Re: “Fat Cats

Sorry to be a spoilsport, but as a British emigre and recent addition to Spokane's population, I feel duty bound to point out that the position of 'Chief Mouser' has existed (if not in name but function) since the 1500's. As amusing as it is to think that Larry is the ultimate political survivor from this recent constitutional turmoil in my homeland, I think it's more to do with cats being more likeable than the cabal of jackasses running things currently.

Re: “Fat Cats

Given the deplorable record of big government, the tar and feathers should be saved for those who insist on doing the same things over and over again while expecting a different outcome.

Re: “Fat Cats

If I understand this article correctly, Congress is bad because its members won't rub up against Obama's trouser leg or sit in his lap like a cat named Larry, who happens to reside in London. Certainly an interesting and idiosyncratic opinion.

Re: “Comparison Shopping

Why is the Notorious HRC untrustworthy? Ask FBI director James Comey, who explained her recklessness with top secret information while she was Secretary of State and her lies about what she'd done. Trump had nothing to do with that.

Re: “Comparison Shopping

In any case, we know for sure that in this race we have one candidate, who mirrors the dictionary definition of traitor; willing to compromise her nations secrets for her own personal gain and the other, who doesn't. So, all the partisan hoopla aside, it really does boil down to just this question: Does America want as its president a woman who has openly and unabashedly lied and profited from it?

Let's hope not.

Re: “#BlackLivesMatter is Everyone

This article, yet again, is mostly unnecessary and flat. Like someone else already stated, it seems that you get all of your information on this sensitive subject from Facebook and Twitter. A delicate subject such as this warrants more meaningful research from a "journalist." You own a diversity consulting business. I would also expect more intelligent analysis from a "professional" in your field. I'm bothered, in every piece you write, by your glaring racism towards white people. Just because my skin is white doesn't mean I, or any of my ancestors, had anything to do with the atrocities committed by our forefathers. The quantity of a superficial demographic doesn't equate to its quality. Grouping all "white people" together in a derrogatory sect is super racist. Drumming up social controversy in your local community to benefit your business is shameful. And you seem conflicted whether #alllivesmatter or #blacklivesmatter suits you better. Either way, you offer zero substantive solutions to anything (though, again, this is your "career"), so all of this is meaningless. Good times.

Re: “#BlackLivesMatter is Everyone

Tara Dowd, an enrolled Inupiaq Eskimo, apparently acquired her understanding of US race relations from TV, movies and left wing extremist websites on the Internet. How many days in downtown Dallas, Houston, Detroit, New York, Chicago etc. has Tara lived?

My guess is , ZERO.

Read, study and research Tara before you embarrass yourself again. Repeating bogus rhetoric you heard from fantastical sources does not make one qualified to comment about any issue.

Re: “#BlackLivesMatter is Everyone

Ironically Slavery was very common among Native American tribes along with tribal warfare and genocide long before whitey showed up.

Native Americans also owned African slaves before WHITES outlawed Slavery.....

Re: “#BlackLivesMatter is Everyone

"It wasn't enough to eradicate a whole continent of brown people; colonizers enslaved 4 million African and black people as well." If Ms. Dowd would check past and present history, she would find that those four million people were initially enslaved by their own folks in their own country. African and Muslim tribes would raid villages and take prisoners to be sold into slavery. Yes, Americans unfortunately were a part of this traffic. But it was also white British and American citizens to who put a stop to the slave trade in their countries. However, we still see a very large slave trade in the world, and it is in Africa and some Middle Eastern countries (not being carried on by whites).

Much of the Black Lives Matter rhetoric does not come off as peaceful. There are too many voices in that movement calling for death to police, including the killing of several police today by a man described as a "black separatist". Martin Luther King, Jr. led a completely non-violent protest movement that was eminently successful. Today's protests lose their moral authority when they are accompanied by vandalism, property damage, and murder. A token side-comment about police will not get it, Ms. Dowd. Look at what is really happening and don't be sucked in by the violent words of people who are out to do harm.

Re: “Across the Pond

Too bad there isn't an enforcement mechanism for the oath of office for Supreme Court justices. The President and members of congress can be voted out, but not justices, who are appointed for life. When justices enact policy under the pretense of constitutional interpretation, there's no recourse. Accountability might engender a little humility and restraint.

Re: “'Paramount Duty'

Ginsburg's "mistake" was admitting the truth: The Supreme Court is political, partisan and functions as an unelected policy maker that is not accountable to voters.

Re: “#BlackLivesMatter is Everyone

See the story from the NY Times about a study from a Harvard economist. As compared to whites, blacks are statistically more likely to receive non-lethal force at the hands of police--and that's bad-- but not lethal force. Data, facts, and evidence should matter, too.

Re: “#BlackLivesMatter is Everyone

"Because of the fear I have for my brother as he walks down the street or drives to work. He is a free man contributing to society, but I have no doubt that my big, brown, tatted brother would be shot if he didn't immediately show his belly to those who have badges and guns."

Tara Dowd is an apparent sad victim of propaganda and ignorance. If she were even remotely informed, she will fear her brother would be killed by another male of color versus law enforcement; if facts, history and statistics be our guide.

Black Lives Matters (BLM) is agenda driven. Sadly, the agenda is not the lives of black people or any one else. It is about power, cash and exploiting the terminally ignorant.

Born from the hype generated by the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO the unconvinced felon Michael Brown, fresh off robbing a business, was shot as he attempted to steal the gun from a police officer.

A Grand Jury as well as the US Justice Dept. concurred Michael Brown was the author of his own demise, and the cop was forced to shoot.

Obama, Jesse, Sharpton or anyone else has ever apologized for being completely WRONG about what happened in Ferguson, or compensated business for the damages caused by the mindless rioting.

These facts are not in dispute. Yet BLM, born of lies, continues on to this day advocating for the death of police officers---especially white ones ("Pigs in a blanket.....")

The truth is, black males from their teens until their 40s are BY FAR more likely to die from murder than from police.
BY FAR the number one killer of black youths from their teens until their 40s?????? OTHER BLACK YOUTHS!!!

The numbers are staggering, and show BLM and it's leadership for what it is; a cruel money / power driven organization exploiting the ignorant and hurting the innocent (Dallas).

Sadly, Tara Dowd's re-bleating what she heard on Moveon.org, MSNBC and other such heavily partisan organizations, only hurts our nation and our community. We don't need this.

Even the Inlander can do better than this apparent lemming, parroting lies, posing as a columnist....

Re: “'Paramount Duty'

Ruth Bader Ginsburg needs to resign or be impeached. Appointed by Clinton, this partisan has been no judge per se and has been an embarrassment to the Supreme Court and the United States for decades.

She is an excellent reason why the Democrats should dump Hillary; she would only appoint Ginsburg like drones to the SCOTUS.

Notice the council president who is desperate to be mayor is standing next to a rather large downtown retailer, who is closing its main downtown store, on his watch....thanks in a large part, to his failed leadership....
