Planned Parenthood Knew About Gosnell And Did Nothing

Planned Parenthood Knew About Gosnell And Did Nothing

One of the most horrifying of the horrors disclosed in the Kermit Gosnell trial, aside from the murdered babies, is that so many people around Gosnell knew what was going on and did nothing to stop him. From hospitals to state regulators to even Gosnell’s own employees, many people looked the other way because abortion

In The ND University System, The Presidents Are The Probelm

I forgot to post this earlier today, but last night I was on Chris Berg’s show on Valley News Live, and he had a great analogy for the problems in higher education. He talked about the structure as though it were a football team. We have the State Board of Higher Education, which is like

Legislators Who Work For The University System Allowed To Double Dip And Take Liberties With Vacation Time

Previously, SAB reported Senator Tony Grindberg (R-Fargo) had collected more than his employment agreement authorized as the head of the NDSU Technology and Research Park while serving in the state leigslature. Now I can shed some light on other legislators who are allowed to double-dip on their higher ed pay while serving in the legislature.

North Dakota Senate On Bottle Rockets Ban: You'll Shoot Your Eye Out

The North Dakota Senate today, despite having already passed a bill to expand the dates during which fireworks in general can be sold, voted down a bill to lift a ban on the sale of bottle rockets specifically. Here’s the nauseatingly paternalistic floor debate: “This isn’t about freedom,” Senator Dave Oehlke said. “This is about

SAB's Top Five Posts, Open Thread

Here are the top five posts for the week that was here on SAB. Also, open thread. Ed Schultz’s Career Meltdown Continues, Calls Reporters “A Bunch Of Freaking Whores” – Ed Schultz’s career is in decline, and apparent more than a few of you SAB readers are enjoying the schadenfreude.

Only The Government Could Lose Money Selling Booze To Football Fans

From the “you can’t make this stuff up” department: The University of Minnesota lost almost $16,000 last year on alcohol sales at home football games, despite selling more than $900,000 worth of beer and wine. The school released the figures to the Associated Press after a records request, which showed it incurred significant expenses from

Question of the Week: It's Almost Halftime, How Has the Legislature Been Playing?

This week marks the “two minute warning” before the end of the first half of play in the 63rd Legislative Assembly. Friday, March 1st marks crossover, when all bills introduced in one chamber of the Legislature must either be voted down or, if approved, be given to the other chamber. The Legislators will then retire

Video: Democrats Argue In Favor Of Burdening Poor With Tax Hikes For Their Own Good

Yesterday the North Dakota House voted down HB1387 which would have instituted a 127% tax hike on cigarettes. The bill failed on by 19 – 72 vote margin, but the debate was interesting. Rep. Glen Froseth, arguing against the bill, noted that tax hikes on tobacco use disproportionately burden the poor. But Rep. Eliot Glassheim,

Legislature Considering Bill To Toughen Petition Fraud Penalty, Also Considering Resolution To Honor Petition Fraudsters

There is a heavy vibe of irony coming from the ND legislature this week. Yesterday I wrote about a resolution being introduced to honor the NDSU bison football team, ten members of which (including four starters) were convicted for filing fraudulent petition signatures, something that subsequently derailed two initiated measure campaigns costing organizers hundreds of

Fargo-Area Legislators Introduce Resolution Commending NDSU Bison Football Criminals

A group of Fargo-area legislators have introduced HCR3025 commending the NDSU Bison football team, as well as head coach Craig Bohl and NDSU President Dean Bresciani, “for achieving a rare level of dominance in NCAA Division I football.” I’ve never really liked these sort of resolution. These sort of symbolic pats-on-the-head are a waste of
