Where is Max Baucus, absolutely the worst Senator in US history. While posing as a Democrat, he has been a one-man 5th column for the Republicans, endorsing all their rotten 1% games, and then making Democrats like it... Just to name a few...
ACA, without public option, and total sell-out to "insurance" racketeers. Medicare Part D- flat subsidy of some $40 billion a year to 5 drug cartels, causing thousands of deaths because of over-prescribed drugs and resulting problems. All the various bank bailouts, repealing Glass-Steagal, etc. - $trillions to the 1%, from which we might never recover... Voting for all the wars and occupations, opposing nuke reductions, NATO invasions and warmongering on a vast scale, etc. PATRIOT ACT, Homeland security (consstantly urging more military and "national security" pork for MOntana... Supporting MOnsanto, opposing GMO bans, etc. Supporting the Keystone XL and other climate catastrophes...
No other Senator in history can claim even half of this damage...
What did the Democrats expect, after voting to sell off Missoula's water system (originally owned by Anaconda) to the Neocons at Carlisle Group? Yes, Kavulla is a sworn enemy of public power and other public services, and a total climate change denier. But most of the Democrats, led by Bullock and Tester, are in the same camp, supporting Keystone XL and more coal "development." Surprise, surprise. Thanks, Indy, for getting rid of Ochenski who also pointed out these things.
Lots of content but no analysis. This is why "good liberals" always lose. First, they suppress or fire the people who are telling them what they're doing wrong - like Ochenski. Then, they take money and advice from the people who want them to lose.
It's the New Indy! Fire your best reporters and anyone else who offends the Democrat Machine.
Until you get rid of the idiot that fired George, no one else is going to read or write for you.
You should get a Pulitzer or Right Livelihood Award, or something, George. You're the best truth-teller in Montana, in my book. (Unfortunately, it's not a very big one.)
Back in the days when UM was better-known for Leslie Fiedler, its radical counter-culture, Rhodes Scholars, and others who excelled in their later political and professional lives, they had a very poor football team. Some of us warned that emphasizing sports like football could only harm the greater intellectual and cultural community.
But never fear. The Business School and media producers will save the day. So, why are they spending all that money on "damage control," hiring the same firm which "handled" the scandal at Penn State? It looks like MPC wasn't all that Pennsylvanians stole from us.
