  • Oh my goodness Kelly.

    That was HILARIOUS.

    Thank you.

    CJW- He has provided alternatives. I'm willing to bet he voted in the last election as well.

    We have the right to address our grievances as per the first amendment. This article did not infringe on anyone else's rights- it was simply a sarcastically humorous criticism of what's going on in the state capitol.

    "Nice union wages"

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Are you referring to TEACHER'S salaries?

  • I am well aware of what our troops do to protect our rights Mr. Bradbury. I come from a LONG line of servicemembers.

  • Has nobody heard of editorials?

    The NEWS should be unbiased, but editorials are exactly that- personal opinions on an issue. Kelly's views do not necessarily reflect the opinion of the MHN any more than my views reflect the opinion of the Tiger Tribune.

  • From

    Editorial: An article in a publication expressing the opinion of its editors or publishers.

    Satire: the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc

    a literary composition, in verse or prose, in which human folly and vice are held up to scorn, derision, or ridicule.

    I think this falls under the heading of satire.

  • Please don't lump me or the rest of the public into the "anti union sentiment in the state and nation right now". Many Americans feel that this sentiment is unconstitutional. I have never been a member of a union but I do recognize how they have helped many American workers by protecting wages and benefits that governments and employers would never have paid on their own. People have died to protect these rights in the past.

    I applaud the original article and am happy to read about comments in a state of conservative, mostly middle to low income people who don't seem to recognize when the rich conservative legislators are doing their best to increase the gap between low and high income. None of these legislators are volunteering to lower their own salaries to help with state budget shortfalls.

    Other comments seem to supported the idea that the stupid in the water is not limited to Idaho, it seems to be a national epidemic.

  • Pretty interesting how colleges seem to make online education work just fine. Do you need to take some ownership in doing the work? Yup. Do you need to have some sort of work ethic to do the work without a teacher standing over you? Yup. If it works well for should be good enough for our local HS students. They had better get used to it now...IT IS THE WAY OF THE FUTURE.

    If the education system does not change, there will be no system and no education. Pretty easy to see that what we have does not work and is broken.

    Best not read on April 1.

  • I quite enjoyed it, Kelly!

    Now if we could just harness all this hostility and aggression and create an energy source, sell it to Idaho Power and use the funds to spike the water with some kind of cranial-enhancing chemical....I wonder if there's a grant out there...

  • Read this again on April 1st and it is still not funny or thought provoking. 4 minutes of my life gone.
