    Hi, Mateo...
    Thanks for the comments!
    I'm a lifelong Idahoan. I'm much more moderate than most Democrats from growing up and living here, but I remember when Idaho was a more moderate state very well.
    Not so since the 90's.

    It's a small state. I personally know 2 of 3 Governors we have had since 1992.

    How crazy is it here? How about 33 failed attempts at making abortion illegal over the past 10 years? Our legislative sessions consistently fail to do anything but pass social issues that are all struck down by the courts. Our state is riddled with Legislative scandals.

    Living here always gives me plenty of ammunition. It's easier to be a Democrat in Mississippi than here.

    Hey, it's also nice to see the rest of us (including moderates of all stripes, true independents, as well as libs) starting to speak up again, rather than always ceding the "discussion" to the noisiest (and lowest common denominator) in the room! That, and your posts are often funny as hell!

    Hi, Mateo...
    I don't send friend's requests very often here, but you are an exception, for sure. I have always admired your clarity of thought and how well you express that clarity in your posts. For me, that counts far more than if you agree with me or not or vice versa. Friends can disagree but still respect each other. I'll be honored if you accept my friend's request; it's very nice to have deep discussions on C-D, especially C-D, as it's much easier to throw rocks at each other here than it is to honestly engage civilly. This place is all the better for your contributions.
