"When it comes to our new proposed twenty cents a gallon hike in state gasoline tax (which will make our gas as expensive as jet fuel), Timmy the Taxer had this to say: "'This new tax increase will give us the best transportation in the world.'"
Someone asked me a couple of weeks ago if I thought there was any Tim Walz remorse as of yet. My answer? "None by me, as I did not vote for the phony". Phony? Come on Bird, sticks and stones! No, he is now, and always has been, a phony. How the good people of CD 1 got cowed into voting for this guy for a few terms, is only slightly less confusing than how the state of Minnesota voted for him in 2018. He and his platforms are as original as Tums commercials.
Now Timmy is starting to feel his oats. Enough with the wedding - time for the honeymoon. It was time for Timmy to get undressed and show his stuff. For those of us who had been following his career, seeing him naked was no surprise. All that is under his veneer is nothing but taxes, more taxes, and followed by fees. For those who Timmy had hoodwinked during the election (and there are legions), all you can hear right now from some is a collective gasp. A gasp as in WE HAVE BEEN HAD!
Today, Timmy the Taxer pulled the curtain back to expose some more of his new taxes and fees. I guess Timmy fell asleep when it was reported that Minnesota was the nation's least tax friendly state. He must have, because normal Governors would have just about declared an emergency to fix that issue. Not Timmy. He has more new taxes and fees than Minnesota has inches of snow on the ground. And everyone of them will be a back breaker. But who cares? Timmy's base will not have to pay them - only the producers.
Today in the paper, Timmy the Taxer told his best whopper yet. I know, it is hard to beat the ones he has already told. When it comes to our new proposed twenty cents a gallon hike in state gasoline tax (which will make our gas more expensive as jet fuel), Timmy the Taxer had this to say: "This new tax increase will give us the best transportation system in the world." What? Are you smoking hemp Timmy? Is this the Onion reporting this, or our hometown newspaper? The best transportation system in the world? You might need one of those cognitive tests which I have to take every year Timmy!
Just like when I say, "Thank God for Donald J. Trump is our President!", I also need to say, "Thank God for the Republicans holding the Minnesota Senate." Love them or not, the Minnesota Senate is keeping this lunatic at bay with his new taxes and fees.
How will this end? Poorly, if we don't keep reminding folks we elected a lemon. In 2020, we need to not only keep the Senate, but also retake the House.
