I would be happy if the GOP would be more (a LOT more) science based instead of religious based. We need to get society and our policies back to logic and reason as its primary source of guidance, not superstition and ghosts.

If Johnson wants to appeal to hearts, that will come along once a well reasoned argument has been laid down. But if he refuses to seek out the best solution no matter what its source is, then he's already lost half the population.

Cleaning up our air as well as reducing carbon is a sensible position. Every year we lose millions of people to disease caused by air pollution. Pop up to the top of the IDS and you see this brown smudge hanging over the Cities.

Save money, save lives, and reduce pollution. Your life may depend on it.

Crap--you beat me to that one! I guess I'll have to order up the fifty pound bag of popcorn for the GOP races this season.

I used to take the bus into the fair as you could park in a lot nearby and take one of the feeder buses to the gate in about ten minutes. But then someone from the brain trust passed a law saying that Metro Transit can't compete with private companies for contracts like this. The next year Lorentz took over the routes and it instantly became a total disaster. Buses were late or didn't show up at all, broke down frequently, and all traffic was routed to the south gate, which created...

Ron, thanks for the update on the mining disaster. Your work helps to make us an informed public so we can pursue intelligent discourse when projects like this pop up in our own back yard.

I notice the usual mining advocates aren't wading on about how Polymet will provide jobs jobs jobs on the range. No word at all about how technology and techniques have improved and we'll have absolutely nothing to worry about for five hundred years.

Once again the people who raised concerns are right and the people who say "trust me--it'll be fine" were wrong. Sorry, guys, but it isn't fine.

They rarely use all the military equipment, so basically they just sit in the garage to be admired. There's your tax dollars at work, folks: armored cars that serve no useful purpose on a daily basis, but are there just in case you get uppity.

Someone save us from ourselves.

Al Franken sounds to me like he's got his head on straight. His proposals are fact-based, unlike McFadden, who thinks taking the healthy young people off of Medicare will somehow save money.

Republicans need to ditch ideology and get back to science and reasoning while we still have a country left. Right now they're doing their level best to lead the country down the road to destruction.

Mills needs to get a haircut if he wants to be from central casting.

The fact that he categorically rejects any socialist solution without even listening to the proposal tells me he's not someone I want representing me in Congress. Personally, I want someone who has an open mind and is willing to look at all possible solutions, regardless of their source. Mr. Mills claims there aren't any working socialist programs, while at the same time he turns a blind eye to our police force,...

I agree that Mr. Mills' position is indeed ridiculous, but unfortunately his stance fosters and supports people's ire with him. One candidate pursues policies that help the middle class and poor. The other wants policies that only favor the wealthy.

I'm sorry you don't agree with the perceptions, but that's the fault of your candidate, not the public.
