the world is still coming to an end and people must pay more in taxes to drop those rates by .00056%. It must be miserable to be a liberal, everything is so dire and you are not allowed to have a positive thought in your pea sized brain.

Too bad they aren't solving the autism cluster. Simple serologies would show what it is.

I have read about a study that said that liberals tend to be on the unhappy end. The study basically said liberals tend to look at life as so many things are out of whack and need fixing. On the other hand, others view mankind as imperfect, always has been, always will be, and basically just accept that.

Maybe MN should stop importing poverty from Southeast Asia, Somalia, Chicago, Detroit, and Gary, IN... Then, stop voting for Liberals that confiscate whatever you have left in the form of taxes... There are very obvious reasons why poverty is on the rise, and the reasons are easily dealt with.

never buy the paper version, complain about what they read in the stories, and then post comments that "refudiate" the facts. Funny.

They're right - poverty is immigrating here. How many immigrants aren't in poverty these days? Seriously. Just milk the system...

the reason we are drawn to on line versions of nwewspapers is easy. reporters tend to be liberal and their reporting reflects that bias. So, their stories need immediate correction and perspective and on line gives us that immediate correction. Writing a letter to the editor takes several days and the effect is loss due to time. So, immediate ridicule is the best way to expose liberals and their idiotic thinking. Plus, we need to save money so we can pay those ever expanding taxes that liberal politicians put on us.
