Why does the city -- oops, the Municipality -- or, "The Muni"  -- of Anchorage, Alaska, use  MUNI.ORG for its domain name?

We're not stupid. "Munis" are municipal bonds. "MUNI.ORG" sounds like a non-profit bond rating organization.

Anchorage does borrow money and issue bonds:

Aa2 rating from Moody's and all that. Anchorage is not that large a city, but it is issuing bonds as if it were Chicago, Illinois. We're still not stupid. Anchorage City Hall is flaunting its ability to borrow and spend money on the credit of its citizens. General obligation, water, electric, blah, blah, blah, all these departments issue their own debt? It just makes me want to vomit.

Alaska is not that populous a state, and not even its largest city is all that large. But we definitely have a Chicago-sized city hall problem.

"If all the general purpose bonds on the 2017 city ballot are approved, ..."

There was no election. The bonds were pre-approved and railroaded through on a sham ballot with a foreign sex initiative.

Now the Municipality of Anchorage is doing a financial audit, and we the people are finding that Germany owes war reparations for the use of foreign government accounting software and default on the bonds issued pursuant to fraudulent election proceedings. The Germans are borrowing money through city hall with their funky foreign accounting software and fake voting -- "But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, ..." -- so these debts are actually "... illegal and void," and it is unconstitutional and treasonous to pay them off, the Municipality or Borough of Anchorage being a legal or political subdivision of the State of Alaska, otherwise under obligation to assume and pay such debts in case of default on municipal bonds by the municipality of issue, political subdivision of the State being insufficient cause to escape the abolition of debts clause of Section 4 of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

And now Mayor Berkowitz is proposing to close the budget gap on the money already borrowed and spent before the earthquake with a 5% tax on alcoholic beverages.

The old teetotalers, Alcoholics Anonymous, Jehovah's Witnesses, and Seventh-Day Adventists, and so forth always opposed city alcohol taxes like this because in those days they felt that City Hall should not have any financial interest whatsoever in encouraging the consumption of alcohol, and furthermore, white supremacist Blue Laws are just around the corner from a liquor tax like this.

Some churches opposed mandatory Sunday business closures under the Blue Laws because they felt that inasmuch as the observance of the Sabbath is to be made a law, the true Sabbath is Saturday according to the law of Moses, rather than Sunday as traditionally observed by most Christians.
