The Palins car wash

From Modern Care

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s ownership in a carwash was nothing more than a real estate investment. Although she and her husband, Todd Palin, did hold a 40 percent stake in a company called Anchorage Car Wash LLC, the business never got off the ground, according to Carolin Wells, one of Palin’s partners in the aborted venture.

“Things happened on both sides, and we never even got it going. We just sold the land and went on our merry way,” said Wells, who held 60 percent of the company with her husband Ray. “There was just nothing really but a land deal. I did go and get an LLC right away just to protect us because, when we first started, we thought we were going to go ahead [with the project].”

The Washington Post reported Sept. 2 that the Republican candidate for vice president had been part of a failed Anchorage carwash while she was mayor of Wasilla. The Post said Palin failed to disclose her interest in the company when filing paperwork as a candidate for governor in Alaska’s 2006 election.

While Anchorage Car Wash LLC was technically still registered with the state when Palin campaigned for the governorship, the Wells and Palins had already sold the property and parted ways by the time Palin filed her financial disclosure forms with the state.

According to state records, Wells filed a certificate of organization for the company in 2004, listing herself as the registered agent. She also outlined in an initial biennial report that the Wells each held 30 percent of the company and the Palins 20 percent. There is no record of a business license for Anchorage Car Wash LLC on file with the state, which would have been required to run an operating business.

Public records show that the Wells and Palins purchased a plot of commercial property in Anchorage on July 1, 2004 and then sold it for a small profit Jan. 4, 2006. Records also show Palin filed financial disclosure forms for her governor’s race June 1, 2006, nearly five months after the land was sold.

So what happened?

“I had always wanted to do a carwash,” Wells said, explaining that her husband knew Todd Palin’s brother, who initially spoke to the Palins on the Wells’ behalf. After some discussion, the Palins agreed to be silent partners, she noted.

The project ran out of steam, however, when the man hired to run the operation backed out. Neither the Wells nor Palins had the desire to run a carwash day-to-day, she said.
“We just decided to disband it,” Wells said. “It was actually just an investment for both of us over a piece of property as it turned out.”

Once the property sold, Wells did not maintain current registration with the state. Alaska requires businesses file biennial reports every two years. Wells did not file a second biennial report for the company, due Jan. 2, 2006, two days before signing deed papers for the sale of the land.

The state’s division of corporations, business and professional licensing didn’t issue a customary, 60-day notice requesting the biennial report and associated fees until Feb. 11, 2007. When Wells did not respond to the letter, the state issued an involuntary dissolution of Anchorage Car Wash on April 3, 2007. Gov. Palin took office Dec. 4, 2006.

While sounding ominous, involuntary dissolutions are fairly common. Alaska averages approximately 675 such terminations each year, according to Gordon Evans, a business registration examiner with the state. Dissolutions occur primarily, he said, due to failure to maintain a registered agent or file biennial reports.

“We have had a number of people actually request to be involuntarily dissolved,” Evans said, noting that even in such cases, the state must still issue a 60-day notice and follow typical involuntary dissolution procedures.
Evans also said it is not unusual for companies to register with the state but never actually conduct business. For example, several foreign corporations are on record in Alaska and maintain current paperwork but do not actively operate businesses. “They’re not even doing business here,” Evans stated, “but they want the corporation in place just in case.”

Companies that ultimately do not maintain a registered agent, file a biennial report or pay associated licensing fees do not need to notify the state or provide any reasons for the inactivity, he said.

The Duggar family of 19 Kids and Counting are the original grifting family

Years ago Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar took part in Jim Sammons Financial Freedom seminar. It teaches you how to be debt free.

While I have never taken the class, I have heard and read bits of it.  The class advises you to buy used and save the rest, build from scratch like your home.  Basically get the materials donated and have a few friends to help help you build.  (Sounds like Housegate).

The Duggars did just that.  Except I think TLC paid for it.  Also they use that house for a home church so they can get a tax deduction.  I have also read the Duggars leaned on their old church for donations such as clothing to they would not have to buy.  Sounds like grifting to me.

Sarah Palin is not the first politician Joe McGinniss busted. And you'll never guess who it is!

 From Publisher's Weekly

McGinniss's biography of Edward M. Kennedy is a salacious read containing the things that make a bestseller: sex, incest, money, politics, power, compelling personalities. The problem, though, is, can you believe McGinniss? Although the bibliography lists 73 titles, there is not one footnote. There are juicy tidbits about members of the family. Joseph Kennedy progresses from a WW I draft dodger to U.S. Ambassador to the Court of St. James. He beds innumerable women, manipulates the stock market, becomes a Nazi sympathizer and anti-Semite. Rose is portrayed as the ultimate holder of Irish grudges: when her husband had his stroke she delayed calling a doctor while she played golf. A devout Catholic, she was actually happy about Joe's affairs because then she didn't have to sleep with him. Retarded Rosemary was lobotomized because she was considered a less-than-perfect Kennedy. There are dark hints that Joseph may have had an incestuous relationship with her. Sexual innuendo is rampant throughout the book. When McGinniss finally gets around to concentrating on Ted, we are given a picture of a lonely boy raised by servants. The first crisis of his life comes when he is expelled from Harvard for cheating. His father was furious, but only because Ted got caught. We see Ted as an ineffective campaign manager for JFK in 1960 and we see him being forced by his father to run for JFK's former Senate seat in 1962. In 1968 after RFK's assassination, Ted turned "reflexively, to women, alcohol and other drugs." The book ends with the Chappaquiddick tragedy in 1969 and the questions raised by Ted's alibi. Thus the biography misses Ted's presidential campaign in 1980 and the events surrounding the rape charges against his nephew William Smith in 1991. Employing journalistic histrionics and amateur psychology in his attempts to find what makes this family and this one man obsessed with winning at all costs, McGinniss concludes that the Kennedys are all-American frauds. The reader will wonder if McGinniss isn't one also

I hate abortion

Seriously I do.

I wish abortion had never been created.  I myself would never have one and would advise someone not to have one unless it was absolutely necessary.

However I respect Roe v. Wade and a woman's right to choose.  I think preventing a woman from having abortion would do more harm than good, especially if she was raped.  it would be like punishing her twice, being raped, then forced to have the baby.

Have you ever noticed most anti-abortionists are men?

Course it's easy for them to be anti-abortion, they don't get fat, emotional, hemorrhoids, and morning sickness.  Most of all they do not have to go through labor.  All they do is spread their seed.

Happy Inauguration Day!

I hope the Romneys are watching it at home in LaJolla, Utah, Belmont, or New Hampshire.  I also hope Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, are watching as well.

Is it me or are these pictures really gross?

Frothy is pictured with Joy-Anna Duggar, daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle the Quiverfull freaks from 19 Kids and counting.

If I were Jim-Bob I would say "Frothy, gets your hands off my kid!"

Also this came from a Duggar fan's instagram:

Jim Bob having his picture taken with a bunch of young women wearing bikini bottoms?  Guess Michelle didn't scream Nike! first.  In the Duggar family when the pass a scantily clad woman the girls are supposed to scream out "Nike" and the boys cover their eyes.

This is what every Christian should be

I am a believer and I admit I sin.  Sometimes I cannot help myself.  And I ask God for forgiveness.  Hopefully he will forgive me.

Back to Chuck Heath Sr.-his military service

He was born in 1938 therefore would have been 18 in 1956. There was a limited draft that year and Adlai Stevenson proposed ending the draft during his presidential campaign.

If Chuck did serve you damn know well Sarah would be touting that. She mentioned he did in Going Rogue.

Friday, January 11, 2013

So why did Chuck Heath move his family to Alaska?

As we all know Sarah was born in Sandpoint Idaho in 1964.  When she was three months old Chuck moved his wife and young children to Alaska.  Does anyone know why he did that?

Was he running from something?

A better job offer?

The real definition of going rogue

From Urban Dictionary

slang term for having anal, rather than vaginal sex.


If Bristol Palin didn't want to get knocked up, she should have thought about going rogue.

Wednesday, January 9, 2013

So whatever happened to the DWTS baby?

It's been alleged that Bristol was knocked up during her first run during DWTS.  If she was whatever happened to that baby?

Did she keep it?

Give it up for adoption?

White it out?

If she did deliver it was it a boy or a girl?

RIP Dar Miller

Darlene "Dar" Miller passed away four years ago today. Here is the original article in the Anchorage Daily News.

WASILLA -- Darlene "Dar" Miller's death in a house fire last week staggered coworkers all too familiar with death, loss and grief.

Miller spent the last eight years as a nurse with Mat-Su Regional Homecare and Hospice, an organization that provides in-home care for terminally ill patients and support for their families.

Her peers are finding there's no coping mechanism to ease the shock of such a sudden, traumatic loss.

"We're experts in grief and the dying process, but it's different when it's one of your own," said Barbara Mistler, the center's director. "Who takes care of the caregivers?"

Firefighters found the 54-year-old Miller unconscious and badly burned, but still alive in her Wasilla home Jan. 5. Though a cause has yet to be established, the long-smoldering fire apparently started near a bed on the first floor, burning so hot it charred beams and melted pictures on the wall. Miller's two dogs died next to her.

She was flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for burn treatment, but she died the next day.

Miller shared the home with partner Michaele Hannam. She was not available for comment.

Mistler told staffers about Miller's death the afternoon of Jan. 6. A mental health counselor conducted two debriefing sessions. The director tried to lighten workloads where she could, to give stunned employees a break.

"We deal with death every day. But when it's somebody close, it's like all these deaths... you tuck away a little of the hurt," said Judy Hayes, a hospice nurse who considered Miller her mentor. "When it's somebody you know, it all comes out. The emotions aren't just for Dar. It's a bigger hurt, a bigger loss."

Miller's desk at the center's Bogard Road office remains as she left it: a tidy memorial with a picture of her dogs -- spunky cattle dogs called heelers, one young, one old.

A common thread emerged about Miller's personal side during a visit Monday to her office.

She was a rugged Canadian woman who wore mukluks and a leather coat in winter and had a thing for pickup trucks. She loved escaping to her Trapper Creek cabin with Hannam. She possessed a dry sense of humor, amazing penmanship and a propensity for goofy sayings like "God love a duck."

She combined a knack for listening without judging and a total lack of phoniness, said Vicki Turtle, a home health aide and information technician with 23 years at Mat-Su home care and hospice.

Miller started out as a neo-natal nurse practitioner but wearied of watching babies die, coworkers said. Starting with the Mat-Su organization in 2001, Miller took on the role of mentor. She was one of four hospice nurses and worked as a case manager.

Turtle remembered hearing Miller telling new nurses, "We cannot resolve everybody's problems. We're here to make them comfortable and get them to the next place."

Longtime home health aide Ahna Simonds leaned on Miller in tough situations -- patients with problems that made dressing changes painful or clients as young as 10.

"Dealing with younger patients, it's really hard to go into a home," Simonds said. "You've got to be able to talk with somebody, or just cry together and be angry."

Miller's loss also sends ripples through the lives of an unknown number of patients and their families in homes and assisted-care facilities throughout the Mat-Su.

Last year, 120 hospice patients died. Miller knew them all, Hayes said, as well as those from years past.

One was Mary Hann, who died in October at the age of 84.

Miller was Hann's primary hospice nurse over a remarkable two-year period; patients don't qualify for hospice until they're given less than six months to live, but Hann died slowly, a little at a time, as the arteries of her brain hardened, her daughter said.

Miller showed empathy and compassion even as Hann "pretended she could function better than she could," said daughter Melinda Glass. Hannam, a hospice volunteer, would take Hann on trips to get books, get out of the house.

Glass was glad her mother died before she had to hear the news of Miller's death, she said. "I would not have told her. It would have destroyed her."

Miller had 12 patients when she died, said Hayes, the other hospice case manager at the office. She spent last week sharing the sad news over and over again, patient by patient.

Mistler said she plans to post a photo of Miller in the hospice room as a remembrance. Some employees are still so stricken by her death they can't talk about it.

Some say she'd be telling them to buck up.

"I can just hear her," Turtle said. " 'Don't fuss over me. Have a party. Move on.' "

White Trash in the snow

If you haven't read White Trash in the snow over on The Palin Place by Allison, I recommend it.  Very entertaining.

Just a reminder it is fiction, but it hits close to home regarding the Palin family.

New Congress convenes today
