Annual Field Day is this weekend across the USofA.
The main event is to encourage individuals, groups, clubs and teams to deploy their radios into “field locations” – that is, to set up mobile, temporary radio communication centers.
Part of the game is to contest and see how many contacts each unit can make across the nation. That particular aspect of the program runs from noon Saturday to noon Sunday.
Members of the Bitterroot Amateur Radio Club (BARC) and the Bitterroot Emergency Amateur Radio Services (BEARS) are setting up for Field Day at the Hamilton Grange on Highway 93 – across from Murdoch’s south of Hamilton.
More important to me than the contesting are the aspects of setting up […]
From the Great Falls Tribune: I have a question for you.
We have a big LGBT event in Great Falls this weekend and my editors have asked me to pose this question:
In the wake of Sunday’s shooting in Orlando, does the governor think that Montana is tolerant toward LGBT people here?
Are there enough protections in place for the LGBT people?
Phil, thank you for the opportunity to share my views of this situation. I truly appreciate it.
The people of Montana are as tolerant of other people as anywhere in this country.
There has been, and continues to be a deliberate effort to subdivide us into ever-smaller factions, then pit those factions against each other. […]
The Internet and social media are great equalizers in politics, among other information fields. Today I got around to reviewing and updating my Linked in profile information.
It is a whole lot more relevant than it was, and I think gives a good overview of what I am trying to accomplish by running for Montana Governor. Linked-In summary of Ted Dunlap I am looking up at our Big Skies and seeing environmental “engineering” that needs to be researched, vetted or condemned by Montana agencies.
I see a pharmaceutical-prison industrial complex being fed by prohibition that has long-past proven worse than counter-productive.
My campaign focuses on those two issues.
Montanans who want to say those are […]
The following information came to me from several sources. These people had the temerity to stand before unconstitutional, illegal, immoral taking of property by government for the benefit of the ruling elite. We need people like them. We need to encourage and support those who stand against tyranny.
For reference, I also repost a few relevant parts of the Constitution under which the feds are supposed to be limited in their scope. -Ted The Bill of Rights
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government […]
“The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost invariably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are.”

Cannabis oil is used in cancer treatment. There are already numerous cases around the world which confirm the healing aspect of cannabis oil.
Cannabis oil has healed some very serious diseases, including anxiety disorders, epilepsy, MS (Multiple Sclerosis), cerebral palsy and cancer.
What’s the difference between cannabis, hemp and marijuana?
First of all, let’s clear up some definitions. Cannabis sativa is the plant and species; hemp and marijuana are both varieties or subspecies of it. Marijuana is actually a Spanish slang term meaning “Mary-Jane”.
Marijuana is simply considered to have a higher THC content than hemp. THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is one of the unique phytonutrients or plant chemicals of cannabis. However, both hemp and marijuana contain various cannabinoids, […]
propeller plane delivers “contrail” to The Bitterroot June 11, 2016
I was riding my bicycle on Conner Cutoff road when I saw an airplane approaching from the west. It was leaving a strong, broad, billowy “contrail”. One of those I see frequently in The Bitterroot that are extraordinary in volume and staying power.
What was really remarkable about this one was the noise that reached me once the airplane got overhead … propellers!!!
I really kicked myself for not taking my camera on the bike ride, but I took this photograph of its trail when I got home ten or fifteen minutes later.
This, rather obviously, is not prop wash or engine exhaust from an airplane.
Who is spraying, what, […]
Bitterroot sky from my front yard 4/27/16
If you have not noticed your blue skies traversed by high-level aircraft trailing billowing plumes that seem unnatural for jet aircraft, then you need to look up, and take note more often.
You may have observed that while weather reports may call for clear skies, these trails can criss-cross your blue sky, spreading into a milky white horizon-to-horizon overcast with distinct sharp edges that, again, do not look like the puffy, uneven billows of natural clouds.
If you haven’t observed this, discussion and information about “chemtrails” or “geoengineering” undoubtedly strike you as delusional. You KNOW they can’t be true because they make no sense. Nobody would do that.
Cognitive dissonance prevents […]
