Thursday Numbers

It’s Thursday – and that means your weekly dose of knowledge awaits!

In case you are a first-time visitor, “Thursday Numbers” is the weekly column where I take a look at the numbers that are in the news (in descending order) and provide commentary (sometimes spiked with sarcasm) just to make you smile, shake your head, or make you send me nasty e-mails or Tweets.

This week I write about Samsung & Blackberry, Montana infrastructure, Obamacare, Starbucks, Mitt Romney, Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, Judge Kenneth Neill, unemployment, Denver Broncos & John Fox, Super Bowl, Forrest Gump, Ann Curry, must-follow Twitter accounts, job approval, Paul “Bear” Bryant, Nick Saban, Urban Meyer, and the most important problem facing the country!

Montana Republicans: Paranoia

In case you missed the political news over the weekend, on Saturday the Montana Republican State Central Committee voted to join a lawsuit that would prevent voters who are not registered Republicans from voting in a Republican primary.

The vote was 83 for joining the lawsuit and 43 against joining the lawsuit.

According to the Associated Press (AP), the lawsuit “asks a federal judge to strike down as unconstitutional Montana laws allowing any registered voter to participate in any party primary.”

The AP also reported, “Many Republicans said at the meeting closed primaries are needed because people not in their party have been voting in their primaries and influencing election outcomes for years.”

Those 83 people who voted to join the lawsuit are paranoid. They remind me of the new DirecTV commercial with the “Overly Paranoid Rob Lowe.” See it HERE.
