The idea I like the most is going off grid entirely, which I suspect is the "cancer" power companies are really scared of. You would need a battery system, expensive, and probably a fuel based system for heat. I'm thinking wood, and they make electric chainsaws. Folks on the highline have so much wind, they could probably heat with it.
Something none of these comments have touched on is that through history, most humans have died of starvation. That means that anyone posting here is descended from those who barely made it; a slim but critical difference from the almost made its. People should remember that.
The civilization we live in, for now, is easily capable of feeding all its members well. Some assert that economic incentives should extend to letting the children of those who do not succeed economicly starve. I would argue that the productive people should be concerned that their work, as always, is skimmed away to fatten those on top.
I also have to say that "mr logic" would not know a fact if he tripped on it.
Pretty snarky. I generally don't align myself with the "please give me an excuse to shoot somebody" crowd, and it is a crowd, but the reality is that genie is never going back in the bottle, so why not? I don't recall hearing about any teachers ever having pulled a nutty, although they surely get provoked, and if one would they could bring the ordnance without permission. You can wish the guns away, but they'll still be there, as will the crazies.
Americans for Feudalism would more accurately describe their goals.
The break with reality that Payne and so many others evince is most worrying to me. The belief many hold that removeing cattle from public lands for refusal to pay fees or not allowing ATVs to tear up archeological sites is such an outrageous assault on freedom as to warrant armed revolt . . . These people could find real outrages in other parts of the world if they are so anxious to pop a rightous cap. Let's hope they never manage to make their grim fantasies real.
This article could have said more about the gun proposals we have been hearing about. I think the Rs should award a medal to that guy up in Kalispell who, in a heroic act of self defense, blew away the unarmed husband of the woman he was seeing. Under current law he faces no charges, but now the legislature proposes letting people issue themselves concealed carry permits, presumably trusting the bad guys to deny their own applications. Their wisdom has reached a transcendent level not seen since power deregulation. Anybody remember how well that worked out?
Missoulians should definitely help Van Valkenberg find another line of work.
