The Duke of the Duchy of Murkowski has nothing less in mind than the total destruction of the Permanent Fund to aid his oil buddies, and this bunch of 'bubbers' is so excited about this massive ripoff of the public purse, they are spending squillions of advertising dollars to convince us what a great deal this is. Never have I seen a steamrolling effort like this.
The rule of inverses tells us that if this thing were such a great deal for most of us, those who it in fact benefits would not be spending squillions gloating over what a great deal this is while trying to educate us of that supposed fact. The Duke is big into inverses: He is a firm believer in welfare, for example. He wants to give millionaires millions more, billionaires the barn along with the farm. They are his kind of people. The rest of us are just supposed to be part of his vast peonage, silent, compliant, complacent. Let Frank have his way, and he will peon you, me, everybody. Gotta have a jet plane to play in Frank's league, and most of us don't.
Any and all public servants who support this thievery should be replaced as quickly as possible. This proposal is nothing more than a front-loading to hell, providing a vast array of accounting toys with which any accountant half worth his salt can probably defer oil company taxes into the 22nd or 23rd centuries.
In the meantime, stay tuned. Last week it was JFK, LBJ, Karl Marx, Holmes Jr., and Rush Limbaugh. Next week's anti-tax messages will be from Mahatma Gandhi, Gautama Buddha, Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, and, of course, Jesus Christ, the number one dead leftie of them all.
