Re: “What we know so far — and what we don't — about the mass shooting in Oregon

Drudge is saying that killer was a brit with black mother (but cnn or LA times referred to him as white supremicist). Is this true?

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.

Re: “What we know so far — and what we don't — about the mass shooting in Oregon

A man murdered people because of his racist and religious hatred of them and the socialists blame guns for the problem?

Strangely, they never scream to ban cars after a traffic accident. It is a person's fault, unless that person uses a gun, then is was the inanimate hunk of metal that drove him/her to kill.

SO this joint will wind up being either a first stop, or a last, since very few students I've seen stop at three of anything, except, perhaps, leaves of kale.

Re: “Worked Up

How about this one? Argument from ignorance (appeal to ignorance, argumentum ad ignorantiam) – assuming that a claim is true because it has not been or cannot be proven false, or vice versa.[14]

Where the party in question simply assumes paying $23 bucks an hour to everyone will somehow make every thing better. According to the Greeks, it does not work unless the Germans pay for it.

Circular reasoning (circulus in demonstrando) – when the reasoner begins with what he or she is trying to end up with; sometimes called assuming the conclusion.

We raise wages to $23 bucks an hour and everything gets better. Seriously, can it be more circular that that?

Every argument for Envision's ideas is a false argument based solely on socialist or communist principles that have failed in dozens of countries world wide over the last 150 years. The net result is 200,000,000 dead from wars, purges and mass executions and billions of people had to live and die in poverty.

Every single method of communication you use today was created, invented, manufactured, marketed and managed by a capitalist (for profit) company. All of your clothes, your home, car and every trinket and bauble was part of profit based commerce. Communism creates nothing of value.

Ask Zimbabwe how printing money to raise wages and driving out all of the nasty capitalists has worked so far. Every citizen of Zimbabwe has more money that Bill Gates. Many of them have trillions of Zimbabwean dollars in their bank accounts. YES, TRILLIONS that can be used to buy a $50,000,000,000,000 loaf of bread or a $125,000,000,000,000 two liter bottle of soda,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,hurray communism.

Re: “The Price of Freedom

Where EXACTLY do you think he gets his meth? The meth fairy brings it every time another tooth falls out? He has stolen from you to feed his habit, did it hurt? He has abandoned his family for drugs, did that hurt. He hurts people who are foolish enough to trust him.

On the rare occasion he tries to work, he hurts those who try and employ him, when he steals from them and goes to work stoned.

He knows exactly who robs or mugs him because he was getting high with them two minutes before they decided to steal from him. Birds of a feather, as they say, flock together.

It is the truth that hurts.

Re: “I-1366: Just Say 'No!'

The nerve of some taxpayers, to demand accountability from government and good management of their tax dollars. Accountability, intelligence and good ideas simply have no place in a socialist society. We must have blind obedience to our party masters and accolades for their perceived brilliance.

Maybe a nice "peace prize" for middle east turmoil and starting a dozen civil wars?

Re: “Worked Up

If an increased hourly wage is beneficial and has no negative consequences, why stop at $23.00 per hour? Why not raise the minimum wage to $1,000.00 per hour? Everybody will have a lifestyle that is far more comfortable than they could afford with a mere "working wage." And because everybody would have so much more discretionary income, all that spending would turbo charge the economy, wouldn't it?

Furthermore, since corporations are an impediment to the best interests of the workers and the community, why not outlaw them? For that matter, outlaw any collective business model that could allow the concentration of wealth or political influence. Oh, sure, some might argue that such laws would prevent people from obtaining useful and/or necessary goods and services like health care, automobiles, or even fresh underwear, but state, local, and federal government could provide people with what they need. And since the government isn't profit-driven, we'd all be better off.

Re: “The Wizard of Spokane

So glad they left Brian Main out to continue to scam people and try and steal their company names and ideas, if the feds had any smarts at all, they would go look up the bullshit corporations he is setting up trying to fake his way into the weed business. He is still a lying conman that should have stayed in New York and never came back. KARMA IS COMING FOR YOU SCUMBAG. Anyone that thinks Brian Main is reputable and honest business man is a fool. Maybe someone should start paying attention to what this guy is doing back in our state.

Re: “Ye Olde Government

Our three current county commissioners could speed this along by placing a home rule charter vote on the next possible election. It is too late for November 2015 unfortunately.

Commissioners should be elected by district in both the primary and the general elections, unlike now where they are elected by district in the primary, but not the general.

Prop 1 gives us no more or better representation.

Vote NO on county Proposition 1.

Re: “Ye Olde Government

Ted, I agree with you and I'm voting NO on County Prop. 1 because we can do better.

There won't be any pressure on the County Commissioners to put a home rule charter on the ballot if the commission is simply increased to five from the current three.

Let's not mix up the issue of combining city and county governmental services (that helped the most recent home rule charter proposal to fail a number of years ago).

But if we're going to incur additional costs from having two more commissioners, let's have election and representation by district (to better protect the rights of minorities and represent the urban portion of the county). A home rule charter proposal can contain that language.

County Prop. 1 doesn't have that language. It simply increases the size of the commission to five.

The status quo is broken at the county level. But County Prop. 1 isn't the way to fix it. Vote NO on County Prop. 1.

Re: “Fall Out Boys

"The same year, retired Spokane Police Officer Brian Breen lodged another complaint against Straub, also alleging that he lied to city council by exaggerating the number of domestic violence cases fielded by Spokane police."

What was the outcome of that complaint Mr. Breen?
