    There were some nasty sessions during the Copper Kings Era and during World War I when we had the Sedition Act, but I can’t remember a more virulent, inane legislative session. And I’m getting long in the tooth.

    Did Montana voters really want our newly elected legislators to submit this unholy number of boneheaded bills? Being an impatient lot, the voters wanted the change that the Democrats promised: jobs and economic recovery and fiscal restraint and real health care reform and lots of other unfulfilled mandates. So two years after voting for a lot of Democrats, they voted for the other party.

    Has the other party delivered? Not even close.

    I’ve been out of country for awhile and on my return, I’ve been catching up on the news stories and blog posts. Disgusting. Whacky gun laws, invasive procedures on women, forming militias, restricting access to our waterways, reducing renewable energy sources, rolling back voter rights …
