Legislature Offers Free Uber Rides To Council

Declaring it’s time to “think outside the box and operate a free market economy,” Idaho Legislators voted Wednesday to offer free Uber Car rides to Boise City Councilors. The catch was the rides were good only to Ada County Highway District meetings.

Councilors were expected to discuss the impending closure of Jefferson Street with the ACHD Commishes. When the issue of “migration of services” to Meridian arose, North Idaho Legislators said it was sad to have migrant laborers in the health community, but perhaps Meridian is the place for them.

St. Luke’s offered to create a transit “mini-mall” as an enticement to City Councilors if they would close Jefferson without consent of the ACHD commishes who said they would “meditate,” but not pray on the question.

In a home stretch, down to the wire bid, Ada County Commishes told Guv. Butch Otter they would like him to veto the anti-slot machine horseless racing repeal bill. Chairman Jim Tibbs told the Guv., “Just because there are no horses and the windows are full of cherries, melons, bars, and lemons, doesn’t mean some April Fool can’t pick a winner once a year.”

    For no particular reason I am reminded of the Kenyan proverb: “When elephants fight the grass gets trampled”.

    And, also: “mine is bigger than yours”.

  3. Be nice if someone started a fund to provide free über rides for all of our politicians out of this state on the condition they never come back. Such a pity that the voters never venture past the incumbent choice on the ballot. The tree of liberty is dying due to lifer politicians being the norm.

    While such uninaminity amoung our current commishes is refreshing, their collective response and express conclusions are perfectly plausible considering the skill sets each brought to the BOCC table. What should we expect from a failed businessman and two gentlemen who have never had to worry where the the money which cashed their government paychecks came from?
    Put the saddles on their horses on backwards and I would bet this group of savvy cow-dudes would conclude that someone cut the their horse’s heads off and wind up leading them back to the horseless racing paddock by their windpipes.

  5. Hoping Uber does for taxi service what has done for the traditional sales-jerk:
