Fort Boise: The White House petition site is newsy, and something about one’s own state will get attention. When I loaded the page, I saw that it now had 1,795 signatures, with just over 23,000 to go to garner an “official response.” Think of it like Angry Birds, maybe. These are people who don’t mind wasting taxpayers’ resources to make a meaningless statement. The good news is that one official response will serve for any and all of the 50 (I assume there will be 50 eventually) petitions that reach the response threshold. 161 of the 1,795 entries listed ID in their location. That means (a) more than 90% of the participants either can’t read, or can’t be bothered to make a truthful button click; and/or (b) quite a few people outside want Idaho to leave. Sorry, we’re not going to. (Wikipedia photo of Angry Birds app)
Question: Which group of people would you like to see leave Idaho?
