Video: Bristol Makes It to the Finals!

Posted by Dr. Fay on November 17, 2010

Here are those suspense-filled moments on Week 9 DWTS when Bristol and Mark found out that they were going on to the Finals!

Here Bristol and Mark talk to abc15 backstage Monday night after the competition.  They discuss Bristol’s desire to win, Mark’s assessment of her progress, and why people vote for Bristol.  When asked what she promises viewers if she makes it to the Finals, Bristol responded, “more intensity, more personality, more confidence.”

Why Bristol the Pistol Is Still Firing

Posted by Dr. Fay on November 17, 2010

Former DWTS contestant Erin Andrews and Howard Bragman discuss the reasons Bristol is still in the competition on Dancing with the Stars.

Andrews:

“The bottom line is this:  She’s getting the votes.  People are calling in, and they’re voting for her…. Last night after one of her dances – I think it was the first one – I felt like that ballroom was about to explode.  I thought that she got one of the loudest applauses at the end of the night, loudest cheers.  And I feel like in the end everyone is starting to feel bad about this negativity that is surrounding her…. She’s out there, she’s dancing as hard as she can, and people are voting for her.”

Krugman:

“She’s probably the most improved on the show this year.  She is accessible, she is relatable, she is a nice kid. .. She’s really trying …. People who try, the public tends to embrace.”

“Après moi le déluge” Is An Obama Reference. Can Palin Recover the Situation Or Will It Be Too Late

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on November 17, 2010

The brilliant site Tradicion Clasica (translated into English from the original Spanish) considers the expression “Après moi le déluge”, and Its Classical Antecedents in depth with many references to writers of antiquity (as of course befits this most erudite and catholic of sites) including Seneca, Lucretius, Diogenes, Strato of Sardis and numerous others.

For those, sadly, not versed in classical Greek (surely there are not many) there are handy translations into English and for those who prefer more up to date references there is this update “Geraldus Bucoldus translated this ancient Greek epigram into Latin in the Renaissance. In Spanish literature, Diego Hurtado de Mendoza (1503-1575) composed a sonnet which is a re-creation of the epigram”.

In examining the well know phrase, translated into English as (“After me, the deluge”) attributed to the King of France Louis XV (1710-1774): the editor posits (and goes to consider both in some depth with support from classical writers) two possible meanings;

1a) On the one hand, if we understand After me the deluge will come, the saying seems to imply, as an assertive affirmation: “After my reign, the nation will be plunged into chaos and destruction.”

b) The verb could also be understood as a subjunctive concession: After me, let the deluge come (it can come, but it makes no difference to me). In this second case, the speaker asserts that nothing that happens after his disappearance matters to him.

However, there is a third possibility which relates directly to our current,sad and dangerous, political situation and can be said of President Obama. “after me comes the deluge, that is after my election, and due to my inexperience, disconnect with the average person, and what I described as my “healthy ego” the deluge will come during my four years in office not subsequent to them”.


The voters have signalled their concern,or possible panic given the massive size of the defeat inflicted on the he Obama administration the mid-terms, their unhappiness with the economic direction of the country. What has happened after nearly two years, especially in the seemingly intractable employment, housing, deficit and now inflation areas, may just be a start to an even further financial cataclysm-or deluge.

Here is one scenario looking to next year based on the current economic situation;

Marc Lichtenfeld writes: “There’s going to be a massive stock and bond market sell off in the first half of 2011. Not only that, the sell off could cause a worldwide financial disaster, global market crashes and the destruction of wealth that will make the popping of the dotcom and housing bubbles feel like a mild inconvenience.”

“Why?

Because, quite simply, America is playing a dangerous game of “chicken” with its national debt. And the ramifications are extraordinary. I’m going to explain the situation and give you three ways to protect yourself from this mess before it’s too late…

America’s debt ceiling currently stands at $14.3 trillion. This is the level that, by law, the government’s debt is not allowed to exceed. Trouble is, the government’s present debt has swelled to $13.7 trillion.

This means that at the current rate, we’re on course to smash through that $14.3 trillion ceiling around May 2011 (although it might happen a month or two later, depending on what budget cuts are enacted in the next few months and how quickly they’re implemented). So what will the government do about this? Same thing it’s done almost every year since 1962: Raise the debt ceiling so America can pay its bills.”

For this to happen a bill allowing this has to pass through Congress.Will President Obama agree to spending cuts, possibly including his signature health care program? Will a House vote of a senate filibuster block the passage of such a bill ? If this scenario plays out will investors at home and abroad take fright and abandon the U.S. economy leading to a massive crash? And, even if the debt ceiling is raised, how long can the economy carry on endlessly creating trillions of dollars in deficits before hyper inflation and a crash situation occurs ?

If, through gross mismanagement by Obama/Giethner and Bernanke, the economy crashes-the deluge after Obama’s election, before the ‘commonsense” solutions of President Palin has the chance to put the ship of state back on course, the damage last for generations. The only solution in sight is to pray that the collapse doesn’t come before November 2012, and that if it does, that President Palin can draw on the goodwill of the American people to help and support her through the tough challenges of reconstruction.

The Palin Network: Inside Sarah Palin’s Inner Circle

Posted by Denise Spencer on November 17, 2010

Today I ran across a decent article about Sarah Palin in the NY Times Magazine no less! You can read the entire article here.

The article consists of interviews with Sarah Palin and her few trusted aides and advisors. For once I can say that I am pleasantly surprised with the way the article was written. Yes, there are places where some bias comes through but overall Robert Draper was fair.

The article starts off with Sarah on the night of Nov. 3 as she waits for the election results to roll in.

On the night of the midterm elections earlier this month, Sarah Palin stayed up until 3 in the morning. From her hotel bedroom in Manhattan, she and her husband, Todd, followed the returns while she wrote e-mails on her iPad — congratulating winners, consoling losers — while reading others from people who wanted her to know that they had cast their vote for her daughter Bristol on “Dancing With the Stars” the evening before. Like much of her recent life, Palin’s day had been replete with reminders of the clout she had rapidly acquired. She had spent most of her time ensconced at the Fox television studios, though she managed to squeeze in a jog in Central Park — which she promptly chronicled on Twitter: “Beautiful!”

Mr. Draper fairly details the weight of a Sarah Palin endorsement and the effects that she had on the mid-term election. When asked about her future and if it includes a run for the Oval Office, this is what Sarah had to say:

“I am,” Sarah Palin told me the next day when I asked her if she was already weighing a run for president. “I’m engaged in the internal deliberations candidly, and having that discussion with my family, because my family is the most important consideration here.” Palin went on to say that there weren’t meaningful differences in policy among the field of G.O.P. hopefuls “but that in fact there’s more to the presidency than that” and that her decision would involve evaluating whether she could bring unique qualities to the table.

In true Sarah style, she is keeping it all in perspective – family, faith, and flag. If it is right for her family and she feels that it is best for our country, she is willing to take that leap of faith and run. She definitely has support in no matter what she decides. Have you seen her Facebook page recently? She now has over 2.4 million fans, check it out.

The article also addresses the true character of Sarah during her Going Rogue book tour:

A few months later, while touring to promote her book, “Going Rogue,” Palin’s bus pulled into Roanoke, Va., one Sunday in November, the night before an appearance at a bookstore. The author was astonished to see more than 500 people encamped outside the store, many of them in sleeping bags. “Oh, my God, it’s so cold!” Palin exclaimed as she bounded out of the bus to greet her ecstatic fans. “I can’t believe you’re waiting for me!”

But they had waited, and now she had arrived.

I was in Roanoke for the book signing referenced by Mr. Draper. You can read about my experience here. Surprise! (picture courtesy of Amy Sorrell) Here is Sarah and trig when she stopped to thank all of us who braved the cold to camp out to see her.

While Mr. Draper steers clear of stating if Sarah Palin is qualified or not to be president he does write:

Palin has taken steps to close the substance gap. As Davis put it to me, “She works very hard to get things right, because she understands the margin for error — and because it’s the right thing to do.” In Hong Kong 14 months ago, Palin delivered a dense world-affairs speech that she co-drafted with Randy Scheunemann and Rebecca Mansour. This past June in Norfolk, Va., Palin ripped Obama’s “enemy-centric” foreign policy in a spicy but detailed address. (In that speech and elsewhere, she has cited the wisdom of Joe Lieberman — though not on the matter of human-induced climate change, a concept she derides as a “snow job” and this “global warming Goregate stuff.” Lieberman told me, “Well of course I disagree with her and have been disappointed by it.” Lieberman also said: “My impression is that she and Todd are the kind of people I’d like to have as my next-door neighbors. ..”

You can read about Sarah Palin’s Norfolk Virginia speech here.

After reading this article, I believe you will take away a new understanding of Sarah Palin and the world she lives in. Even though questions still remain about whether she will run for president, there is no question that she has the grassroots support to pull it all off. Would I work for her campaign??? You betcha!
