Re: “COMPASS Open House

COMPASS is a 3rd party player in the grand scheme of all things transportation related. They have no authority over transportation yet are deemed essential by especially the smaller transportation entities as well as VRT. Their functions relate primarily to planning and funding (Federal funds, not local) My feeling is that taxpayers would be far better served in airing their feelings, suggestions and yes, even complaints, to an agency directly involved in making decisions, i.e. your local highway district, City Council, Planning & Zoning Dept or even school district. All those have a large voice in transportation related decisions. If that agency happens to be ACHD your elected Commissioner would be happy to speak with you.

Re: “Do You Have What it Takes to Be Cultural Ambassador of Boise?

Another created position to bloat the budget and make us think it's important. We don't NEED lessons in culture if culture is generated organically by the community on its own. It sounds like someone is unhappy with organic Boise culture and wants to shape or reinvent it.

David Graeber explains where this is all going here-

The correct source URL is https://www.lego.com/en-us/stores/events/a…

The date is July 8 THROUGH 23, not July 8 AND 23, according to the source.

Re: “Boise's Capital City Public Market Kicks Off While Demonstrators Call for Trump's Tax Returns

For Susan Bakersmith:

"The returns stated that Trump made $150 million in 2005 and that he paid $38 million in taxes, which equaled about 25 percent of his income certainly not fitting the liberal narrative that rich Americans dont pay their fair share or that Trump is a tax evader."

From:

Kind of sucks when those pesky old FACTS get in the way of the liberal desperation diatribe, huh?

Re: “Boise's Capital City Public Market Kicks Off While Demonstrators Call for Trump's Tax Returns

It's about what he is hiding in his taxes and if he actually has paid any since his last tax returns were shown. They were over ten years old and showed he paid no taxes. And if he thinks playing this game is cute he's got another thing coming. He is a lier and sexual predator and is going to get us into WWIII at the rate he is going. I want a president who is scandal free and honest. And doesn't play golf every weekend on the taxpayer's dime.

Re: “Boise's Capital City Public Market Kicks Off While Demonstrators Call for Trump's Tax Returns

Mitt Romney should have told that worthless thief Harry Reid that he would match him year for year on releasing returns. That would have shut up Harry for good. This whole tax return thing is just an example of why so many good people choose not to subject themselves and their family to vicious inaccurate attacks.

I hope you all found the well hidden news that Melania Trump just a $3 million verdict from the toilet paper trash newspaper that had tried to sully her past. Now that is justice.

Re: “Boise's Capital City Public Market Kicks Off While Demonstrators Call for Trump's Tax Returns

I have no idea why people are so obsessed with his tax returns. I get it that the last modern presidents have done it voluntarily and also some might think he's hiding something, but it's a voluntary thing and Trump is choosing not to do it. You lost move on, not that big of a deal.
It is just more protesting of the election by the ignorant and the misinformed. Cultural Marxist hard at work... If they were so worried about the taxes, the demonstration would be about Auditing the Federal Reserve, so that in itself shows yoy it has nothing to do with his taxes...

Re: “Facing Auschwitz

I meet Ruth Treason, who wrote "The Long Walk", how she survived the Holocaust but lost her parents and baby sister until the Soviet soldiers rescued her after 3 years in Auschwitz. Ruth, may she rest in peace, passed away last years at 83 years young.
She was the most vibrant individual I ever met - her attitude was to make the most of the life she was granted. Had 3 sons and is also survived by her husband Emil.

Take care, Larry Polsky.

Re: “Shoppers Without Borders: Boise's New Mobile Market

Gotta confess, I was thinking more of the local merchants - "Reggie's Veggies," the Stonehenge (Overland/Columbus) etc., as opposed to Walmart or Freddie's, when I composed my comment.

Re: “Shoppers Without Borders: Boise's New Mobile Market

The produce comes from farmers who sell at the Boise Farmers' Market, and are also trying to make a living growing and selling food. Not to mention competing with the Wal-Marts of the world, whose employees are the ones using food stamps so that Wal-Mart can get away with paying them a minimum wage that is in no way a living wage. And competing with cheap grocery store processed foods, which our government also systematically subsidizes. I think the grocery stores can probably handle the competition.

Re: “Shoppers Without Borders: Boise's New Mobile Market

To bikeboy, I think you may have one detail wrong. This "government subsidized produce" is from our local farmers markets. It looks like this mobile market is only encouraging people who already receive SNAP benefits to eat more local and fresh. Shouldn't we want that? I know I would rather have someone spend $10 dollars buying from local farmers than at Wal Mart buying cheap food. Plus, I have been to this market once to check it out, and they are only at certain spots for a couple of hours a week. I think our other merchants should be able to compete with a produce stands that only sells for a couple of hours, right?

Re: “Travels with Sharlie

My mother saw Sharlie in the early 1960's. She said that she looked across the lake and saw three humps in the water. She was very shocked by what she saw. She never saw him again. But after seeing him, she became a believer. She was not the type to believe in aliens or monsters. One time in 1983, my husband and I were laying on the beach when a huge wave came toward us. We had to run into the trees to keep from being hit by the wave. There were no boats in the area. We couldn't figure out what caused the wave, unless, of course, Sharlie had swam past us.

Re: “Shoppers Without Borders: Boise's New Mobile Market

Other than the fact that it's government-subsidized competition against merchants who are trying to make a living selling food, it sounds like a good idea. (But on the bright side, when those merchants go out of business they can probably get some government-subsidized produce from the rolling produce stand.)

Yeah, a connection that the American People in general had nothing to do with. It was the farmers who started the whole mess.
