Re: “Defending North Idaho

You should maybe write about the murder of Jeanetta Riley in downtown Sandpoint who was Native American and pregnant at the time she was cut down in cold blood by two officers still on duty.... John T. Reuter.

Re: “Accidents All Over

Why has Hillary super delegate and TPP apologist Senator Murray still failed to endorced Joe? She sure seems perfectly at ease featuring local tribal members in well scripted ads. Did State Dem leader Jaxon Ravens initiate some sort of police tape, "Do Not Cross" order to punish Joe for daring to introduce Bernie at rallies attended by thousands of young people as Bill Clinton struggled to fill a captive audience gym? This is why I'm done with the corruption of incumbant Dems, and the DNC as a party. There is no diversity, just retaliation and favoritism.

Re: “Accidents All Over

Well said Sir. This year, I have reconsidered my local vote. As a mom, a taxpayer (yes, I pay my taxes) and a veteran with 20 years of active duty service, I have a unique perspective of having been a woman in the armed forces. I worked mostly with men but also women. Early in my service, there were times when sexist comments were made, on both sides, but never in that time did I hear the level of sexist, racist, unprofessional language that comes from Donald Trump. During my time in the service, respect for fellow service members and workplace professionalism improved from the education and training on such subjects as the sexual harassment prevention, diversity awareness, financial management and professional leadership. We continually progressed with the times to become a better, more professional, work force to carry out a mission. Legal standards were put in place to protect individuals and ensure efficiency of the mission. Infractions of these were dealt with swiftly and professionally. Our leadership depended on us to do our job without internal conflict, and it worked. The military and civil service civilians in the DoD is the most diverse work place on the planet. Coincidentally, it is the most diverse workplace in Spokane County. I speak from personal experience when I say that the diversity makes it stronger. Therefore, I am just baffled, baffled, that remaining Republican leaders still plan to vote for Trump. He is the opposite of an example for a Commander-in-Chief. His racist, sexists remarks and ideology have no place in the DoD chain of command. How would military training in the above areas go? Here’s your training; here’s your boss; this is what NOT to do? It makes no sense to me. ALL service members need to know that we, taxpayers, “have their back” whether it’s a marine from Iowa, a female airman in a gunner seat or a US solider born in Puerto Rico. For service members stationed in Spokane County, our home is their home. True ambassadors support all troops. I plan to “have their back” by NOT voting for Trump and will never again vote for local Republican leaders who plan on voting for him.

Re: “Accidents All Over

Will Rogers--a name Mr. Herold will recognize--once said that "Papers say: 'Congress is deadlocked and can't act.' I think that is the greatest blessing that could befall this country." He also said "[b]e thankful we're not getting all the government we're paying for."

The last thing we need is some overly confident imbecile who thinks he can cure the nation's ills, and that the remedy is more government and higher taxes.

Re: “How's That For Respect?

Hillary Clinton is the most corrupt person EVER to run for President of the USA from a major party;

She is a proven liar and serial quid pro quo / pay for play political insider. Why would he Inlander trust this person's campaign rhetoric??????

The Clintons and the democrats are the dirtiest campaigners in US history; ask Herman Cain....they did a " harassed women " number on him in 2012.

The Clintons and the democrats traffic in unfounded accusations and send out political black opps people to opponents campaigns to cause fights and problems.

Let's see if the Inlander will do an article on the aforementioned breaking news.....or are they just another liberal media shill for the Clintons.....

Re: “Money for President

I'm sure muddydog thinks we should all celebrate Columbus day as well. The idea that the USA makes "Life possible" is insane. The idea we are "better than any other nation in history" is a very biased opinion. Many people in Europe and Canada and Australia would disagree. We have no way of knowing what life would be like here if the white settlers had not invaded and taken the land from those who lived here before. I doubt from what I know of the history of most of the Native Americans that they would have developed a capitalist system though. While many of us have "Dead white guys" in our family tree, many others have ancestors who were killed by those same dead white guys as they conquered this land and created what would one day become the USA. I think muddydog needs to go visit a 3rd grade class. I'm pretty sure that is when kids learn the meaning of "Fact" and "opinion".

Re: “Pants on Fire

Climate change eh? Had the best crop of Apples this year than any other year since 2000. Had maybe something to do with management and water, rather than climate in China. But, let us gather up all those tax dollars and see if spending them in South and Central America and Africa doesn't stop our forests from burning. Temps up, Climate Change. Temps down, Climate Change. Strong winds, no winds, Climate Change it is nice to have Science that shows weather happens in cycles as it always has for the last several thousands of years. I am waiting for the CO2 levels to actually be correct with the predictions and to have an affect claimed to already be visible to people like yourself. If this keeps up, just think of all the Universities who can study Climate Change, while posting Zero results expected versus the rising CO2 levels. In the meantime, lets hook up thousands of windmills to nothing, and of course all those sun toaster receivers that are in the vast open spaces supplying power to no one. If you are going to blame her, perhaps your Carbon Footprint should be diminished via silence with subjects such as this. Weather in China had nothing to do with that. Get over it.

Re: “Pants on Fire

"The avoidance of science is nothing new," for Paul Dillon.

Hey Paul, Carbon dioxide is heavier than Oxygen and Nitrogen. In the atmosphere, carbon dioxide (CO2) goes to ground. It's pretty pronounced.

Want more?????

Carbon dioxide is readily absorbed by plants. Where do you think plants get their carbon from to make cells and cellulose? Why do you think there is a tree line and veggie line on mountains?

Want more?????

Weather computer models beyond a couple of weeks into the future are not reliable. Ask anyone who is in the business. The cumulative error is so pronounced, the farther into the future it predicts, the results become nothing Avon books fiction.

Shysters like Al Gore have made millions and a political career off of selling such fiction as fact. As time goes on, they are disproved and forgotten quickly by the global warming crowd. They laugh all the way to the bank.

Al Gore today is nothing but a multimillionaire and the butt of jokes.....Remember the time he got on Late Night with Conan and talked about "the core of the earth is millions of degrees" in temperature?

Sooooo funny.....

Sadly, he gets naive stupid people all up in a huff not unlike lobotomized lambs to slaughterer. Some in turn attempt to use their bogus understanding of Al Gore's lies and other weather related poppycock for their own political you have done in this laughable tripe, Paul.

Shame on you for being so obvious, ignorant and shallow.

Re: “To Kill the Black Snake

Protecting the Earth is not a popular idea, and for most it is a non issue. Trees and plants are for decoration, not a living life force. Water seems free and abundant. The earth, dirt is everywhere. Life is not explained as a circle, and their is not much awareness, of mans organic being. Their is little understanding, of how important, nature is to our daily survival, and life. Through modern evolution of machines, and oil producing products cultures have become dependent on those products. Natural producing crops like hemp have become outlawed. Hemp being in direct competition with oil from the earth. A tree may take at the very least 30 years to grow and harvest, were hemp several months. Clothes, cups, and fuel can be made from hemp, just to name a few. If you destroy the trees, the air, the water, it effects the life producing cycle for all of us, they call it pollution, and that leads to sickness and death. Time to make a choice, time to change laws, and time to respect our mother, the Earth. And time to get smart, about what counts, and it isn't worshiping and being controlled by money.

Re: “'Locker Room Talk'

Hillary is by far the most corrupt person ever to run for POTUS from a major party.

Check out what was released in the leaked Wikileaks hacked emails....

She is nothing but a liar DEMOCRATS. She will sell you out, take your rights and freedoms.

Hillary is not what she says.

Wake up and dump the lying loser Clinton before it is too late.

Re: “Pants on Fire

What a ignorant article typical for Dillon who seems to throw reality out the window when it comes to a partisan attack article.

It's hot and dry in the summer which = FIRES.......always had always will and its not Global Warming or Cathy its more people doing dumb stuff and more infrastructure ( power lines etc ) that are causing more fires.

Somehow I'm not amazed he isn't complaining about Dimslee coming over and interfering with the fire fighting efforts to get on TV to blame Global Warming for knocking a tree into power lines starting the fire to make it look like he is doing something.....

Re: “Between the Tweets

Between Trump and the Liar Queen what a choice.

Just look at the Wikileaks emails that show the true corruption of Democracy and deep bigotry and racism of the modern Democrat Party and the Clinton Machine.

Between the two I'll vote for the guy who's only crime according to liberals is telling a beautiful women she is beautiful .

Re: “'Locker Room Talk'

#2 was the most entertaining 'debate' so far. Trump snorts were annoying however. Hillary's heath seems to have died as an issue.

Was it presidential?

In a word, NO.

But, I must admit, I was entertained.

The way Anderson Cooper and the gal from ABC kept showing their bias was also revealing..

If they would treat Hillary, they way they treated Trump, two things would have happened:

A) Hillary would be out of the race and indited.

B) They Cooper et al would be unemployed as commentators for the liberal media.

Regular folks watched it as well. The next day, thousands of these people in WA who have never voted before, registered.

This is happening all over the country.

These people are not typical voters.

They saw what I saw however; and they will vote accordingly.

One more debate next week will wrap up this unique election year.

Most people have made up their minds by now. The last debate is only going to energize them.

I doubt it will top #2 however.

Re: “Money for President

"if we're going to elect the biggest racist, misogynistic, unintelligent crybaby in the world"

"I have a much more jaded view of the Constitution than most people. I believe the Founding Fathers were vested in their own self-interest and in no way wanted this to be the land of the free, except if you were a land-owning white man."

You are a bitter, bile infused, misguided, ignorant, angry person, Tara.

The codswallop that you have spewed in this column proves it.

Fact: Tump is a billionaire who took his a few million dollars of inherited wealth, and turned it into billions over the course of his life. He employees thousands of people. Not an easy feat. Most everyone who tries it, fails; and several thousands have tried.

Fact: Trump is no saint.

Here is a news flash for ya, neither is Hillary or Obama; Actually, in a number of ways, they are much worse than Trump.

If the drive-by PROVEN biased, liberal media, hate machine were ever unleashed against Hil or Berry, they would be out of politics within a week and most likely indited.

Be honest, Hillary is either going to steal this election like she did with Bernie, or she is going to be wearing convict orange for the rest of her life; if she is ever honestly investigated.

Fact: Hillary exposed secure secrets of her nation for her own personal gain. Her actions cost people their lives.

Fact: Hillary sold herself and her office for personal gain.

You might hate your nation; the very one that makes your life possible; the same that has made life on this earth a hell of a great deal better than any other nation in history;

That is your choice. Those dead white guys you despise, fought bled and died so you can.

They also provided a government that allows you to voice your opinion, no matter how grossly misinformed.

BTW: Once the truth of what Obama actually did as POTUS eventually comes out as it enviably will, he will go down in history as the worst POTUS in US History, so far.

You feel you hate your nation, Tara; but tell me, just one in history that has given more to others?

Good luck with that.....

Re: “Pants on Fire

Whenever I even THINK someone might be talking about global warming.. I listen for the keyword "science", which by the way is the punch-line of the joke. That's when I feel like I could laugh until I puke. Excuse me, science ...the way I learned it, is an objective and mathematical-precision kind of thing. ....of which, Fraudulent intentional falsification of data - or even allowing the slightest possibility of external bias... is a HUGE BAD thing. So I have to say that if that kind of science is used to do the calculations for the next trip to space, I'd rather stay put here rather than risk falsified figures sending me into the core of the sun for example.

Re: “A Bad Week

The Clintons have ALWAYS run sleazy campaigns. Remember when the falsely accused George HW Bush of having an affair? Remember they started the rumor that Obama was NOT born in the US?

How about the one where they said he is really a Muslim?

Nothing new from the Clintons; just lies and deceit in order to gain power and crush any opposition.

Reminds me of the Communist dictators of the 20th century......
