EPA Director Shows No R-S-P-E-C-T for Alaskans

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 15, 2014

Before we go any further, yes, I know that I spelled the word “respect” incorrectly.  I suppose I wanted to emphasize that many of those serving in this President’s administration are seemingly cut from the same cloth.  When I read the following entry on Chuck Heath, Jr.’s Facebook page, I must confess that I felt a range of emotions starting with anger, then sadness and again anger.

Here’s what Chuck Heath, Jr. wrote:

Gina McCarthy, the head of the EPA and an Obama appointee, visited Alaska and was given a couple of small gifts from the locals. One of the gifts was a jar of moose meat. McCarthy is quoted as saying, “that stuff could gag a maggot”. She was also given a souvenir pin from the community of North Pole. When asked about it, she said “I threw the f…ing thing away!”

Zero respect for the traditions and kindness of Alaskans, and it looks like our own Alaska Senator Begich has stepped up to defend her.

Take a look at McCarthy’s record on carbon credits, Keystone Pipeline stance, etc., and you’ll get a good look at someone that is thwarting American resource development and energy independence.

This is another reason we want the Federal government to STAY OUT OF OUR BUSINESS!

I can only venture to guess that Ms. McCarthy has absolutely no clue as to the amount of work that went into that life-sustaining jar of moose meat.  There was the planning and preparation for the hunt.  There was the time invested in the hunt itself with no guarantee that it would be successful.  Finally, if the hunter is successful, the meat must be properly field-dressed and then cured, canned, or frozen in order to preserve it so that the meat is safe to eat. A lot of work went into that gift of canned moose meat!

Would it have really been that difficult to simply say “thank you”?  Was it necessary for a government official on a taxpayer funded trip to drop the F-bomb?  Somewhere along the way, Ms. McCarthy missed the important lesson of “do unto others”.

Is it really too much to expect R-E-S-P-E-C-T from public servants? Apparently so.

RGJ: Sarah Palin speech raises $200K for Safari Club in Reno

Posted by joshpainter on January 30, 2011

Some 2,000 formally-dressed members of the Safari Club International, after paying $100 each for what the Gazette-Journal billed as “Reno’s hottest ticket,” crowded into the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino’s Tuscany Ballroom Saturday night to hear Sarah Palin speak of the importance of protecting the environment and how Hunting and fishing are part of the American “heritage” and the nation’s “exceptionalism”:

“Don’t retreat, stand tall,” Palin told the crowd as she emphasized the importance of “responsible conservation.”

Palin also spoke of Second Amendment rights.

“We need to keep tabs on what the White House is telling us,” she also said.

She later said Americans would need to “count on Congress,” where the GOP regained control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November’s election.

But Palin emphasized the importance of local governments in setting policy.

“The best (management) is local” not “bureaucrats thousand of miles away” in Washington making the decisions, she said, drawing on her experience as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, before becoming that state’s governor.

[…]

Political science professor Fred Lokken of Truckee Meadows Community College said he considers Palin’s Safari Club appearance a “coup” for Reno and an “excellent” move for her.

“It’s always been a who’s who of some of the prominent conservative Republicans, so frankly for her either to get the invite or be able to wrangle the invite, it really helps her as she tries to position for 2012 and after,” he said. “This is one of the places to the seen.”

Palin’s visit will carry momentum beyond Reno since the Safari Club event draws visitors from afar, many of them wealthy.

[…]

“Being able to come to a group like this (gives) some street cred that might help her to sort of reestablish or bolster her efforts at building a campaign for 2012,” Lokken said. “It’s a guns rights place. They are huge in the Second Amendment. Her whole connection to Alaska probably makes her one of the most logical people they have had in years.”

Smith predicted that in a few months, Gov. Palin will be seen and heard again in Nevada at “Republican headquarters.”

Palin: Rhetoric or Reality? Sarah Buys Her Caribou Tags

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on December 10, 2010

There’s been a great deal of hoop-la this week over Episode 4 of Sarah Palin’s Alaska in which she goes caribou hunting. There have been various questions ranging from the valid to the ridiculous. As tempting as it is, I’m going to refrain from addressing the ridiculous but questions such as whether or not Sarah Palin obtained the required permits to hunt are certainly valid. During the filming of the show the following video was captured and has now been released to settle any questions regarding proper permits. ~Jackie~

From http://www.spalaska.com:
Apparently, some people are spreading rumors online that Sarah Palin didn’t have the proper permits for the caribou hunt that was featured in this past Sunday’s episode. As you can see for yourself, this rhetoric doesn’t stand up to reality. More

Governor Palin Shoots Down Anti-Hunting Hypocrisy

Posted by Adrienne Ross on December 5, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Governor Palin has been tweeting and Facebooking away about tonight’s episode of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.” Some on the Left never realized, apparently, that an animal had to be killed before eaten, just as they were appalled to learn that the halibut had to be caught and put to rest before we got to enjoy it. If the fish-clubbing episode drove them crazy–and it did–imagine the shape they’ll be in after the Governor hunts and shoots tonight. It’ll be fun to watch!

Earlier, she tweeted:

Check out this video of Ted Nugent talking about the next episode of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” and tune in to TLC… http://fb.me/wVDOcviU

Here’s the video to which she refers:

Governor Palin goes on to tweet about the absurdity of objecting to hunting:

1. “Controversial” Sarah Palin’s Alaska hunting episode tonight? Really?

2. Unless you’ve never worn leather shoes, sat upon a leather couch or eaten a piece of meat, save your condemnation of tonight’s episode.

3. I remain proudly intolerant of anti-hunting hypocrisy. :)

4. Tonight’s hunting episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska “controversial”? Really? Unless you’ve never worn leather… http://fb.me/HY3gXBVo

Tune in to “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” at 9 p.m. Eastern tonight on TLC.
