From the Governor:
Happy New Year! We had a glorious few days to ring it in at our remote cabin near the base of Mt. McKinley. No cell service, no TV; ’twas nice! I recommend getting back to some simplicity that includes just chilling with friends and family like that every once in awhile. Now we’re back home in civilization (which ironically many Outside would characterize as merely more simplicity in yet another, albeit larger, “remote cabin” with indoor plumbing and electricity at least!). First sight upon our return? A mama moose in the yard keeping watch while we were away.
Now to tackle a snowy bon fire to clean up that wonderful clutter of Christmas and our 20′ tree! S’mores for dinner, anyone?! I hope you had great holidays!
I’d publicly announced New Year’s Resolutions on Fox the other night, but found out technical difficulties prohibited responses to audio, so the interview didn’t jib well. So resolutions shall be repeated here to hold myself accountable in 2014:
1) Eat more meat.
2) Help others make the Federal Government as irrelevant in our lives as possible.
3) Live out Coach John Wooden’s “Pyramid of Success”, encouraging everyone to do our individual part to live with industriousness, self-discipline and selflessness so we, collectively as a nation, can restore America to her exceptionalism. Certainly don’t wait for politicians or cultural icons to do it – it’s imperative we do our own individual part.
Finally, quite glad to hear the new political year kicked off with Sen. Rand Paul suing the President for violating our rights. With that, I’ll add another resolution besides the aforementioned that result in encouraging a growing entitlement-leaning populace to value work ethic and independence, thus being able to live life vibrantly.
Here’s #4: Be even more aggressive in calling out media for practicing lapdog laziness. Hey reporters, we know that once Barack Obama got elected you bailed on keeping government accountable; you’ve been abject failures there. Case in point: Nixon’s presidency was over once reporters busted him for allowing his people to spy on political opponents. Today, the Obama Presidency’s hallmark is spying (in addition to violating economic and Constitutional liberties), for which you celebrate Barack Obama. Transparently hypocritical, much?
Take a stand, America! You deserve better. Resolve to live life vibrantly by looking to family, faith, and freedom in this new year!
