Re: “Idaho Lawmakers Condemn Anne Frank Memorial Vandalism

This sounds like a false flag by Jews trying to get sympathy and free shekels for a monument they neglected to upkeep. Remember the 18 year old Israeli kid making bomb threats who was certainly a white racist Trump supporter?

Re: “St. Luke's Begins Massive Expansion

Let's not forget the Romans - their slaves had healthcare, and homes, and education for their children...but in the end, they were all slaves to the masters.

We have been slaves since the USD was taken off the gold standard. Or since the FED was created to regulate value....your call.

Re: “Solarizing the Treasure Valley, One Roof At a Time

This is such a nice warm fuzzy feelgood story. Those very expensive tax credits are paid for by all of us. It is actually not even near break even points under 60 years without generous welfare subsidies.

Then the typical ignorant attitude: "Idahos energy is already fifty percent from hydroelectric, said Snake River Alliance Executive Director Wendy Wilson. If Idaho replaces coal and natural gas with wind and solar power, we could be 100% green. Its not so far-fetched.

Hydro, wind and solar have one common characteristic. They are all sporadically available. Snake River flows are a trickle in winter. There would NO POWER on a calm Christmas Eve. Realism watch to Wendy Wilson....so nice you have that job. Maybe next you can be a rodeo director even though you do not know what a saddle is.

Re: “St. Luke's Begins Massive Expansion

This expansion should give us pause to contemplate the overall state of American health care and where it is headed in the future. Current health care expenditures exceeds $2.6T. We have tremendous resources, not so good allocation. I still see the President of the Pittsburgh Hospital struggling to justify his $2+M/year salary. The current increase in cost of health care and health care insurance is simply unsustainable, unless we are willing to accept a new form of feudalism where most of us become serfs to the medical community. We need an honest discussion of costs and income associated with a system that is a monopoly pure and simple.

Re: “Solarizing the Treasure Valley, One Roof At a Time

Buyer beware. Some panels being installed are old technology. Also sometimes people are raped by installation costs. Look into the new products from Tesla. Just in time for Mayor Bieter to fly F-35s over her roof too. Super!

Re: “Boise Police Investigating Burning of Gay Pride Flag

As an American and a member of the GLBTQIA community, if you burn either flag at a protest rally I would be offended at the disrespect for the symbolic meaning of the flags. Even though it is " Free Speach". However, to do so after trespassing on private property is a assault on the persons flying the flag.

Re: “Boise Police Investigating Burning of Gay Pride Flag

Burn the American flag, your all good.
Burn a gay pride flag, your going to hang!
WTF! I have nothing against one's life choices but one act can't be called free speech and the other a hate crime.

States can make just about any law they want concerning alcohol per the amendment that ended prohabition as long as the law is enforced evenly.

Re: “Curbside Compost Bins Rolling Toward Boise Households

Won't compost from grass clippings in this town be laden with herbicides? That includes compost from the City's herbicide-doused Parks. I would not use Boise City compost, given the chemical application craziness that goes on in this town.

Re: “Curbside Compost Bins Rolling Toward Boise Households

Should I leave my compost/mulch pile in my backyard or let the government pick it up for me? And increase my trash collection by 40%? The government thinks it has all the solutions. When in reality all they want to do is charge you for moving the compost pile thus increasing the carbon footprint. Sorry but government seldom has a good solution.

Benj-
Please read the article. The building owner is to blame. They didn't renew the lease so another business is going to fill the space.
