The Governor cannot invoke executive action and take away funds. Any budget proposal he makes goes directly into the legislative shredder as are all Governor proposed budgets.

Were committing a crime at the time? Were in the process of threatening another person with great bodily harm?

Since the police kill many more whites than African-Americans, are they still racists? And why do they seem to hate men?

Otherwise the headline pretty much implies that police just randomly kill (white male) people.

Posted on 01/14/15 at 07:57 pm in response to Franken renews push for American-made steel for Keystone

There's a new Senate in town where minority party members may propose amendments and have them voted upon. Although strongly against the pipeline, our Senator can play both sides by trying to add this amendment. If the amendment passes it will be interesting to see if Senator Franken will vote for the project despite not enough Federal government study. My guess is that Senator Amy is a "No" vote no matter what.

Print the money. The federal government has done it for everything else, why discriminate now? A harder problem will trying to replace all the "savings" that the ACA is supposed to be pouring into the federal coffers.

As an aside, has everyone noticed how all "savings" or "costs)"are spread out over ten years now? It makes it sound like we're saving more. If you say $2 billion per year with an almost $17 trillion dollar national debt it just doesn't sound like real money.

Posted on 01/12/15 at 10:14 pm in response to As Minnesota jobless rate drops, so do unemployment benefit claims

Some of the people who no longer collect unemployment benefits finally dropped off when they had used up all of their allotted weeks. A year ago this was a travesty and uncaring, now it is great news!

2750 women? Per year. And now with free contraception from the ACA.

And yet, no outrage.

Which one do you think is being groomed for a Presidential run?

You beat me to the comment. The "crazy woman" was right and in spite of the President's best efforts, U.S. oil production increases have indeed provided gas prices at under $2.00 a gallon. Admit it folks, this prediction is way more than a "broken clock". Why is it so hard to admit that you were wrong?
