Potentially Unconstitutional Garbage Service in St Paul Found to be Potentially Unconstitutional by Citizens Who May Have Read The U.S. Constitution at Least Once in the Last Year

ST PAUL, MN — The recent rollout of citywide government operated garbage collection program smacks of potential unconstitutionality, offering a single service provider, infringing upon freedom of speech of its citizens while operating, potentially, as a monopoly.

Some residents have said they enjoy the varying size options on containers, offered with previous providers: small, medium, and large, respectively, though, with winter being overly extreme because of global climate warming change, the service quality has been lackluster from the new service provider.

Had a citizen had their first amendment rights fully intact, they could choose from better quality providers, instead of just one, and be able to use their voice to vote with their dollar. Furthermore, a diverse provider option could provide service for those who choose to opt-out in attempt to promote a zero-waste option.

Certain things are a waste of time, reading the US Constitution is not one of those things. Citizens reserve the right under the Constitution to voice their free speech, even in selecting and employing a garbage service provider. The first amendment has jurisdiction throughout all of America, for all citizens, even regarding our trash and who takes it.

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.

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