Dave Oliveria: A campaign platform with fewer loose screws - Sun, 13 Apr 2014 PST

The Spokesman Review - April 13, 2014 - 12:00am
Tired of all the empty rhetoric of the spring campaign, Patrick Jacobs of the Get Out! North Idaho blog offers his own legislative manifesto, including: creation of an official fashion committee for (Idaho’s) first lady to make sure (she’s) “looking fierce.” Mandatory Grace Jones Mondays. Raise the minimum wage to $45.25/hour. Apple fritter as the official state doughnut. No white shoes after Labor Day. An In-N-Out Burger joint in every town. Make Lana Turner’s birthday (Feb. 8) a state holiday – she’s from Wallace – and everyone gets the day off. Jell-O shots $1 every hour on the hour. Removal of the embarrassing, outdated phrase “Famous Potatoes” from the license plates. Replace it with “Mullet Paradise.” And Add the Words. Crazy? No crazier than legislators from Kootenai County trying to nullify federal law, putting sheriffs in charge of defining the Second Amendment and allowing guns on college campuses. Faux ‘KCRCC’

While the clerk called 911, the man opened the milk container, drank some of it and started walking around the store, pouring the milk as he went.

The Spokesman Review - April 13, 2014 - 12:00am
BOISE – A.J. Balukoff, a Democratic candidate for governor, is refusing to fill out a National Rifle Association candidate questionnaire, saying it’s “biased and loaded with leading questions that do not allow me to accurately state my position on gun laws.” In a letter back to the NRA, Balukoff wrote, “The leading questions and multiple-choice answers in your questionnaire allow for only polarizing and extreme positions.”

Yahoo! News - April 12, 2014 - 8:01am
