Yup, we are still recovering and repairing from the Pawlenty/Zellers disaster. How is your Republican party doing on recovering from their own $2,000,000 disaster brought on by a previous Republican leader, Tony Sutton? Face it the Republicans just are not fiscally responsible, despite all their baseless claims. There is just too much evidence to the contrary. Living in the world of fiction will not make the Republican story any better.

Here are recent examples of Republicans, and I mean all Republicans, and how they manage. We have George W. Bush who brought the country to its knees. Then we have Tim Pawlenty who left the state after he amassed a 5-6 BILLION dollar debt. Why do I throw all Republicans in with Bush and Pawlenty, because they were lock step with the Bush and Pawlenty decisions. Once upon a time there were moderate Republicans who would speak out, but don't now. Moderates have been drummed out of the...

It's time to move to Wisconsin.

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.

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 07:31 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 09:31 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.
