Now, if you want me to look at what she said and tell you if that constituttes a lie, you then need to show me what she said. That she may have contradicted herself, as noted, above in no wy necessitates that she lied, as it is possible to contradict yourself w/o knowingly making a false statement.A lie requies that the person in question intentionally made a false statement, and specifically requires that the person knew the statement was false.
Or, you can skulk away.
See post #55
The lengths some people will go in an attempt to smear someone with whom they disagree politically is simply astounding.
"I believe in a Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the harmony of all that exists, but not in a God who concerns himself with the fate and actions of human beings."
--Albert Einstein, 1929
From Post 55:
Version 2:"My first five years of life we spent in Skagway, Alaska, right there by Whitehorse: Believe it or not, this was in the 60's, we used to hustle over the border for health care that we would receive in Whitehorse," Palin told the crowd.
"I remember my brother, he burned his ankle in some little kid accident thing and my parents had to put him on a train and rush him over to Whitehorse and I think, isn't that kind of ironic now," Palin added. "Zooming over the border, getting health care from Canada."
Apparently,the focus here is the mode of transportation?"Palin drew from her Skagway past to illustrate her point. Her brother burned his foot badly jumping through a fire and her mother had to take him down to Juneau on the ferry to the hospital.
"'All these years later, that's still what people have to rely on here in some instances,' she said."
Now, I said:
Where is the intentional false statement?A lie requies that the person in question intentionally made a false statement, and specifically requires that the person knew the statement was false.
How does this show that Palin knew the one (or both) of the statements was false?
There's no proof of a lie, there's a difference in the two stories - for all any of us know, the trip could have been made by car, with Palin being worng both times she recited the story. That doesn't mean she lied.
Its amazing the length you people will go thru to smear people you just don't like. Why does Palin scare you so much?
i know....but it was purchased long before that.
