Increasing wages? Insuring a comfortable retirement? Requiring more of our wealthy betters? You sir will burn in hell for speaking this blasphemy!

Seriously I would only quibble with one small thing, I don't think its the top 10% anymore. I think the flow to the top has gotten so extreme that some of them are falling back as well. That majority of the wealth is now flowing to the top 1%.

Really really good comment though.

‘environmentally sensitive’ Kenilworth corridor..."

I suspect that all the chemicals these folks dump on their well manicured lawns, has a much greater impact on the environment in Kenilworth than anything light rail will bring. Certainly light rail is far cleaner than the freight trains running there now.

handed power to Mark Dayton. At the least we all owe Tom Horner and big thank you. With luck he'll do it again.

...better to be thought a fool than open one's mouth and remove all doubt.

...wishful thinking, Minnesota GOP strategy.

You've just retyped the same tired old Radical Right Wing Republican position that we hear EVERYTIME this subject comes up. You all need to simplify. Maybe get a numbering system down: Number your argument for Minimum wage, Health Insurance (Obamacare), Bengahzi, etc..that way you save yourself a lot of typing.

The minimum wage is not meant to be an "entry level" wage as you and yours claim. It was meant to provide a minimum income at which a person could provide for themselves. Pull...

As a Minneapolis resident my money goes to the various stadiums, millionaire players and billionaire owners, at least this time paying more for my bagel and coffee in the morning will actually go to someone who needs it.

Increased over 1000% in those 30 years, but Monsanto tells me there is no connection to the obesity so its all good.
