Slopping Hogs

Facebook is full of fun.

Why? Because I can poke little things out there to stir up the masses.

For instance, I have several friends who are very far left wingers. I'm a middle ground player but they might think of me as a right winger...or maybe not. Several of my friends have been posting things about Sarah Palin and making fun of her if she decides to run for President in 2016. I would not even support the issue. I don't dislike her as a person-I don't know her- I just don't think she has a head for running our nation. I would go hunting and fishing or jogging with her any day...but support her in running our country...no way.

So anydebate, her friends were putting jabs out there which were only nasty comments and slides rather than really getting to the meat and potatoes of the whole thing. Sure, they think she is a wing nut, but they were just being mean rather than talking about the political issues a candidate needs to tackle and what she lacked or had knowledge of. They were going on and on as if she had the support and nomination. So...I said she would not have the backing and no one wants to support a losing candidate. I was told I was wrong and had it all backwards, that it was like a nut shell game. I agreed with the fact that no one wants to back a NOT winning candidate.

What do we know about Palin? History tells a lot, although people can change. The problem is if it is genuine. Behavior. Experience. Knowledge of foreign politics. I guess I think of her as a television commentator and I can't take her seriously as a Presidential candidate. I wonder how many people cringe when she speaks on some topics they believe she has no to little understanding. I may have a different view of her than some. I have read her books, I researched a lot of her political views and platforms when she was a running mate with John McCain. Everything she did was not all bad and the media did and still does pick on her or inaccurately portrays some things. She definitely is a soccer mom type who hunts and fishes. This part of her sent out sympathy from me because would they view a woman from an isolated town in Wyoming much the same if she changed her own tires, killed her dinner, and fished for appetizers out of a stream. Accent? Of course if you don't sound like a dry news anchor, you will be made fun of and isn't it funny how southern politicians with thick drawls get a slide, but Alaskans don't? Is it because she comes from a land so different that they aren't REALLY classified with the rest of the 48? What if she plucked raspberries from her garden? Oh, my! A woman Presidential candidate who can cook, clean, ride a horse on the range, and fixes hot dog! Tell me it isn't so! I guess one thing you have to give her credit for...she and her family got publicly flogged and they kept fighting back. Yes, I have a little respect for that. I don't think she is the right material for politics. 

Another friend of mine and of hers posted that according to the logic "here", that if Hillary was any kind of woman, there would be no need for Monica Lewinski. That got me rolling...spit coffee all over the place.

I think it is pointless to argue with these folks or even post my thoughts about the matter because a Republican trying to voice themselves or attempting to have a sounding box on a left wing post is grounds for stoning. I'm sure the same is true in reverse. And people are so steadfast in their ways even if you agree with them...if you are of the other side...it has to be a strategy ploy.

When Democrats are calling someone a "wing nut" or "crazy" perhaps it isn't the best atmosphere to have a serious debate and I should just leave it alone. But I can't help it! I think they taunt me.  I did not even put my two cents in what I think of evil Hillary and why would anyone support a mean woman like that who would not bat twice to play dirty pool politics... OK. I will stop. But I can't! I have grounds for my views and I have back door experiences during the Clinton presidency. And Hillary was already president once, she shouldn't get to play in the sandbox twice. Ok. Enough with the puns.

It's just like the cop haters on news feeds. I have to put my little jabs of common sense out there. It is amazing how many likes you get when you make sense. There is a smile and a warming of the heart. I just got validated! So what if there are only 26 "common sensers" and 1,345,657 "haters" on a page?It's a movement! I should have been a hippie.

On the slamming of Palin, I followed up with the fact that I stood by my ground I didn't think Sarah Palin would get nominated because the majority of Republicans do not support her as a presidential candidate and all this is obvious after the last fiasco. It is how I feel. I think they need some prime meat in the stew, otherwise the Republicans are all going to be tossed out the window as slop for hogs.

So here is a list in no particular order except I believe it was designed by a Democrat because they are in no particular sensical hierarchy except for HILLARY CLINTON IS ON THE TOP LINE in their row. Puhlease. Might I just say, could we confuse people any more with the names like Rand Paul and Paul Ryan? Is the last the first or the first the last. Yikes. What were their parents thinking?

So do any of these look good? Which ones are you watching?

Are you sick of politics yet? We still have 2 more years of this!

I am a strong Conservative without being far right. I wouldn't vote for Sara unless she was actually on the ballot... cannot vote for ANY SOCIALIST Demorat. As for "Behavior. Experience. Knowledge of foreign politics", it didn't seem to stop Obama, the Community Organizer-in-chief - which is a Communist job since the Tsar was overthrown. But in you list of potential candidates, there are very few I could vote for in the General Election.

A woman I graduated with from high school is as Liberal as they come. As County Clerk and Recorder, she issued the first same sex marriage licenses in the country (Yes, in the People's Republic of Boulder).
We are good friends who disagree about most things political, but we disagree without being disagreeable. No name calling. Being mutually respectful, it turns out we do agree about many things.

Momma Fargo said...

Coffeypot, it is no surprise I am no fan of Obama and despite his following of fans, I am not in "agreeance"-that is a word-that Palin is the only person without knowledge. My thing about Obama is I am not so sure he is without knowledge as I am that he refuses to act or do the right thing...or his actions are intended. This combo is much more dangerous than not knowing or having no knowledge, in my opinion.

Momma Fargo said...

WSF-I have many liberal friends the same and we sometimes agree to disagree and we also agree on a lot of issues. It's a funny world how it all works out if you debate and discuss with a calm and cool head and don't just spout out hateful off the cuff things in politics. Not that we are all perfect, but if you want to get to the meat and potatoes...talk it out with facts, courtesy, and respect one another.

The Queen said...

The chances of us even having elections by the time Obamagon is out of here, are so slim this debate is pointless.

But, if I'm wrong and if we survive what we have, I'm running a write in movement for Wheels as Pres and Rook as his running mate!

Momma Fargo said...

Great idea, Queen! We can lobby with them in beers!

Momma Fargo said...

Oh and look...the Republicans have no woman candidate. HOWEVER, the Democrats have more than one. Are the Democrats going to the first to get a black President AND the first to have a woman President?

A. Nona Moose said...

At this point, and it may very well change, will be for Chris Christie. Wait 5 minutes and my feminine side will come out so i can change my mind for no apparent reason

Momma Fargo said...

A. Nona Moose: They will not nominate Chris Christie unless he loses weight. Have you seen any heavy candidates in the last 40 years? My guess is it will be one of the Paul brothers.

A. Nona Moose said...

The guy has already lost a lot of weight and is losing more. Or is this some deep seated prejudice agains large people on your part? Fat people need loving too. (Pun intended)

Momma Fargo said...

Of course I am not prejudiced against fat people. America is. I know he is losing weight, but will it be enough for the American people. Plus, he has pissed off too many people. They will think he is the Gestapo.

A. Nona Moose said...

Every pol has enemies. He probably made more fans from the bridge scandal than he lost.

Momma Fargo said...

Nona, girly, I must tell you that you might be right. However, that only works for Democrats.. ie HIllary. Republicans never overcome public scorn.

Old NFO said...

Been sick of it for a LONG time... They're all liars, schemers and plotters... I don't care WHICH party it is.

Hey Momma Fqrgo,

I am tired of the political ads, But Obama has made it worse, he has been on constant campaign mode since his election...And I am really burned out. You commented about lack of females on the GOP ticket...Any GOP female with sense will stay away from the ballot, they saw the hate and vitriol that Palin went through...It is worse for any "Minority"or female to say that they are in the GOP, the Media treats them like traitors to the cause. That being said, I do like Condi Rice...she went through hell being in "W"'s administration and since she has returned to private life...the liberals and feminist have hounded that poor women.
