Too busy to debate
No, this time it isn't Sali or Risch, it's House Majority Leader Mike Moyle. Seems he's too busy to debate with Nancy Merrill for the upcoming Republican primary. He says that he's too busy farming, I'd say he's too busy collecting farm subsidies.Welfare is only bad when poor people are using it to feed their kids.
While I realize that the fact that Idaho Legislator-farmers receiving farm subsidies is not anything new, it's still pretty interesting. You can have some fun on the Farm Subsidy Database website.
Rep. Thomas F. Loertscher (R)'s interests: $943,937 from 1995-2006

Rep. Dell Raybould (R)'s interests: $715,905 from 1995-2006
Rep. John Stevenson (R): $179,340 from 1995-2001
Rep. Tom Trail (R)'s interests: $69,906 from 1995-2002

Historic ‘Blockbuster’ Store Offers Glimpse Of How Movies Were Rented In The Past
It is amazing that in the future (less than 25 years from now) our kids may need information like this to let them know what renting videos at a store was all about. Before Netflix or Redbox or iTunes or video on-demand. When I think about how much things have changed in my lifetime, I can't wait to see what changes are coming. My wife and I were talking about this the other day. Remember in Back To the Future II when they go to the future 2015 (seven years from now) and Mary is looking around his future house? There is a scene where his son "Marty Jr" is int he family room watching multiple TVs and he watches the "Art channel". Well, you can get Plasma and LCD TVs that have SD card slots that allow you to view your own art on them. Talk about life imitating entertainment.

If you are interested in cheap gas here is your chance.
From 43rd state blues
Cheap gas in Boise on Tuesday, May 6
Minnick campaign partners with local business to
offer gas at $2.26 per gallon from 10 to 11 a.m.
The Minnick for Congress campaign is partnering with the Cole Village Chevron station to offer discounted gas for one hour on Tuesday, May 6. Walt Minnick will be at the station tomorrow from 10 to 11 a.m., pumping gas and talking to drivers.
The gas will be discounted Tuesday at the exact time Congressman Bill Sali sits down to a $1,000-a-plate lunch with oil lobbyists in Washington, D.C. The lunchtime fundraiser for the Sali campaign has been advertised via e-mail.
“This is exactly what’s wrong with Washington,” Minnick said Monday. “Idahoans are being pummeled at the pump while their congressman is hobnobbing with the very people who are getting filthy rich from high gas prices. Sali should be taking a tough stance with the oil lobbyists, not looking to them for a handout.”
Regular gasoline at the Cole Village Chevron is currently $3.59 per gallon. From 10 to 11 a.m. Tuesday, the station will sell regular for $2.26 a gallon, the price in January 2007 when Sali took office. The Minnick for Congress campaign will pay the difference.
“The people of Idaho deserve a man in Washington who will work for them, not someone who works for people making record profits on the backs of Idaho drivers,” Minnick said.
