They should be training hospitality workers about sexual harrassment

While I think the Compass Center’s effort behind this program is great, there really should be a bigger discussion about sexual harassment in the hospitality workplace;

“Sioux Falls has the 5th highest amount of sexual violence per capita in the country. So, any dent that they can make in that will be huge and change peoples lives,” Safe Bars Director Lauren Taylor said.

Safe Bars uses bystander intervention and empowerment self-defense techniques to help people improve the nightlife culture.

As a person who worked in the industry for over 25 years full-time and part-time I can tell you that sexual harassment and sexual activity between co-workers and managers at work and outside of work is rampant. I would often tell people, “If you are offended easily, the hospitality industry is NOT for you.”

Maybe the Governor should take the lead with the sexism problem in Pierre

One of my lobbyist friends has an appropriate moniker for Pierre, he calls it a ‘toilet’. I couldn’t agree more. Trust me, I wasn’t shocked to hear all the stories coming out of Pierre. As another lobbyist said to me last year, “Everyone is screwing everyone in Pierre. It’s like some big disgusting orgy.”

Maybe the Governor and Mark Mickelson need to take the lead on this ‘sexual revolution’ going on in Pierre and own up to their own skeletons in the closet. Mark is fortunate he lives in Sioux Falls and has a buffer from the day to day operations, but Dennis should know these things are going on, in fact he does know.

He fired a high ranking cabinet director this past year and has yet to tell us why. Let’s just say it had little to do with his job performance and more to do with his extracurricular activities. All the governor told us of the termination after a brief suspension was it had to do with personnel reasons. Hardly. Ironically Janklow fired this person for some of the same reasons during his administration, and he got hired back by (I think) Rounds. Don’t they keep a file on these things?

Maybe if Dennis would have came clean on why this person was fired it would help the process of eliminating the gigantic ‘sex fest’ the legislative session has become and that continues throughout the year with state employees.

His cheesy dumb farm kid persona won’t cut it on this issue. And while Mickelson is worried about outside money on petition drives he should be more concerned about inside pocket pool going on in our capital city. Address the real issues going on in Pierre for once.

Sexy Lawmakers?

(Image: KSFY) Crap, Bridget busted me, what is that saying I learned from theatre class?

Oh the irony of dragging Nesiba through the mud for having an adult sexual relationship but the smoke and mirrors being put up with Wollman that he is such an angel because he admitted to it.

I believe Wollman that it was consensual, but it was not professional. Notice how HE lies at first to KSFY, then realizes he is busted since so many people blew the whistle on him, then decides to tell the truth (thinking) KSFY wouldn’t publish the first part of the interview. While all these people want to give Wollman credit for being honest, as you can see, he had no choice. If no one would have tipped off the press, Wollman probably would have never said anything.

Besides the lying, and unprofessionalism, I also thought it was improper for him to NOT inform the two young ladies he had sex with before spilling the beans to the press (on the fly). That’s all we need is another congressional hearing about touching wieners.

We will see if the Republicans realize he really screwed up and punish him or sweep it under the rug like IM22, EB-5, Gear-UP, Native Foster Kids, etc, etc, etc.

The irony is it shows what are lawmakers are really up to in Pierre. F’ing around.

Thumbs Up to USD

I have often argued that taxpayer subsidized birth control (free for all) is money better spent then welfare or SNAP or other issues/expenses that arise with unwanted pregnancies and health concerns with disease;

According to the most recent data from the South Dakota Department of Health, in 2016, they saw the most chlamydia cases ever in one year as well as the most gonorrhea cases since the 1980s. Because of that information, in a partnership with Sanford Health, the University of South Dakota is taking steps to make sure that their students are not only informed but practicing safe sex.

“We’ll have seven locations on campus starting in our north complex, with is largely where our freshmen student population lives as well as in Burgess and Norton halls.”

Placed in bathrooms mainly located on the first floor, explained Associate Dean of Students at the University of South Dakota, John Howe, students in these halls will soon find free condoms.

If you can’t feed em’ don’t breed em’!

FREE condom distribution in Sioux Falls a Huge Success!

CASPERTHECONDOM

I spoke at the Sioux Falls city council meeting on Tuesday night and commended the city (Health Department) for the success of the free condom program. I recently was at Monk’s and noticed the dispenser was empty, and the bartender told me it was because they go through a lot of them.

Joe Snevalatex did a follow up story tonight;

“Right now, we’re going through probably between 1,200 and 1,400 (condoms) a month,” said Andrea Wilson, in charge of HIV prevention outreach at Falls Community Health.

Hey, who says the city administrators get everything wrong 🙂

I guess the city is giving out FREE invisible condoms

Either this empty container at Monk’s shows how popular the free condom program is or how unpopular it is for the health department staff to refill the dispensers.

I think the bartender said something to the effect, “People must be triple wrapping.”

Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Condom Distribution Map in Sioux Falls Area

A few months ago I spoke during public testimony about handing out free condoms. Then I got a friendly call from the health director, Jill Franken that there is distribution sites in Sioux Falls. Here is the map and the listing of those sites.

While I am all for having distribution sites at bars (hookup spots). I find some places that are glaringly missing; other health clinics. Besides the taxpayer funded Falls Community Health, I’m curious why no Sanford or Avera clinics or hospitals are listed? What about community centers? Public Parks? Rec centers? Heck, Planned Parenthood isn’t even listed (but I am sure you can get them there). It seems two of our city’s largest employers don’t want to get involved with the politics of STD’s and condoms. That’s too bad, since prevention is the key to good health. But hey, after enjoying a delicious micro-brew at Monk’s, you can get a free condom and get jiggy.

Denny Sanford wants to teach your kids how to be asexual aliens?

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 not only has jobs but lots of FREE condoms

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?

 

FREE CONDOMS!

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.
