"John McClane: You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.
Matt Farrell: Then why you doing this?
John McClane: Because there's no body else to do it right now, that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.
Matt Farrell: Ah. That's what makes you that guy. "

Words To Live By
"The era of small government is over ... government has to be more proactive, more aggressive." ( Tim Pawlenty 2006)

"You're just petty politicians, who'd sooner sign onto the wisdom of a tyrant in another country, than the demands of ticked off voters in your own." (Neil Cavuto June 2008)

“I didn’t question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment.” Mr. Cheney went on: “The point I made and I’ll make it again is that Al Qaeda functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home. And my statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that then we will validate the strategy of Al Qaeda. I said it, and I meant it.” (Vice President Cheney NYT Feb. 2007)

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. (Ronald Reagan March 1, 1975)

"Oh, no! First of all, if I took one vote away from a serious candidate, it would be a sin." (Al Franken Time Magazine, 9/1/03)

Speaking of Wasteful Boondoggles – Conservative Ramsey’s Progressive Push

I’ve taken flak for pointing out this boondoggle being pushing by “rock solid conservatives”. The Ramsey stop for Northstar is pushing ahead despite principle, practicality, and dire fiscal times. Following the model of well we’ve only wasted tens of millions so far, what’s a few more, and hey, we may be in the middle of no where, but we still want federal and state taxpayers to make our couple hundred people not have to deal with living in the middle of no where.

I am astonished, ashamed, and embarrassed that this is moving forward. this is a criminal use of taxpayer funds. It makes absolutely no sense to add another stop to this. If this was Franken, Klobuchar, Ellison, or some Anoka County liberals, I could at least comprehend the push, but Look, Ramsey, Sivaraja, et al are supposed Iron Ladies or fiscal hawks.

Waste fraud, abuse. Rinse, lie on campaign trail, repeat.

I am shocked that this project is moving forward.

I have the feeling that this will cost members of the Anoka County board their positions in the 2012 election. They ran against waste like this and here they are pushing for it.
