Re: “Trump vs. Jesus

Great article! As a Christian I gave up on the Republicans when they did nothing about Roe vs.
Wade when they had the presidency, the supreme court and the congress under Bush 2. I really admire Max Lacado for saving what he did about Trump.

Re: “CONCERT REVIEW: Bonnie Raitt gives Spokane something to talk about

Unfortunately Allen Stone was directly 2 rows behind me and clapped so loud as to block out the band..He does have good meter, but ruined many songs for all those around him...I thought he was retarded or something.

Re: “WA Supreme Court overrules judge's order for homeless woman to pay $15 monthly fines

Who was the judge. Benton County actually has a record of this. The cost of living is so high in that town I had to move to Spokane just to survive. You can't survive on 750.00 per month in the tri cities. I could hardly survive there even when I was working for Amazon.

Re: Disrespect on 9/11

Some, including me, choose not to give Al-Qaeda the satisfaction of participating in any rituals to commemorate their despicable act of cowardice and murder on 9/11. We mourn the victims in our own way, perhaps on Memorial Day or other times of our choosing, without waving flags at half-staff, which is our First Amendment right. Perhaps if there were less nationalistic flag-waving we would not be supplying billions of dollars in arms to an apartheid nation or still be engaged in an endless war against a word, terrorism, that has killed a hundred times more innocent lives than were lost on 9/11.

I enjoyed this article. I thought it was an important message that we all need to hear.

Hey, Hillary didn't go into a coughing fit and Trump looked presidential.

Re: “To Kill the Black Snake

Hello Everyone.
I'm glad this pipeline is being discussed. I'm an oil investor and a lover of our earth. Go head - laugh. Now let me speak. You already voted for this pipeline ( and I truly wish you didn't ) Each and every one of you did. Every time you buy gasoline or flip on a switch or buy food at a market - you just gave us your consent to keep drilling for oil. You tell us to drill for oil by using it - and the energy and the access to goods it provides. You vote with your money. Each time you spend it. And those dollars are each 1000 times more powerful than whatever candidate you vote for, or protest you attempt. You see, your money is your endorsement of an action. What you say doesn't matter if your actions contradict what you say. All land is sacred. Every inch of Earth is just as sacred as every other inch. Just because you can see This pipeline you don't like it. Well- to keep up with all the oil and gas everyone keeps demanding - via buying it- we keep drilling and building pipelines. Would it be better if it was running through some else's backyard? Somebody else's sacred ground? My most sacred ground is where ever my children play. You seem to be attached to where your ancestors are buried. If you wish to honestly protest oil- STOP BUYING IT ALL THE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: “I Saw You

To whoever wrote to wish Bisexuals a Happy Bi-Visibility Day...THANK YOU!!!! 😘 My son-in-law (married to my son) is bisexual and this meant SO MUCH to him. He and my son were getting ready to head out the door for an overseas trip when I showed this to him and my son. Both of them thank you so much for your recognition and support of bisexuality. I also thank you! And that post above this one? I totally don't understand it if it was about that. I didn't see anywhere that it said walk tall...just stand tall. And my son-in-law is doing just that!

Re: “Trump vs. Jesus

Incredibly powerful words from you dad and mom. Even as a liberal, I appreciated every aspect of this article, and could understand what your parents felt. I could only imagine their difficult decision on what to do/who to vote for. They are good people to stick by their faith and recognize that Trump truly has nothing in common- from his multi marriages to his seedy business deals to his humiliation of those he see "less" than he is.

I've seen a good friend change from Republican to Independent, because Trump is not what his Republican Party stood for- he is not the party of Abraham Lincoln. I've had conversations with my conservative mother-in-law about the matter- and feels just as strongly as your parents do due to her faith, and would rather see Hilary win.

This article should hit home so for many, no matter what side of the aisle you are on. We all have those in our lives feeling this conundrum and I truly hope this helps open their eyes.

Re: “Why was Spokane Police Capt. Brad Arleth removed from his big race-data project?

Signs of just how deep the problems are, and will remain unless the right decision is made regarding a new Chief of Police of Police and New Direction for SPD.

Another sad commentary, and likely more to come!

Re: “To Kill the Black Snake

Oh my goodness.
I have grown so weary of folks playing the poor victim in an attempt to squeeze some more money out of others.

Currently, we need oil as a fuel. Solar and wind will NEVER be enough to quench the energy thirst. The energy yields are not high enough and physics will not be denied.

In the future, as it is now, WE WILL ALWAYS NEED OIL AS A RICH ORGANIC SOURCE.

Get over it, and grow up.

Plastics make our world work. Look around and notice it all around you.

It was not an invention of third world people fighting, killing, kidnapping, raping and eating other third world people with their average life expectancy of 35 years as it was before the great Christopher Columbus set sail in 1492.

No, it was one of many inventions created by the descendants of people who immigrated here centuries ago. In fact, these same descendants are responsible for over HALF of ALL inventions ever created by humans in their million year history.

Look it up.

The truth is, without these same descendants of immigrants, there would be no native people left. Hitler, Stalin, Tojo etc. would have eradicated any survivors that made it past the 19th century.

History has shown, time after time, inferior cultures get consumed by far superior ones.

Without the amazing work of these descendants of immigrants, most of the folks whining like spoiled children on this thread would not be writing naive, self serving, ignorance infused, tripe on devices created by other descendants of immigrants.

So, down vote me all you want (another invention of descendants of immigrants, by the way) in your petty little fits of spite, but deep down in your soul where you can't even lie to yourself , you know I'm correct.

If you really want to go native, be authentic and not hypocritical and all, consider doing without plastic, your car, your computer, a grocery store, money, cotton, metal and reject the ways of the descendants of immigrants. Hunt, gather and make clothing for yourself; just like your ancestors did.

Then maybe, just maybe, you will have some credibility....and learn to appreciate what the descendants of immigrants have done to make your life possible.....and better than any life your ancestors could have ever dreamed of having.

BTW: You should really celebrate Columbus Day; he helped make your amazing life possible.

Now, let the petty and childish down voting.....begin.

Re: “Steep Learning Curve

We appreciate all of the services available to our children. As addiction assessments determine treatment levels, therapies can be designed for various intensities. I can't imagine anyone making a major change in their life in 15 days, however. Please continue to work collaboratively to help the children.

Look at the letter R in the "N" word compare it to the letter R in Trump. They were written by two different people.

Re: “OK, Hold Your Nose

There is the hard truth of what is at stake regarding the presidential choice. Even if you have to vote somewhat against your principles in that matter to avoid a crisis, you still have plenty of opportunity to get your message out about the direction you want your country to go. This you do by voting in the local, state and congressional candidates that align the best with your principles/ convictions. So if for instance Hillary wins, but the Congress goes in favor of a congress far to the left of her, I'm sure Hillary will get the message and has to govern accordingly.
