“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

Judge Scolds Schools Over Taxpayer-Funded Lawsuit for More Taxpayer Funds

KELO reports that it took Circuit Judge Lori Wilbur of Pierre to tell the educrats filing a lawsuit against the state of South Dakota using taxpayer funds for more taxpayer funds what average, common-sense South Dakotans already knew: school districts do not have legal standing to seek a court judgment on the constitutionality of the […]

Homosexual Rights Trump Religious Rights

Lesbians in California are attempting to use government power to force doctors to artificially inseminate them, regardless of the doctors’ moral or religious objections. From CNS News: Justices on the California Supreme Court unanimously held Monday that Drs. Christine Brody and Douglas Fenton, who work at the North Coast Women’s Care Medical Group in Vista, […]

Homophobia is Normal, Natural and Healthy

Andrew Tallman has a very thoughtful piece at TownHall.com today. It makes so much sense that I’m a little depressed that I didn’t think of it first. Tallman says that while he was raised to be a Christian who takes the Bible seriously, he’s been trying to learn and become more open minded. In doing […]

‘There’s No Debate’ Dykstra Slogan Catching Like Wildfire

Well, the Democrat Party mouthpiece Badlands Blue may not like Joel Dykstra’s new slogan “There’s no debating it,” (over Senator Tim Johnson’s refusal to engage in debates this election season), but apparently it’s catchy. Not only is it showing up on cool t-shirts as Sibby Online points out, apparently the Rapid City Weekly News has […]

Police to Law Abiding Citizens: Hand Over Your Guns

WorldNetDaily highlights a disturbing development in Oklahoma where police sent letters to about 60 gun owners, asking them to “voluntarily” submit their weapons to the police for ballistics testing in connection with a murder. My response (as a former cop) would have been, “Not without a warrant.” Others, however, were more compliant. From the Tulsa […]

Lien and Herseth Sandlin: Time to Lead, Follow or Get Out of the Way

As Sibby Online points out, the Chris Lien/Stephanie Herseth Sandlin debate at Dakotafest yesterday saw some agreement…and some important differences. While both U.S. House of Representatives candidates said we need to do more drilling offshore, drill in ANWR, build more nuclear power plants, and build the proposed Hyperion refinery at Elk Point, the Argus Leader […]

Now That’s the Ticket: McCain and Romney

By Marie Jon’ We will soon know who the Democrat and Republican vice-presidential candidates will be. Who will Sen. John McCain pick to stand beside him? Although to some it is doubtful, will Mitt Romney be his choice? Common sense almost dictates that “the candidate Republicans should be clamoring for is the one liberals are […]

McCain Likely to Leave Pro-Life Plank Alone

The ABC News Political Radar blog says John McCain is backing off his previous plans to undermine the pro-life plank of the Republican platform: McCain’s plan to take a hands-off approach with the abortion platform stands in stark contrast with the position he took during his first presidential run. Back in 2000, McCain clashed with […]

The Pain of My Abortion Caused Me to Hate Myself

*Publisher’s note: this personal testimony is being reprinted in light of the upcoming vote in South Dakota on Initiated Measure 11 and the recent statement by the American Psychological Association that abortion does not threaten women’s mental health. By Karen HartmanArizona State LeaderOperation Outcry Silence was my companion for nearly 14 years until I found […]

Fireproof the Movie Coming to Rapid City

I’m told that there will be an advanced screening of Fireproof on Friday Aug. 22 at 7:00 pm at Rapid Valley Baptist Church in Rapid City. Fireproof is a Christian movie made by the same people as the very successful “Facing the Giants” movie. This is from a press release about the movie: “Fireproof” mirrors […]

You are Getting Green…Veeery Green

If the American Psychological Association hadn’t already tipped their hand that they care more about promoting a liberal agenda than examining the facts, they’ve definitely done so now. As you may have heard, last week the APA came out with the outrageous statement that abortion isn’t hazardous to women’s mental health. This was soon refuted […]

The Liberal Dog Chases Its Tail

Liberals just don’t get it. Bob Schwartz over at Politics and Hypocrisy doesn’t understand why rational people consider the school funding lawsuit utter nonsense while Initiated Measure 11 is perfectly legitimate. One might as well ask why lemons are sour while red apples are sweet. One has no bearing on or legitimate taste comparison to […]
