Sioux City Journal Covers a TIR Article they Refused to Print.
Bret Hayworth of the Sioux City Journal wrote an article on his blog about Brent Hoffman’s op-ed piece that was published on The Iowa Republican this week. I find it interesting that Hayworth wrote about it since his very own newspaper refused to print Hoffman’s letter to the editor. The only reason it was sent to TIR is because they refused to print it.
I do appreciate Hayworth describing The Iowa Republican as “flourishing” though!
Borrowing Money to Pave Streets Will Help Solve the Nearly $1 Billion Budget Gap
Well, that’s what Governor Culver is saying. State Auditor Dave Vaudt pointed out this week that 13 cents out of every dollar spent by the state is from one-time money, like the federal stimulus package. In past years, that number has been around one cent per dollar. Auditor Vaudt pointed out that the budget in fiscal year 2011 will have a huge gap that will either be filled by raising taxes or drastically reducing state spending.
Culver basically called Vaudt’s statement a partisan attack and went on to say that his I-Jobs proposal will help balance the FY 2011 budget. I think I’ll listen to the CPA on this one.
Howard “The Scream” Dean
Dr. Dean was in Iowa and had the following to say about Iowa allowing gay marriage.
“This has just become a non-issue in states where there’s a lot of neighborliness. Because even if people don’t think, for religious reasons, that gay people ought to be able to get married, they’re also respectful of their neighbors who may have a gay person in their family.”
So, if it’s suck a non-issue, why was he summoned to Iowa for a One Iowa fundraiser, and why are Speaker Murphy and Senator Gronstal afraid to let their members vote on the matter?
Dick Cheney Unleashed
Former Vice President Dick Cheney continues to disagree with the Obama administration over foreign policy issues, and now, he has let it be known that he was in favor of letting GM enter bankruptcy sooner instead of pumping billions of dollars into the struggling auto maker.
Maybe I’m the only one, but I appreciate Cheney’s candidness since leaving office.
