You go girl. Regardless of how you feel about the Palins or how rich you think they are men should support their children! There is no excuse for dead beat fathers and she is sending a great message to all of them.

Levi is a loser and the Palin's are way too classy for this bum.

Funny how the left is suddenly siding with the deadbeat dad...

The Palin haters are displaying their usual ignorance and stupidity.

Their hysterical and ignorant rantings would be funny if not for the fact that these people vote and their votes adversely affect those of us with common sense.

Bristol Palin does work, and Sarah Palin's income is not relevant to the matter, but Levi Johnston's is, thus the fact that he has to pay approx. 17% of his gross earnings for last year towards the care of his child.

He can show up to be on "The Joy Behar Show" to falsely trash the family that treated him like a son, yet he can't show up in court when it comes to the well-being of his own son.

Funny how the people who were cheering on all those frivolous lawsuits against Sarah Palin in an attempt to bankrupt her (which were all thrown out of court) are now suddenly whining and crying "FOUL!" when it's Levi that is being sued.

Well I am so happy for Bristol Palin; I guess like mother like daughter!!!!!! I think many of american's will see that Sarah left the Governorship to make lots of dough and as any woman knows if you have a baby the guy always gets screwed that is how the courts work it. By the way I am not a guy I am a woman.

in reference to

126. Her Mother ran the state? did he really think he was going to get a fare shake? this is what happens when you have a child with tralier trash! 1800 a month can support 3 family for a month in that state. what the hell is this kid going to be eating?

educate yourself

the amount ordered is the same percentage of income that is always ordered by the state in every case

which means that EVERYONE in Alaska right now is paying the same percentage of their incomes in child support cases

it has nothing to do with the Palins!

if he makes less money then the percentage will remain the same but smaller income means smaller payments naturally

and the percentage isn't that great-so he's living very well- not sacrificing or struggling at all

it is a very fair amount

This guy is a total LOSER, but he is the baby daddy and tooo bad sooo sad, he's gotta pay up. That poor little baby. The very least the baby daddy can do is contribute financially to his life. At least this LOSER recognizes he has a bleak future-- it's obvious to everyone else.

How in the world is that kid supposed to pay that kind of money each month? Palin must have had the judge in her pocket!

#162 Really? I can see you're not a mother or at least not a mother with a divorce or absent father in the picture!! Most men don't get screwed over in the court system by women actually, women have to fight sometimes for several years to get maintenance for a deadbeat dad's baby, then a court judgement doesn't mean you'll get the money especially if he quits his job!!Mainly it's the mum (unless as some very good father's have done, got custody of their kid), who raises baby, it takes two to make a baby and therefore two to pay for his upkeep!! As for some idiot asking how is that poor kid suppossed to pay - with the money he gets from every interview, talk show, picture shoot where he slams the Palin family and uses their name!! Without Sarah Palin Levi wouldn't be known anywhere, why the h**l he was never charged with statutory rape is something he should be down on his hands and knees kissing her feet for! I don't care how you feel about Sarah Palin politically or otherwise, Bristol is entitled to child support at the right amount from his earnings!! What nutter ever thought Levi was good looking is beyond me, he's as ugly as sin and a selfish, egotistical back stabber who likes to screw young girls!!

All the quacks on here saying she needs to get a job (which she actually has) are hilarious!! These are the same Communist loving nutrags that scream that the country should pay for all the lazy welfare recipients to have healthcare, yet they have a problem with Levi doing what he is required to by law? No wonder liberalism is imploding!! Hilarious!!!

That's what he get's for not showing up for court. If he actually cared about his child he would have been there. He blew it with Bristol because he thought he could make a name for himself and make lots of money. IDIOT!

cameron,

You are not very bright. All the money Levi has "earned" is due to his bashing, slandering and slamming the Palins. If anyone is entitled to that money it is Bristol's child. Nasty things? What about all the lies and hateful things Levi has said about the Palins? You Commies are so painfully ignorant and hypocritical. Bristol has a full-time job and is a full-time student. What is Levi doing?

Don't choke on your crow now, tool.
