^^ yes, these monuments were erected to honor the men who fought. I and many others found the Vietnam war offensive and just flat out wrong, shall we start tearing down those monuments?

Albert Lea will never fade away, the real estate is far to valuable and has been run by incompetences for decades. Voting in new leadership might be a problem though with all the nursing home residents in town. It might be that decades of mismanagement need to be fixed with decades of vision.

and then I go to read the fishwrap online and I see this, exactly what I was referring to,

Wtf? This is the kind of leadership we get? Some spineless mumbling idiot? Amazon is going to compete with Target and Best Buy no matter where they locate! Cheez&crackers almighty! This is the kind of thinking that's put AL in the condition they're in now. :angry:

I would love to see a study done on the actual benefit of all the tax incentives that are given out to companies everywhere.  You can start with the TIF District that was created on East Main years ago.  I don't even think any of the things it was created for are even there anymore.

How about the supposed package Wis is doing.  What will the actual payback be for the residents of Wis?

Before our state starts throwing $ at them, I want to see what we are truly going to get for that investment, and also, what the hurt difference to Target, Best Buy, and others may be if they locate in MN or if the locate elsewhere.

^ in the era of online shopping the difference between Amazon moving here or bumfk Iowa would most likely be nil.
