Nikiski resident Ray Southwell, an opponent of the ballot measure to create a Law Enforcement Service Area (LESA) in Nikiski, presented his argument against...
...market. Until Alaskans take control of our untouched resource called money we will always have crony capitalism. As a conservative, I believe as Milton Friedman did. With competitive capitalism freedom will abound. Ray Southwell Nikiski
China leads the world in support of the US dollar. As of June this year China has $3,771,347,000,000 dollars. That's right, more than 3.77 trillion dollars. That is the amount they have in their foreign reserves.
Today I received a letter from Representative Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins. He expressed his apology for the dysfunction of our Sate Legislature in regards to a budget.
Rumor has it, the voters in Nikiski will be voting for establishment of our own local police department. It is believed, the development of the new LNG plant will bring (eventually) an expansion of tax revenue from big oil corporations. In the meantime, the burden will be placed on working folks who pay and pay and pay again for government agencies.
I support the people's right to vote on whether to establish a Law Enforcement Service Area (LESA) for Nikiski. I will be voting no on this proposed ballot measure. It will do little to deter Nikiski's drug problem that fuels a property crime problem. Until the people stop the economic success of drug dealers the problem will continue. On May 24th I announced (through a published letter in the Clarion) the establishment of the Deacons for Defense. Calling on local militia members in Nikiski to join in my efforts to disrupt the economic success of Nikiski's drug dealers.
More foolish talk due to ignorance. Agriculture division is one of the "least important" state services according to an article in the Clarion (State Services Ranked, June 8). And no talk about a public bank. Why should we care about agriculture when we have oil and gas to fill our bellies. And native populations lived on salmon for centuries. Who needs agriculture? As long as the big oil corporations access our natural resources all will be good.
...children and grandchildren. We have lost the understanding of freedom and liberty in Alaska and throughout our nation.Ray Southwell Nikiski I would like to say thank you to those young people at the light by Safeway and McDonald's in Soldotna with...
Another honest question.
Regarding the story "High tunnels here to stay" (Peninsula Clarion, Oct. 28): Sure they are. Everybody can get some free federal government money to build them and get paid, by the feds, for growing food each year. Subtract free money out of the equation and measure the success of the high tunnel program. And all those government paid employees justify their jobs by expressing great success of the free money program, they manage. I wonder what that costs?
