Representative government, and they got it.

So giving aid is treason. Period. And the penalty for treason is......

Ask the families of the two journalists.

Great job for Pres. Kaler's team getting the foundation grant. There is a huge infrastructure in sports and it needs to do well for the U's budget to be healthy. This should help. This training and nutrition teaching facility is right in the U's mission wheelhouse as well as the major industry in Minnesota, food. Irrespective of thoughts about value of sports in academic institution, the facilities are there, let's maximize their economic benefit.

What you mean is he didn't pander to you. You did not nor have not supported himwith your poets, and that trend continues. Compared to a guy like McFadden, (different race but the principle holds) he is open and forthright. Some thing Republicans can't be in general elections because they do not care about poor, minorities and non-Republicans. Republicans do not want to legislate, they want to rule.

Do not remember the Bush "signing statements" nullifying parts of laws. This is a partisan trick dreamed up by talk radio and TV, it is more of the echo chamber rabbit hole that Republicans live in today.

Many of the jobs on the Bakken go to out of state subcontractors. The average nurse in Minot makes 45k compared to 60+k in Minneapolis. Teacher salaries lag far behind also, as do many other community resource type jobs. You want a big buck, physically risky job with no insurance handling toxic chemicals, radon laced mining tailings and rampant crime, it is your place. The locals are not benefitting as much as you think. Many wish it would just go away.

your party Mr. Tester. Actually it is a war on competence because she should have filed this long ago, and it doesn't look good to claim to be the representative of business and not be able to fulfill simple reporting requirements.

Women aren't motivated? Or is it educated? Or is this woman incapable of intelligently understanding her own views? And she is unmotivated also? Thought she was planning to vote? Of course, people who are conservative don't like women, elderly, minorities or educated people to vote. And students definitely don't deserve votes as they are not entrenched and bitter. Much easier when angry white guys make all the rules.
And Franken is reaching out to the other 70% of the electorate...

Loves their state sponsored handouts. Support for this is not as monolithic up there as represented by their legislators either. Since the problems are likely to be shared statewide economically, I wonder what the rush is here? Why NOT judiciously look at the risks?
