Re: “The challengers

Denise Juneau will be another D.C. politician tied at the hip with big money corporate donors. In that regard she's the exact same as Zinke.

People in Missoula will be interested to know that she took $10,000 from Carlyle via Off the Sidelines PAC.

I thought Carlyle was bad...we did sue them to get a water company, right?

But Juneau likes 'em.

I think that says it all about our corrupt system and the corrupt people that play in it.

I'll be leaving this race blank - there's no difference between Zinke and Juneau when you follow the money.

Re: “Priced to sell

When I see Strandberg I can't help but think of the further Moron-ization of Montana.

Re: “Refugees

Let's see how much these refugees from Africa enjoy biking and walking when they get "welcomed" by the Montana snow, ice and sub freezing temperatures.

When I hear Salt Lake I can't help but think of the further Mormonization of Montana.

Re: “Health care

Yet another example of America's broken medical system. We can't even take care of people outside cities.

Or is a year without a clinic acceptable?

We could fix healthcare in this country.

We choose not to. We do that with our votes, throwing them away on D's and R's that never change anything, except when it benefits the corporations that bribe them with campaign donations.

Re: “The lost delegate

As far as Bullock not attending, we all know why he didn't attend...he didn't want to lose the Bernie vote in his run for governor. After all Bernie won MT by large margins. It's all in black and white....
On another note since the convention was mentioned...
I want to say Carol Williams is full of it...and even though she was voted in as the delegation chair in a show of unity, she in no way tried to unite the delegation in Philadelphia. She actually tried everything in her power to prevent unity...and there are a few specific examples I will not disclose at this time. However these will be disclosed very soon.
It's about high time to tell the real story about the Montana HRC delegation and what happened at the DNC convention. I've heard from numerous reliable sources that it was very divided and the HRC delegates including Hill MT delegates were very divisive and rude to the MT Sanders delegates.

Re: “Under pressure

Lying? Are you serious? What if it were your child being abused by him, i bet you would not call him a liar then. This place for years has abused children and its disgusting. My husband went there clear back in 1977 and 1978. He was there two years and I have been told some of the horrifying stories that he had been put thru. Some of these names listed here are some of the names he mentioned to me. You can hear the shakiness in his voice when he tells me what he was put thru and how was woke up every morning. And for a man who is now 54 years old and still traumatized from that place is awful. So F**K you and your dumb shit about Bob and his false truth bullshit.

Re: “Racism on the Rez

God bless the media. Where the schools fail at indoctrination, the media picks up the slack. The kids almost got it right (seemed to agree...), now the media will make sure they get it right. It now "seems" that whites are on the receiving end of racism.

Re: “Racism on the Rez

"While most students seemed to agree the shirts were inappropriate, Vergeront recalls, they were more divided over whether it warranted the level of attention it received online and in the media." Well, no shi*t, if you are not on the receiving end of racism then you have absolutely no clue how it feels or how you would react. Plus the obvious fact that these kids' parents do absolutely NOTHING to enlighten them to the realities of standing in someone else's shoes. Point of fact..."What's Standing Rock?". Give me a break.

Re: “Finger on the trigger

Look up Preemption: Localities are specifically prohibited from passing any law,rule, ordinance etc etc that concerns carrying firearms. Period. Doesn't matter if they ban CC or OC, they are not allowed to ban either one. If they pass such a law, they are in for a field day of lawsuits.

Re: “Strength in numbers

Absolute nonsense. What makes a real estate agent a conservationist? What credentials does Mike Bader possess that make him more knowledgeable than Grizzly Bear specialists that work for the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the US Forest Service? In fact, so far as i can tell none of the opponents to the Marshall Woods project that are identified possess any scientific education that would qualify them as conservationists. Apparently the left-leaning media considers anyone who opposes any silvicultural activity as a conservationist.

Re: “Home alone

Low Pay.
Too many government regulations.
The need for more staff.
The hassle all this creates.

With those kinds of problems it's no surprise we have this mess.

What will be surprising is if we can get out of it. We know the GOP-controlled legislature won't pass Bullock's Early Edge, let along an expanded program.

So this problem will persist. It's just another reason why so many families, and thus businesses, choose not to come to Montana.

We're backwards.

Re: “Community radio

Steve if you are west or southwest of town (but not in the ocean)I will happily deliver. Please advise.

Re: “Community radio

175 feet of coax is keeping a LPFM off the air. So close, but so far away. I have about 200 feet of 7/8 coax I keep kicking and cussing at. If I was closer to Missoula, I would donate it to the cause.

Re: “Comeback trail

What exactly does "'revamped and retooled' her campaign accordingly." mean?

We know money won't allow her to win - she raised $38,000 to Bob Lake's $26,000 in the 2012 race.

This year she has about $2,300 in the bank, according to her last report. Lake has $2,900.

Besides a lot of radio ads and mailers, I don't see what Gutsche is doing with that money.

So...what's the strategy to win this year? I saw more Gutsche signs during the primary than I do now.

I'm not feeling confident of a win here. With lower turnout because of no Bernie on the ticket, gosh, I'll be surprised if Dems wins this.
