Wonder what everyone is gonna do with that extra 3 bucks per day?
This is so wrong.
Alaskans should be sharing the funds with the rest of the country.
(do I really need to put the /s tag on it?)
What was even more upsetting, was all the people here who kept repeating this lie and refused to listen to, or attacked anyone who pointed it out.
I especially like this comment: « Stir_the_pot wrote on Thursday, Oct 06 at 05:22 PM »
Too bad the republicans are continuing to maintain every policy they can to destroy the economy. If they didn’t, the checks would likely be $11,000 instead of $1100.

With comments like this one, Alaska is not the same place I used to live in back in Prepipeline days of yore. Kind of true for every newspaper comments section from sea to shining sea. They seem to attract the true nut jobs.
They would have to live up here a year before they get the first check... you can keep them down there.
Another Palin dividend!
That’s nice. All I get here in Maryland is higher tax’s so they can give the money to Casa De Maryland.
How about this for a scenario. Alaska secedes from the union, elects Sarah Palin president and becomes a leading oil exporting country. Maybe that’s her secret plan. Maybe all us Palin supporters need to move up there and secure that border.
I think the oil company payments are even more generous than that. I met a couple at LAX one time who were Alaskans
just coming home from Vegas. They each got more than that, plus an Alaskan resident woman with a child under 5 gets a good payment....have a kid every five years = no need for a job....
Native Alaskans (ethnic) get much much more they told me.
