I have previously submitted a number of letters concerning Jim Jones articles in the Post Register. I have read most of his articles and rarely agreed with him. His article, in the Oct. 17 edition, “Can the lieutenant governor take over if the governor steps across the state line?” is a prim…

Perhaps with a portion of the state’s $900 million surplus, we could allocate funds to support a day care for our lieutenant governor? I’m certain that the governor has better things to do with his time than having to wrangle her in every time he leaves the state.

It seems that Doyle Beck has taken up a new profession — writing fiction. With the exception of Janice McGeachin being a hometown girl, the entire column is fiction. Sorry to inform Lt. Gov. McGeachin, but being second in command to Gov. Little does not give her powers over the Idaho Nationa…

Rob Thompson, a candidate for the Idaho Falls City Council, was spot on in his Oct. 15 column in this newspaper. He rightfully states the city is in need of a new police station; the public overwhelmingly supports our fine officers, but the city errored in the way they chose to fund the new …

Doyle Beck is back again, throwing shade on educated women like Donald of Orange in a commentary on Sept. 17. It’s all about the socialist, Marxist cabal again. Let’s look at our nation’s history for some guidance.

We must do more to strengthen our power grid against an electromagnetic pulse event. Such an event can result from an attack by terrorists or by another country (e.g. China may already have the capability, which it may use in an economic crisis) or it can occur naturally. It could result in …

What in the world has happened to the Republican Party — a party that used to stand for truth, justice and the American way? Where did it go? The Republican Party has evolved into something totally unrecognizable.

Everyone is crying about the supply chain disruptions. We must all remember that the majority of corporations sent our manufacturing to China so they could get their products made with basically slave labor by the Chinese people and having to ship those products halfway around the world inst…

Julianne Young asserts in her column from Sept. 28 that a person’s decision to not be vaccinated should not be subject to public regulation because the decision is a person’s health decision and is an “unalienable right.” She claims that “a government that imposes blanket health edicts witho…

In response to Rep. Julieanne Young regarding the vaccine mandate: You have been very vocal about your anti-vaccine stance. You rail against the vaccine mandate because it “violates” your right to make decisions about your health. This is a whole lot of hypocrisy since you have supported the…

I am writing to respond to council member Jim Francis’ column on the replacement of the old water tower. While I appreciate his reasoned argument, I find myself in disagreement with his conclusions. My wife and I walk past South Capital Park several times per week as we make the circuit of t…

The imposter hid in plain sight in his early adulthood. He put on a façade, camouflaged himself perfectly in their midst these “dupes.” It was like taking candy from a baby, so easy to say the right things at the right times, play the game none the wiser.

How close to ancient Rome are we? Mr. Trump stated something along the lines of march peacefully to the Capitol and make your voices heard. This is after eight months of many in Congress, on a certain side of the aisle, (dare I use the term left?) with certain senators encouraging the violen…

As a lifelong Idahoan, I’m thankful to Gov. Brad Little for issuing an official proclamation recognizing Sept. 20-24 as National Clean Energy Week in Idaho. Investing in an all-of-the-above approach to clean energy — including emerging clean energy technologies in natural gas and nuclear as …

As a veteran and citizen, I found your letter repulsive and filled with incorrect facts. You said anyone who voted for President Biden had the blood of the 13 soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Is that what the U.S. has come to?

“Just how like Rome are we today?” asked Aaron Tolson, recently on this page. He reads a new book by Mary Beard to say we’re getting pretty close to the rule by emperors, indolence, “adulterous, lascivious” behavior, constant foreign wars and debased money supply that brought down Rome.

A season of growth is upon us in southeast Idaho. It’s a change that many wise local leaders have anticipated. Citizens and their elected officials have for over a decade been working to make policy decisions that will best serve our municipalities and counties. My family, like many of my ne…

Curt Miller represents the small portion of the population in the Columbia Basin benefiting from four dams on the Lower Snake River. So, it makes perfect sense that he wrote an editorial against breaching them. He says global warming is affecting fish everywhere. That is true.

As most, or all of us, I received an email from Gov. Little telling me the I would be receiving an income tax rebate due to a state budget surplus, and that tax cuts would be coming in the future. As nice as this is, I think that this is not the way to deal with a budget surplus.

It’s time we stopped thanking our medical staff. The state of Idaho will be in a world of hurt if we lose more doctors and nurses. No matter how many National Guard troops are assigned to help, they can’t take the place of trained medical personnel. (And I surely hope those troops have all b…

Steve Piet should know that direct democracy and public schools are not original to American constitutions. They came later in the late 19th Century and early 20th Century. Some of the political reforms of the time were laudable, such as the referendum, the recall and women’s suffrage. Other…

The Texas new abortion law has no exceptions for rape and incest. When Gov. Abbott was asked about no exceptions, he stated that Texas will eliminate all rapes in their state. Oh my God, what world does Abbott live in? One out of every 10 women alive will be subjected to rape in her lifetime…

The sun has been relentless. The heat has been brutal. The three large breed dogs in the approximately 10-by-10 foot chain link cage pace back and forth in the heat. The one dog house accommodates only one dog. The “alpha” dog is not sharing. Towards mid-afternoon, as the sun drops, a tiny b…

Someone should explain the First Amendment to Bob Ziel. A newspaper choosing not to print anti-American propaganda from Doyle Beck doesn’t infringe anyone’s rights. Ziel’s confusion reminds me of when he claimed that a white guy yelling at him for almost going into a Blacks-only restroom in …

It appears that our involvement in Afghanistan is at an end — another war ending in disgrace. Will America never learn? We simply cannot want freedom and democracy for any nation more than that nation wants freedom and democracy for itself. We trained the Afghan military forces. We gave them…

President Biden has completely humiliated the United States with his disastrous, ill-planned withdrawal from Afghanistan. And now, 20 years after 9/11 the Taliban will control more land in Afghanistan than before that date. Biden’s withdrawal has also left billions of dollars of military equ…

Are we surprised by Idaho Rep. Giddings’, R-Snowbird, antics regarding the outing/doxing of a legislative page who was possibly a sexual assault victim, and the accused perpetrator, one of Giddings’s s conservative allies? The attitude of cruelty seems gratuitous (meaning unnecessary) or may…

Our involvement in Afghanistan ended like it started 20 years ago: with the Taliban in control after we spent $1 trillion there on a war that lasted five times longer than World War II. This catastrophic disaster happened after Biden announced that our troops would be leaving. Biden stated t…

Insinuating that only some gun owners are intelligent and creative is a low blow. I did not expect you to go there. Most intelligent gun owners no longer take the Post Register. They have been driven away, long past, by less than realistic articles by Dan, Ann, Trina and their liberal left w…

One of the great articles of faith of the Republican Party is that we believe in local control. We absolutely chafe at big government shoving their one size fits all solutions into local problems. A one size fits all solution in one place really does not fit in all other situations.
