Are the Tea Party types going to feel safe? I mean that's the dreaded "Inner City" !

Posted on 08/07/13 at 11:11 am in response to The Minneapolis skyline: Which freeway approach gives the best view?

My favorite is from Northbound 35W and about Highway 13, you hit the top of the hill and there is the Metro Area spread out below, you're almost home!

If you want to know if something in a rail-car (or truck) is hazardous all you need to do is find the UN number, It will be on a large colored placard on the side of the car near the end. Rather have it on the rail then on the road.

Greg Kapphahn:
Meanwhile, I just can't wait until we have the first wreck of an oil tanker in Lake Superior. I'm sure crude oil will mix right into Superior's notoriously frigid waters without leaving even the slightest trace, right?

I hate to tell you, but there are already Oil Tankers on the Great Lakes. Have been since the beginning. Also Cement carriers, Iron Ore Carriers, Limestone Carriers, Corn Carriers, Wheat Carriers.

They are all just a bunch of Fiddle Players, but those who actually play their fiddles may spend 6 figures on them.

Posted on 01/16/13 at 07:27 pm in response to Pitches to extend sales tax to online purchases and clothing aired

My problem is what determines what tax rate to charge.

Last I checked there were 30,000 +/- sales taxes in the USA.

We waste way too much time just keeping track and calculating the dozen or so different Minnesota Sales taxes.

For a Washington County mail order, we have to get out a map and plot the address to determine the sales tax.

Until there is a national interstate sales tax rate or a usable, affordable rate calculator, its a big problem for the Ma and Pa...

There have been several versions of "Gateway Park" and for various reason they all have been failures. And that includes removing the last one for "Urban Renewal".

Posted on 11/15/12 at 04:07 pm in response to Minnesota retailers: All they want for Christmas is tax fairness

According to the Minnesota Department of Revenue, the tax due is determined by the location that purchaser takes possession of the item.

If you are in St. Cloud and you order from Minneapolis, the St. Cloud tax rate applies. If you buy in person in Minneapolis, you pay Minneapolis tax rate.

Minnesota simplified their tax rates?? You should try figuring out whether to charge someone in Washington County the Transit Tax or not.

Last time I checked there were 30,000 +/-...
