Recently, I came out of my apartment to find the front passenger window smashed out in what I thought was a safe apartment complex in which I also pay extra for a carport. When I got in, I discovered that the criminal or criminals only took a very beloved and sentimental rosary that I have kept in my vehicles in a cubby for years. The rosary was worth way more to me personally than any monetary value.
Isn't it tragic that we as a people are more apt to call the city about potholes than to report that a friend or relative is making threats of violence? The rabid dog that took 49 lives had a wife that could've called the authorities and voiced her concerns. The authorities could have placed a hold on all purchases of semi-automatic weapons until such time as he was deemed a non-threat.
Seth Marshall's 10-point manifesto ("This Republican won't vote Trump," June 12) represents the epitome of a RINO (Republican In Name Only). He expressed a theme of ignorance to the values of most Republicans, especially constitutional conservative Republicans. Most of us want personal liberty and individual freedom along with small or smaller government (federal and state). This is accomplished with the simple promotion of the Constitution, Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights.
A shout out to fellow Bernie supporters. We have had a big disappointment, but it is not wasted effort. Many people have been moved; new ideas have been heard; thoughts are percolating that have not been on the radar. He, and many of you, have spent great energy, money and time.
A radicalized Muslim who was once on a terrorist watch list used a Sig Sauer assault rifle in Orlando. He legally purchased his weapon, even though the FBI had investigated him twice for terrorist ties. Previously, a gun store owner found him suspicious enough to call the FBI.
In regards to Gov. Inslee's approval of the Spokane Tribe's $400 million casino: I think they should have gone to Libby or Missoula and purchased land to build their casino. Three major casinos is one too many for this area, especially since the Coeur d'Alene Casino is the only major employer in an economically disadvantaged location.
The realization that the cost of repairing bridges was not taken into account when the $60 million dollar bond was passed to renovate Riverfront Park was unsettling. That the bridges could not withstand the weight of increased usage has been known since the 1990s. Now it is suggested a jump into a new "kick start" project, The Clock Tower. This should not be done without first having clear funding for the repair of the bridges.
The candidacy of Donald Trump is a disaster in the making for the Republican Party. With his ego in the air and his head in the sand, Trump thinks he could win in New York and California. An ice cube stands a better chance in hell. Who in those states is going to vote for him or, for that matter, who is going to vote for him across the nation?
This is in reference to "Vote Republican, skip Trump," a June 16 letter asking voters to vote Republican but leave the presidential selection blank. While I agree with the writer about Mr. Trump, I strongly disagree with his idea to leave the presidential selection blank or choose someone else other than the Democratic candidate.
