RE: Permanent Fund

Like I stated, it was my opinion (and) I'm sure the Alaskan Government probably used part of the dividend to pay for the president's visit to Alaska, where else would they get the ¢600 million to pay for the president to be in Alaska for 4 days and 3 nights? I know Alaska doesn't have that kind of $$ to squander.

And if you haven't noticed the Alaska PFD is dwindling away, not even helping out the Alaskans each year. They have more and more people coming to Alaska just to be able to get a part of their share of the PFD given out. I don't know everything but those that are yelling the most are probably the ones in government.

So again this was just my concern about the PFD before it does run out.
