Re: “Nudists express concerns about bikini barista initiative

I wonder if the Islamic countries had a similar problem back in the day, regulated that a certain amount of female flesh had to be covered and it just slid into the habib wearing culture that distrusts the ability of its men not to attack a woman with lust if he can see more than their eyes? That's the trouble with morality laws: any minority can push for THEIR morals to be the ONLY valid ones, regardless how anyone else wants to live. Shame on these women for attempting to push their personal preferences onto everyone else by making it a law. Maybe I should go door to door to get the city council to broadly ratify my personal preferences by saying it only applies to some distasteful minority group. Worked for the Nazi's didn't it?

Re: “Washington fire chiefs to railroad company: We want more info on oil trains

As always it is heartening to see how first responders rise to the occasion to protect us all. if only such heroism rubbed off just a little on the railroad industry.
The first duty of government is to protect citizens, not shareholders.
The rail industry takes advantage of lax regulators, pro-business governments, frail labor unions, and our desire for oil independence to roll the dice on safety.
They run 150 ton tank cars on 8000 foot trains with skeletal crews, well dictated by the profit motive.
An alliance of railway workers, environmentalists, and blast zone citizens can force a safer method of transporting crude oil.
Begin by signing the linked petition asking the Federal Railroad Administration to enforce railroad health and safety rules.
Please sign the petition at

Re: “Those Teeth Are Sharp

Hillary will be mollycoddled by a fawning press corps and any Republican--especially the conservative ones--will be personally attacked and demagogued relentlessly. Call me an optimist, but the majority of likely voters will recognize the attempt to fix the race. Hillary is less personable than Bill, and the kid glove treatment will backfire because it will reinforce the perception that she sees herself as entitled and above the rules that lesser people must follow.

Re: “A County Ombudsman?

The important thing to remember is the City OPO...does NOT have independent investigative authority by any stretch of the imagination based on the Guild contract negotiated by Frank Straub and David Condon. They may however have audit authority allowing them to audit various aspects of the SPD...we shall see.


It is important to also keep in mind that the "body camera legislation" is a law enforcement backed bill that will prohibit public disclosure of video in most cases and also has wiretap language which if passed would allow LEOs to intercept private communications with out being a party to the communication for the first time EVER in the State of Washington. The bill also does not contain the "no other available investigative method" clause currently in RCW 9.73.


I believe the "body camera legislation" is back in rules for a second reading...there is a good likelihood the bill will not pass which will mean that SPD and the SCSO will use the AG's opinion regarding the release of video which will allow nearly all of the video to be withheld from the public as they will need to follow the exceptions to the Public Records Act.

As the Sheriff, Straub, Condon, and Mielke know full well the Citizens Commission overseeing Seattle PD has recommended Seattle PD NOT go ahead with body cameras until proper legislation is passed...something that might be unlikely at this point.


As far as the SPD is concerned it is important to understand the contract negotiated by Frank Straub with the Police Guild gives the Guild complete control of body cameras and prohibits independent investigations by the OPO.

Re: “Women's history doc, outdoor yoga and T.A.S.T.Y. tunes

Thank you for your article! I'm big fitness hopper, I used to do cross-fit and TRX but now I'm doing yoga. The great thing when you change workouts is that your body can't go into plateau, so you grow muscles and lose fat quickly. I've lost 30 pounds in two months. On this website you can find some free cool various workouts www.247fitnesswebshop.com

They tried to make Cutter a part of this quiz, but it kept kicking the quiz's ass, so they had to remove it in defeated shame.

Re: “New Blood

You know something? There's are many parts of Spokane that already look like Detroit. The economic blight Spokane now faces is the result of your conservative establishment. And don't even go there and tell me that is was a bunch of liberals and it's because of the economic downturn. This stagnation has been going on for years and was caused by the indifference of the real people in control of this town and this county! They have created a system to keep real employers from coming in here especially those who won't do things the way the Spokane "Old Boys" want them to do. They have also failed to address the problem of crime which is the result of economic decay not what some so-called liberals have done! Open your eyes for once! #changespokane

Re: “Those Teeth Are Sharp

Gee whiz Tom, we sure have a lot of news and opinion from Idaho in this week's edition. Does your paper really have to cater to Idaho so much? Your readership must almost certainly be overwhelmingly from Spokane County. I don't mind an occasional story about a music thing or some monumental story in Idaho, but it just seems like in recent months you have gone way overboard on Idaho coverage.

Re: “One man's fine line between stupid and sexy at Spokane Community College

The poster is offensive. It unwittingly suggests that bisexuality is polyamory. However, what is really offensive is that it suggests that bisexuality is specifically about sex. I find it actually a disservice to display that type of message when the bisexual community is deserving of so much more awareness, like who they are and how to change public policy that limits bisexuals. This image is cheap and undermines the cause.

Re: “Scathing report confirms what a disaster Idaho’s Schoolnet is

$61million dollars but yet the rally cry of the neo-liberals is still "schools need more money!!!" - "Support our kids, vote for the new levy!" Bulls**t. I am sick of schools getting a free pass wasting millions and billions of dollars while failing to hold themselves and their employees accountable. I am done ever again voting for to pass another levy until I see concerted evidence that schools stop flushing our hard earned tax dollars down the toilet because they know there will always be more coming. And that includes the continued codling of violent, non-performers who suck up 80% of an educators / administrators time while negatively contributing to the scholastic environment.

Re: “The Nightly Show really, really screwed up its vaccine episode

If vaccines are so safe, why are doctors and vaccine manufacturers exempt from being sued? Why does it take a parent 5 years and hiring an attorney to go to the "vaccine court" to get money to pay for the exorbitant costs of taking care of a severely handicapped child who got that way from vaccines? Why are vaccine manufacturers allowed to have secret ingredients in their products? Why are there no safety studies on vaccinating newborns and pregnant women? Why do we hear how safe vaccines are when the package inserts say otherwise? Does the end justify the means? Should everyone in this country be vaccinated at gunpoint? Do all doctors, 100% of them agree on every treatment? Why are vaccines treated like holy water? If I got a vaccine, and injected you against your will, is that OK? It's harmless, right?

Childhood illnesses were one of God's creations. We do our best to provide a good environment so our children will be healthy. If they get sick, it is wonderful to have medical treatments, and if a child dies, he died a natural death. If, on the other hand, we vaccinate a healthy child knowing that there is a risk however small and that child dies, we are guilty of murder. God did not make a mistake when he created us or disease. We make a mistake when we try to play God.

Re: “Facing History

We're not talking about cheating - or even "shabby" we're talking about turning a woman - who is ill - out in the streets and covering it up. And then touting him as a hero. Laying your claim on a piece of land and building some stuff on it - that happens to turn into a city does not a hero make - we need to look at the bodies buried under the foundations to see the whole picture. Frankly, I don't want my kids and grandkids looking up to a man like that. It makes us hypocrites. We live in a new age - we need new heroes - heroines. We need to support the standards that define us as a civilized society.
