Maybe we should get some discussion about politics going since we are the 1st wave of the BABYBOOMERS. The ones that can change everything. The children that were given everything by their parents that their parents didn't have. Given the chance to focus on education and making this world a better place for all people and living things.
Right now I am embarrassed about the governor of MN, Pawlenty. He is full of scare tactics for those who don't know better. He is all for the previous status quo before Obama and sure doesn't want to see any support for health care for all of us workerbees, or help for the environment.
Previously MN was one of the better states with lots of programs to give those less fortunate people educational support and a boost up. 10 years ago, MN had really good services for families and children along with a fine educational system.
In his slashing and cutting, he has cut money from the schools, cut services for the poor and sick (those folks that have a hard time speaking up for themselves), while he courts Big Business money, radical conservatives and the Tea party movement. Then he wonders why the drop out rate, gang problems and killings continue to escalate expediential, of wait a minute he doesn't care because he is out campaigning outside of MN.
So how are things in your state?
