An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Sarah Palin’s husband jumped to her defense Thursday after an upcoming book claimed the Republican politician snorted cocaine off an oil drum and had a premarital fling with an African-American basketball star.
“The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin” by Joe McGinniss — who moved in next to Palin’s home in Alaska last year as part of his research — comes out Tuesday, as the Tea Party darling ponders whether to formally seek the Republican presidential nomination.
“This is a man who has been relentlessly stalking my family to the point of moving in right next door to us to harass us and spy on us to satisfy his creepy obsession with my wife,” husband Todd Palin said.
“His book is full of disgusting lies, innuendo, and smears,” he added in a statement carried by several US news media and political blogs.
“Even the New York Times called this book ‘dated, petty,’ and that it ‘chases caustic, unsubstantiated gossip.’”
Citing unnamed “publishing sources,” the National Enquirer said McGinniss claims in the book that Palin had “a steamy interracial hookup” with Glen Rice less than a year before she and Todd Palin eloped in 1988.
Ya know what? I don’t care! I don’t care if she had a one night stand with Santa Claus. Kind of shoots down that “Tea Party racist” nonsense, doesn’t it. I don’t care if she snorted a bit of coke, or got stoned and danced naked in the woods. It makes not one bit of difference to me, one way or the other. And it shouldn’t matter what Sarah Palin did in her youth to anyone else either. Name me ONE person who didn’t do something stupid when they were young! I know I did a LOT of really stupid things in my younger years. So what! I am not the same person I was then, I grew up. Mrs Palin grew up too, and she has been a positive voice.
Do I think she should run for president? No, I do not. I think she is a strong voice for conservatism, and should use her voice to unite folks for whoever becomes the Republican nominee.
McGinniss has managed to make an ass of himself. Typical for a libtard stalker.
A former head of Saudi Arabian intelligence and ex-ambassador to Washington, Turki al-Faisal, has warned that an American veto of Palestinian membership of the United Nations would end the “special relationship” between the two countries, and make the US “toxic” in the Arab world.
The warning comes as Washington is scrambling to avoid a scenario where it alone casts a veto in the UN security council against the Palestinian bid for recognition of statehood, which is expected to be formally requested next week. The US is putting considerable pressure on the Palestinians not to submit the request, and on Britain – the only other permanent member of the security council that has not publicly supported the Palestinian request – to also exercise its veto if necessary.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t much care being threatened by a guy named after a butt ugly flightless bird, or anyone else for that matter. I see this as a line in the sand, and as far as I’m concerned, he can pound that sand!
I suppose they’re going to turn off the oil spigot if we don’t comply with their wishes? Fine. The price of a gallon of gas will shoot up, food prices will go sky high, and there will be peasants with pitchforks and torches at the door of the White House, demanding we drill right here, right now! We have plenty of oil right within the borders of the good ol’ U.S. of A. and it’s past time we make use of OUR resources! Yeah, fine…keep examining that “green” nonsense. Someday, it might even be worth it, but it ain’t there yet, and that should be obvious to anyone with half a brain.
There should NEVER be a “Palestinian State”! Why? Because if they give in on this, then the next step will be to totally destroy the State of Israel, and that is completely unacceptable! As a matter of fact, I believe all the land that God gave to His people should be returned ASAP! That is a LOT of land y’know. And I think the Israelis have been more than tolerant towards the evil that has plagued them.
How Did America Come To This?
by J.D. Longstreet
Americans of my generation are not as surprised, as a lot of Americans these days, at the state of our nation. We saw this coming as far back as fifty years ago. Look about you today. THIS is what the glorious “sixties” has wrought.
The Hippies, the Flower Children, the Pot Heads, the whole scraggly, long haired, dope smoking lot of them – now run every consarned thing!
We are just now beginning to pry them out of our government, but the damage they have done to America will take generations to repair.
Remember their communes, and collectives? They took those socialist ideas right into our state and national legislatures. Now we are paying the price.
Read the rest here.
This is definitely not the same country I was born in. I’ve watched the changes. I don’t like the changes. I’m one lone voice, joined by millions of other lone voices, we can turn the tide. But as J.D. says, it won’t be over night. Returning to our roots is going to take a lot of hard work, determination, and it does NOT involved ‘compromise’. There can be NO compromise on principles!
Contrary to what the liberals insist, this country was founded on Judeo-Christian values. Thanks to the fecklessness of those now in power, we have lost our way. Until we return to those values, we will continue our decline into the cesspool of socialism.
The head of Nashville music instrument company Gibson Guitars says federal officials have asked to meet with owners of the company next week, following a raid last month.
IMHO, the feds have a LOT of explaining to do. I haven’t heard that they’ve raided Martin, so this looks very much like a political target to me.
Federal officials have declined further comment on an ongoing investigation.
OH, I just bet they have! Considering the fact the India has been doing the exporting, and it’s those woods that seem to be at the center of this whole fiasco. Once again, the Obama administration looks like the incompetents they are.
The Tale of Two Jobs Plans
It’s been one week since President Barack Obama announced his latest “stimulus” plan, and despite a cross-country road show aimed at selling his proposals to the American people, the commander in chief is finding that his message of more taxes and spending isn’t hitting home. Meanwhile, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) has outlined a markedly different way to help the U.S. economy get back on track.
According to a new National Journal/United Technologies poll, only one in six Americans think that the President’s plan will decrease unemployment “a lot,” while one-quarter doubted that the plan would affect unemployment at all. Then there are the 39 percent who think that the President’s policies have made unemployment even worse (twice as many as those who say he’s made unemployment better). Now The New York Times is raining on the President’s parade, too, reporting that Democrats are “balking at Obama’s jobs bill” and “say there is little chance they will be able to support the bill as a single entity, citing an array of elements they cannot abide.”
