Re: “There's a reason they call them land 'lords'

perhaps the author here should look into how utterly helpless a landlord is when having to deal with the "tenant from hell" and how complicated it has been legislated recently for a landlord to evict someone. months it may take, all the while the landlord is not receiving income from his investment.if both tenant and renter would do the right thing, there woulkd be no need in legislation, but alas someone is always getting screwed, so bring on the laws and penalties. after all they have been earned

Re: “Housing plan coming up short of affordable

Did you know that Missoula taxes have gone up 95% over the past 12 years? The last year we didn't see a tax increase was 2010.

Even if you find an affordable house to buy (and not just rent), you'll have a heck of a time paying both your through-the-roof mortgage as well as your tax bill...which is the highest in the state, by the way.

Re: “A cut too far: UM offloads annual Easter egg hunt

Cut out the dead wood - it's time to get rid of high-priced admin positions...permanently. There are too many, we don't know what many of them do, and they in no way benefit students.

Re: “Housing plan coming up short of affordable

You mean the Mayor cutting the ribbon at the Old Sawmill opening was just affordability theater? Color me shocked!

Re: “Housing plan coming up short of affordable

All these grand plans and the most simple thing is now impossible. Missoula as a city will never be affordable for regular working class people in the future. It was not so easy when my wife and I were in our 20s. It is way harder now and it will only get worse.

Re: “The drama triangle

Absolutely wrong. This crime knows no social boundaries, period.
The male bias in this town is criminal.
A women beats her boyfriend with a hose. He bleeds as the police tell her she can stay home without arrest, but is charged.
A man calls the police to remove his violent ex-girlfriend from his home and is arrested because the little sociaopath tells the police she FEELS afraid of him. The police audio is missing the man's testimony as well as the witness who sided with the guy who called Police???????

What??

Then the gal keeps comimg but his home which he can be arrested for so he calls the police and shorlty afterward his home is raoded for all electronic devises, he is held as a flight risk on a 3 day weekend when the Prosecutor is aware is attorney is out of town???

No charges were filed in the last incident. Pure harassment for calling the police as advised by his attorney.

An equality needs to be administered in domestic violence situations or no justice will ever be served.

Re: “A conservative group put UM historian Tobin Miller Shearer on 'Professor Watchlist.' To Shearer, the threat sounds awfully familiar.

Hyperbole much? Lol....typical of people who dont so much "reason", as "feel".

A 'watchlist' put in place to EDUCATE students and their families about where they may, or may not, want to invest their education dollars is NOT the "same as what Hitler did!", or "the same as what McCarthy did!".

Nor is it, as far as I have seen, "a hate list".

Now, you may have gotten disagreeable feedback because of methods/beliefs EXPOSED by the notoriety of being listed on that website. But is that not similar to feedback left throughout comments section's of websites, or social media itself?

Not to mention, of course, the infamous SPLC website. Which left-wingers have heralded for YEARS as "doing great work to call out the intolerant among us".

Well, shoe's on the other foot now, Prof.

And hilarity ensues.... ;)

Re: “No good answers

Guardian ad litems cover up crimes just like this one against babies all the time and judges protect them which is a crime. Why? Because most GALS are mostly lawyers and use desperate abused women and babies to serve thier larger clients. One loss for a desperate abused woman and child sacrificed to give a win to the better paying customer even if that better paying customer is a pedophile woman and child abuser. Clerk of courts is free to research cases. So everyone should educate themselves. Then contact the victims and explain they can report the truth to the ODC which investigates low life attorneys like this. Then report their findings about the judge to the judicial standard commission.

Re: “No good answers

Report to the FBI. Thousands of cases eerily similar exist because the judge abuses power protects the guardian ad life me and lawyers because they get caught operating outside the law and misleading the court for the simple reason of making back door deals for other cases they have with each other and preserving that chip in the pocket for the rainy day, The proverbial "owe you one" next time around. Who gets hurt? Girls babies and women so the lawyers can line their pockets and judges protect their friends. Public corruption is what it really is and every case needs to be reported to police FOR THE SIMPLE REASON THEY'LL DO NOTHING and that color of law violation for protecting the lawyers which are a whole other back door deal - the make reports to the FBI and pray to God the Feds raid the courthouse clerks office with buckets of extra handcuffs.

Re: “Montana deals with its antiquated laws on rape

Better late than never. It still amazes me how none of the real criminals in the case involving the rape by the Grizz football players ever went to prison. I can think of a few police, lawyers and MSU administrators who should be in prison today for their obstruction of justice during the rape in question. Some times I have to believe that until vigilante justice comes back into style the criminals in charge will still remain in charge even with the new laws in place. That is just the way our government works. It is sad but true the worst offenders of our civil rights, constitutional rights, and human rights falls directly on government officials federal state and local. Kind of like the fox guarding the hen house. Nuff Said

Re: “Sheriff's office investigating fraudulent county commission letter pulling support for refugees

WOW! After almost a year, another comment? With a link to a well written commentary from 2015? As far as wearing a T-shirt with a Mohammad cartoon printed on it in Missoula now, in 2107, still no fear. Being openly gay? Same. A woman walking around in "provocative" clothing? Same. But keep an eye out for subtle changes. Like this recent announcement the the media isn't "announcing". NOTE AS OF 8:06 am 3/16 KGVO only source of story, printed, never announced on air.

Comment to KGVO FB
Montana Elena for Liberty & Open Government Could it be that now Missoula and the UM have become more "diversified", an Easter event may be disturbing to people of another cultural flavor?

Easter 'Eggstravaganza' Not to be Held on UM Campus This Year
http://newstalkkgvo.com/easter-egg-travaga…


=============================================================================

NOTICE NO ANNOUNCEMENT OF the 2017 Easter Eggstravaganza BEING MOVED off CAMPUS APPEARS ON THE UM WEB SITE


Easter Eggstravaganza - University Relations - University Of Montana
http://www.umt.edu/urelations/outreach/eas…

Easter Eggstravaganza

The University of Montanas flagship campus in Missoula produces an educated, aware and trained citizenry for the state of Montana and beyond. In addition to educational and research endeavors, UM is an integral component of the Missoula community, providing a gathering space for all Missoulians.
The 2016 Easter Eggstravaganza is set for 1 p.m. Saturday, March 26, 2016, on the UM Oval.

I have the same question Montana Elena has.

I'll add one more: So what ever happened with the investigation of the "fake letter", the subject of this Indy article ?

Maybe some of the SITTING PUBLIC OFFICE HOLDERS SHOULD BE SEXUALLY ABUSED so they can understand what it is like to be sexually abused.

Most of Dan Brook's "stories" are satire. And usually, compared to real satire, not that good.
