    Palin's attempt to bann books is a chilling fact about how she views the world. On top of that she tried to destroy someone's career over banning books. She is a bad person

    Assuming that you mean "liar"... Juice was expressing an opinion, which can't be a lie anymore than it can be considered the truth. It is an opinion.

    We all still get to have those, yes?

    She tried to fire the librarian because she didn't have her full support. What the hell does than mean? A librarian has to give her full support to the Mayor?

    That smacks of a petty little tyrant in this case in a skirt.

    no she stated two "facts": 1) Palin tried to ban books and 2) she tried to ruin someone's career. I am saying that both of those statements are lies. She never tried to ban a book. She asked about the procedure to ban books. If you can provide me with the title of a specific book she tried to have banned, kindly do so.

    as to trying to ruin someone's career, I guess you could take the view that firing someone is doing that, but I think that's really pushing it-in my opinion which, yes, we still get to have.

    Who asks about the procedure to ban books? That's a pretty fucking weird question, and seems to indicate she was at least thinking about banning books. Who thinks about banning books? That's a bizarre thing to be thinking.

    I suppose if one asks the procedure for lynching a black man, it means they didn't actually do the lynching. But just thinking and asking about the procedure is pretty damn bizarre.

    My bad for assuming again... I figured you were referring to the "she's a bad person" statement because the other statements are easy enough to prove or disprove, which you did not attempt to do.
