    Not here necessarily, but with the way the right talks about it as a failing state you'd think they're in a perpetual state of Mao's Great Leap Forward and that everyone is required to house an illegal immigrant.

    Re: The States: Why does Minnesota wanna be Kansas?

    The growth, size and influence of CA is why the CA 3 proposal - to divide CA - is a very dangerous idea. Its addition of 4 senators to a total of 6 appears to be a field day for D, but based on the new gerrymandering, 2 of those would be guaranteed R. The problem with CA 3 is really twofold.

    One, electoral votes. Right now CA is needed to help cover the bias in terms of the national electoral college towards Rs. If you negate 55 electoral votes by giving a third of them to the GOP...you've just locked in an electoral win for the GOP that might never be overcome. Two, the influence of CA in the US and global economy. When CA puts together legislation to encourage the environment or investments in new technology, CA spurs the US as companies and the US govt. are often forced to play along. State legislation helps moderate national legislation introduced by a congress that is faar right of the country. CAs importance is critical.

    The right keeps talking about the higher costs like they mean CA is bad in some way. Higher costs in housing really means that everyone wants to live there...which means that that real people have voted that there is a noticeable better quality of life in CA based on pricing. So CA residents are spending increased incomes on quality of life. Not terrible. Saying CA is bad because its more expensive is like saying Amazon is bad because its stock is quite expensive but RJ Reynolds (Tobacco) is really cheap...CA just has better quality of life.

    Richard Painter made an interesting claim on WCCO. He said that Tina smith is for the polymet mine and he is vehemently opposed to it.

    Iíd really like to see Tina smith come out against that mine. Iím disappointed she is allegedly in favor of it.

    I personally don't know nearly enough which causes me to say 'no'. But it seems like she has conditional support based on the state's stringent environmental hurdles. Here's her pov:

    Smith said she's impressed by how far the copper-nickel mining project has come and said it's important for every stakeholder to contribute to this public comment period.

    She said she trusts the DNR and the administrative law judge to review the comments and come to a fair decision and, if PolyMet meets their requirements she said she believes the project would benefit the Iron Range.

    "I think that it's a good thing that we have these strong protections for Minnesota's air and water and if the PolyMet project is able to meet those standards then I think it'll go forward and that'll be good for jobs," she said.

    So three separate polls in WV show three different people leading the Republican Primary.

    Would LMAO if Blankenship wins. Will truly show where the Republican party is despite desperate media attempts to normalize that treasonous money laundering cult.

    Go to https://www.opm.gov/policy-data-over...eral-schedule/ and compare the pay scales for federal government workers. The Bay Area has a 39.28% locality pay adjustment, LA has a 30.57% kicker and San Diego and its environs checks in at 27.88%.
