Her first single was in ‘59, but it was obscure, can’t even remember the title.

I don't believe that for one second Onyx.

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.

Yes, I remember the constitution test, that was in ‘58 for me.

It’s hard to believe how much things have changed since then.

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! :-)

“Keyes/Palin”

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.

...the Republican party isn't really Conservative at all. Sarah Palin, Ronald Reagan and Barry Goldwater are, in fact, the outliers.

Bingo! Can't be repeated often enough, in my view.

What a joke.
Palin is not only a day late and a billion dollars short, but futile besides.
It is just funny to see her too-late attempt that will come to nothing.
It is over.
They are going to ruin us...
We can’t even slow down the rate of collapse anymore.

Seriously. Go lay down and die somewhere. Surrender is not an option for most of us.

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.

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.

Palin did support Amnesty Liberals...

_______________________________________

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.

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.

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.

My 2c.

I was 5'10", 102 lbs all through high school (did any and all sport I could make time for.. was Line-man on the football team).. I had to get a waiver to get in the Air Force because I was UNDERweight :\

I remember, while I was in University.. I would order 2 large pizzas with xtra jalapeños because I knew no one else would touch them ;) and I never gained weight (all the high school sports raised my metabolism to the stratosphere, I guess)..

Anyway.. got a bit off track there ;) ..

Not sure I would still be here on FR if it wasn't for you, and FReepers like you,with like-minds as myself.

Well, I didn't think I was that stupid... but I DID learn a new word here on FR when Gov. Palin came to the front: misogynist


I guess I never had a need to know the word, or meaning of it, until now :\

I can think, off of the top of my head, several members here that fit that description now (some banned specifically for it (most know who I am talking about), and a few that are still here :p)...
