Stutz hits Youtube

Today Rob Stutuz released a “biographical” YouTube video.  Considering the budget Stutz is working with, I have to say I was fairly impressed.  The video is four minutes and thirty seconds long.  Follow the link below to have a gander:

Rob Stutz for Congress – Biography

This adds one more candidate to the list of Dems on YouTube.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.

  • At 3.52 in the Tube Rob is shown shaking the hand of a protester with a cleanairsaveslives dotcom sign.

    Does that mean that Rob supports that organization and if successful in it's petition drive does Rob know the economic effects of increased legislation/regulation on eastern Montana?

        • HEY, Ingrid, where do YOU live that you don't have to breate toxic crap? Never lived in Lockwood, didja? Look, NO ONE wants to breathe toxic crap on purpose, not even for economic development. ONLY your retarded Pubbie pals thinks it's a great idea. That's all. And yeah, I think my proposal IS classy. Makes perfect sense in Pubbie world!

          • Scary I've raised cattle, chickens, horses on two ranches less than three miles east of the Exxon and Conoco refineries. I've raised stock and shot and eaten over 30 deer that have grazed the grasses in their plume. I've raised boys who are on athletic scholarships in MT College and University Systems.

            My parents have lived here since the early 50's back when there was little or no regulation. Guess what? They're still healthy and in their eighties.

            • Well THAT explains your retardation, dude! Look, in the summer, when there was no wind, and the refineries would kick it up at night, the air that floated north of the river was UNBREATHEABLE! I defy anyone to breathe that air! I'm callin' bullshit on you, dude. Go up to Janie St. where my inlaws lived and ask the folks there what the air was like. I'm not sayin' it was nasty. It was UNBREATHEABLE! You simply could not breathe it! And it was some of the worst air in the country! And then, throw in the Laurel refinery! What a mix. What a mix. And THIS is the "progress" you Pubbies want to share with ALL Montana? Too funny. BTW, all that country you lived in either burned up threw global warming or was killed by the pine beetle, wasn't it? I have been in that country for over twenty years. It was quite pretty at one time with all the pines. But I understand that they are all gone. I used to take that back road to Hardin sometimes just for the drive when I was teaching out there. You must'a lived in that Emerald Hills area. Nice country but no water.

              • Dry Creek Ranch was one ranch from the top of the pass leading down to Pryor Creek.

                The timbered hills I live in run to the north of the pass, borders the old Crow Res. line to the east.

                Been here since '75. Have yet to be on O2.

                • Yes, I know that country. But that STILL has nothing to do with the ambient air around the Lockwood refineries. The air concentrated in the valley was probably MUCH worse that the air that was disipated by the time it reached you. Also, probably blew more toward the east than your location. But HEY, don't take my word for it. The air is monitored in the area. The EPA has records.

                • Just ran across this Scary.

                  Looks like all you non-Yellowstone county boys should clean up their own air.

                  HELENA, Mont. [Embargoed until 3 a.m. MT, April 27, 2011 – Air quality scores for Montana communities show that the Clean Air Act is working to improve the air we breathe, but continued monitoring and improvement are needed, experts say. This is especially of concern now that the Clean Air Act is under attack by some members of Congress.

                  The American Lung Association released its annual State of the Air report today, ranking cities and counties throughout the nation by the levels air pollution they experience.

                  In a list of the 230 most-polluted cities for short-term particle pollution, Missoula is 59th and Great Falls 87th.

                  Billings, meanwhile, was ranked 14th among the cleanest cities for annual particle pollution and Yellowstone County was among the cleanest counties for short-term particle pollution. Flathead County made the list of cleanest counties for ozone pollution.

                  The report also uses letter grades to record changes in particle pollution levels. According to these:

                  • Gallatin County improved from a D to a C.
                  • Lincoln County improved from a D to a B.
                  • Missoula County improved from an F to a D.

                • Ingrid, that's really nice country where you live. I spent twenty years running through all the country around there. It was wonderful way back when. I would do fifty milers and hardly never touch the pavement. Used to start out on Dopey Reeburp's ranch way out west of town, climb up on the rims, and run the rims all the way to Black Otter Trail, then cross the RR bridge out and run out to the Indian Caves, then out to the high water mark in the S. Hills, and then work my way back into town. Back in the old days, Billings had an amazing network of deer trails a guy could run. There were no houses anywhere back then. Used to run the old Moon Valley Rd. and all the couless north of town when there were essentially no houses. Billings ain't what it used to be. Too built up now. You're lucky to live where you do.

                • We're on the home place now. The first fire took out thousands of Ponderosas on our eastern border.

                  The 2nd fire took out the western pastures and trees to the north.

                  The only good things about it was the buildings/stock were saved (in the middle) and the county refunded the 500 acres of timberland property taxes.

                  Tons of history were we live. The Crows would camp atop the rims next to their border and sneak back and forth into Billings. During Prohibition the draw south of us held a still nestled in the cottonwoods supplied by a spring. South of that was the old freight wagon road that hauled goods to Hardin.

                • Sorrry to hear that. I loved that country. I loved the pines. I'm kinda like ol' Chief Plenty Coup. He used to say that if the country had pines, sage, and junipers, it was good country. (or some such) We used to go on picnics out there at Pryor by his log home long before it was turned into a park. The road out there at the time looked more like a bombed out road in Iraq than a road in the U.S. Guess that's why no one went out there.

                • “The Crow Country is a good country. The Great Spirit has put it exactly in the right place; while you are in it you fare well; whenever you go out of it, whichever way you travel, you will fare worse."

                  I've always believed this.

  • Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
