Re: “The right plan

They aren't conservatives, they're reactionary extremists : BEWARE !

I wasn't aware that Montana had been annexed by Idaho and is now Idaho East. At least that's what it looks like. It appears that the "leaders" in you're legislature are certainly following Idaho's lead, stacking all the key positions within right wing ideologues; and look where it'll take you : Idaho is at or very near the bottom of the stack in virtually every category except pandering to the interests of Big Agriculture and other corporate interests. We're at or near the bottom in per-capita income, funding education, covering indigents' medical expenses, and on and on. About the only category Idaho leads the country in is the percentage of minimum wage workers (Of course, the corporations love that !).

Be careful. Idaho has had one party rule for decades, ever since Cecil Andrus left office. don't let it happen in Montana !

Re: “The right plan

I think moderate Republicans and centrist Democrats can find a lot of common values and even more projects to work on together. I don't think it's a worthwhile project to end the future of any particular faction, though. I tend to hope for more parties, not fewer.

Re: “The right plan

Democrats need to welcome the moderate Republicans with open arms. The GOP doesn't care about you, but we'll not only listen to the problems you have, but we'll find ways for you to bring back successes to your district.

When it comes to the conservatives, we'll do everything to stand in their way, as they've done to you. Join us in shaming them and furthering your political future while ending theirs.

Re: “Defuse the West

Cretin Hill, I was referring to National Forest and BLM lands. Sorry that didn't penetrate your thick skull, but there obviously is nothing inside it anyhow.

Re: “Truth seekers

It almost sounds to me like old Soviet-era purges.

Is it just coincidence, or are supes Apostle and Austin purging the principals in hopes of installing their cronies ? Curious minds want to know.

Re: “Defuse the West

in response to the un-named poster lacking a completed education and drooling misinformation concerning Federal lands in other states: please do your homework before allowing your fingers to get in front of your brain.

Re: “Defuse the West

Maybe Mr. Hill should consider moving to a state like New Jersey, Iowa, or Illinois, without either wolves or federal lands, where he wouldn't have to contend with "government thugs", or worry about any wildlife any more dangerous than perhaps an occasional fox or coyote, or maybe, at worse, the rare rabid skunk or bat.

Re: “Defuse the West

this is what happens when government thugs insist on forcing their agenda on us...much like with the wolves we got shoved down our throats. Unfortunately we don't see the State or Federal bureaucrats...only those men & women tasked with the job of choking us with their mandates.

Re: “Last defense

I did not find this piece (of_ _ _ _) a total waste of time. Who could get all the way through it? Not that it was a just a vainglorious attempt at a parody, but geez, Dan...if you want to learn about sentence structure and mechanics in order to make it halfway readable, go back to the second grade.

Re: “Snake eyes

Two things to charge Senate Indian Affairs Committee with. Just so they understand what a "Conflict of Interest" is all about.

1.Charge each member of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee who voted for Alberta Tar Sands to be sent through several Sovereign Nations and through the Interior boundaries of our United States with treason.

Treason: The crime of betraying one's country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government.

2. Charge each member with the Bad Man Clause of the Ft LaramieThe Bad Men clause of the 1868 Ft. Laramie Treaty.

The Bad Men clause provides:
“If bad men among the whites, or among other people subject to the authority of the United States,
shall commit any wrong upon the person or property of the Indians, the United States
will, upon proof made to the agent and forwarded to the Commissioner of Indian Affairs
at Washington City, proceed at once to cause the offender to be arrested and punished
according to the laws of the United States, and also reimburse the injured person for
the loss sustained.”

Article I, Section 6, of the U.S. Constitution authorizes compensation for Members of Congress “ascertained by law, and paid out of the Treasury of the United States.”

Re: “Snake eyes

When will you figure this out? Every piece of crap in Washington is bought and sold daily. It was simply this clowns turn to play a different card than the usual communist crap he deals out. It was a done deal and it was going to get a veto from the White House idiot anyway. Tester knew there were not enough votes!

Here is the truth of Keystone Pipeline. It is being shut down in Nebraska, the home of Warren Buffet. Warren owns the rail road bnsf and he gets to haul all of the oil on the rail. Warren gets $750,000.00 per train load to Port St. Charles, La. Warren gets less for the transport of the N.D. oil to the west coast. He alone is the greedy fool who has manipulated and most probably bribed Obama to keep the pipeline stalled.

All the while this crude oil is rolling on the ground on poorly maintained rails through communities endangering the lives of everyone near these trains. Our pipelines are filled to capacity, I know this because I haul oil from the field to rail or pipeline every night in N.D.

You will be glad to know that Warren puts much of his charitable funds towards abortion, sterilization and in general population control. You liberals should be proud of Warren!!!
