"I believe Josh worked for Bill Emerson."

True

"Bill was not married to a union lobbyist."

Which Bill? Bill Emerson WAS a lobbyist who married JoAnn, the lobbyist.Bill "Emerson" ran for and was elected to the House of Representatives. After his death, JoAnn ran for his seat and was elected to the House of Representatives. So, 2 lobbyists married to each other.

"How is Josh Bill crazy?"

I recommend you google, Joshia Bill, Corn for Cars, Missouri...

NAME CALLING IS ALL YOU LIBERALS HAVE TO USE. THE OPPONENTS NEED A TOWN HALL STYLE DEBATE. JUST AS BOB PARKER AND JOANN EMERSON DO. DOUBT THAT HAPPENS. THE TRUTH HURTS AND I AM IN THE TRUTH TELLING BUSINESS! ANYONE HANGING FROM JOANN'S COATTAILS IS NO LEADER. MR. BILL IS A VIABLE OPTION TO MRS. REHDER. GLAD I COULD RUFFLE YOUR FEATHERS!

Union lobbyists with conflict of interests. Good history lesson though.

Byejoann sure seems to have more of a grudge against Joann then he should if he is a true republican. If he is a true conservative would'nt he be better served putting that hatred towards the democrats? Come November both should be on the same side no matter who wins the primary.

His attitude will not gain bulls**t Bob any votes. Bob's literature looks great and made me want to hear what he has to say. Him being a loose cannon turned me off to voting for him. But radicals like byejoann make me want to support Mrs. Emerson more than ever.

question for "bye joann"

Is Bob Parker in favor of a national sales tax instead of an income tax and if so can he explain why he wants to cut taxes for the rich and increase taxes for the poor?

byejoann, it appears the only reason you are against holly rehder is because she once worked for joann emerson. my guess is you are only siding with josh bill so you will have someone to share your sorrow with the day after both of your primary losses. although your mind should be plenty occupied the following 2 months taking down all of those parker signs.
if you need a joann emerson and holly rehder sign before the general just make a post on here. i am sure someone will bring them to you.

Of course you vote Republican in the general. You pick good candidates in the primary. Call me names. Like I said that is all you got. I take in to great consideration the company candidates keep. If I hang out with dopeheads people would think I was a dopehead. If I hang out with drunks you would think I was a drunk. If I hang out with establishment politicians you would think I was an establishment politician. Do you get it yet?

You obviously don't have a clue what I am talking about. Do some research about the fair tax or a consumption tax. It makes the rich pay their fair share and helps the poor. I recommend the fairtax book by Neal Bortz

I could vote for Holly if she had any substance. All I have heard was generic talking points. She won't be tied to Joann after Aug 7th. Might be smart to cozy up to Parker. Don't see the Joann yard signs moving very fast. Maybe Holly should put then out with hers. Can't do that Joann is becoming a bad word around here. The truth shall MAKE you free!

I'm quite familiar with the "Fair Tax". It's a ridiculous gimmick.

Do you hang out with Jim McMillen?

The "fair tax" is regessive. Plain and simple. If you REALLY know Josh Bill and still support him, you are crazier than he is. Big Bob is a teapacker and really isn't FOR anything. He's an empty suit.

I like the idea of not voting for the person with most signs out. I guess that leaves Bob Parker out.

I would have voted for Josh Bill, but I met him, and that is a reason to never vote for him. He is smarter than all of us and he will be more than happy to tell you. And if you don't agree he will argue with you until you do agree.

I have never been that much against Parker but Bill would be the worst thing that could possibly happened to Sikeston.

The only thing I have against Parker are the posts made by his childish supporters. I have to give props to Emerson for taking the high road and ignoring the childish comments by Parker's supporters.

Parker and Bill are not working together. They actually do not get along. Bill is my choice not Bob Parker's. I am simply saying we do not need another Joann Emerson. I would like to see Rehder and Bill debate so people could see what they are about. I want details not talking points.
Not real hip on having a cable lobbyist as our represenative. At least Mr. Bill knows what he is talking about. Like what was said before personality is fluff. We need someone who will fight for us not put on a dog and pony show. These hand picked politicians are the problem. If we keep putting them in nothing will change.

Again all you Emerson people do is call names. You can't defend her record so you deflect. Typical politicians!
I think we need someone smarter than us to lead us. Hello!

Joann is not a conservative. Vote for her if you want more debt and your children burdened with it. Vote for Holly if think Joann is a great leader.

Emerson WAS what most rational people would consider a conservative.... until you Tea Packers came along. It is true that she did not always follow the Party line. That's what many, many responsible politicans used to do.

Josh Bill? You want another crazo in office....go for it!

I give great credit to JoAnn for refusing to join the previous president in his quest to destroy SocSec.

But I would never vote for her.

Josh Bill is a BIG Emerson supporter. However, Josh does form his own opinions and marches to his own drum.

All i can say to Byejoann is you must be a member of Josh Bill's family. I have known the man for over 15 years and we get along pretty well. But i nor anyone i know that run in our same circles would ever want that hothead representing us in Jefferson City. Say what you want about Holly Rehder but she can make people listen to what she says rather they agree or not. And she does not leave a conversation with the intent of making others mad at her just to get her point across.

You know she may have been a cable lobbyist for a couple of years but isnt that her business? That is not really being the full fledged "evil lobbyist" you are trying to portray. I think most of us would agree she was just looking out for HER business. But then again i guess that is what Josh Bill is doing, selling property to build a dollar general store where one is not needed or wanted.

BTW definetly NOT an Emerson person. She is and was better than the Sowers guy that ran against her a few years ago though. But she dont act so immature in public, you remember when Parker kept yelling at her thru the parades like a five year old or like, oh i dont know byejoann would?

Seems to be a lot of similarities between you and Parker, it would not surprise me at all if you are one in the same. No that cannot be, because no one outside of Bill's family would come out and defend him. Welcome to Topix where the hotheads come together as one but refuse to use their real name.
