As to the CSKT agreement and Taylor’s concern there is precedent from Washington state concerning privately owned tidelands and shellfish harvesting. http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1314&dat=19990406&id=xGJWAAAAIBAJ&sjid=FfIDAAAAIBAJ&pg=6745,3693748

When it comes to the Ides of March, I can’t think of any more important issue than education. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2015/03/02/u-s-millennials-post-abysmal-scores-in-tech-skills-test-lag-behind-foreign-peers/ Not just Caesar has died marking this day.

That settlement was between commercial harvesters and the Tribes. It did not address entering upon private land without permission of the landowner. I believe that was the thrust of Taylor’s warning about the CSKT agreement.

Spend a half hour in front of any Walmart and watch the fat, lardassed, Jeezus luvin’, patriotic inbreds who pass through those doors, and you will begin to understand what he’s talking about. The new ideal American needs BOTH those doors to get their fat asses through! And they’re poopin’em out like pancakes! Kids that is. Sad, so sad. It didn’t have to be this way. Jeezus, guns, and chinnese SH*T at Walmart! What more do you need???

I have always maintained that anyone who believes the earth is four thousand years old is an idiot, and I still do. Need proof? Well, listen to Pee Wee Daines’ first “major” speech as a senator. What a joke. He treats the audience to his grandma story fercrhrissakes! Really? The grandma story again? WTFaaaaa?? THAT’S why we sent you to D.C., Pee Wee? To regale your fellow senators with your grandma stories??? What a buffoon! Oh and yes, now that Pee Wee’s a senator, he’s STILL railing against the D.C. crowd! Even though he ARE one! Idiot!
