Sounds like another opportunity for Shakopee. Mayor Tabke, time to take a trip to White Bear Township!

It took our legislature over 12 years to get a Viking Stadium built on the cheap again. They can't possibly move fast enough to keep Schwing here. Count them as gone. They just put a whole lot of small businesses out of business with the sales tax thing, they don't know and don't care about businesses, unless they are contributing to there campaign funds.

SO in other words a Chineese company is shoppiing for a subsidy. We need to outlaw these attacks from the public sector on Minnesotans property.

"We need to outlaw these attacks from the public sector on Minnesotans property." - When I say that understand they are already unconstitutional. This already constitutes criminal behavior, it's just a problem of the party and courts protecting it. One citizen saying no would be all it takes to bring the issue to progress and termination.

These southern and other "red" states seem incapable of creating their own jobs on their own. They are only capable of making disasterous tax deals with companies outside their states to lure them in. In the meantime, their schools and universities get worse because they're starved for funding and in the long run, the people who might have become an new entreprenuer don't actually create the jobs they might have.

With the Tax and Spend Demoncrats in full control of the state government why would any business or individual want to remain in Minnesota? It surely cannot be because of "Minnesota Nice" because that doesn't exist at least not any more! Yes I am also looking to get out of here as soon as I can find someone to buy my lakefront home without trying to steal my underwear in the process!
