"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)

Dayton – Cutting Your Taxes, Expanding Them, Then Raising Them

RF Flashback circa 2007: Lunacracy In Action – Absence Matters – Destructive Energy Bill Stalled, “Less” Destructive One Passes

Lunacracy – A form of Government where reality and common sense are excluded from the debate, where special interest groups have more clout than the average citizens being governed. The Constitution is not to be considered a binding blueprint for the role and powers of such Government.

Lunacrat – An elected official who is more concerned with special interest support than doing what is right for the people they were elected to represent.

Oh look, unelected bureaucrat demands more of your money to be used against your best interests.

Met Council chairwoman supports proposed transit sales tax hike during State of Region

Metropolitan Council Chair Sue Haigh reiterated her support for Gov. Mark Dayton’s proposed transit tax on Monday, Feb. 11 during her “State of the Region” address at the St. Paul Union Depot on Kellogg Boulevard.

Appearing before hundreds of onlookers,

And there were just a dozen or so who showed up to defend their 2nd Amendment rights from Dayton’s allies in the Legislature, but hey, they are professional journalists, they just count differently. When its a liberal action item, they count fingers and toes.

Haigh said that the recently-renovated train depot, first completed in 1923, represented the kind of long-term commitment to transportation infrastructure that the region is once again contemplating.

The “region” Dayton and his minions in the shadow government of Met Council focus on is downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul. Their only plans for the broader Metro area is taxation….. OK fine, and to make it nearly impossible to drive your own car so you will finally surrender to their 19th century plan of trains trains trains.

“The generation that invested in this building did us a great favor in constructing this kind of lasting investment,” she said.

It probably cost a few hundred thousand dollars to build, and these lunatics just dumped over $250 million into it in order to explain why they needed to tear up a main thoroughfare between Minneapolis and St. Paul and disrupt thousands of peoples’ lives and put a bunch of business out of business. Ribbon cutting ceremony trumps jobs and the economy.

But hey, let’s scrape off the lipstick ad get to the hog suckling at the teet of the Twin City taxpayers.

Dayton has said he will push for a .25 percent sales tax, equivalent to a nickel on every $20 purchase, within the seven county metro. If approved by the state Legislature, the funds could help launch up to 15 passenger rail and Bus Rapid Transit lines within the next 20 years.

Record high gas prices. Stagnant economic growth. Tax increases hitting every Minnesotan. Uncertain cost of health insurance and the looming possibility of employers cutting hours to avoid the Government overreach in Dayton’s dream of Obamacare.

And here we have Dayton’s unelected shadow government trying to dig into our wallets for even more money to spend on their social engineering.

Maybe in heaven the news media will inform voters just how much disdain these bureaucrats have for free will and free markets.

While rome is burning, this lady is building a taj ma hall to rekindle that love affair Americans gladly made obsolete a century ago.

The locomotive.

Lunacrats:
