Laura Bush Visits WNC

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 31, 2006

I stopped off at the Haywood County Public Library to put up a couple of quick pix, and will continue on to work. Around 5pm, I’ll stop off at WCUs library and add more…maybe video if I can do it without the included software for the camera.

The First Lady Stumps For Congressman Taylor

Check back for more pictures and videos tonight and tomorrow!

Okay, I’m having problems with the videos, so click here to see most of the unblurred ones…I’ve had to get rid of more than 50% due to my unfamiliarity with the HP Photosmart Camera. Apparently, it is more sensitive to slight motion when the picture is taken. I never had that problem with my Kodak, may it rest in pieces.

New Discussion Group in Asheville

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 31, 2006

Asheville Latté Republicans
The Asheville Latté Republicans Club is a brand new conservative coffee club / discussion group in Asheville, North Carolina. It is a relaxed and inclusive club for those wanting to talk about current events and politics over your caffeinated drink of choice.

The first meeting will be November 9th. Check out the website, and help this group get started.

This is only the beginning, as I expect more groups of this nature to become the norm for thinking conservatives. If the GOP is a Big Tent party, we will welcome this addition to our symphony of freedom.

Pakistanis Blow up Madrassa

This story at The Gates of Vienna reminds me that during World War Two, the first thing to be taken out by the Allies was the church tower, which was often used by German snipers.

DOD Counters MSM Lies For The Record

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 29, 2006

The Department of Defense has finally wised up, and joined the Internet Media.
Why? Because of hostile coverage by the Main Stream Legacy Media.

Here is Friday’s offering:

Rumsfeld Comments Mischaracterized

Oct. 27, 2006 — Several news outlets, including the AP and Washington Post, reported or headlined incorrectly that Secretary Rumsfeld told “critics” to “back off” during yesterday’s press briefing. In fact, the Secretary was referring specifically to journalists who were seeking to create a perception of major divisions between the positions of the U.S. and Iraqi governments. He was not referring to critics of the administration’s Iraq policy.

Read the DOD letter to the Washington Post.

Read the transcript of Secretary Rumsfeld’s press conference.

Hat Tip The Belmont Club

The more I read, the more I become convinced that The Main Stream Legacy Media is not on our side in this, or any other, fight.

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 28, 2006

Okay, I’ve had a hard time getting the imbed to work, and do not know if I am the problem (Likely), or the problem lies with Blogger (probable), or from an overloaded You Tube (possible).
So, if there are multiple posting of the imbed, irnore it, since i can’t see them.

Click here to see the video.

Perhaps I should upgrade to IE 7 or Okaymake the jump to Fire Fox.

In-State Tuition for Illegal Aliens in NC

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 28, 2006

In-State Tuition for illegal aliens issue Revisited in NC!

The Raleigh based national organization, Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, is launching an effort to warn NC citizens that Democrat leaders have recently announced their intention to attempt legislation again in 2007 that would grant in-state tuition to illegal aliens.

“North Carolinians need to know where their candidates stand on this issue,” says William Gheen of ALIPAC. “Three term Governor Jim Hunt has recently announced a new push for this measure. We know that in-state tuition is opposed by over 80% of North Carolinians and will be taking immediate action to warn the public.”

ALIPAC is launching a statewide campaign to remind the public which lawmakers supported HB 1183 in 2005. The attempted passage and subsequent defeat of this bill was one of the biggest news stories in NC in 2005. Many candidates are running on the issue in today’s elections.
