*Note: The people in the photo above are extras for the TV show, while some may be Montana lawmakers- the photo is not of the Montana Legislature wearing masks.

So, apparently they're doing some filming for the hit TV show Yellowstone in the Montana State Capitol building this week. So what's with all the masks?

State Rep. Barry Usher (R-Billings), a great lawmaker who is now running for the state senate and owns a Harley dealership in Billings, posted the above photo on Facebook. (We got his permission to share it here) He added, "At Montana Capitol for Law and Justice Interim Committee and they are filming for Yellowstone."

Someone had the same question upon seeing the photo- what's with all the masks? Anyone who has closely followed the Montana Legislature knows that the Republicans who have huge majorities in the Legislature do not wear masks (by and large), and did not even in 2020.

Barry Usher: They only wore the masks when not filming - I guess when the cameras were on, COVID does not transmit???

I wondered the same thing...why the masks if they want to be realistic? I guess it's just the off camera virtue signaling, or probably some Hollywood liberal union mandate. Do the Montana Democrats even wear masks anymore? I know how hard they cling to the absurd mandates and the failed masking policies and mandates of the past, but do they even wear them anymore either?

I was one of those guys who for a long time hadn't watched Yellowstone, but then my friend Kelly in Glasgow said I had to watch it. If you've watched the TV show Yellowstone, its kind of funny because admitting to it is like something out of a Seinfeld episode- "not that there's anything wrong with that." Taylor Sheridan, the co-creator of Yellowstone, does do an incredible job with the show.

PICS: See Inside the Historic Texas Ranch Where the New 'Yellowstone: 6666' Spinoff Is Filmed

The massive, historic Texas ranch where the new Yellowstone spinoff Yellowstone: 6666 is filming has sold for just under $200 million, and pictures show a property that is truly part of Texas history.

The 6666 Ranch — better-known as the Four Sixes Ranch — in Guthrie, Texas, dates back to 1870. The ranch centers around a 13-bedroom, 13-bathroom, 13,280-square-foot main residence, which is constructed of quarry rock that was hauled to Guthrie by wagon. The ranch also includes vast, sweeping fenced pastures, farmland, fenced-in pens for cattle, a more recent addition for horses, a water filtration plant that serves the ranch's water needs and more.

There are separate camp manager's homes in both the North Camp and the South Camp of the ranch, which encompasses nearly 225 square miles of land. Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan is part of a group of investors who recently acquired the property for $192 million, and he has been shooting his new show out there in recent months.
