I love the Repubs saying keep government out of my healthcare, then turning around and requiring a woman to have an intrusive and unnecessary medical exam, which she will no doubt pay for, if she wants to terminate a pregnancy. Lord knows, that is the government intruding in medical care.

Idiotic bills are introduced in every legislature. They are often intended to appease a specific group of morans who vote. Sometimes they are just intended to make one reality challenged donor happy. Do not panic when you see one of these bills. I only hold the legislature responsible for what they pass, not the nonsense they propose.

Here in Montana, it costs about $2500 for a bill to be heard. So when they are advancing an idea, knowing it is going nowhere, they should be required to pony up their own damn money. In his first year in Helena, John Sinrud from Bozeman proposed 23 bills, admitting that he knew all of them were destined to fail. Thats over $50,000 of taxpayer money he wasted, just to advance his deranged ideas. Same moran that ran an architecture firm here in Bozeman, with no licensed architect on the staff. And he got shut down, of course blaming liberals that were out to get him. What a butt munch.
If they are spending our money to advance an idea that is destined to fail, them and their backers should pony up the cash, instead of us taxpayers footing the bill for their little games. If the bill gets out of committee, they get their money back. If not, I hope it was worth their cash to make a point, cause they ain't seeing it again.

Last week the legislature spent a session discussing "The Code of the West". I am not making this up. "Ride for the Brand" was one of the key phrases. I guess in the old days, when we all followed "The code of the West", no horses were ever stolen, they always hung the right guy when one was stolen, and I'm guessing no one got pregnant out of wedlock because no one had sex out of wedlock. Apparently, one of our legislators read a book. Now that IS something. Both parties were guilty of wasting time on that bunch of poop.

Today they were discussing getting the US out of the UN. I'm thrilled to see how much time they're all spending on jobs.

Amorette,
Believe that "rideing for the brand" is indeed an old western cowboy saying. It means when you were hired on you pledged your allegence to the outfit,right or wrong. An "esprit de corps" if you will. For a better understanding read WE POINTED THEM NORTH by "Teddy Blue" Abbott.

Posted by Amorette Allison (+12383) 11 years ago
I have read "We Pointed Them North" but the point is that the "Code of the West" these idiots are promoting is a waste of time and money and is an empty gesture on the part of politicians to make themselves "look" as if they doing "something" when they are actually doing nothing.

And remember, you were loyal to your employer while you were employed. When you reached the end of the trail, you were unemployed and your loyalty to your boss stopped. So, loyal to your job as long as you have it is not some big philosophic statement.

Plus the idea that you back your employer even if he is doing something unethical, immoral or illegal is a bad idea. You shouldn't have to sell your principles, and that is what this whole "Ride for the Brand" idea is, for money. Loyalty based on a paycheck is loyalty bought and paid for.

AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GOVERNING THE STATE!!!! It is political grandstanding. NOT GOVERNANCE.

Please, please, please, would politicians stop with the dog and pony shows and actually try to solve some problems. Is that too much to ask?

Sadly,for some injecting political ideology into a discussion of the old west phrase "Rideing For The Brand" is somehow skewed. Is there something wrong with old time values? Must we continue to read something that isn't there nor intended? Cynicism for cynicism's sake.

Actually, the book quoted is COWBOY ETHICS by James P. Owen also the author in the same vein, COWBOY VALUES and THE TRY. By chance he is also a Wall street veteran. Maybe,actually reading the book or books will set your mind at ease. The Miles City library may have them or at least will be available thru inter-library loan. Believe they are also available if you have an ipod.

And then there's this:

http://www.northernbroadc...geted.aspx

I'm a little confused by the concept of "misapplying" the first clause of the 14th amendment:
Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.


I asked the learned constitutional scholars on mc.home this question as well, but it may be a while before they reply, so I'll bring it up here: where's the confusion? It looks pretty straightforward to me.

here is a quote for you socialists..." I would rather be in jail in america than free any where else." you need to know that he was exiled to communist countries, one of them cuba..

he then went on to say this..."I was wrong and the black panthers were wrong....we are inside the system and I feel that the number one objective for black america is to recognize that they have the same equal rights under the constitution as ford and rockefeller, even if we have no blue chip stocks. but our membership in the United States is the supreme blue chip stock and the one we have to exercise."

this man thought along the same lines you liberals do, and after living in the countries that yall think the united states should become he came to realize his errors in his thinking...so why dont you communists move to one of these great nations you want the united states to emulate and then decide...your ideology is going to destroy, what he realized through experience to be true, the greatest nation to exist on the earth... you STUPID traitors....stupid stupid stupid

The Republicans think the 14th amendment is misapplied because its not being applied the way they think it should be applied.

The 14th amendment has no exceptions, so in order to deny citizenship, they'll have to amend the constitution.

I did love that article, Bill. Why, it stands to reason if sea level rises 20 feet and vast coastal areas are flooded, then all those displaced people will have to move to Montana and our property values will consequently go up. Its a win-win for everyone!

The mtcowgirl site has a nice countdown of the wingnut bills:

1. Legalize hunting with hand-thrown spear (Senate Bill 112)

2. Create fully-armed militia in every town (House Bill 278)

3. Allow legislators to carry weapons in the Capitol (Senate Bill 279)

4. Create an 11 person panel with authority to nullify all federal laws (House Bill 382)

5 Allow guns in schools (House Bill 558)

6. Eliminate educational requirements for persons seeking job of State Superintendent of Schools (HB 154)

7. Lift nuclear ban for purpose of building a nuclear reactor in the Flathead Valley (House Bill 326)

8. Withdraw the United States of America from the United Nations (Senate Joint Resolution 2)

9. Eliminate all state incentives for developing wind power (House Bill 244)

10. Omit Barak Obama's name from the 2012, ballot because his father was born outside of America (House Bill 205)(this guy was on CNN this week)

11. Compulsory marriage counseling for people seeking a divorce (House Bill 438)

12. Give sheriffs authority over the federal government in terror investigations (Senate Bill 114)

13. Legalize hunting with silencers (House Bill 174)

14. Lift the prohibition on carrying concealed weapons in bars, churches and banks (House Bill 384)

15. Eliminate law that requires landlords to install carbon monoxide detectors (House Bill 354)

16. Require the federal government to prove in court that the National Parks were lawfully aquired. (House Bill 506)

17. Officially designate the "Code of the West" as the "Code of Montana" (Senate Bill 216)

I sometimes read the threads here for a good chuckle and sometimes get overly annoyed, that's when I hit that little "x" at the top right hand side of the screen and walk away like some others should do but never post anything. TIL NOW, sorry its super long but I have a few things to comment on.

Aaron, your comments on 2/11 about, Eldridge Cleaver are rather confusing and I am not sure if you know much about Mr. Cleaver or if you are just vomiting information you've heard hoping it all comes together. Regardless,This is what I know. Mr. Cleaver was arrested in 1957 for committing rape and was convicted of assault with intent to murder. While in prison he wrote numerous essays, which later were published as "Soul on Ice", in these essays he acknowledges committing rape on black women, in which he considered practice for rapes he later committed on white women. This was a sick person. In other writings, after he served prison time, he comments on joining the Black Panther Party due to their commitment to armed struggle (aka guerrilla warfare). Cleaver later jumped bail and fled to Cuba, after ambushing Oakland police officers. He later went to Algeria. Cleaver didn't leave the "communist" Black Panther Party; he left the armed Black Panther Party because he didn't want to put down the weapons, while the rest of the party leaders felt the need to in response with government sanctions against other radical groups. The violence was the primary motive behind Cleaver joining the Black Panther, and the primary reason for him splitting with the party. Cleaver then returned to America and became a "born again" Christian, and repudiated his radical past which helped in his sentencing of only probation for the assault in which he fled the country to Cuba.
So Aaron you think because Mr. Cleaver said the Black Panther Party is wrong, that he was no longer a communist? Do you think he actually told the truth once he came back from Algeria or was he just appeasing the courts hoping for no jail time? I believe he talked bad about the Black Panther Party and other communists groups just as many of us talk bad about any relationship or group that we split up with due to conflicting philosophies of achieving a goal, not mentioning helping him with his court case. And in response to your comment "so what do you think about elderadge cleaver? someone that has lived the life you want???" I really don't know anyone on this thread but doubt anyone wants to live the life of a violent serial rapist. Correct me if I'm wrong people. I know this convo is irrelevant now but I see where Aaron was going with it (Cleaver was a commie went to a commie country hated it and came back not a commie. Right?), just a bad example though.

What does everyone think about the Unions in WI??

"Top 10 Shocking Attacks from the GOP War on Women"

"1) Republicans not only want to reduce women's access to abortion care, they're actually trying to redefine rape. After a major backlash, they promised to stop. But they haven't.

2) A state legislator in Georgia wants to change the legal term for victims of rape, stalking, and domestic violence to "accuser." But victims of other less gendered crimes, like burglary, would remain "victims."

3) In South Dakota, Republicans proposed a bill that could make it legal to murder a doctor who provides abortion care. (Yep, for real.)

4) Republicans want to cut nearly a billion dollars of food and other aid to low-income pregnant women, mothers, babies, and kids.

5) In Congress, Republicans have proposed a bill that would let hospitals allow a woman to die rather than perform an abortion necessary to save her life.

6) Maryland Republicans ended all county money for a low-income kids' preschool program. Why? No need, they said. Women should really be home with the kids, not out working.

7) And at the federal level, Republicans want to cut that same program, Head Start, by $1 billion. That means over 200,000 kids could lose their spots in preschool.

8) Two-thirds of the elderly poor are women, and Republicans are taking aim at them too. A spending bill would cut funding for employment services, meals, and housing for senior citizens.

9) Congress voted yesterday on a Republican amendment to cut all federal funding from Planned Parenthood health centers, one of the most trusted providers of basic health care and family planning in our country.

10) And if that wasn't enough, Republicans are pushing to eliminate all funds for the only federal family planning program. (For humans. But Republican Dan Burton has a bill to provide contraception for wild horses. You can't make this stuff up)."

What is appalling is that in the 21st century, the Republicans are determined to turn back the clock and make women second class citizens whose only purpose is to breed and obey.

Seriously, I would like a Republican to explain WHY women are deserving of this abuse. Why poor women and children are to be treated as if they were a scourge upon the earth? Are men so threatened by women that they must go back to treating us like chattel in order to affirm their pitiful egos?

All of them are pure hyperbole, but this one's my favorite

6) Maryland Republicans ended all county money for a low-income kids' preschool program. Why? No need, they said. Women should really be home with the kids, not out working.


One, is a county now obligated to fund preschool? Is any county that doesn't really saying "Women should really be home with the kids, not out working?" If so, I'd think some of you progressives are living in the wrong place. I doubt there are many counties that fund preschools. If one felt it could no longer afford to do so, that's hardly worth national attention, which brings me to

Two, this is one county among thousands in the US. I could make a top-10 list just of crap that came out of the People's Republic of Berkeley in the last year that could outdo what moveon.org spent countless hours researching nationwide.

I do believe Custer County has pre-school programs at Highland Park, Jefferson and Garfield schools, not sure if county helps with funding at Head Start or not. That said, there may be different definitions of pre-school programs here and that may be part of the misunderstanding. I suspect that is part of the conflict in ideas. We all have our own vision of what others are talking about and they may not be close to what the one talking is envisioning.

As far as COUNTY funding goes for preschool, I'd be pretty surprised if our county offers any. That's not to say preschool doesn't exist in the county. But the Maryland county in question isn't preschool-free either.

But now the standard is if any county doesn't pay for pre-school, it's sending its women back to the virtual kitchen. Seems like the progressives better get busy liberating most, if not all, Montana counties.

Is there any evidence this has ever actually happened anywhere? Is a hospital obligated to perform an abortion under current law? I would doubt it.

She could've easily found another hospital willing to do the procedure. Hospitals turn away patients outside of their areas of practice all the time. The idea that all facilities should offer abortion, even from a strictly medical (if not ethical) standpoint isn't credible.

What if a doctor feels medically or ethically unable to perform an "emergency" abortion? Are you going to strip their license? Maybe a little jail time?

What if the woman dies awaiting medical attention? What do you say to the survivors? Gee, I'm glad your high standards weren't compromised but this woman is dead. Is that murder? Allowing a person to die for lack of medical attention? Hospitals used to turn people of the 'wrong' race away and allowed them to die for lack of medical attention and we eventually saw that as wrong.

This is not a case of a woman wanting an abortion. This a case of a woman who will DIE without an abortion. She will die and the fetus is already dead or dying. So, what would you say? Let her bleed to death on my floor because I will not use my skills to save her?

Extreme? Yes, but these cases do occur. And when you say it is okay to allow a woman to die because you are offended by the procedure necessary to save her life, then I wonder just how highly you judge life.

Hate to tell you Amorette, but what moveon.org is accusing Dirty Republicanses of is basically already the law of the land.

Even President Obama's proposed new federal Conscience Clause revisions don't go so far as to demand Abortion from those who don't want to provide it. Where's the moveon.org outrage there?

If this is what you thought I was proposing, you are mistaken. I simply meant to show you that there are indeed cases where an abortion is required to save the life of the mother. You had stated doubt about that fact. I have no problem with doctors who don't want to do abortions due to their belief systems. I do however think that if the doctor on call in the ER won't do the procedure there should be a back-up doctor on hand who will.

I didn't say I doubted that women in some situations risked their lives by going through with a pregnancy. Pregnancy in and of itself has risks.

I mostly doubted that there were many scenarios where an immediate abortion would help, and couldn't wait to be transferred to a facility that did them.

I think Catholic Health Care is the largest private health care provider in the country. And for the most part, none of them do abortions. And I think most of them would rather shut their doors first.

If a woman is bleeding to death, minutes count. I realize that the life of a woman is nothing compared to the principles of a man so she deserves to bleed to death because she had a undetected uterine deformity that was causing the placenta to detach and bleed. In that case, of course she should die so that no man is forced to do something against his will. Fortunately for my friend, the hospital she was rushed to was willing to perform the necessary procedure and she is alive today.

I'm really not sure what you're getting at with the 'principles of a man' or 'no man' stuff. I'm not sure if that's the 'only men are pro-life' stereotype or the 'doctors are men' stereotype coming through.

But lately, I think women as a demographic have trended more pro-life than men.

And women are definitely the vast majority of new OB/GYNs. I'm guessing they probably have a large majority overall in the field, but if not, they will shortly.

Or are you saying that most 'Women' doctors would never object to performing an abortion like a 'Man' doctor would?

People, remember these idiots and vote them out of office in 2012.

The other day my mom and I had a "My idiots are stupider than your idiots" competition. We decided it was a tie.

This is by far the worste legislative session I have seen in my life.
I also hope the voters remember how this bunch wasted this session and embarressed the state on the national scale with the retarded legislation they came up with. They created no jobs and in fact got rid of the medical marijuana industry that actually had created some jobs and grew and sold a montana product to people who now have to go back to buying it imported from the drug cartels who really are the criminals. But my biggest hope is we have a large turnout at the next election and send some reasonable and intellegent people to Helena next time. Leif

I forget who said this, but it certainly sums up this last legislative session. "Those who are too smart to engage in politics are destined to be governed by those who are dumber."

Bad decisions and goofball politics are occurring on both sides of the aisle at all levels of government (check out your local School District Board for an example) and in all communities of all states across our country.

This is not only evidence of an electoral system that is in imbalance now with Birthers and Death Panel Paranoics turning out in droves while more rational people stay home and ---- RATIONALIZE that their vote doesn't mean anything. It is a serious threat to the economic health of our nation and the well-being of future generations.

And whose fault is all of this? My guess is the fault lies in three arenas:

1) Lack of True Leadership: We need statesmen & women, NOT politicians and certainly not celebrities pretending to be politicins whose ego-stroking only further muddies the waters, making it ever harder to have a productive conversation about real issues.

2) A Mainstream Media that no longer has the intelligence to distinguish news from rumor-mongering and focuses way too heavily on entertainment vs. education. Put another way, media mogus are far too concerned with generating profits for a few instead of creating value for all involved.

3) The age old problem of American voter apathy, made all the more evident by witnessing people in Egypt and elsewhere lay their lives on the line for the privilege of self-governance. As the nation that created Democracy, we have been shamed by those who have never enjoyed it.

Just sayin'

While in general agreement, the only problem is that we are not the nation that created "Democracy". Ironically, Plato may have something to add.
