Re: “Montana gets into the megaload business

I am curious as to where Lauren will find qualified tradespeople to build their Mods. I am a farm boy and I think very highly of farmers' ability to be jacks of all trades. I, too, am a jack of all trades but I am a master of one, pipefitter. I have worked in numerous modyards. Farmers don't belong there.

Re: “A test for Plan B

All I can say is that I see huge lawsuits coming out of this. Parents of children under the age of 18 have a right to know what kind of medication there child is taking.

Re: “Writers On The Range

Laura Paskus,

Not to take away from this victim of war but I took part of your story and added a new twist to it. What do you think?

“When I became conscious, it was a dead base.” The college students in the room are silent as young sailor stands in front of them. It looks as though he wears light pink lipstick but that’s a lip balm to ease the pain. Up close, the scars around his mouth, neck and hands are clearly visible.

The morning Japanese pilots dropped bombs on his base called Pearl Harbor, 72 years ago, this sailor was 17. It was the first day off and he was going to Sunday school, and he and his shipmates were out on the street. “It was beautiful blue sky,” he says. “I looked at the sky, the airplane I saw, and I told my shipmates next to me, ‘Look. That plane is so pretty.’”

“I saw things dropping,” he says, referring most likely to the bombs and torpedoes, which were dropped by Japanese war planes. “Next, a very strong wind knocked me down. Then, I black out.”

With a third of his body burned, he spent the next five days drifting in and out of consciousness in a school dormitory because the hospitals were full with other wounded and he was not expected to live, repeating his name and serial number and asking for a drink of water.

A group of American citizens, horrified by the unprovoked sneak attack and bombing of a U.S. base America declared war on the Empire of Japan.

Ok I’ll stop there. You see there are two sides to every story. We wont go into the Bataan Death March, the beheadings of US service men and citizens of the Philippines, forced labor camps or the massive rape and killings committed in China by the Empire of Japan.

“Why is America still making nuclear weapons?” It’s so other peaceful nations of the world will never have to suffer the crimes committed by the Empire of Japan or Adolf Hitler’s Germany during World War Two.

I do want to add that I believe war should only be a last resort and it’s never the fix all answer. I find your articles to be very bias and anti American. I wonder why you live here if you hate America so badly. You do realize these men and woman died for your freedoms. Is this the best you can do in there honor?

Re: “Lake County attorney pans poaching cases, investigator

Well it appears that if you don’t agree with a person’s post and call them goofy because they don’t have a clue on what they are writing about you get booted because of hurt feelings. Doesn’t change a thing because you’re not contributing to a solution but just yelling at the man and blaming everyone. What a goof.

Re: “Lake County attorney pans poaching cases, investigator

Cj,
You’re so narrow minded it funny. I just looked over your past post and truly got a laugh. Its people like you that keep all from coming to a reasonable conclusion on wildlife issues. You can’t seem to come to a reasonable conclusion or offer any value to the issue so you just blame the man. How easy it is to raise your fist and shout nothing of importance that will help. How childish.
Poaching is wrong and it destroys wildlife by keeping the births rates down on a species. Poachers should be prosecuted and if you have a prosecutor that will not file the changes you need to vote him or her out of office. Doesn’t the American way make you feel proud?
P.S. Writing in CAPS doesn’t make you right or get your word out to more people. Try educating yourself about an issue before you post. Also you might want to change your profile pic. It looks like you’re about to kick a cat.

Re: “Unsettling priorities

I'm speaking out for some common sense; the guys who had sex with brianna certainly took advantage of her vulnerability, but i feel that Brianna was also responsible. These young people are exposed to so much media garbage about being liked , fitting in etc. this girl absolutely went with it. She didn't deserve it but neither do the guys deserve "possible life in prison". The problem here is moral decay, parental detachment ( yes, i feel this mother and stepfather are detached from the daughter. Brianna needs a lot of help, as do the young men. they all have their own involvement in this.

Re: “Water woes

Air we breathe is being sold to corporate polluters. Private Equity firms have already bought 300 public utilities and nothing will stop them but we the people and the majority is still asleep! Where are those minute men and those gun rights and constitutional activists? Why aren't they raising hell about this?

Re: “Lake County attorney pans poaching cases, investigator

Re: “Second Sight

Having known Gary for well over a decade, I am certain he can explain to you the reason the "Tea Party" movement exists, the way to understand it and how to create unity between extreme factions on all sides of nearly any political hot button issue.

He's among the most unique people I've ever known in that regard. He grows flowers, gardens, built his home to be energy efficient, feeds deer in his yard, loves his dog Lea like family, raised amazing children.

Yet he is NOT a man to be trifled with in Helena. If the legislature attempts to harm Gary's district, they are screwed and some heads will roll over it. He's not a politician. He's a Montanan American. And district 99 is HIS HOME TURF.

His opponent can't say much, if any, of what I just said about herself.

Re: “Second Sight

"open-minded", what's wrong with a TEA Partier? You picked the wrong screen name. It should have been "pompous idiot". You don't seem very "open-minded" to us. Marbut is no TEA Partier, but I'd still vote for him even if he was, because he's a well informed Montanan who cares about ALL of the issues facing this State. I've seen him in action at our legislature and he gets things done. He knows the ropes there and he communicates well. Dudik and her husband are both hard core communists. Lord knows we don't need any more of those beasts in our legislature. I'll vote for Marbut, someone who believes in the Liberties and Freedoms Montanans deserve.

Re: “Second Sight

Ya know, I took a women's gun safety class from Marbut. He's extremely professional, yet approachable...a very knowledgeable guy in many topics, and will say so when he doesn't know. I don't live in his district, but maybe he's worth a shot...as long as he's NOT a Tea Partier in disguise.

Re: “Second Sight

All of Montana would benefit if a liberty activist like Gary Marbut got elected.

Re: “Second Sight

I'd love to see Mr. Marbut debate Ms. Dudik on the key issues important to District 99 voters. He's lived in 99 his entire life, and if I am correctly informed she has never lived in the district. If he can match or defeat her with ideas, reason and logic in a debate, the carpetbagger doesn't have a prayer.
