Good, Bad, Fugly!

1 post / 0 new

I just joined, first post!

I don't know if anyone has heard this yet but here in Minnesota we have a 1 term GOP State Rep named John Kriesel, whom a liberal such as myself have regarded as as honorable a person from either party to have held an elected seat. I have often disagreed with his votes but I have never once believed he didn't put State first in his own min . He has possibly been the only Gop'r in the last 2 years that was brave enough to buck the status quo of Reublican politics in this state....

He is also a decorated war hero that left his wife, children and both of his legs serving in Iraq in 1996.

Mary Kiffmeyer, long time ALEC member and GOP HACK recently called this young Statesman a coward, What she really said was he has" NO COURAGE" that he couldn't win a second term because of his support for the new Vikings Stadium (which I also disagreed with him on, but for other reasons).

Rep Kriesel 2 months ago said he won't seek a second term stating family reasons. Methinks he discovered what Republican politics really is and that my friends is about as ugly as it gets....

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
