Re: “Alleged sexual harassment, public records and Mayor Condon’s re-election

Looks like the "curse" is making a comeback. Hopefully he gets pulled out of office for this...

Re: “Catcher on the Cracks

And people are surprised ?

The schools are more concerned about $ than education. If they can keep the losers in school by any means they get funding for those students and they will milk the cow for as long as they can.

Loser High's are money makers for school districts and a boondoggle to create $$$$$ teacher and administrator jobs.

Re: “Sound and Fury

We just had nothing short of a hurricane. I'm 60 years old, and have lived in Washington since I was ten, and have never seen a storm this bad. If we don't get real about accepting climate change as a cold hard fact, the resulting catastrophes are going to devastate our economy. Those politicians, mainly Republicans, who deny climate change because their corporate lords and masters, the big oil companies are paying them to, need to go.

As one girl polled by the Inlander put it, "Our system is so out of touch with the needs of the people, it's juvenile"...I couldn't agree more.

Re: “Love Thy Neighbors

Now that Tim Eyeman's initiative looks like it will blow a big hole in the State Budget, we are worrying again about cuts in education. How about before we do that, we quit bringing in immigrants with no skills other than having babies and putting them on the public dole. Everywhere you go shopping, you see the grocery lines full of these people, paying with their EBT cards. And they get housing and everything else paid too. Let's take care of our own, we really suck at that..

Re: “Alleged sexual harassment, public records and Mayor Condon’s re-election

The implication here points to the chief complaint against Condon: he is in bed with developers to the detriment of the people of Spokane, and has no compunction about lying to cover conflicts of interest. The fact that he knew about this situation before the election - but covered it up until after he won re-election - shows that his self-interest is far greater than his commitment to his constituents. Had this information come to light during the campaign, we the people would have had more proof that Condon talks a good game, but his integrity is suspect. This information, next to all the other shady dealings since he has come into office, would have ended his career in Spokane and rightly so. This may not be election fraud; but it certainly flirts with it, grabs it by the ass, and tries to kiss it.

Recall? Absolutely.

Re: “'Ain't No Soup Kitchen'

In September, I brought a sizable box of plums from our trees down to the back door of the mission. I asked if they could use fresh plums and Chef Mobley personally came out, said: "Hot dog! Plum pudding tonight!!!" Needless to say, that brought a huge smile to my face. What an outstanding professional this fellow is.

Re: “It's About Decency

Here's the thing "spokoresident" it's NOT about stiffing your precious free speech. WE are not moderating your behavior for you. We are not controlling what you say and how you say it. We are asking YOU to control yourself. We are asking YOU to examine problematic behavior and prevent it from hurting anyone else. You might want to fully understand all views on the movement instead of just your own anti-social justice one. You may also want to research what the actual goals of social justice are barbecue it's not to condemn or blame, it's to FIX the condemnation and blame that is placed upon the incorrect receivers.

"black on black violence" you scream as if white people still don't contribute largely to black murders. Any credit that point might have had is reallyjsut destroyed by the fact that all you're saying is "ALLA lives matter" in response to Black lives matter. OF COURSE ALL LIVES MATTER but we are focusing on the police brutality that happens to not only black people but to almsot all people of color in the united states. Sorry that you feel excluded but right now we're not focusing on priveleged white people.

And see, that's where your entire argument is negated, the fact that you refuse to see and accept that you and other white people have privilege.

It's pretty obvious that both sides have an agenda, I assumed we were both conversing under that assumption, but I apologize since it seems you have a hard time letting go of your objectivity.
If you knew anything about politics you could see that conservative's policies are pretty blatantly classist, xenophobic, sexist, and

Are you honestly serious? You're actually going to sit there and scream "boo hoo! undocumented immigrants" as if they actually pose some form of a threat?

Here's the thing: police officers are there to SERVE and PROTECT. Michael Brown was an AMERICAN with RIGHTS (as you're so fond of) so even if he had committed a crime (as white people do literally every day in the same manner) do you really, in all honesty, think that SHOOTING TO KILL is an appropriate response to a teenager robbing a gas station? (hint: it's fucking not)

In this country black CHILDREN are shot for less than white criminals of higher calibers; then those same white people are treated with more respect and dignity in our judicial system and that is a FACT.

You just proved to me that you really have not bothered to learn anything about the left. Take Bernie Sanders for instance: he supports individual gun rights but advocates for harsher gun control laws and a more rigorous process for attaining a weapon (i.e. guns shouldn't be sold at wal-mart.)
The left HAS been pushing for stricter gun control laws and if you have selectivity removed yourself from absorbing that information than you are a straight up fool.

Instead of sticking to your white washed selective exposure to reality maybe you should gain some real world experience and look at the bigger picture instead? Just a thought.

Re: “Extraordinary Ordination

I do not understand why you would continue to call yourself something that you are it. This faith based group has taken what they believe are the essential parts of Catholicism " Cafeteria style Catholics". You pick and choose the parts of the Catholic religion that suit you and your members. I think it is commendable what your at trying to accomplish, I would understand it better if you did not call yourselves Catholic because truly you are not. I will pray for you

Re: “No One is Safe

Hello everyone. There is a new way of making cash, although it is illegal but also a smart and easy way of living big, My name natasha and i just want to share my experience with everyone. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking guy called lucia. she is really good at what she is doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for random money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions. Hoping and praying it was not a scam. One week later i received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $3000. This was unbelievable and the happiest day of my life. So far i have being able to withdraw up to $28000 without any stress of being caught. I don't know why i am posting this here, i just felt this might help those of us in need of financial stability. blank Atm has really change my life. If you want to contact them, Here is the email address [email protected] OR Call +2348104244364. And I believe they will also Change your Life.

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: “The Panderlympics

WOW - I picked up my first Inlander while awaiting a take-n-bake pizza - WOW. The talent, the insight, the forethought, the research and that obvious intuitive way that Mr Herold is able to distort fact into fiction is rivaled by only a few.

"Health Care" (aka known as "Obama Care before it began to crater) - apparently Mr Herold has a very limited circle of friends as everyone I know personally has been distraught with both the premiums AND the high deductibles. The only ones who praise the plans merits are those who have no or little premiums or deductibles. They had that before the plan as well - little change for them. "Affordable." "You can keep your doctor." "Your premiums will go down." Obama owns these words, but just as Mr Herold's words they mean little, as they're also based in hyperbole.

"The Middle East" I don't ever recall anyone stating that Iraq was peaceful. It was to use the words of POTUS "contained" - that is until our troops were withdrawn. So now a few years later, we're recommitting troops to get back what was purchased with so much blood. ISIS grows stronger by the day and saying that the policies of this administration (which includes the gifted Statesperson Ms Clinton) hasn't emboldened them is well, not true. Just because little George started the fire, doesn't mean that Barry and BroomHilda get a pass for throwing gas on the embers.

"Immigration" 3 lines, 3 lines is all that could be conjured up? I guess the attacks in Paris caused some of the little grey cells in the cranium to go this way and that negating any intelligent or meaningful prose. Well ask the employees of the Disney Parks just how they liked training their lower paid foreign replacements. Or even better, ask yourself if you could move into a different locale and get free housing, money and medical would you not do the same? Heck, even the people who were born here and work don't get all those benefits! Barry, that will be just one small part of a failed legacy.

"Climate change" Not that many years ago it was called "Global Warming" - when that didn't work out as planned a new moniker had to be created. Now, as it turns out facts are getting in the way of the fiction that used to be "facts". Earlier this year NOAA was caught with its wind socks around its ankles......again. It appears they're prone to fudge the numbers in order to keep their funding from drying up - WOW, am I ever surprised!

It's too bad there's no place to reply to this drivel other than a comment section online. To have a diolgue rather than a biased and less than truthful column might actually be something new for the readers of the Inlander.
