South Dakota vying to become asshole of US

Just as Gillette is leading in the contest to become the asshole of Wyoming, South Dakota is leading the United States in a similar race.
Politics alone isn’t a deciding factor when it comes to determining how many refugees South Dakota welcomes. A committee of stakeholders, including lawmakers, police and hospitals set goals for the program, and file an annual report to the federal government. [SD won't help feds place more refugees]
Of course in South Dakota all those stakeholders and special interests are Republican-owned.

Hunter/killers housed at Ellsworth Air Force Base and the 114th Fighter Wing in Sioux Falls are contributing to the refugee crisis yet South Dakota refuses to house the huddled masses? What a shocker! The crony capitalism that keeps South Dakota the 8th worst state for the working class living under the scourge of apartheid my home town of Elkton is struggling to find enough housing for migrant workers often living in squalor.

A Karen community was allowed to emigrate to Huron to do shit work white people won't do but the sect to which it belongs is christianic.

Refugees are far more at risk to white religionist South Dakotans than the refugees are to Rapid City or Sioux Falls. But you know what scares me? Someone from Yemen, Afghanistan or somewhere rolling a truck bomb into Rapid City Central or Sioux Falls Roosevelt after an Ellsworth-based drone operator or a pilot from the 114th Fighter Wing targets a wedding party or religious service in some Middle East hellhole.

The United States is a rogue nation and longtime sponsor of global terrorism. It does make one wonder how many civilians the American Empire is allowed to assassinate before bombings in New York City and stabbings in Minnesota look like rebel retaliation.
So the possibility there may be a militant on a life raft floating in the Mediterranean should not preclude us from extending a compassionate hand to a family of Syrians or Kurds or Iraqis. As it turns out, we need them. [Patrick Lalley, news director, Argus Leader Media]
The Argus invited this interested party to join its Facebook discussion group but like Dakota War College and Dakota 'Free Press' it is too sensitive to advertisers to allow dissent so it sent me into social media exile creating another political refugee.

In a related story Gillette is seeing massive housing foreclosure rates as the rats flee the fossil fuel sinking ship.

With the Argus Leader in the tank for the South Dakota Republican Party Patrick Lalley's job might indeed be better held by someone from Iraq but unfortunately Tariq Aziz is no longer available.
