This is the Leftist's utopia.

Don't worry how to pay for all the choo-choo trains. If we force them to live in their little government authorized apartments and make them take public transit to their government authorized jobs, they will be happy eventually.

Control all the dumb masses. It is for their own good.

Question: How much do Minnesotans pay each year to
subsidize public transit?

Answer: About two-thirds of the transit budget comes from the Motor Vehicle Sales Tax and
State general fund revenues. For every $1 collected in fares, taxpayers kick in $2 in
subsidies. The total amount is escalating rapidly, nearing about $200 million a year in
subsidies to cover operating costs.

A low information voter just said "We pay for transit..."

We sure as hell do pay for it. Too bad those that use it don't pay "their fair share".

Factual information on tax payer subsidization of public transit is rhetoric? Maybe you think the truth has a conservative bias? Good to see you are resorting to name calling, but if anyone does it to you make sure you call them childish.

P.S. Why would anyone blame a mirror? You are right, blaming a mirror would be moronic.

Can't wait for the CC to complete. All the north south side roads crossing Uni will be shut down because of the railyard.

35E will be the only road into St Paul from north unless you are east of 35E. PLUS DT St Paul will be all phocked up with stupid arse rail cars locking up traffic.

New entertainment coming...

RT is talking about a nice sand beach in DT Mpls.

Now make that a clothing optional beach and he'd have something. Beaches in Europe are natural, of course only the ones that shouldn't go natural are the ones that do. So they are kind of an eyesore.
