Thunder Pig Out of Lockdown Status

Posted by Thunder Pig on August 2, 2008

**Mirror of my real blog, in case Blogger goes nutso again.**

This is the shortest lockdown I’ve experienced, not that I’m complaining.

Regular blogging will resume shortly.

I wonder what would have happened had I been on a vacation when these flags were thrown? I would have returned to nothing.

Thank You, Blogger, for providing another incentive to move to my own domain, and to seek another blogging platform.

Rubber Ducks Tour The World

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 23, 2008

Hold fast to that rubber ducky, Ernie!


On January 10, a container holding almost 29,000 plastic bath toys spills off a cargo ship into the middle of the Pacific Ocean and breaks open. The unsinkable toys, which were en route from Hong Kong to Tacoma (Washington), include a lot of iconic yellow rubber ducks that have since been caught up in the world’s ocean currents and continue turning up on the most improbable shores. Curtis Ebbesmeyer, a retired oceanographer, saw from the beginning how valuable the rubber duckies could be in tracing ocean currents, and correctly predicted their trip through the Northwest Passage.

The toys, or ‘Friendly Floatees’, as they became known, made their first landfall in mid November of 1992, when the counter-clockwise Subpolar Gyre started dumping the yellow rubber ducks (and blue turtles, red beavers and green frogs) on Alaskan shores. It took the ducks about three years to drift full circle on the Gyre – scientists calculate they drift 50% faster than the water in the current itself. They turned up all over the Pacific: Japan, Hawaii, North America and Australia.

Kennedy Has A Malignant Brain Tumor

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 20, 2008

My mother always said that if I couldn’t say anything good, keep my mouth shut…

I’m not saying a thing, except that Senator Kennedy is a most detestable person, and has been as long as I have been alive, and certainly since he left Mary Jo Kopechne to die.

Blogs of War has more.

Hello World

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 15, 2008

I created this account to comment on a blog, and might as well play around with this platform to see if it is better than blogger, which I have used since May 2005 at Thunder Pig.

I also have a fledgling headline news site I have operated since November 2006 at West Carolina Report.

Now That is a Monster Pig !!!

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 26, 2007

I was checking out Drudge, and found this story about a 1,000 plus pound wild boar killed in Alabama by an 11-year old boy. An excerpt from the article:


MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Hogzilla is being made into a horror movie. But the sequel may be even bigger: Meet Monster Pig. An 11-year-old Alabama boy used a pistol to kill a wild hog his father says weighed a staggering 1,051 pounds and measured 9-feet-4 from the tip of its snout to the base of its tail. Think hams as big as car tires.

Meet Monster Pig

A website has been put up to commemorate the kill, and in a move to warm the very cockles of my capitalist heart, make a little money from the accomplishment! I haven’t seen the site yet, because it has lots of photos, and ten minutes later, it is still loading…I am on dial up that wavers in speed from 28K to 45K depending on how many people in my neighborhood are online.

Duke Lacrosse Scandal: Eight Lessons by Dennis Prager

Duke Lacrosse Scandal: Eight Lessons

By Dennis Prager

America’s news media, an amoral university, an opportunistic district attorney, and a police department that seems to have collaborated in framing innocent students all combined to nearly destroy the lives of three innocent young men — members of the Duke University lacrosse team.

The attorney general of North Carolina announced that all charges — of rape, sexual assault and whatever other charges a mendacious young woman got Mike Nifong to bring against the Duke lacrosse team players — were being dropped. He pronounced the students “innocent,” not merely “not guilty.” And the attorney general also declared Nifong a “rogue prosecutor.”

The lessons of this terrible story are obvious, but given the political correctness of our time and the inverted values that prevail among America’s elites — particularly the news media, the universities and the legal profession — these lessons will rarely be expressed, let alone learned.

First, the rape of a name is also a rape. A false accusation of rape can be as devastating to a man and his family as a real rape can be to a woman and her family. Sometimes a real rape is more destructive; sometimes the rape of a name is more destructive. It is therefore a grave injustice not to prosecute the woman who brought these false charges.

Second, moral Americans of every race must acknowledge that our society has a problem of anti-white prejudice in parts of the African American community. Proportionally, it seems that more blacks unfairly mistrust whites than whites unfairly mistrust blacks. Mike Nifong won his race for district attorney largely by appealing to this prejudice.
