Re: 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.

Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.

I wish the north eastern states would do this for the hydrofracking.. And not because it takes away any natural beauty but for any effects it has on the water table. Why should people be forced to have crappy water just so a company can make some profits? Any company who is risking the water tables and supplies this way aught to be paying those effected for filters and access to clean water.

Re: Alaskans get $1,174 checks from state's oil wealth
The resources of the state belong to all Alaska residents. When the pipeline project came along, former Gov. Jay Hammond was instrumental in establishing the Permanent Fund. It is earnings from this that are shared. The income is from royalties on oil and gas extracted, basically, plus some investments the fund managers have made over the years.

The TAPS line from Prudhoe Bay to Valdez is carrying less every year, and eventually it will decline to the point that oil cannot be shipped at all. It used to carry over 2 million gallons a day (much of it destined for CA refineries) and is now under 600,000. The amount the residents receive is going to continue to drop due to the declining revenues.

Its not fair to the rest of the country. No one in any other state gets a cut from their states natural resources. There was a time when NY had control of its own port until other states got jealous of how rich it was making the state .

Gee, that Palin is a horrible creature isn't she? Imagine, using her office to have the peoople of Alaska share monetarily what is rightfully theirs and not the corporations.

This is exactly why the great people of the left and right agenda have rightfully put her down.

She is so terrible.

Re: Alaskans get $1,174 checks from state's oil wealth
Sarah had nothing to do with it. It was created in the 70's. All Alaskans almost immediately got a $1000 check. This was only for established Alaskans not newbies.

Some lawyers got mad because they were newbies and sued that everyone should get it the minute they land at the aiport. That was finally resolved and people had to live here at a least a year before qualifying and if you leave more then a few months you don't qualify. The plan was to eliminate snowbirds who just come for the summer.

For every year since the checks were issued and finally reached about $2000. Then they reduced and are at the level they are now. Sarah would have been powerless to change or do anything about it. It was entrenched into the system because the alternative was to give it to the state government and they have a long history of totally wasting vast sums of money and then wishing another bonanza would come.

If it wasn't for the permanent fund dividend the sheep would not pay attention to the funds existence and insist on it's protection and the government would have been able to totally empty the fund for stupid shit like studies of the difference between white and black mice when exposed to frozen water.

The government has tried a few times to change things so they could empty the fund for dumb government shit but the people have a tantrum because that would endanger their little moment of happiness before winter sets in. So Government Hammond was a wise man giving the leash to the people in a way that kept the people awake and on guard.
