if given the choice between freedom and making things perfect, i would have to choose freedom. i just don’t think we need to throw out common sense in order to preserve freedom. we should be able to agree that you don’t go around shooting people because you disagree with what they do for a vocation no matter how vehemently you disagree with legal abortions. 

we should also agree that hate speech in this country is getting out of hand when weak-minded old men shoot down a young father for the crime of being a security guard in a museum….

it would be well to remember that domestic violence has done more to damage and alter the course of american history than any war or outside terrorist act….the assassination of lincoln by a slavery supporting actor…the assassination of JFK….and the slaying of Martin Luther King by an unapologetic racist….

preserve freedom at all costs but let’s use some common sense before this  hysteria gets any more out of hand than it already has.   bad enough that we burn our young soldier’s lives and endless resources ostensibly “protecting” iraq and afghanistan while our country’s security is at stake. we need to make sure our domestic terrorist surveillance is stepped up and given at least as much priority as off shore terrorism. or better yet, let’s bring them home and give these seasoned soldiers a new job- start protecting our own citizens for a change

Please consider this an open thread

What do you think is going to happen when the Army Corp of Engineers tries this crap here in Missoula??

Ten toxic things you should never discuss on the internet

I think we’ve only discussed 4 of ’em here…

A majority of conservatives think that Colbert is pretending to be joking on his evening show “The Colbert Report”

Still? Even after that famous roast of George W. Bush? Oy vey!

Two action items, folks: Button Valley Bugle reports that FWP is considering allowing the proposed Tongue River Railroad run right through the Miles City hatchery. This railroad is needed to open up the Otter Creek tracts, which the state acquired in some boondoggle scheme to stop gold mining that was never going to happen on the edge of Yellowstone National Park.

The Tongue River, on the other hand, is being called The National Sacrifice Area by the Editor, and sadly they’re quite right. Coal bed methane activities are polluting the precious water resource of the Tongue and salinating wells across the land, and now the Otter Creek tract proposal. A number of environmental affronts would occur should the State Land Board decide to open these tracts to leasing for coal mining – the railroad and not only its large environmental footprint on the landscape and the spreading of pollution it will leave across landscape, but its trampling of private property rights that the eminent domain activities of the state will seek along the way. Clean Coal is a myth, something we’ve written about a number of times…and in case you had any doubts, check out the latest fallacy concerning coal

Well, I’ve tuckered myself out. Looks gorgeous out. I’m hitting the sunshine. What say you?
