I’m a concerned mother, wife, daughter, grand-daughter, and future grand-mother.
Sarah Palin has an issue with the Dinosaurs and it has something to do with her RELIGION. A lot of her views have something to do with her religion, and I am a true believer of keeping church out of government.
I’m not saying that we shouldn’t say the Pledge…because we should. It stands for the foundation of our Nation.
I’m not saying that our government shouldn’t observe Religious Holidays…because we should…All Religions…
And I’m not saying that our schools (government run) shouldn’t teach creationism along with evolution…because we should (as Alternative Thoughts…the same with fundamentals of ALL religions…including Mormons, Christians, Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Atheists, etc…it just gives us multiple view points…
I just believe that Religion needs to steer clear regarding RIGHTS and not mix them with beliefs.
I’m personally not particularly clear (with Googling) when the dinosaurs existed, but I’m pretty certain it was more than 6,000 years ago. I’m also a Catholic. Practicing, but the Pope wouldn’t really agree with my views.
I also want to credit Tina Fey with the spot on characterization on Mrs. Palin. The Bush Doctrine? That was like the final question at the Mrs. America Beauty Pageant and Mrs. Sarah Palin failed miserably. We gave a lot of cow dung to the poor girl from South Carolina, Caitlin Upton, that blundered the map question…I personally associate Mrs. Sarah Palin’s response to the Bush Doctrine to the following…and I quote Miss Upton…
“I personally believe that us Americans
are unable to do so because Osama.
People out there
in our nation
don’t have that,
And I believe that our education
like such as south Africa and
such as the Iraq.
everywhere “such as”.
And I believe our education
should help the US
should help the south Africa
and the Iraq
and the Asian countries
so we can build up
And Now Mrs. Palin on the Bush Doctrine…
GIBSON: Do you agree with the Bush doctrine?
PALIN: In what respect, Charlie?
GIBSON: The Bush — well, what do you — what do you interpret it to be?
PALIN: His world view.
GIBSON: No, the Bush doctrine, enunciated September 2002, before the Iraq war. PALIN: I believe that what President Bush has attempted to do is rid this world of Islamic extremism, terrorists who are hell bent on destroying our nation. There have been blunders along the way, though. There have been mistakes made. And with new leadership, and that’s the beauty of American elections, of course, and democracy, is with new leadership comes opportunity to do things better.
GIBSON: The Bush doctrine, as I understand it, is that we have the right of anticipatory self-defense, that we have the right to a preemptive strike against any other country that we think is going to attack us. Do you agree with that?
PALIN: Charlie, if there is legitimate and enough intelligence that tells us that a strike is imminent against American people, we have every right to defend our country. In fact, the president has the obligation, the duty to defend.
In simple terms, The Bush Doctrine is meant to protect the United states in a preemptive war…a strike…to protect this country from harm and terrorist attacks. What I understand from my own interpretation of the poetry reading is that Mrs. Palin thinks that we’re riding the world of Islamic extremists. My concern here is….what is the difference between Islamic Extremists and Christian Extremists and Jewish Extremists and Mormon Extremists and Buddhist Extremists and Catholic Extremists. What Mrs. Sarah Palin should have said is that the Bush Doctrine is protecting our country from whack jobs and terrorists and that we have a right to protect ourselves…so that got me thinking….
Republicans believe in minimal government involvement…”light” government.
The Republican Party won’t put a “Pro-Choice” candidate on their ballot because of the religious extremists holding on to their ticket and paying the bills. (And from an economic viewpoint, what are they really getting out of that one?)
Sarah Palin is an Evangelical Christian…wow…not that I really understand why all of these Christian religions divert from Catholicism-besides that fact that some short guy that is dead wanted a new wife…and thought that he could create his own church to do it.
Terrorists are typically extremist religious folks and most likely don’t like Women, or give them any credit for their existence…(Just ask my neighbor and his ten paces behind wife…and BTW, the signs are STILL UP, although I’ve become numb to the anger).
I’m disappointed that Sarah Palin didn’t know better than to use one of her kids names as the password on her Yahoo! account…duh! Willow, Piper…TrigVan? It’s disgusting. Mr. R’s old company broke into his Google account and had that info, and it’s just so gross – but really, Sarah…you’re going for the big button clearance. Certainly you should have a password that is more complicated!
You know, I stopped my brilliant career for my family, and we’re not in crisis. Sometime you lay low when you’ve got ‘issues’. Timing is everything.
I’m disappointed that Sarah Palin is under investigation for the Police Dude’s firing…and yes, if he screwed over my sister, I’d do that same thing…
I’m disappointed that the Republican Party couldn’t find SOMEONE else…someone that didn’t have so much dirty laundry out there.
It’s not about experience. It’s not about her being the first Republican VP candidate that’s a woman (yeah! Best move by McCain yet), I’ll give it to her, she’s my idol. I’d love to be a governor in eight years after paying my dues as a dutiful wife and mother…start as the Mayor of Suburbia…perfect. I’m proud of John McCain for having the brilliance to get her on his resurrected ticket. I’m just disappointed.
Disappointed in the economy. Disappointed in the Presidential candidates.
Disappointed that the Republican VP candidate doesn’t have the strength of her intelligence to believe that the dinosaurs were around 200 million years ago. Sarah Palin is off by 199,994,000 years.
I was fired up when I heard that McCain had put a woman on the ticket. Now I feel that I’m back to the tallest midget contest. What’s the point?
BTW, the OMAMA ads below…I have NO control over that, although if you Click them, I’ll get paid…and AIG will take 40%…
