Posted on 08/18/14 at 12:03 pm in response to Outside money not yet a factor in Franken-McFadden Senate race

I thought DFLers were against both the Keystone pipeline and mining for environmental reasons. Why are they complaining about the materials used in the pipeline when they are against it being built in the first place? No US or Chinese steel will be used if the pipeline is never built.

Posted on 07/31/14 at 04:03 pm in response to Against the über-presidency: Minnesota Republicans vote to sue Obama

The House should cut off the money. King Obama is helpless if he doesn't have the funds to pay his underlings to do his bidding. Those federal employees will not work for free.

The biggest component of the US budget is entitlements, including Social Security, Medicare, food stamps etc.. It's not defense.

I would classify the cost of caring for disabled veterans as an entitlement. The veterans' service entitles them for this care.
Defense might be the biggest discretionary expense, but the author of this post called it a component, not a discretionary expense.

I like Zellers. I want someone like him who can appeal to other generations besides baby boomers and senior citizens. Minnesota needs a fresh approach.

Posted on 06/12/14 at 09:08 pm in response to Tempest over the Bergdahl deal is mostly irrelevant

The Obama administration chose these top five Taliban commanders for the trade with Bergdahl because it was the fastest way to get to a feel-good public relations stunt. The administration wanted something quick to distract the public from the incompetence and deceit shown in the Veterans Administration and other scandals in which Obama is floundering. The administration didn't take the time to check out the accusations of Bergdahl's desertion or even the odd sympathy Bergdahl's dad...

Posted on 05/29/14 at 04:36 pm in response to Franken, Peterson, Walz: Shinseki should resign

The veterans' wait times were altered so the big wheels at the VA could get bonuses for "good management." Funding from Congress had very little to do with this scandal. Shinseki is not the only one who should be fired.

Posted on 05/22/14 at 03:08 pm in response to Walz: Minnesota VA not caught up in growing wait-time controversy

It sounds as if Walz questioned the people at the hospitals and clinics, and the veterans currently being served at those hospitals and clinics. A better way of getting information would be to question the people at home who are on the wait-list and ask how long have they been waiting for service. It is possible the waiting times will not be the same as what the hospitals and clinics are claiming.
I worked at a business once that when it got behind in its service, destroyed all the...

Posted on 05/22/14 at 04:23 pm in response to Interpreting the hidden messages in Franken’s new TV ad

Sen. Franken stayed quiet for two years about the fraudulent claims President Obama made publicly at least 30 times that people could keep the health insurance policies they liked. We probably aren't going to be able to keep our doctors either. Franken's credibility about health care is shot. The "Holly" ad isn't going to overcome Franken's Obamacare liability.

Posted on 05/21/14 at 03:16 pm in response to Pro-stadium politicians bask in Minnesota's Super Bowl win

This is by rich people for rich people. My husband and I won't be able to afford going to any of the games at the new stadium, much less go to the Super Bowl. I'll be glad when this story gets off the front pages.
