When my trips to the bar with friends involve enough cocktails to get a DUI, I call a cab. I wish you would do the same.

The sheer amount of dishonesty put forth here by Reichgott Junge is best demonstrated by the fact that even Beth Hawkins felt compelled to insert caveats.

Canada had to kick out entire classes of kids and cherry-pick his students in order to succeed. He is Exhibit A of why charter schools are a joke.

If I were the governor, I would hire this woman and do the extact opposite of everything she says.

Minnesota did not raise the tax rate on small businesses 25 percent. It raised the tax rate on individuals that earned over $150,000 per year and married couples that earned over $250,000 per year. To be affected by the tax increase, your non-incorporated small business would have to earn a profit (not gross revenues, but profit) in excess of $150,000 or $250,000, depending on marital status. Even then, the tax increase only applies to the part of the income that exceeds $150,000/$250,000...

All one needs to do is look at the polling to see just how wrong you are. And the most telling part of the polling is how the support for gay marriage increases the younger someone is.

But their numbers will dwindle and they will be looked upon with the same contempt as the racists are now.

It will be the same as race - the people who voted not to discriminate in the face of electoral peril will be recognized for their courage, while those who supported bigotry will be remembered for their cowardice. The children and grandchildren of gay marriage opponents will someday be ashamed of their relatives if they aren't already.

Also, voting to restrict the rights of a minority group is beyond the scope of representative democracy. That's why courts keep striking the laws...

There will always be a group of small-minded people who can't let go of their bigotry, just like those who never got over the 60's civil rights changes, but there won't be a real debate. Young people don't care, and when they see how little impact gay marriage has on their lives, older people won't either.

You are going to be disappointed.
