    Alaskans face starvation -- congrats, Sarah!

    Thousands of people in rural Alaska face freezing or starving to death. Some are surviving on nuts, berrries and squirrels like prehistoric man. Sarah Palin and her government canít even figure out how to declare a state of emergency. Even with all the federal pork and oil subsidies, they will need even more help from the federal government.

    Just think, she wants to be president and bring all this joy to the whole country. Canít wait!

    I don't see how this is Palin's fault. Nobody told them to live in the middle of nowhere Alaska.

    There was an ABC News program on TV Friday nite with Dianne Sawyer which looked at Appalachian poverty which has existed and still exists after Bobby Kennedy visited there in the 1960's.

    This, despite Democratic and Republican administrations.

    Your indictment of Sarah Palin is simplistic and transparently biased.

    every heard of personal responsibility?

    When you live in that sort of climate, it is incredibly negligent to not of stocked up on essential survival supplies for a brutal and long winter.

    Furthermore, the brunt of the story deals with how much more expensive goods have become, which is only the tip of the iceberg with the Obots running things now.

    Ashley Judd stopped them from killing wolves and now there is no elk and moose to hunt so now they're all starving.

    Nice going, Ashley!

    Actually,
    it was my fault. I gave them an ultimatum live in the freezing cold, where nothing dares to grow, and starve.
    OR
    Live in a bountiful land where you cannot make a penny to buy food for your family. And all the farm lands are being more and more consolidated into agri-business, meaning, being self-sufficient and a functional member of a capitalistic society (able to plug money into the money fountain, as capitalism requires a ritualistic approach to the flow over money, where once it stops the system crashes) is not possible

    This is true. One side wants the govt. to be our benefactor, the other side wants corporations to be our benefactor.

    From the interview it appears that the price of goods is directly tied to the harsh circumstances these poor people are now facing.

    I disagree with your statement about negligence. How do you stock up when your transportation is a snowmobile and your funds are low?

    I'm not ready to point my finger at Palin. This is the first I've heard of it. I didn't read in the article or hear in the interview how long Palin has known about this. It sounds like the people in these areas have been suffering for awhile but I didn't see how long ago they approached her with their need. I'll give her a little time to see what she does.

    Prices have been steadily gaining. I don't think we'll see the top of this mountain for awhile. Obama just took office. Blaming him or the Democrats for the rising costs in America is really silly.


    I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.

    $22.00 / dozen eggs...,"Don`t buy the eggs". OH, and stop trying to live generation on generation on the welfare state. Send your children to school and climb up out of the dark ages. Get off the reservation. One prehistoric man in the village said," We don`t have a refrigerator so we have to go to the store 200 miles away every week on the snow mobile the government bought us". This all reeks of LIBERAL WHINE...

    I`ll make a deal with all the liberals in here. Stop trying to blame Sarah Palin for your misserable lives and I won`t climb down your throat when you DON`T blame her anymore.


    Why wait on Palin, it sounds like a job for Barry Obama.... Livin like welfare liberals, generation on end, I wouldn`t be shocked if Barry doesn`t know how it works, and how to fix it up right cozy for these idiots..., or was that Inuets?
