  1. I love your site. It rocks.

    Shame though of what we have become. It’s cool to be crude and hateful and show disdain.

    Mind Control. Michelle is Bill Aryes’ partner. Always has been. Education is their treasure trove.
    Barry Soetero is some geek they picked up along the way.

    Michelle’s inner beauty sure shows through.

    They have already ruined our country.

    Really like it here, Quipster.

  2. I have read a few of your posts and I decided to add you to my short, but growing, list of recommended blogs.
    Keep up the good posts.

    Q,

    I, like you, am a Sarah Palin fan.

    I came across your site through Michelle Malkin’s site.

    My blog is the Tygrrrr Express.
    http://www.tygrrrrexpress.com

    If you feel it is of a high quality, please consider a link or blogroll exchange.

    Also, I get a decent amount (not Malkin-sized!) of traffic, in case you have anything
    you would like to promote.

    Respectfully,

    eric aka the Tygrrrr Express

  5. I enjoyed the Snow Machine / Fordson tractor rig. I was hoping you could tell me where this video originally came from? It is obviously taken from a vhs (or similar) video – but where did you come across it?

    Thanks

  6. Rob, The video was found on Live Leak at http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=568_1233111054. It comes from the Archives of Michigan. The original film was uploaded as a video by someone, possibly from this site, who obviously thought just as highly about the machine.

    “This is a 16mm demo film of the Armstead Snow Motors Company concept snow vehicle. It was filmed in 1924. The concept is applied to a Fordson tractor and a Chevrolet automobile. The original film is part of the collections of the Archives of Michigan. The text of the original patent is at http://www.google.com/patents?id=_oJZAAAAEBAJ&dq=snow+machine+tractor&as_drrb_ap=b&as_minm_ap=1&as_miny_ap=1915&as_maxm_ap=1&as_maxy_ap=1930&as_drrb_is=q&as_minm_is=1&as_miny_is=1919&as_maxm_is=1&as_maxy_is=2009&num=50.” From Vimeo http://www.vimeo.com/groups/10240/videos/2638558.

    It is a cool historical piece that we all could learn a lot from. That’s why it went up as a post. Maybe someone can teach us all some more about it, or they can revive this machine and modernize it. Lots of folks could certainly benefit.
