Alaskans Refuse Free Heating Oil from Hugo Chavez

I admire and respect the Alaskans for this decision.

Via News Max:
Americans have opened their wallets and come to the aid of Alaskan villagers who spurned an offer of free heating oil from Bush-bashing Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
As NewsMax reported in October, the remote Aleut village of Nelson Lagoon and several other Alaskan communities, where oil costs more than $5 a gallon, had received an offer of free fuel from Citgo, the petroleum company controlled by Chavez’s government.
But the offer came shortly after Chavez called President Bush "the devil” and a "genocidal murderer” in a speech to the United Nations.
In rejecting the offer, Nelson Lagoon tribal council administrator Justine Gunderson said: "As a citizen of this country, you can have your own opinion of our president and our country. But I don’t want a foreigner coming in here and bashing us. Even though we’re in economically dire straits, it was the right choice to make.”[read more]
However, Joe Kennedy and clan doesn't care, they will take it.
