    Windfall tax lets Alaska rake in billions from Big Oil
    August 10, 2008

    Palin's administration last week gained legislative approval for a special $1,200 payment to every Alaskan to help cope with gas prices, which are among the highest in the country.

    That check will come on top of the annual dividend of about $2,000 that each resident could receive this year from an oil-wealth savings account.

    Every Alaskan get annual dividends, even bums and addict who buy lots of drugs from Crips and Bloods. In Alaska they can get three times what is sales for is calif..:confused::cuckoo:

    This is why Palin once had an 80% approval rating from the people of Alaska. She was a moderate who got support from Democrats almost as often as she did from the AK GOP.
