This man is too dumb to be a senator. Or he’s making REAL GOOD MONEY to play dumb and sucks as an actor.
Either way, he has no one’s interests but his own at heart.
I’m not surprised.
On January 17, 2016 I emailed the senator the following:
I’ve been bothering (apparently) your esteemed colleague in the House of Representatives, Mr. Zinke, to no avail. I’m sure he thinks I’m crazy, but I’m angry more than anything. And I tend to do my research, my homework if you will. He doesn’t seem to know what my tax dollars fund, and doesn’t care to find out–he just votes to spend them.
I want the spraying of our Montana skies STOPPED. I don’t care what terms the DoD couches it in–National Security, my ass–I WANT THIS CRAP STOPPED.
We are not lab rats, Mr. Daines. No one, not your esteemed colleague or anyone else will tell me definitively WHAT they are spraying us with, and WHY. I would love to know what portion of that “defense” budget is being used to fund this spraying. If I wasn’t a single parent, if I had bucks to spare, I’d capture the residue of this spraying, take it to a lab, have it analyzed and bring suit in Federal Court just to force discovery.
Two weeks ago or so, the Air Force flew so low in their spraying that they filled my lovely little Montana valley with so much toxic chemical it looked like we were downwind of a major summer forest fire (something I have had more than my share of experience with).
Last summer, every freaking day, the sun would come up, the spraying would begin crosshatching the sky and by afternoon we were stuck with this toxic chemical haze. I WANT BLUE CLEAR SKIES AGAIN, Mr. Daines. AND AIR SO FRESH IT’S NEVER BEEN BREATHED. I WANT THIS SPRAYING STOPPED.
I grew up in a Boeing family. I know what jet engines spew at altitude. The trails left by regular jet engines in use DO NOT LEAVE TRAILS any longer than a finger held to the sky because that’s how long it takes for the exhaust to cool to the temperature of the surrounding air. So, don’t come back to me with the excuse that it’s just jets or jet engines, because if that were the case the East Coast would be socked in under continuous haze from the jet traffic in and out of the major airports. But they’re not. Hell, they get clear skies once in a while. Why don’t we?
You think this is healthy? NO, IT ISN’T. I have black residue all over my white truck AGAIN, even though I bleached the SOB LAST SUMMER. Sometimes the spraying is soooooo bad, especially in summer, I have to scrape the windshield and wash it before I can see to drive.
We just had a nice snow overnight. This morning, the sun threatened to show itself and damn, if they aren’t spraying us down into haze again. It’s only 9:41 am as I write this and the haze has already started its descent.
CROSS HATCHED SKIES ARE NEITHER NATURAL OR NORMAL, BUT THEY SURE ARE MAN-MADE.
CAN YOU PLEASE DO SOMETHING?
I’m sorry, but I look at accuweather every day, for over two years now, and all you see of a majority of the US is haze. Used to be we had clear skies–somewhere–but now, nada.
I am getting sick and tired of this. Not to mention the toxic exposure to God knows what. Especially that of my child.
Is the California drought being geo-engineered? From my research, it sure looks like it. Maybe so water companies can snap up more land on the cheap. Google that little sale, happened a few months ago. I brought this up to your esteemed colleague in the House before and after the sale of 13000 acres of land (if memory serves), but he didn’t respond.
Whatever you don’t know about geoengineering, educate yourself. I did and no, I didn’t limit my education to the climate change websites. But last summer was it for me. If I do nothing else in what life is left to me, I swear I’m going to get this stopped for my child, for the millions of innocent Americans and their children whose government apparently thinks of them as ants to be sprayed or lab rats to be experimented with. Unless there’s an election coming up.
We shouldn’t be messing with the climate processes of this planet, Mr. Daines. There’s even one government-funded “scientist” who thinks heating the ionosphere all the way to the Van Allen belts is A-OK, because as he was quoted in an article I read recently about the tear created in the Van Allen Belts with an ionospheric heater: since he doesn’t know what the Van Allen Belts do in relation to the climate of the entire planet, he’s not sure if we even need them. Hello?
I want this spraying stopped. I want the ionospheric heaters (HAARP was the prototype, now they have portable arrays), shut down before these idiots do something that negatively affects the climate processes of this planet permanently.
God is watching.

Thank you for contacting me to express your concern that lingering clouds left in the wake of airplanes are dangerous to air quality and are possibly chemical or biological agents released deliberately by government agencies. I value your point of view and appreciate the opportunity to respond.
I received my college degree in Chemical Engineering and I like to approach issues with a scientific perspective. Aircraft can naturally leave residual lines in the sky. The result of this condensation process is called a contrail and occurs as water is condensed due to exposure to cold air. Scientists have observed that water molecules cannot evaporate as the condensed water freezes, which results in a process in which the solid turns into a gas. Contrails can sometimes stick around much longer than your breath due to air temperature. Again, this occurrence is natural, and I believe there is no evidence to suggest nefarious activity by the U.S. government.
Again, thanks for contacting me. It is my number one priority in Congress to represent the values and interests of the people of Montana, and your input is very helpful as I do. I invite you to visit my new website, www.daines.senate.gov, for updates about activities in Washington that affect our lives in Montana or to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you again in the future.
United States Senator
Here is my reply, sent within an hour of receiving the above:
Let me quote your response to me so that I may adequately respond in kind:
“I received my college degree in Chemical Engineering and I like to approach issues with a scientific perspective. Aircraft can naturally leave residual lines in the sky.

Well, you might think that lame and fallacious argument of those “contrails are natural” will work in winter, Mr. Daines, when I can see my breath, but what about summer? Are you seriously going to try to sell the idea that water from a jet engine that was “frozen” at altitude is going to drift down from below zero to the 75 degrees or so of summer and not evaporate? Not even dissipate? You insult me, Mr. Daines. You obviously have me confused with an Obama-level Gruber. I resent the implication. Mightily.
God is watching.
And the senator has not yet Dained to make a reply.
That degree must’ve been honorary.
You cocksuckers. GOD IS WATCHING.
