    Your compassion and understanding of the reality of this situation is... well... under whelming.

    These people are in the same population group as all the other extremes that will be, and are, the first to feel the effects of this economic crisis: poor, uneducated, seniors, etc. When their situations start to turn around then we will know this crisis is making the turn towards recovery.

    As much as Palin is an idiot, I can't blame this on her.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    Barack Obama doesn't care about snow people.

    I do accept your admonishment in its entirety. I still feel strongly that money better spent ,than welfare, would be build better schools and require their attendance. I have been equally harsh with the money whores who caused our present demise..., problem there is they can`t be educated ...they have evil greedy hearts, and just don`t care. Thank You sir.

    In rural Alaska villages, families struggle to survive - CNN.com

    In many stores, 2 pounds of cheese costs between $15 and $18, milk costs $10 a gallon, a 5-pound bag of apples costs $15, and a dozen eggs costs $22 -- more than double the price in the area just two years ago.

    Many area residents don't even bother with fruits and vegetables, which can be damaged by freezing on the trip home.

    After shopping, the Stronghearts pack their groceries into boxes, tie them to the snowmobile, and begin the 25-mile trek home, passing moose, rabbit and fox tracks along the way.
    How can this be the 'tip' of the iceberg when it's been going on for over two years? What? A 12 pack of eggs for $11 wasn't expensive enough? This is not even political. It's people complaining about living in the middle of ****ing nowhere and having to pay more for **** that was already expensive and could only get more expensive during economic frailty.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Does anyone think that if all Americans had College Bachelor degrees that all Americans would all have well paying secure jobs?


    Does anyone think that all Americans were born with the same capacity for learning?

    Does anyone think that all Americans were born with the same level of intelligence?

    Step 1: Board up your igloo
    Step 2: Ride your snowmobiles to a large city
    Step 3: Sell your snowmobiles for $10k
    Step 4: Travel to someplace where freezing/starving to death isn't a real possibility
    Step 5: Get a job loading boxes, folding T-shirts, etc.
    Step 6: ???
    Step 7: Profit!

    I'm going to say evolution, not Sarah Palin, is at "fault" here.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    The article says prices doubled in just two years. just means within two years, not more then two years.

    And it is the tip of the iceberg because the problem is going to get worse.
