Buncombe GOP Lincoln-Reagan Day Video Courtesy Sound Off Buncombe

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 7, 2008

Sound Off Buncombe‘s Richard Bernier has released his version of the Buncombe GOP Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner, including the Senator Dole Speech from Feb 23rd. It will air on URTV soon…so get a sneak peek here!

I am thankful that we have Richard to capture some of these moments for the people who are unable to attend these events. And, hopefully, soon we will have more people available to cover these events so we don’t have to work Richard to death!

Winter Weather for Parts of WNC

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 7, 2008

**update** 03-08-2008 5.45pm. All we got was flurries. No wonder people get killed by floods and hurricanes…the forecasters are wrong so often, no one listens.

Winter Storm Warning

Winter Weather Advisory

Short term Forecast

National Weather Service

Well, the forecast is for 1 to 2 inches in the Winter Storm Watch areas, and 3 to 4 (or more) for the areas under a Winter Weather Advisory to the south of us. Seems like we’re gonna get missed again, even if it does come a good snow, I think the ground is to warm for it amount to anything even with temps due to drop to 18 degrees Saturday night…after the snow has moved out.

Yay! Ron Paul is FINALLY Dropping Out!

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 7, 2008

It is no secret to the readers of this blog that I share many of the same political views with Ron Paul. His view that precluded my support for his campaign was his idiotic opposition to the USA taking a forward posture in the prosecution of World War IV.
Here is the announcement:

Here is my response:

Seriously, though, I look forward to working with elements of the Ron Paul campaign that chose to stay in the Republican Party on items on mutual benefit. Goodness knows, it’s not like they’ll be able to agree with one another long enough to form a viable third party. I hope most of them stay in the Republican Party because the creation of a third party around the remnants of the Ron Paul Revolution would be a danger to the GOP.

The Peace Movement Turns Violent, Again

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 7, 2008

The Peace Movement is many things, but it has never been about peace.
As many of us suspected, the Domestic Terrorist who bombed the Marine Recruiting Station in Times Square was NOT an al-Qaeda-type.
Before the attack, letters and photos were mailed to at least 8 Democrats in the US House of Representatives. The photos were of the Marine Recruiting Station.

Hat Tip: Sister Toldjah

The bomb itself was a crude device in a surplus ammo box, and surveillance cameras captured the scene, and a suspect on video:

The Jay Mundy Show asks, “Was An Anti-War Liberal Behind The Times Square Bombing?

So, it appears that the increasingly violent anti-war movement may be about to cross a line that they can not turn back from once crossed…they will have gone from psychological violence and psychological terrorism to physical violence and terrorism proper, just like in the 60’s and 70’s.

Oh, and have I mentioned that Progressive Democrat Presidential Candidate Barack Obama is friends with a terrorist from the 60’s and 70’s?
