Idaho is better than Utah because these people can’t drive

One of the Deseret News columnists jokes when it comes to saying that Idaho is less sinful than Utah. WalletHub’s annual survey has often placed Utah at number one. This year, the salts have dropped considerably. Nevada is, as usual, the most sinful. After all, it’s a big gambling den. Considering the place has almost as many Latter-day Saints as Utah, that’s an odd designation. However, when Howard Hughes was alive, he hired church members primarily because he liked their honesty and reliability.

What made the newspaper columnist laugh is that Idaho is named the least sinful place in America. WalletHub says Idahoans aren’t jealous people and we do well on anger and hate. I’m not surprised by this one. There are so few Democrats here, there’s just no one to hate.

They drive like women!

I believe there is a bigger factor at play. Look at the people of Utah driving. Or try something akin to driving. They are dangerous, obnoxious and come too quickly back into the right lane after passing. You put Utah license plates on a car and suddenly the guy or girl behind the wheel is all doing like they’re all women!

The highway of death!

They think the Interstate is a drag strip. They sail there like the liberals of Oregon. Usually at speeds only seen on the Bonneville Salt Flats. It’s not better on their own roads. They also drive without ever checking their periphery and cling to the steering wheel like my co-religionists cling to prayer beads in times of crisis.

I don’t like the high fuel prices, but maybe the cost of the trip will keep them all south of Tremonton this summer. Or if you have to come, call Uber.

WATCH: What 25 historic battlefields look like today

What follows is an examination of what happened to the sites where America fought its most important and often brutal war campaigns. Using a variety of sources, Stacker selected 25 historically significant battlefields in American history. For each, Stacker investigated what happened there when the battles raged as well as what happened to those sacred lands when the fighting ceased.

It was the battlefields that defined the course of the American military, from colonial rebels to an invincible global war machine.
