Posted on 06/24/14 at 10:13 am in response to Honour says campaign cash gives him advantage to take on Dayton

but a failed right wing philosophy will make it an effort in futility for him. He will find the $300,000, he lent his campaign, will be a bad investment. Just as it will be bad investment for the voters to vote for him and the failed Republican talking points. The Republicans have hamstrung themselves, even if they have any new ideas, because anyone straying from the Republican talking points is considered not Republican enough. It is more important to the Republicans, to be Republicans...

Posted on 06/20/14 at 08:39 am in response to Major flooding of the Mississippi feared

Rep Bachmann says the House is now unified like Cantor was their only problem. If she digs ever so little bit deeper she will find many more problems causing disarray among the House GOP. Among the problems, if she is able to look inward she will find she is part of the problem. Lucky for all she is leaving.

Why am I not surprised of the allegations against him. You can only operate on the fringe so long before it become obvious why you are on the fringe. One by one the fringe element of the GOP is finding itself in trouble.

Posted on 06/11/14 at 09:44 am in response to Dayton's reaction to NFL freebie grab: 'It doesn't look good'

The NFL GREED Factor continues to be on full display for all to see. Have the public build you a stadium that much of the public will never use or can't afford to use, put a mediocre football team on the field, ask for everything, just for you, to be free. It is why the rich keep getting richer. Unabashed GREED.

From now until the Republican primary will be the free for all where each Republican candidate will be required to do the obligatory political dance to prove why the other person isn't qualified to be the Republican candidate. In most cases they will be right. Their main problem will be to find out what the other person is for, as we all know what they are against. The list of what each is for will be short and pointless because it will be based on the failed talking points of a broken...

to see if the Republicans can get any answers, any at all, out of the candidates their own candidates? I suspect it will be more evasive, no content, answers. The kind that leave you wondering what the heck did they say or what did they mean? It will also be interesting to see if Minnesotan's want more social engineering and can kicking done by the Republicans or do they want more real progress. My guess is there will be another election lost by the Republicans in November.

Posted on 05/22/14 at 10:02 am in response to Public tab for Minnesota's Super Bowl will be kept secret

half to population hollers from the tallest roof tops the taxes are too high, do you get the feeling the wealthy are the reason the taxes are too high. The entire sports industry is majorly out of control and those of us not interested in a Super Bowl shouldn't have to be paying part of the price. There should be an event ticket tax to cover whatever the wealthy want to accomplish. When the wealthy are involved there is always secrecy and special dispensation. Pohlad didn't want the...

Posted on 05/21/14 at 10:53 pm in response to Pro-stadium politicians bask in Minnesota's Super Bowl win

The public paid for the majority of the stadium. Just as an example the stadium might be called the "Original Mattress Factory Stadium" if they put up enough money to name the darn thing. The Republicans holler and scream our taxes are too high. So now, I presume the NFL owners are mostly Republicans, they want a tax break so there will be more money for attendees to buy their meaningless mementos rather than making some money for the state, through tax money, that would help lowers our...

Posted on 05/07/14 at 06:54 pm in response to You bought the stadium, corporations will pay Super Bowl bid

The conservative mantra is the "taxes are too high", but when it comes to the wealthy making out it is okay to give a tax break so the wealthy can check off Super Bowl from their bucket list. There isn't one piece of data, that wasn't been generated by the NFL, that says a Super Bowl does anyone but the wealthy any good. Super bowl, the over hyped event where two teams show up, but usually only one team is ready to play, which makes for a very boring event. John Q. Public paid for most of...

Posted on 04/29/14 at 03:17 pm in response to Poll: Dayton and Franken 'well ahead' of GOP challengers

Then you will see why Dayton and Franken have a cash advantage. The Republicans keep offering political extremists, the unfulfilled promise of brand change, tired failure based talking points, and candidates that won't state their positions. Their war on women, minorities, and common sense continues. Republicans have voted 50 times to repeal Obamacare so obviously we can't trust what they say as they have even failed at achieving their own self proclaimed number one goal. They continue to...
