I had the unfortunate experience a couple weeks ago to listen to Representative Don Young call in to the Rick Rydell radio show on KENI. While most of the conversation was expected, one of his comments really got my attention. Young promised that the House of Representatives would not be shutting down the government.

Representative Harriet Drummond (D, ANC) introduced legislation last week to allow physician assisted suicide here in Alaska. She calls it Death with Dignity and dresses it up in all the usual leftist claptrap about choice.

Interesting election here in Alaska. All four of the democrat sponsored ballot initiatives passed. Three required a yes vote. One required a no vote. Unfortunately for the democrats, the positive outcomes on the initiatives did not drag their candidates across the finish line with them for the most part.

The EPA assessment of the impact of the proposed Pebble mine in 2011 claimed to address local concern about the project, which the EPA simply couldn’t ignore. As it turns out, that was all a big lie. The results were pre-ordained and anti-mining groups worked closely with the EPA well before the assessment process was announced.

Our Congress has gotten so sloppy about keeping within the bounds they were assigned by the Constitution, that it is time to clarify both their duties and those of the Supreme Court.

Are you serious? Are you serious?”

I have had occasion to cringe when I hear sub-literate answers many US senators and representatives give when they’re asked “what is the constitutional justification for a law?”

When Cook Inlet Drift Boat operators go to federal court demanding that the feds manage Cook Inlet salmon, they are not interested in your right to fill your freezer with fish.  Instead, they are busily lining their own pockets at your expense.

The Congressional appropriation process is broken. To promote less wasteful government funding this column attempts to:

  • revitalize the House of Representative’s origin function,
  • eliminate omnibus appropriation bills, and
  • provide for an orderly continuation procedure.
     

Why address the appropriation process?

It often appears that all the forces of government have a bias in favor of higher taxes and higher expenditures. This bias is very apparent in the appropriations process. The process of compromise among the House, Senate, and President often results in taxation and spending higher than any one of the three would chose.

Yet another sin tax proposed.  The last one didn't work.  Why do it again?

The new prohibitionists are back with yet another bite of the apple, with a tax increase on alcohol on the MatSu ballot tomorrow. All the usual suspects are out in force supporting yet another regressive tax on people who pose no problem to the body politic.

For years Alaskans wondered why films and shows about Alaska were filmed outside Alaska. The reason was a simple one, it was just cheaper to film elsewhere. Until now…
