Re: “Ren faire

The Big Sky Ren Faire is near and dear to our hearts…more so now that we were married there. Not only is it a great deal of fun but it is wonderful that it supports local charities.

Re: “Wyoming coyote trapper defends graphic photos

There is no excuse for ANYONE trapping ANY living being, much less allowing his own dog or dogs to torture it. Regardless of whether or not trapping is a "proven method of animal control", the question is this? Would YOU like to be caught in a trap because it is a "proven method of human control"? I doubt it.

Further, if coyotes ate your dog, or cat, or bird, etc., it is most likely because HUMANS have invaded THEIR territory with construction/destruction, and they are clearly starving. The difference between an animal and a human is that an animal only kills when it MUST and believes it has no other choice. Humans kill simply to kill.

Re: “Parade politics

Very nicely done. Followed the rules, didn't try to muscle anyone, and helped the food bank as well. Trifecta?

And a belated Happy Independence Day!

Re: “America’s Worst Politicians

While I enjoyed this cover story, I was a bit disappointed that Krayton Kerns (R-Laurel) didn't make the MT list. Here you have a guy who moved to table (kill) bills which would have regulated the state's notorious puppy mills AND would have made spectating at dog fights a felony (MT is the only state in the union where attending dog fights is NOT a felony--while dog fighting itself is a felony). Kerns fears the Slippery Slope: If you can't watch dogs being abused in the fighting ring, that might threaten your ability to watch other animals being abused in the rodeo arena. If you require that dogs in puppy mills be treated humanely today, you might decide that livestock on ranches and farms deserve humane consideration tomorrow. The icing on this crap cake is the fact that Kerns is...(wait for it!)...a veterinarian.

Re: “America’s Worst Politicians

Where is Max Baucus, absolutely the worst Senator in US history. While posing as a Democrat, he has been a one-man 5th column for the Republicans, endorsing all their rotten 1% games, and then making Democrats like it... Just to name a few...
ACA, without public option, and total sell-out to "insurance" racketeers. Medicare Part D- flat subsidy of some $40 billion a year to 5 drug cartels, causing thousands of deaths because of over-prescribed drugs and resulting problems. All the various bank bailouts, repealing Glass-Steagal, etc. - $trillions to the 1%, from which we might never recover... Voting for all the wars and occupations, opposing nuke reductions, NATO invasions and warmongering on a vast scale, etc. PATRIOT ACT, Homeland security (consstantly urging more military and "national security" pork for MOntana... Supporting MOnsanto, opposing GMO bans, etc. Supporting the Keystone XL and other climate catastrophes...

No other Senator in history can claim even half of this damage...

Re: “The end of taste

Finally read this piece. Happy I did. One thing, though, Mr. Brooks: Your generalization about radio is only valid if you ignore college radio. I'm sure you meant commercial radio, but I feel like it's worth mentioning college radio, which has certainly been around for three decades or so, as a place "people who like music" can find something to listen to over the airwaves.

Long live music AND college radio!

Re: “America’s Worst Politicians

I really wish people who comment on immigration knew what they were taking about. Try reading the legislation or at least the main principles.

Re: “Blowhards

Beneath the heading, "Oregon Republican Party Chairman Art Robinson", it talks in part about our, "cash-strapped state". That is exactly why we are supporting Dr. Robinson. It has little to do with GOP or conservatism, it is about stopping the runaway government from destroying our posterity. Believe what you wish about "us'ns out west", those of us who think of Colorado as "Back East" have the same desires and problems as those who live elsewhere in our country. Representative to Congress for our district 4 has not supported the wishes or needs of we citizens here for more than 25 years. With slight of hand, hundreds of thousands in special interest money lining his war chest, Peter DeFazio still is lying about Dr. Robinson. The author of this article is still perpetuating the myths of radiation perpetrated by the DeFazio camp.

We need change in Congress. Art Robinson's is the voice I want representing me in Congress. If you are in our district, go talk to Dr. Robinson before you mark your ballot. He is a successful scientist and business operator, a quite successful single parent, not a lifetime politician who has never held any job in his life other than politics.

Re: “America’s Worst Politicians

I also believe the list is a little wrong as well. I don't see where protecting your state from the constant flow of illegal Mexicans and having them fall on the backs of the taxpayers is wrong nor hateful. We have borders for a reason. Jan Brewer is not hateful she is just trying to do her job since the feds won't do theirs.

Question? What do you call a country full of illegal's who are living off of the government , don't understand our language, and don't want to live by our rules and laws.

Answer! Illegal Democrat Voters.

Nuff Said.

Re: “Blowhards

Regarding Trent Franks R-Az. and the Casino W. of Phoenix
Before you go spouting off about the Casino deal I suggest you get your facts straight. The proposed Casino is indeed West of Phoenix in a county island in the middle of Glendale. The location is several hundred miles from the Tohono O'odham reservation and they are trying to jam this down our throats due to a law that was passed before gaming was even allowed. Why don't you invite the O'odham to come to Missoula and build a fancy casino next to your city hall. Oh and you would have absolutely no say in the matter because it is a federal issue.

Re: “Sleazeballs

Another reason why these rags have no credibility. Tester and Montana Dems use Hilltop, which ran THREE dark money orgs in '12 and spent over a million dollars to keep Tester's seat, but it's a small state Senator who is "most" tied to dark money in the state.

Riiiiight.
