Which means the American people own that 62%.

Alaska still receives more federal dollars than it pays in to the kitty.

Just look at the Palins, I think Sarahs daughter gets something like 5k a month because her ex used to model in play girl, I some how doubt the court modified it much since then. Women like those pay checks comming in for doing absolutly nothing wether they are "conservative" or liberal. That is why I am a libritarian but I know that will never happen so the short answer is to learn russian.

Civil rights has almost become a euphomism for a one sided court system and legalized extortion. Men being able to beat their wives ended a LONG time ago.

I would not miss a single liberal program which is why I have no issues traveling to russia.
Another woman hater because he can't get or keep a woman.

I wonder why?

Probably hoping for a mail order bride.

Why don't you go start a new thread on your favorite subject? It's out of place here.

I agree places like massachuteses and silicon valley have high tech industry and great universities (cal tech and MIT) but just because those places exist there does not mean its becuase of liberals, thoese unis have been there for a long time. Just because there are pockets of greatness and wealth in the midst of all the liberal loons does not mean that the liberals are the ones contribuing.

In fact I have heard that Cal tech and JPL now have to be barracaded in because there is so much poverty around them, it is a beautiful campus amongst poverty which was brougth by liberalism.
I'm sorry, but your post is so full of misinformation, I'm not even going to bother to engage in the discussion with you. The fact that you believe all that tripe informs me that there is no point in engaging you. Instead, it would be a colossal waste of my time and energy.

If you don't want to be a man and take care of children you father, keep it in your pants.

If you don't want to be a man and, even if divorced, feel some responsibility to a woman or women you made public vows to and signed legal documents making you a family together, and who might even be the mother of your children, then don't get married.

Otherwise, grow-up, step-up, and act like a responsible, respectful man and father.

Can't you just contain your snarling to one post?

Alaska actually has plenty of resources that could be used to sustain the economy of a small country.

Before you start barking that I'm "advocating succession," that's not my point at all.

Ima guessing if you quit smoking so much weed you'd have plenty of brains and motivation. Some of the most intelligent people I've ever met have been right here in Alaska.
