Posted on 04/18/14 at 10:58 am in response to Minnesota's minimum wage may suck workers from Wisconsin

Beyond cheese what do you plan to buy when you flock to Wisconsin? I don't believe you can justify the trip. We have the same quality cheese, readily available here. You can throw up a fog ball, hoping it will stick, but you can't justify a trip to Wisconsin for what little you would buy there. Minnesota will be the benefactor in the long run. If Wisconsin wants to work their way to the bottom that is up to them.

I prefer to keep Minnesota a nice place to live. If you have notice how we rank high in many quality of life polls, the extra cost is worth it.

If they want to move, let them move, others will replace them. Mississippi is wide open if they prefer diminished amenities and a lower skilled workforce. There isn’t any evidence showing a massive number of companies move from Minnesota’s because of taxes. This tax scare thing is a fog ball thrown out there in hopes that it will stick. I'...

Beyond failed talking points - NOTHING. We can still mark the GOP's effort to change their brand as no progress.

Another hollowed out Republican. Beyond talking points there is nothing.

Just wait it is going to get worse. There are two kinds of votes in America. The one at the ballot box and the one from the checkbook. Don't think the large amounts from the checkbooks don't have major strings attached. If you thought we have corruption now, just wait it is going to get worse. The endless chasing of the money is one reason they don't get anything done. One election ends and the very next day the next election starts. Common sense has been beaten out of the process...

The unions are trying to do good for MANY. The likes of the Koch brother are trying to good for THEMSELVES. Huge difference.

Posted on 04/09/14 at 05:47 pm in response to House DFL pushing women's pay and workplace protection

Didn't all restaurants fall on bad times and go out of business, as the Republicans claimed, when smoking wasn't allowed inside the facility. I guess smoker have to eat too. Now a raise in a hamburger price is going to send me to a neighboring state. It's going to take Minnesotan's twenty buck round trip to North or South Dakota, five dollars to Iowa or Wisconsin, to save a dollar on a hamburger. I predict they won't be going. Given the oil boom in North Dakota hamburger prices are...

Posted on 04/04/14 at 05:25 pm in response to Ortman marches to the right with endorsements, positions

How about that, Citizens United is right. Minnesotan's deserve a clear choice, it just isn't Ortman. Minnesota doesn't deserve anyone from a party as regressive as the republicans. She isn't proud enough of her record to stand behind it so she has to move farther to the right so she can be more regressive. If she can't stand behind her record she doesn't deserve to be in office.

Posted on 04/03/14 at 11:13 am in response to Nienstedt deposition ends 'abruptly,' 'heatedly'

Archbishop John Nienstedt, others of the archdioceses, and Popes over the years have grossly mismanaged the handling of abuse within the church, which has resulted in public indignation, doubts cast on the safety of the church, and possible bankruptcy. Preaching the word of God is apparently different than living the word of God.

It was nothing more that a session of Republican buzz words, Republican talking points, and of course there were no suggestions of how to fix that which they say is wrong. The Republicans are a hollow party. They are working off of Republican policies that have a long history of failure. I do prefer the Republican waste their money trying to remove Senator Franken and Governor Dayton. We know how fiscally responsible the Republicans are so to them this is a good expenditure, albeit it...
