VIRUS: Open up Idaho

| May 8, 2020 1:00 AM

As a veteran of the Vietnam War and a follower of Christ for 45 years, plus soon to be a 60-year graduate of Clearwater Valley High School, I feel qualified to give my opinion on this Wuhan virus.

Looking at The Press, I see of all the deaths in the U.S., Idaho has about one in a thousand. And still no deaths in the five northern counties.

We fuss about nearly 60,000 deaths, but we murder a million babies a year and call it “choice.”

It is time to open up Idaho and let the people get back to work. I am not for shutting down our country, putting thousands out of work, then go borrow about $3 trillion to pay for the shutdown.

Please pray with me that all our working people get back to work soon and that common sense rules again.
