Re: “The Real Threats

@Muddydog... so the answer is "not having a standard and fair working environment and decent benefits for the marijuana worker" to keep the price of legalized pot low?? I think criminals and the cartels will always have a corner on the market for lower priced marijuana.. that is why it is called "the black market". Why do common individuals in this region always argue against their own self interests??

Re: “American Fabric

Every day in America, a black man kills a black man between 10 and 12 times and Obama does not care in the least. No one cares, especially this writer. Paul Dillon could care less when muslims kill American soldiers, he probably sits snickering with his lefty buddies about how servicemen deserve to die. Paul is dead silent when people of color murder cops and from his tone, he feels Mr. Beltran deserved to be murdered by two thugs, his sin? Whiteness.

"Slavery is in our DNA"? ARE YOU KIDDING? That is the single stupidest observation ever made.

With all of the problems in the world, what kind of idiot wants to revisit 300 years ago and accept blame for something he had utterly no part in? An idiot who voted for an idiot president who has accomplished nothing in SEVEN years except a $10,000,000,000,000.00 increase in the national debt. Anything to distract from actual issues and problems.

Do you know what is worse than someone owning a slave in 1850? 30% unemployment in the black community TODAY, the highest murder rate per capita in the nation TODAY and poverty at the highest rate in decades. You cannot fix a single thing, you do not want to even try.

But when it comes time to whine about a flag or whine about how people did it wrong in 1719,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,you are first in line.

Re: “Vaccine Haters

Vaccinate your kids!!! Vaccinations are not just for the individual, they help protect spreading illnesses to people who can't fend off things on their own. How many of you anti-vaccine mommas actually have years of research under your belt? Or is it hundreds of Google searches?
Just stay in your bubble at home if you don't want to vaccinate, why jeopardize the rest of us & our families?

Re: “The Real Threats

Unionized workers will be more expensive for producers, and their increased costs will be passed to customers through higher prices for the product. As the prices for legal marijuana rise, customers will resort to less expensive, illegal product. That means cartels and other criminals will stay in business. That's a loss for everyone except criminals.

Re: “Why Sen. Andy Billig voted against freezing the $2 billion class-size initiative

I agree that these discussions should have been held at the BEGINNING of the legal legislative session. We need to pass a law that the budget has to be completed prior to any other activity period. I know their excuse is that the budget forecast information isn't out until nearly the end of the session. Fix that! Either start forecast modeling earlier, or start the normal session later. Easy fix. Personally, I have a real hard time agreeing to pay these divisive yahoos extra to do the job we sent them to do. How many other jobs are there where you get paid extra for not doing your work? By the way, the legislators who voted to suspend the will of the voters will certainly find themselves suspended in the next election.

Re: “After Charleston

Great essay. It's unfortunate so many turn a blind eye to the everyday racism that still occurs in this country. That's on us. And no it doesn't absolve you to say, "yeah, but blacks get all this special treatment and are obsessed with race." They deserve a lot more than that after being let down and pushed down time and again by generation after generation. Roof was no lone wolf - more like the tip of the spear.

Re: “Why Sen. Andy Billig voted against freezing the $2 billion class-size initiative

What kind of fantasy world is Andy Billig living in? He calls it a "manufactured" crisis? I would say getting a budget passed 20 minutes before the state shut down operations is a rather legitimate crisis.
How did he not know this was coming? Somehow the House democrats knew and voted in favor. Why were these discussions not had in February and March, when they should have been working on the budget.

Re: “After Charleston

I completely agree with the observation in this article that the victims' family members demonstrated incredible love and forgiveness. I wonder if it has occurred to the author and the left that both the victims, who were killed during a Wednesday night prayer meeting, and the victims' families were informed by and acting upon their Christian faith. How fairly have Christians been treated by the left, including columnists for the Inlander? Could it be that their animosity towards Christians is unfair and bigoted?

Re: “Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich vs. ISIS, white supremacists and the ACLU

Did Ozzie state how many law enforcement officers in the area have been attacked by "sovereign citizens", white supremacists, and ISIS members? I was under the impression that number is close to zero.

Re: “Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich vs. ISIS, white supremacists and the ACLU

Lael, the Republican Party did not sponsor the event. It was sponsored by a private club that calls themselves "The Republicans of Spokane County." Many people have made the same understandable mistake you did, in thinking that their name means they are the party. That club was started in late 2008 or early 2009 with the split between the Republican "old guard" and the "new" anti-war Ron Paul contingent. It's unfortunate that they are unwilling to take steps to clear up that confusion.

Source: I'm on the executive board of the Spokane County Republican Party.

I also wonder if I'm the "elected official" he was talking about that says that ISIS is not a threat to America. We did have that conversation, and I stand by my statement that they aren't. I do question my "status" as an elected official, though. I'm an elected Precinct Committee Officer, and was elected by my PCOs to represent them on the party's executive board, but that's about as far as it goes. Maybe he wasn't talking about me - if that's the case, I probably agree with said elected official.

Re: “After Charleston

First and foremost, no American has legally "enslaved" another person LEGALLY more than 150 years.

No American alive today was a slave owner or slave and if anyone actually met a slave it was probably before WWII.

The Civil Rights acts of 1964 and 1965 were harshly opposed by DEMOCRATS. Democrats formed the KKK in response to the recognition of former slaves as rightful American citizens. Republicans had to create a Constitutional amendment in order to force democrats to recognize their fellow Americans.

The "brutal reconstruction" that democrats like Robert Herold curse in this article included civil rights for black Americans, the right to vote, own property and travel freely. What he and most elite white socialists oppose is people, especially people of color stepping off the welfare plantation and daring to move into their socialist social circles.

This is a singular racist act by an idiot who happens to be white. If he was Muslim, Robert could have cared less. A Muslim terrorist killing dozens on Ft. Hood was simply "work place violence". A Muslim terrorist killing an Army recruiter in Arkansas was "work place violence". Muslim terrorist chopping off heads in the northeast, executing policemen in New York City or attacking a policeman with a hatchet,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,workplace violence.

This horrible criminal act has nothing to do with the Civil War, the Confederate flag, "white entitlement", capitalism or any other distraction espoused by socialists. It is a racist act, from a deranged person who was being protected by the far left and their incessant demands that the rights of the mentally ill be respected at the expense of all others.

In all 50 states, no mentally ill people are willingly reported to the NICS system and denied the right to purchase or possess a firearm. Same goes for druggies and drunks, it is illegal to sell a firearm to a habitual drug user. Read a form 4473 sometime.

As with all terrible crimes, socialism tried to push their socialist agenda at the expense of the dead. Socialism seeks to deny the innocent of their right to own a firearm or defend themselves from the criminal. In the end, they will defend the criminals rights at the expense of the victim. Thanks socialism, for missing the point yet again.

Re: “Healing Forward

So much anger or downright hate, all caused by a self-serving, attention hungry woman. She was a liar and a good one, obviously. Is she doubting herself or her actions, no because people like her are always the victim, ready to excuse themselves of any of their poor choices. Instead we in Spokane doubt ourselves. "Are we fools? Are we gullible? Are we too nice?" The answer is no. Several local institutions (including the Inlander) dropped the ball on researching their employees and volunteers and I'm sure they have learned their lesson. But she was a conwoman plain and simple and like all con artists she was charismatic, minipulative and easy to believe. The shame here is all hers, not this community's. A little too nice is certainly not the worst thing that could be said about a any town.

Jack: The Republican party sponsored the event and secured the venue and the badges I referred to were name tag type pins that read "Republican". I'm sure there were members of other parties in attendance, but it was a primarily republican crowd.
