Oh please oh please, continue with your "Some people say...." reports Thom. Please don't take the high road and tell listeners its just somethings you're making up at the end of the segment. Start every show with a few "Some people say...." issues, and let the chips fall where they may.

If for no other reason then to hear you're right wing guests tell you off for doing so, and hemming and hawing when you point out that its a well known Fox technique (or just ignore it and try to continue condemning you seriously).

Dextrosinistrously ugly. For once, I don't have to look anything up, although "right-left" ugly seems meaningless. Perhaps it refers to interpartisan bickering.

Why have so many people forgotten that "youth" is a count noun when talking about individuals? Children are youths, not youth. A good example (for word formation, but not pronunciation) is that scene from My Cousin Vinnie. Vinnie: "Two yoots." / Judge: "What is a yoot?"

Thom,

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, give us or post a list of the expenditures you spoke of today. This list of the expenditures of the military, subsidies, "Free Trade" etc. is a Great List to have handy when wanting to counter the Tea Party's concern about mis-spending, or the Republican's claim of excess spending on Social Security, Medicare, or Health Care Reform. Your list of spending, which is substantialy higher than any other single national expenditure as a budget item, is an extremely beneficial summary for "Progressives" to argue against. So please post the list of items you mentioned in your TV show today. Thank You!

State-Owned Bank of North Dakota is a HUGE Success!

In 2014, the state Bank of North Dakota was more profitable than Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan Chase. And, that's why every state should own their own depository institution.

Most people attributed the Bank of North Dakota's success with the oil boom in the region, but their latest report shows that last year was their most profitable year ever, despite the fact that their state's oil boom has become an oil bust.
