Ahhhh, therein lies the crux of the problem regarding forum usage. I guess I jumped the gun & deleted my email notifications from this forum. I actually have to HUNT on the webpage for posts & replies, cumbersome ..... guess I could go into my account & reactivate notifications ....but .... nah.
Hahahahahahha!!!!!! You be so hilarious, I love you .... let's get married!
I can't give you any titles or private information, you silly goose, that's JUST what I need ..... having you in my "real life."
Of course you know, Wiki isn't ALWAYS right and I guess I'm just stubborn like that, but I can't make myself play your game. Guns, guns, guns ..... I'm responsible with mine, are you? Ok ... here's where you rant about your prowess......
I can't WAIT to hear how you cut me to ribbons .... I'm shaking in my liberal, "unemployed," heavily mortgaged, patent leather boots!
One little confession ... I HAVEN'T been entirely honest with you. I AM on sabbatical with a lovely grant from one of the drug companies (what can I say, they like to promote "social agenda" by giving stipends to us "literary" types), and I do teach, currently on the U level, but I have taught (History, Public Policy, Sociology ... ok ... you'd say "Socialism," and various other subjects across the grade spectrum. If you have kids and if you've ever sent them to ANY kind of traditional educational institutions, I COULD be/may have been/might be their teacher! That's kind of a scary thought.
As for "insert flag here," just WHERE were you pointing? Again: .....Hahahahahahhaa! Have you ever considered a career in comedy? You do make me laugh.
'I can't give you any titles...' - SnS
Just as I thought.
'I HAVEN'T been entirely honest with you.' - SnS
'I COULD be/may have been/might be their teacher!' - SnS
Not possible. They would have set you straight by now.
'As for "insert flag here," just WHERE were you pointing?' - SnS
Is this like where you admitted you couldn't find the edit button?
Ahhhhh, cut to the quick, I am. Don't you love me anymore?
I am having SO much fun .... I really do wish I could give you personal information so we could have this kind of meaningful dialogue when I feel down & need to build myself up!
However, though I don't agree with (duh!!!!) many of the ideologies & opinions espoused on this here den of rattlers, I know we are violating the terms & conditions of service by engaging in person-to-person communique in the public forum. I'm pretty sure they want us to discuss the topic at the top of the page, and we're not doing that. I have respect for the moderators and the forum, no matter HOW perverse the participants' various offerings.
I GOTTA get off now .... "60 Minutes" is showing an interview with our President and our outgoing Secretary of State! I like the President, but I LOVE me some Hilllllz!
"Humor" .............really? You think you're THAT funny? I'm not sure you understood, when I said you were funny, I was mocking you. Just want to say that, in the spirit of "disclosure."
I'm just a little bored with your Palin-style word salad type of discourse, don'cha know. I DO find it interesting you MUST respond to everything I, a known troll with 7 or 8 alter egos here (did I get the number right?), allegedly posts. Personally, I think YOU may be Jane and White and maybe even OrangeOne .... you DO love to stir it up! As for Stonekettle, he's really talented. If YOU have a similar website where you display your "humor & sarcasm," I'd love to check it out ... or are you still "on the road in previews?" Don't worry, someday you'll get your chance on "Broadway!" Well.....maybe not.
Guess I'll have to (again) be the better person & leave it as it lies, since I know you'll rush to respond to my "liberal drivel." Can't seem to let go of the "last word," can ya? My yoga teachin' mama always says: "they can't argue if you don't. Namaste" She may be right, but I'm sure you'll try! Don't sprain your fingers on the keyboard!
I still love you ---- but I'm afraid our "romance" has come to an end. I love you like I love the sand that gets into my sandals on the beaches of Malibu (isn't that where you placed me?) and irritates my adorable manicured tootsies. If there wasn't "YOU" in the world, victories like BHO's wouldn't feel NEARLY as sweet. It's schadenfreude, really, it may be wrong, but it's oh so human! One of those little joys of life.
Cheers .... my honey has decanted an excellent pinot & it's time for a glass & a great old Hitchcock film.
I am merely responding to your comments, which are all personal. Tough to talk about other topics.
As I said before, I knew you flagged me. You made the mistake twice now in claiming that I used a 'certain word' (libtard, btw). I never used that word against anyone. I did nothing more than inform and clarify, as you attempted to do as "jane". I found it interesting that, as 'jane', you said nothing to the person who actually used that word, but felt it important enough to attack me. So be it.
Btw, as to the word hatred. Hmmm. I challenge you to show me one comment I made to you, just one, that is filled with hatred. I don't feel hatred toward you, I feel pity. My comments are a combination of humor and sarcasm, and they might be biting to you as they hit close to home, but there is never an ounce of hatred in it. That is the liberal mistake. They hate with all their hearts and then declare that those who oppose them are filled with hatred. Interesting.
Now, I don't blame you. It's not your fault. You have been surrounded by it all your life, while you were growing up as a child, when you went to College, and even now in your adulthood. But it's not too late. You CAN walk away from it, although it will be hard. You took the first step coming here. Even though your initial purpose was to bash Palin and Conservatives in general, you stayed and by staying it shows that you have a desire inside of you to learn. That's a good thing. Reach for that, embrace it. You CAN walk away from the dark.
I find it interesting, also, that it is bugging the heck out of you that we know you are flagging. I'll keep that technique secret, as it appears you're desperate to know.
As to banning on any website - That is the preference of the website owner, not a 1st amendment violation. You would know that if you had read the comments policy on that "Stonekettle" website you gave me. He agrees with me on that issue.
(there, I responded without the appropriate quotes. Does that make you feel a little more secure?)
It's all personal with you, isn't it? You DO adore me! Awesome. But, this isn't a dating site. Can't you say anything about your "new political party" or the great Jefferson quote? Even Sarah Palin?
Hey, guess what? I DID flag you (yesterday?) on your post to that woman with the special needs child defending your use of a certain word. So, as I said before, guess I found it "threatening" and flagged it. BTW ....how do you know when you're flagged, do they send you a message or something? I haven't gotten any. Have you flagged me?
Hey, you'll appreciate this: on one of the other pages to which you pointed me, a commenter said he went on Governor Palin's Facebook page & asked her "how am I failing as a parent considering my 17-year old daughter hasn't yet gone out & gotten pregnant?" (yeah, just a little tacky), but I did find it pretty funny when he said, "they wasted no time, minutes, in trampling on MY first amendment rights & removing my comment from the page."
You may speak RINOs, but I see HIPPOcrites, not dead people.
'...you find it your duty to shout down any opposing ideas and spend SO much time here with your "family."' - SnS
Btw, just like you exposed yourself when you didn't know anything about the flagging process (oh, how embarrassing), you apparently don't know anything about how replies on this site work. Methinks you were 'out to sea' way too long. Anyway, just to help you out, replies to me go to my e-mail and I can receive my e-mail anywhere in the world. A proficient world traveler like yourself should have known that. It appears your little 'story' to me is breaking down piece by piece, as all liberal lies eventually do. Take Obama, for example. Ahh, but I digress.
Now, back to getting me those book titles so that I can further your bank account and expand my reading expertise...oh, that's right. You can't do that.
And, one more thing. When I quote you, I'm taking the pertinent part of a statement that is right in front of the reader. It isn't misleading, it only points out to you the part I'm referring to. But, then, you knew that. You simply don't like being called out on what you say. That's okay. We will have that turned around the more you stay here.
I feel it now, as your calling out for hugs. I knew you needed them.
Well, you used a lot of words, but didn't say anything. I'll pass that off to the fact you just listened to Obama and Hillary. It happens.
So - 'I know we are violating the terms & conditions of service by engaging in person-to-person communique in the public forum.' - this isn't what you said and it was taken out of context? Enlighten me as to what more context you needed.
My "ilk" likes THIS one! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLGWyfGk_LU
Love, love LOVE you, Pukey! I might ask, however, if you're gonna QUOTE me (how flattering) you don't use the time honored conservative tradition of picking & choosing just to make your point and use the WHOLE quote. It's only fair. IF you know "fair." Rewriting history is something anyone CAN do, but it's really not according to Hoyle and frankly, it's beneath you.
Sorry, again, to break the rules of the forum, if this response is doing that. Just felt a little clarification might be called for, because, as an author, plagiarism and using people's writing out of context is a real problem. Again, flattering, but it is a no-no!
Don't worry, my time spent here, in your family space, has only galvanized my belief I'm on the RIGHT path ... and I don't mean the far right!!!!! C'mon ..... give it to me ... that was funny stuff!!!!!
I heard someone say the other day, "I'm off like a prom dress." I could stay & chat, but I see by your thousands & thousands of posts, that you find it your duty to shout down any opposing ideas and spend SO much time here with your "family."
I like it here. Hilarious. Nope ... no hope, sorry (not really). Still ICY as heck!
If I could fist bump you right now it would make me so happy .... but I fear what you need is a warm hug from a liberal because we DO give the best hugs. Just sending one through the interwebs isn't very satisfying for you, I'm sure, but just know, my sweetness, I'm sending one. Go to YouTube & find a nice version of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love," play it & think of me .... true brotherhood & the purest platonic love from me to you, SugarPie!
BTW --- The Barack/Hillary interview was FAB-U-LUSSSSSS!!!!! Maybe you can catch it online if you didn't get to see it. Makes me proud to be an American.
'I know we are violating the terms & conditions of service by engaging in person-to-person communique in the public forum.' - SnS
Ahhh, that's why you flag every person responding to you - it's a lack of knowledge of the comments policies. Okay. But, know this. If you can't prove something in a blog, don't say it in the first place, because that is no more than pretending you are something you aren't. It's as simple as that. You can call yourself the Queen of Sheba, but it doesn't make it true, no matter how outraged you may appear when someone calls you on it.
It appears, however, that you violate what you think are the rules whenever you feel the need, but hide under the false umbrella when you need to backtrack. I had already figured that.
This site, unlike MediaMatters and it's ilk, is a family of sorts, with dialogue back and forth from all it's members. The conversation is civil and only gets nasty if someone comes in like you did with the agenda you had. If you had read more and spewed less, you may have understood that.
I'm happy that you are getting something out of this. We find the more time a liberal spends here, the more the ice melts around them and they come closer to the truth. I feel we are close with you. Please keep coming back. There is hope.
Bruce Ja.... I PM'd you with the "secret handshake" for one of the forums/discussion sites I think you'll really enjoy. Let me know if you don't get it.
Palin's great. But so is Allen West, Rand Paul, Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum and Scott Walker to name a few. You should admit Bachmann should have done a lot better in the Iowa last year, but the voters got brainwashed against her. Then Santorum took her momentum and won in all conservative and republican states. But the deck was stacked against him with Mitt Romney being the elites choice and both Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich being hard-headed and not dropping out in time. Palin has her worked cut out if she runs in 2016. It will be the same thing thrown at her as Bachmann and Santorum. Plus I have a feeling Rand, Santorum, West and others may contemplate a run as well. Technically Santorum is next in line. I wish Palin well in whatever she does next. If she ran and won that would be great for the country.
Palin is awesome!!! All you haters can go fly a kite. If she is so "stupid" and "useless" as you haters say, why are you even talking about her?? Palin is one of the best things to happen to our party.
I suspect there may have been conditions to her contract that would interfere with her ability to do other work. She needs to be a free agent or move on to bigger and better things. Many conservatives were not (and are still not) happy with Fox News so she needs to distance herself from that network.
Haven't EVER flagged you, won't do it now. Sorry. Well, not unless you make a threat to hurt someone or yourself.
But gee, I DO want to know .... do you have a LIFE? Or do you just hover around here waiting to make pithy comments?
I've got Saturday stuff to do & I've wasted enough time baiting you.
Have a wonderful life. It gives me very little satisfaction, but I suspect you don't. God Bless You.
SnS are you there? My freaking internet went out again & I couldn't return your msg. Go to the chat room I have that research for you. thankyoumuch
You haven't answered any questions yet. I still want to know what books you've written. I'm curious to read into the mind of a liberal elite. Seriously. Don't you want the income? And, btw, a sabbatical for a liberal is just techno-babble for unemployed. We know that, so be careful what you say around here. You might divulge too much info.
I would like to see Palin and Gingrich team up. She so much as endorsed him in the primaries with Todd endorsement. They would make a great team
I would be happy with a Palin/Bachmann or Palin/West team up. I would also be OK with Palin/Rubio, but not the other way around because Rubio wants to pass immigration reform. If Palin were on top of the ticket she would close the borders and pass her own plan to reform the immigration system from corruption. Then Rubio wouldn't have his plans pass. It is his main problem. Take it out and Marco Rubio is pretty good. Better than Paul Ryan. I could also be OK with a West/DeMint ticket or Rand Paul/Allen West ticket.
Hmmmm, do you REALLY think it's appropriate to use terms like "libtard?" In my mind, and that of most sensitive, empathetic humans, the use of the suffix "tard" as a pejorative does a real disservice to those with developmental disabilities.
Just something to think about.
Oh, by the way .... nice "reach," you have no idea how many or what kinds of weapons I may have. I don't need you to defend me, I do ok.
'In my mind, and that of most sensitive, empathetic humans, the use of the suffix "tard" as a pejorative does a real disservice to those with developmental disabilities.' - SnS
Libtard is short for liberal retard, both legitimate words (a combination of two words, not a word with a suffix).
People with developmental disabilities are not, and should not be, considered 'retards', such as you inferred. I find it offensive for you to view them as such and then attempt to reflect that on others. Your bigotry is showing. That's not nice.
Just something to think about.
I have been reading, but did not feel compelled to speak to anyone until now. I have created an account just for the purpose to speak on something I think I may know something about. I know this may be considered off topic, but I feel I must say something. As the mother and the sister of persons with developmental disabilities, what you call the "legitimate word," "tard" IS offensive. It is considered hate speech in most compassionate and informed communities.
Popular usage, as defined in most dictionaries (as in www.dictionary.com) defines it as such:
n. a person who behaves as if retarded. (See also retard. Derogatory and potentially cruel.) : You tard! Why did you do that?"
"Libtard" is not recognized as a legitimate word by official sources and those sources that do recognize and sanction it deserve to be called on it. There is a nationwide campaign to educate the public on the offensive nature of "The R Word." "Tard" is a portion of that word. Personally, I find the use of such words extremely offensive whether you call someone a "f***tard" or any other variation. You may say it's all legitimate, neat and tidy, but that is an easy out. I am sorry if you are offended but if you can look at my beautiful child and my wonderful brother and feel good about using such words, you have no soul.
Libtard n. Portmanteu of "liberal" and "retard". A liberal retard--a person who depends on public assistance for support, who is a leech on society, who breeds huge numbers of children he/she cannot support, who almost always votes for Democrats, and who votes for a living instead of working for one.
Btw, I have to add one more thing. Sorry, I forgot to add this before. I said liberal was a legitimate word and I said retard was a legitimate word. I never used the word 'tard' nor did I say that was a legitimate word, either.
I also said libtard was a combination of 2 words, not a word and a suffix. If you can find somewhere in your personal online dictionary where it says 'tard' is a suffix, please let me know.
So try to argue the proper points, will you? My time is valuable. I'd hate to have you be forced to make a fourth identity. You're going to get a complex, if you don't already have one. Have a Blessed day.
Okay, Bobette, I'll play. I don't know why you call your child retarded. I don't, I didn't, and I never would. You call 'tard' a legitimate word and yet 'libtard' is not. Retard has many meanings and you can't confiscate the word just for your own purposes - those purposes being to call your own child one - shameful. I don't know how you live with it.
And, btw, I never called anyone tard or libtard, so get over it.
Libtard is not tard, no matter which dictionary you choose to use or how you choose to close your eyes. It is derogatory, but not toward people with developmental disabilities:
libtard (plural libtards)
1.(US, slang, derogatory) A liberal, a progressive.
You may have a campaign to ban words, but that is an easy out. Eventually you will end up with your own language filled with single letters only. How wonderful communication will be for you then.
Now, back to those books you wrote...
'I don't need you to defend me, I do ok.' - SnS
Really? I suspect you have never handled a gun in your life. What is the first rule?
First Rule? "Don't talk about Fight Club."
I ain't your puppet, Baby. Go peddle that negativity elsewhere.
Peace & Love!
Besides, THAT's what you choose to "call" me on? I gave you TONS of other ammo in the reply I made to you a little while ago regarding my education & credentials .... keep up, it's not that tough.
'Paranoid much?' - SnS
Yeah, it sure looks like it. I'd suggest you spend a little quality time here (try to read and learn) and that may just be the ticket for you.
"That's what I thought. No knowledge whatsoever."
You just go on thinkin,' my little pigeon pie, it's adorable.
'Gun "rules?" Check the NRA website or .........anywhere.' - SnS
(Since you're adding to your post, I thought I'd respond) That's the whole point. You don't have to check the internet (as I'm sure you did to no avail). Every responsible gun owner knows it from day one. You liberals fear guns because you refuse to learn. Doesn't all that sand get stuck to the earwax?
'I'd urge anyone who wants to have legitimate discourse on ideology to check out some of the "mainstream media," as well as some of the "discussion groups" on liberal sites.' - SnS
You see, that's one place that you fell short. You just assume we don't know them, don't visit them, and just live in an echo chamber. It's why you fail in many observations. That's okay. We're still here to help you.
'Your hate-filled rants aside...' - SnS
Hmmm, and yet you call me Pukeman. There's no hatred in my statements, only pity. Try not to mistake sarcasm with hatred (just because someone has a differing view than you doesn't make it hate. If you believe so, then I'm not surprised you found a home at MediaMatters. I'm also not surprised in the massive number of flags you left behind. They don't work if people haven't violated the comments policy. They just cause the moderators to be overworked and a bit perturbed at you).
You wonder why people on this site insulted you with the liberal label? You were pegged from the first comment. If you had actually wanted to come in here for honest and open discussion, you could have - and would have found plenty of open discourse. We have people of all persuasions posting here. We don't all walk in lockstep, like those at MediaMatters do. You set the stage, and I'm surprised that you were surprised at the outcome.
'any idiot with an internet connection who can enter "Google" into their browser could answer most ANY of the questions you can pose, particularly "firearms etiquette."' - SnS
And yet you failed to do so. Wasn't it in Wikipedia? It was an honest question and whether or not you like it, I got an honest answer (albeit, between the lines and one you didn't want me to know).
Btw, editing your comments 1 day later after someone has already responded to you, when you think you have an answer and a clever response, is a bit disingenuous, don't you think?
At any rate, you are not lending any more info to my book on liberals, so I've gotten quite bored. See you later. Oh, wait, no I won't.
I'm still waiting for the titles to your two books. I'd really love to read them. But I suspect, like with everything else you said, it's just another story. Obama seems to live in that same fantasyland when writing his books (insert flag here, lol).
Forum won't allow me to "edit," so I'll "reply" to my own post .... I just wanted to add that BTW any idiot with an internet connection who can enter "Google" into their browser could answer most ANY of the questions you can pose, particularly "firearms etiquette." It's not a real big secret, any of us who've ever owned firearms know there is info everywhere.
I DO have a website you might find humorous .... created & orchestrated by an Alaskan & a veteran, I think he should "go on the road" as a social commentary comic. I find him brilliant: http://www.stonekettle.com/2011/06/if-constitution-was-written-today.html
Thanks to the Pukeman .... I believe it was you who turned me on to a couple of the other sites where people are interested in discussion (even when they don't agree), not just slapping each other on the back for putting "liberals" in their place.
Oh --- BTW--- (edit) I don't even know why I'm dignifying your obvious intellect baiting with a reply, but any idiot with an internet connection can Google the answer to any question (especially firearms agenda & information) you can ask.
I'd urge anyone who wants to have legitimate discourse on ideology to check out some of the "mainstream media," as well as some of the "discussion groups" on liberal sites. You've gotta know your enemy, if nothing else. Civilized exchange is what has made this country the greatest country in the world and I sincerely hope we start electing people with real experience, knowledge of history and the ability to work things out even when they disagree rather than eye doctors, TV personalities & recipients of nepotism. It only benefits all of us.
Your hate-filled rants aside, I've learned a lot from you .... good luck with your "new political party," (perused it, Constitution, seriously? You may read it, but I doubt you comprehend.
"Time and changes in the condition and constitution of society may require occasional and corresponding modifications." --Thomas Jefferson to Edward Livingston, 1825. Hope you find some country to test it ....just not this one ....with the resources & influence of the two current predominant parties, I'll be watching for you ... but I won't hold my breath.
Sarah Palin is still a Republican, unless she's changed her affiliation in the last few hrs, so even she is aware, thought they may pander to fringe elements, politicians who don't play ball with one or the other of the "big boys" doesn't have a chance.
For that, I give her a lot of credit. She's learned a lot since the GOP thrust her, unprepared, into the national spotlight & then treated her so shabbily.
That's what I thought. No knowledge whatsoever.
How is asking you a pertinent question about the safety of your children a negative response? I guess you better flag me again, then.
Edit: I suggest you try to keep up. I already responded to your post to me. Try not to look too foolish. It's Saturday.
Heck maybe she's going to get the groundwork going on starting a new party.
Most here started to despise the GOP for how they treated Palin, Gingrich... people we really wanted just to give us someone who was a good man but not really the first choice. But what could you do? You no longer consider yourself a republican but it's still the party of Lincoln and Reagan, so you vote "just one more time."
But that was forever ago. Lincoln and Reagan are long gone, but Palin is here now. Reading the breitbart story about "boomtown". Crony capitalism. She could flip everything upside down.
Rambling post but Palin never does anything "just because".
If she's going to get back into politics, she goes straight to the top, or not at all. She could be in the WH right now. Conservatives wanted her. RNC had different plans. Water under the bridge--but if she wants it, she gets another chance in 4 years. She would probably get, I don't know, maybe 99% of the conservative vote? Something like that?
Most of us got behind Romney eventually and meant it. With Romney it was "well, we need Obama out of there. Romney is much better." With Palin it's "Please please run for President, please. Please."
Sarah has never hesitated to give up the money for a different calling. She took pay cut as Mayor, resigned as Oil and Gas Commission when she saw corruption, resigned as Gov when she was driven into bankruptcy. Her and Todd were never wealthy when she did that. It had to be tight.
Palin did not resign because she was driven into bankruptcy. Public disclosure records show that two months before she resigned, Palin took a million dollar advance on her book deal. Plus she was commanding $100,000 per speech. She quit so that she could pursue the money.
" Public disclosure records show that two months before she resigned, Palin took a million dollar advance on her book deal."
To cover the debt she was incurring because of political haters and with no end in sight. What was she supposed to do, sell her house? She did what they didnt expect her to do. Gave up her TITLE and moved on. They thought they were destroying her, all they did was release her. Major backfire.
First of all, I agree that the ethics complaints were bogus. But that is politics.
Secondly, Palin proudly stated in her resignation speech that all of the ethics complaints had been resolved..... they were over.
Lastly, you are aware that the RNC paid over $250,000 of her legal bills, aren't you?
So Palin gets $1 million dollar advance on a reportedly $7 million book deal. She commands $100,000 per speech. How could she not afford her $250,000 legal bill?
BY THE WAY YOU OBVIOUSLY DO NOT READ !!! I SAID SHE GOT THE 1.25 MILLION !! I ALSO GAVE YOU THE CBS LINK YOU USED ON ME.
You do begrudge her for being rich, You begrudge everything about her. SHE WAS RUN OUT OF OFFICE and you have NO PROOF OTHERWISE, I GAVE YOU PROOF, but you would rather bash and trash her than actually dig for facts. Are you like this with everything, or if THE MSM says it, it has to be true. She is not a Quitter, and I provided you with the proof, you just chose to hate her. Also I would rather go to the people that KNOW HER BEST, you obviously don't listen to her, or to the people that speak for her.
I bet you even think Julianne Moore did a great job at Game Change.
You are missing the point. She never should have paid a PENNY. You dont Pay Off evil. Evil is evil. You fight it.
First of all, you are wrong.
Palin received a $1.25 million advance on her book while still in office. Who said so? Sarah Palin did in the public disclosure statement she filed with the State of Alaska.
Former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin reported that she has received at least $1.25 million for her hugely anticipated upcoming memoir "Going Rogue."
A disclosure statement released Tuesday discusses Palin's finances from Jan. 1 to July 27, when she resigned as Alaska governor. Palin says she received the money from publisher HarperCollins for the book.
Secondly, she was not run out of office because of her legal bills. When Palin quit, she said, "Every one - all 15 of the ethics complaints have been dismissed. We've won!"
So her legal troubles were over. She just received $1.25 million. She was getting $100,000 per speech. And thus had the means to pay her legal bills. AND THEN she quit.
BTW I don't begrudge her for getting rich.
The RNC paid $250,000 directly to Palin's lawyers in exchange for fundraising for them.
Of the $250,000 that was left Palin could pay out of her $7 million book deal or her $100,000 speech fee. (two and a half speeches and her legal bills are paid)
Get the Facts straight. You Palin Haters really have to get a life. At least when it comes to Obama we have fact based reasons to hate his policies. All of you hate a woman who did nothing wrong to anyone, except make sure the Alaska Checkbook was seen online for all Residents, Except get into the Corruption of the Oil Industry and made sure all Alaskans got paid a check every year for allowing them to drill in Alaska, and she decided the Life of her child was more important than killing a baby the Lord gave her.
First off, she didn't get her Book Deal till AFTER SHE LEFT THE GOVERNOR'S OFFICE.
Secondly She didn't get any of her Legal Bills paid for Until AFTER SHE LEFT THE GOVERNOR'S OFFICE - So What if she gets 100,000 dollars a speech. TEA PARTY ASSOCIATIONS Get Together pool their money, with Americans For Prosperity or Tea Party Express and that is how she is paid. Also, Anytime she has gone and spoken for anything to do with the MILITARY she has DONATED HER TIME AND GIVEN THE MONEY SHE WOULD HAVE MADE TO CHARITY. SHE HAS DONE MANY SPEECHES FOR LIFE AND DISABLED CHILDREN AND NEVER MADE A DIME.
I think it is a little hard for Liberals to accept that PEOPLE actually give from their heart and like to do things for others. It only makes a Liberal feel good when the Government does it for them - then they can say that is what I pay Taxes for, HMMM SCROOGE !!
The Republican National Committee is paying off SOME of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s sizable legal fees dating back to the 2008 presidential campaign in exchange for HER HELP raising money for the financially strapped RNC during the campaign season, The Washington Times has learned.
The Times obtained a copy of a check for $128,518.85 that was made out to Anchorage law firm Clapp, Peterson, Van Flein, Tiemessen & Thorsness, which Mrs. Palin hired after a string of ethics charges were lodged against her when she was Alaska’s governor and the GOP’s nominee for vice president.

On Her SPEAKING FEES IT IS 100,000 Dollars Dick Morris Charges 10,000, Judge Napolitano Charges 25,000, - BUT HEY THE RAPIST BILL CLINTON MADE 13.4 MILLION DOLLARS in 2011 and exceeded his previous year by 25%.
David Plouffe Obama's Own Adviser Made a 100,000 Dollar Speaking fee PAID TO HIM BY A FIRM WITH IRAN !!!
YEAH SARAH ALSO WROTE A BOOK, ACTUALLY SHE WROTE TWO BOOKS, she is working on a THIRD ABOUT FITNESS !!! SO WHAT. THE THING YOU CANNOT HANDLE IS SHE HAD THOUSANDS SHOW UP TO GET IT AUTOGRAPHED, and I HAPPEN TO HAVE ONE !!! SHE RECEIVED 1.25 MILLION DOLLARS AS A RETAINER, AND THEN SHE MADE MONEY OFF THE SALES, BUT DOESN'T EVERYONE WHO WRITES A BOOK !!!
SO BEFORE SPOUTING OFF ABOUT SARAH NEXT TIME GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT. THE ONLY THING YOU TRULY KNOW ABOUT HER, IS THAT HER DAUGHTER BRISTOL WAS PREGNANT WHEN SHE RAN FOR OFFICE AS VP WITH JOHN MCCAIN AND THAT SHE WAS A WOMAN WHO KEPT HER BABY. READ THIS AND WEEP.
the rnc could not legally pay for her personal lawsuits as governor. read the facts . during the 2008 campaign, way before any ethics complaints, palin received bills from her lawyers for the cost of vetting and background research. all that goes into selecting a vp. that it what she asked the rnc to reimburse since of course a middle class couple making less than 200k per year could never afford.
of course this only matters to you since it is palin. anyone else getting wealthy because of their chosen profession is fine Im sure
the money that the rnc paid was to cover the cost of her vetting and all the research and tax returns etc.. was sarah supposed to pay that? how in the world could sarah and todd( again, a middle class couple) come up with that mo ey. the rnc should have paid it! otherwise, the only people that can rise to the top politically will be the rich and crony connected.
oh gee, whats a mear $250k afterall. it was the principle. evil. no one should be financially punished because others disagree politically with them. then what decent middle class citizens would want that job.
ps. just this past month or so, 2 more ethics complaints were dismissed and in one case the judge made the lunatic complaintant pay sarahs legal fees. as it should have been all along
Have you wondered how long you would stay solvent when George Soros sends a jet full of attorneys to file a volley of lawsuits against you.
Then imagine that you even had the courage and fortitude to beat them all, and Soros then sends in his "mechanics" to set you and your family up on charges you can never beat.
Then imagine you are left with the choice of jail or death, vs resigning and taking a book deal.
Former Alaska Senator Ted Stevens Killed in Plane Crash
Nine people were aboard the plane, a single-engine DeHavilland DHC-3T capable of landing on water. Many of them had deep connections to government and Mr. Stevens’s long service in the Senate.
She wouldnt have had to resign if she weren't being financially destroyed. 2 months before she resigned she was in dire financial straits. $500,000 in debt with a combined income between her and Todd of less than $200,000 annually. Purposely driving a middle class couple with 5 kids, one disabled, into personal bankruptcy because you don't like her politics is evil. Case closed. She was wise to make sure that can never happen again.
