Contrails vs Chemtrails video clip

I have a hard time imagining anyone looking up at our Montana skies regularly and NOT noticing something very unnatural going on. Yet thousands of us do.

Today I ran across this short video primer showing and describing the differences in science, fact and observation.

Here is a simple, straightforward discussion of contrails compared to chemtrails… no rant, no rave, just the simple facts of the matter in a 4 minute, 36 second long video.

coffee roasting

My joy of coffee evolved a long ways over the years. Appreciation for quality drove me to more and more select roasters, fresher and fresher suppliers, then finally to the fanatics of select green coffee beans at Sweet Maria’s.

…We are more than just another online store, we are a virtual coffee university. Simply put, we really like what we do…

If you decide you are ready to graduate from high-end roasted coffee, I doubt you can do much better than to buy fresh green beans from their round-the-world selection. The variety is nearly overwhelming. Simply start with one of their samplers to get a feel for the choices. My current favorite java comes from, of all […]

How to trigger nuclear Armageddon

Ask the other candidates if they have an idea of what Russia is up to. I bet their answers will not contain much of what has been rattling around in my head for a couple of years. This is heating up and could well come to a head before we get to November’s election. If so, EVERYTHING will change.

I wrote the following research paper for my news/commentary websites Bitterroot Bugle and Idaho Liberty. But I can’t help think this knowledge and wider world view would be a valuable attribute to have in your next Montana Governor.

Those dang Russians are provoking war. I mean, look at where they put their country… right smack dab in the middle […]

first aid failure

I tested our first aid supplies, phone list, land-line telephone, backup telephone, radio network and found all of them wanting.

Many details to attend to and some significant repairs in planning/function.

A dog guest and Scooter were having a gay old time when she somehow impaled herself on a steel post I had tried to remove some time ago… but didn’t persevere as I rather obviously should have.

She set to screaming in obvious injured and confused pain trapped with this rod entering her gut and nearly exiting her back. Nobody but me could get close (she trusts me more than anyone on the planet, though she is more devoted to, and adoring of Missy than anyone on Earth).


Uncelebrating the Fourth

by Harry Browne

July 4, 2003 Unfortunately, July 4th has become a day of deceit.

On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress formally declared its independence from Great Britain. Thirteen years later, after a difficult war to secure that independence, the new country was open for business.

It was truly unique — the first nation in all of history in which the individual was considered more important than the government, and the government was tied down by a written Constitution.

It was the one nation where you could live your life secure in the knowledge that no one would ask for your papers, where you weren’t identified by a number, and where the government wouldn’t extort a percentage of […]

radio field day in Hamilton

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 […]

question for the governor candidates

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. […]

Linked in + Twitter

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 […]
