REGROUPING: The Morning After the Day Before (A Joint Post with kenosha Marge & American Lassie (GG Will Be Posting Separately) (UPDATED 2X)

~~By InsightAnalytical-GRL

As I  write this it’s 6 pm Mountain Time.  I was out this afternoon for an appointment at the heart doctor with my mother. Miraculously, we didn’t have to wait 6 hours; we were out in about 2!  Wouldn’t you know it, I got  home and put on RETRO and “The Manchurian Candidate” was just ending.  Rudy Giuliani had left a very late phone message on my answering machine.  I had gotten a call in the early afternoon from John McCain himself and yesterday I had received two call from the McCain campaign and one from the NM GOP. The Obamacrats had left a doorknob hanger on my gate while we were gone. That Black Panthers business in Philly has ticked me off.

I noticed when I took my dogs out at 5:30 for their walk that sometime during the day, someone ate the dog food I had left by the wall.  We don’t have many dogwalkers around here, so I’m hoping it’s the little stray. Perhaps we’re going to get another “November miracle” again this year!  (See yesterday’s post, Today, A Stress-Free Post! What Could Be Better Than a TRUE Story About a November MIRACLE DOG!! (With Pics) .

Now, as I write this, I don’t know a thing about the election. I’ve been avoiding all contact all day, except for brief interludes of Rush and Sean. My new friends?  Amazing, isn’t it??

And frankly, I may not know until tomorrow. I’m exhausted. I need to go to bed!  The stress has really gotten to me! I’ve been eating TUMS like candy and I NEVER need to take TUMS!

That being said, I have already composed my thoughts on the future.  It’s going to be a time of regrouping. However, there are certain truisms that apply, no matter what the outcome. They are:

1) No matter who wins, we all have to go into “hawk mode,” as in WATCHING LIKE A HAWK.

2) Not being a Republican, that means watching McCain like a hawk on “our issues.”

3) Not being an Obama supporter, that means the same thing.  He doesn’t get off the hook because of the “D” after his name.  We’ve been on him this long, we can’t let him get off easy if he takes control.

4) Not being a Democrat anymore…well, I want to be able to support SOME party! Which means we have to not only WATCH the Democratic officeholders and Party, we have to start making noise to try to get them back to being a party we all can recognize. That means keeping up a strong PUMA movement!  I heard callers on the Rush and Sean shows that sounded like PUMAs to me…and it was good to hear them!

5) And finally, the subject of Hillary Clinton. Lady Lynn Rothschild was on Greta last night (Monday) and she was quite blunt about Hillary Clinton. Friend or no, she said Hillary should be thinking about how she is going to explain why she decided to work so hard for Obama. Those are not my words, those are Rothschild’s.  She even brought up how Ted Kennedy didn’t support Carter  in 1980 on principle. (Maybe it wasn’t just principle, but that’s not the issue now.)  Rothschild clearly felt that Kennedy’s refusal showed a lot more guts, for whatever reason he did it, than what Hillary Clinton displayed.  I’m on the same page with Lynn Rothschild on this one.

Now I can’t speak at the moment for anyone else who blogs here. However, kenosha Marge sent me her thoughts on both possible outcomes of the election.  I’m just going to post both of her little essays regardless of whether I actually find out who won tonight.  She writes so well and I just enjoy reading her!!

Grail Guardian and American Lassie may have something cooking and if they send along their thoughts, they will be posted.  But for now, this “PUMA Dame” is going to the kitchen to make dinner and then I may sit through the Western on TMC.  I never watch Westerns, but I’m in the mood for a simple morality play tonight without any modern-day contraptions making noise.  I’m into horses, dust, and ladies in fancy hats tonight. Ironically, the movie is called “Decisoin at Sundown.”   I guess I can’t TOTALLY escape what’s going on even while watching a 1957 movie!

Now, onto kenosha Marge…

The Morning After the Day Before

~~By kenosha Marge

McCain/Palin wins:

I knew that no matter how the election ended I would still be angry. I knew I would be angry because I don’t like being lied to, bullied or treated in a condescending manner.

I watched this election cycle in dismay. I ended up voting Republican for the first time in my life. I believe with all my heart that the Democratic Party is corrupt and they will never have my loyalty or my support again . I will vote for and support certain Democratic candidates but not the Democratic Party. Ever!

There is one villain that has emerged that should be hated by all people that care about democracy. That villain is the media.

If you think a biased media is fine as long as they are biased in favor of your beliefs, your candidate and your party, congratulations you are a partisan and not a patriot.

If you think misogyny is wrong when it is used against a liberal woman but fine when it is used against a conservative woman, congratulations you’re a partisan not a feminist. Misogyny is wrong. Period.

If you believe that a biased, misogynistic media is what we should have in this country, congratulations you are a part of the problem that women who fight for equality must face. You are not liberal and you are not a feminist. You are one of those Fauxgressives or one of those Liberal Women that believe only liberal women can be called feminists.

I find satisfaction in knowing that in spite of the shenanigans from the Democratic Party and the corrupt bias of the media that John McCain will be our next president. I find satisfaction in that because I respect John McCain and like and respect Sarah Palin. I believe him to be a man of honor who will do the best he can for the country he loves and I believe that she will be a fresh breeze in Washington D.C.

I also believe that the media will continue to savage her. But since they have no longer have any credibility the only people who will pay any attention to them will be women-hating men and the self-hating women who all ready hate her. No surprise in any of that.

I believe that John McCain loves his country and will be an honorable president. I believe that Sarah Palin’s incredible energy will be put to good use. I wish them luck and I wish them well.

For 8 long years I have often said, “don’t blame me, I didn’t vote for that clown. Now I have at least 4 years to look forward to saying the same.

I can also look forward once again to not believing one word that comes out of the President’s mouth. I can look forward to changing channels the minute the President or the Vice-President appear. I will not listen to nor believe the State of the Union speeches.

I will not wish him/them well. I don’t like cheats and crooks. I don’t support cheats and crooks. I don’t want my country represented by cheats and crooks.

I will how ever look forward to saying, “I told you so”, every time some Obamacrat voices disappointment. I did tell them so, over and over again. That will be about the only satisfaction I will get out of seeing Obama in the White House. Otherwise just one more presidential term where some putz in the Oval Office doesn’t speak for me and doesn’t represent me. You would think I would be used to it by now. You would think we all would be used to it by now.

UPDATE

Well, nothing is going to change for me…it’s like the continuation of Bush…I won’t listen to one word coming out of the FRAUD’s mouth in the future.  But we will open OURS…

~~

UPDATE 2

~~By American Lassie who rose off her sick-bed to email me this before the election was called….

Right now I’m brain dead.  I agree about “hawks”. No matter who gets elected tonight they need to be kept under close scrutiny.  If it’s Obama we will be worried about our liberty, our privacy and our safety.  The Farrakhan troops showing up at polling places in Philly scares me to death.  If they are this brazen now God help us if he wins.  I don’t agree with all of John McCain’s policies but he is our only salvation right now.  I fear for our country on so many levels tonight.  I feel the world is watching our election to see if we are going to be fair game for our enemies to move in while so many people are divided.  Call me “Cassandra” but I am frightened.  I don’t know what else to say at this point.  One of the main things we need to work on as soon as possible is to solidify our base.  If we can’t clean up the Democratic Party I don’t want any part of it.  Third parties don’t seem to be too viable.  I wonder how many people feel the way I do?  Like I’m lost in space without a tether.  This transition period is going to be difficult whether it is McCain or Obama.   There is all that bail-out money out there, and it doesn’t seem to be going where it should.  There is also the indecision as to whether to bail out the auto industry, and Pelosi wants another large booster, refund, or whatever she calls it.  We are already so in debt to China and the deficit just keeps growing.  This is one thing you could mention – our huge deficit and our foreign debt.  And while I think we are expected, as human beings, to be compassionate towards those less fortunate, Mr. “Spread The Wealth” is going to bankrupt us all with his tax policies.  I am just an average American getting by like so many others who find that there is less and less disposable income in my pocket each month that I wonder if there is any light at the end of this tunnel. The energy costs have risen so that by the time you heat your home and pay your taxes the average family is lucky to have anything left over to put food on the table.  And he wants to bankrupt the coal companies which would make our energy costs that much higher.  Forgive me for running on this way.  I think my medication has taken over what little brain I had left.  After the results are in tonight and we know which way we are going maybe I will be a little less anxious.  That is, if it is settled tonight.  If it is a close tally we are in for a fight. (Or a takeover).

***

We may slow down on our posting over the next couple of days as the dust settles and we catch our wind.  As of now, we have no plans to retire gracefully.

  1. Actually a lot will change – it will be Bush on acid.
    In the end, the way W damaged the GOP brand, W will do it way bigger. And the downward spiral will continue.
    Unless we PUMAs grow into an alternative.

  2. Well said, kenosha Marge. You put words to what I feel, think, and believe.

  3. I’m mourning but you know what McCain is an honorable man, he could have attacked O far fiercer than he had done. And it was close (popular vote wise). Considering all the media hype and the money he spent he should have been far ahead. We need to regroup and think what to do next since he’ll be unchallenged as an emperor.

  4. Absolutely, everyone. We did a lot more than they thought we could. One of the important things that occurred from these sites is that they gave people a place to get their minds around what they knew was true, but were getting no verification of in the outside world.

    There will be legislation to watch, and people to hold accountable. Yes, he has pulled a Shaka Zula on Hillary. Never leave your enemy alive, He didn’t want her to be able to come back and challenge him later, and he has managed to tarnish her enough to do that.

    I don’t beleive that socialism will be a good fit for America. The millions who voted for him and told themselves that he wasn’t really leftist will wake up in the next few months. It may be too late for this battle, but there will definately be more to come. Rest and stay attached. We will all be needed.

  5. Edge…I meant things won’t change in the way I deal with Obama…I added a bit…”But we will open OURS…..”

    “Well, nothing is going to change for me…it’s like the continuation of Bush…I won’t listen to one word coming out of the FRAUD’s mouth in the future. But we will open OURS…”

    And you meant Obama will do it way bigge, I imagine…

  6. “I will not wish him/them well. I don’t like cheats and crooks. I don’t support cheats and crooks. I don’t want my country represented by cheats and crooks.”

    Here! Here Kenosha Marge! I’m disgusted and numb all at the same time. Things will get interesting really quickly. I suspect the Obama supporters will be whining in disbelief at his actions before they know it.

  7. In the meantime we will have the media hyperventilating about the “historic” election and how wonderful it all is. The victory dances and gleeful nastiness will continue on steroids.

    The best thing you can do is turn off those a$$hats that shoved this piece of crap down our throats. Media has elected another President. And he’s just as bad as the one they elected the last time.

    He may be “The” President, but just like Bush, he will NEVER be “My” President. All flags should fly at half mast today.

    Oh and good for Florida and Michigan for “punishing” the Democratic Party for treating them so disgracefully. I doubt even Barky expected them to roll over and kiss his a$$ after the way they were treated.

  9. Warrior Princess said, “One of the important things that occurred from these sites is that they gave people a place to get their minds around what they knew was true, but were getting no verification of in the outside world.”

    I’m entirely behind the idea of dissenting voices and multiple points of view. I like to engage with them, talk about things with them, use them to test my own ideas and beliefs, and I’ve been enjoying the conversations I’ve been participating in here.

    I will say this, though, to WP: the major way you distinguish something that’s ‘true’ from something that’s ‘not true’ or ‘not proven’ is that it is verified in the outside world.

    I thought Senator McCain struck the right note in his speech last night; I admired him for it. He was much more the McCain from 2000 who would probably have been a great president for the last eight years. I hope that both he and President-elect Obama can deliver on the commitments they made to the country last night.

  10. Grl, please remove Captain Kickstand from any of my threads. I am not interested in anything he has to say or in interacting with him in any way.

  11. I’ve set up moderation now so that once approved, people can post. Anything offensive from now on will not be tolerated. Discussion is one thing, trolling is another! And ignore the stuff that is polite but irritating. I don’t want to become a “police site” just yet….Let’s hope it works!!!

  12. I have great difficulty being happy or celebrating anything this morning – other than this era of tension, bickering, divisiveness and rancor is over.
    I believe another is just beginning.

    The Obama campaign was run from the very beginning with hate filled slurs, suggestions, threats about and toward anyone who didn’t support his Oneness. (yep, I’m mad). When I heard an interview with John Lewis this morning, I thought about how he first supported HRC before he was threatened by the obama folks and then switched his allegiance to BHO.
    I thought about the lies that were told and the position changes that reflected a concerted effort to undo the Constitution and civil rights. I thought about the personal friendships and associations that were denied and/or glossed over to win votes and deny accountability. I also thought about the lack of transparency in this “transformative” candidate. I thought of the fraudulent fundraising and the denial of culpability of any wrongdoing in this arena. I thought of these and more.

    Then I heard the report filed from Chicago and the kool-aid laced ego-fest from Grant Park last night. A man said, “This is a FIRST. A man from the black community is president. I have lived to see the last first I ever need to see!”

    I guess that means women need not apply in the future. Because there is no future for women in the highest position in this nation. At least not in that man’s lifetime. (He sounded much younger than I am. So there goes my vision of seeing a women – of any color – of being president.)

    Yes, the more things change, the more things stay the same.

    I’m late for work. I’ve got to go. I’ll check in in a few hours when I get to work and I am between meetings, appointments, etc.

    oh, and captainkickstand when Jim Jones offered his poison laced kool-aid, there were those who questioned. They were “convinced” by their own “outside world” that what they were being told to do was right and “true”. Your argument holds no water with me. Even a broken clock is correct twice a day.

    Thanks GRL, for giving us this place to be.

  13. Marge ~
    thanks for your this post(s).

    You know how I value what you say, And CKS(captainkickstand) is just insane. Don’t listen to him.

    uh oh, did I just say something nasty?

  14. Moderation appears to be working, folks!

  15. Glad you blasted the “celebration” b.s. Grl!

    I guess you can celebrate if you think it’s a wonderful thing that a faux AA can be elected so long as they are straight and male. I find no reason to celebrate such affronts to women and gays.

    California, supposedly a very “liberal” state voted against giving it’s gay citizens the same rights as all other citizens. Celebrate? No fraid not.

    As for the kickstand A’hole, I would like to ignore him but so often he gets others fired up and then he ends up highjacking the entire thread and we never discuss the things we want to discuss but what “he” the widdle-weenie wants to discuss. If he can’t keep his piehole shut and wants to “interact”, let him start his own blog. He floats around the internet like a turd in a cesspool stinking up everywhere he goes.

  16. I haven’t sorted everything out yet. Most of all I feel a certain sense of relief that the outcome has been decided even though I am adamantly against what is to come.

    I will be posting something a little later reflecting my thoughts upon this whole ordeal. Chances are that some of my opinions will not be appreciated by some, if not a majority. But I have held a lot of things in for a long while (believe it or not) and need to get the stuff off my chest.

    Stay tuned.

  17. IA, I’m glad you have set up moderation. At least I can come here without getting a sick stomach. I can’t watch television because I couldn’t handle the gloating and self satisfied smirks of the so-called journalists.

    Kenosha Marge, You’ve said it all. Thank you.

    I will not be a hypocrite – he is not my president. His dishonesty and secretivness have not changed just because he has been able to hoodwink enough people to be named president.

    I did not watch any of the congratulations and celebration speeches and do not intend to turn the TV on for a day or two. I need to escape the sight and sound of this phoney as long as I can. As soon as he was proclaimed the winner, I ceased to watch anything.

    I would pull a Rip Van Winkle, except I want to raise my voice loud and clear in the coming days to participate in IA’s “Hawk” proposal.

    While there is joy in abundance in Kenya, here in my corner there is a lot of disbelief. We do not know who this man is !!!!!!!!! He could not be believed during the campaign and he cannot be believed now.

    As for the Clintons — give me a break. They are two of the biggest hypocrites on the face of the earth. I’ve no respect at all left for either one of them. If this disturbs some people, so be it. Lady Rothschild has it right. Even Ted Kennedy had more principle than these two.

  18. This FL voter voter (R) for the first time in 42 years. I have also, as of May 31, become an Independent, None of his was done to punish anyone, just that I found it fitting.

  19. Look forward to your thoughts, Pagan Power!
    We respect anything that is well-thought out and reasoned.

  20. chatblu, I too became an Independent on May 31st. It suits me because I don’t have any respect for either party and don’t have to contain with the “party loyalty” b.s. I respect individuals here and there, yes, parties? No.

  21. I went INDIE around the same time…Undeclared…as they say here…

  22. I agree..hillary does have some explaining to do. I feel sort of used!! Will it help to become an independent? I certainly can’t see myself ever voting democratic ever again. I was hoping that out of all of this a good strong third party would emerge. How many people actually were involved in PUMA and all the other sites? Did McCain get a substantial amount of votes from the groups involved with all of this? If that is the case…what on earth would have happened had we not supported him?

  23. Marge, I swear if I didn’t know better I’d think it was me posting your diaries while sleepwalking.

    Except that I could never do it half as well.

  24. kenoshamarge — I’m with you! What this election season has taught me most of all is to stay true to my Independent nature. So I have officially become an Independent Liberal. I will never be a partisan again!

    And since we suffered a sleepless night due to gunshots going off all night in my neighborhood, I’ll be living closer to you next year. Even though my hubby voted for O, we decided to move from this neighborhood to the southside of Milwaukee. We don’t want to be around here when the inevitable disappointments come during O’s presidency. I shudder to think about what will happen when O doesn’t match the culture of rising expectations from his own race.

    ************
    A couple of other comments upon outside validation and reaffirming facts and truth via your outside world…

    First, I’m a Liberal who grew up in a very conservative home. And when I mean conservative, I mean Christian fundamentalist, evangelical, pentacostal (i.e., talking in “tongues”) home. I’ve probably gone to more church in my formative years then most people have gone their entire lives. We lived at Church; youth group on Fridays and Sundays, services midweek, Sunday morn, and Sunday night, Bible study during the week, Sunday school and Bible camp during the summer. We moved around a lot, and I went to many churches. I grew up during the time the Moral Majority was taking over republican politics and pastors were forced to preach about God wanting conservatives in government and that these churches were the chosen ones by God, and that all the rest of the world was going to hell. I was subject to teachings about Satanism and witchcraft, and was told that ANY religion that was not the one from my church were from the Devil. We also had book burnings and album burnings.

    This was subsequent to the Jim Jones tragedy. THAT was my outside world growing up.

    As I began to notice inconsistencies in the teachings of my church and from reading my own Bible due to my inquisitive analytical nature, I began to rebel. My mother would withhold lunch money from me when I threatened to miss church-related events due to my school interests (like Math team), and I had more than one talking to from a myriad of pastors about being a girl who thought too much, and that as a girl I should just rely upon them to tell me what to do and how to live. The usual mantra: Male pastors were the ones with the knowledge and wisdom and women should just rely upon them for it. They were not allowed to interpret the Bible, just reiterate the teachings. Women were supposed to bake for the bake sales, and leave the important stuff to the men.

    I guess I was emerging as a feminist in my own right, even though I didn’t know what it really meant, and had been taught it was an evil thing.

    Ironically, this was also the time of the emergence of conservative colleges. So the next trick by my pastors and mother was to get me a full scholarship to one of these if I just walked the line. If I had chosen to remain and use my knowledge for the benefit of these churches (that is until I found a man), then I would have had lots of financial, social, and moral support (because thousands would have been praying for my success). How could a person give up such a tempting offer?

    But, I chose to not rely upon my outside world and be independent, to give up all those opportunities to venture out on my own. My parents split up when I was 8 yrs. old, and most of my life I went without a father figure. Although my church tried terribly hard to be one for me. I lived my life without a “father”.

    Ironically as well, one of the churches we attended which was actually one of the less rabidly radical ones was an “Assembly of God” one. This church was deemed even too radical for Sarah Palin. So I never bought that she had radical Christian views. Incidentally, I was mocked by my liberal friends (and some atheists) because of this belief I had about Sarah.

    Now after 20 years of being devoted to the Dem Party, and numerous liberal orgs, I was being told the same thing AGAIN–that men would do the thinking for me and I should just shut up and make the coffee– but this time it was covered in different stripes. There were different rationalizations and enticements for me to remain a part of their fold. InsightAnalytical, kenoshamarge, and countless other PUMAs have been explaining them for months.

    So I chose to depart from this outside world. Because I did not need their validation.

    A person only needs your own validation which has been formed based upon a myriad of other independent thoughts. Partisan ones are like a church that hem you in to a particular ideology. And the Dem Party has ceased being the place with the best ideas and is a mere ideological haven. Just like the Republican party had become.

    Both are focused upon outside validation, like a child who needs a father.

    Obama is a man who never got over being without a father and chose to surround himself with like-minded people to validate him and get him where he desperately believes he deserves to be. The followers of the Dem Party have the same need for a father figure head, and that’s why they chose him. The African American community has shown that they feel they can’t get along without a father figure as well.

    I think we all need to contemplate how we are going to get along in this new “Fatherland” dominated by socialists.

    excuse my long rant

  25. Sorry, Leslie

    You were the one to bring up Jim Jones first, and I mean to recognize you in my long-winded response.

    The only reason I get so long and personal with my posts is because NO ONE would believe me if I didn’t sound more specific and spoke more from generalities when I made such claims about Christian Conservative radicals being akin to New Democratic Party neo-progressives.

    I truly believe that they are the opposite side of the same coin.

    He just couldn’t resist another swipe at Hillary.

    S’okay, though. She asked for it.

    On second thought, that wasn’t a swipe at Hillary. It was a swipe at every woman in the world who has the gall to believe she is as good as a man.

  27. well, I’ve been without a President since Martin Sheen went off the air. I figure I can muddle on through 4 more years without a President. I could probably muddle on through the rest of my life without a President.

    I would like to see the PUMA movement evolve into a support group for women, also a group that advocates for women’s issues- all women’s issues if that’s possible. NOW is totally useless. I was appalled that NOW not only endorsed a chauvinist creep (to say pig would be an insult to barnyard animals everywhere) but broke it’s non-endorsement policy to do so. Can you say beat me Daddy? Those early feminists- Susan Anthony, Elizabeth Stanton, Alice Paul- they are doubtless spinning in their graves right about now. They did not fight for the right to vote only to have other women vote for this chauvinist clown. We definitely need a group that promotes women, respect between & among women, & most importantly self-respect. It was horrifying to see these bitches (yeah y’all read right) trash Sarah Palin, & even Hillary as they attempted to break the glass ceiling. Like the old saying goes, nobody moves forward til we all move forward.

    AS for the future, other than PUMA developing into a women’s organization, I don’t even want to contemplate it right now.

    “well, I’ve been without a President since Martin Sheen went off the air. I figure I can muddle on through 4 more years without a President. I could probably muddle on through the rest of my life without a President.”

    That is sooo true!!

    I guess that is why I bought and watch the West Wing series – all seven years worth. And that is why I continue to watch “The American President” and “Dave“, and other movies where the president is actually honest and good.

    AND obama’s election reminds me — and has for along time — of the movie “The Candidate“.
    You know, when he(robert redford) wins the election and then with his deer in headlights look tries to figure out what in the heck he got himself into.

    Except this is real life and obama is in less trouble than we are. And I never thought I’d say this about another resident in the White House after GWB.

  29. NOW is a joke. A sad, sick, little joke! A national organization of women should support women. ALL women. Not just women who fit into their particular idea of what a feminist is or ought to be.

    Working women are not all liberals.

    Stay at home moms are not all conservatives.

    We don’t all fit into nice little categories.

    Women that don’t support other women have no place in my life. And that means any woman that voted for Obama. Supporting misogyny is despicable and unforgivable. At least to me.

  30. Amen, Marge.

    I have long said that the one thing women could stand to learn from men is the art of teamwork. We form family teams and social teams, but we never pull together politically or in the workplace.

    Oh, and let’s not forge that old ’70s mantra that I expect to start hearing again any day now; feminists are all lesbians.

    Under Obama I fully expect that meme to come back into vogue. We already know that gays have been thrown under the bus for good (see Not Your Sweetie’s post on Prop 8 in CA), so it’s a good place to lump dissenters. That way the radical right won’t complain when we bundle them all off to re-education camps and later “disappear” them.
