No!! I would like to know how

No!! I would like to know how i to can get some of this States Free Money for doing absolutely nothing though. It amazes me the endless waste of money that this State & even Fed govt. spends on valueless studies or supposed specialists hirings that do nothing usually as well as produce nothing.

I got an idea, why don't you

I got an idea, why don't you get one of those Robber Freight Barren Franchises. You know the kind where a local (no-name) freight co hauls all the gas we burn in every station on the Kenai to Anchorage and back so our Government can bless it with an import duty! But that probably doesn't add a whole lot of expense too every gallon of gas used on the Kenai! Somebody has to pay the US Customs Anchorage agent too bless this gas with his approval. The trucking back and forth only adds a few million ton miles to our already taxed road system. A little wear and tear on the highway can be overlooked for such an important blessing! Those huge loads of doubles running up and back probably have nothing at all to do with the roads going to hell every few years. I don't think there has been an accident in years; at least not involving injury, what's a little diesel spilled along the River in Copper Landing, only a small portion of the 12,000 gallon tanker spilled. It could have been a lot worse. So the next time you see that great big old Double tanker loaded with your gas pull out in front of you you'll know where he's headed! He is giving your next tank of gas a little road trip.
