We all know Facebook uses magical algorithms even they don’t understand, to dictate content that we see on our news feed.
They categorize all of us based on our political ideology, browsing habits, location, likes, friends and pages we follow, where we comment, interactions and countless other criteria we’d probably be afraid to find out about.
They use this system to sell products and services for their advertisers, then manipulate your future browsing habits to meet their share holders needs. In addition to influencing a political ideology and direction they believe in. Why not? We choose to be there. Many of us choose to be there only to keep an eye on what the enemy is up to. But we are still there. It’s become a necessary evil if you expect to defend your position and to support those ideologies you believe in.
If an entire political party’s voters believe there is nothing to be concerned with in the next election, does it affect voter turnout?
We know it does. When you can influence over Two Billion people and have a socialist justice agenda, you will use it. They might use it to infuriate people to protest regularly much like CNN does with their minions, or calm you down so you don’t think you need to vote because everyone else in your party is. Facebook is no different than CNN, they use it.
Is Facebook calming down conservatives so they think they don’t need to vote?
Like the flip of a switch, it seems that all of a sudden, we are seeing more and more comments from people we agree with, rather than those comments that we may disagree with. I have definitely noticed this myself, especially on political figures pages. It would be very simple for them to flip a switch to only allow you to see comments on pages and peoples posts that you agree with.
Facebook categorizes you politically whether their system allows you to see it any more or not.
What do you think?
Do you believe Facebook tailors your news feed to only allow you to see a limited number of posts you might agree with politically to influence your behavior and experience on their site?
NBCMONTANA – House bill could create more strict seat belt laws.
The Montana State House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on a seat belt safety bill on Monday. The bill, introduced by Rep. Frank Garner (R) of Kalispell, would create a vehicle occupant safety pilot program. It would make driving without a seat belt a primary and citable offense.
“Montana right now has a secondary seat belt law, that means you can only be cited if you’ve been stopped for another offense,” said Garner. “The purpose of this one is to try to show the primary seat belt law will increase the number of people wearing seat belts and will save lives.”
According to the Montana Department of Transportation, two-thirds of vehicle occupants who died in a crash in 2017 were not wearing a seat belt. That is 84 people.
If passed, the new bill would allow any driver to be stopped for not wearing a seat belt. Each passenger of the vehicle would be required to buckle up as well. “The focus of this is education. Trying to get people to wear their seat belts, make sure they understand that increasing Montanans’ occupant safety is paramount,” said Garner. There have been attempts to create a primary seat belt law in Montana in the past, but none have been successful. Garner says this bill would be different because it is focused on seat belt education. It is also a pilot program which expires in four years. At the end of those four years it would be up to the legislature to decide whether to continue with the law.
The hearing takes place at on Monday at 8 a.m. Garner says the House could take action on the bill by the end of the week. Be sure to contact your representatives giving them your support or opposition to this bill!

Many Sheriff’s around the country, including those in New Mexico and Colorado, are presenting and passing resolutions that make their counties “Gun Sanctuary Counties”. Meaning they will refuse to enforce unconstitutional gun control laws in their county if passed into state law.
Watch, then share the video about other counties who have passed such resolutions with your county Sheriff. Then ask them to go on record for their support or opposition to such a resolution in your Montana county.
