Re: “Away with the Whey: Chobani Yogurt Puts Rural Idaho in a Stink

(jozinger) The article is about ACIDIC whey....have to read it all to understand it all Mr jozinger. Well hope the couch is still comfy. Oh and as for Idaho being an agriculture state. That may be true, but as for it being a benefit to Idaho that started on a downhill trend over a decade ago. Everyone in this state pay's taxes to help maintain the properties of those in the agriculture and cattle industry. They both receive healthy government funding and pay zero property tax.

Re: “When Tears are Right

In reply to Bambi - The article says the Afghanistan and Iraq wars could have been avoided and still punish those responsible for the attacks. It's the over reaction that has changed our country and an example of that would be your aggressive reaction and interpretation of our government, dwindling freedoms and the classy comment of the jockeys. A certain sector of people have now become so angered, hateful and paranoid that they've now turned their aggression towards other American citizens, sound familiar? It's the lack of communication and information that has your country in shambles, not the gestapo. I don't claim to know everything, but when asked an opinion on something I know little of I'll respectfully say I have no opinion because I have no information on the subject. Something most Americans need give a try and then make an effort to educate themselves. Lack of understanding creates fear and aggression, it's basic psychology. If you can't discuss something without using disrespectful comments it's very likely you yourself don't understand.

Re: “When Tears are Right

Well written article and I couldn't agree more. The Afghanistan and Iraq wars were not necessary and they cost our country and citizens so much and gave back nothing. The whole "terrorism" scare was force fed to citizens until they became so worried and fearful that it changed our culture. About 4,000 women die each year due to domestic violence. Since 1970 far less than 4,000 American citizens have died due to terrorism. Approximately 2,600 died in the 9/11 attack, less than 600 died in the Oklahoma City bombing and from there the numbers are in the single digits for all other attacks. The 9/11 attack was basically used to steer those with no direction and convince those with no understanding. Quite sad and also scary when you see just how opinionated the citizens of this country are, but have little to no information to support their beliefs or understanding.

Annual number of deaths in the United States and causes
Cause Number
Smoking tobacco 435,000[5]
obesity 111,909[8]
Alcohol 85,000[5]
Infectious diseases 75,000[5]
Toxic agents 55,000[5]
Preventable medical
errors in hospitals 44,000 to 98,000[10]
Traffic collisions 43,000[5]
Firearms deaths 31,940[11]
Sexual disease 20,000[5]
Drug abuse 17,000[5]

Of those listed above I can easily see where lives could be saved by making simple changes. Why aren't changes made? Because none of which can generate money and unless change makes money it will never come. Unless the people demand it.....
good luck with that. Sunday truckers don't like to learn. *sigh*

Re: “Away with the Whey: Chobani Yogurt Puts Rural Idaho in a Stink

If poured into a waterway, or sewer, acid whey has the potential to deplete water oxygen levels, which can kill thousands of fish. For every ounce of yogurt made 3 ounces of acid whey are the by product. This is the largest plant in the United States and just as the state of Idaho has hidden environmental risks to the public in the past I feel this could again have major impacts on the citizens of Idaho. Our lawmakers have repeatedly shown their support for business over environmental risk. I wish our elected leaders would chose to lead and make decisions that protect Idaho's future rather than continue to gamble with unforeseeable risks. If the state would focus on more sustainable areas for profit like recreation they could easily provide as many jobs as Chobani has, but without the environment and health risks. The state of Idaho receives 13% of it's GDP from recreation and they spend nothing to receive that. Imagine if the state invested in recreation making it more accessible year round they could provide twice as much revenue, but our lawmakers are old fashioned and prefer nasty plants as opposed to clean rivers. Time for the old to wake up or better yet, leave!

Re: “Immigration Activists: Raul Labrador Will Be 'Heroe O Villano'

Raul Labrador would be a hypocrite if he didn't support immigration. He's a true republican when it comes to everything else. He protects the rich from paying their fair share in taxes. Protects banks and wall street from being reformed, so they can continue to take advantage of the people. Raul Labrador favors dirty coal burning plants over clean energy. He doesn't care if you have affordable health care and he doesn't care about providing good education. Aside from immigration Raul Labrador doesn't support anything that helps you or I and only works for the corporations that donate to his party.
Raul's a pimp, but which representative of the republican party isn't?
