Amber Ruffin; Nazis, Traitors and Fascists

I just got into watching Ruffin over the weekend. She’s hilarious.

Why I put ‘quotes’ around words

Let there be peace

County Treasurer Candidate calls Residents Erections

This is why I often tell people running for local office to have someone proofread their campaign materials before releasing them. Besides the fact that the first two sentences were incoherent, I’m sure she meant to say we are ‘Hardy’ in Minnehaha County, but I’m not sure what that has to do with the treasurer’s office? Maybe it means we can tolerate standing in long lines for hours?

Is South Dakota Attorney General Jason Namehardtospell getting special treatment?

As you can see, Jason is a presidential elector.

I concluded when the investigation started that I would try to say as little about it publicly on my blog. Even if my opinion about Jason’s political leanings are not that favorable, or what I think of him as an AG (not sure what he has been doing?), I still believe when an accident like this occurs anyone and everyone deserves a fair shake. There are several variables we don’t know about, and it’s hard for me to stand on my soap box and say he is guilty or not. I’m not a traffic crime investigator, and while I know some mechanical things about cars, I know very little about how their computers work in recording these events.

Some things are obvious. Jason did hit a man and that man is dead. Everything else is pure speculation and the reason why I have chosen to not make any judgements yet . . .

BUT, there is one judgement that can be made, it is blatantly obvious the AG is getting special treatment. It has been over a week since the accident occurred, yet NOTHING has been released to the public. If you watch the news or read other highway patrol reports, even in deadly accidents, those reports appear usually within a 24-48 hour period (or sometimes within a couple of hours after the accident). So why is it taking so long to give the public a full and transparent report? I don’t know. I can only speculate as many other South Dakotans have that the process is being prolonged not to be thorough but to prepare damage control. It has the appearance of corruption and it would be within the best interest of the state to release the report ASAP!

And here is something else that has stuck in my craw, whether you think Jason is nice fella or not, or if you think he is guilty or not, why on God’s green earth has he continued to work during an investigation? If I were an elected official (especially the head dude of the state’s law enforcement) and was involved in a fatal vehicle accident that was actively being investigated, I would take a leave of absence until the report came back. It’s almost like Jason is in a state of denial over the fact he ran over a man and killed him. It’s one thing to determine whether or not it was accident, but you still did it, and a person is dead. I would think your ethics and conscious would get the best of you and you would just step down until we get it all figured out. Nope. That is not how the SD GOP has trained this young man . . . deny, deny, deny . . . it’s all a left wing conspiracy.

Like I said, I have no idea what happened that night, but the special treatment has to end, immediately!

Spearfish City Limits Podcast

I was John’s guest last night. John and I don’t agree on a lot of things, and it gets a little long, but it was fun.

Scott Ehrisman runs the South DaCola Blog out of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He’s been involved and awake, and asking questions of elected leaders, corporate clowns, and those around him for over a decade. In this broadcast, we talk beer, free markets, Amazon, the Corporate monstrosity, Constitutional principles, reparations, black, white, racism, the Patriot Act, WWII. We end the program with a lengthy analysis and discussion of 5G and how it is impacting the residents of Sioux Falls and other communities across South Dakota.

Here is the NATION link John mentions in the podcast and the NAVY study.

Doc Recommend; The Social Dilemma

I highly recommend you watch this DOC, while there are many things you already know, there are some oh sh*t moments.

Happy Labor Day

My list of heros are short and sweet, artists and musicians. Billy has always been the voice of Labor, and this live concert of him has always been bookmarked on my internets. Work is sacred, never forget that.

Mayor TenHaken’s (former) Deputy COS, T.J. Nelson gets another demotion

As you can see about 10 days ago Mayor ‘COG’ handed another demotion to T.J. Typeover, he removed him from the CVB Bid Board. I asked someone why T.J. still continues to keep his job (and pay scale) when he keeps getting demotions. The answer I got, “Because he is probably running Paul’s gubernatorial campaign on the taxpayer’s dime.” No one has seen T.J. in months either, oh that’s right, like many city managers, directors and pencil pushing administrators he’s been ‘working’ at home.
