Re: “Photos and stories from the front lines of the Dakota pipeline protests

I'm offended by the appropriation of White European dress , horse, tents , cars , buses.... ! Should have walked to ND like your ancestors would have had too while avoiding getting killed or taken as slave by other tribes ......

Re: “I Saw You

Wow. Someone is feisty about the LGBT community. Not all of them are that way, but in your defense, it IS that way here. I moved here from NC 2 years ago. There, the LGBT community was appreciative of their allies; had time for them and let them know how important allies were to them. Here, it is almost the total opposite! Someone suggested I join Inland Northwest Business Alliance due to my strong allied stance. I had PLANNED to become a Platinum member. But 2 phone calls and 2 emails to them and no response! Obviously, their allies are not as important as they say. So yes, there are many here who are selfish and all that. On the other hand, I must come to the defense of TWO LGBT people here who are loving, kind, compassionate and ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS have time for their allies and SHOW AND TELL them how important they are. Rochelle, who sometimes writes here, it's her son and son-in-law. Even if they are working 100+ hours a week at their business, they STILL make an effort. So there are both in this city: the selfish ones and the selfless ones. Just seems to be unbalanced here. More selfishness and less selflessness. That's all.

Re: “Rematch

I did some fact checking on cmr's support "for legislation that would give tribes more control over their land." I even called her WDC office and spoke with Steven. People, there is no such legislation -- either introduced or proposed. She is just like Trump -- fact-free and ethically ambivalent. If you want to know who she works for, Google her donor list. About 13% of her donations comes from the people who she is elected to represent.

Re: “Wrap it Up

I wish the north Spokane location cocked there tortillas. First time and last time I ate there my wife and I ordered the street tacos and the tortillas were not cooked. How are you going to advertise "street tacos" and not cook the tortillas?

Re: “Condon settles ethics complaint, suicide calls to Spokane police and other news

They should have built a baseball stadium for everyone instead of condos for a few along the river

Re: “Condon strikes deal, avoiding ethics commission hearing over alleged dishonesty

The City already requires mandatory yearly sexual harrassment training and they STILL have City leaders sexually harrassmening employees. I have little faith that this new development will change anything. Condon just avoided a lawsuit.

Re: “Urgency of Change

Andrew Biviano is quite possibly the worse choice for County Commissioner since Mark Richards.

Shelly is nothing to write home about, but she is much better than Andy.

Biviano would be yet another attempt to put the wackiness of the Spokane city council liberal mindset at the county level.....

Shelly will at least not support very expensive moron ideas like the the STA 200 million dollar Central City line....

Re: “Class Act

Good lord. This is incoherent. Are you suggesting rich people should just live adjacent to poor people? For what reason? Do you, Mariah, live amongst hobos? Are you willing to sacrifice all of your wealth (maybe at least the cost of your next jaunt to New England) so that you might understand the crackhead better? Maybe everybody should just have equal everything. Sounds plausable. Hey, at least broad oversimplification is constructive (sarcasm). Btw, I feel no shame in filing a code complaint about MY neighbor because he had stacked "junk" (piles of putrid mattresses) in his yard. It's not necessarily a class thing. It's a rats-and-plague-and-mold-and-disease thing. At least the code department of Spokane agrees with my opinion.

Re: “Class Act

People living in poverty do in fact think of themselves as living in poverty, sometimes that's the only think they can think about. This is not mutually exclusive from their feeling "down on their luck."

Re: “Class Act

Must be nice to be from rich family and go on luxuries New England family vacations. I'm sure Tara could have found a B&B in a Boston ghetto. Another naive " rich guilt " article for sure

Re: “Think Global, Tax Local

If it passes it won't survive a court challenge.

Best to let some other state be the guinea pig for something like this and see if the Carbon Con Men are right.

Re: “Trump vs. Jesus

Great article! As a Christian I gave up on the Republicans when they did nothing about Roe vs.
Wade when they had the presidency, the supreme court and the congress under Bush 2. I really admire Max Lacado for saving what he did about Trump.

Re: “CONCERT REVIEW: Bonnie Raitt gives Spokane something to talk about

Unfortunately Allen Stone was directly 2 rows behind me and clapped so loud as to block out the band..He does have good meter, but ruined many songs for all those around him...I thought he was retarded or something.

Re: “WA Supreme Court overrules judge's order for homeless woman to pay $15 monthly fines

Who was the judge. Benton County actually has a record of this. The cost of living is so high in that town I had to move to Spokane just to survive. You can't survive on 750.00 per month in the tri cities. I could hardly survive there even when I was working for Amazon.

Re: “I Saw You

Re: Disrespect on 9/11

Some, including me, choose not to give Al-Qaeda the satisfaction of participating in any rituals to commemorate their despicable act of cowardice and murder on 9/11. We mourn the victims in our own way, perhaps on Memorial Day or other times of our choosing, without waving flags at half-staff, which is our First Amendment right. Perhaps if there were less nationalistic flag-waving we would not be supplying billions of dollars in arms to an apartheid nation or still be engaged in an endless war against a word, terrorism, that has killed a hundred times more innocent lives than were lost on 9/11.

I enjoyed this article. I thought it was an important message that we all need to hear.
