"We used to support each other generations ago"
So, opie, why don't you do it now? Oh, yeah, that was something for your grandparents. Besides, it's largely fiction -- most people supported people who looked like them, went to church with them, etc.
As for giving "not being the liberal way." Actually, both libs and conservatives give, though we might argue whether they give enough. If not, it's not the "conservative way," either -- except, again, in their own churches: http://articles.latimes.com/2014/mar/31/bu…
Well, it didn't take long for an overgeneralizing idiot to demonstrate the problem with far too many conservatives, and with much of this region. Dolezal -- who has received death threats, and so has less reason to be "nice" than most of us, writes a piece about folks being nice to one another and some jackass responds with a dishonest screed full of insults and inaccuracies about the poor.
Naturally "whocares" responds anonymously, as one would expect from a gutless nitwit who probably is most comfortable speaking publicly from under a white hood. And "whocares" obviously must care a lot, since s/he spent so much time providing a long, inane and irrelevant response to Dolezal's piece.
And by the way, nitwit, Dolezal clearly has a job, making your first paragraph not only moronic but a good indication that the rest of your comment is unworthy of taking the time to read. To your credit, in your case, stupidity apparently has surpassed laziness as your biggest problem.
In Idaho she'd qualify for office herself.
Neighbors screwing neighbors. I guess we can say that at least Alton puts his money where his mouth is -- and so will I, by making sure I never do business with any Alton's Tire store and by encouraging anyone with kids to also buy their tires elsewhere.
"After community outrage, horrible person returns iPad stolen from disabled man to become slightly less horrible."
Do you bother to watch the stories you link to? The thief was arrested and police found the iPad. The horrible person is no less horrible.
"So much harder to just walk away and let things be."
Hardly, Woodey. Walking away and letting things be is easy, which is why rape culture exists. And though I can't speak of the motivations of the "couple" of protestors you've "been around" (how traumatic that must have been for you), I do know that rape is hardly a laughing matter.
Pendleton's answer to a supposed supporter (who is actually smart enough to recognize why the name is a problem), after she asked why not change the drink name to something that wouldn't offend people, since he had the power to do so: "Because I also have the power to do as I please.. and if you can't respect that.. then open up your own business and run it the way you please."
So this guy hides from the press and answers even his "friends" like an average 7-year-old: "Because."
If you're hoping for reason from Pendleton, you likely will be disappointed. So those who "get it" should treat him like a 7-year-old and help to take away his toys: That is, don't frequent his bar, and make the advertisers for his radio station aware of your discontent.
In fact, since Pendleton won't talk to the Inlander, Leah, how about if you talk to his remaining advertisers about their perspective on the issue, and let your readers know where they stand? After all, they also "have the power" to do as they please with their businesses.
