fanning the flames

by problembear

one billings gazette commenter chimes in with this: “….This leaves an incredibly bitter taste in my mouth that will stick with me through the next election.”


uh oh, it looks like this denny rehberg smolder might just be a full blown 4 alarm fire by this november from the tone of these comments….

BE SURE AND CLICK THE LINK TO THE ABOVE ARTICLE AND READ THE COMMENTS. denny is getting blackened cajun style by billings readers!

i especially liked this one….(Flare-ups happen and can happen several days after fires are thought to be fully contained. I find this lawsuit offensive as a wildland fire fighter b/c there was no loss of dwelling and no one was hurt. so some little out-structure was burned, that happens. In all honesty, residents are responsible for taking precautions that prevent the threat of a wildland fire destroying their property, such as clearing away fuels w/in a hundred yards in all direction from ones house. like I said, I’m upset there’s a suit at all b/c there was no real damage done. Trees and sage can be replanted; burned ground is actually quite fertile for a while.”)

and this comment from the above linked article is pregnant with meaning….

(The nice thing about voting for representatives is the two year term.)

more comments too delicious to pass up….

How does a city go about “un-annexing” a parcel? Unannex Rehberg Ranch and let the homeowners sue Denny until he figures out how to PAY for fire protection. It is interesting that Cliff Edwards is representing Rehberg…keep that in mind the next time Edwards Jet Center wants a special favor from the city.

more excerpts from article in above link

At least one council member jumped into the fray as well.

“Sounds to me like another lawyer looking for a payday,” Councilman Rich McFadden e-mailed other council members on Saturday. “Maybe we need a rule to require Rehberg Ranch LLC to keep the brush cut down.”

and according to this city official….

“I think that the Fire Department did a good job of defending the property,” said Billings City Administrator Tina Volek.

thanks to this blog for the link. (dave doesn’t sound too pleased either….)

  1. pb, this is a great post.

    Why IS Edwards representing Rehberg?? Guess the money was too good to pass up, though it kind of hampers his future prospects.

  2. Let’s face it, no matter how much you complain, these politicians do not really care. All they care about is getting reelected. When Adolph Hitler began to squeeze Germany with his grip of control, all the artist-types fled the country. Besides traditional artists, many great thinkers, top business leaders, scientists, and educators fled as well (including Albert Einstein, who fled to America in 1932). With the new wave of socialism, and the general downfall of American tradition, I think you will see more people fleeing from America.
