Apparently, according to a letter just received from @govkristinoem, I am part of a radical left wing cabal, am despicable, a mob, & the stock I own is ending this country & I won’t stop till the Consitituition lies in tatters.
(My W River team won the state Bicentennial of the Constitution Competition & got flown to DC while Kristi was a cheerleader bouncing up & down & waving pompoms at sporting events.) Oh, & she takes a stab at teachers unions. My folks taught in South Dakota for decades.
They also ranched, raised two kids to love their neighbors, & my dad, the fella she just sent her hate mail to -asking him for money- was a genuine champion South Dakota cowboy who died last year. We buried him on the last day of #Sturgis, rodeo buddies unable to come due to

In 2015 I was invited to give a motivational speech at #SouthDakota #BoysState. I had to make a decision as I considered my speech that day. I could play it safe and tell a nice story how 30 year earlier I had sat where they are sitting and look at me now...OR
I could tell them how 30 years ago I was sitting where they are and had dreams that fell apart due to my own poor choices, about my addiction, my struggles and my recovery. I chose the latter.
If I had done the first I probably would have been invited back. I gave the second speech and was met by the #AmericanLegion commanding officer who shook my hand, scolded me for saying "fuck" to 16 & 17 year old boys and asked where to send the check.

The #DebForInterior hearing is moving pretty quickly. After just 30 minutes, the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee is already on the questions and answers portion.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia), chairman of committee, is first in line for questions.
Tune in to the #DebForInterior hearing here:…

I know no one’s surprised, but we need to call it out anyway. Today the Republican Party sealed their legacy w/Trumpism. They’re now & forever the party of racism, white supremacy, neo-nazism, domestic terrorism, conspiracy theorists & fact deniers. They own this. #GOPCowards
Republicans of conscience, now is the time. There’s no “saving” your party at this point. Now is your fleeting opportunity to come over to the right side of history & join the Dems. @SenBillCassidy @SenatorBurr @SenatorCollins @lisamurkowski @MittRomney @BenSasse @SenToomey
For the other 43 - the #GOPCowards - us REAL patriots will see to it that you’re stripped of all power & your big $ donors drop you.

To the REAL patriots: FLOOD YOUR SENATORS’ PHONES. Tell them how sickened you are, as one of their constituents. Contact info to follow (thread)

I've been analyzing US state #mortality data!

Tonight, let's start with comparing #SouthDakota and #NorthDakota!

#SD had 18% #excess #deaths, while #ND had a whopping 31%

As we know SD has the weakest Government #Stringency, while ND has stronger measures!

North Dakota had 31% vs the previous 3y average age-adjusted mortality.

@MLevitt_NP2013 @justin_hart @FatEmperor @AlexBerenson @EthicalSkeptic @tlowdon @Zigmanfreud @ianmSC @yinonw
Let's look at SD on a monthly basis. Note the shaded pink area is the Government Stringency. SD at the end of 2020 had the lowest stringency, but also significant excess deaths.

Dear @GregAbbott_TX As NBCs of the United States for the preservation of the Union we petition you to call up the Texas Constitutional Militia, resubmit your case to SCOTUS, occupy all assets of Chinese nationalists suspected of high treason!
With the Constitutional Militia Mustered, SCOTUS will hear you case! and the other Patriot States will take similar actions to preserve these United States of America as a government of the people, by the people and for the people with the right to 1 legal vote per 1 voter.
Never has #TEXAS had a cause so just and righteous, so patriotic, so universal. For as Christ teaches, when we see America beaten up on the side of the road, we cannot pass by like the hypocrite and pretend his wounds do not need caring for. (cf. Luke 10:25-37)

Batman, world’s greatest detective here with 17 state attorney generals advancing a meritless case for Donald’s benefit. #TexasLawSuit


There’s bad actors in regional leadership and committee chairs. Remove them…

#Alabama Steve is cool with undermining democracy and internet gambling but wants to make sure he can dictate what women do with their bodies.

I am going to rant about taxes for a bit because that 2018 FOX interview with Cori Bush has me pissed, at her for not doing her homework and at FOX, Mitt Romney, and all the other tax propagandists who focus solely on federal taxes. Remember Romney's 47% who pay no taxes? A lie.
But it's a lie that goes over well as it comforts and flatters the wealthy by portraying them as the people grossly bearing the burden of paying for everything while 47% are freeloaders. Well, first off, everybody pays into Social Security and Medicare, even the undocumented.
and they will never receive those benefits they pay for. There is a small exception for those who work but earn so little all their taxes are refunded as an Earned Income Tax Credit. They way Republicans scream about EITC you would never know it was originally a GOP plan (Nixon)

Screening patients has made me realize how few actually know anything about #COVID19. They know cover coughs, wash hands, but rarely anything of how it's actually spread, which events or places are risky... A simple & effective response is to #educate #SouthDakota. @govkristinoem
@SDDOH @RCJournal @argusleader need to do massive campaign on outlets outside of & on local news (because not all watch it) & let people know simple facts and stats that aren't being emphasized. Such as:
1. A Negative test is NOT a ticket to freely socialize without precautions.
2. Estimates by CDC suggest:
*60% of #COVID19 spread is done by those absent of any symptoms!
*35% are pre-symptomatic
*25% asymptomatic

JUST because someone seems OK, doesn't mean they are! #StayHome #MaskUp #SocialDistancing #EveryMaskUp #MasksSaveLives

@AngelaKennecke What I got from @govkristinoem is that if you’re old and have underlying health conditions, you deserve to die. I also gathered that she believes she is a superior being. She is also very corrupt person. Claims the evidence of mask wearing is just not there? What? #SouthDakota 1/
@AngelaKennecke @govkristinoem Leading the world in infection rate and the Dakotas leading the world in death rate (including 3rd world countries, & authoritarian countries, like we are becoming) is not proof?! Noem knows better. When’s the last time you had surgery & the doctor didn’t wear a mask?
@AngelaKennecke @govkristinoem Noem’s farce about science behind mask wearing is killing South Dakotans. We need to stop her negligence towards South Dakotan’s lives. We need to stop her from making us look like idiots. We need to impeach her.

⚠️NO SURPRISE: the surge of new #coronavirus cases is WORST in states whose leaders neglected to enforce virus containment efforts or failed to implement mask mandates, such as #SouthDakota and #NorthDakota, 2 of the 3 hottest #COVID19 zones in the world.…
A relationship between policies and #coronavirus cases is CLEAR:

States with more consistent control policies—such as in New England—avoided a summer surge and are now having a smaller fall surge, as opposed to states that rolled them back very quickly like #Florida or #Texas.
#NorthDakota has made little effort to contain the #coronavirus.

For a while, its residents were spared. Now, nearly 1 in 10 North Dakotans have tested positive for #coronavirus — about a third of those in just the past 2 weeks — and **1 in 1,000 have DIED of #COVID19**.😱

1/ A week back or so, Eric Ding was retweeting bigly about nurses & medicos in Belgium being asked to work on despite being acutely infected with #COVID19. I pointed out at the time, that already happens in the USA.
"is allowing", huh, o rly.
2/ Someone asked me some days previously to give an estimate on when North Dakota and South Dakota hospitals would start getting overwhelmed by #COVID19. I played on the safe side, said around 3 weeks from that day of my prediction, quite possibly 2 weeks. A *safe* prediction
3/ Hospitals, ER's & ICU's get swamped by #COVID19 in several different ways:
a/ simple number of patients needing hospital care all at same time;
b/ doctors & nurses lost to either acute COVID_19 illness or to death caused by that;
c/ lack of sufficient PPE (see b/), oxygen, etc

Les électeurs (qui viennent de voter pour #Trump) acceptent la hausse du salaire minimum de 8,56$ aujourd'hui à 15$ en 2026

Ce sera le plus haut salaire minimum des États-Unis
