    They're all different versions of the elementary school class weirdo grown up. Noah's "inventions" and "experiments" particularly kill me.

    I forgot what the acronym stood for but it was hysterical. The best part was his 30+ year old brother reacting like he discovered cold fusion. I also really enjoyed the suspense they created by being very concerned about whether or not a big ass boat could pull a tree. I'm a sissified city boy but I was 100% sure it could while they seemed to believe it was a 50/50 proposition

    They all have something going on.

    Bear - has a mentality of a 3rd grader with ADHD and turns everything in to a jungle gym
    Matt - If you told me what an uneducated 30 year old looked like that has never been away from his parents more than a couple weeks, It would look like him
    Noah - Vampire
    Bam - has a stick up his ass and is wound super tight. If he lived in civilization, he'd probably be school shooter
    Gabe - he's actually seems pretty normal, all things considered.
    Birdie- seems pretty normal too, except her accent is by far the worst.
    Rain - also seems normal, but probably because she's too young to fully go all out Brown. Also she's probably just not on screen enough to let it show

    I like Gabe and agree he's the most normal.

    I think my biggest problem with Bird besides her accent is her completely sideways front tooth. What the fuck is up with that?

    The Banks , break this down for us. I thought all you need is to be an Alaskan resident for the previous year to get this. Right?

    Yeah Alaska resident, and must not be physically out of the stats for more than 180 days. There are a few allowable exceptions

    Allowable Absences
    Permanent Fund Dividend laws allow persons to be absent from Alaska for more than 180 days total in a qualifying year if they are absent for one or more of the following reasons. Additional rules may apply to each type of absence. For additional information refer to PFD Statutes and Regulations (PDF).

    1. receiving secondary or post-secondary education on a full-time basis;
    2. receiving vocational, professional, or other specific education on a full-time basis for which, as determined by the Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education, a comparable program is not reasonably available in the state;
    3. serving on active duty as a member of the armed forces of the United States or accompanying, as that individual's spouse, minor dependent, or disabled dependent, an individual who is
      1. serving on active duty as a member of the armed forces of the United States; and
      2. eligible for a current year dividend.
    4. serving under foreign or coastal articles of employment aboard an oceangoing vessel of the U.S. merchant marine;
    5. receiving continuous medical treatment recommended by a licensed physician or convalescing as recommended by the physician who treated the illness if the treatment or convalescence is not based on a need for climatic change;
    6. providing care for your parent, spouse, sibling, child, or stepchild with a critical life-threatening illness whose treatment plan as recommended by the attending physician, requires travel outside the state for treatment at a medical specialty complex;
    7. providing care for your terminally ill family member;
    8. settling the estate of your deceased parent, spouse, sibling, child or stepchild provided the absence does not exceed 220 cumulative days;
    9. serving as a member of the United States Congress;
    10. serving on the staff of a member from this state of the United States Congress;
    11. serving as an employee of the state in a field office or other location;
    12. accompanying a minor who is absent under reason (5) above;
    13. accompanying another eligible resident who is absent for reasons (1), (2), (5)-(12) as the spouse, minor dependent, or disabled dependent of the eligible resident;
    14. serving as a volunteer in the federal peace corps program;
    15. training or competing as a member of the United States Olympic Team;
    16. participating for educational purposes in a student fellowship sponsored by the United States Department of Education or by the United States Department of State.

    Huh. I doubt they are out of the state for half the year, unless there's a whole part of their lives they dont show on TV.

    Is it because they probably dont have a fucking address/ pay taxes, or not enough to qualify?

    Physical presence in Alaska is not, by itself, sufficient to establish residency. Before January 1 of the qualifying year, an individual must have taken at least one step beyond physical presence in Alaska to establish residency.

    Proof of establishing residency and the intent to remain indefinitely in Alaska may include the following:

    • a contract to move household goods to Alaska dated prior to the qualifying year (Employer paid moving contracts are not an acceptable tie)
    • proof of home ownership, a home purchase contract, rent receipts, or other proof that the individual maintains a principal home in Alaska. (Employer paid housing is not an acceptable tie)
    • employment records
    • school records
    • voter registration and voting records
    • motor vehicle registration records
    In evaluating whether an individual claiming Alaska residency has demonstrated intent to remain indefinitely in Alaska, the department will consider whether or not an individual has:

    1. taken steps to establish Alaska residency and sever residency in a previous state or country;
    2. ties to another state or country that indicate continued residency in the other state or country; and
    3. taken other action during the qualifying year, through the date of application, that is inconsistent with an intent to remain in Alaska indefinitely.

    'Alaskan Bush People' father and son get 30 days in jail for lying about residency
    Tegan Hanlon
    January 11, 2016
    [​IMG]Discovery Channel
    The patriarch of the Brown family and one of his sons, who star in the wildly popular reality TV show “Alaskan Bush People,” were each sentenced Monday to 30 days in jail for lying on Permanent Fund dividend applications.

    Billy Brown, the 63-year-old father, and his 31-year-old son, Joshua “Bam Bam” Brown, each pleaded guilty Monday to one misdemeanor count of second-degree unsworn falsification as part of a plea deal in a criminal case that has called into question just how long the cast of Discovery Channel’s “Alaskan Bush People” really lived in Alaska.

    In return for their guilty pleas, Billy Brown must return $7,956 in improperly obtained dividends and pay a $10,000 fine. Joshua Brown must pay back $1,174 in dividends and pay a $2,000 fine. They both must complete 40 hours of community service. They can never apply for the dividend again, and by April 15, they must report to jail, said Juneau Superior Court Judge Philip Pallenberg.

    However, Pallenberg mentioned alternatives to jail like halfway houses or electronic monitoring. Officials with the state’s Department of Corrections will have to decide how to best carry out the Browns’ sentences, Pallenberg said.

    The two guilty pleas from the Browns also meant the state would drop all charges against the other family members involved in the case. Originally, state prosecutors had charged Billy Brown, his wife Amora “Ami” Brown and four of their seven children with a total of 60 counts of first-degree unsworn falsification and first- and second-degree theft linked to dividend applications submitted from 2010 to 2013.

    While attorneys never explicitly said where the family lived during that time, court documents filed in the case established a spotty timeline that put the Browns on a ferry leaving Alaska in October 2009. They lived in Texas for several months in 2011. In July 2012, Billy Brown and three of his sons flew from Denver to Anchorage, and returned to Denver less than two weeks later.

    Billy Brown’s attorney, James McGowan, has said the family left Alaska to sell a book Brown had written about his childhood and later surviving the Alaska wilderness.

    According to a court order, an investigator testified that most of the Browns’ 2011 dividend applications were filed electronically from an Internet address in Texas, except for Matthew Brown’s application, which came from California. The next year, the applications were filed from an Internet address in Arkansas. The 2013 applications came from an Internet address in Wasilla.

    On Monday, Billy Brown said he was calling into the court hearing from San Juan Capistrano, California. He said he couldn’t attend the hearing in person because of health problems. The other five members of the family did not say where they were calling from.

    McGowan argued against jail time in the case, highlighting Billy Brown’s complicated health problems with his heart and liver. He said Brown had a seizure three or four years ago that put him in a coma. Now he has about three seizures a week.

    “They’ve actually changed what the show is all about because he can’t stay in the Bush anymore because he needs to be near medical attention,” McGowan said. “So the Brown adventure is moving to an urban setting because he needs to be around doctors. So it’s the real deal, judge.”

    A video posted this month on Discovery Channel’s website shows the family leaving Alaska for Seattle so Billy Brown could see a health specialist. On the show, the Brown family reportedly lived in the woods outside Hoonah, in Southeast Alaska.

    Discovery Channel did not respond to request for comment on Monday’s hearing.

    Kirsten Swanson, an attorney for the four Brown sons, said Joshua Brown felt “tremendous guilt” about the crimes and was very concerned for his father’s health. She said he offered to do the jail time for Billy Brown.

    “And I explained to him that’s not the offer we worked out,” she said.

    Assistant Attorney General Lisa Kelley of the state’s Office of Special Prosecutions and Appeals said that the plea agreement made the Permanent Fund dividend whole again. Even though their cases will be dismissed, Ami Brown, 52; Solomon Brown, 28; Gabriel Brown, 26; and Noah Brown, 23, had to pay back their dividends, too.

    Still, Pallenberg said that deterring other people from committing similar crimes required imposing jail time. He had rejected an earlier plea deal for the Brown family that had all jail time suspended. On Monday, he gave Billy and Joshua Brown 180 days in jail, with 150 days suspended.

    “This is a theft from every Alaskan,” Pallenberg said. “It harms everybody in the state.”

    Billy and Joshua Brown both offered brief statements to the judge Monday. Joshua Brown said he had learned a lot and regretted the circumstances. Billy Brown apologized “for all of this.”

    “I can assure you that you will never see me in any judicial system whatsoever as long as I live,” he said.

    Im glad it's Bam that's going. He's teh only one that will hate it. The others would find some way to make it fun for themselves.

    However, he will never let them forget he did time for the rest of them. I doubt they'll address it on the show, but hope they do.
