Re: “ICE Had 89 Ada County Inmates Detained in 2016

Pursuing sanctuary city status is more than just risky politically - although that should be enough.

Flouting the law, and encouraging others to do the same, undermines the very foundations of our society - a very bad idea.

And - it won't be just the "good" illegal aliens coming to the sanctuary, the bad types will especially seek out sanctuary, knowing that the risk of consequences for their crimes will be low.

For many reasons, this would be a very bad move for Boise.

Re: “The Wrong Question: BW Probe Triggers Tort Claim

There is one huge unanswered question - Why would Mr. Dew decide to move to Idaho from Iowa? It appears to me that he is a professional activist, looking for another location to shake down with a contrived lawsuit. And Idaho looks like a prime target, with its highly conservative attitudes.

And - as to Mr. Dew's capabilities - the job he was seeking is a high-profile, high-stress job, requiring full-time competent attention. His disabilities can easily be seen to be detrimental to his job performance in the post he was seeking.

In addition, it was a huge mistake to tell the interviewers that Idaho could be "better", even if it is true. No job-seeker in his right mind would tell a prospective employer that their company "needed improving", and go on to suggest that he was the person to do it. The comment undoubtedly set off alarm bells for the interviewers.

One last question - is there an existing litany of complaints about the IDOL being unfairly discriminatory? If not, then it is almost certain that Mr. Dew is simply using his disabilities to extort money from Idaho.

Re: “The Wrong Side of History

This is Idaho. If you don't like it the way it is, then you may feel free to leave. If you decide to stay, then DO NOT try to force your views and opinions on us.
