Interests: Government and politics are basis for most of my forum and blog posting. I am also interested in science and technology, education, history, humor, and even the weather. As a South Dakota resident and farmer, my interests in the areas mentioned tend to relate to South Dakota aspects or concerns. Media, including the internet, TV, radio and newspapers also interest me. The current domination of opinion radio and TV and even "news" channels by Right Wing ideologues willing to invent and distort "facts" in support of failed policies also concerns me as a real threat to actual democracy. Current Republican leadership viewing politics as bayonet warfare is also a threat to fundamental freedoms, constitutional balance of power, lives and liberty.<br> <a href="http://dakotatoday.typepad.com/">Return to Blog</a>
