Winter Weather for Parts of WNC

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 7, 2008

**update** 03-08-2008 5.45pm. All we got was flurries. No wonder people get killed by floods and hurricanes…the forecasters are wrong so often, no one listens.


Winter Storm Warning

Winter Weather Advisory

Short term Forecast


National Weather Service

Well, the forecast is for 1 to 2 inches in the Winter Storm Watch areas, and 3 to 4 (or more) for the areas under a Winter Weather Advisory to the south of us. Seems like we’re gonna get missed again, even if it does come a good snow, I think the ground is to warm for it amount to anything even with temps due to drop to 18 degrees Saturday night…after the snow has moved out.

The John Batchelor Show is Back !!!

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 7, 2007

Yay!!!

77WABC announced today, the return of John Batchelor to the WABC lineup. John will take over the 7-10pm slot on Sunday night, which has been occupied by Brian Whitman.

Brian will continue with a variety of roles on WABC including frequent substitution assignments, and his comedy voice work for the Sean Hannity show. “Brian has worked for WABC since 1996, when he joined us on overnights at the age of 24, the youngest major market talk show host in America,” said WABC PD Phil Boyce. “Brian is a part of the WABC family and that will not change with this move,” Boyce continued. Brian is a much sought after morning show voice talent, with clients all over the country, as well as the Sean Hannity Show. Brian also will continue to host his regular weeknight show he co-hosts on KLSX-FM, the CBS owned talker in Los Angeles.

Batchelor hosted nights on WABC from the night after 9/11, till September of 2006 when his show was canceled by the ABC Radio networks. “I have wanted to find the right spot to bring John back for some time,” commented Boyce. “John’s insights into the political arena, and his fascinating take on world affairs has allowed him to build a legion of fans.” The John Batchelor Show will continue that theme, using all of John’s sources, his vast knowledge of history, and his unique take on current events.

Hat Tip: The Eyrie, who was kind enough to leave a tip in a comment thread. LIghtning Baron, I will dance at your wedding, or send a suitable video of me doing the Happy Dance in lieu of me not being able to attend!!!

Commentary

This is very good news indeed. Whenever I have been pondering current events, and how things might fit together, I often wonder, What Would John Say?
Now, with many thanks to Phil Boyce, I will not have to wonder any longer.

I also can’t wait to hear from his many sources of current information, his musical interludes, backgrounds, and mood making music selections, his in-depth interviews, and of course, Kate to sing us to sleep.

ALERT: Boy Scout Troop Missing in Haywood County

Posted by Thunder Pig on September 24, 2007


(CNN) — Eleven members of a Boy Scout troop did not emerge
from a camping area in the mountains of western North Carolina as scheduled
Sunday evening, prompting an overnight search effort, local authorities said.

The Scouts were camping in southern Haywood County, North Carolina.

The eight scouts and three adult leaders from Troop 217 in Raleigh,
North Carolina, were on a weekend camping trip in the Black Balsam Gap area near
the Blue Ridge Parkway in southern Haywood County, according to Haywood County
sheriff’s dispatcher Michael Huffman.

Their vehicles were still in the
parking lot at the entrance to the campground Sunday evening, leading
authorities to suspect the scouts simply camped out for another night, Huffman
said.

Lisa Logan, whose husband is one of the scout leaders and son is a
scout, said she has “a complete peace that they’re fine.”

Plot to explode fuel tanks at JFK Airport disrupted – Four Islamic terrorists arrrested

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 2, 2007

2 June 2007: At least 3 of 4 Muslim terrorists, one who is a former airport worker at JFK, have been arrested for plotting to blow-up fueling areas at JFK Airport in New York, potentially setting off a massive explosion at the airport and potentially crippling air travel for some time and causing a conflagration of unprecedented proportions. Although considered a “domestic terror cell” it has international dimensions as two cell members were arrested in Trinidad, one was arrested in the New York area, and one suspect is believed to be a former member of parliament or government official from Guyana.

For a “Religion of Peace,” they sure do try to commit a lot of violent acts, unlike the Knights of Columbus or the local Choir Group.

For more updates:

West Carolina Report

Drudge Report

Jihad Watch

Little Green Footballs

Gateway Pundit [He was at JFK while this broke.]

There others, but these are the ones I check first before adding data to West Carolina Report.

My big fear is that these groups will figure out that an attack against hardened targets in bigger cities offer little chance of success, and that targets in smaller cities and rural communities offer limitless possibilities, especially in schools, Rec Fields, Churches, Offices, Restaurants, and Rush Hour Traffic. Of course, many citizens in the more rural areas carry firearms, and can limit their success in areas that are not Gun-Free Zones.

A View to a Kill: The Left Supports the Thug-In-Chief Hugo Chavez

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 29, 2007

Or, How I Quit Living in Fear of Freedom of Speech, and Learned to Love Neo-Stalinism

I hope the events unfolding in Venezuela has been an awakening for people on how the Hard-Core Lefties think, and the cognitive dissonance they bathe in will lead to the horrors of tyranny every single time it is tried!

Hugo Chavez, who has been given dictatorial powers “only during the current emergency“, and an extended term in office, has assumed the worship of the American Communists once only occupied by El Presidente Fidel Castro. And, like him, he will continue to find ways to remain in power far beyond his current term expires. Sort of like Darth Vader for earthlings without the twisted false messiah ending in Episode VI of Star Wars.

The Kids at Daily KKKos support and rationalize the gutting of Free Speech in Venezuela, and I promise you, they wish they could do the same thing here in America to Fox News (a breeding ground for the hated RINOS), Conservative Talk, and the Conservative Blogosphere via “Net Neutrality.’

An excerpt from a Buzzle article:



Radio Caracas Television – the country’s “oldest and most popular” private channel – hosted an emotional farewell to viewers and depicted its imminent demise as a political watershed. “This marks a turn toward totalitarianism,” said its director, Marcel Granier.

The government ridiculed the notion and said it was exercising its legal right not to renew the concession of a channel which had “polluted” the airwaves with anti-democratic coup-mongering as well as sleazy soap operas.

“anti-democratic coup mongering as well as sleazy soap operas,” by those standards, three quarters (or more) of American Television, and virtually all of Hollywood should be at risk of being taken off the air! Most especially on the sleaze. The left have been coup-mongering, and the Democratic Duo of Pelosi & Reid backed off once they realized Americans will not stand for it. (80 million gun owners would soon correct that mistake!)

Here are some more articles on the brave souls fighting against tyranny in Venezuela, much like the Contras we helped two decades ago in Central America:

Washington Post

Venezuelanalysis

BBC

The president says the new channel that took RCTV’s place at midnight on Sunday (0400 GMT Monday) will better reflect the socialist revolution he has pledged to lead.

Never forget that socialism cannot survive when there is competition from other ideologies, and must sink to using violence to remove them. That is part of what the Fairness Doctrine is intended to set into play, to force successful conservative programs to loose part of their air-time to the socialists until a way can be found to remove them from the air.

R.I.P. America

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 23, 2007

In loving memory…

The United States of America
1775-2007

It was good while it lasted. Too bad it’s over.

Every great country must come to an end. In man’s history, the average age of a great civilization is about 200 years. America made it a bit longer, but now it’s time has come as well.

Now I don’t mean to say that overnight the place will suddenly cease to exist. However, the America that was created over 200 years ago is completely gone now. It’s been on a decline for some time, and this really is it. I remember well the celebrations of 1976 (though I was quite young) — and I would be willing to be there will be no celebration in 2076. The country has died.

I do not write this lightly, nor without great thought. I do not write this with joy or sarcasm. I write this, fervently believing that it is true, despite the rejections and declarations of many.

There were brief rays of hope that paused the decline of freedom and liberty. Ronald Reagan, from 1980-1988 worked hard and tirelessly to stop oppression and really gave hope to a lot of people. He renewed faith in America and in it’s people. But that was just an upward blip on the steady decline of the country. Under the leadership of Newt Gingrich, there was another upward tick for just a short time in 1994. This blip was smaller than the 80s, and shorter. But with the passage of global amnesty, the decline is complete. There is no hope for America.

Now I’m not saying I’m hopeless. I’m not feeling personally bad. But there is no hope for America today. America was built on a strong Christian work ethic. America was a great country once. It was built on rugged individualism — people worked hard and knew hard work would be rewarded. America was truly a shining light on a hill — a beacon of freedom around the world. America defeated Communism. America defeated Hitler and Nazi Germany when they wanted to rule the world. America had a real identity, and the whole world knew it. But that is to be no more.


Read the rest at
Ogre’s Politics & Views

My personal realization that we had lost our Republic was the lack of response to the murder of dozens of Americans at Waco [by the citizenry en masse and the other branches of government]. That was when I began digging caches. Our underwhelming response to 9/11 was another alarm. Amnesty for law-breaking Alien Invaders is just another increase in the volume of the alarm.

I still have to go through the motions of fighting this slide to a democratic tyranny for a little while longer…
