Public Service Announcement: Don’t Move to Moscow. Very Dangerous for Kids!

I posted previously about’s ranking Moscow, ID, and the #1 place to raise a family, Top 10 Best Affrordable Places to Live, and Top 100 best Places to Live.

If you are thinking of moving to Paradise Moscow Latah County Idaho, just don’t!

My friends and I have come up with a list of reasons not to.

  • Lots of people with guns!
  • Yearly burning of fields!
  • Forest fires!
  • MOOSE! Very dangerous. We had moose downtown last year!
  • Snakes. Lots of snakes! The Snake River isn’t called that for nothing!
  • Did I mention open carrying of guns?
  • Nazis! You know that Idaho has neo-Nazis under every rock!
  • Everyone here is racist, sexist, and patriarchal. Bad, bad place for kids.
  • Did I mention the guns?

No, this place isn’t safe for kids.

Everyone, stay where you are. There’s nothing worth moving here for.

There’s your selfish public service announcement for today. We’d appreciate your not raising the cost of living by moving to paradise.

2016 OECD PISA Rankings

There is no excuse for this. We spend more per capita than any other country, yet our government schools produce a 2nd World education (even Estonia, Slovenia, and Vietnam are ahead of us!).

How about we get back to basics, and ask these countries in the top 10 of how they do so well with so little.

We certainly know that if throwing more money at the problem were the solution, we’d be #1.

Timely Verse for Crazy Times

“You shall not spread a false report. You shall not join hands with a wicked man to be a malicious witness. You shall not fall in with the many to do evil, nor shall you bear witness in a lawsuit, siding with the many, so as to pervert justice, nor shall you be partial to a poor man in his lawsuit.”

–Exodus 23
