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: “Token Democracy

As expressed above, not all applications for cell phones are intended to share data or keep clients in contact with each other or the news. One case is the Light Saber application that can be downloaded. This silly application exploits the accelerometer that most new advanced mobile phones have (the thing that "tells" the telephone when you are moving it around). download link

Re: “'Trust But Don't Verify'

Have video to post if can figure out how of local officer (very recent) abusing his authority in an official civil call show threaten the parent and child in arms with loaded firearm until parent had to scream for help and witnesses started recording after all attempt to come to parents assistance was harshly denied tube officer lied to supervising officer in front of two other officer and supported by them with all present seeing the wrongs committed the other offices refused doing their official duty to stop this officer from his blatant malicious attack on citizen well within rights. Stating "not our call." and just allowed the continue abuse of both the child and parent. This is not only morally wrong but legally very clear violation of many of the citizens rights and liberties according to the laws they are sworn to enforce and follow. To unlawfully arrest maliciously prosecute and steal a safe baby from a validly concerned parent with no legal order standing and arrest parent on trumped up charges just on personal bias with no investigation or care for child or parent. THE OFFICER EVEN SAYS THE WORDS " I DINT GIVE A F%$# ABOUT HER FEELINGS OR YOURS TO PARENT AND CHILD AFTER PARENTS PLEA FOR THE LOADED FIREARM NOT POINTED AT AM UNARMED PARENT HOLDING THE CHILD! This good old boy backing is still rampant all through the twisted system of Stevens county. The using threats of arrest, malicious prosecution, malicious use of child protection services, or shot as the kid shot in his bed at benny's colville inn. Then his young lifeless body thrown in the bathtub before investigators arrive "so could save the mattress " before investigators show. From witnesses there at time...the man on the house boat shot in front of his child the man in fruitland shot in back and killed with no weapon present... The lack of justice,accountability, transparency and a blatant disregard for the laws they are paid to not only abide by, enforce, but are to be held to a drastically higher, not lower, level of accountability. This good old boy backing is still rampant all through the workeres of this county threats of arrest , assault humiliation or child protection services. The police of Stevens county seem more of a terrorist group than a civil service organization to serve and protect the citizens of this great beautiful county we are blessed to live in.

Re: “'Trust But Don't Verify'

I've been arrested by a few of the mentioned and really it all reflects on their character anyway. Most of the mentioned "cops" are dbags and treat people like garbage and they profile among other things. Policeman need to be reminded that they serve us and they wouldn't be payed if the people didn't pay taxes. The responsibility of a police officer shouldn't be delegated to those who take it on a personal level and let it get to their head. They start power tripping and then they feel self entitled. When really they're here to serve and protect. Not terrorize the people. And that's what the majority of police in the world do. Use fear as a tactic. They are predators and we are the prey.

Re: “'Trust But Don't Verify'

IMO I believe they should let all the city cops go with Colville area. Too many instances have come up. It's time to bring in new recruitment. The gig is up and obviously the higher up don't give a damn.

Re: “'Trust But Don't Verify'

The WA 3rd district is the poorest district in the State of Washington. It has been for decades. The DEMOCRATS have dominated the WA 3rd district for decades. No Republican has held any legislative office in the 3rd district for decades.


Dump the DEMOCRATS! What do you have to lose?????

The liberal D's have done nothing for you and have been taking you for granted for decades.

Remember Lisa Brown? She now gets paid $300,000+ annual salary. (For doing what?????)

Her former aid, Marcus Riccelli is your state rep. It's a bet she still has his number......

Brown got a nice six figured annual pay off in your tax dollars. What did you get???????

Do you think Riccelli, Billing and Ormsby are focusing on your needs and the needs of the 3rd district? They are waiting for their pay off for services to the democrat party.

What are they doing for you?

Are you really better off than you were 4 years ago?

You are not the only victims of DEMOCRAT dominance; Detroit, Baltimore MD, Milwaukee, WI, Cleveland, OH etc.

It's time to kick the D's to the curb and send a message to Olympia and the rest of WASHINGTON STATE.

The 3rd district is not going to rubber stamp the democrat dolts on the ballot ANYMORE.

The GOP will want to keep the 3rd district and will move heaven and earth to do it.

Look at Wisconsin, New Jersey, Louisiana etc. They elected Republicans and they are doing much better.

DUMP THE DEMOCRATS 3rd district.

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.

Re: “Ground Down

Let's see.

Should we go for the legal beagle gal who will neglect the lands and never cut a tree; no matter how tinder dry it gets in our forest, or the guy who has been on the front lines fighting the fires caused by neglect of the liberal nutter elected to oversee Washington's Department of Natural Resources.

Since I could barely breath for over a month in 2015 thanks to the fires caused by awful forest management ala democrat Goldmark, I'm voting for the Republican McLaughlin.

Better to hire the party that puts out the fires versus the one the causes them.

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.
