Vigilant Freedom Media Alert?

Just checked my mail and was wondering if any other fellow SOB’s got this same e-mail…

*****Dear Blogger,
Today, those of us who believe we must win the war on terror have an extraordinary opportunity. Freedom’s Watch has released several moving and emotional commercials to major television and radio outlets from veterans and their families - people who have given the ultimate sacrifice. will talk a lot about the quitting and giving up in Iraq. But what they won’t discuss – and in truth, what they just don’t care about – is the overwhelming cost of U.S. and Iraqi lives and security if we give up too soon and lose this war. We are asking you to join us on this national media day. You can watch these heartbreaking testimonies of Iraq veterans and their families at:

Then please call 1-877-222-8001 and tell your Member of Congress that defeat is NOT an option!

We're also asking you to help spread this message. Host these videos at your blog, and urge your readers to contact their congressmen as well. Help get the word out that victory is America’s only option!

Handy tool for SOB members

I got tired of using proprietary software to keep track of all the news feeds and blogs that I check daily, and I found the "My Yahoo" service clunky at best ... so I built something on my own. It collects all of my regular sources on one page, allowing me to keep up with everything at a glance.

Feel free to use it yourself, fellow SOB-ers, or save a copy and alter it to suit your needs. The HTML is pretty bare-bones and clean, so it ought to be fairly easy to customize.

Here's my info dump. I hope someone finds it useful. If you snag it for your own use, just remember to grab a copy of the stylesheet too (or it'll look nasty).

Time to nuke a spammer!

My e-mail's been spotty lately, so hopefully one of the SOB Alliance tech wizards will see this. Courageous Conservatism has been taken over by a spammer.
