The Last Samurai: Ninja Attack

In honor of my new internet capabilities, you shall now behold what must be the best sword-fighting sequence I've ever seen on film. I do have soem issues with the film (history and worldview) but that's besides the point. If you watch movies for the reasons I do, sit back and don't blink for even a second. ;-)



Apologies for the fuzziness. It ain't mah video!

Hello, strangers!

Honestly it was me who was the stranger, but no matter. ;-P

As you all know, my internet access is limited, but today I got hooked up to high-speed. Still expect a lower post count, most likely, but still...high speed?

*sniff* ...it's...so...beautiful!

So who's got lotsa videos to show me? :-D

URGENT: A Vital Message from Michael Farris

Due to my current situation/predicament, I've had to basically sit out the Parental Rights campaign the past few weeks, as much as it pains me.

What I want is a substitute.

Anyone willing?

Spencer

Dear Supporter of Parental Rights,

On August 19th, the Campaign to Secure Ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child plans a major rally in Washington, DC to advance their strategy to replace pro-parent American law with contrary international law. Perhaps it is just a coincidence, but their event is being held on Bill Clinton’s birthday. (Please click here to see the announced agenda for this rally.)

As you can see, the internationalists are planning to discuss and advance their plans for fund-raising. In the recent past I attended one of their planning meetings held in the US Senate. No expense was spared, bringing in law professors and other experts from around the world to provide this briefing to Senate staffers. This meeting was funded by a grant from a major American foundation.

Here’s the point. When these people do fund-raising, they have big donors and very high expectations. They are undoubtedly planning to raise millions of dollars.

Parentalrights.org has achieved remarkable success with a fraction of the budget possessed by the other side. We have employed a group of Patrick Henry College students over the summer to be able to organize grassroots efforts to help pass the Parental Rights Amendment.

These students have been tremendously successful. Not only have we seen the number of co-sponsors in the House move all the way to 114 representatives, but they have helped to organize face-to-face meetings between our supporters and 119+ additional members of Congress.

Our budget for this program has been exhausted by these summer efforts. If we have additional funding we can employ these and other students on a part-time basis to continue pressing forward.

At the end of the day the most important effort is at the grassroots level. Our grassroots coordinators are at the heart of the most effective thing we do.

The Obama Administration and the Senate and House leadership have been practicing legislation by ambush. They bring up an issue and push for quick ratification of their radical agenda. The internationalist community is counting on this strategy to eradicate traditional parental rights without giving American families the time to figure out what is going on.

This is a simple reality. If we do not build our network to defeat the UN’s Convention on the Rights of the Child before they launch their efforts, we will not have the time to get the organization and supporters in place. If we do not have money, we cannot build the network.

If you want to see American families retain our ability to make decisions for children and resist the growing government intrusion, I urge you to become a financial supporter of Parentalrights.org today.

Basic membership is only $25 a year. If you first joined in 2008, won’t you consider renewing your membership today? (See right column here -->)

Our goal is to have 3000 new members by August 19—the date of their rally. But our membership drive will continue until September 17th—a more appropriate anniversary to celebrate. September 17th is Constitution Day—the day we celebrate the ratification of the US Constitution.

We will send as a special thank you, two of our new Parental Rights t-shirts for a gift of $100 or more.

Our goal is to have 10,000 new or renewed members between now and Constitution Day.

The internationalists who believe that government knows best will be well-funded. We need to have the ability to fight fire with fire.

Thank you for supporting parental rights in this tangible and essential manner.

1,000 Posts!

To my amazing readers,

Well, it's been an awesome almost-three-years. My blog has changed significantly (I prefer to say "grown"), and I've spent lots of time penning and organizing this little corner of the interweb. It's been great, primarily because of all of you.

Yes, I write for myself, really. In the end, even though it was the spurring of friends on the old "Sly Piggery" with Nathan Cunningham and company that got me started here I now do it because I love it. I love to speak to the world, I love to say what I have to say, and I want to be heard. I have so much to say that this is the best way for me to say it. But what makes it that much better is that you actually read my rantings!

So here's to you, my glorious readers. It's been one fantastic 1000 posts. Let's set our next goal for 10,000!

Spencer

For your consideration

Update

Sorry I've been absent so long. I haven't been on vacation or anything, I've just been...busy.

Stuff is crazy in my life right now, so please forgive my lack of posts. You should still see posts, and don't stop checking as I will continue to update, just don't expect one every night anymore for at least a little while.
