Re: “Can Police Prevent the Next Charlottesville?

Racism is bad. Race baiting is worse. Political parties using it to sew division is the worst.

There are only a handful of political topics dividing the two parties. On the inside they are identical. Therefore something emotionally inflammatory is needed to make the parties look different on the outside. The topic chosen to be divisive for the next election is the old reliable race topic. Abortion is no longer a big divider. Islamaphobia crosses party lines too. Minimum wage makes inflation. Anti-war is not viable with a well paid voluntary military. Environment is not hot when we are driving 500hp cars and still clobbering the Arabs with cheap oil. Corruption in politics is so so very deep on both sides they can't go there. So after brief deliberations the topic of race has been raised up the flagpole again. Race is the gift that keeps on giving for political operatives. The vile aspects of our society of all races and genders make it and even stronger tool.

"Why do we continue to be fooled by these political worms" should be the headline.

Re: “UPDATED: More Idaho Politicians Weigh in on Charlottesville Violence

The Russian connection has played out with no results. Soros must now reheat the race war. Everyone with an average IQ or less grab a sign and act really upset that you live the best lives of any minorities anywhere on earth. It's just not fair that whites still live well too! America sucks.

Destroy America. Socialism Now! http://www.reuters.com/article/us-venezuela-animals-idUSKCN1AW2NN

PS: I do agree Trump is a wacko but his name is not Clinton, Bush, Obama, or Sanders, so I'll accept it.

Crapo, Simpson and Risch condemn racism but continue to support their racist leader -- oh the hypocrisy.

Oh BooHoo! Perhaps they should freeload somewhere cooler in the Summer months. I see they have booze and smokes. They cost more than a bus ticket to Seattle.

Re: “Campfire Stories

Lets clean up our air quality by cleaning up the wildland firefighting industry. They dither around with the fires for as long as possible. It damages our health. It costs more than it should. It denies us use of our wildlands.

Re: “Homegrown Boise Neighborhood Protest Results in Homegrown Compromise

Keep in mind if a developer or homeowner comply with existing permitting codes. they are entitled to build. If the City refuses the grant approval, it is liable for taking a property right.

Re: “Homegrown Boise Neighborhood Protest Results in Homegrown Compromise

It's a tough balance. Higher density, but still single family, housing (a.k.a. infill) keeps traffic and long commute air pollution down for all, but has to be balanced with the character of the neighborhood. The city needs to create house size/lot size constraints as well as consider street/garage parking. Builders/developers will need to be flexible and creative to accommodate parking needs while minimizing disturbances to neighbors. Neighbors need to be flexible and understand that landowners have property rights to respect. It sounds like this was a case where all those aspects were met for a compromise solution. We need more middle ground solutions like this - there's no "me" in compromise.

Re: “Cop vs. Cops: The Case of Brandon Eller vs. The Idaho State Police

Referring to Eller by his first name in the story isn't unusual. He's already been introduced by both names. No editor worth her/his salt wants to see certain names and words repeated during a story. Apparently some people need to gripe about something everyday. The story is very balanced. It's also under reported elsewhere in media. Give the Weekly some credit for going where others don't tread.
