Guess I never thought of it that way, but it would be cool if he did because that would mean the road would be open around Labor Day

Cutting the ribbon AND accepting the invitation from McCain for VP?

Wonder how many black helicopters will be hovering wink

Would be nice to see it just open one day, no fanfare, no ribbon cutting.

Wanna bet OBERSTAR is front row. He will surely be grabbing the spotlight if at all possible. That is if he remembers where MN actually is.

Good one Wade... Ha.

But really from a guy who wore ribbons on his chest for accomplishments. Really. Let them bask in jobs actually completed. At least it will get done. Who is going to stand out on the Wakota Bridge and cut a tape. Who would allow traffic to be stopped long enough.

That disaster has already missed its date and has a long way to go.

Pawlenty taking credit for a transportation intiative, hilarious. I sure hope Carol Molnau is there beside him.

Oh that's right, T-Paw fixed it so the bridge would fall so he could have it built up again by the time the Reps came here. I'm sure the time line has nothing to do with the huge insentives the company building it is getting. On top of that no Rep can do any good ever in this state as they are pure EVIL!!!

Dont forget Coleman and klobuchar will be elbowing for position also. I wonder who's gonna have the biggest elbow upper cut. Coleman has more at stake so I lean towards his upper cut to be stronger.

That mongeloud looking Klobuchar will be up front. As least she has a stray eye to keep on Coleman while she's looking on though.

Now you're just being silly again. I wish that gynormous post count of yours had more to do with quality than quantity. Libs this, dems that. That approach, employed by a great many, has gotten all of us all diddly and is ever so tiresome.

I have voted for Mr. Pawlenty and will do so again based upon his commitment to fiscal resposnsibility; something this state is always in need of. My major complaint with him is his continued opposition to something a strong economy must have; an adequate, if not robust, transportation system. At least he finally came around on the Northstar rail after initially getting in the way of that too.

The Dems in this state get most of it wrong, but at least they had the nuts to get transportation right paid for by the users.

That's what I do and I do it well. Why would you want to take polotics or anything on the interent so serious that you get all tied up in knots? No reason too. And it's no more humorous to me than what say people say about him planning to have this or that done so he looks good for the convetions. Has nothing to do with that. He has done some very good things since he's been in and we aren't sitting in the black all the time.

Let's let all of the roads go to [PoorWordUsage]. Problem solved. While the timing isn't convenient, the need is real after long-term negligence. Carol Molnau as Head of Tranportation is all the evidence you need. You suppose she cleans the Governor's mansion too. laugh

I enjoy Sandmannd's contribution to FM. Not everybody is gonna have the same point of veiw. I think his post are of quality and substance even though I disagree with him on some things.

That said, The fiscal resposability you refer to is all accomplished by slapping huge amounts of on anything he can get his hands on. And the majority of those fee's are directed towards a certain class off people.

This adminastration has neglected or put on the back buner repairs to our system in order to push through other projects of intrest. He is shoving ethonal down our throats wile giving millions of $$ of subsidies to these ethenal owners when they are making huge profits and sistain there buisness without the help of the gov. Who is he working for the Ethenal investors or the State of Minnesota. The dum_ sh_t wanted to put an ethanal plant in south west Minnesota where water supply is already in short demand.

Thanks man, I aprreciate that. I would agree with you that we don't have the same views, but as said before, I'm sure if we were all fishing together we would have a blast and that's what it's all about. Just cause I disagree with some or have different views, doesn't mean I don't have respect for all. Still doesn't mean I don't like to tease or pick on ya!! cool

They could have used bonding to pay for the bridge and other transpo issues, but then they wouldn't be able to raise taxes to put MN near the top of the list of highest taxed states. What fun is that? smirk So instead they jacked up our taxes and STILL had a massive bonding bill to build polar bear exhibits and numerous hockey arenas amongst other frivolous pet projects. Yeah, that's Molnau fault alright. They went on a witch hunt and she was the target, yet had nothing to do with a bridge built to substandard specs under a state government controlled by the democrats at that time.

It may have been a witch hunt but she still had the information The bridge and others like it were in bad shape but she and others chose to look the other way.

My point was not that she was responsible for the bridge falling, which would be as silly as your assertion that the democratic legislators of the time were to blame, (you sure practice the misdirection game). But rather her history and record of her department during her tenure is indicative of Pawlenty's lack of commitment to what I consider to be a very important part of a strong economy: an effective transportation system.

That's exactly why I pointed that out because it's ridiculous to put the blame on Molnau as some are wont to do.

Oh, and if anyone thinks that Steve Murphy won't be there with his crooked smile you are sorely mistaken. That is unless someone else needs screwing over and he can't make it to the ceremony.

    • Ever notice how the politically bias media does everything it can to keep you voting for one side or another, can't let any 3rd parties in because the powers that be lose control. They are doing an amazing job with our minds that is for sure, both sides.
    • I would regulate the drugs just like alcohol, pretty easy actually. Now we would have to draw a line in the sand on what drugs are legal and which to keep illegal, we can't use public opinion for this because that is what got us in trouble in the first place. There have been numerous studies on drugs that at least give us an idea on how dangerous they are, things will get a little confusing because some legal drugs now are the most dangerous but there is no reason to go backwards with those drugs because we have already been there and it didn't work. I can't possibly cover every detail in a post so I am guessing you want to know which drugs to make legal and which should remain banned.

      Lethal dose chart, one could make a case for drawing a diagonal line to the right of caffeine.


      This chart can be a little deceiving because obviously some drugs that are used more than others but it tells an interesting story none the less.


      Another physical harm chart, these may or may not work but again just a guideline on drugs we could consider for legalization.
    • Anyone have one?  Last year they ran them on sale for $200 at the local farm n fleet.  That happens again i might have to gets me one!
    • Before anyone goes out and buys an ION....     Also Dewalt has a 9ah battery now too.   http://www.homedepot.com/p/DEWALT-FLEXVOLT-20-Volt-60-Volt-Lithium-Ion-9-0-Ahr-Battery-Pack-DCB609Y/300610594?cm_mmc=Shopping|THD|G|0|G-BASE-PLA-D25T-PowerTools|&gclid=CjwKEAiArbrFBRDL4Oiz97GP2nISJAAmJMFah6JUW7Wlbuw6Pzzf6CZFbYHwv3JOUaeQnfyiJpPemhoCm_Xw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

    • So should I get a reality show first? Trust me the two parties are going to great job of taking themselves out. I am also unelectable with the current mindset the voters have so don't worry about me.

      In other news who needs Russia when the DHS is trying to hack our elections? Sure they might have been just been looking for weaknesses but it does seem a little unsettling that the fed wants to get their hands on the state systems.

    • Please describe in detail why the war on drugs has been successful and why we should continue with the same policies we have had for the past 3 decades or so.    I am really wondering what the timeline is for these policies to start working.
    •   If you use Prohibition as an example, speakeasies turned into bars and nightclubs, and bootleggers turned into pimps and politicians.  So that option for drug dealers is still open.   Of course if prostitution was legalized, about the only thing left would be to get into politics, so I guess some of them might have to turn to more honest professions like drug counseling or working for the FDA....   Drug stores could still operate under the eagle eye of the FDA and federal revenuers, and keep us all safe.   The big question is what would all the Carrie Nations of the world do?                                        
    •   The Republican party was originally formed as an opposition party to the Federalists, so now that the DNC and the RNC are both federalists, there is still room for a true republican party.
    • Is it happening this year?
