Re: “Envision This!

This Bill of Rights is cruelly inadequate. Every worker also deserves a tiara and a pony at their employer's expense.

Re: “For Your Consideration

Get both of Isbel's albums. And if you don't listen to the Drive by Truckers, what the hell's wrong with you? Buy some of them, too.

Re: “Who Do You Trust?

Democrats fought to keep slavery.
Democrats got us into WWI.
Democrats got us into WWII.
Democrats got us involved in the Korean war.
Democrats got us in Vietnam and killed 53,000 Americans.
Democrats, including John Kerry and Hillary Clinton supported, encouraged and voted to support the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

When the democrats kill American service, leave hostages to rot in Iran or leave our borders open to foreign invaders they like to blame republicans for their failures. The fact is that their policies are policies of failure. The democrats want to destroy America as badly as the people running Iran. Nothing on earth hates like the "religion of peace" or is as intolerant as the "party of tolerance".

Re: “The Trumpenstein Monster

I think trump has seen an opportunity in thus election, and is perfectly positioning himself to great advantage. Since he is self financing, he can stay in right up to the election, after most of the field has dropped out after their diners see the writing on the wall and cut their losses. If we end up at the convention with two potential winners, ans trump as #3 with just enough delegates locked up to keep either of the others from winning, he can demand anything he wants, to throw his votes to one side or the other.

Re: “Who Do You Trust?

Robert Herold trusts Ayatollah Khamenei more than Republicans. That really says something about Herold.

Re: “Spokane Style

Great article, including the coverage on Ken Brooks. Mr. Brooks' appreciation for the larger context of architecture - including his ideas on improving Spokane's relationship with the river is something few are aware of. Bill Youngs' excellent book "The Fair and the Falls" provides a great quote from Brooks, showing just how far ahead of his time he was: “Look, if you’re going to do something for the City of Spokane, reclaim that river. Get the pollution out of it; get it back to its original state if possible. And it should be the feature of our city.” Were he alive today, am sure Ken would be pleased at our City's progress - and would urge us to keep at it.

Re: “Barred from Help

Not enough money for psychiatrists in the DSHS system. It's impossible to get evaluations done on time or accept patients for admission if there are not enough doctors to see them.

Re: “Spokane Style

I'm a huge fan of Spokane, so please don't take this wrong. I just get so frustrated because it could be so much better. It could be the most awesome city in the Northwest. But there are crappy decisions that bring it down. Like those cheap planters in the opera house. It's beautiful building, but that cheap blue planter brings the whole place down to a meh level.

Re: “Idaho's helmet-free motorcyclists aren't safer, but are part of a growing trend

It is hard to imagine that a "writer" could / would publish something this stupid! 1) Both riders were drunk, 2) neither motorcycle had lights and they were riding at night, 3) both were racing at high speeds while drunk, 4) the helmets that "could" have stopped his head injury is speculative, 5) The CDC says that of the 4,502 MC deaths, 12% were not wearing helmets. That means that 88% of the dead WERE wearing helmets! 6) Many states have repealed their helmet laws because more and more studies are finding that helmet law states have MORE fatalities than non-helmet law states. Good grief, is there no end to the stupidity of people like this that obviously has never been on a motorcycle or to a common sense class? SMH

Re: “Beware, Be Ready

Dear Miss McKay, Thanks for your "Beware, be Ready" article in The Inlander.

The last time I thought about such matters was when I had an additional duty as a disaster preparedness NCO, shortly before my retirement from the USAF in 1986.

Versed on nuclear, chemical, and biological warfare, I settled in Spokane, after retiring, despite having no nearby relatives, here, because my research gave me to believe that this area was less disaster prone than almost anywhere else I could settle us.

Not that I kidded myself that the risk was zero, but I was playing the percentages.

Of course, much of your guidance is sound and what I've long been familiar with it. At age 71, though, I suspect that my next disaster will be more certain, more singular, and unavoidable. I'll just have to be brave at my moment of extremity.

Republicans hastened the rise of Hitler. Huh?

I know you have tenure and don't care anymore but this is nonsense.

Re: “Rushing's Rant

"Whocares" what political party started the KKK 150 years ago??? It was a bunch of white, segregationist, racists idiots that did and many of them were small town mayors, police chiefs and public officials... kinda like the one in Airway Heights making these public statements to call a black man a "monkey", "coon" or any other racist derogatory term.

Re: “Who Do You Trust?

I love this. Notice how he misses the whole Soviet Union part of the Cold War. Who was right on that one? It sure wasn't the McGovern, Carter or Mondale wing of the party.

Kind of a big thing to leave out. I bet those Gonzaga students feel a bit cheated when they take a class from this guy and he leaves out the most important things.

Re: “Just Say No

Drunks are their own form of misery. I'm sure you feel the drunk driver who killed my dad had every right to enjoy his drug of choice and murder as he pleased. It took three convictions over 25 years for killing people while driving drunk to keep him in prison until he died. Meanwhile he caused dozens of accidents and injured a dozen people, inflicting misery with no remorse and because of people( like you)who support druggies, he felt no guilt for his actions.

1 in 10 adults between 20-54 are killed in alcohol related incidents according to the CDC. 88,000 needless deaths per year and $225 BILLION dollars in costs to the economy.

http://www.cdc.gov/features/alcohol-deaths/

Being a druggie is nothing to be proud of or celebrate. The problem is not prohibition, the problem is that losers in this country consume drugs at a pace far ahead of the rest of the world and that dozens of nations suffer as criminal cartels drive them to ruin in their quest to supply you and your doper friends.
