Dayton doesn’t have a side. He has never proposed a budget.

I’ve never understood the people who take the time to vote neither, undecided, or don’t care. Reminds me of an old cartoon of a guy telling a pollster “You can put me down as apathetic, I don’t care.”

It would appear Wisconsin border cities could make some $$ by stocking Miller beer products.

Voted. However I am also voting with my feet. End of August I will be in Texas.
It’s not just bars and liquor stores facing shutdowns in this state. A paper mill in Duluth just shut down because its permit with the State of Minnestoopid expired. The company can not renew the permit because Mark Dayton does not want to do his (censored) job.
There will be a flood tide of producers out of Minnesota. So tell me, Crazy Eyes Mark, how are you then going to finance your welfare state, with no producers to pay taxes?
Good riddance.

Yep. Wonder if I’d get arrested for filling my van with Miller and setting up a booth on a street corner in Minneapolis. :-)

MillerCoors loses right to sell beer in Minnesota during shutdown

http://www.bizjournals.com/twincities/morning_roundup/2011/07/miller-coors-loses-right-to-sell-beer.html?s=newsletter&ed=2011-07-13&ana=e_twin_rdup

Check received by state June 27 (for the corrected amount) , 3 days letter they get a letter saying ‘your license is expired’ .
(shutdown began June 30) ...gross inefficiency by bloated goobermint on display again.

And some still want them to run their healthcare?

Thanks for posting this. I was not aware of it. I have now officially voted for the GOP side.

Our deer-in-the-headlights-Governor hasn’t a clue about governing or about balancing a budget. In that aspect he resembles our POTUS.

Yes you would. No license to sell, unlicensed product, no sales tax license, did not pass state sting operation. Do you have the city permit? was the states beer tax collected and paid?

Your better off selling pot on the corner.

Almost 650 people felt so strongly about not knowing that they just had to vote. They must be the swing voters RINOS pander to.

One thing I have noticed is the number of police cars out giving speeding tickets. From my observation, speed tickets have increased by a factor of ten.
