Pawternity vs. Paternity: A Slap in the Face to Fatherhood

Believe it or not, their is pawternity leave in our world today, even when paternity leave exists in the dark ages. As a father, I consider the idea of pawternity a slap in the face to fatherhood, and a poorly written joke. Shouldn’t America, along with its companies, focus on embracing a model that promotes, encourages, and allows strong families, allows fathers to be fathers? Perhaps it is time I get a dog and start reaping the benefits of this privilege.  Or maybe we need to start respecting the dignity and importance of actual human fathers every where, instead of making the idea of them a monstrosity of a joke.

Lobbyists and the MMBA control Sunday Liquor Sales in MN

This association, the MMBA, controls liquor sales in Minnesota, which creates a business monopoly for certain liquor stores, and allows, legally, through oppressive law, the squandering of our local economy, which also inhibits the ability for millions of Minnesotans to vote with their dollar.

We pay taxes seven days a week, why can’t we vote with our dollar seven days a week?

What the MMBA does is pay legislators to take competition out of liquor sales in Minnesota, enabling them to control the market- essentially creating a business monopoly for specific corporations, while restricting others.  This monopoly makes it easy for those few to make a profit, while limiting and sanctioning newcomers, and those willing to work throughout the week (specifically on Sunday).

“Each year, Minnesota’s municipal beverage facilities generate approximately $300 million in sales and contribute approximately $20 million in net-profits to various city funds.” -MMBA

What does “various city funds” mean?  Is that a euphemism for Legislators?  Or payment for the creation, and survival of laws which benefit the companies donating the funds?

Minnesota legislators are controlled by money not voter interest.  Put Sunday Sales on the ballot and see where Minnesotans really stand on their issues.

Make sure to have a look at all of the corporate sponsors which control the local government, at:

Be sure to thank them for limiting your freedoms, and promoting, ironically, big government control over the citizens of Minnesota.
