Minnesota Network for Progressive Action
The mission of mnpACT! is to build a progressive community based upon the core values of respect, dignity and opportunity, by educating people about progressive ideas, advocating for progressive issues, and electing progressive candidates to local, state and federal offices.
I have been disappointed by politicians in the past...many times. If a Democrat screws up and you have supported them...sometimes you just have to buckle up and weather the storm. You acknowledge the problem and go with what you have.
In the case of Hillary Clinton, it has been particularly strange to me that so many Democrats say they don't trust her. They buy into this narrative that she "lies" all the time.
Which is patently false.
My frustrations with this wishy washiness on the part of Democrats is at an all time . . .
The Met Council has a proposal to try and get the state portion of SWLRT funding by adding to the metro share of the package. It is not a sure thing because it requires commitments from three different groups involved with area transportation.
But if it is approved, it has been accepted as a state funding source by the Federal government, which would release the Federal funds to make the project work.
So, the project has a chance to go ahead despite all the Republican opposition that has plagued transit for a long . . .
Trump's new campaign manager, Kelly Anne Conway said this in a recent interview...
"The hidden Trump vote in this country is a very significant proposition," she added.Asked if she could provide an estimate of the number of those voters, Conway said the campaign had a ballpark figure but was choosing to keep it private."I can't discuss it," she said. "It's a project we're doing internally. I call it the undercover Trump voter, but it's real."
We have been missing something. The Undercover Trump Voter (UTV) is apparently out there and the Trump campaign is . . .
As long as we are doing Clinton "scandals", let's take on another one. This time we are getting attacks on Bill for getting paid $17 million for being an "honorary" Chancellor for Laureate Universities - a for profit education institution which operates University programs all over the world with 5 entities in the US - including Walden University (a MN based school).
OK - first Laureate has some of the same issues on how they present themselves to potential clients as other For Profit entities do. In fact, Walden University has had some class action . . .
