Yeah, she shoots wolves and encourages others to shoot them to control their population. If they shoot the wolves, there are more moose for her to shoot. I'm not really into this, I think they should let nature take its course and let the wolves have their moose. I have numerous other reasons and disagreements that would explain why I generally don't like her, but I don't really want to debate that because I know she's going to have some die-hard fans showing up to give me a piece of their mind. But I agree with you, shooting wolves like that is wrong. She also wants to pay people to shoot them, too. I don't like the sound of it at all.

If there are any serious supporters of Plain, don't take them seriously.

I take everyone's opinion seriously, she's not the devil, as far as we know. But anyone who really is her supporter, should respect my opinion too, and they shouldn't even think for a second they're going to make me like her.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I respect that.And I expect that I should have a right to my opinion as well.I didn't like Sarah Palin,then when I heard that about her shooting the wolves I didn't like her even more.

I agree with you that I do not like her. I have found that she has no real experience. In fact, I have as much foreign policy from playing strategy war games and living in reality, than she does living "a few miles from Russia". While she seems to be the darling of the "conservatives" this election, how can any sensible american honestly vote for a McCain Palin Ticket. So what if she will be the first Woman Vice President. There are more qualified women to be the VP (and I'm not talking about Hillary either). What we are seeing is the most ridiculous election in recent history. What we are going to get is no real change or answer to our problems, no matter who we pick.

I told my mom one day,"Oh,I see if I live in a place where I can see over and see another country then I am good at foreign policy and qualify to be vice president!" And we started laughing.

I am not a Palin supporter for a lot of reasons but her political views and my political views clash. Sorry I know that you go to church but she is so ultra conservatives I just don't think I could ever like someone like that. Glad to see you back hope you have been well.

It is Ok. Yes,I go to church and I am a christian,but I don't like her or McCain.Iam going to vote for Obama.He knows how it is to have a rough life.He only owns and can afford 1 house,where McCain has so many houses he could not even remember how many he had. Thanks,Iam only on here at the library as much as I can.As soon as I can I will get a working one at my temporary home.I have a laptop,but it is old and does not have enough room to handle wireless and the temporary place iam staying in only has a wireless connection.

I just heard about this on another thread for the first time. It's just one more reason not to like her and there are many. I don't like the ways she always seems to be waiting for the question from the pageant judge. I don't like the fact that she allows her fourteen year old daughter to sign autographs on the campaign trail. I can't stand that she stood there smiling while a member of her audience shouted "kill him" (him meaning Obama). I can't understand why she couldn't name a single magazine she read when Katie Couric asked her to. I don't agree with any of her political stands and I sense that she has little tolerance for mine. I cannot stand the thought of that woman getting closer to the White House than Hillary Clinton could.

She made me so mad at one of the telivised debates she had her baby to her youngest daughter to carry on stage.There are many things I do not like about her and that added another one to the list.

In alaska the over population on wolves is really bad. I like her and my family members in Anchorage Alaska love her and talk about all the great things she's done for the state. Wolves are not cute and cuddly they are a danger in many places in the U.S. When you must exercise animal control you need to consider the pros and cons and what is best for all animals and people. As I understand from my family in areas that wolves are a problem, the real concern is how the wolves attack and threaten the survival of other animals. We have deer hunting around here to control the population. I don't really expect anyone to eat a wolf though I know they did way back when. One thing I admire about her is that she knows how to hunt and grew up in a simple home the way I did. What I love is all she has accomplished in her small town and state and that she has the guts to go up against her own party and get things done right. She's a real go getter and knows what it's like to live on the income most of America is and the way she cut all kinds of perks she herself could have had to give it back to the people. She's got that western humor clean cut that I enjoy listening to her, and she's a mother and a career woman. Although I don't agree with her on all points I still think she is what this country needs.

There are children and adults attacked by pit bulls too,but I do not see the govenor riding in a helicopter shooting them.

Pitt bulls are not running around in packs in the wild. The animal shelters now will not allow anyone to adopt a pit bull unless they have had long term experience with caring for dogs and also ask a ton of questions about the area that you live in and who will be around the dog, due to that type of dogs nature which depends greatly on the person who trains it. I wasn't allowed by the shelter to adopt a pit bull due to living in an apartment building. And a lot of pit bulls are put down just like any other animal that attacks a human being. As much as we would all love to save every living creature it's unrealistic to think it could be possible.

They do not question people like that at the shelters here.There are apartments,HOA's,real estate companies that do not allow pit bulls,rotweilers,german shepherds,doberman pinchers to name a few.

"I heard that Sarah Palin shoots wolves from a helicopter as sport! " You heard wrong. This nonsense was started from state and federal wildlife management practices in controlling wolf populations in the wildest and most remote terrain in our nation. This has nothing to do with her hunting.

If they started that does not mean she has to do the killing thou.I understand that in China they have a birth control law that says after a couple has one child they have to use a form of birth control.They do this to control the human population.If I lived in China and got pregnant by accident the second time,I would not kill my baby just because some management said so.

I object to the hunting of wolves or any animal from a helicopter. My other objection to Palin has to do with something that she said at the Republican convention. It was a comment about reading terrorists their rights, how ridiculous she though that was. This comment got a standing ovation. Scared the hell out of me. It reminds me of Nazi Germany. Maybe today we are going to deny some of our basic rights to suspected terrorists, then tomorrow it will be members of the opposition party and eventually ordinary citizens. Haven't our civil rights been eroded enough already? I'm sure there are other things too but those are the ones that got my attention!

I do like her, but I learn as much as possible about a person instead of relying on what I heard somewhere. Do I agree about the wolves? No, but I also know nothing about Alaska except it has a lot of wilderness and people do rely on hunting. It's also a whole different culture than many of us belong to. Where I'm at we have a number of deer and as a result we also have panthers in the area. I've seen plenty of deer and caught a glimpse of a panther maybe once every five years or so. Deer hunting is allowed in this area at certain times of the year. There seems to be enough left for the big cats. Whether it appears to be the same with the wolves of Alaska, I don't know. Remember, there are people who have their cats put down for peeing on the rug. Are you going to vet offices and protesting? I doubt many are.

Signing the Declaration of Independence - This a cartoon-like picture of a man signing the Declaration of Independence.
I love animals. Thus, that might not be a part of her that I endorse--shooting animals. However, on the other hand, if you eat meat, someone has to kill them. If not you, then someone else. I do like her. She is fresh, intelligent, and brings a powerful and valuable voice to help our country, children, and women. Vote McCain/Pallin.
