Re: “Accidents All Over

Thank you for your thoughtful article. I am a volunteer for Joe Pakootas. I continue to be impressed with his hard work running for Congress. He is sincere and knowledgeable about the issues. CMR is out of touch with Eastern Washington and Congress in general is ineffective. We need to get Joe elected and bring about change to our region and our country. And thank you for putting the Democrats' feet to the fire. They have done next to nothing to support and help him. I am very disappointed to watch the local party turn their back on him. He has an excellent change at getting elected and they could have done more to make sure it happens.

Re: “Defending North Idaho

As much as I think there are a lot of good people up there, there is one force going against this getting any better: The American Redoubt.

It is becoming a mecca for survivalists, and a lot of them tend to build on the reputation that you write about.

Re: “Defending North Idaho

Sandpoint was the author's "adopted" hometown, and he no longer lives there. He certainly has the right to comment about whatever interests him, but he should reconsider his use of the term "carpetbagger." Glass houses, etc.

Re: “How's That For Respect?

Bill Clinton molested women, was accused of raping one, had relations with a subordinate in the Oval Office, lied about it under oath, which is perjury, and was impeached by the House. All the while, Hillary aided and abetted the cover up and smear campaign against his accusers. And now that allegations are leveled against Trump, Democrats have rediscovered their integrity and sense of right and wrong. Give me a break.

Re: “Accidents All Over

Wow..... the latest Pakootas attack add on CMR is deplorable, Joe in utter desperation is going Dirty Fast.

Bob is still apologizing for Tom Foley losing blaming it on bibles and Guns? Tom Foley lost it when he went on local TV and said he didn't care/ GAS what the majority of his constituents wanted and he wouldn't retire / return to live in his Spokane District if he lost..... True to his word this day he is a Permanent WASHINGTON DC resident the only Washington he truly loved....

Re: “How's That For Respect?

More important than a wage hike is FULL TIME STATUS. I agree the minimum wage needs to be raised. It is not a "living wage". However, I can make more money working full time at $9.47 per hour than I can working 24 hours a week at $13.00 per hour. Most employers in retail and food service do not hire employees to work full time. AND, if the minimum wage is increased, they will simply cut employees hours. At my last job, they were not required to give me a minimum number of hours per week. They could schedule me for 4 hours if they felt like it. Why? Why not give one person 40 hours instead of giving three people 13 hours? One reason is insurance. Companies are not required to provide insurance to part time employees. Why not just go out and get a second job? Sure, everyone wants to work two jobs and not have a life or a set schedule and pay for their own insurance. Fun times.

Re: “How's That For Respect?


You will one day regret your support of Hillary Clinton. It is only a matter of time before all of her crimes are exposed for all to see. Just like her husband was exposed as a lying whoremonger and sexual predator.

You will then realize you were a fool and believed in her despite being advised she was a proven liar.

I wonder if you will admit you were fooled or just say you voted for TRUMP?

My guess is It's hard for you and your ilk to admit to others that you were part of the problem....

Re: “How's That For Respect?

Thanks for showing trump supporters that no matter how much they ignore the facts & try to discredit Hillary, they are supporting a mean-spirited bully who is a danger to democracy. I voted for Hillary & support the democrats to promote equal rights and to make America kind, educated, sustainable, and prosperous!

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.

Didn't we just have 8 years of that?

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: “Money for President

@A little truth goes a long way

You apparently didn't read Tara's rant or bothered to check the dates on the comments of others; you're not very focused on facts or details, are you?

I thought they had blocks on The Inlander at local middle schools in Washington State.......

Re: “Defending North Idaho

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.
