Re: “Debt Limit Deadline Extended, But Decision Looms

Umm, you apparently know nothing about our government apparently. The fed is a government agency that manages our money by selling treasury bonds to cover our debt, which is bought by foreign countries and american citizens with a promise of returning that money with interest at the end of the term purchased for.

Persons in charge of the federal reserve banks are appointed by the president, and must report to the House of Representatives, and is responsible for maintaining cash supplies to ensure our economy remains solvent. It also collects interest from banks that are loaned money, and is one of the few government agencies that does not collect taxes and returns a profit to our government.

Maybe you should educate yourself before spewing off propaganda you heard from some tv commentator, making yourself look stupid in the process.

Re: “"My Client is Over a Barrel, Your Honor"

People do realize this is simple machinery, and not large amounts of oil, right? How is this bad for Idaho at all.

Re: “Proposed Roadblocks for Nine Popular Bus Routes

I would like to have this read at one of the public meetings if possible. I would greatly appreciate anyone that could help me with this since I cannot be there personally. If anyone has questions please contact me directly at

I currently live out of the area, but as a former dependent on Boise area public transportation I can tell you that eliminating service in one of the most poorly served metropolitan areas of the nation during an economic slowdown that is leaving more people unable to drive than ever will be a disaster. I believe that mass transportation is something that should grow over time instead of shrink, and that if funding is shorted then, a new funding source should be found such as a regional sales tax allowed by Idaho state law. Even half a cent on purchases made in Ada and Canyon county will alleviate any shortcoming of the budget for Valleyride, and allow them to not only save these critical routes, but to increase and market the bus as a commuter tool. Not only will this make the bus more viable as an option, but it will increase income further through fare payment while saving commuters and dependents of the bus service time and hassle of getting places. Increasing hours of service will save something we all depend on, our air. By more people riding public transportation we can cut down on air pollution and ozone buildup in the atmosphere of the Treasure Valley. In conclusion, bus service should be increased with a new funding source, and promoted to increase ridership to improve the quality of life for all that residents of the Treasure Valley cherish.
