Yesterday I wrote about North Dakota Democrats throwing a hissy fit over Republicans voting down a $1.2 million appropriation to give school kids a third helping of milk or juice (media reports have claimed it was only a $500,000 appropriation, but that’s inaccurate as the bill shows).

In their attacks on Republicans for killing the bill, Democrats have cast themselves as the defenders of the state children.

The Non Partisan League of Democrats is as corrupt now as they were in 1921 when Gov. Frazier was removed from office. Sadly, we, in North Dakota, have a bunch of Republicans that are as bad or worse.
