Dear Readers: I have a few items and events that I would like to support, promote, and publicize!
1) PLEASE “LIKE” THE SLOB WEBSITE (if you have a Facebook account): For the friends of the Shrine of Flaming Capitalism, could you please hit the “like” thumbs up button on the right menu of the website for the SAN DIEGO LOCAL ORDER OF BLOGGERS? One of the Shrines regular readers said it reminded him of Pajamas Media. I would also like to thank SLOB Charles Caesar for putting this together. All my favorite San Diego San Diego Tea Party group-SCTRC pundits are gathered together for convenient reading and agitating. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
2) Let SCTRC President Dawn Wildman Wildman know if you are interested in participating in a San Diego Tea Party workshop: The Grassroots Activist School will teach you how to get involved and make a difference in your local elections and governance. This training gives you the nuts and bolts tools needed to hold your elected leaders accountable and engage in the dialog impacting major issues of the day. If there is enough interest, this workshop will be set-up and I will post further information. You can contact Dawn by clicking HERE and using the email address given.
3) GET IN THE MOOD TO BATTLE!!! The Young Prince and I are big fans of SPIKE TV’s Deadliest Warrior series. The television program presents information on historical or modern warriors and their weapons are used to determine which of them is the “deadliest” based upon tests performed during each episode. The show is characterized by its use of the data compiled in creating a dramatization of the warriors’ battle to the death. As I come from a family of fencers and historical reenactment aficionados, this is awesome. The fact it has detailed scientific analysis and medical evaluations of the wounds that the weapons inflict, the science is an extra bonus.
My son’s fencing school is having a special event this Friday night (Aug. 5) from 6-8 pm.
* Watch Deadliest Camper instructor Barry Jacobsen and his friends as they compare the strengths and weaknesses of a Spartan Warrior and Ninja Master.
* Witness the simulated duel to the death using the evidence gathered from scientific experiments performed during the episode to decide the Deadliest Warrior.
* Enjoy popcorn, pizza, and drinks (FREE!) as students engage in critical discussions and even have the opportunity to take a look at real weapons from the show!
* **IMPORTANT**: Please be aware that this show can be a bit gory for small children. So, if you’re not sure if you want your little one’s watching the show click here and decide if this show is right for your family.

* Left Turn: How Liberal Media Bias Distorts the American Mind: I heard about this book during the Larry Elder show. What makes this book different is that the author, a UCLA professor, puts scientific analysis and hard numbers in an innovative matter as to how much media bias sways opinion leftward: Groseclose contends that the general leftward bias of the media has shifted the PQ of the average American by about 20 points, on a scale of 100, the difference between the current political views of the average American, and the political views of the average resident of Orange County, California or Salt Lake County, Utah. With Left Turn readers can easily calculate their own PQ—to decide for themselves if the bias exists. This timely, much-needed study brings fact to this often overheated debate.
Needless to say, the book won’t get the same media attention that progressive tomes do — so please spread the word.
5) Listen for me on the Chris Reed Show -Top Stors on AM600 tonight. I have a voice for blogging, so please send me a lot of prayers and good wishes.
