Watercooler Wednesday

Good morning everyone!

Today I don’t have much to offer.  I was up late with my 8 year old doing homework.  Bless her heart, she is going to be tired today.  I will be downing coffee all day to compensate and hopefully she will make it thru the day OK.

I should have just kept my kids home from school for the morning and let everyone (including me) sleep in but nooooo because I’m not that kind of mom.  Oh… why can’t I be that kind of mom… my bed was sooo comfy this morning, there is snow out and I’m still tired !!  LOL!

There seems to be a lot of news to discuss these days :)…


Not a bad write up… I could have tweeked it a bit…

Not a big Shush Walshe fan but she did a good job here

Love, love, love Mark Levin

Levin tells the truth… it isn’t Obama destroying the Republican party… it is the establishment… can I get an AMEN?…

It’s all an illusion

Well call the national guard because my 5 year old will make a gun out of a tulip… seriously people this is getting ridiculous the little boys in my son’s preschool class all play weapons. I say weapons because some days it is a light saber, some days it is a sword and some days it is a gun but the scariest days are when they unite as a posse of ninja turtles…  assault turtles…  at 5 years old they are a serious threat…

I won’t question the motive, I just think it sets a good example and if I lived in Texas then I would be happy…

Pretty damn sure this lady was glad she wasn’t in a gun free zone…  thank you officer…  now someone freaking explain to be why this poor woman was left alone with this man to begin with and then forced to stay in the room while they were handcuffing him?

Our government is stupid so it is feasible that one day these people will find a way to beat them…

Sorry Egypt but I think you are stuck with them…

Go Ted!  I see both Arizona and Oklahoma also courting some of these companies… good for them…

Lookie what Teddy is also up to… this is very, very good… and he is supporting this too…

Uh oh


Sorry but if you come into my house illegally… you don’t get to decide what “tone” I use when I ask you to leave and IF I’m feeling generous enough to come up with a plan that will make you work so you can stay… don’t tell me what words I can and cannot use especially the name Reagan… telling me I can’t say his name is just fighting words…  and I do think we can learn from his mistakes so there…

Does anyone actually believe we will get secure borders before our President grants amnesty?…

Now this I approve of… Mark needs to be heard more and set Hannity straight in the process…


Have a great day today!!

    I bet Roooobio does.

    Great, great roundup, Lady. Thanks a bunch and a great day to all :)

    Good morning all.  I wish that when I was a youngin’, my Mother was like Firelight.

    Lots of sever weather moving through here today.  The weather radio has been going off about every 15 minutes since 3 a.m.  Tornado warnings, watches, and severe thunderstorms, not exactly late January weather.  Temps were 70 degrees yesterday, 60 degrees now, but it will be 15 degrees by overnite.

    • Guest

       Stay safe.

  • Guest

    Thanks Firelight.

    Excellent news that “The Great One” will be appearing on Hanutty. I fantasize about him appearing opposite dinosaurs like Tokyo Rove whom he already told to get off the stage or corruptocrat Sununu since the Rules Change at the convention. Pass the popcorn, please!

    You are a great Mom, Firelight. I’m sure that your little one with treasure the memory of your staying up late to help her with her homework for years, especially when she finds herself repeating her performance with her own little one.

    Stay warm and you could take a nap before the little ones return from school.

  • c4pfan

    Hey, I don’t know how you do it!  Thanks for the round up.

    Ted Cruz is showing it how it should be done and Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio need to pay attention!

    • deTocqueville1

      Exactly! On both counts!

    Good morning!

    “Sarah’s fearless resourcefulness gave her broad appeal.”

    Chuck Jr., “Our Sarah”, pg. 132
    The special election is set to replace our new SoS John Kerry in the Senate. The primary is April 30 and the general election is June 25. Mass Gov. Deval Patrick is expected to name Kerry’s interim replacement today and the expectation is that it will be Barney Frank.

    Scott Brown is apparently leaning toward entering the race early next week.
    Could someone explain to me what the purpose is of submitting legislation (like term limits) that has no chance of going anywhere? Is it simply to get pols to go on the record?

    • Firelight

      Yes, I think that is exactly what proposing that type of legislation is. I think it is to get pols on the record and bring the idea/issue to the mind of voters.  If you keep doing it, eventually it may catch on with a very fed up electorate.

    • Lipstick

       Thank you for your quotes from “Our Sarah”. I always enjoy reading them!

    • senator20526

       Barney got left out….he named a former aid..

  • deTocqueville1

    For a tired Lady that was an amazing roundup!  Cruz is great, like Palin he ‘takes it to em’ hard and has fun doing it. The Senate just won’t be the same stuffy old club.

    This ‘amnesty’ will be a great farce if it proceeds, just like everything the DC Repubics as Mark calls them, set out to do. They will concede on everything Obama wants and get nothing in return. It will be the ‘debt ceiling’, the deficit reduction, etc. in replay.

    I never watched Soledad except through vids on RS and elsewhere but her attempt to look serious with that perpetually furrowed brow was clearly just an indication of a profoundly befuddled person.

    Hannity’s ratings are going down quite dramatically so his friend Mark has answered his distressed call. You are right it will bring Mark to the TV audience and it will broaden his message.

    At least Walshe admits the media can’t help themselves over Palin. Sarah makes news 24/7 and it is always exciting. 

    • BostonBruin

      I think it’s become clear already why Sarah put her energy and influence behind Ted Cruz (instead of trying to oust Orrin Hatch). It’s also obvious why the GOPe was furious when Cruz beat their guy (Dewhurst) in the primary.

      This may also be one of the reasons why she’s been rather quiet lately. She doesn’t want to take attention away from Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, etc.

  • Pete Petretich

    Looks like Sarah’s on the move and Bibi’s on the move, too…

  • LS as guest

    Oh, and what the heck is an 8-year-old doing with homework that keeps her up late at night?

    • Firelight

      Roman empire… 

      combined with the fact that she and her brother have swimming after school so we don’t get home until almost 5pm and then I have to fix dinner, they needed baths and she needed me to help her with some of it so we underestimated how much time it would take and I was reading news from the day for the news roundup :)

      All in a days work  :)   She woke up really well and happy so that was good.  I think I am getting old, lol!

      • senator20526

         You would fit in real well……we have a lot of old people here in Arizona….lol

      • LS as guest

        I’m sure you’ve got it under control.  I just hate the thought of an 8-year-old slaving over what–her times tables?–at the kitchen table for hours into the evening!

        • Firelight

          me too!   I’m not big on little ones having a lot of homework.  This project was bigger than even the teacher expected.  I’m sure it will be tweaked next year to pair it down and likely assigned with a week to complete.

          While she does attend a Charter school that is academically demanding this was VERY out of the ordinary.

          We did make it fun though and now we both have Roman names, lol.

  • Gelston

    article that Sarah Palin is finished (WAPOST) has over 5000 comments. 

    • IsraeliCojones

      Irrelevant /s

  • BostonBruin


    Well, I was wrong about Barney Frank.

    William Cowan has been selected to fill the temporary Senate seat being vacated by John Kerry. Don’t know a thing about Cowan except that he was Mass Gov. Patrick’s former chief-of-staff.


    Hopefully Levin will be on Hannity’s show the same time the “architect” is on… THAT would be “must see tv”.  ♥

    • blackbird

      I hope Sean advertises it in advance so I can tune in.

  • Whitney Pitcher

    Good morning all!

    I hope you’re able to catch up on some rest, Firelight.

    I’ll make a deal with Senator Cruz. Texas can have the banks linked to gun manufacturers in exchange for him as our Illinois Senator.

    By the way, I found video of Pres. Obama skeet shooting:

    • lonestar

      Sorry, you can’t have him. You can have Cornyn instead.

      • Whitney Pitcher

        Not a fan of Cornyn, but I take him over Durbin any day.

  • deTocqueville1

    Wonderful Senate Committee presentation to-day on the gun issue.

  • blackbird

    Have a great day Firelight, thanks for the news round up.

    Everybody agrees “our current immigration system is broken and we need to fix it.” the solution is FIRST!!! to secure the border FIRST!!! there is no need to elaborate, discuss, contemplate etc. secure the border FIRST!!! then talk about amnesty o_0

    • MaMcGriz

      Yes, please secure the border and then immediately act to restore the rest of our 14th Amendment protections. At that point the problem will begin to remedy itself, and most people will be shocked at just how swiftly it will happen.

      I was watching Uma Pemmaraju interviewing a female radio host today and she said how she was in a bank and they asked for her I.D and there were 2 men on her right and when they asked for their I.D they did not speak english and was escorted to a special processing desk to continue their transaction.

  • IsraeliCojones

    A message to Gov. Palin:

    I’m pretty sure it hasn’t escaped you, Dear Guv’, but the GOP already has its nominee who is already running, and dude looks a lot like Obama: no record, “I, me, mine” type, and a faux Conservative, on top of it all

    With all due respect, you’d better get your Grrrr on and your assault gun loaded very soon, because, from me to you, all of this is intensely depressing, and I’m not even talking about you: I’m talking about country.



    • pete4palin

       Ditto to the max!   The establishment really thinks conservatives lost it for them last election. They are doubling down and will go to whatever lengths it takes next go around.  Not necessary in hopes of winning the general election,  but to have the primary season end with New Hampshire.    Like the French before WW2,  they have entrenched themselves in a hardened defensive position against what ever conservative may come. 
      So what is the answer?    Glad you asked.
      Like the Germans, Palin can simply go around them by forming a new party. The establishment will just sit there by themselves while destiny moves on.  Oh poor poor Washington establishment Republicans, nobody to beat up this time? Oh so sad.

    a couple of pekingese walked into my office, here under the kitchen table,  and almost had a heart attack when they saw “Going Rogue” on my  book shelf.
    oh, i see you got HER book , they snidely commented. Absofrickinlutely i exclaimed. For the past 4 years obama has wiped the floor with the party i use to be member of. the only victory they had was in 2010 and that was largely due to Sarah, who was subsequently ostracized by them.
    Reason number  2956 to support Sarah. 

    4 paws up for Sarah!

    The Bill of Rights is the collective name for the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution. These limitations serve to protect the natural rights of liberty and property. They guarantee a number of personal freedoms, limit the government’s power in judicial and other proceedings, and reserve some powers to the states and the public. While originally the amendments applied only to the federal government, most of their provisions have since been held to apply to the states by way of the Fourteenth Amendment.

    Earlier today former Speaker Newt Gingrich comes out against Rubio, McCain immigration proposal.
    Gingrich: Don’t trust Rubio, McCain on immigration

    In the meantime, over the weekend:

    Rep. Paul Ryan says he thinks ‘sequester is going to happen’

    But Ryan demurred on a potential fight with Democrats over the continuing resolution, which expires March 27, and would force a government shutdown if it’s not extended.

    “No one is talking about shutting the government down,” Ryan said.

    Meet the Press host David Gregory asked Ryan if he didn’t view it as a bargaining chip in dealing with Democrats.

    “We’re not interested in shutting the government down,” Ryan responded. “What happens March 1 is spending goes down automatically. March 27 is the moment you’re talking about, when the continuing resolution expires. We are more than happy to keep spending at those levels going on into the future while we debate how to balance the budget, how to grow the
    economy, how to create economic opportunity.”


    So, “no” to using the debt ceiling and “no” to using the continuing resolution as a lever to compel the the Democratically controlled Senate and the President to agree to a plan to balance the budget.

    Instead, Ryan proposes that we “debate” how to balance the budget.

    Talk about “useless.”

      I wouldn’t trust any of them.

    Don’t forget to join Chuck on the porch tomorrow for the first guest submission!  Hey, lipstick or firelight, you should put in for one!  Love the stain glass he created.
