Sarah Palin uses soldier suffering from PTSD to shame college students.

You guys might recognize that meme as it was fairly popular with the Right Wing several years ago.

However as Raw Story points out using it today demonstrates a complete lack of empathy toward that soldier, James Blake Miller, who suffers from PTSD:

Miller, now 32, received a medical discharge from the Marine Corps in 2005 after blacking out while assisting in Hurricane Katrina recovery due to post-traumatic stress issues related to his combat experience in Iraq.

So is Palin suggesting that college students should earn their chance at free college by first getting Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome? Because that seems especially harsh.

Of  course as we know Palin has a long history of using emotionally or mentally damaged military personnel to push her agenda.

And her history of attacking those seeking higher education is equally well known.

This time she just got to combine the two, into one giant insult directed at both.

    She is sick. She has no clue about PTSD. Her son was a juvenile delinquent and enjoyed an elevated status in Iraq, he never was in any type of danger. I know a young man who truly suffers from his service, it is a horrible affliction and he will suffer his entire life. I have read this blog for a long while and this post is the last straw. I hope she rots in Wasilla.

      Not so much that there are minimum GPA requirements, plenty of small and not noteworthy schools take just about anyone who applies and can pay, but, I don't think any of them took the SAT's. Bristol was pregnant and out of school during the year that she would have taken the SAT, and Willow left school a year early on a "tech" certificate so that she could be a hairdresser, certainly no SAT required for that.

      Track, well, he barely graduated if he even did and I seriously doubt if he even did take the SAT that it registered on the level of what is college-worthy.

      Piper will have to sit for the SAT next year, and from what I've heard she's really far behind her classmates and isn't what anyone considers "college material" but just maybe she'll end up at Mat Su College and do some community college work or she'll just do hair, or be a barista or a serial breeder.

  12. All of which raises a few questions.

    1. How many of Sarah's children are combat vets?
    2. How many of Sarah's children suffer from PTSD?
    3. How many of Sarah's children have attend, are now attending, or plan to attend college?

    Answer to all three questions is ZERO. Not a single one. NOT ONE.

    Meanwhile, Sarah has realized she's a loser, her children are losers, everything she touches turns to shit, and nothing will change that. However, don't expect her to stop her pathetic, futile attempts to appear relevant.

    Then, there's this:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-mar-a-lago-state-department_us_58fe4e4fe4b06b9cb9193b03?section=us_politics

    "The U.S. State Department’s ShareAmerica website posted an article on April 4 celebrating Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate with glitzy photos and flowery descriptions of the “ornate Jazz Age house,” which was “designed with Old-World Spanish, Venetian and Portuguese influences.” The piece was featured the next day on the websites and social media accounts of various American embassies abroad, all of which went largely overlooked until Monday, when the posts sparked a furor online."

    Texas chose the fossil fuel CEO behind the Dakota Access to be in charge of their Parks and Wildlife.

    https://thinkprogress.org/kelcy-warren-parks-and-wildlife-5d89a09e50a

    "Warren has been serving on the commission since November 2015, when he was nominated by Gov. Greg Abbott (R) to help steward the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department — the stated mission of which is to “manage and conserve the natural and cultural resources of Texas” and ensure present and future generations have access to hunting, fishing, and outdoor recreation opportunities."

    (Yeah, that isn't going to be good. But at least he'll only be ruining Texas.)

    The State Department has hired an ex-Fox anchor to be their spokesperson.

      The State Department pulled it down, after the fact of coarse.

      What do we expect after Kelly Ann Conway tells people on air to buy Ivanka's clothes and was "reprimanded" for it. Once again after the fact.

      If you have 200 thousand dollars to blow you to can be a member of the "special" people. The cost used to be 100 thousand but that was before you could sit in the same dining room with President Orange he of the comb over.

      We have Dumps kids with offices in the White House meeting with the head of China, Ivanka's kids sing him a song in Chinese and she gets rewarded more contracts to do her business there. Ivanka has three, yes THREE Chinese nanny's who are teaching her kids Chinese.

      We have First Lady who poses like the ex model she is in every photo and that is all Trump and she cares about.I am afraid people will accept this as the norm when we live in a Kardashion reality tv society.

      Think of the backlash Eleanor Roosevelt would get today on her looks. Really how far have we progressed as women when we are still subject to this crap constantly.

      Number one plastic surgery is boob jobs. We are bombarded by how to lose weight after having a baby,we see the way to get ahead is by using your looks [ Fox News] I guess the Candy Crowley's who had a brain are a thing of the past.

      Men do not face this near as much as women. For Dog's sake teach your daughters to be proud of what they have and who they are.

      Yeah, this may be a rant but i see it every day even within my own family and friends. Step Daughter In Law starving herself and doing yoga because she was so determined to be skinny. That is not to say let yourself go but women really need to give themeselves a break.

    Did Track not take advantage of what the military offers? Is Sarah not a millionaire?

    What is she trying to say here. She just has a bug up her ass that not one of her kids deemed it necessary to go to college and not only that none of them had the brains or the motivation, and why should they when Mama handed them money so they could sit on their asses.

    Beauty school is what her daughters took because they were into hair and clothes they knew they never had to earn enough to be on their own. I am not putting down earning a living this way but the Palin girls worked when they felt like it.

    A lot of stylists work five days a week but the Palin girls were always taking time off whenever they felt like it. We all wish we had a job like that.

    Remember when Bristol and Willow were going to open their own beauty shop? Remember when Willow said she did not want to work weekends? I believe that was on Barstools short lived reality show. Joan Rivers offered Willow a chance on Wife Swap and Willow turned it down.

    Palin's kids have been given more oppurtunities than most kids will ever have and they were too stupid to use it. They are dumb, boring and spoiled with a domineering Mother and a lazy ass as a Father.

      Now why would anyone who isn't shallow be jealous of that. Would you rather brag about how much money you have or how far you have come all on your own to earn it.I guess it's a matter of priorities and pride and yes morals.If my kids WORK for their pay that is a matter of pride, if i hand them undeserving oppurtunities that is not. Simple so called old fashioned principles. Why would anyone be jealous if their kids have never been in a public fight or had a son that beat his girlfriend or a daughter that had to have plastic surgery because her Mother never taught her a real value system.I guess if you choose to believe that money makes everyone jealous that is your peragative. I will ammend that to say neither did their Dad. Let's not put this all on Sarah she does have a husband sort of.

      When you make your money as Palin has by spouting family values and then have to suffer the exposure of your own family not living up to what you preach it may be a hard pill to swallow when you have sold a Christian life style and you have no compassion for other family's with a down syndrome child because you have the money to do whatever you want and you never get involved with any organization that helps others with down syndrome children. If you paint a picture that is all rainbows and lollypops you do a disservice to the real world.

    This is very cool.

    In a dramatic response to a power-grab by Republicans in the North Carolina legislature, a Republican judge resigned today to circumvent efforts to strip power from the Democratic governor.

    ...However, before the legislature could vote to override Governor Cooper’s veto of House Bill 239, Judge McCullough resigned 36 days prior to his forced retirement. This allowed the appointment of Judge Arrowood at 9:45 a.m. this morning.

    “I did not want my legacy to be the elimination of a seat and the impairment of a court that I have served on,” Judge McCullough explained.

    Newly sworn-in Judge John Arrowood is the first openly gay member of the North Carolina Court of Appeals.

      Well, it takes all 46 to scramble for clues that do not exist. Seven are all that is needed when the Russian traitors are so open about their activities!!

    Resistance inspires 1000 percent increase in women running for office

    Women have not allowed the election of Donald Trump to keep them down. The number of women newly inspired to run for office has already reached 12,000 — an increase of more than 1000 percent since the last election cycle — and it shows no signs of abating.

    Barack Obama is betting that young people can save America — and his legacy

    ...“I'm spending a lot of time thinking about: ‘What is the most important thing I can do for my next job?’” Obama said on Monday, in his first public remarks since leaving the presidency on January 20.

    Obama ticked through a whole host of problems he might make his first priority before identifying what he said will be his No. 1 task in the years ahead — giving young Americans the tools to “to take up the baton” as leaders in politics and business.

    “What I'm convinced of is that — although there are all kinds of issues that I care about, and all kinds of issues that I intend to work on — the single most important thing I can do is to help in any way I can to prepare the next generation of leadership to take up the baton, and to take their own crack at changing the world,” Obama told a small crowd at the University of Chicago.

    It’s worth paying attention to precisely why Obama views helping young leaders as the way he can have the biggest impact in the world without the executive branch at his disposal.

    A transcript of Obama’s remarks on Monday follows.

      I can't wait for my dad's fat racist bible humpin' generation to die off.
      Hard, mean spirited? Perhaps. But I mean it. The world will be a better place.
      Good for Pres OBama. I think he feels the same way.

      Please don't lump all older people into your Dad's category. My Dad will be 96 and is and always has been a proud progressive Democrat, and yes, he was progressive before anyone started using that term.Plus I think his 7 yrs( he stayed in Europe after the war to hunt Nazi's) in WWII surely paid for whatever benefits he received as a GI on the home front.

  37. You don't get free college through the G.I. Bill anymore. It's just matching funds. And if you don't contribute, it's nothing.

    Plenty of lies told by recruiters. Like you'll get citizenship or a green card of you serve. One deported veteran says they only way he can re-enter the US is in a pine box after he's died. The he get's a veteran's funeral and a piece of American soil just big enough for his casket.

      @1:25 AM How does Track pay child support for 2 kids with no job? When has Bristol had a real 40 hr per week job? When have Sarah and Todd showed up at a job in the past 4 years? Blow that crap somewhere else, it doesn't fly here.

      Yes, all the financial benefits Willow gets are for doing Baldy's hair. It's very lucrative hair- what there is of it.

    Sarah Palin what are you talking about? You attended the University of Alaska for free. You have two degrees, one on your back and the other one is face down/ass up.

    That bitch needs to decide once and for all if she's going to be an antagonist or follow the God she claims to in her "daily devotional."

    Obviously Mrs Todd Palin, unemployed fishwife from Wasilla, does not come from a military family if she thinks anyone in my family that utilized the educational bennies from the GI Bill got anything for "free".

    I'm holding out hope for Piper. You know Sarah will turn on her tacky Payless heels & start bragging if her last born gets into a university. If Piper goes to UAA she won't have to pay much so no need for military service. What about a school in Austin?

    A commenter on Huffington post said Sarah admitted to sexually assaulting her younger sister.

    Hey Sarah! That explains a lot!

    Poor Molly. No wonder she thought others were going to hurt her.

    Nope. Camped out sitting up in front of the door so no one came in.

    To some, sleep is needed.

    And considering WHO it was, and WHAT that one has been thru?

    Yeah...Molly slept fine, while that one not so much, and got wacked in the head by the door.

    What are you doing on the floor?

    Uh...it was hot and it's cooler down here...
