    OMG, I am in love with you Bristol Palin…lol

    • Jeff

      Buy her some wine coolers and take her camping. Works every time.

    Commemorating? Really? To quote Sarah Palin, “Is this all a game to you and your ilk? To quote her again, “Cut the Drama. Do your Job. Americans are sick and tired of yet another ginned-up crisis.”

    • Richard Smit

      And her Mother is right!

      • otlset

        She is rarely wrong on issues of governance as far as I can tell.

        • Jeff

          She’s good at quitting that’s for sure.

            It’s one thing for you to be ignorant…It’s another to stay that way! Your comments prove what you are.keep posting …the more you say the more you make a fool of yourself. We are all getting a laugh at your insults. What goes around comes around.

          • Jeff

            said the woman who is way too old to be wearing a sleeveless dress. how about you exercise a little restraint in the wardrobe dept dear.

          • Jeff

            i’m also surprised a good christian like you would espouse the views of a middle eastern religion. dont make jesus angry at you carol! we know what he’s like when he gets mad.

          • EmilyW

            Kind of funny you sit around commenting on Bristols blog all day if you hate her so much. shouldn’t you be in line for food stamps or something? What’s even better is when someone calls you out on choosing to stay ignorant about American politics you go for personal attacks like a true liberal. I’m sure I’ll hear some sort of attack about me or my beliefs but at least I am aware of what’s going on in my country. By the way, you got a little coolaid dribbled there on your chin :)

          • Jeff

            Congrats you almost used all 3 standard comebacks.

          • 1MiddleRoader

            Now, that’s just nasty. I think the pic looks great.

          • Jeff

            She started it!

          • 1MiddleRoader

            Don’t make me send you both to your rooms!

          • Jeff

            LOL!

  • Sue B

    I wonder how many Americans realize this.

  • Richard Smit

    Great Post Sarah! your Family are perfect people!

  • Joseph Ritter

    Another good thing of the government shutdown is that it delayed Obamacare!

    • 1MiddleRoader

      But it didn’t delay O-care. That’s the irony.

    I wish I could shut down my payment of taxes to our overlords in big government, but if I tried of course they’d come after me and whatever assets I own to seize them, add penalties, and of course threaten federal prosecution if it happens again.

    Yes master, I will scrape the funds up for you somehow. Please don’t harm me!

  • LMA

    Who the heck “commemorates” a government shutdown?!

    • moemoll

      Me, for one.

    • Jeff

      Idiots like the Palin’s and the jackasses on Fox.

      • disqus_lJapfzCIUh

        Who are you Jeff? The Obama Cleanup crew? A Union Thug? A Freeloader? Getting paid by the Rat Party to insult people? Part of the Saul Alinsky Lucifer Gang? You seems to have a lot of time on your hands… you are everywhere…Go suck the Harry Reid and Obama’s g–…You know your nasty words are just that…nasty…and …ugly to boot….is that why your face is covered a la MuslimsGarb?

        • Jeff

          haha ha ha ha ha

          • disqus_lJapfzCIUh

            Laugh all you want “Cleaner for Obama”…We know who you are…even MSNBC the paid for with our tax money mouth media for Obama couldn’t even show how it was to sign up under the Obamacare Nightmare…they couldn’t even get through….now that’s funny….

          • Jeff

            It must frustrate you to lose so often.

        • otlset

          I think I hear his mom calling “Oh Jeff! Come up from that basement now, dinner’s ready.”

          • Jeff

            Conservatives have 3 comebacks….that’s all their tiny brains can accommodate.

      • VL123

        the leftist trolls are here.

  • Jeff

    And yet your mother loved being part of government. Maybe you two should open a soup kitchen.

  • otlset

    It’s only a partial government shutdown, consisting of “non-essential” services. I like that description, “non-essential”. Think about it.

  • David

    The Federal Government should be Shutdown until they Learn to Balance the Budget and actually Pass a Budget … something that they have Not done since Obama has been in office.

    • Jeff

      The republicans inherited a surplus and we see what they left us. Try again.

  • 1MiddleRoader

    I loved Palin’s snarky little comment on Cavuto that govt non-essential personnel should not be on the payroll. I can understand a lay person not understanding and frankly, it’s unfortunate terminology on the part of the govt. But Palin was governor- she should be familiar with the concept. Unlike most businesses, which have set hours, most govt offices have to have some sort of “skeleton crew” 24/7. The govt agency I worked for provides support to troops, etc. worldwide, so it needed to have several 24/7 “watch offices”. Those are manned by “essential personnel,” but the the non-essential personnel does work every bit as valuable; it’s just not that time-sensitive. Non-essential personnel can call in sick (with some restrictions). Essential personnel, if they’re sick on their scheduled work day, have to find an appropriate replacement. If not, the person who already worked their shift has to stay on duty until a replacement is found.
    Although Fox News doesn’t use these designations, Palin would be non-essential there, and by her own pronouncement, should not be paid.
    For example, if Palin is scheduled to be on a Hannity segment, and at the last minute she changes her mind, or the satellite connection is lost, it’s not that big of a deal. Hannity can let another guest talk a little longer, or fill the air time himself. But if Hannity gets sick at the last minute, it’s a much bigger deal- The network would be scrambling to find a substitute host, or they’d have to run a repeat program. So he would be essential personnel.
    So, with one glib little elitist statement, Sarah dissed many govt personnel who work hard, just not on weekends, nights , holidays. And, even those non-essential folks can be called in at all hours, if their particular language or skills are needed in a crisis situation. (I know, I’ve had to do it many times.)

    • disqus_lJapfzCIUh

      What does “Non-Essential” mean? Just that…No matter how important you think you are…”Non-Essential” means that the government can work and work very well without you…if you would try to run a company like the government does…how long do you think it would last.?…NO Tax Payers would help you unless, of course, you are one of the Obama’s Cronies…

      • 1MiddleRoader

        No, no no! Perhaps I did not explain it well. Essential really means essential in event of an emergency. Example: There was a huge snowstorm on the East Coast in 2009. Almost everything was closed for 2 days. But the government still has to perform essential functions. I knew the storm was coming, so I packed extra clothes and food and drove to work. I ended up staying there 2 nights. Now I didn’t work the whole time, b/c the other essential personnel came in also, so we worked the same shifts; we just didn’t leave the premises b/c we knew we’d never make it back. The non-essential personnel got a few days off work, like most of the rest of the area. Like most other workers in private business, they came back to backlogs of work.

      The fat has to be trimmed, or we’re all doomed.

  • 1MiddleRoader

    If there is a government shutdown….who will enter my child in a clinical trial?

  • Kristy Patullo

    Nice! Haha I also like the comment from the guy in
    the comment section who said, “my wife”. Hahaha Day 3 and the world hasn’t
    ended. Maybe now people will finally realize that the Govt. is not all that
    important. A smaller, smarter Govt. is what we need.
