News Roundup

State Senate disapproves of a free market.
The Minnesota Senate backs a ban on software used by ticket brokers to jump in line and buy up blocks of concert tickets.

Because it, of course, wouldn't be fair. Fair is a myth, folks.

Rapist gets warm fuzzy from the court system.
A Rochester man convicted of raping three different women has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Rapists, especially the serial variety, should be sentenced as follows:
1. Nail the fun bits to the floor of a shed.
2. Proved scumbag with a rusty axe.
3. Set the shed on fire.

After that treatment, I'm pretty sure recidivism isn't an issue.

Child molester gets a hug from the court system.
VIRGINIA, Minn. (AP) ― An Eveleth man was sentenced to eight years in prison for sexually assaulting a boy in a school bathroom.

Molesting a child.
Molesting a child where they are supposed to be protected by the government.

The possibility of ever seeing daylight as a free man should be denied to this freak. I hope he dies in prison from fissures created when he receives his 'just desserts' from Ms. Bubba over the next 8 years.

If it was my son, he'd be begging to be allowed into prison. He would not want to be near me. If you molest my son, I will make the shed treatment look like a BJ over breakfast.

Jim Ramstad doesn't approve of voter expectations.
Two area state legislators should not have been punished for parting company with Republican Party powers over a transportation bill, U.S. Rep. Jim Ramstad said in Bloomington Friday.

"That is just plain wrong," Ramstad said at a town meeting at Bloomington City Hall.

Ramstad, who is not seeking re-election, said he was shocked at the rebuke issued to State Reps. Neil Peterson and Ron Ehardt after they voted to pass the bill and then to override a veto by Gov. Tim Pawlenty.

Peterson, who represents House District 41B, and Erhardt, District 41A, lost committee chairmanships after they cast their votes in February. Later, both were denied their party's endorsement for re-election.

Mr. Ramstad, I understand you stopped pretending to be a conservative a long time ago. Your liberalism allows you to interpret reality in any way you wish, so I'm sure you will miss my point.

They were denied the party endorsement by the caucus system! That means, for those unfamiliar with the process, that the delegates elected by the voters decided they weren't worthy of calling themselves Republicans. The VOTERS and their DELEGATES decided to banish these wallet-rapists from the party, NOT the Republican machine.
Ramstad said both men voted their conscience and should not have lost their committee leadership assignments.

Both men voted their politically expedient option, abandoning conservative principals and betraying their constituents. When people elect a Republican, they expect certain behaviors. That's not 'bowing to the party', that's called 'keeping your word'. Interesting concept, huh?
Ramstad is chief Republican author of the Climate Stewardship Act, which aims to reduce greenhouse gases and deal with global warming.

Damn. I was hoping you'd have a grasp of reality and possibly some critical thinking skills. Unfortunately, you drank the AGW(Anthropomorphic Global Warming) kool-aid.

Speaking of politics,

There is something afoot going on here with the Obama Camp. I'm not saying I believe every claim this guy has put forth yet; that of course is for the courts to decide. But it apparently has enough merit to convince a D.C. Judge to grant a discovery motion.

I think we should help to get this guy's word out. God knows the MSM is not going to touch it since Obama is their "Golden Boy."
