Jury's still out for me. Just because she's a woman, doesn't mean I will automatically jump on that bandwagon.

I agree with you on that, I can say I probably wouldnt have voted for Hillary but this lady I like. She is all people men and women are talking about here.

I caught less than the last half of her speech. I was very impressed. Things that come out of her mouth don't sound like political sound bites. Agree or not, she can make her point clearly. Her speech abilities made me think, "That's how Bill got elected."

Please do not compare her to Bill. I love that he picked a woman to have as a running mate but I do not want a 44 year old anyone with relatively no political experience to be my president if Johnny boy kicks the bucket. I believe the whole situation with her daughter proves how two faced the religous right is. What is the almighty James Dobson going to say about this?

As someone closely familiar with the religious right due to my upbringing, they do not live in the real world. Fortunately, the last time I checked, the "almighty James Dobson" was not running for office. As someone who has generally voted Republican, I find it refreshing to have a nominee who seems to at least understand that. He has to court their votes to get elected, just like Barack has to court traditionally Democratic voters.

My question is this - why is everyone so concerned with specifically political experience? Leadership is leadership in my opinion, and either you can do it or you can't. She has as more credible, usable experience than Barack (executive vs. legislative) and if you elect him you are guaranteed to get someone who has never spent a second in that type of job. If you're basing a decision on political experience there is currently one option - McCain.

I was watching Cnn this am and they were talking about her and here is what they had to say. Someone wrote her a very good speach. The top 2 republicans stated they thought the Mccain made the biggest mistake ever picking her for his VP. Not my words but the republicans.

The same said about Obama. He makes a great speach but he's not saying anything, is whats being said about him. Neither really have any experience but people just dont like change they are afraid to have a woman as VP. He and his wife has put down America for years now they want to take it back. I wasnt sure about a woman in office either but I [PoorWordUsage] sure not going to vote for someone like Obama

How is this proving how two faced the religious right is? I don't care who it is, there is no family without problems. At least they are not hiding it, or blaming anyone else for it. Her daughter made a poor decision, and they are dealing with it. Much like other families would.

If you look at the history of the Presidency, there are more warts than roses.

To argue politics is futile. Politics and religion are two subjects that very few will change their minds on...it is futile....

Well said DeeDee. I like her from what I have seen so far. As far as experience and age, how much does BHO have? Not as much as her and how old is BHO? Isn't he around the same age?

Sorry people, but this sounds like the outdoors political forum, not the informational, chiding Women's forum that we are used to...

On a side note, all the ladies that will talk to me at work, are not in favor of Sarah.

I knew it was over there, but this is and the photography forums are really the only ones I know how to get to and I was wondering what opinion the ladies here had about Palin.

I don't go into to Outdoor Discussion's board either DeeDee. I'm not very well versed in the art of Political Bantering and Discussion. People get very defensive. Sometimes I don't blame them!! It's hard to discuss such touchy subjects when you can't be face to face with the person and see reactions, facial expressions and their passion for what they believe. It's easy to bash someone knowing you'll never have to face them in the real world too.

Something that has taken precedence for me is Palin’s religious beliefs!

Is it Gods will/plan that we are in Iraq? Should we pray for a $30,000,000,000.00 gas line to be built while in church? Should I believe in someone who speaks in tongue during church services? Pentecostal beliefs and since being VP, them being played down?

Sarah Palin believes all of the above.

I am for religion being part of a politicians life, but should it be dictating their decisions while in the White House? Pres or VP?

I respect all religious beliefs, but on the same hand I respect in a small way (on a constitutional level) the beliefs of the Black Panthers, KKK and other extreme groups, but do I want their extreme beliefs being in the White House, NO!

    • I like minced onion for added flavor and moisture, maybe a splash of beer instead of water, a couple shakes of Wooster (or some Wooster powder) and a handfull of hi-temp cheese.  Adding some ground pork or sausage to the ground beef is an option if we have some in the fridge.  Ironically this is the same way I approach meatloaf, and I do it indirect on my smoker but add some bacon on top.  If I want a Mexican profile I'll mix chorizo and beef together and might add some minced jalapenos and use Mexican spices.  
    • The wife and I went on Sunday also. Like Rundrave, a lot of the lodge booths didn't really appeal to me but we talked to quite a few dog people there, maybe learned a few things. Funny how two people that would have nothing in common can talk like old friends for 20 minutes about a dog.Realized that a lot of the game farms are WAY more expensive than the one I'm a member at.  Over all I would say it was worth it.
    •     I think we would be better served by not being suspicious of religions themselves, but by being suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool to serve their purposes.     How Gandhi put it:   I had practiced Hinduism from early childhood. My nurse had taught me to invoke Rama when I feared evil spirits. Later on, I had come in contact with Christians, Muslims and others, and after making a fair study of other religions, had stuck to Hinduism. I am as firm in my faith today as in my early childhood. I believe god would make me an instrument of saving the religion that I love, cherish and practice. In any case, one has to have constant practice and acquaintance with the fundamentals of religion before being qualified for becoming god's instrument. It has been whispered that by being so much with Musalman friends I make myself unfit to know the Hindu mind. The Hindu mind is myself. Surely I do not need to live amidst Hindus to know the Hindu mind when every fiber of my being is Hindu. My Hinduism must be a very poor thing if it cannot flourish under influences of the most adverse. I know instinctively what is necessary for Hinduism. As my instinct is wholly Hindu, I know that what I am about to say will be acceptable to the vast mass of the Hindus. My Hinduism is not sectarian. It includes all that I know to be best in Islam,Christianity, Buddhism and Zoroastrianism. I approach politics, as everything else, in a religious spirit. Truth is my religion and ahimsa is the only way of its realization. I have rejected once and for all the doctrine of the sword. My position is and has been clear. I am proud of being a Hindu, but I have never gone to anybody as a Hindu to secure Hindu-Muslim unity. My Hinduism demands no pacts. I am no politician in the accepted sense. It is because I am sanatani (orthodox) Hindu that I claim to be a Christian, a Buddhist and a Muslim. Some Muslim friends also feel that I have no right to read Arabic verses from the Koran, but such (people) do not know that true religion transcends language and scripture. I do not see any reason why I should not read the Kalma, why I should not praise Allah and why I should not acclaim Muhammad as his prophet. I believe in all the great prophets and saints of every religion. I shall continue to ask god to give me strength not to be angry with my accusers, but to be prepared even to die at their hands without wishing them ill. I claim that Hinduism is all-inclusive and I am sure that if I live up to my convictions, I shall have served not only Hinduism but Islam also. There is mention of terrible punishments in the Bhagavatam, the Manu Smriti and the Vedas. Yet the central teaching of the Hindu religion is that mercy of kindness is the essence of all religion. I want you to bear in mind what Tulsidas has said: "Good and bad, all men are the creation of god. The man of god picks up the good and discards the bad like the proverbial swan which is able to drink the milk and leave behind water, when a mixture of water and milk is placed before it." I am proud to belong to that Hinduism which is all inclusive and which stands for tolerance. Aryan scholars swore by what they called the Vedic religion and Hindustan is otherwise known as 'Aryavarta.' I have no such aspiration. The Hindustan of my conception is all-sufficing for me. It certainly includes the Vedas, but it includes also much more. I can detect no inconsistency in declaring that I can, without in any way whatsoever impairing the dignity of Hinduism, pay equal homage to the best of Islam, Christianity, Zoroastrianism and Judaism. Such Hinduism will live as long as the sun shines. Tulsidas has summed it up in one doha (couplet): "The root of religion is embedded in mercy, whereas egotism is rooted in love of the body." Tulsi says that mercy should never be abandoned, even though the body perishes. Hinduism is not an exclusive religion. In it there is room for the worship of all prophets in the world. It is not a missionary religion in the ordinary sense of the term. It has no doubt absorbed many tribes in its fold, but this absorption has been an evolutionary, imperceptible character. Hinduism tells everyone to worship god according to his own faith or dharma and so it lives at peace with all religions. Though I call myself a sanatani Hindu, I am proud of the fact that the late Imam Saheb of South Africa accompanied me to India on his return and died in the Sabarmati ashram. His daughter and son-in-law are still at Sabarmati. Am I to throw them overboard? My Hinduism teaches me to respect all religions. In this lies the secret of Rama Raj. The die is cast for me. The common factor of all religions is non-violence. Some inculcate more of it than others; all agree that you can never have too much of it. We must be sure, however, that it is non-violence and not a cloak for cowardice. Hinduism with its message of ahimsa is to me the most glorious religion in the world -- as my wife to me is the most beautiful woman in the world -- but others may feel the same about their own religion. Religion is outraged when an outrage is perpetrated in its name. Almost all the riots in the unhappy land take place in the name of religion, though they might have a political motive behind them. There is no room for goondaismin any religion worth the name, be it Islam, Hinduism or any other. If religion dies, then India dies. Today, the Hindus and the Muslims are clinging to the husk of religion. They have gone mad. But I hope that all this is froth, that all this scum has come to the surface, as happens when the waters of two rivers meet. Everything appears muddy on top and underneath is crystal clear and calm. The scum goes to the sea of itself, and the rivers mingle and flow clear and pure.          
    •   thanks all for the replies - how does this Aqua Vu HD 700i display show up outside?  So from the replies I'm sure I narrowed my search down for either the Marcum VS825SD or Aqua Vu HD 700i.  Not just have to see if I can find some year end ice specials.
