Another phony, reprehensible repuglikan reptile.

Re: “Lisa Triepke campaign surrogate Wes Spiker goes off script

This is very helpful. I just saw a little flyer supporting Triepke in my local grocery. I wondered who she was.
Now I know.
She won't get my vote, Spiker won't get my business, and hopefully, I won't have to not shop at that store that I really like!
Yuck!

Re: “Lisa Triepke campaign surrogate Wes Spiker goes off script

Well.... this simplifies so much! I just saw a sign advocating for Triepke in my local grocery store and wondered who she was.
Well, now I know. She won't get my vote, Spiker's business won't get mine, and I'll be thinking about whether I continue to do business with that store.
Dammit, I really like that store!

Re: “Former Five Valleys Land Trust Director Grant Kier takes aim at Greg Gianforte's House seat

This sounds promising. And almost anyone would be an improvement over Gianforte.

So, Greg Strandberg, did you actually read this article? Mr. Kier has worked for a decade with all kinds of people all over western Montana. It's would make sense that he actually would understand the realities and concerns of many Montanans. Why would you think he doesn't?

Re: “Former Five Valleys Land Trust Director Grant Kier takes aim at Greg Gianforte's House seat

@Greg Strandberg - In your incessant, vituperous commenting across a multitude of forums on virtually every issue, I have yet to see a single hint even that you have any idea what the realities and concerns are for ANY Montanans.

What I have seen is pretty much just mouth and attitude, without reason or facts. It's called "trolling."

Re: “Lisa Triepke campaign surrogate Wes Spiker goes off script

So the folks in Ronan and Polson are going to Kalispell? Why? Because it is so much better to shop in a community that has attracted the likes of Richard Spencer and others who subscribe to fringe racist ideologies? Yeah, that's much better than those transients who allegedly spend all their time raping women. Like the Mexicans of course.

Re: “Lisa Triepke campaign surrogate Wes Spiker goes off script

Wes Spiker is well known as a spoiled kook. I.E. former spokesperson for Stock Farm, attending posh American Express luxury publishing conferences (this list could stretch for pages). He's generally regarded as a boomer douche of the first order behind his back. There are numerous legends of his petulant behavior like crawling across a boardroom table while screaming "wah wah" while berating a client for being a "baby". It's pretty clear that he's the brains and $ behind Lisa's campaign. If he hates progressive politics so much maybe a McMansion in Big Sky is where he can be around folks like himself. I'd say good riddance.

Re: “Lisa Triepke campaign surrogate Wes Spiker goes off script

Why hasn't Mayor Engen filed a single campaign finance report since August 26? Are you telling me he hasn't raised a single dollar over the past 25 days? I find that hard to believe. Remember, Montana law requires candidates to file a new report 48 hours after they receive a donation.

What's going on?

Re: “Former Five Valleys Land Trust Director Grant Kier takes aim at Greg Gianforte's House seat

Grant Kier made $92,887 in 2015 as a director of a 'nonprofit.'

He has no idea what the realities and concerns are for the majority of Montanans.

Re: “Lisa Triepke campaign surrogate Wes Spiker goes off script

Many of the points raised in Spiker's letter are some of the reasons hundreds of families in the Ronan - Polson area have quit doing business, shopping, attending events, etc. in Missoula. They now take all the money they spend out of town to Kalispell. And the actions and words of Ellie Hill and Mayor Engen are part of the reason too. Missoula is quickly becoming a mini Seattle-Portland-San Francisco.

Re: “Documenting Bigfoot's small-town footprint

For anyone interested in the subject...I wrote a book called Paranormal Montana that collects all the Bigfoot sightings in Montana that I could find, covering the years from the 1890s to the early-2000s.
