hey may as well move the Welfare office into Union too. All that money used to renovate Union will have been wasted after the loafers trash the place.

So the government spent $243 million dollars to rebuild this Taj Mahal so that people could hop a bus to Chicago and pay $1 (yes, one dollar) for the bus ticket.

Sounds like the DFL powers in the City of St Paul made a good investment of your tax dollars. NOT!

Hey Irish your a fool. It doesn't cost a dollar. Man your dumb! And if it did your never gonna ride to Chicago so what are you complaining about? Are you known as a big baby everywhere ?? And aloha you sure have a lot if hate in your self. But you seem like the type of person that goes to church every Sunday them Monday thru Saturday back being hateful . What a phoney!!!!
Take a chill pill there Carlo. The fool is you since you make statements without having any knowledge of what you are talking about.

The pricing for the Megabus is a variable price based on demand and how far ahead you book your ticket. And it does cost as little as #1.

Next, why are you so hateful of others?

Did you get kicked out of your Anger Management classes again? Or is it just that nasty Napoleon complex bubbling to the surface again? Supposedly, the medications were supposed to control that for you.

Ignore Bob-O-Many Irish - he is just trying to distract from the sound yet another toilet flushing more taxpayer money. This time it just happens to be at the Union Depot...

Perhaps the water flushed down toilet is his drinking water. And that is why he is upset.

Just because it's not first-class airfare, you should not assume that everybody who takes the bus to and from Chicago is on welfare. Yes, some of the riders have moved to the TC for a better life and a better job, however, Megabus is full of college students and other hardworking people. Joe Blow, people like you make me want to scream. Welfare? You don't have any problem with the rich corporate owners who always have their hand out trying to get the government to give them tax breaks or build their facilities or legislate to squash their competition--that's real welfare not the food stamps, for example, that help agriculture and grocery stores as much as they help the poor. Yet you bash low-income people, many of whom probably work a lot harder than you do for almost nothing and many of whom have multiple jobs because the pig owners don't pay their workers a decent wage or provide health care, causing us taxpayers to have to pay for it.

So, does that mean that you "know" me? Seems to be, because you are putting what you believe are my ideals out there without any knowledge of me or my life. You are a sad little man.

Minnesota Politics works this way.
Minneapolis Legislators run Capital hill. Watch Legislative session on TV and it clearly shows.
So the Mpls libertards supported the Union Depot renovation costing $300,000,000 as part of their high stakes horse trading to get the Vikings stadium approved by all DFL libertards.
Mpls libertards being no dummies wanted to get rid of the Megabus and they planned to dump it into the Union Depot once it was renovated.
The Union Depot WILL evolve into a no-mans-land where crime and bums flourish. Having visited the Depot pre-Megabus and the place would never be a target for terrorist because it was empty much like St Paul.
IF anyone visits the Union Depot without blinders on it clearly OBVIOUS the $300,000,000 was WASTED on the latest white elephant developed by DFL libertards.
For those "thinking" the MegaBus isn't used by welfare bums, fools!
Just about one year ago, I stopped into the Union Depot and spent a half hour walking around the place. It really is a lovely building.

Amongst the golden arches, marble floors, and artistic scrolls, there was a small booth downstairs for the Jefferson Bus Lines and a booth for Metro Transit busses. There was a taxi stand out front. And there were schedules posted for the busses that leave multiple times daily for Treasure Island Casino, and Mystic Lake Casino. Did they need to spend $243 million for that?

The building was dang near empty for the time I was in there, right around mid-day. You would think for $243 million, they would at least hire some people to stand around and look like they were going to go somewhere.

Coming shortly, they will add the MegaBus to run the criminals between Chicago and St Paul. Add in the billion dollar light rail to transport the gang bangers between downtown St Paul and downtown Minneapolis for free.

$243 million dollars to pander to criminals and those that can not afford to drive to the casino, but still have money to lose out there?

Way to go St Paul DFL'ers! Keep those money trees growing cuz you are going to need them.

I think if you look at how this posting was "Judged" by readers, you will see and hopefully understand why Minneapolis/St Paul will soon become a
Barren Wasteland of Crime". The people "Judging" have no sane idea that what the posting(s) stated was TRUTH! Plain and simple folks.

I remember when the place had a sit down Lean Chin's as well as at least two other restaurants. One was a Greek eatery. I think the third one had ribs.
.
Used to have friends that lived in apartments not far from there. As well as I used to help out with the fund raising of the local pbs station.
