    Big deal. She seemed to understand who was who at the beginning of the tape and just misspoke. I`ve done the exact same thing when talking about North & South Korea. I still think she`s a dumbass though.

    but she lives in Alaska, and have you even looked at a map? Alaska is so close to Russia! She must be great with diplomacy, or else the Russians would have taken Alaska from us!!!!

    Seriously though, if she somehow wins the 2012 election; I`m moving to Canada.

    Sarah Palin is an idiot.

    First Africa is a country, then we`re allies with North Korea. I also love how she doesn`t say one thing that she would do to hadle the situation, she just bad mouths our president by saying that she doesn`t think his sanctions will be "strong enough"! I would have loved for the interveiwer to ask her if she even knew what the president planned on doing before she critized his plan! She is completely clueless!!

    Absolutely no need to worry about Sarah Palin ever becoming President. Two-thirds of registered voters in a recent poll say she`s unqualified for the job, and more than half continue to rate her unfavorably. She`s popular only among a very small minority of the electorate. The rest of see her for exactly what she is, and we won`t vote for her under any circumstances.

    Oh now c`mon Davy, whilst the combined IQ of all Americans is at least 1, there isn`t much chance of it happening. Anyway, here in Australia we recently had a middleaged cougar Ginger backstab the PM and take over his job, and has Australia suffered from it?

    Uh well yes it has, but I`m sure that`s just coincidence.

    And what American accent would that be? New England, or would it be New York which then gets more subdivided. How about Southeast such as Bama or how about Southwest. Then there is Hawaii with Hawaiian or Japanese, or Chinese or Pidgin etc....

    Let`s start on the other America`s like Puerto Rican or Mexican or Honduran. Oh but wait we have Americans up North such as French Canadian to which there cousins in the south called Creoles in Louisiana speak and little Inuit to mix in also. Take off eh?

    @SvampeBob - Yes, it is a big deal. North Korea has a history of atrocious crimes against the South Koreans, and her saying North Korea not once, but TWICE as our "allies," even if by accident, can be very damaging in the future, ESPECIALLY if she`s seriously considering a Presidential run.

    Yes and the following people have benefited from GW being president:
    -Oil companies (Gas from 0.45/l to 1.10/l ($1.80/gal to $4.40/gal))
    -Iraqi citizens (the ones who survived anyway)
    -Haliburton stockholders
    -Rapidscan stockholders
    -Military suppliers
    -Seniors on the Pharmaceutics plan (this one`s a plus)
    -The rich with their continuing tax cuts
    -Sarah Palin (ok this one`s pushing it a bit)
    If I`ve missed something (good or bad) please add it.

    On a side note, I just noticed the copyright on the bottom of the page - Demand Media - is this new or have I just not noticed it?

    Libs are morons, dumb, arrogant, racist, elite idiots with no common sense.

    They procreate like rabbits and don`t contribute to society. That giant sucking sound we hear is the lib drain on our economy and intellectual standing.

    They should all head to Canada and/or Europe where they could meld together into the next Socialist Republic and readopt the CCCP as their symbol of stupidity. In that manner they would disappear, for their way is unsustainable. They would have no one to tax except themselves. They don`t have jobs so how much tax comes from zero? Nor do they know how to create a job unless their government does it.

    They can`t form a logical thought, instead they all spew the mantra of their media. A unique, original thought is impossible for them.

    They vote for themselves like incestuous children, and can`t take the same BS they dish out.

    ... and most of the stuff I just typed is like reading posts from the libs.

    Her GOP fellows break their silence...

    "Her substantive deficiencies, even more dramatic than those previously reported. *Her lack of understanding about why there are two Koreas* her ignorance about the function of the Federal Reserve, her belief that Saddam Hussein was responsible for 9/11. *The fact that, at her lowest moments during her preparation for her debate against Joe Biden, some senior Mccain aides worried that she was mentally unstable* And ultimately, their fears that she wasn`t up to the job of being VP."

    I wouldn`t worry about her becoming Prez any time soon though, she only appeals to about 28% of the country as is. She wouldn`t even make it through her own party`s nomination process.

    another reason why she should never be president.... and not becuase she said North Korea and not South Korea... she misspoke that`s all.

    The scary part is she didn`t give an answer... at all. She went around the question and gave a puff answer... just like she always does.

    If that retard gets into any kind of political office you can expect the USA to lose it`s hold on power in the world.

    I did not suggest that Europe is better than the USA. In fact in ways I suggest that the US is a great country. But I suppose that hadn`t come across well in my English. I like the US, I was meant to say that the US shouldn`t pick up and advertise this sort of thing around the world - a few of my Anti-US friends rely on this sort of material.

    I did not mean to offend anyone.


    Stop acting like Europe is better than the US because we have a retarded politician of whom we love to make fun. Makes you individually look really ignorant, both in the eyes of Americans and other Europeans.

    @Tridirk are you the guy that`s been coaching Sarah Palin on how to give speeches and answer questions?

    `Cuz your post says a whole lot of nothing just like Sarah Palin`s answer did! Yet somehow, even though neither of you acutally knows anything about politics, you both manage to voice your big uninformed opinions with an amazing amount of obnoxiousness! The similarities are quite uncanny!

    My favorite part of your rant was when you conflicted your own message by stereotyping liberals both as elite and as jobless. Darn those elite jobless liberals ruining our country! Bravo! Excellent rant Tridirk... or should I say Sarah Palin!

    You must be liberal, as I said, you probably have never had an original thought.

    I took my post to the extreme. I didn`t matter what was true or not, only what perception could be created. Many libs spew the same stuff, true or not.

    beer... spoken like a typical lib

    I am about freedom and smaller government, yes....totally. That would be the opposite of totalitarianism, which would be big government. Who is for big government? ... yes, Libs.

    Polarize, and marginalize us that don`t agree with them. We all know who libs are and what they want. At their core, big government and to redistribute from those that have to those that they choose. You have reinvented the meaning of liberal to make it seem philanthropic. Again, not with your money but with the money of others.

    Would you really call that improvement and moving forward? I call it moving backward. Long ago, those that could took from those that couldn`t stop them. Libs do it today by making people dependent on their big government. For once dependent on the libs, the libs will be voted in over and over.

I can understand being against the former, but cheering on the latter as you mouthbreathers did when President Cheney shoved the "patriot" Act down our throats, and Bush obliged in signing it, makes me think you and the other cons have no freaking clue what your talking about.

    another media lib talking point. Bush-Cheney. What did that have to do with what I typed?

    I was accused of wanting totalitarianism, which would be big government. Which is not what I want.

    Now, you say I am for Big Brother, again I am for personal freedoms and less government. That means less lib or conservative, Dem or Repub government.

    Government should be there to keep the peace, keep us safe, protect us from outsiders, and make sure that we all play fair. Not ensure equal outcome or more fair outcome. Or redistribute wealth.

    Wouldn`t it be great if all of us, lib/conservative, dem/repub, any ethnicity or economic background have the freedom to succeed? Prosper? Fairly? To strive for our true potential? Government should ensure that we are all treated equally. Wouldn`t you like that chance?

    It`s a good thing he`s NOT as intelligent as you imagine him to be. Imagine the destruction he could cause to the country if he actually were competent and showed up for work every day.

    I can`t believe you typed that? Can you not see the difference?

    Big Government takes the power from the people and puts in into the hands of the elite political class. Taking from the many and giving that power to the few. Big Government is totalitarianism. So why would you give the people`s power to them?

    @Tridirk So your against people "spewing" crap which is why you`re doing it? Ah, typical hypocritical conservative. Is that why so many conservative Republicans are against higher taxes but given the opportunity raise them?

    Also, your wrong. I am not a "liberal" I`m more of a "moderate". I`m not even actually against the idea of conservatism in the text book sense, I`m just against people like you trying to polarize the political climate of IAB while contributing absolutley nothing.

    The truth is that I would love to see less big government and more power given to the states where people could actually be involved in it. I loathe that the Federal government gets to take our money through onscene taxes and impose it`s will by dangeling it back over our states heads with restrictions. That said I want health care reform.

If they did, they`d be on the streets protesting this war like they protested Vietnam. I may be a total conspiracy theorist, but I think the govt. caused the economy crash just to force the American people to focus on staying alive and fed, so "they" can just do whatever the f` they want.

    and NotTHAT... You call yourself a moderate and then use polarizing words that you are against?Like so many you agree with not liking the Federal government having so much power but find it OK for some things.

    The more government gives us they more government controls us. You said it yourself when you said they dangle it over our head with restrictions.

    There is hypocrisy on both sides. We have seen Repub and Dem politicians say what it takes to get elected and then do the opposite.

    "Like so many you agree with not liking the Federal government having so much power but find it OK for some things."

    Yes of course I do, that is what makes me a moderate and not an radical extremist like perhaps you? While I don`t want the government to have the power to intrude upon my private life I do want it to have enough power to protect the interests of it`s citizens against foreign and domestic threats.

    For example I would like for the government to be able to protect me (and my future children) from the massive Health Care Corporations that at some point decided that they would not cover certain life saving procedures which they called "experimental" although they were backed by trials. Although these corportations made billions of dollars off of selling their insurance at some point they decided to rewrite the rules and we need for the government to step in!

    We disagree. I don`t think you read what I wrote long ago in this discussion. But I don`t think it would make any difference if you did.

    Corporate taxes get passed on to us consumers that use what corporations produce and charge. The taxes increase the cost and they add profit to those costs. So, any additional corporate tax is really a tax on us that we pay in the form of higher prices1. The corporation doesn`t pay we do.

    Massive evil corporations are a marketing ploy set forth by liberal politicians that want government to control all things. If you don`t like what those evil corporations do, then regulate them with rules. That is completely different than providing government funded health care. Or....just like a Steve Seagal movie, call and he can whip the evil corporation for you!

    Do you believe the Federal Government is efficient? Fair, and good at managing money? Without corruption or misuse?

    @Tridirk Bull poo. Or somewhat bull poo.

    I`m not suggesting that corporate taxes should be raised by some enormous amount that is really going to hurt business`s bottom line and force prices up. Just a half a percent or so.

    Heck I`d even be happy if the government just stopped handing out subsidies and got rid of the tax loop holes.

    Yes it is possible that some businesses would try and raise their prices in reaction to increased taxes, but some companies would also inevitably find that it was more profitable not pass that small loss onto customers keeping their product more affordable and appealing to buyers.

    P.S. Walmart is real and they do deny the majority of their workers health insurance that we have to make up for with our tax dollars. Health insurance companies do deny life saving treatments to people who have paid thousands into that insurance. Marketing ploy my butt!

    Bored, nice thoughts and I understand where you are coming from. But business doesn`t operate on a loss.

    All costs, including tax which is a cost is factored in and then a profit is added. Without that profit above cost business would go out of business. No matter how small the tax.

    I am not against removing tax loop holes etc. But again when you raise a tax on a business we pay the increase of that tax to that business if we are a customer. It is pretty simple really.

    Our lib friends use business and the rich as class warfare to enlist the votes of the poorer of us (which there are more including myself) to vote them into power. Not all business people or owners are bad, just as not all people are bad.

    Which would you prefer? To have the government give you socialized healthcare at no cost or minimal cost to you? or That you made enough money you could pay for your own healthcare? Nothing is Free.

    How much in taxes do you pay now?

    "Bored, nice thoughts and I understand where you are coming from. But business doesn`t operate on a loss."

    And that is exactly what I would count on. For it to be more profitable to keep a good or a service at its current price than to raise it in reaction to a small tax increase and risk losing business/profit.

    Honestly, and I would have to do some research to back this up, but from observation I don`t believe that many large companies even base their prices so much on what they pay out in costs as much as what they can get for an item or a service. For example Wallmart isn`t going to sell a shirt for $5 if they know they can get $10 for it regardless of whether a shirt cost $1 or $2 for them to buy, transport, and sell that shirt. So if they are putting something at it`s max price point already or what they believe people are able or willing to pay for an item they may decide that increaing an items price by 50 cents might just not be worth it.

    As long as every working person gets good healthcare, where they are not denied treatment, I`ll be happy. I don`t care how they do it.

    Switzerland has good healthcare. France has good healthcare. Either way they accomplish it, by making laws to increase wages so more people can afford healthcare or making free healthcare policy, people will need to get on our governments butt or they won`t do it right.
