Posted on 08/07/14 at 09:11 am in response to Minneapolis Park Board dumps 'The Yard'

Norquist has the GOP right by the gruff of the neck because to GOP lacks the skill and common sense to make their own decisions. Norquist, connected to the Polaroid fortune, spends his time making sure he doesn't lose a cent of his fortune. Republicans aren't allowed to stray from the failed Republican doctrine even when it will benefit Republicans as well. Norquist is a short sighted self serving individual who deserves no more attention than you or I as he has been elected to NOTHING!...

For years politicians have turned a blind eye to America's immigration problem because it benefitted their district. The Bush administration response to illegal immigration was always “THEY CAN COME BECAUSE THEY WILL DO THE JOBS NO ONE ELSE WILL DO”. This migration served to benefit the mega agricultural companies in places like California and Arizona, among others. Families came here, did the work, and had children (now American citizens). The pressure was put on the politicians, who had...

Now he can hit the talk show and try to rebuff his fading star.

Posted on 07/29/14 at 11:03 am in response to Parkway showdown: Minnehaha vs. Wheelock

No matter who you feel the winner is everyone is a winner because of what both parkways offer everyone. The foresight of the politicians and city planners years ago left the people of today and tomorrow with a real gift that can enjoyed by all.

Posted on 07/23/14 at 08:31 am in response to Bachmann considering 2016 presidential run

The Republicans could have a lot to choose from in 2016. A real quality crop. Bachmann, Cruz, Paul, Rubio, Ryan, Christie, Romney, and another Bush, just what the country needs. Lets throw Cheney in there too because he hasn't figured out how to get off defending his war skills. I can't wait for the debates as the Republican on Republican war continues. They will have to jack up their wars on women, minorities, and Latinos if these three groups are to get any attention at all. It has...

good old Jesse will light up the talk show circuit until some real news comes along and he and his fading star will be drop kicked to the sideline.

Posted on 07/14/14 at 10:31 am in response to Walk away, Scruff Face: An open letter to Jesse Ventura

Win or lose this will get Jesse on the talk show circuit where the spotlight is that he seeks. Self promotion is his game. He doesn't have any shortage of ego. Just like little kid. It doesn't matter if it is good attention or bad. Attention is attention. Jesse wins.

Posted on 07/11/14 at 10:35 am in response to Voter-fraud allegations dismissed in Kahn-Noor race

Time and again the politicians that lose claim voter fraud, but can't come up with any proof. It isn't voter fraud, it's the politician's egos that cause the disbelief that they lost. They can't go to the fact that they lost contact with their constituents or that they were on the wrong side of key issue. It can only be voter fraud. It is a tired, costly, political excuse. Face it, House District 60B has a new Representative. If Rep. Noor does good, rejoice. If he does poorly there is...

Posted on 07/09/14 at 08:57 am in response to UberX and Lyft clear key Minneapolis City Council committee

No matter the outcome Jesse will be the winner, in his eyes, because the attention spotlight will be on him. Endless self promotion is Jesse's M.O. The talk shows will light up with Jesse talk and that is all he is after. Jesse's a "C" level actor with one acting line, I don't have time to die", to his credit, which is the sum of his resume. As a politician, it turned out he had a paper thin skin when it came to the publics critique of him. Jesse has a far better impression of himself...

Posted on 07/07/14 at 12:46 pm in response to Twin Cities are short 460 bus shelters

It doesn't matter to Jesse if he wins or loses. The main thing to him is he will have the spotlight once again. Win or lose Jesse will be able to make the talk show circuit to self promote. Of course it will all be Jesse babble but the heat of the spotlight will feel so good. He is just like Punxsutawney Phil, the ground hog, he has to make an appearance about once a year, for a very brief moment, but worth it to him. A little spotlight is much better than no spotlight.
