How about those of us that object out of good old secular sense of human decency; not a speck of religion in it...is that OK with y'all?

You could wipe religion off the face of the planet and you'd still have to deal with the objection of people who's morality is directed by their sense of human decency. So if the "goal" is uniform approval, it's never, ever gonna happen.

"Selma", the movie, has been roundly criticized, by folks a lot more versed on the truth than I, for distorting history. Seems to me that no time is a good time for that.

Fiction has it's place, but people wanting to honor King should do so by examining the factual historical record, in my opinion.

Events of the past couple of months surrounding key backers, "The Human Rights Campaign" make re-visiting the whole "anti-bullying" agenda very worthwhile.

" creating a curious learner takes parenting, nutrition, care, classrooms, discoveries, a community that places children first, not its own needs for ever more things or money."

I'm guessing the author's isn't a welcome voice over at the spacious offices of Education Minnesota!

Public schools: ""We asked reeeeal nice, but noooo. OK fine; now we'll just take it"

Guess that whole "investment" spiel ran a bit thin.

Do union nannies make at least the state's minimum after SEIU takes it's cut?

Curious. Will the splendid Senators require separate crews to staff their primary and secondary offices?

Also, I wonder at the lack of concern that "leadership wouldn’t go into detail on the nature of the disagreement over space" from the foo...I mean constituents, that are actually footing the bill for all this splendorization? More Chicago style transparency.....

Oddly enough, the biggest threat to freedom of speech in this country comes not from religious radicals, but from radical secularists and the victim class being created most college campuses.

Tax breaks for business:

"You have no assurance it's going to get passed on to build the business or you have no assurance it's not just going to go to the bottom line, dividends or other things."

Increasing LGA:

"You have no assurance it's going to get passed on to taxpayers and you have no assurance it's not just going to go to left leaning special interest priorities or other things."

Didn't Bakk vote for the huge increase in LGA last year?
