Independence Day

Renaming it “4th of July” is not merely laziness. Of course it is the 4th on your calendar, but it is a celebration representing some brave fighters’ Declaration of Independence from a powerful parasitic class of people who had demonstrated a monopoly on violence and oppression. They won a round. The ruling elite had to reorganize. It took a hundred years and another major military war that the freedom fighters lost… not by much, mind you, but they did lose. I just ask you today to spend a little time thinking about independence from oppression, the risks those rebels took and the benefits they won for many subsequent generations. Consider also who is threatened by such thinking and why their […]

Our Rights

By Eric Peters     What are our “rights” – and where do they come from? This is the question which answers all the others. The Bill of Rights, it is said, grants our rights. This is a horrible and dangerous idea; one all too many Americans have been bamboozled into believing. Anything which is granted can also be taken away – which of course is just what’s happened and precisely why it was so important to convince Americans that their rights are granted  . . . in order to get them to accept their being taken away. In fact, the Bill was written specifically as a statement of fact, intended to acknowledge our inviolable rights. To put a finer […]

painting with pastels

It is official I am an artist You can plainly see I now have my Artistic License I came by it honestly Made it myself ———— I have long been wanting to do more drawing and painting than will fit in the little squares of my wall calendar with Sharpie pens. I never quite get around to it. Years ago I inherited some water color tools from my Step Dad. Even that did not get me started. So I signed up for the Pastel Painting class the Bitterroot College offered this January/February. THAT WORKED. I did a lot of gearing up for a type of painting I had not considered, but it turns out I really like the medium. […]

19 / 25ths compared to 15 / 16ths

Bonkers title, I know. Bear with me a moment. Popular professional behaviorists and physiologists figure the male brain to be fully developed by the time they reach 25 or 30 years old; Females at 15 to 16 years old. That fits with the real world I have experienced in near 70 years. Can I say, “Lots of examples?” I was a late developer, probably leaning more towards the 30 in physical brain development, but nearly double that before I slowed down enough to apply my mental capacities to actually contemplating my world. At 20, a 21-year-old woman figured I was her ticket to the little cottage with white picket fence and a handful of children. I was an easy target. […]

connected with the cosmos

I have published several articles here regarding the function of the hair growing out of our heads (search this site for “hair”). There is more to it than most understand. History is replete with examples of warriors losing powers when shorn, or retaining inexplicable senses with their long hair. We long-hairs cannot quantify differences nor can short-hairs know what they are missing. A few days ago one of those unaccountable things happened to me. I felt an urgent need to take both dogs for an off-leash walk up the road; something I NEVER DO. I tried to rationalize the urge away, but then let it take me to the far side of the road (because the off-leash dogs went there) […]

figuring people out

We tend to consider people in our immediate world through the lense of who we are, what we feel and how we act. Surely everybody is kind-of like we are. Sometimes, however, you find yourself dealing with someone who just isn’t doing what you expect, or reacting in ways that don’t make sense to you. That is probably time to consider they really are not so much like you are. Here is a little review of what psychologists today call “Antisocial Personality Disorder – APD.” ——————————————– Both sociopaths and psychopaths have a pervasive pattern of disregard for the safety and rights of others. Deceit and manipulation are central features to both types of personality. Contrary to popular belief, a psychopath […]

shell people

A granddaughter moved in with us after failing to thrive in The Big City. We were close to her Mom’s last hope. It was going well, we thought, but were recently smacked upside the head that our great little community and wonderful resources were not enough. We involved adults were of the same mind, landing like a ton of bricks on this ungrateful truant. The girl’s world was shrinking and tightening incrementally as previous sanctions failed to deliver desired results. In retrospect: If what you are doing is not working, “do more of it” is not really the greatest plan. But that is where we were headed. Until a couple of wonderful Darby resources turned a light bulb on in […]

book publishing industry

Books were determined to be crucial in shaping opinions of cultures. Consolidation, control and guiding of the industry became a key part of the long-term molding for The New World Order. Their success is amazing. Give this video a few minutes. It quickly became enthralling to me. The book initiative is a foundation for their desired culture shift, but the efforts to control thoughts and feelings of the non-book reading masses goes much farther and deeper than most of us can imagine. The video below gives us a tour down that rabbit hole. The synchronization of our information is much worse than coincidental. The future if they get their way is ugly. They recognize the Internet threat to total control […]

the thinking behind the apparent insanity

American Partisan published an excellent article by one of my favorite authors, Matt Bracken. His excellent books including Enemies Foreign And Domestic, Castigo Cay, and several other really good ones I have read. He has great expertise in the cultural, sociological and warfare aspects of which he writes. Today I found his American Partisan article adalyzing why the Covington Catholic school boys were badgered by a crowd, how the media turned the incident upside down, the subsequent outing of lamestream’s duplicity and, most importantly, what that means to us today. I encourage you to pursue the link I placed in the headline and read the whole article. – Ted “Bracken: Covington Gives a Glimpse of Civil War Two … […]

the crazy ones

the misfits from Ted Dunlap on Vimeo. Interestingly, when you are the underdog, establishment, habit, tradition, dominance are enemies. Your work is to push people into fresh thinking. Apple has strayed a long ways from that mode in the last decade. They probably became big and strong by selling their souls, but that is just conjecture based on experience. Weigh it yourself. Nevertheless, advertising created when they were serious underdogs was often pretty good stuff. The video above is a fine example. The chart to the right shows we are not alone. Not popular, for sure, but not alone.
