two awards: for cowardice and lack of class

by problembear

i got a few things stuck in my craw lately and i need to share:

i hereby award the crucible of cowardice 

to all those responsible on the part of the city of missoula folding and pulling out their support for the poverello’s  new building location at the old site of the trail’s end bar and casino. might we infer that this is also the trail’s end of this city’s political support for a very needed improvement in how we treat our homeless? after all, this is the second time the city of missoula has pulled their support in the last couple of years. when is the city actually going to get behind the much needed move to a decent place for the poverello to accomplish their mission and provide some hope for the overworked staff and it’s beleaguered clients, 30 % of which are veterans? 

my award for lack of class (and a horrible sense of timing) goes to Montana GOP chairman will deschamps letter touting the fine corporate practices of exxon in today’s missoulian.   (update- be sure to read the comments in this link. absolutely delicious the way the missoulian readers tear will a new one here)

with leaders like this in the grand old party shooting themselves in the foot by making complete asses of themselves, who needs any rebuttal by opponents?

i prefer to let will’s ill chosen words stand all alone and ashamed in the corner where they belong.

    Ill chosen words indeed:

    “I recommend that Exxon not spend one red cent in Missoula County.”

    Well, maybe we should take those “red” cents away from Exxon. Like all of their taxpayer funded tax breaks, and their socialized expenses incurred on our roads and waterways through their destructive industrial activities.

    I like that term “red cents” as it applies to socializing losses and (subsidizing) and privatizing profits. So apropos.

    I understand some on here don’t care for the source but thought you would find Gov Brian’s comments interesting.

    I wanted to add a wildlife update because it seems to be good news.
    According to an Exxon press release wildlife crews were called to a landowners site yesterday where they captured , cleaned and released a garter snake. That’s the only confirmed report of wildlife impacts I’ve seen thus far.
