Jo June 13, 2019 at 7:56 am Don’t you guys have like 20hrs of sunshine now? Loading... tara caribou June 13, 2019 at 8:00 am The sun rose at 4:45am and set a mere 30 mins ago at 11:30pm where I live. I think I get about an hour and a half of darkness right now. Or should I say, “darkness”. Loading... Jo June 13, 2019 at 8:02 am I find that so interesting. So different. Also is it true the Alaskan government gives you like $1500 a month for free? Loading... tara caribou June 13, 2019 at 8:09 am HAHAHAHAHA!!!! No. But the short version is: in the early 80s the Alaska government (and the people of Alaska) began to invest the revenues made from the oil industry in stocks. Qualified residents receive a portion of the DIVIDEND earned by those profits. It is a small portion. Once a year, those qualified residents receive a check for a varying amount, depending on the profits from the past three years. In the beginning I want to say it was like $400. This year it is estimated to be around $3,600 I believe. However, the governor the last three years made an executive order that basically stole (he used the polite term “capped”) part of it and we the people have received around $1,000. Once a year. Not month. If you’d like to do more research, it’s called the Alaska State Permanent Fund Dividend. As a minimalist, this is the lion’s share of the money I get each year and what I live off of.

Jo June 13, 2019 at 9:44 am The way it was presented to me was as a defense of Universal Basic Income… and look at Alaska (ie a RED state) and they give their people like $1500 to buy groceries and medicine and stuff. I must be honest, the way they sold it to me I was super impressed. But now I’m totally less impressed. And now reading about it… even less, less impressed. Loading... tara caribou June 13, 2019 at 7:18 pm Huh. I’d be interested to know who the “expert” was that shared such misinformation with you. Actually, no, I can’t be bothered with that. LOL I figure if someone doesn’t like it they can either 1) not live here or 2) don’t apply for it if you do. Simple. Loading... Leave a Reply Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
