A friends son just finished his second tour of duty in Iraq, he is coming here to Alaska for a visit. This fine young man loves to fish, and I planned to take him fishing while he's here. When I checked about license I was told it will cost him $55.00 to fish in Alaska for a week.
I think that's ridiculas, this fine young man is serving this nation in a war zone, and the state of Alaska is gonna charge him to fish??????
Talk about fee grabbing, that's about the about as bad as it get's in my book.
Wheather you agree with the war or not is NOT the question here. It's about doing soemething decent for our war veterans.
This young man has put his life on the line for our nation....he has served two tours in Iraq, and now our state want's to charge him $55.00 frigging dollars to fish while he is here visiting his mother.......that's makes all Alaskans look bad.
We look like a bunch of fee grabbing jerks........come to think of it that's what the people making the rules in Alaska are.....a bunch of fee grabbing jerks.
I'll pay the $55.00 out of my own pocket, and I hope those jerks down at the state finacial office choke on it. I'm a veteran, and I remember what it was like coming home from a war zone; I want this young mans visit to Alaska to be a pleasent experence......he has served this nation with honor, and courage, he deserves no less than to be treated with respect.
