    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.

    Not in the least. The only people I could see really getting pissed about that photo are PETA-tard or some die hard Sarah Palin hater. I bet that kid has probably tried to ride the dog like a horse,maybe pulled on it's ear,probably fed it candy and sorts of other things.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    He might very well know better. It could be that he forgot to. Kids with Down Syndrome aren't the best at remembering things at times. And considering I don't know of a single NORMAL kid that remembers everything all the time I can imagine a kid with Down Syndrome being far worse. Heck, for the past week all I've been getting out of my daughter lately is "I didn't remember!". Despite the fact that she KNOWS that such a statement is no excuse for doing the same wrong thing.

    If it was my kid, I would've just said "don't stand on the dog", possibly accompanied by a smack on the butt if I wasn't promptly obeyed, and otherwise ignored the whole matter. Then again I'm not a celebutician living in a glass house.


    I'm just saying that while I don't think kids standing on dogs is a good thing either, it doesn't rise to the level of pissing me off that what ISIS is doing to women and children does. THAT I have a hard time reading about without grabbing my rifle and hopping the next flight to Kurdistan.

    My thoughts on Palin's purpose of posting the photo, ether...

    1. She has no commonsense and didn't realize it would invoke criticism, and she actually thought it was cute or
    2. She isn't that stupid and wanted to stir up some BS drama to get attention


    Maybe I could be forgiving if number one is true, because at least she wouldn't knowingly be putting her son in the center of negative attention.


    And assuming number one is the truth, how could somebody not know that letting your child stand on a dog would cause some backlash? I understand people make mistakes, but this seems incredibly stupid.

Its easy to assume that she didn't, as many here obviously did, but I know that as a parent I've done similar. My kids have occasionally done something wrong but it was so cute at the time that I just had to get a picture of it and then after I took the picture I admonished them to not do such again (usually explaining why it was a nono). For example smearing their poop all over the walls or as they got older coloring on the walls. Perhaps minor examples compared to the OP but you get the idea. So I really think that this is much ado about nothing. I mean her other kids don't go around hurting animals so I'm pretty sure that Mrs. Palin does her best at teaching the kids right from wrong.


    This.

    Most of them are spammed votes. Not nearly that many people have actually voted. 100 to 1 that someone is logged off (or doesn't have account) and keeps voting over and over in order to tilt the vote. Stupid imo.

    I wouldn't be surprised if she wanted to stir up controversy, but then again she also strikes me as someone who could be genuinely oblivious to the fact that this would rub some people the wrong way. In either case, she's a hot mess - which is no surprise. I just hope she teaches her son not to do that so he doesn't get hurt doing it to the wrong dog.

    Sorry, I actually realized how that must have sounded, but I knew if I edited my comment you'd never see it so I had to wait for your response, which was no disappointment (what's a "celebutician" or do I want to know? ). I didn't mean to say, at all, that you dislike animals or whatever. I'm just aware that your one of those people who likes people better than animals, you weirdo.

    Believe me, I am well aware of this affliction I have as an animal lover, especially a right wing animal lover and when I say that someone does not see animals the way I do, it likely means they have the healthier perspective.

    I will say though, that of course, women and children being executed is far worse and far more worthy of concern but if that's your standard, well like 99.5% of what's posted here shouldn't concern you either.

    Sarah Palin once again proving why she is America's #1 idiot. I'm not mad at the kid....but you have to question the mentality of the woman who would not only fail to teach her child that a dog is not a stepping stool....but have the stupidity to post it all over social media. What a complete dumb ass this woman is.
