Re: “UPDATE: Restrictions to Idaho Ballot Measures Move Forward on Party-Line Vote

This sort of thing has been going on all across the country. Republican legislatures are trying to shift more and more power away from the general population and to the rural areas of our country where they still hold sway. Strategically, it makes sense, but it's still really sleazy.

Re: “Daily News: Idaho Lawmaker Asked to Step Down From GOP Leadership Over Gun Control Letter

In today's GOP, anyone who's even a little bit sensible is run out of the party. And they wonder why they can't win national elections anymore.

Re: “Tribune: Idaho Woman Slams Textbook as a 'Liberal Democrat's Dream'

And people wonder why Idaho ranks among the very bottom states in the nation in terms of education. Legislative folly like this doesn't help and people here don't seem the least bit embarrassed to rank with Mississippi and Alabama. These are not states to emulate.

Re: “Primary Preview: District 18 Race Should Be Nail-Biter

Wait what? There's a district in Idaho where Democrats actually have a chance?

Re: “Study Ranks Idaho Suicide Rate Fourth in Nation

I find it odd that suicide rates are higher in the rocky mountain corridor than in the rest of the nation. Frankly, since moving out to this part of the country, I've never been happier. I wonder what the link is?

Re: “Smoke-Free Proposal Turns Podium into Pulpit

Rights end when they infringe on the rights of others. In this case, the right to be in a public space and not have to breathe in filth.

I just moved here from Fort Wayne, IN a few months ago and several years back we went through this same thing when Allen County banned smoking in all public places. There were the usual cries of, 'Tyranny!", "Nanny State!" and "Big Brother!" but in just a few short months general consensus was that it was a good thing to do. And people of Fort Wayne actually took pride in the fact that, for once, we weren't the most backwards city in the entire country.
