Re: “Red Out, Again

Bill, where do you get this tripe? Seriously? How is one who wants to live a peaceful self-sufficient agricultural lifestyle automatically a xenophobic gun nut? And living off the land makes one a parasite? Where is it you get your food Bill? It appears you're the unintelligent narrow-minded xenophobe of this story as you are clearly ignorant and fearful of those migrating to the region.

Re: “Mr. Cope's Cave: A Prayer for Cecil*

Cope,
Let us say a prayer for all the lives, human and animal and plant, sacrificed at the bloody hands of selfish, degenerate mutants. I hope the dentist has an eternal toothache in Hell. I've said too much.

Re: “Infornography

OK Bill, you do do researcher you. Don't need no steenkin conformation do you? Glad you made that clear before painting with such a broad brush. Without a single citation too. If you were a real journalist no one would hire you.

Re: “Mr. Cope's Cave: A Prayer for Cecil*

Trophy hunting, ANY trophy hunting. is a sin and a shame. It is an inexcusable, reprehensible blood sport and should be banned everywhere for all animals, regardless of the animal's fame.

Re: “Infornography

A conspiracy theorist is a person that questions the statements of known liars. -MHB

The government could easily *prove* beyond a shadow of a doubt that children died at Sandy Hook, but it has not; now why is that? Maybe your "clean" (dream world) internet can explain that to me, but I doubt it since the world's top scientists have *proven* Sandy Hook was a state-sponsored DHS drill-gone-real psyOp.

Re: “Mr. Cope's Cave: Silly, Silly, Stupid Things Gun Nuts Do

I'm an America living in Belgium. Guns are outlawed for most people, and I hardly hear of gun deaths. I can't raise my kid in America because of the paranoid insanity of the gun culture. It's a sickness.

Re: “Infornography

rodnchance, your reasoning is impeccable. Of course these are the reasons there is no Toxic Sewage Internet just for infornography. These people need their own algore. I suggest Dick-with-Ears Cheney. He is perfect for the job. Vice Presidents are the best for creating Internets of all types.

Re: “Minerva's Breakdown

Grrr. Whether a person decides to live it up or save it for marriage is entirely up to that person and no one else's business. Are there seriously still people trying to shore up their own self-esteem by shaming others about sex? People really still do that? "Trovada Whore"... How ridiculous. Just MYOB people, it isn't that hard.

Re: “Minerva's Breakdown

I hear this a lot in the gay community, online and in person. I don't get it. Why is there a stigma in taking one more step to ensure you don't get something as serious as HIV? I understand this may have come about from misuse, but if you're wrapping it and taking Truvada, applause to you! And let's not judge him for being sensitive to criticism because maybe you handle haters better, that's not fair or kind. We all value the opinions of our own communities differently, you have no idea how he feels, and you should applaud him for stepping up and considering that choice, Kate, not judge him like you're so much better.

Re: “Infornography

Re: “Minerva's Breakdown

Wow. No kidding- if you're not grownup enough to handle the words haters will throw at you, maybe you're not grown up enough to stick a penis in someone. Wrap that stick!! Keep the rest of the population safe.

Re: “Mr. Cope's Cave: Silly, Silly, Stupid Things Gun Nuts Do

The number of dislikes of my comment again confirm for me that readers of the BW have no or only very little concept of what sarcasm, irony, parody, and tongue-in-cheek commenting are all about. Idahoans in general take everything much too literally. Humor depends on all these things.

Re: “Red Out, Again

Cope, feel free to take your minority interest and move to mexico or any other 3rd world country where you will be greeted with open arms and your opinion to change the way things are done there will be heard, appreciated, and embraced. FOOL!

Re: “Framingham Idyll

I used to live next to Framingham. One of my kids went to Framingham State...for a semester. We shopped at Shoppers World in Framingham, first mega shopping complex. Am I better or worse off for my relationship to Framingham? I'm sorry you don't address these questions, John. Maybe in a future column?

Re: “Faith Value

Hello Bill. Interesting to read your comments on God. I’ll just observe that not all Methodists or others of similar mainstream inclinations, contrasted with those of a more conservative bent, are as you describe. There are many of the liberal-intellectual tradition that take a reasoned approach to faith, politics, ethics, philosophy, etc. Some of them, even many, wonder of wonders, probably vote Democrat. You no doubt recall the BW article you authored some years ago in which you interviewed a few Boise clergy of the tradition of which I speak.

Since you mention your mother's religious tradition, I recall how she certainly was genuine and sincere, and steadfastly observed her faith to the last. I'll also note that her theology was probably more conservative than even the average Methodist, though she typified many who came of age in the 1920s and 30s.

Thanks for articulating your position. I may not hold to your views regarding faith, but still appreciate your creativity and the clever way you provide a counterbalance in the interesting, unique religio-political climate of Idaho.

Re: “Mr. Cope's Cave: Silly, Silly, Stupid Things Gun Nuts Do

Yup tis sad and concerning all those people died Bill. Now, take away ALL the guns and we can do what happened in Russia, China and German (just to name 3). Between 1941 and 1944 how many died because the German Government took all the citizen's guns away? Bill, I am one of those "doofas" types you have so much hatred for. Let me ask you these simple questions. Will you, as a citizen of the United States defend me with your very life, to the last breath so that I may voice my opinion, live free and come and go as I choose? Will you do this sir without regards to my faith, my color, my political belief, by sexual orientation my gender or anything that may identify me as not like you and as a "doofus". I didn't think so. I will do so for you in a heart beat even though I think you are an ass.
