Finally Friday!

Good Finally Friday Morning P4A Kids…

Got word from Firelight.  She seems to be doing okay…but has a “rogue” stone rumbling around.  Will need some more tests.  She named it “Sarah.”  Continued Prayers.  I noted she was pretty active on the Twitter last night…so that is good news!

Well Miss dumb dog…came face to face with a herd of deer just passing through yesterday.  Her and a doe were in an intense stare down for about 10 minutes. They were about 5 feet apart.  My dog slept through the whole thing.  I will admit that at times…the doe looked a little upset and made a few moves towards the dog.  She had a kid in tow.  I tell ya…it is interesting watching the wildlife.  I consider myself pretty lucky minus putting down the cat this week.  Anyway…I am almost done with my tour of duty here…with only one left to go next week with a deaf dog.


Onto the Headlines:

Wanna bet this will be ignored like everything else?

Well Gee…let’s not be creative or anything and try some NEW ideas.  Would hate to see that marketing department have to work!

Wanna bet this will be ignored like everything else?

Leaders LEAD! Loser’s in a bogus leadership role Steal someone else’s platform..thus history tends to repeat itself.

Because Every Life has a special purpose and path….Happy Birthday George and Jon Will!  h/t Janne

Being your own person…perhaps?  Keep on keeping on!

Obama’s 2012 will be known as the year of the FAKE!

When in doubt…yank out that RACE CARD Juan!  Blasts from the past…Michelle…you are a hero!

I just love those…”unnamed sources.”  Does one put that on their resume?  Qualifications:  Unnamed Source.  Does it pay well?

Just a girl and her God.

Finally…because it is a really happy dog’s life….

    The GOP alienating Sarah Palin and her supporters is a very stupid move. If Sarah Palin is not give the Best Speaking Spot in the Convention it will show the GOP is not unified.

  • Michael

    I don’t pledge allegiance to the Republican party,especially one that pisses on Sarah Palin and her supporters.They believe that Conservatives will fall in line and that Palin only has a few hardcore supporters that really care.

    • cookboy

      They don’t get that we pledge allegiance to a constitutional republic.

  • Michael

    There are more Palin supporters in the GOP than there are Romney supporters or Fat RINO Supporters.

    Praying for you Firelight.

    Can we have like a TAM club for those of us called Trolls on C4P? Not that my ideas would ever be labeled as such there by posters. ;0

    I have to lament for just a moment, how much I miss the old C4P. I used to love to go there, see new and old friends, debate, have laughs and fun, talk about what the Guv should or should not do, AK politics (way back in the day), ethics charges, big foot, wigs, dodge a few canned goods lobed by the Guv and just plain have some good clean fun. I learned much about politics, other areas of the country, and was inspired by the struggles and triumphs and service of so many posters there.

    It is disheartening and is no longer a site that is built with “friends in fox holes” like it once was.

    I have not been able to find a replacement for the old C4P community anywhere on the net and I don’t think I ever will again. This site helps but it is not very active in the comment section. Instead, I have been filling my blogging time with other things, which is good, but I do miss the good old days and mourn the loss of my old friend, C4P, which will never come back to life again.

    • ErinMC4

      I didn’t comment a lot at all, but I enjoyed reading all the banter and such. Hasn’t really been the same since RAM and Joey left.

      • section9

        C4P was fine for awhile, but there was a lot of pent-up frustration that blew up after Palin announced that she wasn’t going to run.

        Now you’ve got a lot of people who want to deal with the realities of what Palin appears to be doing vs. a lot of people who appear to be dealing with Palin’s refusal to run this year by ginning up some sort of Secret Palin in their minds that Palin is working on: the whole Reconsideration faction.

        That site needs a stronger editorial hand and Ian Lazaran and Stacy Drake aren’t providing it.

        But in reality? What is going on is the result of lack of leadership from Palin herself. There’s a vacuum of direction right now from her; her supporters are sort of waiting on what direction she plans on taking. I mean, we know she’ll end up supporting Romney in one fashion or another. However, her main effort will be directed at the Senate, because the Bots don’t appear to want her around.

        Which is fine by me. Romney is one of the most toxic people in politics.

        That said, the classic problem with Palin has always been an unwillingness to staff up and communicate objectives from the top to the troops down below. She had this problem last summer which was one reason she went nowhere fast. She may be having the same problem again, although I suspect that she’s waiting on things to play out with Romney and Paul in the lower 48 before she starts campaigning.

        I’d like to see what kind of blowback and how much legs the Breitbart series has before seeing her start rolling herself out for the summer. There’s a big political vacuum before the conventions that she can fill. Let’s see what kind of leadership she brings to the table this time.

        • Bill589

          I believe, possibly, Sarah is not giving us much information because that will give her enemies information too.

          So I plainly trust her. And I ‘sign’ most of my comments ‘SP2012′ because I know I will continue to support her in 2012.

          She is the one person who got me involved in politics for one reason:  She gave me hope.
          And I will always be thankful for that.

          There are a few others, Walker, West, and now I have a ‘brain freeze’ as to that blond woman governor fighting even against Obama to control her states border with Mexico.

          But now they are too few. I strongly doubt Sarah is done with politics. But if she doesn’t do it, I hope another constitutional conservative leader rises up. Our nation needs one right now.


          • Akabosan

            Jan Brewer is the governor of Arizona and the lady to whom I believe you referred.  There are other up and comers, folks younger than you and me who have presumably gotten it and seem to have ‘it.’  You’ll not find them in the Lame Stream Media unless they are perceived to have erred.


    • cookboy

      Twitter is kinda sorta.

    • senator20526

       I go there to read and comment sometimes….You are right, too much bickering…I skip a lot of comments and just read Nancy and some of the others that make jokes…I think it was better when Sarah was more active with her book tours and vacations…Not a lot to talk about now..

      • hrh40

        A lot of lecturing goes on now.

        I probably fall into it, too.  :(

        Hard not to respond in kind sometimes …

    • Riley4Palin


      I left C4P quite some time ago because I saw the direction that the site was headed.

      I was so grateful to hear about P4A being created because it is my favorite place to come to talk all things Palin and politics.  Firelight has done an amazing job of keeping it fresh, funny, and current.

      In regards to the activity here, I can only speak for myself.  After Palin decided against running, my passion for politics has waned a bit.  When she makes news, I love talking about politics and show up more often because we have a very dynamic group of good people and intelligent conversation, yet fun and snarky.  That is everything I look for in a blog and this is the place to be.

      Personally, sometimes I just cannot take the negativity of politics and focus on much happier things in my life.  It can be a total downer if you spend too much time analyzing and rehashing this stuff.

      Hope to see you post more often. I know you like to banter so I’ll be happy to join in. :)

  • OldPat

    As some of you know, I have been a student of the human condition for many decades.  Indeed, I am fascinated by this business of reality, delusion and rationalization.

    Under the heading of ‘Know your enemy’, I strongly suggest you read Chris Mooney’s new book ‘The Republican Brain – The Science of Why They Deny Science – and Reality’.  You may also want to familiarize yourself with Jonah Goldberg’s rebuttals of Mooney’s claims.

    Tho I live in the middle of nowhere so I can avoid people like him, I have decided to make an exception in young Chris’ case.

    Hey, Chris, come on down to the Carolina Lowcountry so I can meet you.  I’ll let you feel the bumps on my head, and you can tell me who I am and what I’m thinking.

    And when you’re done, I’ll return the favor and tell you who and what you are.  Indeed, I won’t even need to feel your head to do that.

    Before you board your flight down, Google the phrase ‘useful idiot’ and combine that with the phrase ‘deluded fool’ so we can use those two phrases as our starting point.

    For those of you who may think I’m being a little harsh towards young Chris, let me point out a couple of things.

    This far-left zealot sells more than a few books, and the claptrap, tripe and pseudo-science he calls ‘scientific consensus’ is being pushed by the LSM as real science.

    Oh, and one other thing I should point out.  As Goebbels was to Hitler, young Chris wishes to be to BO, and he has taken it upon himself to provide BO and his buds with the rationalization and justification for the mass genocide of we bitterclingers should BO ever gain sufficient control of our political system.

    Only when you understand the monstrous evil we face, can you understand why WE can not allow Mitt Romney to be our standard bearer in the presidential election of 2012.

    As WE begin to understand that appeasement didn’t work and that it’s time to fight fire with fire with Momma Grizzly by our side, the GOP intends to give us a wimp dressed in Faded Glory jeans driving a new pickup truck.

    I guess that’s the GPOe’s modern-day vision of a knight in shining armor riding a white horse that will appeal to the ‘stupid ones’ whose vote they need so they can keep scamming us.

    Over the decades many of our black citizens traded the southern plantations for the ghettoes of the north, and their new masters became the Democrat Party.

    Well wrap your brain around the thought that we bitterclingers are the GOP’s version of our black population.  Take a moment and let that one sink in.

    Now, are you ready for the clincher, my friends?  As long as the PPC and the LSM can keep the different segments of our population fighting each other, they can share the spoils of the shell game they are playing and don’t have to worry about WE the PEOPLE banding together to fight them.

    Divide and conquer – A combination of political, economic, social and/or military strategies that aim to gain and maintain power by breaking up a larger concentration of power into segments that individually have less power than the one implementing the strategy.

    Girl, I hope you understand the risk we are taking.  If you ask us to vote for another ‘gutless wonder’ in 2012, there may not be a 2016 in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    Are you sure you and your political advisers are using your heads for something other than a hatrack?

    Are you certain you are forcing yourselves to think outside the box we call the two-party system?  After all, it’s all you’ve ever known.

    And lastly, are you forcing yourselves to think the unthinkable and giving it due weight?


    Crue, as far as those contempt charges against Holder….I’m not going to hold my breath.
    This should have happened months ago and no matter what Issa says, I don’t expect it to happen anytime soon.

  • Emily Baxter

    Hey Lipstick, you know I love ya. I too miss the old C4P, but I got to do what I got to do. They still like me cause I’m young and all that, but no way should they be calling you troll. NO FREAKIN’ WAY. 

    I would like to see more of you here if possible. I’ve got a lot of aunts on here, every now and then come on to just to say hello. Aunt Lipstick, come on, it’s gonna be okay. I have faith. :) 


    • Lipstick

       Hey! Glad to see you here this AM! I will try to be around more!!

      • OldPat

        May I join Emily in hoping you are?
        And may I ask who called you a troll at C4P?

      • OldPat

         Please disregard my second question. I already have my answer.

    • OldPat

       Agreed – to both paragraphs.

  • jaliranchr

    Just waving hello.

    • Crueladev

      Welcome Jaliranchr!  Nice to see you here!

  • senator20526

    Morning all….a pleasant and sunny 93 degrees today in the great desert Southwest…..Stock market is taking a dump today in response to the horrid unemployment picture NOT painted by the LSM.. Obama has claimed he created 4.2 million jobs in the last 24 months…that is hard to believe but the LSM is going along with it….I guess if you count all the green jobs created with the billions for taxpayer dollars and not count all the green job layoffs due to can come up with any figure you want….look for unemployment to be under 8% at election time…Have a great Friday and be safe.

  • Whitney Pitcher

    Happy Friday all!

    Thanks for the roundup, Cru, and I hope Firelight is healing well.

    The whole Julia thing has to be one of the most ridiculous things Obama has done as part of his campaign. Beyond the whole “women can’t do anything without the government” vibe, the fact that the graphic artist who designed it didn’t give “Julia” a mouth indicates just how much the Obama administration wants to speak for women (and all people in general) rather than allowing her to speak for herself. 

    Since it’s an historic anniversary for Margaret Thatcher, I wanted to mention I rented “Iron Lady” a few weeks ago. When it comes to her political career, the film was reasonably fair. However, they were disrespectful in having the whole movie shown through the lens of Thatcher’s current dementia. Beyond the disrespectfulness of that point, doing it in that way takes up too much of the movie when they could have focused on more of her political career. Overall though, I would recommend it, especially since it’s available at RedBox now for cheap. Meryl Streep does a good job in portraying Thatcher’s mannerisms, voice, etc, though of course, nothing holds a candle to the real thing.

    • Riley4Palin

      Regarding the re-election campaign so far (give them time, its early), yes, it was the most ridiculous thing so far.  But don’t forget who we are talking about?  Remember the “brains” thinking it was a good idea to have Air Force One do a fly by of NYC? 

      How bad is “The Life of Julia” blowing up in their smug faces?  Sooooo bad that the Morning Joe crew of butt kissers all mocked it today – even Mika, Mike Allen, and jagoff Donnie.  Like some have already said, it is one thing for the MSM to cover for Obama in everything they do, but it is entirely different when the Right takes the narrative and shoves it down ALL their throats and leaves them gasping for air by relentless mocking and total embarassment.  Thank God we will be able to count on Malkin, the “BIG’s”, and a few others to stay on offense all campaign season and make them all the laughing stock. 

      Thanks for your review of “Iron Lady.”  I haven’t seen it yet, but plan to rent it as well.  I am in a different mode now though regarding movies.  “Hunger Games” kicked off summer blockbuster season for me and next up is “The Avengers” this weekend.  Meryl will be on the backburner for awhile. 

      • Akabosan

        As I mentioned, not too long ago in another post, or on another site, this is ‘The Gang Who Couldn’t Shoot Straight.’  It seems for every step they take forward, two are taken back.  Lee Atwater is probably up there somewhere stirrin the puddin.  LOL


    • Akabosan

      Thank you Whitney Pitcher for the review of the movie.  I had pretty much decided to wait for a better representation of the marvelous Iron Lady, but with your recommendation, I will see it.  I will not ‘run out,’ but I will see it.


    • Akabosan

      Mrs Thatcher will always be remembered, by me, for her “Don’t go all wobbly on me now George” admonition to Mr. H. W. Bush.  

      ‘Twas perhaps the beginning of the era of the strong conservative women we are beginning to see now in this country.


  • JanneMyrdal

    Ok, so donated $50 to SarahPac for my 50th year ( ok, not enough I know, but will as always keep on giving! smile)) So, for those who get mail from SarahPac, I got mine today, so I will take the photo as a bday greeting. I can do that right??  LOL!   Game ON!

    • Crueladev

      Happy Birthday Janne!  50 don’t look a day over 29! :)

      • Bill589

        My wife was 29 for at least three years.
        I thought it was a woman’s math thing.

        But now she’s been 39 for about four years.
        I guess maybe women just age differently than men.

        (Her weight never fluctuates either – even when pregnant and twice her normal size!
        Yep – women and men are more different that I originally thought.)

    • Akabosan

      Happy half a century, but shucks, gal.  You aren’t even up to the speed limit yet.  😉


  • LS as guest

    Ha ha!  Two days late, just noticed the photo of the guv in the war room.

    Thanks for the chuckle, Cruela.
