Re: “New Blood

Of course "parts of Spokane already look like Detroit". They are infested with democrats. It was absolutely "a bunch of democrats" who led the economic downturn. Democrats controlled congress and the senate and they fought tooth and nail to stop any reforms of Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac. They created a system that collapsed when left unchecked. Obamacare is a similar system, only this time they will destroy healthcare and not the housing industry.

Real employers are driven away by HIGH taxes and a HIGH work force. Crappy roads and crumbling infrastructure go a long way to keeping industry out of the area. Crime is a problem because leftists refuse to jail and then imprison criminals. If you tire of crime, lock the criminals up once and for all. Yet leftists constantly demand we set them free to prowl the streets ASAP.

If you dislike the sewer you live in stop working so hard to create a sewer. If you worked as hard to fix the stupidity of the left as you did to blame others for it's failures, we would live in the Utopia you are trying to create.

Re: “Defending the System

What about the victims? While every nearby progressive runs to the defense of the next cop killer or child rapist I wonder if they ever thought about the victims of their beloved charges? It is touching to see the local leftist celebrate when a rapist is set free to rape again or a local scumbag with 31 felony convictions destroys a local bakery. These people are after all, just democrats looking for a little support from the taxpayer for their ills.

But my concern is for the victim of the robbery, the child who is assaulted by the molester our local progressive are hugging and clapping on the back. I worry about my family as they are locking every door and window in hopes of keeping the democrats from helping themselves to my hard earned property.

I'm sure some leftist lawyer was hugging the 8-time convicted drunk driver who killed my Dad and telling the loser how he was a victim of a terrible disease. All the time failing to explain how alcoholism causes driving without a license. Never mind that he had killed before and left a thirty year trail of carnage in his wake. He was and is still an adored victim of something for the leftist community.

I have a hard time celebrating the criminal and his lackey lawyers after being a victim of their crimes. Why is their NEVER an article in the rag about the thousands of Spokanites harmed by the criminals it celebrates every week?

Re: “Those Teeth Are Sharp

I wonder why the left adores Clinton this time, when they threw her under the bus eight years ago? She is the same criminal she was then, she still uses any government office for her own personal enrichment and gain. She is as corrupt as any politician in the last two centuries. She lies constantly, destroys records, hides emails and leave her ambassadors to be anally raped to death in mid-eastern countries. Her whore-mongering husband will be back at it full time in the Offal office.

The racist left will be destroying a Cuban American for daring to believe in God and a balanced budget. I am willing to bet, Ted Cruz has a college transcript, unlike some other Ivy League president.

Re: “Scathing report confirms what a disaster Idaho’s Schoolnet is

Excuse me but the $61 million was spent by the Dept. of Education run at that time by a very REPUBLICAN CONSERVATIVE named TOM LUNA.

Re: “Those Teeth Are Sharp

I'd like to see Elizabeth Warren. Although it seems we put too much weight on the presidency. The title is the target for national outrage no matter whose in office. Easier to but blame on whatever someone is unhappy about, on one person. Of course the president is important, but it's electing Congress we should use our brains for.

Re: “Nudists express concerns about bikini barista initiative

I wonder if the Islamic countries had a similar problem back in the day, regulated that a certain amount of female flesh had to be covered and it just slid into the habib wearing culture that distrusts the ability of its men not to attack a woman with lust if he can see more than their eyes? That's the trouble with morality laws: any minority can push for THEIR morals to be the ONLY valid ones, regardless how anyone else wants to live. Shame on these women for attempting to push their personal preferences onto everyone else by making it a law. Maybe I should go door to door to get the city council to broadly ratify my personal preferences by saying it only applies to some distasteful minority group. Worked for the Nazi's didn't it?

Re: “Washington fire chiefs to railroad company: We want more info on oil trains

As always it is heartening to see how first responders rise to the occasion to protect us all. if only such heroism rubbed off just a little on the railroad industry.
The first duty of government is to protect citizens, not shareholders.
The rail industry takes advantage of lax regulators, pro-business governments, frail labor unions, and our desire for oil independence to roll the dice on safety.
They run 150 ton tank cars on 8000 foot trains with skeletal crews, well dictated by the profit motive.
An alliance of railway workers, environmentalists, and blast zone citizens can force a safer method of transporting crude oil.
Begin by signing the linked petition asking the Federal Railroad Administration to enforce railroad health and safety rules.
Please sign the petition at

Re: “Those Teeth Are Sharp

Hillary will be mollycoddled by a fawning press corps and any Republican--especially the conservative ones--will be personally attacked and demagogued relentlessly. Call me an optimist, but the majority of likely voters will recognize the attempt to fix the race. Hillary is less personable than Bill, and the kid glove treatment will backfire because it will reinforce the perception that she sees herself as entitled and above the rules that lesser people must follow.

Re: “A County Ombudsman?

The important thing to remember is the City OPO...does NOT have independent investigative authority by any stretch of the imagination based on the Guild contract negotiated by Frank Straub and David Condon. They may however have audit authority allowing them to audit various aspects of the SPD...we shall see.


It is important to also keep in mind that the "body camera legislation" is a law enforcement backed bill that will prohibit public disclosure of video in most cases and also has wiretap language which if passed would allow LEOs to intercept private communications with out being a party to the communication for the first time EVER in the State of Washington. The bill also does not contain the "no other available investigative method" clause currently in RCW 9.73.


I believe the "body camera legislation" is back in rules for a second reading...there is a good likelihood the bill will not pass which will mean that SPD and the SCSO will use the AG's opinion regarding the release of video which will allow nearly all of the video to be withheld from the public as they will need to follow the exceptions to the Public Records Act.

As the Sheriff, Straub, Condon, and Mielke know full well the Citizens Commission overseeing Seattle PD has recommended Seattle PD NOT go ahead with body cameras until proper legislation is passed...something that might be unlikely at this point.


As far as the SPD is concerned it is important to understand the contract negotiated by Frank Straub with the Police Guild gives the Guild complete control of body cameras and prohibits independent investigations by the OPO.

Re: “Women's history doc, outdoor yoga and T.A.S.T.Y. tunes

Thank you for your article! I'm big fitness hopper, I used to do cross-fit and TRX but now I'm doing yoga. The great thing when you change workouts is that your body can't go into plateau, so you grow muscles and lose fat quickly. I've lost 30 pounds in two months. On this website you can find some free cool various workouts www.247fitnesswebshop.com

They tried to make Cutter a part of this quiz, but it kept kicking the quiz's ass, so they had to remove it in defeated shame.

Re: “New Blood

You know something? There's are many parts of Spokane that already look like Detroit. The economic blight Spokane now faces is the result of your conservative establishment. And don't even go there and tell me that is was a bunch of liberals and it's because of the economic downturn. This stagnation has been going on for years and was caused by the indifference of the real people in control of this town and this county! They have created a system to keep real employers from coming in here especially those who won't do things the way the Spokane "Old Boys" want them to do. They have also failed to address the problem of crime which is the result of economic decay not what some so-called liberals have done! Open your eyes for once! #changespokane

Re: “Those Teeth Are Sharp

Gee whiz Tom, we sure have a lot of news and opinion from Idaho in this week's edition. Does your paper really have to cater to Idaho so much? Your readership must almost certainly be overwhelmingly from Spokane County. I don't mind an occasional story about a music thing or some monumental story in Idaho, but it just seems like in recent months you have gone way overboard on Idaho coverage.

Re: “One man's fine line between stupid and sexy at Spokane Community College

The poster is offensive. It unwittingly suggests that bisexuality is polyamory. However, what is really offensive is that it suggests that bisexuality is specifically about sex. I find it actually a disservice to display that type of message when the bisexual community is deserving of so much more awareness, like who they are and how to change public policy that limits bisexuals. This image is cheap and undermines the cause.

Re: “Scathing report confirms what a disaster Idaho’s Schoolnet is

$61million dollars but yet the rally cry of the neo-liberals is still "schools need more money!!!" - "Support our kids, vote for the new levy!" Bulls**t. I am sick of schools getting a free pass wasting millions and billions of dollars while failing to hold themselves and their employees accountable. I am done ever again voting for to pass another levy until I see concerted evidence that schools stop flushing our hard earned tax dollars down the toilet because they know there will always be more coming. And that includes the continued codling of violent, non-performers who suck up 80% of an educators / administrators time while negatively contributing to the scholastic environment.
