Her TV show is called "Real American Stories", that has nothing to do with the Republican party or the NRA, to my knowledge. I would suspect that LL Cool J is NOT a Republican and I'd be surprised if he was a member of the NRA.

Don't get me wrong, I think she's an idiot and I marvel that she ever got elected to Governor, but let's not start spreading innacuracies, here. The TV show and the dinner/seminar/whatever appear to be completely separate things.

I got a chuckle out of the teen pregnancy thing, too. Although, maybe she'll talk about where she might have gone wrong, or the challenges her family faced due to the teen pregnancy? Who knows...

Maybe she will use her visits to announce her run for President of the United States.
She will restore gun owner rights in America

Sarah Palin for President!

Hey y'all I haven't met a perfect adult yet, although some profess to be, because we all have skeletons and everyone makes mistakes, just look at the Panthers. People can only express ideas because they suffered through an experience so give some people a break. Let's face it look at those who assumed "change" was going to happen in D.C., but of course not the "change" they assumed. From 1 to 13 trillion in debt in 15 months.

I don't know where you're getting the 1 to 13 trillion numbers...but that's way off. Yes, the debt has gone up - way up in fact - but I do believe that the steps the government took (starting under the former administration) helped to keep this country from an even greater financial catastrophe. No, not all of the money was spent well...but on the whole, things like the TARP, government intervention into the MBS market, etc were good. Heck, the government is starting to recoup a good bit of the TARP money, is earning interest as an investor in MBS's, etc...

And as far as gun rights, I haven't seen this administration do anything to dismantle the 2nd amendment, despite the fears of many.

We often learn more from our failures than our successes. Parents are no exception!

I'm by no means a Palin fan, but I can't even begin to understand the over-the-top, irrational hatred some people have for this woman. No, she's not perfect. However, I can't seem to recall her making a claim to that effect. It seems every flaw, regardless of severity, is presented as stand-alone justification to crucify this woman. I just don't get it.

Anyhoo... I'll be at this convention with my Dad and several friends. It will be a "blast!"

well , i dare say that most of us did not have to learn that lesson
about our children. we knew that when you allow a daugther to have a live-in boyfriend
it is a 100% sure thing that they are having sex. she seriously failed at looking
out for her childs best interests even while she still touted abstinence as the best policy.

while I don't have over the top hate for this Palin , I do have to wonder about people that
listen to her thinking she has anything to teach us about teenage pregnancy.
she did/does claim abstinence but could not even enforce that at home!

I want to hear from parents that have been very succesful in bringing up wholesome,
healthy children.

Then you can talk to my parents 50% of the time. Literally, 2 of my siblings are holy terrors (drugs, crime, lots-o-kids with lots-o-people.)

My other brother and I were/are "angels." (Not my choice of words...)

Why the difference? Choices made by each of us. After a certain age, parenting has little to do with it. It's up to each of us to decide what kind of person we are going to be. Palin's daughter made choices that caused her to be a single mom.
