Re: Migration

If they bring back the draft, I'm migrating my whole family to Canada. We're really not interested in supporting a holy war for Israel and I'll be dammed if I'm going to sacrafice any of us for such a silly reason. God shoot Bush please.

Re: Migration

I moved to Boise about 25 years ago from S. Florida. I left S. Florida because it was flat, hot, humid and crowded I was looking for something different. I considered the physical environment, the climate (not to cold) and some other things like the having a university. I had never set foot in Boise before I packed up and moved. I got here is 1979 when it seemed like everyone lese was leaving! But I stayed and I am happy I did. But, I have to confess, had I realized the extreme conservatism of the culture here, I may very well have made another decision. But here I am and I love Boise.

Re: Migration

I come from a small village , called Emmett. One day when I was but 13 , we loaded up the wagon to make the journey across the desert . The wagon broke down and we had to shoot the mule , but after many grueling minuets in the desert ,we made it to Boise .
Had I known that Boise ,some 50 years later , would be grid-locked , I'd have shot the mule in Emmett , and sat down .

nativeidahoan) my family has been in Idaho since the 1880's
in Boise since the turn of the century (last century) 1903
to be exact.I don't mean to sound prejudice but it would be nice to see all these left leaning,hug a tree,tofu eating,gun hating,California transplanted yuppies go back to where
they came from.God bless George Bush!!!

Re: Migration

I'm a native Oregonian (Portland) and moved here 3 years ago with my ex before he became an ex. This area reminds me of Portland 20 - 30 years ago. When Boise gets to big I'm movin' north to Sandpoint (hopefully). But now it still has a small town feel.

Re: Migration

I'm a native Idahoan too. My father was born in Orofino in 1912. I wish these naive, ignorant Idahoans would quit ruining my reputation and add a little brain power to their choice of politics. I'd like to think that we here think for ourselves and question authority when needed. Oh yea, I own a gun, an suv, love trees, and hate tofu. You know what happens when you assume don't ya?

Re: Migration

Moved away a few years ago. Standard of living in Idaho seems to be low for the educated, working class, and I was no exception. Right to work states usually are that way. My wife and I make a comfortable living now, and are able to travel a lot more.
I do miss some of my friends and the variety of things to do in the Boise area......
