    A Montana housewife tells her husband he needs a pair of loafers. He goes into town, comes back with a couple of farmers under his arms.

      Hadn't heard that one before.

      What do you call a basement full of Montana ranchers? A whine cellar.

        But i gotta defend my home a bit.

        The ranchers/farmers are the state poster boys for receiving federal assistance and grazing rights on federal land; however, a large chunk of the money coming in goes to road construction and maintenance, rural mail service, etc... not just payouts for stock and crop losses.

        Ed, On your comment above about the fake liberatarians:  YES!

        They want the guv'ment out of their life until fire season.  Then they are the first ones in line asking for firefighters to protect their slice-o-heaven.  Same with the lumber industry.  Environmentalists be damned, but then they will cry to high heaven for federal trade protection when an international vendor cuts into their market.  Remember the freemen?  They are the biggest bunch of hypocrits of them all!  They want open markets when wheat is high but then are the first ones in line asking for subsidies when the wheat prices tank on the international market.
