Re: “The Contenders

Don't forget the measles aspect, either.

Here's an article from the NY Times earlier this month talking about how getting the measles can reduce the ability of the body to ward off other infections as well:…

Re: “The Contenders


Here's what Fagan said:
“Men and women are not equal,” he said. “Biologically, there are differences between men and women. Is a 150-pound woman (police officer) going to be able to control a 250-pound, out-of-control so-and-so?”…

Re: “The Contenders

Easy to pick who you will and won't vote for. Money will be raised for some of the new candidates.

Re: “Hiring Among Friends

Mielke got a degree to advance his career, and that's bad? He networks to find another job like unemployment counselors suggest, and that's bad? Didn't the Utah candidate leave his last position under an ethical cloud due to outside consulting, and yet he's "well-qualified"? Wouldn't anybody in the position be an at-will employee and subject to pressure from County Commissioners? This seems like a lot of handwringing without much substance.

Re: “The Contenders

"Ben Krauss, an analyst with the city who said he's running because of Fagan's views on pay differences between men and women working in city government."

I hate to ask...but what are Fagan's views on this matter?

Re: “Promises and Payments

Thank God, someone finally created some shade for the Ag Center each winter. Oh, change that to thank you WW for keeping our Ag Center in your very large hotel's shadow all winter and running up the city's heating costs, icing up the sidewalks and blocking views.

Re: “Hiring Among Friends

This whole thing smells like a Port-a-Potty. Were we, the citizens of Spokane County, paying Mielke's full-time salary while he was off to school in Seattle? Even worse, were we paying his tuition and travel expenses? Very smelly.

Sort of as Desi would've said to Lucy, "Todd, you got some reimbursin' to do!"

Re: “The Collaborator

Murray is a die-hard liberal, but can still compromise, negotiate and succeed. And she's learned that you have to act in good faith by keeping your word and not insulting your opponents. I wonder how she managed to learn these lessons, which the President has not learned.

Re: “Presidential Litmus Test

George Nethercutt speaks as if he were a vanguard of moral authority in this land. But his party of obstructionists and servants of the "one percent" is the cause of most of our country's woes. With their vengeful and almost childlike contempt for Obama and progressive politics in general, they are part of the problem, not the solution. Our infastructure is crumbling....roads, bridges, water systems, sewer systems, and lots more, but the Republicans are not coming forth with the funding to rebuild them, in spite of all the jobs that would create. I agree with the commenter in a recent Inlander issue, who stated that "our system is so out of touch with the needs of the people, it's almost juvenile"...and it's folks like Nethercutt who are to blame.

Re: “A Culture of Support

What we really CRAVE is a world where you stop whining about how the rest of us are not meeting your needs. We dream of a world where you parent your own children and stop depending on teachers, administrators, policemen and firemen to do the job of raising your children. A lovely place where the employed are not funding dregs through higher taxes and huge insurance premiums. A glowing peaceful retreat, uncluttered by dope smoking duffle bags laying on the sidewalks grubbing for change.

Victims of "injustice" would be far more likely to get public support if they were not killed in the commission of a felony. I'd settle for not having to hear about how hard the police are making it to deal heroin, shoplift, rob and steal. It is their job to make it tough on the sewage of society.

Read the hate filled rant from James McPherson. James would happily put those who disagree with him to death, in a gulag or on the tracks heading for a "re-education camp". He feels anyone who disagrees with him should be persecuted and is not entitled to all the "love and kindness" he professes to spread. A strange world, where kindness is limited to those who tow the party line and never disagree with his ideology. A world that exists in Myanmar, Russia, China, Venezuela and in the Caliphate of ISIL. Nothing is quite a hateful or as intolerant as someone who professes to "love" and "tolerate".

Re: “Promises and Payments

Well that money is getting tied up probably because they are trying figure out away to give themselves raises again..... and from the sounds of it I wouldn't deal with any people like you, who renig on a deal.

So let the contamination reach the water, let city council take more raises... whatever happened to being a man of your word?

Re: “Derailed

You forget to mention how this prick treats the hospital and rehabilitation staff. How about the verbal abuse that he doles out to the people that have to help his worthless ass. As if it's their fault that he got ran over by a train. What a waste that the taxpayers have to pay for such ignorance.

I like what WW has done. The hotel is ugly however. We should not be paying for his project.

I'm not exactly sure why it is a "Grand Hotel". It looks like it was designed by a former Soviet Union planner with worse than average skills.

Re: “Derailed

In 2014, 458 people were killed on Washington state highways. 37% of them were alcohol related. In total 1,981 people died from alcohol abuse in Washington state in 2014. Is spending your adult life as a drunk or druggie really news?

The real issue is that taxpayers have spent the last 20 years paying the bills for this particular drunk. now me mangled himself and taxpayers will have to pay the freight on him until he dies. This man squandered his entire adult life on drugs and alcohol and we are supposed to feel sorry for him?

As my buddy used to say, "Play stupid games, Win stupid prizes."

Re: “A Culture of Support

Calling people names and making up stories about death threats makes James sound far more intelligent than most people. Maybe smart for a socialist, isn't that smart after all?
