Sarah Palin´s son Track
and wife, who had baby
three months after getting
married, file for divorce

Daily Mail (UK), by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/12/2012 6:37:51 PM

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,

Track Palin is a private citizen and it´s sad to see anyone divorce. The press would be serving their readers better to see what they can find out about Obama or better yet Benghazi.

Hey #2 - check the statistics. 74% of African American Women are unmarried when they give birth.

Are you calling them losers?

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.

To those of you who feel that way--Good Luck!

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.

"There´s nothing like being judged by Satan´s servants."

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.

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.”

#15, the problem is the media, and the Democrats, are defining family values as being perfect.

By attacking family values, they´re saying they don´t agree with the idea of two-parent families.

Family values is an idea, a goal.

None of us are perfect - only HE is.

Just like family members don´t all think alike, or agree on everything, so why should all Republicans?

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.

The officials said that they had found no clear link to terrorism. There are other criminal reasons, for example drug smuggling, that stolen passports might be used to board a plane. Two names on the passenger manifest of the plane, Malaysia Flight 370, matched passports reported stolen in Thailand, one from an Italian man and the other from an Austrian man, according to foreign governments and NBC News sources.

Neurologist Ben Carson could be 2016’s sleeper presidential contender. You won’t find him in early polls, and he doesn’t make headlines for huddling with top advisers in primary states. Carson is lauded for his plainspoken yet forceful ability to speak clearly about the party’s values. The retired physician rose to prominence after delivering a controversial speech at last year’s National Prayer Breakfast, where he lambasted President Obama and his policies while standing just feet away from the president. Now, his supporters believe Carson, as a black Republican and a true political outsider, could be the one GOP candidate capable of

During his speech to the CPAC crowd on Thursday, Sen.

McCain said he spoke to Cruz about the comments and it was “cordial” but he took specific offense at the remarks concerning Dole. “He can say what he wants to about me and he can say anything he wants to about Mitt,” McCain said,

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage.
