OK, “Citizens United” Alaska Chapter test question. How many pages of government procurement does it take to buy “Bottled Water”? See, the underground pollution plume from H&H Lane - North Pole's refinery area – it is migrating towards Eielson Air Force Base. What else could be ruining the drinking water for the rodents of Moose Creek? Wait there's more exhaust, as when the North Pole fire station's EPA monitoring site qualifies as the “Official PM2.5” magnet, the Fairbanks “containment area” will pin-point the “MOST Polluted City” in America with respect to air quality, and this water hazard, well it makes “Love Canal” tame in comparison. Honestly, remember the “Eggplant that ate Chicago”, same monster so the military is now forced to provide “bottled water” to 50-households in the Moose Creek area. Which goes to show that the MoanaLisa MurCowpiefly's plan to blame the Air Force is working, which allows the Koch Brothers off the hook. “Thar she blows”, sending all that sulfolane east! Anyway, the G-man has advertised a bid request for “bottled water”, and it takes 40-pages of this and that in efforts to make sure we get “water”? Yes, 40-pages that covers things like project management, work plans, inspections and making sure the water truck drivers are not certified “Sex Offenders” - it's “bottled water” for Pete's sake. Get this, same amount of pages to buy a nuclear warhead! Wasn't there a law passed back many moons ago, called the paperwork reduction act? It's a bottle of water? But here is why even buying bottled water has become so complicated, especially when working with the ARMY Corp of Engineers. When the Bush family decided it wanted to take over the middle east, our troops in boots were scheduled to infiltrate. But before we can engage in a “war” or as some call it just a “conflict”, maybe “miscalculation”, whatever your fancy, we allow our “Corp of Engineers” to assess what defines the battle field and plans are drawn up for the attack. Before such attacks, the brass ask things like are runways needed, as we have the courage to go where no man has gone before and in no time flat we can land a C-150 filled with bottled water, or strippers if Bill Clinton gets involved and a speaking engagement advance is required. See, we have all kinds of equipment designed to assist the troops when in battle, as troops need nourishment and sleeping quarters, so after the runways it means bunk beds and then when a stronghold is established with the chow-hall “Open for Business” the pre-invasion commences and the troops in boots move in. So there comes a whole lot of pre-dawn planning. Now when the “bombs bursting in air” starts wrecking havoc with peace and tranquility where camels once reigned, the local water systems can become, well filled with “crap”. So when we engage in a war on the dessert, we bring water purifying equipment, well drilling stuff, as water is essential element in the theater. Yes, our brave men & women in uniform don't even need bridges – only in Alaska – and can go anywhere on this earth at anytime and be engaged to protect the Bush Dysentery Dynasty. Now when George “Senior Moment having a Movement” Bush gave the go-ahead to protect the “House of Sad, well many insiders realized this was a “golden goose” opportunity coming true, as it wouldn't end with the “Gulf” and this initial ice-breaker would culminate with the fulfillment of a protracted conflict, so designed to be a continuation of rape and pilferage on the U.S. Treasury. Let the Americans pay for it! Sure it was planned for the long-haul, as we are still at it today and once again increasing the troop head count here, there and everywhere – re-order the body bags and of course more “bottled water”! So how to make money is what's behind “Modern Day Warfare” - it has nothing to do with defending as if the brass had it their way, the only thing they would be defending is that military base golf course. Even making a killing with “Bottled Water” is part of someone's “American Greed” dream coming true! Yes indeed, somebody in Congress that was being fed pork pie lies from the lobby decided our troops needed “bottled water” instead of purified water at site and today somebody is getting rich, when we have the technology and the infrastructure to purify “cesspool” water that comes out clean and mean, yet the tab today to ship “bottled water” over to our troops - as it must be an American Product - well outfits like Nestles are making future “filthy rich” trust funds for the board of directors' kids. Yes indeed, more “Mitt Romney” trust-fund babies that will never work a single day a decent salt-of-the-earth job and learn only that “WAR” must be never stopped, else “Mommy, I'm loosing my fortune”. So mom cuts off sex with Dada, and then pin-stripped Dada must find reasons to lobby for more “WAR”, or buddy up with Bill. OK, in a nutshell what 40-pages of “fluff” figures in the cost of a bottle of, well purified “Love Canal” water. When that 40-page document awards some outfit the contract to supply water to the Moose Creek, the trail of tears finds this madness. It costs 0.0044 cents for water. Pushed into a “throw-away” bottle then the price escalates to 0.45-cents, or a 10000-fold increase and you thought “Big Oil” was greedy? Now, when one gets through that 40-page document, well the cost for that same bottle of water, delivered to our troops or Moose Creekers, well it now sits at $1.73, per bottle or hold your gizzard – an increase of 39298 percent! So, for each bottle of water that is sent to a war torn place – including Moose Creek – we the “U.S. Taxpayers” or on the hook, where profits engage maybe 80% of the true costs. For each pallet that is sent to the troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, someone is tax sheltering away an inheritance, at our expense. And each week thousands of pallets are flow aboard transporters. Said again, we have already paid for equipment that would provide at site clean water at a fraction of the cost for what it costs for “Bottled Water”, as one time not too long ago there was no such thing as bottled water! What ever happened to troop canteens? Best guess estimates to date target the “Bottled Water” frenzy at $93-Million in pocket book profits for some “Corporation” who has a name and is a person of “unknown identity”, all for an un-nessessary accomplishment. We don't teach our troops about bottled water. Imagine Rambo with a bottle of water in a flimsy container that “cracks” and gives away one's once stealth position? Said again, “WARFARE” has become a money making frenzy, the reason we have no reason to stop it – as many would then be forced to, well find true employment – including our Congress performing its “sworn duty” and putting a stop to the bleeding away of who we really are as a nation. Happy 4th? Depends how spin the bottle finds you!

Alaska Natives – Under Attack

Wow, so U.S. Senator from Alaska MoanaLisa MurCowpiefly is making herday headway, in recovering the rightful and for so long shamed name of Alaska's “Big Mountain”. One thing well known about the nepotism senator, she knows all about land reclamation, especially when Bob Penny consults her on deals too good to be true. OK, old story, old mess up. See, Alaska as a state gets abused by other states, like maybe because of our destination far and away removed from the others, a convenient target! Good thing we have the “Missie Defense D-Shield System” there in Delta Junction – and under control of the “Religious Right” communes “One God heat sinks...”, the $billion$ dollar blunder that is now getting some Congressional attention focusing on the fact that it has a reliability factor of “negative” 180% due poor craftsmanship – the reason for the “D” stamp of approval signifying “Dysfunctional”. How come our critical military defense infrastructure is either under control of religious freaks or religious zealots? See, the troops are off fighting some SiSi war, in the meantime “civil servants” that “Hate” Uncle Sam are in control of...Yes indeed, there exists “Kill” rockets sitting in silos in “Delta” that, well the internals are rotting away due the fact that the ground water is getting contaminated and leaching crap into the navigational computers. So the answer from the defense contractors responsible for the “mess” – the lobby that controls the purse strings – build new rockets! Don't we ever get a warranty? Anyway, in the bullying of Alaska category, take Ohio for instance, it has been the name-keeper for North America's highest “Porta-Party” through help from Congress...even today as Don Young continues testing Viagra, upon this very issue! Still not finding an erection lasting through the 4-hour debates on “Who” finds ownership to that mountain's namesake, McKinley's state of birth or Alaskan Natives? So the name game has been tested in the House for...well the same amount of time that Don has maintained a circus in D.C., I meant zoo...I mean “Big Tame” museum! Really, Don – due senior moments – maintains the largest office out of any House members, for displaying all his “Big Game” trophies gunned down while gallivanting around the globe with Dennis Hastamasturbate. “Shurley, Shurley bo Burley” the 106th through the 109th Congressional membership must have known Hastert's pedophile connection and as part of their duty, maintained silence. “I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.” Of course this was during the Clinton & Gingrich & Bush & Delay “We are Perverts and Coverts of Office”, so I guess it was to be expected. Sad Sack-of-shit thing, we pay their freedom for criminal activity as the immunity clause written by none other then Nancy Pelosi, well “Freedom at Hast”. Anyway, when the time comes to break the long overdue “Lincoln, Lincoln bo Bincoln Bonana fanna fo Fincoln Fee fy mo Mincoln, Lincoln” and MurCowpiefly's staff breaks wind, I mean breaks out the “Perignon”, time to party into the midnight sunshine! Whey, Bill Allen's a pervert and we know MoanaLisa loves the “Dom” as YouBlowTube captured the festivities down Ketch way when she christened the hull of the M.V. Susitna and it was hit so hard it sunk. So it is great to see that the “Great One” can be re-honored to what was claimed by the Athabaskans some 10,000 years ago, Denali! And while we are at it, may as well rename Alaska for the long haul. So instead of the “Lost Frontier”, how about the “Big TEAT” or the suckling spiglet? No not due the fact the 49er is in bed with the Tea-Party Koch suckers, we still rely on Uncle Sam for “Welfare” even though we have today a reserve much for real all told close to $100-Billion$? So the giveaway continues, look the entire Billy Brown family is guilty of PFD fraud, yet we give away our “freedoms” so they can continue to be free and fascinate the entire Discovery Channel that is discovering that the Dan Quayle IQ of a couch potatoe is, well it appears a “Cold Case”. Aren't you glad that encyclopedias are a thing of the past? Imagine trying to teach your kids about stuff only to page past a mug-shot of Bush/Quayle, Clinton/Gore, Bush/Cheney...Anyway, it may be time to rename this state. See, Gubnor Bill wants to allow Trans-Canada through the banned AGIA theft-athon to get more bang for its buck. Now according to the Mobius Strip theory, more bang for the outsiders means less bang for...the sentiment that one man's trash is another Canadians wealth...Look I am all for stiff control at our border crossings. We should erect massive electrified fences with huge Fender speakers that blasts them unwanted outsiders away with “Deportee” or “Crazy Baldheads” playing in the background. Stay away freeloaders! Now I am not talking a “fence” down south on the Mexican border, as we need a defensive “KEEP OUT” fence on the border between Alaska and Canada. They ain't our friends, and using that notion as a cover up that is stealing away Alaska's eminent domain, in fact swallowing up Uncle Sam's eminence. See, Trans-Canada was invited in to help out with building a natural gas pipeline to the lower-48. This Canadian outfit never before affiliated with Alaska was in it for the piece of pipe that would follow along-side the ALCAN Highway, and really had nothing to do with the pipe in Alaska, so who let the Canadians cross the border? Yes in it for a piece of the pipe, not a piece of the “pie”. Dear Mr. & Mrs. U.S. Taxpayer, test time. “Who pays to maintain the ALCAN highway”? No, the Canadians are not that stupid! We “All Alaskan Dimwits for Don Young” were guaranteed a natural gas pipeline within 5-years of “Oil In”, that was 39-years ago gone bye-bye. Still, a natural gas pipeline “fantasy” is still cheap thrills for Trans-Tyranny-Canada. See, Bill wants to buy something from Queen Tyranny, what it is ain't exactly clear. See, Alaska permits a “Public Domain” Right-of-Way for pipelines, in efforts to keep eminent domain an instrument of “state sovereignty”. So we already have what it takes to demand what we want as a partner in any and all pipelines on the drawing board. Trans-Canada is a fictitious and frivolous entity, it owns no gas and it owns no ROW, so why is Walker contemplating buying “something” from these crooks in the tune of $100-Million, when the state is going broke? No we're NOT, just an April Fool's joke. So when Sarah enacted AGIA, with good intent because at that time Trans-Canada was hanging out on the other side of the border and not really interfering with things, well one night when the border crossing agents were sound asleep the border was infiltrated and the crooks headed right for the piggy bank. See, Alaska has a “Big” bank! So it is “fear” to say that Tyranny will walk away with the entire $500-Million that was earmarked for, well for what is still out with a jury. Another reason we need a border crossing, not for illegal aliens that come north to fish, but to take into consideration those pin-stripped illegal comedian crooks that come here to take advantage of boatloads of loot! When a state has boatloads of loot and the “Sergeant of Arms is blackmailed into leaving his post”, like we find with the U.S. Treasury, attacks are imminent. But there comes more testing issues as to why we have been blinded by the Canadian insurrection against Alaska, and they continue to get away with it. OK, we still pay the entire cost to maintain the Alcan Highway – the answer to that “Citizens United” test question - even the road sections that are in Canada! This state is also bleeding away $millions$ in lost revenue to Canadian banks and Canadian business entities, like through a fictitious Fairbanks/Canadian partner called Inland Pacific Reality. The connection is like this. Back in 2007 Doyon Utilities was awarded a 50-year contract with the Defense Logistics Agency, to maintain the “utility” infrastructure at many of the military bases in Alaska, which meant great paying jobs for the Tea-Party and Religious Right, the factions that “hate” Uncle Sam's helping hand but love that “fat” paycheck. That 50-year contract allowed for a guaranteed revenue stream of a $75-Million annually, with that guaranteed income and based on “utility” fundamentals 101, when the commune workers were paid, well it meant a handsome take-home profit of $25-Million – split between Doyon Limited and the other half handed over to the Canadians. But something went wrong in the “equal” equation and most of the profits for the first few years, yes taken across the border by them “crazy baldhead” pinstriped convicts. But the Canadians are greedy and wanted that lucrative revenue stream to continue on the increase, robbing us blindly, and Doyon was then forced to try to rip off the U.S. Taxpayers. By requesting the Regulatory Commission of Alaska to intervene and allow, well here is what the ARMY lawyers have said: The level of rate increase requested exceeds 50 percent for five of the twelve systems and nearly 100 percent or two . Doyon also requests interim increases for each system that in most cases are more than 50 percent of the total increase, without hearings or examination of its extensive filing. DOD 's current annual payments to Doyon exceed $75,000,000 and would balloon to nearly $100,000,000 annually, if accepted without challenge and examination. DOD generally disputes Doyon's numerous allegations and mischaracterization of its relationship, the status of the facilities, and the payments due. DOD intends to provide testimony and other evidence that will largely rebut Doyon's filing. DOD disputes the justification for, and opposes the implementation of, interim rates and notes, as Doyon concedes, that DOD's payments will be increased in August, 2012, regardless of the proceedings before the RCA. DOD welcomes other intervenors and participants in the proceedings, including RCA Staff and consumer representatives, and believes that their participation will provide a full record for RCA consideration and be in the public interest. Doyon touts itself as a “Public Utility" and therefore should be held to the same level of scrutiny as other public utilities. To facilitate the widest opportunity for participation, DOD requests that all hearings and proceedings be conducted at the RCA offices in Anchorage. In view of the complicated coordination and distances that DOD participants must travel, Anchorage provides a more suitable venue. Over the course of this year, DOD has consistently received misleading information, or no information, about the expected filing date of this huge case. Doyon initially informed DOD that the filing would occur in late June, 2012. Then, it changed to sometime in April , then to sometime in May.” So in a nutshell, the “Net Margin” is pure profit that is being delivered – bags of money – to the Canadians and they want more from where that comes from. But I am glad to see that the ARMY, well don't mess with Uncle Sam. And Doyon is in debt at the tune of $130-million, to Toronto Dominion, and is only paying off the interest, as the entire Doyon connection was designed as a money making scam – for the Canadians. So Doyon's collateral, well it's our military infrastructure at risk? So when Doyon could not make ends meet, it tried to swindle more loot from Uncle Sam, trying to raise the rates it charged for cesspool cleaning through criminal like increases, which would have meant in excess of $25-million collected yearly for the next 50-years had the ARMY brass been unaware of what was about to blast away decency. And this was all directed by the board of directors of Doyon Utilities, which finds some of Canadian “blood” but mostly “White Trash” Fairbanks businessmen that seem not to give a rat's ass about the American Taxpayers! But you don't mess with Uncle Sam's lawyers, and when Doyon tried to stick it to “US”, well so far it has backfired. Yes, this was a class-act theft attempt, and should be rewarded with time behind bars for the crooks. Here is what I don't get. The board that tried to pull a good one on Uncle Sam, tried to sock-it-to the U.S. Taxpayers, they all raise the American flag out front their multi-million dollar homes there in Fairbanks? Yet in reality, thay act only as as a funnel for the Canadians, and in reality don't give a rat's ass about you or I and care only about themselves and always have an excuse with a mile long smile as to why it is OK, they call it “Capitalism”. Know what, their close, but in reality its a “Capital Crime”. So maybe we need some of those military lawyers, to help Alaska and the bleeding away of our sovereignty, as when the hen-house is raided - well it is under attack. So when you here the Homeland Security boss talk about “vigilence” come the 4th, our northern borders are vulnerable, and homegrown thieves are stealing away our dignity and heritage. The entire Doyon fiasco, well it is once again the Native Alaskan “name” that is being used as an element of insurrection, wherein the Fairbanks businessmen making a “killing” on this insurrection are hiding behind that Native Alaskan name, all in efforts to well, target the natives! So the next time you see a Canadian in a pinstrip, ask not what your country can do for them are the “Crazy Baldheads” robbing us blind!

NEWS: Concurring Opinion

So the United States Supreme Court has rendered a decision in the “Same-Sex” marriage case, and here is the “Concurring Opinion” from the bench:

On the corner there's this nice man
His name is Mark, He's always smiling
He's got this mom who comes on Wednesdays
In the evening with soup so steaming
He shares his house with his friend Martin
They're not brothers, they're not cousins
My little girl wonders all about these men
I take hold of her hand, and I begin

Home is where the heart is
No matter how the heart lives
Inside your heart where love is
That's where you've got to make yourself
At home

Across the yard live Deb and Tricia
With their tools and ladders
And their room addition
My kid yells over, "Are ya having a baby?"
They wink and smile, they say, "Someday maybe."
But through their doors go kids and mommies
Funny how you don't see the daddies go in
My little girl wonders
'Bout this house with no men,
I take hold of her hand
And I begin

'Round the corner, here comes Martin
He's alone now, he tries smiling
He roams around his well stocked kitchen
He knows that fate will soon be coming
My little girl wonders where he will live
I take hold of her hand and I begin

Martin sits and waits with his windows open
His house is empty, his heart is broken
We bring him toys and watercolors
He loves to hear my little baby's stories
She's the gift I share
She's his companion
She's the string on the kite
She guides him into the wind
My little girl wonders who will care for him
We take hold of his hand and we begin

Another Guinness Please!

Cheers away! Alaska has become the recipient of another Guinness World Record. Yes indeed, for the “Highest Public Use Outhouse”, located at 14,200-feet on the West Buttress route, in Denali National Park up Mt. McKinley. True, and since this is a “Crapper” made possible by the U.S. Taxpayers' generosity, it's a “Record” all can be proud upon! And remember, shit rolls down hill...

Estimated Cost: $65,000

Big “Alaskan” DUMP

Well it is that time of year again, wherein the mountain climbing artificial ingredient aficionados take a “Big DUMP” and Alaska's once pristine environment gets a makeover. I'm talking about that groupie group of artificial intelligence that believe in the theory their shit don't stink so can commence that yearly ritual of crapping on America. In their wake leaving cesspool central for future generations to contend with! Look, when you have close to a thousand people spending several weeks in close comfort at the U.S. TAXPAYERS' funded “Buttress” base camps up there in close proximity to the McKinley anal hole seepage, hey that's a whole lot of congregational “crap” and that yellow snow, egad what is there of interest spending time in a wilderness latrine? Look, that high up there ain't no workable septic systems, so most of the turds and ass-wipe toilet paper are, well “crevassed” away in bags – but with the poopsayers name, rank and serial number? And with so cold a climate for most of the year, “crap in bags” finds a turnaround half-life cycle of 446-years, twice as long as radio-active Throruim-233. Yes, it's called “environmental littering” and a crime allowed! How come us low life down-to-earth folks must abide by “Carry In Carry Out”? Reminds me of “You can get anything you want at Alice's restaurant...they took twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each one was to be used as evidence against us. Took pictures of the approach, the getaway, the northwest corner the southwest corner and that's not to mention the aerial photography.”, slap the cuffs on those that litter away bags filled with human crap! Imagine, shitting in a bag and stuffing it in a “crevasse”, like is it supposed to act like a time capsule! YUP, assholes were here! OK, so the U.S. Taxpayers are now providing CMCs, “Clean Mountain Cans”, so a climber's crap can keep Iissy's Honey Bucket patrol employed! For real, along with the “cans” provided to climbers on the cheap, there exists today U.S. TAXPAYER toilets that are airlifted to high elevation base camps by the Air National Guard at the rate of $6000 per hour of flying time? Oh, it's categorized as a “Training Mission”, so it comes from the defense budget, not the Trojan turd budget. Here is my take on the crapshoot. Not too long ago, a research team found that “fecal matter” above and beyond the safe limit was everywhere in and around the Mt. McKinley base camps, as so with the “stool samples” taken along the popular climbing routes and with “Global Warming” affecting high elevations also, well that crap was starting to migrate downhill, after years and years of scores and scores of climbers shitting their way to the top of Alaska's highest summit. According to reliable sources, 98% of climbers are affected with gastronomical diarrhea while attempting a climb of the 20000 peak, due unsanitary conditions! Mission Control, we may have another “Love Canal”. OK, enough of the “crap” as a “war” continues on, over the “True” name of the highest mountain in North America. It is about the only thing that I have been in agreement with since Don “Rabid Skunk” Young invaded the “Sense of Congress”, as every time he authors legislation to change the mountain's “official” name back to the original name of “Denali” - to which I favor - he gets heat from cowpie lobbyists from “outside” and McKinley reigns, again and again and again. See, Congressman Young despises “bile paths”, so wants the mountain renamed in honor of the Athabaskan natives that claimed the “Denali” name 10000 years ago. Poops, I meant “bike paths”! See, we could kill two-turds with one stone by allowing the Native Alaskans to regain a claim on the mountain's name. If it were for once officially recognized as “Denali” - the “Great One” - it would then become a sacred peak, off limits to climbers and with that we would get rid of the “crap” and save money wasted away in thin air while ferrying the “crapper” up and down the “Buttress” each season, and not have to payout for those CMCs! Why in hell are the U.S. Taxpayers subsidizing this mountain climbing fantasy? What do we get in return, except crevassed bags of shit. Return on our investment? It stinks! With a name change back to “Denali”, then due the “sacredness” honored by the Athabaskans upon the Mother Earth - hetchetu aloh - and denying permits to piss on the “Great One”, climbing the mountain's famed peak would be banned and why would someone then want to climb to the base camp just to get hit with the Hersey squirts – the enthusiasm would be gone for the “good”! But herein is another reason the name should be respected, given back to the Alaskan natives for safekeeping. From my “accurate” estimates made possible through “Transparency” and “Freedom of Information”, it costs the U.S. TAXPAYERS about $4-Million each season to have “crap police” handing out the CMCs and making sure those that “crevasse” their turds sign on the dotted line. In a nutshell basic, “We the People” are subsidizing for this crap affair on high at approximately $4000 per climber – and many are foreigners! At the same time, the latrines at the low life camps found around Glitter Gulch and over-flowing with tourist turds, well we pick up the tab at $20 bucks per flush! Remember the “Golden Toilet Seat” made famous courtesy of the fleecing of the U.S. Taxpayers, well it appears the “ultimate” in TAXPAYER funded “crap” has found a new cover, as like the turds crevassed away for safekeeping, we continue to get “shat” upon. Then again, maybe if we can't give the natives respect, then maybe those CMCs should have S&H requirements paid for by those wanting the enjoyment of diarrhea on high – shipping and handling “charges” applied, and when a climber is tired of “craping” on Ruth, just send that cesspool-in-a-can to its deserving resting place, the governor's mansion in Ohio. Then maybe after enough crap sent that way, maybe that state will begin to mind its own business and "Notwithstanding any other authority of law, the mountain located 63 degrees 04 minutes 12 seconds north, by 151 degrees 00 minutes 18 seconds west shall continue to be named and referred to for all purposes as Mount McKinley." will be an old thought in the wind, like a long ago fart that no longer takes our breath away!

Human Waste Disposal:
If CMC’s are not available for use , all human waste must be deposited into biodegradable bags (provided by the National Park Service) and disposed of in a deep crevasse away from popular trails. All bags will be marked with the expedition’s name or permit number. In an effort to make sure that the snow is clean for future water supplies, use Clean Mountain Cans (CMC) when available , consolidate pee holes away from camping areas , always use biodegradable bags when you do not have a CMC , dispose of your human waste bag in a deep crevasse , do not leave human waste on the snow . The National Park Service has installed outhouses for public use at Kahiltna Basecamp and 14,200 feet on the West Buttress of Denali . Your cooperation in accepting these responsibilities will contribute significantly to our collective care for this special place, so that all may experience a pristine glacier environment, both now and in the future. The proper disposal of human waste is not only the right thing to do, it is required. Failure to follow these requirements may result in the issuance of a violation notice and other legal action.”
