Heavy Hundred 2008

Posted by Thunder Pig on February 13, 2008


It should be no surprise that Rush and Sean are still 1 and 2, and conservatives dominate the top tiers of the list. Two of the most popular liberal hosts on the list lost ground in the ratings compared to last year. North Dakota-based Ed Schultz dropped from fifth to eighth. Air America Radio’s Randi Rhodes plummeted from 13th to 40th place.

It should be no surprise at all that conservatism dominates in talk radio because conservatism is focused on freeing the potential of people and liberalism, or more precisely, progressivism, is devoted to limiting and controlling people’s behavior.

Cool!
Maybe I’ll get to video one of the local SCV re-enactments this summer, of our own civil war.

John McCain IS A Natural Born Citizen

Posted by Thunder Pig on February 13, 2008

I have followed many Ron Paul Forums, and even the thinly disguised GOP Tea Party website, noting many misconceptions about this country’s election process.

Let me kill a misconception about John McCain’s eligibility to become President of the United States.

He is eligible by virtue of the US Constitution and US Law. These idiots who support Ron Paul really have no clue what it says in the Constitution, no clue at all.

They also have no clue that the primary is over. Retards. Here’s your sign:

I’ll also bet they don’t know that Barry Goldwater and George Romney were born outside the US when they ran for President. I seem to remember that many of them hold Goldwater as a hero.

Obama’s Global Tax

Posted by Thunder Pig on February 13, 2008

Count this guy (Obama) as another who would be for the establishment of a Global Government:

A nice-sounding bill called the “Global Poverty Act,” sponsored by Democratic presidential candidate and Senator Barack Obama, is up for a Senate vote on Thursday and could result in the imposition of a global tax on the United States. The bill, which has the support of many liberal religious groups, makes levels of U.S. foreign aid spending subservient to the dictates of the United Nations.

Senator Joe Biden, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has not endorsed either Senator Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton in the presidential race. But on Thursday, February 14, he is trying to rush Obama’s “Global Poverty Act” (S.2433) through his committee. The legislation would commit the U.S. to spending 0.7 percent of gross national product on foreign aid, which amounts to a phenomenal 13-year total of $845 billion over and above what the U.S. already spends.

The bill, which is item number four on the committee’s business meeting agenda, passed the House by a voice vote last year because most members didn’t realize what was in it. Congressional sponsors have been careful not to calculate the amount of foreign aid spending that it would require. According to the website of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, no hearings have been held on the Obama bill in that body.

A release from the Obama Senate office about the bill declares, “In 2000, the U.S. joined more than 180 countries at the United Nations Millennium Summit and vowed to reduce global poverty by 2015. We are halfway towards this deadline, and it is time the United States makes it a priority of our foreign policy to meet this goal and help those who are struggling day to day.”

The legislation itself requires the President “to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to further the United States foreign policy objective of promoting the reduction of global poverty, the elimination of extreme global poverty, and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goal of reducing by one-half the proportion of people worldwide, between 1990 and 2015, who live on less than $1 per day.”

The bill defines the term “Millennium Development Goals” as the goals set out in the United Nations Millennium Declaration, General Assembly Resolution 55/2 (2000).

The U.N. says that “The commitment to provide 0.7% of gross national product (GNP) as official development assistance was first made 35 years ago in a General Assembly resolution, but it has been reaffirmed repeatedly over the years, including at the 2002 global Financing for Development conference in Monterrey, Mexico. However, in 2004, total aid from the industrialized countries totaled just $78.6 billion—or about 0.25% of their collective GNP.”

Source: News With Views

With the 2007 GDP figure of $13.86 trillion ($13,860,000,000,000) that means our contribution would be in the neighborhood of $98 billion or so…

What have we learned from the $6 trillion plus we have already poured down the rat-hole of entitlement programs in the “War on Poverty”, which we have not won, nor ever shall.

God Save Us from these idiots!

Waging War On The Bureaucracy

Posted by Thunder Pig on February 13, 2008

This is something I believe very passionately in, we must start destroying the entrenched bureaucrats in every level of government service.

Newt has in mind a long march of our own through the institutions.

One last thing I have noticed…Huckabee and Clinton seem to win in the same geographic regions, and Obama and McCain seem to win the same general geographic regions…to whit, these maps below:


Washington Post


Washington Post

Hillary and Huckabee take the western-most counties, and Obama and MCain take the eastern-most counties, setting up a rural vs. urban and suburban thing. Something to keep in mind for this fall.

If the reports are true…celebrations are in order:

Read more about the Islamic Terrorist at Israel Matzav.

May one of the most unpleasant regions of the Lake of Fire be reserved for this terrorist after judgment day.

If it is so, I propose a celebration every year on the anniversary of his death.
