Man I get out of bed early anxious to read my paper...I tend to skim over anything about was in in Middle East...or Terrorist Trials...Mudslides in the Phillapines...ya know the stuff that makes out world scary...okay maybe not as scarrey as the "Letters to the Editor" boy let me tell you...we have some very opinionated people in this State...People who should come forth and speak out for their beliefs...this would allow people like me to come back and debate the issue...maybe this should be a new for of colume for the paper...a debate section....So today I take offense to Nancey Cuddebacks (from Anchorage) letter...she calls our children fact she calls most of us Alaskans Parasites and Losers.......
For the past few weeks the letters to the Daily News regarding the Legislature's consideration of withholding Permanent Fund dividend checks until the recipient actually moves back to the state are amusing at best. (I think this is sarcasm) Here's a news flash for those of you in the military. While I really appreciate the sacrifices you've made to this nation, if you hadn't been stationed in Alaska in the first place, you wouldn't qualify for the dividend. Not to mention the extra pay you already receive for living here in the first place, since Alaska is considered an overseas posting. I don't see what their problem is. If they actually come back, they'll have a nice chunk of change waiting for them. (I am not sure how to feel about this one...while here??? Come back??how bout just the ones from here???)
And for you college students, if you lived in any other state, other than Alaska, and went to an out-of-state school, you wouldn't be getting free money for being born in the state that you came from. If having to wait to collect your free money once you return is such a burden, then don't come back. (now that is one bitchy comment) We already have enough losers and parasites living here already (bad editing this word is used twice in this sentance), go inflict your problems on some other state.
(Nancy Cudeback from Anchorage, Letters to the Editor, Anchorage Daily News, March 3,2006)

I am offended that an Alaskan would feel this way about our children. Either she has none or has enough money to support them all while they are away at college. Seems IF my child chose to leave state for an education that the state does not provide she should still recieve that divedend...especially if there is immediate family still residing in the state. Seems that money would not only help her surrvive...but aid her in returning home is proven that most Alaskans leave the is also proven that the majority of those raised here also return...
But the divedend issue is not what buggs me...this woman made it sound like the state is full of parasitic lossers....who is she to judge like that??? Maybe she should leave.
So to all my parasitic losser friends and family I bid you a good for the bug spray.

I haven’t been paying much attention to the news lately…and I am a little confused by your write up…but I think People should physically be in state to pick up the PFD.

College students, who choose to change their state of residence, should NOT get their dividends. They chose to change their residence to get the “State resident” discount offered by the collages.

It sounds like you are saying that they will also save them until they return to state, THAT IS BOGUS, you should only get them the years you were actually a resident, (minus Alaska college students, who keep their Alaska residence or with cases of extreme medical issues).

I did here though that they are talking about NOT giving it to minors, who do not attend school regularly. Now we will be known as the state the pays their children to go to school.
