Serious hit to business. At least it didn't turn into a Chipotle...yet.
January 2013 comment by Pat Williams:
UM "recruited thugs for its football team.”
Here's an idea to improve Griz football and the community while driving down costs at the same time:
Stop recruiting thugs
Stop recruiting from CA
Of course, when someone like Williams comes along and tells it like it is we get all up in arms and threaten to take his job away, as was done.
No wonder nothing changes - why would you want to discuss the problems when you get that kind of backlash?
So we'll just see the same problems again. Happens all the time when you sweep things under the rug.
Kraukauer already disparaged Bozeman and their Greg Mortenson for his own benefit. Is he done doing the same to Missoula now?
I hope so.
Owners "needed a bit of coaxing."
New ideas keep you at the forefront of business. Doing things as we've always done ensures others will pass you by.
We'll see how owners react to new ideas in the future. Imagine if they passed on this one...it'd be business as usual.
(but isn't it that anyways?)
I heard today that the protesters in North Dakota chained themselves to the construction equipment. That's the beginning of the end - the feds or the state or law enforcement will move in.
I figured the they'd wait a bit longer, until the media forgot about this story. I just don't see it turning out like it did in '96 with the Kootenai. That tribe was able to win, I don't see those at Standing Rock winning.
What is the plan to win?
We've got the same problem in Montana that we do nationally - people aren't that excited about voting for either candidate.
What Democrats need to think about is what Fox will do in 2020. Will he try for governor after his two terms as AG are up, or will Gianforte be back to try again that year after he loses this year? Will Gianforte run against Tester in 2018 and, if he wins, what will that do for the governor's race in 2020?
Or is Tim Fox just going to go away? I don't think so.
