Third grade is the time when most students learn about Fractions. In First Grade students learn the logical reason that apples can’t be compared to oranges. They are different colors, different types of fruit, they grow in different parts of the country, and some people eat the skin of an apple, but nobody eats the orange peal. In Kindergarten most students learn the importance of telling the truth and not being misleading about providing information. Evidently Sarah or Bristol Palin never learned these invaluable lessons. They have proven themselves to be uninformed, uneducated, and incapable of simple analysis.
Bristol has posted a condemnation of Hillary’s proposed family leave policy on her blog. Sarah posted a link to the article of Bristol on her Facebook. Bristol explains that she does understand that “Hillary’s proposed plan guarantees 12 weeks of paid family and medical leave to care for a new child or seriously ill family member. Beyond this government mandate, it also mandates that the person taking leave get at least 2/3 of their current wages.” Thus Bristol admits that she understands that Hillary’s proposal would be to allow a parent more weeks of leave, but the parent would receive less than full salary. Bristol expresses her dismay explaining that this policy leaves her “speechless.” “All of these people, Bristol says, are yelling everything from “free birth control” to “free college.”
Does Bristol not realize why complaining about “free birth control” and “free college” make her look like a fool? If she had had free birth control, maybe she wouldn’t have had so many children out of wedlock that she surely can’t support on part-time wages earned as a dermatology assistant.
If she’d attended college perhaps she could have gotten a better job than working as a dermatology assistant for a doctor whose name means masturbation, with a friend who looks more like a porn star than a dermatology assistant.
But here’s the real problem. Bristol admits that Trump has a plan for maternity leave. However her first mistake is to think it is a six week plan. According to Ivanka, Trump’s daughter, and the author of his maternity leave plan, mothers would receive 8 weeks of paid leave.
Under Ivanka/Donald’s plan a married mother would receive 8 weeks of full pay as their maternity leave. Under Hillary’s plan the mother or father would receive 2/3 of their salary for 12 weeks. That means that a married mother under Trump’s plan making $100.00 per week would get 8 weeks of pay, or $800.00. Under Hillary’s plan a parent making $100.00 per week, would get 2/3 of 12 weeks of pay, or $800.00.
Ivanka was specifically asked if Trump employees currently receive an 8 week paid leave. Ivanka said they do. The truth is that Trump employees don’t have any maternity leave benefits. The Trump plan, which hasn’t been written down, andwould supposedly go into effect if he were elected, seems to benefit only married women, not stay at home fathers, or single mothers. It’s questionable that any such plan would actually be implemented if Trum were elected, as his won companies don’t allow any leave.
Even Bristol admits that she took four weeks of maternity leave when Sailor was born. Bristol reportedly returned to work the very end of January of 2016. If she gave birth in November, as she likely did, then she would have had 8 weeks of leave.
It’s also disingenuous to suggest that Bristol has an ordinary job. In the last twelve months Bristol has moved to Kentucky, moved back to Alaska, and taken at least three trips to Hawaii.
