It’s hard for me to do these things, as I have one of those telecommuting jobs that Greg Gianforte was drumming up support for earlier this year.
Pretty much, that means I work everyday, have no days off, have no benefits, and have to answer emails from employers at all times. What I want to do or anything in my personal life doesn’t enter into it – I live in poverty and do what I’m told and should be damn thankful for it.
So that’s telecommuting and freelance writing, in a nutshell. I was able to take a break from that for a couple hours, and here are some images of that.
You can find all of that information on KGVO’s website. I looked for economic impact statements of county fairs for Montana, but could find nothing. I looked for America, but only Oregon feels it’s important to record this info. I guess our own state agencies are too busy with…I dunno, looking after that gargantuan surplus that’s collecting dust. Oh, and when I say surplus, I mean your money, the money you could have invested in the stock market or kept collecting dust in the bank.
Anyways, my son and I rode our bikes up there. I paid $6 to get in, which I felt was a ripoff, and then $18 for 20 tickets for rides, which I felt was a mega-ripoff. That got us three rides.
After that they had lots of other animals, plus some craft items and such. Mostly it was rides and then some rodeo stuff, which we didn’t pay to enter.
That’s about all we or other parents in America can ask. You can’t expect much else in this country anymore, just a quiet night occasionally, a little fun for your kids, and a lot of grief in between.
