Re: “Dark reality

Funny or maybe sad that people like Grijalva and Thompson just parrot the party line mandated from Obama (who do all the Fed agencies & non elected agents answer to? Like Jeh Johnson? Loretta Lynch?). Grijalva and Thompson mention little to nothing regarding the Islamist Jihadist terrorists threat until the last paragraph. So apparent that the real threat to the left, top down, bottom up, are the patriotic Americans who challenge and stand up to the Feds and local govt. Yep these so branded anti-govt " domestic terrorists:" groups, as opposed to lone nuts, are(new buzz words) "homegrown militia". LOL Homegrown aka American? As opposed to what? The foreign grown Islamic and second generation born in America Islamic terrorists?

Again why didn't the FBI, having the info they had thanks to the Fusion Centers, set Mateen up as they did with the occupiers of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge? Do they think animals are worth being more protected than human beings? Or protecting the govt? Look up Kriss Wolf and Judi Bari just to name 2 .

Re: “Dark reality

Somehow it's OK if the faceless, nameless government has all the guns, all the power, and can make all the decisions on how our land should be used, including selling off huge swathes of it to other countries, brokered for big bank by the slimy deal makers, Dems and GOP, in the Congress and the White House.

Yet, it's a horrible threat to all our safety if normal people exercise their voices and their natural rights to use the land as our Founders intended. Oops, I said the dirty word: Founders, which to the authoritarian Left (not liberals at all,) is synonymous with "terrorists" and "racists."

Re: “Under a new roof

With Engen admitting last week to change the status quo and with no shame to raise taxes it is his ten year affordable housing/homeless plan that has taken a hit. Land lords will not take the hit as all @#$% rolls down hill.

Re: “Mistaken identity

Let's be clear. Warren did not use her imagined Cherokee ancestry to get any job or tenure. She was recruited for a tenured position at Harvard twice, having turned it down the first time. She also answered "no" on earlier application questions about requesting special status or assistance. She is certainly open to fair criticism but she did not exploit or game the systems designed to open opportunities for Native Americans or any "minorities."

Re: “Dark reality

Last week we had a group of protesters occupy a federal building in Washington, disrupt business, and all the while they were protected by gun-toting men. They get paid $175,000 a year too.

Yep, they're congressman and women and their little protest stunt of a few hours might have driven up donations to their party, but I doubt it did much more.

Oh, it did show that if you're politically well-connected then you can engage in domestic disturbances and protests and get off just fine.

It's just when you're a regular schmuck like those idiots in Oregon that you'll run into problems.

Great country, huh? Hey, we made it this way.

Re: “Justice of the peace

Used to be 'let-em-out Louden' was the joke of the town. Now, with the rash of inmates being let out of the jail that are then committing sexual assault on innocent people, it seems like he was great.

What is Holloway's plan to turn around the abysmal showing of our Missoula justice system lately?

Oh, and it's been weeks now since the 114-page jail report came out.

Was anything going to happen with that or will it follow the 2005 jail study and just ask for more studies (it does, by the way).…

Re: “Under a new roof

It seems to me that Missoula's housing authority is a convenient way to reward favors and political patronage to those that toe the line. I found two Democrats that had some very interesting jobs when they applied for low income housing. Then they sold that house to another well-connected Democrat.

Smells funny to me, but with the same kind of people in the offices of enforcement, who's going to do anything about it? No one, and you'll pay the bill.…

Re: “No argument here

While do I have to give you some credit for actually watching this event, you lose all credibility when you say that Montana has a flat job market. Unemployment in Montana has been at a very low rate during the Bullock term. While some high profile closures have recently been announced, what would you or anyone else for that matter have the Governor do to force a private company to keep its facilities open when they perceive them to be uneconomical?

Similarly, the second problem you cite relates to the petulant actions of the Tea Party wing of the Republican Party. Aside from being in office to veto their nutty bills and urging the electorate to vote these rascals out, again what would you do, if elected governor, to stop the duly elected politicians from being stupid?

Re: “Mistaken identity

Warren benefited so much from claiming Cherokee already through college and highschool which prompted her political career. Many things that have happened over the last 500+ years to our Turtle Island, lands were based on outright lies such as the invaders saying God sent them or man-made phrases such as manifest destiny and eminent domain, etc. The problem with people like Warren and this country is they rely on people forgetting reality, history, etc. Which is what keeps happening over and over. She will never say she is NOT Cherokee because in her settler mentality she stupidly believes she is Cherokee based on mere fairytale. Peace...from a full blooded Lakota.

Re: “Fort Missoula

There is not a single industrial or business endeavour in Western Montana that has not launched or been sustained without some form of government assistance.

Re: “Fort Missoula

They need a moose mascot to garner support for this taxpayer subsidized tourist attraction?

Why does the tourist industry need taxpayer hand-outs to prop-up its' industry?

Well, I guess this new regional ball park will also help jack up local real estate prices beyond the more than 2 1/2 times the average Missoula income can afford now; guess that is good thing're in city government, a real estate speculator, a developer, or have property to sell....the rest of us who were deceived into paying for and will forever be subsidizing this new tourist attraction....yeah, we got screwed!

Just a little research before one votes....

Supporting "Parks and Trails" I can get behind 100%. I like and use the parks and trails we have now, but a look into what that $42 million bond was actually for, it was easy to see that the "Parks and Trails" bond was a deception. So I voted against it. Unfortunately, too few who voted didn't researched what they were voting for.

So now, the people who have to scratch up that greater than 2 1/2 times the average local income to pay for housing, will now have to scratch up a bit more to subsidize:
The tourist industry.
The real estate industry.
The city coffers.
And last but not least, the developers.

Growth and development (progress) is an expensive endeavor, it appears, and as we can see in Missoula anyway, it is not a self-sustaining endeavor, it needs welfare assistance.

"Growth and development" {progress} -- locals get screwed out of their quality of life and any money they may be able to get their hands on.

Re: “Business decisions

its all about putting a stranglehold on americans freedom and they are suing the people with fear tactics to help them do it. Every time its hardware for anyone to buy a gun its that much easier for them to disarm us. The only reason we live in fear is because of the inadequacies of the government. They invade people that never invaded us and they wonder why people hate us? like thats our fault now? we have the right to bare arms folks because the more we are armed the less likely we will ever be invaded, less likely the government will ever try to control us and the less slickly the government will ever reach too far up our you know what. But if we keep letting them put fear into us because they're creating the fear to begin with then and only then we will lose our freedom liberty and eventually the right to per sue life and happiness. All that jazz is only because we the people are in charge but if you look at the writing on the wall THEY already think they are in charge. When I was a kid someone that received a tax payers check took orders from the people, now those same people not only take tax payers checks, but they also have better retirement, better protection, better insurance, better benefits and while we pay their salaries they give us orders??? wake up America we are losing and THEY are winning - these people are bought - owned - they take orders from THEM and do as THEY say not what WE THE PEOPLE SAY.

Take back the country by RATTING OUT every politician, every person collecting a tax payed check, anyone benefitting off of our country, our back, that isn't doing the right thing by us. FBI public corruption unit is your first pit stop, then the ODC if they are a lawyer and then go public by writing and sending all your proof to every local and national free press.

Clean house and maybe we will be free again because we're not anymore.

Re: “Under construction

"We want to have our own unique look and feel."
You can put all the makeup you want on that pig; it will still always be a pig!

"Look and feel"
No clue what is the soul, or what constitutes the soul of this place?
Is it something hidden behind a mask? Something fake; a facade?
Or is the soul of this place the kind of people we are, what we do to make ends meet, our interests, how recreate, and how we live here with each other and know each other.

Twenty some years ago I could take a walk downtown, in a park, in the Rattlesnake, up the Blackfoot, or out at the hot springs, and I would almost always know someone or at least recognize someone as someone I had at least seen before. all the hustle and bustle fast paced and often arrogant and aggressive speeding traffic....I don't know anyone in this town anymore, and those I would like to know....are washed-out, muted, by so many more coming and going restlessly looking for something they heard about, or read about in some trendy magazine.

All this growth may be a good short-term boost to some's economics, but what it has done to the soul of the place I have loved more than any other place I have known is really a sad thing. It's irreplaceable! It will never be again!

The city coffers get stuffed, but it's never enough; growth seems to constantly need taxpayer subsidies -- for some reason growth can't seem to sustain itself we who sacrifice our quality of life for this growth must also find and sacrifice any extra cash we may come up with as well.

The real estate speculators and developers get rich, and we are left with a soulless gentrified shell that some want us to believe is progress.
Something needs to change, I believe it is our idea of progress.

Re: “Mistaken identity

The whole so called Lumbee tribe of North Carolina pretended to be Cherokee based on guesses and lore for over 40 years from 1910 thru 1945 yet no one has the courage to call them on their now sarraw siuoan claim in fact they now receive 13$million annually for having the best telltale lie from HUD as a state invented tribe based on state proof needed for that just good legends and votes!
