HuffPo Falls Victim To Operation C.H.A.O.S.

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 9, 2008


The mainstream media might try like hell to avoid mentioning the OBVIOUS effect of Rush Limbaugh’s Operation Chaos on prolonging the Democrat primary but the HUffington Post HUffies sure know who to blame. Come to think of it, both John Kerry and the Obama campaign have credited Operation Chaos with giving Hillary her slim win in Indiana. Of course, some people like Pied Piper Pitt think an extended and bloody Democrat primary is a BLESSING but that observation can be chalked up to both grandstanding and an excess of Bukowski’s brew. The HUffies themselves are somewhat more rational than the Pittster in assessing the DEVASTING effect of Operation Chaos upon the Democrat party as you can see in the comments section of this HUffie STORY titled, “Rush Limbaugh Now ‘Backs’ Obama.” So let us now join the HUffies in full fury at Operation Chaos in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting that Hillary STILL continues rising from the dead like Michael Myers, is in the [brackets]:

This piece of human waste should be locked up for interfering with elections.

[Will he be locked up in the same cell as KOmmie KOs who suggested Democrats should cross over to vote for Romney in the Michigan primary?]

I cannot believe so many people listen to this narcissistic, egotistical gas-bag. It is my sincere hope that Rush will fade into obscurity once Obama wins the Presidency in November.

[If that happens the Democrats will bring back the “Fairness Doctrine” also known as the “Hush Rush” bill.]

I think it is time to fire up the genesis of Operation C.H.A.O.S. for old times sake (this is a two video playlist…give the second a little time to load:

Holy Flying Logos, Batman!!!

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 7, 2008

Lexington, Ala. – Picture the Manhattan skyline filled with Nike swooshes. Or the golden arches of McDonald’s gently drifting over Los Angeles.

A special-effects entrepreneur from Alabama has come up with a way to fill the sky with foamy clouds as big as 4 feet across and shaped like corporate logos — Flogos, as he calls them.

Francisco Guerra, who’s also a former magician, developed a machine that produces tiny bubbles filled with air and a little helium, forms the foam into shapes and pumps them into the sky.

The Walt Disney Co. will use one of the machines next month to send clouds shaped like Mickey Mouse heads into the air at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., Guerra said.

“It’s a shock factor when you look up and there’s a logo over your head,” said Guerra, whose company, Snowmasters Inc., makes machines that churn out fake snow and foam for Hollywood movies and special events.

He developed Flogos at his small factory in northern Alabama — a perfect place for research and development, he said, partly because there aren’t many people around to ask questions about the foam shapes that float above the building on test days.

And, wouldn’t you know it, there are already short videos of the Flogos on You Tube:

I like the idea, and can think of all kinds of mischief to get into with one of those machines.

Hillary’s Nuke

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 6, 2008

You just can’t kill the Hilda Beast:

Hillary Clinton’s campaign has a secret weapon to build its delegate count, but her top strategists say privately that any attempt to deploy it would require a sharp (and by no means inevitable) shift in the political climate within Democratic circles by the end of this month.

With at least 50 percent of the Democratic Party’s 30-member Rules and Bylaws Committee committed to Clinton, her backers could — when the committee meets at the end of this month — try to ram through a decision to seat the disputed 210-member Florida and 156-member Michigan delegations. Such a decision would give Clinton an estimated 55 or more delegates than Obama, according to Clinton campaign operatives. The Obama campaign has declined to give an estimate.

Using the Rules and Bylaws Committee to force the seating of two pro-Hillary delegations would provoke a massive outcry from Obama forces. Such a strategy would, additionally, face at least two other major hurdles, and could only be attempted, according to sources in the Clinton camp, under specific circumstances:

First, this coming Tuesday, Clinton would have to win Indiana and lose North Carolina by a very small margin – or better yet, win the Tar Heel state. She would also have to demonstrate continued strength in the contests before May 31.

Second, and equally important, her argument that she is a better general election candidate than Obama — that he has major weaknesses which have only been recently revealed — would have to rapidly gain traction, not only within the media, where she has experienced some success, but within the broad activist ranks of the Democratic Party.

Under that optimistic scenario, some Clinton operatives believe she could overcome several massive stumbling blocks:

— Clinton loyalists on the Rules Committee would have to be persuaded to put their political futures on the line by defying major party constituencies, especially black leaders backing Barack Obama. Committee members are unlikely to take such a step unless they are convinced that Clinton has a strong chance of winning the nomination.

Former DNC and South Carolina Democratic Party chair Donald Fowler — a Hillary loyalist — would, for example, face an outpouring of anger from South Carolina Democrats if he were to go along with such a strategy.

— A controversial decision to seat the two delegations, as currently constituted, would be appealed by the Obama campaign to the Democratic National Convention’s Credentials Committee.

The full make-up of the Credentials Committee will not be determined until all the primaries are completed, but the pattern of Clinton and Obama victories so far clearly suggests that Obama delegates on that committee will outnumber Clinton delegates. Obama will not, however, have a majority, according to most estimates, and the balance of power will be held by delegates appointed by DNC chair Howard Dean.

For the scenario to work, then, Dean would have to be convinced of Clinton’s superior viability in the general election, and that she has a strong chance of defeating McCain next November.

Chemtrail Nonsense

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 1, 2008

I think this is my first foray into the thankless world of posting a video debunking a PCT (Paranoid Conspiracy Theorist). It was also appropriate that I used the bugle call “Fix Bayonets” at the beginning because I may find myself surrounded by hordes of thoughtless tinfoil hat wearing zombies. It could get ugly.

Oh, and here is the video that prompted the above video:

How Many Of Me?

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 11, 2008

I found this little quiz at Troy LaPlante’s Blog, and thought it would be fun to try out.

I know of 9 living people with the same name as me, and six of them are related to me. But to find out that so many have the same name was cool, given that only 7,778 people have the same last name as me, and it is the 4,679th most popular name. I guess having nearly 5 million share my first name evened up the odds, eh?

HowManyOfMe.com
Logo There are
123
people with my name
in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

**update** 1.42 pm I have been playing around with the names of people I know, and several of them showed up as “There are 0 people in the U.S. named X X” So take this quiz with a little grain of salt.

The State Department investigation of improper computer access to passport records of three presidential candidates is focusing on one remaining employee — a contract worker with a company headed by an adviser to the presidential campaign of Sen. Barack Obama.

The probe by State’s inspector general will include polygraph tests for supervisors in the passport section to find out whether the three contract employees who accessed the records had a political motive or were part of a political operation to obtain personal data on Mr. Obama, Sen. John McCain or Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Two of the three contract employees had been fired before The Washington Times first reported Thursday on security breaches involving Mr. Obama’s passport records. The furor expanded yesterday to incidents involving the passport records of Mr. McCain and Mrs. Clinton.

The third employee, who has not been fired, worked for The Analysis Corporation (TAC), which is headed by John O. Brennan, a former CIA agent who is an adviser to Mr. Obama’s presidential campaign on intelligence and foreign policy.

Holy. Freaking. Cow. We’ve been told that Obama is a disciple of Saul Alinsky….

It’s a good thing she will destroy him rather than see him become President so she can have a shot in 4 years. Can you imagine what this General Election season will be like? George Soros and Friends throwing $350 million worth of attack ads at McCain, and Hillary’s Machine focused on undermining Obama from every conceivable angle! Will Algore ride to the rescue?

The Next Obama Speech, As Written By Common Cents

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 20, 2008

A new blog, called Common Cents, has written Barack McDaddy Obama’s next speech for him, and since I can’t link to individual posts, I’ll reproduce it in full below:

COMMON CENTS WRITES BARACK OBAMA’S NEXT SPEECH

“Good evening my friends! I come to you today as an agent of the future. Now for far far too long now politicians have feared the future – they have dreaded the future. I come to you with a new message “Do not fear the future”! I can say this because I humbly believe that the FUTURE LIES IN OUR FUTURE NOT IN OUR PAST. The cynic may say the future is not in our future but I can say to you without equivocation and with complete confidence that the future lies not in our past – not in the present but in the future. The past is clearly past and the present is clear in the present but the future is what lies ahead not as the cynics say in the past. Now as the future comes it slowly becomes the present and then eventually becomes the past. But the future will not come before the past but after it thus we look forward to the future, not the past, because the past has passed and the future lies before us, until it becomes the present and eventually the past (LOUD APPLAUSE). So I ask you to join with me as we look forward to the future and with great anticipation because the future is what we all will have to face! The cynics may say that we fear the future and dread the present but this campaign is rooted in the philosophy that the future is the only thing that exists beyond the present.

– Now I also come to you as an agent of Hope. Hope is what we hope for not what is not hoped for. Although in the past hope was based on things not hoped for I say to you in our campaign we will only hope for hopeful things. Without hope is hopelessness which is defined by the absence of hope. Those unfortunate souls without hope need only hope to attain hope and become hopeful. So if we only hope we can replace hopelessness with hope and become filled with hope. Is it this simple – I believe so – if only the hopeless begin to hope they will become hopeful once the hopelessness leaves. Hope implies a certain amount of despair, wanting, wishing and anguish. But in this campaign I pledge to you to replace all absence of hope with hope and to work tirelessly, night and day to bring hope to those without hope so that the hopeless can become transformed, even transfigured, to hopeful without leaving their hope behind. How can they leave their hope behind if they have no hope and thus are hopeful. I believe that every human being in God’s creation has hope even those who the cynics and the critics say are hopeless have some vestige of hope innate in them and we will lift up that hope, we will nourish and nuture that hope until they become hopeful and filled with hope! (LOUD APPLAUSE) Some may say this has been tried in the past, to lift up those without hope, to to install hope to those without hope but this campaign is different. This campaign is founded on hope and literally injecting hope into the hopeless, to root out all vestiges of hopeless until all are hopeful and full of hope – because those without hope are the ones most in need of hope. The hopeful already have hope, my friend it is the hopeless who need the hope that we so clearly bring!

– And additionally this grass roots campaign is about the future and obviously about hope but ultimately this campaign is routed in change. Now change is not possible without changing, without changing we have not changed and we are unchanged. (APPLAUSE> The change may or may not be easy but more likely than not it is hard because the easy change may have already occurred. Thus if we are left with a choice between easy and hard change in the past only the easy change occurred but I pledge to you – I make a solemn vow to be an agent not only of easy change but also of hard change. If we only change the easy and neglect to change the hard what good is that because the hard change remains unchanged until we change it. Now if we change the hard but do not change the easy we fall into that trap where the hard change becomes the easy and the easy change becomes hard and visa-versa. Now in the past the cynics and critics have said that the hard change is hard to change while the easy change is easy to change. Now that may sound good until you dig deep and really examine what that means, now everyone here is smart enough to realize that if we do not change the hard change it will be unchanged until we change it. (LOUD APPLAUSE) Now my friends, I pledge to you on this day to not rest – to work tirelessly – to change both the easy change and the hard change, unless the hard change is too hard to change!!

– This campaign is about all the above The Future, Hope and Change. We can hope for change but we must do more than hope. As I stated hopelessness is the absence of hope and the future lies not in our past but in our future. This campaign began and continues as a campaign of hope and change so as not to avoid the future but to embrace the future. We can hope to change the change but we must remember to change both the easy and the hard change. Hopefully. So in conclusion, I give you my solemn vow, my solemn pledge to work day and night to work toward the future, to change both the hard and easy change not only in the future but in the present, until the present becomes the past at which time it will become impossible to change, as has happened in the past! For until we change the present it will be impossible to change the past because the present becomes the unchanged past if not changed. My fellow Americans – I have been very specific about the change and hope which I propose. The cynic will say it is to much to hope for all this change. I say we are Americans, One Country and the I will be there to enact this change and hope in the future, once it becomes the present and before it becomes the past!!! THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE – FEMALES FAINT

A Funny Observation About Spitzer And The Dow Jones

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 11, 2008

I think it is funny that the day after the breaking of the Spitzer Sex Scandal, the market opened up, and looks to close up for the day.

The numbers at 3.56pm: 12,081.67 +341.52 (+2.91%)

Who said Democrats can’t make the stock market go up?
