This load was not using the same route as the oil-sands equipment shipments. I have had good luck with those loads so far. There was truly no place where this load could have pulled off the highway, but the driver could have easily stopped five different times, and let me use the turnout to get around the load. I discussed this with the company CEO, so I hope his drivers will get the message.
Evan as a confirmed liberal -- I have a hard time getting by the confirmation bias dripping from this article and its subsequent posts.
I am just sadly disappointed that our Governor lacks the same testicles his predecessor had. The THC/DUI law just enacted flies in the face of sound science and common sense. The VETO brand should have made an appearance. I hope he will show more courage in the future.
Nice article! This is such a meditative place to visit- it's nice to have the background you have shared here. We encourage our Blue Mountain Bed and Breakfast guests to stop by when they go to The Bison Range or Glacier. My husband and I always stop when we take a trip north of Missoula.
I agree with you that we must research the truth behind all activist groups. Please research the source, that is, the NCFM's webpage and read for yourself what they do.
Also, I feel that the best advocate for peace and true gender equality is Dr. Warren Farrell. To everyone reading this; please check out Dr. Farrell's work.
However, I have a few questions.
Mary, you claim that the NCFM is spreading lies. What lies exactly? What actions have the NCFM taken to convince you they are a "hate" group? You claim the NCFM is dangerous. How are they dangerous, and to whom?
You claim that 80% of rapes (do you mean rapists?) are never convicted, and that most rapes are never reported. What is your source for these "facts," and how can this be proven if they are NEVER reported? You claim these rapists were never convicted, does this mean they were found innocent?
How is your ex-wife significant to your points?
And finally, do you think that women's groups should be held under the same scrutiny as the NCFM?
Please clarify, and reference specific facts.
"And in a legislative season that has seen Helena ignore real and pressing issues to pursue political gamesmanship, Friday's session of the Senate burned down the kitchen, broke all the plates, held up a tangled clutch of scorched housewares to voters and said, 'Look, I baked you a cake.'"
The filthy sewer under PW's nose finally caught up with him. It's good to see that justice was served.
Dr Kress has displayed extraordinary and thoughtful courage in his medical practice. Now he shares that thoughtfulness and courage publicly with his testimony before the Legislature. I can't imagine a more principled and upright commitment to the best interests of his patients.
Ms Dore, predictably, intrudes into Montana's consideration of this issue with yet more dire predictions, ridiculous exaggerations, and outright lies. She fought against the establishment of Washington's law that provides guidelines and oversight of this vital patient right. She lost. She has continued trying to undermine the law and harrassing patients and doctors. She keeps losing.
Ms Dore is a fundamentalist zealot who wants to use government to impose her narrow beliefs on people who don't agree with them. She will continue to lose.
Dr. Kress is a kind and compassionate doctor. The world needs more doctors like him.
I'll start with the positives: on "Friday afternoon Senate Democrats pulled condoms over their heads and fell out the bedroom window." Priceless. If there's one way to get people to read about state-wide politics, a little humor goes a long way. Unfortunately the humor ends as Mr. Brooks leads us through the facts of last week's legislature meltdown. Both parties should be ashamed. Democrats stink like fish on this one-- weasling out of voting through parlimentary technicalities. And Republicans should re-evaluate their whole approach to legislating. You're not there to sit in power, scratch your buddy's back so he can scratch yours. You're there to make Montana a better place. Ensuring that you and more of your kind will get elected in the future based on voter suppression is a cowardly way to win an election. What happened to commen sense ideas as a platform for getting elected? I'm sad to say that this Legislative Session appears to be full of the same kind of nonsensical attention to all the wrong details that made the Montana Senate the laughing stock of national news in 2011.
Were I a member of the Senate I would hide that fact from anyone who asked.
We have to take notice of these groups. They are very dangerous. They disseminate lies and hatred. They are sexist to the core and try to cover it up with some concern. Over 80 % of all rapes are never convicted. Most rapes are not even reported. The macho sexist culture that this man and these groups come from while they have a right to exist must be continually exposed as what they are a hate group against women. I have been divorced and have 2 children and my X can be brutal and only concerned about herself but that has nothing to do with the origin of this group or its real agenda.
I'll add my kudos for Pat Williams. May he find other worthy associations to promote excellence in academia.
One day will not work. You'll have a ton of fireworks on July 4th and you'lll still have fireworks on the 3rd, 5th and 6th. And in October and in May.
Stay firm and just say no.
I think it's not quite the truth to say "nobody's being told they're not going to be hired for next year". At all.
And while Perry Brown's spin hints that the classes simply aren't needed, so therefore not a big deal if some are cut, it makes sense that enrollment numbers aren't going to increase if students aren't willing to come here because there are less classes offered.
Maybe some administration (perhaps those responsible for this fiasco?) could take a few pay cuts, save a few adjuncts positions, save some classes, make it more appealing for students to come to UM.
"After what I saw in the Senate on Friday, I'm starting to wonder why anyone would want to go back." ...should read why anyone would want (them) to go back...typical example of a failed two-party political system.
If I had to put a label on myself - independent would be best, but that doesn't work in our political system - so I'll go with progressive (for the people) or socialist (for the people) democrat. The democrats are failing the needs of the people these days, and the republitards are the result.
That's too bad. I expect a higher standard of behavior out of all Montanans. Criminal behavior should not be tolerated for anyone, including "star" athletes, politicians, movie/tv "stars", etc, etc. etc, ...
It's ashame that when someone actually tells the truth now-a-days they are run out of town pretty much. People only want to see & hear what they want, the truth be damned.
It does seem the standard for playing Griz football sure isn't what it once was. And the politics of this University are very shameful. Lies, coverups, protect the image - - sounds pretty much like our own little Washington DC right here in Missoula.
I give kudos to Pat Williams for calling it was it is. It's too bad people are so blind anymore they don't want to see what's right from wrong - - just as long as the sacred Grizzlies win their football games. So, how has that worked out in the last year?
I totallly agree with Dr. Kress and the right of every Montanan faced with a terminal illness to consult with their physician regarding end-of-life decisions and seek assistance. HB 505 is yet another attempt by Republicans to inpose their outrageous values into law. Republicans need to stop meddling in people's private lives.
Thank you, Dr. Kress. We stand by you in your dedication to supporting your patients at one of their most difficult times.
