Re: “A tip-splitting case at Missoula's The Keep could change the way Montana restaurants do business

Perfect recap of you. Don't leave out blatant idiocy, though. It really is the cherry on top.

Golly.

Ignorance...stupidity...venomous...shit-heel.

What's the problem, Brent...didn't get your tip-share at the Keep tonight?

I'll play your game, Greg. I know almost nothing about you, but I'll go ahead and say you are a total shit-heel. Do yourself a favor, and quit showing off your blatant idiocy.

Re: “A tip-splitting case at Missoula's The Keep could change the way Montana restaurants do business

I find it hard to believe that the Independent staff wouldn't have tried to reach out to the Keep owners for a comment. The fact that there is no such comment speaks volumes to me. Oh, but they did have their lawyer make a statement.

And let's be honest, Bret - no one gives a damn. Americans don't have the attention spans of a goldfish (8 seconds). People won't even remember this story in a week when the new issue comes out.

Greg, stop forming opinions based on such limited knowledge. You've read one sentence about the situation surrounding her firing and have decided you are a reasonable judge of the owner's character. You have no idea what the full story is, yet you blast your ignorant viewpoint with such venomous intent.

Re: “Montana officials weigh in on the "body slam" heard round the world

Both of the above comments are correct but I would go one step further...the FACT that he USED ANY KIND OF VIOLENCE AGAINST ANOTHER PERSON SHOWS HIS TRUE CHARACTER...HE IS A LOSER PERIOD!!!

Re: “A tip-splitting case at Missoula's The Keep could change the way Montana restaurants do business

I might be ignorant, Brent, but I've never fired a worker because they came to me with something they're concerned about. From the way the article puts it, I think that says a lot about these business owners and their character.

Time to make all tipping illeagal. Tipping is dishonesty and fraud.

Greg, you're ignorance is obvious and your hard line stance is a reflection of your stupidity.

Re: “A tip-splitting case at Missoula's The Keep could change the way Montana restaurants do business

Look......tip sharing should occur to a small extent.....if the food is shit amd the service is great its gonna have an impact on the gratuity and vice versa!.....furthermore, restaurants should pay key positioms more.....restaurant work can be stressful in every aspect, and gratuities are incentives...its like commission and back of house amd front of house should make comparable wages.

Re: “Letters to the Editor

Bob Lambert seems to think that polio vaccine had nothing to do with the decline and eradication of polio in the U.S. He cites advances in public health into the early 1900's. Polio did not decline until after the Salk vaccine was discovered in the early 1950's. How I wish the vaccine had been discovered a couple years earlier. As a result I have spent my entire life with Polio's after-effects.
He is like most anti-vaxxers who make claims with no basis in scientific evidence. Polio is a disease (like measles) that could make a comeback due to misinformation and rumor. Measles should have been eradicated. However, it is making a comeback because people like Lambert are buying into misinformation that it isn't necessary or worse, that vaccines cause autism. There is no scientific evidence to support that claim.
Stop this madness!

The issues presented here are the same reasons why Bernie Sanders' socialism doesn't work.

This article is so poorly written. This individual has third grade writing skills.

As a provider I, for one, will be using money orders instead of cash. That seems to be a good solution.

I think he should invite the same reporter to ask the same question and answer it honestly. Then I would maybe consider it a "sincere" apology.

Re: “Montana Democrats just got their ass handed to them. What will it take to get this party started?

The only way the Democratic party can ever hope to be winners again, at least at the national level, is to divorce itself from the Wall Street Bloodsuckers and rid themselves of the existing party "establishment". By that, I mean the Clinton cartel, which has run the party - into the ground - since Elvis' reign. Get back to representing Real People, not pandering to Big Money.

Several years ago, a talking head on one of the Sunday AM TV shows quoted Harry Truman as saying, "When you give a person the choice between voting for a real Republican and a Democrat who acts like a Republican, he'll chose the real thing every time." A truism that they've obviously forgotten.

Re: “Is the Revenue Department ready for Montana's weed tax tidal wave?

Good suggestion Mr. Strandberg, unfortunately legalizing marijuana sales throughout the state would do nothing to reduce the potential of Federal enforcement that inhibits financial service providers from working with dispensaries and growers.

Mr. Brooks, did you look at how Colorado, Washington, the state of Oregon, and cities like Portland receive cash tax payments? The tone of this article implies Gene Walborn is underestimating the lift, but I'm not sure the Montana Dept. of Revenue needs to become a bank to make it work. I'm not sure where you're coming from with the implication, and can't see what you read in the Billings Gazette because they have some sort of survey-paywall I'm not gonna complete.

Montana's contribution to the classic and approved political practice of buying an election. It sure makes Montana look like the 'ass' mentioned in a previous article.

Re: “The Mountain Water purchase is almost final. But if you want to see how the city managed to spend $7.37 million on legal bills, you're going to have to wait.

He had originally said the lawyers fees would be around $400,000 and would not be paid until the city owned the company. The lawyers were getting their fees paid as soon as Townsend said the city could condemn the water company. I look at this as buying a house or car, you never hand over the keys until you get paid so the lawyers should never have gotten paid until the city had the keys in their hands.

The way I see it, look at what will be representing Montana in congress. This, unfortunately, is obviously what we stand for, whether it is an ass or a hump.
