Alaskans get $1,174 checks from state's oil wealth
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Most Alaska residents will soon be getting a check for $1,174 simply because they live there.

Each person's share of the state's vast oil wealth was announced with much fanfare in Anchorage Tuesday, with Gov. Sean Parnell ripping open a gold-colored envelope to reveal the number. This day is so widely anticipated in Alaska that the announcement of the Permanent Fund Dividend amount was carried live on television statewide, and dozens tuned in to watch a live webcast by the governor's office.

Yep, each member of the family gets a check.

It has been an excellent program over the years.

Palin's state seems to love Socialism.

So Hugo Chavez is Satan himself for nationalizing his countries natural resources, but Alaska would never do something as crazy as pay the natives their fair share......

Alaskans pay more for consumer goods due to higher shipping costs -- so I suppose it evens itself out.

I know this is true when I was up there in the early 1990's people used to easily get $4,000 a piece. A family of 10-12 could afford to live on the dividend income through the winter. Not so anymore, and how come, the first gulf war was under way, gas soared to 1.78 a gallon.....now its currently 3.69 a gallon, I guess the Japs and the chineese cant afford high oil prices, since all that Alaskan oil is sold to them instead of kept in our own country. Seems like a big fat scam to me.

This is a ripoff... according to Wiki, Alaska has 710.231 residents.

710.231 X 1174$ = 834 million $.

Seriously?

Re: Alaskans get $1,174 checks from state's oil wealth
If you lived here you would realize our cost of living is 36% greater than living in Seattle and a >% than most of lower 48. We have some of highest gas prices in nation, electricity rates are high and the fuel oil needed for heating runs $400+ per month. AND if you want to leave here you find Alaska Airlines has you captive and its $1000 a ticket to lower 48. So this PFD comes no where close to covering expenses living here.

So when white people receive handouts from the government it's no big deal but if black people get money they're called lazy bums. Where's the outrage from you tea party people. Will Sarah Palin reject her check. Damn hypocrites.
