Last week I had a lengthy conversation with a prospective SC State Senator. When I tried to tell her about the North Decota State Bank, she was enthousiastic and wanted more info. So I used the Contact tab @ NDBank.gov

Within half an hour I got this reply:

Thank you for your interest in Bank of North Dakota. I am happy to provide you with some recent independent research of our model and other website information.

The following are links to the research paper out of Boston and expert testimony out of Vermont.

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
