    You durned Alaskans have gone and done it now. You got Fake Noise all riled up and on your case because Alaskans wouldn’t sit down and shut up about poor widdle Pebble Mine and their desire to rape the shit out of you!

    Darrell (my brother did it) Issa is on your case but one witness and 2 years worth of emails have disappeared and it is un’murrican to have a fed agency-EPA- work hand in glove with citizens to thwart korporate profits at the expense of YOUR environment and food supply and Native cultures. What was you thinking? Didn’t dumbass dubya’s korporate controlled EPA show you how to turn everything over to industry flunkies and just party ,take drugs and have sex with them to collect your paycheck? Didda ya na learn nothing,Laddybuck?

    I may be rolling on the floor laughin’ my ass off,but deep down inside I is appalled at your mavericky behavior. Wingnuts apparently haven’t convinced you to lay back and enjoy it if it is inevitable and it will be if you don’t do something!!! Keep up the good work and don’t make me come up there and chastise you in person.

    How did the debate on oil tax go? Anybody go there?

  4. tallimat says:

    The theater only holds about 250 to 275 people. Probably should get there early if you want to hear.

  5. DaveO says:

    One would hope that APRN would be doing at least a recording of this for distribution…….

  6. mike from iowa says:
