Quote of the week

"Quite frankly, some of these bills in the legislature are a waste of time. Now tanning could be prohibited? These are all personal choices. What's next, written consent to jump on a trampoline in your own backyard?"

Actually, if you live in some certain developments with home owners assocaitions, I found out that you can't have a trampoline in your backyard, even if fenced in, even if you have liability insurance. This was in Kansas City; don't know about SD.

Glad I live in the country!

Actually, the legislature should be made to address the major issues first. IF they have time afterwards, then get to the silly bills. They are doing their work backwards.

Having a trampoline in your back yard can void your homeowners' insurance in many states.

ON the Trampoline issue. Yes, they can be dangerous BUT, to many people are SUE HAPPY!
They want to live off the backs of other people....

Too bad the 'nanny' state failed to pass bills that would take women's decisions away from them.

No insurance company wants to insure people who make their own choices about pit bulls, trampolines, stairs without rails, etc.

Something I hear that Republicans' favor, people making their own choices.

As a woman I would like SD and well as America to decrease abortions!!!!!
I already know my tax dollars are used from them and i don't like it!
It isn't right to use it for birth control. I also believe that this is off topic...
Sorry.
