Posted on 06/30/14 at 09:05 pm in response to Day-care union takes a hit with Supreme Court ruling

...the Union is still required to represent these individuals. They represent them in grievances and in contract negotiations. If they were willing to negotiate the own contracts and represent themselves in grievances I wouldn't have a problem, but no, they accept the higher pay the Union brings them, they want the benefits of the Unions but don't want to pay the costs, you may call the freedom of association I call that freeloading.

...until they're not. The Gun Manufacturers Lobbying Wing (NRA) will stand behind these folks 100%, until the very second that gun discharges and that child's tiny head explodes, then, that second, that person became an irresponsible gun owner.

Posted on 06/24/14 at 09:17 pm in response to Minnesota's state of emergency extended for 30 days

...its like everything that Republicans have been telling us has been wrong. Wrong since the time of Reagan. The tax thing alone: Give the Wealthy tax breaks and it'll all trickle down, they are job creators. Obviously nothing has trickled down, nothing spendable anyway, and the jobs that are out there aren't all that great. Proven wrong time and time again, yet they never admit it and no one ever holds the accountable. Maybe strange isn't the word.

He asked this question of his church when he saw death looming: “If my rifle took lives, does it mean that I, Mikhail Kalashnikov, aged 93, a peasant woman’s son, an Orthodox Christian in faith, is guilty of those people’s deaths, even if they were enemies?”

Little did he know that his invention would be use to threaten B students as well. (I wonder what kind of threat it would have taken to improve the grades of our most famous C student?)

That Conservatives only get compassion when their lives are directly impacted by something? Time and time again we see it. Count me impressed when his focus moves passed this very narrow issue and moves on to things not directly related. Maybe he can work on the issues like poverty and alcoholism? Maybe he can work to have his pals in government to fund treatment for minor drug offenders rather than sending them to prison? I won't hold my breath, but hey, stranger things have happened.

...price. Also too, foul weather, lets do that race in a snow storm....

....its about choice, we should be able to choose our transit options. (This is America, what are we if we don't have the freedom to choose?) Its about convenience, yes Dennis convenience. Trains are easy, you get on, your ride and you get off. No worries about getting on the wrong bus or not making a connection, trains run a fixed route and so are very easy to figure out. Environmentally its a great choice and on a snow day they will not doubt be the fastest option. Let's have the Strib do...

"He listed examples of guns existing not to kill: Those carried by police officers, those used for sport, those used for hunting and those used for self-defense."

You have got to be kidding me. This guy is their intellectual power house? This is friggin hilarious and typical of these gun freaks who never used a gun as god intended: to hunt. Those of us who grew up using them as a "tool" (They use the term all the time and have no clue what it means) learned they they were not to be...

...keep a close eye on the McDonald case. I have a feeling you'll be seeing a template for beating a Drunk Driving rap.

What we know so far: Delay taking the test, put it off, ask to speak to an attorney, don't outright refuse but don't consent either. Just don't take the test, but be careful not to make it seem as though you're refusing. Afterward get your own test done. We don't know how long she put off getting that done, but sometime the next day. Remember the body metabolizes an...

...I don' think any of the last 3 presidents were currently imbibing or violating the law. This woman may very well have been. But really your comparison is nonsense.
