Re: “Driverless In Boise?

Another A.I. foot in the door. Another jobless job builder. Where does it end? Also, when does this so-called 4.4% unemployment rate start generating some improved wages? With a UE rate that low....you'd think we already would have a minimum wage at $12+ an hour, right? Maybe the 4.4% is fake news. Just like the idea that we'll all be still employed when the robots take over.

Re: “One Hot Potato

So, where is the line on inviting and dis-inviting speakers? If Hillary "they are superpredators" Clinton was to speak the Riverside, would she be dis-invited? I doubt it. All the so-called minority loving liberals would flock to see her. I would not go to see Murray. I would not go to see Hillary. But those that want to go see either one of them or both of them should be able to. Although Hillary can always call up Crowds on Demand and hire an audience if she had to.

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-

Re: “F-35s in Boise? 'We Don't Know What We Don't Know'

The F-35 venture began in the 1990s under Bill Clinton as a Military Industrial capital expedition that was designed to capture a 50 state commitment from Congressional and local leaders to secure a massive expenditure for investors gain. The project was designed to be a money pit for profit. Genuine aerospace experts have been fighting this boondoggle for years and years. It's meant to make money, not perform. This is much like the F-111 project that ended up flopping as advertised, only the F-35 is a much bigger flop. Recently, the UK Parliament has asked for a review of their participation in this, as are other nations. Also.....this plane is very loud.

Re: “For Rent: Boise's Historic-Low Vacancy Rate Triggers a Flood of New Apartments

I noticed this tidbit.

----Also on Johnson's wall is a framed JPM ledger page, circa 1958, showing rentals ranging from $40 to $45 a month. That's a far cry from what the U.S. Housing and Urban Development Department today calls "affordable."----- Then this......----Affordable Rent for a family of four in each of the categories would be $615 (Extremely Low), $804 (Very Low), $1,286 (Low) and $1,929 (Workforce).-----

If you run $45 via a inflation calculator for 1958, you will see it's $381. I'd say that $615 is too much by 2X. End Dollar Devaluation.
