Re: “Reverse the Polarity

Uh George, your party has to get out of it´s own way in order to have the nation take you´uns seriously! Imagine a state who nominates PAT ROBERTSON as it´s presidential nomination in 1982! The Grumpy OLD Party has never let me down as far as backward thinking and your ´care for your rich.
Why did you avoid Military service? Too much like Ted Nugent or just a woose? You nor your party has ever helped a 100%, Service Connected Disabled Military Veteran. Our COLA´s are the same as welfare reciepients (sp) and our VA "care" is worse than most state standards.
Please address this in your next rant.

Re: “An even harder beer to find in Spokane

Years ago (1972), I visited my uncle in Bloomington Minnesota, prior to my deployment in Korea. The poor guy thought he was doing me a great favor when he produced an 8oz. can of Olympia beer (YUCK!!!!) Fortunately, he read my face and gave me bottles of Leinenkugel and made my visit sublime!
As a then wet sider, We took the Princess Margarette steamship to Victoria B.C. and enjoyed Canadian micro brews, hard ciders and especially Ginger beers which pack a great bite!
The Beer Beauty of the Pacific N.W. is immense and I plan local vacations to include brew pubs in both countries. Unfortunately, finding a Canadian micro brew, hard cider and ginger beer is harder than finding hen´s teeth.
The ciders (apple, pear, peach and berry ciders) as well as strong ginger beer can be found in larger Provincial liquor shops.
Good drinking!

Re: “Into the Breach

The extent of my combat service was on the South Korean DMZ in 1972-73. Due to the increased violence in Korea, Vietnam and the Gulf States, I would and do resent women in combat service.
American men are born into nurturing women and the injury or death of a sister is bad enough to comprehend, least the capture and torture of the fair sex. This fact alone could render troops mentally disabled and compromise their combat effectiveness.
Bonds between Soldiers and Marines are quite strong. It is bad enough to lose a brother soldier in combat - least of all risk a woman´s life or her capture by enemy forces.
General officers make the rules. They deal in numbers of casualties, not the disposition of their troop´s morale in battle.

Re: “Freedom of Speech

Jim French was in over his head during the River Park Square fiasco - Spokane citizens footed the bill for the city´s and Spokesman-Review´s folly. Unfortunately, Voters have forgotten the mess that the aforementioned parties created.
Now Jim French affixes his name against another questionable land use problem. Hasn´t French learned from his past mistakes? The voting public is no better in listening to his absurd views.
The last Fairchild air disaster involved pilot error with a B-52 over a decade ago. Air Force flight patterns put eastern and western properties in danger but not to the extent as north - south homes or property, though helicoptors (sp) use these airways without incident.. As a North Central Spokane resident, I feel more insecure living under the landing path of commercial jets than military jets as military avionics far surpasses that employed by civilian carriers.
Once again, Mr. French shows his aloofness toward Native American enterprises which could better Spokane County, create tribal competition for the best casino complexes and disregards the Tribal Rights of First Americans.
Jim French is nothing more than a 2 bit realtor.

Re: “Debt Trap

Me thinks Muddog has ties to payday loan companies or is a trustee for an envious "banking institution", possibly the old Washington Mutual ´bank´. The fact that Muddog has to use slurs in his rant is an obvious turn-off for intelligent readers of both political persuasions.
Muddog and his ilk bleat worse than North Korean leaders and sound like they studied at the same institutions.

Re: “If It Ain’t Brokeā€¦

Great report! The republicans arent satisfied with a super majority in congress. Now they want to take it national. Unfortunately the party fails to take into consideration certain minorities have become majorities and no matter how much jerymandering (sp) they do, they cannot change demographics or a growing resentment of "The White Armed Party".
Frank Zappa once stated on record, "I´m not black, but there are times I wish I wasn´t white". As a white man who grew up in the 1960´s and served this Country in the US Army during the Vietnam War, I can identify with this statement., I was a Repub. until 1992 when Washington State nominated "Rev." Pat Robertson for President. and only vote for Ozzy K. for sheriff.
Try as you may Republicans, you´re shedding more white people from your party than you are attracting, or as ´they´ say, you need my vote more than I need your ideas.

Disabled Veterans Decry Wrongheaded, ‘Heartless’ Budget Cuts
If Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) wanted to make a name for herself by proposing to cut funding for veterans health care and disability compensation, she has succeeded...
By: Disabled American Veterans..
Is this what the republican party coming to? All you republicans who never served your country are trying to tell We Veterans what "we deserve". How many republican ´drugstore conservatives´ ever served in the Armed Forces? You civilians have no idea what we Vets went through no do you have the courage to understand.
How repugnant you weazles are not to support we who sacrificed our minds and bodies that you may live free to renig on campaign promises!
