This Is Your Minnesota Tax Dollar In Action

The “Legacy fund” transfers a whole bunch Minnesota taxpayer dollars to wildlife conservation – arguably accetable, maybe – and “the arts”.

And when I say “the arts”, I don’t mean art.  I mean the kind of s**t that Minnesota’s arts bureaucrats find acceptable.

Like this “Protect” Minnesota production. 

Yes, you should treat it as a theft.

  1. This went on deaf ears at my representative, Betty McCollum’s office, and I did bring it up with Tom Emmer.

    Just where does the money raised from the Pittman Robertson Act go to?

    Every time you buy ammo, there is a tax built in to be spent on conservation projects. I hope this money is going to habitat, youth hunting training, and trap and skeet clubs.

    But why do I feel this ain’t the case?

    A great project for someone willing to spend the time on it.

  2. My tax dollars went to support a political advocacy group intent on electing candidates pledged to deprive me of constitutionally protected rights.

    Every Real American candidate should feature it in their ads. “I’ll stop government from giving tax dollars to political hate groups who lobby against you with your own money.”

  3. it is time to recognize the Mpls/TC “arts” community as the rent-seekers they are! Given the self advertised “rich and vibrant” foundation and philanthropic community hosted in the Twin Cities, there is absolutely NO NEED for the State Arts Board to exist. Let the rent seekers suckle the teats of the private foundations and philanthropic sources available or failing that let them produce works that the public is willing to pay for without force of government.

  4. I’m confused, which is normal, but if this thing was created with tax $, why is a political lobbying group being allowed to set up a table at public showings?

    If there is a better opportunity to test the tune up our district courts have just received, I’ll be damned if I can name it.

    If this isn’t something MN gun lobbies are willing to pick up, what good are they?

  5. I have the name of a MN lawyer who loves to take on this kind of case; he’s been very successful with friends of mine and more than reasonably priced.Email me.

  6. This is a particularly nasty case since at least part of the funding for this kind of nonsense is protected in the state Constitution–it was a voter initiative, not a law passed by legis-critters.

    I had the bad fortune to see a version of “The Wizard of Oz” funded by this and put on by “Prairie Fire Theater”. It was so bad, we walked out, and were not particularly discreet about it, either. When it’s not your money, you’ll put any crap out there.
