MONEY MONEY MONEY: laments Carlo, a Russian artist in the 1936 classic “My Man Godfrey,” who (ironically) freeloads on Carole Lombard’s fictional family, the Bullocks.
Today I received an e-mail from Nurse Beth Henderson, one of my opponents in the June 2 primary for the GOP nomination for U.S. House in Indiana’s 5th Congressional District. She bemoans other candidates spending $$$$$.
Nurse Beth has some pretty slick ads. She also has some pretty slick, monied interest groups to back her: NRA and anti-choice groups. She points to her experience in health care and ag. Oh, and she loves trump.
None - as in zip, zilch, nada, zero, nothing there - of her policy positions would indicate she aims to rid politics of $$$$$. NRA doesn’t pass out $$$$$ so the recipient can question laws NRA has shoved through at metaphorical gunpoint.
On her website she has a photo (one should infer of her) shooting a handgun with a caption: “shall not be infringed is not a suggestion.” That’s a threat that underlies so much pro-gun propaganda. She brags about her NRA rating.
“Nurse Beth” also is “pro-life.” I am sick of Republicans who claim to be “pro-life” yet support an incompetent under whose administration 100,000, people have died. The Federal government had plans on how to address pandemics.
Odd: the spell check program in the computer doesn’t recognize a plural form of “pandemic.” It must have been written before 1/20/2017, when the current occupant of the Oval Office had all the plans scrapped.
As to health care, Nurse Beth seems to toe the “Call it ‘socialism’ & scare everybody” line. I’ve said repeatedly: if “socialized” health care is bad, then USA’s health care system should #1, not #37 in the World, as a March, 2019, paper, for quality of health care notes.
If socialized medicine is bad, few, if any, countries, ranked ahead of us, should be systems in which socialized medicine is a large component of, or comprises, the entire system. Only 2 of the 36 countries ahead of us DO NOT have socialized medicine.
If in June 2's primary you want to vote for Republicans who will kill you - via incompetence at play vs COVID-19 that has killed tens of thousands - vote for Nurse Beth or any of my other opponents who backs this current regime.
For too long the bigotry and ignorance of a minority have ruled the GOP. The American people are THE shareholders in the not-for-profit corporation that is the USA government. The GOP was founded to advocate for all the people, not only a few.
MONEY MONEY MONEY: Nurse Beth’s laments should be met with the same response Mr Bullock delivers to Carlo near the end of “My Man Godfrey.” Carlo gets tossed out. If Nurse Beth has a problem with $$$$$ in the campaign, she can give it back.
If you live in Indiana’s 5th Congressional District and are disgusted with the GOP or both major
political parties, on June 2, or in early voting, ask for a GOP ballot and vote for me. We need real solutions - not the catch-phrases used by my opponents.
My name is Mark Small. I am a GOP candidate for Indiana’s 5th. I am pro-environment, pro-choice, anti-war and anti-dt. I believe in the traditional values of the GOP, not the bastardized values of Nurse Beth or dt and his minions. I approve of this blog. Hell, I wrote it.
