Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Revenge of the Putrid Potpourri edition

OK, you lot – pile into the Wayback machine, and travel back in time and space (insert obligatory ELO backwards masking here).

It was a plainer time – a simpler time – a dumber time.

Well, lookee here – it’sDie Harder!

Are we ready to draft Sarah Palin, yet?

Posted on Friday, November 04, 2011 12:20:20 AM byTwoSwords

My first and probably last vanity.

Picture a crowd of people gathered for a political rally. The speaker gives out the old bromide “Why are we here?” The crowd replies in a frenzy. “We want change!” Is this Occupy or a college campus? No, it’s Free Republic. Let’s face it, we all admire our favorite candidates in the Republican field. They all have their strengths and weaknesses, don’t we all. The real problem is that they’re unable to differentiate themselves from each other, in a defining manner. Considering the trampling of rights, unemployment, regulation, immigration, crime, education (lack of and cost of), corruption, lack of leadership, zero (he has to come last, because he’s earned it), why is one of these candidates not really able to capture our desperate imagination? Some will say Cain has done this very thing. Would the majority of them have said the same thing 2-3 months ago? I think not. I think he’s a better man, than I. And I truly mean that. But I don’t sense the killer instinct that is needed right now. Cain is passionate, he’s just not desperate. Desperation is where too many of us living(sic).

Desperation is all right-wingers have.Everything’s a fucking crisis with you yobboes. I’ve been listening to this crap about howfill-in-the-blank is the most horribleist thing EVAR and will immediately cause America to go up like a piece of flash paper – for decades. Know what? Hasn’t happened yet, and isn’t going to happen.

But do you thimble-witted planarians remember and learn? No. You just keep bouncing from manufactured crisis to manufactured crisis, becausethat’s all you have.

We’re debating between Cain, Perry, Romney, Bachmann, Santorum, Gingrigh, Paul. It’s great that we have such a diverse field to choose from and we still haven’t made a decision. The right’s version of diversity is reality. The left’s is checking a box on a form. It will take a person willing to make unlikely political decisions.The left has torn this country usunder(sic) for many a year and many a way and it has to stop. The right has to show it’s(sic) teeth, and if necessary use them. We need to draft Palin. I see no other option where we win back our country from the abject corruption we see daily reported on FR. There are many on this board who consider her a fraud. I never saw that side of her. My favorite study through my life has been military history. I’ve read of the most narcissitic(sic) people in the world over and over, generals and politicians. Ruthless, to the max. Of all the times I’ve seen her on TV I’ve never once sensed a need for political revenge. This, to me, is standard operating procedure for a politician. Never seen it from her. I can’t think of anyone whom I’m not related to that I believe in their goodness and good intentions. No person can be all things to all people (cept Jesus) and maybe she rubbed people the wrong way. Isn’t that normal? I, for one, believe she was put her for a reason, to be President of the United States. I want to re-institute the draft. Just for POTUS.

Paragraphs are your friends.

But what do you have? Perry and the pirates.

Don’t count Palin out. She said recently that she could be persuaded to reconsider her decision if she saw an “earthquake” develop. Many of her supporters heard her say that, and immediately responded with a flood of postcards and letters, begging her to reconsider her decision.

Now, even her brother Chuck is trying to get her to change her mind.

At any press conference the interogatee gets to ask the reporter a question

That sounds ripping!

and if they don’t like/agree w the answer they move onto the next reporter. If the reporter is able to answer the question responsibly they can ask a question.

If it becomes apparent that Romney could be the GOP nominee then drafting Palin could become a reality, as the only way to save us all.

Clint Eastwood talks politics: Who’s the Democrat he voted for? (Read the Article…He’s a Cain Fan)

Posted on Tuesday, November 08, 2011 9:46:35 PM bybuccaneer81

When it comes to the current crop of Republican presidential candidates, if Eastwood is enthusiastic about anyone, it’s Herman Cain. “I love Cain’s story,” he says. “He’s a guy who came from nowhere and did well, obviously against heavy odds. He’s a doer and a straight-talker, which I don’t see enough of from either party.”

Not hardly. In fact, he is raising money even faster. Why? Because NONE of the claims have any substance, not even the last, which dared bare her face.

Truth is, Cain’s supporters have ‘doubled down’ to support him… he’s gaining, not losing. Which just goes to show you that conservatives are a lot smarter than the liberal smear-merchants. I’ve not supported him – yet… but, if push comes to shove, I will.

Climate study confirms what skeptics scoffed at: global warming is real (BS!)
msnbc ^ | 10/21/2011 | Pete Spotts/csm

Posted on Saturday, October 22, 2011 8:54:27 AM bytobyhill

A new climate study shows that since the mid-1950s, global average temperatures over land have risen by 0.9 degrees Celsius (1.6 degrees Fahrenheit), confirming previous studies that have found a climate that has been warming – in fits and starts – since around 1900.

Most climate scientists attribute warming since the mid-1950, at least to some degree, to carbon dioxide emissions from human activities – burning coal, oil, and to a lesser extent gas, and from land-use changes.

The latest results mirror those from earlier, independent studies by scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, the Hadley Center for Climate Prediction and Research in Britain, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

These previous efforts, however, came under fire from some climate-change skeptics who said they had detected serious flaws in the analytical methods and temperature records the three groups used.

Note: The authors of this study refused to let it be peer-reviewed, chosing instead to first release it to the media. That should tell you everything you need to know.

Actually, this looks like a very fair study. It was funded in part by the Koch brothers foundation.They have made all their data and computer programs available for download, so anyone can do a “peer” review.

Peer review has little validity if the reviewers are incestuous with the author – and this is the norm in science. Transparency and full disclosure is much better than peer review. Hopefully this will become the norm in the computer age.

When Heroes Go Down (Thoughts On Russell Pearce’s Recall)
American Rattlesnake ^ | November 9, 2011 | Gerard Perry

Posted on Wednesday, November 09, 2011 12:09:44 AM byOddLane

I’ll discuss this at length in the days ahead, but I’d be remiss in not reporting the news that Senator Pearce seems to have been recalled by voters in Arizona’s Legislative District 18. The people who want to turn Arizona into a haven for illegal aliens would appear to have achieved a significant political victory, although it should be noted that they needed to resort to gross deception in order to win. Even so, it can’t be denied that this is a huge feather in the cap of a well-funded, media-supported open borders political machine and that the strategy used to unseat Majority Leader Pearce will be replicated throughout the country whenever a public official has the temerity to stand up for the civil rights of his constituents.

I’m loathe(sic) to make a snap analysis of tonight’s results, and will temper my remarks by reminding everyone that this fight will be a long, protracted struggle, but the fact that Lewis won by such a large margin will undoubtedly buttress the heretofore weak argument cautioning politicians against taking a tough stand on immigration issues, lest you be punished by “moderate” voters. Until now the chief-some would say only-example of this argument being validated at the polls was the decade-long erosion of support for the California GOP after the retirement of Governor Pete Wilson, a staunch supporter of anti-illegal ballot measure Proposition 187.

This was a bad night all around for the Tea Party, and the fact that our side stayed home but theirs (Obamacrats) turned out. It should also serve as a warning that theDims will stoop to all lows to defeat us,

To: OddLane
The Democrats, media, and liberal interest groups colluded and found a puppet “Republican” to run against Pearce.Pearce lost with 45% of the vote after outside groups poured in money. That is hardly a repudiation of Pearce or attempts to secure our border. If the GOP ran a Democrat against Obama, one slightly to the right of him on most issues and he won by 9% would that be a repudiation of liberalism or Democrats? It is a silly question, because the media would never collude with such a sham.

We should not accept defeat. This was a rigged election and a narrow loss. Has Pearce announced that he will primary Lewis? Because if he has any soul, he will.

Miss. defeats life at conception ballot initiative
Associated Press ^ | Nov.8, 2011 | EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS

Posted on Tuesday, November 08, 2011 9:53:00 PM byFree ThinkerNY

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi voters shot down a referendum Tuesday that would have effectively banned abortions in the state, rejecting an initiative that said life begins at conception.

The so-called personhood initiative was rejected by more than 55 percent of voters. If it had passed, it was virtually assured of drawing legal challenges because it conflicts with the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that established a legal right to abortion.

To: balch3
Actually it’s a reflection of Mississippi voters actually THINKING THROUGH the implications of personhood for a fertilzed egg.

And, fortunately, it removes one of the ways that Republicans could blow the presidential election; probably the most disappointed people in the country that this failed are Obama and his advisors, who were probably salivating at being able to run against it nation-wide.

Heck, forget the miscarriages – what about the failure of a fertilized egg to implant in the uterus, which happens constantly?

Any supporters of the Mississippi proposal – if you or or wife actually discovered that you had a fertilized egg that failed to implant, would you name it, call all your family members, and have a funeral?

And if you’re not TRYING to discover all the fertilized eggs that aren’t implanting, isn’t that gross contempt for human life?

Here’s another good thought experiment.

Let’s say your neighbors are married and 30, and have been married for 10 years. And don’t have any children. Suspicious, no>

Isn’t it your responsibility to report them to Child Protective Services on the suspicion that they’ve been been using birth control pills (which, as we’re continually told by the fanatics, are an “abortifacient”).

These people may have been guilty of killing HUNDREDS of “persons.” Which clearly justifies a warrant and the police coming in and ransacking the house looking for birth control pills.

The ACTUAL strawman is the implication that the Declaration of Independence had fertilized eggs in mind when it referred to “men” – and it wasn’t an implication made by me.

My point was if they DID in fact have fertilized eggs in mind in the Declaration of Independence, given the state of scientific understanding at the time, it’s quite possible that they actually had sperm in mind in the Declaration of Independence.

In which case, we need to go around locking up masturbating men, don’t you think?

Like the other posters, you’re missing the point. If conception is the legal start of personhood, then a one-celled zygote deserves the same protection as a 2, 4, 8 or whatever celled person. Legally, that means a woman could be charged with manslaughter for having a miscarriage or murder for using the pill. You might think a zygote deserves that level of protection. I might even agree, but you’ve got to convince a majority of voters to support you. That’s my point. Most people, even Christians, aren’t willing to treat the death of a freshly fertilized egg, a one-celled zygote, the same as the death of a child.

From what I have read you are right.It was not a law to outlaw abortions, but would have also been illegal to get contraceptives..They went too far and lost the chance to do away with abortions.. The shame is on the radicals that wanted more than abortions to be made illegal…they wanted everything and got nothing...just finished arguing with one that wanted everything made illegal..blame it on them.
