In today’s column, I take a quick look at these people/issues:
- Great Falls Homeless Issue
- SCOTUS Opinions
- Fake News
- The Western Word Poll
GREAT FALLS HOMELESS ISSUE:
Yesterday I wrote about the upcoming city’s planning board/zoning commission meeting regarding the First United Methodist Church’s application for a conditional use permit (CUP) to use the property as an emergency shelter.
I wrote, “I think we all know how this will turn out.”
I guess I was correct.
The Electric is reporting that city “Staff is recommending denial of the CUP request.”
Then the staff gives a wordy bullshit excuse for denial. I imagine the board/commission will agree with their recommendation.
The meeting to decide on this request will be held (Today) Tuesday, June 14, at 3:00 pm in the commission chambers at the civic center. More information about the meeting and how you can give comments can be found HERE.
I provided comments, but if I had learned of the staff recommending denial, I probably would not have wasted my time.
We have the MAGA jerks and a mini-Trump complaining about high prices and inflation, and it appears they won’t acknowledge that there’s an emergency in their own community with the homeless population. The church is trying to help, and the city is trying to stop them.
Great Falls is quickly turning into a place that nobody wants to live or even visit. Great Falls seems to have lost the desire to help people.
Read the report from The Electric HERE.
In case you missed it, the U.S. Supreme Court issued several opinions on Monday. More opinions will be released on Wednesday.
According to SCOTUSblog, the court issued opinions in the following cases: Denezpi v. United States, Garland v. Aleman Gonzalez, Johnson v. Arteaga-Martinez, Kemp v. United States, and ZF Automotive US v. Luxshare.
Check out the opinions HERE.
I have some MAGA friends and family who are dumbasses.
The latest dumbassery is THIS PHOTO that they claim shows a mine for lithium, which is used to make batteries for hybrid and electric vehicles.
The photo is of a gold mine. (Source)
That took me about one minute to debunk it.
I suggest people who post fake shit cancel their Facebook accounts.
THE WESTERN WORD POLL:
The results will be posted later this week.
