Alaska needs strong university
Alaska could use a lottery
Alaska does not need a state income tax, nor a statewide sales tax, nor a school tax! But it could use a “volunteer tax,” otherwise known as a lottery. The state of New Jersey is doing wonders with its lottery.
So, why not Alaska?
With the Russian-Trump investigation of the 2016 election, why not an investigation into the payment of $35,000,000 by the Russians to the Clinton Foundation?

The U.S. military is the largest consumer of fuel on the planet. When the Navy steams up to play, its four ships (two destroyers, two replenishment ships) will burn more fossil fuel in the three weeks of war games than Seattle City Light burns in half a year. Seattle City Light provides electricity to houses, offices and stores for 800,000 customers. This comparison doesn’t include the Air Force, Army or Coast Guard.
Where does this carbon footprint lead? Military intelligence is wading in to rising sea temperatures, dead fish, deaf sea mammals and birds.
