We all have litmus tests that obviate the need for much research or study.
One of those tests that has NEVER let me down is—when Donald Trump, Dan McDonald and Steve Brixen agree on something, I KNOW they’re wrong and jump on the other side without a second thought.
That was the case last week regarding the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord. Some of the misinformation spouted by Trump during his announcement speech was reiterated by both Brixen and McDonald.
Recall that Dan vehemently opposed the Clagstone Conservation easement for reasons passing understanding. For the sake of Bonner County I hope his ideology won’t get in the way of pragmatic decision making.
