Neither Mr. Cage, nor Mr. Swift know or have spoken to Phyllis Kahn (unrelated to me), I think, a woman with whom in my twenty years in her district, I have conversed with on many issues. There is nothing wacky about her save in the minds of folks who want politicians who will serve their narrow interests. I think these sorts of ignorant comments will help Representative Kahn in this primary, so please, let these men and all others like them post some more, here.

Phyllis has always...

Oh yeah. Considering what the Archdiocese of Minneapolis and St. Paul and all those dioceses round the state are going through now, DeLaSalle is a big, big issue for everyone.

I am just glad there was someone to help keep them in check as they took over a city street and Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board land for their virtually private stadium.

Well, we'll just have to see what the voters know, won't we? As far as "her lengthy tenure," that grants us a great deal, not her (not so with Noor).

I mean that they teach kids that they can walk all over folks and get things that they don't have any right to have if they are persistent and deny the truth of matters whenever that truth works against their goals.


Where was Mr. Berg during the period that this stadium was being foisted on us?

I think a monastery brewing beer and baking bread for folks in this touristy and historic area would have helped finance and promote all that is Roman Catholicism in Minnesota much better than DLS and its students have.

Until then, we've got a global Roman Catholic clergy sex scandal and other connivances society suffers in the name of religion.

Your are blaming DLS's outlays to gain the use of our parkland for their stadium on Rep. Kahn?

Anything you have to say is colored by you finishing your tome with this.

It is kind of silly, but silly is how a significant number of Minneapolis folks saw the spectacle of 35 candidates running for mayor last year, a group that includes me (although I was really running to get people to think about a Council-manager system of government instead of the weak mayor-Council system).

I certainly would not have paid $500 to get my message out; I hardly spent a quarter of that to get a website up and cover my expenses during my 'campaign', so the higher fee...

The 500 signature requirement (or some lessor number of a percentage of registered voters, I think) is already state law along with the old $20 fee along with the ability of cites like Minneapolis to set their own filing fees.

I'm in agreement, surprisingly, with Mr. Tester about limiting filing to those who have collected the signatures and David Brauer has suggested a $1 Million filing fee to accomplish the same.

This explains much about where Mr. Tester is coming from in most of his comments on MinnPost articles.

I'm sorry to burst the movement conservative bubble, but the House is not a branch of government; only with the Senate does the House constitute one of the three branches of our government.

Alone, arrogant, and out of their f---ing minds, a House majority constitutes a gaggle of honking geese we need to spit and roast this November for foisting these turds upon our government and for showering us with the same through every communication medium.

Kline and Paulson have to go....
