Alaska Clearing House

Congressman Don Young (R-Alaska) compared Saddam Hussein to Adolf Hitler and shutting Hussein down prevented a third world war. He said at a rare Anchorage news conference on February 24, 2006. From a real Alaskan Native opinion, Don Young also can be compared to dictators; Saddam Hussein and Adolf Hitler and also; Senator Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Governor Frank Murkowski (R-Alaska) are all like dictators ramming $452 million taxpayers' dollars for bridges that most Alaskans don't want in Ketchikan or Anchorage, Alaska.

Washington D.C. said no to bridges in Alaska. The American Taxpayers said no to the pork barrel bridge projects in Alaska. Yet, the $452 million of your Federal tax dollars went to Alaska anyway without the earmark for bridges, that savings should have gone to hurricane victims to rebuild their states. What happen? The American taxpayer got screwed is what happened.

Ruler Don Young is running for re-election seeking 18th term. Don Young is so arrogant by saying, I guarantee you I (would) beat him, (Tony Knowles) and then he's dead politically forever said Young. I think Tony Knowles will have something to say about that insult. If Tony Knowles runs against Don Young I believe Tony would win.

As for Senator John McCain (R-Arizona), he is doing his job trying to save the American taxpayer dollars from pork barrel spending spree by the Alaska delegation in Washington D.C. The only Republican with common sense to stop wasted spending of pork-barrel projects in Alaska.

In closing, we don't want your bridge to no-where in Ketchikan, Alaska. I think Hilary Clinton would make a great President of the United States and you should support Hilary if she is nominated. Congressman Young, it is time for you to retire from politics. You are sending all of us into the poor house. This is my own Alaskan Native opinion.
