"You can't govern by fear. If we could, we would ask Winston Churchill. Just remember this - if not for a Republican Senate and Donald Trump, the country would be in great peril right now. And if now for one or two Republican Senators in Minnesota, it would be game over."
Believe it or not, today's hometown newspaper's op/ed section, the editors really blasted our new Governor. Why? His disastrous flip flop on the Enbridge Line Three Oil Pipeline. Oh, you mean the one he promised to have built if elected? The one he promised to the union workers who would build it? The one which is fifty years old, and in such need of replacement, it can only be run at 50% capacity? That is the one. Walz was all gung-ho until the Sierra Club twisted his pinkie about it. Now he has put it on hold for a year, so it can be "studied" some more. Gag me with a spoon.
What is the result of that flip flop? For the next year, thousands of high paying union jobs to build this new pipeline will go empty. Ouch Timmy! Oil will continue to flow at a reduced rate in a very risky pipeline. More oil will need to be transported via rail - another risky venue.
Wait a minute! This are valid concerns! There was simply no good reason to put this new pipeline on hold for yet another year! Oh, yes there is! Fear. Deer in the headlights fear. Governor Tim "Rocks and Cows" Walz is scared s**tless. Why? Special interests. He is all tied up in the dystopian world of PC madness.
The Walz pipeline issue should be exhibit "A" to make my case about Democrats. The case they can't govern, because they are beholden to their special interests. Beholden to such a degree, NOTHING relevant ever gets done (unless you count the disaster known as ObamaCare). Ever. I was going to make old "Rocks and Cows" Exhibit "A", but it seems that Ms. Nancy has already grabbed that honor. So "Tim the Taxer" will have be Exhibit "B".
This last week, was the beginning of the end for this feckless Speaker of the House. This woman who is old enough to be Omar's grandmother, got played like a finely tuned violin. Instead of renouncing this young twerp from Minneapolis, she instead concocted an "omnibus" anti-hate resolution. One which denounces hate against Jews, Muslims, Blacks, Gays, Martians, and liver and onions. It covered absolutely everything. After this PC piece of garbage passed using a whole lot of fear as the catalyst, Omar walked away giving high fives her supporters. She successfully cowed the old gal who is running the joint.
Wait just a minute! Cowed Ms. Nancy? She has been around before dirt was invented. She is a great parlor negotiator (some say). How in the world could she have been bested? Fear. Scared s**tless by this little Muslim. Why? With this flood of refugees we are letting in, the Muslims are a new Democrat stronghold for votes. There is NO WAY Ms. Nancy wanted to be the one tagged with screwing this one up!
So here we stand folks. Thanks to way too many "Republicans" staying home this past election, we now have our Congress and the State of Minnesota being run by scared rabbits.
You can't govern by fear. If we could, we would ask Winston Churchill. Just remember this - if not for a Republican Senate and Donald Trump, the country would be in great peril right now. And if now for one or two Republican Senators in Minnesota, it would be game over.
What am I saying? Elections REALLY count folks. We are hanging on my our fingertips right now. When I say the republic is at stake, I am not talking trash - I am talking truth.
