Re: “Home spree

And now add to the students mix the refugees. The R&P Abstract should have dealt with refugee housing in conjunction with student housing, low income, high rents etc.

Re: “Etc.

Greg's right. You have to build a party - a movement - from the ground up, not the top down. That's been the failing of the Greens so far : little of no ground game. OTH, the reactionaries had a long range strategic plan to take over the repuglikan party, starting in the late 70s or early 80s by stealthily getting themselves installed on local school boards, and then working their way up from there.

Re: “Seeds of change

To my knowledge, leopards never change their spots, nor tigers their stripes. That said, having known Ed Levert (aka Fast Eddy or Eddy Rabbit) when he was a Forest Service employee, he'll push hard - very hard - for "active" management : i.e. log the crap out of it; slick off every stick they can even get a tapered 2x4 out of !

Re: “Home spree

The laws of supply and demand : High rents and crappy paying jobs are ubiquitous problems in all smallish- medium-sized cities with largish colleges or universities. It was the case when I was attending the University of Oregon in Eugene in the 1960s, and no doubt was long before I went there, and I'm sure it still is. Students are especially vulnerable and therefore are especially exploited.

Re: “Termed out

Hey, isn't Pburg less than 100 miles from Missoula, the refugee welcoming city? Maybe the Congolese homeless families can be placed at the vacated Vote Smart Location? It's just beautiful. Not too far away is the Granite County hospital for health care, a second hand store for winter cloths and household stuff and an expanding brewery for employment.

Re: “In Trump They Trust

JR is certainly correct when he says that we have the worse two choices for pretzeldunce in modern history. Probably the worse two choices, period, ever. But to suggest or imply that Il Duce Trumpolini is any less dishonest or corrupt that Killery Klinton ??!? Both are evil -- and I don't use that term lightly.

While Lady McDeath Klinton may - may (?) - be "technically" qualified for the office, she's demonstrated repeatedly that her judgement is something worse than awful. Neither she nor The Donald are MORALLLY fit for the job.

While I realize that Stein hasn't a snowball's chance in hell of winning, I'll vote for her as a protest, and hope that both the Greens and Libertarians get enough votes nation-wide so in the future they become viable options to the corrupt, ossified, morally bankrupt branches of the single korporate party we're now stuck with.

Re: “Home spree

And where does that leave the all the refugee Congolese families coming this month ? Where is the first relocated family staying? Missoula refugees face housing issues | Local |…

Where are the affordable rentals for non income families of 6+? Even working low income Missoulians with govt subsidies are on a waiting list.

Re: “Home spree

"Sell out and move to Butte" - Butte is one of my favorite cities in Montana. The architecture is amazing and the history rich. If you haven't been there,check it out. Dan, now that you are living in beautiful Montana you might find it surprising that my all time favorite place to live is Des Moines,Iowa. I grew up in Montana, have it in my DNA, come back to visit every year, BUT I love Des Moines. It's changed quite a bit since you've been here, but the people still remain some of the nicest and friendliest people on earth. And as you know, it's a great place to raise a family......and yes, the humidity in the summer makes you want to visit Montana.

Re: “In Trump They Trust

We have the worst two choices for President in modern history. I will hold my nose and vote for Trump, because I can't vote for the most dishonest, corrupt person to ever run for the Office - Hillary. She has to lie to cover up lies. Bill said she just may be the smartest woman in the world, yet when the FBI "interviewed her" she answered 39 questions with either "I don't remember" or "I don't recall".. Damn, that's one smart woman. Of course she is just following the Clinton playbook, deny, deny, deny or claim you don't recall.

Re: “Pipeline protest

What a joke, these yoyos would rather have this oil transported by Warren Buffet's railroad, which is hundreds of times more likely to have a huge derailment and spill, than by the safest pipeline ever constructed in the USA. This pipeline is far superior to those built 30 or more years ago. If they were REALLY concerned about oil spills they would want the pipeline. This small group has gotten too much attention

Re: “Etc.

We know neither Stein nor Johnson will be in the debates...unless they poll 15%. I don't see that happening.

I also don't see the MT Green Party going anywhere. Are you going to run candidates in Missoula, for the legislature in 2018, say? How are they going to win against Democrats?

They're not. So there'll be no Green Party members in any elected offices, and because of that the party will fade to obscurity.

Or did you have another idea of what might happen?

Good job identifying the problem.

Now, what's the solution?

Re: “Sheriff's department

Altering documents, huh?

It's clear the Missoula Sheriff's Office has been rife with corruption for some time. Perhaps it is just the 'leadership,' but that terrible behavior and the precedent it sets filters down, eroding the integrity and honor of every single person who works there.

When will it stop?

Re: “In Trump They Trust

I've had a Bernie sticker on my car for over a year now and next week a Gary Johnson sticker will join it.

Despite that, when I'm standing in that ballot box in November...I still might vote for Trump.

I don't agree with everything he says, but he's saying a lot of what needs to be said. This country is broken in so many ways. With him there's a chance something might change. I don't see that chance with anyone else, and we know Johnson and Stein aren't going to win.

What's ironic is that the image on the poster is of Michelangelo's "David," a Middle Eastern Jew. I wonder if the white nationalists get that?

How much money was spent on branding around 'Thrive'? Now a new slogan... what's wrong with 'Lux et Veritas'?

Re: “Fash the campus

In the City of Missoula it is illegal to post flyers like this on utility poles. Therefore, they are illegal like litter or, at best, abandoned property. In either case, removing them is a civic duty. I don't know if, as a state institution, UM is covered by the City's ordinance.

Re: “Maclay bridge

Maclay Bridge Alliance members have been peddling inaccurate statements about the Bridge for 20 years as well. They have ignored or discounted the science and engineering studies they do not like to further a false narrative. The current bridge is unsafe and damaging to the Bitterroot River. The problems cannot be fixed. The scare tactics about the cost of the new bridge are also false.
