Re: “Bill to Limit Specialty License Plates Moves Forward

Why dont they pass a bill for the enforcement of the existing traffic laws like following to close, cutting across the center line at intersections, hitting pedestrians in the crosswalks and killing them, hitting bicyclists and killing them, agressive driving period.

Re: “Boehner to Obama: Back Off on Birth Control

I still dont know how Obama with no prior record of ever accomplishing anything except community service was ever elected as the President of the United States.
Forcing any religious afiliated employers to pay for birth control is against the religious beliefs of most religions. And forcing them to pay for birth control that is actually a personal choice is ridiculous in the first place. Some of these tactics resemble Hitlers in his early years of power in Germany.

Re: “Homicide No Longer a Leading Cause of Death in the U.S.

More old people more old people desease related deaths.
Poor economy less money from robbery to buy bullets for murder.
People that dont have much money dont go out where they can get robbed and murdered because cant afford to go out.
Basically many less people with money to be robbed and murdered.

Re: “Boise's link to the UFO World

I saw one in Idaho in 1978 south of Kuna. It flew right by the house we were living in with lights so bright you couldnt see its shape. It made no sound as would a plane or chopper. We were sober and completely awake while it flew under the powerlines and passed close enough to our yard to completely envelop it with light. Being at night I grabbed a flashlight and went around the back of the house to see where it went. It was only seconds but I found nothing there no light no craft nothing. That is when the hair on my neck raised up and the chills took over. There was only a plowed fiels back there and nothing could just land back there. I lived most of my life in the air traffic pattern of the Boise airport watching commercial and military jets night and day. I dont know what it was for sure that night but I do know it wasnt a plane or a chopper.

Re: “Cost of Rhoades Execution: $53,411

Last I heard the cost for incarceration for one year was about $50,000.
They could have saved close to half a million dollars in just incarceration costs over 10 years. That doesnt include the court costs lawyers etc. etc.
When primary education is allways cut back it sickens me to see so much money spent on murderers or criminals with no future possiblities. Example lifers with no possibilty of parole and repeat killers.

Re: “Boise Wins Federal Grant, Will Revisit Downtown Circulator

The existing rail line goes from the depot just above the University all the way to Nampa. I have allways beleived that by utilizing existing infrastructure it could provide a reasonable mass transit volume to back and forth from Nampa,Meridian and Boise.
This would reduce freeway and downtown traffic while improving air quality. It would also save taxpayers big dollars on fuel and vehicle wear and tear if it was accomplish ecconomically. More money in the peoples pockets means more money for the economy.
