You're posts are usually my favorite to read here. You must be having an off day. PFD's are not what people are concerned with. Its pretty lame that that is what the lower 48 can boil this all down too.
In the same way lower oil prices make sanctions on Iran, Russia and other nation states more effective, the same is true in Alaska. Its an owner state. Simply put, The recourse, oil, timber, fishing and mining belong to the residents of Alaska. "Communist" dream is up for your interpretation. I once met Victor Fischer, arguably the most important man in Alaskan history. Hardly a communist then again anyone can qualify as a card carrying pinko these days.
If republicans practiced what they preach and new anything about fiscal responsibility Kansas and Alaska wouldn't be in these Extratuff times. Fact.
There are working families in remote villages, industry, retail shops, mom and pop shops all suffering because of bad tax codes and republican governance. Fact. Break it down to "ohh poor communist Alaskans don't get their PFD"s booh effing whooo." Middle class families are getting pinched and we don't expect you to understand cause gas prices are low you can go for a drive with your sweety and mow your lawn without breaking the bank. I don't have a yard and there is only 40 miles of road where I live. The gas prices here havent changed. Dutch Harbor Unalaska gas prices are still over $5.00 a gallon. We don't expect you to understand.
