» Guess we won’t be able to trust his memoir: Dolin’s done an excellent job of undermining his entire book, especially the “nonfiction” part. If this guy can’t be kind to himself, what does that say about the rest of us? Next you’re gonna tell us that Forest Boy isn’t real … Oh God No.
The only reason I can explain it to you is I am not a fan of our president, but this goes beyond not being a fan. I didn’t send it as racist, although that’s what it is. I sent it out because it’s anti-Obama.Montana-based Federal Judge Richard Cebull • Discussing why he forwarded an e-mail featuring a joke that involved bestiality and Obama’s mom — a joke that was widely seen as racist. “Normally I don’t send or forward a lot of these, but even by my standards, it was a bit touching,” the George W. Bush appointee wrote on the e-mail. “I want all of my friends to feel what I felt when I read this. Hope it touches your heart like it did mine.” The e-mail leaked to the press when it kept getting forwarded along and eventually reached the inbox of a Great Falls Tribune reporter. ”This is a private thing that was, to say the least, very poor judgment on my part,” the judge said after the e-mail reached said reporter. Ya think?
Basically, it affirmed what we were all seeing on the streets, which is the average Missoulian wanted to have their voice heard … and they want their elected officials to fix the problem of corporate personhood. So I hope this message is heard and we get started on fixing the problem.Missoula, Montana Councilwoman Cynthia Wolken • Discussing her successful efforts last week to get a referendum passed in her city against the concept of corporate personhood, which was codified with the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision. While the vote — which had a 75/25 split at the polls — wasn’t binding, it is one step in the direction of encouraging Congress to pass an amendment to help fix the system, and one small push in a larger national movement.

I could best describe him as a bully. He’s one of those people you’re constantly dealing with — confrontations with law enforcement, confrontations with neighborsChuck Curry, the county sheriff in Flathead County, Montanna • He’s talking about a guy named David Burgert, someone formerly in charge of a militia that wants to go to war with the National Guard and overthrow the government. Apparently, Burgert got in a shootout with police and then ran into the woods. They’ve been looking for him since the shootout happened Sunday, and they’ve only found stashes of guns and food. Let’s hope this guy doesn’t end up overthrowing our government any time soon. We’re shaking in our boots. source (via • follow)
