Re: “Seattle high schools are starting later. Here's why Spokane schools aren't

I wish they would start later. I even switched districts to avoid the new start time of 8:30am. Unfortunately due to family turmoil we had to re-enroll in the district. Not looking forward to getting a kid with sleep issues up earlier than last year.

Re: “Idaho rancher killed after encounter with Adams County Sheriff's deputies

more official obfuscation from the the cops that crossed the line of civility and are attempting to make a new narrative that will justify their home grown terror against their enemy (the American citizens)!

If you're thinking of taking the plunge yourself, we at The Huffington Post would like to offer you a piece of wisdom: Get a swivel chair before you put those headsets on.

Re: “Gov. Jay Inslee: You bet we're still going to take Syrian refugees. Idaho Gov. Otter: Nope.

More Americans have been killed in 2015 by Americans than have been killed by terrorists. I am more likely to get killed by a drunk driver on my way home from work than I am by a Refugee. To quote Benjamin Franklin " They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety"

Re: “Spokane Police Guild president put on paid leave as part of Sheriff's investigation

I have been curious for quite a while about the identities of the Guild leaders. Now I know one of them.

Re: “Gov. Jay Inslee: You bet we're still going to take Syrian refugees. Idaho Gov. Otter: Nope.

The so-called "christian" hypocrites and pols who turn their back on those in desperate need are truly despicable. Others like them turned away Jews fleeing the Nazis using very similar rhetoric. Shame on them, and on us as a nation. So many here have been sucked in by the fear-mongering and ignorance, mostly on the Right who've made it a part of the R platform. FYI, none of the Paris attackers were Syrian refugees, and you're far, far more likely to be killed by a gun-toting American that any refugee.

Re: “How Coldwater Creek helped build a community

Good riddance!
Cold water creek is NOT a green company. I asked them months ago to stop mailing me their paper catalog, and they STILL continue to send it.
If having them go under is one way to get the junk mail to stop, then hoorah!

Re: “Gov. Jay Inslee: You bet we're still going to take Syrian refugees. Idaho Gov. Otter: Nope.

We already have enough Non citizens in this state not to mention in this country! When do you say enough is enough! People of this country rise up and make your voice heard! why as it is do I feel like the minority when ever and where ever I venture out in public! It makes me so angry to know that our own government cannot see fit to draw a line and so NO to no more immigrants/illegals! Why is it that an illegal can have a child in this country and that child automatically becomes a uUS citizen! Something wrong with that picture11

Re: “Gov. Jay Inslee: You bet we're still going to take Syrian refugees. Idaho Gov. Otter: Nope.

Thank you Rachel, for offering someone else's time and money to someone who does not deserve it. How many Syrians are you going to sponsor? Any? Are you going to pay for their food, clothing, education, housing? Anything?
Doing the "right thing" should mean vetting the potential terrorist and protecting the lives and property of Americans above all others. Why is it that when a left wing idiot "does the right thing" is always involves refusing to accept responsibility or fully fund the problem they are attempting to solve?

It is not surprising to see a socialist willing giving the sweat from another persons brow.

Thank you, Mr. Inslee, and I salute you. The Syrians fleeing ISIS have known more horror and have suffered at ISIS's hands more than we ever will. The least we can do is give them some refuge. Thank you for keeping a clear head, doing the right thing and not being cowed by the xenophobia that seems to have gripped so many others. Yours is the sort of America I take pride in.

Re: “As Obama rejects pipeline, report predicts more oil trains in the Northwest

The Federal Railroad Administration lets railroads inspect themselves. the FRA only reviews 1 out of 100 inspections. New York State and the FRA inspected of 213 miles of track traversed by oil trains. The 4 critical defects must be fixed immediately, thirty days are allowed for the 70 non-critical ones. This shows the value of another set of eyes. The railroads or the FRA should be inspecting more often. If they were certain to have to pay the full cost for derailments, they would inspect more.
It is not clear how much the railroads spend on inspection and fixing the defects. The DOT has estimated that oil train derailments would average $200 million per year for the next 20 years. Are the railroads spending anywhere near that? That's doubtful in light of the New York results, where the white glove came out decidedly grimy.
Let the FRA know that you want more and better inspecting along oil train routes. Rather than focus so hard on what happens after a derailment - Will the crude be spilled? - Will the spilled crude ignite? - Will the 1st responders be able to handle it all? - beef up the inspections and keep the cars on the track.

Re: “Gov. Jay Inslee: You bet we're still going to take Syrian refugees. Idaho Gov. Otter: Nope.

The governor of our state is a tragic idiot. There is no such thing as "vetting" for an immigrant from a country like Syria or Afghanistan and these people should be staying in their country and fighting for their "freedom" or whatever it is that motivates a muslim to war on his neighbors.

The typical "refugee" is a military aged male with no intention whatsoever of conforming with American values. These people have no intention of finding jobs or integrating into our society in any way, shape or form. Their religious leaders constantly demand we abandon our holidays and traditions and that we force educate our children into their religion and somehow that is acceptable to democrats.

I'd expect a man like Inslee, who is proud to fight for the rights of child molesters, rapists and murderers to work to bring terrorism and misery to Washington state.

They can't do background checks on the immigrants, all they can do is ask them questions. If the immigrants lie, they will probably get in. Jay Inslee has no common sense or concern for the citizens he is supposed to serve.

Re: “How Breaking Bad redeemed its worst mistakes

Breaking Bad is about power or lack thereof. Walt at the beginning has a wife who rules over him, a boss at his second job who makes him stay extra hours on his hands and knees cleaning car wheels and a brother in law who basically rubs it in his face. On top of all that he is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Letting Jane die is about taking the power she has over Jessie and him back. The plane crash is the price of power.

Re: “Gov. Jay Inslee: You bet we're still going to take Syrian refugees. Idaho Gov. Otter: Nope.

Lets talk about what hate really is.

Three of the current issues flooding everyone's newsfeed are the Starbucks cups, LDS Church Policy, and the attacks on Paris.

The cup issue is a waste of time— the majority of every group of people could care less about a cup. Not hate—just a stupid cup.

LDS Church Policy regarding same-sex couples and children. These are the standards of a religious institution for its members to uphold. It only applies to people who want to be members of the LDS church. Like any organization or institution there are requirements that must be met to be a part of it. The NBA won't accept high-school athletes, the NRA doesn't include SuperSoaker enthusiasts, and a University would certainly never accept a high-school drop-out for enrollment or any other student that falls below the standards for acceptance. Do any of these institutions hate the people they exclude? No. Not hate— only standards for membership.

The attacks on Paris are hate! When a loathsome group of people premeditates on how to best harm or kill innocent people and then carries out their wretched plans of extreme hostility— this is the very definition of hate. Oh course this group believes they are justified by their atrocities, stating that its retaliation for the French bombing Syria; which was right to do so. It is the responsibility of the good in this world to fight against the evil and the wicked. When a group devotes their lives, their children's lives, and their every thought to causing violence, terror, and destruction— that is evil. Here is hate in its purest form.

Lets all take perspective on this and not waste our thoughts, time, and energy being offended by something that is not offensive. Disagreement is not hate. We all have our own perspectives on life. BUT when that disagreement leads to attacks, violence, and exclusion from not an a specific institution but from all ways of life— that is hate.

Cups = stupid
LDS Church Policy = membership standards
Paris Attacks = hate

A friend had this on her site tonight. WE NEED TO STOP THIS. We have several different ethnic groups that have sought refuge.
Unfortunately they bring with them more issues. Crime, taking away benefits for citizens already here who are native.
We need to fix our land before fixing others.
Stop already. I'm done.
