Re: “Idaho GOP Will Jump Super Tuesday Gun With Primary One Week Earlier

They can vote all they want but since the GOP hasn't one good idea on the table, it's pretty much all for naught.

Re: “Land Board to Boost Contributions to Idaho's Public Schools in FY 2017

These lands, one is a bar in downtown Boise, don't pay property taxes? I hope some of the money can be directed to the school in Mountain Home that is dire need of repair? Or maybe some of the Lottery money could be directed towards its repair as that was the MA
IN reason for the lottery in Idaho! REMEMBER

Re: “Federal Judge Slaps State of Idaho With Sanctions in Blistering Ruling Over Prison Cover-Up

Many, if not most, inmates suffer from mental health problems, whether they be genetic or environmentally induced. Idaho is infamous for childhood abuse, physical and mental. So just put the abused out of sight? Subject them to inhuman conditions that are sins and shames? ENOUGH!!

Re: “Idaho Dems Pick New Party Chairman

I want to know Marley's view on the oil & gas industry coming into the state and especially here into the Treasure valley. Will he oppose fracking and stand up for citizen's property rights and the preservation of our water and air here?

Re: “Idaho Board of Ed Approves Fast-Track Admissions to State Public Colleges/Universities

I remember when President Obama suggested this to all states. Actually, he said that every student should move on to some kind of post high school training or education. Who said that the GOP never learns?

Nothing this Thug Idaho Government does surprises me anymore.
What will it take to start sending people to prison? Any "regular" person who steals a Latte' gets charged with a Felony, yet our elected officials get away with stealing millions and lying about it.

It also should be mentioned that when a inmate is placed in those dry cells they are watched by a paid inmate 24 hours a day. Another inmate is paid by the state to keep an eye on you, while you poop, pee, (in a small hole in the ground) eat, sleep ect.

Nobody will of course. The wealthy don't have to serve time for their crimes just donate to the right places.

Nothing more criminal than the criminal justice system.

So prey tell, who is going to jail for this intentional conspiracy to commit fraud?

Re: “U.S. Court Judge Strikes Down Idaho Ag-Gag Law: 'The Remedy is More Speech, Not Enforced Silence'

Gathering video footage is a form of freedom of speech. I am thrilled he was brave enough to rule it unconstitutional because that is exactly what it is. The public deserves to see how their food is raised. The industry would not be willing to spend millions of dollars to get the ag-gag law passed if they did no have anything to hide. It would be absolutely insane if people were not able to see where their food comes from.

This is very bad. Employers will cut base pay so they still have the same overhead.

The Idaho Legislature should have learned the lesson by now that it's not good to tilt at Winmills.

Gay marriage, and now this. Otter is taking a beating! Idaho is becoming more progressive, against his best efforts.

Re: “U.S. Court Judge Strikes Down Idaho Ag-Gag Law: 'The Remedy is More Speech, Not Enforced Silence'

The Memorandum Decision and Order says the entire statue is invalidated: "the Court finds that § 18-7042 violates the First Amendment right to free speech. In addition, the Court finds that § 18-7042 violates the Equal Protection Clause because it was motivated in substantial part by animus towards animal welfare groups, and because it impinges on free speech, a fundamental right."

I love Judge Winmill, his decisions are wise! A certain few people think that he is an 'activist judge,' and needs to be removed. I say, here in Idaho (especially) we NEED judges such as he.

Re: “U.S. Court Judge Strikes Down Idaho Ag-Gag Law: 'The Remedy is More Speech, Not Enforced Silence'

While for the most part I agree with this being struck down, the claim in reference to their presence at the auction that, 'But if a 2014 measure pushed through the Idaho Legislature and signed into law by Governor C.L. "Butch" Otter had been in effect at the time, we would have faced up to a year behind bars and fines of up to $5,000' is simply NOT true.

Unless the auction was closed to the public, the law would not apply.

From what I can see of the bill it is overall a good bill. Section "d" of the bill needs to be removed though. So that being said, does this Judges ruling invalidate the whole bill or only section "d" of said bill?
