ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton and House Speaker Kurt Zellers say they’re ready to help after a tornado killed one person and injured at least 29 others on a path that ripped through north Minneapolis.

The Democratic governor and top House Republican viewed the damage Monday with Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar and U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison.

Dayton says the state will do “everything possible” to support the city’s recovery. He says he is prepared to consider a special legislative session to pass disaster relief.

Zellers says the Legislature stands ready to help.

The tornado followed a nearly five-mile path from St. Louis Park through north Minneapolis into Fridley.

    Well…first lets dip into Ratso Rybak’s $multi-million dollar fund he uses for $50,000 drinking fountains! Surely we can forgo these boondoggles?!?!?!

    I’m just curious where the people decrying this as more “big government spending” are hiding right now. Gee, maybe it actually makes sense to pay taxes and support the community when there’s a need? Nah… That’s silly talk.

    President Barack Obama is no longer a “blessing” to the USA! When he goes there to visit the devastation in Joplin, make sure to remind Obama that these events would have been diverted away, but only if he had kept his promises, (to be beneficial to the poor and the needy); and, since Obama won’t be beneficial to us VOLUNTARILY, then he must be COMPELLED to be Beneficial to us after many disasters do leave us dead and dying in the street. Why, because Obama brought this upon us by his own REBELLIOUS Betrayal, and by Selling-Us-Out to the Corruption and Treachery of the Republican ILLUMINATI Party, and by catering to the Profit Addiction of Wall Street Banks, and by feeding us to the Criminal GREED of every Corporation that is Enforcing economic slavery upon us… Remind Obama that his Cheating TRAITOR Policies and Practices are what is causing the floods, the tornados, and the Hurricanes in the USA. Be sure to Tell Barack and Michelle Obama that the Power of Heaven is ANGRY at the Obamas, that the Powers of heaven is Speaking to the Obamas, and the more the Obamas ignore their MESSAGE, the worse everyone will suffer, and the full force of nature will continue to increase….
