Re: “Almost Ready to Call It

Senator Warren just might jump in, treating us to a cage match between two shrill, pasty frauds. What fun!

Re: “Almost Ready to Call It

Although I've been pretty good at predicting Presidential outcomes in past elections, I wouldn't be as sure about this one as Ted McGregor is. There's just too many extenuating factors and potential for some serious mind-changing by the electorate. If she is elected.....I'm afraid it's not going to be a good time for America.

Re: “Letters to the Editor

I love how Craig Howard refers to the ridiculous research done by NIDA when anyone with a half a brain, access to the internet, and a desire for truth can easily find ACTUAL studies done on marijuana that completely contradict the NIDA studies that are only done to keep tobacco sales high and put money in DEA pockets. The "war on drugs" is a sham, people.

Re: “Letters to the Editor

Washington and the flag did not respect the Indians.They are the only true people, that paid the ultimate sacrifice for your so called freedom. We should all be ashamed when we use words like the American flag, bravery, courage and freedom in relation to anything having to do with this stolen land!

I thought the cover was quite clever and punny.

Re: “Letters to the Editor

I cannot believe the negativity you are receiving and even more so the ignorance of people about this issue. I thank you for trying to keep the city informed, even on subject matters of an "alternative" status. As for some, maybe we are not the oblivious ones to the world around us. Open your mind to change and progress. Open your eyes to that which you choose to ignore and shut down without further inquiry.

Re: “Letters to the Editor

I read an interesting article about USA 'patriotism' and the importance we place on the flag and national anthem. Most other countries do not regard their flag or anthem with such awe and respect. The article indicated that we do it here because when we were formed we all had come from somewhere else so we needed to create a national identity and patriotism for the new country. That's why the flag, and later the anthem were so revered - so we felt some loyalty and patriotism for this new country. Other countries have longer histories and do not need the symbols as much I guess. In the end a flag is a piece of cloth, it's not who we are and it's not the embodiment of patriotism. Just because you own a flag or say you love your country doesn't mean anything. Actions speak louder than words.

“Make the most you can of the Indian Hemp seed and sow it everywhere.” -George Washington

Hey everybody! A quote from George Washington! WOW!
As much as I love America... Nationalism is a dead end anyway.
When you all realize that we should all be waving the World flag and that I am the King of Earth we will all be in a better place.
It is absolutely rediculous to ban plants from mother nature.
Cannabis should be a staple in our salads every day and be next to the Kale and Cilantro at the grocery store.

Re: “Letters to the Editor

While reading the letters criticizing the Inlander's George Washington stoner cover I was reminded of a bumper sticker I saw recently: OH LIGHTEN UP !

Re: “Freedom to Suffer

"not allowing prayer in schools, for instance"

That's a completely wrong summary of the court's opinions -- they have NEVER outlawed praying in school. What they have outlawed is having public school officials impose prayer on students. This is a religious freedom decision.

Re: “Freedom to Suffer

Never mind the inconsistency of praising the court when its decisions please you and demonizing the court when its decisions displease you. The real flaw in this criticism is the assumption that an individual has some right to force his or her employer to provide reproductive health benefits. The only basis for this remarkable proposition is regulations written by unelected bureaucrats after the Democrats passed Obama care. The statues don't require this. Rather than throwing a tantrum when you can't force others to provide for you, perhaps you can grow up and provide for yourself from your paycheck like your parents and grandparents did.

Re: “Almost Ready to Call It

Just for the sake of appearances, and to prove we're not yet some banana republic with only the façade of democracy, let's have an election, anyway. Who knows? Some charming amateur from nowhere with a gift for empty rhetoric may take the electorate by storm and win it.

Re: “Stuck in a Box

"Stuck in a Box": Foreign war bad. "Fireworks of Freedom": Foreign war good. Moral: Don't lose foreign wars? Do some focus group research before fighting foreign wars? Win or lose, get it over before the American public loses interest?

Re: “Fireworks of Freedom

Those guys were heroic, and no doubt about it. I wonder if Americans today would be willing to fight to liberate Europe. Who would suggest it? The hated neo-cons? The Ron Paul wing of the Republican party? Progressives? Our commander in chief?

Re: “Soccer Conspiracy

Coulter hates the left and abhors immigration. Hence, her diatribe on soccer. Coulter’s inexplicable hatred of the Other is one reason why we should Never Trust Ann Coulter – at ANY Age, a new book available at www.coulterwatch.com/never.pdf.
