Re: “Making Room for Culture

Listen to these modern day leftists (they don't deserve the label liberal). The biggest bigots of today. Everything to them, including the force of one's argument is dependent on race and gender. Pathetic and completely missing the point. Sad.

Best way to prepare students for a diverse workplace? Focus efforts and funding on study abroad programs, they are a great opportunity to expose students to other cultures.

Re: “Making Room for Culture

I'm an alumnus of EWU, and I want to weigh in. Although I would much rather the inkspace be given to somebody who is a person of color and a student, and I despise the idea that students are "customers," I feel that Ms. McKay's underlying meaning rings true. Unfortunately overlooked is the fact that with globalization, our world is becoming increasingly smaller and to be able to work in multicultural and intercultural settings is not just preferable, but requisite for success. At this point, listen to the students who are asking, they know what is needed, they have vision that, perhaps, administration lacks, and ignore the Cascadia flag waving white bros with sophomoric arguments about algebra problems (substitute x and y with zero), and cynical old men, that have outed themselves in previous comments.

Re: “America's Largest Hate Group

Paul Dillon, take a good sober look at the company you keep before criticizing their rivals.

Black Lives Matter (BLM) are a vicious a hate group as any in recent memory. The BLM rhetoric inspired a touched simpleton in Houston to shoot a Houston Cop for no reason but the fact that he was indeed a sojourner police officer.

Do you recall the chant repeated by the BLM marchers before the cop was killed?

".....Pigs in a Blanket, Fry them like bacon....."

Do you recall the Ferguson, Missouri summer of riots thanks to a lie spread by democrats? How many business were looted? How many people were hurt; even killed all due to the lie the democrats keep retelling.

Despite a Grand Jury and verification by the Dept. of Justice, dullard and die-hard democrats can't acknowledge the truth that the young man, fresh from committing a crime, died while assaulting a police officer.

Yet the democrats like Paul Dilton say the Republicans are a "hate group" while swimming in a sea hypocrisy......

Re: “Turning to Turnout

Bob never seems to talk about the liar and cheat that is running for president under the Democrats banner. It's like a old Herold is covered in his own filth and sick drunkenly chants how others smell to the high heavens.

Take the miles of plank out thine own eye Bob Herold, then you may see clearly to take the tiny spec out of the eyes of others.

Re: “Spokane County becomes sixth U.S. county to ban e-cig use in public places

Since when did basic rights and freedom include blowing strange vapors in the faces of your fellow man? Show me incontrovertible data irrefutably proving that there is absolutely nothing harmful in that vapor and I'll eat my words. The law is precautionary for everyone's well being. Geez, Americans can be so whacky with their "its my right.. .Freedom....derrrrr" crap.

Re: “Making Room for Culture

Whether or not the money could be reallocated from that particular budget to academics doesn't matter. The point is, the PUB doesn't need a redesign just like Patterson building didn't need a redesign. It's a waste of resources that could be better spent elsewhere; budgets are amendable.

I dare anyone interested enough to go on Eastern's campus and present several randomly selected students with a simple linear function and ask them to find its horizontal and vertical intercepts. I'm pretty sure a good third of them will give you wrong answers and another third won't know what the hell you're talking about. I'm not even kidding. But we must fund more diversity.

At this point everyone sees clearly what "understanding and diversity" actually mean. Nobody is falling for this feel-good leftist bullshit anymore. It's identity politics through and through, designed to divide people up based on racial and gender differences. Mixed with a good dose of victim mentality and 'blame whitey' for everything that's bad in society. MEChA and their nationalist reconquista ideology should not even be allowed on campus. Even La Raza (an organization that's literally called "The Race") doesn't want to be associated with them.

Re: “Making Room for Culture

Has anyone ever told the under informed students at EWU as well as the Spokane Chapter of the NAACP (post Rachel Dolezal) as well as the liberal white self loathers, that the the riots , looting, violence murderers due to Ferguson, Mo, were based off a made up lie. This lie was exploited by the worse people of our nation, who strive to divide our nation for their own profit.

The facts are clear: A Ferguson juvenile delinquent, fresh from robbing a business, tried to take a police officer's gun while assaulting him and was shot and killed in the process of the crime. The police officer had no choice but to shoot and was justified in doing so..

The US Dept. of Justice agreed.

Is it naivete or just self inflicted ignorance when individuals and groups like Black Lives Matter reference Ferguson, Mo as a justification for their bad acts such as advocating for the murderer of police officers or the construction of buildings on public universities?

Repeating a lie does not make it true.....Ferguson like Rachel was a national embarrassment. We need to learn from the mistakes and move on, not ignore the truth, and build a building in the name of the aforementioned foolishness.....Let's not play into the hands of the worst of us.

Instead, let's seek to know the truth, and it will set us free for a better EWU community and nation.

Re: “Making Room for Culture

The money for building comes from a different state budget and cannot be spent on academics, so let's just get that out of the way so other people don't make inane comments. Why not promote understanding and diversity? It will be a good thing. I just don't understand people getting their knickers in a twist about tolerance and acceptance.

Congratulations Spokane, but am I the only one who finds it a bit disturbing that a company has all this data on a good portion of the populace?

"Smart" and "progressive" are mutually exclusive.

Re: “Tax and Spend

"While it failed in the county, the measure passed overwhelmingly within city limits. With the STA board cautious about asking voters a second time for a tax increase, the Spokane City Council has been looking for ways to fund the project themselves."

Yes, the voters voted it down in 2015; the groups who stand to greatly benefit the most (AKA Avista, SEIU, other unions, the electric trolley manufacture etc. dropped over $100K+ on the Pro-Trolley / STA vote on April 28th, 2015.

It ran unopposed.


Voters wisely don't want it. It's not needed and it is VERY EXPENSIVE.

Let the powerful, the local legacy wealthy, the labor unions, AVISTA, pay for it; and the 5 million+ yearly maintenance and upkeep cost in perpetuity.

Besides, the STA folks can't manage the resources they have already; only a fool would give them millions more to manage ....

Re: “The Council Whisperers

What, no mention of Richard Rush, aide to Candy Mumm?

One of only two people to NOT be reelected to second term on Spokane City Council....since the city went to districts in 2001.
C'mon Danial Walters, cover all the points of a piece, not just puffy ones.....very lame writing dude.

Do the above mentioned put in 40 hours a week? Call on any given Friday, see if you can reach any of them.....

It should be mentioned, the guys also have the a standing reputation, along with certain male council members, for foul language in the workplace. aka city hall....

Re: “The Price of Government

Karen 'MaryJane' Stranton, Breean Lawrence Beggs, Candy Mumm, Amber Waldref, don't put in 20 hours a week on average. Ask their staff---- no wait, they aren't there half the time either......

The aforementioned should punch a clock; they can't be trusted; most don't work full time for the city in the job they were elected to do.

They should be paid hourly.....

Re: “'Meat Suit'

Verner should have remained in the political graveyard; dead, buried and forgotten. .

She is a rotting political zombie who died by a self inflicted gunshot wound to the frontal lobe. She's gambling with the money of others as well as Indian casino money that voters won't remember how she selfishly asked for the $50K+ she donated from her Spokane mayors salary after she spectacularly lost reelection campaign.

Let her waste her time and the money of the fools who are dumb enough to support her bid for statewide office; or any public office for that matter......

It should be funny.

Re: “Spokane County becomes sixth U.S. county to ban e-cig use in public places

Seriously,another person with a degree of some kind with NO COMMON SENSE...has no idea obviously. There is over 4000 chemicals in cigarette smoke. There are 43 known cancer-causing chemicals in cigarettes. The problem is that the cigarette companies are losing money now that people have gotten smart and are starting to vape instead of smoking chemical poison toxins in cigarettes. Vape where and when and how I want I do live in the USA
