Cheers and Jeers logo

Jeers to people who cannot stop their cars for Pedestrians in crosswalks, especially at stores! Sorry, but my 2 legs do not go as fast as your 4 wheels! Sorry to inconvenience you, but you need to Stop and be considerate!

Jeers to the Trump disciples who seem to think that the J in his middle name stands for Jesus, as in “the chosen one”; as in “the white house is hallowed ground”, etc. ad nauseum. However, another name from the new testament comes to mind that starts with a J. You know, the one who sold Jesus out for 30 pieces of silver? I wonder how much that would be worth today, exponentially speaking?

Jeers: Our neighborhood mail person on Sat may have been having a bad day, our mail box was slammed shut and flag broke, and the mail was thrown clear to the back all upside down. Later, someone must have gotten our pkg and returned it back to our mailbox. It was an order purchased for a gift.. We thank you Very Much for being an honest neighbor! That is the 4th piece of mail misplaced and returned to us by neighbors in the past 2 months. hmm?

Jeers to the reader from Emmett who, in his slavering defense of RINO Jim Jones exhorted all Americans to continue to buy inferior goods from China, a country that is dedicated to the economic and political demise of America (and puts enormous tariffs on all American goods) while looking the other way as they steal our technology—and then hilariously described the rip-off as consumers ordering goods they want from nice guy China instead of recognizing that a despotic country is flooding our markets with cheap junk and driving American companies out of business.

Cheers to the Nampa Fire Dept for going above and beyond on a recent call from us! Very much appreciate your saving grace and help with the task at hand!

Cheers to the Good Lord Above for this day and Every Day! May the best use of our time be to love and help others.

Jeers to the lack of funding for mental health and suicides among veterans because I lost a cousin who was a veteran and some friends and it is time to hold government and the media accountable. Jeers to the lack of attention on mental health and compassion shown because we as people lack tolerance and compassion for people and have we no shame. Jeers because we are a nation that has become cold and cruel and what has happen our nation has become monsters because they no longer care or feel.

Jeers to Karen Sharpnack concerning “Vaccine rules and requirements protect..” Ms. Sharpnack, who makes $50,000 a year promoting vaccines, says “vaccine ingredients are safe and effective”. Also said “Infants also can’t be vaccinate.” What??

Cheers: Thank you, in the Opinion Section, Joyce Witzel, Kuna, for your Medicaid article. For letting us know of the public comment period. Our politicians need to remove the work restriction. It is hurting so many in need and creating another whole gap of people that cannot get Healthcare. Should be illegal. Other States have banished the thought of it.

Jeers to aggressive drivers!! Why do you tailgate someone who is going the Speed Limit?

No matter what the Speed Limit, tailgaters will still want to drive 10-20 miles above it!!

Go around or Back Off!
