News Roundup

There is no excuse for this crap. A molester in a daycare center needs to be removed, before having his molester-bits removed. The daycare provider should have kicked him out, the state should have arrested him, the first set of parents should have protested LOUDLY.
A 4-year-old girl was molested at her St. Paul day care center by the owner's 15-year-old nephew. But no one took action to get the boy out of the home — or stop the day care from operating — until he abused another child at the day care months later.

As much as I hate the idea of more government, I am occasionally moved to consider the idea of licensing requirements for parents. Honestly, what the hell can move someone to possibly blind or otherwise maim the one person who absolutely, in all ways depends on that individual? Children should be able to have absolute trust in their parents. "Mother is the name of god in the hearts and minds of small children."
The video showed the woman dousing the girl, spraying her in the face and down her legs. The woman continued to grab the girl as she tried to flee.

Investigators said they believe the child is 3 years old.

Minnesota is moving to eliminate the mortgage industry. If you remove the incentive for businesses, the businesses will stop offering their services. If someone signs an agreement, complete with an understanding that they will lose their house if they don't live up to their end of the bargain, why does the government need to get involved? The borrowers shouldn't have signed, in the first place if they couldn't make the payments, or didn't understand the paperwork.

The worst part, is that, at the end of the year's reprieve, the homeowners will be deeper in debt. This called "passing the buck." Somehow, I bet it will be the Republican's fault when this crap law falls apart next year.
ST. PAUL — Minnesota lawmakers are moving to cut foreclosures in half this year by making banks delay proceedings against more than 15,000 homeowners who have fallen behind on subprime and other risky mortgages.

The “Subprime Mortgage Foreclosure Deferment Act” unveiled Wednesday would freeze foreclosures for some borrowers for a year, buying them time to hang onto their homes. Homeowners would have to make reduced mortgage payments or lose the deferment.

Democrat candidate Al Franken announces "I thought laws only applied to the other people".

I see a future firefighter. Way to go, kid.
Seven-year old Carter Callahan and his mother rented the downstairs portion of the home from the 80-year old man who died in the fire in Oak Grove.

Carter told KARE 11 News he noticed the fire and tried to rescue the man and then ran out of the home.
