As long as the Choo Choo Train only leads into Minnesota,(Bringing Chi Town Criminals to Welfare la la land in Minneapolis) and does not allow the Fruits and Nuts from The Peoples Republic of Minnesota to come over here and fauch up what the Grown ups in Madison are trying to do, the Choo Choo may be acceptable.

I would propose a customs/TSA station at Hudson. All passports would be checked and any "aliens = Illini/Minnesotans" would not be allowed and would be forced to jump in the St. Croix and swim back to gopherland aka, Demsville.

Tribes don't pay any taxes and have to be squeezed to even pay for the public roads leading to their casinos.

I'd say a State mega casino in Mpls would be a good start. However DFL in charge insist on making Indians super rich and to hell with revenue (taxes).

I have no axe to grind with Indians but they use public roads, hosptials, national defense, fire/PD, sewer/water, electric/NG, etc and they need to belly up to the bar and pay taxes like everyone else.

They are rich enough NOW!!!

Ya and MnDOT's Kent Barnyard keeps saying MnDOT was ahead of the superstorm of the decade even named..

MnDOT is so phocked up it'd be funny if the workers could get to work in less than 2 hours.

Living in Minnesota is a drag!!!!!

The only way that particular auto owner can get away without paying the tax is if he never gets it registerd with the State of Minnesota. He/she cannot legally drive the car off the reservation.

Don't forget how much easier it is to purchase handguns (3 days) and long rifles (same day) without having to get permit to purchase!

IMHO, Wade presents himself as conservative but leans left at times.

Lefties tend to defend Natives when there is NO defense, they get off free living under the USA umbrella paying virtually NOTHING in taxes.
