Need For Change Monday!

Morning peeps!

How is everyone?  Thanks for all the prayers.  I’m still getting better.  I thought I would be much better by now and I am somewhat better but geez who would have thought…

Thanks to Cruela for keeping the ship afloat.  This is such a great community and I love the vibe that we have here.  I’ll leave the history to Cru since she is so very good at it and I love reading it!

So today the “panel” decides if they are going to rescue my rogue stone or not. As Cru mentioned, I’ve named it Sarah.  I consider the “panel” the same as the GOP establishment. They want to pretend it isn’t there and whatever we do, we can NOT set it free.  It’s funny how such a small stone can cause so much havoc…

Headline news:

First, we are amongst celebrity here… look at this fine mug

I’m looking forward to this speech tomorrow… I hope we get some reports…

Check out this Julia… I like her…

McCain is still defending his Palin pick… kudos to him…

Oh please mainstream this idea… please, please, please…

Another coming bubble?

And you so, so, so want to be VP…  (she isn’t hiding it well).

I have the theme from the Lion King playing in my head…

I bet this leaves a cozy, welcoming feeling with the French… so is this guy a pauper?

So was there a recent time when France wasn’t socialist?…

Hmmmmmm… not impressed with the list

Oh look… he wins most of Iowa…

Oh look… he won most of Maine…

Oh look… he won most of Nevada delegates too…

Funny, I thought this was already a done deal…

Say what?…  This doesn’t surprise me… the fact that he is saying on TV surprises me…

So what happens to the people that don’t like to follow the rules?

Yeah… whatever… it’s more like he bought it…

Yes, we must sell the morality of the free enterprise system to win the war but can Romney do that???

Well lookie here… maybe the tide is slowly turning…

You think so?…  shhhhh don’t tell him about the ad below…

New ad from the RNC:



Have a great day everyone!!

    Good morning and good week to you, Mrs. Firelight.  Unlike Mick Jagger, it is good to know you will be leaving your rock group, the stones behind soon…

    Here is a comprehensive (as near as I can tell) look at Facebook and privacy: 


    • LS as guest

      I’m only partly through the Tony Lee piece (looking forward to Whitney’s), but I love, love, love that Tony is on our (the guv’s) side.

      Also, A Brooks is of course correct about defending the morality of free markets, but he’s in the think tank bubble, used to talking to DC wonks.  You don’t want to open your argument to voters with the word ‘morality’ and he’s not the right guy to be either making or advising on popular arguments.

      How would Gov. Palin handle it?  She’d lead with real-world examples of what makes free enterprise ‘right’, leaving it to the voters to nod their heads as they internally register it as an argument for what’s moral without preaching it so clinically or directly.

      • LS as guest

        Oops, meant this in response to Tencole’s post below.

        • Akabosan

          Always good to hear (see) from you L S as guest.

          In fact, sometime ago I tried to point you to a Jeffery Lord article over on American Spectator that I was sure you would enjoy.  If you do not read him regularly I recommend that you take a look.

          I hope you have a terrific week.


          • LS as guest

            And you as well, Akabosan.

            Now I’m embarrassed though, as I recall you offering the link in response to my alerting you to a new White House Insider report from Ulsterman.  I know I marked in my mind to go back to it, but I’m not sure you did.  I know Jeffrey Lord offered a tour de force recently with his piece on ‘President Barack Carter’.  Perhaps I came to it from your direction?

            • LS as guest

              *I did*

              • Akabosan

                I am glad you found it.  I like your description “tour de force.”  



    Ya’ll must know by now that there are 4 pieces up at Breitbart regarding Sarah….2, that’s right, 2…by our own Whitney.♥    Great pieces all, check them out. 

    Wow, that keynote speaker spot at SALT is mighty impressive. I wonder if she scheduled this back when everyone thought she was running?

    It’ll be very interesting what will happen with Ron Paul and his delegates come convention time. hmmmm

    I really don’t give a crap what McCain says about Sarah any more. I lost respect for anything he has to say long ago and until he publicly denounces Schmidt and Walker, he’ll never get it back.

    Newt, Newt, Newt…..guess I’ve been burned…again. If Sarah comes out and officially endorses Mitt I’ll be totally crushed.

    Here’s some Allen West love ♥….enjoy

    • Akabosan

      Whitney Pitcher really did her homework for her articles (mentioned above).

      The information she provides in the article “Who Is the Real Sarah Palin?” even gets into facts and data.  Some of us serious rednecks are and have been aware of Mrs. Palin’s talents, but now that it is out in black and white (and very well produced btw) it will be even more interesting to see the detractors squirm and twist.  

      Thank you Whitney Pitcher.


  • Akabosan

    Nemesis, “the western equivalent of karma.”

    Good read and observant if not also prophetic.

    The large brown one as top link? Well, he is Master and Commander of the two Labs, and all else in his domain. He’d be a fine president. As to Miz Whitney, she’s really come into her own as writer and researcher. A finely polished gem.

    • Firelight

      He is really handsome and debonair Cookboy!!

    “…let us live to make men free.”


  • Firelight

    I am working on getting the Breitbart pieces up. I have to take my kids to school and then I can work on it. They are REALLY good and need stand alone posts of their own.

  • TSM_Admin

    Great to see you back, Firelight!

  • Emily Baxter

    Good morning everyone!

    One secret about me: music is my life. I breathe it. How? Well, I play flute, piccolo, fife, and working on guitar (yes Firelight, that one with the pink sparkle!). Music also speaks to me through lyrics. In fact, I have this playlist on my iPod called “Palin-list” (get it? Playlist, Palin-list. You get it) It helps me get through tough times. It’s inspired by and for Gov. Palin. “She fights!”

    So let me share a couple of songs from that playlist. Then I’m going to Breitbart and looking at the articles that Big Sis (aka Whitney), Ms. Drake, and Mr. Lee wrote. :)

    Firework by Katy Perry 

    Naturally (Dave Aude Radio Remix/Sarah Palin Rock Mafia Remix)

    You’re the Reason by Victorious Cast/Victoria Justice

    Enjoy, and remember, I heart you! :)

  • Bean Counter

    Mornin’ y’all. Firelight, welcome home. Sorry to hear you’re still dealing with leftover medical pestilence, but this too shall pass (hopefully). Prayers still being sent your way.

    Absolute killer pieces by our Whit, Stacy Drake and Tony Lee over at the Bigs. I say this so often, but don’t think it can be emphasized enough — with the media and libs, we know they’re the enemy, therefore we can respond accordingly; however, to be carpet bombed with friendly fire is the most egregious act of cowardice there is. Just reason number 234 to despise the GOP establishment and do whatever is necessary to take them out.

    Go France. How do you say, “would you like freedom fries with that” in French? I’m sure the vast majority of the rich folks over there are packing up to leave before the commies slap that 75% tax on them. Man, talk about pooping in your economic lunchbox.

    Finally, a buddy of mine, a guy no less, asked if I’d ever seen this site: and I said I hadn’t. It’s very clever and a good addition to the overall conservative arsenal. I did a search and they are Palin friendly, so it’s worth checking out.

    Back to work. Now I have to attend to all the regular stuff that sat on the back burner during tax season. Y’all play nice and laugh at a Frenchman if you happen to run into one.

  • hrh40

    Welcome back, Firelight!

  • Whitney Pitcher

    Happy Monday!

    Cookboy, Congrats on the Gretawire linkage. You have quite the beautiful pup! :)

    Continued prayers for you, Firelight, and I hope the stones either take care of themselves or the panel rules in your favor.

    Thanks for the kind words on the Breitbart series. It’s a privilege to type alongside Tony and Stacy; they are both stellar writers and researchers. This series wasn’t meant to be stuck in the past, but to reveal what has happened as a warning to the Establishment. There are also a lot of conservatives who don’t know the full story, nor know Gov. Palin’s record. I got a tweet this morning from a college student in Wisconsin who said she was going to print out copies of the post Stacy and I did on Palin’s record, laminate them, and give them to her professors! Good for her. :) This girl seems put her passion into action. Gov. Palin inspired her to run for city council, and she won! :)

    • Emily Baxter

      Instead of studying for stat class, I read every single article in detail. You guys are awesome! It was put together well and I hope to start working on that kind of research this summer. I loved the “Who is the real Sarah Palin?” article the best. My parents don’t even know about her record. My own parents! I’m going to print out a bunch of copies and post them all over the dorm. 

      Okay, I’m going to go study now. 

  • Lipstick

    On my way to the Bigs to read Whit’s stuff. Wanted to stop by and tell Firelight to keep her chin up!!

    Also, all the Denver people here…is City Park worth the effort while I am there? We would like to have a day of roaming around in a park and having a picnic. Would Wash park be better? Confluence Park?? Don’t care to go into museums unless it is really awesome, we have great ones in Houston. Would rather be outside in the nice cool weather!!


    Not only do I get my Palin news here, I get my vacation helps here as well! 

    • Firelight

      I like Confluence for outdoor fun. The REI there is great to kick around in.  Wash Park has a fantastic grille that is one of my favorites and City Park is very classic. 

      You will want to avoid Civic Center Park as that is where Occupy Denver camps out even though the Veterans Memorial is there. I would just avoid that whole area.

      • Lipstick

         Thanks, I did not even think about the Occupy freaks, I figured they would not be in parks anymore because they would have had to go back to work or school by now…..oh, wait….

        Anyway, thanks for the tip. I will put in my notes to stay away from the area around Civic Center Park. So nice to get local info like that. The REI flagship store would be cool! Is the grille in Wash Park an eat out place? If you can eat outside I bet that is nice, did I mention how hot and humid it is here already?? I’m joting your tips in my notes!!

        We’re also going to Dave and Busters because they don’t have them here and the boy and hubby went to one when we were in San Diego and they HAVE to take me there, you know, for me…..

        • Firelight

          Yes, there is a great patio. You can make reservations at Open Table.  Lunch is my favorite because it isn’t too pricey but dinner is fun too. The food is amazing!

    • Emily Baxter

      HI AUNT LIP!

      So glad to see you! 😀 And no, I can’t offer you vacay advice. :( But I am sure glad to see you! 😀


  • John_Frank

    Good afternoon.

    Excellent roundup Firelight. Thank you.

    Sorry to read about your rogue stone; and that your insurer is not being co-operative.

    Trust that everything works out for the best.

    P.S. Excellent articles by Tony Lee, Whitney Pitcher and Stacy Drake over at

  • Riley4Palin

    Happy Monday!

    Fire – Hope you are feeling better.  Death Panel experience?  Holy Crap!  And you thought raising children and a husband were hard?!  Continued thoughts and prayers coming your way so that you get through this little added bump in the road.

    Whip – Kudos to a job well done with your Big articles!   Your research is top notch and happy to see that you still ‘season’ your posts with a good dose of passion, support, and loyalty to our favorite politician.  Since Palin is all about loyalty, she will remember those who stuck with her when some on the same team turned their backs on her when they thought it was easier to play footsie with the boys instead of playing hard ball.


    Isn’t it just “precious” when the White House pushes social issues while the Economy stays in the crapper?  Doubling the fun is France electing a Socialist over the weekend.  Who the hell wants to vacation in France anyway besides Brad & Angie?  What a freakin’ joke!  It will be a long time (if ever) that I decide to vacation in France when I retire.

    Speaking of mindless WH distractions, I can’t wait to see the MSM reports on Obama’s fundraiser this week with George “I wish middle America would love me and my movies as much as I love myself” Clooney.  It seems like the only dummies willing to part with their hard earned cash for Obama are the leftist in Hollywood and the MSM.  What does that tell you?

    I saw “The Avengers” over the weekend along with zillions of others.  First off, good popcorn fun, but a bit long.  I go into summer blockbuster movies with certain expectations (good escape, lots of action) and never expect any of them to be the best movie of the year.  They could have shortened it at least 20 minutes.  Second, why is it such a hit?  Because the producers thought it best to make it family-friendly and pro-America and avoid making it another political hit job on half of America.  Robert Downey Jr as “Iron Man” and “The Hulk” steal the movie.  Downey for his charisma in every scene and “The Hulk” for some laugh out loud scenes. 

    Only negative – the middle aged guy a few rows up from us in the middle section saving seats for like 10 people.  He was obnoxious and a jerk.  There is something terribly wrong when a middle aged white guy doesn’t offer his “saved” seats to cute families with their little boys dressed up as Captain America. 

    • Lipstick

       Perhaps it is because I lived in Europe in high school, but I have no desire to vacation or even go there. Way to many wonderful places to see and visit in the good old USA!

  • senator20526

    Afternoon all ……A sunny 94 degrees today in the great desert Southwest……Glad Firelight made it thru surgery….but using a witch doctor takes some guts…Where is Sarah and what is she doing? I was out this morning, but she didn’t call or if she called she didn’t leave a message…..waiting is really killing me..its like watching Rmoney  give an endorsement.  Sen. Richard Lugnutts is checking out assisted-living in Indiana today ahead of tomorrows primary……Don’t they know the visuals of that is not the best if you are 80 years old and trying to get re-elected…….Well, happy Monday to you all and have a great day and play nice……

    • Akabosan

      …No more witch doctors for Mrs. Firelight.  If she doesn’t pass a stone or two soon, I’ll pack up my best pocket knife and two bottles of Grand Marnier (one for her and one for me) and go out there and get them little critters myownself.  In fact, I’m goin’ straight to Wikipedia now to find out just where that gall bladder thingy is at, so I can be real close when I make that first cut.


  • Akabosan

    This is good to know…  At least when we send them to Colorado, they stay in Colorado…


  • BrianusBerkleianus

    Thanks, Firelight, for the update.

    Prayers continue!!

    God bless!

  • John_Frank

    FYI – Earlier today, Santorum sent an email to his supporters, in which he endorsed Romney.

    The email reported on the meeting Santorum had with Romney on Friday. Santorum went on to write:

    Above all else, we both agree that President Obama must be defeated. The task will not be easy. It will require all hands on deck if our nominee is to be victorious. Governor Romney will be that nominee and he has my endorsement and support to win this the most critical election of our lifetime.

    Hopefully Governor Palin will not endorse Romney, but rather wait for the primary process to be completed, to see what Paul can do.

    P.S. On Sunday, Gingrich was on CNN (State of the Union) and he endorsed Romney.
