Time to fire Inslee

Jay Inslee has wandered so far from the needs of Washington citizens that to award him another four years would be unconscionable.

Parties are important

For several years before broadcasting my weekly radio show, The Brief Congressional Update, on KYRS Thin Air Community Radio (92.3 and 81.1 FM), I believed that the political party to which one belongs really doesn’t make a big difference – just vote for the person who is honest, has integrity, and is friendly.

Those aren’t debates

Please may we never have another televised political debate? My wife and I were both college debaters and communication PhDs. The political showcases we have are not debates in any way recognizable way and an insult to any thinking person. The first presidential debate was, of course, a bad joke. All Americans should be required to watch SNL's take off. The true joke. The official staged "debate" was actually like Alec Baldwin's lunatic Trump trying to insult Joe Biden to throw him off. Jim Carrey's hilarious impersonation of Biden using a paper bag to control hyper ventilating and not calling Trump a clown, (oops he did anyway) was spot on.

Not just Halloween

In response to the article in the Spokesman Review of Oct. 14, “Halloween’s Eerie History,” I would like to draw attention to the other historical day that is recognized on October 31.

Why I’m voting Trump

I’m voting for four-more-years, because President Trump has kept his promise to make America great again – against unyielding opposition.

Graham has the experience

In the election for state representative there is a choice in the 6th Legislative District in which I live and the person who is the clear choice is Rep. Jenny Graham.

Sign theft is bipartisan

I'm writing in regards to two letters to the editor on October 11 about political sign theft. On October 9, numerous Biden/Harris signs were taken from our South Hill neighborhood.

Trump acted swiftly

Trump restricted travel from China on Jan 31 when there were just 6 Covid-19 cases and no deaths per CDC. Biden said he would not have shut out China travelers.

Thank you V.A. staff

Vote with wisdom

Hopefully we are approaching the end of four years of turmoil, corruption, impeachment and lies with Trump. The Republican Party should be wondering how did they go so far astray in their philosophy and principles to allow Trump to become president. Most of the armed militias on our streets are dangerous and Trump’s ignorant rhetoric emboldens them.

CMR and Trump

The Spokesman-Review used to have an actual editorial board. It now has only one voice, Publisher Stacey Cowles, who omitted an important fact in his October 11 political endorsement for Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers.

COVID overraction

President Abe Lincoln said, “You can fool some of the people sometimes. You can fool some people always. But you cannot fool all people all the time.”

First Nations issues

I would like to thank the Spokesman for its recent insert by the Washington tribes drawing attention to the history, as well as current contributions, of the First Nations that occupied the land we call Washington, and the fact that the city of Spokane sits on the homeland of the Spokane tribe. It is important to remember that the prosperity of so many has been made possible by that which was taken from the original inhabitants of this land.

Health care is at risk

Health care is a major issue for this election as well as being challenged in the Supreme Court in early November. The Republicans are hoping to dismantle the ACA (Obamacare), which will leave 20+ million people without coverage at a time our country is in a health care crisis.
