WooHoo We Kicked Ass Wednesday!

Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow!

Very good morning peeps!   OK, so we won some battles last night but we are far from winning the war.  I still feel more energized and hopeful that the Tea Party is alive and well.  I’ve seen it in the delegate process in my state and across the country as things unfold but I needed to see it at the ballot box too… and we did!  Woo Hoo!!!

I’m off this morning to get my MRI so that should make my day interesting.  I’m just glad to find out how big and where this thing is.  I’ll deal with how to rescue it later.

For now, I’m doing the happy snoopy dance at the conservative muscle that was flexed yesterday.

News roundup:

That’s power baby…

Lugie concedes

I’m just going to keep repeating the title… it makes me happy…

Trounced!  Really, really trounced

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

Boom! Take that

She is so desperate for attention…

Um… he was pretty clear in some of the debates on what his position was…  or so I thought…


Good for him…  now this is really moving forward.

Um OK… so I guess I’ll burn my Bachmann 20–not ever at any point shirt… drat…

And now people wonder why conservatives don’t feel that “special” bond with him…

Oh they can try… not gonna let them…

Great interviews by Bannon with Stacy Drake and Tony Lee…


Not gonna lie… I would have voted against this Amendment for several reasons but the chief one is the ban on civil unions… the devil is in the details… this particular Amendment gives too much power to the government…

This looks interesting…

A must watch….

What is this deliciousness?  Ooooohhhh I can’t wait…

Looking forward to more speeches like this from conservative victors…


OK folks, have a great hump day!!  Drink a cup of tea :)

    Some folks visit Palin4America for the camaraderie, some to express views some are ‘just passin’ through.’

    Yesterday while doing some of my study and reflection, I found this, and realized it is why I visit P4A daily; “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” – Phillipians 4:8

    Thank all y’all for doing and being and sharing in that way.


  • Akabosan

    Mrs. Firelight, you rock.  For a long while I have realized “The attitude at the top works its’ way to the lowest level of any organization.”  To the extent we have any organization at all around here, you and Sheya are at the ‘top,’ and set the tone.  (see post above)

    Today you just out did yourownself, gal.  You must be fired up.  

    Thank you.

    Now, I am going to take your advice, and have that cup of tea… (with a shot of Irish of course).


  • section9

    Great take on last night, Firelight. Now here’s hoping Palin follows it up with more of these.

  • Emily Baxter

    What a night! I loved the results coming in and I have to say, if Palin isn’t relevant, then why the heck Mourdock won last night? Hm?

    I am ready to chill this week and then next week, I’ll start working. Parental units promised to pay me minimum wage if I help them out. Better than nothing, since Barnes and Noble hasn’t called me with a job offer. 😛

    I don’t know what I’m going to do with all this free time. Guess I’ll go clean the bathroom. It does look disgusting. My sister Sarah hasn’t been cleaning it. Too busy chasing boys I think. 

    Remember, I heart you! 

  • hrh40

    Drinking my morning decaf green tea now.

    Soon off for my second cup of black decaf with a shot of milk to cool it off and save my teeth from staining. :)

    Prayers for your MRI today, Fire. And that the rogue stone will soon be gone.

    Just have to give cudos to Bristol for keeping on speaking out.  Obviously her words are having an effect, as evidenced in the meltdown of the leftist so called pro women folks.  Bristol: Dance baby Dance!

  • Whitney Pitcher
    • Whitney Pitcher

      As an interesting note, Santorum endorsed her opponent recently. 

    • section9

      You beat me to the punch, Whitney.

      Momentum, momentum, momentum. I do wonder what the holdup is with Teddy Cruz down in Texas. I had assumed that she would do an endorse down there, unless there’s something going on with Cruz that we don’t know about.

      I suspect that speech on Friday will be a sledgehammer to the Beltway Establishment.

      • Whitney Pitcher

        It could be an issue of timing. She endorsed both Mourdock and Fischer a week before their primary. I know Cruz’s opponent is Perry’s Lt. Governor (Perry endorsed him), but I don’t think Palin’s friendship with Perry would affect that endorsement.Palin’s obviously more aligned with Cruz than Dewhurst. It could be a matter of maximizing momentum. Texans like Palin, so I don’t think there would necessarily be anything holding her back as far as that is concerned. 

        • TSM_Admin

           I also think Sarah is scheduling her endorsements for maximum impact.

          • hrh40

            I also find her to be much more targeted this go-round.

            As in, zeroing in on the Senate.

            Last go-round, there were House endorsements, governors, attorneys general, and a few last-minute senators, i.e., O’Donnell and Angle, which were late, late endorsements.

            Rand Paul was the biggest senatorial last go-round wasn’t it?

            Rubio never wanted her, so she never went all-out for him, though voiced support when directly asked.

        • section9

          So we should expect a Ted Cruz endorsement about a week to a week and a half out of the primary?

          I wonder if she’s actually going to do a go-by in Wisconsin? It looks as if we’ve got the momentum there.

  • Emily Baxter

    You know when I said music speaks to me? This song stands out in my mind and I’ve been playing it over and over again. I think I know why.

    • Akabosan

      Thank you Miss Emily.

      Always remember that no matter how many turns your experience may take…

      You will ALWAYS be that girl.


    • blackbird

       Nice song

  • OldPat

    Tho you think this request passing strange, please give it some thought.

    Regardless of party affiliation if your senator and/or congressman has been in office over ten years, please vote him(her) out and give them a fighting chance to save their soul.


    Wow…what a great night. Great round up Firelight as usual. :))

    Very proud of my fellow Tea Partiers ♥ but there’s much more work to be done. 
    Firelight, thanks for the link about Mitt’s new bff….I bookmarked it and don’t want people to forget who his friends are.

    Mark Kirk…..what can I say. I did not vote for him…his central politics still rub me the wrong way….a Scott Brown type of way.
    I’ve work Rehab nursing for over 20 years now and Mark’s come a long way….with a long way to go. I’m very pleased his cognitive areas weren’t affected….just physical.
    Not to toot my own horn, but Rehab hospitals, all the people with it and the patients themselves really do perform miracles….looks like Mark kirk will be another to add to the list.

  • Akabosan

    Mr. Limbaugh is taking a victory lap and describing the victory and strength of the Tea Party in yesterdays doings.  If it is possible to find (his first hour) it would make a great item for tomorrow.

    Regarding the left and where it is today in this country, it occurred to me it is something like this:  “The gang of Chicago politicians used to swimming in the non-Olympic size cesspool where they can do laps, are finding they have been dropped into the middle of the beautiful Pacific Ocean size consciousness of the American people where although their minds may not be changed or their bodies cleansed, their ideas will be washed away, scrubbed on the coral and swallowed by the real sharks, the tea drinking gentile American People.”


  • section9

    BTW, do you know why the libtards put a picture of Palin front and center on one of their ads?

    Because they know it draws clicks like madness. 

  • Akabosan

    Someone please pass this article about the bionic woman in England on to Mrs. Lipstick.


  • OldPat

    After seeing the headline, my poor brain was puzzled and uncomfortable with the revelation that the White House is requiring pregnant visitors to register their unborn child as a separate entity before going on a tour of the facility.

    Q:  ???

    A:  Since the brain dead and the graveyards may not give BO the margin he needs to complete our transformation, his buds are now going after the unborn vote.

    Ahh!!  My brain feels so much better knowing that.  Doesn’t yours?

  • blackbird

    Good afternoon everyone.


    I am told that the muscles of the face are capable of over 250,000 different combinations of expressions. And one of the most useful is a smile. And though I’m a fan of kissing, I appreciate that smiling is still one of the best things I can do with my lips.

    Sometimes I hear or read something that is so true I know I will never forget it. One of those gems is an observation from Fulton J. Sheen, who said, “A smile across the aisle of a bus in the morning could save a suicide later in the day.” Over the years, I’ve come to realize the magnitude and truth in that statement. People NEED the healing medicine of the heart that just a smile, even from strangers, provides. In fact, we all need it. And for some folks, that medicine can save a life.

    One psychiatrist puts it like this. Dr. Thomas Malone, of Atlanta, Georgia, says, “In my practice at the Atlanta Psychiatric Clinic, people sometimes ask me what psychiatry is all about. To me, the answer is increasingly clear. Almost every emotional problem can be summed up in one particular bit of behavior — it’s a person walking around screaming, `For God’s sake, love me!’ Love me, that’s all. He goes through a million different manipulations to get somebody to love him.” (Thanks to Dr. James Moore for the quote.)

    I think he says something I need to hear. He is saying that at the core of our being is a need for someone to care. And if that itch is not scratched, we go to great lengths to satisfy it.

    But I’ve noticed something else, too. It appears to me that some of the healthiest people around seem to spend less time trying to scratch an itch to be loved, and more time looking for people to reach out to. These are the ones who are most likely to smile across the aisle of a bus. They understand that everyone is fighting some kind of battle, even if they hide it well. And if they were to express their personal life mission, it might include something like, “I try to always love the people I encounter along life’s path.”

    They never say they can’t make a difference. They never say they have nothing to contribute. They always know that, even if they have nothing else, they can always give a smile, spontaneously and sincerely. A smile may not seem like much, but it can be a warm blanket on a cold night. And for a while, anyway, if can soothe the itch to be loved.

    My smile may not save a life, but it might save a day. And if not, it’s still one of the best things I can do with my lips.

      Hi Habu.  It is good to see you.

      Many years ago a friend of mine asked me why he never heard me complain about aches or pains or problems.  My answer to him then seems to fit your piece above and would be my answer today.  “Whenever I am more interested in being of service to someone else and do that diligently, I do not have time to have distress of my own.”  OWTTE

      I hope you are having a super week there in your tropical paradise.


      • blackbird

        Thanks Akabosan, yes, its been raining quite a bit about a week now and I love it but I feel for the visitors but it rains here only for a short time then blows over I guess that’s the advantage of being very small.

        I do not know if you know this Akabosan:

        The young George Washington and his ailing brother Lawrence resided in this historic plantation house, also known as Bush Hill House, for two months in 1751.  Barbados was the only country ever visited by the future  “First Father” of his country and Bush Hill House the only house he ever lived in outside of the continental United States. The visit is a little known but very important chapter in the life of the then unknown 19 year old  man, who would go on to become, as later described by Light-Horse Harry Lee, “first in war, first in peace, first in hearts of his countrymen”.

        • Akabosan

          Though, as you know, I have access to all knowledge via the Akashic records, sometimes I rely on you and others to remind me of specific details, facts and data.  :-)

          Thank you.  That is obscure knowledge that I hope you get to share on a quiz show worth many dollars pesos or pounds…  What is it ya’ll use there on your luscious tropical isle?

    Hey y’all. Great night for our side. Loved it. Interesting that none of the network morning news shows (at least that I can find) mentioned the WV dem primary where the prisoner totally humiliated the dear leader. From what I can gather, WV has a closed dem primary, so there were no organized GOP shenanigans to taint the outcome. Gov. Walker likewise had a great night. Went to bed happy.

    Was gratified about the gay marriage vote in NC (my home state), not because the gay thing is high on my list of issues I lose sleep over, far from it, but because I hope it signals that the democrat thing there is over. Between failed Gov. Perdue, who isn’t running for reelection and the implosion of the NC dem party, coupled with passage of the gay marriage amendment, I hope to see my home state turn back to red. In fact, a very prominent dem judge from my hometown — I went to school with him — has a daughter who was indicted for some kind of fraud when she worked on Perdue’s gov campaign staff. Big scandal. Breaks my heart is all that does.

    Firelight, hope the MRI went well and they locate and get rid of that little sucker. I’ve had enough of those things to last a lifetime, and I’ve been getting two a year. I’m hoping now they’ll lower it to an annual event. Don’t know if all of them are like mine, but even with weapons grade valium and ear plugs, you lie perfectly still for 30 min. with what sounds like a jackhammer right next to your head with a dye IV. Just the most enjoyable thing ever! And I won’t even go there re what they cost.

    Well, back to work. Just remember the tea party is dead and irrelevant, and apparently democrats now think their own voters are racists. You just can’t make this stuff up.

    Y’all have fun.

    • Firelight

      Bean I completely agree with the North Carolina  vote. I am happy that is shows that this hold the dems had on that state seems to have been broken and over even if I personally would have voted against it.

      I’m laughing at your most perfect description of an MRI.  They tell you to lay still for FOREVER and then every hair on my body is convinced it needs to itch and of course you can move.  It’s all psychological but it is still torture.  Thankfully, they sent me in feet first so for some reason that makes a mental difference even though I’m still all the way in that damned tube.  The dye is a whole another animal. I can see why they ban all liquids for 8 hours before. 

      Now I get to go have a CAT scan :)  I’m blaming Col. Mustard with the rope in the library…

      • Akabosan

        Still goin for the Voodoo cures?

        I’m tellin ya…  Oh never mind.


        • Firelight

          No, I used good old fashioned homeopathy to flush that baby out. I used a cocktail of olive oil, lemon juice and epsom salts last weekend for a flush.  The MRI just confirmed I had no stones left :) 

          The CAT scan is because they saw a mass on my liver during the MRI that they want to check out.  It is unrelated to my stone issue.  My doctor doesn’t think it is anything because I had an ultrasound on my liver and abdominal area before surgery which is when they found the stones to begin with and my liver was healthy and normal.  But, I’m all for checking stuff out.  If it turns out to be something then I’ll figure out what to do holistically.

          Thankfully, in Colorado we have a lot of doctors that use Western Medicine but focus on a lot of holistic approaches too.  They usually let you decide which direction you want to go.  My kid’s pediatrician is holistic first, western M.D. second. 

          • Akabosan


            Ah, and Faith, I am sure.  When we reach out and touch the hem of that robe, our Faith makes us well too.

            Hopefully you have enough of the epsom salts left to have a nice bath too.


      • Bean Counter

        I’m woefully claustrophobic so I just keep my eyes closed and never realize that I’m in the tube. I have to do mine lying on my stomach with my face in one of those hole things. They give me chocolate, but that’s a pretty lame treat to make up for the torture! I had to have a CAT scan prior to starting radiation, and it was a piece of cake compared with the MRI. Just hold your breath for a few seconds and it’s over. Nothing to it.

        Time for about 45 min. in the massage chair, my favorite piece of furniture! ha. Keep the faith, pal, you’ll get it done.

  • senator20526

    Morning all…..Just hope they dont put Firelight’s MRI on the internet….never know about those death panels…/s Another bright sunny 99 degree day in the great desert Soutwest…going on up to 106 on Sunday…Well, here is a bit of news…Sarah did not call yesterday and neither did Todd, well I will wait until they call…..I’m sure it is just an oversight, probably busy packing and touching up that barn-burner of a speech to be delivered in Vegas on Friday…Nice to hear that Todd and Sarah endorsed Deb Fisher in Nebraska….You guys have a great day and play nice.

  • Akabosan

    Someone’s headline really should read:

    Gay legislation goes down in flames all over the country.

    There it is “out.”
