tpeacock 1 week, 1 day ago on Letter - President should have honored veterans

No one snubbed anybody. The incredibly nonsensical things people come up with these days is truly pathetic. To even make a statement that a vet died in service to the Country so a future leader would/could 'snub' them by not attending some service is insulting to all.

That from the reigning king of letters with no substance, unless crassness, name calling, and childish rants are now considered substantive commenting.

tpeacock 4 weeks, 1 day ago on Letter - Walla Walla County Auditor Karen Martin knows what she is doing

I read the first and it looks as if there was nothing wrong found. The second link goes nowhere. I would suggest a campaign on personal strengths and what you have to offer, not mud slinging at a well respected opponent, especially when the slinging comes up short on mud.

tpeacock 1 month ago on Letter - Initiative 594 is bad for freedom

I purchased my shotgun at a gun show a couple of years ago here in Spokane. Not only was there no background check, the seller asked me if I had ID, as I pulled out my wallet to show him he told me he didn't need to see it, he merely had to ask if I had it while he and another man sitting him chuckled as if it were a joke. My point is, you are absolutely incorrect when you state "Every gun bought from a booth at a gun show also will have a background check performed'. Perhaps you meant any weapon purchased from a licensed dealer... My purchase is exactly the 'loophole' referred to.

'and has worked with national educators on the Constitution and the formation of our country' So she must have over 200 years of experience then?

tpeacock 1 month ago on Letter - ‘Creative destruction’ brings about change

Perhaps I'm reading his letter incorrectly, but I believe he's being quite sarcastic, especially with that remark. Maybe you're rush to criticize anyone you consider assailing Turner with their Letters is hindering your ability to pick up on the subtleties of essays. I have no dog in this fight, I just think too many are too fanatical and there's been far too much from both sides of the Sherriff's election run. It will be refreshing a couple of months after this is over and the sore loser letters have ceased.

tpeacock 1 month ago on Letter - Join the revolt, toss the incumbents out

Very nicely stated and the main theme of any politically related letter I have penned for the newspaper. I've always known it's a waste of a voter's privilege by maintaining a one party voting stance as no one party has ever been exclusively on the right path. Those we have elected, once comfortable in their environ, seem to forget all about us until reelection time, then hop on the latest 'cause' sweeping the Country to impress us with their concerns for said causes, and treat us like we pay no attention to what they do (or don't do) for us and/or we're not smart enough to understand just how important they are to the States well being.
Enough is truly enough!

tpeacock 2 months ago on Letter - McMorris Rodgers out of touch; vote Pakootas

'As Speaker he was required to defend national liberal issues which put him out of favor with the conservative district he represented and he failed to get re-elected.' Perhaps my memory is off, but wasn't he (I assume you're referencing Tom Foley?) defeated by someone who ran on a platform of being vehemently in favor of term limits, then upon reaching stated term limit, wanted to be reelected as he was just getting his footing in DC and now realized term limits weren't the horse he wanted to back It amuses when party affiliation effects the manner in which people remember past events or frame their responses to others postings.

tpeacock 2 months ago on Letter - Punishing walkers, bikers not way to stop accidents

Or so one would expect, but nowadays it seems we are turning into a 'pick and choose what law you want to obey' society. If a law inconveniences us, or if a law is deemed by someone to interfere with their day, let's just ignore it. Using the same line of reasoning, the laws we have dictating how we drive should discourage most from even owning a motor vehicle. How inconvenient for us that we can't do 60 down Main and Isaacs, it would make getting out to Eastgate so much quicker.
