I find it interesting that I can’t locate a dollar-by-dollar line item expenditure spreadsheet on those who, with no experience, guidance or education received dollars on behalf of the thousands of tornado victims in north Minneapolis. Foundations, ad-hoc non-profit groups and local poverty-pimps in support of the DFL political plantation have made next to impossible to learn the truth about the inner workings of an already failed community engagement.

Today (Tuesday), marks the first anniversary of the tornado that touched down in north Minneapolis displacing thousands of homeowners and renters. In the beginning, the city of Minneapolis reported that it would take over $100 million to bring north Minneapolis back to pre-tornado conditions. But as we all know, there was a storm in north Minneapolis long before the tornado.
The storm presented itself as a lack of opportunities for residents; no economic development and a sinkhole of non-profit non-sense in creating programs that to this day can’t keep up with the demand of jobs, milk, gas or bread – let’s not forget a good education.
Someone brought the bullies to the playground in hope they would control the animal need, want and desire and kill the urge for success. Over the last year, residents of north Minneapolis came to find out the change in the neighborhood was only for a few. There were no fundraisers at the Mall of America. People that were paid thousands for events failed simply because they weren’t working in their areas of expertise.
I guess it’s real easy to jack-off millions when it’s not yours.
