I was amazed when I heard a local news broadcast stating our governor has now threatened to line-item veto local projects on the capital budget if the legislature fails to pass the oil tax break bill.
According to my beliefs, there was only one man in history who was never wrong and he was crucified on the cross by those who feared him. I'm impressed to that we now have another walking on this planet!
In my nearly 25 years serving our country in the military I was taught that leadership by example was the most effective method of instilling enthusiasm in the troops. I look forward to seeing what the new philosophy prevailing from the Alaska executive branch produces. From my perspective it looks like leadership by blackmail.
