Ok, We’ll Give Her This….

trophytinaTiny Tina is Smarter Than Ben “I want a raise” Wolfinger:

Now don’t read too much into this folks, but…

This from Tina’s Facebook Page about the recent Pravda On The Lake piece about Deputies jumping from the sinking ship for more money!!!!

Says Tina:

“What most people don’t see is the big picture. The Press (and the deputies & Sheriff) leaves out important information to incite an emotional response. Sgt. Scott Maxwell is complaining that his insurance is going to go up $130/mo. for himself, his wife and his child ($43.33/ea) (It’s actually only $117.92 more with only one child and his spouse since he’s going from 3 children down to one). However, he did not mention that he got a $5.72/hr wage increase (19.4%!!). On 2/16/15, he was earning $29.44/hr or $61,235.20/yr. On 8/31/16, he is earning $35.16/hr or $73,136.96/yr. He is making $991.82/mo. more and he is complaining that his insurance for his whole family went up $117.92/mo.?! Spokane Sheriff employees have to pay a premium of 9% for their family, which at Scott’s rate would be $548.53/mo.! And Sgt. Jon Brandel shouldn’t be complaining. On 2/16/15, he was earning $30.32/hr or $63,065.60/yr. On 8/31/16, he is earning $37.23/hr or $77,440.48/yr. He didn’t mention that he got a $6.91/hr wage increase (22.8%!!). He’s making $1,197.91/mo. more! And just as a side note,…Bradley Wolfinger, the Sheriff’s son, got a 30.2% increase in his pay, from $22.36/hr to $29.11/hr! And this is not including any life insurance (equal to the annual salary up to a max of 100k-provided by the county), overtime, vacation (8-16 hrs ea mo depending on yrs worked-up to 240 hrs/yr) or sick pay (4 hrs every pay period). Now, don’t get me wrong,…I believe the deputies should be paid well, however, they shouldn’t be complaining about getting 20%,…25%,…30% or more in wage increases with their great benefits, when even unions don’t negotiate anything close to that. A good sheriff would not be continuing to spread this misinformation to further hurt the morale in the office. As sheriff, I will lead with honesty & integrity to boost morale and retain the deputies needed to protect the people.”

They got a raise and they’re still quitting??????? Somebody needs to get their story straight…..BBBBBBEEEEEEENNNNNNNN?

Hmmmmm, somethings rotten in C’dAistan! (At Bens’ digs anyway!) Tina is apparently on to something!

See the original on Tina’s Facebook Page here:

You got to scroll down folks…it ain’t going to jump to the top!

What Does Ed Pace Know That Tina Won’t Tell Us?????

curliegirltinaThe curls are a nice touch for a Sheriff…don’t cha think!

But seriously folks….We hate it when someone interrupts a good nap!

Had a couple of requests for a response to “Pastor” Ed Pace, endorsement of Tiny Tina for Sheriff.

Our response….BIG YAWN!

Ed’s not even form Kootenai County. Anybody seen any mainstream Kootenai County Pastor’s jumping on Tina’s Titanic?

Now, if it’s really Pastor Ed Pace, he’d be concerned with truth and transparency. In that case Ed, perhaps you’d be so kind as to share Tina’s resume with our readers? What? You’ve never seen one? Well neither have we! Cause there ain’t a single thing on it that would be helpful toward being Sheriff!

Tina has about as much chance of getting elected Sheriff as Vermin Supreme has at being elected President! On second thought, Vermin’s chances are much better!

Dear Tina Supporters…you’re as delusional as she is if you think she’s either electable, or qualified!

That’s our final word on the 2016 Kootenai County Sheriff’s Race.

We’re writing in John Green for Sheriff! (No, he’s not a an official write-in candidate, but we don’t care!)

Now, back to that nap!

Jeff Alltus…R.I.P. Good Friend!…


Green Says No To Tiny For Sheriff…Er…Make That Tina…

machineguntinaIn a Facebook post Republican Sheriff’s Candidate John Green left no room for doubt that he DOES NOT support or endorse Tina “Machine Gun” Kunishige for Sheriff in the November 2016 General Election.

He gives supporting points and sound reasoning for his position, but we’re sure he left something out…No doubt he  wants to maintain his credibility! 

I don’t think we’ll be posting much on the Sheriff’s race, unless Ben quits or Tina says something really silly (very likely) it just won’t be news worthy.

Even if Wyatt Earp was running as a Democrat for Sheriff, he wouldn’t stand a chance of winning against a Republican in Kootenai County!

The sad part is that there are some kooky “Patriots” that are actually going to waste their time pursing the looney idea that she could win!


Bob Nonini…A Mason’s Best Friend…


Bob and his boy Luke…is this weird?

Well, some of them anyway…

Bob and Cathyann Nonini were very vocal about their fight against Don Cheatham because….well…he is, after all, a Free Mason! (It’s just a club to Don, we discovered!)

But they had no trouble supporting Ben Wolfinger, who is a Free Mason, against Catholic John Green! (Great Catholic example Mr. & Mrs. Nonini…NOT!)

Don Cheatham won…Thank goodness! Ben Wolfinger won…Lord help us!

Conservatives are already talking about how to help Bob Nonini join Stewie in the ranks of the Former Politician Hypocrites Club!

A big THANK YOU to:

Kathy Sims

John Green

Art Macomber

All three of these solid conservatives lost due directly to the help Bob Nonini gave to their opponents! Let’s never forget that fact!

The Good News…

Stewie’s Toast!

Doo-ane and Fred Who…down in flames

Ann Seddon put the final nail in the Nonini plan…Bu-By Riggs! Glad we know ya not!

The Bad News…

DooFo won’t be moving to Spokanistan!
