Gas & Bag US - MSP Twin Conventions

The Target Centers existence is rooted in Retail and the Xcel Center in Gas and Electric. The US is us. Hence the label GAS & BAG US. I like it!!!

Gotta have some fun. Cuz ...Tuesday is not gonna be very fun. Trying to get around the cities via the highways when there isn't anything going on, is bad enough. I'm one of those fools who just happens to need a car for their job. Its a requirement in order to have the job. Maybe I need a new job. Forgot, those jobs don't exist anymore. Darn, right back where I started.

Minnesota's unemployment rate jumps to highest in over two decades by Martin Moylan, Minnesota Public Radio August 14, 2008

note to self: Must Stop Thinking.

"Ron Paul's rally: The other political convention in town - Paul's grassroots Rally for the Republic stands in stark contrast to the Republican national convention..."

anti-war, anti-government regulation, anti-immigration, anti-taxes, anti-Federal Reserve, anti-outsourcing, pro-individual liberty, pro-civil liberties and pro-Paul. By Suzanne Gamboa Associated Press Writer Pioneer Press 08/30/2008

Reality Check: Who Pays For Political Conventions? WCCO Reporting Pat Kessler Aug 25, 2008

Here's the big bucks REALITY.

"Buried in a bill to fund the Iraq war last year, Congress inserted $100 million -- $50 million for each city, Denver and St. Paul, for what it says is for "policing" the two conventions."

who’s Paying for the Conventions? By Amy Goodman TruthDig July 23, 2008

"Deep Throat" is said to have told Bob Woodward during Watergate to "follow the money." It looks as if this summer you need only go to the Democratic and Republican national conventions. It’s time to close this loophole.

Saw Saint Pauls Mayor Coleman on CSPAN this morning... "Hey Mayor Coleman, you are doing the best job possible with what you have to work with. Good job! Thank you. And its nice to see you are a real person. I've been wondering where you've been."

Saw Chief Harrington on CSPAN this morning... "I can only imagine how hard his job is, given that he has to work with what the Mayor can allocate to his department. So I'm going to send out a "Good Job", with a "But." Please Chief Harrington, don't forget "power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." You seem like a pleasant person, especially when one of the callers made an unwarranted comment. The Bill of Rights is a masterful piece of common sense. After all, we are still the United States of America. Aren't we?

Saw Rachel Stassen-Berger on CSPAN this morning. A Saint Paul Pioneer Press Reporter who needs to be clued in a bit more. It seems she doesn't know that we are suffering from huge numbers of job loss too. Comparing us to Ohio? Apples to oranges? Minnesota once had a remarkable land of 10,000 good job choices for every citizen. Rachel needs to roll up her sleeves and get the real back story. Tip for her to the (D) and (R) Mayors of every township and city. Then go and talk to every other elected official. Especially the ones who can remember and the ones who can honestly reflect on the real happenings. On another note, Rachel looks just like her grandfather - the 25th Governor Harold Stassen of Minnesota. Cool!

"Stassen was a strong contender for the 1948 Republican nomination for U.S. president but was defeated by Thomas Dewey at the G.O.P. national convention."

"actually helped create the Ivy League."

"A product of the University of Minnesota, Stassen brought with him a Big Ten faith that good academics and successful football teams need not be mutually exclusive."
