Re: “Mall rats

In response to erlyirn's post : It's probably true that in every more or less mid-sized city in the country with a fairy large college or university the large labor force (students, mostly unskilled or semiskilled) drive down the average wage, and at the same time, ironically force prices up -- not just rents, but all prices. It happens in Bozeman as well as Msla, and in Eugene, where I went to school, Corvallis, Moscow-Pullman, Chico and Eureka, CA, where my wife went, and on and on.

Re: “Not giving in

The same can be said for the Mountain States Legal Foundation and its hacks, at least two of whom have been appointed Secretary of the Interior by (naturally) repuglikan pretzeldunces : The evil James Watt, appointed by Bonzo Raygun, and the equally vile, but slightly lower profile, Gale Norton, appointed by the incompetent idiot Shrubya Busch.

Re: “Not giving in

Oscar Wilde's often quoted remark, "They know the cost of everything and the value of nothing" certainly applies to Sidney Longwell

Re: “No comment

This is what corruption looks like. Don't act all surprised. Many of us have been talking about this for months or more. I wrote an article on my site before the June 2014 primary saying McDermott doesn't believe in freedom of speech. Obviously I was right.

Dealing with the Missoula Sheriff's Department is simple - if they arrest you, get a lawyer. They're so corrupt and have been sued so many times that this is the regular course of things. Don't worry about cost, just get one of the lawyers that's sued them successfully before and make sure your costs are paid for.

This is what happens when you have corruption.

Re: “Mall rats

On MSN this morning as if those in Missoula didn't know already.

26. Missoula, Montana

26. Missoula, Montana

City cost of living: 96.5

State cost of living: 94.2

City median rent paid: $777

City median household income: $48,077

While all three metropolitan areas in Montana have a higher regional price parity than the state’s, Missoula is the most expensive. However, the higher cost of living in Missoula is not offset by higher pay. The average Missoula resident earns just under $36,000 annually, about $2,700 less than statewide income per capita. While the cost of living across Montana did not increase from the previous year, the relative cost of goods and services in Missoula went up slightly during the same time period.
