You appeared in an earlier post to have a problem with Palin resigning.

Obama resigns Senate seat effective Sunday | Reuters
President Obama resigned from the Illinois Senate in November 2004 following his election to the U.S. Senate.

Governor Palin resigned being governor of Alaska citing ethics investigations and a desire to avoid being a lame duck governor.

Two entirely different circumstances. Obama could hardly continue as an Illinois state senator once he started serving as a U.S. senator. Palin could have fulfilled her term but decided not to.

I do not disagree......yet, it is still resigning.

Palin did what she felt was best for her and Alaska.

Easy, Palin did what she thought was best for Alaska, it is called ethics, where you put others above yourself, something a liberal cannot understand.

Palin sold out for money and is clearly proven by her actions. To use her name, and ethics in the same sentence is pretty funny. She's a kinda cute trash talking divisive political pundit. No more, no less.

I'm sure this old Carpenter spelled something wrong too. I think it's funny how political sheeple use the term liberal in a derogatory manner. You don't know me, or how I vote or feel about issues, but run right for your label, because I refuse to watch Fox news, or any cable news for that matter.

Not everyone follows a single political party. Some actually can think for themselves. Just to give you an idea, I admire Jan Brewer. However, I also respect labor and it's time for a minimum wage increase.

Then it is Palin's success that bothers you.

That is going to occur, and raising labor costs increases how fast it pays for itself, which speeds up WHEN it happens.

Corporate Capital Expenditures are all about what meets the payback period limits.
