Not to worry. The voting machines can be fixed so that McCain/Palin wins. The voting machines were hacked in Volusia County FL in 2000. (Gore received -16,000 votes in a precinct with 600 registered voters.) They did it in Ohio in 2004, counting the Ohio votes on a computer in Tennessee that was running GOP software. Isn't it strange how the hacking never helps Democrats?

That group was a land grab group for the oil companies.
1. Claim the parcel of land as an Alaskan
2. Sell mineral rights to Big Oil (per bbl of course)

lol...I saw this and thought, wow, a possible secessionist in the party of Lincoln - the only thing worse would be to accuse her of something like stealing candy from babies.
Then something popped into mind that was either much funnier or much sadder. That she is actually intending to do something which, personally, I would call child abuse. She actually intends to be VP while having an infant, much less other young children, to care for. (that the family must care for)
Look, VP is not an 8 to 5 job. It's not as simple as hiring day care or missing the child for a few hours a day. For a mother of an infant to say, essentially, I intend to fob off this child / children on the rest of my family or nurses for years is, IMO, really horrible. Bonding at a very young age is important, and planning on only spending real time with the child(ren) after 4 years is really quite shocking. If these were all older teens, I wouldn't consider it an issue, but an infant? How could any parent consider such a thing? She can't exactly take a child, much less a special-needs child, into meetings with foreign leaders bouncing from 1 crisis to another.
Curious, that the media isn't talking about the problem inherent in throwing an infant (much less a special-needs infant) into the wind while she chases this position. A job LIKE THIS simply isn't suitable to raising a young child, unless, contrary to our best science, you think it's OK to leave the child without a mother (or father). (or substitute her older daughter for that role, either is a questionable decision)
This isn't just any job. Even being governor is an outrageous decision for ANY family with an infant, and I'm not just referring to being a mother, but the family as a whole. If you care about your children at all, then, IMO, you do not take on a position which can prevent you from even physically seeing the child for weeks on end.
Why is this "funnier" or sadder - from the "family values" party, this choice should have been a non-starter.
Weird choice, weirder that having the responsibility for an infant, and her being prepared to dump that responsibility (again, since she made the choice as governor, though Alaska government may simply not be as busy as I imagine), isn't being discussed as an issue.

Well, you needn't worry on that score because the baby is Bristol's, who will have plenty of time to bond with him.
You ought to be worrying about what kind of VP would do the outrageously pro-death things Palin does.

Sarah Palin was never a member of AIP. Her husband was, but not her. There are certainly murky questions arising about Sarah Palin, but it would be more credible to stick to legitimate news about her, not easily debunked rumors.

Is this too loopy, or is there finally an explanation of why Sarah Palin would wait more than 12 hours after her water broke in Texas in order to return to Alaska to deliver the baby? She wanted it to be a natural born Alaska citizen.
BTW, wasn't she "elected" governor, but the Republicans refused to certify the election when the results were challenged? As I remember, they successfully stonewalled.

The CIA has long planted people to mess up the credibility of dissent forums. Do you work for the CIA, Nunyabiz?

Yeah that's right "I am" the one that is with CIA LOL
No sorry to disappoint you there.
I haven't said a single thing different that the original poster has stated BTW. I fully agree with everything said because it is the only evidence we have to go on and that evidence says that Palin is an Extreme FAR Reich wing Nut bag.
She denies Global Warming.
Is a Creationist that wants Mythology taught in SCIENCE class in public schools.
She was OBVIOUSLY a member of AIP and wanted Alaska to secede from the Union.
She is vehemently anti abortion.
I don't need to hear anymore than that myself, the woman is insane.
She has absolutely ZERO credentials & experience to be the VP, let alone *shudder* should anything happen to McSame she would be the Empress.
This woman has no business even running the local McDonald's in Wasilla let alone the whole state and now a heart beat from running the whole country....
YOU however are the one with the loony Reich wing statements if anyone was here trying to "mess up the credibility of dissent forums" it would be somebody like YOU or your partner in insanity Damail.

"She denies Global Warming."
Yes, it is on the record that, contrary to the opinion of most scientists, she is skeptical about global warming.
"Is a Creationist that wants Mythology taught in SCIENCE class in public schools."
Yes, she wants fairy tales to be given the same weight as science.
"She was OBVIOUSLY a member of AIP and wanted Alaska to secede from the Union."
No, there is no proof that she was a member of the Alaska Independence Party. She gave a "shout out" to AIP that was obviously friendly towards them. Her husband was a member of AIP for a number of years, and if Dems applied the dirty Republican tactic of attacking the spouse for alleged misdeeds., they could use that against her.
"She is vehemently anti abortion"
Yes, she wants to legislate her own personal morality and deny women the right to make their own decisions.
Also, Sarah Palin has been in favor of cutting funding to assist pregnant teen girls.
There are plenty of areas to reveal Sarah Palin's questionable stances, her belief in Medieval Superstitions (ie creationism), her destructive policies against the environment.
But, thus far, there is no documentation that Sarah Palin was a member of AIP. If you produce any anywhere, I'll stand corrected. So far, you haven't.
PS You called be "Reich wing" based on nothing (thus making me wonder if you are a CIA/FBI hired agitator) just because I said it is better to stick to well-documented and established fact to have any credibility in journalism, (not something I necessarily always aim for in my blogs, BTW, LOL).

NOW the McSame campagne is angry and wants the media to stop questioning Palin's background.
Sorry Sarah, but when you are running for public office, your life is in a fish bowl and you had better get used to it.

I apologize for saying Reich wing, my mistake.
So then we agree on every issue except that she was a member of AIP?
Then I guess the leader of the local chapter of AIP in that video is simply lying then?
and why exactly would he do that considering that video was long before Palin was considered for McSames VP?
So what we KNOW as a fact that shows she was very likely a member of AIP is the fact that Todd Palin WAS/IS a member and worked as the secretary of AIP.
The leader of the local chapter clearly says she was on that video.
She is very clearly pro AIP in her video address to them.
Logic & reasoning says add 1+1 to equal she was a member of AIP.
I could not care less what some Reich wing blog/news or McSame campaign have to say about it because they are all well known liars that will say anything to cover up crimes. What they say means no more to me than a cricket chirping.
So the only thing I have to go is what was listed in this article and from people that have no reason what so ever to lie about it.
I will take their word for it until I see EVIDENCE that says otherwise.

Yes, apart from that AIP question, we seem to agree, overall.
(I appreciate your apology. I take back my suggestion that you're a CIA or FBI plant, not that I ever really thought you were. I do suspect that the more belligerent, irrational slogan-mill "liberals" such as those in marching in black masks may well be just that, but you never came across that way.)

George Bush has been in office for 7 1/2 years. The first six the economy was fine.
A little over one year ago:
1.Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;
2.regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;
3.The unemployment rate was 4.5%;
4.The Dow Jones hit a record high--$14,000+; and
4.American's were buying new cars, taking cruises, vacations overseas, and living large!
But American's wated 'CHANGE'! So, in 2006 they voted in a Democratic Congress and yes--we got 'CHANGE' all right. In the PAST YEAR:
1.Consumer confidence has plummeted;
2.Gasoline is now over $4.00 a gallon & climbing;
3.Unemployment is up to 5.5%(a 10% increase);
4.Americans have seen their home equity drop by $12 TRILLION DOLLARS has evaporated from our stocks, bonds and mutual funds investment and portfolios!
Yes, in 2006 america voted for CHANGE...and we sure as hell got it!
Remember the president has no control over any of these issues, only CONGRESS.
and what has CONGRESS DONE IN THE LAST TWO YEARS, FANNIE MAE AND FREDDIE MAX ARE CONTROL BY DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS WHO GOT SWEETHART DEALs including Senator Obama. (in the case of Barney Franks he really got the sweethart deal!!).
Now the Democtatic candidate for president claims he is going to REALLY give us CHANGE along with a democratic congress!!!
Just how much more CHANGE do you think we can stand?
