First CWD test negative in southeastern Minnesota

I'm confused. How is testing going to help them stop the spread? They found one, does it matter if they find 3 or 400 more? You can't stop deer from moving around, and you can't clear-kill 1/4 of the state. Even if they wanted to, there is no way to get them all. I'm fine with them saying they are testing to see how wide-spread it is, but don't try to BS us with talk of "The testing is designed to stop the spread of the fatal brain disease that affects deer, elk and moose.

Don't bother trying to talk sense to these idiots. They think all surgeries are like they see on TV, and that they know 1000 times more than anyone who was actually there.  (Feb 10, 2011 | post #120)

Yes...it is just about flowers and sunshine. Do me a favor and keep your kid away from any teams my kids are on...we don't want 'em. You are so stupid you don't even UNDERSTAND what I was posting, but you felt it necessary to attack me. Well, let me explain some things to you. Baseball chatter...USED to be 'hey batter hey batter hey batter etc' from the players in the field. We all did it, on every team, at every level. This was in the 70s and 80s, before someone decided that made everyone feel bad, apparently. It was part of the game, and it in no way made anyone feel bad, except for maybe your kid when he couldn't hit. Basketball - You have never heard the entire arena make noise to distract a shooter? Or wave bandanas or flags behind the backboard to distract them? You need a life. As for the signs, we always had signs that said stuff like "Kill the Rangers". Everyone knew it wasn't "Get a gun and shoot their best player". but morons like you apparently felt it wasn't 'sensitive' enough. I question, though, if I bought that sign to the rink today if I would even get a second glance. Even make it to a Wisconsin Badger / Gopher hockey game? One of their best chants is "Goalie (point at wisconsin goalie), Sieve (point at the Gopher goalie), Gopher on a stick (point to a guy holding a hockey stick with a gopher doll in a noose)" It is ALL IN FUN, and the only people who take it seriously or, heaven forbid, get OFFENDED, are your ilk.  (Feb 10, 2011 | post #115)

Toro plans manufacturing facility in Romania

You people do understand the the highest cost of producing small parts like this is transportation, right? Labor costs per unit to watch a machine mold out 1000s of pieces an hour is very low, but shipping those finished products to market across the sea is very expensive. If they made the parts here, between the increased (and yes, I'll bet the labor is cheaper there)cost of labor, plus the shipping cost (huge cost to ship half-way around the world), they could not be competitive in the markets there, because these parts are very low cost to the consumer.  (Feb 10, 2011 | post #20)

And since I am assuming you are none of these (doctor, surgeon, anesthesiologist, nurse anesthetist, or anything else health care related) your opinion of how the professionals handled themselves during the procedure is moot. You are the typical "something bad happened, so I deserve to drive a Ferarri" liberal who thinks everyone owes you something. I'm sure 1-800-ask-gary will be happy to help you drive up the cost of all of our medical care the next time they don't properly knock you out to cut off a hangnail.  (Feb 10, 2011 | post #57)

Wisconsin parents convicted in prayer death want new trials

It really IS as cut and dried as it seems. You can have all the religious freedom you want, but that does not extend to the welfare of a child. Once a person turns 18, they can do or not do anything they want based on religion, but parents CAN NOT harm their kids using religion or any other excuse. This law has been up-held over and over. In this case, the judge screwed up by not giving them 50 years...  (Feb 10, 2011 | post #4)

6 months for killing their child. Nice justice.  (Feb 10, 2011 | post #2)

Efforts to verify workers continues to rankle in Minnesota

Let me rephrase that for you: Laws only apply when I agree with them. Otherwise, I will make up what o feel "the spirit of the law is" and do whatever I want.  (Feb 10, 2011 | post #153)

Green Bay alderman opposes renaming street after Packers ...

They could rename ALL the streets in Green Bay, and not throw away 1% of the money they flush down the toilets in Minneapolis and Saint Paul on worthless project. AND their streets aren't full of potholes!  (Feb 9, 2011 | post #5)

Oh, please. When we were kids, we had signs like this in the stands. It was just fun and school spirit then, and it was now. Somehow the Internet makes it bad? B as in B, S as in S. This is just another stop on the PC train. Remember when we used to 'chatter' in baseball? That's taunting the batter now. Remember when we used to trash talk the guy from the other team taking a free throw? That's 'unsportsmanlike' now. This would have never even seen the light of day had the kid not gotten hurt, and even HER COACH said it wasn't anything other than a fluke injury. But let's not let that stop us from further crushing any school spirit or competition, all in the name of Political Correctness.  (Feb 9, 2011 | post #20)

Outcry follows approval of cell phone tower in St. Croix ...

How does that land line get to your house? How much nature was destroyed to install it? If it is running on poles along the road, that is ugly and intrusive for the entire distance along the road...the cell tower would only be visible for a short time, and it is only in one place. While we are on the topic, how about your electricity? Same comments apply. This NIBMY attitude is getting old, and when you waste the energy on silly things like this tower, you ruin any real power you may have had when it comes to something bigger. Like...say...a few dozen windmills. Personally, I wouldn't even notice a cell tower, but I sure as heck would see some giant wind turbine.  (Feb 9, 2011 | post #110)

Yep. Most everyone who plays any contact sport (which girls hockey is NOT) ends up brain damaged, right? It sounds like you took one too many hits to the head in your sewing club.  (Feb 9, 2011 | post #13)
