Re: “A seemingly endless election cycle finally comes to a finish

What a huge disappointment in some of the people of Montana for electing a real gangster from out-of-state... who proved that he hasn't the skill to be a representative of the people with his short temper and lack of vocabulary. The Koch Brothers are going to love the fact that they have a "tough guy" and a dolt running legislation for them and their gangster buddies while they drain the country of all of our assets and leave us devastated by sheer stupidity! Making the Country Great Again by turning back the clock 100 years. Sad Memorial Day in Montana, our boys still coming home in body bags.

I am hoping for an end to the relentless phone calls from the GOP Trump/Zinke/Giantforte! Give me back my peace and quiet!

Re: “A seemingly endless election cycle finally comes to a finish

The last 3 or 4 paragraphs finally go around to talking about something substantive : Health care.

The reason - obviously - practically no members of either the repuglikan nor dimacrap branch of our one, dominate corporate-controlled party is willing to even consider universal/single payer health care is because they purposefully ignore the fact that they're (theoretically) elected to serve the "real" people's interests, not the interests of corporate "artificial people".

If they'd put the interests of humans ahead of corporations, we'd have had universal single payer health care decades ago.

Seems the only candidate who's been lawful and orderly in this race is Mark Wicks.

Re: “Rick Bass: We need to make room for rhinos—and bears

Yes Alf but unfortunately our Wilderness is "fair" game for our governments to make more money off "licensing" of TROPHY HUNTERS AND TRAPPERS...and now with the "DUMBING DOWN OF AMERICA" we are a nation of TV and IPhones...they can get away with ANYTHING!!!!!!

Re: “Rick Bass: We need to make room for rhinos—and bears

In one of his books - I don't remember which one - Edward Abbey quoted Doug Peacock's definition of a *true* wilderness as only a place where one could run the risk of being mauled by a grizzly or gored by a rhino.
I wholeheartedly agree.

Re: “Power, vulnerability, and prairie dogs: an American morality tale

CL Rolphe, if you were paying any attention at all, how could you NOT have seen this coming ?

Drumpf is a pathological, serial liar and has a long history of scams and flim-flams, stiffing his creditors and cheating his employees. Talk is cheap, and since he's been in office, he's (again) shown his true colors by the evil reptiles he's selected for his cabinet and the awful, inhumane executive orders he's signed. He's no friend of us common folks. He's all for himself, the Koch brothers and rest of the plutocratic oligarchy, and no one else.

Re: “What a tool believes: Does Greg Gianforte support repeal and replace, or not?

Great timing to have Trump, Jr in Montana saying his Dad and Gianforte are in lock step. Today, Trump Sr. said Citizen James Comey should consider that he may have tapes of private conversations (just like Nixon did.) Well that's interesting, but even Nixon wasn't stupid enough to admit he was taping everything said to him.

Oh and by the way, isn't it against the law to tape phone conversations unless there is a beep to warn the other party? I'll bet Comey would know. He'll also know how many ways Trump can violate the law. Good God Donald, there must be 50 ways to leave your office.

Re: “What a tool believes: Does Greg Gianforte support repeal and replace, or not?

I keep stumbling over that whole "christian values" thing. Gianforte presents himself as a devout, fundamentalist believer; young Earth creationism, dinosaurs in Eden, that shady old dodger Noah working off the books and cheating on his pension.

Yet, after stoutly pledging that he would NEVER agree to let voters be stripped of their health insurance or premiums to skyrocket, he was recorded on a secretive conference call with wealthy campaign contributors gushing about how tickled he was that the House had managed to do exactly that.

Maybe I'm just confused about those "christian values"??? Maybe I got it wrong when I thought they were about honesty, integrity, and compassion!!

Apparenty so.

Re: “Power, vulnerability, and prairie dogs: an American morality tale

Thank you Mr. Horning. At first I voted for Mr. Trump because, as I am one of the many, I believed his campaign speeches and I knew I would NEVER vote for another crooked politician! The problem is, as is always, his rhetoric was all about how he was going to "save America"...well I don't think that is going to well at all and now his gun toting son comes to Montana to shoot animals for fun??? Well between that idiot and Gianforte (another wealthy idiot) this state is headed for nothing but trouble! If he is voted in we will lose so much there are no words...I like you, am so sad that we did not see this coming!!!

The carpetbagger is an unprincipled, amoral slimeball. He'd fit right in in D.C.

Re: “Quist and Gianforte shoot first, pander later

Wicks will be getting my vote, and this after I gave Quist $25 on March 6.

The drip drip drip of his financial decisions was just too much. This last one about hiding apartment income from the tax agencies is just despicable. Quist is as bad as Walsh was.
