While the media and national politicos are obsessed with President Trump’s performances and cabinet picks, the local crazies seem to be made of Teflon. No one seems to notice (or care) what they do.
Today Trump, at a prayer breakfast, called for prayers on behalf of a fellow TV performer, Arnold Schwarzenegger, because of low ratings.
In Boise Team Dave has launched a “snowball fight” with the Ada County Highway District over clearing the streets of snow.
The legislature got after a female member who said the only way for women to advance their lot at the Statehouse is to “spread their legs.”
The topper came when the Boise City Council passed a resolution designating Boise as a “welcoming city.” The resolution proclaims, “We urge all residents of Boise to do their part in reaching out and welcoming all those who live in and visit our great City.”
Not to be confused with a “sanctuary city,” the move is like someone selling “gluten-free coffee, low calorie water, creating a nuke-free zone, promoting diet and exercise for health, or offering chips with 20% less fat.”
Folks, it means NOTHING!
Boise School District is promoting a $172 million bond that “won’t raise taxes.” NOT!! They are promoting a bond that will create long term debt on every parcel or real estate in the district for $172 million over the next 20 years. We can only hope the kids they teach are smarter than the administration.
IF anyone has more examples of political theater, please share.
