Posted on 11/21/14 at 05:53 pm in response to Obama’s immigration maneuver: This isn’t how it’s supposed to work

Don't you ever get tired of manufactured outrage? The legitimate news media have already picked up that FIVE of the last REPUBLICAN presidents also acted unilaterally, without congressional action, on immigration. Yes, all the way back to Richard Nixon. Or is it somehow worse because this time it's President Obama? Yup, that must be it. IARIYAR.

Goodness, all those people at football games, wearing giant foam Gang Signs on their hands! Shocking, fall of civilization, conspiracy, o the horror, rant rant rant. There. Now I have contributed to the meaningful discussion here.

Hmm, wasn't it the Republicans who were trying to force a judge on us who'd had multiple DUI convictions, and got in trouble for resisting arrest on her latest? I don't recall the Democrats doing anything that outrageous.

I have no problem at all with my tax money going to pay for free contraception. As a matter of fact, I'd willingly pay more for that. Much more prudent than waiting and then paying to feed, house, supervise and educate unwanted children at public expense. ALL babies should be WANTED.

Put a bat house on the north side of your own house, up under the eaves! Put a couple of Purple Martin birdhouses on your property! Bats and Purple Martins eat more mosquitos than you can imagine. Also, never kill a dragonfly - another mosquito predator. Remember we have friends out there who are on OUR side.

I find the "nude recreation" booth as refreshing as the NRA booth is depressing. Something for everyone!

There's nothing easier to direct than light. Any light from Target Field that's going UP into people's windows is misdirected. Maybe the field's electricians should go look at that marvelous new invention, the Lamp Shade, and see how easy it is to have the light go where you want it and stop at the edge of that.

Posted on 08/12/14 at 02:47 pm in response to Crowning glory of Minnesota architecture: Foshay Tower

I remember when I was a kid -- when my folks would drive down to Minneapolis from upstate, the Foshay was the first thing we'd see to tell us we'd nearly arrived! You could see that thing from MILES away.

Then later on there was always the Weather Ball on top of it to tell us what was happening. Not that we could see it from home, of course, but WCCO would always tell us "The Weather Ball is Green, No Change Foreseen!" or "The Weather Ball is White, there's snow tonight!" Love the...
