Alright, I really should have started the title as "one OF the great conservative....". He is not the ONLY one but he is a good one!
I am talking about Rep. Bruce Hanna of District 7, basically the Douglas County/Roseburg area.
I have had the privilege of meeting him and having him as a guest on the radio show and he is just plain outstanding. He is part of the group of Conservative Republicans who are trying to get a REAL budget through the Legislature this session. This budget is called the "Back to Basics Budget for 2009-2011".
It really is a great piece of legislation and is very understandable.
Here is a great video of him talking on the House Floor earlier this month:
He makes sense, he is full of common sense and he is sharp. With Rep. Kim Thatcher, Sen. Ted Ferrioli and a few other brave Conservatives, they are taking on the bozo that is our Governor, Mr. Ted, the famous talking horse.
Be sure and listen to our show Monday through Friday live on 1430 AM, KYKN or on my website you can listen to today's show or old shows.
Rep. Hanna, I applaud you!

(Above left, Justin prepping for the show, above right, a shot of him from my studio into his)
I just have to send out props to my producer/engineer, and definite sidekick, Justin Herr.
He spends a ton of time every day prepping the show, getting sound effects ready, music pieces and more. He also pops in with great one liners and other funny stuff.
I COULD not do the show without him!
Thanks Justonian the man!

I am so excited to announce that starting at noon today, my new website is up! In fact you may be here from the site itself. The Bill Post Radio Show website
It is really cool! It has each day's show in an instant audio player and we put the show on within about a half hour of it being over.
We will have archived shows soon.
We have a message board so anyone can chat and discuss things.
We have links to this blog and Justin's blog.
Lots of fun!
Those of you who are regular readers of my blog will find less "personal" stuff on the blog now, but it will have a much wider audience, so I will try to stick to "non-family" as in MY family stuff.
Thank you all for your support and please go visit our site soon!

I saw the new Star Trek movie Saturday and I have to give a short review. Now if you haven't seen it, part of my review will include stuff you won't want to know, so read at your peril.
As a TOTAL Star Trek GEEK and unashamedly I might add, I went into this movie with very skeptical vision. I love JJ Abrams and his films such as the Mission Impossible movies and I love "Lost", so I figured he would make a good movie, but hey, this is Star Trek, you don't mess with Captain Kirk et al.
I was NOT disappointed. It was a GREAT movie! Tons of action, great dialogue, cool effects, all that you could possibly want.
As a Trekker, I was also pleased at how well he took care of the main characters. He didn't compromise them. By using a time travel idea, he was able to create a NEW story line that will enable them to make many more Star Trek movies without running into the old stories.
I can even forsee THE Captain Kirk, William Shatner, making an appearance, much as Leonard Nimoy did as Spock.
You'll have to see it to figure that one out!
I give this one a BIG thumbs up. I will watch it over and over again!
I especially love the guy who plays Leonard McCoy, "Bones", he really captured the essence of Dr. McCoy from the legendary DeForest Kelley (gone on to Star Trek heaven).
All in all a fun film for the whole family. Very little bad language, one small intimate scene that didn't go too far. Lots of good old fashioned Romulan killing too!
Go see it!!

Today, May 7, 2009 is the annual National Day of Prayer. Now I don't have the time nor the energy to find the origins of this tradition, nor do I care how it started, I just like it.
Of course the Bible tells us many times to pray. Paul said to "Pray constantly" and similar statements, but this day is set aside, much like Sunday is set aside, as a day to stop what we are doing and take a little extra time to pray.
Our new President has decided that this "public display of prayer" is not befitting of his White House and so yesterday he declared that the day would not be observed "publicly" but instead, he would be in "private" prayer.
Now I am just fine with private prayer, in fact the best praying time I have is in my "prayer closet", but this is the direction our fearless "leader" is taking us. Slowly but surely his TRUE inner thoughts are being exposed, not by anyone but himself.
He says we are "not a Christian nation" and with his Chicago church and political background I could see where he gets that from.
All this to say, of course we don't care what this buffoon says, we will pray anyway and we will pray most assuredly for him.
I, however am taken back to the many times I observed the dear older, gray haired saints of my church. They pray like no one else I know. They pray humbly, deeply and most emphatically from their hearts. I praise and thank God for this simple means of communication that He allows between his creation and the Creator Himself. What an awesome God.
Pray today, pray everyday, pray "unceasingly"!
