    History Forgotten

    DOOMED TO REPEAT
    Montana Folks Know
    theatrics for masses
    ZINKE PRETENDING TO BE FROM MONTANA
    -------
    .. Montana is a place where theatrics cover up much in the service of self aggrandizement. It's how our new Interior Secretary has risen through the morass of our political quagmire.
    SANTA BARBARA, MONTANA ??
    .. By gosh and by guile he has flip-flopped on too many issues to have a valid position that can be counted on. Hell's Bells, he's doesn't even live in Montana. He owns no property in our state, [LINK-A.]
    .. Like so many poor states in our nation carpetbaggers  prey upon citizens with their dark money and hidden agendas. It has been this way since the southern states were invaded after the Civil War. It is a fact of Montana politics.
    .. Zinke has the same zeitgeist as the current administration and he fits right in. His funding is 90% from outside of Montana. He has called for the invasion of Mexico. He has hosted hate groups in his congressional office. He has praised Vladimir Putin’s authoritarian rule and Saddam Hussein’s use of draconian measures to control his population, [LINK-B.]
    FOR SALE OR RENT ??
    .. Despite his rhetoric and the insults hurled at our Native American population he really wants to privatize &/or exploit public lands. He will do it on either the large scale or the small scale - what ever the opportunity, [LINK-C.]
    .. Zinke is proud to boast about who he is. He is a perfect Trumptarian in this way. His self agrandizing history is there for all who care to see, [LINK-D.]
    .. He, like most of the current white billionaire administration is a fanboy of Putin, [LINK-E.]

    IRISH SPORT HORSE
    .. Montana residents are generally honest. They presume to give others the benefit of the doubt.
    .. Like good people around the world they make the mistaken assumption that others are like themselves.
    .. They tend to believe that what they see is what they get.
    .. They also allow you to fool them  only once.
    .. Now they, and the rest of the country, are getting a California social climber on a fancy, Irish Sport Horse,  pretending to be from Montana.
    TRY THAT ON THE POTOMAC
    .. What's wrong with a good ol' Montana Quarter Horse? Or a local Paint that you can fish from?
    .. He was born here and split as soon as he could.
    .. We have watched this swell of pretense growing over the last decade or so.
    .. Zinke has noted, rightly so, that Montanans are generally poor. "The Appalachia of the west," how sad.
    .. Many other politicians from out of state have also observed this. The local political parties, (Republican, Democrat, Other,) can't compete in fund raising with dark money.
    .. We need a sign at our border: "Carpetbaggers Welcome." It's happening more and more!
    .. Folks that praise the image fail to understand the substance of the folks in the image. Zinke has flaunted his sexism, racism, and Russian sympathies. His history is clear, [LINK-F, LINK-G.]
    ALL,  SOME,  NONE:   Lead Restrictions
    .. Bless his heart, he pretends to care about the environment and preservation of fishing and hunting resources. That's probably why his first official act was to repeal the banned use of lead ammunition and fishing tackle in national parks and wildlife refuges, [LINK-H.]
    .. Lead shot has been acknowledged to be an environmental hazzard and there are existing federal regulations to prohibit its use for migratory waterfowl. The current battle of lead bullets and lead fishing tackle is still ongoing. Line up with your favorite side, [LINK-I.]
    .. Then there's the concern about our endangered species. What's the history there, [LINK-J?]
    .. There is much more and you can, (if you really care to,) find out about the history of the new Interior Secretary. Here's a start: "Zinke Environmental History."
    .. We can't fault folks that think the stunt of riding a horse to work is a sign of good ol' western values. They have not known this politician or his ways for the past decade or so.
    -----
    BEST MIDGE
    .. Look, the snow is melting, the sun is out, the midges are frolicking, and the waters call.
    .. We'd best get there before they get sold to some California interloper.
