Quote from: Mr. X on Apr 19, 2010, 07:28 PM[...] NONE vetted the two books WRITTEN BY THE PRESIDENT. If anybody should be vetted its THE PRESIDENT not some minor league player.Why it wasn't vetted, then? aren't there numerous think tanks like the Cato Institute which have the (well) funded brain power to do so?

QuoteDuring her book signing tours, has she ridiculed restrictive gun laws in left leaning states she went through? During her time as Governor, she was instrumental in prohibiting municpalities from putting restrictions on firearms that contravened and Susperseded state law.QuoteLet me add that while Palin was running for VP, I called her office three times and wrote several emails asking what Palin's stand is on illegal immigration. I got NO replies! None! We have a serious drug problem directly related to open borders and the illegal aliens bring those nasty drugs into our country. Thousands of people per year are murdered by illegal aliens, yet I have not heard her say Americans in all states need to have liberal access to fire arms to protect themselves.That's right, even though she has mocked people about being a "bitter Clinger", been shown firing an assault rifle, enacted laws as governor to expand gun rights, enacted laws as governor to curb illegal immigration and access of same to state services - She didn't respond personally to your letter out of millions, or say in so many words your script - which no other politician has, either - so she's a raving bitch.Want to move the goalposts again? Or do you just want to admit you don't WANT to like Sarah Palin?

So - where do you want to move the goalposts to now?
As for any first class accommodations, can we look at Al Gore's flight arrangements or Bill Clinton's? I guarantee they demand private jets and all sorts of amenities. Bottled water is nothing. Wanting passage big enough for her family and security isn't unreasonable.
And you don't understand that "Governor" and "Dictator" aren't synonymous. When the law was passed curbing the ability of municipalities to override state Gun ;aws, it was done because absent such specific laws to the contrary, Alaska is a "Home Rule" state.Palin had an "R" after her name, but got elected despite being opposed by the Alaskan Go-Along-To-Get-Along.A bill banning drivers' licenses for illegals passed the Alaska state senate in 2003 [before Palin was elected governor]: "JUNEAU (AP)--The state Senate approved a bill that tightens the standards for getting a driver's license by requiring applicants prove they are in the country legally and by placing time limits on licenses for legal aliens."The measure did not pass into law. In any event, Palin's DMV subsequently tightened the administrative regulations on drivers' licenses, thereby giving rise to a lawsuit by some folks who found the new restrictions inconvenient.The new restrictions were not, however, enough for at least some members of the legislature, who tried again recently to enact a ban into the statutory law: "Despite two unsuccessful pushes, [a new bill] addresses the rights of illegal immigrants in Alaska: to require applicants to show proof of residency before they can get a driver's license."Source: As reported on lafrontera.mojo4m.com Sep 5, 2006 She's been on Laura Ingraham, Hannity, and other shows and has repeatedly made statements against Illegal Immigration and "Comprehensive" reform.You need to know more about Realpolitik in Alaska. Here are a few things we do know. Alaska has a 1,500-mile border with Canada, but immigration is not a major issue. The Pew Hispanic Center estimated that the state has one of the smallest number of illegal immigrants, with fewer than 10,000 as of a few years ago, and one of the slowest growth rates in the illegal population. The total immigrant population isn't much bigger -- the Center for Immigration Studies recently estimated that in 2007, there were only 39,000 foreign-born people in Alaska, legal and illegal combined, representing about 6 percent of the state population, less than half the immigrant share in the nation's population as a whole. Data from the 2000 Census showing that Filipinos are by far the single biggest immigrant group in Alaska. According to the Congressional Research Service, the legislature in 2003 ( BEFORE Sarah Palin became governor) declared Alaska a sanctuary state, "prohibiting state agencies from using resources or institutions for the purpose of enforcing federal immigration laws." Alaska is also one of the few states that gives driver's licenses to illegal aliens, but in September of 2006 Sarah Palin instructed the BMV to crack down on verification of identity, which resulted in lawsuits, since she couldn't get such bills to be enacted by the legislature.So, what o we have? Alaska is probably the most gun friendly state, so much that Vermont actually copied them by beginning to issue licenses for reciprocity purposes; That Sarah Palin has on the speaking trail been openly contemptuous of Gun-Grabbing, and that while her positions on immigration as mayor and governor- since Alaska isn't a big destination for illegals - is small, she is on the record as opposing comprehensive reform, and in taking steps within her authority of opposing illegal immigration.So - where do you want to move the goalposts to now?
Either that or our teenagers need to get off their asses and start milking cows and picking strawberries.
Palin demands Lear jet, deluxe hotel suite, bottled water with bendable straws
I am just guessing here, but since over 70% of all agricultural workers are illegal immigrants, I don't think the majorty are here to bring drugs. I could be wrong. I do not agree with supporting illegal aliens. However there is a huge need here in the US for their labor, and so it seems to me a lot of this could have been alieviated by making the process more speedy and accessable for them to be here legally. Either that or our teenagers need to get off their asses and start milking cows and picking strawberries.
Mexico has a single, streamlined law that ensures that foreign visitors and immigrants are: • in the country legally;• have the means to sustain themselves economically;• not destined to be burdens on society;• of economic and social benefit to society;• of good character and have no criminal records; and• contributors to the general well-being of the nation.The Mexican law also ensures that: • immigration authorities have a record of each foreign visitor;• foreign visitors do not violate their visa status;• foreign visitors are banned from interfering in the country's internal politics;• foreign visitors who enter under false pretenses are imprisoned or deported;• foreign visitors violating the terms of their entry are imprisoned or deported;• those who aid in illegal immigration will be sent to prison.------------------------------------------------------Specifics of the law:• Foreigners are admitted into Mexico "according to their possibilities of contributing to national progress."
