Noem suing over fireworks is idiotic

Noem claims the Biden Administration is making this political? Really? Who is the one suing using taxdollars to spend more taxdollars on something most people don’t give 2-Sh!ts about. Noem has zero grounds to sue. The property is Federal not state, which she admits and she has no control over. As for a memo from Trump, that isn’t worth the paper it is written on. He is no longer the president, so it means nothing.

As for last year’s display, that was simply a taxpayer funded campaign rally for the Orange Menace and little else.

As for the fireworks, most people can’t attend anyway due to the lottery and most people don’t care. When I think of Independence day, I think of the great people in this country, it has little to do with a rock sculpture and Chinese explosives. Noem needs to concentrate on making the lives of working people in this state better and knock off her grandstanding.

Noem has taken her 2nd Amendment rights too far. And taken to an extreme, it can become 2nd Amental illness.

( and Woodstock adds: “I don’t think our Founding Fathers had bottle rockets in mind, but maybe M-80s attached to non reporting rockets, however…” (“Come to think of it, such attached M-80s would then need a longer fuse though”…))

When this reaches federal court, Noem will embarrass herself and the state. Federal property is federal control. It would have gone better had she not questioned the Biden administration and focused on how tourism affects SD revenue. Meanwhile, this becomes another bad impression. She went flying on a US tour with the state plane campaigning and supporting Trump. She showed her prejudice regarding Hispanics. She’s embarrassed the state. Her term can’t end soon enough.
