Re: “How to turn a Women's March into a movement

Montana elected Jon Tester. Montana elected Steve Bullock. Montanans do surprising things and have many examples of courage, conviction, and activism to draw on.

Re: “Trump or Christianity: Greg Gianforte has a decision to make

In his inagural address, Trump stated two interesting ideas for Gianforte to mull over.
"We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone." "a child is ... infused with the breath of life by the same almighty Creator."

Perhaps he referred to Genesis 2-7: "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul."

Re: “Path clears for the Mountain Water takeover. Now about that bill...

Kids and grandkids footing the bill is the American way. Dont act so suprised. At least with this debt, they will get to drink the water.

Re: “FW&P killed six mountain lions in Grant Creek last month. Was that necessary?

Question - how are the wolves doing in that area?

Re: “Path clears for the Mountain Water takeover. Now about that bill...

This'll cost us a quarter billion dollars when it's all said and done.

That's a lot to pay for something that worked fine before.

It should't be surprising how stupid we are, however. Look how many of us buy bottled water. Used to get that for free to, out of the sink.

But we're too good for that now. We demand more. And my will we pay for it.

Well, we won't. Our kids will foot this bill, maybe the grandkids too.

Re: “FW&P killed six mountain lions in Grant Creek last month. Was that necessary?

"...even killing a deer in a residential front lawn."
Lions kill deer because that's what they eat...the fact that dinner is obtained on a snow-covered lawn means nothing to a lion. This isn't what I would call "extreme behavior"--it's what I would call lion behavior: "I'm hungry. There's a deer. Let's eat." Humans must accept the responsibility for modifying their own behavior to accommodate their wild neighbors and keep them safe. Proactively managing human behavior should be the largest part of the solution; wildlife should not bear all the cost. I applaud FWP for being more assertive about the law--it is illegal to draw deer to one's property with feed and/or salt. Many people are divorced from the workings of the natural world and don't make the connection that artificially concentrating prey attracts predators. Kudos to the Mountain Lion Foundation for their advocacy. To learn more about mountain lions: http://www.mountainlion.org/ ~Kathleen

Re: “How to turn a Women's March into a movement

More than half the people in this country don't vote. No matter of marching is going to change that.

Democrats don't have the numbers in Montana to change anything. They refuse to look at themselves to figure out why.

Re: “With Mary Ave. pushing through Franklin to the Fort, side-streeters brace for traffic

This is your city run-amok. The mall developers had to have their $17 million in free taxpayer money. What you want doesn't matter. You're just a resident; they're an established business. Get used to it - there are lots more developments planned.

Re: “The political appeal of going native

Democrats are the worst at pushing this narrative. Look at how Bullock's two east-coast ringers plastered the airwaves with Gianforte's out-of-state heritage a few months ago. They never could figure out where he was actually born. I'm sure we'll see more of it. Dems have to do anything they can to win, so low are their numbers outside the cities.

This is terrible!
Do a better job of relocating them farther away. This is intolerable!

Re: “Trump or Christianity: Greg Gianforte has a decision to make

I was baffled by Gianforte's $20 million gift to his New Jersey university.

He only spent $6 million in the governor's race.

But would it have mattered if those numbers were reversed? He'd already spent more on TV ads than anyone else in the country, by voter or some such. That's pretty saturated.

If he couldn't win when all the other GOPers won via Trump's coattails, how's he gonna do it now?

Re: “The Forest Service just reached a settlement that could end that whole megaload debate

Regional Forester Leanne Marten signed off on this decision. As a retired forestry circus employee, I've notice over the years that the best, most difficult, and often controversial decisions were disproportionately made by female ranges, forest supervisors, etc. I suppose to say that they have bigger balls than their male counterparts would somehow be a sexist statement, so I won't say it, but you get the idea.

Re: “Montana stable shocks horse racing, goes for $1 million purse

I love hearing stories like this. I sell Montana ranches for sale and to say it is a long shot for Montana horse industry to hit it big makes it that much sweeter. Congratulations to these guys and their risk taking paying off.

Re: “The Forest Service just reached a settlement that could end that whole megaload debate

Great news and a huge congratulations to groups who took part in the lawsuit and the many activists and organizations that worked on this issue.

Hopefully one of the lessons here is that when politicians, or government agencies, fail to reign in corporate power, that the American people can still seek redress in the federal court system.

Not only is this important to remember in the era of President Trump, but it's also important to remember in an era where some conservation groups are much more interested in 'collaborating' with the timber industry, oil and gas industry, etc, while at the same time complaining about lawsuits or actually lobbying for legislation that effectively closes the courthouse doors on the American people.

Again, Congrats to all the people and groups who made this victory agains the mega-loads possible!

oh one last thing, von Lossberg saw data all right, he saw money from the Bloomberg backed anti-gunners from New York, and thought he better cash in while he could.

Re: “Attorney General Fox strikes down Missoula gun ordinance

some half truths here in your article. "gun show sales" in Montana private face to face sales are legal, gun show or yard sale it doesn't matter the location...HOWEVER if a gun DEALER has sales at a gun show, then the BUYER must undergo a background check to purchase the gun.
Craigslist was mentioned, but know this, even advertising a gun or ammo for sale or trade is forbidden and the ad will be removed and the poster banned for life from using C-list.
there are indeed pages on the internet where one may advertise or purchase a gun. Armslist is one and that is governed by Montana's face to face, dealer sales laws. also Armslists is only a place to advertise, they do not physically touch a gun in any shape or form. again if a dealer is selling a gun on Armslist or any other form of internet advertising, the background check must be done. The federal Firearm license holder FFL must have records of every gun coming in, and everyone going out and must produce those records at will to the BATFE.
