Awesome event!

Re: “The long view

Yes it's true old ladies at school athletic events have been known to use the boy's bathroom. It's a common scene. A big crowd -- women and girls lined up at the girl's bathroom. Boy's room has emptied out.

Grandma forgot to put on her Depends and there's no denying -- it's an emergency. The only sane course of action is to post a guard at the boy's bathroom and follow nature's call. The alternative would be a puddle in the hall.

Re: “University District

Since when in America do we have to present our tastes and plans to surrounding neighbors before we build, landscape, or even buy a car? If it is done within the law and its codes, why the brouhaha? Bitter hearts? Please! Get over it! If you want restrictions, live in a neighborhood that has deed restrictions or homeowner associations.
The complaining is getting old, and this is a very weak article. The cartoon, however, says it all!
Find another cause to focus your energy, jealousy, and power trips! Hey, how about turning it into something positive for a change of heart?!

Re: “Postal service

18 USC 1702, 1705, 1708, and 1725. As far as I know, the USC, United States Code, is the Law, not a guideline or "rule". USPS does not make the Laws in the US Code.

Re: “Postal service

The article states that 35 years ago, a USPS "rule" that the inside of a mail box is postal property was upheld in the courts. Later, the USPS added to the "rule," stating the box itself, but not the post, is post office property. So, if this isn't an actual law, I hope the court rules in flyer-man's favor. Anyone can make up a "rule," but does that make it a legality that we have to "obey"?

Re: “Shooting the moon

I have a question for all involved here. How many gun crimes, in the city of missoula, have been committed with a gun bought privately without a background check? I don't know if the answer is 1000 or 0. But to me this does make a difference. If its 0 quit wasting taxpayer money, if its 1000 I might get on board too.

Re: “University District

It's the old conundrum : Where does one person's rights end, when exercising those rights may adversely impact others ? Because I could make some money by doing so, should I be allowed to set up a rock crusher or an asphalt plant on my private property, even if it's in a residential neighborhood ?

My right to swing my fist stops short of your nose.

Re: “University District

I agree completely "the monstrosity" as I call it is tacky - not so much because the architecture is bad, it's really not, but so completely unfitting in the neighborhood.

All to show, the rich have no taste.

Re: “Shot down

Since when does some religious zealot's filing of a "religious objection" give him or her the right to imperil his/her kid's health ? And perhaps more important, that of other kids ?

Re: “The long view

I've said several times before in my comments on articles in the Indy that Montana seems, unfortunately, to be getting more and more like Idaho. And this is another example.

Thanks for brightening up my day. Attorney General Fox certainly marches to the beat of his own drummer, however off the beat it is.

Re: “Postal service

If he attaches the flyer to the letterbox, or any part of the letterbox, yes, it is a criminal offense covered by the USC Statutes previously listed.

If it is on the supporting post, then no, that is not considered part of the letterbox.

The story said that this loon attached the flyer in various locations around and on the letterboxes.

Re: “Shooting the moon

I do not care what a gun owner in Missoula or some gun control advocate says! This will set a president, soon all the anti gunners will be looking to employ the same law and more in every county of Montana. you want to see where this goes look at California. No single gun law is enough, they want more and more until your stripped. Mr Missoua man, Do not think for a one second they wont add your name to an unapproved list, if you own guns your not in favor of the King. your a useful idiot. you weakness does not trump my rights.

Re: “The long view

I really don't know how I lived my life up to mid-2016 while this monumental problem was simmering under the surface. Just think, all through the 90s and 2000s we had this bathroom problem and we didn't even know. How did we manage? Thank God we're talking about it now. I can feel the world getting better already.

Re: “University District

Let's be frank - in Missoula you can do what you want unless it bothers someone else. Whether it's building the house that you want, selling a gun to a family member, or putting up a funky-looking building where an old Italian market used to be, you can do it...but by God, be ready for the consequences.

See, we like to say we love freedom and tolerance, but then when that gets in the way of our preconceived notions and accepted viewpoints it becomes problematic. We lash out, point fingers, and call names. Because gosh darn, don't 'those people' know better?

This is Missoula, for goodness sakes, and we have standards and a history. We have honor to maintain, and legacies to live up to.

So do it our way, and if you don't know what that is, we'll darn-well make sure you do after the fact.

Missoula - stay weird.

Re: “Seniors

Just this past week Gaulker was complaining that her Parks Department had a $150,000 budget shortfall.

Well, give her this $40,000 instead of using it for a study of something that we've passed on since the year 2000. We have a $30 million library this fall and we gave $150 million to schools in November. We did Parks for $42 million in 2014, we're doing a water lawsuit and the jail is bursting at the seams.

No, it's not time for $40,000 studies, it's not time for any studies except those that can be done by our current public employees to figure out how to stop the monstrous level of bleeding coming from City Hall's books.

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.

Thanks for the info, but I feel we need more.

Is the man doing anything illegal? If not, then the government needs to leave him alone.
