Good grief! Can't find something REAL and important to do in Washington, Al? No issues like passing a budget in the senate (one of your CONSTITUTIONAL duties)? No tax bills to pass that you later try to repeal because you didn't read the bill in the first place? Just what we need is another Amy Klobuchar and more consumer protection laws. Here's a clue, Al: The criminals don't care about the laws. Do you really think a stalker is going to NOT do something because of the Franken law? Sure... he will break the existing stalker laws. But the new Franken Law? Nope. That's where the criminal will draw the line.

People need to be responsible and turn on only the apps they want. Whatever happened to personal responsibility?

Good grief. Al's doing his job, he's on the committee that oversees these things. He's not on the budget committee.

I would much rather have Al focusing on creating and keeping jobs in MN. Maybe he should read the Obama care bill and think about impacts for Minnesota.

The Al Franken 2014 Campaign Machine(Star Trib)is kicking into gear. One of many puff pieces to come.
