The Palins vs Kathy Griffin

January 6, 2011

An online article two days ago, stated that Kathy Griffin intended on continuing her dogging of the Palin family.  We all know that she does this to keep her name in the headlines.  It’s free publicity.  But at what cost to the Palin family? 

I believe any really good lawyer could take care of this Kathy Griffin situation for the Palins.  I find Kathy Griffin’s remarks disgusting to say the least and let me be clear here, I find Sarah Palin a nice down to earth woman with whom middle America identifies with, but because of her Political agenda, her children for some reason (where is their dad?) have had no guidance at home.  Yes, she may have a political agenda, but she is no one I would vote for, at least at this time and only because I don’t think she is experienced enough to handle the job of President, though she has more Political experience than Obama had.  But there are others that would vote for her and thus, the Kathy Griffin attacks.

That being said, I don’t think Kathy Griffin is qualified to be a comedian or use that title as an excuse to justify her vicious Palin remarks.  I really do not believe that making fun of, in a very nasty way, mind you, another person comes anywhere close to being funny.

It seems that Griffin has decided she will leave Sarah Palin alone for a while, including passing over Bristol and is going to move on to a younger daughter in the Palin family who is only 16 years old, her name is Willow.  I understand that Willow has made some comments on Facebook in response to derogatory remarks made by a student in Alaska, about her mother.  

I have read what the remarks are supposed to be and do find them inappropriate to say the least.  It also appears that Sarah’s children have not been supervised enough or been given guidance on how to respond publicly to things they hear or see about themselves or a family member,  that are basically uncalled for remarks by someone who thinks its fun to take cheap shots at others and do it on the internet, or in public so as to create a media frenzy and subsequently hurt the feelings of one of the Palin family members. 

I really think that the people who watch Griffin do it to see just how far she will go before someone, anyone, a good lawyer perhaps files a complaint against her for harassment, or defamation of character

Now a 16 year old could probably have a lawyer represent her.  You see, she’s not famous in her own right; she’s not in the limelight by her own decision.  She is not a famous person, out on the road making speeches, nor is she a singer or movie star.  She’s an underage daughter of a prominent person.  She should have the right to sue Kathy Griffin for harassment, or defamation of character and win.  The key word here is “under age” and basically a “no one”.

But, the retaliatory remarks Willow makes on the internet or in public do not help her cause.  She is feeding right into the hands of those who want to make her a public topic and ultimately do her harm by publicly insulting her.  If her mother is not at  home then where is her father?   One would think she would have discussed this particular incident with one of her parents before writing about it on the internet.

Just how mean and vindictive does someone like Griffin need to be before someone shuts her up legally?  Even our service men, which fight and die for the rest of us Americans and our freedom of speech, cannot stand her.  So, why is it that the rest of us feel she has the right to be malicious?  How would you like her going after your daughter, sister or mother, I don’t think anyone would like it.  Could it be this is why no one will stand up to her for fear she may come after them next?  Let’s face it, many people have skeletons in their closet and don’t want them yelled out all over t he nightly news.

Certainly many in Middle America identify with Sarah Palin and would vote for her to be President, but identifying with someone who has the same personal and family problems as you do, is not a qualification to be President, especially when those problems are detrimental to the mental and physical well-being of ones children.   When I was growing up it was almost a sin to get pregnant when still a child and in school and it wasn’t much better for a young woman to get pregnant if she wasn’t married.   It was embarrassing for the girl when she had to finally tell her parents.    It was humiliating to the parents when the news got out among family and friends and made them look like they were doing a poor job of raising their children.  It was worse if it hit the papers and went National or International.  

Today, it seems it is more acceptable, but make no mistake it is hard for the girl/young woman when it is kept in the news by those whose intentions are to only humiliate and inflict mental anguish.  It is this reason why I think Kathy Griffin should have some kind of legal action brought against her to stop her mean insults directed at the Palin children. 

I know, the Palins should hire an attorney but they have not, as far as I know.  So, maybe, just maybe,  there is still a Children’s Advocate out there, a Lawyer with some sense of decency who will come forward and offer his legal services to the Palin children.  I mean at the very least there is a huge upside for a Lawyer to do so, he will get headlines, and a reputation for protecting those who can not protect themselves from the evil doers out there, and it would all be free advertising for him.  What better way  to boost ones’ career?  It would be a win/win situation for all concerned (except Griffin).

I  hate to say this, but I don’t think Sarah Palin and her husband are doing a very good job of protecting their children from persecution by those who have no conscience or morals.

Who would or could advise these girls, if Sarah made it to the White House?  Sadly,  it is evident that they were never prepared properly on how to act publicly and more importantly,  how to show respect not only for themselves, but for their mother who is a public person looking at living in the White House. 

Certainly Americans of all social classes can identify with the Palin family.  Please don’t take my remarks the wrong way.  Sarah Palin’s children have had their lives turned upside down by a media that has no integrity.  The Palin children have been thrown into the lions den, and someone forgot to tell them how to defend themselves in a appropriate  manner.   Becasuse Middle America identifies with the Palins, is not a reason to put Sarah in the White House.   We want the highest of moral standards to be a part of the everyday life of our President and his family.  

 The President and his family  are supposed to set an example for the rest of us.  We as Americans want a President who has control not only of his/her life but also, sets boundries for his/her children.  We want to be proud of the person we elect to the highest office in the land and want him/her to deserve the respect that someone in his/her position should be given by not only Americans, but the world.  Sadly, Sarah Palin cannot change the family issues that have already been blown out of proportion by the leftist media,  but she can try to protect her children a little more, and give them some guidance on how and what they should do or say when confronted by outsiders who try to hurt them just because of their mother’s public ambitions.  

Now, with all that being said, is there a “Lawyer in the House” who has the guts to come forward and give some legal advice to the Palin children and better yet, represent them?     ss

What is the Biggest Problem facing Obama?

October 1, 2010

I understand in a town hall speech President Obama said something about the fact that the biggest problem He and the Dems face is the group, Americans for Prosperity. 

What I find really strange is that Obama would have the nerve to accuse any American of being this nations biggest problem, when it is very clear that the only problem America has is a President WHO:  

  1. Refuses to prove he was born here.
  2. Refused to wear the American flag pin when he was running for office.
  3. Sat in a church for over 20 years, claiming he had no clue that Rev. Wright was a Radical and basically hated America.
  4. Did not want his middle name used while campaigning “Hussien”.
  5. Apologized to the world because “HE DECIDED” that America has been arrogant to foreign countries.
  6. Twisted the arms and bullied Dems to vote for a Health Care Bill the majority of Americans did not want.
  7. Actually married a woman who was not ever proud of her country (until her husband happened to be elected President, that is).
  8. Called a Boston Cop, doing his job, Stupid (when he admittedly said, “ I wasn’t there so I don’t know what happened, but”.)  You know the rest.
  9. Hired Czars to oversee the Cabinet, and pay them our tax dollars when the majority of them are not qualified, and are Socialists, Marxists, and Radicals, and basically, not needed.
  10. Shut down drilling in the Gulf, and put more Americans out of work
  11. (This one is my opinion) claims that all the oil from the BP spill is out of the Gulf, and the fish are okay to eat.  Yet scientist say the Crude is on the bottom (where fish feed).   Well, I’m not a scientist, and I really feel sorry for the Fisherman, but I just can’t bring my self to buy fish, swimming in and eating their food mixed in and with crude oil.  Maybe we can sell them to China.
  12. Sued a Governor because she was trying to protect the citizens in her state.
  13. Continuously promotes racism.
  14. Has an agenda “I’m going to fundamentally change the foundation of America”, that he called “Change”, which he used to mislead the Americans.  Obama’s definition of “Change” in my mind is “Destroy”.

 I could go on, but hopefully more Americans will realize that this guy was never raised as an American, his most informative years were spent in Indonesia, where the largest segment of the population is Muslim. 

Therefore, he was never taught American values and ideals.  He was never taught to have pride in his country (if it actually is America.)  This upbringing in a Muslim country would certainly explain his constant need for acceptance from the Middle Eastern people. 

This fact should be apparent to all, yet the media has chosen not to mention this point   I never hear anyone discussing this fact, but I truly believe his allegiance is to the Muslim world and think his actions have proven that.  Growing up in a foreign country at such an informative age certainly does explain his condescending attitude towards the American people.

There is no way I will ever believe that he has America’s best interest at heart.  I do not believe that the President is a Patriot.  ss

Glenn Beck vs American Idol

April 22, 2010

It’s no secret to anyone who reads my posts, that I watch the Glenn Beck show every afternoon.   I also watch  O’Rielly,  Hannity,  Megan and Shepard on Fox.  I do check out the news on the other Networks  and watch Anderson Cooper also.   Glenn Beck has mentioned a few times about the number of viewers he has had, on any given day.  Many times it has been close to 3 Million, which is high for any talk show on Cable. 

I like Glenn’s show because he always backs up what he is saying by showing clips of the person he is talking about saying or doing something he said they did.  He always proves his point, unlike the other Networks who basically promote the opinions of their host.  That’s fine if I want their opinion, but I feel I’m more than capable of coming up with my own, based on fact.

Now, last week, I was watching American Idol and of course the Host Ryan Seacrest   mentioned or shall I say yelled out to the audience that something like 34 Million people voted after the previous show, for their favorite singer.  I do have to say that that’s a lot of people watching a program that basically gives a singing contract away to the winner.  I don’t know what the age is of the majority of the viewers, but I would think many or even most may be teens too young to vote in Presidential elections. 

Though I’m sure that there are quite a few, of those 34 Million viewers, old enough to vote in the National elections.  So, why are these same viewers,  not at all interested in what is going on in America and the fact that they are the ones who will eventually have to deal with the results of all these new Socialist laws being passed by Congress?   Do they not know that their personal Freedom and Rights are being taken from them by a group of appointed (Socialist Czars), elected officials (Congress and the President) and other Elitists who are determined to take total control of America, away from the people? 

So, this got me thinking, 3 Million people watch Glenn Beck, the Political talk show host who is trying to let Americans know what is really going on in Washington DC, and inform them on how the United States Congress is basically destroying our country by eliminating much of our Freedom.  Glenn has spent a little over a year trying to teach the American public about the US Constitution and what it means and warn us about who is trying to destroy America’s way of life.  Though only 3 Million people are watching, give or take a few, that number has put him in the number one position a number of times for a Political Cable talk/news show.  But why doesn’t he have more viewers than that?

Could it be that Fox News hasn’t realized yet, that the Glenn Beck show should be on during prime time?  Right now, in the Eastern part of the US, his show is on at 5PM.  The people who have jobs are either still at work or just leaving to go home for the night and by the time they get home, maybe after running to the grocery store on the way, he’s off the air.  It seems to me, without knocking any of the other Fox hosts out of their time slots, they should move the Glenn Beck show to at least 7PM.  By then people are done eating and have time to watch him.   The 7PM time slot is closer to Prime time and he should be able to at least double the number of viewers for his show.  So, Fox, how about it, let’s move Glenn to a later time slot and see if I’m right?

An article I read today in the New York Times, gave  the ratings for some TV shows,  that made me do some thinking.   Well, let’s look at Nielsen’s TV estimate ratings for last Monday nights; reality show “Dancing With the Stars”, according to Nielsen’s estimates, had 20.8 Million viewers, the premiere of a new show called “Romantically Challenged” had 11.6 Million viewers, on CBS that night a new episode of “CSI: Miami” had 11.7 Million viewers, and “Castle” on ABC, and one of my favorite shows, had 10.5 Million viewers.  Fox came in third for the night with “House” having 10.6 Million viewers and “24” also, one of my favorite shows, with 8.9 Million viewers.  

It appears that Americans are more interested in reality TV, like “Dancing With the Stars” and/or “American Idol”, “Survivor”, and the live shows like “What Not to Wear” (should include the clothes coming in from China, with the European look for women), then there’s “Hoarders” and the Cooking shows, etc., etc., etc., than in the actual survival of Freedom in their country. 

Yet, only 3 Million or less are watching one of the more  important Reality shows in the country which is the Glenn Beck Show.  Okay, I know it probably wouldn’t be considered a Reality show, but since the White House, and most of the other Networks (mostly liberal, left) are contributing to the bashing of Fox News and the Glenn Beck show, on a daily basis and trying to get Becks  show off the air, in every way possible, I will put it in the Reality category.  

Let’s see here:  Glenn Beck= 3,000,000 viewers,  American Idol= 34,000,000 viewers.  

So, what’s wrong with the over-all picture here?  It’s a little scary when more Americans are interested in who the next singing sensation will be, or what celebrity is the best dancer, instead of what the next American leader is going to be; an elected President of the Free world, or maybe a Communist Dictator or how about a Socialist Leader?  

For the last maybe 15 or 20 years I’ve heard on numerous occasions how the powers that be have been dumbing down America.  Well, all I can say is, “They have succeeded”.  Duh!    ss
