“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)

Klobuchar Approves Of Benghazi Coverup

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton washed her hands of any responsibility in the murders of 4 Americans and cover up by the Obama administration.

Don’t forget, that with in moments of the terrorist attack, the Obama administration put more into the political response then they did into a security response.

So what does Minnesota’s Senior Senator who was first elected to “ask tough questions” have to say?

Run Hillary, run!

Accountability is a 4 letter word to Democrats. Our nation is in chaos, and Democrats are looking to the next election, not solving the problems facing our nation.

Nolan: Obamacare Is Just The First Step…..

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

Democrat Congressman Rick “I hate Washington” Nolan of CD8 must be feeling the heat of being out raised by Republican Stewart Mills. He is making media waves for saying President Obama needs to fire someone for the Obamacare disaster.

The local media of course is lapping it up. But what did Nolan do to help prevent the disaster? He took out his pom poms.

On March 23rd, 2010, President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law, providing coverage to 129 million Americans with pre-existing conditions, allowing students to stay on their parents’ plans a little longer, saving senior citizens money by addressing the donut hole in Medicare, and guaranteeing that women pay the same as men for health insurance.

The Affordable Care Act – or “ObamaCare” – is the first step, not the last, in our nation’s quest for providing Americans with the assurance, security, and the peace of mind that accompanies quality, low-cost health care.

Enrollment for individuals and small businesses in the MNsure marketplace began October 1st.

So here’s what you need to know:

1. On October 1st, Minnesota launched MNsure, a health insurance marketplace for individuals who are uninsured or who need to find new coverage. MNsure is a one-stop shop where both individuals and small businesses can browse through health care plans to find the right coverage for themselves or for their employees.

2. You will get to choose your coverage by browsing through plans and costs side-by-side from health care providers that are now competing for your business. You can search for plans with specific features that match the health needs of both yourself and your family.

3. If you like the plan you have, you can keep it. And in fact, you’ll get a host of other built-in new consumer protections.

[Source http://nolan.house.gov/the-affordable-care-act Accessed 10/24/13]

If this disaster is just the first step, could it be that I was right and Obamacare wasn’t designed to work, but rather destroy the insurance industry requiring a complete government takeover AKA single-payer?

MNSure’s Unreasonable Search and Seizure – I Plead The 4th

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

There is a new trend in Government, data is collected and shared with law enforcement and the IRS. Don’t worry though, its “just in case” you break the law. Of course this runs amuck of the Constitution, but that document is completely ignored now by politicians and agents of Government.

4th Amendment: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

At the Federal level, the SAFE Act does a similar thing, including sending your finger prints and an FBI background check to the Department of Justice where it will be stored – just in case.

I saw a story on Drudge this morning about Maryland’s “marketplace” and how personal data is “protected” – more properly put – used to implicate you in a crime.

Maryland’s Health Connection, the state’s Obamacare marketplace, has been plagued by delays in the first days of open enrollment.  If users are able to endure long page-loading delays, they are presented with the website’s privacy policy, a ubiquitous fine-print feature on websites that often go unread. Nevertheless, users are asked to check off a box that they agree to the terms.

The policy contains many standard statements about information automatically collected regarding Internet browsers and IP addresses, temporary “cookies” used by the site, and website accessibility.  However, at least two conditions may give some users pause before proceeding.

The first is regarding personal information submitted with an application for those users who follow through on the sign up process all the way to the end.  The policy states that all information to help in applying for coverage and even for making a payment will be kept strictly confidential and only be used to carry out the function of the marketplace.  There is, however, an exception: “[W]e may share information provided in your application with the appropriate authorities for law enforcement and audit activities.”

Obamacare is a Federal law requiring ‘marketplaces’ so chances are every state will be the same….. MNSure is Mark Dayton’s version of Obamacare, I wonder what it does with data. Via MNSure’s terms and conditions page (aka what you must agree with to comply with this federal mandate. (AKA involuntary search and seizure)

With whom may we share information?

We will only share information about you as needed and as allowed or required by law. We may share your information with agencies or persons who need the information to do their jobs, such as MNsure employees, investigators and auditors, community assistance partners you are working with, law enforcement officials, other state, federal and local governmental agencies, your health care insurer, agency, managed care organization or others who pay for your care, and anyone else authorized by law to receive the information

What happened to the 4th Amendment?

I know defenders of Obama will quickly point out that most websites include similar language, but Obamacare is a mandate. Its involuntary (unless you helped elect Obama and Democrats and are owed a political favor so are granted a waver).

I guess Nancy Pelosi was right, we Congress did have to pass the bill before we could read the bill.

Just a reminder to everyone: Senator Al Franken was the deciding vote in passing Obamacare. Upon completion of his successful theft of the 2008 election recount, he became the 60th vote in the US Senate giving Democrats the ability to break a GOP filibuster on this disastrous law.

Dear Liberals, I Feel Your Pain

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

This is how conservatives felt late 2005 and into 2006.

When even your side sees the ponzi scheme known as Obamacare and the influence of special interests over your policies, you’re failing.

As the Obama admin unravels, hopefully the masses of people dragged to the polls to elect this boob will realize there is no free lunch, that socialism sucks, and make a wise choice come 2014.

#makeDClisten No Training Included In Daytoncare – Killing Obamacare Is The Only Way To Protect Americans

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

What happens when a single party is allowed to exercise its ideology with out criticism, examination, or media scrutiny? Its called Obamacare and its crazy uncle Daytoncare (MNSure).

On October 1st, every Minnesotan will be required to participate in the Minnesota Health Insurance Exchange that was mandated by Obamacare. What is the exchange and how will it affect the millions of existing contracts Minnesotans have with insurance providers is unclear just a week out from the launch.

What should really scare all Minnesotans is this from the Pioneer Press:

A week before the launch of Minnesota’s health exchange, no insurance agents, county workers or “navigators” have been fully trained and certified to help consumers enroll in coverage through the new system, state officials told legislators Tuesday.

In a week 6 million Minnesotans need to know just what the law passed thanks to Al Franken’s stolen election means to them and their family. Hundreds of thousands of employers have to know what this means to their business. Thousands of state and county employees are being forced to impliment the Federal mandate, yet none of them have even received information or training as to explain what Minnesotans can expect.

A lot of Republican strategists are scared of taking a bold stand and “risking” a shutdown over defunding Obamacare, but the fact is no one knows what Obamacare really is. Heck, Nancy Pelosi said the only way to know what was in the bill was to pass it. Three years later, even the bureaucrats tasked with carrying out the Federal mandate don’t know what was in the bill.

Well the law is supposed to be enacted in a week and no one knows what the law really does or what it means. No one has yet been trained to explain to Americans what it means to American families.

Not stopping Obamacare’s unknown affects on Americans’ health care is immoral, unAmerican, and unDemocratic.

Repeal the provision in Obamacare that allows for the Obama appointed Secretary of Health & Human Services to grant a waiver to groups or businesses and force mandate every single state, federal, county, and municipal employee to participate in the same laws that other Americans will be forced to.

If Obamacare is so dang good, then every single American should be mandated to participate. No one should be excluded. No one should be granted a waiver. And no one should be forced to participate in a government policy that no one has been trained to even explain to citizens.

Common sense says this was a mistake. Logic says this is insanity and political marksmanship and overreach. Honesty says this was the mother of all political mistakes ever made in Washington and something that at the very least needs more time to be examined and tested.

To allow Obamacare to be implemented at this point, with no proof of readiness, benefits, or affordability is grounds for recall, impeachment, and a psych eval for anyone unwilling to be honest and admit that its one of the biggest hoaxes ever perpetrated on the American people.

Daytoncare Has Its 1st Major Security Failure

Friday, September 13th, 2013

Obamacare will go down in history as the worst piece of legislation ever. It was due to the ability of President Obama and Congressional Democrats to railroad the law through Congress with their 60th vote Al Franken that there was never any scrutiny, debate, or vetting of the practicality of the law. The same Government that can’t figure out how to maintain a transportation network, or realize the usefulness of the post office is somehow going to ‘fix” health insurance?

Well, in Minnesota progressives purchased similar majorities and the Governor’s office in 2012 and they not only agreed to rush a Minnesota exchange into place, they raised the bar on mandates and government intervention. That’s why I call the MNSure (Obamacare mandates state run exchange as opposed to Federal takeover) = Daytoncare.

He demanded it. He rushed it into place. He could have bothered reading this bill and realized that it was ripe with problems and shortcomings. But he doesn’t seem to read a lot of the bills he signs into law, so Minnesota citizens are now subject to human error that could expose their financial and private information to identity theft.

Republicans have warned about the chance for this, and here in Minnesota, we have our first case. 

An employee for the state’s new online health insurance exchange accidentally released confidential information on hundreds of insurance agents.

According to the Star Tribune, MNsure officials say the employee sent an email to an Apple Valley insurance broker’s office Thursday that contained Social Security numbers, addresses and other private information of more than 2,400 insurance agents.

An MNsure security manager called the insurance broker, Jim Koester, and had him delete the file from his computer hard drive. Koester tells the Star Tribune the incident raises questions about the security of MNsure client information.

Users of the exchange will need to provide confidential information to a federal hub where eligibility for public health programs or tax credits will be reviewed.

You hear ever week about how some government or financial network is breached and private data is stolen. We also have the news this week in Minnesota that other state databases are being abused and private information of Minnesotans is being misused by state workers.

Everything that an identity thief needs to destroy someone’s life is neatly packaged in a single database that was raced into operation with out any predecessors to at least improve upon. October 1st is the deadline for insurance companies to inform their existing customers about changes to their existing plans and the new rates. But here we are, 2 weeks from that deadline, and it seems that most insurance companies still don’t really know how the new health care mandates are really going to affect their operations.

If a private company was doing something like Daytoncare to their members or customers, Attorney General Lori Swanson would be slapping lawsuits on them and the local media would have choppers hovering over the Capital.

The Other September 11th We Must Never Forget

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

The Obama administration has blood on its hands over the Benghazzi attacks. Don’t forget that the same people demanding we bomb Syria today, did nothing when American lives were at risk. What’s worse is that they tried to blame the deaths on an American who made a stupid video on the internet rather than accept responsibility and admit the truth.

They did nothing when Americans were under attack in that Embassy. Ever since September 11, 2012, they have done what ever they could to cover up the facts that show how inept and derelict they are.

While I normally repost my Never Forget on this day, I chose to post this little video of the lady who was responsible for the security of the American lives lost. They were under her watch and supervision and died on the job. She’s a power hungry career politician who will do and say whatever she has to to achieve power for her egomaniacal quest to change America into a socialist utopia.

Democrats used to be upset at Republicans for remembering what happened in New York, Pennsylvania, and to the Pentagon in 2001. They would accuse us of politicizing it, and replaying the video of the Towers falling to drum up the public support for wars that they opposed. But now they are the ones waving flags trying to ramp up the Patriotism to support a war with no calculable benefit for America.

You see, I’m tired of people who used to slam Bush and Republicans for being war mongers waging those same wars, starting new ones, spying on Americans, and fucking up the world and America in their little quest to play Sim City with America. Like Foreign Policy is a burden when they really just want to control us little ants in the farm.

The Obama administration has spent more time and resources trying to undermine the American people, to divide and conquer us, in his (and don’t forget Hillary’s) quest to have a chicken in every pot. They are waging a political war on American soil trying to fundamentally transform the once greatest nation in the world, into a centrally planned bureaucratic nightmare where freedom, liberty, and personal responsibility are illegal. They didn’t start it, its been going on for decades, but they are the ones finally pulling the trigger on policies designed to undo America’s exceptionalism.

Where is Dennis Kucinich when you need him to introduce an impeachment bill on Obama?

He’s waging wars and getting people killed around the globe all to distract us from the progressive domestic agenda to destroy this country.

I’m sick of seeing Obama’s face everywhere. I’m sick of him politicizing everything to suit his unAmerican agenda. I’m sure by the weekend he will be speaking to a crowd of political drones with that with the usual rhythmic cadence that sways emotions instead of logic and reason, not to mention that goll darn pesky obstacle known as the Constitution. He’ll be blaming Republicans for something, making them the bad guy for his policies failing, or beating them up over some issue to mislead the American public in to supporting policies that are bad for them. And if the polls are really against him, he’ll probably go back to having someone faint in the front of the crowd at each and every rally.

An example would be “immigration reform”. Good reform to Obama is to just allow citizens from other countries to magically become American citizens with all of our rights and benefits (aka: Government handouts to make them dependent on Democrat policies). Its a goll darn election tactic folks. These are people that have likely been breaking laws for decades in some instances that we are now being morally challenged to show compassion to because their home country sucks so bad they have no choice but to sneak into America and steal our jobs, entitlements, and educations. Rather than use the power of his Presidency to help Mexico become a place people can find a good job, be safe, education, and such, we’re going to change or ignore our own laws because its compassionate? No it would be compassionate and the right thing to do to help change Mexico for the better. 

Yes, I said Obama has an unAmerican agenda.

May God bless the families of all those who have senselessly lost their lives under Obama and Clinton’s watch, and may God bless the American people that we take elections seriously from now on and never make such a colossal series of mistakes in the voting booths that puts people that really hate the things that made America so great for over 200 years into office.

I’m tired of people being taken seriously who want to legalize theft and criminalize success.

Redistribution of wealth is theft. You don’t have a right to be lazy but still get everything handed to you. Eventually you will run out of other people to tax in order to get your free stuff.

America has no moral authority to pick sides in a civil war where one side is a murderous dictator and the other side is who tried to kill 150,000 Americans 12 years ago. Al Qaeda is the rebels in Syria folks.

Frankly Obama and the Democrats have done more damage to America in the last 5 years than the terrorists did in the last 12. That is something that I will never forget and I hope my fellow Americans wake the fuck up.

We are being manipulated. We are being used to install Marxism in America. These people lie on a daily basis and manipulate the news to suit their deceitful and dangerous agenda.

They lie and people die. But why? So you will surrender another freedom, another choice, and allow them to impose their will on you, your neighbors, and the people who employ you because they don’t think its fair that some people are more successful than others (unless of course they write a big enough check to the campaign.

Fucking commies.

Yes, I am really angry. You should be too. These people are doing everything they accused Bush of doing, but they are doubling down and actually making the world a more dangerous place. Bush destabilized the Middle East, but Obama has set in on fire. Who the hell are the good guys? Everyone kills everyone just because….

I’ve come to realize that our attempts at defeating terror was a mistake. Maybe we shouldn’t have gone into Iraq and Afghanistan. Maybe we could have done things differently, taken a different approach or not at all. Fought the wars differently, or not at all. But what I don’t understand is why we are still fighting Bush’s war when the people who opposed it from the beginning are now in charge of giving the go codes to those drone strikes?

It makes no sense. What the American government is doing under Obama’s administration on our soil to our own people, not abroad, makes no damn sense. Why would they be doing exactly what they opposed for a foreign policy so vehemently after September 11, 2001? What are we or the world to gain by lobbing a few missiles and bombs into Syria? Dare I say, to blow up an Aspirin factory or something? A distraction? Another Cold war to make the American people galvanize around the party in power? Maybe we can get a 3rd term for Obama….

Sure, it could be this is the last chance to establish the perception of us being a serious world power before Russia rebuilds its a Soviet era world alliance. But that ship has sailed folks. We’d better wake the fuck up quick here at home and repeal these progressive laws and environmental bullshit because we have a cruel world coming where countries will be forced to choose between dealing with little old America desperate for fuel, food, and resources or the mighty Putin Axis of evil. We are going to need to be self dependent on resources, food, and fuel or we’re going to be begging from China and Russia. That’s their play in the Middle East. Control of the resources.

Rambling rant as usual, but I’m angry. I’m angry and you should be too. We’re being lied to and manipulated. There’s no logic as to why Obama is doing anything he is. Why Obamacare? Why the domestic spying? Why blame that movie for the murders in Benghazzi? Why bomb Assad? Why is his Treasury reporting $0 added to the national debt when we are running deficits over a hundred billion dollars? Why are federal agents being killed by guns that Obama bought illegally, smuggled to Mexico, and gave to drug cartels? Meanwhile they are trying to take them away from law abiding Americans?

What the fuck is this administration really up to? If you compare their past statements and intentions *if* they get elected, to what they are actually doing, there seems to be a design, a plan. Its not going to happen overnight. It will take quite a while, years, decades, but they will eventually succeed. It took them 50 years to get to the doorstep of socialized medicine. Obamacare isn’t the end goal, its the trojan horse that will destroy the current health care market we have, requiring a total Government take over.

“What difference does it make?” she screams when her incompetence is exposed and people are murdered.  You saw how angry Clinton was when being questioned about Benghazzi. I get that angry every damn time I hear about what Obama is going to do *to* the country I love so much. Not *for* it, but *to* America. His acceptance speak in Chicago on Election night in 2008 still gives me chills (bad ones). Fundamentally transform America….

I believe it is all by design. America is dying the death of a thousand cuts at the hands of its own President with the aid of the Democrat party. The ideas they hold dear for how to run a country are not founded in our Constitution, they are founded in the polices of Marxism. They don’t want to just run the country better than Republicans, they want to rule over the country and its people.

We must remove any politician who supports the policies of progressives from office electorally. Peacefully. We must take our country back from those who clearly hate it. We must educate the public into understanding that free markets, freedom, liberty, and Capitalism is why we have what we have. Marxism first requires the creation of wealth. Why? Because socialism doesn’t allow growth, it levels the playing field equally. Equal misery if you will. Not everyone is going to get to live in a penthouse if we just eliminate the 1%. Nope, the end result of the goal of the Democrats is a crappy life for everyone, but hey, everyone has the saem crappy life so there won’t be any envy. They don’t hate the Red, White, and Blue, but they hate the way we got here and they want to make sure they decide what’s best for you from now on.

So why are we waging wars around the world again when we were lead to believe they were wars of choice by Senators Obama, Clinton, and Kerry?  Wag the dog my friends. Wag the dog.

Freeloader Society – The Attempt To Steal Walmart’s Property For The Collective

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

RF Flashback: Why Walmart?

You may or may not like Walmart, but you have to admire their success. They have taken the American dream and run with it by building the largest employer in the world that offers products people want at a good price.

The neo-socialist left hates Walmart for this success and has been trying for years to unionize their 1.3 million “workers”. Just think of how much union dues can be collected from 1.3 million slaves to the union brass who pull the levers of organized labor.

“Organized labor” is not made up entirely of the people who work for companies. There is a growing imbalance between the people who work exclusively for the union and the people the union represents that supplies the union with its revenue. Unions have staff and their own overhead that get paid for by the union dues that are confiscated from the other members. We really should start calling union dues – union taxes – since it not a voluntary paid fee. Its mandatory and automatically deducted in many cases before the employee ever receives their pay check, just like taxes are.

There’s a common thought among conservatives that if people actually had to mail a check to the IRS every month instead of having their taxes withheld, people would realize just how much the government siphons off the top of their hard work, and reject Democrat politicians and government in general.

The same would be true for unions I believe. If union members had to actually write a check each month for their union dues, they’d realize the return on their investment is not worth it and more importantly, that they could probably find a better way to spend or save “their” money themselves.

The notion of people deciding if they would voluntarily “pay their predetermined fair share” scares the crap out of the Democrats and their pals in Big Labor because they know people, if given free will to decide on their own, would not do it.

And back to Walmart…..

What the left in America wants to do is to steal the accumulated property (aka Walmart’s profits and wealth) and redistribute it, of course not without first taking their percentage off the top, to pay the union brass and bureaucracy, not to forget, or course elect more Democrats.    Big labor is intent on starting something akin to the Communist Revolution in America. Their goal is for the employees of companies to own and control the companies they work for. So instead of the company being designed to provide a product or service people will buy, its merely supposed to supply a person with a “sustainable wage” no matter the impacts of the marketability of what the company makes or sells.

Walmart is so successful because it brings goods to market cheaper than anyone else. But if they no longer have low wages (I promise not to go on a minimum wage rant too), they will have to raise their prices. And if you are givent he choice of paying $8.99 for a case of Coke at Walmart or $8.99 at Target or Cub, which would you do? I know I wouldn’t.

There are 2 ways to be successful in business in a free market. Produce a better product than your competitors. Or produce a lower priced product. Quality and savings will affect consumer choice.

While the word Communist may offend you, the fact that Big Labor is trying to steal ownership stakes in companies is what should really piss you off.

Remember the auto bailouts? Shares of GM & Chrysler were taken away from private individuals who bought them. Those shares were then given to the unions. That’s stealing folks.  Walmart is the golden goose for unions.

Walmart has been very reactive to political pressures. They are huge on Green policies. They mandate environmentally friendly packaging to their suppliers. They are one of if not the largest open space owner in America if memory serves. I heard that for every acre of parking lot, they set aside 2 acres of open space or wetland – or something along those lines. Its a popular tactic in corporate America to engage in activities that people would like to raise the company’s public image.

The amount of money wasted on the pipe dream of environmentalism in America is sickening. But that’s for a different rant.

So why would Big Labor and the socialist left in America want to destroy Walmart when it is doing things – of their own free will mind you – that the left wants everyone to be forced to do?

Because Walmart has accumulated a mountain of wealth, something the left can’t do. You see, the key to Marxism is that first you have to create the wealth before it can be redistributed evenly to the people according to their needs. Welfare is not an economic model. I’ve touched this subject many times as well.

While some may find the desire to get rich as evil, its what makes for a successful economy. You can’t have a successful growing economy if everything is centrally planned.

You see, if you get everything handed to you and don’t have to earn it, you don’t have the drive to go do something productive. Yes, it makes people lazy. People end up discovering its easier to complain to a politician, the media, or a government bureaucrat social worker who will then give them what they want, then it is to go find a job and earn the ability to be self sustainable.

The old Reagan saying about Welfare’s number one goal should be to eliminate the need for it, is a great example of what I mean.

If the socialist left can destroy the biggest company in America, guess what. The rest of the companies will easily cave to their demands too. If the political left in America can force companies to require liberal behavior, they will remove the need to do it through government. I’ve written about this before and explained it better, but let me get back to my inspiration for this particular rant against the big labor lefties.

A planned post-Thanksgiving action largely fizzled due to poor turnout. Many of the protesters at the events were not actually Walmart employees and in some cases were bussed in from outside.  [Source]

Organized labor manipulates the stories by bussing people in to make a contract dispute between a few dozen workers and their employer look like a protest with hundreds of people. You’ve seen the giant Teamsters semi that rolls around the Twin Cities from time to time. That truck probably cost several hundred thousand dollars. That comes out of union member dues. The SEIU has a fleet of purple busses and standing army of professional protesters who can make even the most minuscule situation seem like a full blown crisis. Remember the Wisconsin Capital occupation? Largely people not affected by the policies in Wisconsin, but ‘rent a mob’. They pay people to go protest.

I am very rusty at writing so this is all over the place. Sorry folks. 

Here’s the take away. Be prepared to see protesters at Walmarts today, but remember that there is a very good chance that most of the people waving signs and screaming those rhythmic chants don’t actually work at Walmart and may not even be from Minnesota.  Big labor has gotten very savvy, they have to, because in an honest free market economy they would quickly become unneeded.

Why does it cost $125 to have an electrician come fix a light switch that costs 99 cents?  Same goes for plumbers and a whole host of other service industries. The recent Dayton unionization of daycare providers and personal care attendants is another test case for the theory of mandated union membership raising prices and the key to unions – eliminating the legality of the competition. There will likely be a reduction of choice in daycare along with rising prices.

If you want a better explanation of what I am trying to say here, go watch Idiocracy. That’s what we will look like if we turn into a free loader society.

Wow this post is a rambling roller coaster. But hey, at least I got through the writer’s block. :D

Non-Compostable Waste: Minimum Wage Increase v2.0

Thursday, August 29th, 2013

Gov. Dayton and the DFL failed to pass another economy crippling part of the left wing Neo-Communist agenda last Legislative Session: a $1.3 Billion employer tax increase. But, they aren’t taking it lying down. You are hearing story after story about pushes to pass a massive mandated wage increase in the news.

What you are not hearing about, is the impact on employers and the economy. I wrote about this back in May during the Session.

RF Flashback: Winkler & DFL To Push $1.3 Billion Minimum Wage Tax Hike

Further Proof Of MN Media Bias

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

In 2011/12: Congresswoman Michele Bachmann goes to Iowa, and the Minnesota media instantly declares she’s abandoning her District.

In 2013/14: Senator Amy Klobuchar goes to Iowa, and the Minnesota media gushes over it.

The narrative for the next 2 years to avoid covering Senator Franken and his leftwing agenda will be how great Amy Klobuchar’s hot dish recipe’s are received at Iowa backyard BBQs.

Meanwhile, in Congress, serious problems facing the country are being debated, but the constituents back here in Minnesota are being left out in the dark about what is really happening and the consequences of the Obama administration’s reckless domestic and foreign policies.
