I have put a lot of miles on bikes. When I lived in AZ after college sometimes over 8000 miles in a year (non commuting). I have lived in the Twin Cities now since 1993. The other year I got two bikes that I love riding and started to ride to my shop a couple times a week and to meet my wife at lunch once a week. This summer stopped me from riding. I'm used to cars being a constant danger when riding but the biggest danger to me this year has been other cyclists. In June alone I had three "...

Posted on 10/17/14 at 08:00 pm in response to Promises, promises: revisiting Mark Dayton's 2010 campaign pledges

I voted for Governor Dayton and in the past voted for and liked him as our Senator. I was never a resident of Minneapolis but I liked Rybak. The unbelievable dishonesty and legal trickery to get the new Vikings stadium is unforgivable. Every part of the process was suspect. People always say to get over it. My question back is, if entering the people you represent into a $500,000,000 fraud with a criminal isn't bad enough to get worked up over, what is?

Posted on 10/08/14 at 07:28 pm in response to One intriguing argument why potential voters aren’t going to the polls

I am in my fifties and for the first time since being 18 I have no plans to vote. I voted for Obama in 2008 and didn't expect much being that he really had no experience, but he couldn't be as bad as Bush had been. Sadly he has been much worse than I ever expected. I voted for Dayton and I always liked Rybak (couldn't vote for him since I don't live in Minneapolis) but the awful ways they did everything possible to make sure the criminal Wilf got his stadium at all our expense still sickens...

When you are trying to get intelligent former engaged voters to vote anymore may be it is time to look at yourself and not them. Gore Vidal called our system the most corrupt on the planet. We as voters don't matter. Stop voting and stop giving legitimacy to the fraud. Our system is bought and paid for.

Before more people take the time to tell me about the process or consequences of not voting I will pass along some information. I have voted in every election since I was 18, I have worked for campaigns, I have done get out the vote and campaign door knocking, I have volunteered for phone banks, I have been in he room when members of the two parties openly discussed their involvement in fraud that cost the city over half of a billion dollars (not in MN), And I have donated generously to...

"Well, sir, there's nothin' on earth like a genuine bona-fide electrified six-car monorail! What'd I say?"

Posted on 07/31/14 at 07:27 pm in response to Against the über-presidency: Minnesota Republicans vote to sue Obama

Obama is by far the biggest disappointment I have ever voted for and it is just stunning that these "morans" in the republican party hate Obama so much. He is the best republican president that I know of. He has done things that no real Democrat would do like protect Wall Street crooks at any cost, blocking the Senate from investigating Rove under oath, he gives more to faith based groups than Bush did (after promising he would stop it), restarting nuclear power, opening the Atlantic coast...

Posted on 07/23/14 at 11:43 am in response to Mike McFadden open to raising the age for Medicare benefits

Cut the FICA tax on all people and employers in half and apply the new rate to all income levels. No one over making less than $213,600 would see any increase and people making less than $106,800 would see their rates cut in half. It would be the biggest stimulus ever for small businesses and the self-employed. Medicare has real financial problems unlike Social Security which is still solvent for a long time. Without Medicare being able to openly bargain for drug prices we have no chance of...

We have shown over and over again that we do not have the interest or the will as a society to move to cleaner forms of energy. No matter how disastrous the past failures have been and how devastating the future consequences will be it doesn't matter. We will not change.

Posted on 07/13/14 at 09:12 am in response to The Minneapolis housing boom, explained

Minneapolis has fairly poor public transportation which means for most of the transportation needs of the average person they need to get into a car. The new apt living is not just a lot of people locating downtown but a huge influx of cars that will make congestion, parking and air quality much worse. It is very sad that Mayor Hodges wants to increase the population of Minneapolis to 500,000. The infrastructure can't handle that without a lot of headaches and wasted time for everyone. Once...
