"In the Bag In Fargo" Posted: Apr 4, 2013 7:03 PM by Pat Shingleton Topics: The Red River. Flooding. Sand Bagging
April in Fargo, North Dakota, includes a "right-of-Spring" that involves the flooding of the Red River. The Red River identifies the state line between North Dakota and Minnesota and following the winter snow-melt the river rapidly soars. To the north, the river also flows through Winnipeg, Canada, where flood control structures were constructed by the Canadian government in the ‘60s. In North Dakota, rather than spend state money to fix the flooding, un-paid children assist city officials by preparing thousands of sand bags. High school students are dismissed from getting an education to work as unpaid labor for one of America's most prosperous states.
Forecasters are predicting another 2009 episode where the river reached 41 feet and in ten days the river will be at flood stage.

Still listening to Ed Schultz, eh? Someone needs to teach him: Slaves are forced to work. The folks in ND all are volunteers.

No wonder MSNBC dumped him.

unpaid child manual labor is slavery. Ed was not dumped - he has 4 hours on saturday & sunday

I'm curious, how much of those four hours a week has he spent on the Kermit Gosnell trial? Versus how much time he's spent on say, slave labor in ND or the Rutgers basketball coach.

So when I sold bbq sandwiches to raise money for my elementary school, I was a slave? Reparations!

So the community pitches in to take care of what is needed?

Really, we are now slamming the State Bank?

"Bensdad"... pulling at the heartstrings, even with the name.

How very very very easy to see through.

Spam away, Mr allegedly "never been to a Dem meeting in my life"... haha ya right.

I've knocked many a door and made many a call for the Party what's your fucking problem with that?

I dont have a problem with that, I have a problem with people who either: A) Are allegedly ardent supporters and have never found the time in their 50+ years of existence to volunteer

B) Say that because they are obviously working for them and dont want their cover blown.

Now we are attacking public banks. Ive made calls and knocked on doors for them too. Two elections was enough getting played for me. How many decades is that for you now?

Holy miss moly we got a live one!!!

Wait until Bensdad finds out Elizabeth Warren uses unpaid interns. He's gonna be pissed.
