Sarah Palin,still rent free after all these years

It never fails, if you want to send liberal/progressives into fits of slobbering incoherent rage all you got to do is mention Sarah Palin.
All the buzz words come out, irrelevant, quitter, dumb, caribou Barbie and lots and lots of 4 letter words interspersed with drool and slobbering down their chins.

For someone so irrelevant and out of touch she sure causes a lot of left wing angst.

So it's no surprise that when she starts a news site the knives come out long and sharp.

Sarah Palin's Low-Budget TV Channel Is Pricier Than Netflix
Sarah Palin is returning to her roots in low-budget television—but this time, she's  on the web, the focus is American politics, and she owns the network. The Sarah Palin Channel launched Sunday, asking prospective viewers for $9.95 per month–96 cents more than Netflix–or $99.95 a year. (No word on whether subscribers get money back if Palin decides to stick with the project for only half of that term.) The cost is the same as GBTV, the web-TV channel run by Glenn Beck, a role model for wealthy media figures who hope to monetize the cult of personality they've built up by expertly playing to the cultural affinities and anxieties of Red America.~snip~
I think what really pisses them off is that they'll have to fork over the monthly $9.95 fee to see what "Sarah says" and what "Sarah wears" so they breathlessly report it to the rabid left wing base. Gotta keep the vitriol level up.
Lets face it, the free model out there for news hasn't worked out very well for America seeing as how all major news outlets have been infested with progressive/commies so maybe a lot of folks will be willing to pay for the opportunity to get their news with out the pinko tinge that emanates from left wing news rooms. They can't have that because they won't be able to control the narrative.

I haven't decided if I'll pony up the $9.95 a month yet but I'm sure they won't miss it, there are plenty of people out there who will. How successful it is will send a message to the left wing megaliths that think they can control what news people want to see or hear and that is what truly scares them and sends them in paroxysms of rage.
Good for you Sarah.

Ditzi America?

Other than an opportunity to post a video with attractive women in bikinis there is actually a reason for watching this....other than attractive women in bikinis.
We've gotten away from teaching our history to the younger generation. This is actually more than what ideological side you're on but just basic stuff.
We're talking about whole generations who aren't aware of the various conflicts we have been in or why those who were in power at the time took the actions that they did.
That's why this century will be the most dangerous.

The Problem with the Death Penalty

The current mainstream media outrage in this news cycle is about the execution of Joseph Woods and the amount of time it took for him to die by lethal injection in Arizona.
As a matter of fact it's enough of an issue that media whore John McCain, who never lets an opportunity pass to flap his gums, had something to say about it.

One of the things you'll notice is that when they describe the 2 murders he was convicted of there is no description of the pain his victims suffered or the amount of time they lay dying.
Those omissions are of course intentional because the progressive/liberal media wants to engender sympathy for the murderer.

Lethal injection is the newest method being used to avoid "cruel and unusual punishment". A way to sanitize execution so as not to disturb the sensibilities of the public.

A lot of states adopted a 3 drug protocol which, if administered correctly, was a pretty effective way to execute murderers.
But Joseph Woods wasn't executed using the 3 drug protocol because death penalty opponents began shaming the companies who manufactured them causing the only company making sodium thiopental to stop doing so.
So states are in a search for other protocols to execute murderers as ordered by the courts. Apparently their search for alternatives isn't going so well.
So why don't we return to the tried and true methods of the past, hanging, the electric chair, firing squad or even the gas chamber. These resulted in death way quicker than 2 hours even during the rare times they were botched.

Executing murderers should never be sanitized for the sensibilities of society. We should be able to administer the ultimate punishment to those who violate the most basic right of depriving someone of their life without being squeamish or apologetic about it.
The truth is to those opposed to the death penalty there will never be a humane enough way to execute the rabid predators of society and we should stop trying.

An Ode to Mary Jo

Yesterday marked the 45 anniversary of the death of Mary Jo Kopechne and the cover up that allowed Ted Kennedy to become the "Lion of the Senate".
I was 15 years old at the time and the moon landing pretty much took center stage in the news cycle But I was aware that something had happened at Chappaquiddick Island involving Kennedy and a young woman who died.
Of course the media at the time used the moon landing as the big story to cover up information about the facts surrounding Teddy's total disregard for a human life.
He pretty much skated responsibility for his actions and has never really been held accountable.
Democrats and the liberal media have honed their skills at altering the narrative on many issues since then to hide the truth behind their own racism, sexism and misogyny.

Anyway, over the years the truth behind a lot of these things have finally come out. Unfortunately too late to really do anything about it.
Like holding them accountable.
Over on Twitchy there's a compilation of tweets by Brian Cates (@drawandstrike) that tells the story of Chappaquiddick.

Must read: User @drawandstrike tweets ‘epic rant about Chappaquiddick’

Also there is Y TED that goes into more detail.

If there ever was a more obvious instance of the media not doing their job and exposing their bias this is it.
Hopefully the era of the internet is the beginning of the end of mainstream medias deceptions and malfeasance in support of liberal/progressive democrats.

The Worms of the GOP

Personally I think it's a little obvious why conservative voters didn't support Romney. After all he was offered up by the RINO RNC.

GOP Moderates in Kansas Endorse Democrat for Governor
Some 100 moderate Republicans have turned against Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and endorsed his Democratic challenger Paul Davis, Politico reported.
Old-school moderate Republicans have lost their place in the GOP-controlled Kansas legislature. They blame Brownback, who is a fiscal and social conservative.
Under Brownback, the state has set strict limits on abortion. Davis, however, said he would leave them in place. "We have one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country, and I'm not going to seek to change the law," he said, according to Politico.
Davis breaks with Brownback on implementing a planned tax cut saying he prefers to use the money on education.~snip~
 I think it says a whole lot that "moderate republicans" are closer in ideology to a democrat than a fiscal and social conservative.
There's no doubt that this country needs to get democrats out of Washington,DC but we'll have to be realistic about the type of RINO the RNC will offer us again because the track record hasn't been so great.
Reversing the damage that Obama and the democrats have done will go very slowly until the RNC can be purged of its gutless, spineless RINOs and a wave of conservatives takes it over.

Obama Worshipper Update

I'm sure most people remember Peggy Joseph and her breathless support for the Obamessiah, It seems that almost 6 years later she's had an epiphany and has now realized that Obama isn't all that she hoped he would be. 
Her message now is to basically be leery of the man behind the curtain.

Denying the Consequences

As always liberal/progressives go full bore ahead with their ill considered ideas without looking far enough ahead to see the consequences.

Report: SMALL LIFELESS, DEAD CHILDREN Found “Washed Up Along Riverbank” of Rio Grande
“The life jackets helped many make it across the Rio Grande from Reynosa, the Mexican city across the water from Mission, just west of McAllen. Sources say they come over on rafts ferried by the so-called “coyotes,” the human smugglers whose means of transport are rendered useless whenever discovered by the Border Patrol. Many don’t make it across the river; multiple sources became emotional when recounting their discoveries of small, lifeless bodies washed up along the riverbank.”
The flood of illegal immigrant children to our borders can be directly connected to the Obama administrations lackadaisical enforcement of our immigration laws. While they are all wringing their hands and squealing about how we have to be compassionate they ignore the ever increasing body count of the unaccompanied minors who are dying in their rush to get here.
What we are seeing now is just the ones we find within our borders. There's no telling how many have expired on the other side and liberal/progressives don't want to know.
The reason is that all the dead children can be laid at the feet of of this administration. Their contempt for the rule of law and the encouragement of the open borders zealots contributes to these deaths as much as the heat, drownings, or abuse by smugglers.
It just goes to show once again that liberal/progressives are neither caring nor compassionate to others.
If they were they would care about the body count and finding a way to stop it.
