I know Sarah that up in the "great state of Alaska" you don't have many options and industry. But is the wholesale slaughter of wildlife really all you can muster to prop up your economy? Can't you improve education and draw tech companies up to or help get citizens out of Alaska? You would think that such a beautiful state would be on the cutting edge of green technology, sustainability and promoting eco-tourisim. No such luck all Sarah has been able to come up with to generate income is slaughter animals in the name of money.
Take a look at what she has done...
Expanded Alaska's aerial hunting program, whereby wolves are shot from the air or chased to exhaustion by airplanes before the pilot lands the plane and the gunner shoots the animals point-blank.
Tried to offer a $150.00 bounty to hunters that could present the chopped off left foreleg of a wolf and introduced legislation to make it easier to kill wolves.
Opposed the listing of both Polar Bears and Cook Inlet Beluga Whales as threatened.
Appointed an anti-wolf Board of Game, filled with old friends and like minded trophy hunters, who authorized state officials to kill wolf pups in their dens.
Encouraged drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and a destructive mining operation in beautiful Bristol Bay.
Questioned whether man-made fossil fuel emissions are responsible for global warming, defying worldwide scientific consensus.
Sarah, Sarah, Sarah - they might look like the winning team but having a lot of money doesn't make them moral or right - how disappointing another sell out.
