Stars Earn Stripes is failing so hard right now



From TV by the Numbers


On NBC, Stars Earn Stripes dipped three tenths from last week's 1.2, earning a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating. Grimm earned a 1.6 rating, down a tenth from last week's 1.7 adults 18-49 rating.

I wonder if they will pull the plug on it or move it to late night. Oh who am I kidding?

I don't blame people for not watching it, it's an insult to real soldiers like the Navy seal who defended President Obama and got outed.

And having the Two toned Pimp Daddy on there doesn't help. Everyone is sick of the Palins.

Another reason for Sarah to hate August 29

August 29 is Sarah and Todd's wedding anniversary. I'm sure she rues the day she married the Pimp Daddy. But now August 29 is really gonna stick in her ass.

From Mediaite

“Our plans changed based on the fact that the RNC condensed the schedule of speeches from four nights to three. We look forward to having Governor Palin back as soon as we can.”

And Sarah's Facebook page:

I’m sorry Fox cancelled all my scheduled interviews tonight because I sure wanted to take the opportunity on the air to highlight Senator John McCain’s positive contributions to America, to honor him, and to reflect on what a biased media unfairly put him through four years ago tonight. Granted, our honored and esteemed war hero has gone through much more than the liberal media can ever do to him in their efforts to harm this patriot. I look forward to hearing his words to his fellow Americans tonight more than any of the other convention speeches. God bless John McCain. Thank you for everything. And happy birthday, my friend.

Sarah has a friend? I did not know that.

I guess this means the end of Sarah Palin as we know it. Bye Bye Bitch!

And when are the democrats going to receive the same scrutiny for their nasty politics? I know Axelrod is a nasty man by reputation, not to mention most senators but cmon.

I don't trust people who put out books like the above yet can't see the vileness in their own party and political friends.

Palinbots can't let go

You're one to talk about not letting things go. You constantly bring up past events that have nothing to do with present reality or the future, and just write about them to be hurtful. Though people aren't yet mature know no better. You're definitely in that boat

Palinbots can't let go

From KCRG News

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - A group called The Earthquake Movement is responsible for a series of Cedar Rapids billboard ads supporting Sarah Palin for the Republican presidential nomination.

An electronic billboard near The Ar-Jay Center on Council Street NE has recently been displaying a series of four advertisements involving Sarah Palin. None of the ads actually contain Palin's image, but include messages like, "Nominate Sarah Palin for President," and "Sudden and Relentless Reform - Delegates are Unbound," as well as "Palin 2012" and "Sarah Palin Supporters Unite."

According to an email from a representative of The Earthquake Movement, the group has sent informational packets to delegates around the country, asking them to be one of the five required majority state delegations needed to nominate Palin in the first round of voting at the Republican National Convention. The packets also ask for delegates to nominate Palin in the second round if presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney does not receive the required number of delegates in the first round.

The Earthquake Movement has also distributed information on Palin's "record, accomplishments and why we think she is the person who can excite the base and defeat President Obama in November."

"We are finding a lot of unhappy Republican voters," the email said. "They feel like the RNC is not listening to them and based on voter turn out in the primaries and what we are hearing from Conservative Americans, they want her to emerge from the convention as the nominee. They are also very angry that she was not given a prime time speaking spot at the convention and are wondering if the RNC is attempting to shut her out because her message resonates with so many of us fly-overs. Are they afraid if she speaks prior to the vote or at all, we will have an averted Reagan experience?"

This is beyond pathetic.

Sarah is not running in 2012, and she will not be running in 2016. Get over it.

Everyone should read this book

From Amazon.com

The U.S. House of Representatives—a large, often unruly body of men and women elected every other year from 435 distinct microcosms of America—has achieved renown as “the people’s House,” the world’s most democratic institution, and an acute Rorschach of biennial public passions. In the midterm election year 2010, recession-battered Americans expressed their discontent with a simultaneously overreaching and underperforming government by turning the formerly Democratically controlled House over to the Republicans. Among the new GOP majority were eighty-seven freshmen, many of them political novices with Tea Party backing who pledged a more open, responsive, and fiscally thrifty House. What the 112th Congress instead achieved was a public standing so low—a ghastly 9 percent approval rating— that, as its longest-serving member, John Dingell, would dryly remark, “I think pedophiles would do better.” What happened?

Robert Draper explores this question just as he examined the Bush White House in his 2007 New York Times bestselling book Dead Certain: The Presidency of George W. Bush—by burrowing deeply inside the subject, gaining cooperation of the major players, and producing a colorful, unsparingly detailed, but evenhanded narrative of how the House of Representatives became a house of ill repute. Draper’s cast of characters spans the full spectrum of political experience and ideologies—from the Democrat Dingell, a congressman since 1955 (though elbowed out of power by the party’s House leader, Nancy Pelosi), to Allen West, a black Republican Tea Party sensation, former Army lieutenant colonel, and political neophyte with a talent for equal opportunity offending. While unspooling the boisterous, at times tragic, and ultimately infuriating story of the 112th Congress, Draper provides unforgettable portraits of Gabrielle Giffords, the earnest young Arizona congresswoman who was gunned down by a madman at the beginning of the legislative session; Anthony Weiner, the Democrats’ clown prince and self-made media star until the New Yorker self-immolated in a sex scandal; the strong-willed Pelosi and her beleaguered if phlegmatic Republican counterpart, House Speaker John Boehner; the affable majority whip, Kevin McCarthy, tasked with instilling team spirit in the iconoclastic freshmen; and most of all, the previously unknown new members who succeeded in shoving Boehner’s Republican Conference to the far right and thereby bringing the nation, more than once, to the brink of governmental shutdown or economic default.

In this lively work of political narrative, Draper synthesizes some of the most talked-about breaking news of the day with the real story of what happened behind the scenes. This book is a timely and masterfully told parable of dysfunction that may well serve as Exhibit A of how Americans lost faith in their democratic institutions.

This book really exposes the GOP members of Congress. All of them should be arrested for treason.

As usual Sarah Palin opens her asshole and spews shit about Todd Aikin. I call it asshole because her head is shoved up her ass

From Twitter

Sometimes we're actually right when we go with our gut and stand on principle in supporting underdog candidates.

Really Sarah?

Instead of condemning Todd Aikin, you rub it in and say "I told you so". For once do the right thing.

Why do you hate rape victims so much? Is it because you may have been a rape victim yourself and want every woman to suffer the same fate? Dr. Cathy Baldwin Johnson is your primary provider and she is a specialist in dealing with patients who were sexually abused.

While mayor of Wasilla you made rape victims pay for their rape kits until the state outlawed the practice.

You want to deny rape victims the right to abort their babies, thus prolonging their trauma and agony.

You also endorsed Wayne Anthony Ross for Attorney General, who believes men have the right to rape their wives.

And you fired Walt Monegan who complained you wouldn't budget more money for rape victims.

Then you scream that men want to rape your daughters and David Letterman made a bad joke about Willow.

Note I highlighted the word rape about six times here.

But don't worry Sarah. No one is going to rape you ever again. Especially after they see you dressed like this:



Sarah on Greta last night, she all but has a nervous breakdown:

The truth on Mitt Romney's Olympic Leadership

From Sodahead

You might wonder why the Romney people haven’t made more of a public cause celebre out of his stewardship of this highly successful event featuring 2,400 athletes from 77 countries. I think they’re probably waiting for the London Summer Olympics scheduled to open July 27 and close August 12th.
You’ll probably see a bunch of 2002 hyperbole, again characterizing Mitt as an indispensable leader made of stern presidential stuff.

Besides the 2002 Winter games, Mitt also headed the summer companion competition, the Paralympic Games; another 416 athletes from 36 countries. Let’s first take a quick look at the Paralympic games and
Mitt so you’ll get an idea of where I’m going here. Paralympic athletes can have any number of physical ‘disabilities’, including cerebral palsy, blindness, amputation, degrees of intellectual impairment and
ironically multiple sclerosis, a condition that Mitt’s wife Ann was diagnosed with 14 years ago. It’s currently in remission.

The committee was some $379 million shy of revenue projections with 700 employees to pay and a Winter Olympics to mount. Man, where are you going to come up with $379 million? Romeny could open a barbershop franchise for gays or maybe sell star-maps to offshore tax avoidance havens…naw, not enough time. Then it came to him. He’d flood the halls of congress with lobbyists in search of scads of discretionary
taxpayer-funded earmarks for the games. He came away with $382 million. There were also additional fed funds for security in the wake of the horrific 9/11 attacks, but well over a billion went to the games, themselves. Fellow homophobe and chaser after the republican presidential nomination, Rick Santorum was livid. The flaming heterosexual told a Columbus, Ohio Tea Party crowd that “He (referring to Romney) heroically bailed out the Salt Lake City Olympics by heroically going to Congress and asking them for tens of millions (it was far more) to bail out the Salt Lake City Olympic games, in an earmark.” “Does the word hypocrisy come to mind?”

Before it was all over the 2002 Romney-run Salt Lake City Winter Olympics had sucked up roughly $1.3 BILLION in fed dollars according to the General Accounting Office. More than the government had awarded to all previous U.S. Olympic venues combined. That included some highly questionable expenditures for the owner of Sinclair Oil, Earl Holding. Holding also owned Snowbasin ski resort. Earl sat on the SLOC committee that Romney headed. The committee awarded him $14 million for hosting 3
men’s and 3 women’s ski races. The old boy was worth in the billions at the time and roughly $3.1 billion as of last year. But we’re just getting started. Congress approved a deal that added 1,300 acres of
pristine national forest land to his resort. AND…Uncle Sam built him a neat old road from the resort to the Salt Lake City airport. There were other rich-guy raids on the fed money as well, a private little
piggy-bank as it were. Did Mitt partake? Almost impossible to tell with his secret accounts around the world.

Many media claimed the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics were fraught with so many sleazy deals that, had all been properly investigated it would have made the original bribery scandal look like a 5-year-old breaking into a cookie jar.

And what did the fabulous leadership of Romney accomplish for Salt Lake City? According to a study by the University of Utah, very little once Michelle Kwan had landed her last triple axel. Sure there were jobs
and money pouring in for the duration of the competition and a trust fund has been set aside to preserve some venues. But after that the study was hard pressed to find any positive consequences on a
Macroeconomic scale and even during the halcyon days of the competition, the games constituted but a tiny fraction of the state’s economic gains.

Let the record show, however, that Romney was elected governor of Massachusetts in 2002 and took office despite some residency challenges. All that out-state Olympic campaigning can pay dividends.

Cookiegate

From NY Times

Mitt Romney never even tasted them.

But his offhand remark about a tray of five dozen cookies from a bakery in Bethel Park, Pa., on Tuesday has lighted up the local airwaves with confectionery consternation, even earning that most coveted distinction of superficial scandals – a name.

“Cookiegate,” as the bakery itself is calling the brouhaha, began as Mr. Romney sat down at a picnic table with six couples from suburban Pittsburgh to talk about the economy, a campaign event intended to capture the Republican presidential candidate engaged in casual conversation with ordinary Americans.

The table was filled with snacks, like potato chips and pretzels. But for whatever reason, Mr. Romney zeroed in on the cookies, a colorful collection that the bakery calls mini lady lox and gourmet thumbprints.
“I’m not sure about these cookies,” he said, looking at one of the woman. “They don’t look like you made them. No, no. They came from the local 7-Eleven, bakery, or whatever.”

In the retelling, all anybody at Bethel Bakery, the beloved 57-year-old outfit that made the cookies, would remember was “7-Eleven.” As in, Mr. Romney had compared their bakery’s cookies with those from a convenience store.

“I thought, oh my God, how can this guy actually make that statement?” said the bakery’s owner, John Walsh. “He needs to be educated about the quality differences.”

But the bakery swallowed its umbrage long enough to see an upside: It put up signs about  Cookiegate, changed its outgoing phone message to mention the controversy, and offered a new limited-time promotion: the Cookiegate Special – buy a dozen cookies, get six free.

Sales have surged, Mr. Walsh said, with orders flooding in from as far away as Georgia.

Among the bakery’s new customers: the Obama campaign. The local Pennsylvania office ordered a tray of five dozen cookies on Thursday, the same platter that sat before Mr. Romney earlier in the week.

Unfortunately this won't be the last time Mitt shows his unappreciation for the middle class and shoves his foot in his mouth.

GOP Newsletter calls for armed revolution if President Obama is reelected

From Right Wing Watch

The Greene County, Virginia Republican Committee publishes a monthly newsletter for members called “The Constitutional Conservatives.” The newsletter is heavy on Tea Party rhetoric about how Obama and liberals are ruining America, and so forth. But even by these standards, an item in the March newsletter stands out.


In the “Whitehouse Watchdog” column, editor Ponch McPhee says that America cannot survive four more years under Obama, a “political socialist ideologue” who is “unlike anything world history has ever witnessed or recognized.” McPhee argues that Americans will have no option “but armed revolution should we fail with the power of the vote in November:”
We have before us a challenge to remove an ideologue unlike anything world history has ever witnessed or recognized.
An individual who has come to power within a Nation which yields it’s strength over the entire world.
An elected leader who shuns biblical praise, handicaps economic ability, disrespects the honor of earned military might.
In the coming days and weeks  ~ we the people must come to grasp as a common force, our very soul’s, that our future as a sovereign nation is indeed at risk.
If every single individual that you know, would contact 25 other individuals  ~ we can make a difference that will be heard across the Commonwealth and in Washington.
The ultimate task for the people is to remain vigilant and aware  ~ that the government, their government is out of control, and this moment, this opportunity, must not be forsaken, must not escape us, for we shall not have any coarse but armed revolution should we fail with the power of the vote in November ~ This Republic cannot survive for 4 more years underneath this political socialist ideologue.
The Greene County GOP apparently realizes that McPhee and the newsletter are a potential liability, judging by the disclaimer on the back page claiming that views expressed are individual only. But that’s a cop-out. They should either stand behind McPhee’s insane views about armed insurrection or find an editor who represents their real views.

Stars Earn Stripes loses out to Hotel Hell but still has more viewers than Life's a Tripp, er, Joke

From By the Numbers

FOX was the number one network in adults 18-49 and total viewers.

The premiere of Hotel Hell earned a 1.9 rating, and was the highest rated new series debut on any network this summer among Adults 18-49. Hell's Kitchen returned to earn a 2.7, which was up a tenth from its last original, which earned a 2.6 two weeks ago.

On NBC, the premiere of Stars Earn Stripes scored a 1.7 18-49 rating, down -23% from last summer's debut of Love in the Wild. The Season 2 premiere of Grimm earned a 2.0 adults 18-49 rating, only a tenth lower than the season one premiere , which earned a 2.1 18-49 rating(its highest-rated episode to date). It seems most of your predictions were a touch optimistic.

On ABC, Bachelor Pad earned a 1.2, up two tenths from last week's series-low 1.0 adults 18-49 rating. The Glass House earned a 0.7 rating, up a tenth from last week's series low 0.6. adults 18-49 rating.

On The CW, Remodeled earned a 0.1 rating.

CBS was all repeats for the evening.

I'm sure more people would rather watch the ex Mr. Jessica Simpson than Todd Palin

Since Sarah Palin was told to shut up she should just skip the GOP convention she should visit Mt. Rushmore instead



While I was in South Dakota I went to Mt Rushmore. It is a beautiful work of art honoring some of our best presidents-George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln.

In the evening they have a lighting ceremony which a ranger gives a talk, show a video, take down the flag and light the faces. It is truly an inspiring experience.

Last year Sarah went out on her bus tour and visited the Liberty Bell, got her facts wrong about Paul Revere, visited DC and Ronald Reagan's birthplace.

There is one place Sarah should visit.

Mt. Rushmore-the SHRINE OF DEMOCRACY.

I don't know if Sarah has ever been to Rushmore but if she hasn't why not?

Two founding fathers are sculpted up there...Washington and Jefferson. But maybe Sarah does not know that.

Perhaps Sarah secretly hates the presidents that are on Mt. Rushmore.

George Washington may have been gay and certainly dressed like one. He also refused to be a king and would not run for a third term.

Thomas Jefferson was a deist and wrote his own version of the Bible.

Abraham Lincoln stomped on state's rights and freed the brown skinned people.

Theodore Roosevelt was for the common man and was a conservationist and trust buster.

Sarah would learn a lot if she visited Mt Rushmore. So would her family.

The Sturgis rally is over now so it won't be as crowded either.

What are you waiting for Sarah?

Catholics always stick together

While I was in the Black Hills I visited Crazy Horse Memorial. In the museum they have a corner where a lot of sports memorabilia is displayed as Ruth the widow of Korczak Ziolkowski the founder of the project is a sports fan. In the trophy case they have this displayed:






Now I know Ruth had no idea that Joe Paterno helped cover for Jerry Sandusky until the story broke into the national media but I think she should remove the ball from the trophy case and throw it away. I even wrote a note in the guest book stating so including my name and address.

Joe and Ruth have something in common. They are both Catholics. Guess Catholics really do stick together.

It is insulting to have Joe Paterno's autograph on display here as he covered for a pedophile and sexual abuse and assault is rampant amongst Native Americans, a group they are supposed to be honoring.

Also Crazy Horse was a man of honor and integrity and we all know Joe is anything but that.

Speaking of the Penn State scandal:

From NY Post

A new criminal probe into Penn State pedophile Jerry Sandusky is looking into the possibility that the sick sex fiend abused a child along with a prominent athletic booster for the school, according to a new report.

RadarOnline.com said last night that the US Postal Service and the FBI are investigating Sandusky’s actions — and that a witness has claimed that the jailed molester and the booster teamed up to abuse a child who was believed to have been from his Second Mile charity.

“The person interviewed has brought up the name of a prominent Penn State booster and alleged that this man was involved with Sandusky in illegal behavior with young boys,” a source told the website.

The Postal Inspection Service is leading the investigation, and also is trying to determine if Sandusky sent letters across state lines to some of his victims for sexual purposes, CBS News reported.

Sandusky was convicted in June of sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years in a scandal that shook Penn State to its core. He remains in jail awaiting sentencing.

In late 2011, federal prosecutors in Pennsylvania alleged Sandusky used the letters to lure his victims across state lines for his sexual purposes, CBS reported.

Investigators believe trips and gifts were used to seduce the victims and that six to seven individuals might have gotten letters.

A source told CBS that child pornography was found on at least one of Sandusky’s computers, though the images are not of his victims.

Postal inspectors also will reportedly look into The Second Mile charity, which Sandusky founded and used to meet young boys.

Investigators are searching a computer seized from Sandusky for any evidence of the letters.

Sandusky’s attorney, Joe Amendola, disputed the new allegations against his client.

“We believe they are unfounded and ridiculous,” he said in a statement. “Jerry continues to maintain his innocence.”

I was going to wait until Jerry was sentenced to voice my opinion on the rumor he pimped the boys out to rich donors but I think I will do it now.

I believe some of these donors are very powerful men. One that comes to mind is Dan Rooney, owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Ambassador to Ireland. He also endorsed President Obama in 2008. There is a picture of him at an undated Second Mile event. I'm not 100% positive it's him, but it sure does look like him, front row, seated on the left:


If he is the donor in question this will definitely destroy President Obama's re-election hopes. God help us.

Another one I had in mind is Rick Santorum. Slick Rick awarded Jerry Sandusky the Angels in Adoption award in 2002. Rick graduated from PSU in 1980 so he would have an interest in Penn State. Rick is also very homophobic and took offense when his last name Santorum became a term for gay intercourse. The biggest homophobes tend to be closet gays.

What you need to know about Paul Ryan

From the Go Back Team

Paul Ryan’s top-down budget plan is a sham

Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney both support trillions in budget-busting tax cuts for millionaires that will result in tax hikes on the middle class and deep cuts in education and other investments we need to grow. Ryan’s extreme budget plan, which Mitt Romney has embraced, would make deep spending cuts now to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy, which would weaken the recovery and cost the economy jobs.

According to Harvard economist Jeffrey Liebman, based on Mitt Romney’s own projections on the impact of deep spending cuts on the economy, Paul Ryan’s budget plan could cost the U.S. more than 1 million jobs.

Paul Ryan’s plan would raise taxes on the middle class and cut taxes for the wealthy

Ryan’s extreme budget plan would benefit the wealthy while raising taxes on middle-class families, slowing our economic recovery and hurting seniors and the middle class.

Deep tax giveaways for the wealthy:
Paul Ryan’s extreme budget includes a tax “reform” plan that would make the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy permanent, and give millionaires an additional tax cut worth over $250,000 a year. Paying for these tax cuts for the most fortunate families would require higher taxes on the middle class, gutting investments in our future, and ending Medicare as we know it.

Raise taxes on the middle class:
Just like Mitt Romney’s tax plan, middle-class families could pay thousands of dollars more a year in taxes to help fund tax cuts for millionaires. Ryan would cut or eliminate middle-class tax deductions like mortgage interest, charitable contributions, and health premiums.

Paul Ryan’s plan would gut middle-class investments

To pay for tax cuts for the wealthiest, Paul Ryan would gut investments critical to middle-class security.

This includes cutting Pell Grant scholarships for nearly 10 million students, cutting clean energy investments by 19%, and slowing scientific and medical research by eliminating tens of thousands of grants.

Paul Ryan’s plan would end Medicare as we know it

Paul Ryan’s extreme budget would end Medicare as we know it, turning it into a voucher program which would increase seniors’ health costs by $6,350 a year. Ryan has also proposed a plan that would have privatized Social Security, subjecting seniors’ retirement security to the whims of the stock market.

Paul Ryan is severely conservative

Like Mitt Romney, Ryan’s severely conservative positions are out of touch with most Americans’ values. He would take us backward on women’s health and equal rights.

Paul Ryan would take us backward on women’s health:
Ryan cosponsored a bill that could ban in-vitro fertilization, as well as many common forms of birth control, including the pill. It could also ban all abortions, even in cases of rape or incest. He supported letting states prosecute women who have abortions and doctors who perform them.

Paul Ryan would take us backward on equal rights:
Ryan voted against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which helps women fight for equal pay for equal work. He voted against repealing the discriminatory policy of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” and supports writing discrimination into the Constitution by amending it to ban gay marriage.

There you have it folks. Paul Ryan is an asshole.

A recent picture of Trig and Tripp

Anonymous July 24, 2012 3:45 PM
aw this picture is so cute!! i love bristol, i look up to her so much! my dream would be to meet her and her family one day. they seem down to earth people who love each other. i love watching her tv bristol palin life's a tripp . i love her and gino together, love seeing gino and tripp together its a happy family and i love that gino cares for tripp so much. wish the palin family much love and support!

look how adorable trig and tripp are!

Yep that's Kristy all right

Going on vacation for a while


Wow, you're a rude one. It's not like SPHASH adds anything to intelligent conversation regarding any subject. She has the maturity of a 4 year old and the depth of a wading pond.

Earlier this year I saw Tripp at a play at the Performing arts center. He was with Bristol's aunt and younger cousin. He was sitting quietly in the front row the whole time loving the show. The fact that a toddler is more mature than adults bloggers is sad.


Anonymous July 28, 2012 2:06 AM
Tripp is a well liked kid. There isn't a person who knows them all who'd tell you differently. He is in daycare with other children remember. Her daycare teacher loves him.

"Her" daycare teacher?  Tripp is a girl?


Yes. Because President Obama is just as bad, has done some pretty shady things, lies even more, has a super mysterious past he won't discuss, and doesn't know how to just lead. Eternal game player and we're fucked under him.

You can tell the only hate bloggers who tout Obama as being great and denigrate Bush are young and inexperienced. Or they're just ignorant.


Do you ACTUALLY know anything about the AIP, or are you just basing your judgments on generalities , hearsay, and ignorance?

I know you're young and have no real perspective, but if I were you, I wouldn't want to display this kind of bias and ignorance so openly.


Bristol Palin really hates Tripp


Wow, you're literally acting like Tripp is an anomaly. The age range of 3-4 years is rough for any parent. A kid talks back most during this time and displays the famous toddler attitude. What do you expect of parents in general, that kids only are around their parents? Tripp's lucky to have such a close family that showers him with love in the Palins. And considering how disciplined he is in activities (riding bike sans training wheels and watching a 3 hour play), it sounds like he's pretty mature for his age. Don't cancel out the positive because of a few typical negatives.

Well, Tripp does love babies. He's certainly around enough and is adorable when holding one. Such a good boy. Such love from him. And so active. Bristol certainly knows how to keep a kid entertaining: sports, camping, playdates with his best buddy, batting cages, bike, fishing.....

I'm not saying Levi should be exempt. I think 50/50 custody would be ideal.

They're forgetting that 1. Levi is starting work soon 2. Breeze is due in 2 months. 3. It will be hard on Tripp to not have his best friends around him. I think the best arrangement would be like 2-3 full days for Levi for now. Levi's days off maybe.
Gotta be realistic. Tripp is a happy, typical boy. He's not devoid of anything.



Levi is guilty of most of those things, something he himself seems to be trying to forget. Who first sold Tripps picture? SAdie AND Levi, before BRistol did an interview. Remember how everyone was stalking her in those first months of 09.

LAT is full of lovely moments. BUt if they left out the few negative ones, that wouldn't be a realistic portrait of raising kids now would it? I love your bias.

Yeah, she really hates him. They looked so miserable hiking today. NOT. Grow up.

By the by, with this logic and Levi's past statements, he must REALLY hate Tripp.


No one thinks past the one dimension.

WIth all the exaggerated rhetoric going on, (and really, does Levi know anything else but how to exggerate?), here are some thoughts:

If Tripp is such a misbehaved, "downward spiraling child", why is he popular and well-liked at daycare; why would his daycare leader call him her angel boy and tell Bristol that his friends miss him (when he's away for awhile); wouldn't parents of kids on his soccer team gossip about his alleged behavior; what about parents of kids at his Taekwondo class; Why is Bristol a popular babysitter; wouldn't patrons of the performing arts center have complained about a rowdy out of control toddler sitting in the front row of Wizard of Oz? Whats that you say? He was PERFECT for the entire 3 hours? All of this is from the last couple months.

Tripp is 3. almost 4. He's going to naturally want to talk back. It's at this age when boundaries are settling in. It's a trying process. Because all of the above is a true depiction of events and Tripp is indeed a well-liked kid, I would say he's just fine and dandy wouldn't you?

Levi is just as guilty if not more of media manipulation.
He did start the trashtalking, something he obviously wants people to forget. He also has ignored his sister[s vanity and her even more egregious lies and trash talking.
Not to mention that his family was first to exploit him for cash. At least his mother doesnt complain about being poor then turn around and say "23 present for Tripp, anything to see him smile." Sidenote: thats not showing you love him. Thats showing you value materialism with no priorities.

Custody battles are private and between parents, the only people who will ever have legal say in their child. It doesn't matter how much propaganda Sunny posts on facebook or how much she ignores of her bf's past. She and he can't rewrite his past decisions made from immaturity. The only two people who will ever have legal say in Tripp are his parents.

RIP Curtis Menard


Track has Todd's face shape, eyebrows, ears, nose (though Todd and Sarah have similar noses). Track has a Palin cousin who could be his twin, esp as a child. What's more interesting to me is that Todd's daughter and said cousin's son, about the same age, could be fraternal twins. I love how genes work.


People ignore the fact that Track strongly resembles todd and various members of his family at several stages of his life. They ignore old friends of Curtis who are hurt by these lies. They ignore that there is actually not much physical similarity between the two in actuality. They ignore the fact that all the Menards are good friends of all the Heaths. They ignore the fact that Mollys youngest sons middle name is Curtis.


Wakeup, I would hate to live inside your head. So barren. I would hate to be someone who doesn't insist on truth and facts to form opinions and judges people they don't know anything about. You live in a sad place mentally. I hope you get better.

In the bottom left specially, you can see the strong Palin and Heath genes. None of these indiv pic have even been flipped, let alone altered. 

It's just sad there are anonymous people who love concocting absurd stories with zero proof. No thought towards the feelings of everyone involved. I feel for Curtis' ex gf, middle and high school and a good adoelscent friend of Sarah who was hurt when her friends sent her stories like these. So many lies told about their Alaskan childhoods. And most of the liars are known around Wasilla. People aren't dumb.


I love how the people who hate her are keeping her relevant. You're creating your own hell and that's hilarious. Such sad and hateful people exist in the liberal blogosphere.

They all enjoyed their too-cute-for-words granddaughters birthday and enjoying life and you're creating more hate for the world.

Priorities my friend matter and yours are sad.

So Sarah are you going to demand that Jim Roddey apologize to President Obama?


From New Jersey newsroom

Republicans suck at many things these days. They can’t legislate without consulting with Trailer Park Jesus or Brooks Brothers Jesus; they can’t scratch their ass without consulting with a guy named Grover. But if there’s one particular area of human enjoyment left that they are downright awful at, or just simply fall flat like German diver Stephen Feck, it’s humor. In order to excel at humor, you need to a) have a sense of humor, and b) be self-depreciating and outside the establishment power structure, both of which are so distant from Republicans that not even the Curiosity Rover could find them. Show me a funny conservative and I’ll see your bet with the lost continent of Atlantis, a unicorn, and Aphrodite’s Magic Girdle.
Enter Jim Roddey.

Long-time Pennsylvania GOP official Jim Roddey reportedly got a raucous reception yesterday when he labeled a supporter of President Obama as someone who is “mentally retarded.” No word yet if he fell down to mock people with cerebral palsy.

“There was a disappointment tonight. I was very embarrassed,” Roddey told the crowd at an election night party, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I was in this parking lot and there was a man looking for a space to park, and I found a space for him. And I felt badly — he looked like he was sort of in distress. And I said, ‘Sir, here’s a place.’ And he said, ‘That’s a handicapped space.’ I said, ‘Oh, I’m so sorry, I saw that Obama sticker and I thought you were mentally retarded,’” said Roddey, reported the Huffington Post.

Yes, anyone who would support the guy who actually killed Bin Laden, can pronounce nuclear without having a seizure, thinks gays should be able to be just as miserable as heterosexual couples, and has attempted to clean up Wall Street and the previous administration’s economic disaster over the guy who doesn’t even know what he believes day by day and can’t even tell the American electorate how he earned all of his millions by releasing all of his tax returns is most certainly mentally retarded.

The bigger question is where’s good old Spongebrain Squarehair from Alaska and all of her self-righteous, syntax-slaughtering indignation? This is a woman who after all went after a freaking cartoon over its supposed insensitivity towards mentally deficient individuals as well as unleashed her unholy caribou Barbie hell on Rahm Emanuel after he used the word retarded. Perhaps it was because the joke was made by a fellow Republican so it’s totally cool.

In short, this is what happens when politicians try to be comedians; they forget their primary purpose in life is to be liars and to kiss the electorate’s behind around reelection time. But that Palin has yet to come out against Roddey’s joke proves once again that she is nothing more than a manufactured partisan shill, who uses her special needs kid as a political prop whenever it suits her and her freak show of a family.

So Sarah are you going to call President Obama and smooth his hurt feelings over?  Oh never mind.

Sarah Palin opens her piehole about Chick-fil-a


While Dan Cathy has a right voice his opinion, others have a right to boycott him.  So there.

And Sarah is the last person on earth to criticize gay marriage.  She, her sister, her mother and her daughter were all knocked up before marriage.

RIP Curtis Menard



Curtis Menard was a good friend of Sarah's. She and Curtis grew up together and Curtis's father Curtis Sr. and Chuck were pals. Starting in Jr. High Sarah developed a massive crush on young Curtis but it was never reciprocated.

Eventually after high school Sarah started on her multi-college tour while Curtis graduated from the University of Iowa dental school. Sarah and Todd married in Aug 1988 and moved into an apartment next door to Curtis. Rumor has it that Sarah and Curtis were getting it on while Todd was away during the commercial fishing season. As a result Sarah became pregnant with Track hence the quickie wedding to Todd.

It has been speculated that Curtis is the biological father of Track due to Track bearing some likeness to Curtis.

Shortly after Piper's birth in March 2001 Curtis went to Sarah's mayoral office in Wasilla and had a discussion with her about the way she was raising her children.  The conversation was heated.  Later on this day in 2001 Curtis went out on his airplane only to crash and perish. The plane crashed due to contaminated gas.

Did Sarah or Todd purposely sabotage the gas tanks?  God only knows.

Jared Loughner pleads guilty in Tucson shooting


As you all know by now Jared Loughner entered a plea of guilty in the Tucson Arizona shooting last year that left six people dead and wounded a thirteen others, including AZ Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.  He will be spending the rest of his life in prison.

Mark Kelly Gabby's husband released a statement:

"Gabby and I have been in contact with the U.S. Attorneys' Office throughout this process.  We don't speak for all of the victims or their families, but Gabby and I are satisfied with this plea agreement.

The pain and loss caused by the events of January 8, 2011 are incalculable.  Avoiding a trial will allow us - and we hope the whole Southern Arizona community - to continue with our recovery and move forward with our lives."

Also speaking out was US Rep Ron Barber who replaced Gabby.  He called the plea agreement fair and just.

I feel sadness as I type this.  Sadness for the families of the victims who died, sadness for the survivors.  We need a much better mental health care system in this country.  Hopefully ACA will take care of that.

During her time as Governor Jan Brewer cut mental health care funding to almost zero.  If she hadn't done that Jared would have gotten help and six people would still be alive.  It is also ironic that Ronald Reagan was shot by a madman in 1981 then he cut mental health care funding as well.

The Tucson shooting, the shooting in Aurora CO, and the recent shooting in Wisconsin, all three states are red states where gun laws are lax.  This proves not everyone should own a gun.

We also need to cut down the hateful, vitriolic rhetoric in the country as well, especially since this is a major election year.  Hear that Sarah?

Vacation pictures and video

As promised I'm posting pictures and videos from my vacation. Enjoy!

Riding on the 1880 Train

Badlands National Park

Buffalo in Custer State Park

Bighorn Sheep in Custer State Park


Prairie Dog

Antelope

Mountain Goat

Turkey

Deer

Legion Lake

Burro

Stockade Lake

Horsethief Lake near Mt Rushmore.  I stayed here the last three nights of my vacation.  I stayed in Custer State Park four nights and Badlands one.

Crazy Horse.  It doesn't look like they made much progress since I was last there two years ago.


Mt. Rushmore.  I have a post scheduled next week regarding it.

Rockerville, an old mining town between Hill City and Rapid City

On top of Rankin Ridge in Wind Cave National Park

On top of Hearney Peak the highest point in South Dakota.  If you ever make it the Black Hills, I highly recommend you make this hike up there.

Bikers near Rushmore.  The Sturgis rally started on August 6th and many bikers show up days before then.  I got out in time.

Also if you are a wine aficionado, check out Prairie Berry Winery in Hill City.  I have stopped there the last three times I was in the Black Hills and took part in the wine tasting.  This trip I bought a bottle of Blue Suede Shoes which is 90% grape and 10% blueberry.  The Goldigger and Apricot are good too.

Blue Bell Dining Room in Custer State Park was the best meal I had.  I had a Buffalo Ribeye with fried potatoes, pork beans and cornbread.  Expensive but worth it.  Pizza Works in Custer is the best place to get Pizza.

Back in the 1990's I worked at Sylvan Lake Resort in CSP during the summer months I was off from college.  It was the best time of my life.  I made many friends there that I still stay in contact with today.  That is one of the reasons the Black Hills is so near and dear to me.  The beauty of the Black Hills is another.

Levi Johnston is now suing for FULL custody of Tripp



From TMZ

Levi Johnston believes Bristol Palin is a TERRIBLE PARENT -- and the proof is in her reality show ... in which she lets their son Tripp run wild, talk back, curse, and show no respect to his elders ... so he's decided to take action ... and seek full custody.

In case you're like most of the country, and haven't been watching Bristol's new reality show "Life's a Tripp" --  her and Levi's son has been a little ball of trouble ... and in one recent episode, even called his aunt Willow the f-word.

 During the same episode, Bristol admits, "I'm doing a terrible job disciplining Tripp."

Now, Levi's had enough -- telling TMZ, he's been watching the show and is "disgusted" by his son's language and behavior. Levi says his son is on a "downward spiral" and getting "no real parenting."

Levi tells us, Tripp "deserves a better family" than what Bristol and the rest of the Palins are providing -- adding, "I love my son more than anything .. and I will do whatever it takes to make sure he is raised the right way."

To ensure that happens, Levi dropped by the courthouse in Wasilla, Alaska this week to pick up all the necessary paperwork to obtain full custody of Tripp -- and he plans to file it ASAP.

Calls to Bristol were not returned.

I have to make one correction in this article.  The courthouse is in Palmer, not Wasilla.

Anyways I think Levi has a very good case.  I outlined all the reasons why Bristol is a bad mother yesterday.

And Levi has a job now as an electrician so he has some money and his lawyer may be working pro-bono.  However I think Levi should set up a legal defense fund.  If Sarah Palin and George Zimmerman can do it why can't he?



Good luck Levi!

Bristol Palin really hates Tripp

Now that Bristol's unreality show is over, I honestly think she hates Tripp.

 She talks about her sex life and accuses Levi of rape in her book:



She disparages Levi right in front of Tripp

She laughs when Tripp calls Willow a faggot:


She also lied to Tripp about Levi coming to meet him at a park.

She encourages Tripp to stick his tongue out at the paparazzi:

 She dragged Tripp around the country during her book tour:

She used Tripp for photo ops:



Now she is dragging Tripp back to Hollywood for DWTS.  Poor kid has lived in three different states and he is not even four years old yet.




No good mother would put her son through this. But Bristol does. Shame on you Bristol. Shame on you!!!

Another shooting

My prayers and thoughts go out to my neighbors across the Mississippi River in Wisconsin as they deal with the shooting in Oak Creek. It sounds like it is a domestic terrorist attack as it occurred at a Sikh temple. Hang in there Wisconsin! I'm sure your Governor will tout this as a reason to relax more gun laws.

I'm back

Got back yesterday from my vacation to my favorite and most beautiful place on Earth, the Black Hills of South Dakota.

I will post pics later this week.

While I was gone I see the Palins did a lot of shit, Bristol is back on DWTS, Sarah stuck her nose in the Chic-fil-a controversy and campaigned for Steelman and Cruz, and Harry Reid called out Mitt Romney on his tax returns.  I will have my thoughts on all those topics this week as well.

I also see Krusty has been busy.

The Alaskan Independence Party: The Last Refuge of a Scoundrel

From Huffington Post

In 2004, America's malleable mainstream media allowed itself to be manipulated by artful Republican operatives into devoting weeks of broadcast attention and drums of ink to unfairly desecrating John Kerry's genuine Vietnam heroics while obligingly muzzling serious discussion of George W. Bush's shameful wartime record of evasion and cowardice.

Last week found the American media once again boarding Republican swift boats against this season's Democratic candidate armed with unfair and hypocritical attacks artfully designed by GOP strategists to distract attention from the cataclysmic outcomes of Republican governance. Vice Presidential hopeful Sarah Palin has taken to faulting Senator Barack Obama for his casual acquaintance with a respected Illinois educator Bill Ayers, who forty years ago was a member of the Weathermen, a movement active when Obama was eight and which he has denounced as "detestable." Palin argues that the relationship proves that Obama sees "America as being so imperfect that he is palling around with terrorists who would target their own country."

The Times dedicated a page one article to Obama's relations with Ayers and CNN's Anderson Cooper obliged Palin by rewarding her reckless accusations about Obama's patriotism with a major investigative report. Fox, meanwhile, is still riveting its audience with wall to wall coverage of this pressing irrelevancy.

But if McCarthy-era guilt-by-association is once again a valid political consideration, Palin, it would seem, has more to lose than Obama. Palin, it could be argued, following her own logic, thinks so little of America's perfection that she continues to "pal around" with a man--her husband, actually--who only recently terminated his seven-year membership in the Alaskan Independence Party. Putting plunder above patriotism, the members of this treasonous cabal aim to break our country into pieces and walk away with Alaska's rich federal oil fields and one-fifth of America's land base--an area three-fourths the size of the Civil War Confederacy.

AIP's charter commits the party "to the ultimate independence of Alaska," from the United States which it refers to as "the colonial bureaucracy in Washington." It proclaims Alaska's 1959 induction as a state "as illegal and in violation of the United Nations charter and international law."

AIP's creation was inspired by the rabidly violent anti-Americanism of its founding father Joe Vogler, "I'm an Alaskan, not an American," reads a favorite Vogler quote on AIP's current website, "I've got no use for America or her damned institutions." According to Vogler AIP's central purpose was to drive Alaska's secession from the United States. Alaska, says current Chairwoman Lynette Clark, "should be an independent nation."

Vogler was murdered in 1993 during an illegal sale of plastic explosives that went bad. The prior year, he had renounced his allegiance to the United States explaining that, "The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government." He cursed the stars and stripes, promising, "I won't be buried under their damned flag...when Alaska is an independent nation they can bring my bones home." Palin has never denounced Vogler or his detestable anti-Americanism.

Palin's husband Todd remained an AIP party member from 1995 to 2002. Sarah can be described in McCarthy-era palaver as a "fellow traveler." While retaining her Republican registration, she attended the AIP's 1994 convention where the party called for a draft constitution to secede from the United States and create an independent nation of Alaska. The McCain Campaign has reluctantly acknowledged that she also attended AIP's 2000 Convention. She apparently found the experience so inspiring that she agreed to give a keynote address at the AIP's 2006 convention and she recorded a video greeting for this year's 2008 convention. In other words, this is not something that happened when she was eight!

So when Palin accuses Barack of "not seeing the same America as you and me," maybe she is referring to an America without Alaska. In any case, isn't it time the media start giving equal time to Palin's buddy list of anti-American bombers and other radical associates?

It's time that Todd's AIP ties be scruntized and exposed
