"To me this is about a public/private partnership of a large scale that can generate several thousand jobs in the next three years or so."-----And we will be paying for those jobs for the next 30. Not a good trade, Gov. Get to work on something meaningful.

it's Packer week, I wonder how many of our beloved legislators are wearing purple and how many are wearing green at the Capitol this week. I wonder sometimes? I wonder if Kurt Zellers does the Lambouea leap in the house chambers.

I would like to see that this would get done by feb 1 2012 or we could lose the vikings and if we lose the vikings there would be alot of vikings fans mad at some people in the state capaital and then where do people go for jobs and you know that alot of sio9ux falls sd people would be upset with the people that don't care about the stadium and then someone would say we are sorry for you getting layoff from work and now you don't have money to pay or bills and feed your family and then they would say you should build that football stadium for the vikings team and then we all would not get to come up to the twins cities to spend money for there favorite team the minnesota vikings and then you would lose alot of money so get it done and don't play games or you would be they biggest loser in the united states and then minn.would go down the hill with alot of people looking for jobs and then you would get alot of phone call and say you got me lay off from work because i used to work with the vikings so please give all the vikings fans a new stadium and for the team to stay in minnesota so we can enjoy football and watch them kick but there to that is all we want for christmas is the vikings to stay in minnesota and the scheels store would love them to get it too because they sell alot of vikings stuff too so please get this done and move on with it gov i know you are doing your best so keep it up on the stadium

C'mon folks. What is the count of the number of Vikings fans that care to pay higher taxes for this stadium?

When you hear the Governor or any politician say "public/private partnership", run the other way. It means the Governor's cronies are going to profit at the expense of the hardworking, taxpaying public.

Hey Governor, how about first paying the $700 million we owe in backpayments our schools before we start talking about a stadium?

First, he wanted to tax the top 1% to pay the 99%. The Republcans would have none of that. Now he wants to tax the 99% to pay his 1% pal Zygi Wilf. How about keeping your grubby hands off the taxpayer please?

How would it be if the Governor and legislators focus on investing in business that creates high-skilled jobs and middle-income paychecks for Minnesotans rather than investing in a losing football team owned by a fat-cat from New Jesey?
