Guess you've never been to the entire Eastern side of the state!

I think you should probably move to Arkansas, it would probably be a better fit.

Personally, I would be glad to move to Minnesota. Lower unemployment rate than GA. Lower crime rate, better quality of life, more things to do here than many would consider.

Ha, let me guess, you visited in the dead middle of winter! I guess it's "too cold and too flat", although it's not near as flat as the Great Plains states. What a pathetic excuse. Go to Arkansas, then, and stop your whining. By no stretch of imagination is AR superior to MN excluding weather.

I think its now time we start saying "stay home" to refugees from the middle east/north africa who want to come here. its pretty scary how these people become radicalized, even more scary knowing these are fellow Minnesotans.

TRUST ME, most are not "fellow Minnesotans," they are 150% for their country, first.....

Well, I prefer Minnesota to Arkansas

Lower murder rate than Arkansas. Minnesota = 1.8 murders per 100,000. Arkansas = 5.9 murders per 100,000
Lower rape rate. Minnesota = 64.6 rapes per 100,000. Arkansas = 78.7 rapes per 100,000
Lower violent crime rate over all. Minnesota = 230.9 Arkansas = 469.1

How would you assess the man who was born in this nation to American parents who fought for ISIS?

your statistics are most likely referring to the Little Rock area I wouldn't live in Little Rock if they paid me....the whole country is aware that Little Rock is one of the most crime riddled cities in the USA.... I am talking about northwestern Arkansas or around the Fayetteville Springdale Bentonville area which is a fast-growing gorgeous area with beautiful mountains and hills and lakes and rivers..... when I got out out of the Minneapolis Airport and had to take the light rail wow what an experience that was a pretty rough ride to say the least...... I also couldn't tell if St. Cloud was little Somalia. I agree Minnesota is a fine state but I don't think I'll be moving there anytime soon so enjoy God bless the great state of Minnesota. Plus I agree Winona is the prettiest part of the state...but as well, living in freezing cold temps for 7 or 8 months out of the year, doesn't attract me. Just my opinion and view.
