    Given their economic priorities I have to wonder if Otter and crew didn’t graduate from the Afghanistan Institute for Economic Development. 😦

    Thanks for the link forward Ralph. It’s an interesting read. I’m glad the Statesmen is bringing these issues to the public forum.

    Notice the concept of reducing the pay that these backwards legislators are getting, even more so in retirement, is never considered as an option. It is not all that well known among Idaho voters that retiring from the legislative body in the state had the reward of million$ in retirement, it’s almost like winning the lottery. Once retired you become an instant millionaire. Feudalism, what a wonderful thing.

    Excellent that it mentioned the slickspot peppergrass suit! Can you think of a worse use of state money than by doing the bidding of 1 or 2 ranchers by filing a federal case to unprotect a plant?

    Also, the entire budget of the Idaho Office of Species “Conservation” needs to get some sunshine. How much does this agency receive every year in its quest to reduce protections for Idaho fish and wildlife?

    Is this a pot\kettle thing? Or is the Hawaii sun just getting to me?

    It’s an obvious move by the privileged to maintain and increase power over those they are supposed to serve. Instead it has become the opposite where the public is serving the servant, about as convoluted as it gets. The rates of hunger, poverty, and undereducation in the state are near the top of the list. Blind-eyes and tin-ears rule in Idaho.
