Star Tribune: More Minnesotans using state assistance at Minnesota farmers markets
It is a wonderful day when consumers realize they can purchase the products they need right here in the state of Minnesota, from Minnesota.
As a former employee of a grocery chain I took note of the amount of imported trash people bought (from out of state: import), it was insane. I never knew Minnesota’s taxpayers were paying for consumers to buy soda, cheap processed foods, and basically any manufactured garbage, with low nutritional value, that a corporate food manufacturer could place in their hands.
I had little faith in the system, and it may be still happening around the metro; however, this is a sign of change. It gives me satisfaction to see that people are voting with their dollar, or the taxpayer’s dollar, locally.
The manifest function is acquiring food and nutrition from a local source, the latent function is promoting local economy, enacting less external cost, and consuming goods within our living proximity. These actions are positive for Minnesota’s agricultural, societal, environmental and economical growth.

Bowing to AIPAC, Senate unanimously passes resolution supporting Israel
“The Senate yesterday unanimously passed a resolution backed by the Israel lobby group AIPAC expressing support for Israel’s attack on Gaza and saying not a word about Palestinian deaths.”
Why do we fund oversea wars when students incur debt locally? Politicians pay for this sort of activity with our tax dollars. What does Al Franken say about the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians?
