Posted on 01/23/12 at 04:31 pm in response to Appeals Court decision on Defense of Marriage Act expected

On the dissolution of property issue, back in 1986 I bought a house with a women I was not married to. I think the term was "joint tenants in common" where, if one died the other got the house.

On the flip side my parents were married more than half a century before my mother had to go into a nursing home for a while. We went over the asset draw down process. Basically, if my mother had been a nursing home long enough to deplete assets (figure cost of at least $5K per month for...

Speaking of pejorative terms like "politically correct, "progressive" "economic (or whatever) justice" and "marriage equality".

Just after high-school there were identical-twin single females on the same floor of my apartment building. They were convinced I couldn't tell them apart. (That was "fun").

I had a car, they didn't. They were Catholic so the three of us went to church together. People at the church said I should get married but I stayed in "kabe" and said I couldn...

Posted on 01/19/12 at 02:23 pm in response to U of M study: Men spend more (and save less) when women are scarce

Men might have a higher degree of economic mobility, going where the jobs are compared to women. This can create a mindset.

It would be interesting to see if these studies are age and demographically bracketed. In an area with a stagnant to declining economy there may be more women due to public assistance. Relatively few single parent household headed by men in these areas.

Interesting details but the civil rights information is selective. Not even the Klu Klux Klan assassinated high public officials but the Symbionese Liberation Army assassinated Marcus Albert Foster, the first black superintendent of major school district.

Posted on 12/29/11 at 07:24 am in response to Poverty workers saw rise in need first

If the demand was expected to go up why import poverty and "social problem form the rest of the USA and the the rest of the world to Minnesota. Perhaps our "poverty industry" thought this would be a way to generate more work in the poverty industry.

Minnesota already has the highest welfare spending as portion of budget of any state according to the Census.

Posted on 12/29/11 at 07:15 am in response to Choice of Senjem moves GOP Senate caucus one step toward middle

Let me explain the process. On one side we have a crony white male mainstream media (think Nick Coleman, Jr.) who want to counter their "white skin guilt' by championing the cause of the impoverished and starving native american members of the Mystik Lake /casino tribes who see seem somehow, despite their minority oppression lavish huge monies to many legislators who are told to oppose the Los Angelese Vikings". Asked about how they can take money from a an impoverished Indianian tribe...

Posted on 12/31/11 at 09:24 am in response to What Minnesota can learn from Vermont's renewable-energy plans

With the caveat that this is benchmark wholesale USA natural gas is is down to $3 per thousand cubic feet/one-million BTU. To compare this to (untaxed) fuel oil/diesel fuel this is under forty cents per gallon btu equivalent for benchmark WHOLESALE natural gas versus (untaxed) heating fuel oil/diesel.

As they say "your mileage may vary" but CNBC lists the wholesale benchmark price of fuel oil as $2.90 per gallon. (hint: again this is wholesale benchmark but fuel oil costs more than...

Wow! What a huge difference in media interest between this and police actions related to then
DEMOCRATIC candidates Keith (X Hakeem) Ellison's discords with his alleged mistress!

Just saying!

Posted on 12/20/11 at 12:04 pm in response to MinnPost reaches 75,000 comments -- a good time to review the rules

I tend to be "conservative" and MinnPost leans towards the left. That said, Minnpost has been very fair when it comes to my postings. I would say under 1% rejected. So few I can't even remember them.

Good job by Minnpost!
