South Dakota State Legislature proves their complete and utter ignorance by killing Saba’s Bill promoting economic development

Somethings just make you shake your friggin’ head;

Yet on the same day that the Senate State Affairs Committee votes 6–3 to force open South Dakota counties for more CAFO business, the House State Affairs Committee votes 9–4 to kill an opportunity to open South Dakota for far more diverse business.

As you read the story, you will see that North Dakota is kicking our butts almost 2 to 1 in non-oil exports. Why? Because they have an office in state government that promotes direct business with international clients (since 2004), and here is the other kicker, it isn’t funded by taxpayers.

This was certainly killed because of partisan politics. Saba, a Democrat, has already been successful bringing one of many trade delegations. Shouldn’t our state government be supporting his efforts? The stupidity in Pierre is so immense they should rename the town to Ft. Putz.

You watch. Next year, this bill will be reintroduced with only Republican sponsors, then it will be totally embraced by the entire state legislature.

It’s like the bill concerning the driver’s license test and having it offered in Spanish. When a Democrat, Nesiba, authors it, it fails, but this year it will probably pass as long as all of the sponsors have a “R” behind their names.

The Republicans in Pierre are like the wicked step sisters who won’t allow Cinderella to go to the ball, but someday they will be surprised when the carriage finally arrives.

But that carriage will never arrive if Dems continue to obsess on marketing and trying to be Bloomberg Dems. Only when the Dems start to get serious about GOTV, voter registration, and an authentic message will their dreams come true.

When the state capital is 60 miles from an Interstate Highway, it’s primitive thinking because the pony express doesn’t get there often. Keep them drunk with enough spittoons and (as usual) the private sector will work around legislature ignorance.
