Ladies and Gentlemen, yours truly – the ol’ TwoPutter – is Guest Hosting tonight’s Wednesday Edition of “Minnesota Matters” on AM-950 KTNF, The Voice of Minnesota. I’ll be joined in studio by ace field reporter and analyst, Dusty Trice!

In addition to talking about breaking news, and absentee Gov. TBag getting caught with his hands in the cookie jar, we’ll be talking again with Mike Tikkanen, author of “Invisible Children (The American cycle of abuse and its cost).” Mike Tikkanen is the founder of Kid’s At Risk Action Group (KARA), a non-profit devoted to protecting and advocating for the rights of abused children. If you are concerned about the least among us, and those that Mike advocates for – children – are just that, this is a show you won’t want to miss.

Especially because the following quote is sure to be discussed:

“Children who are victims of failed personal responsibility are not my problem, nor are they the problem for our government.” — Majority Leader Tim Pawlenty, April 2001 – as quoted in the Aitkin Independent Newspaper (entire column available here)

So, again, tune in the radio today to AM-950, or listen live on your computer, here.

In case you missed last night’s “Minnesota Matters – Wednesday Edition” on AM-950 KTNF, you can listen to it, here! IMNSHO, it was a fascinating conversation, and I’d like to thank Toni and Colonel Joe for sharing their thoughts and answering questions!

One of the highights were both Tomi Backdahl, State Coordinator of the Minnesota Tea Party, and LTC (Ret.) Joe Repya clearly repudiating and distancing themselves from the following quotes:

_ Tom Emmer quote: “I don’t think you can call yourself a freedom-loving American and be a Democrat.” Marshall Independent, Sept 2009

_ Tim Pawlenty quote: “Children who are victims of failed personal responsibility are not my problem, nor are they the problem for our government.” — Majority Leader Tim Pawlenty, April 2001 – as quoted in the Aitkin Independent Newspaper

During the first segment, we played “False Or False Witness!” where one lucky caller (“Bill” from Mpls) correctly identified that the quote I read actually was uttered by Michele Bachmann (“Bill” answered: “False Witness!”). The fabulous prize Bill won, courtesy of show sponsor Common Good Books, was one copy of Bill Prendergast’s exceptional comic book: “False Witness! The Michele Bachmann Story (Volume 3)”!!!

The Bachmann MotorMouth Overdrive quote I read, is below the fold!

And one question we asked Toni, State Coordinator for the Minnesota Tea Party Patriots was submitted via comment here, on MPP – here’s that question!

I’d ask….

If the Tea Party guy actually realized the real Tea Partiers were protesting a tax CUT. The tea partiers were actually protesting the take over by a multi-national corporation, the British East India company. The tax cut made tea super cheap, allowing the British East India (Walmart) the ability to undercut all the American merchants.

So, I would ask the Tea Party guy if he is just as afraid of the corporate take over of America as he is of the government take over.

Thanks,
Alec

Well, thank YOU for submitting that question, Alec!!!

Also, LTC (Ret.) Joe Repya discussed his candidacy for Governor, and clarified that there is a big difference between “suspend” and “end” – and for the record, Colonel Repya has “suspended” his campaign.

So again, if you missed it, you can still listen to it, by linking here!

Al from Minneapolis won the “False Or False Witness!” game; here was the quote:

“And this is one of the very happy days that we have, when we can bring some federal money to a great project that’s been in in the works…wait….I know enough not to fight with a dump truck. He wins every time. This is one of the very happiest days that we have, when we can go ahead and add some sweetener to the pot to try and do something really good.” Michele Bachmann on August 25, 2009 bringing federal money to build more hangers and expand the airport in Paynesville

And you can watch Bachmann MotorMouth Overdrive say it – let’s look!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen, yours truly – the ol’ TwoPutter – is Guest Hosting tonight’s Wednesday Edition of “Minnesota Matters” on AM-950 KTNF, The Voice of Minnesota! And we’re going to have two very special guests in studio – Toni Backdahl, the State Coordinator for the Minnesota Tea Party Patriots, and LTC(Ret.) Joe Repya, who recently suspended his bid for Governor under the Independence Party banner.

It should be a fascinating conversation, and I’m sure one of the subjects discussed will be Former Senator Dean Barkley’s invitation for the Tea Party to take over the IP Party.

The Listener Call-In Number is 952-946-6205, or, if you have a question you’d like me to ask of either Ms. Backdahl or Colonel Repya, submit it below in the comments section!
