That came up during the RUN FOR POTUS parade must be where you get the 'house' thing from. I do not recall if Alaska has a Govenor's mansion or not since they move their capital each time the salmon run.
    No, they do not move the capital. There has been talk of centralizing the capital in the matsu valley for years, but it has never happened.

    Is there even any pretense at honesty with you or do you just spout off whatever idiot nonsense you can come up with and hope someone believes your childish, moronic, hysterical bull****?

    "Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin used a government "per diem" allowance to charge the state for more than 300 nights spent at home (graphic) and spent another $43,490 on travel for her children and husband, The Post's James V. Grimaldi and Karl Vick report today."

    Look you are the one who needs to grow up and stop your attempt to provoke by trolling. Speaking of trolling if you cannot understand that I was joking when I said that they time thier moving the capital to the salmon runs you ned to readjust mind a bit.

    I was making fun about the movement since yes I was well aware that hey made many atatempts to have a movement..

    Juneau Journal; Push to Move Alaska's Capital Has Central Theme - The New York Times

    ALSO from WIKI

    "Relocation controversy
    In 1960, Anchorage Daily Times publisher Robert Atwood began an editorial push to relocate the capital somewhere nearer to commerce and the Alaskan mainstream. This effort culminated in ballot initiatives to move the capital to the "Cook Inlet-Railbelt area" (1960) and to "Western Alaska ... not within thirty miles of Anchorage" (1962). Both measures were defeated at the polls, but a third initiative in 1974 passed, followed by a 1976 ballot which selected Willow as the site of the new capital. In 1978 and 1982, however, measures to fund the relocation of the capital were defeated. Outgoing governor Jay Hammond, describing his administration's handling of the capital relocation question, said that in the end he was able to "lance this boil". [1] In 1994, a ballot initiative to move the capital to Wasilla was defeated, as was a 2002 measure to hold sessions of the state legislature in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough. [2]

    Forgive me if I think Inferno deserves a little better than your versions of "facts".

    Only among the really ignorant ones. Igloos are a Canadian architectural phenomenon, not traditionally found in Alaska.

    Thank you. But facts mean nothing to a good guffaw at one's own ignorance.
