    I agree. This lady has pimped her kids out to social media. She has pimped out her family for material gain. She could be the highest paid celebrity on TV and that still would put her pretty low on the totem pole. It's almost like she takes every possible situation she can and turns it into something where she's the victim. I think at some point she'll realized that there are simply a lot of people who don't like her and she'll fade away or take up a Jerry Springer like role in our society.

    Pic is at the link (which I'll include). So why put this in Polls? I'm curious if the story, to put it bluntly, pisses you off because I gotta admit, as an animal fan, most especially dogs, it kinda pisses me off. Not at the kid, of course, but I know, if it were me, I'd teach my kid to not stand on the family dog.

    Sorry about the weird font and sizing. It did something weird when I copied the quote.

    Attaching poll.

    Yeah, see only stupid people allow kids to abuse animals in that way, and Palin is not up on the smart people roster. If the kid were say two or younger, then that's just a baby playing with the family dog. But - Sarah had to okay this as a cute step ladder.

    I just wish that she'd go on the strip circuit to raise money for charity.

    Shrug...I proved my point about the dog abuse and I proved my point about the Palin-haters. They are quick to jump all over Palin, but disregard similar stuff from others. Oh...and what do you expect Palin to do when she is attacked over something that others consider cute and inspirational? Not respond? But when she does, y'all jump all over her for THAT!!

    LOL!!

    Palin-haters gotta hate.
    Yeah, not going to work trying to make this into me "whining and crying about US politics". In the first place because I am not whining or crying, I am delirious that our political system does not work with that much hatred and where co-operation between 2 opposing political views is not alone possible but workable. I would like to live in the US because I have great friends there and a lady that I love with all my heart, but looking at the political system, then you are right, I am not a big fan of political hatred.

    And no, you did not prove anything. This is a thread about Palin and liberals complain just as much about Ellen Degeneres when she posted a picture of a child standing on a dog but I think it is more the complete over-reaction of conservatives for people daring to say something negative about saint Palin, the anointed one of the tea party. I am not saying anything about Palin's political points of view when I complain about her allowing her son to stand on the back of a dog.

    I see here attempt after attempt to deflect the valid criticism of Palin's dog being used as a stepping stone by attacking Obama eating dog as a child, falsely stating that Ellen Degeneres did not get criticism, etc.

    And it seems you have the same kneejerk reaction, when you are confronted with deflecting by using a false accusation (of Obama telling the republicans to get to the back of the bus) you go on the attack by calling everybody who stated they did not like this picture as "palin haters".

    Well, as said before, I do not hate Palin but I do not agree with her letting the dog be stepped upon and then posting this on facebook as if it were something positive. And how you feel about that frankly, I do not give a flying

I assume his parents see nothing wrong with him standing on the dog. The more he does it, the more likely it is going to injure the dog and damage it's back and legs.

    Also, Trig is growing. He is going to weigh more and get bigger. His parents should teach him to not stand on the dog now and not later.


    Add: It's not the dog's responsibility to lash out or teach Trig not to stand on it. It's the parent's responsibility.
    Here is what makes me mad. If/when this does hurt the dog, a likely outcome may include the dog biting the child. With idiots like this, I'm sure they will blame the dog and have it put down.

    Oh...I wasn't referring everyone who didn't like the picture as Palin-haters. I was talking about those who spout their over-the-top rhetoric about her...while making no comment on the things that happened to animals in the videos I posted. That tells me it's not about the dog for them...it's about their outrageous hatred for anything Palin does or says. That hatred is of the same intensity and is overblown in the same way as the outrageous things liberal/progressives/Democrats said about Bush.

    I don't know if there is a mental health condition for that kind of attitude...but there should be. I think it's downright pathological.

    Most people who post pictures of our kids on Facebook aren't doing it so we can whore them out in order to play victims. I don't believe she was either. The picture and post went viral. PETA went berserk.

    Half the dogs that come into our rescue that are owner turn ins come in because they did "something" to the kid. When probed, the idiot parents say "Well all little Harry did was pull his tail" or "She tried to ride Spot like a pony". Takes everything in me not to snap.

    There should be a test for dog ownership. It amazes me how many people don't understand that dogs are not teething rings, tetherballs, step stools, etc.

    I would be inclined to agree with you if she did not then take it as an opportunity in subsequent FB posts to attack liberals because PETA went berserk. Personally, we adopted special needs twice, but I don't hang my kids out as public bait so that I can then play the victim. Its kind of a white trash thing to do.

    I post pictures of my kids on my Facebook page all the time. I don't do it so I can be a victim. I don't believe she did either. I think she, like too many American adults, doesn't know that what she did was wrong.

    PETA was out of line attacking her the way they did, and she was right to call them out on their hypocrisy.

    I missed her calling out Liberals but didn't pay much attention to her response to PETA. What did she say about Liberals? I saw her call them out for the Ellen thing (she was right), Obama and the dog eating (she was right), the Iditarod, and their hypocrisy in leather and other animal by-products.

    From here latest FB Post:

    Hopefully we'll talk about new energy and leadership needed in Washington, and I'll bet he and his huge, wonderful audience may want a take on the ridiculousness and danger of liberal hypocrisy rearing it's head again and again – this time over a kid and a dog. I am humbled to get to share TRUTH with all of you.
    PETA is an animal rights organization. Its not a liberal or a conservative organization. She throws liberalism in with it because its more red meat for her fans. I post pictures of me and my kids on FB all the time. If some animal rights group started throwing a fit over a picture of my son posing with a fish he caught, I would not respond with a political rant as PETA has nothing to do liberalism or conservatism. I would just point out that its PETA and no one takes them seriously anyway.

    If this were some isolated incident I would agree with you, but she has constantly whored her kids out so she could then play the victim. I guarantee you she posted those pictures on FB knowing the nutters in PETA would throw a fit, and then she could make another political rant about it.
