Re: “Governor Bullock prepares to commit legicide

Ok, my bad. I should not have mentioned incestuous relationships even though they are out there, and girls are being impregnated, and I should have said "people" and not "men" because there are some truly uninformed women out there also. And Dan, really? Life begins across a crowded room? From now on I'm not making eye contact with ANYONE. It could kill me. Literally.

Re: “Governor Bullock prepares to commit legicide

In regards to HB 595, I just cannot believe that the men who are running things in the House are really, truly ready to throw women back into the dark ages. What are you gentlemen going to do when YOUR daughter, wife, niece, is raped and impregnated by a monster? I like your column Dan, but come on....across a crowded room life begins? From now on I'm not making eye contact with ANYONE. It could kill me. Literally.

Re: “Governor Bullock prepares to commit legicide

Wow. I just cannot believe that the MEN who are running things really, truly, want to send women back into the dark ages. What are you gentlemen going to do when YOUR daughter, niece, wife, or the incestuous relationship you are now hiding, is raped and impregnated by a monster....? I like your column Dan, but come on, really? HB 595 needs to be rejected and put in the trash can where it belongs.

Re: “Governor Bullock prepares to commit legicide

Right, we are not all Christians. Get involved...good idea. Think I'll call the legislators today. No wait they're gone. What's today? Maybe I'll call Congress? No wait...they're gone. And here I thought there was separation of church and state. " illegalise sperm"? What a novel idea! But then I wonder how transgender men will get their "wives" pregnant?

Re: “Governor Bullock prepares to commit legicide

Santamonious blather award. When are you people going to figure out we are not all Christians and we have separation of church and state. But hey I heard Syrian refugee children could use some help being saved. You could sign-up for that and actually make a difference. You know because they are non fetus form children in immediate peril and suffering.

Oh what's that I hear? Crickets? Yea that's what I thought. Save it- no pun intended.

Re: “Governor Bullock prepares to commit legicide

The #1 cause of abortion is sperm. Why don't you male republicans ever propose legislation to illegalise sperm? It's the man's fault it gets up in those Fallopian tubes in the first place. Why is it the ladies are always getting blamed for the wanton infiltration of the jizz? Grow up for cripesake!

Re: “To save wildlife, humans better start sharing

Stephen ~ Your essay deserves to be plastered on the front page of every newspaper, on every online social media site, in every school. In short, everywhere. Not only in America but worldwide. I am so glad that you listed climate change last, because that is not what is destroying the planet's species. My only concern is that your essay is really an epitaph for wildlife, not a call to action. Sigh.

Re: “Is it cool to fill the state's coffers from the pockets of the poor?

Family court makes more poor people by filling the pockets of lawyers than the tabacco industry by far and after the lawyers intentionally create chaos against you so they can take all your money you become a ward of the state on life support so it's a double whammy.

Somebody should do a reality article on the legal abuses by lawyers in family court causing legal abuse syndrome and costing tax payers every day that's 100x or more greater damage to the state of Montana than the tobacco taxes.

Less poor people would smoke if judges stopped letting lawyers in family court run amuck and internal tionally destroy people's lives do they can have better scotch and dinners out.

Re: “Is it cool to fill the state's coffers from the pockets of the poor?

Hi, I am a visiting researcher from India. Let me share the India story on Tobacco here. India has a huge tobacco problem, both smoked and chewed varieties. India also has huge taxes on tobacco and this item figures almost annually on the tax-hike section in the budget. But, as we moved into the 21st century, we have encountered much less smokers on the roads than we previously did (sadly, the number of smokers keeps increasing). The reduction in public smoking is the result of a concerted effort. Every pack of cigarette needs to carry a health hazard warning covering 40% of the pack's front. All movie-goers watch warnings and awareness clips on the hazards of tobacco. Above all, there is a nationwide ban on public smoking. The logic is that, unlike other habits, smoking causes cancer and other health hazards, not just for the smoker, but also those around him/her. The family especially the kids at home are the worst affected. If a tax hike reduces a person's cigarette consumption by 30 packs a year, then it should be welcomed from the health perspective. But the tax money thus acquired should be spent on awareness and rehabilitation programs.

Re: “Zinke didn't, but hunters can still choose to protect wildlife

Banning lead bullets doesn't protect wildlife. Like when lead shot was banned in duck and geese hunting, what followed was inferior shot, that was lighter, and therefore had less energy. This caused many wounded birds that could not be harvested.

It also doesn't protect human health. The portion of the meat that is damaged by the bullet is cut away - its not good to eat because of the trauma of the wound. Any bullet fragments go away with this damaged flesh.

Finally, what we are really talking about is an 11th hour regulation by the previous administration. It stands to reason all that crap gets a "reset" with a new administration. If the idea had merit, it would have been done early in the administration not left like passed gas before leaving the room.

There is no evidence that lead ammo is toxic to wildlife.

Re: “Zinke didn't, but hunters can still choose to protect wildlife

I found it ridiculous that Zinke's proclamation said that restrictions on leaded ammo would lead to restricted access to our public lands. What? What happens when these public lands are closed, period, because of the poisoning of the public waters? Or maybe his grandchildren will experience lead poiusoning? Unleaded ammo has been used for quite awhile, no problem. Thanks for the shun, Stinke Zinke, in regards to helping out our National Parks in your former state of Montana. You and your VA overhaul wife can stay in DC or southern Cali and never come back.
