Representative Lora Hubbel posted this to her face book page Saturday
“PROCESS” …a series of actions bringing about a result. In Pierre we were told to respect the process…the process that brought in ObamaCare…that Brought in Cap/Trade…that brought in REAl id. Yeah right…the process of going along to get along has socialized SD. The next time your legislaor tells you he can’t vote a certain way because of “the Process”, tell him that the “process” has gotten us socialism
That got followed by several comments:
I can think of SEVERAL legislators who are all about the process.
There is a full court press everyday with people professing what is the best interest of the Caucus/state, lecturing new legislators on historic customs that they should adhere to in order to “respect the process.” My dear friend Lora is fearless in challenging those assertions with her kind manner, gentle voice, & perisistant questions. She, like I, respect the open government debate the issues in the public eye on the House floor process.
It is my opinion that some legislators are a part of the “process” because they want to be vague. Some also like to hear themselves talk, talk, talk about everything and try to earn themselves personal attention to seek higher things. That is when a part of the process becomes their own self-seeking goals and removes them from law maker status to politician.. this is part of the process…theirs.
Whoa there! The process may have delivered Obamacare, Cap and Trade(tax), and REAL id, however the process is not responsible. That same process also brought us our abortion law and the law the prohibits school districts from hiring non-certified counselors among others.
That doesn’t mean the process isn’t broke.
Having worked in different positions, I can say there is no one ‘best’ process. Some of the best processes are developed over time with many people adding their knowledge and experience to make process that much better. As our society changes, should the processes.
Some process have been around for some time, and they have worked and still might get the job down. However there might be a much better, easier and faster to achieve the same result, that veterans haven’t considered, because they are bogged down in their own process.
To our freshmen, watch, listen, learn and try understand what veterans you have to show you. They have experienced many things. Respect what those come before you have done. However don’t accept things at face value, ask questions, and bring your knowledge and experiences to the table.
To our veterans, don’t be so quick to dismiss the freshman’s questions or ideas. Sometimes it takes a pair of fresh eyes to find a problem, that you have over looked and come up with a solution that you have never thought of. Be a part of the solution. Do yourself a favor, and remove the pharses from your vocabulary, “becuse that is how it is done” and “That is the way we have alway done it.” Those dogs don’t hunt anymore.
Don’t let the process get in the way, let the process move things forward. When the process gets in the the way, it is time for ‘The Process’ to be processed
