    MT residents thoughts on Steve Bullock

    It's pretty easy to find a way to like Bullock, as he is the embodiment of an old fashioned true American, a real Montanan, as well as a public servant who has served as Attorney General, then Governor for the people of Montana ... all of the people, regardless of political bent.

    Sleeping peacefully in griz country

    "It's an interesting thought about the use of cayenne pepper." Perhaps it warrants aerial spraying of backcountry campsites with a mixture of cayenne pepper and tabasco sauce.:D Suddenly the wilderness backpacking experience seems less appealing as cayenne pepper potentially permeates...

    NRA On The Hot Seat - Exposed or Attacked?

    What truly makes communications platforms interesting is the difference in perspectives. Obviously NRA and firearms comments such as mine stir your ire. Your questions in response seem very serious, but come across to me as silly in lacking logical construction. Unfortunately our disparate...

    Overview of Federal Land controls and States Issues

    E-Rock, I meant no offense and apologize if it came across as an attack. The intent was to clarify that the western states could not "get back" what they never owned. The earlier "sagebrush rebellion" and the more recent Bundy followers continue to assert that the lands belong to the states...

    "... at statehood, the western states ceded control of those lands at state hood." FALSE! Western states never held / owned those lands. The western lands belonged to the Federal government through the Louisiana Purchase and other acquisitions. Thus the Fed govt cannot give land BACK to...
