If Sarah Palin talked like a pirate

… on today’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day, it might go something like this:

“I am one who, on Talk Like a Pirate Day, which is certainly today in our beloved state of Alaska would be a day where I be saying “aaarrrghh” and shaking my cutlass at that lily-livered Putin rearing his eyepatch over there in Russia where that Obama said where he wouldn’t put missiles, that scurvy son of a Kenyan.

palin

Former Alaska governor-turned Pirate Queen Sarah Palin

Did ye know ye can see Russia from my crow’s nest?

I also certainly want to preclude that the bilge-sucking Obama should be keelhauled for making old people walk the government death planks, which doesn’t even make sense! I mean, health care reform will make our country run out of buried treasure except Alaska with its oil, which is buried too and I have the map but it’s different because it’s black. But I thought I should say before I stop but not quit because I never quit because Americans don’t do that no matter what the hornswoggling media claim that it may be tempting and more comfortable to just keep ye pirate hat down and plod along on your wooden leg and “go with the flow” but I won’t do that.

Avast, only dead landlubbers go with the flow, so later this month I’m weighing anchor with my first mate Todd to hunt for plunder in Hong Kong. Then we set sail for the White House, which we expect to capture by 2012.

Ye betcha! :wink: palin wink

I am surprised that Jay, being such an outspoken opponent of corruption, has yet to write about Charlie Rangel’s tax evasion. I guess he is too fixated on the things that really matter, like doing lame parodies of Sarah Palin.

I guess Jay is much more of an outspoken opponent of Republicans than an outspoken opponent of corruption. He sure doesn’t have any problem with crooked Democrats.

“Top Russian official: no missiles near Poland”

MOSCOW (AP) – Russia has scrapped a plan to deploy missiles in a region near Poland after President Barack Obama dumped his predecessor’s plan for a U.S. missile defense in Eastern Europe, a Russian deputy defense minister said Saturday. Vladimir Popovkin told Ekho Moskvy radio that Obama’s move has made the deployment of Iskander short-range missiles in the Kaliningrad region unnecessary.

“GOP lawmaker warns against health care changes”

WASHINGTON (AP) – Republicans maintain the Obama administration’s attempt to overhaul the health system will lead to government-run health care that causes delays in treatment, threatening your health and even worse. Rep. Sue Myrick of North Carolina issued the latest warning against a Democratic-backed health care overhaul as she recalled her fight with breast cancer. She said in the GOP’s weekly radio and Internet address that her diagnosis “took six doctors, three mammograms and one ultrasound before they finally they found my cancer. This process took only a few weeks.”

Well, Sarah reminds me of her in some way I can’t explain, but while I know she’s not in “those” movies (one would hope), as a poker player who believes in hunches, something is going to come down on her…I’d bet on it.

She will make a lot of money off of the “social conservative” wing of the Republican party over the coming years but she will never make it to elected national office.

Oh, another liberal columnist drooling over Palin. Imagine that. (yawn)

Let’s see here, Nancy Pelosi said this week that those who oppose ObamaCare and Democrats are prone to violence. No, I’m not kidding here:

“I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw … I saw this myself in the late ’70s in San Francisco,” Pelosi said, choking up and with tears forming in her eyes. “This kind of rhetoric is just, is really frightening and it created a climate in which we, violence took place and … I wish that we would all, again, curb our enthusiasm in some of the statements that are made.”

Huh, well that’s interesting. In DC earlier this week over 100,000 Conservative protesters had a rally and not one single arrest was made, let alone any property damage. Now compare that to the leftists who protested the G4 Summit. Uh huh. Of course, I won’t bring up that poor old Conservative ObamaCare protester who got his finger bitten off or that Conservative ObamaCare protester who got beaten up or that left winger who trashed a Democrat’s office spraying it with Nazi symbols in the hopes Conservatives would get blamed (Google them). Cry me some more tears, Nanny Pelosi.

Now, you do realize that being against ObamaCare and higher taxes means you are a racist, or in Pelosi’s term, “wearing Swastikas.” Okay. Next up is the ACORN bust. Who amongst us is actually surprised that people (liberals naturally) are saying *that* is racist. And Bertha Lewis, ACORN CEO, said they are coordinated “attacks.” What? No domestic terrorist name calling here?

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32909302/ns/politics-washington_post

“The White House is collecting and storing comments and videos placed on its social-networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube without notifying or asking the consent of the site users, a failure that appears to run counter to President Obama’s promise of a transparent government and his pledge to protect privacy on the Internet.”

Yeah, I’m sure the DNC media would be so silent if the Bush administration did that, kinda like “illegal” wiretapping – oh wait, Obama extended that Bush program, my bad! Well give this White House some credit: at least they shut down that “snitch on your neighbor bad mouthing ObamaCare” website.

“Without ever having been reviewed by either the New York Times or the Washington Post, Mark Levin’s Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto has now sold one million copies, according to its publisher, Threshold Editions.”

Yawn. Par for the course in liberal DNC media land.

“Senate Democrats are going to have to move forward on healthcare without a single Republican supporter after Sen. Olympia Snowe said Tuesday she could not back the Finance Committee’s bill.”

So loooooong, fair weeeeeeell, auf Wiedersehen….(that’s a lyric in The Sound Of Music for you Obama voters).

“It’s not every day that you hear a Democratic senator charge that a fellow Democrat is proposing to raise taxes on the middle class, but that is what happened on Tuesday when Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., ripped into the health-care bill developed by Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mt., the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. The West Virginia Democrat worries, however, that a lot of middle class workers, like the coal miners in his state, will end up facing “a big, big tax” under the Baucus bill because they currently enjoy generous employer-provided health care benefits which they receive tax free.”

Phbbbbbttttt. You think the Pelosicrats and Obama are going to listen to this guy when they totally ignored the CBO’s warnings? Man please. They have a mandate to pass for an extreme minority of Americans!

“The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 32% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-nine percent (39%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -7″

Those RACISTS!!!

By the by, who out there wants to bet that GM will be back in Washington asking for more money, especially when they are forced to build ecobox death traps for Obama’s “green” world? Yeah, that Obama who wants to rid the world of nukes circa Carter.

I paid into Social Security a part of my paycheck and in exchange, I get a retirement benefit once I qualify. I like that security. Obviously, you don’t. Big deal. That was hardly the issue in the video that I posted though. What did you think about the background info on Dick Armey. He should be a little more grateful for all that the tax payers have provided him with over the years and a little less hypocritical now that he has his off our backs. The same holds for all those that complain about government benefits while reaping their benefits and denying the same for those that actually paid for them. Hypocrites, liars and scum.

What do you mean “guaranteed return”. When I get a SS statement in the mail every year, even the government tells me that it’s running out funds and will be paying out less money than they expected.

Why not stick the money in a ROTH IRA instead…if you want safety put it into an indexed bond fund.

Or use it to start up a small business.

Or fund an annuity.

Whatever.

How about you show me YOUR investment prowess and tell me the return your getting in your social security “investment”? Are you getting a 10% return on your money? 5%? Maybe closer to 1%?

And the larger point, besides the fact that Social Security is an even worst “investment” than stuffing cash in a coffee can and burying it in the backyard, is the fact that I should be able to do whatever the hell I want with my own money.

Social security is guaranteed and backed by the same government that backs all those loans from countries like China and other investors. There is no safer investment. There is nothing else safer. Even your FDIC-backed interest-bearing bank account is less safe. And, of course the return on investment changes with time on your social security investment but the only way to void it would be by an act of congress that also withstands the scrutiny of the Supreme court and we the people. On the contrary, those investments in stocks and bonds, well, the average annual inflation-adjusted return for the S&P 500 from 2000 through 2008 was -6.3%. What a deal, huh. How did Madoff do it!

NRB – “There is no legitimate defense for the existence of Social Security.”

The defense is that social security is part of the socialist society created by the Democratic & Republican parties over the past 76 years.
Every president & congress since FDR as nurtured, expanded and carefully groomed social security into the “Great American Welfare System” that we have today. And that system is the original social security, plus all of its expansions, Medicare, Medicaid and all of its expansions & SCHIP and all of its expansions.

Now I’m thoroughly disappointed. Not that a liberal would actually take apart and debate my post piece by piece, but in the fact that I was only benignly referred to as a domestic terrorist with the “Unibomber” catch phrase.

NRB,

You do understand what a -6.3% average annual return on the S&P 500 means, don’t you?
——————————————————-
I understand that it does not reflect reality:

http://www.moneychimp.com/features/market_cagr.htm

“Over the very long run, the stock market has had an inflation-adjusted annualized return rate of between six and seven percent.”

And you do realize that the stock market isn’t the only investment that’s out there? Likely not.

But let me ask you this: would you be in favor of letting the government let people “opt out” of paying into social security?

“glenn beck is a modern-day joseph mccarthy”

If so, he is merely parroting the demagoguery favored by the “leaders” of the GOP, who are as is well known, still promoting the Cold War. Or ANY war for that matter.

Is it really possible that this repulsive and repudiated man’s endless list of baseless defamations and mudslinging is still the main cornerstone of modern Republican “thinking” and ideology 50 years on?

Well, let’s see – Ronnie, Newt, BushCo? Yep, shore is.

Be afraid. Be very afraid…

Anyone not making big bucks in the market right now just isn’t trying hard enough. I’ve had a 200% return since April.

Time has an interesting take on Beck titled “Is Beck Bad For America?”

http://www.time.com/time/politics/article/0,8599,1924348,00.html?cnn=yes

No word yet on whether or not Beck is a domestic terrorist. Of course, the left in this nation cares more about how al Qaeda terrorists are treated than Conservatives having the freedom to be dissenters, which was sure good for the left being so during the Bush years.

As have many investors, Bruno.

But over the past year? Two years? Five years?

I’m worried that we’ve learned next to nothing form the debacle – the attempted corporate destruction of capitalism – of last September. Everybody seems to be right back where they were; watching their portfolios and being OK with the fact that a whole bunch of white collar criminals just walked off with 3 trillion dollars of somebody elses (as in our) money.

And BHO hasn’t the stomach, or the you know whats, to seek ANY kind of economic justice from the gangster capitalists on Wall Street, K Street and Main Street…

BTW that was great fun last night. You sir, know your music…

AmVet, how do you view MSNBC’s Keith Olberman, or Janeane Garofalo who said that tea party protesters are racists and ignorant rednecks?

Wow, has Beck replaced Limbaugh as the target of the left? Forgive me, I don’t watch TV so I wouldn’t know…but I keep hearing his name a lot over the past few months, and now he’s on the cover of Time or something?

I’ll have to buy one of his books and check out what the hype is all about. If the idiot liberals are foaming at the mouth over him, he must be doing something right.

Actually, I sold all of my stocks in 2007 in anticipation of the big crash, all documented on the old W2W blog. Timing is everything.

@ Doggone—

I bet your KO intelligence is accurate, carefully and no doubt much appreciated. Did the girls at work sleep with Keith? No doubt his 25 year-old girlfriend Katy Tur at the Weather Channel called Doggone and couldn’t wait to dish what it was like to schtup Keith. Maybe you can swing a book deal, Doggone, or you could try some field research with KO himself. Is KO on Viagra, Ciallis, other PDE5 inhibitors, or ground rhino tusks?

Will it impact the healthcare bill?
