Are Republicans playing chicken ???

What a bunch of Republican hypocrites we have in Washington right now.
Congress Has Voted 7 times since 2002 to raise the debt ceiling, but
now that Obama Is the President Republicans have decided against it.

It is so obvious to intelligent people just what is going on right now.
Republicans want to take this fight into the 2012 elections so they have a better chance of defeating President Obama.
They don't care what their fight is going to do to the American people.
The People need to take responsibility too. If they flooded the telephones and the emails of the Republican legislature maybe they would get the message.

Minnesota's shut down ended with everyone unhappy with the outcome. I think that means it was the best deal we could get at this time.
Republicans lost their battle and many of their followers are very unhappy with them.
There are a number of freshman legislators that are more then likely not going to be elected next year.
Many of the progressives are unhappy with Daytons agreement too, but he is not up for re election until 2014. If he can get a majority in the House and Senate in 2012, he will get the revenues increases our state needs.

I do not have a Masters degree in Economics but I do have common sense.

We need to end Bush's wars, his tax cuts to the rich, subsidies to the oil companies and make sure American corporations pay a fair tax.
If this is done I think we will be on our way to reducing this huge deficit George W Bush has given us.

We got 5 inches of freaking rain last night and I have wet carpeting in the basement..
It is midnight and Steam masters will finally be here in a half hour to try and suck out most of the water from the carpet. they have been at my neighbors for over 5 hours.
I will probably be up all night.
Does anyone want to come and play ??

Compromise is not a four letter word!

I hate to shock people with another post this soon.

Today our Governor made this video, it is something that should be on every TV station in our state.
But it is up to TV stations to show it and if they don't get paid it probably won't be seen. I posted it on Face Book and here and hope others will do the same.
People don't seem to understand what is at stake if he gives in to Republicans. Their cuts would be catastrophic to the most vulnerable.
The same thing that will happen nation wide if the debt ceiling isn't raised in the next couple weeks.

Mark Dayton is a kind and caring man and I hope he can hang in there.

Eaton 4 Senate

It has been a busy month. With the death of our friend and State Senator Linda Scheid, we have been on a mission to find the right candidate to fill her seat. It took some time for us, but we did get the candidate we wanted from day one. When Linda was told a week before her death from ovarian cancer that Chris Eaton agreed to run for the seat, her response was "phenomenal".

Linda's family is on board and willing to help in any way they can,and that is very important to our cause. Now the work begins. Yesterday we spent a few hours working on a fundraising mailing that will got out to about 2500 residents. Chris has to raise 3000.00 in 50 dollar donations to qualify for matching funds from the state.

Tuesday night we will hold our first fundraiser. Chris and her family have been down a very long road recovering form the death of her beautiful daughter form a drug over dose I wrote about it back om May 30th 2007. It took all us by surprise, but Chris and her family grew from the tragedy and from that it has made her a much stronger woman and someone whose causes will be directed to the most vulnerable in our state

Chris has a website Eaton4Senate check it out.
