He then added, "Our club is named after our annual ritual of tracking and killing a homeless person that we release into Yellowstone National Park".

Wow that's a funny idea, perhaps they should make a movie about it!

Starring the acting prowess of Ice-T nonetheless.

//For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about
2004-12-31 07:37:11 PM  
Catch 22. You can't be that rich and want to join a millionaire's club without being a jerk.
2004-12-31 09:05:56 PM  
How about a place for nice hundredaires

LEVEL 2 - that's called "TEH GHETTO"

"I'm not impressed by a person's money," said Blixseth-*cough* Bullcrap *cough*

leaving Blixseth and his wife with a stretch of undeveloped land that they originally intended to turn into a family compound.-Anyone say Waco, Texas?

Everybody that busts their ass and makes some money isn't necessarily evil. SOME of us actually took more time to get there because we kicked money to relatives that aren't grateful and charities because we grew up in mobile homes and KNOW what poor means.

/just saying
2005-01-01 03:36:29 AM  
My parents had a $3 million house built there and sold it for 5 million 2 years later. now they won't let my parents back in.
2005-01-01 03:36:55 AM  
I noticed that one of the wives mentioned in the article was an artist and her husband was building her a studio.

Seriously, StretchCannon, I'm a single white female artist and I appreciate how hard you've worked for your money.

/just sayin
2005-01-01 03:37:35 AM  
That's right snobbish biatches, stay outta Montana ;)
2005-01-01 03:38:39 AM  
So in the meantime, your parents became jerks?

/Who are they to judge?
2005-01-01 03:40:11 AM  
Ooops that was addressed to WhatPeopleAreReallyThinking
2005-01-01 03:41:16 AM  
ha-ha your poor!
2005-01-01 03:42:18 AM  
New money. Go away, you bother me.
2005-01-01 03:45:54 AM  
Guess there won't be any Texans there.

/from Texas
2005-01-01 03:46:43 AM  
Made a two million dollar profit from a house... Aww, there's something to complain about.
2005-01-01 03:49:04 AM  
Too smart to touch that one.

I'm just going to keep popping out babies until I'm set for life.
2005-01-01 03:49:46 AM  
People who would join this club should be shot for being detrimental to society's well-being.
2005-01-01 04:05:37 AM  
Omegamerc poor, yes, but culturally, I'm on high ground.
2005-01-01 04:11:19 AM  
million means jack shiat today
now billion, thats walking around money
2005-01-01 04:39:04 AM  
I don't know if I would fit in. When I'm up in the mountains setting around the campfire, eating my beans, I like to be able to lift my leg and send the ground squirrels scurrying for their burrows.
2005-01-01 04:58:49 AM  
Oh my god, that is so awesome!

/I'm there
//In about 10 years
///If they still have any openings
////But they probably won't
//So I'll join his next development then
2005-01-01 05:05:09 AM  
I'll be the one laughing once they're all burning in Hell.
2005-01-01 05:11:46 AM  
Anyone that raves about Montana obviously hasn't been there or lived there for any substantial amount of time.

It's Alberta, without the nightlife. And that's saying something.
2005-01-01 05:42:08 AM  
Hiking trails? Fishing? Wow, you really get exclusive entertainment for your $3 million.
2005-01-01 07:05:17 AM  
If I ever found myself wealthy (working on it, but Rome wasn't built in a day) I'd like to think I could do without all of this kind of crap.
2005-01-01 07:48:23 AM  
These outdoor amenitites sound wonderful, but I think the place has 3 weeks of warm weather and 47 weeks of below zero temperature. I don't see the "Wonderland" here.
2005-01-01 07:53:01 AM  
They dissed Ellison. Ergo, they are cool.
Let them enjoy their playground.
2005-01-01 08:31:11 AM  
I wouldn't lower myself to carry their skies....
2005-01-01 09:03:15 AM  
When I meet one I'll tag it and track it for them.

Montana? It's bigger than Florida and Georgia combined* and it has one area code. I mean, I hate people but I need to see one once in a while. Not to mention what the female situation must be like.

*stay away, geography nazis. I don't know exactly how big Montana is. But it really does only have one area code.
2005-01-01 09:05:28 AM  
I'm not impressed by a person's money," said Blixseth, who with his wife, Edra, is beginning to turn a profit on their $200-million investment in the resort.

So he looks at the 250k fee and the 1 mil + home purchase with ... indifference?
2005-01-01 09:23:36 AM  
eat the rich.
I say we over run this gated community, trash everything, burn it all down and hang all the greedy farks for being shiatty human beings.
What? The revolution hasn't started yet?
Okay, I'll wait...
2005-01-01 10:43:05 AM  
Imagining a world with "no jerks allowed" in:
Movie Theaters
Spectator Sports
Parking Lots

Jerks would be allowed in bars as they provide entertainment value.

You'll never catch ME there :-P While I'm sure the company is great, I love glass, steel, and concrete. I like to be wall to wall with my fellow man too, and that sounds like a really sparse population.

/Give me the 50th floor of a skyscraper in Manhattan, any day.
2005-01-01 11:06:06 AM  
Yeah, I wonder what they do up there in the wintertime. Stay inside mostly, then drive their cars from one heated garage to another? Must be like living on Mars.
2005-01-01 11:15:01 AM  
If I could afford it, I would be there. Montana has some of the best fishing I have ever experienced. After spending 2.75 years in Afghanistan and Iraq, I could use the peace and quiet.
2005-01-01 11:33:18 AM  
Yeah, they're so nice so they think that they don't have to follow rules and law like everyone else. A couple of years ago, when half of the state was going up in wildfire flames, they swindled themselves a permit to shoot off huge fireworks out in the forest so they could impress the governor.

"Ooops that was addressed to WhatPeopleAreReallyThinking"

-Admit it, it was addressed to anybody with a decent bank account who might be interested...
/I keed, I KEED...
2005-01-01 11:44:43 AM  
sounds like a bunch of yellow-bellied liberals to me

/can i join?
2005-01-01 12:25:09 PM  
What kind of bizarro world deems Bill Gates to be a nice guy?
2005-01-01 12:41:10 PM  
For benchmarking:

$3 million = rich

$40 million = substantial wealth
2005-01-01 01:03:57 PM  
Dear Jerk-

$1 billion = You can afford to hide your loot so well no one knows how much you really have....
2005-01-01 02:10:45 PM  
Holy shiat, my sister is going there this week...and getting paid for it. She's babysitting this family's two kids. That's amazing.
2005-01-01 03:59:59 PM  
22 square miles = about 4.4 miles by five miles if it's rectangular. How do you "discreetly" patrol that with a helicopter? If you're right in the middle, the chopper is no more than 2.5 miles away.
