Sarah Palin´s oldest son, Track, is getting divorced just 18 months after tying the knot, in another blow to the family values advocate. The 23-year-old and his wife, Britta, 22, jointly filed for divorce in an Alaskan court this week, according to TMZ. The couple married in May, 2011, and just three months later, Britta gave birth to a little girl, Kyla. The news of Track´s marriage breakdown comes after his sister Bristol´s very public relationship dramas. Bristol, who famously got pregnant in 2008 at age 18, was twice engaged to high school boyfriend Levi Johnston,
Much as I love Sarah Palin, I have to wonder if she might regret having sent her children to public school.
The older daughters´ behavior suggests, to me, that they were saturated in the decadent pop culture that reigns in public schools.
By the time my youngest son was ready for junior high, it began to dawn on me how pernicious the public school atmosphere had become. Hence I took him out of there and homeschooled him. Best thing I ever did.
FTA: "Sarah Palin´s oldest son, Track, is getting divorced just 18 months after tying the knot, in another blow to the family values advocate."
This is sad. The LSM media won´t leave Sarah Palin and her family alone and these are the consequences. There is nothing but snark in this beginning sentence & put down of the Tea Party advocate. Instead of using what limited talents these writers [drones] and editors have to the current real problems of North Korea, Middle East, and that stupid "fiscal cliff" drama. Oh, Benghazi and PIAPS.
There´s nothing like being judged by Satan´s servants.
Anyone who dares to advocate morality is immediately and relentlessly accused of hypocrisy. This gives people who´ve rejected God a smug feeling. It also lets them feel that there is no such thing as right and wrong.
I normally find the ones who are the most critical of these types of personal activities have had more than the average share of same in their lives and in their immediate family. The Daily Mail knows putting Sarah Palin´s name in a headline is worth $$$$$$$$$ to them.
I feel for her and feel badly for her son and his wife and baby. These things happen, and sometimes no matter how hard to try to instill the right values, it happens anyway. Two of our children divorced within 2 years of marriage. I guess according to #2 we are losers too. No, we are not and the Palins are not losers, either...people make mistakes, and today´s society tends to not take marriage as seriously as the older generations did. This doesn´t make me think any less of the Palins.
Re #2 -- Track served our country in the middle east. Yeah, what a loser.
I´ve raised 5 & they will tear your heart out before their generation decides to grow up. 30 is the new 20 for maturity in America. Kinda hard to escape the culture -- even home-schooling.
We sent one to a military school his junior year to save him. Sent our daughter to a girl´s school in Texas where she had to use leather gloves to work the farm. Sent one son to a Christian, then private school. Sent another to a 90-day rehab when he was 28.
They are all doing wonderful today -- but I am grateful we weren´t famous & every move scrutinized by the stone-throwers.
What the Daily Mail could have said instead is that Sarah Palin and her husband are an example of loving and sturdy parenthood and that they don´t ask their children to present a perfect appearance to win that - they accept their children frailties and all, and just find a happy way forward. This could have been a story about Love. It would have been a true one.

Very, very well said, #7. The hatred and not-so-subtle faux condescension spewed from some of these smug and truly obnoxious posters toward Sarah Palin and her family make me wonder how vicious they must be away from the internet boards. They have no class whatsoever and I don´t think I´ve ever come across people more full of hate in my life, on or off the internet.
The Palin family is by no means a perfect one. Neither is mine. I’m guessing neither is yours. But, which family is? What I like most about the Palin family is that they don’t go around murdering their own babies, especially the traditional-calendar-disrupting ones and call it… “a choice.”
He that is without sin, let him cast the first stone. The kids made a mistake, got married to give the little one an honorable birthright and now are divorcing. Leave them alone. It isn´t any of our business.
Bless your heart #23. Knowledge of birth control does not translate into avoiding pregnancy in the world of humans, particularly young humans. Youth is often caught up in the throes of rebellion. Rebellion effectively separates them from applying knowledge, reason and wisdom (ie Common Sense) to their behavior and anticipating the consequences. In most people, the effects of rebellion diminish with age (except in the case of liberals, who seem impervious to the onset of wisdom).

Please, leave Sarah alone. She is running for nothing. What she speaks (according the the MFM) amounts to nothing. Like many hard working women, her children were taught in government controlled schools...where they learned how to wear condoms correctly, how to project heir ´other´ gender side, etc. Her children are not perfect, but her children will hopefully learn from their mistakes. Sarah is still standing tall. Allow her to do so. She is one GOP who is afraid not nothing. Perhaps her children helped to mold our Sarah into the woman she is today. The Lord works in mysterious ways.
There are tragedies in every family no matter who you are or where you were born. It´s very human. Things just don´t go well for many because of bad choices whether they are sexual or not. No family is immune. Yet here some of us are making snarky comments about what almost all of us have suffered only we were allowed the luxury of suffering in private where the obtrusive press didn´t care.
Wall Street´s third down day in a row pushed stocks to their lowest levels in a month as investors worried that the end may be nearing for the Federal Reserve´s support for the economy. The Fed´s stimulus efforts have been a key factor in the bull market that has pushed the Standard & Poor´s 500 index 25 higher percent this year. Investors know it will end sooner or later. But the timing, and the fallout, are uncertain. Until this month, stocks had risen for eight weeks straight. But stocks posted their biggest declines in five weeks on Wednesday, and dropped
Approximately 800 school children waving American flags greeted the Wreaths Across America convoy at their school on Wednesday in Middletown, N.J., for a wreath laying ceremony and tribute honoring World War II veterans who fought in the Battle of the Bulge. The WAA caravan included over 10 trailer trucks filled with wreaths. The group is laying wreaths to honor and remember the country’s veterans during its weeklong journey, which began in Maine on Dec. 7. Its final stop will be at Arlington National Cemetery on Dec. 14, where at least 100,000 wreaths will be laid on the graves of veterans.
(Video) Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) outburst Thursday at outside conservative groups is going viral on the Internet. Boehner voiced incredulity Thursday that the same groups that pushed Republicans to shut down the government later said they knew the strategy wouldn´t succeed in defunding ObamaCare. “Are you kidding me?!” Boehner exclaimed at the GOP´s press conference at the Capitol. It’s the second day in a row Boehner has criticized the groups. People began tweeting that Boehner’s outburst would make a good Gif.
"The Price Is Right" host Bob Barker is endorsing lobbyist David Jolly, one of two Republicans vying for deceased Rep. Bill Young´s (R-Fla.) seat. Barker makes the endorsement in a new campaign ad that will run during a special "The Price Is Right" episode on Thursday. The ad could help Jolly win over perhaps the key demographic in the GOP primary race: seniors. According to National Journal´s Almanac of American Politics, more than a fifth of Young´s district is over 64 — the target demographic for "The Price Is Right." The ad is set to run Thursday as Barker makes a
Paul Ryan wants everyone in D.C. to remember the Rolling Stones. “There’s this older British guy who says ‘you can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes you just might find, you get what you need,” he said on Thursday’s Morning Joe with a smile. Ryan is fighting for the budget he negotiated with Washington’s Sen. Patty Murray (D), but not everyone is happy. Major tea party-allied groups came out in advance of the deal to condemn it. Tea party darlings Sens. Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, all expressed disappointment in the deal, as well
On Tuesday, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., revealed their budget plan to the world. I would say it was immediately met with complaints, but those complaints started before it was introduced. Is it perfect? Absolutely not. But are there other plans? No. Outside groups called for opposing it before they’d read it, Members of Congress said they’d vote against it before they knew what was in it. I’d like to take these people with me to buy lottery tickets since they seem to have some form of clairvoyance. I get the anger of conservatives, I’m right
Washington- American Airlines kicked off its freshly minted status as the world´s largest carrier Thursday with an aggressive order for $3.9 billion worth of regional jets from Brazil´s Embraer and Canada´s Bombardier. Three days after completing its merger with US Airways, the new American said it had inked deals to buy 30 CJR900 NextGen aircraft from Bombardier, and 60 Embraer E175s. Bombardier said its deal was worth $1.42 billion, while Embraer put a $2.5 billion value on its order. American also has options to buy an additional 40 CJR900s and 90 E175s. American said the 76-seat regional jets ordered will
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there.

When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
