Yeah, we all know there’s no funding for people that can’t take care of themselves.
As a person that can take care of himself…how am I supposed to feel about this?
I guess if I’m a Democrat I should feel bad and make hay and, if I’m lucky, get some campaign donations out of the whole deal.
And then if I’m a Republican it’s chastising and pointing the finger, and if I’m real lucky, getting’ some campaign donations out of the whole deal.
Yep, the money.
- It’s a commonality.
- It’s a necessity.
- It’s the tie that binds.
If you asked me what’s the biggest commonality between Democrats and Republicans, I’d tell you it’s their insatiable appetite for all that’s green.
We’re well past the stage of bending over backwards.
These days it’s reach-arounds galore.
And my how they love it.
And we put up with it.
Over 11,000 lobbyist’s and their firms spent $3.3 billion lobbying Congress in 2017.
And we know $4.8 million was spent lobbying the MT Legislature the last go-round.
My those are sorry folks – both the schmucks in Washington and the jokes that show up in Helena every two years.
Yeah, they think they’re important, and they think they’re helping you.
You just can’t fix ignorance, and trying to overcome cluelessness is damn hard.
And yet they persist…these people that pretent to know about our lives, and our problems, and what we ‘need.’
What’s especially sad is that we elect these assholes. Then they become our ‘leaders.’
My God, are we fucked up.
And…the Other Stories
I could die happy tomorrow if I didn’t have to hear anymore about Sperry Chalet.
Right there with that fancy word you should be keyed-off that this is a rich-man’s locale.
And my God do they want to fix that.
Oh, the walls are still standing! The walls are still standing! Glory be to God!!!
At this point it’s just a media spectacle, one to please the Kentucky Derby crowd.
That’s about all that can afford to hike up to the place, and stay there.
It’s a rich man’s world, and the Montana media has eaten it up. If only they’d stop regurgitating it up on all of us that actually keep this state running.
I see that the latest campaign finance reports for Montana candidates are now out.
Diane Sands is running in SD 49. She raised $18,000 and spent $3,000.
Her GOP opponent, Chase Reynolds, has raised $1,700 and hasn’t spent a dime.
I don’t know if you can hear me laughing right now…but what a joke!
$18,000 vs. $1,700.
How do ya think it’s gonna turn out?
The SD 49 race shows us quite clearly that some people are politicians, and some are not.
Before these reports came out, I thought Reynolds had a chance. I no longer think that.
Also in Missoula news...the campaign signs.
Two weeks ago I went to Josh Slotnick's website. I used the contact form to tell him I'd like a campaign sign.
I wasn't a fan of Jean Curtiss for County Commissioner, but now I'll probably vote for her.
I didn't want to, but when it's blatantly obvious that your political-wanabees don't give a flying fuck about you, what choice do you have?
There’s a lot of media reports about how corrupt or biased or hacked our national media is.
Never do we point out the obvious, however:
Our corporate media is nothing more than street-level pushers for highly addictive, and highly lethal pharmaceutical drugs.
Just watch the NBC Nightly News tonight – you’ll get 18 minutes of news and 12 minutes of drug ads.
We’re so used to these ads now that we don’t even joke about the various side effects they list:
Stomach bleeding, suicidal thoughts, risk of stroke and heart attack, and…we don’t like to list this on the ads…but we’ll bleed your bank account dry as well.
It’s a $4.5 billion industry.
Boy do we eat that shit up.
