Here's a pretty ironic and telling update to the original Indy Etc.
Lawsuit from Missoula City-County Health Board, the Missoula Valley Water Quality District, the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes and the Clark Fork Coalition blasts Stone-Manning's DEQ for 'absurd' Clark Fork River pollution permit
This new position only helps Montana, giving us a stronger voice on the issues important to our state: rural healthcare, postal reform, management of our public lands, veterans issues, the list goes on. Tester has never been on to compromise Montana's values and there's no reason to this he will now with his new position.
Looks like you were ahead of the main MT media on making this connection, after the news Tester will be heading up the DSCC today. Good job.
Moderate, my ass ! Tester is just yet another DINO, of which the senate has about 40 too many of, which IMO is why they lost so badly nationally last week.
Lot of people in Missoula didn't vote this year. Lot of absentee ballots not returned.
Why is that?
A leopard never changes its spots, nor a tiger its stripes.
Once an unethical, greedy, money-grubbing scumbag,
always an unethical, greedy, money-grubbing scumbag.
This week Coca-Cola closed their bottling plant in Great Falls, costing 50 people their jobs. Thank God Denny's there to bring them BK - I know that's what they've always dreamed of.
Marijuana is currently a $120 million a year business in this state. Craft brewing, by comparison, is $60 million.
When you don't regulate markets you have problems like this. And I'm sorry, but when something is illegal there's no regulations. You can say a law is a regulation, but when 10% to 12.21% of Montanans are getting high each month...well?
Independent reporters - you're getting paid, why not come up with a report on how many people are in Montana prisons for pot. Look up how many are in that crowded Missoula jail. Did that have something to do with that guy getting 3 years probation for forcing his girlfriend to cut that tattoo off her?
Do some reporting, will ya? Or else people like me will just continue to show you up:
Who said one voice doesn't matter?
It just doesn't make a lot of sense to me to bring infectious diseases and the people carrying them to Montana. This is where you'd go in the movies when things get out of hand.
But in the movies there's always a few stupid scientists that mess everything up, poke themselves, or generally destroy civilization.
Remember, though, these guys have PhD's so they can do no wrong.
Clark is just a poooooor loser !
One is, the other is poor loser. Indicative of what is wrong internally in the Sherriff's office.
It's unfortunate we live in a country where these things have to happen.
And these guys are law enforcement officers !
In our anthropocentric paradigm, we all too often underestimate the intelligence of "lesser" (?) animals.
Which reminds me of one of my favorite Calvin and Hobbes ---
Calvin : "I just sharpened my fingernails so they're like claws !"
Hobbes : "But mine are retractable."
Calvin (with defeated look on his face ) : "Sigh ! No wings, no prehensile tail, no compound eyes...sigh !"
Funny and not so funny, these arguements were the same ones when they were trying to decide of blacks should be allowed in white bathrooms.....
I think this transgender thing is just stupid. If you’re a man, you’re a man. If you’re a woman, you’re a woman. No law, city ordnance or crying in the papers is ever going to change that. It’s just political pandering to the masses.
I agree, alf - if no one is hurting me, I don't care. If they're hurting themselves I don't care. Let people do what they want so long as it doesn't hurt others.
It's not just in Billings, Greg. Ignorance breeds predjudice, and unfortunately they seem to be universal human traits. Ignorant, prejudiced people are everywhere. Language, nationality, race, economic or social status seem to make no difference.
Why can't we just live and let live ? Our gender, gender identification, or sexual preferences are no body's business except ours and our partner's.
Why don't we just say it? People in Billings are homophobic, hateful, and on the wrong side of history.
