There are no new improved transportation connections between the Downtown East neighborhood and the rest of downtown or the River. Itís basically a new, modern rendition of the Metrodome: an over-sized, unquestionably ugly spaceship that adds nothing to the built environment.

There really isnít much here that will act as an improvement in the urban design department, and it is hard to see how a building like this will promote additional development. Who would want to live by a monolithic, mega church of a building that only occasionally pays homage to the cultural Gods of Football. Itíll be empty 95% of the time and chaotic the other 5%.

All these taxes should have gone through and went to the poor and educations who need it sports are for cowboy rethuglicans

Your Governor, Dayton, Your Mayor's Coleman and R(aise)T(axes) Rybak were the leaders in giving away millions of tax payers money to keep the multi-millionaire Ziggy in Minneapolis. Your Bitch is with those spend and tax, welfare gods in the DFL. Blame them for pissing on the poor! OH, but your labor unions now have jobs! Quit bitching!

When I looked at the vote, it was pretty even, but you do simply lie, right senile guy.

Though Republicans hold a majority in the House, it was a relatively easy 73-to-58 approval in the House.

The primary failure was the citizens of Mn for not screaming long and loud about this blatant form of corporate welfare and the end run around the law requiring a referendum before raising taxes.

The other primary failure was the politicians who were bought and paid for in this boondoggle.

The secondary failure was the pull tab proposal which has already failed to bring in no where near as much as predicted.

It's likely that the next primary failure in this mess will be the tapping of the general fund due to "cost overruns" in the construction process.
Yet another failure is the number of temporary jobs that will vanish once the stadium is completed and the number of low paying, part time, no benefit, minimum wage jobs that will be left behind in the wake.

Another BILLION DOLLAR BOONDOGGLE.

Gov GoogleyEyes and the DFL majority only operate on multiples of a billion dollars.

Next up: Another billion dollar choo-choo train for the SW Corridor that will ride empty just like the ones do now.

After that: Another billion dollar choo-choo train that will ride empty to Duluth and back.

Do you think we might be able to incorporate some bike paths in with each of the choo-choo train routes? That would be a nice touch, wouldn't it?

The really sad part is the number of people who were conned by these effing carnies. But when you see the dorks at the unveiling in their moronic outfits, it all kind of makes sense.
