I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Comics taught me that those who speak the truth are heroes, all the rest are liars.

Train Spotting in Minnesota

All Aboard!
If u don't eat ur meat u kant have the figgy pudding if you don't...er...It's simple, build the high speed trains or give back the money...Apparently Wisconsin wants to keep their federal high speed train money not to have trains but to repair roads...the feds say no, can't be done....

"The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which allocated an initial $8 billion for a high-speed rail program, doesn't allow the money to be spend for other purposes, said Ross Capon, executive director of the National Association of Railroad Passengers."
As Minnesota has a joint study with Wisconsin on plans for a fast train that would connect the Twin Cities with Madison, this could be an issue. For now Minnesota officials are going ahead with their plans but may run out of steam and chug to a stop shortly!

Getting Off Track
The race for the chairmanship of House Republican conference–a match between Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann and Rep. Jeb Hensarling of Texas, is heating up. While Michelle Bachmann has the support of Minnesotans Reps. John Kline, Erik Paulsen and Chip Cravaack, apparently the more mainstreamed, established and well-known conservatives are not backing 'batcrap' Bachmann in lieu of their support for Texas Rep. Jeb Hensarling. Even the odd Teabagger seems to be supporting Hensarling.

Bachmann said that win or lose she wants to form a new group in Congress focused on adhering to principles in the Constitution. "It's important that we continue to learn more about the document we pledge to uphold,"

Personally, I think it's a good thing that Bachmann wants to study the American Constitution, it's about time she figures out the power given to take the census! Although if she's what passes for an expert on the Constitution, OMG help us, we are doomed!

The Freight Train Just Rolled Through Town
Okay Obama, time to face reality and find your ballz...in 2008 it was acceptable to try and work with the opposition party, your conciliatory message evoked earlier kinder and gentler times, you know... when American dogs and cats could play together...but by now even you have to realize being continually kicked in the teeth doesn't accomplish squat.

Man up, knock off the kumbaya crap and start taking names. Hell I'll send you the baseball bat...If you aren't capable of being the bulldog call me..but 'git er done' or get ready to face some mean looking folks carrying torches and pitchforks. It's just common sense to stop repeating message failure or did you end up with turnip brains from trying to reach out to mean monkeys? Quit pandering to the 1 percenters and the Corporatocracy and start working for the people who elected you in the first fuck sake! Don't ignore the freight train that just moved through town... it will return on schedule.
