Montana Blog Roundup 09 October 2011

I’ve been enjoying a new Montana blog, blogroundup109Montana’s Bully Pulpit, a collaborative blog dedicated to preserving the heritage of conservation in Montana and the United States. In particular, I enjoyed their take on Representative Kris Hansen’s entirely illogical editorial about the need for spear hunting in Montana. Definitely a blog to keep an eye on for hunting, fishing, and conservation issues.

4and20 blackbirds has the most information on the spread of the Occupy Wall Street movement in Montana. For more information about the movement in Missoula and Helena, follow the links.

Enjoy out of state billionaires manipulating our political system? Then you’ll love Dennis “Cash Poor” Rehberg taking his marching orders from the Koch Brothers.

While the local media seems unwilling to cover the absurdity that is Denny Rehberg’s effort to appropriate, you can learn all about his efforts to cut HIV/AIDS prevention efforts and pursue fraudulent lunchroom taco eating.

The Electric City Weblog and MT Cowgirl discussed the the costs of a power-hungry mayor and overzealous city attorney cracking down on someone with the temerity to speak out against a city policy. It’s about $500,000.

On the media side, Politics in the ‘Root offeed an in-depth look at the continuing budget tensions in Ravalli County and the Missoulian Cops and Courts blog discussed its stories plagiarized by the content mill Examiner.com.

  • Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  • Hmm it looks like your website ate my very first comment (it was very long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your weblog. I as nicely am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m nonetheless new towards the whole thing. Do you might have any ideas and hints for rookie blog writers? I’d truly appreciate it.

  • My partner and I stumbled over here by a different page and thought I may as well check things out. I like what I see so now i’m following you. Look forward to exploring your web page repeatedly.
