New Trick To Get Around Do Not Call Lists, Watch Out!

A new phone campaign called "Political Opinions of America" offers a three-question "poll," and then offers a reward that sounds suspiciously like a classic timeshare sales pitch. After answering political questions, the person is transferred to a live operator from "corporate travel services" who is giving away free cruises thanks to an anonymous donor. Some say it is a scam.

Scott Walker Recall Primary Election Confusing To Some Voters

Today I went and voted in the WI Recall Primaries.  This was my first time voting in a few years, but seeing that I've finally settled down, picked my home, and decided to get more politically active I went out to vote.  I was surprised that at 3:30 PM there was a line at my polling place.  There was a steady line from the time I arrived to well after I left.  (I drove by again after running errands, as it was on my way home.)  I was searching the web about the recall when I got home and saw this story where some voters are being confused by the ballot.

Vikings Stadium Plan Passes Minnesota House; Ownership Asked To Pay More

In a big step forward for those who support a new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings, the Minnesota House voted 73-58 to approve a public subsidy package for a new stadium, The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.  It will now head toward the state Capitol for final passage.  The stadium project could go to the Senate for a vote as soon as today.  If all goes well, it could be ready for Governor Mark Dayton to sign into law by the end of the week.  However, Viking's owner Zygi Wilf may not be 100% pleased with the plan that was passed.

NFL Turns Up Heat: ‘There Are Plenty Of Willing Buyers’ For Vikings

What a year of embarrassment for the state of Minnesota.  It wasn't long ago we made headlines with the shutdown.  Now our "leaders" are being  scrutinized across the country once again.  Regardless of your stance on the stadium issue, everyone should be concerned with the inability to communicate and work together amongst leadership.  They play games and pout.  As I mentioned yesterday, the chances the Vikings will leave Minnesota are now stronger than the chances they will stay.   The lions share of the blame can be placed on elected officials who dragged their feet for 6 years.  I don't know if  it was arrogance or ignorance, or a healthy dose of both on their part.

Best Country Artist for President – Readers Poll

To date, no country stars have offered their names as candidates for the US presidency, but that won’t stop us from wondering what it would be like if stars like Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire and Hank Williams Jr. traded in their tour bus for a seat on Airforce One. Which country music superstar do you think would make the best president?

Dayton Decries Photo ID Push With A ‘Veto’

I posted a story on this last week and thought that it wasn't a bad idea to require more identification to vote.  My point was that government issued ID's are required for the most basic things such as opening a checking account so why not require such identification for something as important as voting?

Photo ID Amendment Passes Senate, Heads To Voters

This amendment would make it a requirement to have a government issued photo ID in order to vote in Minnesota.  I was actually amazed when I moved, and then registered to vote in my new location, how little verification was actually required.
