LIVE THREAD = "Sarah Palin's Alaska" - WEEK 7 - TLC 9/8C -LOGGER FOR A DAY!
TLC & SARAH PALIN'S FACEBOOK ^ | DECEMBER 26, 2010 | TLC/SARAH PALIN

Posted on 12/26/2010 5:29:16 PM PST by onyx

Follow Me There... to Afognak Island!

Come along on another Alaskan adventure as we profile amazingly hard workers in the timber industry. Loggers are hearty and hardy, and the ones I know are true conservationists. I cant wait for you to meet these lumberjacks!



During this Christmas season, do you ever wonder where you get many of your Christmas trees, firewood, packing boxes shoot, just look around at everything timber touches and ask yourself who begins the production of these wood products? Youll meet them on an exciting trip to an Afognak Island logging camp where our daughter learns even more about our familys #1 lesson: tough work ethic and character will fulfill and sustain you.



Learn how the logging families live in such a remote part of Gods country and how they cherish the land that provides their livelihood. Youll see how their reforestation efforts allow the forest regrowth rate to repeat a life cycle of new forest nearly every 20 years. These loggers actually care more about the sustainability of their forests than most anyone because they love their livelihood, they know America relies on our domestic timber industry for good jobs and economic security, they are inspired in the great outdoors, and many of them want their kids to get to grow up to be loggers. Basically, the good folks youll meet want to be allowed to do what they love to do and what anyone who lives among lumber and wood products rely on them to do for us.



In addition, come see Willows eyes open to a new rugged and rustic lifestyle. Her driving skills improve (?) before she undertakes a familys rite of passage with an upcoming drivers license test. Any parent can relate.



With only a couple more episodes to share, I promise you a fun and informative episode of Sarah Palins Alaska this Sunday night at 9pm ET/8c on TLC. Follow me there!



You can watch a preview of the episode

I did. I just posted that. Sarah said seedlings are planted and seeds are even tossed out of airplanes. New trees grow.

Didn’t you hear him say he was going to “retire” that saw...I said that would probably happen...doesn’t want to lose that famous signature! In my mind’s eye, I can see it in an auction 50 or so years from now...

I enjoyed tonights show. Willow looked kinda stuck up through much of it but I’d have to admit I was alot like that as a teen especially when mom would try to say this stuff to me. Glad Willow found her smile in the end. NOw lets see what will the liberal bloggers will gripe about. Sarah said “Eskimo bingo” so maybe they’ll say that its racist to say eskimo. Nice show.

We have watched all of Sarah’s shows, but tonights episodes were especially enjoyable—on our new plasma flat screen with all the bells and whistles, and HD is definitely great.

Our kids gave us the new tv for Christmas, and so far, we’re really enjoying it. Problem for me is that I don’t usually watch tv-haven’t in years, and now I’ve fallen in love with the new set—have to make myself get up and walk away—LOL!

Oh yeah, Eskimo Bingo! Geeez, you could be right. Those libtards...anything mindless to gripe about. I have to watch the replay to see all the details. I see from the comments I missed a lot. That serves me right. I insisted that my sweet husband watch with me - never knew he would chatter so much...lol.

That weekend is another biggie for us here. The holidays always are but now we have another football game on the Monday ... hoping for a win. I noticed the Academy Sports store has a big banner saying if we win, they will open immediately that nightt and sell championship paraphenalia.

But not to me.

On that end, I wanted to get my son a jersey for Christmas. So, I went shopping. THEY WERE PRICED @ $40 - $80 BUCKS! That was more than my market could bear. He got something more in line with my wallet.

Yes, on February 6. It will be Ronnie's 100th Birthday and I hope Sarah announces on that date at the Reagan Library. Sarah Please Run!

...”Her daughters are ALL sleeping around?” Oh really? would that include her youngest, you perverted thinking P.O.T.?

...”Boys go RUNNING upstairs to her daughter’s room”...?

Gee, they don’t even stop to get a condom at the zer0bama clinic first?

She can’t run her house?

David Letterman, is that you, you repugnant, bitter old has-been/never was bastard?

I think I speak for many of the (far more intelligent and well-reasoned) FReepers on this thread - many with more seniority than you - when I say:

Keep such tasteless, baseless, useless, pejorative Demo/RINO-tripe “fakedowns” (fake takedowns) to yourself.

We don’t want or need them.

Or you, with your east coast elitist ways.

What are you anyway, a Romney-Bot?

You don’t seem to run anything except your mouth.

Verbal diarrhea, par putridity.

M-O-O-N-B-A-T

Pay attention to ‘FloridaBattleGround’ from this point?

Hmphhh! Fuggedaboudit

I found it interesting that she defended cutting the trees and told how they reseed or plant saplings. I didn’t realize that those large trees were 20 years old, and the seedlings would be their size in 20-30 years.

Someone who wants to fulfill their service...

The Left will use the rhetoric she "quite her other job". Even though no one thinks to quote her speech the day she left saying she had done in 2 years what she had promised to do in 4, plus the ongoing law suits brought by the Left to bog her down fighting them in bulk form..to win in bulk after all as said and done. Time spent on fighting bogus law suits was time taken away from Alaskan taxpayers who had hired her to work for them.

Palin may be a logger for a day and operate a timber moving John Deere, sled the glaciers, gut a fish and shoot down an elk; does not a President make.

"Princess Elizabeth" was a member of the ATS and a mechanic in the War and enjoyed the beauty of the outdoors.

You MUST be able to command authority like Meir commanded Mossad. Your enemies need to fear you, not caricature you.

Maybe Palin is America's version of Queen Victoria perhaps "graciously playing the hand that fate has dealt her."

I just know we have to get back to being a force to be dealt with, we have been severely damaged in the present/past administrations.

I LOVE Sarah and Todd (got my copy of “Going Rogue” autographed by her in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and Sarah’s aunt from Tri-Cities gave me her own “going rogue with Sarah” red wristband) and agree with all of you good folks.

Check my posted response at #193 on this thread. Feedback welcome...was I too harsh or unseemly, perhaps?
