June 24th on Blog Talk Radio

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 24, 2008

Here is my way to avoid posting 5 or 6 radio shows everyday on the blog, and run the risk of burning out, or worse yet, overlooking some shows when things get hectic. so, if you are a BTR host, and you wonder why I only embed your show occaisionally, it is because I forget. I still listen via the RSS Feed due to internet issues at night from home. My neighbors all give me a hard time because I got them all to switch to DSL, and now…we all go dark at 6pm every night, and teh intertubes don’t come back until 2am. They will be burning down the local Verizon Office right after they burn my house down (with me still in it).

11:00AM

First up, we have Fausta’s Blog. I accidentally posted it yesterday because I didn’t know what day it was yesterday. Today’s show is billed as The Return of the All Stars:

Chat Room

Her blog

7:00PM

Snooper is scheduled to be on American Truth Warriors tonight, and his description is a stream-of conciousness thing that goes like this: Sound bytes, idiot politicians, the Smith Act, treason, sedition, subversion. Sounds like it will be another winner:

Chat Room

A Newt One

8:00 PM

Patriot Action with Matt and Wyatt is next up. These guys discuss the news and issues of the day from a conservative point of view:

Chat Room

Matt’s Website

Wyatt’s You Tube channel

9:00 PM

Andrea Shea King is next up at bat, and this evening’s show will be about The steady and inexorable encroachment of socialism in our government, and the expectation of the citizenry that abets it. Tonight we take a close look at the proof:

Chat Room

Radio Patriot

10:00 PM

Doug has an appropriate title for his show, “The Show Must Go On” and his show notes give us a clue about the topics he plans on covering…What happened to silence my show and blog?, as well as “Return of the Censors – How the Canadian Human Rights Commission has placed Mark Steyn, and the Freedom of the Press, on trial:

Chat Room

Political Pistachio

11:00 PM

And to end the day is Josh Allem, clean-up hitter who is a very astute political observer. He offers great commentary and wonderful insight on today’s political situation:

Chat Room

Josh’s Blog

So that is the roundup of shows I normally put on my MP3 player and listen to while doing other stuff. I just wish that I could participate in the chat rooms more often, there are some great people in them!

Barack Obama: The Candidate of Change

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 24, 2008

We keep hearing that Barack Obama is the candidate of change, that he is clear and consistent in his leadership and in his message. But what does that mean? A look at a few of the positions and counter positions the Junior Senator from Illinois has taken in the course of his four short years from a candidate for the United States Senate to a candidate for the Presidency:

The Return of Political Pistachio

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 24, 2008

My internet service was down last night (Thank You, Verizon DSL), so I couldn’t embed or listen to Doug’s return to radio last night, so I’ll post the podcast today instead.

Yesterday, I found out why Doug hadn’t been on the air. The brief recap is that he had reason to believe that his family would be in danger if he kept on broadcasting and blogging, so he stopped.

Last night, he returned to the airwaves (or intertubes) in his regular slot as Monday night co-host on The Andrea Shea King Show:


You can read his post about the situation.

And I couldn’t resist adding Josh Allem’s Return as well:

Here are blogs for more info:

Doug blogs at:
Political Pistachio

Andrea Shea King blogs at:
Radio Patriot

This is just another example of Quinn’s First Law in action:

Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent.

The lefties that targeted Doug and his family had no idea that they would stiffen Doug’s resolve, or that other people come forth to stand with Doug. I know that I would have been unlikely to start a series of posts on The Homosexual Agenda, or why Gay Marriage is not a good thing.

I am also going to have to find a better way of promoting these Blog Talk Radio Shows, because if I embedded the shows i liked…this blog would be featuring 5 or 6 shows a day. Perhaps I can start an …on BTR Today post that has all the BTR Shows for the day that I like to download and listen to later. My primary source for these shows is my RSS Reader, so I listen to them a day od so, or more, after they have aired. Especially the night shows. My internet connection isn’t the greatest, and I am usually in bed by 8pm every night unless something is going on in the sky.
