May Jesus protect us from that Evil affordable care act

Like I have said before, the US Senate race for Johnson’s seat is one big bore. We all know who our next senator will be, and this next year and a half will be a gigantic waste of our time. But Dr. Bosworth is making things a bit more interesting.

In her announcement today, in the back of her dad’s truck on his farm, with a US Flag draped over a tractor loader in the background, she announced her intent. While her family figured out that wearing a t-shirt and jeans when in the back of a Jeep Honcho is probably the most appropriate attire, Annette decided to dress for an afternoon tea party, wearing a suit coat and skirt. At least she didn’t have a pitchfork in her hand.

Before the festivities started we got to listen to some woman sing songs about liberty, freedom and god. Fun stuff, real chart busters. Then Bosworth climbed the family foot stool, scraped the cow shit from her high heels and pledged not to raise our taxes, ridding us of the ACA and then in a strange twist babbled about Jesus, all the while the family dog barked their approval in the background (didn’t anyone think to put it in the house).

Here’s a few NO NO’s;

1) When announcing in a pick-em-up-truck on a farm, dress accordingly. A sprint car t-shirt with a Tom Sawyer hat would have looked more appropriate.

2) Politicians who wear their religion on their sleeves are usually charlatans using religion to get votes. Mentioning you are a Christian or any religion for that matter, is fine, but Jesus was no Republican, and I am pretty sure he would approve of affordable healthcare for all, the prophet and the son of god (which ever you believe in).

3) Get a REAL platform, tell us why you want to HELP us in Washington, not how you want to take benefits away from us.

While I still think the ACA should have included single-payer, there is good things in it. How about focusing on the benefit of the ACA and reforming the rest to make it better? Just a suggestion.

Try as I might, I still can never balance politicians who remind us of what strong Christians they are and yet who at every turn try to take away benefits from those who are most vulnerable.

I’m certain Jesus would have been trying to repeal the ACA too… just like he would have packed the farm bill with billions in pork to corporate farms while not adding a single penny for food programs targeted towards those who need them. :eyeroll:

Craig, I agree with you. I used to have a good little “ditty” similar to that. I will have to see if I can find it and type it in the next day or two. Actually I just found it, it wasn’t buried as deep in my pile of junk on a corner of my desk as I thought it was. It was by Stephen Colbert. “Jesus was always flapping his gums about the poor—-but not once did he call for tax cuts for the wealthiest two percent of Roamans. And don’t forget—Jesus hung out with tax collectors and prostitutes—-no good conservative would be caught dead with tax collectors.”

I think it looks like her flag is almost touching the ground. Wouldn’t the front end loader go any higher up or couldn’t she have used a smaller flag? Also isn’t it kind of disrespectful to the flag to be hung from a front end loader?

#4 Testor15 on 07.16.13 at 6:46 pm

Joan, I guess it all depends if they got all the pig crap off the loader before they hung it?

Just what we need – a South Dakota Michelle Bachmann. She and Larry Rhoden who announced he has taken Norquist’s pledge not to raise taxes are going to make choosing Rounds in the primary the only choice of bad choices. Bosworth wants to take this country back from the politicians who do not serve our communities and who are disconnected from our needs. Rhoden has to hide behind a pledge so he doesn’t have to make an independent decision. This should be an easy primary for Rounds and yet he will continue to raise a ridiculous amount outside state money in state that votes blindly for a Republican ticket without an independent thought. The state is full of political sheep.

So if she doesn’t believe in Obama care, does she refuse to take the money for payment? Does she refuse insurance? Does she still live in her RV?

#7 Detroit Lewis on 07.16.13 at 10:14 pm

She lives in LuLu land.

#8 Winston on 07.16.13 at 11:13 pm

She hates the ACA, but yet she wants to protect life…. hum?

Did “Jesus” take from the rich and middle class to give to those in need? Did “Jesus” treat the rich better than the poor or vice versa? And since you are pontificating on what “Jesus” would do, would he be pissed that Mcribs are only served periodically?

Jesus didn’t eat McRibs, he was Jewish, of course there probably isn’t any real pork in them anyway.

I am just glad there are people willing to run. I do not agree with people openly preaching about their Christianity and religion as I have always felt that comes from action, not your mouth, and usually those are the people trying to convince themselves they are these amazing people instead of the latter, but she is running and it offers a different flavor. Although I am a Repub – Rounds should have to “earn” this seat and if anything, Annette will keep this entertaining.

Here in lies the difference in the two parties: Repubs – 3 candidates, Democrats – 1 candidate. WTH? Democrats wonder why they can’t pull their head out of the crapper. Nothing against Rick Weiland as I actually like the guy, but this is a been there, done that option. Where in the hell are the Dem candidates? This is a Senate seat for cripes sakes and Dem candidates have won in the past. You have no up and comers? If that is the case, that is this party’s fault and the constant bitching about Repubs having all of the control in this state is your own fault. It is no secret why Stephanie didn’t run. The Dem party pitted their two viable candidates against each other and now neither one is running. Congratulations!

The Repubs on the other hand have ZERO viable candidates – yet one of them will win.

#13 Karma on 07.17.13 at 1:27 pm

Do something about it. At least there are people willing to run and give people a choice. As I said – it has been proven more than once that Dems can win. Where the hell are their candidates? You had two viable, strong candidates but your party allows itself to “eat its own” for lack of a better phrase and now neither are running or are really involved. You can’t blame that on anyone but the party itself.

I mean for cripes sakes, Tom Daschle came out in support of Rick Weiland, which I have said is a nice guy, but is he really your strongest candidate? I guess we’ll find out how much he is willing to campaign and support Rick because as of now – he is your only candidate and in my mind – was 3rd in three choices for a possibility.

Cory at Madville Times brings up her missed deadline in a land raffle.

I’m sure the raffle mess up was just an oversight due to all the excitement of campaign announcements — but tell that to anyone that put up a grand and was waiting to see if they won.

I’ve said previously on this site that she is a moron. And not a shot in hell of getting over 5000 votes. Frankly i think she has a screw loose and is being pushed by ill willed repubs who want to bury the Tea party for good.
With that said it’s again hugely hypocritical for all of you to poke fun of her using religion in her political speech and then go on to refer to religion in your political posts.

You are a complete moron if you think Christ would be associated to either of these political parties.

I’m am positive Jesus, Allah, Buddha and whatever god the folks at Greenpeace pray to would find all those Obamacre exemptions the Unions and people from Nancy Pelosis’s district has received as an OUTRAGE.

Party politics will never be cleaned up when you ignore the problems within your own.
