The SDGOP-owned Department of Ecocide and Natural Ruination has come under the eye of another state enterprise:
A report [pdf] submitted by state officials to the EPA cites 166 lakes and streams in South Dakota as polluted or impaired. The bodies of water fail to meet government standards for clean water. Most of the polluted waters in South Dakota are due to non-point sources such as livestock waste.

Before Wednesday, Rick Weiland was simply the long-shot Democrat running in South Dakota's open Senate race that Republicans are poised to claim. For an attention-starved candidate who's spent much of the campaign warning about the Kochs and Sheldon Adelsons of the world, the McCutcheon decision was teed up perfectly for Weiland. "This is definitely in my wheelhouse," Weiland said. "It's the reason I'm running, and the reason I'm so outraged."

[The Guardian]A Nobel Peace Prize winner is calling for the prosecution of disgraced former US President Republican George W. Bush and sexed-up former British Prime Minister Tony Blair alleging that a conspiracy based on lies thrust war upon innocents.
Toby Helm in The Observer:
Archbishop Desmond Tutu has called for Tony Blair and George Bush to be hauled before the international criminal court in The Hague and delivered a damning critique of the physical and moral devastation caused by the Iraq war. Writing in the Observer, Tutu also suggests the controversial US and UK-led action to oust Saddam Hussein in 2003 created the backdrop for the civil war in Syria and a possible wider Middle East conflict involving Iran.Bush43 has cancelled trips to Switzerland and Canada as the Center for Constitutional Rights and other human rights groups prepared to submit a 2500-page indictment of the former President of US. A publicist for the former Dick-puppet cited concern that the visits could trigger violent protests.
