    The Democrats created this monster by letting their lunatic fringe wing get away with their nonsense. They purposely enraged all the demographic disparate groups that make up their Party. What they failed to do before they created this monster was figure out how to keep it under control and how to turn it off when it goes haywire.

    In the end, this is what happens when honesty and fairness are compromised for political expediency. When the truth prevails, and the frauds are exposed, all that’s left to do is rage and scream inside while tearing up a speech that Americans are rallying behind. Here’s a tip for Pelosi. Start with a clean slate. Abandon the dirty politics—the lies and hate—and start working for the American people who deserve better than constant sour grapes tactics that ultimately fail.

    From the day he entered the race, Joe Biden was the great hope of the Democratic establishment to spare them from the horrifying prospect of a 2020 race between The Donald and Bernie Sanders. Today, that same establishment wants Joe out of the race.

    Sanders is not without his own problems. Not only is he anathema to the establishment, he cannot wholly unite his party’s left-wing until his senatorial soulmate Elizabeth Warren gets out. Though she ran a poor fourth in New Hampshire, Warren is also going to Nevada to offer herself as a unity candidate.

    But as Biden’s hour is up, so is Warrens. And if she is not out of the race before Super Tuesday on March 3, she risks being beaten in her own home state of Massachusetts.

    When you have unions telling their members about Bernie’s ideas and how they’re bad—you know it’s bad. Medicare for All is ruinously expensive and it’s just not a winning agenda item. In Pennsylvania, some top union leaders were also adamant that they would tell their people to stay home or vote for Trump should Sanders or Warren become the 2020 Democratic nominee. In the Keystone State, Sanders’ commitment to a universal ban on fracking, which will kill hundreds of thousands of jobs in the must-win state, is just a bridge too far. .

    2nd Floor, City Hall February 6, 2020
    Mason City, Iowa 6:00 P.M.

    MINUTES
    COUNCIL WORKSESSION

    The City Council of the City of Mason City, Iowa, met in Worksession pursuant to law and rules of said Council, in the 2nd Floor Conference Room of City Hall at 6:00 P.M., on February 6, 2020. The meeting was called to order by the Mayor and on roll being called, there were present, Mayor in the Chair Schickel and the following Council Members: Adams, Jaszewski, Lee, Thoma, Symonds, Masson (leaves at 6:21 p.m.). Absent: None.

    1. Final Operating Budget: Jacobson provided a broad overview of the FY 20-21 General Fund Summary and mentioned they were still working with the Museum with respect to the Compensation Study. He stated the majority of increases were Capital, however Finance did have a slight increase in wages. He stated within the General Fund there was a surplus and that was due to $250,000 of backfill. In addition, he mentioned the Library had $70,000 surplus from the Hotel/Motel transfer. The Museum was going to use some of their Reserves for a project and the Airport had a carry-over project. Cemetery was also using 10% of Reserves for Capital and Tort was using $20,000 of Reserves. Hotel/Motel had a transfer to the General Fund and Unified TIF had expenses in prior years and that had to be made up.

    OUTSIDE ORGANIZATIONS: Jacobson stated the City was providing $260,000 to the Outside Organizations which included a $5,000 increase to Main Street Mason City and a $5,000 increase to NICEDC, noting they were going back to a dollar amount allocation for the North Iowa Corridor Economic Development Commission.

    HOTEL/MOTEL FUNDING: Jacobson stated they were bumping the funding level to $660,000.

    HOTEL/MOTEL RESERVE PROJECTIONS: Jacobson stated the balance in reserves projected for FY 2021 was $40,000.

    HOTEL/MOTEL COLLECTIONS: Jacobson provided a review.

    NEW PROPERTY TAX ASKINGS: Jacobson stated the City was actually getting approximately $40,000 less in 810 Levy dollars for FY21.

    TAX SUMMARY: Jacobson stated the FY 20 Levy was at $13.72 while FY 21 was at $14.38. He stated Tort Liability increased the Levy as well as Police and Fire and Employee retirement, (411 Medical went down which reduced taxes) and Debt Service Levy went up $0.57.

    Regarding the Debt Schedule repayment for FY21 Jacobson stated he had all RCR Debt highlighted, advising RCR Debt was $1 million in Debt Service Levy and the $0.57 increase in Debt Service Levy was attributed to the RCR project. However, that would change in the future as additional TIF monies and State Tax Credits came in and the City would increase the use of Hotel/Motel Tax. He also pointed out the City would need to issue additional debt for the skywalk and hotel, but that was in the beginning stage.

    Burnett commented that the $1 million would free up other money that was committed and that would increase in the out year with Jacobson stating they expected TIF to go up because the Arena would be on the tax rolls for FY 22.

    TOTAL VALUATION: Jacobson stated the total valuation increased by $8 million and explained the rollback was limited and the City did not get the entire amount anymore.

    COMPARISON OF TAXES: Jacobson provided an overview, advising for a $100,000 home the increase was 1.33% for 20-21 versus 1.55% for FY2019-20 or a $10.39 increase.

    REVIEWED CAPITAL FUNDING NEEDS AND OUTSTANDING DEBT: Jacobson stated they would be issuing RCR in late spring or early June.

    DEBT CAPACITY: Jacobson stated we were at 55% of our capacity and future capacity would be at 48-50% with additional debt issued and current debt paid down.

    Conclusion: Jacobson stated there would be a slight increase in the budget and all the Capital was included and Council would be setting the dates at the February 18, 2020 Council Meeting.

    Masson asked if the property taxes were going up with Jacobson concurring stating 1.3%

    Masson questioned how much of the tax increase was attributed to RCR with Jacobson stated most of it.

    Masson asked how much of the $33.00 was attributed to RCR with Jacobson stating approximately 70% of the increase was related to RCR

    Adams referenced a $100,000 home and stated $7.00 was going towards RCR and asked if the increase was higher because there was no hotel yet with Jacobson stating it took 18 months for the valuation to kick in.

    6:21 Masson Left Council Chambers.

    Lee asked about capacity and what it had to be at to make Moody’s (Bond Rating Company) nervous with Jacobson stating they were past being nervous with RCR and had already taken that debt issuance into consideration, pointing out Moody’s had looked at valuation and the Fund balance on the Fund side and it was close to $5 million and had incorporated it into the rating. He also stated he did not anticipate the rate dropping, pointing out in 3 years there would be a huge drop in overall debt.

    Burnett also mentioned Moody’s was looking to see if the City was hitting the marks of what they wanted to do while still building reserves and following through on a plan with a solid economy in the community, emphasizing those were the things they really cared about.

    Jacobson mentioned under the Water Fund he had added an additional employee to the Cashiers area, explaining it just wasn’t working to have only two people and this way they could keep the counter open from 8:00 to 4:30. He also commented on the 3 Firefighters that were added this year.

    Adams asked if they were covered by a grant with Jacobson stating 75% of it was covered by a grant.

    Jaszewski asked about the Library and the new employee with Markwalter providing an explanation.

    Adams referenced New Property Tax Askings and wondered if alternative plans had been made with Markwalter stating they would be using reserves to help with that as well as donors.

    Adams asked how much was in the Library Trust Reserves with Jacobson stating $554,000.

    Adams asked if with the adjustments the Library could be kept open 6 days a week with Markwalter stating absolutely there would be no changes to service.

    Adjourn: The Mayor adjourned the meeting at 6:32 P.M.

    We need tariffs that are proportionate to the inequities in wages, regulations, subsides, taxes and tariffs in the country where the goods were actually produced and or where we’re importing them from – Including country of origin, even when imported from another 3rd party country – We could then use the money raised by these tariffs to help companies build state of the art manufacturing plants here in the USA, which would create more jobs here at home for US citizens, which would then in turn increase our income tax revenue.

          That is the only way to keep the prices down so Americans will buy. Who is going to foot the bill for these “state of the art” plants,because we know the companies won’t. They already have these, overseas.
          By the time you pay union wages, so you can “have good wages and benefits”, the companies can’t afford to make whatever here in the US. That, obviously didn’t understand, makes things cost more.
          So, now wages have to go up. Now, everything has to cost more to pay these wages. The landlord wants to clear so much a month on his rentals, his percentage went down, got to raise rent.
          Wages need to go up, so we can afford to buy these goods made in the “state of the art” facilities.

          AS I said, still cheaper to make them overseas.

    Establishment puppet politicians, corrupt manipulative media pundits and their globalist masters can put their BS in a box, gift wrap it and even put a bow on top, but fortunately most Americans can still smell what’s inside.

    The globalist establishment obviously had a vested interest in wanting Hillary to win, especially communist China. If anyone really thought that evil-unethical-disingenuous-dishonest-power-monger-puppet Hillary Clinton was ever going to do anything to help the American People, the real American economy or the security of our country, they were sadly mistaken and delusional – And Bernie Sanders lost whatever little credibility that he had by endorsing and supporting her.

    Many people forget that it was Bill Clinton that granted Communist China the designation of “Most Favored Trade Status” and opened up the floodgates – And both Bill and Hillary were actively involved in it during their visit there. Let’s face it, if it were up to the corrupt manipulative media, both parties and their globalist masters, Hillary “Madame Secretary” Clinton would’ve long since have been anointed queen by now. The globalist establishment obviously had a vested interest in wanting Hillary to win, especially communist China.

    As Sanders explains it, his tax will specifically target 180,000 households. It will not apply to their income–which is already subject to the federal income tax–but to their assets and savings.

    There it is right in front of our faces and still people will vote for him because they hate one man that actually loves this country. It amazes me that they have so much hate that they would rather their children and grandchildren live in a socialist country that will take away the freedoms that the Trump hater have enjoyed all their life. What a great creative way to kill any incentive to better yourself or for future ideas to be of benefit except to the government that will control all things and the payer will have no rights left. This is the path to a communist dictatorship. And they call Trump the authoritarian.

        One of the big reasons that businesses left is the Democrats kept raising their taxes. Another is the strangle hold that unions have, because of rules set up by the Democrats. (We are not talking about wages, hours, time off.) We are talking open/closed shop.

        The cronies of the Democrats have been dumbing down our school systems for decades, we don’t have the skilled workforce(unless you apprentice through a union).

    Guest speaker Thomas Dean will present “Green Fire – Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for our Time.” Dean is Senior Presidential Writer/Editor at the University of Iowa and is trained as a Land Ethic Leader through the Aldo Leopold Foundation.
    This program includes a screening of the Emmy Award-winning Aldo Leopold documentary, “Green Fire,” and a discussion of the film and Leopold’s land ethic. “Green Fire” is the first full-length documentary film ever made about legendary environmentalist Aldo Leopold, author of A Sand County Almanac, who was born and raised in Burlington, Iowa.
    The film describes the formation of Leopold’s idea through his life and experiences, exploring how it changed one man and later permeated through all arenas of conservation today.
    The program will be followed by a catered lunch and social time. Cost is $5.00 for nature center members and $7.00 for nonmembers. Please call 423-5309 by February 24 to register.

    Independent newspapers are struggling. The estimated total U.S. daily newspaper circulation including both print and digital in 2019 fell 18% from the prior year to 28.6 million for weekday, according to the Research Center for Journalism and Media.

    New York Times executive editor Dean Banquet bleakly predicted the demise of “most local newspapers in America” except for ones bought by democrat billionaires. The Washington Post and Los Angeles Times, both national publications,owned by democrats, are doing well. The Boston Globe, Minneapolis Star-Tribune and Las Vegas Review-Journal are among other democratic American newspapers that appear to have steadied themselves after being sold to these political minded individuals. Note the democratic based buyers own over 87% of today’s media, including broadcast, cable and newspaper sources.

    Black, white, Hispanic, whatever-Americans – are seeing unprecedented successes under a president who said he wouldn’t forget them. Imagine the possibilities if those in Washington opposed to the president put aside their personal animus, ceased looking for ways to stop him, and realized that the successes he is achieving are successes for the American people. Imagine what could be accomplished if Congress and the president started working together. Those once forgotten could flourish even more.

      You like Trump, believe “working together” means accepting everything you want while giving up everything we want. Maybe if Trump would abandon his “I can do anything because I am President” attitude he would get a little more respect from Americans.

        He has the respect of real Americans. The others don’t count because they won’t be here long.

    And, here we go again! The Democrats are so afraid that Trump really will continue draining the swamp, they can’t think clearly.

    The Trump tax cuts and the repeal of piles of job-killing regulations have grown the economy and reduced unemployment to levels not seen in nearly 50 years. Moreover, minorities and women are seeing some of the greatest benefit, experiencing some of their lowest unemployment rates ever. On top of all that, America’s lowest income earners have seen their wages grow faster (in percentage terms) than any other income group.

      Like every other stat, the Trump handlers are cooking the books on this. Even if that were true, low wages are the problem. As long as people can buy secondhand and fix up, or make, things to sell on eBay, Etsy, Facebook marketplace, etc., work from home at their own hours, and make more than $12 or $13 an hour, they’re not going to take a crappy job from a shitty employer who treats them badly and won’t provide any benefits.

    Black Americans are part of the forgotten, too. For decades, politicians have repeatedly promised urban communities good jobs, good schools, and safe neighborhoods. Instead, they have delivered policies that more often increased crime, degraded educational standards, and made it harder to get work.
