The Cynical Political Transit Ploy Of Kurt Daudt
by Dave Mindeman

The Met Council has a proposal to try and get the state portion of SWLRT funding by adding to the metro share of the package. It is not a sure thing because it requires commitments from three different groups involved with area transportation.

But if it is approved, it has been accepted as a state funding source by the Federal government, which would release the Federal funds to make the project work.

So, the project has a chance to go ahead despite all the Republican opposition that has plagued transit for a long . . .

Americans For Prosperity Sent Me Disappointing Information
by Dave Mindeman

I have a bone to pick with Americans For Prosperity regarding this mailing I got....


First of all, I am very disappointed about this tax hike. It says that our Senator gave "us" a tax hike. As I have been told, that tax hike only applied to the top 2% of Minnesotans.

by Dave Mindeman

As long as we are doing Clinton "scandals", let's take on another one. This time we are getting attacks on Bill for getting paid $17 million for being an "honorary" Chancellor for Laureate Universities - a for profit education institution which operates University programs all over the world with 5 entities in the US - including Walden University (a MN based school).

Sometimes A Charity Really Is Just A Charity
by Dave Mindeman

Here we go again. Another attack on what the Clintons do. This time it is the Clinton Foundation and this idea that donors could "play for pay" access to the Secretary of State.

I want to quote part of the AP article that is in question:

"More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money - either personally or through companies or groups - to the Clinton Foundation.
