Illegal Sign

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 2, 2008

I think these signs are so stupid, and violate (if obeyed) my 2nd Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
How do they know if you are carrying if they do not search everyone who enters?

Hillary Clinton: A History of Lies

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 2, 2008

The now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, who supervised Hillary when she worked on the Watergate investigation, says Hillary’s history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther – and goes much deeper – than anyone realizes.

Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation – one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career.


“Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said in an interview last week. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

How could a 27-year-old House staff member do all that? She couldn’t do it by herself, but Zeifman said she was one of several individuals – including Marshall, special counsel John Doar and senior associate special counsel (and future Clinton White House Counsel) Bernard Nussbaum – who engaged in a seemingly implausible scheme to deny Richard Nixon the right to counsel during the investigation.

Does this surprise anyone? Hillary Clinton is a liar. Bill Clinton is a liar [1] [2] [3]. Barack Obama is a liar [1] [2] [3].

Fred Smith Rally in Beaufort

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 2, 2008

Fred Smith held a rally in Beaufort, and a member of the New Media was there to capture the action:

COUNTY NC NEWS — Yesterday on a dreary Monday evening, more than eighty citizens gathered at the Washington High School in the City of Washington, located in Beaufort County, North Carolina, to attend Senator Fred Smith’s campaign rally in support of his candidacy for Governor 2008. Lee Greenwood, a close friend and supporter of Smith, preformed flawlessly ending the evening event by singing, “God Bless America” with the entire audience. Greenwood is also the official spokesperson for Operation Never Forgotten (ONF), and travels extensively in Iraq and Kuwait entertaining and supporting our Troops deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom.
