Tim Utz's Views on the Internet
Well citizens of Minnesota HD 41-B, more of our tax dollars are at work again. On the surface, for some folks at the DNR, news flash, may seem a great idea.
I would agree, perhaps, that having internet access in God’s country could be a good idea. The issue again is the purpose of state government and spending. The DNR article claims the Internet service at Itasca State Park is free. Folks, nothing government does is free. The state took our money from Minnesota HD 41-B (remember government never produces, only consumes) and spent our resources to benefit a specific group. I contend the benefiting group is not even needy, but privileged and prosperous.
Suppose the Itasca Internet service had to be self-supporting. Perhaps they could use a parking meter type of machine where folks could “pay per use”. Would consumers pay the actual cost of having Internet service available in an up-North wildlife refuge? I have my doubts, or a private entity would already have approached the DNR and be making a profit.
This serves as yet another example of our legislative leadership, both Democrat and Republican, continuing the exorbitant, frivolous, and unending spending as our state's internal economy continues to slow. Folks, our state and national governments have huge economic, monetary, and spending problems. Minnesota House of Representatives District 41-B needs someone to carry the torch, not politics, for her citizens, thus I am applying for the job as Minnesota House Representative.
