Minnesota is not being represented at the state level

As a citizen of Minnesota I am appalled by what my GOP controlled state representatives are doing. They are not focusing on jobs and remain focused on social issues.

First, they are trying to disenfranchise voters by passing a voter ID law. For more on that go to: http://www.mnprogressiveproject.com/diary/11103/voter-id-amendment-these-are-not-unintended-consequences

What a bunch of babies or bullies, take your pick! - they can't get their way so they are going to investigate the Judge - please, give me a break -

Which is the Bigger Sales 'Flop'? The 'Vette or the Volt?

In case you haven't heard, GM is temporarily suspending production of the Volt at its Detroit-Hamtramck plant for five weeks. The reason given is to adjust production to demand, which, frankly hasn't been burning any barns since its launch in December 2010. Of course, that news elicited at least one pundit calling the car a "flop." But is it really? Not if history or even current sales is any measure.

EPA closure

Mojave Generating Station in Laughlin, NV was a coal-fired electric generation plant which used to be owned by Southern California Edison and employed some 700 people for over 30 years. It was closed in 2005 because it was too expensive to bring the plant up to EPA code. FYI

More Wars?

Lets be clear, if it was up to Senator McCain and Mr Gingrinch, we would currently:

Still be in Iraq in large numbers,

Be increasing rather than withdrawing troops in Afghanistan,

Have "boots on the ground" in Libya,

Be at war in Iran,

Be at war in Syria.

But Ed Schultz was out of line to call Sen. McCain a "warmonger"? Anyone who accepts his advice about a war ought to ask just what he learned from Viet Nam. His book suggests that he "learned" that we just need to drop enough bombs.

I love my old Chevrolets especially 70s pickups, I have owned high-performance Chevrolets as well.

Netanyahu's Nonsense

Benjamin Netanyahu's March, 2012 AIPAC speech was a tortured, twisted exercise in historical revisionism; convoluted at its core rationale of a demon Iran, sinisterly obsessed with killing and terrorizing Jews, Americans and freedom lovers everywhere. His American Zionist audience loved him, demonstrating it through their thunderous applause at several points during the speech.

So why did the media ignore him?
