Posted on 06/05/12 at 11:01 am in response to Thought-provoking study of 'values' differences across party lines

Google conspiracy theories and you'll find thousands of sites that agree with you. Google "Perverts" and you'll find ten thousand perverts to talk to. We unfriend people who disagree with our views. We frequent web sites that agree with our views. In 1987, if you were a child molester, you were a monster. In 2012, you can find a web site that supports and even encourages you.

The internet splinters our social fabric into individual threads not a common blanket. Two people living side...

Reagan bought out the Savings and Loan Industry and Bush bought up the banking industry, the insurance industry and Freddie and Fannie Mae.

Those actions make Obama look like Herbert Hoover. Yet which party are they calling Socialist?

Shut down the capital before you do any further damage.

Posted on 05/02/12 at 12:14 pm in response to From Tonka trucks to pacemakers: Free trade isn't free

The private sector passes the human costs of free trade to the public sector while the private sector reaps the monetary benefits.

The problem in today's political environment is that when the Government tries to recover the costs, the private sector screams "Government Intrusion" and "No More Taxes" and the private sector walks away laughing all the way to the Wall Street Bank.

Strib has a vested interest in keeping the Vikes around. Their pay wall revenue comes from sports fans. The largest amount of words printed in last Sunday's newspaper was discussion about the NFL draft.

No NFL, No Sid. Could we really live with ourselves if that were to happen?

Posted on 04/26/12 at 01:44 pm in response to Dayton says he won't negotiate on LIFO

If the teachers aren't doing their jobs look at the Principals. If the Principals aren't doing their jobs, look at the School Administrators. The people supervising the School Administrators are Legislators who keep cutting budgets and dictating how to teach.

You can't blame a teacher when the school district cuts their support staff and training after the legislature cuts their budget. Its like Republican's blaming the SEC for not doing its job during the bank meltdown after they...

Posted on 04/24/12 at 09:02 am in response to Target should acquire Best Buy

They built their back-end computer systems based on moving semi-trucks to stores, not one product to one customer. You can't go look in their vast warehouses for a single product. You have to ask the robot to bring you a pallet.

Pay me a dollar and pick a number between 1 and 145,000,000....

Since it is a tax on people who are bad at math, they may want to consider a constitutional amendment to ban math instruction in schools.

Posted on 04/05/12 at 09:03 am in response to Best Buy’s travails part of the evolution of mass retailing

These big box retailers discounted technology as an expense after the Y2K bust and spent big money on marketing to bring customers to their brick and mortar.

Amazon bet on technology as a competitive advantage and the results are clear. When Best Buy was outsourcing its IT department to off-shore suppliers to save money, Amazon was building the biggest ecommerce platform the world will ever know. Target and Walmart spent its IT money in the 90's upgrading its supply system to move...

They tell you what to think.
