New Blogroll Category- Spanish Sites

I was looking up stuff about Santiago Matamoros, St. James the Moorslayer. James, son of Zebedee and with his brother John a “Son of Thunder” is the patron saint of Spain and his appearance in the Battle of Clavijo in 844 is credited with spurring the army of King Ramiro to victory over the Moslems.

In the process I found some nationalist sites based in Spain and I have added these to the blogroll in a new category. My Spanish is fairly basic but I plan on taking a close look at these.

“Hijo de trueno, caballero en corcel blanco, hijo de trueno, guianos y hacernos vencer.”

If that doesn’t stir your blood, nothing will.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.
