Dude, if you don't want people talking about your kids, stop using them as props to get elected. You cannot have it both ways. Also, if you want to be VP your going to have to learn to put up with a lot worse. You seem to be able to give as good as you get, though.
What were we talking about? Oh yeah:
Bureau of Labor Statistics:
"The unemployment rate rose to 5.7 percent, and nonfarm payroll employment continued to trend down in July (-51,000), the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor reported today. Employment continued to fall in construction, manufacturing, and several service-providing industries."
From the National Priorities Project :
"The Iraq War costs about $551,000,000,000, and continues to increase. This is about $4,681 per household, $1,721 per person and $341.4 million per day."
According to Palin, the job's not done yet, but "victory is in our sight." Wait, didn't Bush declare victory?
From the AFL-CIO:
"McCain voted with the Republicans in 2007 to stall a clean minimum wage increase for working families—before bowing to public pressure and voting to pass the final bill that included tax breaks for businesses."
From the Tax Policy Center:
"Both (i.e. McCain and Obama) plans would sharply increase the national debt. Including interest costs, Obama’s tax plan would boost the debt by $3.5 trillion by 2018. McCain’s plan would increase the debt by $5 trillion.
The Obama plan would reduce taxes for low- and moderate-income families, but raise them significantly for high-bracket taxpayers. By 2012, middle-income taxpayers would see their after-tax income rise by about 5 percent, or nearly $2,200 annually. Those in the top 1 percent would face a $19,000 average tax increase—a 1.5 percent reduction in after-tax income.
McCain would lift after-tax incomes an average of about 3 percent, or $1,400 annually, for middle-income taxpayers by 2012. But, in sharp contrast to Obama, he would cut taxes for those in the top 1% by more than $125,000, raising their after-tax income an average 9.5 percent. "
Gee, looks like Palin did not realize that McCain has not really been fighting for me all this time and, like I have said before, no matter who is president, your taxes are going to go up.
I was Glad to hear that she agrees with Obama about alternate fuels. And new pipelines, great! Her husband working with BP and her sister's sub-station are not a conflict of interest at all.
Dude, don't just take my word for it. I have had enough politics for one day. I am going to go rock the Shannon Stopover. (Thanks for the tip Brendan!)
