Joshua Bennett comments at the, The Party is Over for the Ice Arabs, post:
I have met and know several of the Alaskan legislators, they are seriously some of the most stupid people I have met. None of them could run a coffee stand and yet they think they can understand and run the Alaska economy. I've listened to them get asked pretty good questions on local talk shows, usually softball ones at that, and they just duh duh uh their way through their answers. These fools have blown more stolen loot on nothing than any fools I have heard of. The budget now is somewhere over $5 billion? Well the last couple years it's been over $8 billion. For a State with 700,000 people. The State, particularly agencies like the DOT, wastes so much money is laughable. Of course now they say "there is no way we can just cut our way out of this". Really? Don't spend any money and you will still be broke? This governor just hired 3 of his old buddies for over $100,000 a month each, but they can't cut their way out of this. This governor is a moron. Palin was a moron. Parnell was a moron. And every stinking legislator in Alaska is a moron. Someone should write a book on how a State can have a $42 billion dollar surplus fund and be broke in a couple years. I don't mind them being broke, in fact I think it's great. Except now of course they want to milk us cows dry. One good thing that could happen is a mass migration of folks out of Alaska. I can only hope.
