Three Ways To Lower Gas Prices

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 1, 2008

After you watch the video, take action…goodness knows the Democratic Congress won’t.

1. Dump a significant amount of the Strategic Reserve on the market. Lowers prices by around $50 a bbl.

2. We have three times the amount of proven Saudi Arabian Reserves in the Rocky Mountain Shale alone. Drill Here, Drill Now.

3. Maximize usage of alternative fuels.

Democrat Party Leader Involved In Satanic Rituals

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 1, 2008

DURHAM – Allegations that a local Democratic official and her husband were involved in satanic rituals that included shackling people to beds, caging them and depriving them of food and water have horrified county party leaders.

Joy Johnson, 30, a third vice chairwoman of the Durham County Democratic Party and vice chairwoman of the Young Democrats, was charged Friday with two counts of aiding and abetting.

Her husband, Joseph Scott Craig, 25, was charged with second-degree rape, second-degree kidnapping and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon for an incident in January and another in May.

The two made an appearance in court Monday morning after spending the weekend in the Durham County jail.

Mark McCullough, an assistant district attorney, urged Judge Nancy Gordon to increase Johnson’s bail to $500,000 from the $270,000 set by a magistrate. “Part of the allegations are that satanic worship is part of this case,” McCullough said.

At least it fits…most of the local Pagans are allied with the Democrats. Don’t believe me? Just check out the local Magnolia Tree worship-fest:

And the vigil that is ongoing every afternoon.

Obama Birth Certificate Shenanigans?

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 1, 2008

The Birth Certificate supplied by Barack Obama is not a Certified Copy. More on this:

“That strongly suggests that Daily Kos obtained the image from Photobucket, not the State of Hawaii, the Obama family, or the Obama campaign. Photobucket is not generally known as a credible supplier of official vital records for any of the fifty states, and the liberties that other Photoshoppers took with the certificates confirms this.

“Some of these oddities surfaced in Israel Insider’s previous article on the subject, but new comparative documentary evidence presented below, and official verification obtained by Israel Insider from a senior Hawaiian official, provides the strongest confirmation yet.

“An authentic Hawaiian birth certificate for another Hawaiian individual has since surfaced which, using the same official form as the presumptive Obama certificate, includes an embossed official seal and an authoritative signature, coming through from the back. Obama’s alleged certificate lacks those features, and the certificate number referencing the birth year has been blacked out, making it untraceable.

”Janice Okubo, Director of Communications of the State of Hawaii Department of Health, told Israel Insider: “At this time there are no circumstances in which the State of Hawaii Department of Health would issue a birth certification or certification of live birth only electronically.” And, she added, “In the State of Hawaii all certified copies of certificates of live birth have the embossed seal and registrar signature on the back of the document.”

–==SNIP==–

Research has since uncovered the law, in force at the time of Obama’s birth, that were he to have been born in another country, his young American mother’s youth extended time abroad would not suffice to make him a “natural born citizen.” Even if he were naturalized later — and there is no evidence that he was — he would not be eligible to run for the office of president and — if forgery or misrepresentation were involved — he and his staffers might find themselves facing stiff federal and state charges.

Commentary

This could just be a case of extreme incompetence on the part of Obama’s staff. There could also be other reasons for the cover up. Obama’s out of wedlock birth could have resulted in the father’s name being left out due to uncertainty who the father was, or he could have been listed as an Arab or Muslim, or may not be listed as Barack Obama, Sr.

If Obama was born outside the USA, according to laws in effect at the time of his birth, he would not be a natural born citizen andhe would be ineligible to be President due to his mother’s extended time abroad prior to his birth.

My chief suspicion is that it may be either extreme incompetence on Obama’s staff or to cover up embarrasing information on the Birth Certificate. Just like in Nixon’s case, the cover up becomes a greater crime than any actual crimes committed.

This would also be quite revealing about the character of Barack Obama.

I also note that Hillary Clinton is technically still in the race…for those of us who were involved in situations in Arkansas in the 1980’s…we remember that the Clintons have returned from the dead before… (cue spooky music)

35 Years of a Volunteer Force

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 1, 2008

July 1, 1973 the United States Military became an all volunteer force. Gone were the days of the conscription 0r ‘The Draft’. For 35 years, through much of the Cold War, Panama, Greneda, Bosnia, Kosovo, Desert Storm, Somalia, and the Great War on Terror, every member of the military has been a volunteer. They stood up and said “Take Me.” They raised their hands to take the oath and said “I mean it.”

I remember July 1, 1973 vividly. There were many celebrations by the anti-war crowds, just as there were celebrations by the military crowds, though for quite different reasons. What started as a political victory for the anti Vietnam war crowd, has become the backbone and strength of our current military. I remember people believing that an all volunteer force would cause the disappearance of the military. What has happened has been quite different. It has created a strength of people that begins with them wanting to be where they are, united for a common goal. It has created a higher rate of re-enlistments and career soldiers.

Commentary

Well, since this was a liberal attempt to destroy the military of the United States by Liberals, it failed…as dictated by Quinn’s Fist Law:

“Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent. “

And I cannot help but notice that the Liberals have noticed their mistake, and are trying to correct that by bringing back the draft. They will, of course, fail in that effort because Americans have seen how successful an all-volunteer force is, and the high caliber of people it attracts.

I salute the young men and women who volunteer for national service, and serve our nation in the military. These men and women leave the service with a great love for our nation, and pass it along to their children, and they add so much to our communities by their fine example.

The very existence of an all volunteer force has transformed this nation into something even greater than it has been. At the end of the Battle of Viet Nam…our morale was low, and the evil forces of Socialism were on the march everywhere. We appeared to be in decline. Then, the draft was removed…and the Citizen-Soldier was reborn…like the Minute Men of Old.

Our national fortunes changed. By the time Reagan became President…he had something to work with, and he was able to win the Cold War [World War III] using the professional military force as part of his toolkit.

And now, 35 years later, our military has achieved some of the most breath-taking military victories in the history of the world, among the latest was the Desert Shield/Desert Storm Operations which liberated a nation (which is what we do best, as Americans) and were in the process of removing the dictator responsible when (like in Viet Nam) the political leadership halted the advance…and allowed evil to live to fight another day.

Now, our all volunteer force have liberated two nations (Afghanistan and Iraq), and are working on a third (the Philippines) as we fight a Global War on Terrorism (World War IV) against those Islamists who would establish a Global Caliphate, and plunge the world into a truly Dark Age.

Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few
