Rush wants us to follow him on Twitter and re-tweet his tweets. One of us will win a new i-Pad with Rush’s EIB engraving on it.

For those who haven’t signed up on Twitter yet, here are some great tips on how to use it:

MICHELLE MALKIN LAUNCHES CUTTING-EDGE TWITTER CURATION WEBSITE

HotAir.com founder recruits new team for “newswire of the 21st century”

Colorado Springs, Col., March 7 – Leading new media entrepreneur Michelle Malkin today announced the launch of TWITCHY.COM, a ground-breaking entrant in the Twitter curation/aggregation space. The founder of powerhouse blogs MichelleMalkin.com (established 2004) and HotAir.com (established 2006 and sold to Salem Communications in 2010) has recruited a savvy team of editors from across the country to staff the new must-read website.

“TWITCHY.COM is a ground-breaking Twitter curation site powered by a kinetic staff of social media junkies,” Malkin said. “We’re mining Twitter to bring you ‘who said what’ in U.S. politics, global news, sports, entertainment, media, and breaking news 24/7.”

Malkin added: “If it’s news, TWITCHY.COM is on it. If it should be news, TWITCHY.COM is ahead of it.”

Round-the-clock TWITCHY.COM editors will bring readers buzz-worthy tweets, reactions, and memes long before traditional media outlets decide it’s “breaking.” Unlike the current generation of Twitter aggregators, TWITCHY.COM will be driven by an eclectic mix of human curators whose judgment can’t be replicated by computer algorithms.

“TWITCHY.COM is the newswire of the 21st century,” Malkin explained. We’re always wired. Never static. And we’re completely freed from slow-moving, obsolete corporate media restraints and biases against ‘non-traditional’ sources of news.”

From plane crashes and earthquakes, to political scandals and Hollywood catfights, to democracy revolutions abroad and the death of Osama bin Laden, more and more users get their news from Twitter.

TWITCHY.COM cuts through the noise and sifts through massive amounts of data to keep both casual news consumers and consummate newshounds up to speed. “Whether you’re a Twitter addict or a Twitter newbie, TWITCHY.COM will become a central part of your go-to, daily Internet diet,” Malkin promised.

Twitter is the online social network and microblogging service with more than 100 million active users and an estimated half-billion registered users worldwide. Celebrities, media moguls, journalists, political leaders, business executives, and athletes share the global messaging platform with ordinary citizens who trade scoops, gossip, jokes, photos, and video in real time to the tune of 290 million tweets per day.

“Bump for Oprah living in the real world.”

It’s a start, but only the first baby-step on her long, long journey back to the world of reality. After all, she is still endorsing Obama.

High winds blew down a section of my fence night before last, and it was braced with buttresses, too. Still blowing hard today—my second-least favorite thing about Colorado (first is the permanent drought).

Rush is right.
If you cant fly a jet with a payload on it, its bogus.
We are using biofuels to do that but its not cost effective.

Listening to Rush on Streaming Internet - 770 WABC New York. Why are there blank spaces where the commercials ought to be? Just silence. Is this a result of lost advertisers?

I have a question about the ipad giveaway. Do you need to retweet or is just being a follower enough to enter one in the contest?

Its probably a problem with WABC’s stream.

Often streams on the internet don’t have the commercials the airways do.

They usually do.
I post the Gun Talk Radio thread with streaming from KIDO.
Normally they have the commercials but often the stream gets fouled and they lose the local feed along with the commercials.
That beats the opposite!
Though it gets annoying because you think you lost the stream when there is dead air.

At least I hope that someone from FR wins one, but it will not be me.

LOL

Just imagine what you'd experience if you were to move to the Louisville/Broomfield area (up around Rocky Flats).

No big difference in annual lack of precipitation....you are, after all, smack in the middle of what could reasonably be called The Great American Desert, but the wind out "on The Flats" can get plumb wicked.

Standing joke in the area refers to a Rocky Flats Windgage, which is a ten-foot length of logging chain suspended from a stout pole set in the ground.

If the chain is vertical, there's no wind.

When it's horizontal, there's a little bit of a breeze.

When chain, pole and all are gone, the wind's just starting to blow hard.

(Yeah, I used to live there. Lost count of the number of fences I had to replace as well as the times that I had to replant seedling pines that that **** wind had blown completely out of the ground.....and it ain't much better in some places in Montana.)

I had a scoped OD green armalite in my hot little hands a few years ago for $850.
A guy at the shop talked me out of it. I think its at his house now LoL

Then I found a DPMS with the stainless target barrel and bipod for 1200 but i decided it was to heavy.

Tom told us the other week that several companys plan to bring out Ar10 platforms in the next month.
I expect this will drop prices due to competition

Keep an eye out for values in the near future.
But they aint cheap to feed.

“Mrs S got the new iPad over the weekend. It’s lighter and she can use a wireless printer with it”

Nice! Family keeps asking me if I want an Ipad. So far “no.” Wireless printer capability is a good start. I either print, type or send emails to myself based on the relevancy of what I am reading, so I don’t see it as a benefit thus far....But, then again, I am slow on the uptake with the latest tech gadgets. I still despise cell phones. A fast, light mega-capacity laptop is my only requirement.

Are you on Twitter?

OT: I still think Rush is struggling, no matter what he says. He jumps from subject to subject. First, he needs to preserve his “kingdom,” but then we need him to keep his eye on the ball-—even more so as we get through these next months. That requires contemplation and reflection, and Rush is a little off his game, IMO.

“The good is often enemy to the best.” Now is the time to be focused like a laser-—i.e., Levin and Plante. We need Rush to keep candidates’, Congressmen’s, and citizens’ feet to the fire.
