Re: “Zinke gets Interior staff into the “#sportsmen” spirit

What a phony bastard ! No moral or ethical compass at all. All he seems to be interested in is advancing his own career and padding his own bank account.

Next stop ? probably K Street, with a high six or a seven figure a year salary. If he ever comes back to Montana at all (Let's hope not !), I'll bet it'll just be for an annual luxury, outfitted "hunt", or to schmooze with the likes of Gianforte and the other high rolling scum at Pig Sty, the Yellowstone Club, or on their showcase, tax-dodge, hobby ranches.

Re: “Remembering Esther Chessin

Esther was full of light and love. The article doesn't mention that her daughter has Down syndrome. We connected initially through Arbonne but ultimately through both having children with Down syndrome. My heart is heavy and I pray for Isabella and her future without her beautiful mother

Re: “Remembering Esther Chessin

One of my favorite true Missoulian's ever! She has been a positive force in this community for decades, and in my life since day one of meeting her. Way back in 1992. We should rename one of our streets for this great woman, this exceptional human being should never leave our hearts and thoughts. Goodbye Esther. We love you!

Re: “Helena to remove country's northernmost Confederate monument

And where shall the removal of monuments end? Seriously. Anyone who naively thinks that once all the bad, evil Confederate statues are removed that the Marxists and their opportunist puppets will finally be satisfied is a complete fool. Next it will be all slave holders like Washington and Jefferson who 'are just as bad as the Confederates'. Next it will be all men who said something 'not PC' like Lincoln who wanted to ship every black person to Liberia after the Civil War.

Here's the hint: There is no end. They don't care about the damn statues, or the bathrooms, or human rights. These social parasites cloaking themselves in faux moral virtue complain and rabble-rouse for the express purpose of attacking the powerful and taking power from them. They attempt to paralyze decent folk who full well understand the madness of their desires, who foolishly believe that they can be placated by giving into just one more of their stupid demands. It is literally spelled out in Marxist doctrine and practice to do this in order to overthrow and destroy a society. This is not new whatsoever.

Every official who bows the knee to these people - councilmen, mayors, representatives, anyone - is at best a well-meaning dupe and at worst an outright traitor to their constituents. In all cases they are weak and dangerous and should be replaced as soon as possible from their positions with those who refuse to feed this political monstrosity.

Re: “On Sunday, Missoulians marched in solidarity with Charlottesville

Let me remind everyone: They are not 'love'. Their opposition is not 'hate'. They are ideologues, thralls, and well-meaning fools who take any opportunity to gild themselves in a thin veneer of righteousness so that they might rage against others with a clear conscience. The violence at that rally would have been impossible without Leftists actions, screaming and spitting and spewing vile lies and hatred against those they labeled 'hate'. Their side is as much responsible and perhaps even more responsible for these events than the opposition.

You know that car incident? There is footage showing one of the 'peaceful Leftist protesters' bashing it with a bat as the driver was trying to slowly move through the crowd, right before he accelerated. In fact he was breaking and stopping for people in the way up until that point suggests he wasn't just lining up for a premeditated attack and instead, like the other vehicles trapped in that blob of protesters, might have been simply trying to pass through. Might that aggression by some self-righteous asshole who thought themselves as 'love' have been a factor in the carnage that followed? Makes one think...

Let me end by saying that this little march here seems to have gone off without a hitch, because otherwise this publication would have immediately wailed and whined about it without a doubt. Could National Socialists enjoy the same non-violent treatment here? How about anyone who disagrees with these peoples' vapid ideologies? Free speech is not meant to protect the feelings and opinions of the mob - it is to protect ideas and people from the hysterical mob that would silence them. And I find all hysterical mobs to be embarrassing and vile, whether they are Marxist or Nazi.

Re: “Wobbly like me?

Employers and workers do have different concerns and responsibilities, but a healthy relationship between the two is very clear: Both work together to guide a venture towards success that benefits the entire crew. If done in a truly virtuous manner this results in benefits to the entire community - and Marxists like Little and current Wobblies seek to kill that relationship.

Look, this issue was covered back in pre-empire Roman days. The metaphor was thus: There was a body that for many years all worked in harmony. The hands collected food for the stomach which digested it to provide energy to the brain to find the food in the first place. But one day the stomach looked at the brain and said, "Ho! Look at that - I work hard all day long digesting this food and that lump of flesh just sits up there and orders the rest of us around." "That's right!" said the hands, "We work our fingers to the bone, and all we get in return is more work! I won't do anything either!" So the hands and stomach righteously refused to collect or digest the food the brain sought to find, and all three soon perished. The moral of the story is obviously that each part has its function in a healthy body, and so too does each part of society.

Entrepreneurs take massive risks with their resources to create ventures which employ workers who exchange their labor for compensation. When the venture is successful thanks to their teamwork the entrepreneur is compensated for their risks taken and the workers enjoy steady, productive employment. Most workers want nothing to do with management - being a worker has the great benefit of having a small plate of responsibilities, basically over yourself only, while management must take on responsibilities over a vast host of workers. And managers are often not skilled enough at the workers' jobs nor have the time or energy to conduct it themselves. It is a win-win scenario, a symbiosis which is certainly fragile but when it works it works amazingly well for everyone in and around that business.

Blaming the employers as being the bad guys is like blaming the brain for 'doing nothing' in the eyes of the stomach. It's fundamentally suicidal, and arises from greed and envy. Little's murder was obviously horrible. His message was also horrible. The best function that Wobblies can serve today is to present their ideas in the public square so that the populace might be properly inoculated against this pernicious ideology, and for the public to bring no harm onto those persons for freely expressing their ideas so ideas good and bad might be found and mulled over by the masses.

Re: “Zinke announces final delisting rule for Yellowstone grizzlies

Wolves and Grizzlies are listed as species of Least Concern by the highly recognized International Environmental Organization IUCN.. Do you think it is ethical to fall to the whims of anti-hunting groups disguises as Environmental groups and spend 75 to 80 percent of our Federal Endangered Species resources on JUST WOLVES and Grizzlies(outside aquatic and plant species). The abuse of the ESA needs to stop and the rich welfare lawyers that benefit in big numbers need to be held accountable?

Re: “City cuts a check, takes ownership of Missoula's water system

I would title the story, "At What Price?". The Mayor was either an idiot or pretended to be an idiot (when it comes to his cost prediction). Missoula is famous for being so expensive by Montana standards, that most take for granted when their children become adults, they will need to move to some place where they can more afford it, with a job that pays enough to live well. It starts with a premise that Missoula has to grow. If the debate starts from a position like that, and if you are against metro styled living with ghetto neighborhoods and loads of poor people who will never afford the city, you can't even say anything. Add all the other costs piled on to the Water Company take over like this story mentioned. Seems pretty crazy for a city of our size obligated to so much debt and mostly getting money from property taxes and limited payers.

Re: “Inside Gianforte’s election night party, or: How Montana Republicans learned to stop worrying and love the ‘body slam’

I love the part about Robert Crumley being supportive of someone breaking the law. He has done it himself a couple of times in Gallatin County. He recently plead guilty to a DUI in Justice Court, and has one pending in City Court. Plus he has a prior DUI, possibly a baby DUI, from out of state. I guess when your in the GOP its ok to break the law and assault people or drive drunk and possibly kill someone.

Re: “City cuts a check, takes ownership of Missoula's water system

It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the coming months and next couple of years. The mayor has been stepping on his tongue through the whole process. Lawyers fees will only be $ 400,000 they are now in the millions. How is the lost tax revenue going to be replaced and no rate increase until 2021, riiiight.
