    South Dakota to build $400,000 fence around governor's residence amid coronavirus criticism

    By J. Edward Moreno - 08/13/20

    South Dakota is planning to build a $400,000 fence around the residence of the state's governor after security officials recommended it given threats amid the coronavirus to Gov. Kristi Noem (R), the Associated Press reported.

    Security is responding to unspecified threats toward the governor, the AP reported. Noem’s administration had proposed the 8-foot fence last year, but the plan was abandoned.
    Noem, who has aligned herself with President Trump in recent months, has championed a hands-off approach to the coronavirus pandemic. Her response has reportedly led to personal threats toward her.

    Last week thousands of bikers arrived in South Dakota for the Sturgis Motorcycle rally, perhaps the largest national public gathering since the pandemic started.
    “In America, we debate issues; we don’t turn to violence,” a Noem spokesperson told the AP. “But it only takes one, and per the Governor’s security team, putting up a fence around the residence is critical at this time.”

    Noem’s office did not immediately respond to an inquiry from The Hill.

    Some of Deep Neocons funded GOPA wing's perpetual cheerleaders seem to be erratically getting triggered lately in random threads, still not clear range of topics that could cause it. Former GOP rising star Herman Cain tweets should not be that controversial.

    Rising star?

    Herman Cain had faded into the background, if anything, and was suffering with stage four 4 colon cancer, admittedly in remission.

    You know damn well throwing that Cain tweet in your post was done to mock him.

    "Ha Ha, stupid fool...standing up for freedom and it killed him!"

    If anything, he should be celebrated as willing to risk and give up his life in defense of freedom.

    Live Free or Die, right?

    And all of that is based on the assumption that he caught the Kung Flu at the Tulsa rally, which is in no way certain:

    On July 2, Cain's staff said there was "no way of knowing for sure how or where" he contracted the disease.[113] Dan Calabrese, the editor of Cain's website, said, "I realize people will speculate about the Tulsa rally, but Herman did a lot of traveling [that] week, including to Arizona where cases [were] spiking."[44]
    So you've taken someone who was willing to risk everything in defiance of controlling mask mandates, in spite of his known risks and severe underlying conditions, and turn his death into a shallow punch line to score a few disjointed political points.

    And you then wonder why people are getting pissed off at you?

    I meant to say 2012 election season Rising Star but stand by above comment as stated as it carries the same meaning. HC was solid enough of a star to be 2019 Fed Reserve pick. Rest is your personal interpretation, my intent was to show SD governor's social distancing stance as it relates to OP news story, having Cain cite it shows its popularity among GOP bases.

    Anyone saying that "insisting on not wearing masks in the face of an airborne infectious disease ( or plague as Trump puts it) is standing up for "freedom" is about as smart as saying that "Iraqi Freedom War was to defend our way of life". Don't think I need to convince anyone how smart GOP bases have been in making their political choices, no wonder progressive socialist democrats have firm control of both major parties today and so called "GOP base" has been catching on straws to cling to which ever 'rising star' it can find.


    Trump's pick for Federal Reserve is Herman Cain

    Apr 9, 2019 - White House officials doubled down on controversial plans to nominate two political allies of President Donald Trump to the Federal Reserve.

    @enhanced_deficit's posts are usually sarcasm. He's not as obvious as @TheCount- at least to me- but he definitely uses sarcasm to get a message across. He started this during the 2016 Trump campaign, when he was always shredded by the Trumpeteers for posting anything negative about Trump.

    Now posters are attacking him like they did Zippy- either because of their Trump-love or because they don't read sarcasm well.
    There is no spoon.

    If that line wasn't a joke/sarcasm, then you must not be aware of HC's freedom stances:

    May 25, 2011 - Cain expressed support for the PATRIOT Act...

    Why does Trump support the PATRIOT ACT?

    If you really thought that GOPA/DOPA masks messaging in the $4 Trillion 'war against the plague' was anything other than politics to game the gullibles, surprised as thought you were among the more insightful libertarians here.

    I understand that...that was my point, that it was in poor taste to mock a dead man to score a couple cheap political points, especially when nobody can prove that his actions regarding face diapering had anything to do with what actually killed him.

    And then to affect the "oh dear me, I have no idea why people are attacking me" routine on top of that, was equally distasteful.

    It's the messages he gets across using sarcasm that are the problem, they are usually lies or leftist talking points.
    I know it's your job to defend all the trolls and only the trolls but please try to come up with something less insulting to our intelligence.
