Speaking of politics and stuff, our Gov (I) vetoed the payment to the Permanent Fund for the Alaskan dividend by half, instead of taxing oil companies, commercial fisheries, and outside workers, people who just come here and never spend a dime, and take the money with them. That PFD money goes straight into the economy, for food, fuel, power, tools, and everything else. Sure some people blow it on drugs or crap, but it circulates. His veto chopped off over a billion $$$$ of our economy to support a bloated state government that sorely needs to be cut and shrank.

Sarah gave us our dividend, and found a way to give us a $2500 bonus! She even got rid of the Governors jet.
