Jennifer,

Go back to any of my posts that I have written and copy where I said that Sarah Palin is qualified to be Vice President.

quote:
You didn’t think Palin had enough experience even to be Governor of Alaska, Alison, yet you’re ok with McSame wanting her to be the next VP?  Honestly, and no offense, but that makes absolutely no sense at all.



The following bullets are what I said, Jennifer:

-  She does not deserve to be deified as a political saint, but she does deserve to have issues discussed, not one picture that may, or may not, be flattering.


-  While I don't expect you to embrace Sarah Palen as Vice Presidential candidate, I would hope that you would put up a valid arguement as to why she should not be.


-  I am not asking that you vote for McCain.  I am not even stating that I am voting for McCain.  

-  Actually, Jennifer, I don't believe that I said that she would be a good VP.  I believe I said to not form bias based on appearance and where she is from.

-  I'll make up my mind the same as everyone else.  I'll filter information and try to make the most informed deciscion that I can.

-  Will she become VP - dunno.  Who am I voting for? What is my stance on Pro Choice?  What is my stance on censor?  Sorry - none of that is your business.  I didn't ask for your beliefs or opinions.  I simply asked you to base your arguements on fact and what you know.

-  Like the Governor or not; vote for McCain or not - I am not overly concerned - but is the fact that she hunts for sport an issue?  Is her hair an issue?  Don't demean her before she has a chance.  There's plenty of time for that - let's wait and see what she says.  She'll put her foot in her mouth, and give everyone lots of opportunites to belittle her.  She's human.  No point in jumping the gun!

If people don't like her politically - great.  Let's remember that she has achieved a lot.  She hasn't made it this far because she is stupid.  

-  This is an exciting time.  I hope people do become angry, amazed, upset, happy, and whatever emotions it takes to get them to the polls and express their opinions through the election process.

-  You know, I believe in the right to choose which candidate is right.  I believe that Palin has a lot to learn - and might not even be the right one to be on the VP ticket.  But, the fact that she is there does not mean that she doesn't deserve a chance.  

-  Vote for McCain if you want.  Vote for Obama.  If you don't like those on the VP tickest -- gee, too bad.  I don't recall them asking you - or me - or Balladeer - or anyone.  It's part of the process, darlin'.  It's called freedom of choice.

-  She's human and whether I vote for McCain or Obama, I respect her for what she has done in Alaska and I respect her for accepting to be on the Republican ticket.  She won't change my vote, but I respect her.


McCain made his choice, I don't recall him asking me.  Maybe I need to check my email again.  I might have missed his note asking me for permission to select his running mate.

Dear Alison,

          I've been off line for a few days, writing etc.  I did check out your references and I thank you for them.  Balladeer thinks that looking up my own references is enough and pokes fun at me for asking, but if somebody has a different point of view than you do, they may have some ideas about resources that wouldn't cross your mind.  It's helpful to ask.  I saw some articles on Governor Palin's daughter's troubles, and some stuff about the Alaska Independence Party and a scandal about trying to fire somebody who'd divorced her sister and the legislature trying to get to the bottom of that.  I thought her willingness to raise a kid with Down's Syndrome was a nice thing, but having world with Down's Syndrome folks and folks with developmental disabilities I found myself in a very mixed place about that.  It takes somebody with a large amount of free time or a lot of money to purchase help from outside caregivers to afford to raise a Down's Syndrome person and take care of them for life.  I think Governor Palin is fortunate to have the money to do so, but I wonder what her position is for people who don't have the money and who need to work to help support other children.  She's impressive in some ways here, don't get me wrong, but is taking a point of view that so many of his constituents couldn't afford to take as easily as she could.  I'm glad Obama said he thought folks should shut up about about candidates kids.  It'd be nice if everybody would take the advice.  I thank you once again for the references.  I'm glad to see more information about Governor Palin coming out in the press now, too.  More information is better for everyone.  Thanks for being understanding.

     Dear Mike, I'm still engaged on our research project.  I'm actually talking to people on the street.  I'm a bit agoraphobic.  The project gets me out of the house and gets me talking to folks I don't usually talk to, including a bunch of executives at a brokerage house..

     What's this stuff you're talking about with Grinch?  It sounds as though you're misrepresenting civil disobedience, a fine old democratic and American tradition, attempting to make it sound immoral and unamerican by mischaracterizing it.   If somebody vandalizes property or trespasses, they are breaking a law and they are subject to the penalties of the law.  That's pretty basic.  If you dump somebody else's tea in the harbor, you're liable for punishment for those acts, even if you do it for political protest.

     It's called civil disobedience because it is a conscious breaking of the law with full knowledge of the consequences, including possible imprisonment and fine because you have made a conscious choice that it is the appropriate course of action to do so, that it underlines the injustice of something for you to put yourself on the line in this way.

     My personal belief is that it works best with passive resistance, not moving from the lunch counter until you are either served or arrested, as opposed to actively doing something to damage property of put the lives of other in danger.  I come from the tradition of the civil rights movement, and I feel happiest with that.  I think it has the greatest force of moral suasion behind it, and the people who are in charge of enforcing unjust laws become progressively less happy doing so the redder their hands are stained.  At least one like to think so.

     But if there is a law broken, it is always the responsibility of the authorities to enforce the law.  The more outlandish the law, however, the more foolish the authority looks before the public.  Authority despises being made to look stupid, and the more so, when the positions it takes are more obviously bizarre, as in the situation of the Salt Tax in India, where a man living next to the ocean had to pay outrageous prices to buy salt from a government monopoly that he could evaporate for almost nothing from the sea beside him.  

    I say to Balladeer, the police should arrest away every time the law is broken.  And then they should be prepared for the reaction for the public as to how they did it and the justice of their behavior.  If they dislike the way they are treated by the press and the public, it's only natural they would wish to blame anybody but themselves.  Police make fun of criminals when criminals indulge in this behavior, blaming everybody but themselves; it's no less transparent when police indulge themselves in the same sort of thing.  But it would seem that it would be more effective to assume that they themselves had something to do with the criticism they get for over-use of force.  At least that way, they can see themselves as having some control of the result, the criticism that comes to them from press, public and police administration alike.

     At least that's what seems reasonable to me.

Sincerely, Bob K

I don't think you wasted your time Alison - it was good to hear the Alaskan view.  I barely knew Alaska existed as a habitable place till now, and I thank you for spending time here explaining your views.

And Mike:
quote:
Don't worry, Jennifer. You're not alone. On Good Morning America this morning they had a panel discussing Palin's daughter's baby and the question of whether or not Palin could be an effective VP while raising a child with Downe's Syndrome

That's a bit perverse imo.  The discussion should be about whether Palin can be an effective mother to such a child while being VP.  From personal experience of mothers working alongside me in senior positions in British business and finance I'd say that the answer is unquestionably, "no".  But then I suppose it depends on what you think a mother should be.
..........

This morning on one of the UK's foremost radio news programme Radio 4's "Today" they actually speculated on whether Palin would be able to continue as the candidate!  Everything depends on her speech apparently!

“Perhaps I'm focusing on an irrelevant issue, but the presence, or non-presence, of Johnston on the stage tonight strikes me as important.  It's one thing for delegates to be understanding and compassionate about the fix these two teenagers have gotten themselves into.  It's another to actually celebrate it.  And, given what we've learned in the last few days, if Johnston is up on stage with his girlfriend and the Palin family, and Republicans are wildly cheering, it will certainly look like they are celebrating this situation.

I don't usually engage in these scenarios, but I'll do it here.  If the Obamas had a 17 year-old daughter who was unmarried and pregnant by a tough-talking black kid, my guess is if that they all appeared onstage at a Democratic convention and the delegates were cheering wildly, a number of conservatives might be discussing the issue of dysfunctional black families. “

This on National Review . . .


It’s not going to go away.  Instead it will distract critical attention from where it belongs:
on Obama.   Palin and McCain can’t miss that.

PS

“Bristol will marry her boyfriend Levi - his MySpace page, littered with expletives, has been removed from the website . . .

The Democrats' senatorial duo of Barack Obama and Joe Biden suddenly begin to appear quite staid.”

So much for not setting the candidates children up for public scrutiny. McCain and Palin ought to be ashamed.

Where would the outrage be if they were already married, or if they were not pregnant? Would there be a backlash against Gov. Palin for bringing him there? Is he a member of the family because the teo of them are engaged, or is he simply a boyfriend that got a little big for himself?

Joe Biden's youngest is a daughter... suppose she and her boyfriend were to appear on stage next to him while she was 5 moinths pregnant? Is it an outrage then, because she is over the age of majority... even though she is still unmarried?

Pray, tell us where the line is for us being happy that Gov. Palin brought her family to share the moment with her?

Was it just last week that the Palins said, "We ask the media, respect our daughter and Levi's privacy ..."?

Well Ringo, maybe this is just another of those weird American things that I don't get, but I think most rational people who wanted to keep their kids out of the limelight would not wish to share them on a stage in front of a few thousand and a TV audience of god knows what!

I feel for Palin if she is simply bowing to the inevitable and already subjugating her instincts as a mother to the insatiate need of today's rampantly inquisitive media and public, and thereby enhancing her political fortunes.

Another point I don't think anyone has brought up, Sarah Palin lied to her children about where they were going. They were told they were going off to celebrate their parents' anniversary, something like that. Bristol was given no choice about whether or not she wanted to be in the limelight. I think that's reprehensible. In my book, Palin is a very selfish, shallow, domineering person and a lousy mother.

Ringo,

Check out the u-tube site; the boy is on record
from his earlier perspective as being in a “relationship”
and not wanting children.   It’s like something
out of HeeHaw.

Actually, MB, compared to Palin, Bush is starting to look pretty good.

"Palin has an even firmer anti-abortion stance: She would require rape and incest victims to carry their pregnancies to term."

Jennifer,

Please understand the difference between us.
You probably want McCain to lose,
I want him to win.   Given that, to my purpose
I think Palin has quickly proved a mistake
and should be corrected immediately by her withdrawing.

In my book, Palin is a very selfish, shallow, domineering person and a lousy mother.

As a professional entertainer, I have- on more than one occasion- been in the spotlight, and on tv,and the radio, and all the trimmings. I take my kids into consideration with everything I do; however, I do NOT allow them to decide the course of action I am taking. If Bristol truly wanted to remain OUT of the spotlight, I am sure she could very easily say "Mom. I do not wish to be in the spotlight" and all would be forgiven. My kids have been involved in various public things I have been involved in, and have been not involved, as they chose.
As for keeping the true nature of their missin a secret, I am almost POSITIVE that it was her call, as she is prone to lying about her kids about every little thing. I know for a fact that the Campaign said nothing about it.

You can positively make this presumption on ONE incident of which you have knowledge? I uinderstand it is simply your opinion, which you are certainly entitled to. One small question, though... with all of the scrutiny that she is going through, why is this not public information? Why has it not come to light that she is a domaneering, selfish, and lousy mother? The fact that her husband got beered up one night 22 years ago was splashed, yet her being an unfit mother, somewhow, escaped Jan Winter's attention.

What would you attempt to do...if you knew you could not fail?.

I don't think you're being realistic about the relationship between a 17 yr old girl and a mother who compares herself to a pit bull and who has just been appointed prospective VP.  Anyway what about Trig?  Anyone ask him?

....

And will someone (other than JM ) please tell me once and for all:

Does she or doesn't she support aerial wolf hunting?

Ringo, it has come to light, it is public information. Turn off the telly and start reading. There's a lot more coming, just the tip of the iceberg so far.

Yep, Huan, I understand we're on different sides of the fence and that's ok, I respect your opinion even if I don't always agree with you.  

Selecting a running mate is perhaps the most important decision a presidential candidate, not a President, a presidential candidate has to make. The way I see it is that by selecting Palin, McCain has shown he's far too implusive and seriously lacking in judgment. Not the kind of guy I want to vote for.

If his goal was to try and attract disgruntled Hillary supporters by selecting a woman, there are at least three I can think of off hand far more experienced than Palin who come with a lot less baggage and I by baggage I don't mean her husband and children, I mean her record and what she stands for.

I think McCain made a terrible choice, not only for the country but for his party. I don't want a man who makes bad choices running the country or having access to the red button.

     My choice would be Olympia Snow, not that anybody asked me.  She's been a long time Republican who's actually been the Maverick that McCain has gotten the reputation for being,  She's respected on both sides of the aisle.  She's got a record that shows she's got some solid integrity and which doesn't pander to either the right or left wings in American politics and, if you wanted a woman for a Vice-Presidential candidate from the Republicans that would actually draw the Hillary supporters she'd probably be it.  She's a decent woman with a decent head on her shoulders.  Even as a hard core left wing Democrat, I respect her.  Thank goodness she's not even under consideration!  I say that as a Democrat.

     As an American, I think the Republicans are probably putting the far right wing of their party ahead of the good of the country here.  But they probably don't trust their own constituency to support her.  Huan Yi, if you want McCain to win—and you know I don't, but you should also know that I've always respected your patriotism—I'd be interested in knowing what you think of somebody like Olympia Snow.  

     And anybody else, by the way.

Curiously yours, Bob K.

It sounds as though you're misrepresenting civil disobedience, a fine old democratic and American tradition, attempting to make it sound immoral and unamerican by mischaracterizing it.   If somebody vandalizes property or trespasses, they are breaking a law and they are subject to the penalties of the law.  That's pretty basic.  If you dump somebody else's tea in the harbor, you're liable for punishment for those acts, even if you do it for political protest.

I can't comment on or even attempt to understand how things sound to you, Bob. I made the statement that protesters at the RNC were vandalizing, slashing tires and breaking windows, events that did not happen at the DNC. That's it. I can't imagine anyone not understanding that or not agreeing that it is wrong....period. Grinch decided to bring up the Boston Tea Party which happened a few hundred years ago as some sort of justification for it. Bull. They are criminal actions and, if some of you can't admit that (not you because you agree) then that's a shame. Were the actions of the people involved in the Boston Tea Party criminals? Of course they were and England came after them....so what? We don't need a history lesson to acknowledge that those type of actions are wrong...at least most of us don't.

Looking at the footage of the protesters and their actions there, seeing the unprecedented personal attacks conducted by the liberal press and news agencies simply reinforces the fact that Democrats are a  barbaric, mean-spirited, vile group interested in nothing more than destroying anything that could be a challenge to them. They are interested in power, nothing more, and if people or the country suffers because of their actions, that's too bad. Some of the comments on these threads reinforce that fact. I believe that every decent Democrat should be ashamed of their party right now and i believe that many are, whether they will admit it or not.

as far as  tirades about the daughter's finacee being in the spotlight, I feel fairly certain that, if he were kept out of the spotlight, someone who thinks like posters here would simply attack from that angle, something like....

Well, how about that? The hockey mom says she is proud of her daughter and accepts everything and yet they hide the boy who impregnated the 17 year old!! Guess he's good enough to seduce the daughter but not good enough to be seen in public with her! Maybe they have him hidden away in a closet or something? It's despicable that they will allow the pregnant daughter to be there but not the boy who is going to marry and support her! What kind of supporting mother is that, I ask you!?!?!

It's probably not word for word but my guess is that it would be close to what someone determined to attack her would do.

Why did you make the statement about RNC protesters, Balladeer, it really doesn't seem to belong in this thread. Were you trying to change the focus away from the fact that McCain made just about the worst possible choice for running mate in the history of American politics?

What is out of line about it? You're saying that if they decided to not to have the boy there you would applaud it or are you saying you would not use the cutting sarcasm...which would be a hard sell, after the things you have said in this thread.
