Saradise Found - Chapter 18 -- The Crazy Woman Will Keynote the February Tea Party Convention

Here's the scoop:

Nashville Tennessee, February 4, 5 & 6, 2010. Palin's keynote will be at 8:45 a.m. on the 5th. Her topic is rumored to be the 9 principles and 12 values of the 9/12 Project:

The 9 principles are:

1. America is good
2. I believe in God and He is the center of my life
3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday
4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.
5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
6. I have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.
8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.
9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

The 12 values are:

1. Honesty
2. Reverence
3. Hope
4. Thrift
5. Humility
6. Charity
7. Sincerity
8. Moderation
9. Hard work
10. Courage
11. Personal Responsibility
12. Gratitude

Here's part of the Tea Party Convention's biography of Palin:

In Alaska, her top priorities included fiscal restraint, limiting the size of government, resource development, education, equitable oil valuation as well as transportation and infrastructure development. Palin fought for ethics reform and transparency in government.

Palin has a long record of achievement and experience in public office. Prior to her election as Governor, Palin served two terms on the Wasilla City Council and two terms as the mayor of Wasilla. During her tenure, she reduced property tax levels while increasing services and made Wasilla a business-friendly environment, drawing in new industry.

Under her leadership as Governor, Alaska invested $5 billion in state savings, overhauled education funding and protected Alaska's natural resources. She created Alaska's Petroleum Systems Integrity Office to provide oversight and maintenance of oil and gas equipment, facilities and infrastructure and the Climate Change Subcabinet to prepare a climate change strategy for Alaska.

During Governor Palin's first year in office, three of her administration's major proposed pieces of legislation passed—an overhaul of the state's ethics laws, a competitive process to construct a natural gas pipeline and a restructuring of Alaska's oil valuation formula.

Palin is past chair of the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission, a multistate government agency that promotes the conservation and efficient recovery of domestic oil and natural gas resources while protecting health, safety and the environment. She also served as chair of the National Governors Association (NGA) Natural Resources Committee, which was charged with pursuing legislation to ensure state needs are considered as federal policy is formulated in the areas of agriculture, energy, environmental protection and natural resource management.

But -- but -- some of those principles are contradictory. You can't be the ultimate authority and still not be above the law.

And the others are just stupid.

Alaska I hope you are gearing up to correct the record that Sarah puts out there as her Perfect and glowing record. As far as I can see there are some glaring errors or left out things such as her fighting for ethics and transparency in government. If I am not mistaken she only fought for making others ethical and transparent but fought being ethical and transparent herself. The world needs you guys to really gear up to clear up the misrepresentations.

They have obviously never looked up the word "principle" in a dictionary, to discover it means "a code of conduct or rule for behavior." Their 9 principles are really values, and their 12 values are really principles, at least for those of us smart enough to speak and understand English.

God help me. I live here in Nashville. When Bush was President, the whole city would lock up every time he came here.

But we can pray for snow. When it snows here, (very rarely), even just flurries, the entire city shuts down. Usually the ground isn't even frozen enough for it to stick. The grocery stores get wiped out, schools and buisinesses close, state government.etc.
I am NOT exaggerating.
We had a real Autumn this year so, hopefully, it will at least flurry enough for people to stay home.

Well, It looks to me like Sara is already a fail on principle #3 and #5...

... and EPIC fail on values 1, 4, 5, 7, 9, and 11.

At the head of this post it says.... "Her topic is rumored to be the 9 principles and 12 values of the 9/12 Project:".....Don't you folks understand what "rumored" means ? It means that no-one has any idea what Sarah Palin is really gonna say on that day next year and yet here you all are, you know, attacking her for something she hasn't even done. Are you really are so desperate to smear this woman that you;re attacking her because someone says she MIGHT say something? Sounds kinda desperate to me...

Philip Munger said...


That's what I heard.

So what should the CW talk about, if not that?

ZIP NOLAN said...

Okay, you lost me...what is "the CW" ?

My point is that it seems kinda strange for people to pile on Sarah Palin not for what she actually said, but for what you said she MIGHT say. It's like me running a whole bit saying that this blog is gonna say such-and-such in February next year and everyone attacks you for it.

And, like, who knows what might have happened by the time this speech of hers come around ?..Maybe she'll talk about the way the Healthcare thing is getting so unpopular, maybe she'll talk about unemployment, I don't know, no-one does...seems like you're just making up excuses to attack her.

Philip Munger said...


By listing an event, its time, linking to its home page, posting from its manifesto, and posting an extract of its bio of the CW, and posting the trailer to a sympathetic movie about the teabaggers I'm attacking?

What a slavish sack of, uh - putty - you seem to be.

clark said...

all of these palin stories are such crap... [but i CAN'T STOP READING IT!!]
it's like being obsessed with celebrity drug busts or something... all that crap about bitney in ADN today.
the eighth grade payback/mean girl mentality of her book from cover to cover.
i thought she'd be fading into the background by now.

ZIP NOLAN said...

"What a slavish sack of, uh - putty - you seem to be."

Pretty quick to throw the insults around, aren't you ? Did I touch a nerve ? Having read some of your posts here you seem a particularly frustrated and embittered individual...that's really no way to go through life.

Philip Munger said...


I'm quite happy, thank you, but frustrated with people who support pathological liars as the latter slither their way upward.

Why didn't you answer my question above?

Jaime said...

You know, Zip - I don't argue with people who believe the Earth is flat, or who believe the Moon landing was a hoax. Why would I dignify Sarah Palin or any of her supporters with the idea thast their insanity has any credibility? If you are defending her, it is very likely you are either one of her supporters, or just a troll looking for a reaction. Does this stimulate you? Does it make you feel connected to people, or you just one more pathetic, lonely frightened authoritarian who need to dominate or submit? Go play with yourself. It seems to be what you are good at.
