While I support the petition I don't necessarily support the last phrase of the petition.

But I'll bend my values to shut her the F#%k up!

"Freedom of speech" only applies to those questioning a liberal slant. Eternal damnation awaits those who dare exercise the same right against the conservative/tea bagger/creationist.

I'd be happy to prove it during the next tea bagger gathering but I really don't feel like getting my butt kicked/glasses broke to prove a point.

Did I see anything there that proved that the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee is going to tell all truth? I don't remember that promise so guess I won't sign that one.

It seems to me that I remember a whole string of Democrat promises a couple of years ago that bought lots of votes and then became just what they were, campaign promises, which are the ones one just forgets after gathering tht votes. Can I trust something like that?

The whole 'death panels' thing was overblown in my opinion. The absolute constriction and restriction of funds by the government is indeed a de facto 'death panel.' Anyone who has had an elderly loved one who has required a hospital stay will tell you that hospital stays are often cut short because of Medicare's reluctance to continue paying beyond a certain amount. Are there true death panels? No. Are there restrictions on medical care due to the control of the purse strings? Absolutely. Medicare will not pay infinite amounts of money to keep someone alive. This point is completely lost on those Liberals who have declared war on Palin.

Sarah Palin could have used a better choice of words, but she's not altogether wrong in her assertion.

Getting Pain to tell the truth would be like proving the existence of 'Big Foot'. But then again, she can probably see it from her porch.

And what's a few campaign promises, when you can just violate an Oath?! Now there's some high standards...

Nobody will ever shut her up.
She has values and opinions that many happen to agree with.
As far as the death panels go, that remains to be seen.
Of course there is one thing for sure, they will be introduced under a different name.
Poor old Joe is in unbelievable pain. Will we hear, "We are so sorry Joe but the pain medication is not covered under your plan.
We feel so bad and would like to help you with this nice shot that will end all of your problems."
Wonder what NICE name for that "bill" will be?
Wonder how it will be worded?
Will we need to hire a lawyer to tell us what is in it?
Or do we just find out when it happens to us.

Well, here they are good buddy!

PolitiFact | Barack Obama's file

Now, can you show anything close to what the above listed air heads have promised, distorted or obstructed? I can, with minimal effort, but copying and pasting would require considerable effort. To make my job easier, I'll just tell you to wonder about my reference and factcheck.org. I'd list Faux also but they don't check their assertions, errrrr "facts" . . . Do they?

But if she stops talking, she'll disappear. You didn't think she was running around saying things for the hell of it, did you? It's the only way she can keep extending her 15 minutes of fame.
