In Montana You Can Make a Difference | Electric City Weblog

In Montana You Can Make a Difference | Electric City Weblog.

This was a very good blog even though I disagreed with some, well OK a lot,  of its perspectives.  Contributors  like Gregg Smith and Dave Budge kept things interesting.  And Rob Natelson  perspective as a constitutional scholar was much appreciated.  He did a lot of work.  They are closing down the blog.   There is a lot of that going around.

As a friend recently said, this is a time for more action and less words, words, words.  But I am grateful to those hardy souls who can take a lot of the noise out there and help  us connect the dots and in so doing connect with each other again without interference from our feudal lords and their lackeys.

Welcome to the new Montana Maven website.

Seems that my website “disappeared.” Not sure if I’ll try to find it or use its demise as a way to start anew, be born again, rise from the ashes, reboot and retoot.

For six years I tried like heck to “be part of the solution” by becoming active in the Democratic Party. I worked on two presidential campaigns, one US.Senate campaign, and one local state representative campaign. I became a County Chair, I was a delegate to the 2004 convention, I attended rallies, and state conventions and state dinners. I had dinner with the governor.
I had the only left talk radio show in Montana. Every Saturday I drove an hour up and an hour back to do three hours of doing battle with a bunch of libertarians. The upside was that I got to interview great minds like Francis Moore Lappe, Dean Baker, Matt Taibbi, Charlie Derber, Stephen Kinzer, Glen Ford, Rick Perlstein, Melvin Goodman,
and many many more.
A year ago they gave us the boot, the heave-ho, the axe, the what-for, the pink slip. Replaced us with some Tea Party “reformers”.
So I’m done with the Democrats. I’m off the radio. I still work hard for a living while my husband works at wrastling cows and baling hay. But I occasionally have a thing or two to say. So that’s what this blog is for.

 

A good March day
