A blog about faith and being a mom.
Guns. America. A “big gulp.” Pure Mom.
Sarah Palin is slim, smart, stylish, & sensational!
Totally agree Tawny!
WAY TO GO SARAH!!!!!!! AWESOME! ABSOLUTELY AWESOME FROM START TO FINISH!
Awesome speech from your mom; she kicked butt!
A minor point, I know, but Big Gulps are exempt from Bloomberg’s proposed ban.
“Guns. America. A Big Gulp.” If someone were describing me, I sure hope I bring to mind a much better list.
Bloomie’s ban was banned. As MiddleRoader points out, the Big Gulp was exempt (even though 7-11 sells prepared foods) which is part of the reason that the judge shot the ban down. The random decisions as to who and what was exempt. The ban had nothing to do with obesity and everything to do with control. When you make rules/regulations/laws that are arbitrary and confusing, and you force people to obey them, you begin to break down the mental processes that lead to critical thought. As this erodes people stop asking why and just follow along. Eventually you have them so broken that you can do as you please as the “political elite”. Asking “Why” is mindbogglingly important. When people stop thinking and just follow, they no longer care that a law targets a specific group of people, or targets a specific ideology. The left LOVES to portray themselves as liberal, wanting people to think that they don’t care how you live your life. when in reality they want to control every aspect. They want automatons that do not think for themselves, who plod along, blindly, numbly, not questioning why they have nothing and the “political elite” have everything. They don’t want you to smoke, drink, eat fatty foods, ingest sugars, eat meat, drive a vehicle… Control. So, ladies and gentlemen, and MiddleRoader, Think. Why do they want to institute this rule/regulation/law? What is the purpose? Could there be other reasons besides the ones stated?
Actually, I don’t support the proposed ban, although I don’t have strong feelings either way, partly because I don’t live in NYC, and small drinks are usually too large for me. But I disagree with you on the purpose of the ban—I don’t think it’s control for control’s sake. I think Bloomberg genuinely wants to improve the health of NYC’s citizens. I suspect Bloomberg would love to have the ban extended to Big Gulps, but 7-11’s are regulated by the state, not the city, so he can’t.
Hey Bristol, can you maybe get your followers to tweet me pictures of them doing the “Palin Liberty Pose”? Please? I’m using them for my blog. I am not a hater go to patrioticblog.wix.com/thelittleguys and click on the “‘Palin Liberty Pose’ Sweeping the Nation” link. Thanks to anybody who sees this:)
It is nice to see your mom using the tool liberals use so often: humor…
Unlike the humor that was used against her, your moms humor is real and constructive. It is always sad to see how liberals portray women in general let alone your mom (and you, I might add).
A great man once said: “The aim of a joke is not to degrade the human being, but to remind him that he is already degraded”
How liberals portray women?? Ann Coulter: - “I used to think women just shouldn’t be able to vote. Now, I think at least liberal women should not be able to hold office, and by woman I do not mean to limit that to the biological sense.” (And yes, I realize that she was not serious.) Rush Limbaugh: - “That’s why I wrote Undeniable Truth #24, which, while it established me as a great thinker, also made me enemy and target number one of the feminists and their early acolytes. And that is: ‘Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society’.” “I once told a feminist that I had no problem at all with the women’s movement, especially when walking behind it. They didn’t think that was funny. ” (For the record, I do think that’s a little funny.) That’s just from THIS MONTH. Can we just admit that neither side has a monopoly on sexism, racism, rudeness, and stupidity, and move on to the actual idealogical issues?
LOL! Love the Rush qoutes, really funny! Now Bill Maher and his kind are not funny, they are vile.
Ann Coulter for the record is not a conservative – she dated Bill Maher – by their fruits shall they be known.
Then I guess Maher is not a liberal, because he dated Coulter. (Actually, he is more libertarian than liberal, IMO. And he’s with Palin on the soda ban.) But I don’t get HBO, so I don’t listen to his show, and I really don’t care what his political views are. Coulter and Rush are not comedians; they are political commentators.
So now Rush is a political commentator, yesterday libs told me he was just an entertainer…
Melory, I agree with you that with the line between entertainer and commentator is blurred for Maher and Limbaugh (and for Jon Stewart, Dennis Miller, and many others as well.) Limbaugh has called himself both. I think it tends to be libs who call him commentator (to suit their own purposes, of course.) When he says something controversial, the libs say he’s practically the head of the GOP, and the conservatives say he’s just an entertainer (to suit their purposes as well.) Even Palin, when confronted with Limbaugh’s on-air use of the R-word. (intellectually disabled), defended it as “satire”. (I respectfully but wholeheartedly disagree.) My original point (to Harshglare) was that both sides cross the line sometimes, and I think that point is still valid.
I don’t know what Rush prefers to be called but I think he is great at commenting on politics, the media and that he uses satire very effectively.
I am not trying to be disagreeable, but it is just not true that Limbaugh is as bad as Maher for instance. Leftist have been getting away with their bad behavior for a long time – now that they can’t hide anymore and more people are calling them out – now libs want us to agree that both sides are equally bad – it just isn’t so. And I am not saying that because I am a conservative – I am saying that because the facts back me up.
I appreciate that you and I can have a civil discussion about these things. A blessed day to you!
And a blessed day to you as well!
Only your mom has the power to sip a soda and cause leftists around the world to spontaneously combust! Ya gotta love it!
Your mother’s speech was great … She gives us “We the People” a voice at the table and more than that she gives us Hope that America will have a tomorrow but she also makes us understand that we must stand-up and say enough is enough …
I just love your mom’s humor and tenacity. She even caught Rove’s ear and caused him to squirm a bit. If he was any kind of gentleman, he would have laughed along with her joke about him but no, he had to insult her about her governorship. She’s done more for Alaska than he would have ever been able to do for a toupee commercial! Fred
