Hilarious: If Idaho Founders Had Social Media Pages in the 1800s

If Idaho Founders Had Rants and Raves Social Media Pages
I can't imagine we are the first generation to have this kind of issue, but the ease with which we can complain to the world is exponentially elevated thanks to our technology. Could you imagine if the founders of Idaho had a rants and raves page where they could air their grievances and praise? They at least had more real things to be unhappy about.
