Re: “Left behind

I am so happy the true Americans saw the sleaze factor on display and showed up to send that "pig ho packin." May another communist democrat never defile our White House again. Looks like many supreme court spots will be filled by conservative common sense justices. I was so happy to see the control of House Senate and Executive go to the good guys. So go soak your head Dan and get a life. Nuff Said.

Re: “Nickeled and dimed

My daughter and I (and her three kids) rented from PPM for four years, after having already rented the same place for four years previous to that time, from Grizzly Property, with whom we had developed a good, trusting relationship.
PPM treated us like trash, even though we paid our rent on time and were good tenants. We also experienced the monthly threat of extra charges which were unwarranted and unreasonable, though we managed to stay a step ahead of PPM throughout this time. After a full eight-year tenancy, they made demands that were the icing on the cake for us and we decided to leave there and rent from our favorite management company. PPM sent us a bill, stating that they were keeping our entire deposit AND charging us $1500.00 extra, including the costs of carpet cleaning (they are required to REPLACE the carpet after 5 year tenancy) and repainting. So, in effect, we are being told that we have to pay for something that they're required to do at their expense, not ours. This was in June of this year, and they turned us over to collections when we didn't pay it. My advice to anyone who wants to rent in this town is to steer clear of these tools. They'll screw you over.

Re: “Left behind

The Open Primary belongs to the Montana voters, that's we pay for it.
Primaries were established by Initiative in 1912. The reason there has been so much fighting about it is the Anaconda Copper Company hated the primary because it couldn't control it. The company wanted to return to smoke filled rooms (aka company-financed conventions of both parties)

Re: “Left behind

Political parties aren't even mentioned in the Constitution, yet they yield a lot of power regarding rule making. Get rid of them and/or definitely get rid of taxpayers financing their primaries.

Re: “Left behind

I made a prediction about Bullock winning the governor's office a second time. I didn't look at polls but I examined 100 years of Montana history. Only eight times, the political party in power has lost the governor's office. Five times the losing party wanted to get rid of the Open Primary. The party defending the "Open Primary" was almost always the winner.

You may scoff but look at the Attorney Generals 67% win versus Gianforte's 46% loss. The AG's office spent almost two years (2015-2016) fighting the GOP lawsuit to get rid of the open primary. Tim Fox won the fight and Montanans thanked him with their votes.

Re: “Left behind

You just can't get over blaming it on racism can you?? DRAIN THE SWAMP and put Dan Brooks in it before you drain it. I'm sick of the racism card being paid by the whining liberals.
Just because Trump wants the rule of law followed pertaining to illegals coming into this country, doesn't make it racist. The laws are already on the books to deal with this, he just wants them followed. Are the laws racist?? Get over it. Have you seen the county by county national map? Over 92 percent of the counties in the US were won by Trump. There are now only 5 states that are ruled completely by Democrats (Govenor and both hoses). And only 16 Democrat Gov. I believe. Since Obama took office, over 1,000 state Dem. legislative seats have been lost. But it must be due to racism. And voter suppression laws is a fairy tail. Get real and open your minds

Re: “Troopers to the front

This isn't about fear of oil spills, if it were they would rather have the oil transported by this new, high tech pipeline rather that by Warren Buffets railroad or via tanker trucks. The odds of a disaster happening are many times higher by rail or truck transport. And I bet my bottom dollar that at least 80% of the NATIVES protesting have no job and probably never had one in their life, and that those same 80% suck off the government (taxpayers). What can you do when you don't work, suck off the government and are bored?? You go protest, smoke weed, get drunk and on and on. And I am 1/4 Native myself, so don't call me racist for my on-site observations.

Re: “Troopers to the front

Since when is a peaceful protest an "unlawful gathering"? ("The troopers made direct contact with demonstrators once: to arrest four people who 'would not disperse an unlawful gathering'")
And the gang of hired thugs ("security guards") that sicked their dogs on the water protectors back on September 3rd, as reported by Amy Goodman on Democracy Now!, and quickly went viral, were a "lawful" gathering ?? Gimme break !

Re: “Nickeled and dimed

Professional Property Management is one of the worst. I rented from them for several years. One time I was sent a letter telling me that if I didn't remove my outside flower pots in 5 days they would be removed for me and I would be charged. This was around the end of October.

One time they did a routine walkthrough of my apartment. One smoke detector didn't have a battery in it. They then replaced that battery and tried to charge me $90 for this. I went down to the office and after arguing with the office girl for a bit she went to the boss, talked for 5 minutes, and the bill was brought down to $45.

Why that decision was made, I have no idea. I guess it's standard policy to cut bills by 50% if someone argues.

Personally, I believe there is no policy other than ripping off the renter. The group that lobbies on behalf of the rental industry has no problems with this.

Rental insurance is just a racket. There's no need for it, but like Obamacare, it's forced upon us low-income people. No consideration is given to how we pay it. PPM has their own scam where they offer rental insurance at about 20% above market rates. I feel sorry for people that sign up for it.

Check out PPM on Google. Look at all the 1-star reviews they have, reviews that go back for years.

This company cares about no one but itself. I consider them evil, myself, and I urge Missoula renters to bypass them.

Hopefully they'll go out of business one day.

Re: “Left behind

Latest numbers and still counting: now 799,019 more than 540,000 Gore had on GWB.

1,339019 more Americans voted for Clinton over Monumental F___ Up.
From 2016 National Popular Vote Tracker:
Updated 11/15/16 8:12pm MST

Remember Scott Walker?

Voter suppression laws may have given Wisconsin to Monumental F___ Up.

WI had the lowest voter turnout in twenty years.
41,000 fewer than 2012 in Milwaukee, largest city in WI.
61,000 fewer than 2012 in Milwaukee county.
Trumpster won WI by 27,257 votes.
Wisconsin implemented new voter suppression laws this year.

Republicans have spent years twisting, bending, manipulating the scales to their favor Gerrymandering and voter suppression, in every state.

It may not be all the electoral college's fault; though it obviously doesn't reflect the will of the people and should go away as an antiquated mess meant to favor slave states.

It's not all the democrat's fault either. Although I would rather had voted for Sanders, voting against the worst of two evils is pretty much what we are left with these days, it is rare to have an exceptional candidate for a choice. Hillary Clinton did have a lot of republican manufactured baggage. The 90s were the best economics times I have known in my life, the Reagan and Bush years the worst. Trumpster....I'm looking for it to be worse that GWB.
