Using a linear regression model that augmented the available data from both national polls and state-level surveys, the Ballot Measure electoral model clearly shows that Montana isn’t worth jack shit in this election and that you shouldn’t give the slightest fuck about it one way or the other. Statistical trends over the past four elections already suggested that this worthless expanse was about as fucking meaningless as a state could get, but with incoming exit polls and early voting data, it’s now obvious that MT can go suck a fat one, because its three paltry electoral votes sure as shit don’t matter one way or the other.

Some are unable to do that; the sick, the disabled, the very young, the very old, the vulnerable.
Bunker, garden, swale, food forest, refugee housing, escape tunnel, barricade, root cellar, fortification, hard to say in advance. It all falls under the heading of "dig in and hold on" I guess.
I never vote - it just encourages them to run again.

I started the thread because of the "Montana" theme of the Onion article
finding amusement with those who live there
much of the angst and protest is staged

so much for "being nice" (or adult)
The election of Trump as the 45th US president has led many fans of The Simpsons to recall an old episode which apparently predicted it.
Bart To The Future, first broadcast in 2000, showed how the lives of the main characters might turn out.
A grown-up Lisa Simpson was seen as the White House incumbent, explaining to her staff she has "inherited quite a budget crunch from President Trump".
She then asks her secretary of state, childhood friend Milhouse Van Houten, how bad the country's finances are as a result of Trump's time in office. He replies: "We're broke."
"That just seemed like the logical last stop before hitting bottom. It was consistent with the vision of America going insane," he told The Hollywood Reporter.
"What we needed was for Lisa to have problems beyond her fixing, that everything went as bad as it possibly could, and that's why we had Trump be president before her."
