Re: “[UPDATED] Frank Straub files a $4 million claim against the city for due process violation

Condon hired him against the recommendation of basically everyone. So this is entirely his fault. Oh of course Straub is responsible for his own actions. But considering this is nothing new for him and he was hired in spite of his track record, I'd bet he has a good case. So Condon ought to personally hand over the $4 million bucks.

And I'm sure we'll learn a lot more from further investigation. And from Brian Breen of course, in spite of the fact that the only daily press in Spokane has shut him out. But of course we also know the owners of the press also own half of Spokane, and buy the mayor and anything in city hall also, all the while taking pennies from those in poverty. River Park Square anyone? And who do you think is behind attempting to move the bus station downtown? I used to give them the benefit of the doubt too. Oh, and I even voted for Condon. Not again on either.

Re: “Swap Holidays

Quit trying to ruin a day that is special to Italian-Americans and a celebration of their heritage. Indigenous Peoples' Day is the day after Thanksgiving.

Re: “A Speaker's Calling

I quit voting republican in 1992, the year Washington nominated Pat Robertson for president - I believe in separation of church and state. Now 30+ years later, my fears were justified. The GOP is splintering like the Whig Party 200 years ago.
America cannot be ruled by exclusion nor by extortion of the lower class for health care, honest representation in both elected houses. None which I've seen expounded by any Republican / T.P.
Thanks to the Republicans, T.P for showing all Americans the hatred. witch hunting and duplicitous oaths to most Americans.
Sorry George, for your predicament, But, you threw your anchor on a sinking ship.

Re: “Undermining Our Mayors

Excellent analysis. But who are the unnamed Police Guild leaders, and how do they respond to the issues you've raised? Shine a little light on them. Send out a reporter or two to ask them some probing questions and publish the responses. The Inlander is a big part of the media (certainly the print media) in this community, so it has a big responsibility to the community. The community is not being served by what you've described, and it's not being served if the Inlander does nothing.

Re: “Media firestorm swirls around Rachel Dolezal, the local NAACP president

I don't see why people are mad at her for wanting to be black or whatever but people seem to not have a problem with boys transforming to girls and girls transforming to boys. Who cares apparently she was qualified for the job

Re: “Swap Holidays

How is this not a microaggression against Italians and Italian Americans?

And let's be honest about Native American Cultures. Even before the arrival of Europeans, they warred between themselves, took captives who were enslaved, and forcibly "adopted" women from other tribes who were "married" to captors. Some captives who weren't adopted into the tribe faced death by torture that was made to last days. Does that excuse mistreatment of Native Americans by Americans? Of course not. But overlooking the totality of Native American cultures and history is both inaccurate and, after a fashion, condescending.

Re: “I-1366: Just Say 'No!'

Interesting how all the opposing letters won't even address Eyman's shady ethics and instead are deflections using the same boilerplate, hyperbolic anti-PP rants or the threadbare, broad-brush "teachers suck, government sucks, socialists are everywhere", rants. Eyman asking us to utilize a meat-ax approach to government, education and social service funding reeks of irony when he treats his own personal ethics with such swaggering arrogance.

Sorry "whocares", care to provide any legitimate sources on your statements? About the quality of education since the 70's, or even the "dismembering of baby parts"? Everything in your post was, put politely, pulled out of O'reillys asshole.

Re: “Swap Holidays

Oh God, here we go again with this garbage. Here is a mystery. Why can't "indigenous peoples" make their own holiday?

Why blame Christopher Columbus for something Pope approved? Why not ban Christmas instead? If you blame Chris for the bad things that the following 15 generations of people did, then you should also give him credit for their accomplishments.

In reality, Christopher Columbus brought you the computer, , the internet, newspapers, TV, video games, cars, trains, wagons, the wheel, horses, plows, cattle ranching, kerosene lights, wood stoves, iron tools, steel, everything electric ever used, paved roads, cancer treatments, a cure for polio, bridges, sky scrapers, the Panama Canal, airplanes, space travel, you name it, if it was invented in the western hemisphere, it was all Chris Columbus who made it happen.

Before you start worrying about the "estimated" deaths caused in the western world by European settlement, think about the hundreds of millions of people killed in the last 150 years by communism and socialism. Yet Seattle has "Mayday" parades and riots every year to celebrate the worst mass murderers of the 20th century and the Inlander gladly supports that "holiday".

It is okay to skip this holiday if you hate Columbus. I skip Mayday because I respect the millions killed by Karl Marx.

Re: “Worked Up

Seattle was far more "prosperous" than Seattle long before communists started moaning for $15-$24 per hour minimum wages for dope smokers. Communism has rewarded no working man or woman with economic prosperity in it's history. The idea that somehow people can improve their lives if they are paid at a flat rate and denied the right to own homes, property, accumulate wealth, inherit wealth from their families or own their own businesses is utterly laughable.

The real mystery is why people buy into this ideology.

Seattle has a major deep water port, Spokane does not. Seattle has major manufacturing and skilled industrial work, Spokane has call centers for bill collectors, pot shops and Wal-Marts.

The best way to insure the economic death of Spokane is to drive every major corporation from the city limits with bizarre wage and benefit laws that make hiring and firing employees all but impossible.

Re: “Simple by the Slice

WTH does he mean that pizza is "kinda missing" in Liberty Lake? Is he unaware that River City Pizza is right on the other side of the river from him? That's some of the best pizza in Spokane, hands down, and is way better priced than this "authentic Italian" shill that he's trying to peddle. I've eaten pizza all over Italy, and there isn't a slice of it that can compare to real American style pie.

Re: “KHQ doesn't understand what "Common Core" math is

A trite, lazy piece. If the point of the article is to be condescending, nailed it. Also, if Dan Walters wants to school readers on contractions (clearly he's an expert as I've never seen so many contractions used in a "professional" piece), he might want to read his article out loud before publishing to avoid unintended errors. Hint: there's a big difference between "that" and "than."

Re: “Meet your barista: Promise Boutelle at CaffĂ© Affogato

I love it when you enter a coffee shop and the baristas welcome you with very friendly attitudes and smiles in comparison to when you enter and have to help yourself in almost everything. This is one of the things I look for in a good cafe or coffee shop.

Re: “Rideshare Rumble

It's cool to see these companies expand into Eastern Washington, this is really a testimony to how large ridesharing has become nationally. There is controversy in literally every market that Uber and Lyft enter, but these companies have gotten so large that they are nearly unstoppable. I have created quite a few resources to cover news and tools for Lyft and Uber drivers, check them out at

Re: “Worked Up

Lots of people losing jobs will be the result. Remember nobody is responsible for your work payment but you. Even the unions are failing because of demands for raises. Seattle has a bustling economy. Spokane doesn't.....and likely won't with this short sighted thinking. If you don't make enough money such that you hve to go get a 2nd job, you might be thinking of getting a different first job. Nobody has a right to other people's money. Nobody.
Another failure coming up..either through the voters or from the courts.

Re: “Trouble at Ft. Hood

Where is this going to STOP? Ok, PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury AREN"T necessarily the CORE issues here. I know that sounds strange, and I don't mean to be disrespectful. My disabled spouse husband, a brother-in-law, me and most possibly one of our nephews (he just got diagnosed with Gulf War Syndrome and TBI can be a symptom of that)
ALL have PTSD/TBI , and although it never goes away, and there is no cure, there ARE different therapies and other tools you can employ (my husband is missing a large part of his frontal lobe) , for example utilizing a service dog,
that help you live beyond the damage into a more functional life. Tragically, the symptoms, to a greater or lesser degree always remain. BUT what happened here with this former Maj Hasan has just ripped out the "stitches" on the mental wounds these guys had plus cutting deeper even more. It's beyond horrendous, and as bad as a full blown military assault on that base, as causalities have fallen. I need to stop now, because I'm angry and am becoming very bitter about all of this. I do not want to sound like a bigot , but foreign nationals whose counties we are currently fighting , I feel, should not allow to join our armed forces , especially not officer rank or positions as sensitive as what Hasan did. God bless those troops on that base, the wounded, killed and their families. God bless America....
