More of the same

Watching the coronation of Hillary Clinton as the Democrats’ presidential nominee and the first woman ever nominated as the party’s standard-bearer, it was easy to wonder whether her election would simply be an extension of the disastrous Obama administration. Bigger, more oppressive government forced down our throats at every turn. National debt now at more […]

Too convenient

The headline made the hair stand up on the back of our neck and other necks as well: “New Permanent Fund manager says opportunities might include natural resource development in Alaska.” “Natural resource development?” That is unsettling news as we have a governor focused like a laser on building the $65 billion Alaska LNG Project […]

Tough to be a Democrat
