We have a rainy day fund here in South Dakota. The legislature has yet to spend a penny of it. They have instead relied on cutting, the cuts have been deep. Even our Republican governor came out and said, paraphrasing - we saved that money for a rainy day. Well, it's raining outside. He was pretty frustrated with some of the cutting.

As for the thoughts of running me out of here....I'm pretty tolerant of differing opinions, as I'm somewhat of a political paradox myself. Not many folks out there share my opinions on abortion and capital punishment. Both parties have it wrong.
