"Like so many Montanans..."

I've tried all sorts of 'alternative politics' here in my adopted state. None seem to make a difference, I give them time, year or three, then try another. Recently, the states senator Steve Daines, a Republican,  sent me an email. I thought wtf....let's try joining them, and eating away from the inside, like a parasitic worm.

So, in hopes of going down that path, I replied to the email thusly....

Good of you to contact me. Thanks.

I believe too that government represses us, and suppress our natural need and wants. Like Gen. Ripper, I bemoan our loss, over the decades, of our precious bodily fluids.

I want to create here in Montana a civilization we can all relate to. Obviously it would be white, of middle class sensibility, and it goes without saying it'd be White/Conservative/Evangelical/Christian, we would of course conform to the current course of events, in which the delegation to our fair separatist area would be primarily Hispanic, that's not important though.

So, if you know any good fund sources like me, obvious intruders, dedicated to your demise, do let me know.


Oddly, I've sent more than a few emails to this office, with nonce a reply.....fancy that.

Dear Mike,
Like many Montanans, I believe that the bureaucracy of the federal government creates too much red tape. Government regulations shouldn't negatively impact Montana's small businesses and the hardworking men and women who own them.
Too often, the federal government keeps the public in the dark when issuing regulations that have the potential to create billions of dollars in adverse economic impact for the country. We need more transparency and accountability in the regulatory process and this begins with knowing what the impacts of new regulations will be.
That's why today I introduced legislation to increase transparency in regulatory rules in a bill called the Regulatory Impact Scale on the Economy Small Business Act of 2015 (RISE Act).
Montanans should be confident that their elected officials are looking out for them and keeping the federal government open and honest. The RISE Act will give Congress the tools needed to monitor the regulatory process and force the federal government to be accountable to the public on regulations that negatively affect businesses and the economy.
As always, I encourage you to contact my office to express your concerns or opinions on policy issues important to you. It is my number one priority in Congress to represent the values and interests of the people of Montana, and your input is very helpful as I do. I also invite you to visit my website, www.daines.senate.gov, so we can stay in close touch.

Warmest Regards,


  1. Why you subservive, you. Keep up the good work.

    1. Must have been drinkin' when I wrote this. I meant "subversive".

  2. But he looks like such an earnest and forthright young man, like our recently declared for the GOP presidential nod, John Kasich. Your fellow seems to have invented his acronym before he named his legislation.

  3. I think I know why you didn't get any response but George Carlin said it better than I could:

    “Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea you have freedom of choice. You don't. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land, they own and control the corporations that've long since bought and paid for, the senate, the congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pocket, and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all of the news and the information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else. But I'll tell you what they don't want. They don't want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don't want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They're not interested in that. That doesn't help them.”

  4. After that sincere thoughtful letter you sent all he could do is send you the latest form letter? It's okay, though, as he wants to stay in close touch.

  5. After that sidewinder I have to wonder if he is also dedicated to his own demise?

    And a good thing too.


  6. Thank you all for your gracious comments.
    'Twas a futile exercise of course, didn't expect anything else. Seemed mildly entertaining, and something they would of course ignore.
    Daines is a bozo.....it seems odd to me that Montana could churn out a Gov. Like Schweitzer, a Senator like Mike Mansfield, and then Daines.
    I'm heading next week to visit for a bit in LA, and then later in the fall a rather good trip planned. Details to follow.

    1. Y'know, if this is what passes for 'subversive', then we are well and truly screwed. Should be a lot more than this pap.

  8. Nice letter... Politics get more and more tiring which is bad, because only the morons (perhaps I should say, extremists) remain interested...
