It's time to let your voice be heard at the Minnesota Capitol!
GOCRA ^ | 2-15-13 | GOCRA

We need you to once again show the Minnesota Legislature that real Minnesotans oppose infringements on Second Amendment rights! Senate Judiciary Committee chair Ron Latz, a consistent voice against gun rights, has scheduled three hearings next week to discuss the numerous gun control bills introduced this session.  They hearing times are:

· Thursday, Feb. 21, Noon to 2:30 p.m.

· Thursday, Feb. 21, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

· Friday, Feb. 22, Noon to 6:00 p.m.

While Senator Latz delayed public announcement of these hearings until Wednesday night, he apparently tipped off anti-rights groups early Wednesday morning!   We don't know yet which bills will be heard when, but there are plenty of bad bills to go around.

Governor Dayton is proposing that certain Snowbirds become “part-year residents” subjecting them to new taxes estimated to raise about $30 million over the biennium ($15 million a year). That is real money but in the great scheme of things, I have to wonder why the governor would want to get in grandma’s and grandpa’s grill for $15 million a year.
I am still digging into the details but so far my research finds that Snowbirds will pay income tax if they are here between 61 and 182 days and maintain an “abode” for at least 6 months.
An abode is currently defined under the 183-day residency rule as “a self-contained living unit, suitable for a year-round use, that is equipped with its own cooking and bathing facilities-in Minnesota.” It can be “rented or owned or occupied” (so I assume this means an apartment, condo, cabin, house,—heck why not an RV!).

I just don’t know why this state doesn’t fall apart with the infestation of liberals. By all means the economy should be falling apart, (maybe this is due to some residual effect of the previous administration policies, I don’t know), but if we raise the minimum wage, tax like Dayton wants, etc., it’s going to be bad. I really think Minnesota is right on the edge.

I just can’t grasp how we have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country. I really can’t.

Just like the elections. They jimmy the numbers.

the electronic vote counting machines are programmed to give the DFL the election.

but the people of MN will just get in line, and be quiet. Heaven forbid you honk you car horn. drives have spazzes.
How rude!1

Had less to do with the voting machines, and more to do with absentee ballots and same day “vouched” registrations. That is how you get 112% voter turnout that is +90% for the DFL candidate.
