    Letter: Conservatives

    A letter to the editor Aug. 26 succinctly expressed - probably inadvertently - why I have so seldom voted for a Republican candidate over the past two decades: Today's "conservatives" seem hell-bent on pretending that we still live in 1963, and they are blind to their own role in creating the fiscal...

    Letter: Domestic violence

    Facts. Selena Thomas. Another woman. Dead. Domestic violence. Cause: crisis of masculinity. Epidemic. Two-thousand women killed yearly. Millions abused otherwise. Solution: K-12 through college - educate boys, teenagers, young adults about manhood, masculinity, maleness.

    Letter: Government

    James Madison wrote: "If men were angels, we wouldn't need government; and if government were run by angels, we wouldn't need to place so many controls and limitations on government." But mortals run government, and for that reason, integrity, transparency, vigilance and accountability are required...

    Letter: Faith column

    I am a regular reader of the Statesman Saturday religious faith column. The Aug. 2 column about the local Muslim congregation celebration of Ramadan by Dr. Said Ahmed-Zaid got my attention by mentioning their guest speaker was from Indonesia.

    Letter: Vote them out

    Just a note regarding the November elections. Everyone agrees our Congress refuses to get anything done, and they're always on vacation! We all know what they need isn't a vacation - they need to be fired! They all promise if we'd just re-elect them, they'd go back to Washington and "fix that mess...

    Letter: Illegal immigrants

    It's not like nobody knows where the illegals are hiding. Four families can cram into a three-bedroom trailer parked on lots along back and main roads in any small town, Anystate, USA. They assemble on street corners, grocery stores, Walmart, strip mall lots and open spaces along any road. They'...

    Letter: Thanks for help with glasses

    I want to thank Dave Cannamela and the staff at the MK Nature Center in Boise who helped find my granddaughter's prescription glasses in the water under their bridge. On Sept. 5, my granddaughter visited the center with her class from Owyhee Elementary School. While looking at the fish swimming ...

    Letter: Smear campaign

    I have never before voted for a Democrat, but I am so incensed by the blatant smear campaign being waged against AJ Balukoff, that this may be the first. The cowards running this campaign don't even take responsibility for their own assertions, plainly designed to inflame Idaho's knee-jerk conservative...

    Letter: Bicyclists

    I am writing in response to Stephen R. Bancroft's letter in the Aug. 25 paper regarding bicyclists. Mr. Bancroft might want to remember that it might take bicyclists longer to get through an intersection. By Idaho law, as long as your vehicle entered the intersection before the light turned red, ...

    Letter: Robocalls

    Recorded telephone solicitations - political and otherwise - are unacceptable. You callers have entered my home uninvited and unwelcome. Politicians who are soliciting my vote have accomplished the opposite. I listen to your recorded message only long enough to determine who you are so I know who...
