Re: “Etc.

I have a feeling in 2018 Democrats will tell their $14 an hour canvassers not to collect ballots.

Re: “Etc.

Totally laughable...I wonder what kind of lawyering she did in San Diego? Immigration rights??

Re: “Etc.

Don't vote for Zinke. Vote for Denise Juneau.
Zinke's wife's comment makes me ill. Ryan is for sale and wants a cabinet position with Trump.

Re: “Etc.

And then we have head lice in schools. What else is in store for the "welcoming" Garden City?

This may have the makings of another 1973 Wounded Knee affair.

Re: “Etc.

I heard today that the protesters in North Dakota chained themselves to the construction equipment. That's the beginning of the end - the feds or the state or law enforcement will move in.

I figured the they'd wait a bit longer, until the media forgot about this story. I just don't see it turning out like it did in '96 with the Kootenai. That tribe was able to win, I don't see those at Standing Rock winning.

What is the plan to win?

Re: “Etc.

Greg's right. You have to build a party - a movement - from the ground up, not the top down. That's been the failing of the Greens so far : little of no ground game. OTH, the reactionaries had a long range strategic plan to take over the repuglikan party, starting in the late 70s or early 80s by stealthily getting themselves installed on local school boards, and then working their way up from there.

Re: “Etc.

We know neither Stein nor Johnson will be in the debates...unless they poll 15%. I don't see that happening.

I also don't see the MT Green Party going anywhere. Are you going to run candidates in Missoula, for the legislature in 2018, say? How are they going to win against Democrats?

They're not. So there'll be no Green Party members in any elected offices, and because of that the party will fade to obscurity.

Or did you have another idea of what might happen?

Re: “Etc.

The plane is merely an opening salvo to a much harder blow. Dig deeper, Indy, peel the onion. There are many layers here.

Re: “Etc.

Brian Schweitzer built his political career on busing Montana seniors to Canada to buy their drugs.

Whose political career will be built with the work they do ferrying medicine to Montana from Washington?

Horse racing and a Beerfest with just a few beers - those are some things that Missoulians ask for and it's not hard to deliver.

Re: “Etc.

We need hundreds of more police. One on every corner both at the city of Missoula and the University all on rotation so no one gets too comfortable. Do you know how many pedophiles judges are helping to get off? how many rapists are getting deferred and suspended sentences? Our children are no longer safe with the bleeding hearts working so hard to put them in danger. We need more police.

Re: “Etc.

If the police force didn't need the new officers, why are they asking for them?

If they're not asking for the new officers because of the downtown transient problem, then what are they asking them for?

Re: “Etc.

Can someone please explain to me how this Democratic attempt to block access is any different from Gianforte's attempt to block access?

Or does blocking access not include towing your vehicle while you're enjoying public lands?

Maybe it should.

Re: “Etc.

We should talk more about the failures of the Southgate Mall's management, especially considering we're giving them $7 million in taxpayer money.

What's to stop the mall from failing spectacularly again next year, leaving us with empty skies on July 4th?

Terrible, just terrible.

Re: “Etc.

Did anyone catch the Montana Public Radio piece on the Northern Rockies Wilderness bill?


"The Montana Wilderness Association declined our invitation for a taped interview." - Montana Public Radio

That pretty much says it all, doesn't it? I mean, with a staff of 24 people, including a beefy communications/PR team, the Montana Wilderness Association couldn't even get on air with Montana Public Radio to let the people of Montana know their opinions about the Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act, a bill that would essentially protect the remaining roadless wildlands in our region and also protect important wildlife corridors?!?

Fact is, the Montana Wilderness Association these days operates best in the shadows, outside the public eye, where they can control the message, hand-pick the messengers and just host dog-n-pony show events where they know they will never be asked the tough questions or be held accountable.

Of course, one irony here is that the Montana Wilderness Association has been working closely with their "timber partners" from the Montana Wood Products Association and some timber mill owners and managers to dramatically increase logging on America's National Forests in Montana in exchange for some very small pieces of Wilderness protection.

The public can get more detailed information about the Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act (including detailed maps) here:

It's also worth pointing out that NREPA has 7 co-sponsors in the U.S. Senate, while the House version of NREPA, which was re-introduced last year, currently has 37 co-sponsors.
