Mandated by the Health Department??? WTH??? What are they going to do if you try to shop without a band? Beat you with nightsticks? Shoot you? Herd you into cattle cars?...oh wait, that happened in Germany and a couple other places...my mistake... On the other hand, tell them to shove it....oh, as of 2010 there were 7,369 people in the county, with a density of 1.5 persons per square mile...and it isn't much of a drive to go east to Roosevelt County....

They really need to explain why they are demanding to label people. It was not right to do to the Jews of 1939, and it is not right in the America of 2020. Apparently, the residents of Montana let their state slip out of their fingers, and they need to take it back in the next couple of elections.

I remember spending several weeks in beautiful Montana. It wasn’t a very friendly place. We were nice people, not pretentious, not demanding, not snooty-looking or -acting. But everyone seemed to have a bias. A young saleswoman in a Levi store told us how much Montanans hate people from Wyoming. No support for her remark. Later on read about their strange and dangerous senator, Jon Tester, who had never spend a night away from his Montana home until he was elected to the Senate. Maybe it is possible to be too much “country”?

If you take a look at the location of and census data for Valley County, Montana it is doubtful that the problem is Californians moving there. Solid Republican county, the population is decreasing steadily, located in northeastern Montana. By the way, the only people I have known that were trying to change Montana into the state they moved from were a retired military officer and his wife from Ohio. They helped form a group that successfully lowered the speed limit in Montana. Because obviously going fast on the straight empty, well maintained freeways in eastern Montana is just as dangerous as driving fast on the congested, bumpy, archaic roads in Ohio.

Imperialist dictators are coming out of the woodwork right now. Reminding us of Nazi Germany where Jews had to wear id markers. The most common of these was the yellow or blue star, which was worn on the left breast and back of the Jews’ clothing. This was a small patch of yellow cloth shaped like the Star of David and with the Star of David drawn on it. It also usually had the word "Jew" or "Jude" printed on it. Jews were required to make these stars themselves as a sort of demoralization technique. If not wearing a yellow star, a Jew could be arrested and put in prison or exported to a concentration camp. So if someone isn't wearing these nifty little pink wrist bands what happens to them? A free train ticket to a beach holiday? A police car ride to a FEMA internment camp? Arrested on a felony charge? The mentality of Hitler and the Third Reich is the same mentality of these small minded little dictators in Montnazi County.

Valley County has so far had no COVID-19 cases. Right next door is Roosevelt County with 6 cases so far. Out-of-county shoppers can still pick up goods at the curb, but they can't enter the stores. Now does it make just a little bit of sense?

That’s the point in his new documentary, “Planet of the Humans,” which was released Tuesday for free on YouTube. In a long and poorly written introduction on the YouTube page, the people who made the video explain that the green revolution could have worked out if only the whole movement hadn't sold itself out to the rich and powerful, resulting in a sham and a scam.

VATICAN CITY - Pope Francis made an impassioned plea for protection of the environment on Wednesday’s 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day, saying the coronavirus pandemic had shown that some challenges had to be met with a global response. Francis praised the environmental movement, saying it was necessary for young people to “take to the streets to teach us what is obvious, that is, that there will be no future for us if we destroy the environment that sustains us”.(Snip)Recounting a Spanish proverb that God always forgives, man sometimes forgives but nature never forgives, Francis said: “If we have deteriorated the Earth, the response will be very ugly.”
