The Traditional Woman

by lizard


I can’t help myself. After reading Rob Natelson’s masculine appreciation of the Tea Queen, Michele Bachman, I was overwhelmingly compelled to break my once-a-week blog diet.

Like Pogie, I was immediately struck by this line in Mr. Natelson’s BIG PIC/small content post:

On the practical level in the TV age: Bachmann easily pulls off the challenging feat of looking simultaneously traditionally-feminine and competent.

the term traditionally-feminine is a quagmire. plugged in to Google images, that pic is the first image offered. Add to that Natelson implying being traditionally-feminine excludes being competent, well, that’s just icing on the cake cooked by a nice stupid submissive house wife, right? Continue Reading »

Oh boy…what? A new union? Those crazy liberals!

Yeah…no.

Dairgold Creamery in Bozeman is laying off 2/3 of its workforce – 35 to 40 people. It’s cheaper to send raw milk to Salt Lake City (which is, incidentally, hiring) for pasteurization and will save Dairgold trucking miles and costs.

My heart goes out to those workers and their families. Those were undoubtedly good stable jobs. Then there’s the tax base.

Well – I’m in for co-opting it. A dairy co-op. Buy the thing, Montana – just like the local co-op grocery store. Don’t let Dairgold dismantle the thing like Smurfit intended…or like Stimson who is letting its whole facility cave in and rot on stilts (as they are doing with dozens of historic homes in Bonner).

Montana needs to continue value-adding to its raw dairy products. Montana-made milk. Yogurt. Ice Cream. While I’m more of a soy-milk fan, I don’t see that about to break any trend here in Montana….so milk is a pretty stable commodity, I’d say.

It all starts with an idea. Sitting around and saying “oh well,” doesn’t work.
