  • I would not bet on your last statement.We seem to be doomed to elect these people who are self serving.Because they restored 2008 levels in education funding is not a reason for them to pat themselves on the back.There are students who labored under those cuts for 5 yrs I for one am not happy about it, my grans were affected.The guns on campus and how it was passed should be a lesson to us all not to elect these people.I am against guns on campus but I am more against the fact that they didn't allow the input from the people most affected by there political whims to testify.MY grans will not be attending and Idaho college and we had considered it.

    The things that passed for business were self fulfilling and does nothing for joe blow who works daily.Idaho unemployment is 5.3,anywhere in the 4.0's is considered full employment by most economist so lets cut the bull and do the things we need to do for JOE blow ,like the min wage,and healthcare,education full funding.LETS by all means get rid of this private prison business and get back to state run.This pay for play is a racket and we are paying the costs in law suits etc.How about a disclosure on how many and who has stock in the company that sit in the legislature.How much you want to bet they wont tell us. Well I AM DONE FOR NOW..........LATER

  • I am in general very discouraged over the actions of the legislature and governor. One possible ray of hope is that Otter has Republican competition which may give the Democratic candidate for governor a small chance.

    A negative on that is that Otter's republican competition is apparently coming from the extreme right. I believe the tea party is supporting him along with Simpson's competition.

  • Judging from the reaction of Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and some others when Obama one the election largely because the voting population had shifted, it seems to me that there is fear of losing the America that they grew up in. In this old America white people got the jobs, men got the better jobs, and men were the head of the household. It was a world where in school and elsewhere you had to speak English or there was a penalty of some kind. The only culture to celebrate was the culture of the immigrants who came over on the Mayflower. The only religion to honor was Christian, and even some of those were suspect like Catholics and Mormons.

    When people are afraid they frequently resist change and I personally, think that is what the Tea Party is mostly about. They want to return to what they liked and were used to.

    I think that America was built because of change. Immigrants came here for all kinds of reasons. Some of mine came for religious freedom. Well, I guess I should get off my soapbox.

    There actions after the election and since is proof of that but they cant see it.They call it PROTECTING America FROM DISRUCTION, it is easier to have something to hate than to face your own reality.Some of mine came for a better life,some got run off there land with false treaty's but for some all of that is ok.

    America is about change it is AMERICA........I HEAR YOU SAM......I HEAR YOU.........LATER
