Tea Party Express Interviews Mike Rounds About U.S. Senate Race

Posted 11.8.13

During a recent interview with the Tea Party Express, Mike Rounds talked about the upcoming U.S. Senate Race. With record-low approval ratings for the President and Congress, Rounds discussed his plan for getting

On February 22, 2006, the state legislature of South Dakota passed an act banning all medical abortions except those necessary to save the mother’s life (see double effect). Rounds signed the act on March 6 and the ban was to have taken effect on July 1, 2006, but never did because of a court challenge. A referendum for a potential repeal of H.B. 1215 was placed on the ballot for the November 2006 statewide election due to a successful petition.[12] On May 30, over 38,000 signatures were filed, more than twice the 17,000 required to qualify. The law was ultimately repealed by voters on November 7, 2006, the day of Rounds’ re-election.[13]

Happy Halloween


Halloween

Happy Halloween

The weather, is  wicked.  It is reported that winter is rolling in for the mid-west and east coast though life is as per usual here in the 206 … windy cold and reports of Halloween rain.

The last few weeks of mid-term2018 campaigning by the Republican Nationalist Party has made folks uncomfortable ,what with all the loony tune behavior, overt lies and racist comments by folks who claim they are qualified to be representing constituents… Tell me how that can be if you are engaging in fear of non whites?

 “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” 

 I personally do not want to go back to what sounds like the colonial days  …it controlled the lives & the future of people of colour and now a group that took a hard right are now saying they are Nationalists …the definition btw is not what teamtrump has tossed out into the airwaves. They are determined to repeal equity in all its forms …We are a Nation of immigrants, yet it seems like there is a stark difference between which immigrants, asylum seekers or refugees that are more acceptable … You heard the rhetoric,  we must move forward stay in the present so discrimination in all its forms fails.

Republican​s’ plans for after the election: Video


Dear fellow MoveOn member,

If they seize control of the Senate, Republicans will use a powerful but little-known tool to ram through legislation that favors big corporations and the 1% at everyone else’s expense.

I made this video to explain:

It’s on us to spread the word. Please forward this email, share the video via social media like Facebook and Twitter, and then sign up to make get-out-the-vote phone calls as part of MoveOn’s Voters Rising campaign.

Thanks for all you do.
