President Obama Addresses Congress on Health Care Reform.

Looking to watch the President’s Health Care address to the Joint Session of Congress today? Head out to Democratic Party Headquarters at 2602 Fairbanks St. between Fireweed and Northern Lights. The speech starts at 4pm Alaska time. There will also be a conference call with the President’s campaign manager David Plouffe that everyone can listen to after the address. If you can’t be there, you can watch live at www.BarackObama.com. Either way, don’t miss this one. You can live blog it here, and I’ll put up a video when it becomes available.

Parents Revolt – Too Angry to Scrapbook!

OK wingnut moms and dads across the nation. Here’s a final word to convince you that you’re doing the right thing by keeping your kids out of school to protest the president telling them to stay in school. Yeah…that’ll show ’em! This spoof is quite hilarious.

President Obama’s Speech to School Children

OK, everybody… Ready for the big scary indoctrination? Ready for some kind of evil fascist-communist-Democrat-Marxist-eepycreepyist propoganda that will be crammed down the throats of innocent school children turning them into librul slaves of their evil Obamacrat Overlords? Hide the children! They’re about to be told to never give up. They’re about to be encouraged to READ and attend school, and set goals for themselves! They’re about to be reminded of their potential and given inspiring stories of other children who have risen above circumstance and succeeded!  Keep them home!  Inspiration, hope and a good work ethic is the first step…

Organizing for America Rally in Anchorage

About 200 supporters of health care reform showed up at Romig Middle School Thursday night to send a message to Alaska’s Senators.  Alaskans want real reform, now. Soon to be gubernatorial candidate Ethan Berkowitz was there, in addition to Rep. Sharon Cissna, Senator Johnny Ellis, Shawna Thoma from Mark Begich’s Anchorage office, and others I’m sure I missed. ~~Ethan Berkowitz~~ Johnathan Teeters and Sarah Mouricade of Organizing for America ran the show, talked about what has been done so far, showed a couple videos, and took a phone call from Senator Mark Begich who is currently on his way to…

Spam of the Week

I got a hilarious email on Friday about the whole “The President of the United States is going to indoctrinate our children with the love of learning” thing.  It was one of those snarky ones that used satire to the extreme to illustrate how truly insane 10% of the country really is. It started off like this: Law-Breaker-in-Chief: Obama Violates Federal Law to Indoctrinate Your Children Washington, DC – In what many analysts believe is both an unprecedented and wildly inappropriate partisan move, President Obama has announced that on Tuesday, September 8, he will do an end run around parents…

Odds and Ends – Cabbage, Landfill, Venom and Mud.

Pass the Slaw! Those long summer days always make the giant vegetable exhibit at the Alaska State Fair interesting.  This year was even more exciting than usual…if you consider staring at giant vegetables exciting. A world record green cabbage tipped the scales at 125.9 pounds, with a 21-inch diameter head, and a leaf span of about 5 feet. In the shadow of the giant cabbage was another world record breaker, an 82.9 pound rutabega. Dump da Dump Dump… The City of Emmonak is about to receive a $3.2 million loan and a $1.4 million grant from stimulus money to construct…

A Year of Sarah Palin. What a Long, Strange Trip It’s Been.

[This article is cross-posted at The Huffington Post] What a difference a year makes. A year ago today, after being stunned by McCain’s VP pick, I had finished writing a piece called “What Is McCain Thinking? One Alaskan’s Perspective.”  It’s hard to imagine a time when the country was asking “Sarah Who?” but it was only one short year ago. One of the selling features of Sarah Palin was her astronomically high approval ratings in the state of Alaska. After all, how could a governor have positives in the high 80s or low 90s and be anything less than an…

P-Day: Sarah Palin One Year Later

  You gotta love John Ziegler (above getting punked by Mudflats mascot Brian the Moose).  One year ago today, Sarah Palin was foisted on the unsuspecting public in a mavericky move to top all previous mavericky moves by Senator John McCain, and John Ziegler begame her super dooper #1 fan, happily devoting his life to ride shot-gun in her race to oblivion. After seeing him in person at the screening of his puff-umenatry film on Sarah Palin called Media Malpractice: How Obama got Elected and Palin was Targeted, I left wondering how the half-full theatre in Anchorage Alaska could actually manage to…

Glen Beck Death Watch

  The Glenn Beck Deathwatch has officially begun, and you, the American people are the Death Panel.  After calling Barack Obama a “racist,”  who has a “deep seated hatred of white people,” advertisers have been dropping him like yesterday’s rubbish.  The total is now up to 36 companies who’d rather pretend not to know him. All that elicited the following painful monologue. Well, I’m a recovering alcoholic.  I’ve lost everything already one time in my life, but I learned something.  I am better and stronger for it.  I didn’t need a bailout to get back on my feet.  I just needed…

Nazis.

On my 21st birthday, I woke up in the morning and drove to Dairy Queen.  I got soft serve vanilla ice cream with strawberry topping and I ate it for breakfast.  Why?  When I was a child I asked once if I could have ice cream for breakfast, and my mother said, “You can have ice cream for breakfast when you’re 21.”  And so I did. My father spent his 21st birthday in a prisoner of war camp.  Deaf in one ear, and completely flat-footed, he could have easily been a “4-F” and escaped service for medical reasons.  He was…
