Reputation is what men and women think of us; character is what God and angels know of us. – Thomas Paine
Today’s commentary deals with:
- Robocalls in Montana
- Politics and Religion
Robocalls in Montana:
The Associated Press reported that a federal judge has upheld the constitutionality of Montana’s law prohibiting most robocalls.
The key words in that report are “prohibiting most robocalls.”
I have always thought that our “esteemed” Montana Attorney Generals – whether it be Mike McGrath, Steve Bullock, or Tim Fox lack the balls to enforce the law. I think they are afraid of prosecuting one of their friends.
Even when candidates admit to breaking the law, nothing is done.
Back in 2005, two Democrats (Jon Tester and John Morrison) were running for U.S. Senate and told Lee Newspapers they were making robocalls…and breaking Montana law. Nothing was done.
So fellow Montanans – don’t hold your breath – we’re still going to receive those annoying robocalls and our attorney general is going to look the other way.
Politics and Religion:
On MSNBC this morning, Joe Scarborough went after David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network, who was promoting his new book, “The Faith of Donald Trump.”
Scarborough went after Trump’s Christianity which, in my opinion, is dangerous ground to tread.
I don’t know if Donald Trump is a Christian or not. That’s something I will not judge. I do believe that the office of the Presidency is a tough enough job that the person holding that office should be praying to God for help.
No matter who the President, we should be praying for him/her.
