Sarah Palin Not Backing Down: Join the Live Chat

Sarah Palin is bashing the Federal Reserve and its Chairman Ben Bernanke - bashing and not backing down - even when the facts prove her wrong. We're keeping them honest. Plus, Pres. Obama speaks to the Muslim world and more.

Scroll down to join the live chat during the program. It's your chance to share your thoughts on tonight's headlines. Keep in mind, you have a better chance of having your comment get past our moderators if you follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Keep it short (we don't have time to read a "book")
2) Don't write in ALL CAPS (there's no need to yell)
3) Use your real name (first name only is fine)
4) No links
5) Watch your language (keep it G-rated; PG at worst - and that includes $#&*)

    @Mike, formerly from Syracuse, "The 3 killers had their pictures included in their HS yearbook AFTER it was known they were accused. Huge flap. here in NH."

    Why didn't they get the death penalty? They certainly deserve it!

    On Elizabeth Smart's case – the kidnapper's plea of insanity -

    There is too much use of insanity plea. To some degree, all sociopaths are "insane." No one in their "right mind" commits these horrible crimes. But they should not be given an out or commutation of sentence because of "insanity" plea when they kidnap people, rape people, kill etc.
    Also, when unconscionable acts like the one we are seeing are committed, punishment should be steep and justice swift. Justice delayed is justice denied.
    My heart goes out to Elizabeth Smart. That kid needs some hugs and some serious recoup time and therapy.

    Is that a real music group they alluded to? Do those members feel any responsibility for inspiring such behavior?

    I've never been on a cruise before, but even with incidents like the one off of Mexico, I'd like to try it! We should do a '360 bloggers cruise'. Fun!

    @Gloria,
    "That calls for the death penalty!"
    I agree! ~ for ALL of them!!
    I doubt that they have any remorse for what they did...

    Using a machete?? That word makes me think of a tool you use to get through thick jungles in South America. Another heinous crime. When does the madness stop?

    Another Senseless murder case by young people.
    The judge was right, they all belong in a cage for the rest of their lives (although i understood from the report that two of them got pleas "deals").

    When we talk about "music" influencing violent behavior, it seems to me we could argue that positive and kind behavior would exist as a result of consistent exposure to maybe something like the Sound of Music...over and over and over, don't you think?

    @Sue from Syracuse, "I think it is important for any elected official coming in on the promise to reduce debt to have at least one specific target program."

    I was talking about specifics, but I think Paul mentioned cutting back Obamacare.

    I don't know, Lori and Emily...just bored lives? Meaningless lives? Zero empathy for sure. Without souls, it would seem.

    it is fascinating to see the extremes between what people consider to be a "thrill" – i suppose the same "satisfaction" stimuli must be at work but the actions that lead to that are SO different – disgusting, but fascinating

    They are sociopaths.

    This story is another awful crime I can't comprehend. Senseless.

    That calls for the death penalty!

    Should have been death sentence.

    November 9, 2010 at 10:49 pm |
  20. Mike, formerly from Syracuse

    They should get death.

    That is so awful.

    I would have given all of these beings, death for this crime.

    November 9, 2010 at 10:48 pm |
  24. Sue from Syracuse

    That is so gruesome account. I cringe.
    These people should get absolutely no leeway.

    How can anyone get a "thrill" from murdering someone?

    What makes people do these things?

    The 3 killers had their pictures included in their HS yearbook AFTER it was known they were accused. Huge flap. here in NH.

    Anderson, you should post your top 10 restaurants in New Orleans on the website, so when we get down there, we can check them out.

    November 9, 2010 at 10:46 pm |
  29. Emily

    Wow, 19-years old and committed that horrific crime?
    "A cage" is too good for him, and insult to animals.

    Tough on crimes is what we need. Dont give easy outs.

    @Emily, "@Jo Ann, I wonder why The New Black Panther case has been ignored by the DOJ?"

    Because the Obama administration does not want it investigated.

    November 9, 2010 at 10:45 pm |
  32. Gloria, Brooklyn, NY

    Thank for the update of New Orleans' restaurant guide, Anderson. Great!

  33. Jo Ann, North Royalton, Ohio

    @Libby, "The Black Panther group is yet another big red herring dreamed up by a group of radio hosts on the Repuplic Party's side."

    Didn't you see the video? When someone is standing in front of a polling place with a weapon it is intimidation and should be fully investigated especially when their leader said white babies should be killed. That wasn't made up by any "group".

    @Casey,
    That's funny! One Cruise that I would not want to be sailing on...for 3-hours, or any amount of time.

    November 9, 2010 at 10:44 pm |
  35. Samantha Rowley - Nashville, TN

    @ Casey Jones
    Too funny! While they are waiting to be towed into port, I'll bet the passengers are having fun on board. There's a lot to do on those ships. It just extends the vacation a little longer. 🙂

    I hope Cruise people are getting out fast as possible, My heart goes to people, they were stranded in the ocean.

    Anderson, my wife has been complaining for many months that food costs are going up and up. Sorry but I believe her over your Palin story.

    Hayward was very flippant with his remarks.
    (Saying that if he has taking "acting" in school, perhaps he'd been better prepared to deal with the media, etc.)

    That Carnival Cruise Ship reminds me of Gilligan's Island......a three-hour tour, a three-hour tour

    @Samantha Rowley, I agree. I read his speech in India - it is so encouraging.. I wish he could give a GENUINE (in-touch) and ENCOURAGING speech to the youth of USA.

    November 9, 2010 at 10:40 pm |
  41. Samantha Rowley - Nashville, TN

    President Obama's speech was filled with optimism, something I'd like to hear more of in these days and times.

    Great speech President Obama.

    Thank you Anderson, for showing a large part of President Obama's speech in Indonesia.

    November 9, 2010 at 10:38 pm |

    I think there are too many speeches and not enough action.

    I couldn't believe what Tony Hayward had to say!

    It's good to hear a more positive message directed toward the Muslim world.

    That's good speech I have, I agree with President Obama.

    This speech seems like a rerun.

    Anderson, you are so right about Sarah Palin. She has a pattern of lashing back immediately and with sarcasm at anyone who disagrees with her. It is a form of bullying and intimidation – the problem is it works. People back away from the criticism. The trouble is she may bully her way into the presidency if people don't wake up. Good luck

    lisal,
    I assume these hearing would cost money....they also cost money when the Democrats under Henry Waxman were conducting hundreds of investigations.
