94 Million Hits on the Never Forget Tribute Counter

nft94meg.jpgThis morning at about 10:34:40 Arizona time, the hit counter for the Never Forget Tribute rolled past ninety-four million. The hit counter displays an approximation of the number of times that the Tribute has been accessed since August of 2005, the date when it was made available to other websites. Knowing the exact count is virtually impossible, since we only began tracking it after it had been deployed for a couple of years. We used an extrapolation algorithm to establish the approximate count back then, and have incorporated a real-time hit counter since.

The Hits per hour and Hits per day readouts are also approximations. One thing for sure, though, is that the HPD and HPH have diminished from their peak values from about 2009; at that time there were more than 1000 hits per hour. I suppose that a lot of bloggers who previously displayed the Tribute have dropped out of the game. I also suspect that the paradigm shift towards social media had an effect of reducing hits to blogging sites.

The last time we posted about the hit counter was when it passed 90,000,000 in December of 2014. We again note that the hits continue to diminish. In the last post, we extrapolated passing a hundred million hits during this year, but also noted the hits dropping off due to attrition in the blogosphere and a shift to social media other than blogging.

We also adjusted the hits per hour and hits per day estimation based on more recent hit data. As you can see, the HPH and HPD estimates in the image above are substantially greater than the hit counter graphic numbers displayed in the right sidebar.

Despite the decline in popularity of the Never Forget Tribute graphic, we will continue to support those sites that display it. We will also continue to NEVER FORGET the surprise attacks by Islamic Terrorists.

Islamic Terrorists in Europe and Beyond

solidarity.jpgOur neighbor with French ancestry flew this display of colors today, apparently in solidarity with France after the recent Islamic terrorist attacks in Paris. We noticed it this afternoon and I took this image from our driveway using the telephoto lens. Click on the image to enlarge.

With regard to solidarity, I’m not a Francophile by any stretch of the imagination, but if French President Hollande goes through with his resolution to fight terrorists, then I’m all for it and believe the US should help. I also believe that the terrorism in France is not a local problem and will soon spread to other places in Europe and, sadly, to America.

The Executive Branch of the US Government, on its own accord and without permission of the Congress has ordered the relocation of “refugees” to New Orleans and other places stateside. That is just plain wrong. I read that Ted Cruz wants to stop Obama’s illegal importation of terrorists, but I don’t know how he expects to do that. I support the notion since there is clear evidence that some of the French Islamic Terrorists were originally “refugees.”

Many of the pro-gun websites I frequent advise that wherever we go, we should all be carrying our guns all the time. That is nothing new for Damsel and I, but we will have to be especially vigilant for anything that smacks of potential terrorism. Unlike TSA and other politically correct government entities, we always have, and always will, profile people we encounter.

9/11 in Perspective - Ramirez

There is no doubt that September 11, 2001 was a terrible day in America. Michael Ramirez, however, postulates what the Iran Deal may provide for the terrorists, might look like in perspective to the 9/11 terrorism:

Perspective

Never Forget: The animated graphic has been displayed around the internet for a little over ten years now. The current number on the hits counter is approaching ninety-one and a half million. The hit rate has subsided in recent times from the peak a few years ago, but there are still upwards of five thousand hits per day. A lot of people will Never Forget.

Easter Deal

Easter Deal

The bungling of foreign policy has never in the history of this country been such a joke as the current administration makes it to be. I love Ramirez’ cartoon likening the idiot Kerry to a pink bunny while dancing on a carpet that is embroidered “Stupid is as stupid does.” It made me laugh out loud.

Emphasis on European Sewers

Emphasis

There is a new technology being tried out in Europe. It uses technology to detect homemade bomb-makers by sensing chemicals in the air and in sewers in urban areas. It is sponsored by the European Union.

According to an article on Fox Business, the technology works thus:

The sewer-based sensing system would use electrochemical water- and air-sampling to detect certain chemicals typically used for home-made bombs as they travel through the waste stream in urban areas.

One wonders whether the NSA isn’t already doing this in the US . . .

Never Forget

Never Forget

Never forget who the perpetrators of these two terror attacks are. Never forget that there still has been no investigation of Benghazi after a whole year. Never forget that this Syria bullsh*t is a distraction by the White House and the president’s allies from the truth about Islamic Fascism.

NEVER FORGET 9/11

Terrorism Defined

Ramirez reminds us of how terrorism is defined by the left and the media (but I repeat myself).
