Posted on 02/16/14 at 06:41 pm in response to Five dead in Minneapolis fire

The leadership of the Minneapolis/St. Paul archdiocese is not helping the damaged image of the Catholic Church. Not quite what the public expects of them. After they were ordered to testify under oath they fight the order stating transparency is the issue. If it were one or two priests maybe handling in a non-transparent manner would work providing they made meaningful changes so it wouldn’t happen again. The problem is much larger than one or two priests. If they are going to give the...

Posted on 02/13/14 at 05:32 pm in response to Archdiocese reveals it has spent $8.8 million on priest misconduct

The very institution, which above all, is be expected to keep children safe, can't keep them safe. The church is so cloaked in secrecy that when abuse does happen the church can't deal with it in an ethical manner. How does the church preach the word of God and yet it is so weak it can't keep children safe. It takes a court of law to get them to reveal their very sad handling of abuse and expose the cost associated with the abuse. I can't help but wonder what else the church is hiding....

George W. Bush - disaster, Tim Pawlenty - disaster, Scott Walker - disaster, Chris Christie - disaster, Michelle Bachmann - disaster, Mitch McConnell - disaster, Sarah Palin - disaster, Ted Cruz - disaster, Rand Paul - disaster and the list goes on. What they all have in common is they are hardliner political zealots. What the Republican's really need is their political moderates to return. They are the ones able to work with others. They weren't against ideas that were once their own....

Food stamps are getting cut so there will be less food at home and now we can't see our way for the kids to have some food. We are turning into a heartless society when we feel if serves our political needs to punish kids by withholding food. Cut their food and then wonder why their test scores are not so good. Voters better sit up and start paying attention to the politicians who want to continually work the system in their very self-centered favor.

You can't put the words Fox and news in the same sentence because they are not related. It is strictly Fox Entertainment for the very few. Fox would rather manufacture the news than report on it.

It proves the Republicans are out of quality candidates. But then again it is the 6th district trying to replace Bachmann. The bar isn't very high.

but they still don't have any answers. If they would put as much effort into helping people as they do working against them and our system of government we would all be better off. They have voted over 40 times to repeal the Affordable Care Act so they would look good to their constituents. It is the Republican way to keep doing the same thing over and over and expect different results. I believe the Republicans should repeal the Republican Party and come back to the citizen of the US...

Posted on 01/31/14 at 04:39 pm in response to Betty McCollum says Congress not meeting obligations to tribes

Just when you think she has pulled off her best stuff she invents another one. The comedians are going to miss Michelle and her antics. I didn't realize there were so many ways to attract attention. For attention seekers it doesn't matter if it is positive attention or negative attention as long as they get it. I see Senator Dave Thompson at the MN capital has chosen Senator Michelle Benson as his running mate in their run at the governorship. Another Michelle from the 6th district....

From the absolutely positively totally broken and dysfunctional Republican Party comes the three headed response to the President’s State of the Union response. Cathy McMorris Rodgers – Republican. Okay I get it, the party does have a women in it. Rodgers appears to be much down the line of a Michele Bachmann. No real accomplishments after being in office for 8 years. Hard right conservative. She is not known for working with Democrats. Mike Lee, T-Party; Architect of the last...

Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said on CNN that he is happy there were all the Republican responses to the SOTU. It appears the fact that there isn't any Republican Party message for the public to focus on doesn't bother him. He was happy, the biggest thorn in the Republican's side, the T-party, gave a response. The T-party is the group mainly responsible for taking the Republican Party to it knees, but nevertheless he is still happy they gave a response. The party...
