Comments on: Palin Strikes Back http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/02/04/palin-strikes-back/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: TC http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/02/04/palin-strikes-back/comment-page-1/#comment-388759 Sat, 07 Feb 2009 03:18:17 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=15624#comment-388759 Yes, I got a tax break and I’m not even rich (whatever the definition of rich is).

It isn’t just a middle of road issue. I cannot support the progressive liberal democratic agenda, or just democratic agenda. It is all about social issues for me and I have serious problems with what democrats, on the whole, believe in. Not talking economy, not talking foreign affairs right now. Although I have opinions there too, like everyone else.

Like her or not, Sarah Palin kept her downs syndrome baby rather than abort it. If you don’t agree with her on anything else, she should be commended and admired for that one thing alone.

Oh sure, Sarah Palin isn’t perfect, no one is, but she supports values I believe in. It doesn’t matter to me if she runs for president or not. I have others who are more appealing as presidential prospects, so I have no dog in this fight about her qualifications. Even though I believe she could do as well as Obama, which currently wouldn’t require a very high bar.

Palin is a decent and good person who also happens to be ambitious. It is obvious her family is close and all in all, they are doing as well as any other family in America. If anyone can say they have a perfect family, then say so now. Otherwise, stop throwing stones at her.

As for all the fuss about the hunting issues. All that was happening in Alaska long before she became governor. Not only that, unless you live in Alaska, you don’t understand the culture in Alaska. Look within your own state, I am sure there is plenty to criticize, but your governor isn’t on the media hot seat because like she is becuase she is a threat to the democrats. So stop the attacks on her if you think she is so dumb and stupid. You don’t keep giving attention to something that isn’t a threat to you.

With out revealing my last name I’ll tell you that it is English/Irish in background. Listen man I don’t know if this stimulus package is going to work or not if I did I’d be in government instead of a carpenter. What I do know is that the direction we have been going in hasn’t worked, the details of this new plan haven’t even been worked out and voted on yet so I think we all should take a deep breath and see what happens. Obama is doing what he thinks is best for the country it happens to be different from the neo-con approach that Bush took.
The hunting thing, honestly I’ve always hunted birds I’ve had deer permits and even had one in my scope but couldn’t pull the trigger but at the same time I recognize the need to manage the deer herd. I’m opposed to things like bear baiting and steel traps and I’m not on those hang a head on the wall types it’s just a tradition that I grew up around. I am from Maine after all and I think there are more guns in the state than people. I don’t have a problem with that either.
We have suffered a huge divide in this country and it is due to extremes in both parties, the reality is that except for a few hot button issues most of us are in the middle. I think we all want a clean environment, to get off foreign oil, and be able to save some money for our kids. What I’d like to see is the far right and left politicians get their collective @#%$ together and work out real solutions. No carbon trading (it’s a joke) no clean coal (there is no such thing) and a tax code that works for everybody and doesn’t favor the rich and corporate America, I know I didn’t get a tax break under Bush, did you?

When will you get it that everyone who disagrees with you doesn’t fit some liberal profile that you have in your head? You know very little about me or my so called agenda. Palin defends this practice and I, as a sportsman, happen to think it’s wrong. End of story. Stop making SP out to be victim, if she did us a favor and faded away as she should we wouldn’t see these things in the news. She’s not a viable candidate for 2012 and the GOP knows it, who has the fixation more than those who support her candidacy?

She is the paragon of political hype and rhetoric that has devoled BOTH parties over the course of American history.

On to the topic: Nature knows how to balance itself, whether with starvation, famine, disease, the population of species in an area cannot overcome this natural mechanism; humans can because of technology, but we’ll see how long that can protect us. As far as problems with wildlife entering cities, it is the fault of the cities. If Colorado Springs, or Denver, or wherever, had not expanded into the mountains and parks, there would be much less conflict. Nearly all modern environmental problems boil down to one thing HUMAN OVERPOPULATION.

So, they find issue after issue after negative story and on and on and report it front and center for all to see. They are digging deep and enlisting celebrities in their cause.

Interesting how they use the “failed” Republican vice presidential nominee. One thing is for certain (and I don’t really care either way) is that she is a force to be reckon with and the liberals are going after her to try to eliminate her as a threat. The thing about it is, when that happens, it usually only strenthens their appeal.

Better to just leave her alone, if everyone thinks she is just stupid and not a factor. Then people would forget about her. It is actually funny to watch.

When is she going to figure out Republicans and Democrats won’t consider her with a 10-foot pole? Rather than waste her time trying to defend killing wildlife not allowed to hide or defend themselves, she needs to get her dropout daughter and daughter’s lover back in high school so they can support their child.

How Gov. Palin is involved is beyond me and she does not, or ever has shot any wolf, so at least get the facts straight. Now I live in a state that has deer hunting, should you notify every state and blame the Govs. of those states, no I just think it is all the paid obots who write these little posts, how much they pay you might be in jeopardy because of pay caps. Socialism is just around the corner, and Iran is shooting of missile’s and North Korea is getting ready to fire one off that can reach the USA, thanks for voting for someone who will get us blown up! And you worry about wolves?
