Come on Alaska, get a backbone. Once again the elected officials from the State of Washington are meddling in our affairs. Now the mayor of Seattle refuses to allow drill rigs to moor in their harbors. He says it is because drilling contributes to global warming. He doesn’t seem to mind that our oil is refined in his state, and that contributes to global warming.
Our Governor, and state legislators, need to tell Washington State in no uncertain terms that we have had enough of their meddling. First of all, we should remove all state funding from any activity or industry in Washington. Then we should start the process of moving our ferry service, container shipping services, and oil shipments from any Washington port. Money talks, so we need to financially make a statement that we will no longer put up with their interference in the State of Alaska’s business affairs.
