Video: Elaine Lite Hearts George McGovern!!!

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 25, 2007

Find more videos like this on AshVid.Net

I nearly fell out of my chair when I heard Elaine Lite speak lovingly of the “Defeated in a Landslide” Defeatocrat George McGovern!! I guess these people never learn.

This video could be more dangerous to her candidacy than the world-famous Carolina Stomper video of her dancing around a Magnolia tree, which I have taken the opportunity to embed below for the shear joy of it!

Indian Casinos A Bigger Gamble Than You Think

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 25, 2007

Gary Hoffman was a millionaire, and then he wasn’t. Hoffman hit a jackpot worth over $1.5 million in a New Mexico casino on an Indian reservation, and received all sorts of congratulatory salutations on the casino floor. Once he made it to the executive conference room of the Sandia Casino, however, the tone changed from celebration to intimidation:

Hoffman, a retired Albuquerque city employee, was playing a “Mystical Mermaid” slot machine on the morning of Aug. 16, 2006, when he thought he hit it big.

The nickel slot said he’d won $1,597,244.10. Patrons and casino employees came to congratulate him. He even got a marriage proposal, Hoffman said. But, soon he was asked to come to an executive conference room, where he says he was told the casino refused to pay.

A casino employee “became quite intimidating with me, pointed his finger in my face and said, ‘You didn’t win. We’re not paying you any money. Do you understand what I’m telling you? You’re not getting any money,'” Hoffman said.

The tribe claims the slot machine malfunctioned. It insists that the machine had a maximum payout of $2500, while Hoffman insists that it had a bonus play option which allowed for much higher winnings. The picture that Hoffman took shows a very precise number that the machine displayed of the jackpot, which indicates that the machine had routines that allowed for seven-digit jackpots — and the machine’s manufacturer insists that the machine cannot malfunction in the way the casino asserts.

Worth Reading– The American Covenant by Longstreet

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 25, 2007

The American Covenant
by Longstreet

It is said the USA has more of it’s citizens incarcerated, imprisoned, than any other nation on earth.

I heard this the other night on TV. I wondered what reaction the person making the statement hoped to elicit from me, and others, who heard it.

My own reaction was… so what?

I mean, only a person having no understanding of the foundation of this country could be surprised by such a fact.

Now… for those of you who still think that is an awful thing to say about a nation… hold on a minute!

Consider the US is a nation founded on laws, on a written constitution, and a code of laws founded on that constitution, Olde English Common Law, the laws of the Judeo-Christian religion, commonly known as the Ten Commandments, and a few other lesser known codes of laws. The US is a “nation of laws”.

Now, here is the “kicker”! Citizens of the US are free people… so long as they/we remain within the boundaries proscribed by the laws, which are made by their/our fellow citizens who have been vested with the power to create those laws.

America asks very little of her citizens. All she asks is that they/we obey the law(s) made by the citizens of the country.

If a US citizens, or anyone residing within the US decides, for whatever reason, to live outside those laws, or to ignore, or in any other way, break those laws, then the wrath of their fellow citizens, the people of the 50 states as a whole, will come down on them like a ton of bricks! And in a system such as ours… that is a good thing.
