Victor Borge – classy comic

I was reading a book from a stylish author who wrote of an incident around attending a Victor Borge show. I have heard/read of the name, but could not place it anywhere. So I asked DuckDuckGo, which my regulars know to be much more reliable and uncensored than the 800-pound gorilla of search engines. I knew so little. This one YouTube clip is of a talented artist and very clever comic.

ham radio repeaters

I created a presentation for our local ham radio club to explain the environment our repeater engineer was dealing with. The problem many great sites have is that their prominence attracts multiple transmitters with each addition making it harder for the repeater to pick up the signals we want out of the electromagnetic flood. Thus the situation I describe with this Downing Mountain repeater is common to many. I called this “Tracking A Transmission”. We follow a signal from the operator’s mouth through his radio and up to the repeater overlooking Hamilton Montana. Once the repeater gets the information, it transmits it out from a large antenna with 50 watts of power pushing it as much as 50 miles away. […]

electricity, components & circuits

Chapter 3 in the Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL) Ham Radio License Manual is the most challenging to most students. As I prepare for today’s Ham class, I am assembling tools, tricks, tips and my outline. I figured I might as well share them here. Remember that out of the 35 questions on your written exam, 26 correct answers is a passing score. You can afford to miss nine, or one out of every four and still earn your Technician’s License. You could miss, or even skip over every component and circuit question without failing your exam. Do not get all balled-up in this one chapter. On the other hand, it is cool, and even useful to understand a bit […]

Georgia Guidestones

This one has to be the meanest, nastiest, most blatant and significant monument of them all. So much of what I publish here is hard to swallow. I understand that. The automatic reaction of normal people is: Nobody would do that. It doesn’t make sense. Nobody could get away with that. Who would want to do that? You need to understand that there are genuine sociopaths and psychopaths in the world. They really exist. They feel zero empathy when they hurt or kill others. I know you know that, but somehow it doesn’t make sense that they get into positions of power. Where else would they want to be? Who else would say anything and do anything in order to […]

obelisks – marking turf?

Yesterday’s Statue of Liberty monument post got me thinking about another monument that is not what we think it is. I admit right off that I don’t know exactly what these obelisks mean, but they have been spreading around the world for two thousand years. People of exceptional power erect these … appears to me like they are marking their turf. The Illuminati, Bilderbergs, Rothschilds, Poseurs or whoever might be at the top of the dark forces divided their three priorities into religious, monetary and enforcement. Each got its own country-within-a-country and each got its own obelisk. The Washington Monument and its two independent-city-state brothers is where I started today’s article. But as often happens, this obelisk research got ideas […]

Lady Liberty is not who we thought

Let’s start with the sculpture created by one of the most meticulous sculptors of the era. That strong jawline looks much more like contemporary Greek sculptures of men than any of their women. Why do we call him “Lady Liberty”? He may well be the world’s most recognizable cross dresser. Looking a little further into the model for this colossal creation we find that Helios, The Colossus of Rhodes at 107 feet tall, was constructed in 280 BC set astride of their harbor after the local folks successfully defended their community against attacking hordes. While there is a scarcity of 2,000-year-old Helios photographs, numerous artists gave us images that look interestingly similar to our New York harbor statue. Web […]

UCLA law school schooled on diversity

We all know it. We all see it. This diversity mantra, the entire 8 years of Obamination created inequities and animosities where there were none. The cheerleaders keep on selling failed programs because it serves their greater plan. Once in a while someone will articulate a fine counter-argument. Here I share just such an essay. – Ted – Hat-tip to American Thinker where I first found it. The best ‘Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion’ statement in the history of political correctness By Thomas Lifson   Professor Stephen Bainbridge is getting a lot of well deserved attention and praise for staring for staring down the academic diversity mafia and throwing its own rhetoric back in its face.  Required to submit to what amounts to a loyalty oath to “diversity” in […]

ending world hunger and poverty

This is such a wonderful idea it would be difficult to find anyone who would not agree that fixing these problems would be a laudable goal. The trick is figuring out how to approach that challenge. It turns out that the obvious and popular first choice is dead wrong – far worse than doing nothing. The presentation in this video is GREAT!!! Watch it for a few minutes. I am sure you will agree. Immigration World Poverty and Gumballs 2010 Presented by author/journalist: Roy Beck – Numbers USA Spread this video at your will. This was taped in 1999. Global humanitarian reasons for current U.S. immigration are tested in this updated version of immigration author and journalist Roy Beck’s colorful […]

DONATIONS for web hosting expenses

Help defray the costs of hosting this website. My annual bill reminds me that I ought to offer you the opportunity to help me afford my publishing empire. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Without help it is around $700 a year out of my pockets. It went up a lot last year when I upgraded to a faster, stronger, better hosting plan. I cut it back slightly last week, but it is still a bigger chunk than a rational pensioner would toss out just to have a soapbox. I set up a donation button below that accepts PayPal payments or credit card payments through them. As the panhandlers on the street say with their cardboard signs, ANYTHING HELPS. – Ted – […]

wave behavior

Whether it is a stone tossed into a glassy-smooth pond, sound waves coming out of a trombone or electro-magnetic waves enabling radios to communicate, the wave behaviors are direct relatives to the physicist. One such person built a model to demonstrate wave behavior then his employer, Bell Labs, produced a movie of it. I almost called it a video, but those were not yet invented in 1959 when this was produced. Last year I pounded enough correct answers into my head that I passed my Amateur Extra exam. My motivation was that I really wanted to UNDERSTAND radio much better. I did not clear that hurdle on pure expanded knowledge of radio, but I found several tools that helped. […]

this break is tough to maintain

I am having a hard time NOT going to my normal sources for news. I feel like I’m walking through a wilderness of lions, tigers and bears with my eyes closed and ear muffs on. Yeah, I’m edgy and working hard to resist Going There. The other side of the coin is that my own thinking is taking over. Stuff that has been suppressed is now bubbling to the surface. The READ –> RESPOND process has temporarily been suspended… replaced with THINKING… strange concept… I suppose we all ought to try if from time to time. I’m holding myself to a week off. I don’t know what happens after that. We will find out. […]

Stupor Bowl

Mom’s team made USofA football’s big game. In honor of that occasion I brought television into my home for the first time in 30 years (one day only). OhMyGawsh! What the masses are being fed is a really nasty diet. I am ever so glad people are waking up and walking away. By the way, her California 49ers won on PC points for having NFL’s first female head coach, but lost the game. I suppose you can’t have everything. The show was not so much startling to me as it was affirmation that everything I had read about the Deep State propaganda machine was true. It was slick, but quite thin, obvious and ugly. We are not the target market. […]
