She "should" SHUT UP & GET OFF THE STAGE
Maybe the white house should stop responding to everything she says, after all, she`s just a private citizen!
All you big government haters ought to check out what's happening in Colorado Springs. They refused to pay taxes to keep up their infrastructure, and they have a minimum police presence, no garbage pick up, etc. If government is reduced to the extent the conservative crowd wants, we will become a third world nation (actually, their spending on war and refusing to spend on their own country for the last eight years has pretty much done that.) I visited Russia before and after the iron curtain fell and I have witnessed first hand how investing your nation's wealth and youth into war reduces a country into a dismal state. Here's an idea: why don't you amateur pundits allow scientists to take care of science, economists to take care of the economy, and learn about what is actually happening from someone other than political hacks before you vote next time? A democracy is not for ignorant sissies.
assuming that economists should take care of the economy is a rather foolish statement.
First off, Economists don't all agree. Austrian economists vs. Chicago School vs. Keynesian vs whatever will all give different answers.
Second, Economists shouldn't be in charge of anything - business owners and entrepreneurs are the ones in charge of the economy - economists study the economy, the people in the economy run it.
Third, all the info I can find on The Colorado Tax Cuts just say that they lowered the taxes, cuts are being made widespread, but nothing relating to it causing problems, and nothing relating to the private sector picking up the slack.
I'm sure they'll do what they want- no need to insult 'em
Have you ever been to Colorado Springs? Its a beautiful and peaceful place. I have seen no problems caused by their low taxes.
I agree with you. Sarah Palin has done everything but Govern. She dropped out of office over something that any other person in our government would have passed of as unimportant.
She is nothing more than a publicity hound. And, I wish she would just go away. but we all know that isn't going to happen.
sarah dropped out of office because she cares for the people of alaska. she did not want to have them pay for legal bills mounting up by false accusations brought on by the left. over 1/2 a million bucks of legal fees she paid out of her pocket because people lied about her. she also could not do her job as governor while spending so much time in court. no private citizen i can recall has scared the left so much as this one little lady.
i truly hope palin/rice 2012 becomes reality.
If she promises to "care" as much for us in the lower 48 as she does for Alaskans, I could possibly get drunk enough to vote for her.
She is frightening to the same degree that Bozo, Krusty, Nellibelle, and other assorted clowns are frightening.
Everyone should shut up and get off the stage.
The Government is completely shut down right now due to snow. It's a nice break from all the fighting.
Neither side is doing anything that helps anyone.
And all the Political Pandering from both sides does nothing to help Americans.
Nothing will be fixed until both sides start tackling the debt issues.
I'm an independant. I vote for whomever I think is the best candidate.
The reality is that the Debt in the United States is past the equilibrium point.
Until people recognize that our monetary system is being shored up by lies there can be no recovery.
And Palin is not an elected official so what she says means nothing. Her opinions are as valid as anyone elses from any walk of public life.
It makes no more sense to attack her for her views than to Attack Howard Sterns for his.
There is no issue here at all.
Free Speech applies to all. Whether you like them or not.
Absolutely agree. If she is able to spout nonsense to be gobbled up by a room full of morons and make 100K in the process, I say more power to her.
A room full of morons? She doesn't give speeches to Democrats.
hehehe, ATexan your new avatar is nice, I like your hair, big wavy curly
Free speech may apply to all, but a democracy thrives on free speech motived and directed by a good mind, sadly lacking in the conservative camp.
Forum tired and ready to sleep soon
Weather good there?
God I miss Sugarland
it's cool I'll be moving back but outside of Houston somewhere aside from Fort Ben County - I was arrested there - no white people - what a ride
Forum tired, I get that way every once in a while. Take a few days off and you'll get over it, its better if those days off are of your choosing.
Come on back to Texas, the more the merrier!
I always defer to celebrities when I want to know how to think about our govt. Next time I want to know what to think about Obama I'll see what Neil Diamond or Petula Clark say
Who is defering? I have my views of palin, which I have shared abundantly.......... However, when it comes to John Cleese, his opinion I highly value....
He is a human first........a thinking mind...that is the prerequisite needed..
Who cares what he thinks. His opinion is no more important than anyone else's. Just because he's John Cleese and famous doesn't make him an expert on anything. If you had put up a link to a video of an average person that agreed with you and said the same things as in this video everybody would say the same - so what?
Well, if you project that I agree with Cleese based off his celebrity that is your own thing........I respect the man's mind.....he knows politics, he knows society......having watched Monty Python most of my life I appreciate the perspective of the man.......
Also........for a stage performer........which is all Palin is...a poor one at that........I like the view of one critiquing the other....
John Q. Public doesn't know much about this........
Hey, I like Cleese too. But I could give a rat's ass what anyone who's "famous" thinks, even if I agree with them. Their celebrity automatically makes them suspicious, IMHO.
"John Q. Public doesn't know much about this........"
But you do, right?
Ah, Monty Python...now THERE'S a compilation of the wisdom of the ages!
I do rather like the continuing viewpoint among those who disapprove of Mrs. Palin. You know, that she's, uh, mm, not got much goin' on? Underestimating her skills, insights, dedications, and depth of qualification in many areas relating to leading--whether a town, a state, or a nation--that's a good thing.
Sort of like Sonny Liston underestimated Muhammad Ali, clear back when he was still Cassius Clay.
Wow, you have taken an interesting tack in terms of representing yourself here.....I don't understand the defensiveness in your tone........
My views are my own....and yours will not affect them...it is as simple as that..
Exercising your futility today?
No need to get sarcastic. . .
I'm sorry I came across as defensive, that was not my intention. As for affecting your views, I wouldn't dream of attempting to do so
Thanks for the clarification.
Here's some fun....though slightly off topic...
Ann Couter said it best, she said Obama taunts about the jobs he created while “She’s created at least 11 jobs fact-checking at the AP just for the Palin autobiography."
Alaska is unique in that any citizen can file an ethics complaint. I have no doubt that some of those claims are entirely fraudulent and based upon either political or personal vendettas. Alaska is full of anti-social misfits. It's why they go there!
However, to say that ex-Gov. Palin's time and money would be spent answering specious claims of ethical misconduct, and therefore 'forcing' her out of office, is just plain wrong. The governor does not have to personally respond, nor does she have to appear in court unless a review board finds merit in the accusations.
Sarah Palin isn't too bright and she isn't quite moral, but she knows a lucrative opportunity when it arrives. She has some star power in certain circles and there is no reason she should ever let that go to waste. America is not a land of substance, but of celebrity. Even if she had half a brain, no one would notice.
I am an atheist who preaches birth control and sexual awareness and, would you believe, all of my grandchildren have been born in wedlock. My wife and I are raising a special needs child (my nephew) and have to wonder how Sarah Palin, while claiming to be raising Trig, is every day somewhere else giving a speech or interview. My nephew keeps us close to home and very busy.

Steve Schmidt, former campaign strategist for John McCain, said that picking Sarah Palin for the Republicans' 2012 presidential nominee would lead to a catastrophic loss. Thoughts?

These supporters of Sarah Palin must know something I don't know, if so please enlighten me. Otherwise all I have seen from this women is incompetence. In my opinion, this women might be the most unqualified presidential hopeful in the history of the United States of America. We...
