Occupy Wall Street acting stupidly videos (Minnesota, pirates, show tunes, dress-up...) - 01/21/12

... "Occupirates" from Minneapolis, Minnesota protest in front of US Bank. The Teapartiers have a similar affliction where their response to problems involves playing dress-up games like children, something they probably got from Ron Paul fans. That strange issue the Tea Partiers share with OWS has even drawn criticism from Glenn Beck who suggested the Teapartiers back off on the costumes (Sep. 16,...

Far-left Robert Erickson dumps glitter on Newt Gingrich; teaparty, ALIPAC partly to blame (Nick Espinosa) - 05/18/11

... event location: Minneapolis, Minnesota. This is obviously despicable behavior that's just one small step up from what the far-left usually engages in: pie throwing, pulling fire alarms, and the like. Whether openly trying to silence those they oppose or just dumping glitter on them, the far-left is incapable of debating their opponents. So, how are the tea parties and ALIPAC partly to blame for...

... percent); Pennsylvania (59 percent); Minnesota and Oregon (56 percent); and Colorado (55 percent). Per this: Some immigrant-advocacy groups criticized the report, saying it was engineered to inflame anti-immigrant sentiment by making an unequal comparison between immigrant households, which tend to be low-income, and all native households, including low-income and high-income households....

WSJ and SEIU complain about immigration audits, show no concern for American workers (Miriam Jordan, Harvard Maintenance, Minnesota) - 03/15/11

... Maintenance to Lose Over Half of Minnesota Work Force" (link). It features the WSJ highlighting complaints about that audit from the Service Employees International Union, without mentioning the fact that the raid might have opened up hundreds of jobs for American citizens and legal workers.

Tim Pawlenty's crazy Tea Party outreach - 03/01/11

Former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty is reaching out to the tea parties and doing it in big, crazy ways. Over the weekend, he appeared at the Teaparty "Patriots" summit in Phoenix, Arizona and said among other things this completely false statement (video: peekURL.com/vNQNJUT ): "I'm here to say thank you for standing up to the ruling class" [meaning: "liberal power brokers, guardians of the...

Ohio, Illinois, NY, NJ, Penn to lose political power due to massive immigration (House seats; also: IA, LA, MA, MI, MN, MO) - 11/19/09

... Massachusetts (-1), Michigan (-1), Minnesota (-1), Missouri (-1), New Jersey (-1), New York (-1), and Pennsylvania (-1). If you're located in one of the states in the latter group, that means you're going to lose power. In that case, organize a local effort to take smart action to reduce immigration.

Toothless Obama admin immigration enforcement: 100s janitors fired, not deported (+how many SEIU members are illegal aliens?) - 11/09/09

In Minneapolis, Minnesota earlier this year, the Department of Homeland Security sent no match letters or a variant to around 1200 janitors employed by the major corporation ABM informing those employees that there was a mismatch between their Social Security numbers and other information. They were required to provide documentation by October, and when all or almost all didn't, ABM fired them;...

Bush, McCain winners flocking to Tim Pawlenty campaign - 10/12/09

Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty has recently formed a PAC and will probably be running for president in 2012. And, a whole gaggle of what some call "RINOs" are flocking to his side, including those formerly associated with the losing campaign of John McCain and the disastrous presidency of George W Bush. You can find a list of some of them here; part of the Hill article (which isn't currently...

Josh Marshall /TPMTV misleads about Michelle Bachmann - 03/24/09

It's apparently open season on Michelle Bachmann [1], so TPM TV - run by Josh Marshall [2] - offers the attached misleading video entitled "The Bachmann Effect". Leaving the other two segments aside, the middle segment takes her comments out of context and shows how little Marshall/TPM understand about immigration issues. The middle segment features part of a debate she conducted with Elwyn...

... sure that Collin Peterson (D-Minnesota) is a liar, but we won't know for sure until the "worst" happens: Consumers could see the price of fruits and vegetables double if the nation does not address a looming farm labor shortage in the wake of tightening immigration enforcement, House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin Peterson said [collinpeterson.house.gov]. Peterson, D-Minn., told...

Is the New York Times a Mexican newspaper? - 09/30/05

I'm left with the distinct impression that the New York Times is a Mexican newspaper after reading "Way North of the Border" by Eduardo Porter and Elisabeth Malkin. Here's the paragraph on which they construct the rest of their story: The location of Mexico's latest American consulate [in St. Paul] provides a stark illustration of how economically improving groups of Mexican immigrants are...
