Posted by Thunder Pig on March 30, 2008

Susan Pons is running against NC Senator John Snow, and this is the speech she gave detailing why she chose to run and what she wants to accomplish.
I will let you know when she gets her website up and running.

Also, Richard Bernier of Sound Off Buncombe (a URTV show) was there, and he took a video as well:

Dodie Allen for NC House District #119

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 30, 2008

Dodie Allen is a thoroughly enjoyable person to speak with and I had an opportunity at yesterday’s Macon County GOP Convention to video her speech at the convention.

Please visit her website for more details on getting in touch with her during her campaign to replace Phil Haire in the NC House.

She wouldn’t stay in one spot for the camera, so I got out my spare camera and took a few photos of her to use as a slideshow during her speech.

Old Glory Radio Starts a Live Video Show on Friday Nights

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 30, 2008

Tom Fredriksen of Old Glory Radio has started a live call-in video show on his blog every Friday night at 9pm Eastern Time. If you thought his radio stuff was good, wait until you see his video humor.

Check it out at Old Glory Radio, progressives need not apply, and those who might be harmed by the sight (and sound) of a polar bear using motorized hair clippers will need to stay away as well.

Macon County GOP Convention Part I

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 30, 2008

I attended the Macon County GOP Convention today, and took lots of video and lots of photos. I was amazed at the spirited debate among the three Congressional candidates, and wowed by the state level candidates, who all spoke eloquently.

I also found out my video editing software doesn’t like large files. So, after three hours of processing, the hour long video of the debate was unusable. So, I am chopping the debate into You Tube sized chunks. THis is the first, then I am going to bed, and will process the rest tomorrow.
