The Duchess of the Duchy of Murkowski, once referred to as Alaska, one Lisa Oil-louski Murkowski, wants you to chortle your shorts over this massive tax ripoff Donnie Two Scoops just signed off on. It’s the Christmas present that is going to save you and all of Alaska from fiscal and economic disaster.


No taxes of any real consequence are collected on Alaska oil extraction until the price of a barrel of oil reaches $110 per barrel.

And all that new oil exploration in ANWR will add half-a-billion to a billion dollars a year in new state tax credits paid out to foreign oil companies.

So add all of that to your state income tax bill, soon to come, while in the meantime watching the Permanent Fund rapidly disappear into the coffers of the oil companies.

Yes, Duchess Oil-louski has given all Alaskans a wonderful Christmas present, a greased-up stocking full of coal oil.

And it will cost you a fortune to clean up the mess while the Duchess and her oil-soaked cronies laugh it up while stealing you blind.
