I suspect you are right.
There is simply no way they would allow Sheriff Arpaio's investigation to be discussed. After all, it is real news!
I have heard ms. fluke’s name pronounced as ms. Fluck, really. Someone on FOX and it was not satirical.
Your comment is so much more appropriate now. Carbonite is probably going to be “fluked” indeed. :-)
Eerily reminescent of 1984. That is exactly what Obama and his cohorts would like.
He manages to make people believe something different, I don’t know how.
Just saw a congressman ... forget who... on F&F who was discussing the demise of the Volt. Hah. He also said that government is trying to promote cars like the Prius including tactics like having parking spaces reserved for ‘energy efficient cars.’
This is happening in Irving, Texas. I really want to park a Hummer in one. And, by the way, Alan West drives a Hummer==good for him. Sarah Palin just suggested him for VP.
And then what? Propose and advocate a federal law that mandates insurance without co-pay for diabetics?
Hitler’s lips are moving on This is Weak with Stepinawfulpis.
I do believe that would be Mr. O’Reilly ..... LMAO!
George (over the)Will thinks we don’t have issues?
We have EVERY issue. There is not one single issue that Obama is not dead wrong on.
David Gre-gory brought it up the 1st thing w Newt. Newt threw it right back to him - why are we talking about this when there are other issues to discuss, and it is not a womens’ health issue, it is a religious freedom issue; and, Obama has done more than any president against religious freedom. Brought up the Catholic institutions and also a Protestant one. Apologies, it was about an hour ago here and I’ve been reading different things and doing some stuff at home - should have taken notes or posted sooner. When pressed by David, Newt said it was right for Rush to apologize. I think Newt did a good job on Meet the Depressed; but, perhaps I’m partial (I was only 1 of 2 at our table that caucused for Newt yesterday).
That being confessed, let me say, after the tragic events of this past week: Breitbart Is Here ... because Breitbarts in all of us now ... in every heart of every Liberty loving American ... representing vitality, passion, freedom, brilliance, possibility and strength. American Patriots, youve been handed the torch. The George Orwell legend, In an era of universal deceit, the truth is a revolutionary act. To cower in silence is no longer an option.
Was hoping someone would mention Brietbart here. We KNOW the Sunday shout shows won’t touch it.
Generally speaking I despise vapid conspiracy theories—except when they are true, of course.
That said, I think Breitbart was murdered. Pure and simple. This really smells of those three letters McCain saw in Putin’s eyes years ago.
You all remember those three letters, right? I’d mention them here but I don’t have the money for bodyguards,
The world is rancid with freelancers once employed at Lubyanka, Dzershinsky Square. Would the Demoviks hire such same?
As one we know and love would say, you betcha.
Yes, Rush put Carbonite on the map. They are now successful enough to run ads all the time on television. Guess they don’t think they need him anymore. Hah! He probably sells more for them than all the tv ads combined.
By the way, their ads are actually kinda clever, even though I sent them a nasty e-mail.
I got a bridge to sell anybody doesn’t think those hosts weren’t called by the White House and told to beat on the Rush Limbaugh flap.
Gregory WILL NOT LET IT DROP!
Also Cantor endorses Romney?
Bums me out.
Birth Control vs. Birth Certificate.
Washington Post had the phonetic pronunciation.
It rhymes with “look”
This thread is about what is being said n the Sunday morning talk shows. Rush is being discussed.
Santorum on FOX news Sunday - Wallace asks don’t you have to win in (Ohio? missed which state he referred to)? Santorum says we have a great grass roots campaign. Harder when you have two conservatives running. Says we need to show we are the best candidate going forward.
Wallace asks shoud Newt drop out - Santorum - it’s up to Newt. If we combined votes (gingrich and Santoru m) we’d beat Romney, we’ll see how things go in the future.
Wallace asks about filing problems (ohio delegates, VA). Romeny says Santorum flunked on not making sure this basic step occurred. Response, we’re doing pretty well given our resources.
Asked about Rush’s comments/Blunt amendment - do you really want to campain on contraception? Santorum responds this is about a moral exception (a conscience clause exception) for any part of this health care law. This used to be accepted as normal. Govt should NOT be forcing Americans to do things that goes against their conscience.
Wallace brings up comment that Santorum said he thinks contracpetion are wrong.( my comment - he never said that) Brings up 99% of women in this country use artificial BC at some point. Are you saying that all these women have done something wrong? (WOW) Santorum said this is about the govt forcing others to change their positions.
Asks about charitable contributions. Santorum only gave 1.7% why so cheap compared to obama and Romney? Santorum responds his family spends a lot of money on his children, especially his daughter Bella. Insurance does not cover a lot of costs for taking care of Bella. Wallace keeps pushing this 2% - why you so Cheap, Rick? Again Santorum said he was dedicating his resources to taking care of people in his own family. (That was low to keep pushing that point, IMO.)
Now Wallace asks about the SNOB comment and that obama never said what Santorum claimed. Shows 2006 campaign where he supported making federal loans more accessable for college.
Wallace asks about “took one for the team” comment (no child left behind). Santorum says things he didn’t like then (the spending) proved to be a huge problem after it was enacted. Wallace shows 2006 campain where he touted NCLB vote.
Wallace asks about economic plan - non partisan committe on blah,blah,blah said it would add 4T to defecit (did I hear that right?). Santorum responds their analysis is static. Doesn’t see any growth if you cut regulations, etc.
I hate when Santorum lets moderators put him on the defensive and thus comes across as weak and ineffectual.
I hate it because he may be our nominee. Barring a miracle (which I’m kinda praying for) it will be Santorum or The Robot, so I’m wanting Santorum to get me to like him and man up.
I think you will do just fine:o)
I like Santorum best of the bunch left in the race, and I’ll vote for him if he is still running when the primary comes here to the People’s Republic of Maryland, but the fact is he is just running for 2016 at this point, at which time he’ll be the defacto front-runner/heir apparent as Romney is today. If he was honest, he’d just say ....
From Doug Powers writing on Michelle Mailin's site:
Worth noting: Carbonite is still listed as a sponsor of the Ed Schultz Show. You might recall what Schultz said about Laura Ingraham last year, something for which he also subsequently apologized.
That’s good to hear and I will find out after church as I am recording the shows. (that Santorum did well on contraception)
By the way, how did we let contraception become an issue?
The left is scarier than the devil. Maybe they are the devil.
Just don't entrust your valuable data to Mozzy. There's no telling what he and Neal Caffrey might do with it... /g
On a serious note, while there are some valid reasons to use these online storage services, e.g. convenience, people need to keep in mind that there are also caveats and vulnerabilities to consider. For example, the assumption that online access will always be available to them is dangerously naive.
In a time of emergency, natural disaster, terrorist attack or simply arbitrary government fiat, access to your data may frozen or impossible. In addition, if a company's servers are hacked your data is vulnerable, and likewise if you or your company somehow makes it onto some "alphabet agency's" enemies list. In the event of some sort of declared national "state of emergency" there's no guarantee of even having internet service "privileges".
Secondly, for most people, it's more secure and cost effective to buy your own external hard drive backups. You can buy two or three drives, or even a RAID NAS (Network Attached Storage) unit for much less than the subscription fees for online storage.
Finally, it's not just data that needs to be backed up. You really need bootable image backups of your whole hard drives, operating system, applications and settings, and they need to be accessible in case of complete system failure. Having those on external hard drives in your possession is far more logical and practical than trusting you'll be able to retrieve them online in the event of an emergency.
The bottom line for me is that there's nothing wrong with using these types of services for convenience if your security requirements permit, but it would be extremely dangerous to rely on them solely.
I always park my Jeep in those electric only spaces. What, they going to tow my car while I shop in their store? It is nothing more than a symbol for the earth worshippers that they care. I would love to get into that discussion.
Pray for America
After reading that statement, I wish with all my heart that 50% of Carbonite users would switch to Mozy and tell them why.
That was a totally sickening statement.
Thanks for the report, Seattle Conservative. Newt did pretty well on ABC(I think that’s what I was watching), as well. Used pretty much the same approach you just described on MTP.
Well, I kinda hear you because there was one thread yesterday that ran to like 900 posts and several others as well.
The fact is, though, this Sunday thread tends to embrace all relevant topics and that is obviously on our minds right now.
Sounded like all of Wallace’s questions came right out of the Romney campaign research? Most sounded like it was taken out of context and asked to do as much damage as possible.
Compare to his softballs he gave Mitt last week.
Thanks Girlene. I always so appreciate your great reports of the shows!! I don’t get to watch all of them, so your reports are so very helpful and informative.
I just sent messages to Carbonite, Pro Flowers and Sleep Number and told them I will never purchase any of their products because of what they did to Limbaugh. And I am a woman. This argument is beyond ridiculous. I would laugh all of this off as just more stupidity from Washington DC if this were not so very serious.
You are not the only one that thinks he was murdered. I posted a thread last night on that subject and it had 127 comments.
I agree. I bet Carbonite finds out that they lose business from now on.
Not sure what you are talking about but if it is Rush, I disagree.
Rush never endorses but he does indicate things he likes about each candidate and his viewpoints are usually right on.
He’s playing the long game.
He wants Obama out more than anything, and he doesn’t want to put his eggs in a losing basket.
I honestly think he would endorse Newt if he were only talking to a next door neighbor, but he has to be FREE to go to the wall for whoever we nominate.
He’s still the best and I will continue to listen to him.
Don’t forget Georgie Will predicted Nancy would keep the house last election at this point. Those darn Tea Partiers were going to cost us know-it-alls the House.
The life of a Porch Republican.
Know nothing about Twitter but I agree with you. It’s almost gotten bigger than Facebook.
I don’t post political stuff on Facebook as I consider it a Social Network and don’t want to alienate the few friends I have.
However, I would do it on twitter. Maybe I should learn something new.
Although I’m really tired of having to learn new stuff.
Of course not!
If Boehner and McConnell had any kind of gift of gab or rhetorical talent, they’d get the marbles out of their mouth (anybody thinks Boehner and McConnell going to be on all the news shows might need a bridge I got right here to sell, CHEAP)....they’d use that example and go on to explain that EVERYBODY has a deductible and a co-pay for drugs and for the gubmint to mandate that only BC pills be exempted from this begs the debate that ALL drug co-pays and deductibes be considered all in terms of cost, need , etc.
Why should women get their nine bucks a month co-pay for BC pills exempted?
It ain’t rocket science folks. The Repubs got an argument here and they should be using it beyond making a radio talk show host apologize.
Because it AIN’T about a radio talk show host, dear Lord.
Newt is rocking Gregory’s world on Meet The Press. He is awesome.
I disagree, PaleoBob. Both Santorum and Gingrich are running to be the candidate in 2012. I think both realize how much trouble we are in and want to bring their leadership to the Presidency, now.
In other news, FOX SUnday shows latest poll in Ohio: Santorum still leads 34-32, but according to Wallace, Romeny continues to eat away at Santorum’s lead. (lol, nice little dig there, Wallace.)
I totally agree, altura! I don’y use Carbonite, but my Dad does. He always goes out of his way to do business with companies that advertise on Rush (which is why I have 2 Vermont teddy bears). Dad will get a phone call from me today.
I will take a long shower after today’s shows.....Dean, Washerwoman, and now.....cHRISTEEEEEN AHHHH-MAN-SO-POOR !
I deserve a medal for going into enemy territory!
I understand what and why he is doing it, it is just wrong this time. We have 2 conservatives and 1 McCain candidate running and the conservatives are splitting the vote. If he would have endorsed Newt or Rick the other would have stepped down and combined the vote to defeat Mitt.
We end up with Mitt and we lose no matter what happens in the general. He has no Conservative principles, he only wants to moderate or give away your freedom for the greater good.
Lot’s of people in the movement were exposed this election and unfortunately so was Rush. His laughing at the lady who was begging him to endorse before the FL was one of those moments. He thought it was a big joke and then threw in his brother was endorsing Rick when his numbers were at 6%, hahaha.
That pretty much sank Newt when he was getting shellacked by 20 million in negative ads. It’s too late but he should still say which one of the two before Tues.
Pray for America
However, this time, it's bahhh, bahhh, bahhh.
Posting righteous indignation on Free Republic soothes the savage beast.
Actually getting physical? Risking something, anything? Not so much.
The left does what it does because they can, they have, and they see that the general populace can be repeatedly slapped in the face, and all they do is ask forgiveness for their perceived transgressions.
Wait 'til next election, we'll show them, by gosh!
I will be watching Newt on MTP within a few mins. Just saw him on “Face The Nation” and he did a great job. He talked about how he plans to win and how many of the delegates are not legally bound. He mentioned Georgia, Texas and California. They brought Ron Paul on a few mins later. On the contraceptive issue RP said Obama wants to mandate everything and the Repubs are not much better. He said Rush was over the top and crude and only apologized because of his bottom line with the advertisers. He denied any deal worked out with Romney and said Santorum started that conspiracy theory and called Santorum a fake again because he voted for planned parenthood. Ron Paul is really slamming Santorum about being a fake on any interview he has. Like Mark Levin said. Ron Paul is not even a conservative and only has disdain for them so no conservative in this race will meet his approval.
Wallace’s interview/questions of Santorum was not just couched in how he compared to Romney/obama, but crossed over into either siding with Romney or essentially asking Santorum what’s wrong with him. LOL, he wasn’t even hiding it. Sad, because Wallace can be better than that.
FOX Sunday round table discussion on Birth Control
Wallace says Rep.s seemed to have the upper hand until Rush /Blundt amendment. Dem’s are couching this now as a war on women. What say you, panel?
NY Times dude - says he thinks dem. do have the upper hand on this issue, especially with women. Outside voices, particularly RUsh, has taken the economy issue away. Not sure how long-lasting this is.
Woman on the panel (did not catch her name) - This issue goes way beyond women’s health issues - gets to the heart of obama care. Dem’s are framing the issue that somehow you are being denied coverage (like the BC issue) because a company does not currently pay for that procedure/pill/whathaveyou. IOW, with govt mandating standards of what must be covered, they are creating a false illusion that you are being denied something when a company/institution does not want to cover it as part of their coverage. Govt mandates are behind rising cost of healthcare (Absolutely spot on!....and it’s by design).
Juan - politically this has exploded for Repubs.
Kristol - Repubs can win this argument, eventually.
We have three “candidates”
The plant is a coward who will impose ObamaCARE
and say he did not. His lies are systematically
covered up by the MSM, as they do for the
Of the three, Mr. Gingrich truly sounds the best,
and is able to respond the best to the biased
“journalists”. [eg. ABC today]
Want to know the truth?
The MSM agrees and THAT is why
you never see Mr. Gingrich’s
picture up there with The Magic RINO
on the hyper-biased channels like FOX-Bain
Newt on “This Week” Stepi asks Newt what he thinks of Obama’s statement about gas being 2.50 is a fantasy. Newt said Obama needs to go to Newt.org and look at his plan as outline and maybe he will have a clue. LOLOL!!!!!
The Gov. Daniels push as the savior in a brokered convention continues.
