Dakota Voice Week in Review, Ending Dec 3, 2011

These are the most read and talked-about articles from Dakota Voice last week. If you missed one of these the first time around, this is your chance to get caught up before the new week begins.

Fast, Furious and Lawless Obama Regime – At this point in time, anyone who does not understand that America has been taken over by a lawless, communist regime is woefully out of touch with the glaring reality of our situation. How anyone could not see the devilish behavior of Barack Obama and his Marxist buddies in Congress and his administration is hard to fathom, except when we consider that there really are extremely stupid and deluded people in the world. In 2012, vote as if your country is at stake–because it is.

SD GOP: The Voters Are Watching – First we had the South Dakota Freedom Index which revealed how South Dakota’s state senators scored on 10 freedom-related issues. Now a Republican Platform Scorecard for South Dakota legislators has just been released. The scorecard compares how legislators have voted on actual legislation in Pierre and compared that with the values of the South Dakota GOP Platform. Some of our “Republicans” in Pierre didn’t line up so well with the stated values of the South Dakota GOP as articulated on the platform.

‘Occupy Indianapolis’ and the SEIU – The University of West Virginia Marching Band put on a half-time show like I haven’t seen in years. The vulgar, talent-less displays that are passed off as half-time entertainment these days are only a reason for me to change stations to check on the news or the government access channel or the Home Shopping Network

Mountaineers do Half-Time Right – Drudge has a link to a Fox News story about Occupy Indianapolis organizers resorting to recruiting local homeless folks to maintain a presence on the state capital grounds. In viewing the video I recognized a familiar face; a middle-aged, gray-bearded demonstrator carrying an “Occupy” sign hooded in a rain slicker, but still recognizable.

Victims of the Obama Corruption Machine – The Obama Administrations Solyndra scandal that cost U.S. taxpayers $535 million is just the tip of the iceberg of the scandal enveloping Obamas use of taxpayer dollars to help his top donors. Obama has nationalized the Chicago patronage system. The truth is that on a scale of one to 10, the Nixon scandals were about a three compared to Obama green payoff being a 10.

An Open Letter to Sean Hannity – An open letter from a Sean Hannity fan who is fed up that Hannity continues to give air time to RINO mudslinger Karl Rove. “Moving on to this primary season, its clear to anyone that the GOP has promised Mitt Romney the nomination and they are doing everything they can to see that, systematically, each of his rivals are destroyed.”

Comrade Sam: Eat Your Broccoli or Else – Not only do we have to eat our peas, but we might have to eat our broccoli as well. The Obama Administration reached a tyrannical high recently when, during oral arguments before the District of Columbia Court of Appeals on the constitutionality of Obamacares health-insurance mandate, their lawyer, Beth Brinkmann, made the claim that a law requiring Americans to eat broccoli could be constitutional.

Critical Differences Between Left and Right – Socialists on the Left would have us believe that their “progressive” (an Orwellian term designed to obfuscate the fact that they are liberal–modern liberal, not classic liberal) ideas can work in the real world. However, it only takes a cursory examination in the real world to realize these fantasies won’t withstand contact with reality. This video provides some insight into how and why these principles contrast, as well as how they work…or, in the case of liberalism, don’t work.

Getting Stoned for America – What’s wrong with this picture? Maybe some folks think it’s normal to be stoned, and think recreational drugs should be legal, but mature human beings tend to have a problem with something like this, especially when lives are on the line. Union workers at Tower Defense in Detroit drinking booze and smoking pot over lunch.

State still in hot water financially but it is not as hot as it has been – South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard recently announced that the state is still having some financial problems, but they aren’t as bad as they were last year. The improvement came with the tax revenue in the past several months has been above the estimates. The downturn in the state’s tobacco revenue is part of why the general fund isn’t where state officials would like to see it.

Thank you to all our readers for pushing these to the top of the pile.
