squeezing the swamp creatures

May you live in interesting times Whether a curse or blessing depends on attitude. I am convinced we will live in interesting times. Much like standing in line at the snack bar when the best plays of the game take place on the coluseum field, we have the choice to watch this show or not. I tend to read rather than watch. This morning one thing led to another, and I found myself watching YouTube videos that were hugely enlightening. I am thinking we have been gifted a great seat in the most dramatic show in several centuries. It would be a shame to not give viewing at least a little bit of our time. The following videos are amazing […]

2006 Idaho governor candidate debate

Seeing Ron Paul championing my main 2006 campaign theme a decade later inspired me to look for this video. I couldn’t find it at the PBS website, so I uploaded a copy I had saved years ago. Debating in front of television cameras live to a state-wide audience was a terrifying to do, but probably the best performance of my political career. My biggest campaign theme was liberal tax credits for scholarships to private schools equal to a maximum of half what taxpayers spend on government schools. We would save money while liberating education. It was a good idea then. It still is.

resisting the all-seeing-eye

This came as a newsletter from the search engine I have been using for quite a while. I highly recommend duckduckgo for all your websearches. They have even more suggestions for ducking, at least a little bit, the Surveillance State. -Ted How to Live Without Google Remove Google from your life? Yes, it can be done! Google trackers have been found on 75% of the top million websites. This means they are not only tracking what you search for, they’re also tracking which websites you visit, and using all your data for ads that follow you around the internet. Your personal data can also be subpoenaed by lawyers, including for civil cases like divorce. Google answered over 100,000 such […]

Tor – what for?

Wondoze Exploder is still the big dog in Internet browsing tools. Mozilla Firefox escapes some of its more onerous aspects, and is a strong second. Firefox adds a modicum of resistance to The Great Database accumulating everything there is to know about everybody they wish to control – roughly everybody. The best computer brains on the planet include many who are less than in love with Big Brother. They are freedom of thought’s friends. Somewhere much lower on that food chain are those who have sold their souls to The Man … the programming prostitutes. Fortunately, the A team is on our side. You do, of course, have to do your part. That brings me back to Internet browsing… and […]

real Libertarian’s view

The Radical’s Obligation by L. Neil Smith L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE Number 901, December 4, 20 [email protected] Attribute to L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise I had a “discussion” earlier this week, online, with an individual attempting to excuse the many and grievous shortcomings of Libertarian Party Presidential candidates over the years. I had remarked that it was a damned shame that the LP has always been unable—or unwilling—to nominate a candidate who is actually a libertarian. It was this fellow’s view—the “Mrs.Grundy” hypothesis—that traditional libertarian positions on issues (i.e., the plain, unvarnished truth about who we are and what we believe) are too frightening for folks in general, and have to be watered down and nearly compromised […]

campaign spending

I am on the November 8th ballot for Montana Governor because the incumbent is an anti-self-defense elitist, and because no other candidate will make ending cannabis prohibition and testing the safety of our soil, air and water into important priorities. Every vote in the [X] Ted Dunlap for governor box says those things are important enough that person bothered to cast a ballot for them. I do not expect to be elected governor. I could handle it well were that to happen. Management by Objectives, that is hiring good people and empowering them to do good work, is something I am very good at, along with setting appropriate priorities. But, what I want to have happen is that enough votes […]

grass roots movie projects

I’m introducing you to two movie projects that are quite interesting. Completion of both will be dependent on the commoners, as the moguls are not interested in helping, let alone seeing them completed. The first one is that of a man who refuses to kneel. An obstinate, peaceful Montanan, who stands for you and me, against whatever they throw at him. Here is a clip from the website, and link to it so you can investigate further. Warning, the website is under construction. Many parts do not work currently, but as time and money permit, more will come online. https://thementalmilitia.net/ernie/ … ernie met “the law” face to face a few years ago, during the 2008 Housing Bubble melt-down, and lost […]

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 important to them merely need […]
