WARMING: Russian left out in the cold

Cliff Harris’ Nov. 15 column quotes a Russian space scientist as claiming that we will be in a “Little Ice Age” in four years.  It is perhaps fortunate that Academician Abdussmatov is stationed in Saint Petersburg. Had he worked in Moscow he may have noticed the record high temperatures in Russia and, if he read the newspapers, 18 other nations. Abdussmatov’s beliefs are not supported by science and, in fact, are self contradictory.

Who are those people that own the banks bailed out by the taxpayers? They are the same people who own the Federal Reserve Banks and control our money. They give the President his marching orders and own the Democratic Party. They own the major media, the oil companies, the pharmaceutical companies. They originate wars and genocide. They believe they are better than the rest of us and therefore should rule the world.

TSA: Regulations have crossed line

In response to David Sheridan’s letter; so Mr. Sheridan thinks anyone who doesn’t want to consent to a ‘scanner’ or an ‘enhanced patdown’ is ‘crazy enough to be a danger to my flight” and should ‘STAY HOME’.  Although  I support having my luggage x-rayed, walking through a metal detector and removing my shoes these latest regulations have crossed the line.  This is what our Forth Amendment states:  ‘The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”  It is a fact that only persons from the Middle East with direct connections to terrorists groups have brought down or attempted to bring down an American airliner, all  these terrorist had Visa’s, Passports, etc allowing them to enter our country.  So instead of toughening our immigration and REALLY doing something to protect our borders, the average American citizen who flies must endure ‘unreasonable searches’ to make us feel secure.

TSA: Needs to start profiling

These TSA screening procedures remind me of a story I heard several years ago - I wish I could remember exactly how it went - where a man lost something on the street in the dark.  Maybe it was his car keys.  But instead of looking near the car, he crossed the street and was looking for the keys under a street light.  When asked why, he replied that there was more light there and he could see better.

WW II: Message won't be forgotten

 I joined the crew of the U.S.S. Minneapolis in San Diego on July 16, 1945. Having served aboard the U.S. Nevada as a radioman and subsequently as a radioman/controller with the FAA, I attained a receiving proficiency of 35 words per minute. It was for this reason that I was assigned to copy press for the Minnie. The ship having just completed overhaul at Brementon departed San Diego on July 16 and Pearl on July 31 for the Philippines. We learned later that the Indianapolis was torpedoed and sunk on July 30.

Idaho State alum recalls Fort Hood shooting

POCATELLO - Army Staff Sgt. and former Idaho State University psychology student Shawn Manning was texting his wife when Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire in a crowded medical building at Fort Hood, Texas, last year. Manning was one of dozens of witnesses who testified last month that he heard someone yell "Allahu Akbar" and then heard gunfire. Manning was one of the first people shot in the Nov. 5, 2009, rampage, during which 13 people were killed and 32 wounded. He was hit in the chest and knocked hard to the ground. But his ordeal wasn't over. He would be shot five more times at close range by Hasan, who is accused of carrying out the deadly rampage at the country's largest military base. "When he opened fire, I was one of the first people that got hit," Manning told the Journal in a recent interview. "I thought it might be a drill but then I looked down at my chest and I knew it wasn't. Then he kept shooting."

Justified Rights

Since 1973, there has been a lot of squawking from anti-abortion advocates about the legal basis for Roe v. Wade. Sophisticated abortion foes argue activist judges are making laws rather than interpreting them; thus, the underpinning of Roe, the right to "privacy," is not valid because it is not guaranteed in the Constitution. If those Constitutionalists are serious about that argument, and not simply seeking excuses to outlaw choice, I would think they are equally outraged with the Supreme Court's ruling on the Citizens United case early this year.

This Thanksgiving I'm especially thankful not only for the good health of our family but for the simple fact we all have roofs over our heads and food in the pantry. We all have paychecks coming in, even if they're less than they've been in years past. It doesn't go unnoticed that there are many in our communities who cannot make the same statements of fact. I'm thankful for ... my nephew, Dallas Scharf and his fellow solders who are spending this holiday on foreign soil in the service of our country .. good friends and neighbors who still dig deep to give to worthy causes and make time to volunteer their time, all in the hopes of making things a little brighter for others not so fortunate ... for our many blessings give thanks.

Habitat for Humanity really hurt their credibility in the community when they let Jim go. Mike, you have a big heart and a desire to serve, thank you. Something has really been a concern to me throughout the last year however. Mike, you have become very courageous lately. You have asked the city of Coeur d'Alene to pay your legal bills ... REALLY? Many people are shocked by this egotistical act of arrogance. Please tell us this was a misprint Mike. If the city is even considering doing this then maybe we do need a new election, right away! Maybe they should invest in the election system so this does not have to happen again. Good grief people ... REALLY? The only people benefiting here, in my opinion, are the lawyers. Perhaps they could do something on their end to make this easier on both parties. My recommendation to the city: Stay out of this one financially. Again, I have incredible respect for both of these men.

"Baby and Child" was published in 1946, four years after I was born; probably I was too old to be pampered into purgatory or wherever the "spare the rod, spoil the child" advocates of my day were saying "Spock babies" would go.

Giving thanks. It's a simple concept, rooted in so many of us. But how did we come by the understanding of gratitude? For me, growing up in a family that valued giving over having was key. What we lacked in financial wealth, my parents made up for in graciousness toward others. There was never a time when the Butters clan was too poor to volunteer assistance of one kind or another. How thankful I am to have been born into altruism. It was clear from day one that my hands were meant for lending. I never knew any other way.

BRANNON: Aim for next election

Our going to the court system and wasting everyone else's time and money for a second time is disgraceful and surely will not win my vote in the future. I do believe you have caused the city and hence the taxpaying citizens in Coeur d'Alene $40,000 in legal fees already and you should be the one to pay up in my opinion as you are not the prevailing party.

KENNEDY: No way city should pay

Are you kidding me? Give me one good reason why the hard working taxpayers of Coeur d'Alene should pay Mike Kennedy's legal fees. He chose to run for that office; nobody forced him. Voice up people or the bureaucrats will pay this exorbitant amount of your tax dollars. If they process this like a claim like Mike Gridley says they will do, it's a guaranteed expenditure.

Honoring our hometown heroes

As Idaho's 116th National Guard Cavalry Brigade marches off to war, Hayden's "Wolf Pack" Bravo Company, reorganized now as the 455th Engineer Company, is part of the Army Reserve's 321st Engineer Battalion, and remembers their 2006-2007 tour of duty in the relentless heat and barren landscape in western Iraq. The Battalion was the lead element of "Task Force Pathfinder," a route clearing mission, arguably one of the most dangerous of all endeavors, not to mention that they did it in a combat zone, constantly in the sights of the enemy.

Balance the budget: It's the law, Mike - Guest Opinion

Mike Ruskovich would have your readers believe he strokes that long white beard and just like "Abe" comes out with inarguable statements. I think this beard has shades of gray.

And the attempts at misdirection on how our Idaho Constitution works don't even come close to inarguable.

Or it could be that your pain has caused you to miss days of work, become unable to take care of your children or limit your ability to enjoy a sporting event or hobby. Pain comes in a variety of ways ranging from acute injuries where pain quickly becomes debilitating to chronic pain that can cause people to change the way they live their lives. You don't have to live with that pain, nor should you.

The Skinny on Weight Loss The holidays are coming

Approximately one year ago I started measuring my patients abdominal girth as a way of getting them to be aware of their risk for the conditions of the metabolic syndrome associated with central obesity. I was also aware that many of my patients had already been put on the drugs that treat these conditions (i.e. type II diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol), and how dangerous some were. One of my patients asked me what my abdominal girth measurement was, to which I replied "I don't know, I've never measured myself". The reason why not was that my waist size was 34 inches and men weren't considered at risk unless their abdominal girth was over 40 inches. (Soon I was to learn that wasn't entirely accurate. Many men are at risk at 37-39 inches). Once my patient left I measured my abdominal girth (at the belly button) and was somewhat shocked to learn that the measurement was 39.5 inches. I was at risk and the holidays were coming.

Sports fans

My friend Dan is a Boise State football fan though it's far more than that. His daughter attends BSU, probably because he needed an excuse to drive 500 miles to see home games; in January he wangled his way into the Fiesta Bowl in Tempe. For the 2010 season opener on television, he wore a blue on orange BSU T-shirt in the morning and an orange on blue BSU T-shirt in the evening. I noticed the change about mid-day; Dan believes the second shirt, purchased at the Fiesta Bowl, is luckier. Since BSU won the televised game in the closing minutes - just as they did the Fiesta Bowl in January - I guess he knew what he was doing. Earlier that day when we needed something to wipe dirt off our car he said he thought he "might have an old Idaho Vandals' shirt around somewhere." My father-in-law Chester even in his 80s would have headed for Dan's jugular; no Idaho jury would have convicted him, at least not one north of Lewiston.

Is GM really worth as much as Ford right now?

DETROIT - If investors pay what General Motors hopes to get for its stock in a planned IPO, they'll have to buy the logic that the company's stock-market value should be similar to its closest competitor, Ford Motor Co. But Ford is making far more money these days and its U.S. market share is rising while GM's is falling and its new management team has little auto industry experience.

Maryjane's Everyday Organic

"Potpourri? I'll call it a symbol of the things we hold onto throughout our lives, little things we cherish," writes Shery Jespersen on the Ranch Farmgirl Blog (rfgblog.maryjanesfarm.org). "I've made potpourri for many, many years. It lets me bring the outside inside. Each little petal, flower, twig or natural trinket is like a pleasant thought or a memory. I have a large birch-bark basket, and its sole purpose is to collect my sentimental coffee table 'mulch.' Every year or so, I toss out the old stuff and start over with a fresh batch, and then add to it over the year ... pine cones and flowers from trail rides, roses from my beloved, orange pomanders from Christmastime ... etc., etc."

Voters: We don't need no education

Philanthropy can't trump hypocrisy. Kids are smart enough to sense this even if they lack the education to do anything about it. And they will tell adults, in a variety of ways, how hard it is to swallow a lecture from someone whose words and actions are disconnected. That's why adults in Idaho should not be surprised if the current and numerous commercials urging students to "go on" and extend their educations beyond high school fail.While it is admirable that the Albertson Foundation is willing to put its money where its mouth is in an effort to convince kids of education's importance, advertisements are still merely words, and the actions of this state's leaders and voters speak louder than those words.

REFS: Blew it in Cd'A-LC contest

I was at the Lake City/Coeur d'Alene football game last Friday and that had to be the worst officiating I have ever seen in my life. The referees called three personal fouls on Lake City that crippled them. They blatantly turned their head to some unbelievable holding penalties by Coeur d'Alene. Particularly when Coeur d'Alene's quarterback was chased back 20 yards and the only thing that kept him from getting tackled was their lineman holding Lake City's rusher. Then there is the 4th down play Lake City went into the end zone and they ruled it on the 6-inch line, giving the ball back to Coeur d'Alene. All in all it was terrible officiating.
