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

That excess power that private solar generators provide can be used directly next door. Solar power on peoples homes populates the grid with power which lessens the amount of loss in the transmission of the power coming from far away plants. It is given to Idaho Power at the exact moment it is produced. Instead of Idaho Power having to build a Multi Million dollar power plant and extend those costs to Rate Payers solar investors are instead taking the hit in there own wallets to ensure clean power is delivered to their home. Idaho Power can sell the excess power they produce to another customer. One to one credit because Idaho Power then uses the power and resales it and they are therefore getting reimbursed for the power.

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: “Panera Bread Coming to Downtown Boise

DBreezy - There is ALREADY a Panera in Boise (just not Downtown) and 1 in Meridian

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 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!

The 4th should not be for politics but for the community in its entirety. I am sure that safety is the main concern for this group and centralization so that all may enjoy the celebrations of our countries birthday!

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.

Re: “The Nasty God

Dear Bill,

Thanks for your insightful opinion piece.

I identify as an evangelical but did not vote for Trump. While some of your claims about evangelical motives for their voting practices seem a bit excessive, I do think you're onto something by pointing to the theory of depravity as at the core of many evangelical perspectives.

I also think that you were right to point to the view of God as "nasty" as a further frame for prompting the voting patterns of many of my fellow evangelicals.

I will be quoting your opinion piece favorably in my upcoming lectures.

In appreciation,

Re: “The Nasty God

This article is speaking out of true and complete ignorance! Evangelicals came out in droves to keep Hillary out of office. They knew she would put up an anti-constitution Supreme Court pick, just as Obama did..
You don't judge the many for the mistakes of a few. The Word of God is becoming more and more true with every passing day! Your ignorance astounds me!
