Why do these guys go broke then reappear over and over. Who keeps giving them loans.

Re: “What Constitutes a 'Clean, Sober and Safe' House in Idaho?

Our governments need to put restrictions on where and how many people with a history of problems can live. These folks are the byproduct of a profiteering CJ system and a failed mental illness system.

What all these boohoo OPED articles fail to take into account is how these halfway houses totally screw up a neighborhood. It only takes one turd in the pool. Excessive noise, excessive dilapidated vehicles, late night activity, petty crime, and completely trashed rental houses. Why should we bother to keep up our home if these scumbag profiteers can drop a bunch of rowdy unsupervised probationers into the house next door without restriction? Even if these people are not drinking or drugging they smoke $200 a week in cigarettes. It creates an inescapable plume of stink engulfing a large area near the rental.

This imposition upon people who don't want our property values destroyed needs to become a campaign issue. There is a place and a need but you are intentionally crapping on the people paying the bills. You dump them in good neighborhoods for the residents to babysit. Disrespect for upstanding people and very bad judgment is at the core of the whole mess.

Re: “Why Doesn't Donald Trump's 'American Greatness' Include Bert and Ernie?

Sesame Street is a multi billion dollar enterprise and does not need corporate welfare from the Federal Government anymore. End of story.

Re: “Why Doesn't Donald Trump's 'American Greatness' Include Bert and Ernie?

Sesame Street sold itself to HBO in August of 2015.

The "Bert and Ernie" thing is cute, but the whole neighborhood got off welfare a year and a half ago, so "Sesame Street" isn't getting cut.

BW, did you check this at all?

Re: “Donald Trump's Table Manners

So Meals on Wheels funding isn't planned to be cut (" the Trump White House hasn't mentioned any proposed cuts to OAA") and it's unclear what fraction the Feds pay to fund the school lunch program ("It turns out that the federal government only partially pays for school lunches at a CEP school").

Is there any reporting in this story? Could you quantify the cuts on the table, and compare them to the amount funded through non-Federal means?

Re: “Once in a Lifetime

From eclipse2017.org -

Respectfully, professor, you must never have seen a total eclipse! A 90% partial eclipse is by NO MEANS anything CLOSE to seeing the full glory of totality. Boise is NOT a good place to see this eclipse. Please, everyone reading this article - get north into the path. Lots of great info on this is available on the various sites quoted in the comments, including eclipse2017.org.

YOU MUST BE IN THE PATH of totality to see all the wonder of a total eclipse. please do NOT stay in Boise, or you will wonder what all the fuss was about - and you will have missed the show! Get north INTO the path! No joke...

Oh yes, and the filters you need in order to safely view the partial phases of the eclipse cost no more than a dollar or so. Get them now! eclipseglasses.us

Re: “Once in a Lifetime

Also, this year's total solar eclipse will not be the first in Idaho in 99 years. The last one was in February, 1979. The 1918 eclipse was the last one to go across the entire country from Pacific to Atlantic coasts.

Re: “Once in a Lifetime

From the northernmost tip of Craters of the Moon, totality will last 1 min. 14 sec. Traveling a bit further north, to the center line, will increase the time of totality by 80%.

Re: “Climate Strange: Idaho's Tug of War on Climate Change

Carbon Fraud aptly named. The atmosphere is not analogous to an actual "greenhouse." It is a metaphor for what happens in a system that can trap heat, like a greenhouse. The earth's troposphere is 5 - 9 mi thick, not 8ft. The gases' (CO2, O2, N2, H2O, etc) interactions with solar radiation and earth's thermal radiation is much different in an 8ft high than in a 5-9 mi high box. It is also different at extreme concentration differences. Please show us the experimental data you are citing and the extrapolations used to compensate for the different concentrations, geometric differences, surface difference, effects of the glass or other material used for the enclosure, etc. Without this information, you're just being obtuse and blowing hot air. And contrary to Mick's belief, the 2nd Law of Thermo does not apply to a open system like our atmsophere.

Re: “Climate Strange: Idaho's Tug of War on Climate Change

I want to know why Al Gore, patron saint of the environmental movement in the US Congress and later on VEEP, just bought his SECOND mansion on the beaches of Monte Cito, California, where you would expect the rising seas to swallow up his new investment.

Re: “Climate Strange: Idaho's Tug of War on Climate Change

Fact: Anthropogenic CO2 = 0.0015% of the Atmosphere. Myth: 0.0015% of the atmosphere can control the average temperature of the Atmosphere and the Oceans violating the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics. Fact: The Sun Controls the Climate because the Sun Controls both the H20 and Carbon cycles, Dummies, and the PDO controls western wildfire frequency more than any other climate variable. Fact:You've been brainwashed. Fact:Before you unload on me, I never vote Repulsican and I think tRump is part of the Russian Mafia and should be impeached for his criminal activities.

Re: “Climate Strange: Idaho's Tug of War on Climate Change

If CO2 isn't the culprit, great, but if CO2 is causing the earth to warm so rapidly, it's probably too late to prevent the predicted catastrophes.

Re: “Climate Strange: Idaho's Tug of War on Climate Change

Jon - I am truly mystified as to how you think addressing climate change would line my own pockets. It is the fossil fuel industry that is flooding politicians with campaign donations, and I can assure you they are not donating to my campaign.

Re: “Once in a Lifetime

I'd like to make a correction. While Boise experiences a 99% partial eclipse, that city is NOT inside the path of totality, the only area you can witness nature's greatest sight. Boise is very close to totality, so all Boiseans are urged to take a short drive on I-84 inside the path of totality. You will never regret doing so.

Re: “Once in a Lifetime

The Total Eclipse of the Sun is a once in a lifetime opportunity to stimulate Americans to come together in their communities and learn about science and the workings of the universe.

Do you think it is possible for environmental groups across America to work together to help stimulate community discussions between students, teachers, family and friends about how to understand and communicate the science behind environmental issues? Here is an idea for a 7 generation project to kickstart this effort - starting with Earth Day and the National Marches For Science, April 22 and continuing on through the total Eclipse of the Sun on August 21 and into the long range future.

Re: “Climate Strange: Idaho's Tug of War on Climate Change

AGW is nothing but FRAUD only the mentally challenged believe in.

A simple greenhouse test:

- 20x20x8' greenhouse has 3,200 cubic feet
- The amount of CO2 is 1.28 cubic feet
- Does any grown sane adult honestly believe adding or removing 1 cubic foot of CO2 from the greenhouse is going to magically change the temperature by 2C?

If this was true why would anyone need to pay for energy to heat their house? All they would need to do is put a clear bubble on their roof and fill it with 100% CO2.

- The amount of CO2 increase since 1960 is equal to 7x7x7" in the greenhouse. Does anyone think this makes a difference?

- The fact is 224 cubic feet of CO2 is required to make the greenhouse temperature rise by 1C, about 70,000 PPM.

MSM and governments are scam artists, brainwashing the ignorant masses with fairy tales while they are taxed into oblivion.
