    Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends. I have not much hope that Bundy can be cured before he dies, but there is a chance of it. And he is bound up with the fate of the Governor and the Lieutenant. My heart tells me that he has some part to play yet, for good or ill, before the end; and when that comes, the pity of the feds may rule the fate of many.

    Or not. Sorry, it all just reminded me of something since there's a primary coming and I think Pio had a term for it but I've forgotten. Anyway, having Ammon in the race may tamp down Janice's enthusiasm.

    Fuck...Old Man Bundy was old when I met him in 1990.

    Holder right there......Ammon Bundy is running for governator of Idaho?
    The smell of the Moes is strong in all of this; quite possibly in every regard.
    They ever cop to it or, Joe Smith forbid, someone turns on them from the inside, their church tax status could vaporize.

    So many otherwise normal folks I meet in WA show themselves to be total wackjobs when they talk about wanting to move to Idaho because we’re too socialist and freedom still exists in Idaho.

    Nowadays I just write them off.

    Yeah, I live here and have to listen to that shit every day. Idaho doesn’t seem any different from what I’ve seen. I hope all of them do move.

    Deep-red Idaho sees growing clash between GOP and far right


    BOISE, Idaho — The dream world for Idaho’s ascendant far right is one where state lawmakers run a sovereign nation-state free of federal oversight. It would be a place where they can outlaw all abortions, dictate what is taught in schools, have complete say over public health rules and gun laws, and take control of federal public lands, which make up more than 60% of the state.
    When you see something that is not right, not just, not fair, you have a moral obligation to say something. To do something." Rep. John Lewis

    Idaho is one of the states that receives more in Federal spending than it contributes in taxes.

    They want to live like it was 1829. So they could replace fed $ with a modest GoFundMe.

    It's not all bad in Idaho. Dogs can go from tragedy to dream job in a flash:

    This is pretty simple logic: more Fed funded highway miles per capita, etc

    Fun fact: 15 of the top 20 states most dependent on the federal government voted Trump. I thought Republicans hated the federal govt and handouts and such.

    Look! A non-political story about Idaho!

    I don't doubt many of you will politicize it anyways.

    Our local community FB page has at least 1 lost Pyrennes per month and, like its instinct or something, they are always found at a local farmer's place guarding pigs, sheep or cattle. Now that's good facebook and good Idaho at the same time.

    As a Pyrenees devotee, I would shelter any lost white furkid in a heartbeat.
    Greatest dog evah. A quick read about them would impress anyone.
