Pro Wrestler Roddy Piper Has Cancer

One of my Idols as a kid was the famous Rowdy Roddy Piper (seen below with Ric Flair). His in ring persona as well as his outside real life persona illustrated that he takes crap from no one. His example of living life his way, to have the guts to be free from external influence and pressure, was a huge inspiration to me while growing up during my parents divorce, when I was a teenager. Rowdy Roddy Piper gave me a role model which kept me on track and independent. He has contracted Lymphoma Cancer. I sincerely wish that he is able to overcome this, and will have many more years to inspire! Please check out his website, and purchase items from his store to help him and his family!

Antarctic Ice Sheet Growing!

"Contrary to all the horror stories one hears about global warming-induced mass wastage of the Antarctic ice sheet leading to rising sea levels that gobble up coastal lowlands worldwide, the most recent decade of pertinent real-world data suggest that forces leading to just the opposite effect are apparently prevailing, even in the face of what climate alarmists typically describe as the greatest warming of the world in the past two millennia or more." From Real Scientists with real data!

The Alarmists and Enviro Crazies are all wrong. Earth is merely having normal temperature fluctuations as it does all the time, even at times prior to people inhabiting the planet. People have only been viewing mere seconds on the planets ecological clock. People do NOT affect the world climate.

Journey of the Shuttle Booster Rockets

This video shows the awesome flight path of one of the Booster Rockets from the Space Shuttle. It all begins at the launch pad, and ends in the sea. Wow!

Batman vs Star Trek

Racos Films has created a crossover parody of Batman and Star Trek. Not bad really, it has its funny moments, but the quality to detail is rather good. If you were a fan of both of these 60s TV shows, you may enjoy this mixture of old style TV video production.

FREE Weather Channel Widget and Screen Saver for Mac

I just grabbed these nice new applications for the Mac. The screen saver is nice. It shows the current temp as nature images display in the background. The Weather Channel Widget also shows the current conditions, but of course, displays along side your other Widgets. PC versions of Desktop Weather are there too.

OJ Selling Book on If He Did It or NOT?

This is a very funny Editorial Cartoon of OJ. Makes one wonder just what OJ had in mind. Sadly no matter how you look at things, it is sad that he feels the need to profit from the death of his ex wife. He just lost a book deal to explain how he would have murdered his wife, IF he did it!

Special Thanks to Troops Site - Connection Pointe Military Support Group

The site Connection Pointe Military Support Group has put together a special Thank You presentation to the Troops. I must say that their choice of colors for the site are excellent (they are using the same template we are here). See the presentation at the link above or below.

Say Thanks To Troops For Thanksgiving!

Sent to my by a friend, this site offers a chance for us to say Thanks to the Troops Overseas. Remember these brave volunteers when you are sitting down to eat a hearty meal and then watch football with the family on Thanksgiving! Simply choose a card design, one of which was submitted by children, and then send a Thank You message attached. It is easy! Brought to you by Xerox.

Keep An Eye on Judges and Politicians!

It is about time that Judges have an eye kept on their decisions. Many judges, once they are placed on the bench, either think they are destined to rule, or allowed to manipulate popular opinion. Neither is really true, and it takes new website like this Bad Judges Blog to do some of the work!

Also, Rhetoric Buster has a new BLOG and it sure is fine. The author, a friend of Weblinksnewsletter, is much more moderate than I am. I tend to believe more core Conservative values. But the information contained within is well worth the time. Make sure you check out the info on the CNN airing of terrorist propaganda. This may not be good for young viewers!

Both sites are good additions to your political research. Start studying for the next election. Don't wait until a few weeks before hand, which allows the media to manipulate stories and view points.

President Hopeful John Edwards Hates then Loves WalMart!

Yes see for yourself. John Edwards, the losing candidate for VP in 2004, always wants to change WalMart for the "better" and thinks they are bad for America... That is until he wants to buy something cheap like an ever important Sony Playstation 3 (PS3). What a 2 faced phony crap head!

Fact is that America LOVES WalMart!

Christmas is Christmas! And What Happened to Tolerance and Religious Freedom?

This was sent to me by a friend and reader of my website and newsletter. I decided to verify the article and have found the link. Apparently Ben Stein had much to say about Christmas and Tolerance. I couldn't agree more.

"Herewith at this happy time of year, a few confessions from my beating heart:

I have no freaking clue who Nick and Jessica are. I see them on the cover of People and Us constantly when I am buying my dog biscuits and kitty litter. I often ask the checkers at the grocery stores. They never know who Nick and Jessica are either. Who are they? Will it change my life if I know who they are and why they have broken up? Why are they so important? I don't know who Lindsay Lohan is, either, and I do not care at all about Tom Cruise's wife.

Am I going to be called before a Senate committee and asked if I am a subversive? Maybe, but I just have no clue who Nick and Jessica are. Is this what it means to be no longer young. It's not so bad.

Next confession: I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees Christmas trees. I don't feel threatened. I don't feel discriminated against. That's what they are: Christmas trees. It doesn't bother me a bit when people say, "Merry Christmas" to me. I don't think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn't bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu. If people want a creche, it's just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away.

I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat.

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship Nick and Jessica and we aren't allowed to worship God as we understand Him?

I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where Nick and Jessica came from and where the America we knew went to."

WalMart - Back in Christmas Spirit!

Great news for Americans, WalMart has decided to they will have "The Christmas Shop," formerly called "The Holiday Shop." Items are being branded with "Christmas" instead of "holiday." Kudos to WalMart to move against the politically motivated effort to get rid of all things Christmas (in name and religious context). When you do your Christmas shopping this year, remember which store calls it Christmas, and which ones are only interested in a Holiday.

See Idiot Bill Maher bash gays while you can!

See the Bill Maher anti gay comments while you can. I posted this a few days ago. The DMCA has ordered its removal, and this all smells like a mini cover up from gutless cowards who know they shouldn't have been such jerks.

Something New - Conservative Minute

Time to weigh in on the election. Seems that the Minimum wage was a major initiative that won votes across party lines. It is proposed to increase the minimum wage to $7.xx? Well why stop there? Why not make the Minimum wage, $15.00 or $20.00, maybe $30 0r $40? That way the poor would be lifted from poverty, everyone will be happy, poor people would no longer live in America. Our standard of living would out pace the World regardless of circumstances. Big nasty self serving businesses would get what they deserve, right?

Sounds fair right? NO?

Thats because we earn what we deserve, no more no less, based on what the market will bare. It is the law of economics. A person serving burgers just doesn't deserve $25.00 an hour. The skills needed are not worth that high of a fee today. They truly are NOT rocket Scientists. The trade of a retail attendant or hamburger cook just doesn't require the same skills as a Nuclear Physicist.

Wages go up or down based on market conditions such as the number of available skilled employees, demand for product, and the price of product. All of these should not be based on artificial external controls by a government. It is truly the American way to trust in the market and free enterprise. Free markets will level out and determine the best wages for workers over the long term. Minimum wage is a short term election strategy, but realistically doesn't help anyone long term. Prices always rise to meet wages, which in turn slows the economy, locally and nationally.

The minimum wage should be abolished all together. It is not an uncaring attitude, rather a realistic one. Minimum wage bills should not be used to lure voters into thinking they will benefit somehow, when they really do not.

If you want more wages you don't raise the minimum wage. You should position yourself to be worth more, get more education, more specialized skills, go to geographic areas where your skills are needed, stay out of trouble, get a high school education, maybe continue to college. There are things each of us can do to improve our salaries, none of which require new laws.

It is ultimately up to the individual to decide the salary they want and need, not government.

That's your Conservative Minute.

Liberal Bill Maher Attacks Gays on CNN

Now this is interesting. Bill Maher, who claims to be compassionate and more intelligent than many decision makers, actually bashes human beings that are Gay, on National TV. What a Jerk. Just because people are Gay doesn't mean they deserve pot shots and guffaws of laughter on TV. Shame!

All Segways Have Been Recalled

The Segway has been recalled, every single model! Thats right, apparently they had a software bug that caused the thing to quickly jump into reverse. It hasn't really grabbed the imagination of anyone except those who are zealous about the environment. If you have one, get it fixed, the company plans to load the corrected software patch on any and all recalled Segways.

Vegatarian Ice Cream Site

I know that many are Vegetarians today, and this site just happened across my radar! This is a Vegetarian Ice Cream BONANZA! The site has recipes for ice cream by vegetarians. I must admit that I wouldn't have thought it possible, but they sound appetizing. I really like and enjoy Soy Milk, and many use this as the main ingredient. Check it out!

President Bush Interview with Rush Limbaugh - Nov 1, 2006

Rush Limbaugh had the President on his show Nov 1st, and my friends, this is really good. I have to admit, the President has to be one of the more intelligent men in office, in DC today. I was stunned at his visions, and clear objectives. The President has been stating them clearly for the last 6 years, and continues to do so. You know just where you stand with this man. No changing stories to fit the times, no flip flopping positions. You can listen as well as read a long to get the full story. Do so as soon as you can. Thanks Rush for making this available online! Also see what kind of man President Bush really is, when he calls Rush "Sir" and thanks him. He is the President, the top guy, but has respect by using the term SIR.

John Kerry - What a Disgrace!

John Kerry took a potshot at our troops, our President, and our efforts to stem terrorism. Whose side is he on anyway?

Who Opened 36 New Stores in October 06? WalMart!

WalMart opened 36 new stores in October, over 8000 jobs were created across America. What a bang-up job! Consider that 54,000 people applied for those jobs, and no other establishment, even the Federal Government, has that kind of growth!

Also consider this fact, WalMart pays an average of $10 an hour, which is more than many of its unionized competitors offer. And typically when a new Wal-Mart store opens in a poor area, it receives thousands of job applications for a few hundred openings. So Wal-Mart's retail jobs of $7 to $12 an hour, which the unions deride as "poverty wages," are actually in high demand.

Bottom line, WalMart is good for America, good for the poor, and good for shoppers. Support WalMart, and oppose those who seek to tear it apart and stand in the way of American progress!

Google 3D Software for Mac

Google has really made an impact on the software horizon that the Internet has to offer. They have a whole area on Google called Google Labs. Most of their software is geared towards the Windows majority of the population, but every once in a while they have a very nice app for the Mac. Sketchup is one of those apps, a Mac 3D modeling program, in both a free and commercial version. Worth looking into for the FREE price, and upgrade if you decide to stay with Sketchup.
