    Actually to many of us, the second coming of Christ is not doomsday - many of us see it as a joyful occasion.

    I'll Fly Away Lyrics


    Some glad morning when this life is o'er,
    I'll fly away;
    To a home on God's celestial shore,
    I'll fly away (I'll fly away).

    [Chorus]
    I'll fly away, Oh Glory
    I'll fly away; (in the morning)
    When I die, Hallelujah, by and by,
    I'll fly away (I'll fly away).

    When the shadows of this life have gone,
    I'll fly away;
    Like a bird from prison bars has flown,
    I'll fly away (I'll fly away)

    [Chorus]
    I'll fly away, Oh Glory
    I'll fly away; (in the morning)
    When I die, Hallelujah, by and by,
    I'll fly away (I'll fly away).

    Just a few more weary days and then,
    I'll fly away;
    To a land where joy shall never end,
    I'll fly away (I'll fly away)

    [Chorus]
    I'll fly away, Oh Glory
    I'll fly away; (in the morning)
    When I die, Hallelujah, by and by,
    I'll fly away (I'll fly away).

    Yes, but won't everyone who doesn't share those exact religious beliefs be killed and sent to Hell because they don't share those exact beliefs? Sounds like doom to me.

    Palin Poll: Struggles Among Women, African-Americans, Non-Elderly
    Public Policy Polling released a study on Thursday revealing that, one year after bursting onto the national scene, Palin still has not made inroads among a variety of key demographic groups. Most significantly, among women the Alaska Republican has only a 37 percent favorable rating compared to a 51 percent unfavorable.
    It isn't just a gender gap that hampers Palin. Only five percent of African-American voters said they had a favorable rating of the former Alaska Governor. Meanwhile, only 37 percent of Hispanics offered a favorable view -- which would seem small if not for the fact that only 31 percent of Hispanics voted for McCain in 2008.

    Frankly I don't know where those that choose not to believe will end up. That's not my decision. That belongs to God.

    I am only accountable for my own life and responsible for raising my children to know God. I can tell others that I believe and I can tell them why I believe. I can tell them that there is a better place waiting after this earth. That is what I believe. I can tell them there is a greater power - God - that He takes care of me and has blessed me every day of my life. I can tell them that He is my Father, and my best friend. I can tell them that we laugh together and He is there whenever I need Him.

    If someone else chooses to not believe - that is their choice. I will pray for them.

    But I am not crazy -- I am not a lunatic -- I am not insane to believe. That is my choice.


    And frankly -- I am a little tired of being labelled these names and told that I can't say I am a Christian because it might offend someone. I believe in God. I believe there is a life after. I believe that God sent his only begotten son to save us from our sins.

    RuPaul Sarah Palin Spoof “Going Vogue” Book Cover

    Palin meant no disrespect with blacked-out hat
    The gossip Web site TMZ ran photos of the former Alaska governor vacationing in Hawaii earlier this week in which Palin is shown with a McCain campaign visor with black marker covering the ex-presidential candidate's name.

    The Web site declared the hat a "frontal attack on Sen. John McCain," but Palin told Politico she was merely trying to "be incognito" while vacationing in Hawaii.

    "I am so sorry if people took this silly incident the wrong way," Palin said in a statement to the Web site. "I adore John McCain, support him 100 percent and will do everything I can to support his reelection. As everyone knows, I was honored and proud to run with him. And Todd and I were with him in D.C. just a week ago. So much for trying to be incognito."

    She apparently thought that if someone saw a visor with McCain on it, they would just assume it was her. Really, does she actually think she is the only woman who owns a McCain visor? Really?

    Todd Palin Goes Rogue with Message Tee
    Taking a cue from Sarah Palin's McCain Visor-Gate, Todd Palin is now speaking his mind with the use of bad fashion too.

    The failed Vice Presidential nominee's man-wife was spotted in President Barack Obama's birth state of Hawaii on Wednesday wearing an American flag t-shirt featuring the quote from country singer John Rich: "If you don't love America ... then why don't you get the hell out."
    That's pretty big talk from a secessionist.

    Backlash boots Palin from hospital fundraising
    The former vice-presidential candidate was supposed to speak at a fund-raising event for the Juravinski Cancer Centre and St. Peter’s Hospital in Hamilton. But a backlash of negative publicity cancelled those plans.

    The Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation received about 60 angry calls and e-mails from residents since the event was announced last week. About 10 people said they would not be donating to any event in which Palin has a role.

    Palin is an out-spoken conservative critic of new public health care plans in the U.S. and is scornful of Canada’s universal health care system.
    As recently as November, Palin was ambushed on her U.S. book tour by Canadian comedian Mary Walsh (disguised a conservative reporter Marg Delahunty ) who asked her about Canadian health care.

    “Canada needs to dismantle its public health-care system and allow private enterprise to get involved and turn a profit,” the former Alaskan governor told Wash and her crew.
    Shut up and go put on some lipstick.

    PolitiFact's Lie of the Year: 'Death panels'
    Of all the falsehoods and distortions in the political discourse this year, one stood out from the rest.

    "Death panels."

    The claim set political debate afire when it was made in August, raising issues from the role of government in health care to the bounds of acceptable political discussion. In a nod to the way technology has transformed politics, the statement wasn't made in an interview or a television ad. Sarah Palin posted it on her Facebook page.

    The Four Bloggers Sarah Palin Bans from Her Events
    The Immoral Minority's Gryphen went with fellow Anchorage blogger Dennis Zaki to a book signing at Wasilla's Sports Center (built for $12.5M during Palin's mayoral tenure, to ethically dubious results) where the pair were barred from entry. From Gryphen's account:
    My first hint that something may be wrong down in Who-ville was when I was asked for my ID, not once, but twice. Then as Dennis and I were about to sign in, and the lady behind the desk took our picture with a little digital camera! ...

    Almost as soon as I had my picture taken I felt a hand on my shoulder.

    I turned around and came face to face with a local police officer who quickly apologized and then informed me that I was on the "banned list".

    "I am on the WHAT list?" I asked.

    "The banned list sir, I am going to have to escort you off of the property. This is a private event."

    On my way toward the door I stopped to wait for Dennis so that we could leave together, however the police officer again placed his hand on my shoulder and insisted that I continue on toward the exit. ... Outside Dennis joined me and told me that he had learned that both he and I were on the banned list, along with Shannyn Moore, and that they even had pictures of us to reference for quick identification.
    The Anchorage Daily News confirms this account, and Gryphen later discovered Palin's banned blogger list contains only four names. So far we know:


    • 1. Gryphen, banned for Sarah-Todd divorce rumors and for resisting Palin's attempt to hold his kindergarten class hostage.
    • 2. Dennis Zaki, banned for being Gryphen's friend and for repeating his rumors on the Alaska Report.
    • 3. Shannyn Moore, Huff Post blogger and local radio host banned for speculating that Palin's gubernatorial resignation was tied to ethics investigations. Moore famously snubbed her nose at Palin's legal threats.

    Just so you know- many Democrats are Christains as well and not blue dog Dems. We are also tired for years being referred to as atheists, communists, and anti American. The door swings both ways on that issue. Dig it.

At this point, she's a private citizen who was there as part of a private, commercial venture. I think the taxpayers of Wasilla deserve an explanation.

    Just so you know - I never said there were Democrats that weren't Christian - just as I never said all Republicans are Christian. Whether you are a Christian, atheist, communist, anti-American - that is your choice -- DIG IT! but in the future perhaps you should read what is written before you start diggin'.

    Bristol Palin Launching PR Firm
    That's what MSNBC's Rachel Maddow reported last night, after digging up documents that Bristol Palin has filed paperwork for a new "lobbying, public relations, and political consulting services" company, BSMP LLC. Her full name is Bristol Sharon Marie Palin.

    According to Palin's lawyer, "The code for BSMP, LLC pertains to several areas but includes public relations. Bristol Palin provides public relations services and is currently an ambassador for the Candie's Foundation."

    The Candie's Foundation is a pro-abstinence organization. As Maddow noted, "Bristol Palin has essentially set herself up to be paid as an incorporated entity as opposed to being paid as an individual and that's sort of a common choice people make when they have money coming in from various sources like this."

    McCain strategist: Palin thought candidacy was mapped by God
    Sarah Palin believed that Sen. John McCain chose her to be his running mate in the 2008 presidential race because of "God's plan," according to a top political strategist in the Arizona Republican's campaign.

    In an interview with the CBS news magazine "60 Minutes," Steve Schmidt described Palin as "very calm -- nonplussed" after McCain met with her at his Arizona ranch just before putting her on the Republican ticket. McCain had planned to name Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.) as his choice until word leaked, sparking what Schmidt called political blowback over selecting the 2000 Democratic vice presidential nominee.

    Schmidt, McCain's chief campaign adviser, said he asked Palin about her serenity in the face of becoming "one of the most famous people in the world." He quoted her as saying, "It's God's plan." Palin has not ruled out a run for the presidency.
    Heilemann: Palin ‘regularly’ said that ‘that Saddam Hussein had been behind 9/11.’ (video included)
    In September 2008, then-Alaska governor Sarah Palin raised eyebrows when she appeared to link the invasion of Iraq to the Sept. 11 attacks, telling “an Iraq-bound brigade of soldiers that included her son that they would ‘defend the innocent from the enemies who planned and carried out and rejoiced in the death of thousands of Americans.’” The McCain campaign claimed at the time that Palin “was referring to al-Qaeda in Iraq, a terror group that formed after the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 and claims to be allied with the global al-Qaeda organization.” But in an interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes last night, New York magazine’s John Heilemann, who is a co-author of a recently released book on the 2008 campaign, said that Palin “regularly” claimed during the campaign “that Saddam Hussein had been behind 9/11.”
    Sarah Palin To Be A Contributor To Fox News
    Sarah Palin will be a contributor to the Fox News Channel, the network has confirmed. Her future appearances are part of a multi-year deal with Fox.

    Palin will not have her own program, but will host an "occasional series." The flexible schedule will allow the former governor time to continue her quest to dominate all forms of media.

    A formal announcement of the deal is anticipated this afternoon. No word yet on how much Palin will rake in for her appearances. Stay tuned for updates.

    I think the Fox move is a good one for her; she can spout all she wants about any & all subjects, without actually having to do any prep work. She can just show up & talk.
    A sidelight of this is that any time she's on the air takes away time from the other Fox commentators; i wonder how long it will be before they start being critical of her.

    I say good for Ex-Governor Palin.

    She also got a nice fat speaking fee to give the keynote address at a pro-alcohol convention in Las Vegas. Family values, you betcha.

  18. #43

    Default

    I would think if the President of the United States could invite some people over to discuss things "over a beer" that Palin doing a keynote address at a beverage/alcohol convention would not be inappropriate. Perhaps Gates and the cop could stop by the convention - grab a beer - and share how they've bonded since they last sat together at the White House.

  19. #44

    Well, she turned down an invite to speak before a teabaggers rally, so apparently the alcohol lobby pays enough for beers for all.

    And unlike the White House - paid for by the alcohol industry not the taxpayers money.

    Four beers cost maybe $15 max? I'm guessing that previous presidents would be allowed to spend that much without people complaining.

  22. #47

    Default

    I wasn't complaining -- just countering what I could not understand as a ding toward Palin because she chose to be a keynote speaker for the alcohol industry or that she chose to speak at a place that pays well.

    There are people with family values that drink responsibly. There are people with family values that are keynote speakers and being paid a lot to speak would be many people's goals.

    There are so many things for which Sarah Palin could be dinged. This one just seemed strange to me.


    BTW - Michelle Kwan rode on a float sponsored by Anheuser-Busch. Should she give up her diplomatic envoy job since she is displaying a lack of family values? Hmmm - didn't think so.

    Well, don't really want to bring Michelle into it, but unlike Palin she has never been one to affiliate with certain preachy groups that pass judgment on peoples' private lives.
    I'll leave it at that.

    As for Palin, I think it's wonderful that she's getting so many speeches (her going rate is $100,000). She can do a few of those & make more in a month than the President earns in a year. And thus will likely decide to not run for office again. Too many pesky rules about money.

    Irish bookie takes bets on Palin’s FoxNews gig
    One day after word came that Sarah Palin is joining FoxNews, Ireland's biggest bookie reports that about half of bettors doubt the ex-Alaska governor can keep the gig a year.

    Calling her "gaffe-prone," bookmaker PaddyPower.com adds that the minority group she's most likely to offend first is gays/lesbians/bisexuals (4-1), followed by African Americans and Muslims (both at 6-1).

    Least likely to bear the initial insult: the Irish, the infirm and Inuits (all tied at 20-1), and Jehovah's Witnesses (25-1).
