From the looks of the lineup this week, this observation will seem late, because the teacup seems to have calmed down, but I will bring it up anyway:

Rush Limbaugh looked at the Sandra Fluke problem the wrong way; we aren't being asked to pay so she can have sex, we are supposed to pay so she won't have children. And based on everything I have seen and heard from and about the woman, the world would be a better place if Sandra Fluke never has children. They would probably grow up to be selfish, whining, snot-nose little brats just like her.

And I mean that in the best way, of course.

Dittos Fish, we are filing 4 petitions this week to stop Light Rail going through our county. It has shocked the leaders in PTown and we will be putting them on a Sept ballot where these have been passing by 60-80%.

I don’t think Obama should have given notice he was pulling out of Afghanistan. What a moron.

He should have just pulled out and then announced it.

I am becoming very disillusioned with having troops anywhere in the middle east. Those people do not appreciate any of our efforts and, sadly, I don’t think our efforts have accomplished anything.

The middle east is becoming more and more fundamentalist muslim and it’s spreading to formerly more liberal countries like Egypt.

Maybe one small, well-fortified base, from which to coordinate a massive intelligence system and the data from that could elicit a response, I’m for bombing. Give the civilians fair warning and take out the nuclear facility. they say it’s underground and not susceptible to bombing, but you could sure bomb everything on top of it.

What’s most troubling with Afghanistan.....is Karzai. He’s very unreliable.

What's most troubling about Afghanistan is that we should have pulled out when we won that war. Which was about 6 months or less after we got there.

Nation-builidng is not our strong suit, and the last 10 years prove that. You want to re-build Afghanistan, take any 2 rocks and pile them on top of a third rock. You have now restored Afghanistan to where it was when the Soviet Union invaded.

No matter when we leave that place, we will end up going back there to shoot at people as long as they remain muslims. It's just the way it is.

I’ll take one for the team, Fox News with ROmney asks about shootings in Afghanistan, Karzai’s demands, and obama’s stance.

ROmeny says he would exercise leadersip, talk to Karzai on a daytoday basis. We have an interest there. This is an example of failed leadership with the Specific time tables on Afghanistan.

Mod asks would you accelerate withdrawal? ROmney says it’s dependent on what’s happening on the ground.

Oops, breakfast calling.......

I am a friend of the SSG Bob Bales family. This has been devestating for us, but we are deeply in prayer.

I ask everyone to pray for him and his family, and our country, and even Afghanis—through this terrible ordeal.

All I can say is things are not what the media likes to portray, so don’t believe everything you see or hear on TV.

I know, you the Sunday threaders, already know this.

I’m off to church now, and won’t be back until afternoon. I will be lighting a couple of candles today, and saying many a prayer and rosary. Help by praying too.

We are being asked to pay for her having unprotected sex. Birth control pills don't protect you from STDs including AIDS.

There was a thread yesterday on which a man who had served with Sgt. Bales posted. It was really interesting and he posted a picture of the two of them.

He has total respect for Bales. I am enraged that this man was sent back four times. I don’t know what happened and I do not trust the media or Obama.

But I will pray for him and his family. The worst thing that should happen to him is to be sentenced to a military hospital for Obama-induced mental illness.

Your comment reminds me of one other item. All our candidates need to start using terminology about how our current situation was exacerbated by Democrats who took over congress after the 2006 election. That it’s Democrat proposals and policies that are killing the economy. Yes, some Republicans joined them but it was Democrats and their liberal and progressive base who pushed us to where we are today. Thank Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi who helped Barney Frank and others destroy our economy until 0zero could get elected to make it even worse.

I agree but that means we have to keep our issues out front as long as we can. That means extending the primary season for as long as possible to keep driving home each point. It would not bother me one bit if the Democrats only had two months to mount a campaign against us. Rush is right, the longer this goes on the more panic we see in their actions and responses as they try to change the conversation or dismiss their dismal failures.

I think we should start a prayer wheel of support here on Freep...I would also like to know if Sgt Bales has a “dream team” of attorneys?

I am still not convinced this was not the Taliban setting him up.

Finally someone brings it up.How the country took a huge dive off the platform when the dirty dems took control over congress in 2006. We need to stop anyone from blaming GW when it was the piglosi mantra that started destroying the country in 2006 not anything GW did.

Regarding Rush Limbaugh, I wrote a cranky letter to a Dallas Morning News columnist, a lame liberal lady (and a dull writer).

She was calling Limbaugh a pig and constantly used the term ‘oink’, as in Limbaugh oinked.

I challenged her on a couple of things. One, she was decrying name calling while calling someone a pig. Apparently, she didn’t see the irony.

Two, I mentioned the tolerance of name calling by liberal dudes such as Bill Maher and Letterman. She said she didn’t like Maher but didn’t write about him because he wasn’t an influential figure like Rush. (that much is true).

She was also decrying the attacks on women. I informed her that being in any group, women, black, gay, whatever, did not entitled one to behave badly without being rebuked.

I told her that I am currently in two groups: female and old but that I didn’t expect to be able to be a lying bitch without being called on it.

I heard Rush the day he made the comments and just laughed. He was ticked off at the gall of the woman. He made a mistake (I guess) as the left seized upon it as an opportunity to bash him and conservatives.

However, it did end up shedding some light on the Fluke gal and her hypocrisy.

So how it balanced out, I don’t know if we’ll know.

Yeah that’s true. But Ryan is a born leader and my guess is some time in the future he, Palin and Marco will take their leadership places and our party will shine again.


Excuse me. Don’t you remember that Paul Ryan is nothing more than “a right-wing social engineer”—??

Truthfully two things, one I was extremely busy in meetings organizing these petitions and second, I was thinking my articles may be taking away from this thread.

Crazy thing is, this county now has a Freeper who is basically running the GOP now. They turned over half the county to me yesterday and with these petitions which are all over the Oregonian and turning the place upside down, amazing things are happening.

We are fighting in the belly of the beast. This is where the earth movement started and where it is going to end. I need your prayers.

I read your and Altura’s post about this mess overseas and count me in.

Afghanistan ain’t gonna be rebuilt, much less with America’s lack of resolve and the politicization of every war.

I’m weary of it and think we should get out.

We SHOULD have won the war, period, put that third rock back on top of the bottom two rocks, told the children to play nice, that we’d be watching, and left them.

Iraq....almost, not quite, but almost same thing.

time for the Iraqis to take control. America just needs to keep stern eyeball on it all but let them live how they want.

It just gets SO confusing. I remember when climate change and global warming used to be called “winter” and “summer”, and we used to be able too call terrorists “terrorists” instead of insurgents. I even remember when “gay” meant to be fun loving, happy and jolly. Now I have to remind myself that a woman who is paid for sex is a “Fluke”!!!

Would anyone be crazy enough to go up against Mark Steyn? He would totally demolish the rest of the panel on something like The Five. He not only knows everything but he explains it with such sly wit and with a British accent. What could be better? And he’s very cute.

The problem is that The Five and those like them probably aren't smart enough to even catch Steyn's wit. it would go right over their heads... /g

Let me ax you this then, do you want me to throw in some of these battles against Light Rail? It very likely will be front page news once we file which they are all done professionally and my program will guarantee to get the signatures.

Many of our politicians are saying this is a game changer in Oregon and could very easily get people elected since we just painted the Dems in a corner. Do you stay with the boondoggle DNC laundry machine or do you go with the 75% who are voting these petitions through. It puts them in a box. We already had our Rep’s opponent calling these measures “undemocratic.”

This goes to the heart of central planned socialism and the war against the car. We are going to have a huge war right here in River City.

Pray for America

It sure is looking that way, Bernard. The increasingly restrictive ROE’s in Afghanistan (part of the winning hearts and minds strategy) seems to have only undermined OUR troops. I’m not sure we have made much progress in setting up the Afghan army and govt to take over once we leave. They seem worthless.

Foxnews RoundTable

Brett - Santorum needs delegates by he bushel...will make it very difficult for Santorum to ever win the nomination. Doesn’t look like Santorum will get any delegates from Puerto Rico. That’s 23 delegates; he needs every one.

AB Stoddard the Hill, says the voters aren’t listening (about getting on the Romney bandwagon). The narrative now is about Romney losing. Right now Romney doesn’t look like a compelling person to vote for in the general

Charles Lane, Wapo - agrees with Stoddard. Will take Romney a long time to get where he’s going. Romney is spendng his resources in the primary, and the party base is showing their lack of enhusiasm

Krystal - The Republican nominee’s (whoever it is) campaign strategy should come down to obamacare and a few other big issues like energy, etc.....rest of their campaign should be focussed on liberty and freedom. (Hey, he’s describing Santorum’s campaign strategy.)

Krystal makes comment on Romney’s performance this am on FOX....Romney did pretty well, except when he said the fundamental difference between himself and obama was that Obama does not have private sector experience...didn’t bring up heathe care, anything else. Not a compelling argument for Romney.

As for Light Rail, it costs around 300 million per mile so around 1000 people a day can ride it. A pure payoff to the unions.
