I'm in love with Gov. Palin

I'll admit it I was expecting Senator McCain to choose Governor Romney as his running mate. Someone that I had a little confidence in but worried me because of his 2nd Amendment stance and the fact he is a city slicker. I was hoping for a true conservative that doesn't compromise and I've heard some really good things about Governor Jindahl and Governor Palin I was hoping beyond hope for either one of these two.

So, you can only imagine my sheer joy when I woke up this afternoon and heard she was the one tapped for the position.

I knew she was a hunter (Fox News had a great picture of her firing a semi-auto 5.56 rifle that I'm sure floored the brady bunch), I knew she was pro-life (and surprise she lives her convictions), and I know she's pro-drilling.

The more the media has covered this VP pick the more impressed I became with her. Not only is she the conservative I've been waiting for, she is my dream woman...breaks my heart she's married.

The brilliance of this choice is she is a pro-life gun toting hick. This means she is not only the exact opposite of the democrat ticket she is everything that Senator barry hates and if it causes some women to vote for the Republican ticket it is just a net gain.

This is the first time I've ever really been proud of any of Senator McCain's choices.

I'm Glad the Twins are on a West Coast road trip

I'm a news junkie, I have been a news junkie since I was about ten years old when I would watch with my dad and I'd have the chance to ask questions at the dinner table about current events and he would at times play 'devil's advocate' if he thought my beloved sister or I was just parroting what he believed, causing us to have to think through what we believed and why.

As I grew up, I became more interested in politics and I read that evil communist manifesto, 1984, Animal Farm, das kapital, and several other books on marxism and also Capitalism. There is nothing that I don't know about socialism that would surprise me and I can smell liberal point of view from a mile away...full blown socialism two miles. Because of this I have no need or desire to watch, listen or see any of the dnc convention. Well, strike that. There was one speaker I had tuned into the convention, the President of United Tribes Technical College was going to be speaking on the necessity of secondary education for the Nations. Since this is an issue that is important to Dakotans I dutifully tuned in at his appointed time to speak to C-Span...nothing. I guess I shouldn't be surprised because to easterners race relations are no greater than a black/white issue.

So this evening I tuned into the Sci-Fi channel to watch Eureka and to my horror keith obermann, who really dixie chicked himself by attaching to msnbc...I can't even watch him cover football any more because he's just vile towards those that have the audacity to disagree with him, almost have an accident at the thought of mrs. bill clinton speaking at the convention tonight...I even had to check to make sure it was the Sci Fi channel.

In an attempt to be bi-partisan I have no intention to watch the RNC either, well maybe I'm not being that bi-partisan because Senator McCain is no Conservative and I'm no party hack.

Even with the Minnesota Twins being in a four game loosing streak, I'm glad they are on a West Coast road trip because I have something to watch.

"Bitter 85 yr old American" makes burglar call the Police

AP is reporting:

POINT MARION, Pa. - An 85-year-old woman boldly went for her gun and busted
a would-be burglar inside her home, then forced him to call police while she
kept him in her sights, police said. "I just walked right on past him to the
bedroom and got my gun," Leda Smith said.Smith heard someone break into her home
Sunday afternoon and grabbed the .22-caliber revolver she had been keeping by
her bed since a neighbor's home was burglarized a few weeks ago."I said 'What
are you doing in my house?' He just kept saying he didn't do it," Smith
said.After the 17-year-old boy called 911, Smith kept holding the gun on him
until state police arrived at her home in Springhill Township, about 45 miles
south of Pittsburgh.The boy will be charged with attempted burglary and related
offenses in juvenile court, Trooper Christian Lieberum said. He was not
identified because of his age."It was exciting," Smith said. "I just hope I
broke up the (burglary) ring because they have been hitting a lot of places
around here."

Drunk Driving Diversion Programs

KFYR.com is reporting


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ A 12-COUNTY PROGRAM AIMED AT REPEAT
DRUNKEN DRIVERS HAS BEEN RUNNING FOR EIGHT MONTHS NOW. ATTORNEY GENERAL WAYNE
STENEHJEM SAYS THE RESULTS ARE GOOD.
STENEHJEM SPOKE TO A LEGISLATIVE
COMMITTEE ABOUT THE PROGRAM -- AT A MEETING IN DICKINSON.
IT REQUIRES SOMEONE
WHO'S BEEN ARRESTED FOR DRUNKEN DRIVING FOR A SECOND TIME WITHIN 10 YEARS TO
AGREE TO TAKE A BREATH TEST TWICE A DAY -- TO STAY OUT OF JAIL.
IF THEY FLUNK
A TEST -- THEY GO RIGHT TO JAIL, AND THEY WON'T BE ABLE TO GET OUT AGAIN UNTIL
THEY APPEAR BEFORE A JUDGE.
STENEHJEM SAYS 52 OF THE 96 PEOPLE WHO HAVE TAKEN
PART IN THE PROGRAM SO FAR HAVE COMPLETED IT WITHOUT FAILING. OFFICIALS SAY A
DOZEN PEOPLE FAILED.
HANKINSON SENATOR JOEL HEITKAMP IS CHAIRMAN OF THE
LEGISLATURE'S INTERIM COMMISSION ON ALTERNATIVES TO INCARCERATION. HE BELIEVES
THE LEGISLATURE WILL SUPPORT EXPANDING THE PROGRAM.



Since there are too many people in this country that think a tree and a rope is a bit extreme for drunk drivers this program does show some promise in working in cutting recidivism rates of alckies trying to kill innocent people.

I have been to Victim Impact Panels where victims speak to those that have been sentenced because of their illegal activity where mom's presentation has deeply effected those in attendance. Speaking from anecdotal experience she only has had 20 repeat offenders out of the 1000s she has spoken too.

While no program is perfect anything that helps keeps the roads safe and the cost to the tax payer to a minimum is a good program. I'm hoping the state expands these programs and keeps the innovation because innocents shouldn't have to pay for the selfishness of criminals.

The Olympics threated by islamic extremists

Skynews is reporting that a muslim group is threatening the Olympic games. While this shouldn't be a shocker and realize that zeal can circumvent intelligence, BUT China has no problem rounding up and killing their own people and the do not encumber themselves the way the US does in a fight.

So, my question is how stupid do you have to be to threaten a nation with a one billion man army, that has no qualms about the deaths of their own people and need more oil than what the US does. I may have been in the peanut gallery to long but it just seams like the muslims are just begging the the commies to take out iran.

Allan Saylor, age 11, gets a hole-in-one third time golfing

The Bismarck Tribune is reporting that Adam Saylor got a hole-in-one at Mandan Municipal Golf Course. It makes me wonder how many old duffers around here are going to give up golfing because of this story.

I heartily Congratulate Adam Saylor.

What scares me about Senator barry

Senator barry has said people are afraid because he doesn't look like the other Presidents on our currency. Well, that's not exactly accurate...he reminds me of another marxist..fdr. FDR would open his cabinet meetings with, "Good morning my fellow socialist." Senator barry's energy's plan is nothing more than a redistribution of wealth straight out of das kapital or fdr's graduated income tax. Senator barry's beliefs are closer to che guveria than Adam Smith's.


Senator barry's 'bitter comments' remind me of what happens when politicians don't like bitter religious people that want to have nothing to do with what Washington wants. I also know about his anti-self-defense bills he voted for in the IL Senate. We don't want to live like the British where law abiding citizens acting to protect a family member go to prison and a monster goes free.

Senator barry saying that we can't use his real name, can't put the squeeze on his wife that was making policy points, his racist religious leader is off limits. I worry when ANY politician wants to limit free speech whether it is a democrat, trent lott, or mccain-feigngold campaign finance reform.

More taxes. My life won't get any better if my buddy Jeff has to pay more taxes, well he does want socialized medicine...that might help change his mind...I may have to rethink that.

Socialized Medicine it may only work for cityslickers, but my people will end paying for it with no benefit.

Senator barry thinks we can get away from oil and head toward 'alternative fuels,' that don't exist

I don't believe Senator barry is a muslim, but I don't think he's a Christian either. It is IMPOSSIBLE to be a Christian and a marxist (see the manifesto). I worry about ANY politician no matter what their political stripe that thinks that the government knows better, and I worry about people that think man is basically good, having to force a total lack of knowledge of human nature to believe this.

Lastly, I get that Senator barry wants to label those of us that oppose his beliefs as racist, but someone that hides who they truly are for part of their life, like calling themselves barry instead of barrak in college has no right to claim racism. I'm really tired of cityslickers trying this. I may be a sexist but I'm no racist.
