Sorry, another Steve Daines post

My latest exchange (if you can call me sending his office an email that he'll never in a million years read) with the 'good senator':

"I’ve said it before, but it’s worth repeating – Montanans who live and work on the land every day know how to best manage our state’s resources, not federal bureaucrats in Washington who want to regulate every pond, puddle and ditch in our state." This quote is from your latest mass emailing, regarding the EPA.

Seriously?  You think that, just an example, miners (both the workers and owners, I'm sure the owners fit your definition) should decide how the land should be used? Timber workers (again, the loggers and owners) should decided how to use the National Forests?  Bet they'll just be real concerned with the environment, eh?  Well, bet you'll get more lobby money, huh? 
Again, as I've said many times, many, many Montanans do NOT agree with you or your policies. Do not think you represent our views. 
As I said before, I know the good Senator doesn't even come close to reading any of these that disagree with them, or the staffers who do probably get two sentences in before hitting the 'delete' key, but if you get this far, dear staffer, go look for a more ethical boss. You deserve better, as do the rest of Montana. 
Cheers, 
Mike Mulligan


What the hell is 'violent leftism'???

The Cook Down the Street is a left-hander, and I've had my eye on his antics for 40 years, if that's what he means. You just can't trust those damn left-handed university department chairs as far as you can throw them.

  1. I had never heard of Steve Daines. He sounds like a real piece of work. Oh, sorry. I forgot. He's a Republican. They don't work. They just collect checks.

  2. Even if he ignores you, keep sending him letters. It may keep him up at night wondering if a Commie is hiding under his bed.

  3. Mike, I believe you're perfectly justified in viewing Daines with disdain.

  4. There are 17 Super-Fund sites in Montana. Most of them relate to mining. Some of these sites have so much dissolved minerals in the ground water, that the water itself can be "mined." That makes me feel kind of violent...

    1. Hey Pat. Yep, and one of the worst is the Berkeley Pit, the site of the largest urban superfund site in the US, aka Butte Montana, where I live.

  5. I didn't know who Steve Daines is so I looked him up and found this. Your concerns are valid.
