Community Solutions Podcast

www.commsolutionsmn- The St Paul City Council authorized a new permanent committee to be put in charge of researching and Reparations Legislative Advisory Committee. The council also passed a resolution to apologize for Minnesota's part in slavery (we weren't a slave state, by the way). That lets you know exactly where this group is coming from. This group has almost no one that comes from the private sector. It's full of non-profit folks, public employees, and the like. They want cash payments, but are also looking for systemic changes. With this being a permanent committee, you know that they will never have enough, and will always be asking for more.

Slave owners visited Minnesota with their slaves, which apparently makes us complicit in the practice of enslaving other human beings. They continue to complain about the construction of racist I-94 dividing the Rondo neighborhood of St Paul (forget that they keep pushing for light rail to divide neighborhoods up). Minnesota is not the only state to do this. California, again, is leading the way in bad ideas. They are asking for $569 billion total, and $223,200 per person.

We also discuss the recent passing away of Barbara Walters and the gift she left all of us in "The View", and the election for speaker of the House of Representatives. There's a lot more going on here than most of you are hearing.
