A Palin Thanksgiving

I'm laughing my butt off watching the press act so horrified by this video. OMG!! Turkeys being killed on a turkey farm!! I had no idea! I thought they grew on trees!

They're spinning this as Palin being too stupid to know what was going on behind her, but what they don't show was during the interview someone pointed it out and she wasn't worried about it. Besides, she obviously looks behind her at one point and sees the guy working on the turkey -- she was very aware of what was happening. I particularly like the hysterics about blurring out the gory parts so it wouldn't be too disturbing -- and the stuff they're blurring out is at the feet. Here's the unedited version that was broadcase in Anchorage:

And why is the media still on such a mission to try to destroy Sarah? I said it before, they've got to bury her deep because she's a threat.

Intelligent Americans realize that the turkey on their plate was once walking around on a turkey farm, and that turkey farms kill turkeys. Only the truly stupid would freak out about it with shock, and she could care less about whether she gets the "stupid" vote. Maybe that's why she lost the election.

For those of you who are liberal, I hate to break this to you but steaks used to be cows, and the cows had to be killed to get the meat. Chicken farms kill chickens, and hogs die to make bacon.

This is one of the things I like about Palin -- she doesn't pull any punches and keeps it real. There are way too many phonies in government, and it's refreshing to see someone who's not afraid to be a real person. By doing this kind of stuff, she elicits over-the-top liberal reactions and in the process reveals how hysterically out of touch with reality liberals really are.

Turkeys dont grow on trees. They come frozen in the meat department after being flown in from Washington DC where we have an overpopulation now after the recent election. The only problem is we still have breasts and drumsticks, but turkeys now only have a left wing.

yea i saw this on TV.....i made the mistake of flipping past MSNBC

they were truly shocked and appalled.

I wonder where they think their food comes from?

I heard (though i don't know if its true) that they asked Palin if the backdrop was OK....and she didn't see a problem with it.

Good for her! I'm tired of the overly sensitive lexus-Liberals who want to eat their butterball but don't think turkeys should have to die to get it there for them

Um, seeing as this is a hunting forum.... you could just be preaching to the choir here. Yes

There are a few people on here that would surprise you. They're pro-gun control, pro-abortion, anti-religion, people who think the world's problems can be solved if we hug everybody and sing "Kumbaya.' They've parroted every other plank in the far-left platform, so I'm just waiting for one of them to claim that they hunt but agree with animal rights activists.

I met a guy who was raised an avid hunter and all that...but he was a firm believer in gun control and insisted that Americans don't need anything more than single shot long guns.....

so yea...i agree....people, even hunters...would surprise you sometimes.

The one shot long gun idea works great until you have more than one person breaking into your home.

I do hear that type of comment on occasion, but mainly from traditionalists, and always refering to hunting. Not Constitutional rights.

I hear ya man. Why last week I had to use my 'lil fren' M-16 with grenade launcher to keep an element of the Columbian cartel at bay (had me mixed up with someone else) during a two hour running gun battle. Hell, a month before that if it wasn't for my trusty AK 47 with drum clip and outfitted with night vision those Crips and bloods might have broken my perimeter defense (had me mixed up with someone else). Then there was that band of neo nazi's I had to take out with claymores and sniper fire (definitely had me mixed up with someone else).

This is getting to darn easy. To add an element of challenge to my home defense battles, I think I'm switching to muzzleloader or bow. Just got to find a way to call them criminals in close to shooting range.

That or I better move.

Hey soco, just this week three towns over from me, two men broke into a home, held an 8 year old boy at gun point, and robbed the house while the father and mother could only watch. You may not need an ak for protection, but it would be nice to confront such acts of violence with an end all tool. Obviously these things do occur, even in rural settings and states not particularly known for such violence.

A heck, I agree just kinda funning at the kind of firepower thought needed in most cases. I keep my Ruger MKII 22 in the drawer of my night stand. Along with the other precautions of locking all doors and windows and making sure there locked every night, alarm, and living in a decent neighborhood, I feel that's more then enough.

Nothing is certain, but in 99.9 percent of possible cases, I believe that is enough firepower to handle an intruder provided they didn't get the jump on me. Because if they get the jump on you doesn't matter if you have a SAW machine gun in bed with you if they have a Saturday night special to your head and you're sleeping.

The only time I would feel, I'd personally need high amounts of firepower is if I knew either hardcore elements of organized crime were coming to take me out or law enforcement was coming to get me. I'm not worried about either one of those elements so feel secure with my 22. I've hit cottontails running and at distances up to fifty yards with that pistol so think I could readily sink five rounds in an intruders head across a room if need be.

SoCo, it seems your knowledge of assault weapons and associated law is about as good as Civet's. Grenade launchers and SAWs are illegal.

And you might want to check the stats on how effective a .22LR is against assailants. There's a big difference between a cottontail and a 200 lb man -- especially if he's wearing heavy clothing. Hope you filed off the front sight.

John Hinckley hit four people with a .22, and all of them lived. There's a reason people who rely on firearms for defense don't carry .22s. There's an old rule in combat that says to never get in a handgun fight with a caliber that doesn't start with "4".
