Re: “Trump Hiring Freeze Unplugs Ovens at Job Corps, Impacts Boise Rescue Thanksgiving Meal for Homeless

This is FAKE NEWS people.... It was no surprise that I was retiring, there was a decision made to discontinue all the community projects from that point by the Job Corp. It does not have anything to do with Trump... There is plenty of trained staff and students willing to do the work. Signed Chef Jack D'Orazio and so true this is such a generous community I will volunteer my services anytime!!

Jude, the headline is not misleading. From the article, Due to a federal hiring freeze mandated by President Donald Trump, the program can't hire a new instructor.

Re: “Trump Hiring Freeze Unplugs Ovens at Job Corps, Impacts Boise Rescue Thanksgiving Meal for Homeless

There is no crisis and our holiday meal celebrations are going to be as great as ever. Because this is the most generous community on the face of the earth, our turkey challenge is answered by another local business. We will still need to raise (gather, not grow) 5,000 turkeys to serve all of the orders for food boxes that we'll have for Thanksgiving and Christmas, so help out your neighbors folks, and donate a turkey to the Mission!

Re: “Trump Hiring Freeze Unplugs Ovens at Job Corps, Impacts Boise Rescue Thanksgiving Meal for Homeless

The title of this article is misleading. Please stop bashing the President for something he had no control over. The BRM Program is at fault for this problem because they should have had a second in command when the chef retired.

Re: “Oct. 23, 2017: What to Know

Still waiting for a response to my comment on police killing of a suspect. "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?" posted at 10/18/2017 at 3:12 PM

Re: “Racist, Violent, Unpunished: A White Hate Group's Campaign of Menace

Great article about Antifa! You are reporting about Antifa right? Mostly white, violent, being trained and funded, essentially a racist political terrorist group who attacks people based on skin color and ideological alignment. Hides their faces behind masks. George Soros funds Antifa and is a Nazi collaborator. I have the interview recorded where he admits this. Great article about Antifa!

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: “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.

Watch. Next legislative session, they'll pass a bill forbidding cities to change the name of holidays.

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.
