    Were it not for Palin and her brave crusade, the children (and adults) of the US of A would not know crap about Paul Revere. She is single-handedly solving the education problem while simultaneously bringing us back to our American roots.


    This much is obvious.

Telling someone "Hey there's militia over there" is not the same as saying a defiant statement of "You'll never take our weapons!"

    Or are they the same statement in your eyes?

    Or is it more likely she just had a brain fart?
    She also made the false claim that Revere warned the British "by ringing those bells," only there is no source which reveals him ringing any bells as a warning sign to the British.

    But hey, since when does accuracy matter to cultists?

    It seems he was a big part of a bell ringing thing. Apparently bells were rung. Maybe he rang a bell, or a few; would that substantively change the account?

    Good enough. I'll give her a B-, since I didn't know crap about this before. Perhaps she stumbled on some words, like 'he' - 'they'.

    Well since her version was that he rung bells to warn the British, which is ludicrous, I would say that substantially changes the account.

    Hell, I even had it as my sig file for awhile there.

    "He who warned uh, the British that they weren't gonna be takin' away our arms, uh by ringing those bells, and um, makin' sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed."

    Fair enough... that is all that I have really said. She mangled her answer and it all hinges on the term, "warn". This term has many different interpretations. Those that use it to attack Palin are acting silly. Those that are defending Palin to their last breath are acting silly. Really, we have a lot of silly people acting silly. The whole thing is silly. Silly is a really retarded word.

    trade =/= foriegn policy. Governors go to and talk to other businesses and other governments about trade all the time.

    Here's what an actual historian has to say on the subject.

    Prof. ALLISON: Well, he's not firing warning shots. He is telling people so that they can ring bells to alert others. What he's doing is going from house to house, knocking on doors of members of the Committees of Safety, saying the regulars are out. That is, he knew that General Gage was sending troops out to Lexington and Concord, really Concord, to seize the weapons being stockpiled there, but also perhaps to arrest John Hancock and Samuel Adams, leaders of the Continental Congress who were staying in the town of Lexington.

    Remember, Gage was planning - this is a secret operation; that's why he's moving at night. He gets over to Cambridge, the troops start marching from Cambridge, and church bells are ringing throughout the countryside.

    BLOCK: So Paul Revere was ringing those bells? He was a silversmith, right?

    Prof. ALLISON: Well, he was - he also was a bell ringer. That is, he rang the bells at Old North Church as a boy. But he, personally, is not getting off his horse and going to ring bells. He's telling other people - and this is their system before Facebook, before Twitter, before NPR - this was the way you get a message out, is by having people ring church bells, and everyone knows there is an emergency.

    And by this time, of course, the various town committees of safety, militia knew what the signals were, so they knew something was afoot. So this is no longer a secret operation for the British.

    Revere isn't trying to alert the British, but he is trying to warn them. And in April of 1775, no one was talking about independence. We're still part of the British Empire. We're trying to save it. So this is a warning to the British Empire what will happen if you provoke Americans.

    How Accurate Were Palin's Paul Revere Comments? : NPR
    If you think he's wrong, then you need to start ****ting some documentation to prove it. So far, all the documentation available swings in Palin's favor.




    As a side note, she talks like a hick. Is she tool important to finish a word and can she talk without saying uh and um?
    Superiority complex much?

    Still waiting for you to show how Paul Revere warned the British by ringing bells?

    And still waiting for you to answer, do you think Obama doesn't know what year it is or do you think he had a brain fart when he wrote 2008?
    From an actual historian on the subject, as far as the bells go.

    Prof. ALLISON: Well, he was - he also was a bell ringer. That is, he rang the bells at Old North Church as a boy. But he, personally, is not getting off his horse and going to ring bells. He's telling other people - and this is their system before Facebook, before Twitter, before NPR - this was the way you get a message out, is by having people ring church bells, and everyone knows there is an emergency.

    Palin never said that Revere was personally ringing bells.

    Evidence proving that she didn't misspeak has been posted, as well.
