Quote for the day…
Ironing boards are surfboards that gave up their dreams and got a boring job. Don’t be an ironing board. -Unknown
Today’s independent commentary deals with these issues:
- The Western Word Poll
- Matt Rosendale
- Gaetz/Greene & Trump/O’Reilly
- Reading Assignments
- One More Thing
THE WESTERN WORD POLL:
The Associated Press (AP) announced last week that a third Democrat had announced a run for Montana’s new U.S. House seat. Those Democrats running include Monica Tranel, Laurie Bishop, and Cora Neumann.
Click on the names (above) to visit their websites. I’m sure there will be more candidates in the future.
This week’s poll question asks, “Who is your favorite Democratic U.S. House candidate so far?”
Results will be posted later this week.
U.S. Representative Matt Rosendale (R-MT/AL) is very far to the right in my book and several of his votes in the U.S. House are head-scratchers. I did not vote for him, and I hope when the lines are drawn for the new districts, he is not in my area.
Nonetheless, Rosendale publishes a very good newsletter to let his constituents learn about his travels and the issues that he is working on. Congrats to his staff for their work on it.
You can see the latest newsletter by clicking HERE. I subscribe to it not because I am a supporter, but because I am interested in the issues affecting Montana. Every Montanan should subscribe. Sure, it has some propaganda, but that is normal these days.
Other elected officials and those wishing to represent Montana should take notice of Rosendale’s newsletter.
GAETZ/GREENE & TRUMP/O’REILLY:
The Hill is reporting that Republican Reps. Matt Gaetz (Fla.) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.) held a protest on Saturday after a third California venue canceled plans to host one of their “America First” rallies.
Vanity Fair is reporting that it “Looks like no one wants to see the Donald Trump-Bill O’Reilly arena tour.” Ouch.
Those two articles made me smile.
Here are some articles that I think you will find interesting…
ONE MORE THING:
Does anyone know the date and time in August for Trump’s inauguration?
