If you have been watching Sioux Falls television in the last week, be prepared for another two weeks of BS about our wonderful Senator Thune from the American Chemical Counsel. Just in case you missed the pollution of the air and airwaves ad, you can view Thune's wonderfulness in the eyes of cousins of the fossil fuels industry at link below:
You will notice that they laud him for his fictional hard work instead of his never-ending empty blather on behalf of his fellow retrograde Republicans in Congress. They also claim he is excited and thrilled to help small businesses and making sure that less government means more jobs (an impossible task incidentally).
If you have actually paid any attention to the congressional retrograde Republicans in their continuing attempt to make sure apparently that President Obama doesn't get a third term, you will know that small business and jobs are actually about the last things on their minds. Sen. Mitch McConnell, nutcase from the South, said the GOP first priority should be making certain Obama had only one term. See some video of the kind of thinking that has hampered job recovery and economic recovery for going on six years now below. The GOP hasn't given up yet on keeping Obama out of the White House by trying to rerun the Hoover campaign ideas..
John Thune has figuratively marched down the aisle with Mitch on his arm. Thune is about as interested in small business as were Henry Ford and the Rockefeller monopolists. Thune is about as interested in the environment and science as the Bible Beaters in the Scopes trial.were.
So, if you are going to break down and call Sen. Thune at 1-202-224-3121 as a result of the chemistry industry propaganda, let him know you are not amused by this double talk from the representative of polluted rivers, busted pipelines, hazy skies, wild fracking chemicals, drugs with more deadly side-effects than remedy and all the other threats to our and your children's health and safety.
Thune, like the rest of his smiling Republican co-conspirators could give a tinker's damn about we little people out here in the boondocks or our economic health and prosperity. He and They are interested only in spewing the already discredited GOP economic mythology as a campaign tactic. By now even somebody with an irrelevant Bible education like Thune has to know better.
Perhaps we can start running TV ads urging people to call Thune's bluff, bluster and buffoonery. Anybody with enough money to see if KELO wants more business?
