Eric you remind me of "Carlton" on the t.v. show "Fresh Prince of Beliar".

By chance do you like the "Carpenters"?

Right, the two dimensions of blacks- the street-wise and nerdy.
Problem is that's how whites see us and cast us in shows they produce. Other ones like you watch tv and say "hey, i now know black people and I get it". So, you feel ballsy enough to come on here and tell one about his people, his heritage and where he fits in.

Go to Chicago, or Atlanta and look at how blacks live from the poor to the rich and many in the working and middle classes.

You and your ilk remind of the white guys from Deliverance. You like making men squeal like pigs don't you?

Its not Thunes house, so tear it down.
The city needs money.
The only way they can achieve that is by tearing down home and building new multiplex units in its place.
The city raised taxes so high now that it puts them in the light of corruption.
So to get more - more and more taxes out of the houses that are left standing and to get higher revenue from homes that are put in there place.
Where has our tax dollars gone?

Chuck,

You never answered my post about Thune and smoking in his office after the city council enacted the smoking ban for bars.

You skirted the issue, why?

You know and Thune knows about the Clean Indoor Air Act, as Thune mentioned this many times in his argument for the smoking ban for bars.

Chuck I hear that after pictures of Thune's house were published here you went right over to Thune's house.

It is business as usual down at city hall, do as I say, not as I do.

This place looks fine to me. I think the city has some agenda going here other than fixing up the property in town. There's nothing wrong with this property at all.

I just found a St Paul Pioneer Press from March 19, 1938, detailing the rise of Hitler. It shows the Nazi distortions and misstatements, and sounds like DSI to me.

Hitler Ready to 'Use Voilence'.

Fuehrer Determined to Protect Germans Beyond Frontiers.

Adolph Hitler, appearing before the Reichstag tonight to describe with glowing phrases his seizure of Austria, told the world that Germany will use "violence when necessary" to protect Germans living beyond its frontiers.

. . . Hitler asserted, however, that he is a leader striving for peace and that German troups invaded Austria, not as conquerors, but as bretheren to spare the land of Der Fuehrer's birth "the fate of Spain because bloodshed was imminent."

He gave no clue as to the direction of his next thrust, or the means to be used . . . and assured that Germany has no ambition to extend her new Austrian provincial frontier below the Brenner Pass.

At the close of his speech Hitler announced dissolution fo the Reichstag and and election simultaneously with the April 10 plebicite when 7,600,000 Austrians will be asked to put a rubber stamp of approval on Germany's annexation of their homeleand.

Referring to the election, Hitler appealed to the German people to retain their fuehrer . . . "May the German nation give me another four years," he said.

Before he turned to his annexation of Austria he bellowed defiance of other nations attempting to curb German expansion.

. . . Territorial claims which cannot lead to solutions satisfactory to all are not justified, he said, but there are "territorial claims so unjust that their removal by violence is necessary".

. . . Hitler was bitter in his reference to Kurt Schuschnitt, until a week ago chancellor of Austria.
"Schuschnigg did not think I would act," he said. "they ought to thank God I acted. My resolution alone saved his country tens of thousands of lives."

And that's just what these Liberals do......they always have everyones best interest and saftey at heart, but people keep getting hurt and vcitimized. Just like Repke and Eric, the City Council leaders always have to preface their looney agenda with some slanderous or deceptive remark abotu someone or something to give credibility to their hap hazard policies that never work and never really help anyone but the ones promoting it. How much better is the city today than 10 years ago? Is there less crime or more? Is the crime more serious or less serious? Has Kathy Lantry trying to hold landlords responsible for everything under the sun made anyone feel safer? Did tearing down Jessamine make the neighborhood better? Did it make Nancy Osterman's mother's life more secure when her equity in the Contract for Deed on Jessamine was made worthless? She counted on that money to live on. Or was it going after Diva's bar the turning point that made the difference for the neighborhood? Don't all talk at once.

Ever since I started coming to this blog last fall, all I have been hearing was Dave Thune this and Dave Thune that.
Then people are calling him a crook, what is he about?
They always add Chucks name with his,
People are talking about how bad the city council is, how long is the council elected?
