Re: “Fake-News Nightmare

Unmentioned in this column are the progressive's pet fake news sources that were widely popular in that liberal bubble. We had years of the smug and smarmy John Stewart and Stephen Colbert (and now we have their offspring shows). These shows readily admitted it was fake news and many of their viewers readily admitted these shows were their only source of news. Sure they are satire and comedy but the line was blurred. Remember 'truthiness'?

Unless you are willing to admit that some of the biggest purveyors of fake news were those on the left, just save your bellyaching.

Re: Ryan Humphrey.

Paul is as pro DEMOCRAT and anti-Republican as anyone you will ever meet. Apparently, you're not a frequent reader of his biased, liberal rants in the Inlander.

Re: “Why Idaho kids don't go to college

Hi people ,iam Larissa April,Last year, i had health issue and due to this reason i was advised by my doctor to always move on a vehicle in order to avoid the total loose of strength since my place of work was far from where i and my husband reside , i told my husband about my plans to get a loan since there was no other means so that i can get a good car of my choice but my husband instructed and advise that i shouldn't apply for a loan online because almost all loan lenders online are fake and fraudulent in there actions so i had to suffer the stress of not moving on a car for some months and i later made up my mind to apply for an online loan because i wasn't having any other choice at that point but still i was advised by my siblings to apply for a bank loan instead of an online loan especially due to the current ongoing news about online scammers but all effort to get a loan from my bank didn't work through because i was having a bad credit report so with all this issues i had to get my mind crossed by applying for a loan online although i wont say that i was so perfect or very careful for not been scammed but i strongly believe that it was the lords mercy of God that directed me to the AMEIR MILLER CLASSIC FINANCIAL INSTITUTE . the great news is that i got my loan funds very fast and easily and this came to the surprise of my husband and my siblings who had earlier on discouraged me on this online loan issue and the most surprising of all was that i was granted this loan funds at a very cheap interest rate if %4 percent ... i am grateful for this car loan and i am also grateful to the AMEIR MILLER LOAN FOUNDATION FOR THERE transparency and total support , you can reach them on email : [email protected] or [email protected] , [email protected]

Re: “In Defense of Refugees

I'm afraid any refugee should be afraid, since as white males third and fourth generation Americans, in our 60s who happen to be gay, are each day braced for making a run for the border.

Re: “Fuel Us Twice?

You can get a permit for most anything, especially when you promise politicians rosy projections. "Regulating" permitted activity under capitalism - the goal of which is endless growth and profit - is another story altogether. Said capitalist high priest Milton Friedman, "The social responsibility of business is profit". Profit. Period. Not a pure aquifer. Not public health. Not corporate responsibilty. No. None of that. Profit. Period.

Re: “This Isn't Normal

Re: Paul read a book. The only time Paul even mentioned "DEMOCRATS" (as you put it), is when he said normalizers could be both Republican and Democrat. Literally none of what you said had anything to do with what Paul was speaking about.

All of Paul's historical references were accurate. I think it's safe to say he has a grasp on history.

People who subscribe to both the Democrat and Republican parties can be racist. Parties themselves cannot be one or the other. They're not sentient beings. It's the people. Your argument about this makes absolutely no sense.

Planned Parenthood has never, and currently does not make profit off of baby parts. You, Republican fanboy, of all people, should know this; as it was your party that not only wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayer resources investigating dozens of Planned Parenthood locations throughout the country, but they (the Republicans) also found and concluded that there was zero evidence of this. Talk about someone who doesn't know their history...

Anybody who suggests an equivalency between Trump and Nazis is a clueless, histrionic ninny.

Re: “Incendiary Words

It's funny to see reality set in on the perpetually clueless democrats. They have been lied too by their leadership so many, many times, yet they are still hopeful that somehow what their betters said would happen, and it will magically come true if they have faith.

This is not Field of Dreams democrats. Shoeless Joe was a cheat.

Now the D's are reduced to their endless practice of blaming others for their own failures

When will they ever grow up and clue in to the fact that big government is a recipe to failed government?

When will the democrat faithful learn their leaders are nothing more than money grubbing opportunists and reprobates.

Re: “To Kill the Black Snake

Those sticking up for the black snake are the most ignorant people on Earth. Do some research, look at history, get your head out of your ass and off the fucking internet, and you might be enlightened to the fact that cutting down all the trees and burning fossil fuels will ultimately lead to the planets sixth mass extinction, end-of-times in other words. If you don't believe in prophecy, or even Revelations, than surely you must believe in science. There have been five mass extinctions, the dinosaurs being the latest, and studies have proven elevated levels of CO2 during each one. Here's basic science for you, humans breathe in oxygen to live and convert it to CO2 as we exhale. Trees, in turn, absorb CO2 and through a process called photosynthesis convert it back to oxygen cause they're nice like that... Stewards of the land persay, much like my native heroes. Continue deforestation, burning of fossil fuels, and the inevitable population growth.....
I'm done because I know you imbeciles won't hear a thing you just read and will argue every point I made, so save yourself the precious time you have and go back to your luxurious quality of life that only oil can supply you with. IMO walking around the forest with my family foraging for our quality of life, is far more luxurious than sitting in traffic for two hours before and two hours after working for "the man" ten hours a day six days a week for my entire fucking life just to die broke and so detached from my family because all our heads are wrapped up behind a tiny fucking screen the other ten hours of our days. I'M DONE!

Re: “Incendiary Words

What is most disturbing about Trumps candidacy and his subsequent victory are the many voices that, in their support of him, his actions and his policy proposals, show no capacity to detect anything out of the ordinary and readily see in him nothing more than a refreshing, much needed, new personalty on the American political stage. This attitude is exactly what Hannah Arendt had in mind with her reference to the "banality of evil," or Nadezhda Mandelstam recalled as unwitting victims "the whole pack of us licked the hunter's hand, squealing incomprehensibly." This phenomena is not so much itself a moral failure as an absence of honest intellectual reference points that would allow a Trump apologist to reject the appearance of normalcy and equivalence and thereby find grounds to make a moral judgement. Such thinking might be safely dismissed except for the fact that it produces the many accomplices necessary to implement evil on a large scale. Clearly, such people would not be hard to find.

Re: “This Isn't Normal

FDR was a Socialist Democrat with a cult like following in his time and like said was the closest thing to a Dictator America has ever experienced.

FDR and his Democrat Controlled Congress put Americans in Concentration Camps.

FDR's Kangaroo Supreme Court said it was A'OK.

Re: “Fake-News Nightmare

Fake news during Presidential elections isn't a recent development . Remember Dan Rather's Killian documents scandal just months before the 2004 election? He presented forged documents on 60 Minutes to suggest GW Bush didn't fulfill his obligations in the National Guard.

Even the founding fathers used fake news in the form of untruthful letters to newspaper editors written under pseudonyms to attack political opponents.

And it is both frightening and appalling to think that internet content should be "screened" by persons who decide what is true. People should be allowed or obligated to do their own critical thinking. Not quite ready for a Ministry of Truth, thanks very much.

Re: “This Isn't Normal

If people who are supportive of Trump or his agenda are normalizers, does that mean that those who oppose Trump or his agenda are abnormalizers?

Re: “Incendiary Words

Articles complaining about Trump's latest pronouncement remind me of my old neighborhood. Every time a car alarm went off, numerous dogs would bark and bark and bark until the alarm was shut off or just wound down. Kids and teenagers realized this and would push cars with their hands to trip the alarms. Bark, bark bark without fail.

Perhaps Trump enjoys listening to the media bark, bark bark. Or perhaps he realizes that eventually the public will no longer listen to what the press has to say about him, writing it off as just more bark, bark bark.
