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.

Shouldn't it be "Whom do you trust?"

No grudges that predate the 20th century? Apparently the author had a happy childhood.

Re: “The Trumpenstein Monster

If I understand this article correctly, the author believes that Fox news is implanting messages in his brain. Take off the foil hat, stay away from the cutlery, double-check the dosage of the psychotropic meds, and call for help. Your TV is not talking to you or controlling you.

Re: “Paradox of the West

I'm confused. I thought we couldn't celebrate the history of the American West because it was the result of repression and brutalization of Native Americans. Shouldn't we be hanging our heads in shame for the collective misdeeds of those who built the places we love?

Re: “No Pain, No Gain

Of the gallons of blood that the state has sucked from our veins, this year it deigned to return a pint or two. If somebody thinks that's a good deal, I have some Enron stock I'd be willing to sell them.

Re: “Paradox of the West

Yes.. you built it all. You didn't have workers making you rich. Oh wait maybe you did. Or maybe you are one of those that spits at the Union yet uses the roads. You built nothing on your own.

Re: “The Rachel We Knew

The anti-white comments are troubling because people heard those and believed they were coming from a black person. They were not.
It's very sad.
Meanwhile, black people everywhere have trouble having their legitimate voices and stories getting heard.
Being an "ally" doesn't mean posing as someone and co-opting their story for personal gain. Her refusal to talk directly to anyone BUT the national media shows you that her entire goal was notoriety for herself. And she's still doing it, she's still no facebook holding up a martyr flag.

Re: “Paradox of the West

Any idea what the point of this article is?

Are we supposed to believe that all of a person's effort and hard work are pointless and unworthy of praise unless he/she is a member of a community? "all of us together" do not have the right to reap the fruits of MY labor, that is communism.

Re: “First Four Out

Heh, I do get a perverse sort of pleasure in hearing Nethercutt talk about integrity and trust. How many terms did you serve, congressman? Listening to you is like taking medical advice from a cigarette company spokesman.
