I like Palin, but right now she is somewhat "damaged goods," and still a lightening rod for liberal attacks. Another poster (barbarian?) commented that (paraphrasing here) he believes that she resigned largely for the sake of the citizens of Alaska - that she was becoming too much of a distraction, and losing some of her effectiveness. I want to believe that, but time will tell.
There's a lot of talk about her writing a book, going on the speech circuit, or doing a talk show to help cover her legal expenses. I hope she can stay on message. I believe that she will run in 2012, but unless she can get rid of some of her baggage, she won't stand a chance. However, she may still be able to play a role as King- (or Queen-) maker during the primaries.
Thank you Staff Sergeant Beale for your ultimate sacrifice. My prayers go out to his family and friends.
Kudos on your post.
This Obama-a$$-kissing bozo has got to go. Unfortunately, I think we're stuck with him until 2014.
I was very fortunate to retire when I did, about 3 years ago. Since then, the bank I worked for (27+ years) essentially failed and was bought out. Had I stayed, I most certainly would have been let go by now. I lost a lot when the market dropped last year, but escaped before it got too bad for me. I try to stay healthy, live frugally - small home, older cars, limited travel with my wife of 40 years. I get by, but still worry about how BO's policies are hurting America. I'm mostly worried for my grandchildren, and that they will never be able to enjoy life as I've known it.
Stay strong! Good luck to you, friend.
A few things to celebrate -
We are still a FREE people.
We can worship as we choose.
We can live wherever in the country we choose.
We have the power to elect our own leaders, and the means to replace those who don't do what they should.
Our standard of living surpasses that of people in most other countries.
We are the most generous country in the world, opening our doors and wallets to others.
We still have the strongest (I think) military in the world.
Many, many more............
I'm sure you can find some other things to celebrate, perhaps something with your family and friends, your own achievements, or even your favorite sports team. Hold onto your precious memories of D.C. and the 200th birthday. Hang in there. "This too shall pass."
Best wishes and good luck to you.
Even with all that though, I am still proud to live in this country. I try to take a "glass half full" approach as much as possible. I am glad that I joined this 912 group, and can exchange comments with people like yourself about everyday events. I'm also fortunate that I'm now retired, and have the time to read some of the books recommended by Beck and others, and I am much more comfortable and confident discussing events with others.
