Her first single was in ‘59, but it was obscure, can’t even remember the title.
Oh, yes I was. A true wall flower!
Unless the boys were intimidated by you.
I can honestly say You are one of the most well read persons I have ever met.
Not to toot my own horn but I absorb quite a bit of facts over my time and when I thought I have seen or known something you didn't
Shoot, you read the report when it came out in like the 70's.
You have been a force for good for a long time Onyx my Dear.
Thank you very much for reminding me how quickly time flies!
Yes, I remember the constitution test, that was in ‘58 for me.
It’s hard to believe how much things have changed since then.
She’s missing a few zeroes and some relevancy.
I dunno about that.
Wait and see.
Well, you’re no wall flower now!
Counting flowers on the wall
That don’t bother me at all
Playing Solitaire till dawn
With a deck of fifty-one
Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo
Now don’t tell me
I’ve nothing to do
Gee, I wonder what changed? ;)
Those are very clever lyrics by Lew DeWitt of the Statler Brothers with nice, tight harmony. I like this video since the lyrics appear with the vocals. Goodnight to all...because my eyes are not accustomed to this light! :-)
Eyes likes your thinkin’, tso.
I would support that ticket 1000%, and I would see to it that my friends and associates saw the light as well.
Back in the day I was a strong ‘Keyster’, and more recently a strong Palinista, and I haven’t changed my mind about either one.
I do think if that were to happen it would be best in a party other than the GOP. The party bosses would just weigh them down.
OK, good night Count Dracula! :o)
Bingo! Can't be repeated often enough, in my view.
Brenda Lee? Oh, I see. I got mixed up and thought she was referencing my post at reply #35 above re: Connie Francis, “Who’s Sorry Now?”.
I love the lyrics!
Thanks very, very much!
I stopped being 5’2” and 82 lbs!
I was like that for 2 years in Jr. High School!
Yes, by all means.
Seriously. Go lay down and die somewhere. Surrender is not an option for most of us.
That House will need more than cleaning if we ever get BO out of it - it'll need fumigating and exorcisms.
Elections have consequences. Obama won, he gets to appoint pretty much whomever he wants who’s qualified. His first choice, Susan Rice, got knocked out. His 2nd choice was not going to get knocked out.
If you don’t like Kerry as SoS you better pray on your hands and knees ery single day for four years for the good health of Roberts/Alito/Scalia/Thomas and Kennedy. You may not like some of them, either, but the worst of them beats whomever his replacement would be.
All of this comes back to the highly principled conservatives who refused to vote for Romney.
I saw Patsy once in Enid Oklahoma, she had a leg in a cast. That is one of my all time favorites. Of course I like this gal too.
I miss the old Hit Parade, even Saturday night wrestling when they actually wrestled a little.
In fact I miss The Great Gildersleave, Lum and Abner, Fiber McGee and Mollie, Alan's Ally, Amos and Andy........
You got it.
Marco Rubio voted NO on the “imperfect deal” tax increase earlier this month to cover himself for 2016.
There will be a lot of tricks coming out of Washington from RINO’s afraid of being primaried in 2014.
OVER 90 PERCENT OF THE REPUBLICANS WE HAVE ELECTED ARE PHONY BALONEYS AND THERE IS A NEED FOR A DEEP HOUSECLEANING AND A THIRD PARTY TO RUN IF THEY AREN’T CLEANED OUT IN THE GOP PRIMARIES.
Now you’ve done it - - - (nostalgic radio shows . .). . .
Our Miss Brooks, Let’s Pretend (when younger) The Whistler, The Shadow, Jack Benny (’oh Rochester’ . . .), The Lone Ranger (’return with us now for the thrilling days of yesteryear’ . . ) -
just got a memory cramp - - -
LOL!! I thought I was the only one.

She espoused a path to citizenship for illegals in her imterview with Univision in 2008. She started her speech in Wisconsin (at the height of the union fight) by stating all her own union connections and her support for them. But we can't talk about that here.
I shall put you on Her List!
OOOOOk newb that’s nice.
If your only defense is to call a five year veteran Freeper a newb, then I guess the shoe fits. Pissant.
It’s unbelievable that we have to read about this iconic American in a foreign newspaper.
It seems every time I hear Sarah speak, she is ALWAYS laying praise at Johns feet, saying what a great Senator he is and how much of a patriot he is, yadda yadda. It wasn’t just after the 2010 elections....it’s every time she gets a chance.
I say, she already paid him back and besides that, it bothers me, that she doesn’t see the RINO that he is yet. She’s willing to see Romney and others who are, as she calls them, “Moderates”, but McCain is like a God to her, the way she talks about him. It’s really a turn off and I think it may be a big reason, many still don’t trust her.
I’m willing to look past her adoration of McCain, because I know the woman SHE is. But it is getting as old as McCain himself.
Don’t let them have any ideas ;) (about age)
I’m not a PDS’er, but I am prone now to be a little cautious with Sarah, and I encourage others to do the same, and not elevate her to positions of blind trust that she hasn’t earned.
I, and a lot of others of like mind, planned to support her in the last primary. As a result, we didn’t push similar candidates to jump in, since Sarah was our choice, and we didn’t want to split our vote. She kept us hanging, well past the point we thought she could credibly pull out, and then she pulled out, leaving us with a lot of establishment politicians, but no real, honest, Tea Party, Socially Conservative candidate who could win.
Maybe she had a good reason for that. But had she just said early on that she wasn’t running, I suspect someone else might have jumped in to offer her supporters the kind of option they wanted, touting the issue positions she would have touted, and asking for support, based on their honesty and integrity compared to the rest of the line up. Maybe we’d be looking a President West right now.
I really felt screwed, to put it bluntly, by somebody who appeared to have played the system, without express concern for the movement, or her supporters. I don’t demand much, just be honest with me. If you see me supporting you, and closing other doors, when you don’t intend to let my support count, then let me know. With today’s social media and virality, who knows if somebody would have started a “draft candidate X” page, and it would have taken off and gotten us a real alternative to Mitt, who might actually have beaten Obama.
Funny thing is, even all that wasn’t as irritating as reading all the castigations of her here, and really feeling there was no way to counter them. Everybody who had told us she was just playing us, came out to dance on the grave of her candidacy, and tell us what asses we were to have ever trusted her. And there wasn’t a whole lot to say in return. She had played us. She never inteded to run, it was an attention whoring at our expense and worse, at the movement’s expense, and we were wrong all along, and those pissants were right. It was very vexing, and put me off getting behind her ever again.
Before Sarah, I would have said, as a general rule, don’t trust in anyone you see on TV to be as good as you think they are. Then I thought Sarah looked like she might be the exception, and now I am back to saying, if they are on TV, they have probably sold their soul to the machine to some degree, and any wise person will be cautious with them.
I don’t blame her, she needs to be loyal to her family first, and make them money. But I will caution anyone else to be at least a little wary when she is appealing for anything tangible, like money or political support. Personally, the only one I’d begin to trust now as an effective leader is Allen West.
Unlike Sarah, West hasn’t left me unable to defend him on FR - yet.
What I fins interesting, is that we can relate to things of the time to ‘what grade’ we were in ;)
Actually, that is HOW I narrow down the time lines of situations.. Still would have to go to a library to search through tons of newspapers to find what I was looking for :p
I don’t care what the (non)Conservatives here on FR say about her (onyx), she is a sweetheart, and has the knowledge and intelligence to back it up ;)
Those of us that know her see a troll in an instant when the first FReeper they complain about is onyx (or Dj Macwow)..
Either/both of their husbands are lucky to find them first ;)
I stopped being 52 and 82 lbs!
but she REALLY needs to get over the John McCain is great crap
I do care however when they try to Slander good FReepers, especially with Sexist comments.
Thus insults require..no, DEMAND correction.
Either/both of their husbands are lucky to find them first ;)
ONYX IS A GEM!
I defy you to post links that back up that assertion. I'll bet you can't. Palin hasn't done any such thing.
Go on. Post the links and prove you're not slandering this good patriot.
Happy to see you here, my friend (and FRiend) :)
Was hoping you would jump onto the Opus thread too, but I totally understand if you read all of the comments and just wanted to let the ‘concern’ trolls just fade out :p
Here’s to us.. (beer bottle clink).. hoping for the best.. and we shall see what Mrs. Palin will do in the next 2 years :)
I trust that she will do whatever is right for the situation.
That makes me so glad Bikkuri =^.^=
Onyx is a Gem and has made me Feel SO welcome on F.R. I can't even tell you!
Your Graphics are also so great!
do you have link to where i could find them? ^.^
I just saw something about Melas posting an opus. Is that the thread?
Heres to us.. (beer bottle clink).. hoping for the best.. and we shall see what Mrs. Palin will do in the next 2 years :)
Hear, hear. *clink!*
But they will continue to make the assertion.....
After all, it's the seriousness of the charge that counts.
BUMP to your post challenging the (im)poster to put up or shut up.
I ignore it. I’m proud to be a Conservative and no one will silence me. :-)
Hello my FRiend! How are you?
especially with Sexist comments.
