Kevconpat 2 months, 3 weeks ago on Spokane’s first pot buyer says he’s getting fired

So as of this morning, Friday......... 'Spokane Guy' is back at work with his employers blessing. He bought pot legally and was not at work while he used the pot legally. His employer apparently now states he did nothing wrong. (Policy) say's nothing against the guy or any employee from using pot while not in the workplace on days off where He is employed. Confusing, a bit. Stay tuned. He may have been exuberant but not an idiot. Read the facts.

Kevconpat 2 months, 3 weeks ago on Letter - Dogs, despite ban, were all over park on Fourth

I love Dogs- however, why is there a 'NO DOGS' in the parks signs when there are zillions running about? The worse thing, DUH- is the poop that happens! The Dog's lazy (owners) not picking up the poop!. They're truly the problem... as we know Dogs do do, no pun intended!!! poop! Also the possibility of dog's jumping on surprised people is a nuisance, but what if a dog bites an adult person minding their own business while simply walking through the park? How about a child- even worse! Let's get some consistency here at least. Come on WW... Dogs in the parks, ok, leashed and owners with poop bags! Problem solved! Oh- and if a dog bites a person, then sue the heck out of the owner! I love our parks. I love Dogs. I do not like lazy dog owners. My apologies to the MOSTLY responsible dog owners. Good Dog!

Kevconpat 2 months, 4 weeks ago on US highway fund running on near empty

Again, we pretty much agree! Politicians have a blast spending money....... Speaking of Patty Murray brings me to Cathy McMorris Rodgers. The wing-woman who never seems to utter her own thoughts; she always appears to be very scripted and little else than the stand in female side-line with Boehner & guys. I believe; infact I truly believe- woman can be strong honest politicians- on their own. I've seen little of this. Why be like most of the seasoned guy's? A lot of rhetoric and little substance. OBTW, women do have a personal right if they want to use contraceptives: I'm not talking about who pay's for the contraceptive(s), I mean they have a right, period. Why do you and almost all conservative males have to attach to their choice that these women are little more than uncontrollable whores? That is demeaning to women in general. Over 90% use or have chosen birth control. (Read) you comments from a few days ago. Carefully planning families they can afford and provide for, married or not seems very responsible, wouldn't you agree? Men should be so insightful. In procreation the old fashioned way it takes two to tangle, right! Happy Independence Day to all.

Actually I do think that the xl pipeline would bring about a lot of jobs, but perhaps at a price. There is always a risk to the environment. It is a balancing act, but I'd say I am for a 'go' on this issue. I am not a critic. Are you? Why are you always so snarky? I have my opinions- and yes I think that the congressional Republicans will hold up on the Hwy Transportation bill. My opinion. Further more, I don't put a lot of trust into either main party.

Come on now; the lives and lively hoods of hwy. construction workers as well as all citizens who use our highways deserve the US Federal Hwy. Trust Fund be funded. Democrats and the Pres. are ready to pass it. The next move is up to the Republicans. Please step up to the plate. This should be a bipartisan slam dunk.

Kevconpat 3 months ago on Supreme Court rules employers not required to cover contraceptives

I believe the decision by the Supremes was a reasoned one. A Deeply religious family and their business model, 'Hobby Lobby'- for decades. Precedent was clearly in play here. It is clear now if you seek employment with Hobby Lobby, you will know these restrictions. This family business is not against all forms of birth control. Further more the vast majority of employees elsewhere are not covered under this edict, so simple buyer beware... those seeking employment. This affects Hobby Lobby and about 80 similarly aligned businesses throughout the US.

Kevconpat 3 months ago on Letter - Opinions in recent Union-Bulletins too liberal

Actually, some of your long ago past posts were often contradictory. Whatever, sometimes we all, yes me too- say things and we swear later that we didn't. Hmmm, that is a human trait of all political persuasions. Anyway, your conservative friends, and maybe your- as you put it, left leaning....how is that possible for you? You go out of your way to bash, belittle and dissect anyone's opinions that are to liberal/left leaning. Of course, what is liberal to you is anyone's guess. I often laugh, (but not at you)...I'm just perplexed how I get you in such a rub by just being, well me. I have never for once thought myself left leaning. I am centric and have a deep belief in fairness and equality. This I believe is pretty darn conservative. The weekend is nearly here; throw back a cold bruski and enjoy this time with your wife. My husband and I will chill as well.

Namvet! I am surprised! I would have thought you of all people would have applauded our diverse neighborhoods successful efforts in ridding the city of one less meth/heroine drug house. Instead you attack this committed group of neighbors - calling us a 'cult and huddle' under a liberal umbrella. Wow........you sure have a way with words. Didn't know fighting meth and heroine was a liberal cult agenda. You don't really support illegal hard drugs, do you? Ps, love to meet your friends; see if any are mine. One never knows!

Nat Webb, Namvet: Grow some back bone! Quit living in an unrealistic secluded world of...."this is the way it is" and "this is the way it's always been"... WW has changed and will continue to do so. Mix it up a bit and stop complaining and whining. Be a part of a better community.You sound like little babies who can't get their way! It's pathetic. I love a good run with those who are not like - minded like my husband and I. We talk it out and listen, a lot!... and in the end we've become better neighbors for it. This neighborhood is a great example of how listening and working together, regardless of political persuasion or sexual orientation fostered respect of all our families, despite differences, and gave rise to a great celebration in what was desired for all of us, like a meth/heroine drug free neighborhood after years and years! It was pure hell. We all did it together because of our shared values. We are Demo's, Repub's and yes- Tea Party families........Liberal and Conservative with many shared values all on the same blocks! No kidding! Peace out-
