Re: “Climate Strange: Idaho's Tug of War on Climate Change

Jon - I am truly mystified as to how you think addressing climate change would line my own pockets. It is the fossil fuel industry that is flooding politicians with campaign donations, and I can assure you they are not donating to my campaign.

Re: “Once in a Lifetime

I'd like to make a correction. While Boise experiences a 99% partial eclipse, that city is NOT inside the path of totality, the only area you can witness nature's greatest sight. Boise is very close to totality, so all Boiseans are urged to take a short drive on I-84 inside the path of totality. You will never regret doing so.

Re: “Once in a Lifetime

The Total Eclipse of the Sun is a once in a lifetime opportunity to stimulate Americans to come together in their communities and learn about science and the workings of the universe.

Do you think it is possible for environmental groups across America to work together to help stimulate community discussions between students, teachers, family and friends about how to understand and communicate the science behind environmental issues? Here is an idea for a 7 generation project to kickstart this effort - starting with Earth Day and the National Marches For Science, April 22 and continuing on through the total Eclipse of the Sun on August 21 and into the long range future.…

Re: “Climate Strange: Idaho's Tug of War on Climate Change

AGW is nothing but FRAUD only the mentally challenged believe in.

A simple greenhouse test:

- 20x20x8' greenhouse has 3,200 cubic feet
- The amount of CO2 is 1.28 cubic feet
- Does any grown sane adult honestly believe adding or removing 1 cubic foot of CO2 from the greenhouse is going to magically change the temperature by 2C?

If this was true why would anyone need to pay for energy to heat their house? All they would need to do is put a clear bubble on their roof and fill it with 100% CO2.

- The amount of CO2 increase since 1960 is equal to 7x7x7" in the greenhouse. Does anyone think this makes a difference?

- The fact is 224 cubic feet of CO2 is required to make the greenhouse temperature rise by 1C, about 70,000 PPM.

MSM and governments are scam artists, brainwashing the ignorant masses with fairy tales while they are taxed into oblivion.

Re: “Idaho Senate Tangles With Controversial 'Faith Healing' Bill

When did ignorance become a vaunted virtue? Intercessionary prayer has been scientifically proven to NOT have any influence on the outcome of a sick person's health. I'm very very vexed that fairy tales are still influencing anything in public life. Just say NO to theocracy. A person's faith is between themselves and their mythical being - it should never be the basis of public policy. If you let your child suffer and/or die because: Jesus. You have committed child abuse and/or murder.

Re: “UPDATE: Idaho Senate Kills 'Faith Healing' Bill, 11-24

Interesting that so many Idaho politicians support parents choosing to not purchase health insurance, and choosing to avoid Dr. & hospital fees by flat out allowing their children to die.
At the same time if a parent chooses to use a highly effective but illegal marijuana based medicine, even if claiming a religious basis for the use of the marijuana based medicine, then that parent is subject to the full force of the law. So, a 'religious' parent can pray in one hand and poop in the other and get poop every time but an effective choice offends the sensibilities of our elected officials.

Re: “Defriended

I'm thinking being "defriended" isn't a shallow fraudulent friendship. It isn't a matter of surviving partisan political opinions, if it isn't obvious that Trump is mentally unbalanced and that the Republican Congress has become a threat to humankind well, it should be. This isn't a pleasant agree to disagree, let bygones be bygones, it is what it is moment. It is what you make it and right now it's a disaster!

Re: “After Emotional Hearing, Idaho House Panel OKs Bill to License Sign Language Interpreters

This interpreter bill might be too good to be true, but it won't be any useful in North Idaho. It might has an setback because unqualified can be also licensing just for more money. This is common issue applied to mechanic, lawyer, drafter, etc. That would mean limited my choose of interpreter, because there is not a lot of qualified near me when I need it for law/ER. The only way to help me in ER is my mother. I was told that it is deaf person's responsible at work, public or student to pick right interpreter. Above everything, it is preposterous to saying I'm deaf suffered in community because current law are accommodations. Which mean they have right to deny your request claim. This is my concern if this become law.

Re: “Defriended

Your narrative hit me hard. Some of the once heavy buckets I carried are now very light. The bottoms didn't fall out, but very large holes did appear. I will tilt them to keep a hopeful bit of sand inside. I think some of my friends who voted for slumpty dumpty are feeling guilty at this point.

Re: “Mountain Home Dentist, Previously Charged With Lewd Conduct, Accused of Selling Drugs Near School

Totally false accusation. Nothing was sold. Where did they get their false info for this false news! He wasn't even arrested! Anyone with a brain knows that halcion is not a narcotic. It is not a street drug that anyone sells. It was administered to a patient for a procedure in a medical clinic. The school mentioned is surrounded by medical clinics. That means there would be felonies committed every working day around there based on what he did. This is simply a case of a media monster making stuff up. The media is completely immune to being punished for lying. That's terrifying because this media lie is beyond slanderous.

Re: “Ron Campbell

I'm definitely a product of that Golden Age of Saturday morning cartoons. And Mr. Campbell worked on some of the best. I actually am old enough to remember and love the Warner Bros. cartoons. For people my age, that period was golden, also. The original Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tasmanian Devil, etc. I remember the year or so when cartoons were considered too "violent" and they were edited. You didn't see the boulder fall on the coyote, or Elmer's shotgun blow up because of the carrot plugging up the end. What a crock that was. Thanks for the interview with Mr. Campbell. I'd love to have a couple of hours to talk with him.

Re: “Dietrich: Idaho Teen, Community Grapple With Aftermath of Assault

I found myself in a much milder, yet similar situation when I was in 5th grade back in the 70s. A gang of self appointed "popular" people had me in a bullying corner that could have resulted in a violent physical outcome. Only because the gang were not quite capable of forcing the event to its climax, I did escape it. I suppress the event and rarely think about it, unless events like this one pop up. This was a very horrific attack and no matter what motive or identity label you want to put on it, it deserves close scrutiny and condemnation. I really something good comes out of it and we can learn and improve upon our human condition. Idaho doesn't need any more reasons for flyover know-it-alls to berate us. Let's not give them any more.
