My Middle Name Is Sidney

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 30, 2008

Emily Nordling has never met a Muslim, at least not to her knowledge. But this spring, Ms. Nordling, a 19-year-old student from Fort Thomas, Ky., gave herself a new middle name on Facebook.com, mimicking her boyfriend and shocking her father.

“Emily Hussein Nordling,” her entry now reads.

With her decision, she joined a growing band of supporters of Senator Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, who are expressing solidarity with him by informally adopting his middle name.

The result is a group of unlikely-sounding Husseins: Jewish and Catholic, Hispanic and Asian and Italian-American, from Jaime Hussein Alvarez of Washington, D.C., to Kelly Hussein Crowley of Norman, Okla., to Sarah Beth Hussein Frumkin of Chicago.

Whadda buncha idiots!

Guess that backs up the observation that Republicans vote with their heads, and Dumb-o-crats vote with their hearts.

Crunching The Numbers On 527’s: Exposing Barack Obama’s Lie

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 30, 2008

To hear Barack Obama speak you’d think he is gonna be overwhelmed by a folld of Republican 527’s this fall. Methinks the guilty dog is barking first:

Before the conventions in 2004, 527’s had raised $189.1 million, with Conservative groups raising $43.8 million and Liberal groups raising $132.6 million. The Liberals out raised Conservatives 3 to 1.

Now, the 527’s have raised $207.8 million, with Conservative groups raising $68.4 million and Liberal groups raising $116.4 million. The Liberals out raised Conservatives 1.7 to 1.

I can see why Obama would be worried. If the Democrat 527’s can’t get a Democrat into the White House when they have a 3 to 1 advantage in money…they might have a problem doing it at 1.7 to 1…unless they really over work those ACORN people and increase their fraudulent voter registrations to unheard of levels.

So, when you hear Barack Obama, or any Democrat, speak of the Republican attack machine…you will be armed with figures that will show them that they have been told a lie, and are repeating it.

The Tunguska Mystery 100 Years Later

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 30, 2008

June 30, 1908, 7:14 a.m., central Siberia—Semen Semenov, a local farmer, saw “the sky split in two. Fire appeared high and wide over the forest…. From … where the fire was, came strong heat…. Then the sky shut closed, and a strong thump sounded, and I was thrown a few yards…. After that such noise came, as if . . . cannons were firing, the earth shook …”

Such is the harrowing testimony of one of the closest eyewitnesses to what scientists call the Tunguska event, the largest impact of a cosmic body to occur on the earth during modern human history. Semenov experienced a raging conflagration some 65 kilometers (40 miles) from ground zero, but the effects of the blast rippled out far into northern Europe and Central Asia as well. Some people saw massive, silvery clouds and brilliant, colored sunsets on the horizon, whereas others witnessed luminescent skies at night—Londoners, for instance, could plainly read newsprint at midnight without artificial lights. Geophysical observatories placed the source of the anomalous seismic and pressure waves they had recorded in a remote section of Siberia. The epicenter lay close to the river Podkamennaya Tunguska, an uninhabited area of swampy taiga forest that stays frozen for eight or nine months of the year.

Ever since the Tunguska event, scientists and lay enthusiasts alike have wondered what caused it. Although most observers generally accept that some kind of cosmic body, either an asteroid or a comet, exploded in the sky above Siberia, no one has yet found fragments of the object or any impact craters in the affected region. The mystery remains unsolved, but our research team, only the latest of a steady stream of investigators who have scoured the area, may be closing in on a discovery that will change our understanding of what happened that fateful morning.

Tunguska Epicenter

I have enjoyed reading about this event all my life, and especially remember the wilder claims of the conspiracy nuts that it was an alien craft that had blown up in the atmosphere, or even the speculation that it was a tiny black hole that happened to evaporate as it intersected our atmosphere.

I have always believed it to have been a piece of a comet, more specifically, the short-period comet Encke. I forget where I read that, and a quick Google Search tells me that British Astronomer Fred Whipple suggested that in 1930. I read very heavily in the area of Astronomy, so I could have read that anywhere, and tend to go with the scientific explanation where it fits Occam’s Razor.

Democratic Party Bans Southern Fried Foods From Convention

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 29, 2008

As part of the effort to make the August 25-28 convention the greenest ever, the Democrats’ guidelines for food catering include one that strikes at the heart of Southern cuisine: no fried food.

No fried chicken. No fried catfish. No fried green tomatoes. No fried okra. No fried anything.

In promoting healthy eating habits, the Democratic guidelines say every meal should be nutritious and include “at least three of the following colors: red, green, yellow, purple/blue and white.”

“It’s the new patriotism,” says Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, the driving force behind the greening of the Democratic convention.

Hat Tip: Jonah Goldberg

You know, I’m betting someone could make a lot of money by smuggling fried chicken into that convention…unless the Dems flip-flop on this issue, too.

Manure Thief Falls In Manure, Flees Scene Naked

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 28, 2008

A woman trying to make “manure bombs” using stockings, slipped into a slurry tank and fled the scene naked, German police said.

Two women entered a farm in the northern village of Eberholzen on Wednesday evening and started to fill the stockings with manure.

“One of them slipped into the manure tank, right into the cow muck,” said a spokesman for local police. “The other one helped her out. We found their clothes in a field. One seems to have run off completely naked, the other in her underwear.”

Manure Bombs? As in Water Balloon-type Bombs? Doood, that’s not cool.

Poetic justice stikes again. I’m hoping there were parasites in the manure.
