The utter clown, Dayton, who plops his sack of Daytonian Gilded Age Largesse upon the Minnesotan table, with feebility, and without even the grace of accomplishment of a Lindbergh, Hill, or Hamm, but more with the retributory ghostliness of a Kid Cann, must need feel that he should go down with his ship, and take the rest of Minnesota with him.

Oh what the people suffer when the Line of Royalty peters out.

Seems like government has even higher expenses in tough times - unemployment compensation, welfare, medical assistance, retraining programs, ... Difficult to see how the state can tighten its belt with these additional costs.

What more can be expected from a state that put a disgusting clown like Franklinstein in the US SENATE?

No. You are are extreme. Your stance on social issues are extreme, your unwillingness to copromise extreme, your blind following of Tony Sutten extreme. Less than 1/3 of Minnesotans agree with your cult-like adherance to the horrible Republican budget cuts. If you want to be leaders, convince Amy Koch and Kurt Zellers to compromise on a balanced budget. It's what Minnesotans want. Please leave extreme behind for leadership -- true leadership includes compromise.

Catch phrases 2011 Democrat Talking Points Memo......

extremist, dangerous, destructive, not minnesotan, anti middle class.

There is nothing extreme in the unbalanced budget, over taxing the productive, 14 trillion dollar debt, devalued dollar, bloated government, uncontrolled entitlement programs, subsidized mass transit, unelected Met Council, Czars, 30% failure rate in government schools, oppressive laws, rampant lawsuits, bankrupt businesses,......No need to go on.

Sadly, the Leftist/Collectivist sheeple say "Ya, extreme Mark", please stop them from affecting Me, Me, Me!

Hey Google Eyes, the "extremist" Repubs are just responsibly trying to resolve an extreme problem: Democrat spending.

The extremists are the nanny statists who would vote for an alcoholic, depresssion-wracked, psychotropic-dependent mental defective to lead the state because they know he wants to give them stuff paid for by someone else and to allow Bruce to marry Steve.

Those who set out to stop him are the normals in this society.

QUIZ: Who said it — Democrat leaders or Communist Party USA?





TAKE THE QUIZ — Which quotes come from Democrats, and which from CPUSA?(scroll down for answers)

1.“This is the moment when we must build on the wealth that open markets have created, and share its benefits more equitably. Trade has been a cornerstone of our growth and global development. But we will not be able to sustain this growth if it favors the few, and not the many.”

2.“Rebuilding the social infrastructure will generate 11 million jobs. At least 3 million could be at work within 6 months — if the funds were available from Congress.”

3.“Moving toward a productive green economy must be based on federal financing and a national industrial policy.“

4.“Only government can break the vicious cycles that are crippling our economy — where a lack of spending leads to lost jobs which leads to even less spending.”

5.“For nearly half a century the nation’s working people embraced and took comfort in the American dream — a dream whose promissory note read that if you work hard and do the right things, a good and secure life is attainable. I wouldn’t say that dream is dead, but more and more people have less and less hope that it is within reach. Forces beyond their control have snatched it from them.”

——— ANSWERS

1. Obama said this during a speech in Berlin on July 24, 2008. Presumably, Europe’s democratic socialists responded with a hearty,“Jawohl!”

2. Excerpted from the Communist Party USA’s “21st Century Jobs Program,” which aims to create 22 million jobs through direct government spending of $1 trillion per year on public services, including a five-year plan for rebuilding infrastructure. Communists advocating a five-year plan — what could possibly go wrong?

3. Excerpted from the Communist Party USA’s “21st Century Jobs Program,” although with Obama’s focus on government subsidy for green jobs and weatherization, we don’t blame you if you got this one wrong.

4. Obama said this on Jan. 8, 2009 while advocating for what would eventually become the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, also known as the "stimulus", or the Democrats’ belated Valentine’s Day gift to themselves.

5. Excerpted from remarks made by CPUSA Chairman Sam Webb at the recent national convention. Mr. Webb would have us know that while the American dream is fading, the Soviet dream remains as strong as ever.

Our Greatest Threat - In Hillarys Own Words
Here is my op-ed that appeared on HumanEventsOnline.com .

http://www.humaneventsonline.com/article.php...

"These people are our enemies! They are trying to destroy us!"

These were the words spoken by Hillary Clinton in 1993, just months after Islamic terrorists tried to kill thousands of Americans by setting off a massive truck bomb underneath the World Trade Center.However, First Lady Hillary was speaking of a different group of people she deemed highly offensive. She was talking about Republicans. She was very upset when she found out a group of Republicans had been invited to the White House.

During this same time period, Hillary said, "I believe in evil and I think that there are evil people in the world." Once again, she was NOT talking about terrorists. This time she was referring to Washington politicians, mostly Republicans, who were opposed to her plans to reform health care.

"instill solid family"...all you need to know: code for 'we know how you should live your life - we hold the moral key'. That's extremist as is their dangerous we don't compromise attitude. As was seen in upstate NY, so-called 'mandates' don't last very long when you propose bad public policy.

Dayton is a flamimg idiot. he just doesn't get it. More money into a dysfunctional system does nothing. I really wouldn't care if they shut the state gov down for a month. My only concern is the nitwits would then give the state workers "Back Pay".

Fred, unemployment comes from unemployment insurance taxes, the state has nothing to do with them, except deficit spending when they authorize 3 years of unemployment benefits instead of 6 months the program was designed for.

Dayton is the Minnesota version of Mr Obama....an empty suit controlled by the Democrat Power Brokers.

By any measure, neither man would make a good ditch digger, let alone a leader of a state or nation.

It is sad that the Sheeple are so ignorant and easily manipulated....I blame the Government Schools for this ignorance.

Ehh, no, it is extremist to force the Gay lifestyle down everyone else's throat. Since when is imposing the morality of 3% of the population down 97% of the populations throat reasonable? Only a mentally ill person would think that it's okay to do so.
