Alaska village rejects free Venezuela oil

Can someone explain to me why our country has enough money to build the infamous "bridge to nowhere", and yet can't be bothered helping our fellow Americans?

Especially since these native Alaskans are refusing free oil from Venezuela because of Hugo Chavez's senseless remarks about President Bush.

C'mon, folks. Surely some of you out there can help these brave fellow Americans in their time of need, or have ideas on how to help them. I'm willing to post them here if you've got some good ideas on what we can do.

Let Americans help the Alaskans, instead of Hugo Chavez!

I agree. I saw this article in the paper today and was moved that these people valued their principles over their own necessities. From what I understand these are very poor people that need the heating oil for the cold Alaska winters but can't afford it. To turn down the free oil when they desperately need it because they were insulted over Chavez's remarks out our President speaks volumes about these people.

I will do what I can to help them.
