Churchill2004: Corvus:You mean the old America that was socialist?Not related to the oil fund, but what the hell's up with her glasses in that pic? They're not symmetrical- one side is half-framed, the other full-framed. I've never seen glasses like that, and I've bought a new pair of glasses every year or two since I was in 1st grade. They look like someone smacked her upside the head and broke them.
Headso: Little known fact: In America we all used to get checks each year based on the amount of resources extracted from the ground.
Frank N Stein: Alaska is great. There's so much open space, beautiful terrain, and amazing wildlife that one can easily spend a day away from another human and explore. Its not hard to find an empty stream to fish, or lazily kayak a bay to observe whales and seals, or spent a day hiking up a mountain.
Corvus: HeadLever: vudukungfu: Populated by mostly Natives?Alaska does have by far the highest population of Native Americans at about 16 to 17 percent. That is another large federal obligation on top of everythign else.So they depend on government handouts? I've been told those on the right government hand outs makes you dependent on government, why would you want that states to be that?Why shouldn't they be bootstrapy and be able to provide to their own populations by themselves?
theorellior: I don't think Billo's ancestors fresh off the boat from County Cavan saw much in the way of Alaskan-style wilderness in northern New Jersey.
