Posted on 11/04/14 at 07:04 am in response to On campaign's final day, GOP hits Dayton on Ebola preparedness

Let him forever ever after now be known as,...

"cheap-shot Johnson,"

because any losing candidate willing to try to throw the public into panic about ebola,...

without a single fact to back up his bogus charges,...

and at a time when Gov. Dayton won't have time to put up a factual, corrective ad,...

can hardly described any other way,...

after proving that he's the kind of competitor who, just before the end of a game where his team is losing,......

"non sequitur"?

Posted on 11/03/14 at 05:03 pm in response to Molitor (finally) will be named Twins manager

to vote tomorrow,...

if you haven't already voted early.

Whatever the future may hold, under the leadership of whomever we elect,...

it would be tragic if that future were based on the votes of only a small portion of the electorate.

Oh, and don't forget,...

if you don't vote, you have no right to complain about the outcome.

Posted on 11/03/14 at 05:16 pm in response to Does the field of social psychology have an anti-conservative bias?

The difference between liberal folk and "conservatives,"

is that when liberals read reputable, peer-reviewed research which disproves one or more of their pet ideas - things they may have believed must certainly be true,...

liberals tend to take that information into account and revise what they consider to be true.

When "conservatives" come across reputable, peer-reviewed research which disproves one or more of their pet ideas - things they believe must certainly be...

They're not a bit reluctant to lie in promotional materials.

They won't be the least bit reluctant to lie about what they intend to do if elected,...

nor lie about whose interests they'll be trying to serve if they gain office.

Suffice to say, they'll be expressing their eternal gratitude to their largest campaign contributors,...

while lying to their "base" about what they're REALLY trying to do.

but I must have missed where Mr. McFadden actually ANSWERED the question regarding how to get the "too much money" out of politics.

But I suppose his position on this issue is every bit as clear as his positions on every other issue are,...

the equivalent of putting voters in the position of trying to find the rural township road where they're supposed to turn in fog so thick that visibility doesn't extend beyond 5 feet.

Posted on 10/30/14 at 01:39 pm in response to What if McFadden wins and Republicans take the Senate?

I'm sure we can expect to see as many bold, new initiatives and legislation passed as we saw when the GOP controlled the Minnesota House and Senate,...

i.d. ZERO, ZIP, NADA.

The GOP has become so addicted to being the party of "no," that they'll never be able to go cold turkey and quit swilling that very seductive brew.

By the operating style they have so assiduously programmed into themselves and their party, doing NOTHING is free,...

doing SOMETHING might...

Fail to realize that what you DO with that inherited wealth makes a massive difference in whether we "liberals" and "progressives" think you're a worthy citizen,...

or a schmuck.

Those who use their inherited wealth to run for office or, through campaign contributions, to influence public policy making in order to grease the skids for themselves and their cronies,...

so that they might pay themselves large amounts of taxpayer money in the form of no-bid contracts or "...

Posted on 10/27/14 at 02:18 pm in response to McFadden rallies friends to complain about Franken ad

"Mike McFadden has never closed a single plant or laid off a single worker."

Is the corporate lie in a nutshell. The company Mike McFadden worked for did these things,...

in pursuit of profit to pad the pockets of the owners and investors of that company,...

but the corporate lie is that NONE of those people,...

not those making the decision close plants and lay off workers,...

nor those carrying out the decision,...

nor those profiting from the...

When the choice is between Enbridge continuing to use a leak-plagued, badly-constructed (considering the leaks it's had since the beginning of its use), 50-year-old pipeline,...

and replacing that pipeline with a new, better-built, presumably, far less-leak-prone pipeline,...

I can't help but think it's a good idea.

Especially if it will help keep oil trains off the local railroad tracks (just a couple of block from my home).

Unlike the Keystone pipeline, which...
