For Moms: Weekend Edition – UPDATED2





Good morning everyone!

It is Mother’s Day weekend and my kids are taking me and my mom (their Grammie) to play golf.  It should be a lot of fun as we are a lively and honorary group.  There is lots of smack talk that goes on and money always changes hands (often many, many times during a round of golf).

My kids think their Grammie and Papa walk on water which is as it should be.  Their Grammie is a feisty lady who is everything a kid could want for a mom and a grandkid could want for a Grammie.  She is that mom that did it all when I was growing up. She has a very bohemian vibe to her. She isn’t liberal (at all, no global warming) but could be considered one of the original crunchy conservatives.  She gardens, grows her own food and has always done it organically. She has never liked plastic stuff and prefers natural woods, wool, and cotton.  She re-purposed and recycled before it was popular. She was the mom that let us make a mess with finger paint or baking cookies and didn’t freak out, she played cowboys and Indians with us in our teepee she set up in the living room and she always decorated the house for every holiday possible.  She loves yoga, being out doors, 60′s music and Elvis.  She has a wicked sense of humor and that twinkle in her eye like she is up to something even when she isn’t.

She taught my brother and I to be adventurous and creative, have a strong work ethic, that nothing comes for free, that we can do anything we set our minds to if we don’t give up and that love is unconditional. She taught us that character and integrity matter, forgiveness is gold, laughter is healing and family is forever.  She instilled in us a sense of living frugally even when we are blessed with a lot, that freedom isn’t free and that we live in the greatest country on earth.  She taught us to love God, serve him and serve others.  She volunteered more hours that I can count at school and church.  Our house was the popsicle house. It was the house that everyone hung out at. Everyone was welcome at any time, for any reason.  My friends loved my mom. They could talk to her about anything.  We had several kids from families that were going thru a hard time live with us off and on when I was growing up.  She would never turn anyone away.  She actually drove a Pink Rambler and then a Jeep Wrangler for awhile when I was growing up. That was her style.  Now she is pining for a convertible VW Bug.  I have a feeling she will get one.

She was also strict, had high expectations and demanded responsibility.  It took me 22 years to figure out why we never had a full, intact yardstick in our house when I was growing up.  I really wondered that when I was little. My mom was so handy I found it weird that they were always broken.  He, he he… it was cause that what she used to whoop on us when we got in trouble.  It took me two decades to figure that out.  My brother and I were a handful (we were her’s after all ) but man did we have fun as kids!

One of the biggest lessons I learned from my mom was that there was no such thing as victim mentality.  You see, my mom is deaf.  She has been since she was 5 years old.  She has 30% hearing in one ear and 0% in the other.  Growing up, my friends thought she was from England and my mom would play along for a bit and talk about the Queen, lol.  She can read lips like no one I have ever seen and we used to stir up all kinds of laughter when we would go to the Country Club or Church and she could tell me what was being said across the room, my, my my…

So this weekend’s blog is for my mom.  She reads here everyday but is too busy to comment and doesn’t like disque (who can blame her on that).  Mom, I love you and if I was playing golf on Sunday (I’m only driving the cart), I would totally kick your butt!

On to the news:

Bristol hearts Hillary and I agree…

Ha, ha, ha… go Peter

Bristol gets some love

Why do they act so surprised?…

I’m kinda glad… I like him as Sheriff...

This is a novel idea…

I hope he wipes the floor with Craig James…

He always tells it like it is…

Why yes he is

How convenient for him…

Geez, I thought anyone could see this...

Tell us how you really feel?…

Some Levin awesomeness…

UPDATED:

Politico honors Sarah and her mom Sally for Mother’s Day (it may be the only day Politico honors a Palin/Heath).

 

 

Here is audio of Palin’s robocall for Deb Fischer…

I don’t feel bad… the rest of the world is part of the reason for Obamamania that swept in 2008…no sympathy for their disappointments…

Anyone sends me this… I’m banning them on twitter…

Wealth for me but not for thee

I guess it is at least good to know… doubt O will let us touch it…

Piping hot please!!!

Love that he went with the title… and yes, it is an everything concern…

UPDATE 2:

Gov. Palin posted a a Mother’s Day message on her Facebook.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mama Grizzlies out there! I include my own Mom in that list. I love and thank you, Mom! Here’s a link to Bristol’s blog post about a beautiful video made by a mom telling the story of her blind son’s birth and life.

 

Have a great weekend!!  Happy Mother’s Day everyone!!  I’ll update if anything major happens. (Look Mom, no hands!!! he he he)

    Craig James is ok. Certainly not a liberal he played for a team I really hate being a Bills fan. I am rooting for Cruz especially since Schmuckabee and Perry support Dewhurst.

    • Firelight

      No, Craig James and his son falsely accused Football Coach Mike Leach at Texas Tech and got him fired.  I will NEVER like Craig James and his sissy boy of a son.

        Didn’t know that. I only remember from the Patriots he was one the last great White running backs when I first started following football.

    I wish Bristol Palin would ditch Nancy French. Nancy French is a No Good Romney shill and there is something about Bristol blog that doesn’t sit well with me. Nancy French is ick and she will burn the Palin’s in the end. I was right about FoxNews and I was right about Bachmann.

    • LS as guest

      I agree with you, Michael.

  • http://twitter.com/CoolChange80 Michael

    Be skeptical of Nancy French. She definitely does not have the Palins Interests at heart. Bristol should ditch her fast. She was a Mitt Romney astroturfer that is working with Bristol. Don’t like it one bit.

    • Firelight

      She co-wrote Bristol’s book.  I think she is generally OK.  She claims to be a strong Christian but I am with you Michael on the loyalty and trust factor.  I just don’t think it is wise to fraternized with Romney shills for any reason if you are a Palin.

    THE BEAUTIFUL YOU

    We place great emphasis on a narrow idea of physical beauty.

    In an American history discussion group, the professor was trying to explain how, throughout history, the concept of “beauty” changes with time. “For example,” he said, “take the 1921 Miss America. She stood five-foot-one inch tall, weighed 108 pounds and sported a 30-inch bust, a 25-inch waist and 32-inch hips. How do you think she’d do in today’s version of the contest?”

    The class fell silent for a moment. Then one student piped up, “Not very well.”

    “Why is that?” asked the professor.

    “For one thing,” the student pointed out, “she’d be way too old.”

    Good point — she’d be way too old. But beauty is a peculiar thing, for it means something a little different to each of us. And it isn’t always about appearance. Sometimes beauty is a quality that softly shines from inner depths. And you may actually radiate more inner beauty than you realize.

    An elderly woman noticed that her granddaughter felt embarrassed by her freckles. “I love your freckles,” she said, kneeling beside the girl and admiring her face.

    “Not me,” the child replied.

    “Well, when I was a little girl I always wanted freckles,” the grandmother said, tracing her finger across the child’s cheek. “Freckles are beautiful.”

    The girl looked up. “Really?”

    “Of course,” said her grandmother. “Why just name one thing that’s prettier than freckles.”

    The little girl peered into the old woman’s smiling face, aglow with kindness and love. “Wrinkles,” she answered softly.

    The physical beauty of youth will fade. But the beauty of a spirit, when nurtured, can grow forever.

    Good morning,

    In case I forget, Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers.

    Based on the twitter feed, it appears that Governor Palin’s speech went down well at SALT 2012. Huge crowd to listen.

    At least one person has a video and contact has been made.

    Check out the following feed:

    (NBC reporter was snarky, trying to push she did not do well. Attendee who tweeted said she gave a good speech, agreed with her, very entertaining.)

    • Firelight

      If you get video of Gov. Palin’s speech, I’ll post it.

      I saw all the twitter feeds.  Thanks for linking those.  Did you ever see what kind of applause she got at the end of it. I never read anything just that her speech was good.

      • John_Frank

         Did you ever see what kind of applause she got at the end of it.

        No.

        If you get video of Gov. Palin’s speech, I’ll post it.

        See this comment:

        http://palin4america.com/2012/05/for-moms-weekend-edition/#comment-527265619

        The tweet from Mitch Ackles includes a link to a you tube video of a brief snippet of her speech.

        You can see that the hall was packed.

        Exodus2011 (who comments at c4p) has sent a tweet to pdmckenna (the attendee I referenced) who says he has a video of the entire speech, plus the Q&A asking if he is going to post it, etc. No response yet.

        Personally, I thought the tweets by Anthony Scaramucci, which I referenced in my linked comment, tell the full story. Clearly the Governor was a hit with the audience and was well received.

        P.S. While speaking to a largely male audience of successful individuals, she is reported to have said:

        Palin, to raucous laughter from the audience: “Behind every successful man is a surprised woman” #SALT2012
        https://twitter.com/#!/pdmckenna/status/201112419358089216

        That tidbit speaks volumes.

  • Akabosan

    That was / is a terrific tribute to your Mother, Mrs. Firelight.

    A long time ago, a good friend who was a refugee from Czechoslovakia told me; “If you want to know about a woman, look to her mother.”

    It seems both of you are blessed. And may God continue to bless you and your families, that they may multiply and populate through all of the world.

    Happy Mother’s Day to you and yours, Firelight. You do good work!

  • cookboy

    I remember very well the fragmented yardstick problem. Those were such happy times!

    • Firelight

      LOL!!!

  • RefudiateGOPe

    I remember the broken yardstick very well.  I also remember how mad it made my Mother when that dang yardstick didn’t hold up to the task.  Thankfully, yardsticks of the 50′s weren’t made as well as those of earlier times.  I can also remember having to go out and cut my own switch.  It didn’t take more than one switching to figure out that smaller wasn’t better. 

    We, too, had a pink Rambler.  Before that, we had a purple Dodge.

    Just got back from praying in front of a local abortion clinic.

    ICYMI, many of those “clinics” ONLY do abortions on Saturday mornings and have packed schedules. It’s a marketing issue since pregnant women, usually under economic and social pressure (of course), are only free to spend half a day on Saturday mornings destroying their own children.

    This is part of the invisible abortion landscape that we all live in…

    • Akabosan

      I was called to give remodeling estimates to a clinic once.  Shucks, I did not know what kind of “clinic” it was, until I was inside and I could feel the cold damp darkness even inside of me.

      I spent time in Vietnam and drove taxi on weekend nights on the west side of Orlando before going in there.  I have known fear, but never felt it, like an ache, the way I did inside of that place.  

      I decided to not “let my light so shine” in that building again, nor would I subject any of my folks to those evil vibes.

      God help us all.

    Anthony Scaramucci is the Founder & Managing Partner, SkyBridge Capital. Author of The Little
    Book of Hedge Funds & Goodbye Gordon Gekko. Tufts/HLS grad. CNBC contributor.

    His firm is behind the SALT conference. He is the head honcho and chief bottle washer. Sarah Palin spoke on Friday to a packed audience at the SALT 2012 conference.

    Follows are a series of tweets involving Mr. Scaramucci concerning the Governor’s attendance and speech.

    His two tweets were in response to this tweet.

    Mitch Ackles@HFPR
    Sarah Palin speaks at #SALT2012 Conference | http://youtu.be/wQV7TFS6234 via @Scaramucci #hedgefund

    (Mitch Ackles is Global President of the Hedge Fund Association, Media Contact for Hedge Funds Care and CEO of Hedge Fund PR. His firm organized and managed the event. Yes the youtube video is a small snippet from her speech.)

    The first tweet:

    Anthony Scaramucci@Scaramucci
    @HFPR the Governor did a great job and represent a part of American Success, Life and Culture that makes the country truly great.
    https://twitter.com/#!/Scaramucci/status/201331698619793408

    The second tweet:

    Anthony Scaramucci@Scaramucci
    @HFPR comments from attendees on Gov Palin: not at all like the media portrayal. Very Talented.
    https://twitter.com/#!/Scaramucci/status/201331845693059072

    I would encourage those who use social media to spread these tweets far and wide. When re-tweeting people may want to add the hash tag #SALT2012.

    Bottom line: Ignore any snark. The speech was a success. She changed perceptions with a very important audience.

    P.S. I stand with Sarah Palin.

    • LS as guest

      GB, 

      I’ve actually just listened to that whole video–and you’re losing it!

      The guy is a total Barack Obama fellow traveler.  Talking about how morally wrong it is to let the market decide anything, how terrible that Republicans are trying to limit the voting franchise by having people demonstrate that they’re eligible to vote, how mean and nasty and wrong anyone is to want to put an end to anchor babies getting citizenship, how we have to have a nationally imposed ‘citizenship curriculum’ that talks about the tension between individual freedoms and inequality of outcomes, the need to institute universal ‘national service’, etc..  

      He’s a friggin’ communist!  (Hint: he repeatedly refers to himself as a ‘progressive’.)  But like silvered tongue Leftists do, he conflates the idea that people should help each other with government control of everything as the means to do that.  So people who simply here him talking about patriotism and the morality of doing good for others get sucked right in with a full Marxist program.

      Please go out, get some fresh air, and come back posting once you’ve cleared your mind and can see through this charlatan!

      Yours,

      LS

I guess Sarah hit it out of the park again yesterday in Las Vegas….and the head guy saying ” she is not at all like the media portrays her, she is talented”..of course we all know that….I guess it won’t hurt to stay home since Rmoney is leading by 8 points. Obama’s muzzie friends are all upset that he came out of the closet…..They will really have to get all the dead voters to the polls to win this one…maybe another law suit against Arizona will get the spotlight off gay marriage..

    Happy “mama grizzly” day to all the moms out there! :)

  • section9

    BTW, I think I know what Paul might be up to: he wants to be in a position to “unify” the Party behind Romney to make the glide path for Youngling Paul easier in 2016. He’ll make a speech in prime time in exchange for “releasing” his delegates to Romney (who, I believe because of the Unit Rule, will be bound to Romney anyway).

    However, any agreement with Romney he makes will always be suborned by the Bushies and their will to Power.

    What Palin is going to do over the next 45 days is going to be vital. Her activities thus far have been important. I’d be happier to see her actually out in the field. That would be a shot across Romney’s bow, letting him and the Establishment know that she will not yield to them and their propaganda machine.

    • LS as guest

      I totally agree, section9.

    • Firelight

      Based on my communication with the Paulbots here in CO, I would disagree that this is Paul’s plan. I would also say that his delegates and coordinators would never go for it.

      • section9

        You make a GREAT point here, but his infiltration of the delegates then makes no sense if the Unit Rule governs all and points to Mittehns on the First Ballot.

        Paul’s authenticity has always been his hole card. When he dumps that, it’s over for him, so you might have a point. Paul’s people would have nowhere to go but Palin, however.

    This question might be out of topic but has anybody noticed that Sarah Palin has been absent from his commentator job in Fox News lately? Hmmmm, am wondering why..

    • LS as guest

      Yes, I noticed it a week ago and pondered whether it helps her avoid being pressured to endorse Romney before the convention.  Of course, we’ve still three months to go on that.

      But if her obligations are tied to appearances, by sweeping into NYC every couple of months she can cram a lot of appearances in on many of their different shows.

  • OldPat

    Happy Mother’s Day to all women whose love and sacrifice have earned them the right to be called ‘Mom’.

    For those women who have not yet earned the appellation of ‘Mother’, may our Maker bless you with the ability to conceive if you so choose and the wisdom to make a good choice of when and/or if you do.

    Being a parent is like nothing else you will ever experience.

    Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there in Palinland……..Well. it was a sunny 101 yesterday in the great desert Southwest….could reach 106 degrees today…Inside under the cool refrigeration…no worries…..Our pastor’s sermon this morning was about love for Christ and love for one another….very up-lifting…Sarah hasn’t called yet, but its Mother’s day so she is probably getting breakfast in bed…served by Piper……This coming week should be interesting..so of the black ministers are really upset at Obama for his stand on gay marriage…Look for a facebook post from Sarah….maybe even a schedule for campaign appearences…Have a great day and play nice.

    Happy Mother’s Day to my mommy…who while in California is taking the family to DISNEYLAND! Cool, I’m doing Disney World and Disneyland a month apart. New record. ;) (BTW, this isn’t the first time it’s happened. We did this when I was 3. Perks of being a Florida resident, and aunt’s timeshare being 1 mile away from Disneyland)

    SO FREAKIN’ EXCITED!

    But Happy Mother’s Day to Palin World, which could be better than Disney World or Land. :)

    Mothers Day in England is earlier in the year but, as in
    the US, we see it as a time to celebrate family values in a world where too
    often the cheap and the tawdry reign supreme…indeed such values are often
    deemed old fashioned…yet they often crop up in the most unexpected
    places…who would have thought that a schoolgirl and her pet dog, two young
    opera singers and a hymn singing choir of Welsh schoolboys would dominate the
    public vote in Simon Cowell’s Britain’s Got Talent 2012 final
