Extremists care not about economic devastation

Print Article

To the editor: I was shocked and amazed that Judge Molloy shut down the Montanore mine application once again! Astounding!

No, not really. I wasn’t surprised at all. Actually, it was quite predictable. But his decision does confirm two things. First of all, the far-left environmentalists do not really care about the people, the families and the towns inside of Lincoln and/or Sanders Counties. To them they are just unavoidable collateral damage. Secondly, our environmental laws must be eliminated or, at worst, dramatically changed.

The extreme environmentalists, who so effectively control the Democratic Party and collaterally, Sen. Tester, consider the economic devastation of Lincoln and Sanders counties as collateral damage. It is the same concept as when bombing an enemy, innocent bystanders are killed or maimed. So sorry, but the end justifies the means so to speak. For these extremists, the poverty and unemployment created by decisions like this are the necessary result of creating wilderness and/or their giant preserve and, by the way, well worth it!

The enforcers of this doctrine are our black-robed dictators (federal judges) who use the ever present environmental laws as effectively as a guided missile from a combat jet — one stroke of the pen and all those jobs are blown into oblivion.

It makes no difference who you elect to Congress or our state’s Legislature as long as these laws are in effect. A single judge (like Molloy) can overrule Congress, our governor, our Legislature and the will of all the people of Lincoln and/or Sanders County — by himself!

If you want good paying jobs, a good economy, decent schools and modern infrastructure your only hope is to elect U.S. senators and representatives who articulate and support the need to change these outdated and antiquated laws. Sen. Daines and Rep. Gianforte are on board — Sen. Tester is not.

It was no surprise that Molloy shut down the mine just as it is no surprise that the Democrats care more about their precious wilderness then people who must, in their opinion, continue to be the collateral victims of their rabid environmental philosophies. And yes, to change this situation it is necessary to elect people to our U.S. Congress who will drastically change or eliminate them once and for all. As for those Lincoln/Sanders County residents who support this far-left environmental movement, I wish all of them the poverty they so richly deserve.
