Beef for China deal isn't done yet
Regarding the much ballyhooed beef deal which has captured The Gazette’s (and Montana Standard's) headline, I am reminded of Rod Tidwell.
Remember him? The character played by Cuba Gooding Jr. in Jerry Maguire? “Show me the money.”
OK, Senator Daines, where is the money?
The contract is no contract, only a Memorandum of Agreement. I quote: "The Parties agree that this MOA shall not constitute a legally binding or enforceable obligation or agreement in any respect on the part of any Party."
Amazing how no one looks at the fine print these days.
