They must not have played golf at Hiawatha lately. Very poor conditions!

I'm waiting for the people to start commenting about taxes that pay for these parks. Yes they do pay for them and we ALL benefit from them. It brings successful businesses to our city and they stay here. It brings educated and productive people here and they stay here. They also pay taxes for these parks. Before you start ranting about taxes here in MN and the liberals creating an unfriendly business environment consider what said above. Also consider this. All of the top five parks rated on the list in question are from states that pay in more taxes to the federal government than they get back. If you want to talk taxes start questioning the elected officials from the red states where some take $2.74 back from the federal government for ever dollar they pay in while we only get back about 47 cents for every dollar we pay in. Then go have a look at those states and question what these "conservatives" are doing with OUR money and why their states are so awful. They don't have the parks we do. They don't have the productive and profitable business climate we have in MN and their public education systems are among the worse in the country and their people are the unhealthiest in the nation and they are red states. Blame them for not only taking your money but blame them for not spending it wisely.
