PUMA + Tea Party + Libertarians + Moderate Democrats =


Wasn’t that fun ?

Since November 2008, I’ve been a part of all the post title because there’s no room for me anymore in the Obama Party (raaacissst terrorist sympathizer!) or a welcome into the Huckabee/Romney Party (home of the Creation Museum), so I’ve become an independent freethinking spirit touching base with everyone else. What a year!

I’m not a Democrat. I’m not a Republican. I’m an American.

Libertarians, Independents, Conservatives AND Dems, Oh My!

…..and PUMAs !

A few more thoughts from the 9-12 DC Rally….and I wasn’t the only PUMA representing! Hey, didn’t we start this? So, now that Old Glory, the Gadsdens and Culpeppers have been put away til the next big “can you hear us now” rally, I finally realized that I was a part of a much bigger political movement afterall……Swing Voters! Despite what the O’slobber media brushed us with, it was perhaps the most important political event I’ve attended in my life. It took a few days to sink in, but the numbers who showed up aren’t important, it was WHY they showed up.

From Reason.tv

Are the Tea Party protesters a small group of radical freakazoids or a large crew of taxpaying regular joes who are fed up with government spending, Democrats and Republicans, and business as usual?

Reason.tv fanned out through the crowd and the backstage of the September 12 Taxpayer March on Washington, the controversial anti-government protest that drew somewhere between 75,000 and 1 million people, according to press reports…..

I also found one of the most delightful trip reports from professional stand-up comedienne Traci Skene at Road Atlas Shrugged, lol, one of the Bus People! Enjoy the ride:

….I gave this is my long-winded way of pointing out to the New York Times that I paid my own way to the rally.

We were dropped of in DC’s Chinatown at 10:50 AM (or should I say we were ordered off the bus) so we had to walk 15 blocks to the rally. For a while, we feared we were the only ones who had showed up. Then we turned the corner…..

Complete awe…..one “kick-ass 4th of July Party”……

We stood there in complete awe… speechless for perhaps the first time in our lives, surrounded by folks who were laughing, singing and chanting, “USA! USA!” It seemed less like a political rally and more like a stroll through the Olympic Village.

…. “The happiest, most fun-loving “angry mob” i’ve ever been part of.”

Indeed, a “life altering moment”…and rising 🙂

The 9/12 rally was a life altering moment for many of the Libertarians, Independents and Conservatives who showed up. After years of being vilified by the press and ostracized by liberal friends, family and co-workers we now understand that there is strength in numbers. We’re not going away.

As I feel today, I will never, EVER, blindly follow another politician or bloviating pundit who tells me how to think and feel and like and hate! Dissent is STILL patriotic and one helluva party!

One more thing, the media may have pounced on the dozen or so “fringe” signs to “report” on to prove we’re “nutjobs”, but they seemed to have failed covering the “counter” protest by our Dem friends at Organizing Obots for America. Thank goodness for real citizen journalists:

Sophia Elena reporting from Washington D.C. at the March on Washington on September 13, 2009, an event promoted on Organizing for America’s website. A small group gathered at Upper Senate Park, and marched around the fountain. Time lapse footage of protesters marching around the fountain and footage from the wall of the landscaping illustrate the gathering of people who attended the event.

Til next time….party on!

Time to Sh*t or git’off the pot PUMAs ? For Sarah…

First, the obligatory blogho Broadway analogy to U.S. political bloodsport…

How proud we must be to not see this coming. Even our favorite righties at Hot Air are pissing on Sarah’s grave. Really Allah, an Andrea Mitchell video?

What I thought would be a quick Red Skelton warm and fuzzy patriot post and a quiet weekend, just ruffled my feathers, and my verklemptness.

“We are not retreating, we are advancing in another direction” ~ Sarah Palin quoting General MacArthur.

PUMAs ? Where do you stand?

Palin Democrat – The VIDEO about Sarah and Disenfranchised Democrats

LauraVW writes:

Why disenfranchised Democrats are moving to Sarah Palin for President in 2012: DNC elitism (when equality is supposedly the mission); fiscal irresponsibility; postering instead of defending Israel; embracing socialist doctrine (hey, we’re Americans); weakening American defense; DNC abandonment of working-class Americans (was our core constituency). Song is “True Green” by Annie Rapid.

Springtime: Political Animal Edition

Previously, I introduced the greatest American Symbol’s Family to welcome the renewal season for our senses and hope, Spring. With a H/T to Greta for giving me the idea to introduce the rest of our political families.

Really cute furbaby alert! Gather the children and grandparents!

>>>>Welcome Spring to the Democrats, my annoyingly overprotective, and dysfunctional family. We love to argue, but we mean well.

1 1/2 hour old donkey, Peggy, shown with mother Rachel and father Buddy.

>>>>Welcome Spring to the Republicans. Like Mama elephant, I’m married to one. He’s never home because he’s either working or on the battlefield. We’re a strong family, don’t mess with us.

On Monday, March 30, 2009 Phoebe, an Asian elephant at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, http://www.columbuszoo.org , led her new baby into the indoor pachyderm viewing area. The three-day-old calf, which will be named at a later date, explored his new home but was cautious not to stray too far from his mother.

>>>>Welcome Spring to the 70% in the real life middle-crat-cans. Meerkats! What better way to represent “sitting up and digging in”. Sometimes undecided, but always faithful.

Simon King spends a lot of time allowing the meerkat family to get used to his presence, and his efforts pay off as he witnesses a baby meerkat’s first ever sight of life beyond the burrow. See these cute baby animals on their first adventure in the wild African plains, from the BBC.

>>>>The best for last, Welcome Spring the puma family, for the rest of us. Watch out, she’ll grab your neck, though nourishing through those days you’re blind’sided. And ya’ll just never know when she’s ready to.

Females reach sexual maturity between one-and-a-half and three years of age. They typically average one litter every two to three years throughout their reproductive life; the period can be as short as one year. Females are in estrus for approximately 8 days of a 23-day cycle; the gestation period is approximately 91 days. Females are sometimes reported as monogamous, but this is uncertain and polygyny may be more common. Copulation is brief but frequent.

Now, meet a puma, Luna, in training 🙂 What a fighter!

Here’s hoping your Hope Springs Eternal !

“Remember the PUMA movement?”

Food for thought from Hot Air….

Remember the PUMA movement (Party Unity My A$$)? Hillary Clinton dead-enders attempted to organize in the tail end of the Democratic primaries, in a futile effort to unseat Barack Obama from the nomination. Now filmmaker Brad Mays has produced a documentary look at the PUMA movement called The Audacity of Democracy, and my friend Tommy Christopher at AOL’s Political Machine tips me off to the release and the trailer … which is NSFW due to some foul language:

Good question? I ask this of myself sometimes, where’s PUMA?

Though Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey asked this question today too.

Tommy has been a PUMA skeptic from the word go, and I’d presume that the film takes a similar approach to the movement from this trailer. In the end, of course, the skepticism was justified. It arguably put pressure on Obama to include Hillary in his campaign, but failed to put her on the ticket in either slot. In the end, the massive defections to John McCain threatened by the PUMAs never appeared, and Obama won in a rout.
The PUMA phenomenon deserves a look, and I’m interested to see whether Mays succeeds in capturing both sides of the equation well enough to make it worthwhile.
