Thune struggling to remain hale hails halt to Hagel haggle




As their party collapses around them, Senator don Juan Thune (earth hater-SD) and his fellatos are becoming quite shrill. He just voted to expedite confirmation of Chuck Hagel for DoD.

Thune talked to Kevin Woster of the Rapid City Journal about why Willard Romney's trouncing in the last presidential election symbolizes the death of his party. KW wrote:
Thune thinks the Romney campaign spent too much time trying to tear down the president and not enough trying to build up Romney. "I think the Democrats better understand the modern political warfare," Thune said.
Woster says in another piece that Thune isn't the only GOPer worried about the old white man's party:
On frigid winter days in the wind-blown city of Pierre, state Sen. Stan Adelstein has been known to skip into the South Dakota Capitol. Former state Sen. Lee Schoenbeck of Watertown said the abortion debate caused a lasting split between him and Adelstein.
From Politico:
Rep. Bill Shuster and Sen. John Thune want FAA’s spending plan for normal operations, which “should have been produced” by October 2012, and two separate account-by-account plans: one for a full year of normal funding and one for a full year of a post-sequester budget.
South Dakota's earth hater governor is seeking US aid for cyber criminals.

The dying red state is inviting the firearms and ammunition industry to come pollute South Dakota according to this AP report published at SFGate:
South Dakota officials say they made some promising contacts with outdoors businesses while attending last month's Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show in Las Vegas. State Economic Development Commissioner Pat Costello says South Dakota officials have attended the show for the past 12 years.
Minnesota is still cleaning up after one of her 'job creators:'
The New Brighton/Arden Hills Superfund site, which is comprised of the Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant and its associated property, is a federal Superfund site located in Arden Hills, Minnesota. Contamination resulting from past ammunition manufacturing operations at the facility has been identified in groundwater, soil, sediment and surface water.

South Dakota, of course, doesn't give one shit about environmental protection or whom is killed by products manufactured in that struggling, red moocher state where liability for deaths due to firearms exist only in an alternate universe.
Several Sioux Falls area businesses will be represented on a trade mission to China with Gov. Dennis Daugaard in April. Each participant selected for the trade mission offers an opportunity to increase state exports to China and create jobs in South Dakota, according to the governor’s office. The trade mission to China is funded through an export promotion grant from the U.S. Small Business Administration.--SFBJ.
