I'm sure this has nothing to do with our corporate tax rate (9.8%)...in the top five highest among the states and the District of Columbia(http://www.taxfoundation.org/research/show/230.html). Sure is attractive to set up shop in Minnesota.

Pretty easy to blame Governor Pawlenty. Let us not forget that both the Minnesota Senate and House are vast DFL majorities. Seems to me, if you blame anyone, it would be the party that runs two of the three branches, but that would be intuitive. Common sense is missed in these parts.

The major discount stores are offering numerous "Chinese" made products at great discounts. These Chinese goods will put Minnesoteans to work. We need to be thankful. And, always be grateful to China for our prosperity.
