You can call them ISIL, and they still don’t scare me.
I’m sorry, but some young boys running around with guns in the Middle East while trying to lure disaffected Western youth…well, that doesn’t keep me up at night.
I don’t bite my nails over suicide attacks, I don’t worry about someone beheading someone at the mall, and I sure don’t fret about a lone wolf attack.
I live in Montana, and we’re so far from the regular concerns of most people that this stuff affects me not at all.
Well, that’s not quite true. Even though I’m not affected by these young, disgruntled men 6,477 miles away, I’m still paying to fight them. Yeah, we’ve already pissed away nearly $3 billion, or $9.1 million a day fighting ISIS.
What a waste of money!
This doesn’t benefit me, and I sure as hell don’t know why Senator Tester is supporting this. Maybe he isn’t voting for it, and that’s great, but I wish to hell that he’d get more vocal about this. After all, one of his main jobs is looking after veterans. That’s a helluva lot easier if we stop making veterans!
I’m not even going to waste any electronic ink chastising Steve Daines and Ryan Zinke. Those two nimrods are bought-and-paid-for chumps. Their main job is to piss away as much American blood and treasure as they can.
- Steve Daines’ job is the frontman for outsourcing. He needs to eliminate as many blue collar jobs as he can, and when he gets that done, he can start in on the white collar, shipping them over to India call centers. He’s a terrible American, a terrible Montanan, and historians will remember that, because they look at facts and not bullshit.
- Ryan Zinke is Marc Racicot’s puppet. Now, I don’t know that for sure, but Racicot was Zinke’s idol, the former SEAL went to him for advice, and bada bing, bada boom, he’s a fucking Congressman. I suspect Racicot wanted to get back into the action, and like those things from Invasion of the Body Snatchers, he made his move (the 1978 film is of course the best).
Both of those bozos are completely worthless to you and I, but they are good at wasting American life and money. Zinke is damn near foaming at the mouth to lead a charge into ISIS-held lands. Of course, he’ll be leading the funding charge in Congress, as that’s about all he can be trusted to handle these days.
So I hope Tester starts getting isolationist on us. Hey, that’s not a bad word – it means Americans live and our money isn’t wasted. We need to be taxing corporations more so we have money to fix roads and bridges and create the world’s best broadband system, or something even better.
That’s bad for the multinational corporations that run things in this country, however. Montana is a commodity and resource state, so our job is to shut the hell up and mine stuff and grow stuff – that’s all we’re good for to them.
I think we need to tell those guys to go jump in a lake. We should take this country back. I wish to hell Senator Tester would get vocal, get pissed, and start speaking his mind.
He’s still on the good side…right?
What the hell happened with that California Interstate fire? We had some serious shit there. And hey, the state is flooding now! But not to worry; the drought will take 4-years worth of rain to go away. California is still screwed!
That must benefit someone, that California is screwed. You’d think we could develop a vast system of pipes and canals to solve this, but since we gave up on funding infrastructure in this state, that’s not an option.
Oh, and let me just go ahead and remind everyone that we could have had all the infrastructure we’d wanted if Bullock would have kept his office door open and discussed using our cash instead of borrowing money. But he closed the door that taxpayers paid for, and didn’t allow any of the representatives that taxpayers sent to Helena to talk to him to…well, talk to him.
Gosh, and then we had the Montana Democratic Party try to blame the GOP for that? Shit. I guess you can print up a bunch of posters with Romney Hall and the proposed Historical Society Building and go around the state and rile up voters, but I feel you’ll just rile them up for the GOP.
Yeah, you’re in the minority! Don’t act all fucking surprised when you’re put in your place and told that!
Can I tell you something? You really have to laugh at Montana politics sometimes, especially when the children try to blame their mistakes on the other children, even though you were watching the classroom the whole time! That’s what Helena is – a fishbowl that doesn’t think it’s a fishbowl.
When the hell did feelings become so fucking important? Are they more important than putting food on the table? How about more important than some kid getting healthcare? What about some old person’s ability to live in their home, not fearing their fixed income won’t keep up with tax increases?
I’m so sick of people worrying about feelings. Buy a dog!
Feelings…shit. We’ve got tons of people that have given up looking for jobs, they’re sleeping on the street and in homeless camps, and they sure as shit aren’t voting.
Piss them off, hurt their feelings, tell them what you think! Get that red blood flowing and get people excited and interested and acting! Change things instead of just talking about it! Do something!
