Posted on 05/14/14 at 09:31 pm in response to Why are Senate DFLers blocking the toughest payday loan restrictions?

Actually the answer is probably more supply and demand. If less people were in such desperate means there wouldn't be so many loans necessary. In the meantime, people should be free conduct personal business amongst themselves.

Since a special session in a bonding year would be catastrophic for the DFL, the best move for the Legislature is to drop the completed bill on the Governor's desk on the last day so there won't be time to vote on a different bill.

I also don't understand how NOT including something in a bill results in ‘the Governor having "something rammed down my throat.’"

On the other hand, if that's how the Governor would actually feel, then he'd understand how about half the state feels...

This story "well" is going to dry up and then where are we?

His first six years have addressed most of the above issues and we can count on another solid six years of solid results.

Posted on 05/08/14 at 09:14 pm in response to Here comes another $103 million in Minnesota tax cuts

Can you call it a tax cut if you repeal part of that money? Can you call money given to cities and counties property tax relief if the money doesn't go towards reducing property taxes? Sure you can. Would it be truthful?

Any amount of money or inconvenience to a voter is unacceptable. You can vote for free, but not for a candidate without means.

And the Governor wanted the "Unsession". How many of his old laws have been removed? That's what I call leadership.

"What is new over the last decade is that we know with increasing certainty that climate change is happening now."

Our climate has been changing since the day the earth first began. This is not new, or news for that matter. Thank you all for jumping on the bandwagon.

Skoe followed that bizarre statement by digging himself into a hole. People shouldn’t need to buy liquor on Sundays, he said: “People should be able to plan just a little ahead.”

Shouldn't this apply to groceries, TVs, fertilizer, paint, clothing, and everything else that Minnesotans can purchase on Sunday? Dude! GET A CLUE!

Posted on 05/06/14 at 06:58 pm in response to New climate change report: 'Decreased agricultural productivity'

Weather and climate are two different things. The sports guy could come on and talk about the NFL 50 years from now, but since the telecast is about TODAY'S news it wouldn't make much sense.

Thanks for pointing out mainstream Mr. Douglas who mentions climate change on a very regular basis and has become very successful doing so despite all the right wing media outlets who have employed him.
