  • YWCA, Talks CSKT, Social Justice & Racism????

    in Politics

    In case you missed the "lecture and discussion" (more one sided "lecture") that the Missoula YWCA presented March 27, you just may find this episode really interesting. The "Y" classified this little get together under their Community Social Justice Series – CSKT Water Compact. The event tags were CSKT Water Compact, Racial Justice. Yep you read that right! "Racial Justice"

    This is from their website:

    "For our March YWTalks, we will host Mary Stranahan of the organization Montana Water Stewards for a lecture and discussion about the proposed CSKT-Montana Compact. According to the Reserved Water Rights Compact Comission, the Compact “will make new water available for commercial and irrigation use, end the water administration void on the Flathead Reservation, allow for economic development under conditions of legal certainty on and off the Reservation, and facilitate the completion of the statewide general stream adjudication.” For more information, contact Organizer Amanda at aopitz@ywcaofmissoula.org. 406 543 6691

    TVFM did attend and what you will hear in this episode is the raw uncut, unedited audio clip of this "lecture", accompanied with TVFM's comments. After which you just might contact the "organizer", not for infromation but to give her a piece of your mind and some real CSKT compact data!

    BTW There was another suprise speaker. Tune in to find out.

    Native Broadcast Network Presents-March to May Indie Folk Music from Seattle, WA

    in Music

    Who is March to May? 

     Darren Guyaz (guitar, vocals, keyboard) roamed the northern Appalachians through his childhood, plinking & plunking the classical keys until he ventured West to his birth-state of Montana, settling in Missoula to finish a degree in Geography. One evening on an old, historic homestead in the hills north of town, he picked up a friend’s guitar and began strumming, teaching himself how to play a few chords, finger-picking his way through the frets, and forever changing his musical expression.

    Beth Wesche (Celtic harp, vocals) Beth spent her formative years wandering through the Andes and across a smattering of U.S. states.  The daughter of a U.S. Foreign Service Officer, she stayed in each place just long enough to fall in love with it before moving on to the next adventure.  Music wove its way through her life from an early age - she sang in choirs from elementary school to college, beginning classical voice training and starting to sing a cappella as she grew older.  While living in Ashland, Oregon, she picked up the Celtic folk harp and found herself captivated by the sound.  However, a few short years after beginning to play, she moved to the East Coast, leaving her harp silent in her family’s living room for five years and largely convincing herself that music would have to take a back seat in her life.

    American Horror Show

    in Politics

    So... this is one of my favorite months. The month of evil spirits, spells, horror , monsters, vampires, witches and warlocks. Yeah.. kind of like more government pox on US the people... but a lot less scary than what the government actually does. October...the Global Halloween Month!!

    So during this episode. we want to hear your American Horror Story. Your neck of the woods carnival of horrors. The sheriff joke of a race in Missoula.  Any joke of an election. The Fed water grab.The oxymoron "wildlife management" and "wildlife confinement". Got Ebola? Mill levies ...just another cost of a brew and pizza slice. Gay marriage...another oxymoron. Illusion vs reality...or just another oximoron?

    I'm sure I missed a few, so call in and supply the rest.  Let's see how much of the real horror we can connect with the fictional Halloween horror.

    Two Examples of Govt Transparency Granite County MT Style

    in Politics

    Here is the first chit chat so called Granite County public meeting (Agenda item) I recorded Sept 16  and downloaded per request.
    Granite County Road & Bridge Foremen Discussion Sept 17 2014 09/21 by The View from Montana | Politics Podcasts

    Now compare that to what you will hear during this episode of TVFM. This is an example of a Granite County PUBLIC HEARING. One that was actually noticed twice in the local newspaper. Unfortunately not with the same application info presented at the hearing.

    See if either are familiar to you or similar to the public meetings and hearings taking place in your neck of the woods. This particular "public hearing" was noticed in the paper twice as required, but with not the same info presented at the hearing. After attending the "hearing" you kind of wonder, "Does it really matter, noticed or not, when you have these kind of public servants making decisions, supposedly,  for YOUR benefit?!!!"

    Scary! Believe me, what you don't know and/or ignore WILL come back and bite you in the butt. NOTHING that happens in your neck of the woods stays there if your neck of the woods feeds at the Federal trough.

    Plus if we have time Judge Dick M will give a critique of that Supreme court candidate debate held Sept 23 in Missoula at the UofM.

    Open Phones Thursday

    in Politics

    Got in late from what else....a meeting in Missoula. Another phony Confederated Salish & Kooteni water compact negotiation. Phony you ask? Well do ask, as this episode is open topic. We can talk about "Blue Gold"(the West's water) that the Feds want to "confiscate" from us, ALL of us. Or the South African genocide,  that Kriss Wolf introduced us to on his recent show.

    Then there's the Federal Lands poor management issue and possible transfer of OUR lands back to State management.

    Hell, why not just call and let us know what the Feds do do that isn't poor besides enriching itself at our expense....both $$$$wise and rights wise.

    It's you Make the Call Nite. So please feel free to participate. TVFM is not the government! We welcome your input...hear it and listen to it.Anti-commandeering doctrine
