How My State Rep Thinks..

27 01 2013

Government spends money so that the economy can be stimulated and money can
be made. You have to spend money at the macro level to make it work. This
is different at the household level. The private sector creates money by
pulling it out of thin air.~David Bly…

Pretty much explains his big government, socialist leanings.





Did you know you are 14 1/2 times more likely to be assaulted by a random person on the street than a legally armed Minnesotan?

Minnesota’s law-abiding permit to carry holders set a clear example of what law abiding behavior looks like.

Take a look at our latest infographic:

Here are the facts:

  • Only 0.2% of all violent crimes with a weapon in Minnesota were committed by a legally armed Minnesotan.
  • Only 8/100th of 1% of Minnesota Permit to Carry holders committed any sort of a violent crime in 2013.
  • Only 1/100th of 1% of Minnesota Permit to Carry holders used a firearm in a violent crime in 2013.
  • You’re 25 times more likely to be hit by lightning than assaulted by a legally armed Minnesotan.
  • In fact, you’re 14 1/2 times more likely to be assaulted by a random stranger on the street – than you are by a legally armed Minnesotan.

Law abiding gun owners aren’t the problem

GOA-backed “Constitutional Carry” Bills Introduced in Congress!
— Urge your congressmen to cosponsor the Stutzman bill

Kevin,

Last week, Congressman Marlin Stutzman (R-IN) introduced H.R. 923, a concealed carry reciprocity bill that will prohibit anti-gun states like New York and California from cancelling the Second Amendment rights of Americans from other states.

If you have a concealed carry permit — or if you come from a freedom-loving “constitutional carry” state that

doesn’t require one! — you should be able to carry anywhere in the country without fear of losing your constitutional rights because of where you are.

Stutzman Bill Protects Constitutional Carry States

There are six constitutional carry states — and about a dozen states that are considering such laws this year. The Stutzman bill is quite different from competing bills which would require states like Vermont…

Democrat Hypocrisy: Unbound, Unraveling…

A petulant public feud erupted between Democrat Gov. Mark Dayton and Democrat Majority Leader Tom Bakk when Senate Democrats cynically passed a bill blocking Dayton’s outrageous pay raises for his political appointees. 

However, let’s not forget that those same Democrats gave the Governor unilateral power to raise salaries in the first place!

Kevin,

ACTIONContact your Senators and urge them to cosponsor S. 477, a bill that will take down Operation Choke Point once and for all.

Operation Choke Point a Threat to the Second Amendment

About a year ago, the Second Amendment community was rocked by news that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) had teamed up with Attorney General Eric Holder to utterly destroy firearms manufacturers and dealers by cutting off all credit and banking relationships with them.

For its part, the FDIC categorized gun and ammunition sales as a “high-risk business,” lumping it in with drug dealers, pornographers, and Ponzi scheme operators — all of which it was working to completely destroy.

Holder, in turn, would provide the “muscle” — using a program called Operation…

Dayton Approves Outrageous Pay Raises For Political Appointees

6 02 2015

Originally posted on Freedom Is Just Another Word...:

Democrat Gov. Mark Dayton approved more than $700,000 in pay raises for his political appointees in state government bureaucracies, while Minnesotans are left to pay the bill.

Just how outrageous are these government pay raises? The chair of the Met Council received an $84,000 raise, he now makes over $144,000! (2/5/15, WCCO)

Click here to view all pay raises.

Republicans like Representative Roz Peterson are standing up for Minnesotans against Dayton. She said, “At a time when take-home pay for families remains flat and some Minnesotans are still struggling to make ends meet, it’s outrageous that the Governor would approve enormous salary increases for commissioners and political appointees already making six-figure salaries.” (Full Statement)

In 2013, Dayton imposed the largest tax increase in Minnesota’s history of $2.1 billion. Now he wants another $6 billion tax increase using a general sales tax…

Anti Gun AARP’s fall from grace

The AARP has been sending me their crap for years now…

Not for me..Gray haired communists..

Dear Mr. Rand,

Recently you sent us a letter encouraging us to renew our lapsed membership in AARP by the requested date. This isn’t what you were looking for, but it is the most honest response I can give you. Our coverage gap is a microscopic symptom of the real problem, a deepening lack of faith. While we have proudly maintained our membership for years and long admired the AARP goals and principles, regrettably, we can no longer endorse its abdication of our values. Your letter stated that we can count on AARP to speak up for our rights, yet the voice we hear is not ours .

Your offer of being kept up to date on important issues through DIVIDED WE FAIL presents neither an impartial view nor the one we have come…
