Rick Weiland SD

He is campaigning to raise the cap on Social Security, Medicare for all as a choice in addition to private Ins. -choose medicare or BCBS, expand medicaid, Campaign finance reform, are a few of his positions. Elizabeth Warren endorsed him. He has visited all SD counties and districts doing shoe leather campaigning. Does his own picking in his campaign music videos and talks to the voters in person. The guy has integrity and common sense. What the hell he's doing in politics is a mystery. I hope he got his gamma gobulin shot.

New Career Choice?

The ongoing debates for this election have moderators. Moderators moderate, to moderate is to even out, calm, prevent extremes. Jerry Springer type discussions or Fox Ruse segments don't do moderation. The theme is like WWE pro wrestlers hype. The debates among the gop/tea party/fox crowd need an alternative to moderators. Stimulators have another association [fluffers are in that realm I've read], but Agitators could be trained, even licensed.

We Need An Ebola Travel Ban Now

We all remember SARS, right? It was barely contained in China and N America. Then it again escaped from a bio-containment lab.

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.
