The Feds start a fire, the media brings Gasoline.

August 9, 2015

The United States Federal Government is not an unstoppable force to be feared and obeyed without question. Various Federal agencies appear to act with unimpeded authority, because too few private citizens choose to resist. Those that do are commonly vilified in the media. The current situation at the White Hope Mine near Lincoln is already […]

Wasted Resources

August 4, 2015

Today like many days during the summer I sat outside and looked at the smoke from a forest fire. It’s not too thick right now here in Helena, but it’s there. I thought I’d write about this topic because I recently had an opportunity to expand my perspective of the current situation. Back in June […]

Montana Medicaid Expansion (HELP) Act

July 29, 2015

As I’m sure most Montanans know, the Health and Economic Livelihood Partnership (HELP) Act was signed into law by Governor Steve Bullock on April 29, 2015. However, this is far from the end of the fight over Medicaid Expansion here in Montana. This law contains certain provisions that conflict with Federal guidelines. The request for […]

Primary Concern

Primary Concern

From my perspective the Republican Primary in Montana was pretty brutal this year. Steve Daines won the nomination for U.S. Senate with an encouraging 83.15% of Republican votes. On the other hand, the very close 3 way split between Ryan Zinke 33.09%, Corey Stapleton 29.26%, and Matt Rosendale 28.81%, for our sole seat in the […]

Medicaid or Financial Independence

Medicaid or Financial Independence

Saving money has long been recognized as one of the most practical ways for individuals to improve the quality of their lives. Except of course for those who have some sort of trust fund, or other kind of large amount of money that is just given to them, which most people don’t, folks who want […]

Making a living, and having a life.

Making a living, and having a life.

I mentioned in a previous article that my father worked very hard when I was a kid.  He worked a lot of overtime, and before ASARCO closed down we had a very comfortable life.  Things got pretty tight after, but we still had what we needed. More importantly, I can’t remember my father having even […]

A Christmas Miracle.

December 21, 2013
A Christmas Miracle.

This is the 8th December I’ve been in business for myself.  Every year I expect financial shortfall.  Somebody always shorts me, or doesn’t pay anything at all. The first week of this November I reduced the monthly rental charge on all of my units, to try and make things easier.  Folks are having a hard […]

Democracy, Constitution, Western achievement.

I don’t claim to be an expert of any kind, but I am somewhat knowledgeable.  This article will be based on facts that I have floating around in my head, but more importantly it will convey the opinion I derive from these facts. I think it’s fair to say that the majority of Americans probably […]

Republican Change from within.

November 9, 2013
Republican Change from within.

Before the 2012 election I had never heard of a county central committee.  I certainly didn’t know that every county has one, they usually meet once a month on a regular schedule, and that these meetings are open to the public. Shortly after the election, one of the candidates I campaigned for, told me about […]

I remember what the middle class use to be.

I remember what the middle class use to be.

I have visited every state in the Western region except Hawaii and Colorado, and I’ve visited 2 more in the Midwest. I have been to the Space Needle in Seattle, and the San Diego Zoo in California.  I’ve been to Disney Land 7 times, and I’ve been to Universal Studios Hollywood. I have toured Yellowstone […]
