WNC Citizens Blog is up and running

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 29, 2005

It finally rained at work yesterday. I was able to go to the public library and create the http://wnccb.blogspot.com WNC Citizens Blog and put some links up. I goofed up the e-mail to Don, who is active in the Weaverville, NC resolution to render the SCOTUS Kelo v New London amendment to the 5th Amendment. I messed up the links I included in the message, and had to call him by phone to give him the corrections. : (

I’ve also solicited assistance from people in the Blogosphere, since I am very new to blogging, and still in a steep learning curve ( At times I sympathise with Sisyphus! ), and appreciate any ideas.

Now is the time to act on the eminent domain while it is still fresh in people’s minds.

Ooops! Link doesn’t work!

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 28, 2005

Try this instead:

http://straylight.law.cornell.edu/

Then search for Keo v New London.

The address works when I type it in my address bar, but NOT when I link .

Can anyone tell me why??? Besides me being stupid, that is.

Links to Kelo v New London Decision

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 28, 2005

I have spent the weekend studying the recent above mentioned case, and my head hurts from all the legalese. If I ever bacame dictator or emporer, lawyers would be the first to go, then legalese, plain language would be the language of the court.

The opinions are much easier to read and here are the links to them:

Syllabus of case and links to Opinion,Concurrence, and the Dissents
http://straylight.law.cornell.edu/supct/html/04-108.ZS.html–What can be done about it? IMHO…Not very much. On the local level, people have to become citizen activists and through voter pressure, force their local governments to pass ordinances making it illegal to use the supreme court decision to wipe out the public use clause of the 5th amendment.

_Other than that? The House of Representatives must begin the impeachment process of the offending justices, or Congress make law regarding this decision and declare it outside the jurisdction of the court. FAT CHANCE.

IMPEACH THEM ! ! !

Stevens Kennedy Souter Ginsburg Breyer


I Doubt anything will be done beyond a few local ordinances. Please, please, please prove me wrong on that assessment of the American People. I do know that this ruling will result in bloodshed as desperate people are forced off their land.

Is the American Dream Dying?

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 24, 2005

About noon yesterday, the news began breaking. the Supreme Court Of The United States (SCOTUS) vastly altered the meaning of eminient dominion, I mean domain. Now local governments have been given permission to ‘supersize’ their feeding trough, I mean property taxes.

Posted here, for both my readers, are some contact numbers to let gummit officials know you are ‘displeased’ with this ruling by SCOTUS. Reference the Kelo v New London case.

202-456-1111 White House Comment Line

202-456-1414 White House Switch Board

828-251-1988 Representative Charles Taylor Asheville Office

828-350-2437 Senator Richard Burr ASheville Office


That’s all for now, I gotta get ready for work.

Even a dog can be grateful

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 17, 2005

Here is a nice story and photo on http://headsupamerica.com where a dog thanks a firefighter for saving her life.

Ughh! That was tiny! Tuesdays’ Head Up America has given me a lot of food for thought about how the United Nations is using local government to negate their rejection at a federal level. More details at http://www.americanpolicy.org . Another show on at 3pm on an different station, http://www.themattcave.com is called “Take A Stand With Matt Mittan focuses on local and state issues has given me a idea about combining the two themes into a website that is a resource for people who want to combat the UN Agenda 21.

I will look into that next week, when my employer goes to New Jersey for the last half of the week. I get to be off work in clear weather! WooHoo!!!

UN uses mayors to end-run the Congress and Presient?

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 15, 2005

Yesterday was a Good Day. I got a lot done clearing land and was able to listen to the radio all day. Ken Bagwells’ show, “Heads Up America” had as a guest a fellow named Tom Deweese of the American Policy Center. He told about the United Nations’ use of Mayors to get around the Congree and President by having them to enact the Rio Summit and Kyoto Protocols on a local level. More on that in later posts. I believe I now have a mission.

That is why this post is being written now instead of two hours ago, I spent a little time downloading articles relating to this field of endeavour. Even at 28.8 k, it’s still going to be a lot of reading. Gotta run.

Sleeper Cell in California

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 10, 2005

Another sleeper cell has been uncovered in California. I wonder why the media just don’t get it. Every Muslim that I have ever met and talked to at length has subscribed to outlandish conspiracy theories before and after 9-11. I know other people who aren’t Muslim who subscribe to them as well, but not as universally as the Muslims. There is also the Islamic practice of Taqqiyah (spelling uncertain) that says it is okay to disimulate or lie to unbelievers. So, even if Muslims say they don’t believe in terrorism as a legit tactic, how can we believe they are telling the truth?

I have noticed that people can’t leave comments unless they are bloggers, I will try to get that changed over the weekend, I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

Rainy Afternoons

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 9, 2005

This summer pattern of afternoon rain is okay, if it rains instead of just sprinkles. Tuesday, we got rained out at four-thirty with a good downpour, complete with lightning. Yesterday, just sprinkles, with one good 90 second teaser downpour. Enough to make us miserable when the sun returned.

Free advice: Never, never, never buy a used trailer and moove it somewhere else!!! trust me, it’s just too much trouble. But if you do, please hire a professional who has done it for years.

Maybe this week won’t be a rain out

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 6, 2005

Last week, Ionly worked Tuesday and Saturday due to the persistent passing showers of rain, which would’ve been fine if I was living in my own place where I could relax. Enough of my whining. The weather forecasts all agree, mornings look good, afternoons chancy. I’ll take that and run. I have no deep thoughts for today, but the future looks well. I am working on some essay-type posts that I’ll put out beginning next week. The kick that the legacy media is on concerning the Qu’ran abuse is disturbibg to me….
