Posted on 09/29/14 at 03:44 pm in response to Democrats target Mills' wealth — will it work?

George Soros heads up a list of front groups long enough to be a thread unto themselves.

And as anyone that doesn't get their information from "Rolling Stone" can tell you, he not only fights to disavow his involvement, but in the cases of Media Matters and The Center...

Ahh, my lurking twitter trolls, in formation. I had no idea. Not sure were you get the scat reference from, and, how does running for school board call my morals into question? Everything I ran to improve has worsened the point that even some leftists are calling "foul".

Does my history of correcting homework papers for SPPS teachers, serving on parent committees and tutoring kids in reading make me even more dastardly?

Opinions as to what I might or might not have done in similar circumstances do not mitigate what he did in fact do, and nothing could excuse the fact that he is on record as saying he feels not a whit of remorse about it. In fact he has said the experience shaped him; indeed.

You may not defend it, but you've made it clear that you excuse it. There may be a difference there, but I can't see it.

Man, that sounds like a coddled teen's response to a parent who finally tells them to get a job.

I don't know anyone could say how they would behave. But I do know I would feel shame and regret for something like all my life. It takes a real cold hearted individual to say, as he did, "I have no regrets. If I hadn't done it, someone else would".

Soros said that his behavior shaped him, and given the fact that he went on to make billions betting on the failure of economies and currencies I'd say that he's telling the truth.

I find him real easy to judge.

No, considering the millions of tax dollars wasted already and the millions more MNSure will require next year, some hearty "I told you so is perfectly appropriate.

Maybe, just maybe, future Governors will listen when industry experts are saying "no" and the majority of Minnesotans are saying "hell no".

No Hiram, "we" didnt decide any such thing; the Democratic party did. The majority of Americans were against Obamacare and most Minnesotans were against MNSure.

It never had anything to do with health care; it was born of politics. It should die the same way.

Single payer didnt fly because every politician knew supporting it was a career ender. You think the Obamacare fiasco, and the disgraceful VA scandal has made government medicine more attractive?

Personally, I hope the rump Demicratic caucus makes it a priority after the election.

Fracking is not going away, and now that the industry has gotten used to the logistics they were forced into, rail transport isnt going away either. Each state is free to enforce safety regulations; do it.

"..someone new, preferably local, with a commitment to the market, needs to step up."

Isn't there a Koch refinery in St. Paul Park?
