Please check out the show if you are still awake.. est-12:00 We have representatives who say they are conservative, but vote for every liberal/socialistic idea proposed. Is there still room for a conservative in the GOP? We will have a guest join us he is informative on Alaska politics and most issues that are associated with Republicans. Join us, we pose some questions to the Alaska Republican Party Chairman-Randy Ruedrich. How is Republican defined in the eyes of Alaskans? Is it helpfulwe have a governor who demonstrates everything opposite of being a Republican? Should a conservative think twice about running for office in Alaska?

Michael Yon Returning To Action

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 10, 2008

Citizen Journalist Michael Yon is heading back to cover the war:

I have left the United States and am heading back to the war.

Heavy promotion of Moment of Truth in Iraq is over. I conducted approximately 100 radio, television, magazine and newspaper interviews, therefore was unable to do much more than track the war from afar. There are more radio interviews scheduled, but I’ll be talking from downrange. Moment of Truth in Iraq hit #6 on the Amazon bestseller list, and #2 on Barnes and Noble, which greatly surprised me.

Michael Moore has stopped the copyright infringement on my work, but his attorney has not responded to my attorney’s requests to negotiate a settlement. Out of courtesy, we’ll give Mr. Moore a little more time. But if he refuses to afford us the professional consideration of returning communications, we’ll have to file a lawsuit and meet them in court.

Godspeed, Michael. And I sincerely hope that you sue the pants off Michael Moore.

Celebrating Nikwasi 2008

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 20, 2008

I hope I witnessed the beginning of an annual event in Franklin this past Saturday.

The designation of the Nikwasi mound as a Cherokee Heritage Trail is an important step toward preserving this important historical site for future generations of Maconians, Cherokee, and passerby to enjoy and ponder the past.

I took a great many photos, some of which can be found in this previous post where I embedded a Slide Show, and an excellent adjunct can be found at Ruminations From the Distant Hills.

Here is the promised video of my witness of the events on Saturday. I missed the Story Tellers and most of the Gospel Singing because I was in line waiting on food…maybe I can catch them next year.

The video took over 2 hours to mixdown on my machine, and it has been processing at for over an hour. Click the link above to view it on the show page. I’ll edit this post to include the embed once it has finished transcoding to .flv format.

The video is just under an hour and 38 minutes.

Blog Talk Radio: Katcha KLOO with Syrin

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 18, 2008

This is a delightfully entertaining show I have found on Blog Talk Radio that focuses mostly on Alaskan issues. Even if you are not from Alaska, give it a try.

The show is at midnight Saturday, and Syrin, the host, plans to discuss energy.

This episode’s chatroom.
Syrin’s BTR Homepage

Remember that you don’t have to listen to the show live…you can use the RSS Button to subscribe to the show, and download it from your RSS Reader and listen at your leisure, that’s what I do. I listen while working around the house on the weekends…especially since many of the good shows are on after my early bedtime.
