Re: “I-1366: Just Say 'No!'

Sorry "whocares", care to provide any legitimate sources on your statements? About the quality of education since the 70's, or even the "dismembering of baby parts"? Everything in your post was, put politely, pulled out of O'reillys asshole.

Re: “Swap Holidays

Oh God, here we go again with this garbage. Here is a mystery. Why can't "indigenous peoples" make their own holiday?

Why blame Christopher Columbus for something Pope approved? Why not ban Christmas instead? If you blame Chris for the bad things that the following 15 generations of people did, then you should also give him credit for their accomplishments.

In reality, Christopher Columbus brought you the computer, , the internet, newspapers, TV, video games, cars, trains, wagons, the wheel, horses, plows, cattle ranching, kerosene lights, wood stoves, iron tools, steel, everything electric ever used, paved roads, cancer treatments, a cure for polio, bridges, sky scrapers, the Panama Canal, airplanes, space travel, you name it, if it was invented in the western hemisphere, it was all Chris Columbus who made it happen.

Before you start worrying about the "estimated" deaths caused in the western world by European settlement, think about the hundreds of millions of people killed in the last 150 years by communism and socialism. Yet Seattle has "Mayday" parades and riots every year to celebrate the worst mass murderers of the 20th century and the Inlander gladly supports that "holiday".

It is okay to skip this holiday if you hate Columbus. I skip Mayday because I respect the millions killed by Karl Marx.

Re: “Worked Up

Seattle was far more "prosperous" than Seattle long before communists started moaning for $15-$24 per hour minimum wages for dope smokers. Communism has rewarded no working man or woman with economic prosperity in it's history. The idea that somehow people can improve their lives if they are paid at a flat rate and denied the right to own homes, property, accumulate wealth, inherit wealth from their families or own their own businesses is utterly laughable.

The real mystery is why people buy into this ideology.

Seattle has a major deep water port, Spokane does not. Seattle has major manufacturing and skilled industrial work, Spokane has call centers for bill collectors, pot shops and Wal-Marts.

The best way to insure the economic death of Spokane is to drive every major corporation from the city limits with bizarre wage and benefit laws that make hiring and firing employees all but impossible.

I've had drunken neighbors, but none of them were billionaires who had a string of exotically beautiful wives.

Re: “Simple by the Slice

WTH does he mean that pizza is "kinda missing" in Liberty Lake? Is he unaware that River City Pizza is right on the other side of the river from him? That's some of the best pizza in Spokane, hands down, and is way better priced than this "authentic Italian" shill that he's trying to peddle. I've eaten pizza all over Italy, and there isn't a slice of it that can compare to real American style pie.

Re: “Worked Up

Interesting how Spokane is less financially prosperous than Seattle ... and read our residents trying to keep it that way.

Re: “Chief Complaint

Excellent article. I think this piece starts opening the door for more questions concerning the police guild and the senior level officers control within the Spokane Police Dept?!

Re: “KHQ doesn't understand what "Common Core" math is

A trite, lazy piece. If the point of the article is to be condescending, nailed it. Also, if Dan Walters wants to school readers on contractions (clearly he's an expert as I've never seen so many contractions used in a "professional" piece), he might want to read his article out loud before publishing to avoid unintended errors. Hint: there's a big difference between "that" and "than."

Re: “Meet your barista: Promise Boutelle at Caffé Affogato

I love it when you enter a coffee shop and the baristas welcome you with very friendly attitudes and smiles in comparison to when you enter and have to help yourself in almost everything. This is one of the things I look for in a good cafe or coffee shop.

Re: “Rideshare Rumble

It's cool to see these companies expand into Eastern Washington, this is really a testimony to how large ridesharing has become nationally. There is controversy in literally every market that Uber and Lyft enter, but these companies have gotten so large that they are nearly unstoppable. I have created quite a few resources to cover news and tools for Lyft and Uber drivers, check them out at

Re: “Worked Up

Lots of people losing jobs will be the result. Remember nobody is responsible for your work payment but you. Even the unions are failing because of demands for raises. Seattle has a bustling economy. Spokane doesn't.....and likely won't with this short sighted thinking. If you don't make enough money such that you hve to go get a 2nd job, you might be thinking of getting a different first job. Nobody has a right to other people's money. Nobody.
Another failure coming up..either through the voters or from the courts.

Re: “Trouble at Ft. Hood

Where is this going to STOP? Ok, PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury AREN"T necessarily the CORE issues here. I know that sounds strange, and I don't mean to be disrespectful. My disabled spouse husband, a brother-in-law, me and most possibly one of our nephews (he just got diagnosed with Gulf War Syndrome and TBI can be a symptom of that)
ALL have PTSD/TBI , and although it never goes away, and there is no cure, there ARE different therapies and other tools you can employ (my husband is missing a large part of his frontal lobe) , for example utilizing a service dog,
that help you live beyond the damage into a more functional life. Tragically, the symptoms, to a greater or lesser degree always remain. BUT what happened here with this former Maj Hasan has just ripped out the "stitches" on the mental wounds these guys had plus cutting deeper even more. It's beyond horrendous, and as bad as a full blown military assault on that base, as causalities have fallen. I need to stop now, because I'm angry and am becoming very bitter about all of this. I do not want to sound like a bigot , but foreign nationals whose counties we are currently fighting , I feel, should not allow to join our armed forces , especially not officer rank or positions as sensitive as what Hasan did. God bless those troops on that base, the wounded, killed and their families. God bless America....

Re: “Municipal workers endorse Lichty in Spokane mayoral race

The primary goal of the mayor has always been to steal as much from his employees as possible, to cheat them out of as much of their earned benefits as humanly possible and to curse his employees as thieves every time he pops onto 920am to chat. Unless of course you are one of his hired minions, then you are paid like royalty regardless of qualifications.

City of Spokane employees have been funding their pension system( since it's inception) thru contributions of about 9% of their earnings, the city contributes slightly less towards the system. Unlike most cities, the pension is not an "unfunded liability". It is however a treasure chest waiting to be looted by elected officials, this mayor, like most previous mayor's dreams of replacing the millions of actual dollars with millions of dollars in junk bonds and promissory notes.

Local 270 employees pay a decent portion of their healthcare, fund their pensions and pay most of their own 457K. City employees have gone FIVE years without a cost of living raise and the mayor still thinks they make too much money and need to be sent deeper into poverty for the privilege of serving the citizens of Spokane. What you are seeing is the utter disrespect this man has for working men and women in Spokane. No raise for half a decade and he still wants to cut your wages and benefits. Really?

What exactly is "compensation more in line with the private sector"? Any ideas? Truth be told, most city jobs pay less than "private sector" jobs with similar qualifications. Employment with the city wins because it is relatively free from lay-offs and slow downs and the benefits are decent. If you want to raise a family, it is an okay place to work, with the exception of having to work for a mayor who has no respect for you.

We have a two-pronged attack on working residents in Spokane. You have the "envision" crowd, working to rob you blind, cripple you with high taxes and force you to pay the freight for the lazy dregs that they are courting for the next election. And from the right you have our beloved mayor, cursing his own employees, demanding they work for poverty wages for the benefit of his millionaire friends on the South Hill. If your neighbors did not leave you a spare million bucks, he only wants to see you when you empty the trash or serve his food.

City of Spokane employees deliver safe drinking water, wastewater treatment, refuse collection, police and fire protection and administer every function of a major city with few problems, no scandals, no crimes and very few complaints, twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year. And yet the mayor thinks they are overpaid thieves of tax dollars.

The question you should ask yourself when your ballot arrives is, why? Why vote for a man who wants to lower everyone's wages, destroy their retirements and decrease their benefits? He is not just after his own employees, he is working on behalf of any business that feels they have the right to pay slave wages to their employees. You never hear this man talk about improving the quality of life of the average person in Spokane, NEVER.

Why not vote for someone who wants to improve the quality of life for the working residents of the City of Spokane. YOUR, Quality of life never improves with Wal-Mart wages for working residents, lousy streets and higher take home pay for the South Hill elite. Their streets look pretty pot hole free when compared to anywhere else in town.

Re: “Worked Up

Is the Worker's Bill of Rights a good idea? Who knows.

Putting extra dollars into worker's pockets in whatever form, has proven to be beneficial to the economy.

The Chamber of Commerce continues to sell the idea that 'creating jobs' occurs when businesses keep their costs and expenses to a minimum. Since WWII, as any business major who has taken Econ 101 can tell you, it's been proven that jobs are created when there is consumer demand. That means consumers who have money to spend. From an economic standpoint, nearly 100% of the increased wages minimum wagers earn returns to the economy, in the form of increased spending and tax revenue. Huge tax cuts for the top 1%, on the other hand, return less than 40% to the local economy.

While the WBoR may or may not be a good idea, it's ideals certainly are.

Re: “Fall Out Boys

The fact that Straub was drawing criticism from multiple sources suggests that Condon's decision to fire Straub was the right decision. Condon's critics may have a hard time persuading voters that Condon should not be reelected for making the right decision on Straub. And what choice do voters have? According to the caption under Ms. Lichty's picture, her credentials consist of six years as a "progressive political organizer." That pedigree doesn't qualify her to be city dogcatcher, and certainly not Mayor.

Re: “This morning's top headlines

Looking at just the last decade, the records show that from FY 2002 to FY 2004 prosecutions jumped from 7,948 to 11,015, up by more than a third (38.6%). From the 2004 high, however, prosecutions declined to 7,465 in FY 2011, down by 32.2 percent. Then, in just the last year, prosecutions increased up to 7,774, or 4.1 percent higher than in the previous year.

According to the Idiot-in-Chief, we have a problem with firearms. According to HIS Justice Department, we have no problems since prosecutions are nearly record lows. About 7,500 federal firearms crimes are prosecuted annually.

According to most communist or socialist news outlets, 100,000 people are injured with firearms every year. That means at least 50,000 people are eligible for a federal firearms crime. 85% of these people do not get a second look by Obama and his Justice Department.

1.300.000 violent crimes, many with firearms, 152,000 armed robberies with firearms, 24,000 murders and assaults about 50% with guns and still they managed to prosecute ONLY 7,500 people.

The real problem with mass shootings is that they are typically some form of deranged leftist, filled with hate from listening to MSNBC and Obama and they snap. When this happens, they cannot blame themselves, socialists blame guns for their misdeeds.

Next week the Inlander will be running a story. It will ignore the racist and religious hate of this young man and blame guns for his crimes. It will yet again mock the victims of another criminal and ignore the fact this was a hate crime.
