Hopefully they will join

Hopefully they will join forces & fight to keep the OBAMANATION OF DESOLATION & his distructive policies, followers, out of Alaska, or restricted to a minimum which will help slow them down in their desire to drag Alaska down.
That would be considered a GR8 Session, would it not?

Oops! With the new law Obama just inacted against Americans, or anyone that disagrees with him & his distructive Hope & Change thingy, i could be in trouble.

No really, i hope that Alaskans can ALL work together to prosper & protect Alaskans, as we are about to become totally isolated with all the trouble i see coming World wide & to the lower 48.
We need to reach back & grab our heads & yank them out, yank them out so we can see that if we fail to work together as Alaskans, then when the trouble comes we will be in worse trouble than can be imagined.

I could see them having a great session if only they would devote more time, money and effort into using railroad tracks, pipelines and in some cases even roads to get Alaska great resources to the people and cities that need them. You can see it now with a couple of places having a very difficult time getting much needed fuel supplies due to the ice on the Sea. Why isn't their a railroad going into those places that could pull a tanker car of over 30,000 gallons to them as needed?

Why would anybody even

Why would anybody even remotely think that this session will be any more productive than the last session? I think that they all should be thrown in jail for dereliction of duty. None of them are voting for the voters. They're all thinking of themselves and their political parties. And it's the same for the congress in Washington D.C. We, the voters, need to flush them all, from Juneau to D.C., and start with a new batch. It sure couldn't be any worse than what we have now!

Situation Normal All F(ouled)

Situation Normal All F(ouled) Up. There will be delays, extended sessions, meetings, "I'll call them back to a special session...", all the while milking the State for the excessive per diem and allowances.

I guess if spending our money

I guess if spending our money in hotels and drinking & bickering for 90 days is productive, then we should be in good shape. Now if you mean productive as in being there for the people of Alaska.... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHaHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA seriously???
