Re: “"Montucky" offends

Good lord, it seems like people these days are offended so easily. I mean, WHO CARES?! In fact, the term Montucky does not have anything to do with Kentucky. It's just a slang term like Pennsyltucky, slang for Pennsylvania. Get off your period already and lighten up!

Re: “Callous comments

footloose should have to tell the truth or not be printed. Time and again someone in their organization puts out a lie on a weekly basis to get votes on their ballot box biology which should be illegal in the Montana constitution as it is no way to follow the North American plan that has brought all the wild life, including wolves, to a viable population throughout the country. Some folks think it is legal to allow their dogs to chase game animals, horses, etc., they also don't know it is the law to either have them on a leash if they are not trained to mind and be in your immediate control. These same people run their dogs on wintering deer and elk in closed area because they think they have a right to break the law. I for one will not let someone from a sterile land as Germany, who lives in the Bitteroot tell me and the F&G how to handle our states wildlife

Re: “Unnecessary fear

“Over 50” is a small exaggeration. In 2012-13 MFWP reported 50 dogs caught and 26 of those were at large. Another 4 were with owners trespassing on private land. According MFWP 2013-14 reports that number dropped nearly in half to 26. With MFWP estimated 50,000 traps you have a .05% chance of your pet being caught in a trap. It is your own fear and the misinformed information from the anti-trappers that is keeping you off of public lands. “Montana has a proud history of sharing public lands”, but your animal rights activist group wants to destroy that history based off of fear and misdirected lies.

Re: “Moron manifesto

What a perfect juxtaposition in this week's "voices." An entertaining, articulate, and meaningful challenge to stop marginalizing alternate points of view as moron talk; followed by a diatribe, written by an elected official, who declares (in his FIRST SENTENCE) that any and all who identify as Democrats are morons. Thank you Tim Petersen for speaking up. Thank you Bob Lake for proving Tim's point.
