    In a country where tens of millions of people bought $400k houses with no money down and adjustable rate mortgages, I don't think that she's really the problem.

    So what is her job going to be? Fame and fortune is fleeting especially in her case. And then the taxes are due after the maintenance.

    She could mop ****ing floors for minimum wage and I bet she'd have enough to take care of the house.

    Again, someone who can pull together $172k in cash by age 20-whatever will probably be able to come up with $5-10k/year. They're not really the problem in the housing market.

    Back at you... and yes, sorry, but I really didn't think the story was interesting -- other than the fact she seems to have gotten a great deal... good for her...

    Very true. Look at all the anti-Palin threads on this forum.

    the upkeep and taxes etc.. would probably be considerably less than her going out and getting a decent apartment. How will she pay? By getting a job and hopefully a good education out of all of this. She was tossed into the limelight and has handled herself better than most youngsters would considering the scrutiny.

    As for her going around and giving abstinence talks, I would hope she would tell the kids about proper use of contraception as well, but either way we shouldn't fault someone for turning lemons into lemonade. I know a few young unwed mothers and fathers that for the most part are responsible children so we really shouldn't act like this is a problem that is completely unique to the Palins because of some kind of lack of intelligence or morals. **** happens. Hopefully she learned from it and will be a good mother.

    I agree that if she bought a 10 million dollar house the MSM would be all over it, putting her and her family down and talking about how all they care about is money and making money blah blah blah. Since Bristol bought a modest home, got a good deal on it and is a first time homeowner living the American dream, it's a non story. Nothing to make fun of here, so why is it the news?

    Exactly, more so than someone who hasn't been through it. I don't know why people insist on putting her down for this. She is perfect as a spokesperson for young people.

    LOL too bad people weren't that concerned when people all over the country were buying houses they couldn't afford the mortgage on.
    Bristol is 20 yrs old and paid cash for her home. I think that's a good thing and I'm sure there's no need to worry about how she'll pay her taxes.

    Is isn't a putdown but seeing through the smokescreen.

    Number one, her getting pregnant in high school has opened up doors to lucrative tv employment along with book deals. You don't see either of the Bush girls Dancing With The Stars. She isn't struggling to make a living with her baby in a trailer house.

    In order to warn others about a behavior there must be an ability to show the negative consequences. She came from an upper middle class home with both parents present. A mom who meticulosly taught her children about abstinence.
    And yet she got pregnant. How much effect do you think her 30 minute presentation on abstinence will have on a teen living in a single parent household where the parent is working two jobs a day? The school would be better off using that $30,000 to give out free condoms to the kids.

    Her demand for $15,000 to $30,000 a speech is going to eliminate almost every public high school I know as so many are strapped for money that many programs are being axed. How would you feel if your public high school paid Daryl Stawberry $30,000 to come and speak about drug abuse?
