...means property OWNER poor. Let's adjust our property taxes to the REAL value of our homes. I don't think any community will be "rich" anymore.

Always threaten to cut public safety first. Put fear into the people that crime will run rampant. That way they will support your lack of spending restraint. A well armed home is a safe home. Remember, police have to negotiate with criminals, homeowners don't.

Didn't mayor Chris Coleman promise us that we would be rolling in dough when the Republican fatcats came to town? Didn't Coleman promise us that we would be making millions and millions and millions of dollars? Surely he wasn't just talking about Sarah Palin's makeup artist! Where did that money go? Why aren't we rich now? We MUST have received something for all the rights we gave up during the RNC. Where is the money?

They have an army of housing inspectors, people whose job it is to mail out reminders about garbage - just a whole pile of useless individuals who just create a HUGE beauracracy. Time to give out the pink slips.

...perhaps they should rethink the multimillion dollar "green" roof for the Target Center.

does this mean that the $500,000 for artsy drinking fountains that the Minneapolis City Council unanimously approved last Summer are in peril? Oh noooooo!

I don't get that, at all. I would think that it would be a RED and WHITE roof, with concentric circles painted on it! Green?? What the h***??
