Why didn't *I* think of that???

I don't know why this didn't cross my mind earlier. What do Alaska and Iraq have in common??


What does Alaska have that Iraq currently does not?

A permanent fund dividend.

What better way to encourage Iraqi citizens to take ownership of their own country?? What better way to stimulate a free-market economy? What better way to begin to stamp out the poverty and hopelessness that breeds extremism? Not that money is the ONLY cure for what ails that part of the world but boy, it sure is a step in the right direction. USA Today storyHERE.

Now for my next thought...can we PLEASE send Alaska Congressman Don Young over there to administer the new Iraqi Permanent Fund Dividend?
