Re: “Singing With Angels

Saw the film in Utah - it's phenomenal. So much better than anything I expected and I highly recommend it.

Re: “Camp

Great movie. Incredible it is based on a real camp right here in Idaho! Very heartwarming story and well written. I loved that 50% of my proceeds will go back to our local camp to help foster children!

Re: “127 Hours

One of the best movies I have ever seen, James Franco perfectly portray's the desperation and confusion I'm sure was going through Aron Ralston's head during the ordeal. The score, composed by A.R. Rahman (with the help of Sigur Ros, Dido, and others) is genius and so perfectly goes along with the action, it seems the universe itself was playing it. This is the greatest movie of the past few years and is a must see for anyone and everyone. (some parts are rather graphic, so be careful if your squeamish)

Re: “The Counselor

A disappointment. However, cool furniture. (The scene where Fassbender & Cruz decide to escape to "Boise" is both painful and priceless.)

Re: “Jewish Prisoners Win Truly Kosher Meal Plan at Idaho Prison

There is a little thing called the First Amendment that prohibits the government from forcing you to violate your religious beliefs. If you don't want to pay the enormous price of feeding your prisoners religiously acceptable food then don't lock them up and take responsibility for their care and welfare.

Re: “Boise Police Body Cams: How Footage is Changing Probes Into - and Outcomes of - Police Shootings

I find it of interest that this article says the officer was cleared by Blaine County Prosecutor Jim Thomas. It does not document either in the text or in the video that the dead suspect actually had a gun, having said that a non police person had made that allegation. Just wondering, was there a gun and is there contemporary video that shows it in the possession of the dead suspect?

Cops are nothing but costumed thugs.

Re: “Half the World: Excerpts from a New Book About Refugees in Boise

Foreign blood in our land should not be tolerated, and especially not encouraged. Boise was founded by whites, built by whites, and intended to be the birthplace of whites. We won our land from the natives fair and square. What business has an African here? Half the damn continent has an IQ below 70--retarded in other words. Let enough Africans in and we'll be like Detroit.

Re: “Heather Booth

I did not gleen from this story that she wants to change our government type. And I do not think that the previous person's conclusion "that everything else she says can be discounted" is fair or even logical. I think he missed the point . She is simply suggesting that people should speak out and organize with others to bring issues to the fore. She also suggests that the citizens of this country could understand more complex issues than we are given credit for being able to do and that sound bites and twitters keep us from drawing our own conclusions.

Re: “Heather Booth

"We have to take back our "small-d" democracy."

We don't have a democracy, and never have. We have a republic, thankfully. Assuming she knows the difference, she's doing us a disservice by trying to change our government type--democracy always leads to a tyranny of the majority. If she doesn't know the difference, then anything else she says can be discounted.

Re: “UPDATED: ACHD Votes to Make Fifth, Sixth Streets Two-Way

Kak Elzinga said it perfectly. We need those direct shot streets with 2-3 lanes. How are the businesses doing on Capitol & 9th Sts? Do they need the same change?
I park & walk a few blocks to shop or eat on 5th & 6th, as I do on 9th & Capitol.
To those businesses who want more pedestrian traffic: are they making themselves desirable enough? Are they making themselves worth the park & walk of a few blocks?

Re: “At Boise Bicycle Project, City Council Candidates Get Their Say

Frank Walker is the clear choice for district 2. His years of experience as a Deputy Attorney General, Ada County Commissioner, Garden City Attorney, and lifelong Idaho resident make him extremely qualified for the Council. Walker loves this city and will work hard to continue our efforts to make it the best place to live in the country.

Re: “October 5, 2017: What to Know

Kasich is a Democrat. Not that its all that distinguishable from Republicans any longer but hes a RINO which makes him a Democrat. You cannot trust any words a politician speaks. Only their votes matter.

Re: “In Plain Sight

If he chooses to do so, Guide Dogs For The Blind will supply a dog, free of charge, and will help educate the public. They will train him, and the dog, to avoid overhead blocks. A dog that will walk its owner into a tree limb is not a properly trained guide dog. I should know. I raised one and belong to Guide Dogs For The Blind.
