Re: “The Do-Over

@Way to go Spokane

Is that you Adam McDaniel the de facto manager of the YES FOR BUSES!

I believe Adam is the manager of the $140,000+ campaign to pass the awful STA $200,000,000+ measure on our Spokane ballots this November.....again (we voted this down in April 2015). Adam must be the manager, considering the $15,000+ he has charged the campaign so far for his "services".

I wonder how many dollars per word Adam charges for posting comments on the Inlander?

He certainly is not using the considerable campaign assets provided to him to fool the voters into passing the STA Measure.

One would think his working as an assistant for the infamous council president Ben Stuckart would be a conflict of interest.

Considering all the inane and downright nutters policy and acts out of the Stuckart cabal, (elephant hooks, bomb trains, bomb trains again, etc.) Adam must be doing nothing more than drawing a salary from the City of Spokane, so he can run ludicrous liberal campaigns into the ground; for cash.

@No WAY STA.....
Right on Bro!

Right on Bro!

@Eric Wiseman
You are exactly correct.

@Yes Spokane Can
Adam, is that you, again??????

Re: “Token Democracy

@Adam McDaniel

Is that Adam McDaniel form the STA YES FOR BUSES campaign?????

Don't you also draw a salary as a LA for wacko council prez, Ben "Bomb Train" Stuckart.

How's that STA YES FOR BUSES! campaign going? According to the WA Public Disclosure Commission, you have been paid a great deal of money ($15,000) so far, to run this failing campaign.

Seems like a conflict of interest huh?????

Are you going to donate excess funds from YES FOR BUSES to Stuckart like the April 28th, 2015 STA campaign did?

I'm looking forward to election night to see how many people voted down this latest reincarnation of the Central Line / Trolley $200,000,000+ boondoggle.

It's an unnecessary expenditure of $200,000,000+ and a huge expansion of government.

No way STA.

Have a good day Adam.

Say "high?" to Ben!

Re: “Annexation or death

There's a reason businesses such as Costco are moving outside of the city. Perhaps the city should consider making itself more business friendly instead of trying to chase after the companies that leave for a less business unfriendly environment.

Re: “Token Democracy

I was shocked at all the labor unions and groups who are not associated with Spokane that donated to Billing.

My goodness, who does he represent; his district or special interest???????

Apparently, it's special interest.

Billing needs to find work in the private sector. He is bought and paid for by special interest.

Gretchen, my I suggest to you and every voter in WA a simple solution when voting this November.
Vote NO or reject all Initiatives, Measures and proposals.

Do not vote for any incumbent Supreme Court Justice.

Do not vote for any democrat.

Re: “Money for President

@A little truth goes a long way

You apparently didn't read Tara's rant or bothered to check the dates on the comments of others; you're not very focused on facts or details, are you?

I thought they had blocks on The Inlander at local middle schools in Washington State.......

I am concerned about 1491 as it does not offer enough protections of the civil rights of the person who is the subject of the extreme risk protection order. 1. The petitioner who seeks the order has plenty of time to prepare for the court date. However, the respondent (often someone with mental illness) is only required to get 5 business days notice of the impending hearing. How does a person suddenly find qualified representation in 5 days? 2. It would be costly for the respondent to fight this. I see no provision in the initiative to provide legal fees to the respondent who may be indigent. 3. If the protection order is granted, the subject has to wait an entire year before s/he can again seek to have his gun rights restored. 4. There is no requirement for evaluation, treatment, or monitoring of the subject and does nothing to address the underlying issues. If the person is truly dangerous, this initiative is just putting a bandage on the problem and delaying the tragedy.

More info: “The ACLU of Washington has not taken a position on Initiative 1491.  We do not support the initiative because of the due process and other concerns outlined below.  While keeping guns out of the hands of people who pose serious risks to safety is a reasonable public safety measure, the ACLU’s role is to evaluate such measures by their impact on civil liberties, and we have concerns that the initiative has inadequate due process procedures.  Further, these deficient due process procedures could set a bad precedent for other criminal justice processes..."

Re: “Defending North Idaho

Totally agree!! We need Kate McAlister representing us. Enough of this divisive attitude from Scott being reflected on our community of good-hearted people. Kate is honest with solid integrity and she'll work hard, as she's shown she can, for us normal, peaceful folks.

Re: “How movies and TV shows boost a conspiracy-minded "rigged!" mentality

DEMOCRATS are such pompous hypocrites. It is sooooooooooo funny to watch their self righteous concerns and condemnations of Trump, while forgetting about Al Gore in 2000 who refused to accept the outcome.

Democrats are still whining about the 2000 POTUS election; despite several credible studies stating BUSH won.
Besides, the DEMOCRATS have already proven they are more than willing to gerrymander 2016 races; ask Bernie Sanders.

Remember Gregoire circa 2004? How about Al Franken circa 2008?

TRUMP is correct to hold his opinion about the election, before the election.

DEMOCRATS, especially this current batch of them, have proven they are not to be trusted.

Re: “Shea's World

"Former Spokane Valley Mayor Diana Wilhite, who ran unsuccessfully for a seat as a Spokane Valley representative, says she aligns with many of Shea's votes as a lawmaker. But she says Shea is one person in Olympia, and a totally different person at home. "It's like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," she says, referencing the 1886 novel by Robert Louis Stevenson.

"He goes to the Legislature and he's one person," Wilhite says. "And he comes home, and he's a totally different person.""

First off, Wilhite ran AGAINST Shea for an open seat in the WA legislature. She came in a very distant third. and is apparently still bitter. Almost as bitter as lame duck county commissioner Nancy McLaughlin; who is a good friend of Wilhite. My guess is they regularly meet for tea and complain about Matt Shea to naive Inlander reporters while eating scones at the Rockwood Bakery on Argonne.

Secondly, Nancy lost because she didn't get out and campaign effectively. She thought since she was Nancy McLaughlin after all, people would wait in line to voter FOR her.

She was half right.

Now she is pointing her finger at others to explain why she decisively lost; not realizing she has three fingers pointing back at herself.

Nancy refused to endorse fellow Republican Josh Kerns who got past the 2016 primary. Not a very Christian thingy to do.....

Now she blames Matt Shea......

Very petty Nancy.

Maybe this is why you didn't win....God knew better.

Re: “Accidents All Over

Why has Hillary super delegate and TPP apologist Senator Murray still failed to endorced Joe? She sure seems perfectly at ease featuring local tribal members in well scripted ads. Did State Dem leader Jaxon Ravens initiate some sort of police tape, "Do Not Cross" order to punish Joe for daring to introduce Bernie at rallies attended by thousands of young people as Bill Clinton struggled to fill a captive audience gym? This is why I'm done with the corruption of incumbant Dems, and the DNC as a party. There is no diversity, just retaliation and favoritism.

Re: “How movies and TV shows boost a conspiracy-minded "rigged!" mentality

Bernie Sanders and his supporters accused the DNC and then-chairman Wasserman-Schultz of conspiring to rig the primary for HRC. That was all over the news, too. When Wasserman-Schultz's hacked e-mails were publicized, turns out Bernie Sanders and his supporters were right. So why the selective outrage over Trump? Hasn't there been actual, proven rigging of the system in the Democrat primary?

Re: “Accidents All Over

Well said Sir. This year, I have reconsidered my local vote. As a mom, a taxpayer (yes, I pay my taxes) and a veteran with 20 years of active duty service, I have a unique perspective of having been a woman in the armed forces. I worked mostly with men but also women. Early in my service, there were times when sexist comments were made, on both sides, but never in that time did I hear the level of sexist, racist, unprofessional language that comes from Donald Trump. During my time in the service, respect for fellow service members and workplace professionalism improved from the education and training on such subjects as the sexual harassment prevention, diversity awareness, financial management and professional leadership. We continually progressed with the times to become a better, more professional, work force to carry out a mission. Legal standards were put in place to protect individuals and ensure efficiency of the mission. Infractions of these were dealt with swiftly and professionally. Our leadership depended on us to do our job without internal conflict, and it worked. The military and civil service civilians in the DoD is the most diverse work place on the planet. Coincidentally, it is the most diverse workplace in Spokane County. I speak from personal experience when I say that the diversity makes it stronger. Therefore, I am just baffled, baffled, that remaining Republican leaders still plan to vote for Trump. He is the opposite of an example for a Commander-in-Chief. His racist, sexists remarks and ideology have no place in the DoD chain of command. How would military training in the above areas go? Here’s your training; here’s your boss; this is what NOT to do? It makes no sense to me. ALL service members need to know that we, taxpayers, “have their back” whether it’s a marine from Iowa, a female airman in a gunner seat or a US solider born in Puerto Rico. For service members stationed in Spokane County, our home is their home. True ambassadors support all troops. I plan to “have their back” by NOT voting for Trump and will never again vote for local Republican leaders who plan on voting for him.

Re: “Accidents All Over

Will Rogers--a name Mr. Herold will recognize--once said that "Papers say: 'Congress is deadlocked and can't act.' I think that is the greatest blessing that could befall this country." He also said "[b]e thankful we're not getting all the government we're paying for."

The last thing we need is some overly confident imbecile who thinks he can cure the nation's ills, and that the remedy is more government and higher taxes.
