The Palin Family Reality Show!!

Posted by italco on July 3, 2009

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin announced Friday that she was quitting her job at the end of the month — unleashing a torrent of speculation about her plans, motivation and the political wisdom of such a seemingly confounding decision.

“I always thought after the race what she needed to do was go back to Alaska and be substantive, show she’s got a grasp of government and work for the good of the folks back home,” said Stuart Rothenberg, an independent campaign analyst in Washington. “This seems to be the exact opposite.”

“It’s a gob-smacking, jaw-hit-the-ground total kind of surprise,” said Ivan Moore, an independent political pollster in Anchorage who said Palin was a strong favorite to win a second term had she run next year. As for any presidential ambitions, “I can’t see how this move helps her,” Moore said. “In fact, quite the opposite. I think it’s terribly damaging.” http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-palin4-2009jul04,0,6231829.story

Many are speculating that the Palin’s plan on running for President in 2012. Personally, I think that is highly assumptive on their part. This isn’t about politics…she just ended her political career. This is about “money”. It has always been about money. They are going to do their own reality show.

I called it a long time ago. The Palin Family reality TV show. Move over John and Kate plus 8. The Palin family is going to mop up the ratings and bring home the money. Why not? Alaskan’s turned on her, the conservatives turned on her, the democrats whipped her (and McCain’s) butt in the last election, and the liberal media is always making fun of her. If I were her, I would quit too. Why slink off in dispare? Take the money and entertain us. The smartest decision they have made to date!!

What cracks me up are those idiots that think she could actually win a presidential race against President Obama. She can’t even finish a full term as a state Governor, what makes them think she would finish a full term as President Of The United States? I will be laughing when they announce their reality tv show…lmao (you see, they couldn’t accept money from the television stations so long as she was a governor…now they can)

President….ROFLMAO….thats is funny.

Governors Collaborate to do their part!!

news governors

In September NGA Chair Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty launched the 2007-2008 NGA Chair’s Initiative – Securing a Clean Energy Future, proclaiming “America is ready for bold, innovative energy policies that will make us safer, more independent and better stewards of the planet. We’ve been asleep at the switch for too long – the time for action is now.”

 Securing a Clean Energy Future (SCEF) is designed to: 

  • Identify new opportunities for states to save energy, support clean alternatives and encourage deployment of new technologies;
  • Convene high-profile events and stakeholder meetings to advance this agenda;
  • Produce toolkits and guides that analyze and examine current best practices;
  • Establish state challenge grants for enhanced energy planning;
  • Explore state compacts and state-industry partnerships that address initiative policy goals.
  • Raise state and national awareness of the importance of clean energy; 

In November, Minnesota Gov. Pawlenty and SCEF Taskforce co-chair Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius announced a groundbreaking public-private partnership with Google and Intel Corporation’s Climate Savers Computing Initiative, that aims to reduce energy use from computers, servers and related equpment. 

In December, the SCEF Initiative held the Governors’ Summit on Alternative Transportation Fuels and Advanced Vehicles, in Tampa, Florida. Florida Gov. Charlie Crist joined Gov. Pawlenty, Gov. Sebelius, and Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer during a Governors’ Roundtable to discuss alternative transportation fuels, clean vehicles and other technologies and policies that offer the potential to reduce our dependence on foreign oil and lower greenhouse gas emissions. 

At the Governors Summit the governors released A Call to Action, a report outlining the current energy challenges the United States faces, defining the role of states in developing clean energy in the future and presenting a roadmap for states interested in achieving the goals of the SCEF Initiative. 

For more information on the Securing a Clean Energy Future initiative, please visit www.nga.org/ci. To speak with one of NGA’s experts on this issue, please contact the NGA Office of Communications at 202-624-5301.

This is an informational post with links to various places of interest. I hope you enjoy. I find it interesting to see what different government groups are doing. I am happy to see the Governors Association come together in an effort to address our concerns.

California For Sale?

Posted by italco on May 14, 2009

Arnold…what are you doing? You can’t sell the State of California!

Oh, you are having a city block sale…well thats different then.

I am kidding of course. Looks like a good oportunity for Property Investors to buy some State Owned property at bargain prices. Check out the story written on Reuters

“California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is planning the sale of some state properties including the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, San Quentin State Prison and the Orange County Fairgrounds to raise cash, the Los Angeles Times said, citing a copy of a proposal. The sale would raise $600 million to $1 billion, and is likely to be included in the governor’s revised budget plan on Thursday, the paper said.” http://www.reuters.com/article/domesticNews/idUSTRE54D17X20090514
