How's Your Home Budget Doing Minnesota?

The Minnesota state gas tax went up 2 cents per gallon today with another 3.5 cents per gallon on tap by October 1, 2008. This is on top of an average 8% increase in food prices [Read more] so far in this the year of our Lord 2008. Since all food must be transported to the store, we can safely count on even higher prices due to the gas tax increase. And let us not forget the food price increases driven by the government mandated use of ethanol (also known as the corn farmers cash cow program).

I wish I could say this was all one cruel April Fool's Day joke but that is not the case. These increases are real and are impacting every pocketbook and household budget in Minnesota. Regardless of race, creed, gender or financial status, each and every one of us are paying the ever increasing higher prices. Thanks to government taxes and government mandated programs we are all trying to figure out how to stretch our personal budgets to cover the added expenses of every item transported to the store or that is made using corn products.

So tell me Minnesota, how are you liking your DFL/socialist controlled legislature now? Are those of you who voted for big spending liberals still happy with your choice? Is your incoming increasing at the same pace as your expenses?

Wake up Minnesota. Isn't it time to tell the DFL/socialist party that enough is enough?

I didn't vote for these greedy rulers, but I sure am paying for it.

What do I get for it? Loss of my hard earned money and property.

Do they care? Only as much as to take even more for me to line their pockets.

Nothing but legalized theft by people with no soul nor conscience.

"Nothing but legalized theft by people with no soul nor conscience."

I am sure the DFL/socialist polpigs will tell you that they act only for the good of all and that they uniquely know what is best for you and me and our neighbors.

Truth is that they have an obsessive need to control and will do what ever they have to gain and maintain their control and power. There is no sacrifice to great on their minds -- as long as it's making the sacrifice.

Remember that the polpigs responsible for the new taxes and the resulting price increases are the very same 'servants of the people' who spawned a massive welfare system, who throw billions of TAX dollars at a failing public education system and who vote themselves healthy raises and per diem at their whim.

Well, I just want to thank these greedy people for taking even more of my money. I've been trying to save my extra income in case I lose my job. By the end of Oct, that's a very real chance.

So, instead of me saving my own money so I can keep my house & stuff, the gov't takes it and pisses it away. They keep taking more & more. Then they create a gov't program to "help" the unemployed.


These people have no conscience nor a soul.

the dfl/socialist conclave excels in three things

1. spending other folks money on their won pet project

2. spending other folks money to buy votes

3. lying

sadly the alternative party, the IR is not much better but if you hold your nose, voting for them at least will keep the tax increasers out of office.
