In the event you are completely stupid or just new to the area:
-Boise City is entirely within Ada County.
-ACHD is the highway district and is 100% independent from either the county or the city.

But Why:
-The most powerful political machine in Idaho is Boise city Mayor Dave Bieter. He wants to control all three of these independent local governments so he can funnel as much money as possible to his developer friends. They've been using tax money to build private developments in Boise. The public funding takes the risk away from the developer, but the developer still profits.
-The concept is similar to the Daley family in Chicago.
-Bieter and his friends need to get total control over the fastest growing metro to eliminate resistance.
-Beware, the more he controls the higher your taxes will be and the more liberal your city will become.

Why Care? Boise is a place where it is still cheap to live well and with very low crime. Bieter and bots want to change all that... so they can make more money.

Re: “Cold Shoulder: Idaho Legislature Committee Censors Climate Change

Republicans love to keep their base uneducated and ignorant, this is just another vile example of that.
If climate change is a "hoax" why does the Pentagon see it as such a threat?

ID is already a flyover state with an economy run on potatoes. Way to keep the rest of the union believing there are nothing but hicks here and its future generations will stay that way.

Re: “Cold Shoulder: Idaho Legislature Committee Censors Climate Change

Bullcrap corporate statements vs. the reality of what they have done but don't want to take responsibility for. One of many many examples in links below (3M groundwater problem). This company bangs the global warming drum as a distraction from their reality. Many many other companies with super good PR babes pumping out the good vibes. Makes you feel like you are helping the planet when using their chemicals.

Because religion isn't "stupid shit."

Listen here, the best thing about Idaho is we ain't educated or knowledgeable about them things. You keep your facts in California and leave education to the bishops.
