YES!, because if we need an official religion for Montana, or a religious official for governor, it should be someone like Mr. GeeyanFARTey! Because NOTHING says Montana values like mr. giantfarte’s wacky religeeous beliefs! How ’bout them apples?! Grab yourself a nice ripe lil’ green apple and fill your quiver! The riper the better! It’s giantfarte’s economic development plan! NUHTIN’ says godly father like raisin’ lil’ green apples and give’em away to your buddies! Fathers, DO YOUR DUTY! Get’em ripe, and get’em gone! We need the values voters! http://www.rawstory.com/2016/02/christian-conservatives-push-child-marriage-with-creepy-meme-comparing-girls-to-apples/ Jesus, just Jesus! And they’re a’comin’ to Montana in droves! THAT… Read more »

Oh wait. I forgot. Mr. geeyanFARTey doesn’t BELIEVE in science! Yup. THAT’S the dude we want for governor! Much easier to be a bigoted a**hooole if your religeeon justifies it!

GeeyanFARTey supporters, fillin’ their quivers with apples just as fast as they can! WE NEED JOBS FOR THESE PEOPLE!, so’s the lil’ apples can stay here in Montana! Make’em little loggers and miners!…………oh, and apples of course. LOTS of apples!

Sen. Uncle Fester Fiedler foaming at the mouth for the Big Kockhs! Spittin’ out them Big Kockh talkin’ points like noboby’s bidness! Yesirree. I simply call’em big kockhs. Spit them Big Kockhs out as fast as you can, sen. fester fielder! It’s what you do best!

Hi, I’m sen. uncle fester fielder, new head of the Kockh arm behind the attempt to steal your public lands! Yes, you might say that I’m headin’ up the behind of the big Kockhs, and I’ve got my head firmly up the behind of this movement. And when the big movement finally comes from the bowels of this country, well, I’ll be there with you, from the outer reaches of farms, ranches, and houses everywhere! From outer farms, from out ranches, and from outer houses!…..or outhouses!

I’m sen. uncle fester fielder and I approved this message!

This is really quite good. What sen. uncle fester fielder apparently doesn’t understand is that we, too, TREASURE our public lands! Why? For what they are! We don’t all want to live in a Walmart parking lot, or inside the confines of a major metropolitan area, or in a space capsule. Apparently sen. fester fielder does! BTW, fester, the Malhuer refuge was NOT vacant! It was a freakin’ vacation break, you dipsh&t! Where did this fester fiddler woman grow up? Anyone know? What are HER values regarding the land? Pleasing Kockh is NOT a value we Montanans share with her,… Read more »

Hi Larry, Pete here. You really need to get your own blog. It’s not that hard. WordPress or Blogger can get you started. You have good links and strong opinions but when you post nine comments in a row here, you stifle comments from others. This is Don’s site and it’s his final call, but I’ll advance blocking you if you can’t rein in your comments to one-or-two a post. (That’s unless you’re in a meaningful debate with another commenter, and I don’t mean just some pissing match with a right-winger. There’s plenty of that going on already and it’s… Read more »

I don’t accept your premise. Less comments means MORE comments, if I understand you correctly? Pete, if that were actually the case, cgirl site would be LOADED with comments. But it’s not. And I don’t even post there. Banned! Cgirl is claimed to be the most influential site in Motnana, but how can that be with a paucity of comments? Explain that to me. Heck, even Limp Lizzard gets a huge number of comments, but they’re mainly the pissing matches that you refer to. But at least they’re comments. Bottom line? There is nothing preventing people from commenting here. They… Read more »

Pete Talbot

I didn’t ask you to leave, I asked you to try and limit your comments to a couple for each post. Look above. Nine in a row from you and absolutely no other comments from anyone else. Why do you suppose that is? It’s called give-and-take. But you dominate the conversation so thoroughly that no one else wants to participate. You mention “a paucity of comments” at Cowgirl’s site. We must be looking at two different sites, Larry. She seems to get more comments than any other Montana site I can think of. More than here, anyway, and you know… Read more »

Am I banned again? Well, put one in the WIN column for sWeed, Tim Randval, and Fester Fielder! The righties are hoisting a toast to you as we speak! They simply LUV we lefties self-censor. And yes, this IS a discussion.

Pete Talbot

Obviously, you are not banned. I was making a suggestion so that others might feel like they could also comment here. We’ll see if you take that suggestion.

Now, pete, give it a rest. Go have yourself a coupl’e Mizoo micro brews and re-think what you’re sayin’. For I rest my case! Blog comments ARE important, VERY important. Let them happen! Read the Oregon live comments. It kept the hopes alive of those folks over in Burns. Why would YOU want to stop that kind of discussion? I simply don’t get it. Do you???

Oh boy! Sen. Fester Fielder’s gonna have LOTS of money to steal public lands now! Her followers are as nutty as SHE is!

rural isolation + inbreeding = bat shit!

OH NO! My sources in Texas are telling me that the “resort” where Fat Toni demised himself is used to catering to all a fella’s needs……..ALL his needs! They said that the reason that no autopsy, NO autopsy, could be performed on Fat Toni was because he had enuff Viagra in his system to FLOAT THE TITANIC! TONI DIED IN THE SADDLE! And really, what a way to go! That’s how I would prefer to go! In bed, pillow on head, and one last stand. TONI’S LAST STAND was in the saddle! Now, if you can think of a better… Read more »

Nazzzies are a very funny bunch. And for you young folks, a leetle fun with nazzzi history!

Larry, OK, we saw it first here on your views on Intelligent Discontent! Don and Pete, any way ID could stay on course with critical news stories, and for a few weeks, set up Larry to have a blog within this blog. Where his written voice and experience could be heard and recorded and appreciated, in due time. Larry, listen to your own words. If comments at Montana Cowgirl seem limited, maybe some blog followers would want to visit ID! And find ready navigation to items of THEIR interest, indpendent of your field and stream of thought. Especially during Election… Read more »

Wow! Well OK then, the fight is on, and the battle lines are being drawn! We’re ALL Native Americans now! The parallels and similarities are amazing! The dirty bassturds want to steal OUR land! Nazzzi a**hoools! NOTHING held in common for the common good! It’s a full frontal Kockh assault on our country! Can they make it any clearer? IT’S A GOOD DAY TO DIE!, or at least to start fighting back. In Indian society, every warrior had to decide for himself whether or not he wanted to fight. There was no draft of any kind so to speak.

EeeeeYUP! What he said. Very good article on the Bunghole Mlisha, and ms. Uncle Fester Fielder’s “movement”. Hint. It’s a BOWEL movement!

Nuthin’ makes a big kockh go limp as fast as REAL Americans kickin’ nazzzi ass! btw, I STILL want to get them kockh brothers on a lie detector. I want to know just WHAT they knew bee FORE hand about the Kennedy assassination, since their worthless POS daddy was IN on it! Time to call out these traitorous kocks for what they are, TRAITORS! They were IN on the Kennedy coup, and history should know that! Now, if they don’t agree to my… Read more »

Where in the freakin’ HELL is she from? clair biazz. What’s next, paddy qutitter wms??? Jeusus, just Jesus! Silly, silly cowturd. She managed to turn a great site into SH*T!, with a lack of courage.

Lack of courage? She has the balls to have a site. You only have the cowardice to use the platform of others.

What benefit do you feel you have for Montana?

OUCH! THAT hurt. Almost. No, really. It did. It almost hurt. Well, not quite almost, but it WAS a good attempt!………..at something! Kinda like T-ball, you get an A for effort at a swing and a miss! Yeah, that’s it. I was a good swing! No, seriously, greggy, you just GOTTA inform me of ms. byizz’s bonyfeeds! I think that SHE herself would tell you that she’s kinda been outta the loop on activism over the last thirty or so years. No, seriously, ASK HER! For I don’t recall anything that’s she’s done! Now me? No, I refuse to blow… Read more »

$200 to the medical marijuana clinic $300 to the liquor store $600 to the landlord $400 to the grocery store. That’s about the value I think you have for the state, myself. It’s the value a lot of old timers have, those bringing in those social security checks. I bet most spending would deviate from yours, but I think that list I put up is about accurate. What would happen if you stopped commenting on this site? Would people miss you? That’s a hard question to ask ourselves – would we be missed? I’ve been thinking about it, and you… Read more »

Well, actually, greg, I have a very discernible history, unlike you! Look, next time you see our ex-guv, Brian Schweitzer, ask him who his favorite blog commenter was. No, seriously, ask him. For he LOVED my stuff. Name’s Larry Kralj, Environmental Rangers. Do it. My record is what it is. That’s all. And I stand by it. Oh, and my pseudonym was Redneck Hippie, among others. And I got kicked off EVERY site in Montana at one time or another except this one, all for telling hard truths that no one wanted to hear, in colorful, entertaining language. The GF… Read more »

Well, when you’re in Helena, ask Jim Jensen of MEIC about the Rangers. No, seriously, do that. And about the Arena article, and about Bonnie Raitt, and about the MONEY her concerts brought into MEIC for the heap leach gold mine fights and the Blackfoot. Or maybe Bonnie Gestring. Then go up to Ft. Belknap and ask the native people about the Rangers in the fight against Zortman/Landusky. Oh, and ask the bad guys from the mining industry like John Fitzpatrick or Bill Snoddy if they know me. Oh, and while you’re in Helena ask Beverly Fox why she got… Read more »

I know, it sucks. I’m about the exact same way – putting $1,500 a month into the local economy. Besides that…what value do I have? The biggest reason our middle-aged men in Montana are giving before they kill themselves is that they feel like a burden. If the only benefit you have is putting $1,500 a month into the local economy, is that good enough? And if it’s not, who are you dragging down? That’s what people all over the state are thinking. We have a big suicide problem here at the moment, and that means a lot more are… Read more »

You’re too fatalistic, Greg. I’m from a different generation. We just grab a nut and suck it up! You see, I LOVE hard, physical, dirty, dangerous work! That’s why I cut trees as a summer job for some twenty-five years or so. Hell, I still try to do it, but my body’s giving out now. But no, you’re wrong. I have NEVER asked for sympathy of any kind. Nor a handout from the gummint. THAT’S why the tea party hates me! I always tell’em that I’ll give up MY gummint money if they give up theirs! For you see, I’M… Read more »

Where do the Koch heads get their strength? I’d try to take that strength away from them. How can that be done…and what makes two piddly-dinks like us out here in the boondocks think that we can come up with something them bigwigs on K and L street can’t? Sometimes I think we forget one of the most important stories ever written, and that’s the Emperor Has No Clothes. Shaming is such a powerful tool to use against those that take themselves seriously. If you can get everyone to laugh at someone, they’re done. So I like that story. Will… Read more »

Jeez, we were treated again today in the GF Spitoon to an editorial by sen. uncle fester fielder. What’s up with that? Do we NOW have to suffer endless bullshit arguments from this moronic woman? How many of her Bundy apologies must we endure? How many, dickard ecke? Is THAT how you increase your circulation, by facilitating endless bullshit and treasonous arguments with no rebuttal? NOT to mention the hate groups associated with ms. uncle fester fiedler! What’s next? John trochman to lecture us on citizenship? or pasturd bulbdim to explain his white homeland theories of Montana?
