A $17 million shortfall as a result of 200 students calculates out to $85,000 per student. Really? How does that make sense? Is UM's administration playing with numbers once again in order to justify their actions? How is that calculated? With this obviously such a big issue, why are they so focused on adding more buildings and creating another campus. They would be able to use empty classrooms (both the ones they have now and the ones these types of cuts will create) for Missoula College students. Maybe some of the administrators should sit down with economists that are actually in tune with real life and figure out an equitable and just solution for students and faculty.
I hope you realize that poll only polled six eastern states one month after the Newtown incident. Montana wasn't one of them. Check it before citing it. As for the legislation the Manchin Toomey Amendment was there to help push the S-649 BILL through that covered much broader gun control. The title of this bill is " Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act of 2013". Folks you need to go to Government website and check these things. If you are relying on the media... any media to give you the straight scoop then you are in for a rude awakening. The fact to people on here actually referred to Manchin Toomey as a bill indicates how people have been misdirected. Go and check the actual legislation out @ senate.gov. Then make your statement. Careful you might get real pissed off at how you were misguided by your trusted media. Thank God Max Baucus lived up to his oath of office and NO Montanans should ever want the Constitution weakened in any way and this legislation would have weakened it despite what all the talking heads say. As Montanans we should all agree on one other thing too. We do not need a more powerful Federal Government.
If you read the bill you would have seen that the provision which claims to outlaw national gun registration in fact authorizes a national gun registry as in what Hitler did to confiscate the guns from the Jewish people. People should study the bills then you would know why we didn't dare to make it law.
I don't understand how voting for the Manchin-Toomey bill would have restricted the Second Amendment. And I don't think Max does either. That's a lousy excuse.
Baucus seems to forget that NRA and its cronies (including Baucus) essentially defunded the ATF and resources to crack down on criminals trying to buy guns. I just love how they lie, lie, lie and twist the truth into more lies. You don't spit on the grave of 20 6 yr olds Mr. Baucus and survive politically but more importantly personally. U had an opportunity to stand up like Senator Tester did to the gun lobby whose only goal is to make gun manufacturers richer, they could care less about the death of our young or keeping communities safe. Instead of towing to the NRA, you could educate your constituents and get them to see the FACTS which overwhelmingly show the staggering amount of gun deaths every day (8 kids/day, 87 ppl/day, over 30,000/yr) and ask them to work with you and understand that background checks matter. Baucus is a COWARD and GOD is looking down on him and the 45 other senators and taking notes.
I have to ignore all of his , Baucus, comments. It is simply this, he is a democrat that has been in place in a red state known for a lot of hunting and outdoor sports. The public has been lied to by lobbyists and all that have money to lose if this bill had passed. If he had voted no this would have been used against him during the next election, plain and simple. I voted for hime but never will again.
Being in the U of M dance department and hearing that Linda and Bob won't be with us anymore is truly heartbreaking news. Both are some of the hardest working people I know, and this is a terrible thing to happen to them. It makes no sense to cut the instruction first. Like others have asked, what about the administrators? Are there any cuts there?
NO administrators are taking a cut that I have heard of. And there sure aren't enough taking a cut to save all those that they are eliminating. BS. It's supposed to be an educational institution, and the first thing cut is instruction. Of COURSE it's the biggest piece of the pie, it's a UNIVERSITY, people!
Meanwhile, how many administrators are taking a pay cut?
If your living in Montana or any other place with lots of "wild places" who goes to town except to buy food and other neccessities. A town is a town is a city.
Away from folks in the plains, desert or mountains is where you become centered. If you care what others think about you, then you do not belong here.
Keeping up with and caring what the "Joneses" is human nature for some and everywhere there are people that stuff happens. I agree with the person above who stated, why comment on where you are going!
And the hat. A want to be Johnny Deeper! Oh yeah, Tabloid magnet!!!!!!
Ok so have any of you ever had dogs? Have you ever watched them interact with other dogs they have not met before? I see absolutely nothing wrong with the photos whatsoever. Why? Because I am a trapper and a dog owner and lover and when K-9's get together, they sometimes act aggressivley toward each other. It is nature. Too many people have been taught that animals are human like.... they are not. They need to be controlled properly and humanely. Incidentally, the excise fees paid by sportsman since 1937 via the Pittman-Robertson Act are the funds used by the Federal and State Conservation departments to manage and conserve (not preserve), conserve the natural wildlife resource. Without sportsman and their funds, including trappers and trapping, the large native wildlife populations we all enjoy today and have to manage is a direct result of those efforts. Too many people react based on emotion rather than rational thought. The next time you're walking your little ankle biter down the street and it comes upon an other dog, see how they react. It will not always be tail wagging fun. Get a clue people!
This is news? I'm usually leaning more towards the Dems as much as any progressive. I remember how he bent the wishes of the people to meet the needs of the insurance companies when he wrote up the ACA or what ever that watered down mess turned out to be. Gop cronies or Dem cronies, cronies are cronies. I'ld like to see him back up Elizabeth Warren. Or at least see her turn over his rock.
Montana is like Texas. They don't sugar coat shit and will tell ya to kiss their ass if you a left ass Yuppie tofu eating weird o's. But if your real. You can bet you ass you will have great neighbors . They just get sick of all the God dammed California weirdos. They will ruin Montana just like they destroyed Colorado.
Where can we see the contract itself?
Bobble Head for President...Hey it could be worse don't you think?
Don't forget, people like this exterminated the PEOPLE who were here first as well. Why would any clear-minded person ever consider the native species of animals being exempt from the same horror? Since the USDA is so hell bent on "controlling predators," which we know is only for the sake of making money, and acting out their hatred toward other species, maybe it's time to start at the top of the list.
This is funny.. Worried about 80 tons of coal, but no one says anything about the thousands of tons of Haz-Mat that rolls through ALL the major cities!! Please people, figure it out!! There is no such health issues that go along with coal trains rolling by.. It's amazing how ignorant the extreme "greenie" make most of the general public!!! I'm going to help you all in Missoula, coal will continue to run through your city wheather one of the five proposed terminals are built or not, it WILL continue to be exported through BC, and the two coal fire plants at Centralia and Boardman Or..
@shimmy: I agree, the way coyotes (like all wild dogs and hyenas) kill their prey (starting to eat it before it's dead) is awful to witness. But the BIG difference between what they are doing and what cruel, mindless sub-humans like Olsen are doing, is that they are following their instinct, pure and simple, and that is how they get to eat (you know, like if they don't eat they don't survive??). Olsen and his sub-breed, on the other hand, do what they do for sadistic pleasure. THERE is the difference you needed to have pointed out to you.
Watch your back, Karma's coming. She's a sneaky little bitch! It will come for you, not your dogs.
Happy hunting you ignorant sick POS
Don't worry she'll post your picture too.
Like in Vegas...any doubts on the disagreements will normally favor the dealer...whether it is the city, the feds, the state, or the taxman. They are the ones with the big tax funded bucks. Are crazy attacking society because they are crazy...or is this lack of fairness we are schooled on from first grade making them crazy?
