Re: “The Future is Smaller

The next generation expects LESS because socialism delivers FAR LESS. It is a sad commentary when publication celebrates the failures of socialism as a positive. No house? No chance to afford a house and no way to finance a house on your $15 buck an hour McDonald's job,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,thank socialism.

No retirement and no inclination to plan and save for retirement? Thanks socialism and the false hope of millions of Americans that the government will feed and care for them in their twilight years. As the Greeks are learning, having money in a bank controlled by communists and socialists means you are still in poverty with everyone else. They seize the banks and refuse to allow you access to your hard earned money. With socialism running the show, "fairness" means everyone is ruined equally.

Millennials, sitting in a park "socializing" with other poverty stricken losers is kind of sad actually. Posting your jobless stories of dope smoking and bongo drum parties instead of working an eight hour day at a job that would fully fund a nice life, a modern day tragedy. A sad, sad testament to the rise of communism and government funded misery for all.

The future is SMALL, for those who expect their lives to be funded by those who work. The future is dark for those who put their faith in government programs instead of self reliance.

Re: “Beware, Be Ready

If you look at the aftermath of Katrina you will see that 99.99% of all democrats will not prepare in the least. They will sit idle and wait for Uncle Foodstamp to send in the military with hot chow and blankets to feed and cloth them. If you prepare, they will attack you and demand you give up your goods and belongings, they have a "right" to a "fair share" after all.

The next quake could be in 400 years or a thousand, they have no earthly way of accurately predicting this event. It is as mysterious as "global warming" and as impossible to predict as it would be to get an accurate forecast TODAY for September 15th.

Prepare all you like, if the power goes off for five days, the democrats will, rob rape, loot and burn whatever is left and no one will come to aid those who planned for their future. That is the way of the democrat, punish planning and success and reward criminality, sloth and ignorance.

Re: “The Trumpenstein Monster

Given the choice of an American who made his billions investing in America and feels compelled to speak his mind while every politician in federal service lines up to sell the nation to foreign invaders, terrorists, dictators and corporations OR a morally bankrupt woman who has filled her pockets with $2 BILLION dollars in bribes and graft as she and her morally bankrupt rapist husband robbed the nation blind, I'll take Trump.

The fact this paper supports a criminal like Hillary Clinton and feels no reason o question any of her scandals, schemes or corruption renders any opinion of it's staff valueless.

Re: “Who Do You Trust?

Democrats fought to keep slavery.
Democrats got us into WWI.
Democrats got us into WWII.
Democrats got us involved in the Korean war.
Democrats got us in Vietnam and killed 53,000 Americans.
Democrats, including John Kerry and Hillary Clinton supported, encouraged and voted to support the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

When the democrats kill American service, leave hostages to rot in Iran or leave our borders open to foreign invaders they like to blame republicans for their failures. The fact is that their policies are policies of failure. The democrats want to destroy America as badly as the people running Iran. Nothing on earth hates like the "religion of peace" or is as intolerant as the "party of tolerance".

Re: “The Trumpenstein Monster

I think trump has seen an opportunity in thus election, and is perfectly positioning himself to great advantage. Since he is self financing, he can stay in right up to the election, after most of the field has dropped out after their diners see the writing on the wall and cut their losses. If we end up at the convention with two potential winners, ans trump as #3 with just enough delegates locked up to keep either of the others from winning, he can demand anything he wants, to throw his votes to one side or the other.

Re: “Who Do You Trust?

Robert Herold trusts Ayatollah Khamenei more than Republicans. That really says something about Herold.

Re: “Beware, Be Ready

Dear Miss McKay, Thanks for your "Beware, be Ready" article in The Inlander.

The last time I thought about such matters was when I had an additional duty as a disaster preparedness NCO, shortly before my retirement from the USAF in 1986.

Versed on nuclear, chemical, and biological warfare, I settled in Spokane, after retiring, despite having no nearby relatives, here, because my research gave me to believe that this area was less disaster prone than almost anywhere else I could settle us.

Not that I kidded myself that the risk was zero, but I was playing the percentages.

Of course, much of your guidance is sound and what I've long been familiar with it. At age 71, though, I suspect that my next disaster will be more certain, more singular, and unavoidable. I'll just have to be brave at my moment of extremity.

Re: “Who Do You Trust?

Republicans hastened the rise of Hitler. Huh?

I know you have tenure and don't care anymore but this is nonsense.

Re: “Who Do You Trust?

I love this. Notice how he misses the whole Soviet Union part of the Cold War. Who was right on that one? It sure wasn't the McGovern, Carter or Mondale wing of the party.

Kind of a big thing to leave out. I bet those Gonzaga students feel a bit cheated when they take a class from this guy and he leaves out the most important things.

Re: “Beware, Be Ready

People who think this situation is entertaining or funny or who fetishize it are sick in the head. You won't be laughing when it happens. For real, get ready or be prepared to pay the consequences.

Re: “The Trumpenstein Monster

I agree with the fact that Trump is a creation of the GOP - Fox News, AM Radio, Gerrymandering, and voter suppression have created a modern "conservative" party that is way out of step with the mainstream; HOWEVER, I disagree with the dismissive tone this publisher's note and many other media reports take when discussing The Donald.

He is has the support of around 1/5 of voters in a large GOP field that includes seasoned politicians, GOP celebrities, and, of course, the next Republican to be nominated for President. He is the unabashed personification of the most vocal and active "conservative" movement in America, and anyone that pays attention to this movement knows that he is far from extreme when compared to others Republicans all over the nation already hold public office. (Matt Shea for example.)

It is both paternalistic and misleading for the press to portray Trump as a caricature or side show. Warren G Harding maybe, Frankenstein not so much.
