Sarah Palin´s oldest son, Track, is getting divorced just 18 months after tying the knot, in another blow to the family values advocate. The 23-year-old and his wife, Britta, 22, jointly filed for divorce in an Alaskan court this week, according to TMZ. The couple married in May, 2011, and just three months later, Britta gave birth to a little girl, Kyla. The news of Track´s marriage breakdown comes after his sister Bristol´s very public relationship dramas. Bristol, who famously got pregnant in 2008 at age 18, was twice engaged to high school boyfriend Levi Johnston,
Much as I love Sarah Palin, I have to wonder if she might regret having sent her children to public school.
The older daughters´ behavior suggests, to me, that they were saturated in the decadent pop culture that reigns in public schools.
By the time my youngest son was ready for junior high, it began to dawn on me how pernicious the public school atmosphere had become. Hence I took him out of there and homeschooled him. Best thing I ever did.
FTA: "Sarah Palin´s oldest son, Track, is getting divorced just 18 months after tying the knot, in another blow to the family values advocate."
This is sad. The LSM media won´t leave Sarah Palin and her family alone and these are the consequences. There is nothing but snark in this beginning sentence & put down of the Tea Party advocate. Instead of using what limited talents these writers [drones] and editors have to the current real problems of North Korea, Middle East, and that stupid "fiscal cliff" drama. Oh, Benghazi and PIAPS.
There´s nothing like being judged by Satan´s servants.
Anyone who dares to advocate morality is immediately and relentlessly accused of hypocrisy. This gives people who´ve rejected God a smug feeling. It also lets them feel that there is no such thing as right and wrong.
I normally find the ones who are the most critical of these types of personal activities have had more than the average share of same in their lives and in their immediate family. The Daily Mail knows putting Sarah Palin´s name in a headline is worth $$$$$$$$$ to them.
I feel for her and feel badly for her son and his wife and baby. These things happen, and sometimes no matter how hard to try to instill the right values, it happens anyway. Two of our children divorced within 2 years of marriage. I guess according to #2 we are losers too. No, we are not and the Palins are not losers, either...people make mistakes, and today´s society tends to not take marriage as seriously as the older generations did. This doesn´t make me think any less of the Palins.
Re #2 -- Track served our country in the middle east. Yeah, what a loser.
I´ve raised 5 & they will tear your heart out before their generation decides to grow up. 30 is the new 20 for maturity in America. Kinda hard to escape the culture -- even home-schooling.
We sent one to a military school his junior year to save him. Sent our daughter to a girl´s school in Texas where she had to use leather gloves to work the farm. Sent one son to a Christian, then private school. Sent another to a 90-day rehab when he was 28.
They are all doing wonderful today -- but I am grateful we weren´t famous & every move scrutinized by the stone-throwers.
What the Daily Mail could have said instead is that Sarah Palin and her husband are an example of loving and sturdy parenthood and that they don´t ask their children to present a perfect appearance to win that - they accept their children frailties and all, and just find a happy way forward. This could have been a story about Love. It would have been a true one.
"There´s nothing like being judged by Satan´s servants."
Very, very well said, #7. The hatred and not-so-subtle faux condescension spewed from some of these smug and truly obnoxious posters toward Sarah Palin and her family make me wonder how vicious they must be away from the internet boards. They have no class whatsoever and I don´t think I´ve ever come across people more full of hate in my life, on or off the internet.
The Palin family is by no means a perfect one. Neither is mine. I’m guessing neither is yours. But, which family is? What I like most about the Palin family is that they don’t go around murdering their own babies, especially the traditional-calendar-disrupting ones and call it… “a choice.”
He that is without sin, let him cast the first stone. The kids made a mistake, got married to give the little one an honorable birthright and now are divorcing. Leave them alone. It isn´t any of our business.
Bless your heart #23. Knowledge of birth control does not translate into avoiding pregnancy in the world of humans, particularly young humans. Youth is often caught up in the throes of rebellion. Rebellion effectively separates them from applying knowledge, reason and wisdom (ie Common Sense) to their behavior and anticipating the consequences. In most people, the effects of rebellion diminish with age (except in the case of liberals, who seem impervious to the onset of wisdom).

Please, leave Sarah alone. She is running for nothing. What she speaks (according the the MFM) amounts to nothing. Like many hard working women, her children were taught in government controlled schools...where they learned how to wear condoms correctly, how to project heir ´other´ gender side, etc. Her children are not perfect, but her children will hopefully learn from their mistakes. Sarah is still standing tall. Allow her to do so. She is one GOP who is afraid not nothing. Perhaps her children helped to mold our Sarah into the woman she is today. The Lord works in mysterious ways.
There are tragedies in every family no matter who you are or where you were born. It´s very human. Things just don´t go well for many because of bad choices whether they are sexual or not. No family is immune. Yet here some of us are making snarky comments about what almost all of us have suffered only we were allowed the luxury of suffering in private where the obtrusive press didn´t care.
NASA’s steady reconnaissance of Mars with the Curiosity rover has produced another major discovery: evidence of an ancient lake — with water that could plausibly be described as drinkable — that was part of a long-standing, wet environment that could have supported simple forms of life. Scientists have known that the young Mars was more Earthlike than the desert planet we see today, but this is the best evidence yet that Mars had swimming holes that stuck around for thousands or perhaps millions of years. (It would have been very chilly — bring a wet suit.) The findings were being
JOHANNESBURG — President Obama, his predecessor, and the woman who might be his successor crossed the Atlantic together Monday in an example of extended bipartisan togetherness to pay tribute to Nelson Mandela at a memorial service Tuesday. For more than 16 hours, Mr. Obama hosted former President George W. Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton aboard Air Force One — part of a global pilgrimage that is expected to bring as many as 100 world leaders to South Africa. (Snip) On board the presidential aircraft as it flew to South Africa, White House aides said Mr. Obama
Today Politico´s Dylan Byers got tough on MSNBC with two posts calling into question the channel´s journalistic credibility. Byers started the day by going after MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry for something she said over the weekend. Harris-Perry claimed Sunday that the term Obamacare was an attempt by white people to denigrate a black President. Byers pointed out that "Hillarycare" and "Reaganomics" seem like similar appellations and asked, in light of these, how "Obamacare" could be implicitly racist while the other terms are not. It´s not clear whether Harris-Perry responded to Byers´ challenge privately but she did not tweet (or anything
World leaders have gathered in Johannesburg to pay tribute to Nelson Mandela at a memorial service for the former president of South Africa, five days after he died at the age of 95. Barack Obama was pictured arriving after a 17-hour flight from Washington on board Air Force One, during which he rode with his wife Michelle, former President George W. Bush, Laura Bush, and Hillary Clinton. He has been given a prominent role in the memorial service for former South African president Nelson Mandela - but may face awkward moments if he comes face to face with controversial leaders
Jim Murray, an English writer and one of the world’s top whiskey critics, believes Scottish malt is no match for American whiskey. “Generally speaking, bourbon … has overtaken Scotch,” he said, according to the Telegraph. Mr. Murray, who wrote “Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible,” argues that Scotland’s decrease in quality whiskey is due to the use of sulphur candles to sanitize some barrels that have been used to age sherry, giving it a “bitter finish.” Bourbon, however, is aged in virgin oak casks, which do not require sulphur treatment, the Telegraph said. “The best whiskey is coming not from Scotland any
Brothers Tryon, 19, and Tyshaune Kincade, 18, were formally charged Monday in the shooting death of Sergent First Class Jim Vester, 32, after arranging to sell the 12-year military veteran an iPad on Wednesday. According to phone records released by the police, the Indianapolis father wanted to buy an iPad from the brothers as a Christmas present for his parents based off of their Craigslist ad. At 3:05pm, Vester texted: ´Can I get your address´. At 3:14pm, the suspects texted him to meet at 920 Wyckford Dr. Vester arrived at the address at 3:49pm and texted: ´are you here?´ and the
Andrea Elliott, in her NY Times article "Invisible Child," articulates the disheartening existence of a family living on the meager support of government welfare. She invites her readers to look through the eyes of Dasani, the family´s 11-year-old girl. The family has a complex relationship with the welfare programs that both keep them afloat and keep their situation hopeless. Liberals advocate that welfare programs are designed to help the least fortunate and that they demonstrate a society’s compassion. However, sometimes too much compassion by the state can devolve into what recovering drug addicts would call "enabling." Moreover, the "compassionate environment"
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
