Start from scratch
By Don Hoff Jr.

Governor Frank Murkowski, you had your chance and you blew it
with Alaskans. Negotiating contracts in secret with big oil
companies. Your arrogance cost your re-election as Governor,
even your own Republican Party doesn't want you to represent
Alaska belongs to the Indigenous People. The oil, gas and coal
belong to the Indigenous People. The fish and game belong to
the Indigenous People. The timber and minerals belong to the
Indigenous People. Governor Murkowski, you have no rights to
gave away resources that don't belong to you. You don't even
have the authority to negotiate with Alaskan Natives because
the State of Alaska does not recognize Tribes or Indian Country.
The oil and gas is not going anywhere now until the next governor
is elected. We should start from scratch on negotiate the sale
of oil and gas with Alaskans, Native Alaskans first and then
oil companies. It is our oil, not theirs.
It is all a brain-washing tactic to Alaskans and America to get
oil from Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The real
problem is America needs to build our own fuel refineries and
open the oil fields in Oklahoma and Texas that is tucked away
for a raining day or start a war with the Arab Countries and
take their oil and gas like the good old days like they did ours
Maybe with all the Alaska's surplus oil revenues this year can
bring back the Longevity Bonus Program for the Senior Citizens
of Alaska and make it retroactive? And or put the surplus oil
revenues into the principle of the Permanent Fund Program.
This is my own opinion.
