What If It Doesn't Get Better?

Sponsored by CrisDental Family Dentistry & New Leaf Hyperbaric's & Wellness Center

Is it me or does it feel like we're on the edge of some giant collapse?

Here in Montana property values are through the roof and many peoples property taxes doubled and tripled.

I see news that the housing market is teetering on the edge.

The stock market? Who knows?

Inflation is at record highs and so are mortgage rates.

And yet some of you (34% according to polls) still stand behind our president.

Far behind, and silently behind, but you will still vote for him in 2024 out of stubbornness not common sense or concern for your neighbors.

You hate Donald Trump so much and fear him so much that you will put your neighbors, your friends and even yourself at the brink of disaster.

I think it's time we start asking hard questions and ask until we get answers.

Maybe we need to call out those who, bully into silence, those who disagree with them?

Perhaps it's time they answer the tough questions and give us solid reasons, not the statistic they heard on MSNBC, as to why this president is better than the last.

Perhaps they need to look at their pension or 401k and tell us how that's working out for them.

Some mornings as Kathy and I drive to Helena we hear an interview or listen to spoiled, uneducated American's screaming to support Hamas and at the same time yelling chants against Jews. Really, this is their idea of kindness, equity and inclusion? Remember when those same people were telling us we were committing hate crimes? Yeh, laughable now if it weren't so serious. Hypocrites.

Those same people are concerned with the rights of our gay and lesbian friends, as are we, and about those in the Trans community.

Yet if they thought about it for more than a second they might remember the groups they vow to support hate those communities. Some of those groups kill people just for being who they are.....


I know in the Bible it speaks of people not seeing right from wrong and listening to leaders with lies dripping from their tongues (my words), but is this really happening? Have these people no discernment at all?

Maybe this is the end....maybe by the time we get to the end of the rope we'll be hoping it is.

I worry for my kids and their kids. Maybe it would be better if they not have any, the way the world is going.

The only thing that gives me hope is those I run into in Montana who don't buy any of it.

No one here has to play dumb or pretend to agree with ignorance.

My hope is this gets so bad that you'd have to be brain dead not to see it and I have a feeling, for some, we are awfully close.

I love being told why I vote a certain way buy a moralizing, pretend journalist. The majority of Americans don't want either candidate to run, but I only see your disdain for those that approve of one of the two. Why can't the Republicans put up someone smart and compassionate, rather than a divisive buffoon who once wondered how big his infant daughter's jugs were going to be; why isn't his support seen as stubbornness? Why do you wear your "We will not comply" shirt and then champion such an autocratic leader?

I also won't be told that I support Hamas because I care about dead and dying Palestinian children. The governments of each group have much innocent blood on…

Rick is so dumb he has absolutely no way to compute a rational comment like yours.


It's not going to get better. It WILL get worse. That is why Jesus is coming for those who "watch and pray". What we are seeing now is some of what will bring Him back. But He also cautioned that these wars and earthquakes and floods and horrors of man upon men are "the beginning of sorrows". Only God can end it, and that will happen when a few more abominable things take place. We pray. Constantly. God is always at work. Always. The trouble (for us) is that HE is not bound by time and we ARE. So....we wait.


I agree with you, Rick, and a lot of rural folks I talk with do as well. Seems as though those not blinded by hate realize things are wrong in our country and we are on the brink of disaster. Those that are filled with hate just keep gripping it and the ideologies that support it tighter and tighter.... seemingly unable to let it go (example; see Mr. Gilberts current comment). I am unaffiliated and have friends on both sides of the isle that realize that Mr. Biden is the worst President in the history of this country and is but a puppet for the elite and their agendas. I don't know if we are headed into oblivion, but I…

Likely for very different reasons, I dislike Biden quite a bit amd can’t believe he’s the only option we have. Trump is an obvious dumpster fire on all fronts. Seems like I’m a country of 330 million, we’d have more choices, but we don’t. And in some cases I choose to fight if peace means letting conspiratorial loud-mouthes spread stupidity. Hmm maybe I don’t fit in your little box that you’d like to stuff me in.

tRump has already laid out his plans to end democracy and become the autocratic dictator (for life) of America if he gets reelected. He has got you Republicans so bamboozled in thinking he is going to help/save you. Biden is doing a great job, considering what tRump and his cronies left him with. Once again the Democrats rescued America from the absolute failures of a Republican administration. Happens EVERY time a Republican becomes president. You Republicans can't see the forest through the trees...

Oh, Wayne, you do live in a fantasy world don't you. Go ask your neighbors what they think. Did you see the poll where 79% of D voters don't think Biden is up to the job? I think it was NYT. That means you and the other 25% with your heads buried in the sand are alone. "Biden is doing a great job?" OMG that made me laught out loud. A friend in Montana follows my page TOO and said something about you today.....What does it mean when someone is "Out to Lunch?" LOL. I told her we actually agreed a couple of times.....she looked shocked.
