Will "Blueprint for Good Growth" morph into Boise Trolley Gate?
successful, ADA's land use plan needs teamwork," cries the editorial page of
the Idaho Statesman. "It will take a lot of money to write an ambitious
document to guide land use and transportation across ADA County," added the
Statesman. "Boise Mayor Dave Bieter and ADA County Commissioner Judy
have set aside their differences to
work together to seek
more money to finish the Blueprint for Good Growth,"
the Statesman concluded.
The Idaho Statesman has no idea how socialist it is. Nor has the Statesman
learned anything about Boise’s recent $136 million University Place fiasco
which is still under civil and federal investigation.
absent a socialist government, the free market automatically takes care of
all land use “problems” since the land under discussion is – or should be –
private property. Individuals control private property, not the state. The
problem occurs – as in the University Place fiasco – when the government
pretends to play private enterprise and botches up every development they
touch. Not only that, governmental intervention invites so-called
public-private land use scam artists such as Cryptic Partners in Boise’s
Watergate fiasco, plus the hoards of lobbyists, lawyers, and power-hungry
politicians. We don’t need government “teamwork” to solve “Ada’s” supposed
“land use” problems. We need private property rights and private
Second, how much
money is “a lot of money to write an ambitious document to guide land use
and transportation?” $815,000 says the Statesman. And the socialist
exterior decorators are $219,500 short, even though Boise and Ada County are
each dumping another $50,000 into the socialist pot – or should I say plot.
Why is it a plot? For the same reasons that the University Place fiasco was
a plot. A shark frenzy plot to route taxpayer money into the pockets of the
Third, who are the
land development perps this time around? And what is this euphemistic
socialist document called the “Blueprint for Good Growth?” The players are
Boise Mayor Dave Bieter and, oh-oh, Ada County Commish Judy Peavey-Derr?
Say, wait a minute. Wasn't Judy Peavey-Derr the Chairbabe of the ADA County
Commission's 11-member Committee for Selection of the Court House
Developers, Cryptic Partners (then known as Wilmore Holdings from California
in about 1996 and who are now under civil and criminal investigation for the
University Place scandal)? According to www.followthemoney.org, Judy Peavey-Derr received a political donation
from Wilmore Holdings (now Cryptic Partners) who won the bid. Whoa,
conflict of interest? (Lawyer-lobbyist Roy Eiguren, major perp in the
University Place fiasco, is currently lobbying a 14-member legislative
Transportation Committee to build a light rail choo-choo train system for
Ada County.) Teamwork, indeed.
We don’t need more
teamwork. We need individual rights. We don’t need more taxes. We need
tax relief. We don’t need more socialism. We need more private enterprise
and free market. And finally, we don’t need another Boise Watergate fiasco,
a Boise’s Trolley Gate: Choo-Choo Train Crack-Up & All The Governor’s Men.
The socialist Idaho Statesman can throw its transportation “Blueprint for
Good Growth” into the trash with the University Place’s Blueprint for
Education Bankruptcy – the investigation of which has already cost the Idaho
taxpayers over $1,000,000 to date.
