    And there will be nashing of teeth. Acts 7:54-60.
    Sounds like prophecy being fulfilled.

    Well the mouse does resemble you Cory.

    Re Mr. Jensen, we should known for years that he was in it: after all, he said in the Rapid City Journal that the free market, not government, should be allowed to decide whether or not racial discrimination is acceptable, and his SB 128 introduced in 2013, which would have allowed discrimination by business owners, he said would serve to protect “the constitutional right to free association, the right to free speech and private property rights.”
    And, of course, most recently, at a Rapid City school board meeting he publicly called out a member of the community after she shared that several members of her family are suffering from cancer and was concerned about the school board decisions for Covid-19. He told her, “I am not responsible for your family’s health.” That ranks up there with “Your dead kids don’t trump my constitutional rights.”
    South Dakota – only the finest.

    LewdandLusty’s eyes be glued to Noem Nothing’s fanny from his doghouse. The lechers never quit.

  5. Yvonne 2021-10-20

    Eve…thanks for that example. This just shows there are many out there, especially in the political sect wuth the mindset that discrimination is legal. They flunked history because they are absent in mind to accept the many forms of the civil rights act (s) that have been enacted into “LAW” for the past 150 years.
    If the rights of a business establishment (good one for the Supreme Court to review and decide) is found to trump one’s right to frequent that establishment, then the right to boycott and not support those businesses should be exercised. They’ll go under fast…as many have in the past.

    South Dakota – only the finest. Eve Fisher, I believe you misspelled swinest. Or mispronounced it, or something.

  7. Yvonne 2021-10-20

    Mike, I believe she was being facetious… huh Eve?

  8. Eve Fisher 2021-10-20

    Absolutely facetious, I can assure you.

  9. Mark Anderson 2021-10-20

    Yeah at least Phil Jensen made Rolling Stone, what can I say, South Dakota is now purgatory. I guess I’ll put up my sign that says “no Jensen’s allowed”. He’d be all for it.

  10. grudznick 2021-10-20

    Was his face on the cover of the Rolling Stone?

  11. grudznick 2021-10-20

    Well, I’ll be damned. He did get his picture on the cover of the Rolling Stone. But he’s not wearing his pleather jacket and he hasn’t shaved, so it’s hard to tell who it is.

    Marlboro Barbie, Cardbored Mike and every sinate magat voted against free elections today and doomed Dems election bill. Magats can happily go about disenfranchising voters of color all they want. Activist magat spotus isn’t likely to stand in their way.

    America needs a severe change in leadership which means all magats must go, now!

    Food for thought from Alaskan blogger……. Our US Senate is grossly unrepresentative. Because every state, no matter the population, has two senators, small, rural states have more more senators than their small populations deserve. Alaska, with 733,391 people has two Senators just like California with almost 40 million people – 54 times as many people! Democrats in the Senate represent 43 million more people than the Republican Senators represent.
    There are 50 Republican Senators who aren’t being put in the spotlight like Manchin. What are they doing? There isn’t one who has the courage to vote yes?
    Minority leader McConnell could work out a deal the get this passed. But making Democrats look bad is his main objective. That and voter suppression is the only way Republicans can stay in power at all for now.

    Mr. mike, I feel like the founding fathers were wise, very wise. They created two houses of the federal legislatures, and made them thusly. It is swell that today we rural states get to have 2 senators to protect against the 53 representatives California has. That 53 times more representatives than South Dakota (or Alaska.)

    On a side note, grudznick is being driven to Iowa soon and I am looking for some recommendations for good breakfasting spots in Des Moines, and the surrounding area. Any thoughts?

  15. mike from iowa 2021-10-21

    Never been to Des Moines.

  16. grudznick 2021-10-21

    I may cancel my trip.

  17. mike from iowa 2021-10-21

    iowa certainly doesn’t need more corrupting influences from outsiders.

    MFI (and all others)-notice how grudz makes a thoughtful comment and abruptly his gut sidelines his thoughts to ‘a place to eat!’
    The 2 SD senators in question by him from SD couldn’t find a back-bone between the two of them.

  19. O 2021-10-22

    The founding fathers were wise — for their time. Expecting good ideas from 200 years ago to be good ideas still is foolhardy. Those same forefathers were slave owners who pooped in buckets. I for one am grateful we have gone beyond that wisdom.

  20. mike from iowa 2021-10-22

    Jake, that explains in part, why surgeons love to operate on magats. No heart, no brain, no spine, no guts and their heads and arses are interchangeable. Like chopping up amoebas.

  21. O 2021-10-22

    grudznick, the Senate does not create equality — it destroys democracy. More people SHOULD have more representation. If not we end up with abominations like the Republican Senate majority that confirmed Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court was elected by 14 million fewer votes than the 47 senators who voted against her confirmation.

    Never mind the perverse effect of Senate representation and the Electoral college.
