Re: “Idaho Legislator, Sponsor of Anti-Sanctuary Bill: 'I've Been Called Things That Wouldn't Be Printable'

Having grown up in CA where ILLEGALS are everywhere AND cost the taxpayers a LOT of money each year, I agree with this bill. So-called "sanctuary cities" that PROTECT those being harmed are one thing, but these are not those type of cities. These are trying to protect persons who BROKE THE LAWS OF AMERICA and NOT those who came here LEGALLY and deserve the chance to a better themselves and their families. They also violate FEDERAL LAW, which the liberals usually claim is superior to state law. I know people who came here LEGALLY, spent THOUSANDS of dollars and many long years to become CITIZENS. They would be appalled at these cities protecting those who refused to follow the same rules they CHOSE to.

Too bad Idaho citizens have to endure such a hateful ignorant "lawmaker".....he should be, but probably won't be, ashamed for such a position.

Re: “UPDATE: Idaho House Kills Bill That Would Outlaw Lottery's Electronic Touch-Tabs

Anti-Trust laws need to be implemented on the World Wide Monopolized Media, mostly fake news coming from these monoliths...Part them out and sell them off. As for your Hitler comment Hitler was not elected by the people he took power by force, like the rioters brown shirts in the streets today for example Berkeley California suppressing free speech....... When you report Fake News and incite the people to riot it has consequences called sedition..

Re: “It's Back: Anti-Sharia Law Measure Resurfaces at Idaho Legislature

An utter waste of time and taxpayer money. Under no circumstance would any foreign law ever supercede domestic law on U.S. soil. Such legislation is redundant and serves only to occupy space.

Re: “Lottery Bills Surface at Idaho Statehouse Aimed at Anonymity and Procurement Rules

Seriously? When you win a significant amount of money, you must change your phone number, email, even address (you can change the name on deed or county records). There should at least be referrals for winners to follow a procedure to keep the scammers to a minimum. There will always be the scammers, unfortunately

Re: “Otter Still Waiting for Trump's Call

George: Ag is nowhere near 20% of Idaho's economy. That is a commonly repeated myth that is easily debunked by visiting the BEA website. Agriculture, forestry, fishing, farming accounted for $3.508 bb in GDP out of Idaho's total $65.549 bb in total GDP in 2005.

Re: “More Heather Scott Melodrama at Idaho Statehouse: Five GOP Legislators Ask to Be Removed From Committees

For as long as most of us can remember, the GOP has had a "super majority" in the Legislature, and pretty much calls the shots. I believe at its root, the local Legislative Soap Opera is a microcosm of the power struggle in the GOP, between the "establishment" group and the "Neo-Republicans."

I suspect that the Bigwigs will beat those rebels into submission, and get back to their traditional Establishment GOP Legislatin' (and ignoring the Democrat minority), in fairly short order.

Re: “Punished After Claiming Female House Members Trade Sex for Power, Rep. Heather Scott Issues Statement: 'I Call It Like I See It'

She's being punished because she is a woman. The men say much worse than that. What about the Rep for Idaho's corporate group last year who made horrible statements and was protected.

Re: “AP: Idaho Department of Ed Drafted, Then 'Scrapped,' Teacher Evaluation Deal With Same Firm That Audited Current System

As many school administrators and the auditors themselves have said this was to see what was being done two years ago so that they had a baseline. Most of the current requirements were not in place so it was expected that there would not be compliance yet.

Re: “Official Ballot Recounts in Eastern Idaho Result in Zero Change

Considering our enforce state Constitution, Guthrie shouldn't even remain in our legislature for his "immoral behavior," not to mention that he has been a "failure" for years. In fact, I wrote our beloved Attorney General about the Constitution requirement and Guthrie's known behavior. The AG has yet to respond at all....

And, I must frankly admit, Nye is simply a pompous, arrogant fool.

Consider the basis of state governance failures: Our "simple majority voting concept" has over the years simply allowed an inept collection of an utter ship-of-foolish-hollow men and women. Our citizenry remains basically uninformed and quietly enslaved by blatantly embarrassing governance.

We sorely need a "Mr. Trump" within our state.

Re: “Lone North Idaho Democratic Legislator Warns of GOP Push for Public Lands Takeover

I don't agree with state take over for they will be sold off to highest bidder we'll know fact ! But what needs done is the lands in Idaho should be managed by idaho people not from the east or from another bunch of people that do not live here an understand how we want them manage . As well be under a blank system of big brother government an mishandle as well . It's been handle that way now an that's the main reason why so many want it control by state personal. Let's keep it public but not controlled by corporations an rich outside people. Well balanced between state an Feds would work

Re: “Twin Falls Legislator Pushes Back Against Refugee Resettlement

One thing to note: The government has said that THEY have NO way to vette the refugees, specifically Syrian. So Carol and others who chastise others need to do to do the same of doing your homework. That is why a large part of Americans do NOT want them here, because it is a guarantee that there ARE terrorists using this huge relocation to get into OUR nation. That also means that they are in YOUR backyards as well. You want facts, how about Sharia Law over-ruling OUR nations laws just because they feel they have the right. Look at Texas. Its one thing to try and assimilate when you live in another country. It IS their choice to come here, for safety or whatever the reason. It is THEIR responsibility to learn and follow OUR countries laws, not their their own. There are innocents but there are also those who will do all they can to continue the war that has been going on in Syria and other countries, and ARE bringing it to America! Think on that. The safety of America is no longer, that for generations we have lived comfortably. We can no longer just be complacent!
