Melania...

since it's a holiday weekend and my veggie garden will be complete by the end of today, lets just look at pics of Melania.

The tomatoes, peppers, and strawberries are happily ensconced in their new homes.  Today we plant the Roma beans, zucchini (why?), two different yellow squash, cucumbers, and sunflowers.

Melania is Catholic?...

apparently so.






Ouchies from gardening?  After four plus hours of digging in the garden yesterday, my right shoulder was screaming, "Enough!"
 I remembered to haul out my Salonpas Jet Spray.  This stuff works like magic.  I've tried their gel, but the spray works best of all and relief is almost instant.  If they don't have it at your local drug store or Walmart, Amazon has it on sale right now.   Remember to shake it really well before spraying.

Some other good deals of the day.

Manchester...

let's send out our thoughts and prayers, wring our hands while tears trickle down our pale and sunken cheeks, light a candle, fling about some flowers, and ponder the motives of the muslim bomber. 

The white Europeans have been sold out by the people they elected - and so have we.

Your political leaders, and the SJW's who roam among us, welcomed these heathens into the countries of Europe, Scandinavia, and the good ol' U.S.A.  This was not some random occurrence.  This was a planned invasion.  The elitists hide behind their security forces, high walls, and live a privileged life while espousing love and concern for people who blow little children into pieces that require a mop for clean up.

We heaped untold billions of dollars of aid into their outstretched hands.  We allowed them to build mosques where future terrorists are trained.  We declared we all worshiped the same God.

A commenter at Huff and Puff actually said that it's all our fault for not being nicer to muslims.  Got that?  It's our fault.  All we have to do is quit being so racist and mean and the muslim hoards will be happy and attacks will stop over night.

The MSM has already picked it's poster child for manipulating and twisting your heart strings.  Little Saffie Rose Roussos has her precious little face plastered front page on the very sites who worry about muslims being unfairly picked on.

It's time to send these vermin back to their countries of origin.  After WWII over 6 million refugees were repatriated to their country of origin.  The remaining displaced persons were absorbed in European countries and the U.S. as refugees.

The difference is that these were white Europeans being assimilated into countries who were also white Europeans.

The muslim hoards have no intention of assimilating.  If they are here, or in any European country, it's time to send them home.

Are we headed for a long, hot summer of riots and mayhem?...

some people think so.

I don't.

Before you start thinking that my opinion is based on a bunch of facts, statistics,   brilliant analysis, and weather charts allow me to say it's none of the above.  It's based only on a "feeling."

I have a sense that the libtards are getting tired of protests, marches, and silly pink hats.

That doesn't mean the lower classes won't find an excuse - any excuse, to loot and destroy, but it won't be based on anything political.  It's just what many of them do.  Recent brawls in the nicer neighborhoods of St. Paul, MN by "teens", "youths", and "young people" have rendered the beautiful parks off limits to the children of the high property tax paying citizens.

Of course the article did not specify exactly who these "teens' and "youths" were, but one of the commenters linked to a video. No one was surprised.

My favorite comment from the article:
Congratulations, St Paul voters. You gave the city to the looney left, and as you cheered, planted the correct yard signs, slapped on your precious bumper stickers, and marched, wearing ribbons to affirm your sensitivities, your gov't surrendered your city, and now your kids' playground to the t-hugs. Your organic, free range chickens have come home to boost.
And then we have the boorish behavior of the Notre Dame students who walked out on Mike Pence's commencement speech.  The very small group were booed by the rest of the students.  Do these wastrels really think they made a statement other than "my parents paid a sh*t load of money so I could walk out on my own graduation?"



Paul Joseph Watson has a different take on the upcoming "summer of rage."  The difference is he bases his opinion on some actual facts, while I base mine on a "feeling."

You'll have to decide for yourselves.

President Donald Trump's speech in Saudi Arabia...

is not available yet as the live event is ongoing.

Here ya go...

I watched it and I'm beyond impressed.

And proud!

It's about time we've had a real president.

The sun is shining, the birds are singing, lilacs are in full bloom, and we must pray for Donald Trump...

although he'll probably be safer on his trip then putting up with the MSM spewing biased hate filled fake news.


Trump's Trip


The venal lefty press are soooooooo worried that Trump will make hash of his trip and do something to embarrass the U.S. and himself.  Are you kidding me?  After Odumbo jetting around the world, bowing to foreign leaders, and making a complete jerk of himself, we're supposed to worry about Trump's behavior?

Here's what the libtards don't get - Trump genuinely likes people and they sense that about him.  Our last president only liked himself and people sensed that, too.

About that steak and ketchup thingy.


All the elitists are up in arms over Trump liking his steak well done and doused in ketchup.  So what?  I understand it because I love ketchup. I also like a good steak sauce, sweet relish, Spam, and Duke's mayo.  I have more respect for Trump's preferences than Odumbo insisting on Kobe beef as though he was to the manor born.


Today   


After months of rain and cool weather, the garden beckons.  I heard the call and am headed to the veggie area for some much needed prep work.  The tomatoes and strawberries are ready to be planted.

The lawn (many acres) needs to be scalped again.  Busy day ahead.

I suggest you all find something enjoyable to do this weekend which doesn't include "news."

There's a reason a it's called a point-and-shoot camera


My trusty little camera is an older (ancient?) Kodak EasyShare C663.  I'm not a picture or camera type person, so most of the time it's all I need.  The reason it's called point-and-shoot is because when you're outside, due to the glare on the viewing screen, you cannot see what you're trying to take a picture of - so you just point-and-shoot and hope for the best.

The "back" yard:


The "croquet field" needing cutting.  Notice the yellow along the right side of the picture on the lawn edge.  That's the correct use of glyphosate (RoundUp) - not wholesale spraying of our food. I use it only for edging since with 5 acres edging by hand is impossible. 


The messy veggie area.  Last years straw bales will be recycled into mulch:


The east back including some junipers that need cutting down.  I'm starting to hate junipers.  They just up and die for no reason.


More back yard:


The front.  Last year I murdered the grass in the circle and replaced it with bark.  Yay, me!

The New York Times wins the prize for audacity...

with this ridiculous article:

Trying Not to Drown in a Flood of Major Breaking News

While the Trump witch hunt continues, the New York Times, itself a perpetrator of "fake" and hysterical anti-Trump propaganda, wonders how we're all dealing with the onslaught. 

What follows this stupid article is over a hundred comments, most of them anti-Trump, regurgitating nonsense about the end of the world is neigh and Trump must be impeached.

Only the WaPo manages to be more dishonest and mendacious than the N.Y. Times, while the MSM cheers them on.

Here’s where we are, people: you will be allowed to elect either a hard-Left Democrat Socialist, or a “moderate” Republican collaborator; no other choice is acceptable. Your diseased, almighty government will continue to grind on: stealing your freedom, spending money it doesn’t have, refusing to defend you or re-establish the national borders, expanding the blight and decay and dysfunction that is now part and parcel of American governance. Crippling the economy via regulation and punitive taxation; poking their noses into and meddling with any and every aspect of your life; hectoring you and lecturing you about your unforgivable lack of proper respect for Progressivist psychosis; vigorously restricting your right to dissent while mollycoddling and encouraging the violent thugs rioting in your cities. 
You are now expected not just to humbly tolerate but actually be grateful for insults, slander, and physical assault by primordial dipshits without the slightest comprehension of how the world works. You are expected to work your ass off in order to keep these same thumbsucking, bedwetting shitweasels fed, clothed, and housed. You are expected to welcome hordes of third-world barbarians with no understanding of our culture and no interest in assimilating; their depredations against you—including harassment, gang rape, and occasional mass murder—will be met with no retaliation or even acts of self-defense from the likes of you. To even speak of them as enemies will bring virulent disapprobation at the very least.

 And my friend Hardnox over at Nox and Friends has this to say about all this impeachment hysteria:
Should this come to be reality then a full fledged bloody war will commence and the left and their UniParty allies will be very sorry.  Regular Americans from every stripe have had enough of this bullshit.  We want America back.  We are tired and fed up. 
Trump was elected to begin the purging of our country from the systemic cancer that has plagued our country for decades.  We are done.  We have had it with the left’s bullshit.  We have had it with the self appointed ruling class.  We have had it with the media liars.  We have had it with the nutless Republicans that are doormats for the Left. 
Our patience is very thin… VERY. 
The nutless Republicans could stop this crap in its tracks yet they choose to allow it.  Time to man up or get out of the way.  No excuses.  Choose to be part of the solution or you are THE PROBLEM… or you will suffer the consequences accordingly. 
Rest assured, those of us on the Right will not start this conflict but we will most definitely finish it.
He also has Paul Joseph Watson’s latest video regarding the bullshit meme of impeachment coming for the Left and the nutless NeverTrumpers…  Excellent!

I know there are people who don't like Sean Hannity, but don't take your personal distaste for a person keep you from hearing what he has to say.

Trump speaks at Coast Guard Graduation...

Impeach Trump?  We've reached peak insanity

And it's not going to stop anytime soon.

The lying libtards, with help from the complicit MSM, will stop at nothing to undermine Trump and his administration.

Don Surber has an excellent round up of fake news - and we thank him.

Personally, I'd like to see the president and other elected officials going about the business to which we elected them to carry out.

No longer can I even read the "news" without wondering which swamp creature crawled out of the muck in DC to inform us of how Trump should be impeached.  For what?

Mychal Massie:
[...]Our President is under attack by godless, anti-American, neo-Leninist groups funded by George Soros, and other haters. Their goal is simple; undermine the will of We the People and continue to deconstruct America by turning her into a Marxist-Socialist state. 
Massive amounts of money are being spent to produce a narrative of blatant lies about our President. These faceless entities operate in the shadows and it is my objective to shine the light of truth upon them. Following is a memorandum from an extreme far-left anarchist Democrat front group comprised of Marxists. As you read it think about the number of people who are swayed by these unmitigated lies.  read the rest
I know plenty of people of which Mychal speaks.  Their sole source of news is the Democrat Underground, NY Times, WaPo, and the soy latte guzzling crowd over at NPR.  May a pox fall on their houses.

Zilla gives us good advice on how to deal with this unrelenting barrage of nonsensical bullcrap:  #TrumpDay – Nontroversy Nonsense Edition



“Now I want to take this opportunity to offer you some advice. Over the course of your life you will find that things are not always fair. You will find that things happen to you that you do not deserve… You have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight!… Never ever, ever give up. Things will turn out just fine….Look at the way I have been treated lately. No politician in history has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can’t let them get you down. You can’t let the critics and naysayers get in the way of your dreams." President Donald Trump

Michelle Obama: "Why is someone okay with your kids eating crap"...

"here's the secret. If someone is doing that they don't care about your kid."

"And we need to demand that everyone care deeply about our kids."

In her best ghetto shuck and jive last Friday, Michelle Obama  speaking at the Partnership for a Healthier America conference in Washington, D.C., took a backhanded swing at President Trump's administration for easing the restrictions on federally subsidized school lunches. 

Why is the federal government feeding school kids?  If these kids qualify for free breakfast and lunch, no doubt their mom, who is probably single, is already receiving food stamps, welfare, section 8 housing, and free medical.  How about we have their moms pack a healthy lunch for them?  

Here's a news flash for you, Mooch:  The operative word here is "your" kids.  They're not my kids, and your "demanding" that I care deeply about millions of kids is going to have the opposite effect. 

The fact that your lunches were thrown in the trash by the poor starving kids, and consisted of the polar opposite of what kids should be eating, is of no consequence to you. 

Low fat, low salt, and high carb hampers brain development.  Skim milk for children?  Silly and stupid.

You and your pencil neck husband are continuing your legacy of classless behavior.  It's time to go away.  No one cares what you think.

Newt Gingrich: Next the liberals will blame the Martians and HuffPost goes completely crackers...

"You're dealing with desperation on the left."

And nothing points more to this desperation than this screed I stumbled upon at the Huffington Post by Michelangelo Signorile, the editor-at-large of Queer Voices, To Save America We Must Stop Being Polite And Immediately Start Raising Hell.

You could almost stop reading at that over wrought title because I can't recall a gaggle of libtards ever being polite and they're forever raising hell.

Signorile (why's a nice Italian boy having sex with other boys??) is famous for liking to "out" other homosexuals and his activism over AIDS.
 This is how he plans to save America:
 It's time to move beyond polite protests within specified boundaries. It’s time to escalate the expression of our outrage and our anger in a massive way. 
Starting today and from here on, no elected official ― certainly those in the GOP defending and supporting Trump on a variety of issues, for example ― should be able to sit down for a nice, quiet lunch or dinner in a Washington, DC eatery or even in their own homes. They should be hounded by protestors everywhere, especially in public ― in restaurants, in shopping centers, in their districts, and yes, on the public property outside their homes and apartments, in Washington and back in their home states. White House officials too ― those enabling the authoritarian ― need to be challenged everywhere, as do all those at the conservative think tanks who support Trump and those who publicly defend him in their columns and on television.
The elected officials and White House staffers must be challenged going to and from their cars and at the many public speeches they give at organizations and think tanks throughout DC and elsewhere. They should be bombarded with questions and placards by groups of people as they head to media appearances at the cable networks where they spew their lies every day. And they should be challenged when they come off TV for what they just lied about.
These people also attend functions and fundraisers at night (which are easy to locate), and these events should be disrupted, inside and out, until these politicians answer to the recklessness in which they are engaged. Paul Ryan, the House Speaker, should not be able to attend any function, eat in public, or enjoy dinner at home without hearing people expressing how his actions are harming their lives and their families’ lives in terrible ways. 
There's much more and if you have some time to waste you can read the rest.

This is not normal behavior.  This is the behavior of a psychotic who has had a break from reality.

George W. Bush slaps down Matt Lauer...

"you don't matter anymore"



From the Monday, February 27 Today show on NBC: MATT LAUER: But there’s enormous division right now. And although President Trump has said he hopes to unify the country, have you, in the first month, seen him do or say anything that, in your opinion, would be an attempt to heal the wounds of the election?

FORMER PRESIDENT GEORGE W BUSH: Well, first of all, there’s only been one month in office. And so it’s a – you know, he’s got four years. Secondly, I think you have to take the man for his word that he wants to unify the country and we’ll see whether he’s able to do so. It’s hard to unify the country, though, with the news media being so split up. When I was president, you know, you mattered a lot more because there was like three of you and now there’s all kinds of information being bombarded out and people can say things anonymously. It’s just a different world.

Almost everyone agrees that the director made serious mistakes; it is one of the few issues that unites people of diverse perspectives.”

James Comey thinks we need to understand black people better:

Monday at the Anti-Defamation League Conference, FBI Director James Comey said law enforcement “officers and deputies and agents” need to do a better job “understanding” the communities they serve, including “the history and journey of black America—the hopes, the dreams, the disappointments, and the pain.” 
I understand that more than a few of their "hopes and dreams" were dashed because of flight delays at the Fort Lauderdale airport and they suffered from "disappointments and pain".  I guess it was part of their "journey" - or non-journey as it were.
The group of passengers who clashed with cops were angry because the last-minute disruptions meant they would miss a graduation ceremony. 
A mob of irate customers began beating the counters and screaming at staff, prompting airline employees to call the police.

Health Care and Health Insurance are not the same thing. 


Here are two articles that sum up the problems with the way health care is delivered in the country:

LL, over at Virtual Mirage: 
[...]The market for health insurance should look like the market for auto insurance or homeowner’s insurance: coverage you buy on your own, instead of depending on the government or your employer to buy it for you. Supplement that market with financial assistance for the poor and the chronically ill, and you’ll have achieved market-based universal coverage, along the lines of Switzerland’s health care system.

James Lewis does a masterful job of smacking done the elitist never Trumpers.  Good for him!

The Real Reason Washington Post Republicans Hate Donald Trump

It made no sense.

Taking a Peek into the Mind of a Libtard


Liberalism is a mental disorder.

This morning, Fran Porretto, over at Liberty's Torch, reminded me of the five stages of grief as defined by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross.  I've been watching (from afar) the stages being played out to perfection by the few libtards in my acquaintance.

First we all witnessed (1) denial on election night along with grief that was so overwhelming that it produced displays of wailing and gnashing of teeth that no adult should do in public.  "No, no - this must be wrong.  Hillary should be elected."

Next they got (2) angry.  The women donned silly pink pussy hats and gathered together to screech and howl like banshees on steroids.  Again - in public.  The men?  Not sure the left has any men, to be honest.

After fueling their anger with a few more marches, they started (3) bargaining.  "Dear Gaia in heaven - make it go away and I'll plant a tree and never kill another dandelion." 

Following all this angst they've finally reached (4) depression.  Yes, indeed.  They've been fairly quiet lately because they're too damn depressed to get out of bed.  Marriages are breaking up, suicide calls are on the upswing, and the lefty therapists are having a field day racking up hundred dollar 50 minute hours.

The question is, will they ever reach level (5) acceptance?

And therein, dear poodles, is the reason we call liberalism a mental disorder.  It manifests in a detachment from reality, anger, and finally a soul destroying state of depression.

After reading the following screed (it's wise to see what your enemy is thinking and, make no mistake, a libtard is the enemy), you will understand more clearly with whom you are dealing.  


How to Stay Sane if Trump is Driving You Insane: Advice From a Therapist


It is written by Robin Chancer, who describes herself as a "behavioral specialist, sensitive social worker, immigration enthusiast, ready to laugh and cry at a moment's notice." 

That description sounds like she needs more than a few hundred dollar 50 minute hours herself. 

She preaches the concept of acceptance.  Will they do that?  Oh, hell noes!

Rep.Raul Labrador (R-ID) annihilates lefty group Indivisible in Coeur d'Alene...

and we thank him.

I'll be including some comments along the way which will be in red. And let me also say this is not a completely "fair and balanced" report.  I am a conservative who finds the antics and stupidity of the average libtard to be annoying, but also very, very dangerous. 

The Indivisible group, after the bad press they received about their out-of-control rude behavior at a previous town hall, were "mostly" kept in check by their feckless leaders at last night's town hall with Rep. Raul Labrador in Coeur d'Alene.

Raul Labrador Town Hall Coeur d'Alene 5/5/17
I say, mostly kept in check, because I had a woman and a man behind me whose ear-shattering screams posed a serious threat to my ear drums, until I turned around and told her to cut it out. Evidently, the sight of my little folded up Totes umbrella laying harmless in my lap scared the crap out of her, and she shut the hell up.  Nothing causes fear like a little old lady with an umbrella, doncha know.

Raul Labrador answered all questions, including the abrasive negative attacks with aplomb, facts, and graciousness I would have never been capable of doing.

He started out by saying that rudeness and shouting at each other was not permitted.  The attendees were free to shout or boo at him, since he was used to it, but the people were to maintain a respectful attitude toward each other and the questions asked - no matter how stupid, ill-informed, over-emotional, or just plain crazy the questions were. 

People who wished to ask a question were given a ticket and if their number was called, they could proceed to the mic to ask their question. The majority of the questions were hostile, lacking in facts, and like most libtards based on feelings and emotions.  Indivisible was exchanging tickets to make sure they got to ask the majority of the questions.  

Most of the questions were centered on health care/insurance with one outlier concerned about Amtrak.  Huh? I guess he had worked for the railroad for 40 years.

I was staggered by the amount of disinformation these people exhibited, so anyone who thinks that propaganda fake news doesn't work, they would be very mistaken.

Just this morning, I saw this clip of Anderson Cooper claiming that Rep. Labrador was essentially a liar, miscreant, heartless, and hated by all. Why? Because he said, "No one ever died from lack of health care." (To clarify:  I don't know at what town hall Raul made this statement.  The clip that I linked above to Cooper shows only Raul saying this without any context or reference to what he was asked or what statement to which he may be responding.)

One questionnaire from last night said she was a 40-year veteran of home health care, and she knew of a woman who had no health insurance, and by the time she saw a doctor, her breast tumor was the size of a baseball, and she subsequently died.

 My first thought was that woman must have been monumentally stupid.  The clinic that houses my Medicare PA is also a center for Medicaid patients.  I sit in the waiting room and witness young tattooed festooned women, who are easily 300 pounds, being treated for diabetes for free, while surfing their expensive iphone. 

Notice I said, physician-assistant and not doctor.  Anyone who hasn't retired yet, be forewarned regarding the glories of Medicare.  You will in all probability not have a doctor - you will have a physician-assistant.  That, dear friends, is how "free" health care works, which in the case of Medicare, is anything but free.  We paid all our lives, and we continue to pay each month so we can have "free" medical care compliments of our PA while the "less fortunate" get a totally free ride. 

Time after time, the same questions were asked about coverage for pre-existing conditions until finally, after almost two hours, Rep. Labrador had to say, (paraphrased) "I've already answered that question at least ten times and I'm not going to answer it again."

As the politicians like to say, let me very clear:  There is no such thing as "insurance" for someone who has a pre-existing condition.  You don't buy house insurance after your house is burning down, you don't buy collision insurance while standing on the side of the road with the front end of your car shoved up to the steering wheel, and you don't buy health "insurance" after three heart attacks or having a raging case of diabetes caused by being 100 pounds overweight.  "Insurance", for people with a bad health history, is nothing more than charity from the federal government with money forcibly wrung for the pocket's of the tax payer. 

Since I am a pragmatist, I also realize that for a politician to not address that problem is a sure way to never get any kind of bill passed.

A few outraged over-emotional women approached the microphone, not to ask a question, but to read page-long statements of angst.  One even said she found the sight of a bunch of white men (no one is more hated by the libtards than white men) lined up in the Rose Garden after passage of the bill, to be repulsive - her exact word. Raul had to remind her that he was Latino and there were two women standing right behind the podium -  one of whom was Rep. Cathy McMorris Rogers (R-WA 5th District)

When the founder of the local Indivisible group got to the microphone, we had to hear of his conversion to Christianity (virtue signaling), and he proceeded to tell us (with mangled scripture references) what his "Master" informed him was moral and right. 

At this point, I have to say my desire for a high end recording device has moved to the top of my want list, because I can in no way do justice to Raul's response.  Raul, a Mormon, managed to squelch any further nonsensical virtue signalling scripture quoting crapola from this smug little red-diaper-doper-baby who, to his credit when Raul was finished, said something along the line of, "Um, ah, thank you for coming, Rep Labrador."  

It made my heart sing with joy.

Left Wing Group "Indivisible" comes to Coeur d'Alene...

and has a bulls eye on Rep. Raul Labrador's (R-ID) town hall tonight.

Where did Indivisible come from?  Good question.  So, as usual, I did my due diligence and after several hours decided that Wiki did an okay job on explaining the origins of this divisive group.

Indivisible has a whole agenda based on disruption and rude behavior.

It's already happened here and now they have plans to upset Rep. Labrador's town hall this evening in the wake of his "yes" vote on the health care bill just passed in the House.

Rep. Labrador's Facebook page erupted in over 600 comments, mostly by members of Indivisible, with the major theme being "eat sh*t and die."

I have never witnessed a Tea Party member, or any conservative in North Idaho, disrupt an event held by a Democrat or any other libtard, and yet these people feel it is their right and duty to cause mayhem.

I have also never witnessed a bunch of conservatives trashing public spaces, attacking police, starting fires, or screaming obscenities.

Tonight, breaking my rule of avoiding crowds, I will attend the town hall in support of Raul Labrador.  I will also arrive early and by doing so will occupy a chair that a member of Indivisible will not have access to using.

The following opinion piece, by staff writer Steve Cameron of the Cd'A Press, reported on what he witnessed a few days ago at a local town hall.  The Cd'A Press is a notoriously left wing rag, so I was not surprised that Mr. Cameron walked back the entire piece this morning.  He claimed he was "angry" and allowed his emotion to color his reporting even though it is clearly labeled an opinion piece.

It will give you a taste of the Alinsky type tactics used by Indivisible - shouting, profanity, and chaos.

I am personally acquainted with Sen. Mary Souza and Reps. Luke Malek and Paul Amador who had their town hall disrupted.  While I'm not always in agreement with Malek and Amador they, as well as Mary Souza, are good people. Since none of them are in my district, I did not attend the town hall reported on below.

I also know Raul Labrador and voted for him.  If he runs for governor of Idaho (rumored), I will also vote for him

I am also personally acquainted with many of the members of Indivisible North Idaho. Some are teachers at North Idaho College and I know for a fact that they are aligned with the Communist Party and consider Vladimir Lenin one of their heroes. They have been poisoning the minds of young people for decades with a subversive agenda.

Opinion By STEVE CAMERON (5-2-17)Staff Writer 
COEUR d'ALENE — If you've never seen a session of the British House of Commons, you could have received a classic international civics lesson at North Idaho College Monday night.  
Of course, that wasn't really the plan.
Actually, it was supposed to be a town hall at which Idaho's District 4 delegation — Sen. Mary Souza and Reps. Luke Malek and Paul Amador — could field questions from the audience and presumably put a final exclamation point on the 2017 legislative session. 
Instead, a significant portion of the crowd actually did behave as though it were bully politics in London — shouting over the speakers, yelling at each other, applauding people who were incredibly rude and, at times, threatening to stop the entire event. 
Essentially, the rowdy members of the audience consisted of just what you'd expect: anti-Trump protesters still shocked by what they consider a leader whose legislative agenda might hammer at their everyday lives. 
The irony of this madness was that the targets were three common-sense, moderate Republicans who — despite some truly heated back-and-forth exchanges — often were trying to agree with the questioners.“We're just trying to show you how passionate we are about this,” one woman said to the legislators. 
“Your passion is commendable,” Souza replied, “but shouting at us doesn't make your case any better. You can do it in a normal tone of voice.” 
Oddly enough, the event started quietly with all three legislators congratulating first-time political participants. 
And it took a bit of time for the first visitor to approach the microphone set up at the front in the middle aisle. 
Even the first questioner came in peace, wishing to ask how citizens could learn more about candidates and issues. 
From there, however … 
Chaos. 
The fuses that set off several blasts were predictable: climate change and health care. 
A woman with a science degree actually screamed into the microphone about the Legislature even bothering to debate science curriculum on climate change — and the human role in it — when there is a “global consensus” on the issue. 
Amador tried to explain that, as an educator himself, he had advocated leaving the current standards in place — basically agreeing with her, although she didn't seem to grasp it. 
Souza set off the crowd with the most routine of explanations.“There are other members in Boise who don't necessarily want to deny climate change or take it out of what is being taught,” she said. “They only suggested there be more balance, because there are some people who disagree with those theories.” 
That answer set off shouts and frankly obnoxious remarks from around the room — and amazingly, the worst was yet to come. 
Over and over, the legislators tried reminding the crowd that they could only work on measures that would affect Idaho, but that such laws were critical to everyday life in Coeur d'Alene. 
They also had to repeat that they were only three of 100 members in the Legislature, and therefore were not in a position to enact bills before the night was over. 
But the individuals who came simply to bash President Trump and his policies would not be silenced, and some of the loudest remarks were stunningly crude. 
A few started their questions respectfully, like the woman who said: “You have to understand that we're terrified every morning.” 
Malek tried to engage her in dialogue, but got nowhere. 
“Buck up,” he said, clearly intending to explain that the election was over and that everyone — including Idaho's citizens and its Legislature — would need to work with the consequences. 
Those two words, however, set off fireworks before Malek could finish his sentence, and people started hollering, “You buck up!” at all three legislators. 
Like most events with a loud minority of frustrated, angry people, this town hall will be remembered mostly for all the shouting. 
And the silliest part of the whole circus was that these three legislators actually have actively worked to prevent damage in the areas for which they were insulted — like guarding the environment and making sure no one falls through the health care cracks. 
“That's my No. 1 priority,” Malek said. “We have to make sure there are no barriers to good health care that all Idahoans can afford — regardless of circumstances.” 
All three reminded the audience that no new national health care policy had yet been enacted, so they were in no position to parse out individual items. 
And yet the loud demands kept coming. 
Even the mega-polite Souza finally told one argumentative questioner: “Enough. This is finished.” 
Eventually, so was this town hall that, just perhaps, set a tone for the next election cycle. 
The good news: There was no actual damage to people or property. 
On balance, that was a win for the legislators and NIC.
