" Coal at Chuitna, gold at Pebble mine, numerous offshore gas reserves" " Homer Tribune looks at how Cook Inlet has transformed from a humble, twisting waterway to one of the most resource-rich areas in the Nation".
An Alaska State Trooper says "Do you know why you are luckier than lots of other kids your age in this State? Because you- when you're only 12 or 14 or younger-get to drive a Honda when lots of other kids in Alaska can't do that." That is a statement of mean discontent Do you want to be poor, humble and shamed all your life? do you sense that you always have to be the humble one?
"A collection of Bristol Bay Villages pits members joined under the Bristol Bay Native Associations against one another." That is the way to pressure, to deprive you and breakdown your confidence and feel alone, by the anyone.
"Anji Hunter first question" "What does Pebble give you?." yikes! Pebble will give Anji gold, what will Anji give? to live lavishly in silk underwear?
"Henry explained in his own British accent "she is here to understand our involvement in Alaska."
Anji didn't understand gold? that's her profession, mission and profit - Alaska.
"BP, we come to think of 'BP' as meaning beyond petroleum" like, the massive oil spill on the
Nslope? excessive waste, another social/economic impact.
Are you impressed by Sir John Parker? his honey-tongue? flattery? wow! your first helicopter rides, courteous visits? and Anglo was recently cleared of human rights abuse?
"When someone comes to talk to us ( note "to" and not "with") we believe them" some people are so greedy and full of it, you might have to pump gas out of their a--.

Homer's Tribune, Naomi Klouda Aug. 19, 2009

"Henry, inntroducing Hunter to a small luncheon" group, said that it's too early to quiz Hunter about the Pebble mine." huh? have a luncheon with Chief Elia Anelon and only with your tribe, look on the internet concerning Ango, think of and ask questions, practice speaking in front of the tribe, as not to get nervous and write them in your notebook. That way, you don't have to "think" I should have asked and said this, instead of that. "Get to know" all about the Canadian co. and Ango American, and "other people involved in Pebble" I like the word "other". "get to know your mine". "get to know" what Pebble is worth. Sue Anelon (asks) " We don't know if they are going to disregard us." You have every right to know all about your land and gold. Are you being stopped, blocked from Pebble mine? Be involved in Pebble, you have every right to know what is going into and out of Pebble. Did you find out if the natives of Johannesburg, Chile, Peru and South America, benefited by their countries minerals or were shafted? Alaska must be the eighth wonder of the world, and make sure Ango doesn't leave their tailings behind them. Read, Reimers, read.

Court's mine ruling may threaten Iliamna
By: Izetta Chambers

"I was dismayed and frankly, disgusted at the recent Supreme court decision that would allow the Kensington gold mine to dump industrial waste into a freshwater lake."

Homer Tribune By: Naomi Klouda, Aug.19.2009

A lawsuit brought in July by Nunamta Aulukesta- a collection of Bristol Bay Native Association PITS members joined under the Bristol Bay Association against ONE ANOTHER, as either pro-or anti Pebble. An injunction filed in Alaska Supreme courts seeks to stop the Pebble project on claims that state regulators are not adequately protecting the land.
I love the words "other" "another" and "pits"
Alaskan Natives are "one" people.

The Alaskans: the wait and see culture? poverty VS richness in Alaska? Who is handling your budget? is it being squandered? did you estimate the value of your gold, land, water, sea life? who will you be working for? remember, Anglo and Canadian are the fifty-fifty, double-team people, and the Alaskans are the one's "sharing".

The word lord replaced all the words of God.
Lord is a title, like Lord Chancellor. There are lords and there are servants.

After being called primitive, 3rd world: now, that you are able to speak the English language.
On religion: the totem pole- do you worship that hunka, hunka piece of wood? what does it stand for?
Understandable about the eagle, and is there really a tribe in Alaska who can call an eagle and the bird will fly around their camp, or is that just a story or myth?

Selected phases:

European leaders are frustrated about the lack of U.S. action on financial regulation and restricting how bank executes get paid.

Setting aside, the homeless, work and proverty.

"You're hearing very strong concern that the lessons haven't been learned", said Heather Conley, who served in the Bush State Department and now runs the European Program at the CSIS think tank. She said Europeans fear a sense of urgency has been lost, and they are asking, "Americans, what are you doing about it?"

Typical of the foreign aristocrats to hang themselves with their own tongue and expect us to untie it.

Pebble Mine Budget Increased to $70 Milllion

story Updated: sep 23, 2009 at 1:28 PM AKDT

Selected phases:

The Pebble Partnership-a joint venture between mining companies Northern Dynasty and Anglo American-approved the increase, bringing this year's budget to $70 million.

As usual, the inexperienced Pebble is sitting between two stools: Northern Dynasty and Anglo.

Northern Dynasty President and CEO Ron Thiessen says the goal is to develop a plan that state and federal regulators and the "citizens of Alaska" can consider.:- Alaskans are protected by the rights of being a Citizen of Alaska, however the government has the authority to ration oil, food, do you also have steel and rubber?.
Native or "Citizen", means being born in the U.S.,
being a "citizen", does not give you the right to take away life, liberty and property.
Majorites are able to protect their own benefits, minorities are not.

"that state and federal regulators and "the Citizens of Alaska" can consider." - the state, federal and "Citizens of Alaska" protects this equal protection, the state, if involved, depriving your equal rights/treatment is called a state action, you have a right to defend your birth-right and Citizenship.

Selected phase:
Pebble opponents this week released a poll that says Bristol Bay area residents are overwhelmingly against the mine. Pebble is located near some of the world's most productive wild salmon streams.

Opponents? against the sway and control of NDynasty, Pebble Partnership and Anglo? Are the Alaskan Natives still the subjects of England?
Did London do a takeover on Pebble?

"I will certainly admit I have a bias toward competing for contracts, that involve public money, she said "I'm not ashamed to admit that bias. I think it's a healthy bias."

Bias, is another word for bigotry, racist: just another word that is play-out.

Equality, civil rights for all Alaskans, settlement, mine, the hungry and impoverished, and be involved with the life of Alaska.

All this moral talk of racism is a waste of time.

Continuous death of Alaskan homeless people should be in recognition and opposed.

Continuous attack on alaska's poor people should not be ignored.
