Re: “Defending North Idaho

"North Idaho gets a bad rap. It's nationally known as a region packed with white supremacists, radical bunker dwellers and unhinged conspiracy theorists." I lived in Northern Idaho for over a decade and only met a few of those people...though if you didn't bring up the topic, you would never know. I live in Texas now, whenever I mention Idaho all anyone talks about is potatoes or hippies. (Well first they think corn, for some reason people outside of Idaho think it is Iowa.) I have never once had anyone question me about the what you speak of. The so-called "hateful" past of Idaho would all but die from memory if you stupid Liberal fear-mongers would just drop it.

The most hateful people I knew while living there were the liberal whites. If you didn't follow their ways, your name was quickly passed around...kinda like this writer does.

If you want to talk racism...lets talk about the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force that makes sure that everyone but whites have rights. Or the progressive hate crime laws that prevent whites from protecting themselves.

We all know the the old black child molester, that can't even get a parking ticket because it would be racist...even though he always had some underage white boy with him. Anytime someone mentions him you are quickly cut off by some liberal within earshot and reminded that he was a blues musician, we are lucky to have him there and that there is nothing wrong with his lifestyle. Oh...and we're racist.

Who remembers the busing in of Inner City blacks to Bonner County that they did years ago? When they brought in thugs from California and told them they were protected. All they did was stand around verbally attacking white people trying to start fights and follow the white women around. If we tried to defend ourselves we were racist and risked being arrested, the white women were racist for not sleeping with them. They didn't want to work (not like there was much in the way of employment anyways) or get peppered for winter and we were racist because we wouldn't get their firewood, house them or GIVE them winter clothes. We stayed peaceful while they tried to get violent...yet we were still the racist ones.

Re: “The Ties That Bind

Hey, Spokane 2015. This is Spokane 2016.

Your STA ballot measure will fail. The liberals will not accept defeat and will place nearly the same exact issue on the ballot in 2016,

Not before some of the money from the 2015 campaign is paid out to Ben Stuckart, Karen Stratton and Lori Kinear. for their 2015 campaigns, however.

The STA plan is an unnecessary expense of $200,000,000+ and the folks supporting it are either crooks or fools.

BTW: TRUMP and Hillary are the POTUS candidates.

TRUMP wins;

Hillary is investigated, convicted and goes to jail.....

The liberal media is shamed for their support of Hillary and several media leaders are forced to resign.

Re: “Guilty Climate Pleasure

Mrs. Mariah Dawson is an apparent victim of too much indoctrination in liberal dogma and not enough education in science.

It's sad how many useful idiots there are who believe the earth is increasing in temperature due to human activity and ignore the hard facts that ALL planets in our solar system have seen an increase in average temperature.

What the Mariah Dawson types fail to realize is they are being played. Human activity is not causing the average temperatures on EARTH, MARS, VENUS, SATURN etc to increase. IT A FUNCTION OF THE SUN.

The Climate Change shakedown scam has been exposed for what it is; an attempt by unscrupulous political hacks. Remember Al Gore???? Thank GOD he wasn't elected in 2000!!!

It is nothing less that a plan to needlessly seize tax dollars from unsuspecting citizens.

It's an example of government of the people by being commandeered by evil people to control other people.

Very unAmerican. This is why the liberal types are taught to hate America.

Apparently Mariah has been a very gullible student.

Re: “Ground Down

Let's see.

Should we go for the legal beagle gal who will neglect the lands and never cut a tree; no matter how tinder dry it gets in our forest, or the guy who has been on the front lines fighting the fires caused by neglect of the liberal nutter elected to oversee Washington's Department of Natural Resources.

Since I could barely breath for over a month in 2015 thanks to the fires caused by awful forest management ala democrat Goldmark, I'm voting for the Republican McLaughlin.

Better to hire the party that puts out the fires versus the one the causes them.

Re: “Defending North Idaho

I must digress a little for my earlier post and the misspellings, please forgive me of them as my spell correct kicked off without me knowing it and I am guilty of not proofreading my work, so my apologies. I also later looked to find that this political hack now resides in Seattle, a place that surely welcomes him and everything he believes in. My question now is this, why are you even writing about our home? Is it a persoal vendetta, did someone call you on your bucket load of crap and hurt your feelings, did Heather Scott call you on your crap? Thus making you want to go to your safe space, in Seattle? Why have you even decided to write this if you don't even live here. You know, I, and many other's, would have at least respected you for living here and standing up for what you believe in. But now you aren't even going to get any respect for that fact. I wonder how much you were paid by the DNC to write this garbage. You are no journalist, but a paid blogger, that is all you will ever be as long as you write drivel like this. Please, don't go away mad, just go away.

Re: “Defending North Idaho

How about the time wwhen the VA tried to go and take the firearms from a citizen, because they arbitrarily, without any due process demed him mentally imcompetent and tried to confiscate his personal property from him? She was three in force with our County Sheriff and many townspeople and our regions Oathkeepers to ensure his due process. The VA canceled their appointment to come take his firearms. How about her support and "yes" vote on behalf of Idahoans to be able to carry concealed without a permit. These are things yor democratic buddy/pal would never do. It doesn't fit into her agenda to help destroy our Constitution from the inside out. How about you quit calling North Idahoans derogatory names and acting like a school child because they don't agree with what you believe in, and feel. You speak like the typical Californian who left there after helping to participate in destroying the place you lived. There is nothing wrong with escaping somewhere to go live in peace in another region of the country, coming here to assimilate and to contribute to the way of life in your new homw. Trying to make it just like the place you just left because it doesn't fit your narrative of the way you think things should be, doesnot endear you in any way to this community. In fact it makes the people of the community, wish you would go back to where you came from. You cannot possibly call this a well written news piece, but it is a total hack job with half cocked sniper pieces on a very well loved leaderbin our community. After this hack piece and the fabricated lies of the DNC plant that tried to lodge a bullshit complaint with the police and Bonner County Sheriff's office, you are quickly losing all credibility you moght have ever had. You really should go back where you came from if you don't like us "Deploerable," "Irredeemable" people your girl deems us as. I am sure they will welcome you with open arms and Unicorn Hugs all around.

Re: “Defending North Idaho

I agree with PRO GRESSIVE. Jeanetta Riley was murdered in less than 14 seconds flat. I knew her husband Shane Riley before they were married, and ran into him about 6 months after her death. He was DEVASTATED and I think the public was unaware of this, I didn't hear of it until he told me. Please publish an article about the police murder of Jeanetta Riley!!!

Re: “The Do-Over

@Way to go Spokane

Is that you Adam McDaniel the de facto manager of the YES FOR BUSES!

I believe Adam is the manager of the $140,000+ campaign to pass the awful STA $200,000,000+ measure on our Spokane ballots this November.....again (we voted this down in April 2015). Adam must be the manager, considering the $15,000+ he has charged the campaign so far for his "services".

I wonder how many dollars per word Adam charges for posting comments on the Inlander?

He certainly is not using the considerable campaign assets provided to him to fool the voters into passing the STA Measure.

One would think his working as an assistant for the infamous council president Ben Stuckart would be a conflict of interest.

Considering all the inane and downright nutters policy and acts out of the Stuckart cabal, (elephant hooks, bomb trains, bomb trains again, etc.) Adam must be doing nothing more than drawing a salary from the City of Spokane, so he can run ludicrous liberal campaigns into the ground; for cash.

@No WAY STA.....
Right on Bro!

Re: “Token Democracy

@Adam McDaniel

Is that Adam McDaniel form the STA YES FOR BUSES campaign?????

Don't you also draw a salary as a LA for wacko council prez, Ben "Bomb Train" Stuckart.

How's that STA YES FOR BUSES! campaign going? According to the WA Public Disclosure Commission, you have been paid a great deal of money ($15,000) so far, to run this failing campaign.

Seems like a conflict of interest huh?????

Are you going to donate excess funds from YES FOR BUSES to Stuckart like the April 28th, 2015 STA campaign did?

I'm looking forward to election night to see how many people voted down this latest reincarnation of the Central Line / Trolley $200,000,000+ boondoggle.

It's an unnecessary expenditure of $200,000,000+ and a huge expansion of government.

No way STA.

Have a good day Adam.

Say "high?" to Ben!

Re: “Annexation or death

There's a reason businesses such as Costco are moving outside of the city. Perhaps the city should consider making itself more business friendly instead of trying to chase after the companies that leave for a less business unfriendly environment.

Re: “Token Democracy

I was shocked at all the labor unions and groups who are not associated with Spokane that donated to Billing.

My goodness, who does he represent; his district or special interest???????

Apparently, it's special interest.

Billing needs to find work in the private sector. He is bought and paid for by special interest.

Gretchen, my I suggest to you and every voter in WA a simple solution when voting this November.
Vote NO or reject all Initiatives, Measures and proposals.

Do not vote for any incumbent Supreme Court Justice.

Do not vote for any democrat.

I am concerned about 1491 as it does not offer enough protections of the civil rights of the person who is the subject of the extreme risk protection order. 1. The petitioner who seeks the order has plenty of time to prepare for the court date. However, the respondent (often someone with mental illness) is only required to get 5 business days notice of the impending hearing. How does a person suddenly find qualified representation in 5 days? 2. It would be costly for the respondent to fight this. I see no provision in the initiative to provide legal fees to the respondent who may be indigent. 3. If the protection order is granted, the subject has to wait an entire year before s/he can again seek to have his gun rights restored. 4. There is no requirement for evaluation, treatment, or monitoring of the subject and does nothing to address the underlying issues. If the person is truly dangerous, this initiative is just putting a bandage on the problem and delaying the tragedy.

More info: “The ACLU of Washington has not taken a position on Initiative 1491.  We do not support the initiative because of the due process and other concerns outlined below.  While keeping guns out of the hands of people who pose serious risks to safety is a reasonable public safety measure, the ACLU’s role is to evaluate such measures by their impact on civil liberties, and we have concerns that the initiative has inadequate due process procedures.  Further, these deficient due process procedures could set a bad precedent for other criminal justice processes..."

Totally agree!! We need Kate McAlister representing us. Enough of this divisive attitude from Scott being reflected on our community of good-hearted people. Kate is honest with solid integrity and she'll work hard, as she's shown she can, for us normal, peaceful folks.

Re: “How movies and TV shows boost a conspiracy-minded "rigged!" mentality

DEMOCRATS are such pompous hypocrites. It is sooooooooooo funny to watch their self righteous concerns and condemnations of Trump, while forgetting about Al Gore in 2000 who refused to accept the outcome.

Democrats are still whining about the 2000 POTUS election; despite several credible studies stating BUSH won.
Besides, the DEMOCRATS have already proven they are more than willing to gerrymander 2016 races; ask Bernie Sanders.

Remember Gregoire circa 2004? How about Al Franken circa 2008?

TRUMP is correct to hold his opinion about the election, before the election.

DEMOCRATS, especially this current batch of them, have proven they are not to be trusted.

Re: “Shea's World

"Former Spokane Valley Mayor Diana Wilhite, who ran unsuccessfully for a seat as a Spokane Valley representative, says she aligns with many of Shea's votes as a lawmaker. But she says Shea is one person in Olympia, and a totally different person at home. "It's like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," she says, referencing the 1886 novel by Robert Louis Stevenson.

"He goes to the Legislature and he's one person," Wilhite says. "And he comes home, and he's a totally different person.""

First off, Wilhite ran AGAINST Shea for an open seat in the WA legislature. She came in a very distant third. and is apparently still bitter. Almost as bitter as lame duck county commissioner Nancy McLaughlin; who is a good friend of Wilhite. My guess is they regularly meet for tea and complain about Matt Shea to naive Inlander reporters while eating scones at the Rockwood Bakery on Argonne.

Secondly, Nancy lost because she didn't get out and campaign effectively. She thought since she was Nancy McLaughlin after all, people would wait in line to voter FOR her.

She was half right.

Now she is pointing her finger at others to explain why she decisively lost; not realizing she has three fingers pointing back at herself.

Nancy refused to endorse fellow Republican Josh Kerns who got past the 2016 primary. Not a very Christian thingy to do.....

Now she blames Matt Shea......

Very petty Nancy.

Maybe this is why you didn't win....God knew better.
