popular class

Turnout for the Spring 2019 ham radio class first day was outstanding. Icing on the cake is that a highly-knowledgable, skilled, professional teacher is bringing his young son to every class. I could not ask for a better co-teacher. Sixteen students and two instructors filled the Darby Library meeting room. They came from all over Ravalli County most planning to earn their FCC Technician license, but a few will be testing for the next level, the General class. I’m studying double: their book to insure good mentoring every Saturday plus the Amateur Extra manual so I can take the third and final step up the amateur radio licensing ladder when we all test in May. My drafted co-teacher came from […]

You want the brain tumor to just go away?

The dreaded, crushing words, “Inoperable brain tumor” are in modern medicine a death sentence. However, people who step outside the AMA box have had startling “good luck”. Before I would let them have their way with radiation treatments that sometimes work when they don’t kill the patient, I would be researching alternatives. My first step is always to use an Internet search engine whose results are not rigged. Unlike the 800-pound-gorilla of websearch and information technology, DuckDuckGo does not censor, slant results, or add every search you make to a dossier with your name on it. So go to DuckDuckGo and ask, “inoperable brain tumor shrinks” or something like that. In the results you already know what mainstream AMA medicine […]

dropping weather bombs around the world

In 1947 USofA top military brass announced their hope to control the weather as a weapon system more powerful than any potential on the horizon. The HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) facility in Gakona, Alaska was operated by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) from 1993 through 2015. Many observers say HAARP can and has been used for weather modification, to cause earthquakes and tsunamis, to disrupt global communications systems, and more. Some people thought shutting the Alaskan facility down meant the end of USAF, USN, DARPA weather manipulation … Dreamers. Twenty two years of research and development gave them a dozen functioning models […]

Bitterroot Ham class starts Saturday

I am reposting this to catch any stragglers. Response has been good enough to assure the class will take place. I will know in a few days how many new FCC license holders will be testing mid-May. One thing that holds many potential licensed hams back is their lack of electronics, radio, electrical or related background. I absolutely promise that electro-mechanical incompetents can and do pass this test. Another question I get is the expense. Paperback Technician Manuals are $30. Spiral-bound are $33. The testing session costs $17. Passing your first test earns you the FCC Technician license with no further costs between now and renewal ten years from now. Radios can be purchased for $25. It goes up…up…up from […]

you buy the product, or are the product

Modern robber barrons have something in common besides hyper wealth and power. I will highlight the key ingredient in the definition below. The Rise of Robber Barons As the United States transformed into an industrial society with little regulation of business, it was possible for small numbers of men to dominate crucial industries. Conditions which favored vast accumulations of wealth included the extensive natural resources being discovered as the country expanded, the enormous potential work force of immigrants arriving in the country, and the general acceleration of business in the years following the Civil War. Railroad builders in particular, needing political influence to build their railways, became adept at influencing politicians through the use of lobbyists, or in some cases, […]

on being a free man

The difference between doing what you want and doing what you have to do is accomplished simply by wanting to do what you must. Being ordered to take out the trash, haul firewood, build shelves, shovel snow or rotate the tires are jobs or chores. These are assignments given to children that they may be useful and contribute to family well-being, or to employees who exchange work for pay. However, the free man does these of his own volition in a priority order that makes sense to him. Those with fortunate finances can contract work they are either can’t or don’t want to do themselves. Those with less inspiration are free to live in squalor. It has always been such. […]

3-D printed air car plans – $300

I have an idea for a new business. I need a little help from the federal government, but this is going to be worth it. My business model says I’ll sell 4 million of these plans. Income = $1,200,000,000. I’ll send 20% to key politicians “for campaign finances”. Outgo = $240,000,000. They will create a special “Air Car Court” to deal with any claims or liability issues that arrise. Because it is so hard to estimate, you understand. If my cars fail to fly, crash a lot, kill a lot of people … ya’know all that stuff that can’t be helped… we will have a special court that understands the situation, can cover the costs by printing money, and can […]

flood warning

This epic snow will go somewhere when it melts. Are the ‘somewheres’ in your area going to handle that easily or should you be making plans for flooding? As I mentioned in The Blizzard of ’19 saga continues on March 1st, this unnatural heavy snow is setting us up for a special spring melt season. Here in The Bitterroot we stand at 143% of a normal water year. That is one piece of the flooding risk matrix. There is a large potential flow for our river. The threat gets REAL when warm rains bring the snow down in too big of a hurry for the river banks to contain. ——– the KPAX article warns ——– Ravalli County residents urged […]

dimbulb savings time

Sure is a shame about the hour I am losing this weekend. It was the one hour of the year I intended to spend worshiping our government… maybe next year. While there is even a .gov website describing circadian rhythms, other than the governments of Arizona and Hawaii, the rest of the governments within the USofA seem to be clueless about it. I’ll put it in simple terms even a legislator can comprehend: Messing with our clocks messes us up. The ONLY purpose it serves is to twice every year demonstrate governmental control over our daily lives. It COSTS the economy money. It kills hundreds of people every year. And, most importantly, It pisses me off. One year I skipped […]

gear reviews

I have read of, seen photos and videos of five star rating factories in China. It used to be that eBay, Amazon and others gave shoppers great value in their reviews and ratings. Price being equal, purchasing equations favored online because the ratings and reviews led you from the poorly designed or constructed to the good stuff. No more. Large buildings stuffed with cheap computers, great Internet access and hundreds of full-time low-wage workers crank out reviews for products undeserving of one five star rating, let alone thousands of them. An average review rating of 4 1/2 stars may well mean ten honest one-star review being overwhelmed by the manufacturer’s ratings factory. Reviews now read like e-mail or Craigslist scams: […]

gee, the weather seems odd …

This post, which is near and dear to my heart, comes from USA Watchdog.com. There is no superior expert on our side than Dane Wigington. In the article and video below, Greg Hunter and Dane talk about the importance of awakening the masses to what is going on over our heads and right in front of our faces. I continue to be amazed that people can avoid seeing it. Her is some help in seeing what many of us see. Ted Dane Wigington – We Face Abrupt Climate Collapse By Greg Hunter On March 6, 2019 In Political Analysis 64 Comments By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  Climate engineering researcher Dane Wigington says this year’s unusually cold winter in the United States was […]

background check nonsense

My ‘pen pal’ from Ammo.com sent me the message below on the background check requirement to purchase firearms. I figure it is good enough to share.  We kind-of have an idea of the background checks that “protect us” from bad guys getting guns.  Well, at least that is how the congresscritters sold the package.  It is instead just one of the continuing assaults on the natural human right to self defense. The images included herein are mine. Don’t blame Ammo.com. They struck me as appropriate. Ted ———————-     Here I am again… In your inbox on this cold yet sunny afternoon. At least that’s the weather here in the good ole Show-Me State. I breach your inbox today to […]

minimum wage

This political cartoon was just too good to pass up. I will want to find it someday, so here it is for future reference. I talked about it during the 2006 Idaho governor debates. If an employer has a job that someone wants to do there is no third party with business in the transaction. Entry level jobs are a place where work ethic and employee-employer relations are practiced. They are not intended to be the end of worker development nor wage growth. The reality of competition works both ways. Customers put downward pressures on prices. Employees must provide profitable service or the business fails. Congresscritters who face no price pressures, who almost universally have no clue as to […]

drug crisis

Politicians mean drugs they have laws against when using this phrase. They are close, like only 180-degrees off. It is their war on people using non-prescription drugs and their rules against natural healers that drive people in the wrong directions. Current polls vary, but at least two thirds of us support REPEAL of all laws against cannabis users and its use as medicine that was safely self-administered for centuries. Note: I did not say “legalize” on purpose. I will welcome reduced government malfeasance on this topic, but until their toxic presence in the world of cannibis is no more, we are all the losers. The winners? Big Pharma, Prison-Industrial Complex, organized crime, asset forfeiture collectors and a few others […]
