Hope they didn't use zip code to sort their cities. Half of Woodbury is considered StPaul by many zip code databases. That could've mixed up the results. Just wondering.

Not a surprise. There are more dems in St Paul and dems tend to love spending, even if they don't have the money to do it. When their credit cards are maxed out, they will blame the credit card companies and demand more government regulation. They will also demand that the rich get taxed more to help them get what they want. Now that Obama is in office, the american people are finally catching on to these facts that I just pointed out.

Yeah, and Murderapolitans are also afraid to go out at night cause they might get robbed, beaten and stabbed/shot.

Does this mean that St Paulites have more fun? Please tell the Minnesotans to stop vacationing here in South Florida. They drive around here with tire chains and they wear parkas....when it is 75 degrees here. The last time we had snow was in 1977. Please tell them to check the www.sunsentinel.com website for weather in Fort Lauderdale before visiting.

Thanks

Yep, for any significant purchases...I get the hell out of Hennepin county.

BTW: The value of my house decreased but the property taxes went up. For god sakes, when will the voters achieve awareness and throw all incumbents out of office?

Is this purely from a dollar perspective, or a percentage of income. Also, there's more poor people in Minneapolis.

St Paul has more government employees. They're the only ones with disposable income, stolen from your kid's dinner plate.

One reason could be that Minneapolis and Hennepin County have extra sales tax to pay for the Twin's stadium and Minneapolis still has the sale tax set up to pay for the dome.

Its simple really. St. Paul has beauty, the Wild, good bars, little to no violence, and overall is a trendy, classy city. Murderapolis is the ghetto. Nobody in the ghetto has money to visit nice restaurants, they just go to the Somali grocery stores, kill the owners, and take what they want and cook it over a burning barrel.

Your location lists you as being from Chicago. How do Minnesota politicians increase your property taxes in Chicago?

Those locations are not always accurate, it depends on the ISP.

Is this why our Affirmative Action President bailed out the financial industry? So they could snoop into our buying patterns and publicly disclose them on a macro scale? Where's the propriety in these people? If nothing else, this is a very good reason to abandon Citi Bank and seek out a nice discrete credit union.
