We--Alaska--don't tell you, Wal*Mart and all other retailers requiring the sissy label, how to run your businesses, so how 'bout you just sell the best damned salmon to be found anywhere on the planet and let us manage our resources.

You're an idiot who doesn't know sh!t from shinola about Alaska or its environment. You'd piss your pants like a scared schoolgirl at the first negative 60 degree cold snap. It takes a lot more intestinal fortitude than you could ever muster to live here, particularly in the interior and northern regions, so don't venture in to preaching to me about the Alaska environment.

Not tough talk--truth talk. You won't find another state in the union with tougher fish and game laws than in this state, nor probably any tougher environmental regulations. Hell, we can get penalized for heating our homes and idling cars at 60 degrees below zero if it affects air quality.
