I feel so bad for the 80 people that could be impacted by all that.

They're gonna strip mine the entire state.

Wait until the people who support this realize they're downstream somebody. Or downwind.

Since the 80s, Republicans have become the party of stupid moronic christofascist assholes.  They dug a hole of stupid and have kept digging all the way to Stupidtown.

Naido: Trying to convince me that Montana isn't a hoax?


I drove through part of it once, so I know the land is there.

I may not have seen any people besides the cars on the road, though.  It was also a very steep downhill drive to Washington State.

Thank you! I've been saying this for decades. I live in a tourist (trap) state a d I've never met anyone from Montana. They're called "Big Sky Country" to cleverly disguise the fact that there's nothing but air there.

And none of the people this is going to screw will EVER figure out that they need to vote against the GQPers.

Don't worry, they also have plans to continue the usual GQP ratfarkery.

~30% of Montana is Federal/public land.  That means we own it.  Get your fkn cattle off of it, stop logging and mining it.

Conservatives are so stupid they don't understand that half of their amendments contradict and are in direct opposition to the other half.

Well, they'll probably restrict voting rights to get John Tester out of office.

These people seem awfully shortsighted. Don't they realize that if they overlog and pollute their waterways, it will have long term consequences?

Sounds like a real Galtian shiathole.

Except. For every dollar they send upstream they get $1.47 back in Federal spending.

25% of the State is on Medicaid, $6 billion in grants, on and on.

Seems that the States that whine most about the Federal Government are always first in line at the slop trough.

Who cares about the next generation?  Planet's doomed anyway, right?  May as well wreck as much if it as we can as soon as we can before those pinko commie hippies lobby for keeping the landscape pretty, the waterways healthy, and the world a better place.

Always love how the open market will fix everything, but the disclaimer is always "if there is profit to be had".  There is no profit in cleanup.  Just ask Nestlé.

It is very pretty there, but that looks like a place to get the hell away from ASAP based on the perceived need to rewrite the state constitution in their own image.

The folks who go to Jackson Hole will have their private jets go someplace else when the state is a complete shaithole. Oh, wait, that's in a different empty state. No loss then.

The Idaho legislature, with its 83% GOP supermajority, wonders why Montana is taking so long.

Only when you read the headlines.  The text itself usually has nothing to do with the subject.  And that is all in lockstep.

With the inalienable right to property, I'm guessing major polluters.

And now they control the supreme court and house of reps and pretty much the entire national narrative.

Doesn't really speak well of your country does it?

He was a member of the Russian naval officer corps.  GOP-run Montana would be just his speed.

Ya, it doesn't mean much without knowing text behind the subject line.

We've got a governor who believes the Earth is 6,000 years old and attacks reporters, one Congressman who campaigns with the Oath Keepers and the other one is Trump's disgraced Interior secretary Ryan Zinke, an attorney general who seems to spend half his budget arguing right-wing causes outside of the state and a top education commissioner who was ticketed last spring for passing a stopped school bus.
Not even Idaho can beat that line-up.
