    Update on site issues: (1. replies now need a title *and* something in the message box, 2. certain links are causing strange pop-ups on Apple devices, and 3. Some folks can't type anything into the text box.) Basically, a series of unfortunate events set us back on testing. We'll get to it as soon as we can, and hopefully things can get fixed by this weekend if not before.  More info: https://jackpineradicals.com/boards/topic/site-problems-more-info/

    1. The firm Howard Dean works for was named Russia Law Firm of the Year in 2016

    Governor Howard Dean is a Senior Advisor in the Public Policy and Regulation practice at Dentons. He focuses on health care and energy issues, as well as providing expertise derived from his extensive experience in public office.

    A recognized thought-leader in health care reform, Governor Dean works with clients to navigate complicated regulations and political challenges in both the private and public sectors. Through partnering industry with business and community interests he is at the forefront of promoting high quality and affordable health care while supporting innovation.

    Respected for his fiscally moderate policies as Governor, he understands first-hand the severe budget constraints that are challenging state and municipal governments. With an extensive set of contacts nationally, Governor Dean is uniquely positioned to develop partnerships between industry stakeholders and local governments.

    Governor Dean comes to Dentons after serving as Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, where he created and implemented the “50 State Strategy”, encouraging the cultivation of candidates in every state at every level, rather than solely the traditionally democratic-leaning states.

    But it’s OK when neoliberals are associated with pro-Russian firms, right?

      If you dislike Trump, you should vote for him so we can change his party from within. Yes, Hillary supporters, this is how ridiculous you sound.
