    Your moniker reminds me of the time I was working construction in my youth. A co-worker of mine came up and started banging on my hardhat with his hardhat. He told me that's the sound two turtles make when they ****ed. LOL!

    its true-but its normally not mating-its a dominance thing between males. I have a couple greek tortoises (brown slightly bigger than the common box turtles most people have seen on roads in the rain). I have had them for almost 20 years-I used to have a couple more that were old w hen I got them (30 years is about the normal LS) and have since died. well anyway in 93 I bought from a place in arizona a variation of this type of tortoise called a Hermans tortoise. it was male (I want males because I wasn't going to breed them and females have more health issues). So after the vet checked it out I put it in with the other 2-3 turtles. well one of the other ones started butting into the new one. later it tried to mount t he new one

    so I called the breeder and he noted it was normal and "that's why they are called "Greek Tortoises".

    the two remaining ones still do the butting attacks after 20 years. they are in a big 6X10 turtle tub in the basement-I can here it up on the second floor.

    It's pretty amazing that all the lies about her haven't worked at killing her politically, but then they come from wonks who fear her so much they were making news lies every few minutes there for a while.

    If you do the research on what she really did for Alaska you find someone who pretty damn smart and her accomplishments are astounding and far ans away beat the hell out of anything Obama has done.

    I personally hope she keeps doing what he's been doing, which is driving the Liberals completely out of there minds, because she's showing she can take it and dish it out.

    I am loving it, because Olberzmann, Matthews, Schultz, get apoplectic over the thought of her.

    I don't think Palin has a chance of getting on the Republican ticket regardless. However, she will probably continue to be a well known name in politics due to her outspoken nature. In that capacity, good for her.

    :LOL: we do the exact same thing with Kevlars; we even call it "turtle f****ng"

    long story short, don't fall asleep in the 7-ton





    as for Palin omg what an idiot she is eh? i mean, gosh, how stupid is she? i mean, someone impersonating her claimed that she could see Russia from her house


    From the Wall Street Journal:

    ...The former Alaskan Governor showed sound political and economic instincts by inveighing forcefully against the Federal Reserve's latest round of quantitative easing. According to the prepared text of remarks that she released to National Review online, Mrs. Palin also exhibited a more sophisticated knowledge of monetary policy than any major Republican this side of Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan.

    Stressing the risks of Fed "pump priming," Mrs. Palin zeroed in on the connection between a "weak dollar—a direct result of the Fed's decision to dump more dollars onto the market"—and rising oil and food prices. She also noted the rising world alarm about the Fed's actions, which by now includes blunt comments by Germany, Brazil, China and most of Asia, among many others.

    "We don't want temporary, artificial economic growth brought at the expense of permanently higher inflation which will erode the value of our incomes and our savings," the former GOP Vice Presidential nominee said. "We want a stable dollar combined with real economic reform. It's the only way we can get our economy back on the right track."

    Mrs. Palin's remarks may have the beneficial effect of bringing the dollar back to the center of the American political debate, not to mention of the GOP economic platform. Republican economic reformers of the 1970s and 1980s—especially Ronald Reagan and Jack Kemp—understood the importance of stable money to U.S. prosperity.

    On the other hand, the Bush Administration was clueless. Its succession of Treasury Secretaries promoted dollar devaluation little different from that of the current Administration, while the White House ignored or applauded an over-easy Fed policy that created the credit boom and housing bubble that led to financial panic.

    Misguided monetary policy can ruin an Administration as thoroughly as higher taxes and destructive regulation, and the new GOP majority in the House and especially the next GOP President need to be alert to the dangers. Mrs. Palin is way ahead of her potential Presidential competitors on this policy point, and she shows a talent for putting a technical subject in language that average Americans can understand...

    i really, truly, deeply hope that you and everyone like you maintains this belief that you are safe underestimating her.

    because i am going to have a great time watching your heads explode in Nov 2012. It will be even more delicious than when Bush beat Kerry.

    Agree with you that Palin is not the dimwit that the Left has and continues to portray her as. And I see her as an excellent motivator and energizer for advancing conservative values/principles.

    But don't think she should or will re-enter the political arena as a candidate. She is too polarizing and the press would (again) crucify her. When she resigned the governorship of Alaska I think she eliminated any option/possibility of a Presidential run. And can imagine she realized that at the time...

    I find it odd when people say the press 'crucified' her. Oh I'm sorry? What was she attacked for? Her intelligence? We'll color me silly, that's what everyone in politics gets attacked for. Whether what they have inside their skull is enough to make them president.

    Maybe it was the fact that she herself provided more soundbytes that one could possibly ever use? All this bitching about Palin being called dumb when Obama was attacked for being a Muslim, Christian, Atheist, Communist, Fascist and Nazi in the same sentence(Of course you'd have to watch FOX to hear it all in the same sentence) is ridonkulous.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
