Noem has always stated that she is for women and families but consistently votes against programs that support them. Now she voted against Violence Against Women Act because of the LGBT. Lesbians are women too, but I guess THOSE people don’t deserve protection

Noem and Thune each voted against Violence against Women bill. The Republicans always use the LGBT community as their voice against equality. What is it with these people? What part of ‘equality under the law’ don’t they understand. I don’t give two hoots about moral objections or bibilical phrases. Our government is secular. There is also freedom ‘from’ religion as ‘for.’ This is so tiring and I could never support any politician who thinks in such a way.

Well said John, this is a perfect example of how they try to interject their religious beliefs into the government. Anyone who believes that religion is not in government is naive.

Noem is the best representative I can remember. It would be great if she would run for and win the senate seat now held by senator Johnson. Then if Noem’s seat was won by another conservative South Dakota woud finally be really represented.

Fully represented? Or do you mean full control. As stated earlier she consistently votes against programs like Headstart and laws that protect women. But she doesn’t have a problem supporting farm subsidies. It is the “good ol boy” system and as long as you fall in line with the extreme you will be fine. They are all puppets and if they try and form their own opinions their careers are destroyed.

In a recent study Headstart has been proven to be completely ineffective. It is just an expensive babysitting service paid for by America’s taxpayers. Women and men are protected by the same laws. Why do you think their need to be special laws just for women? As long as Kristi keeps running for office she will keep kicking liberal Democrats butts and the liberals will keep whining about her while the majority of South Dakotans are very happy with her service.

@wildmouse: How do you get Head Start out of Violence Against Women Act? You’re really off topic here but here is something for you to chew on.
Garces, Thomas, and Currie used data from the Panel Survey of Income Dynamics to review outcomes for close to 4,000 adults followed from childhood. Among European–Americans, adults who had attended Head Start were significantly more likely to complete high school, attend college, and possibly have higher earnings in their early twenties than their nonparticipant siblings. African American adults who had attended Head Start were significantly less likely to be booked or charged for a crime than were their nonparticipant siblings. Head Start may increase the likelihood that African American males graduate from high school. In addition, the authors noted larger effects for younger siblings who attended Head Start after an older sibling.

The link provided is to a blog that the writer has an opinion that Headstart is ineffective. There is a link in the blog to the study and according to the study the writer is completely wrong and what’s more he never had a chance. The study was done by Headstart so surpise, they came out looking good.

Google ‘head start ineffective’ and you will find the same opinion was published in many other places including the left leaning New York Times and the Washington Post. The study found that there was no difference in how kids who went to Head Start and those who didn’t did in school later on.
Sorry, wrong again

Again, that’s an opinion piece. Look at the above posting by naughtydog. He uses data, not opinion.
Noem does nothing for the interests of SD. She’s a puppet.
