Thank you George Price and Indian People's Action for organizing against the megaloads and the tar sands blight upon the Earth.
Great letter pointing out the hypocrisy of the Obama Administration.

Be sure you test those cats for ALL of the following diseases, or I hope the recipient of one of them that you adopt-out sues you so bad you never recover from it.
These are just the diseases these invasive species vermin cats have been spreading to humans, not counting the ones they spread to all wildlife. THERE ARE NO VACCINES against many of these, and are in-fact listed as bio-terrorism agents. They include: Afipia felis, Anthrax, Bartonella (Rochalimaea) henselae, Bergeyella (Weeksella) zoohelcum, Campylobacter Infection, Cat Scratch Disease, Chlamydia psittaci (feline strain), Cowpox, Coxiella burnetti Infection (Q fever), Cryptosporidium Infection, Cutaneous larva migrans, Dermatophytosis, Dipylidium Infection (tapeworm), Hookworm Infection, Leptospira Infection, Giardia, Neisseria canis, Pasteurella multocida, Plague, Poxvirus, Rabies, Rickettsia felis, Ringworm, Salmonella Infection, Scabies, Sporothrix schenckii, Toxocara Infection, Toxoplasmosis, Trichinosis, Visceral larva migrans, Yersinia pseudotuberculosis. [Centers for Disease Control, July 2010] Bovine Tuberculosis, Sarcosporidiosis, Flea-borne Typhus, Tularemia, and Rat-Bite Fever can now also be added to that list.
Yes, "The Black Death" (the plague) is alive and well today and being spread by people's CATS. People have already died from cat-transmitted plague in the USA. For a fun read, one of hundreds of cases, Google for: Cat-Transmitted Fatal Pneumonic Plague
Oh, by the way, you did know, didn't you, that giving a rabies shot to a cat that already has rabies does not cure it of rabies? Google for: RABID KITTEN ADOPTED WAKE COUNTY (for just one example of hundreds of rabid cats adopted from outdoors). A vetted cat can STILL transmit rabies if it was harvested from unknown living conditions with an unknown vaccination history. May one of those cats you adopt-out have rabies too. Is your liability insurance in excess of $10M? Either quarantine them for 6 or more months at your OWN expense (as required by national and international law), or euthanize them. Those are your only 2 options to be relatively certain you are not handing rabies to someone. Isn't reality fun?
Due to TNR practices (trap, neuter, re-abandon), cats are now the #1 domesticated animal to transmit rabies to humans (the cats testing positive after a bite, scratch, or attack). This is why the CDC has now given the following conclusion and warnings on all TNR practices for idiots that don't know how rabies vaccines work.

Cats' most insidious disease of all, their Toxoplasma gondii parasite they spread through their excrement into all other animals. This is how humans get it in their dinner-meats, cats roaming around stockyards and farms (herbivores can contract this parasite in no other way). This is why cats are routinely destroyed around gestating livestock or important wildlife by shooting or drowning them. So those animals won't suffer from the same things that can happen to the unborn fetus of any pregnant woman. (Miscarriages, still-births, hydrocephaly, and microcephaly.) It can make you blind or even kill you at any time during your life once you've been infected. It becomes a permanent lifetime parasite in your mind, killing you when your immune system becomes compromised by disease or chemo and immunosuppressive therapies. It can last over a year in any soils or waters and not even washing your hands or garden vegetables in bleach will destroy the oocysts. Contrary to cat-lickers' self-deceptive myths, a cat can become reinfected many times during its life and spread millions of oocysts each time. It's now linked to the cause of autism, schizophrenia, and brain cancers; as well as increasing the suicide rate in women almost 2-fold even though they've never suffered from any mental or emotional health issues previously. This parasite is also killing off rare and endangered marine-mammals along all coastlines from cats' T. gondii oocysts in run-off from the land, the oocysts surviving even in saltwater.
Its strange life cycle is meant to infect rodents. Any rodents infected with it lose their fear of cats and are attracted to cat urine.

Cats attract rodents to your home with their whole slew of diseases (like The Plague from rats and fleas, many people have died from cat-transmitted Plague in the USA already, it is alive and well and being spread by cats today). If you want rodents in your home keep cats outside of it to attract diseased rodents to your area. I experienced this phenomenon (as have many others), and all rodent problems disappeared after I shot and buried every last one of hundreds of cats on my lands.
Another interesting experiment. They wanted to find out if dogs could possibly transmit cat-shat Toxoplasma gondii oocysts. A dog infected with T. gondii from a source-cat cannot. That stage of the parasite's life-cycle is 100% dependent on cat-physiology as its primary reproductive host. But if dogs ingest oocyst-laden cat-feces then dogs can pass the oocysts produced by cats & their common brain-hijacking parasite.

It is interesting to note: That these Toxoplasma gondii oocysts shed by cats can even survive the hydrochloric stomach acids for the duration that they remain in a mammal's digestive tract. And then they doubt my words when I tell them of the studies where they found that this parasite's oocysts (seeds) can even survive washing your hands in bleach. You could wash your hands and garden vegetables in hydrochloric acid and digestive enzymes for the same duration that food remains in an animal's digestive tract and even that won't destroy it. Your hands would be dissolved into a digestible pulp long before you could kill the Toxoplasma gondii oocysts.
Yeah, "basic hygiene" is going to keep your kids safe from going blind sometime during their life, becoming autistic, or die if they ever require any immunosuppressive therapies during their lifetime if they had ever played in a sandbox that a neighbor's cat has defecated in.
The TNR CON-GAME
FACT: Trap & Kill failed because cats cannot be trapped faster than they exponentially breed out of control.
FACT: Trap, Neuter, & Re-Abandon (TNR) is an even bigger abject failure because these man-made ecological disasters cannot be trapped faster than they exponentially breed out of control, and they also continue to cruelly annihilate all native wildlife (from the smallest of prey up to the top predators that are starved to death), and the cats continue to spread many deadly diseases that they carry today — FOR WHICH THERE ARE NO VACCINES AGAINST THEM. Many of which are even listed as bioterrorism agents. (Such as Tularemia and The Plague — Yes, people have already died from cat-transmitted plague in the USA. No fleas nor rats even required. The cats themselves carry and transmit the plague all on their own.)
FACT: THERE IS ABSOLUTELY _NOTHING_ HUMANE ABOUT TNR. Nearly every last TNR’ed cat dies an inhumane death by road-kill, from cat and animal attacks, environmental poisons, starvation, dehydration, freezing to death, infections, eaten from the inside-out by parasites, etc. And if very very lucky humanely shot to death or re-trapped and drowned (the two most common methods employed on all farms and ranches to protect their gestating livestock’s offspring and valuable native wildlife dying from cats’ Toxoplasmosis parasites). This doesn’t begin to count the thousands of defenseless native animals that cats skin alive and disembowel alive for their daily and hourly play-toys. And pitting cat against cat to fight-to-the-death for territory is ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERENT than those who run criminal dog-fight rings to see who wins. They spend YEARS in jail. IT IS A HIGHLY PUNISHABLE CRIME TO FORCE *ANY* DOMESTICATED ANIMALS TO FIGHT EACH OTHER FOR THEIR VERY SURVIVAL.
FACT: The only difference in destroying cats immediately and humanely instead of trapping, sterilizing, then releasing them to an inhumane death and forcing them to fight-to-the-death for survival; is that money isn’t going into Becky Robinson's Alley-Cat-All-Lies pocket, or an HSUS or SPCA board-member’s pocket, veterinarian’s pocket, cat-food company CEO’s pocket, or a drug-company CEO’s pocket. And that’s the ONLY difference! Support yet another organization that exploits and perpetuates the suffering of animals for their own personal financial gain, then try to sleep well at night.
FACT: These manipulative, deceptive, and deceitful TNR proponents are now clipping cats ears ONLY. WITHOUT vaccinations nor sterilizing them. They do this to save money and protect their outdoor hoarded cat colonies from being trapped and euthanized by the state because the clipped-ear shows officials that they have been sterilized and vaccinated. Why pay $140 for each cat and all that time when just a trap and a simple snip of scissors on each one can also protect their hoarded cats from being destroyed? (I have absolute proof of this.)
FACT: Cats are a man-made (through selective breeding) invasive species. And as such, are no less of a man-made environmental disaster than any other caused by man. Cats are even worse than an oil-spill of continent-sized proportions. They not only kill off rare and endangered marine-mammals along all coastlines from run-off carrying cats’ Toxoplasma gondii parasites, they destroy the complete food-chain in every ecosystem where cats are found. From smallest of prey gutted and skinned alive for cats’ tortured play-toys, up to the top predators that are starved to death from cats destroying their ONLY food sources. (Precisely what cats caused on my own lands not long ago.)
FACT: Hunted To Extinction (or in this case, extirpation of all outdoor cats) is the ONLY method that is faster than a species like cats can exponentially out-breed and out-adapt to. Especially a man-made invasive species like these cats that can breed 2X-4X’s faster than any naturally occurring cat-species.
FACT: In _FOURTEEN_YEARS_ Alley Cat ALL-LIES branch of NYC have only reduced feral cats in their own city by 0.08% to 0.024% (as the months go on that percentage becomes more insignificant), allowing more than 99.92% to 99.976% to exponentially breed out of control. Here’s how Alley-Cat-ALL-LIES’ deceptive math works: If you TNR 4 cats and 3 get flattened by cars this translates to 75% fewer feral-cats everywhere. Alley Cat ALL-LIES of NYC can’t even reduce cats in their own city, yet they promote it as a worldwide solution. Then even bigger fools fall for it and promote it.
FACT: When researching over 100 of the most “successful” TNR programs worldwide, JUST ONE trapped more than 0.4%. Oregon’s 50,000 TNR’ed cats (the highest rate I found) is 4.9% of all ferals in their state. Yet, by applying population growth calculus on the unsterilized 95.1% they will have trapped only 0.35% of all cats in their state sometime this year. Less than 0.4% is a far cry from the required 75%-85% to be the least bit effective.
FACT: Their mythical “vacuum effect” is a 100% LIE. A study done by the Texas A&M University proved that any perceived “vacuum” is just the simple case that CATS ATTRACT CATS. Get rid of them all and there are no cats there to attract more. I proved this myself by shooting and burying hundreds of them on my own lands. ZERO cats replaced them FOR FOUR YEARS NOW. If you want more cats, keep even one of them around, more will find you. That university study also found that sterilized cats very poorly defend any territory. Non-sterilized cats, being more aggressive, take over the sterilized cats’ resources (shelter & food if any). If there is any kind of “vacuum effect” at all, it is that sterilizing cats cause non-sterilized cats to restore the reproductive void.
FACT: During all this investigation I have discovered something that is unfaltering without fail. Something that you can bet your very life on and win every last time. That being — IF A TNR CAT-HOARDER IS TALKING THEN THEY ARE LYING. 100% guaranteed!
Lie much? You still have the cats. This means you still have all the original problems you complained about.
As a "regular", whatever that means, patron of Charlie's I think your criticism is basically an underhanded crock. One huge appeal of Charlie's is the atmosphere provided by the bartenders who seem to have a good time and do a great job making sure everyone else is having a good time as well. The same bartenders also provide some of the quickest service in town despite a very crowded bar on a Friday or Saturday night.
I love non-"plebeian" American roots music also but that doesn't mean I want to listen to it every night at Charlie's from 10 to 2.
Conway Twitty asked a better question "I wonder what she'll think about me leaving", my guess... I doubt they'll even notice you're gone.
From one of the "kids these days"
I felt like my above link to Mr. Shaws post was sinking to his level and I apologize. However I still feel
the need to rep Charlie's for Charlie's. I was sad to read his letter to the editor. Not only do I love my job at Charlie's, but I thoroughly enjoy being a patron, and have for years now. I would never in my wildest dreams disparage a place like CB's, no matter how entitled I might feel about "how it should be". Shame on you Michael Shaw, whomever you may be.
More importantly- to our amazing customers at CB's- we will continue to use your good vibes to dictate our jams! Look forward to more fun times!! We love you!
Michael Shaw you are a nut job and feel free to stay away from Charlie's sincerely, Everyone.
Sad about Charlie's or sad about Merle. You do the math. http://m.bigskypress.com/missoula/blogs/Post?basename=unfair-to-real-country-music&day=22&id=LettersToTheEditor&month=12&year=2011
Get with the times, man. Electronic music is where it's at! I just moved to Missoula from Portland and I'm very impressed with the downtown scene here. Its almost as hip as Portland. Bring back the techno DJs!!!!
I have been been a bartender for 23 years. Sometimes we have to play the music the crowd wants even if we do like it. Charlies Bar at night is a collage bar. The "kids" like what they like. You gotta play for the crowd not one.
First of all, Charlie's attracts a melting pot of people from all walks of life. The music in the back ground is simply just that, back ground. Folks go to Charlie's, and have for years to mingle with patrons new and old, share stories, and enjoy the second to non cocktails mixed by the best bar tenders in town. I don't know about you but the lonely day that I walk into Charlie's too grumpy to strike up conversations and all I can focus on is the back ground music of the new generations is the day I should find a different social light, such as bingo!
i dont know what this guy is talking about. i can remember back in the later 90's when charlies had techno DJ's live all the time. the pool tables (there were two then) were stacked down the hall way with their legs taken off and that whole back area was a dance floor. (fuck im gettin old) it was always jammed packed.
Lame and cowardly article. Chucks is a great spot with a positive, friendly local atmosphere. Is just a shame that the wonderful bartenders that work there have to put up with winers like this guy.
@Shandiell ...um "we regulars' I didn't realize I had to belong to a certain clique in order to patronize a bar. For somebody who appears to embrace diversity you certainly come off as small minded on the internet. If 'regular's like you don't have any 'authentic' bars to go to any more it's because of your self entitled attitude. anyways - The Palace is still a shit hole, it's dark, it smells, and worst of all the acoustics sucks. I'm not sure who or what you think has 'taken' this awful bar from you, but I assure you 'we' give it back glady.
Thirsty Thursdays at the Dollar were always a good way to get rid of the hangover from my Wasted Wednesday.
I heard they had a Jay's Upstairs reunion awhile ago. I was lucky enough to get into that place quite a few times in the early '00s. Jeez, I even lived above the Mo Club for 6 months.
Still, nothing in my mind can beat the old Top Hat. I was real saddened to learn that Steve Garr had died when I came back from China one summer.
Haven't been to the new place since it opened, even though I'm old friends with one of the cooks. I'm afraid it just would't be the same as I remembered it on so many Wednesday nights and afternoons with the curtains open.
The unsung hero of grime and grit is the Silver Dollar. A true gem!
Amen, said the congregation. We "regulars" only have so many authentic bars left in the downtown area. All we truly have is Charlie's, the Rhino, and the Union. The bro and Betty infestation has spread throughout, and it's sad. They took our Rose, our Palace, our Top Hat, our Al's and Vic's....what's next?
Right on! I've noticed too.
