Debt is slavery.

Palin, the author of the bestsellers "Going Rogue" and "America by Heart," drew an audience of about 750

Looks like she's at about 14:35.

I really don't agree with the whole "We can just ignore her" angle, because even if we do, there are tons of stupid people who won't.  And she will continue to infect the political climate with bullshiat that will percolate up, will become the "FW: fw: FW: FW: FW" emails you get from your annoying aunt, will become talking points on Fox, and will finally be reported in the "liberal press" as legitimate political positions. I'd rather deal with the bullshiat as soon as it comes out of her filthy sewer.

"When that money comes due - and this isn't racist, but it'll be like slavery when that note is due.

Thanks for clarifying, Sarah.

I don't think it is racist, I just think it's funny that people think saying "this isn't racist" is going to magically make a racist statement okay.

As a means to finance military ventures the British created the Stamp Act to which Samuel Adams said: "are we not reduced from the character of free subjects to the miserable state of tributary slaves?"

So you know what that means. Couple hundred years we'll be drinking Sarah Palin® Wasilla Lager.

That presumes that the people will listen, look at the evidence, and say, "you're right, she is a vapid bint!"

I won't even begin to take her seriously until she has a paying job.  No, that won't do it either.
 
2013-11-10 03:28:37 PM  
fta Conservatism, she said, is partly about "moving the poor and the underemployed out of poverty and out from the shackles of dependency on government."

And into the parks and alleys where they can starve and freeze to death with freedom and dignity

 she very well could have been the leader of the entire nation

Sarah Palin. Never Forget.

Until Republicans boo her and shun her and all her wack-o bullshiat insanity (and everything like it), rational people should never consider them an option for elected office.

Electing a Golden Retriever would be significantly less dangerous than leaving the power of the nation in a person this farking stupid and full of their own bullshiat.

FTFA: Palin got a electric reaction from the audience of about 750 when she talked about how establishment Republicans have failed grassroots conservatives.

"Remember their promise that they would do everything in their power to fight against socialized medicine, against Obamacare?" she said, as the crowd jumped, cheering, to its feet. "When it came time to stand and defund it, they waived the white flag of surrender and they threw under the bus the good guys who did stand up and fight."

Up there with "I mean no disrespect" and "the fact of the matter is" for "here comes some bullshiat".

It's a dogwhistle for the dense to signal the beginning of a new talking point. She probably learned it from Rush.

Maybe with a paying job that she doesn't quit at the first sign of fox news and accusations regarding misuse of state troopers in a family member's divorce.

[gracefairbairn.files.wordpress.com image 300x275]


Set this post to this music.

Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Atheist Force! You are about to embark upon a great crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers in arms on other fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the Christian war machine, the elimination of Christian tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Christmas, and security for ourselves in a free world.

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened, he will fight savagely.
But this is the year 2013! Much has happened since the Christmas Story triumphs of the 1900s. The secular humanists and non-religious have inflicted upon the Christmas-worshippers great defeats, in open battle, man to man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our home fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to victory!

I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory!
Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessings of the Flying Spaghetti Monster upon this great and noble undertaking.

Atheists preparing to land the first blow in the War on Christmas. In the distance, a Wal-mart can be seen burning.

Disagree.  She and her supporters need to be tied permently to the Republican party.  And on election day, every voter should be reminded that a vote for ANY Republican anywhere is a vote for Sarah Palin.

Ugh. Statistically, at most, only one of those soldiers is going to survive the landing.

Slavery analogies are like Holocaust analogies. They're anything but what the original was about. Having to give up one of your three cars is like the Holocaust. Taxes are like slavery. Not getting your Christmas gifts on time are like the time of Pol Pot. Never anything that involves incredible aggressive and if not genocidal actions against people.

At this point is she any more than that? Is her job description really just "conservative provocateur "?

For those who do not wish to click the link. That's paraphrased, of course.

Thing about Sarah for me is that she doesn't really originate derp,

Her material is just a recycled mish mash of derp that's already out there only she regurgitates it with her own "folksy" spin and delivery.
