Open Federal lands or give management over to the state

That was a great article in the Thursday, June 18 issue of the Pathfinder by Dale Terrillion on “Public Lands”. It seems the government forgets who owns and pays taxes to support public lands. I don’t understand why disabled groups, senior citi...

Daines, be honest and tell us how you will bring back jobs

Steve Daines’ campaign ads that claim he will bring back the jobs from overseas suggest he is either stupid or naive.  Here’s why... The jobs, if they ever were in the U.S, went overseas because there is cheaper labor and less government...

Listen to your own advice and chill out

I noticed in last week’s Pathfinder in letters to the editor that several people felt that Mr. Ashmore was trying to infringe on Roxie’s first amendment rights. I think one of them even offered the advice, if you did not like her letter, don’t...

Tax relief for Montana property owners?

COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. are at more than 100,000, more than 40 million people have filed for unemployment and the U.S. economy is officially in “recession.” While Montana has experienced relatively few deaths, its economy, too, is taking a...

 

Politically correct

In defense of Roxie Sterling, I think the first amendment is still in effect. But the way things are goin,’ it may not be for long. She has a right to express her political views. Some may not like it but that’s her right as an American. Perhaps...

Please, be more productive with your time

I fail to see the value in Roxie Sterling’s frequent, vitriolic diatribes denigrating democrats. We know all too well where she stands on the issues facing this country. Her incessant belittling of people and their opinions, that do not concur...

 

Thank you for the support

This morning I spent picking up yard signs with Carter and thinking about all the many people who helped the campaign be a great success, and you are one of them. We still have a journey ahead, but last night was a major victory, we won the primary...

Stand up and open up America

In my opinion Obama and Biden are clear up to then necks in the deep state swamp. They interfered in the Trump campaign and in the presidency of our President Donald Trump. Other presidents left the White House gracefully and kept their mouth shut...

Hold up our president

If a Democrat is elected as president we will see socialism and then communism, faster than going down a greased slide. I watched in dismay as I saw democratic governors take on communistic rules to control their states. Is this a practice run for th...

Our Governor Steve Bullock has made an error in judgment with his decision to force Montana landlords into canceling evictions and extending rental payments. What Bullock fails to realize is that although most tenants will eventually pay the rents...

 

My ballot for the Democratic Primary

For whatever it’s worth, this is for whom I’m voting in selected Democratic Primary races and why.  One of the most important votes you will cast is for Montana Supreme Court (at the end of the ballot). Most people ignore it, so your vote will...

 

Commissioner Vero is the real deal

We are all familiar with the adage, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” Juanita Vero is the exception. Vero, who is running to maintain her seat as Missoula County Commissioner, is the real deal. Juanita Vero is representative of...
