Re: “Dry Creek Ranch Plan is a Lesson For Yesterday

The Ada County Commissioners have the power to stop it. Yes it should have been stopped 10 years ago and it will be painful to stop now...but better than regretting not taking a bold action today. They have the power and they can change the outcome. Saying they can't is a cop out, as is holding the vote at 9am on Tuesday when public participation will be minimal.

Re: “Video: Trump's First Solo Press Conference Was a Sight to Behold

I watched Trumps speech over and over with a local group at a meeting center. We thought it was quite well done; like he said he didn't rant and rave. He and the reporters were joking with each other. Numerous times the news reports have been proven to be false. Reporters themselves have even stated on air that they don't care so much about truth just so they are first to get on the air with a story. If people can't see that our country has been in trouble for years and years they must be deaf and blind. Government has spent excessive amounts of money; given unbelievable sums of cash plus weapons to Iran; crippled the military; drained SS; saddled us with piss poor health coverage; hundreds of people killed in Chicago alone; California is bankrupt & still following Gov Brown down the tubes;parents letting their kids skip school to protest - forget their education;fraudulent voting; the list goes on and on. God Bless America!

Re: “Trump Keeps Getting Asked About Anti-Semitism, But He Doesn't Seem to Have an Answer

This piece typifies so much of the reporting about Trump. He isn't anti-Semitic, has family members and staff that are Jewish, etc. But, because he doesn't play the media's game of repeatedly answering their "gotcha" questions, he is encouraging anti-Semitism? Just like when he denounced David Duke repeatedly, but didn't hear a question properly on CNN and said he didn't know Duke, the left claims he supports the KKK. The majority of media reporting about Trump is INCREDIBLY dishonest and despicable.

Trump is nothing but an egotistical ignoramus. He bitches and complains about fake news but the news reports what comes out of his mouth!! Go figure!! Oh and referring to the New York Times as the FAILING NEW YORK TIMES just because they see through him is utterly ridiculous.

It is interesting to me that Ted will invest in the equipment necessary to scan IDs and do a background check for a club goer to enter the premise but refuses to invest in a simple wand metal detector that would deter weapons and keep the club safer. Why Ted?

Based on the language of the bill, I doubt he has any idea what meaningful immigration reform is much less anything about immigration.

Re: “ICE Had 89 Ada County Inmates Detained in 2016

How long do we hold them and how much does it cost, including manpower hours, the Idaho taxpayers to do this for ICE? We should hold them as we would any criminal and release or imprison them the same way. We do not pay our police and facilities to be used for detention centers for non-criminals.

Re: “ICE Had 89 Ada County Inmates Detained in 2016

Pursuing sanctuary city status is more than just risky politically - although that should be enough.

Flouting the law, and encouraging others to do the same, undermines the very foundations of our society - a very bad idea.

And - it won't be just the "good" illegal aliens coming to the sanctuary, the bad types will especially seek out sanctuary, knowing that the risk of consequences for their crimes will be low.

For many reasons, this would be a very bad move for Boise.

Re: “SPLC Report Counts Idaho Anti-Muslim Groups

Shelley... what is it, Smith? no offense, but you're wrong. It doesn't matter what or who Trump is. What matters is who people think he is....how can you say that this article is ignorant? It's mostly regurgitated data from other sources, it's not a fckn opinion piece... this article states facts, you know what those are right? I personally don't know that much about hate groups in the US... but I'm sure you know ALL about them... sry for the language BW.

Re: “SPLC Report Counts Idaho Anti-Muslim Groups

As far as I'm aware President Trump doesn't hate Muslims and is not telling anyone to hate them. Some of these groups are not hate groups some truly are. There are terrorists in the USA however and we do not want them no matter what they call themselves. This article is ignorant and creating more fear and hate.

Re: “They Pledge Allegiance: Foreign Born, Americans All

I have to ask, when Obama executed the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015, was anyone who are concerned about the same travel restrictions saying anything in public back then? See this...https://sethfrantzman.com/2017/01/28/obama…

Re: “They Pledge Allegiance: Foreign Born, Americans All

With any luck, we can settle so many refugees in our area, that our culture will become more diverse, and a lot less redneck. I would MUCH rather see more Syrian refugees and less right-wing nutbags refugees from more liberal states. Congratulations to the new Idahoans...live long and prosper.

Re: “ACHD: Idaho Law is 'Ambiguous' on Who Should Be Shoveling Boise Streets

Achd should be abolished dismantled and the responsibility of the safety of the citizens in Boise should go to Boise. The complete lack of responsibility or wanting to take responsibility of achd in their statements and lack of effort lack of doing anything until forced to is the proof.

Re: “Downtown Deep Freeze

Clearly achd should be abolished. I saw a newscast earlier in the year where they were interviewed by a new station regarding snow plows. I was astonished at the persons who is in charge of this operation response, basically he said, what are we supposed to do just have truck sitting around in the parking lot waiting around for the possibility of a snowstorm... Unsatisfactory is how I found that response. I believe it was within two days we were in a blizzard and I thought of that stupid comment or rather a careless comment from the individual. We live in a snow state, there is absolutely no excuse for not being prepared clearly achd was not. The apathy was at a high level all you had to do was walk anywhere downtown to see that that they gave no care or thought to where they were dumping or snow they wiped out all the sidewalks they didn't make any kind of safe passage at crosswalks it was Despicable and beneath contempt and my vote is they need to go.
