First, the story doesn't even make sense.
"Apparently, Levi wanted $300 a month for Tripp's health insurance. Except now we find out that his son doesn't need it. But one wonders how the baby got enrolled in the Curyung Tribal Council, within the Bristol Bay Native Association consortium."
But the poorly scanned and posted document says that Johnson wanted credit for $300 for insurance that he paid.
I hope that you do not consider ZapIt -- a "celebrity" rag to be a reliable source of information. But if so, so be it.
Unless you can provide different information, I'll stick to my claim that Palin is using government funds, though I won't use the "sucking from the government teat" crass statement.
I'm sure that it is a very reliable source. I'm sure that the document been fully vetted for accuracy. The child gets his health insurance from the federal and/or state government.
But you hit a point that is used many times in this forum. Some extremist is presented to be the boogeyman and represent the thought, feelings and actions of the other side. It is a lot easier to link a crazy person to a cause or to label a group than it is to actually have a meaningful, thought-provoking conversation about any particular subject.
I remember one post awhile back when the poster (I'm sorry - I tried looking it up but forgot who it was) said that many of us are too lazy to find the truth. We'd rather just listen when someone says something agreeable. The laziness comes when we close our minds and do not listen to opposing views. Thus there is no growth, but only stagnant minds. The TV media feed into that laziness with providing the least informative and most stimulating broadcasts.
