Blue State Ball 2017

It was refreshing to hear the speakers talk about something I have been thinking since November; Brush off Trump and get back to work.

In other words enough of the whining and pissing and moaning, go back to doing what progressives are good at, being a thorn and a true opposition to the corporate conservatism that has taken over DC.

The speakers were fantastic, especially Norm who really got the crowd fired up. DaCola was promised the video and hope to have it within the week to post.

Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson thanked Bruce and I for helping her out with some tips about her case with Sanford Health in Minnesota.

Norman Goldman crushed it for speakers, a progressive attorney radio talk show host. Always entertaining.

Thom Hartmann, progressives last hope in talk radio and TV, ended the event with his common sense about government and progressives, and how Trump suckered the Democrats.

Another great event, I look forward to the battle next year. We also got in contact with an immigrant running for St. Paul mayor, and hope to lend him our talents.

Temporarily escaping from the Iron Curtain of Sioux Falls is good for the soul. Crossing the state line into a free thinking state must be a pleasure. Some day, South Dakota will get tired of dominance and corruption. Meanwhile, it’s refreshing to know there’s a place where government represents the general population and not just a few well connected wealthy or political types.

Possum must be one of those coded messages that used to be placed in newspaper personals. Some sort of spy counter spy ad with the package in Menno?

It’s obvious Sanford Health & Credit isn’t welcome in Minnesota. Such is the case?

It looks like a lot of fun. Traveling to such an event, while living in Republican South Dakota, must have felt like a “Check Point Charlie” moment, where you walk into West Berlin and the world all a sudden becomes a place of ideas and tolerance, and no more a place of just one party rule…..

Is it true, that in Minnesota the buildings don’t spontaneously collapse? Oh how I would love to visit such a place some day!
