Legislature: yes, South Dakotans are fucking nuts

If the South Dakota Legislature had a Homeliest Man on Campus contest Jim Bolin would probably win.
Lawmakers will study access to mental health services in South Dakota and examine the costs at the state and local levels. Republican Sen. Jim Bolin says it's a very important issue that's "not going away." House Speaker Pro Tempore Steven Haugaard supported the mental health study, saying it's an opportunity to direct state resources in that area and to help counties figure out how to address the "burgeoning problem of mental illness."
Read it all here.

I am not convinced that a person's sexual preference is determined at conception or at birth. I have lived with or near more LGBTQ people than many have and every story is different: from hatred of a parent to exposure to hormone-producing environmental contaminants and lack of circumcision. Women bullied or abused by men for most of their lives or men growing up with a cold or absent father have been reasons given for personal choices.

I began life left-handed but my father switched me because of his experience in the military which is geared for the right-handed; and, although I've never had sexual contact with another man so far in 65 years there was a time when androgyny seemed right for me.

i have been chronicling gender bending chemicals in the environment from its beginning. Pfizer's war on humanity is being prosecuted by quacks like Jim Bolin, Allen Unrub, Fred Deutsch, Jeff Monroe, Steve Haugaard and their fellow red state fascists.

It’s all related: a medical industry oligopoly, gender dysphoria, polluted waterways, subsidized agriculture, absence of medical insurance, cancer and a Republican legislature on the dole. South Dakota Republicans don't want schools to talk about the causes of gender dysphoria. Why? Because their campaign dollars come from the very industries that manufacture the products causing it. No serious discussion of issues associated with gender identity can be undertaken without the studying the effects of phthalates and other plasticizers on human genetics.

A study recently published in the Journal of Rural Health found the suicide rate for farmers is not only the highest of any occupation in America, it's spiking because of a lack of ready access to mental health care services. South Dakota writer, Tom Lawrence calls it part of "the insanity of the Farm Bill."

Still another study just concluded cannabis is an effective antidepressant therapy for some patients while keeping it illegal creates paranoia, anxiety and stigmatization. Cannabis is an effective treatment for Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

New Approach South Dakota has written on its Facebook page there are still two more initiatives to be verified before they get to the petition that would put legal cannabis for some patients on the 2018 ballot.
