Ted’s essays

affiliations; community involvement

The question of the day was, “Where did all my time go?”. So I started organizing. First step in organizing is, of course, to make a list. Oh. No wonder.

I am a member of all of the below, active member of most and on the executive board of nearly half. You might notice a common thread among them. THAT is what motivates me … my life, liberty and property rights as well as yours and everybody else’s.

Some may have a less-than-stellar reputation in your mind. I know they did in mine before I looked deeper and met the people involved. I encourage you to stare your prejudices down.

Go look. I linked them to make it easy for you. Don’t automatically believe the bad press you have been fed. It just might not be accurate.

How does he do it?
Yeah, I admit this appears to be a bit over the top in the community involvement. If you compare it to a future without liberty, you’ll understand why I invest heavily now. I am unsure I’d survive the alternative. My secret tip for the day: Turn off your TV… better still, don’t have one.
