Glenn Reynolds I ain’t.

I will be so happy when my place is repaired and I can live like normal people again. This boarding house thing really, really sucks. Unless I use a public terminal, my internet access is limited to when everyone else is asleep…forget about extra phonelines or satellite dishes, as they are forbidden. Oh, and did I mention that cell phones won’t work until you travel two miles down the road.
Sorry for the rant, had to get that off my chest…at least I convinced the owners that a computer won’t cause the place to catch on fire. 😉

An interesting post…

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 30, 2006

A local blogger has an interesting post that is very well thought out and has handy links. The post concerns Arcata, California and the newly minted Sandy Springs, Georgia. Keep an eye on these two experiments in local government. And thanks to Tim Peck for noticing and caring enough to write about it.

Monday’s Winds of War: 30 Jan 2006
by WoW Team Monday at January 30, 2006 05:47 AM

Welcome! Our goal at Winds of Change.NET is to give you one power-packed briefing of insights, news and trends from the global War on Terror that leaves you stimulated, informed, and occasionally amused every Monday & Thursday. Monday’s Winds of War briefings are given by Peace Like a River and Security Watchtower…Grab a cup of Joe and read the rest.

Have you ever wondered what the neocons are up to? Go here for a taste of what some people are thinking. Full Disclosure: Since I used to be a member of the Democrat Party, and liberal, I am considered a Neoconservative. My views on this Fourth World War we are engaged in lead me to believe that the Bush 43 administration aren’t warlike enough for my taste. Remember, I think Ghengis (hard g, Mr. Kerry) Khan is to the left of me. ;-p

I send out my prayers to the ABC co-anchor, his cameraman; and their family and friends. These guys aren’t afraid to leave the green zone, and should be respected for their efforts to cover the story of the Iraqi Theater of WWIV.

Battlestar Galactica episode "Black Market"

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 29, 2006

No content spoilers, psychological spoilers only.

I hope this was an aberration. My personal nickname for this episode is “Saigon on a Freighter” and just, well, I dunno. Threw me for such a loop I forgot to continue recording after the 2nd commercial break. The deleted scenes for this episode better show an editing problem of biblical proportions. Too much new material to absorb at once, I guess I’ll have to record again Monday night and watch it a few times.

Note to Ron Moore:

Please don’t pull a “V”-style Elizardbeth with the hybrid Homo sapiens cylonensis. Please, man. I am begging you. Don’t go there.

A Question for The Legacy Media

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 28, 2006

Imagine these guys were Americans celebrating an election win.

Would the Legacy Media approach their coverage the same way?

Hamas wins elections?

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 26, 2006

I guess the old adage that says the Palestinians don’t miss an opportunity to mess up IS true.
I hope this finally beats it into some thick skulls in the Israeli electorate that the Palestinians are so driven by hate that they have forfeited any right (if they ever had any) to be regarded as rational people.
I heard the news from the BBC this morning, but didn’t give any credence to it because of the Beeb’s bias against Israel. Later, as I checked out the Top Stories on FOX, I saw a promo for the rebroadcast of Cavuto talking about a Hamas win. What? Has the world gone mad?
In my opinion, this makes war virtually inevitable. Whether it is a low-intensity conflict or a full-blown affair remains to be seen.

The one bright spot in this whole thing is I believe it improves the chances of Bibi Netanyahu being elected to the office of Prime Minister this spring.
Oh, and one more thing, maybe this will bring the stupid, misguided policy of the Bush 43 administration of trading land for peace to an end. It is folly of the highest order to assume that Palestinians, or their allies, are capable of being faithful to any agreement.
Pray for Israel, her people and her leaders, as well as our own. I see Dark Days ahead.
The Jerusalem Post has a story. I am sure the Blogosphere is inundated with similar stories and misgivings about the future.

I don’t even have to check out The Gates of Vienna to know that an insightful analysis is soon to be, if not already, posted.
Another two sites to check are The Belmont Club and the Winds of Change. While I don’t always agree with some of the crew at Winds, I am assured that they have thought things through from their point of view.

Strike Three for the Unfit Nations

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 25, 2006

What? A Scandal at the UN involving money?
The boys in Powder Blue ran away while people were being killed?

Wretchard has the details.
I just wish i could meet someone who works for the UN face-to-face, just one time, I’d laugh at him/her/it until it hurt.
I find myself beginning to believe they are far more dangerous to us than all our oher enemies because they provide shelter for them.

I guess the prefix their acronym spells out was a Freudian slip after all, at least The League of Nations had a ring to it, even if they were just as an incompetent bunch of boobs as the current bunch.

Why did Canada vote Conservative?

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 24, 2006

Because they didn’t want our liberals moving there!

Since I didn’t work yesterday (it was raining), I was fortunate enough to be ensconced in Hunter Library at WCU all day.
I got to hear the last few minutes of Ken Bagwell before 9 am on WZNNWZGM.

Later, I listened to a little Rush and then Take A Stand with Matt Mittan. Visited my very first Chat Room also during the show. It was different, hearing the host on the radio and seeing his words typed on the screen as he carried on conversations with the “Cave Dwellers”. Found out wb means welcome back. 😉
I had to google chat room abbreviations and print them out to get a better grip on what was happening.
It’s too bad I’ll be listening at work, OUTSIDE, and unable to see what’s happening in the Cave. And Yes, What happens in the Cave, Stays in the Cave.
You can visit Matt’s website here, and as a friendly warning: DO NOT PLAY THE PENGUIN GAME !!!
It is addictive and my best score is 298.4 Matt’s is 324 or so…But we don’t really know that do we? I think that is one reason he hasn’t put his site up sooner, He wanted to boost his Penguin score to a number virtually impossible to reach. And since I can’t play it very well on a 28k connect speed, I’ll never beat him. (sniff)
