Re: “Happy Ending?

If your dad was the scuba store he was no better he bailed in the middle of the night emptying the store and owing customers thousands of dollars in prepaid products and not paying suppliers.

Re: “Bitter Pills?

Well it can't be much worse than what the county staff was offering before. I spent 2 weeks there in 2015 and tried to get seen for a skin infection. When I got out I had to go to the hospital for IV antibiotics the day of my release. Not one reply in 10+ request for care. Spokane is a hellhole compared to the 3 other jails I've unfortunately been booked at.

Re: “Good News, Bad News

In reality businesses don't pay taxes. If their costs increase, they raise the price of the good or service they sell. The consumer pays the increased cost. Some businesses sell products for which there are readily available substitutes. For example, if the cost of a restaurant meal gets too high, people will brown bag instead of buying lunch at a fast food restaurant. The fast food restaurant either finds ways to cut its costs and reduce its prices, or it goes out of business. If the restaurant must pay a high minimum wage, it can reduce its costs by mechanizing and reducing its labor force. Congratulations! You've just hurt the workers whom you were trying to help.

These concepts are basic microeconomics, and like basic arithmetic, they're not political or ideological. Hate it all you like, but it's how the economy works. Magical thinking won't change it, and meddling will have real consequences.

Re: “Good News, Bad News

So again, you must really hate any new change or changes that come your way...and you hate the very idea of treating humans like human beings.

Some policy makers have an ego and want thier buddy corp's to make more than perhaps 5% to 30% plus on profiteering.....don't get us wrong, we want and enjoy the fact the single proprierships , and or big corp's can and should make money....but dear god in heaven must it be at a fellow humans expense???????????????????????????????????????

Re: “Good News, Bad News

Let's connect some dots. If we implement policies that increase labor costs, eventually it's less expensive to mechanize and eliminate jobs. Businesses that decrease their costs will have a competitive advantage over those that don't. Another illustration of how policy makers actually hurt those whom they're trying to help by meddling with things they don't understand.

Re: “'Seek and Destroy'

Regardless of whether it's mandated by the Supreme Legislature--I mean Court--spending money without regard to outcomes is stupid and wasteful. Why continue to spend money if outcomes aren't better?

Re: “'Unreasonable Threat to Life and Property'

Yes to K ....the small claims is the exempted court venue for tenants to sue said landlords.

Yes and thank you for your comments.....if and when the council can and will make a court of venue change, from regular court to the small claims court...only then will us and our support system have the whereathall to achieve justice for poorly maintained rental properties.

Re: “'Unreasonable Threat to Life and Property'

I checked Rhonda's link for Small Claims court. There's nothing in that document saying a tenant can't sue a landlord. Please elaborate.

Re: “Taxes, Wages and Pot

Payroll taxes are taxes imposed on employers or employees, and are usually calculated as a percentage of the salaries that employers pay their staff. Payroll taxes generally fall into two categories: deductions from an employee’s wages, and taxes paid by the employer based ideas available at

Re: “Road to Nowhere

Mr. Nethercutt says Hillary won't "miss a political trick, because with the Clintons, obsessed with political power, the ends always justify the means" as if GOP candidates and their handlers and ratf**kers aren't exactly the same. He also says that a wise political maxim is: "You can't get hurt for what you don't say" and yet his party obsessively attacks Obama for not being politically correct by saying the words "radical Islam." Typical George illogical word goulash.

Re: “Mad as Hell

If technological advances are the cause of income inequality, and assuming income inequality is real and also bad, then the cure should be to outlaw technological advances. Accepting the cause of evil and simply treating the symptoms is immoral. Progressives need to have the courage of their beliefs and implement their Luddite tendencies.

Re: “Bryant: 'No' to Trump

This article completely misunderstands our relationship with Russia. In one of her brilliant moments of statesmanship as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton "hit the reset button" with Putin, thereby starting a new era of friendliness and cooperation. According to the beloved Bill Clinton, Hillary is the most qualified presidential candidate ever, so that must mean that everything is great with Russia. And as our equally gifted President famously told Mitt Romney when Mitt called Russia the greatest threat to us, the 1980's called and want their foreign policy back.
