See article published on Facebook by Jay Duggan at Recall Governor Tim Walz
IS THIS TIM WALZ’S “ONE MINNESOTA”?
How come the only issues in the special session are Mpls issues? How come Paul Gazelka leading the Republican Senate is pressured to pass new Mpls DFL rules for police statewide and a $2 BILLION bonding bill full of Mpls DFL lightrail and building projects? If 90% of COVID deaths and positive tests are within sight of downtown Mpls or St Paul how come Dictator Walz wants 1 size fits all the mask, business restrictions, and school start restrictions for Mpls applied statewide?
How come the DFL isn’t concerned that many small town main streets survivability is based on the handful of businesses closed by COVID or that COVID is almost a non issue in Greater Minnesota? Or why is not important to modify COVID regulations in Moorhead, Ortonville, East Grand Forks, La Crescent, Winona, Wabasha, Red Wing, Duluth that look across a river and see their business going to an open Wisconsin, So Dak, or No Dak? Or Austin, Albert Lea, Fairmont, Luverne, Worthington, and Blue Earth that see business going across the county line to a fully open Iowa?
Why does the DFL continue to change the hard rock mining regulations and hurdles every time one is met, trying to stop a new mine?
Why are Tim Walz and Keith Ellison allowing environmental groups that support them to use the MPCA rules to sue a family dairy farm in SE Minnesota over cow farts and global warming BECAUSE THEY WANT TO BUY MORE COWS?
How come nobody in the DFL will help outstate office holders petition Wash DC to get wolf management back to the state to protect the state’s elk, moose, deer, sheep, and cattle herds?
How come Walz tried to appoint an anti-mining candidate to the IRRRB, when that is their budget/money source for diversifying the Iron Range economy?
How come multiple billion dollar train lines from suburbia that end in Minneapolis is the DFL priority and in the bonding bill while the road and bridge repair/replace backlog outstate is over 10yrs?
Why do Tim Walz and the DFL oppose the L3 oil pipeline replacement that would remove daily oil trains from traveling right thru the middle of dozens of little outstate towns?
Why does Tim Walz want a 20 cent gas tax on outstate people who drive double the miles per year than the average Minneapolis metro resident? That is a tax on rural areas that have to travel longer distances to buy and sell goods or do their trade.
How come clean water for the metro people always means another farm, livestock, or feedlot regulation but outstate towns have to fight for waste water treatment plant grants to do the same thing?
All of these issues are important to people who live outside the little DFL 494/694 bubble around Minneapolis.
MAYBE THE MAP BELOW HELPS EXPLAIN THE TIM WALZ DFL “ONE MINNESOTA”?
Every important DFL position of any power resides in a 10 mile x 30 mile rectangle in the Minneapolis metro area (except the State Auditor – Blaha, she’s the black dot near Anoka)
Governor Walz – St Paul
Lt Governor Flanagan – St Louis park
Secretary of State Simon – Hopkins
Atty General Ellison – Minneapolis
Dept Public Safety Harrington- St Paul
MNHealth Commissioner Malcolm – Minneapolis
DFL Senate Leader Kent – Woodbury
DFL House Leader Winkler – Golden valley
Minneapolis Mayor Frey – Minneapolis
Important Majority House Committees:
Ways & Means (the spending) Carlson – Crystal
Education Youakim – Hopkins
Govt Ops Freiberg – Golden Valley
Commerce – Eagan
Rules Winkler – GV
(only Labor, Enviroment, Taxes, and Ethics are outstate run main committees)
Klobuchar, Tina Smith, Ilhan Omar? Minneapolis. Surprised?
When you wonder why Tim Walz’s DFL acts like you or your issues don’t exist, it’s because they don’t. Im not sure if 90% of them even know there is a state outside 494/694 unless its along the road to their cabin.
THERE IS ‘ONE MINNESOTA’ AND ITS 10 MILES HIGH X 30 MILES WIDE AND IF YOU DONT LIVE IN IT OR BELIEVE LIKE THEY DO, YOU DONT EXIST.
SO EVEN IF YOU FIND A WAY “TO ATONE FOR YOUR 400 YRS OF FOUNDATIONAL RACISM” YOU WILL STILL ONLY BE A PERSON WITH AN ISSUE FROM FLYOVER COUNTRY OUT WHERE “THEY” KEEP THE #RocksAndCows.
TELL PAUL GAZELKA (REPUBLICAN SENATE LEADER) NOT TO SELL OUT TO MPLS AND REVOKE “GOVERNOR OF MINNEAPOLIS” WALZ’S DICTATOR POWERS – OR GO HOME!!!
NO BONDING BILL!!! 651-296-4875
If Paul insists on selling us out he has a primary opponent not so willing to roll over for Walz. http://www.DahlForSenate.com We find out Monday. Walz says it’s a done deal.
