September 2nd, 2015 — Denny Sanford, Education funding, Sex, Sioux Falls
If you think the High School Activities Association had problems before with their trans-gender policy, give it a few years;
In 2014, Sanford first told KELOLAND News about Z, the mascot of the Sanford Harmony Program. Z is a Martian from a planet that doesn’t have boys and girls. He’s supposed to start an open dialogue so boys and girls get a chance to talk openly about gender.
Apparently on the planet Z the storks deliver the newborns. Didn’t we have enough problems with the Tele-Tubbies? While I think it is good to teach kids that boys and girls can grow up to do whatever they want to and to work together, I’m not sure how an asexual alien from the planet Z is going to get this message across? Or how this is going to end divorces? I have often joked if you want to end divorces don’t get married to begin with. Why do we always have to travel to cartoon fantasy land to teach kids things about LIFE?
I bet Denny got the idea from an old Star Trek episode.

Sioux Falls Health Director, Jill Franken was kind enough to call me today about statements I made during public testimony about providing FREE condoms. She told me that there are many FREE condom distribution sites throughout the city including the community health clinic. She also said it is partially funded through State and Federal grants.
Now only if I could get a map of these sites! Maybe we could do a future water bill insert?

Like a texting or cell phone ban in cars, education goes farther then laws. For years I have advocated that one of the quickest ways to reduce abortions, unwanted pregnancies and STD’s would be to have FREE condoms to anyone that wanted them. With all the money we spend (taxes) on free STD testing and welfare, medicade and SNAP for unwanted children, why not spend the money up front for prevention and education? Our rising number of STD cases in South Dakota is NO accident, it is the result of a passive society when it comes to sex.
And when I say FREE condoms, I mean EVERYWHERE. Not just at the clinic or schools, but at bus stops, grocery stores, heck even churches! Our infatuation with sex being a dirty thing has only made more people sick and dying from sexual diseases. I don’t think FREE condoms are any different then clean drinking water.
FREE condoms won’t promote more sexual relations, it will however promote safe sex if you choose to have a sexual relation and I believe would save taxpayers billions.
December 4th, 2012 — Sex, Sioux Falls
First, I will start out by saying that one of the main reasons STD’s have risen in Sioux Falls is because of the lack of education and a puritanical view of teenagers and young adults abstaining from sex. It just isn’t happening, and we need to face the facts. Still it doesn’t stop people from blaming others;
“It’s because the media sells sex,” said Caitlin Hicks, 22, a coffee shop worker in Sioux Falls.
Well, Caitlin, I certainly cannot remember the last time a TV commercial or a newspaper ad gave me an itchy scratchy, but I will be on the lookout. We can blame the media for a lot things these days, mostly mis-information, but saying they contribute to STD’s is silly. In fact I have never gotten one. Why? First I believe receiving sex ed at an early age (I think my first class was in 4th or 5th grade) better prepared me when I became a teenager. And I remember seeing images of certain STD’s in a HS science class. WOW, that will open your eyes. I am also a firm believer of ‘planning’ pregnancies. Too often couples just kind of fly by the seat of their pants and don’t really put any thought in the repercussions of having an unplanned child. I also think demographics have a lot to do with our sudden rise in STD’s. Working class and lower income people tend to be less educated when it comes to sex and it’s repercussions.
As a person who has been single my entire adult life, I can tell you I have seen and heard just about every scenario possible, and if you think people are getting safer with age, you are wrong. My best advice to anyone starting a relationship with someone is to take it slow. Know who your partner is and if you are not planning on having children, I highly suggest birth control, namely condoms. And most importantly, don’t be a skank.
August 15th, 2012 — Minnehaha County, Music, Scott Wick, Sex, Sioux Empire Fair
First he stopped people from petitioning their government on the fair grounds (which are owned by the people petitioning the government) now he wants to fine bands for using cuss words (a clear violation of 1st Amendment rights).
Not sure what country Wick is from, but he doesn’t sound like he is from America.
Sure, cuss words and pesky petition gatherers can be annoying, but guess what, they have rights, the US constitution guarantees these rights.
It reminds me of something Lucinda Williams said about one of her songs a few years back in concert, she was going to perform the song on the ‘Today’ show, and they asked her to censor some parts of the song (it is about masturbation, and other stuff). She told them she was going to perform the song ‘as is’ or not at all. This was of course about 60 seconds before air. She performed the song ‘as is’ and she said this, “And guess what? No one died, and no one got hurt.”
February 27th, 2012 — Railroads, Satire, Sex, SF City Council, shit found, Sioux Falls
Not sure, better ask the City’s media department, maybe they can explain (click on the PDF document).
Found this slide in the presentation. Maybe genitalia and RR’s have a lot in common?
August 19th, 2011 — Sex, SF School District, Sioux Falls
And the Obama administration has done just that;
Pro-lifers are horrified at the announcement Monday that the Obama administration has approved a recommendation from the Institute of Medicine (IOM) to guarantee full health insurance coverage for birth control, including the so-called “morning-after” pill, under the Affordable Care Act.
Okay, I’m a little late on this announcement (no pun intended) but it ties in well with this story on Stormland TV (by my new favorite reporter, Ms. Winters) about free and reduced lunches increasing;
SIOUX FALLS, SD – More and more families are applying for free or reduced lunch in the Sioux Falls School District.
Every year, for the past six years, the numbers have increased at the elementary, middle school and high school levels.
Make no mistake folks, over population is the root of most of our problems in this world. Global warming, hunger, war, annoying text messages, can all be blamed on it. Wear a freaking rubber for God’s sake, or for at least my sake.

The population in Benton County, Mississippi is less than 8,200, but, according to a new study, one in every 27 people has a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI), no other county in the U.S. even comes close.
Benton Medical Center family nurse practitioner, Christina Nunnally, says she sees cases of STI’s almost every day. “STDs are common through Mississippi,” Nunnally says, “A lower education level and higher poverty level it seems to breed STDs.”
The STI rate in Benton County is astronomical. The next closest is Dewey, South Dakota, where the rate is one in 43.
Shocking STD Rates Turn Focus On Sex Education
April 19th, 2010 — Sex, Sioux Falls, Sioux Falls Mayor Race
Troublemaker! I think I am going to kick you off of my site as a contributor;
During the campaign, pictures circulated on the Internet of women in bikinis and one of a scantily-clad lass simulating a sex act on the dance floor of Bucks. So Costello in some circles became the candidate of Bucks. Maybe a majority of voters didn’t care, but in a close city election, it can’t help.
I have to admit, when I read this I laughed for at least 10 minutes straight! I think the real reason Pat lost was his ties to special interests, not bikinis and sex acts, but what do I know, I’m just a blogger.
December 1st, 2009 — Anal Sex, anger, Palin, Sarah Palin, Sex, shit found
It looks like the rat is saying, “Holy shit, she’s got a purse full of dildos!”
Here is a gem from the author: “In this Internet age, we need to let our kids know that it is wrong to spread rumors and lies,” DeBrecht explained. “Unfortunately, many so-called journalists have basically told children that this is permissible as long as you disagree with someone’s opinions. Our kids deserve better than the shameful example that has been set before them. What message does this send to little girls who may want to enter the political arena? Don’t you dare lest you be Palinized?”
