Hooray! – even if it does not last

Even though it is expected to cut an estimated $3.6 million from borough and service area funds within three years, the Matanuska-Susitna Borough is waiving the $170 biennial registration fees and taxes for owners of non-commercial trailers or vehicles at least 8 years old. Starting in January, it will be the first Alaska municipality to […]

You sillies – corporations, businesses do not create jobs

Why does America bother with – much less continue to pay attention to – people such as Hillary Clinton? In an Oct. 24 speech supporting Martha Coakley, the Massachusetts Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Clinton said: “Don’t let anybody, don’t let anybody tell you that, ah, you know, it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.

The HB77 lie

In the race for Alaska’s U.S. Senate seat, there are no holds barred by the political left and the truth, well, if it gets bruised, so bit it.
