Failing To Thrive
The Metropolitan Council keeps pushing metro cities around, incorrectly projecting growth and trying to make cities build high density housing and transit systems in the middle of a changing model. The Thrive MSP 2040 plan not only forced metro cities into unwanted development, but it also contributed to changes in Greater Minnesota, as MADO took many of these ideas for their Develop MN Plan. Well, it's time to begin planning for 2050!
Referendumb or Referendumber
It's that time once again for school boards to come to the taxpayers of their districts with their hand out and asking for money. School funding is so complicated , that it makes it difficult to follow the money. All they need to do is say that "it's for the kids", and it seems to do the trick. The Unions and the districts have a huge advantage because they have the money and resources to market their "Yes" campaign. How do we ever stand a chance for a different result?
All That Glitters Ain't Golden
Some of our cities are running into a huge problem. They are steadily moving left. Even in cities where we see strong Democrat majorities, those moderates are being replaced with radicals. One huge issue is odd year elections. Only a fraction of voters show up for odd year elections, making it easy for the Dems and Unions to turn out their base. This is used to keep tight control over who gets on their council. Look at this example from Golden Valley.
And The Union Becomes The Teacher
Any of us with children have watched as our teachers, seemingly, have more and more of these staff development days in the school calendar. What are they learning? When the teachers take classes on these development days or over MEA weekend, it would be nice to know what they are bringing back to the classroom with them. The bad news is Education Minnesota does a lot of this training. We know how radical they are, but how bad does it get?
Handpicked, Hand Selected
Robbinsdale Public Schools has a vacancy on it's school board, and guess what? They are going to have an appointment! Providing for the people to select their own is government is one of the most basic and fundamental functions of government. Instead, they are appointing someone. Big surprise. These government people claim that they are saving us all this money by not having a special election. Yet, they don't blink to spend millions of dollars on other things.
The Propaganda Machine
What if a city government was able to find out what was being said about specific local topics on social media? Well, you're in luck! A corporation named ZenCity has made that possible. They use Artificial Intelligence to aggregate social media posts for a city (or a specific city department), so that they can gauge public sentiment and change the messaging (read: propaganda) to help sway the public into supporting whatever they want to do. It's being used here in MN!
