Re: “Etc.

Consider yourselves lucky if these dress codes are the worse mischief those buffoons come up with.

Re: “Etc.

It's long past time for non-believers to find their (our) voices.

I get really, really, really frustrated by not being able to escape it, especially at this time of year.

And even worse is the hypocrisy of the gross commercialization of xmas.

Never underestimate the ability of commerce to cheapen anything and everything, and to drag it down to the lowest, most petty level imaginable.

Re: “Etc.

If a billboard like that can help one person with depressed or suicidal thoughts ask for help, then it's a good thing.

Re: “etc.

Here's a pretty ironic and telling update to the original Indy Etc.

Lawsuit from Missoula City-County Health Board, the Missoula Valley Water Quality District, the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes and the Clark Fork Coalition blasts Stone-Manning's DEQ for 'absurd' Clark Fork River pollution permit…

Re: “Etc.

This new position only helps Montana, giving us a stronger voice on the issues important to our state: rural healthcare, postal reform, management of our public lands, veterans issues, the list goes on. Tester has never been on to compromise Montana's values and there's no reason to this he will now with his new position.

Re: “Etc.

Looks like you were ahead of the main MT media on making this connection, after the news Tester will be heading up the DSCC today. Good job.

Re: “Etc.

Moderate, my ass ! Tester is just yet another DINO, of which the senate has about 40 too many of, which IMO is why they lost so badly nationally last week.

Re: “Etc.

Lot of people in Missoula didn't vote this year. Lot of absentee ballots not returned.

Why is that?

Re: “Etc.

This week Coca-Cola closed their bottling plant in Great Falls, costing 50 people their jobs. Thank God Denny's there to bring them BK - I know that's what they've always dreamed of.

Re: “Etc.

Marijuana is currently a $120 million a year business in this state. Craft brewing, by comparison, is $60 million.

When you don't regulate markets you have problems like this. And I'm sorry, but when something is illegal there's no regulations. You can say a law is a regulation, but when 10% to 12.21% of Montanans are getting high each month...well?

Independent reporters - you're getting paid, why not come up with a report on how many people are in Montana prisons for pot. Look up how many are in that crowded Missoula jail. Did that have something to do with that guy getting 3 years probation for forcing his girlfriend to cut that tattoo off her?

Do some reporting, will ya? Or else people like me will just continue to show you up:…

Re: “Etc.

It just doesn't make a lot of sense to me to bring infectious diseases and the people carrying them to Montana. This is where you'd go in the movies when things get out of hand.

But in the movies there's always a few stupid scientists that mess everything up, poke themselves, or generally destroy civilization.

Remember, though, these guys have PhD's so they can do no wrong.

It's unfortunate we live in a country where these things have to happen.

Re: “Etc.

In our anthropocentric paradigm, we all too often underestimate the intelligence of "lesser" (?) animals.

Which reminds me of one of my favorite Calvin and Hobbes ---
Calvin : "I just sharpened my fingernails so they're like claws !"
Hobbes : "But mine are retractable."
Calvin (with defeated look on his face ) : "Sigh ! No wings, no prehensile tail, no compound eyes...sigh !"

Funny and not so funny, these arguements were the same ones when they were trying to decide of blacks should be allowed in white bathrooms.....

Re: “etc.

I think this transgender thing is just stupid. If you’re a man, you’re a man. If you’re a woman, you’re a woman. No law, city ordnance or crying in the papers is ever going to change that. It’s just political pandering to the masses.
