Candie’s Foundation Statement on Bristol Palin Compensation

Posted by joshpainter on April 7, 2011

– by Josh Painter

The leftists and their media lapdogs have their panties all in a bunch over the fact that Bristol Palin was well paid by The Candies Foundation as a teen ambassador. In response to their whining, the foundation has released this statement:

For ten years, The Candie’s Foundation has been working to prevent teen pregnancy by producing and funding celebrity-driven print, television, radio and online public service announcements. Ms. Palin was compensated for her work with the foundation, which included appearing in video and print PSAs, two town hall meetings, and numerous media interviews.

The message of the foundation about teen pregnancy prevention has generated more than ONE BILLION media impressions – tremendous reach for any teen pregnancy prevention campaign. We know that Ms. Palin’s work has had a positive effect on teens. In a recent independent national survey of 1,000 teens that compared a Bristol Palin PSA with those of another national teen pregnancy organization that use non-famous teens, more than twice as many teens (57% vs. 27%) said Bristol’s PSA “got my attention”, three times as many (41% vs. 11%) said it was “powerful”, and more than twice as many (38% vs. 16%) said it was “memorable”.

Bristol Palin is one of dozens of celebrities who has worked with the foundation. She has been a courageous and powerful partner to the foundation as we attempt to discourage teen pregnancy.

Curious, is it not, how the left loses its mud because a non-profit organization, which depends on donations freely given, paid Bristol Palin in six figures. Yet these same leftists think it’s all right that millions of dollars of taxpayer money is being used to kill innocent infants in the womb. That’s what passes for morality on the left these days.

Teens flock to California church to hear Bristol Palin

Posted by joshpainter on February 13, 2011

The Whittier Daily News reports that teens from across the Southwest made their way to Our Saviour Lutheran Church in Arcadia, California Saturday to hear Bristol Palin speak about the dangers facing today’s youth:

The speech was part of Lovefest, an annual two-day church event that focuses on teens and values. The event held in a church tent familiar to the revival circuit, where youngsters listened to Palin’s speech.

From there, the children broke into smaller classes to focus on a array of teen issues – from dating to safely navigating the Internet.

Palin was brought in to serve as a role model and to talk candidly about her experience as a teenage mom. Children came from across Southern California and from as far away as Nevada, church officials said.

“She came right out and said, `I’ve been criticized and called an hypocrite because I was taking a stance on abstinence and I said I don’t want you to go through this,”‘ said Dave Sweeney, co-founder of the Love Fest. “She implored young people to not to listen to those who say abstinence is not a big deal.”

[…]

“We didn’t want this to turn into a political event,” said Roger Sonnenberg, pastor of Our Saviour Lutheran Church.

But there was no denying the effect of Palin’s star power on the children.

“I liked her story and the way she presented her opinion without forcing her ideas on us,” said Haley Gould, 17, of Glendora.

John Hayward: Bristol Palin Is Uninvited

Posted by joshpainter on January 28, 2011

– by Josh Painter
*
John Hayward weighs in on the recent episode of what Jonah Goldberg rightly calls Liberal Fascism at Washington University that we wrote about here and here:

The nominal reason given by the campus conformity police was that inviting Palin to speak would be too expensive.

[…]

A November 2010 report from the Student Life newspaper at Washington University said that the Green Action environmentalist group paid disgraced Obama cabinet member Van Jones a $5000 honorarium, which is the maximum allowed for appeals made over the summer. Green Action tried to get another $2500 for him, but the Student Union Treasury voted them down. If Van Jones is worth five to seven thousand dollars, Bristol Palin for $20,000 is the deal of the century…

[…]

Another claim made by the campus left is that Palin was “too controversial” to speak, a consideration that obviously doesn’t apply to people like Van Jones. You can see how a young mother discussing the perils of teen pregnancy would be more controversial than the views of a self-described Communist who was run out of the most radical Administration in modern history, because he entertained the notion that George Bush was the real villain behind the 9/11 attacks.

Elevating this line of reasoning to totalitarian art, Sean Janda wrote in Student Life that Palin’s appearance would “fundamentally shift the discourse that this event will create. Instead of discussing issues regarding abstinence in college, students will discuss the suitability of Ms. Palin as a keynote speaker. In this way, Ms. Palin’s appearance will suppress dialogue about the issues that Sex Week is meant to address and, instead, spark dialogue about Treasury’s use of its money.”

In other words, because the campus left is mad with hatred at the Palin family, her presence would be too much of a distraction. Their resistance automatically makes her too controversial to be allowed to speak, which means anyone they really dislike would instantly hit the same level of controversy, and be silenced. I don’t know what else is being taught at Washington U, but Sean Janda seems to understand fascism pretty well.

[…]

Palin’s place on the Student Sexual Responsibility Week panel will be taken by Dr. Katie Plax, an associate professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Washington University. I doubt she’ll pull the kind of crowds Bristol would have, since she’ll be walking across the quad to deliver her presentation. A May 2009 profile of Dr. Plax from the Washington University Newsroom mentions that she is the recipient of a two-year fellowship from the Soros Foundation, and actively campaigned for Barack Obama in the 2008 election. She sounds like someone the campus-left cowards will be more comfortable with.

The Left’s Trouble With Abstinence

Posted by Shane Vander Hart on March 26, 2010

Abstinence-only education is effective.    Abstinence itself is 100% effective every time it is tried.  There are many myths surrounding it that are unfounded that are proclaimed in promoting comprehensive sex education.  Abstinence-only sex education just drives the left bonkers.  When that happens they turn on the snark.  Rob Asghar, author of Lessons from the Holy Wars and contributing blogger at The Huffington Post, wrote a post entitled “Bristol Palin and The Trouble With Christian Sex.”  He, of course, decides to point to Bristol Palin as an example of what is wrong with abstinence-only education.  I’ve blogged on Bristol Palin before and don’t intend to say much here.  I do want to point out this, to say a teenage mother can’t be an advocate for abstinence is akin to saying a former drug addict can’t speak out on the dangers of illegal drugs.  Who can better do just that than someone who has experience the pitfalls. 

Enough said about that.  What I really want to take time to address is  the three fundamental problems that he feels arises from Biblical sexual instruction framed around his main premise that, “Christians simply have an idealized notion of sex and relationships, one that’s increasingly divorced from the reality and the direction of the larger society.”

1. Its rules weren’t intended for modern society.

Asghar writes:

Whether the human body developed gradually over millions of years or suddenly around six millenia ago, God or Mother Nature installed sexual plumbing that slips noisily into gear around age 13 and keeps churning noisily for decades. Yet human society has developed in ways that increasingly delay marriage till 30-something. The body and mind are hardly silly to rebel.

The focus on abstinence, on "presenting one’s body as a holy and living sacrifice to God" (to use Paul’s term), is in 2010 a great way to never meet that special someone. Christianity is so fearful of experimentation on the part of singles that it encourages passivity instead. The notion is that "God will deliver the right person in His perfect timing. I shouldn’t upset His plans or force His hand and get into inappropriate entanglements." Given that marriage is being delayed more than ever, it’s little wonder that many quality people that I knew in church have moved into middle age solo, against their will and better judgment and deepest longings. And it’s little wonder that some of those who married did so with people outside the church.

It is true that some people are putting off getting married until later in life.  It also true that some view adolescence lasting until age 25.  He says that human society has increasingly found ways to delay marriage.  I can’t deny that.  I don’t think it’s healthy or appropriate to view a 22-year-old as an adolescent however.  It’s ironic that on one hand as David Elkind, a child psychologist and professor emeritus of Child Development at Tufts University, notes in his book, The Hurried Child, we do push our kids into growing up too fast and they end up mimicking adults – giving a sense of pseudo-maturity.  Elkind notes, “We see these adolescents mourning for a lost childhood.”  On the other hand (perhaps a direct result of the push to end childhood) we extend adolescence to the age where instead getting married and starting a career or family like they did a generation ago, many still refuse to take on real responsibility or make a commitment.

But I digress.

Let me challenge the main premise behind what he is saying with his point.  That not engaging in sexual behavior “experimenting” is passive and the Christian Single will never meet that special someone.  Can I say this one of the major reasons a lot of marriages end in divorce?  Far too many relationships are built on the foundation of sex and physical attraction and they as a result lack depth.  Marriages need to be built on love, intimacy and commitment and that is often lacking when the physical aspect of a relationship is the center of attention.  It is possible to meet a future spouse without the presumption of a sexual relationship… I’ve known many people who do get married after college after meeting their future spouse there, and I’ve know many older Christians who found their spouse later on.

All without acting like a bunch of minks.

2.  It promises more than it can deliver.

Asghar writes:

It criticizes all premarital liaisons as dangerous or at least misguided, and it pooh-poohs any possibility of even some redeeming or meaningful engagement with another human being. And it sets the marital bed up as a far greater good. This leads to the common complaint of various married Christian friends, which is that married sex isn’t what it was cracked up to be. Distress over the mundaneness of it all, anger at the lack of interest on the part of a spouse, and curiosity about what else may have been out there prior to marriage may not be terribly different from what anyone else feels. But Christians’ sense of disappointment is more real and palpable.

At some level, the notion that abstinence in singleness will lead to maximum joy in marriage is a microcosm of the idea that if you show restraint on earth you will have boundless joy in the afterlife. And there are many who, based on how they found the former notion to be untrue, worry about the latter being a bit trumped up, too.

Again Asghar frames relationships as being primarily sexual.  Is it possible to have redeeming or meaningful engagement with someone without having sex?  Yes.  The marital bed is a far greater good, God designed it that way.  He created sex and said it was good within the boundaries of marriage.  Asghar’s citing complaints of various married Christian friends (he seems to rely on anecdotes quite a bit, and I wonder how many people he’s actually talking about here) about the mundaneness of married sex.  Yeah it can be mundane.  But what I find ridiculous is that he thinks the answer is in premarital sex.  I don’t think that remedies the problem, in fact, I think it makes it worse.  Comparisons start.  Remembering previous sexual partners while you are supposed to be making love to your spouse doesn’t exactly help achieve intimacy.

Then you have our sex saturated society and porn culture that sadly has had a devastating impact on marriages in and outside the Church.  When men start comparing their wife to some porn star they’ve seen – well there’s no way that can lead to satisfaction with the marital bed.

It’s much better as Scripture says after being married for years to rejoice in the wife of your youth, as we see in Proverbs…

Should your springs be scattered abroad,
streams of water in the streets?
Let them be for yourself alone,
and not for strangers with you.
Let your fountain be blessed,
and rejoice in the wife of your youth,
a lovely deer, a graceful doe.
Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight;
be intoxicated always in her love, (Proverbs 5:15-19, ESV)

Asghar’s advice doesn’t help build what is sorely lacking in our marriages and society at large, and that is contentment.  Having sex before marriage won’t do anything to enhance the marital bed, it will only hurt it.  If you aren’t having the sex life you desired you should ask yourself perhaps we aren’t connecting in other ways like you should as a couple or perhaps you have unrealistic expectations.

3.  It encourages bad faith, not integrity or maturity.

Asghar writes:

Within a contemporary church, you will discover many committed couples who break traditional bounds of romance while pretending to be chaste. They stay overnight, for example, grinding their way past every boundary short of intercourse. I believe Calvin would have had them flogged in Geneva, and I suspect God would have told them to quit the BS and just go ahead and use a condom instead of attempting to play coy.

Theological and ecclesiastical authorities will say that this isn’t what Biblical instruction intends and shouldn’t even be cited as an example of Christian conduct. But few will concede that sex is complicated, and that sometimes the unmarried couple that enjoys sex responsibly but which later breaks up may be healthier than the ones who rationalize loopholes.

There is also the issue of premature marriage. Go back to the huge gap between puberty and marriage that arises due to social changes that extend adolescence longer than ever before. Combine this with Paul’s admonitions that "it is better to marry than to burn," and far too many devout Christian singles end up getting married before they are emotionally mature. They want the sex now, and marriage is the only way they can get it in a way that they think God can bless. So they marry just after graduation from their Christian college, well before they know what they want in a relationship or can bring to it. This is bad faith, and it is thus small wonder that the divorce rate for Christians is roughly the same as for those who don’t live by the Bible’s demanding standards.

Asghar says you will discover many committed couples within the different churches (don’t exactly know what he means by contemporary) who have sex before marriage or are what I call technical virgins (which really is not being pure at all).  I’m sure there are, but there are many who don’t.  And what God would say about such behavior is what he says about any sinful behavior to repent, turn from your sin and flee to Christ.  God is good and in Christ’s sacrifice we can hold to the promise that “if we confess our sin, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sin and cleanse us from all unrighteousness,” (1 John 1:9, NIV).  Others may not realize the deception, but God does.  We can with confidence go to God’s throne of grace to receive mercy and find His grace in our time of need, (Hebrews 4:16).

Those in Christ still have a sinful nature, and yes they do fail.  And the Apostle John tells us that he who says he is without sin not only deceives himself and the truth is not in him, (1 John 1:8) and even goes as far to say that he is a liar if he does such a thing, (1 John 1:10).   That doesn’t mean we should just give up and live our lives in utter disregard to what Scripture teaches.  Rather we need to immerse ourselves in the Gospel of Christ, remembering His love for us and His sacrifice.  Because only by the mercies of God can we offer our bodies as living sacrifices, (Romans 12:1).  If we approach this as a set of rules we’ll fail, but if that among other things is seen as worship and done out of love and reverence from Christ… well our perspective changes.

We need grace, but as Paul asked (and then answered):

What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound?  By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? (Romans 6:1-2, ESV).

But yet that is what Asghar advocates.  His last argument is to point out premature marriages, and then he links it to the divorce rate among Christians.  So Christians divorce because they hold off on sex until marriage and then marry prematurely?  I’ve written on divorce before so I don’t want to get into that here.  I do recognize the divorce rate among Christians is much better than the rest of the world.  I want to challenge a couple things here – first off what evidence does he cite for these premature marriages?  None.  My wife and I married when I was 21 (she was 20), we were the exception, not the norm.  Most of those who were in married student housing at the time were in the Seminary at Trinity International University.  I didn’t know (and still don’t know) that many people who get married why they are still in college.  I’ve been married almost 17 years.  Were we immature?  Certainly, I’d like to think I’m more mature now.  We had our share of problems.

My point is this – marriage is hard.  Age doesn’t necessarily prepare you for how your life changes.  Actually, in some ways, I think it would have been harder if you’re used to living by yourself.  But he also operates under the assumption that is the only reason people marry that young is so they can have “legal sex.”  I think that in most cases is a false premise.  He also looks at maturity in marriage as “knowing what you want out of a relationship and what you can bring to it.”

I would say the “knowing what you want out of a relationship” is the wrong approach.  It’s immature.  It’s looking at “what’s in it for me.”  And it is that attitude that leads to divorce more often than not.  If you go into a marriage looking to have your needs met… you are sunk.  You will be disappointed.  It’s that attitude rather than if you get married out of college as opposed to in your 30s that’s the problem.  Marriage means sacrifice.  If Asghar is right, then why is it more couples in a second or third marriage get divorced?  Why do people who cohabitate prior to marriage tend to have a higher divorce rate.  I’m not saying that getting married young doesn’t come with some disadvantages, but I believe Asghar is over-generalizing.  The fact is most people either outside or inside the church still do get married after college.

You have to hand it to Asghar for setting up a nice straw-man argument though.

Why the Lies, Levi?

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 24, 2010

Like many of you, I have wondered why Levi Johnston would turn his back on and even attack the loving family that had embraced him as one of their own in spite of the less than ideal circumstances involved. I wondered if it was merely the lure of fame and fortune or if he was being manipulated by those who wish to destroy Sarah Palin politically. Were his actions or at least the income from them a payoff for his mother’s legal expenses, I wondered. Was he so naïve that he did not realize that he was being used as a political tool by his handlers? Sometimes I even felt sorry for him because of the manipulations as well as his troubled homelife.

But then I saw this article, and I realized that, regardless of the original reasons behind his behavior, all of the publicity had gone to Levi’s head.

Now that Levi Johnston has completed his much-hyped Playgirl photo shoot, the Alaskan teen apparently thinks that he and his “little Wasilla” are deserving of special treatment. Johnston, the father of Sarah Palin’s grandson Tripp, made a bit of a scene at JFK airport on Tuesday, according to the New York Post’s Page Six.

Embarrassed onlookers told Page Six that Johnston showed up at the airport wearing sunglasses (hey, it’s bright inside the terminal) and would not deign to stand in line with the rest of the lowly passengers — which included Jason Alexander, who could probably buy and sell Johnston more times than the 19 year old can count.

“(Johnston) then made a big show of getting on first,” one witness told Page Six. “He was seated in the front row of first class, looking like he was born to be there and waiting for some recognition. Jason Alexander was quietly sitting behind him.”

Perhaps Levi’s character was already flawed, or perhaps his handlers showered him with delusions of grandeur if he did their bidding. But we now see a man of the world who is unknowingly bent on self-destruction as he pursues his own self-promotion. Not only was his Playgirl shoot a lapse in morality, but his recent behavior in general has provided a poor role model for his young son. What is the legacy that Levi will leave to Tripp – that of a porn star or that of a loving, responsible father? So far, Levi has made the former choice – I hope and pray he comes to his senses and chooses the latter.

But what about the lies that Levi continues to propagate? I think the most infamous one was when he stated that Sarah Palin asked him to show her how to shoot a rifle. There is ample documentation of Governor Palin’s hunting and fishing abilities, from her childhood on up. There is even a video in which she hits the target dead center on her first try with a military assault weapon. Quite an achievement for someone who doesn’t hunt or fish or know how to shoot a gun, wouldn’t you say?

Levi’s latest lies are his claims about supporting his son in excess of what Bristol has reported in her court documents asking for the minimum amount of child support that is required by Alaska state law – 20 % of Levi’s income. If Levi’s claims are true, then where is the documentation? None has been mentioned, or promised, because there is none.

Contrast Levi’s lifestyle to the one that Bristol has chosen. A single mom now, she has chosen to devote her life to raising her son Tripp. Rather than go away to school like many young women her age, she is going to the community college and working to support her son at the same time. Her mornings begin at 4 to 4:30 AM, and she has been an excellent mother. Small wonder that she would not want Tripp exposed to Levi’s immoral lifestyle.


Not only is Bristol taking her parenting seriously, but she is serving as a role model for other young women through her involvement with Candies and her own vow of abstinence until marriage. She went on the Oprah show on Friday to discuss her decision and took heat not only from Oprah but from Levi for her admirable position on this topic that affects all unmarried people.

Bristol has even set up her own public relations firm, probably in relation to her work with Candies. This young woman is going somewhere in life, but she is doing it honorably and through hard work. Tripp will have cause to take pride in his mother’s achievements and in the example that she is setting for him.

Bristol could easily have made other choices. But she didn’t, and that speaks to the strong character that she has developed as a member of a wholesome, loving family. A family that she remains an integral part of and which provides the support system she and Tripp need. Tripp is in the best possible hands right where he is and should not have his secure existence disturbed by someone of questionable morals who puts fame above family responsibilities.

Happy Birthday, Bristol Palin!

Posted by Sarah Palin Web Brigade on October 18, 2009

What a coincidence! Sarah Palin’s eldest daughter Bristol and the state of Alaska share a birthday!

It’s been just a little over a year since America met Bristol Palin. And like her mother, she has made us proud. Not only did she choose life for her beautiful baby boy, Tripp, but she graduated from high school last year and is working two jobs to support her son.

Like Sarah, Bristol showed profound grace and fortitude in the face of the leftist onslaught of the media against this beautiful family. Having learned from her own experiences, she also became a spokesperson for teen abstinence.

So today, on behalf of the Sarah Palin Information Blog and all of our authors, I want to wish Bristol a very happy Birthday and a future filled with many successes. May all your dreams come true and all your plans succeed as you follow the special path God has for you.

Levi Johnston Dead Beat Dad Of The Year

Posted by Gary P Jackson on June 4, 2009

levi-johnston-on-the-tyra-banks-show-500x365

I’m not a fan of Levi Johnston. But as Father’s Day will soon be upon us, I feel this is a fitting award!

Why am I bringing this up, and what does this have to with my usual theme of choices in politics and life? Well, it should be obvious. Life is all about choices. Some good, some bad, and some just plain disgusting

Levi is rapidly falling into the disgusting category

We’ve all had failed relationships in our life. Some of us, especially when we were young, had a few. Most of us didn’t leave a child behind in those relationships. But out of those that did, most stepped up to the plate and did the right thing by the kid.

Which brings me to an e-mail from a friend. “Levi seen cashing two $500 checks from National Enquirer at Wasilla Wal-Mart!” Not exactly news, I mean we all understand Levi is prostituting himself out for “fame and fortune”.

But it brings up some questions. While Levi is out playing “rock star for the day”, who is taking care of his son full time, working to pay for his son’s diapers, while continuing her education?

While Levi is out schmoozing, or hunting and fishing, who is changing dirty diapers and taking care of his son?

And what about Levi’s new found celebrity?

Here’s an uneducated, unemployed, kid. A kid that ain’t even looking for a job. And yet, since he has become such a well known man-about-town, he has traded in his fairly new Chevrolet pick up, for a more upscale Ford. He also has new Jeep. It now seems Levi has supposedly put a deposit down on a Mercedes-Benz in Anchorage!

Now being a reformed car guy, I can tell you that folks don’t just put down a deposit on hope! (or change)

So you tell me, where does all of Levi’s money come from? I mean this is an unemployed high school drop out! Cars cost money, flashy clothes cost money, and jet setting across the nation costs a lot of money, especially with an accused drug dealing mother and a sister who seems a little to “attentive” for my taste, in tow.

One answer may very well be Rex Butler

Butler is a high powered Alaska attorney and Barack Obama supporter. He is representing Levi’s mother, Sherry Johnston on her 6 felony counts of drug trafficking. He also appears to be Levi’s manager of sorts.

Eddie Burke, from the Eddie Burke Show, discusses this situation at length. Evidently, long time Butler muscle for hire Sherman “Tank” Jones is now Levi’s bodyguard!

Our friends over at Conservatives 4 Palin describe this pair as money grubbing smear merchants.” Which seems to describe the entire left wing up in the land of the midnight sun. I’ve written extensively about some of the insane bloggers who have co-ordinated many attacks on Governor Palin, and C4P calls them some of them out, as well, in their story on Butler and Jones.

It is said that Butler is representing Sherry Johnson and Levi “pro-bono.” But that doesn’t sound right. I mean what is in it for Butler? Now I can see an attorney, helping out a local out with a small, or even large problem for free, so long as they didn’t have to break a sweat. But….

Now, it has been well established that Barack Obama and his chief of staff Pete Rouse were a driving force behind the phony troopergate witch hunt, and as a reward for a job well done, Pete Rouse’s good friend, Alaska Senator Kim Elton, who ram-rodded the smear campaign was given a make work job over in the Department of the Interior in Barack Obama’s administration.

Could Butler be expecting some sort of payoff down the line? That certainly seems to be the Chicago way!

I honestly don’t know. But I know this. New Ford trucks, Jeeps, and Mercedes-Benz automobiles cost a lot of money. Money that an uneducated, unemployed kid generally wouldn’t have.

Levi decided to forgo being a stand up guy when it came to taking care of his child. Instead he has decided to spend his youth stripping for GQ magazine, and trashing the mother of his child on national television, by appearing on the Tyra Banks Show, as well as Larry King Live. (I’m sure his son will be so proud to know this when he grows up)

Now, when asked, Tyra banks said in no uncertain terms that the show did not pay for Levi, and family, to appear on the show, nor provide for expenses.

Plane tickets cost money. Hotels in New York City cost money. Eating in New York City costs money. Just moving around the city costs money, even if you assume the shows sent a car to bring the Johnston family to the studios.

So, where is all of this money coming from?

While two $500 checks from National Enquirer is certainly income, it’s not much. And if Levi was a man, instead of a boy, he would have given one of those checks to Bristol, to help care for his son.

Which brings me to this. Why doesn’t Levi stop playing “teen idol” and man-up?

Well, if this boy actually went out and got a job, he’d have to give up half of it in child support, that’s why! This loser knows the second he becomes a productive member of society, he will be forced to take responsibility for his son.

Levi seems to think that if he has no job, no visible means of support, that he has no responsibilities. Maybe he figures 50% of nothing, is nothing.

Of course, as far as being a real man, 100% of Levi is still nothing!

Do the right thing Levi, get a job, and provide for your child. You are only a useful idiot to the left. As soon as they use you up, they’ll forget you. Your son, on the other hand is precious, and needs his father to be a stand up guy!

Levi, It is a time for you to choose!

Bristol Palin Exposes Her Sometimes Isolated Life

bristol_palin_people_coverBristol Palin’s pretty, lightly freckled face was nowhere to be seen on the overhead screen as images from her high-school senior slideshow – photos from the prom and a Class of 2009 portrait set against the Alaska snow – played during May 14’s Wasilla High commencement ceremony.

Did it make her sad to have missed out on so much senior-year fun – to be spending graduation night not with a gang of friends but at home, giving her 5-month-old son a bottle while her extended family plays “Eskimo bingo”?

Bristol, the eldest daughter of Alaska GOP Gov. Sarah Palin’s five children, answers with a multitasking mom’s whiff of impatience: “I have other things to worry about.”

Bristol Palin, 18, has logged more of those “other things” than some people twice her age. In just the past nine months, she weathered her mother’s bruising vice-presidential run; a failed engagement to boyfriend Levi Johnston that played out in the national media; and, most indelibly, a pregnancy that made her both mother and poster child. She is uncertain where she will go to college – she’s thinking of a two-year business program – but says her near future will include advocating for teen-pregnancy prevention.

No Nanny in House
“Girls need to imagine and picture their life with a screaming newborn baby and then think before they have sex,” she tells PEOPLE. “Think about the consequences.”

Her mom may be governor, but there is no nanny in the Palin house. Bristol gets up – usually twice during the night – to feed Tripp, who sleeps in a hand-me-down crib in her bedroom, and she says she has tapped out at least one school paper with her son crying in the background. She breastfed her baby for a month, pumping milk before class and rushing straight home to feed him. And she worked two part-time jobs to help pay for the diapers and formula her parents otherwise supply.

“If girls realized the consequences of sex, nobody would be having sex,” says Bristol, sitting at her parents’ lakeside patio table. “Trust me. Nobody.”

As for her breakup with Levi, 19, with whom she’s still trying to resolve child support and visitation issues, Bristol says it was for the best. “I’m thankful we didn’t get married because if it wasn’t going to work now, it wasn’t going to work in five years.”

For more on Bristol’s life with her baby and exclusive at-home photos of the Palin family, pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.
