Sarah Palin today extended the invitation to new Secretary of Interior and former Colorado Senator Ken Salazar to visit Alaska.

Governor Sarah Palin today invited new Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar to visit Alaska. In her letter of invitation, Governor Palin congratulates Secretary Salazar on his new post and urges him to consult with her and her administration on issues that affect Alaska. The governor also pledges her cooperation and willingness to work on solutions that will benefit Alaska and the nation.

Salazar was confirmed last month by a unanimous vote in the U.S. Senate to become the 50th Secretary of the Interior.

A copy of Governor Palin’s letter is here.

CNN asks a Temple University mathematics professor how much $1 trillion actually is. The story notes Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell is correct when he says that if you spent $1 million per day starting in the year 0, you still would not have spent $1 trillion by 2009.

The Democrat/Obama Economic Stimulus Bill (S.1) or PORKULUS is a $1 Trillion beomouth. How much is a $Trillion?

Watch the video above.

What a BOONDOGGLE and a colossal failure.

The Congress whould scrape the entire bill and instead immediately consider what the Republican Study Committe has already recommended for families:

  • Five Percent Across the Board Income Tax Cut
  • Increase the Child Tax Credit from $1,000 to $5,000
  • Make the Lower 15% Rate on Capital Gains and Dividends Permanent
  • Repeal the Alternative Minimum Tax on Individuals
  • Permanently Repeal Distributions on Retirement Accounts
  • Make All Withdrawals from IRA’s Tax and Penalty Free During 2009
  • Increase by 50% the Tax Deduction on Student Loans and the Tax Deducation on Qualified Higher Education Expenses

For business:

  • Full, Immediate Expensing
  • Significant Reduction in Top Corporate Income Tax Rate (from 35% to 25%)
  • End the Capital Gains Tax on Inflation
  • Simplify the Capital Gains Rate Structure
  • Make the R and D Tax Credit Permanent
  • Extend the Carryback Period for Net Operating losses to Seven Years

Should Senate Republicans fail to limit the PORKULUS, they should simply let the Democrats and President Obama eat the bill with few, if any GOP votes.

When the economy continues to fail, the blame will fall on the obvious.

Yes on prop 8 400

The battle over gay marriage in California and California Proposition 8 which was passed by California voters last November is coming to an end in the California Supreme Court.

The state Supreme Court will hear arguments March 5 on the validity of California’s ban on same-sex marriage, which voters approved in November after an emotionally charged and expensive campaign.

The court said Tuesday that it would hold a three-hour hearing on Proposition 8, from 9 a.m. to noon, at its chambers in San Francisco . The proceedings will also be televised statewide on the California Channel, the court said. A ruling is due within 90 days of the hearing.

Prop. 8 amended the state Constitution to declare that marriage only between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California. It overturned the court’s May 15 ruling throwing out state laws that banned same-sex marriage.

Along with arguments over the constitutionality of Prop. 8, the court will hear views on whether 18,000 same-sex marriages performed in California before the November election should remain legally recognized if the ballot measure is upheld.

A ruling, therefore, on the constituionality of California Proposition 8 that restored the traditional definition of marriage (one man and one woman) will be made by June 5, 2009.

Flap predicts that court will uphold the decision of California voters and hold Proposition 8 constitutional.

Then, gay marriage proponents will have to decide whether they want to circulate an initiative for the June 2010 or November 2010 ballot to overturn Proposition 8.

All of the legal filings before the California Supreme Court are here.

Stay tuned……
