And she doesn’t even have a real college degree

That’s why she needs the fence, so there will be an orderly line of those looking for help from her at the mansion.

Perhaps, all of this will help her with some lifetime learning credits for a master’s in counseling, too? Isn’t that how she got her BS sheepskin from State?

First, Noem’s experience in agriculture is valuable. There’s a prevailing crisis due to planting postponement and exports. Her background and understanding will help.
Second, a degree is not that important. It proves you’re good at learning but subjects are often irrelevant. Bill Gates dropped out of college. I had an engineering business for 35 years without having a degree. Often, the business environment moves faster than education such that more is learned on the job.
Last, a degree is an important credential. I should think that all state and federal executive branch political leaders should be degreed.

First off Danny Two-Shakes, it is a editorial cartoon (satire), secondly, I could care less if she has a college degree, and thirdly the toon was about the irony of how Noem chooses to fix the problem.

This is all classic Republican. Create a problem intentionally or not, then figure a way to capitalize from it. No, I am serious. Noem is a Trump enabler and now she wants to help the people – and get some bonus points along the way – that Trump and his policies placed stress upon.

She did this same thing a few years ago with sequestration, and then later she had the audacity to establish a “concern” about hospital care on the reservations.

To truly understand the Republican mind one needs to spend sometime in business and especially sales. The whole Republican agenda and ethic is wrapped around a twisted self centered form of planned obsolescence and/or bait and switch, but with a political spin that plays with ones emotions.

While they claim the phone calls are anon and confidential, the conspiracy theorist in me says this is a way for certain peeps to gauge what farmers are in financial straights so the big guys have an easier time to swoop up some good land deals thru bankruptcy auctions. It also helps peeps who sell crop insurance. Wonder if Kristi knows someone who does that?

It’s what they call in sales, “prospecting.”
