Thank You Montana Republicans

by Montana Firefighter

Good to know my work is for naught. (Hat tip to bfunk!)

Thanks Representative Sinrud. Thanks Montana Republicans.

I’m sure the communities of Frenchtown, Arlee, Seeley Lake, Rock Creek, Darby, Billings, Plains, Livingston, etc. would love to have you come visit and present your point of view.

As for me, I’ll be supporting the good Governor Brian Schweitzer, who didn’t cover his ears and sing “la la la la la” when he presented his budget last November 2006.

That is, of course, in contrast to Montana Republicans who chose to play partisan politics with the realities of not only Montana wildfires but Montana firefighters – by trashing the good gov’s budget proposal for wildfire funding and then having the nerve to accuse him of not supporting firefighters because he didn’t support individual taxcuts for firefighters.

Lordy Lord.

    Wow. Didn’t you play this same tune last year? Like get a new riff, man.

  2. I bet you say that to Eric Clapton when he launches into “Layla”, too.

    The acoustic one wasn’t much.

    According to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, today, the House added $10 million to the DNRC budget to fight wildfires. The Senate removed the money and gave it to DOR and the State Historical Society.

    “Tho all indications pointed to an intense fire season, even in January, the Senate decdided that historical spending and an increase of 35% plus in tax collection costs were higher priorities than fighting wildfire. That budget eventually cleared both houses of the Legislature and the governor’s scrutiny” Bozeman daily Chronicle, page A4 9/2/2007

    Seems that, as usual with this particular legislative year, the blame can be spread to all concerned. How lucky we are that we get a third helping of the 2007 partisan vituperation.
