    When Rick Perry stumps for businesses to relocate, at least he’s cheering for his home state of Texas as the final destination. In Minnesota, we have the unusual experience of having a governor laud a corporation for moving its headquarters out of the state — and out of the country. Medtronic, a leading manufacturer of medical devices, acquired an Irish firm in the same sector, but will move its corporate headquarters to Ireland rather than transfer Covidien’s executive operations to Minnesota (via Gary Gross): “As I look at the project as governor of Minnesota, this is a good deal...

    A Breitbart.tv investigation has uncovered that the man whose epic meltdown video at the "Occupy Wall Street" protests went viral is really Edward T. Hall III. Mr. Hall is a Columbia graduate student who has a trust fund set up by his grandfather. He recently made headlines for trying to board a flight at JFK airport by hopping the ticket counter and diving onto the baggage carousel. He was charged with trespassing and is free on "conditional release."
  • GOP accuses (liberal Dem candidate)Dayton of avoiding Minn. taxes

    Minnesota Republican leaders are accusing Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark Dayton of avoiding state income taxes with trust funds located outside the state. GOP chairman Tony Sutton pressed Wednesday for Dayton to release more information about his family's trusts and voluntarily pay Minnesota money from earnings on the accounts. Dayton's campaign quickly responded that the GOP was relying on outdated information and he has no current offshore holdings. Dayton has built his campaign for governor on a pledge to raise taxes on Minnesotans with the highest incomes. Dayton's family founded a major department store chain. The GOP used details from the...
  • A day in the life of Pres. Bush (4/22/07): news/pics from WH Correspondents Dinner (welcome back TS)

    PRESIDENTIAL NEWS OF THE DAY: President and Mrs. Bush spent the weekend in Washington where they attended the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner last night. The Washington Post described the President's appearance this way: The evening took a turn toward the somber when the President took the stage. After a videotaped message from David Letterman ("Top 10 George W. Bush Moments"), he said, "In light of this week's tragedy at Virginia Tech I've decided not to be funny." And with that he handed the lectern over to Rich Little. "I'm not here to make any political points," the veteran...
  • ZOT! Freerepublic Is The Most Cowardly, Unfree Site In The Universe!

    This is not a vanity post, it is the plain truth. As 'flagthefly' I posted a link to a BBC article about an investigation by the most respected medical magazine in the world, which had some unpleasant things to say about the real number of dead in Iraq. My thread got pulled after 2 replies. This has changed my opinion on this site by 180 degrees for now. Why is it not possible to post a link to news about an independent scientific investigation? If this counts as 'freedom', then I'd like to be jailed forever, that would be a...
