Biden and education – who knows, yet?

December 3, 2020

I’m somewhere between progressives who are in “give the guy a chance” mode, and those who are already openly cynical about there being realistic possibilities of Pres.-elect Biden bringing about much, if any, lasting, positive change during his term(s). Nothing wrong with pushing for positives, whether you privately have any optimism that way or not. […]


MN-08: Ditching Rep. Stauber, Part 3

October 28, 2020

From an email I got from the Quinn Nystrom campaign: When (Rep. Pete Stauber) said about COVID-19, “Predominantly the people who succumb to this disease are seniors or folks with pre-existing conditions” Quinn responded: “Every single person’s life is valuable in this district.” Audio of the phone-in debate, hosted by MPR last Friday, is here.

Minnesota firms seek, and get, waivers to spew toxins

June 18, 2020

You’ve probably seen that the Environmental Protection Agency, which is essentially being destroyed thanks to the relentless corruption and mind-bogglingly pitiful stupidity of Trump and his Buffoon Brigade, was told a while back to essentially stop enforcing environmental protection laws, under cover of the COVID-19 pandemic. And you have to be awfully naive, not to […]


MN-01: Rep. Hagedorn rides the right-wing crazy train on COVID-19

April 29, 2020

There’s this: On (April 20), Rep. Jim Hagedorn (R-MN) claimed that allowing members of Congress to vote on legislation from their home is a scheme to make it easier for all Americans to vote by mail in November. In a Facebook post, Hagedorn called remote voting a “very bad idea,” even during the coronavirus pandemic, […]


Should Minnesota follow California into sovereignty?

April 20, 2020

CA Gov. Gavin Newsom’s statements were not in fact meant to be taken entirely seriously, any more than the title of this story really is. Newsom’s remarks were about making a point, and pushing Trump’s buttons. But there is telling reality behind it all. It’s also at the forefront of our nation’s demographic transformation, and […]

The only shocking thing about the Trump Crash is that it took this long

April 1, 2020

About the last thing that I claim to be is any kind of economics guru. When I read about and think about the topic, these days, which I don’t do much of, it’s behavioral economics. So the only thing I have to say about what will happen with the economy going forward is that anyone […]
