Letter: Legislature

February 27, 2014 

Has the state of Idaho gone insane? Bills to put guns in the hands of 10-year-olds and on our college campuses? Bills to codify bigotry and animal cruelty? Refusing to protect our LGBT citizens from discrimination in jobs, housing and education? Inflicting onerous tax rules that discriminate solely against gay couples who are legally married in other states? Condoning cops who shoot our pets and service animals? Refusing to adequately fund education to keep our children ignorant so they’ll blindly swallow ultra-conservative rhetoric?

Shame on Idaho! Stand up! Speak out! Take our great state back from these legislative bullies!
