"I'll have those n*ggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years."
~ Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One
These quotes from Dems are why minority voters are starting to understand how they've been swindled into thinking that the Democratic Party best represents their interests. That's worrisome for Democrats at large. The facts, coming home to roost, will create a major backlash against the Democratic Party.
Remember when a spelling error was spun into Dan Quayle being retarded? Well, don't expect this to happen here. Obama is so smart, according to his fawning media, he just thinks, and spells, differently.
How, in this day and age, could a police department could be so inadequately prepared for such a foreseeable incident?
The failure to protect included a 40 minute delay in warning students of a shooter on campus, and then aggravating the situation by issuing the alert in confusing police jargon "Shelter in Place".
Should someone be fired or demoted over blunders that could have resulted in lost lives?
The university sent out an email and phone text alert to students and employees just before 8 a.m. — after the arrests — advising them to “shelter in place.” By 8:25 an “all clear” was issued, and Duluth police said the campus was safe.
Open for less than 8 month in the off-election-year of 2013, the PAC raised an impressive $454,223.12, but spent all but $5,539.79 of that total, according to records on file at the state’s Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board.
Is the U.S. economy steamrolling toward another recession? Will 2014 turn out to be a major "turning point" when we look back on it? Before we get to the evidence, it is important to note that there are many economists that believe that the United States never actually got out of the last recession. For example, data compiled by John Williams of shadowstats.com show that the U.S. economy has continually been in recession since 2005.
The Senate Judiciary Committee defeated an amendment by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. Titled “Intentional Discrimination by Employees of the Internal Revenue Service,” the measure stated:
“(a) Offense. — It shall be unlawful for any officer of the Internal Revenue Service to, regardless of whether the officer or employee is acting under the color of law, willfully act with the intent to injure, oppress, threaten, intimidate or single out and subject to undue scrutiny for purposes of harassment any person or organization of any state –
“(1) based solely or primarily on the political, economic or social positions held or expressed by the person or organization; or
“2) because the person or organization has expressed a particular political, economic, or social position using any words of writing allowed by law.”
Of course former DFL Duluth City CLOWNcilor Danny 'Boy' Hartman is going to support UMD's Linda Krug run for the MN House 7a seat even though Krug hasn't even served one term on the CLOWNcil. Krug was "very supportive" of Hartman's receiving the director's job at UMD's Historic Glensheen Estate.
But...you have to wonder how enthused Ness is now with Krug after after Krug's miserable failure to help Ness keep radical UWS prof. Joel 'Banned by the Secret Service' Sipress off of the CLOWNcil.
Welcome to the new era of zero self-sacrifice or gallantry. It reminds me of an episode of "Game of Thrones" where the mother of "King" Robb Stark says unless her son is spared, she will cut the throat of Walder Frey's wife, to which he responds, "I'll just get another..."
Is being a 'Baby Daddy' any different? Apparently not.
We hear it all the time: "America is patriarchal!", "American women are oppressed!". Well, a lifelong feminist and former National Organization for Women member, Tammy Bruce, is tired of hearing it--and she has a solution laid out in our newest video: Feminism 2.0. One that tells women that they should be proud to act feminine. One that tells them that simply copying men and masculine traits is actually demeaning to women. One that honors all responsible choices, including becoming a wife and mother.
Liberals are right: there is a difference in caring that shows up along party lines. Conservatives give more, a lot more. They aren’t content with good-hearted wishes, they do good deeds, turning wishes into actions. Conservatives are ten times more personally charitable, even to secular causes. They do far more volunteer work. They even give more blood. Conservatives do more to help the poor, the sick, minorities, the environment. People who want small government give an average of $1600 a year versus a measly $140 given by redistributionists. It’s not because conservatives are richer; the opposite is true.
Why, they won last time didn't they? I think their fear indicates that they had to call in a lot of markers to allow the fraud leading up to victory in those votes. And such enormous fraud requires extensive financial backing (Soros?).
This is why buffoons like Rep Bakk want to take the decision away from YOU, and give it to himself.
One friend says 10 wealthy people have told him they are leaving and another says disgusted New Yorkers bought $1 billion in residential property in Florida since the November election. The Sunshine State confers an automatic tax cut of about 12 percent because it has no city or state income tax, nor does it have an inheritance tax.
Beyond taxes, the mayor’s open hostility is a factor. His insulting treatment of former Mayor Bloomberg at the inauguration remains a cloud over him. As one affluent woman, a self-described liberal, told me, “De Blasio hates me, so I hate him.” She doesn’t personally know him, but draws her conclusion from his words and deeds.
The letter to the editor (LTE) and the LTE this Common Libtard is referring to are included for your viewing.
This Libtard first blames the Tea Party from out of left field as there was no reference in the letter he is referring to, then biasedly blames Republicans "for all our problems", without any creditable sources.
Oh how life in the eutopian land of Libtardia is shaking as the American workforce is at a 50 year low and Democrat Lyndon Johnson's Great Society is crumbling.
GMN Producer Guerilla Girl Ashley contacted Connecticut State Police to inquire about the recent letter sent to residents regarding gun confiscation in Connecticut. "Sandy Hook" State Police Spokesman Lt. Vance answered the telephone and spoke to Ashley. The recording of the call reveals the shocking disregard this sworn peace officer has for the U.S. Constitution, and even goes so far as to call Ashley "un-American" for inquiring about the constitutionality of the gun confiscation law.
In Lt. Vance's own words, "...I am the master...."
The real question is if you want to have armed criminals in your bar, or armed guards who happen to be former Police officers.
It appears that the Mayor and City Clowncil's love of importing inner city criminals may make it a requirement to protect oneself with a gun.
State income tax: 5.35% - 7.85%
State sales tax: 6.875%
Mean property tax rate as a percentage of mean home value: 1.09%

The North Star State where ice hockey reigns and moose roam free gives retired residents a chilly reception.
Minnesota imposes a hefty personal income tax, sale tax (though food, clothing and medication is exempt) and property tax. It also taxes retirement income, including Social Security benefits and pensions, and wants a piece of your estate.
The state does offer a break to those 65 and older with household incomes of $60,000 or less, with a property tax deferral program that limits the amount of property tax they pay to 3 percent of total household income.
Detroit’s bankruptcy is about numbers: a 26 percent drop in population since 2000, 78,000 abandoned properties, $10 billion in underfunded pension and health care obligations for public employees and billions more in bond and other debt that make it impossible to pay for adequate city services.
Wisconsin's public employees in unions make 7.8 percent more in salary than their non-union colleagues and 7.9 percent more when benefits are included. This is referred to as a "union premium." Wisconsin's premium is greater than the national average of 6.8 percent and 7.4 percent respectively.
The average unionized public employee makes $35.43 an hour in wages and benefits, for an annual total compensation of $73,611. A non-unionized public employee makes $32.80 an hour, or $68,224 per year. That is a difference of $5,387 per employee.
Union membership is down but Big Labor bosses’ profits are up. More than 400 labor chiefs pocketed at least $250,000 each last year, even as their collective ranks fell by 400,000 members. They say they are fighting for the working class. Not quite. We did the math…
"The well-known co-owner of popular businesses such as Fitger's Brewhouse and Burrito Union has been at UMD since 1989. However, after months of questions and an investigation - has been let go."
The violations included the following:
• "Violation of the Regent's Policy on Outside Consulting and Other Commitments and the Administrative Policy on Outside Consulting and Other Commitments.""
• "Violations of the Regent's Policy of Nepotism and Personal Relationships and Administrative Policy on Managing Nepotism and Personal relationships."
• "Untruthfulness during and Office of Equal Opportunity investigation."
• "Violation of the Administrative Policy on Acceptable Use of Information Technology Resources."
• Inappropriate sexual conduct with a UMD student on University premises, and during work hours."
I am writing this to highlight the disconnect the majority of government workers have with those in the private sector. Is it too much to ask that government employees’ benefits be more in line with those in the private sector? Is it possible the attitude of “I’ve got mine” is so prevalent throughout this class of workers that they just don’t care?
Libtards don't get confused with facts. Libtards keep voting DFL for more taxes and fees so their government union buddies can keep living high off the hog AND support fellow Libtard No Jobs Nolan and his gang of anti-mining enviro-radical extremists.
This is why Marx Dayton and the DFL henchmen are gutting middle class incomes more with all of the DFL's 2013 tax increases. Expect the income migration out of Minnesota to gain greater momentum as the DFL desperately attempts to keep all of the government union folk and retirees happy...at the expense of those left behind.
Don't believe the happy talk coming out of the White House, Federal Reserve and Treasury Department when it comes to the real unemployment rate and the true “Misery Index.” Because, according to an influential Wall Street advisor, the figures are a fraud.
Excerpted from Zero Hedge: While what little remains of America’s middle class is happy and eager to put in its 9-to-5 each-and-every day, an increasing number of Americans – those record 91.5 million who are no longer part of the labor force – are perfectly happy to benefit from the ever more generous hand outs of the welfare state. Prepare yourself before listening to this… calling on her self-admitted Obamaphone, Texas welfare recipient Lucy, 32, explains why “taxpayers are the fools”…
The DFLX received a new production from an email tipster. Apparently DFL Duluth's 'Clean and Safe' crew do not go behind the Historic Norshor. OccuFAIL Duluth has been known to loiter in the neighborhood at the crumbling but Historic Kozy Bar property.
Many presumed high school graduates I've encountered at a local community college seem incapable of speaking simple English despite twelve years of schooling that culminated in a diploma. Beyond the embarrassing inability to contemplate meaningful thoughts expressed in coherent conversation, these students and many of their contemporaries seem to believe it acceptable to use variations of the F-word as noun, verb, adjective, and adverb.
While wringing their hands over America’s student-loan crisis — a $1-trillion debt bubble resembling the 2008 mortgage meltdown — federal officials ought to look in the mirror. Washington started the mess and enables it to worsen.
"If we are lending money that ostensibly we don't have to kids who have no hope of making it back in order to train them for jobs that clearly don't exist, I might suggest that we've gone around the bend a little bit," says TV personality Mike Rowe, best known as the longtime host of Discovery Channel's Dirty Jobs.
"There is a real disconnect in the way that we educate vis-a-vis the opportunities that are available. You have - right now - about 3 million jobs that can't be filled," he says, talking about openings in traditional trades ranging from construction to welding to plumbing. "Jobs that typically parents' don't sit down with their kids and say, 'Look, if all goes well, this is what you are going to do.'"
The first 477 DFL Duluth public schools administrators and teachers take over $100,000 per year in salary and benefits. Not bad for 8 months of showing up. Click on the title above and see for yourself.
Do you get a $40,000 benefit package and taxpayer backed against losses retirement fund? How about additional pay to cover your medical deductible that can even be carried forward as deferred compensation? DFL Duluth Federation of Teachers members do thanks to their union backed school board members.
Reviewing the public records, DFL Duluth's superintendent appears to have much less education that the other top 25 paid superintendents in MN presented in this link.
DFL Duluth Schools current 'leader' had very little superintendent experience, serving only 2 years and an assistant superintendent. Yet the DFL Duluth union run screwal board is paying the second highest salary in the state of MN.
With screwal board decisions like this, is it any wonder why ISD709 has big money problems?
Publically stating that Congressman Rick 'No Jobs' Nolan would be commendable to lie the NESS way - PRICELESS!
"Truly, if Nolan was going to lie on the campaign trail to get elected, he should have lied to the dirty mining interests and then joined those intent on protecting Minnesota lakes and rivers — not the other way around. That would have been commendable." Nathan J Ness (Duluth News Tribune - December 27, 2013)
In Creger's unfair and unbalanced world it's not the news that counts, just his agenda and opinion. Why should slugs like this write about what the opponents had to say when you can assassinate their character with this biased agenda driven horseshit?
May be this DFL Libtard Presstitute Saul Alinsky disciple should disclose his old lady in an ultra-liberal prof at UMD and are deep in the leftist Kool-Aid.
WDIO did a balanced informative news story (see here) unlike Creger's fully exposed bias in the Duluth News Tribune.
Most people do not realize the extent to which unions dominate special interest spending on elections. When you talk about special interests, it is hardly worth mentioning any other than unions. This chart, from Open Secrets, shows the fifteen largest contributors to federal campaigns during the period 1989-2012. Ten of the fifteen are unions.
Unions have chosen to turn themselves into an arm of the Democratic Party rather than represent their members.
An eyewitness report of how an election was stolen.
I am a proud Democrat and Latino with a wonderful wife and dog. I was raised in a religious, blue-collar, Midwestern Democratic union home. My dad UAW, my mom CWA.
In 2008, I worked for President Obama and the DNC in 2008 as 1 of 10 of their DNC-AAO International Regional Field Directors/Consultants. My area was Latin America & Mexico. I was also President of Democrats Abroad Mexico City & Executive Board Member of Democrats Abroad Mexico & Democrats Abroad Latin America.
