To those who are reading what is left in the comment section--no, John wasn't lying, we weeded out a lot of the trash. There was plenty there, and there is plenty left...we have allowed hundreds of comments. But since his post, and the fact that you now must be logged in and be identified, the tone has changed somewhat. We will NOT allow this to become a place for libs, patrolling the Internet with nothing better to do, to come here and bully us or others. It's my blog and I have that right. You don't like it, go someplace else or get your own blog....all comments will be moderated. Use profanity, you will not be posted.
Your comments do NOT bother me. They amuse me, and some make me very sad at the state of our nation. They do not, nor will they EVER, convince me to change my vote--although I know that isn't your intention. Your intention is to bully me and other conservatives, moderates, libertarians, and conservative democrats into voting for your candidate, and this chic isn't buyin' that for a second.
Hussein is Obama's MIDDLE name, one that he demanded that the mainstream media not use. THAT is why we use it. We are not calling him a terrorist, or a Muslim, and to those who suggest it's not his name, check your facts....to those who accuse us of NEVER using McCain's middle name--we do use it here, if you'd take the time to look. To those who suggest McCain/Palin are advocating violence, I would ask you--whose party is threatening riots if their candidate loses? Which party is fraudulently filling out voter registration cards by the thousands? (although this has nothing to do with violence) I could list many other examples, but I think that is sufficient. None of our candidates have condoned the ridiculous things being yelled by people in a crowd, and you would do well to police your own crowds before you try to police ours.
From now on, the Palin kids are off limits. If you comment in any way on the children, your comment will not be published. They are not fair game, and it will not be tolerated here. Additionally, we are not an advertising site for copycat blogs (that oppose McCain/Palin) wishing to gain media attention.
For those of you wishing to criticize those of us who participated in the interview last evening, remember this: out of nearly 4 hours of interview, CNN chose to run less than 4 minutes, and believe me when I say--they were somewhat fair, but they portrayed us to be "fans" more interested in Sarah because of her lipstick and enthusiasm rather than the issues. The bulk of our conversation with Randi Kaye had much more substance than that. She chose not to use it--and that came as no surprise.
To those that are angry I that allow the left to be heard here at all...I wish to expose you to who they really are. They have done that well here. I hope you have learned from it. I am sorry if you are offended, but you certainly aren't forced to open the comment section and read! We are trying to sift through the garbage left overnight and will dispose of it as soon as we are able.
We will now get back to what is most important in this election--THE ISSUES and THE CHARACTER of the candidates. I will, when things come up, defend Governor Palin or Senator McCain...that's the purpose of this site: to inform you on the issues and to sift through the trash. We will do that to the best of our ability!
Have a great weekend all...and thanks for stopping by!
