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

I am also a motorist, cyclist, pedestrian and I live downtown. Two way streets will provide more entertainment with more close calls between cyclists, pedestrians and motorists. Woo, woo

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

I am a motorist AND a cyclist AND a pedestrian, and converting the streets to two-way will not help me while I am walking, biking, or driving. I rarely see eye-to-eye with Otter on anything, but I completely agree with his sentiments quoted in this article.

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

Downtown Boise has already become a punishing trek on most days. Parking is bad or too expensive, and more consideration is given to bicyclists and pedestrians than motorists who need to get to work, want to see a show, or go shopping. The city needs to cater to residents, not just the tourists.

Homelessness doesn't cause addiction.

Re: “Leaders Break Ground on Housing-First Development for Chronically Homeless in Boise

"According to a Boise State University study, 100 chronically homeless Boiseans cost the community at least $5.3 million per year"

How to 100 people each cost $53,000 per year which is more than the average household income for the USA and higher than the average household income for all of Idaho, both cases meaning multiple people!?!? Government inefficiency again or what?

I know that this article will ultimately help at least one individual out there who is struggling, and that would be plenty. Thank you again to Boise Weekly and Lex Nelson!

Re: “President Trump's Move on DACA Leaves Idahoans in Limbo

You can't be serious he isn't pushing for exactly "That" he ran his campaign on a promise of mass deportation if congress does pass an immigration reform it won't be because of bigoted ideology

Re: “President Trump's Move on DACA Leaves Idahoans in Limbo

""It would be better to have immigration reform, but how it is with Donald Trump in office, I don't see anything happening," Estrada said."

Mr Estrada should put aside the left wing dogma and realize that President Trump is pushing for exactly that, immigration reform. Congress is finally feeling the pressure to act instead of bloviate.

Re: “Idaho Power Residential Customers Will See Rate Increases, Effective Today

>Last time I checked even Idaho Power employees have to pay a power bill, including the CEO. It's got nothing to do with corporate greed or corruption.

Let's do the math. You're the CEO of Idaho Power, you increase rates and your electric bill goes up by 3%. You also get a 3% raise. Hmmm.... dunno about you but I'd gladly pay an extra 3% on electric if it meant I got a 3% raise on my salary.

You chose to forget on 9/11? That's sad. 9/11 is not about a storm or illegals in our country.
Here's something the Clinton's Bush's and Obama tried very hard to hide forever.

Re: “Sept. 7, 2017: What to Know

Wtf? "Liberal"? I'm proud to be socially liberal in respect to everyone's choice to live and worship how they please, as long as they're not interfering with the pursuit of happiness of others.

Not sure how "liberalism" has anything to do with promoting murder, so check yourself. The system apparently failed us all, and that's not a product of one side vs. another.

Redirect: My family sends much love to Simon's friend's and loved ones. We are so sad for your loss.

Re: “Sept. 7, 2017: What to Know

Oh look, another failed liberal cause! Bruce Marchant. Read prior statesman articles about this POS and how the SJW and rental profiteers made it possible for him to survive as a bottom feeder for several years in Boise. Ironic it was the landlord's child he killed, but could have been anyone. Some people simply need to be exterminated like the bugs they are. Idiot SJW want to give them unlimited chances to redeem themselves.
