$191,000 for a new dog park. Thank you Mayor Archie. Mpls residents can look for another property tax increase to fund this very important project.

What a great way to spend the money instead of hiring another Police Officer or two. Good Choice!

Poor TrashyLiar, the cost reflects costs doubled as designers grappled with drainage issues.

Why do you insist any monetary issues be run through your cheap *ss opinion mill ? Just buy less "give away" sugar, stupid !!! Or cheaper shoes.... LMAOROTFU~!

Urban hipsters need places for their dog sitters to walk their pets for them.

What do they do in NYC? Do they tear down buildings to build dog parks?

Yes they are. And here is the moral of the story. If the government would stop spending on stupid shiat, leave it alone, and stop trying to make everyone happy and make everything free, the market will eventually fill the niche and provide. And obviously, there is a market in taking care of peoples pets for them. Notice this place is in Edina. Well off folks who want pets and kids, but don't have time for them and are more than willing to pay someone else to care for them.

Once again RT and his minoins in City Hall have come to the rescue of the tax payer of Murderapolis. The Tax payers, not knowing how to spend their hard earned money, now have an avenue in which they can funnel some of that money. Don't worry about those shooting on the near north side, or those robberies on Lake street, we now have a brand new pet park, oh sorry -"off the leash" pet park which you all contributed to. Pet Parks, New Fountains, New Bike lanes, Socialism at it finest. I never thought I would say this, "Go Badgers" :-)

And funding for many of these Dog Parks comes from the clean air and water amendment.

How a dog park results in cleaner air OR water isn't clear.

And what about cats, aren't they being dicriminated against?

1776 has a point, where the hell is the ACLU?? This is terrible injustice to the cat lovers of the world!! Cat Parks need to be a high priority for RT and Company in 2013. Along with Bike lanes in the Skyway for cold/rainy days!!

Just think, when Mayor Archie gets to DC, he can do for America what he has done to Minneapolis.

New Zealand is looking better all the time.

I would be happy to take up a collection for you if you would promise to leave and never come back. That is the single nest possible thing that you can do for your city, your state, and your country. We need immigrants with better moral fiber to take your place.

I am not sure about New Zealand, but I know Australia has socialized medicine, limited but socialized none the less. It is very expensive but I loved it.

Why is it that those that are riding the gravy train can not understand that those that are paying now will not do it forever?

Some things about the 2nd Obama Administration and the next two years in MN under DFL rule:

1. I will pay more taxes.
2. My after tax income will not go down. In fact, it will probably go up.
3. The business will not be as profitable, and we will not be as generous with pay for current employees.
4. There probably will be fewer future employees. We will find ways to automate the business rather than hire additional people.
5. At some point I will decide enough is enough. I will cash in my chips and let someone else worry about how to pay for everything.

This is what will happen. The Leftists that say to raise taxes on the producers really don't have a clue of the impact upon their lives that will be the result.

First, they believe the money come from and is produced by the Government, therefore, they take the Alfred E Neuman approach "What? Me Worry!"
1. You will be more in taxes, regardless of your revenue.
2. You will have to reduce your contributions to your employee benefit package because it could become a liablity.( I am not sure what you offer, but I know we are looking seriously at it. Glad I am under contract)
3. You must automate and reduce your employee workforce. If you don't your margins will slip and your ability to react will be severely hampered.
4. Hang in there, if you are able to maintain a strong cash position, in 4 years you maybe able to expand through Acquisition and find some really good bargins, perhaps in industries unrelated to your current field.
2-1/2 Years left on the current contract and I may have to re-up instead of retire so I can afford my healthcare bill.
