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: “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...

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.

Re: “America’s Worst Politicians

You conveniently left out Obama as winning the honor of being voted the worst President since WW2. I'm not sure just what label fits best. With the combination of incompetency and corruption, he might be referred to as an incompetent mafia boss.

Re: “Broad comedy

Hahahaha! No alf nothing like that. Just would like to see other news here. Don’t take it wrong, I love this paper and the people that post on it.

Re: “The long wait

The proper acronym for V.A. is Venomous Absconders. The crimes committed by this institution of dodgy hustlers MUST continue to be exposed. The Long Wait is an apt title considering the many veterans that wait until death for the deliverance of support they were promised and their families left with valid convictions that this country their loved one sacrificed so much for doesn’t give a shit. The subject matter, as we know, is an endless rabbit hole of questionable intentions. Albeit, not every employee of the V.A. is a heartless monster, just as not every faction of the U.S. government is compiled of lying, murderous domestic terrorists. Is it acceptable that when a decorated Vietnam vet was told that he was assigned to go from Laos to San Francisco to open fire on protesters of the war, despite his six year term being up? Is it wrong that when he refused and went AWOL, he received dishonorable discharge and is now told by the V.A. that he was never in the war at all. How many vets has this happened/ing to? One is too damn many. Such nonchalant shamelessness!!! Are Shinseki and his cronies drones?!? My heart and support goes out to Dustin Monroe and all the vets who essentially gave up everything for the land of the free, then denied and denied and denied; priceless. One thing we, as a community, country and fellow human beings is to continue to encourage our veterans get their stories out as to the abuses they receive from the V.A. and its affiliates and petition for a serious investigation of their “ethics”, preferably by an agency that isn’t the Veteran Affairs this time.

Re: “The long wait

I haven't signed up for VA benefits yet, and if half of what I hear and read is true, I may never, so I haven't had any first-hand experience with the VA. But I have been screwed by every other federal agency I've dealt with; and the USMC recruiter who signed me up was the probably one of the biggest liars I've ever dealt with in my life.

Re: “Broad comedy

I think this paper is dying due to lack of interesting articles. Need to spice it up some. Like the Sheriff’s Deputy that was kissing a married fellow officer in her home or the Missoula man accused of sexually assaulting girl multiple times. Just seems like the same old style articles.

What the veterans are going through is nothing but criminal. As a veteran myself I feel I was cheated and lied to about my benefits.

Re: “Smurfit-Stone

In a recent Missoulian article about this issue, Missoula County officials stated:

“We believe the MT DEQ violated its own rules and federal regulations in reissuing this permit."

It's pretty ironic that the director of the MT DEQ is Tracy Stone-Manning, the former head of the Clark Fork Coalition. Yet, in this case, according to Missoula County officials, Director Manning and the DEQ "violated its own rules and federal regulations in reissuing this [Clark Fork River pollution] permit."

Wow, did everyone else notice that MT DEQ's original water pollution permit for the Smurfit-Stone paper mill allowed the corporation to dump 20,000,000 (20 million) gallons of wastewater into the Clark Fork River every day? Does that mean that Smurfit-Stone was permitted by MT DEQ to dump up to 7,300,000,000 (7.3 TRILLION) gallons of wastewater into the Clark Fork River every year?!?

And to think how some politically-connected "sportsmen's" groups and supposed environmental groups like Montana Wilderness Association, Montana Trout Unlimited and the National Wildlife Federation fought to keep the Smufit-Stone paper mill open by lobbying for passage of Sen Tester's mandated National Forest logging bill. So, let's see, they fought for more Clark Fork River pollution and more public lands logging. Wow.

The M2Green people have seemed shady since the day they rolled into town. I remember doing some google searchers on some of M2Green's other investments (which ironically included buying up more old Smurfit-Stone sites) and it seemed as if broken promises and questionable dealings were common.

In that light, it's no surprise that M2Green has also not paid $463,370 in delinquent property taxes to Missoula County.
