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.

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.

Re: “Transparent Motives

For an article about transparency there was remarkably little that is specific to transperency, which is odd. Really, it is laughable that Hillary can be considered anything but secretive unless in maybe in a relative sense. But this Herold guy is delusional both of his analysis on the candidates secrecy. In terms of a public life Trump has been a national figure for far longer than Clinton and so by this measure Trump ought to win in this calculation. Is Herold going to be supporting Trump soon? We shall see. So the screed starts out with a hell of a thesis to make and so after stating the thesis and supporting it with lies what does the heart of this darkness hold for the reader? Two terrible literary references that aren't about transperency except for maybe in a weak and veiled way. I am a huge fan of Orwell but not so familiar with Lewis Carrol. I have not read through the looking glass but I have read the poem of his called Jabberwocky, which is what I think is going on here. I am accusing this fellow of committing jabberwocky. Jabberwocky, you see, is a poem about nothing. It is the mockery of style without meaning and I am thinking here that the reference dear Harold has mobilized is one that has committed a similar sin. I can seen thinly what Herold is saying. I think he is saying that Humpty Dumpty is Trump and Trump is wanting it his way by having words mean what he thinks they should mean in certain context and mean other things in other context. Certainly that is the insinuation, but I rather think that Carrol is making a point about language and meaning that is far deeper. Humpty Dumpty wants to control the message. When he says something he means it in a certain way even though the audience is at liberty to play with the meaning themselves--the Author is Dead after all--and so they are "master" of none. And here I am going to spin this on it s head. I would say that humpy dumpty is far more like Hillary. She talks to the people of this country in a way that is to be understood. She wishes to do what she can't and control the way that we, the people, hear what she says. Ironically, the habit of Trump, which is being slandered by this mis-appropriation is to understand this aspect of meaning. By far he has shown himself to have a master political wit in comparison to the bumbling fools that have stocked both parties for a generation. He speaks to what people wish to hear, he says that which will bring the sentiment fourth without really ever being specific; Bill Clinton is also a master of this. And that is too his advantage. And it is not true that Trump remains behind in the polls except for in Nate Silver's fantasies. He might want to snap out of it because being soooo wrong may look poorly on his career as an analyst; though, you would think it looked poorly enough already. I really don't care who wins. Either choice will be misery for us but I tend to enjoy someone by the enemies they make and Trump has bothed raised the ire and humiliated the neo-con movement of the last several decades. A movement that has lead to disastrous and hubristic foreign policy decisions that have bled this country of 5 trillion dollars over the years. George HW Bush himself is voting for Hillary, the Kochs support Hillary, all the evil dictatorships and American vassals support Hillary, the defense industry supports hillary, the producers of all those awful movies support hillary, basically all the wrong people. The only true dissent left is to dis-engage and defy, if you ask me; to not vote, to lower the turnout, to discredit the democracy that has clasped the chains around the wrist of humanity. Admit it, the constiution has failed, it has either authorized the government that we have or failed to prevent it and in either case is unfit to exist.

Re: “Trump vs. Jesus

Your dad should vote for President Obama as a write-in. He can look at it as a political Hipoccratic oath: Do no harm. He avoids voting for candidates with whom he disagrees, and there's no chance that President Obama can be reelected. Win-win.

Yeah, it was a "vast right wing conspiracy" that perpetrated the Monica Lewinsky hoax. Who claimed it was a "vast right wing conspiracy'?

Bitter-clingers like Herold still believe that HRC is trustworthy.

Nope. They aren't voting for either.

Let me put it in Obama terms: "Let me be clear: They reject this false choice."

Hillary is so transparent that the overwhelming majority of Americans see right through her. That explains why they think she isn't honest or trustworthy.

Re: “OK, Hold Your Nose

The saddest statement of our local political culture is that it took 3 people to write this crap. As I had suspected all observations about Trump were snarks and all the observations about Clinton are attempts to not reveal the evil nature of her character and past. Just pathetic! Do you journalists--a thoroughly defamed profession--really think you have accomplished your aims by putting out this crap? People despise the profession of journalism--after it collectively helped lie the American people into a 5 trillion dollar debacle. If journalists say they like something the public will dislike it and vice versa. A journalist lying can be counted on to be the fact in almost every circumstance these days and it is only their hubris that will make them think that sharing their wretched opinions will sway the public in any manner that is not contrary in nature. lol

The statement about Pence controlling the foriegn and domestic policy of this country is absurd. The campaign had obviously picked the VP candidate that would bleed the fewest neo-con fascist voters. I doubt he will have any power after the election even if he plans to be the next DIck Cheney. Pence is not that diabolical and Trump is not nearly the dupe that dubya was..

Re: “Base of Support

A public institution football coach has no business endorsing political candidates and it's wrong for the Inlander to request his opinion. Mike Leach was hired to coach football, not to use his highly paid position to influence hundreds of young college students. In fact, the whole Base of Support section was confirmation that neither Republicans or Democrats are going to cross party lines, nor really look at the candidates qualifications to lead our country. What scares me is that in all the conversations about issues, science and the environment is missing. As voters, we need to consider both candidate's stance on climate change, the EPA's role in regulation, air and water quality for future generations, and who they will appoint to enforce our country's environmental laws. Keep this in mind when you vote and also keep in mind Leach needs to control his recruits, not pontificate on what makes America great. John Roskelley

Re: “The Messenger

If you actually read the Southern Poverty Law Center's "report" you'll find the disclaimer that the survey it is based upon is "not scientific" (their wording) because the respondents were not chosen at random.

Furthermore, "Teaching Tolerance," the wing of the SPLC that created the survey, states clearly in the "report" that it reaches "more than 400,000 teachers a month," and yet the entire report was built on results from only 2,000 anonymous responses.

Either 398,000 teachers ignored the email survey or the SPLC cherry-picked 2,000 reliable people who would give the "right" answers.

The whole point of the SPLC promoting a "survey" that even they admit is flawed is that it allows them to agitate their mostly elderly, mostly Progressive donor base while skirting the strict IRS rules that prohibit 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations from endorsing or denouncing candidates running for office.

Once again, another SPLC "report" turns out to be a marketing ploy.
