Our Fascist Governor supports Corporate Socialism

Last night at the Sioux Falls City Council Meeting when the Development Foundation was pushing the biggest boondoggle ever pulled on the taxpayers of Sioux Falls in the history of our city, State GOED director Steve Westra came to testify that the Governor was in support of the $94 million dollar TIF for Foundation Park.

I didn’t think of it until after I testified (FF: 49:00), but I found it ironic that Noem would complain about Communism and Socialism in Georgia yet support blatant corporate socialism for possible foreign communist investors.

The hypocrisy never ends with these folks.

I also made funny about the Municipal Band reach around (FF: 11:40).

It’s only socialism, or communism, when Democrats do it. When Republicans do it, it’s called workforce development. #EveryoneWillLiveInATaupeHouse

( and Woodstock adds: “Yah, workforce development for the fatherland, or the motherland”…. )

It may be true but labels such as fascist may apply but shouldn’t be used. Instead, Noem should be done for politically via voters. It’s to late in her term for impeachment. There are civil infractions for her later. She’s gonna need Trump lawyers.

There’s a new movement (Convention of States) calling for an article 5 leading into a 10th amendment. They propose term limits, one representative per state, universal health care, increased minimum wage, limit federal jurisdiction, etc.. Its become a majority. I’m not endorsing them but check it out.

Three takeaways from the Council meeting –
– Jeff Eckhoff – we don’t just want “yes men” and “yes women” in the small, exclusive group to approve expenditures from the $30 million slush fund, we want “quick yes men” and “quick yes women”.
They have no interest in satisfying pesky conditions or queries regarding use of this money.
Plainly stated, “the objective is to move forward.”
Unspoken, “Quickly and with little advance oversight.”

– Mike Gray essentially confessed, relative to the capital necessary to transform raw land to be suitable to receive industrial tenants, that the Development Foundation either doesn’t have a pot to pi$$ into, or that the various investment partners of the Development Foundation do not want to place (more of?) their skin in the game. Perhaps both.
Shades of, “the banks won’t even talk to us until we get a TIF.” [USD Discovery District].

– It’s cute watching socialists pretend they are legit businessmen.
