Re: “It's About Decency

Here's the thing "spokoresident" it's NOT about stiffing your precious free speech. WE are not moderating your behavior for you. We are not controlling what you say and how you say it. We are asking YOU to control yourself. We are asking YOU to examine problematic behavior and prevent it from hurting anyone else. You might want to fully understand all views on the movement instead of just your own anti-social justice one. You may also want to research what the actual goals of social justice are barbecue it's not to condemn or blame, it's to FIX the condemnation and blame that is placed upon the incorrect receivers.

"black on black violence" you scream as if white people still don't contribute largely to black murders. Any credit that point might have had is reallyjsut destroyed by the fact that all you're saying is "ALLA lives matter" in response to Black lives matter. OF COURSE ALL LIVES MATTER but we are focusing on the police brutality that happens to not only black people but to almsot all people of color in the united states. Sorry that you feel excluded but right now we're not focusing on priveleged white people.

And see, that's where your entire argument is negated, the fact that you refuse to see and accept that you and other white people have privilege.

It's pretty obvious that both sides have an agenda, I assumed we were both conversing under that assumption, but I apologize since it seems you have a hard time letting go of your objectivity.
If you knew anything about politics you could see that conservative's policies are pretty blatantly classist, xenophobic, sexist, and

Are you honestly serious? You're actually going to sit there and scream "boo hoo! undocumented immigrants" as if they actually pose some form of a threat?

Here's the thing: police officers are there to SERVE and PROTECT. Michael Brown was an AMERICAN with RIGHTS (as you're so fond of) so even if he had committed a crime (as white people do literally every day in the same manner) do you really, in all honesty, think that SHOOTING TO KILL is an appropriate response to a teenager robbing a gas station? (hint: it's fucking not)

In this country black CHILDREN are shot for less than white criminals of higher calibers; then those same white people are treated with more respect and dignity in our judicial system and that is a FACT.

You just proved to me that you really have not bothered to learn anything about the left. Take Bernie Sanders for instance: he supports individual gun rights but advocates for harsher gun control laws and a more rigorous process for attaining a weapon (i.e. guns shouldn't be sold at wal-mart.)
The left HAS been pushing for stricter gun control laws and if you have selectivity removed yourself from absorbing that information than you are a straight up fool.

Instead of sticking to your white washed selective exposure to reality maybe you should gain some real world experience and look at the bigger picture instead? Just a thought.

Re: “Extraordinary Ordination

I do not understand why you would continue to call yourself something that you are it. This faith based group has taken what they believe are the essential parts of Catholicism " Cafeteria style Catholics". You pick and choose the parts of the Catholic religion that suit you and your members. I think it is commendable what your at trying to accomplish, I would understand it better if you did not call yourselves Catholic because truly you are not. I will pray for you

Re: “No One is Safe

Hello everyone. There is a new way of making cash, although it is illegal but also a smart and easy way of living big, My name natasha and i just want to share my experience with everyone. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking guy called lucia. she is really good at what she is doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for random money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions. Hoping and praying it was not a scam. One week later i received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $3000. This was unbelievable and the happiest day of my life. So far i have being able to withdraw up to $28000 without any stress of being caught. I don't know why i am posting this here, i just felt this might help those of us in need of financial stability. blank Atm has really change my life. If you want to contact them, Here is the email address [email protected] OR Call +2348104244364. And I believe they will also Change your Life.

Re: “Seattle high schools are starting later. Here's why Spokane schools aren't

I wish they would start later. I even switched districts to avoid the new start time of 8:30am. Unfortunately due to family turmoil we had to re-enroll in the district. Not looking forward to getting a kid with sleep issues up earlier than last year.

Re: “The Panderlympics

WOW - I picked up my first Inlander while awaiting a take-n-bake pizza - WOW. The talent, the insight, the forethought, the research and that obvious intuitive way that Mr Herold is able to distort fact into fiction is rivaled by only a few.

"Health Care" (aka known as "Obama Care before it began to crater) - apparently Mr Herold has a very limited circle of friends as everyone I know personally has been distraught with both the premiums AND the high deductibles. The only ones who praise the plans merits are those who have no or little premiums or deductibles. They had that before the plan as well - little change for them. "Affordable." "You can keep your doctor." "Your premiums will go down." Obama owns these words, but just as Mr Herold's words they mean little, as they're also based in hyperbole.

"The Middle East" I don't ever recall anyone stating that Iraq was peaceful. It was to use the words of POTUS "contained" - that is until our troops were withdrawn. So now a few years later, we're recommitting troops to get back what was purchased with so much blood. ISIS grows stronger by the day and saying that the policies of this administration (which includes the gifted Statesperson Ms Clinton) hasn't emboldened them is well, not true. Just because little George started the fire, doesn't mean that Barry and BroomHilda get a pass for throwing gas on the embers.

"Immigration" 3 lines, 3 lines is all that could be conjured up? I guess the attacks in Paris caused some of the little grey cells in the cranium to go this way and that negating any intelligent or meaningful prose. Well ask the employees of the Disney Parks just how they liked training their lower paid foreign replacements. Or even better, ask yourself if you could move into a different locale and get free housing, money and medical would you not do the same? Heck, even the people who were born here and work don't get all those benefits! Barry, that will be just one small part of a failed legacy.

"Climate change" Not that many years ago it was called "Global Warming" - when that didn't work out as planned a new moniker had to be created. Now, as it turns out facts are getting in the way of the fiction that used to be "facts". Earlier this year NOAA was caught with its wind socks around its ankles......again. It appears they're prone to fudge the numbers in order to keep their funding from drying up - WOW, am I ever surprised!

It's too bad there's no place to reply to this drivel other than a comment section online. To have a diolgue rather than a biased and less than truthful column might actually be something new for the readers of the Inlander.

Re: “The Panderlympics

I will repeat what I post every week Mr. Herold puts forth a column - this is the same old column he does each week. Come on Inlander, get someone interesting to write a column.

"Many of them are doing jobs in America that most Americans don't want to do."

They are doing jobs that Americans won't do at the wages that are being paid.

Re: “Fracking Idaho

Zel, here's a document you should check out-- it is a Compendium published by health care professionals in New York in response to the proposed fracking there. It was just updated last month. It is PACKED with peer-reviewed studies demonstrating the public health impacts, detrimental private property impacts, groundwater contamination, air pollution, etc.:

Re: “Extraordinary Ordination

Theologically speaking, she is a Protestant.

I can dress in a Red Mountie Costume and have a pronouncement made over me, but that does not make me a member of the RCMP.

I would seriously doubt that there are 10,000 members of this denomination nationally. It is free country and people can choose whatever religious orientation they want, but as a practicing Roman Catholic, I have to pray that these people be delivered from this delusion. The Devil works in clever ways to try to divide God's people.

Re: “Kids Over Tax Breaks

If the idea is to increase governmental spending, which usually entails higher taxes, this idea isn't novel. It's doctrinaire liberalism. How well does that work? The answer is Detroit. It would be radical and worthy of consideration to stop corporate welfare, reduce or cap governmental spending and build education by giving parents tuition vouchers, thereby allowing individuals the ability to choose. Competition will bring out the best.
