It's the kind of transparent and blatant corruption that TFG practiced in the White House. And that's why his fans will eat this up like it were candy.
 
2021-09-27 9:24:36 PM  
Isn't that an abuse of power? Yeah I know, rhetorical questin
 
2021-09-27 9:24:42 PM  
Well, that's better than Moepotism, where your boss can poke your eyes out.

Isn't this the same kind of bullshiat that forced Sarah Palin to resign or face prosecution?

The fact that the story is published at all is a personal attack on Noem and proves that she's so good that the libbies are running scared.

Hey, maybe file a complaint with the State AG when he's not busy drunkenly killing people.

"The Associated Press is disparaging the Governor's daughter in order to attack the Governor politically - no wonder Americans' trust in the media is at an all-time low," spokesman Ian Fury said.

There should have been an immediate follow up asking for the governor's opinion on Hunter Biden.

She called the woman in to meet with her, her daughter, and like four senior government officials.

In a stunning turn of events, the press really started to pay attention to Gov Noem's abuse of power as soon as she announced on Twitter that The Media had Gone Too Far by coming after her (adult) children.

If we're going to complain about people holding onto jobs for too long, we could focus our ire on people like Chuck Grassley and Dianne Feinstein who are both in their late 80s and will likely die in office. A state government department head who is 70 is pretty small potatoes in comparison.

I used to program for a company that wrote appraisal software. There is a bit of skill involved, between knowing costing standards and various legalities in whatever area you are in. It's not just saying that house x is worth "whatever". It's more intricate than people tend to think.

This is all Republicans do now when they get into power: They help their friends and families. That's why they don't have a platform anymore -- they didn't even present one at the last RNC. Because they don't have one. They're not in it for public policy or legislation or things that might help Americans. They just want the power. The elitism. The exclusive perks and bennies that come with being above the law and everyone under it.

Somebody has to call Fascists Republicans on their corrupt acts, and it's not as if Fox Propaganda is going to do it.

Got no argument from me. Go raise show-cats or something you old farkers.

I doubt the overpaid underworked head of this agency is struggling.

Oh and Noem can go burn with all her corrupt republican cohort by the way.

This is all so pathetically sad: "While trainees make as little as $10 an hour, certified residential appraisers can launch their own businesses and can make more than $50,000 a year. "

You need Mom to help you out so you can get that $50K/year?  Quite the bar to trip over.

Noem literally gave her a $40,000 a year job, then gave her a really big raise.

This is after that.

Let me tell you how dumb you have to be to be able to pass. My asshole pot smoking brother-in-law gave up twice on his "coursework" before finally finishing, then on the day of the "exam" had a fight with family, went out got drunk in an effort to take out his failure-rage, then went and somehow passed his farking exam, got a goddam license.

We're talking micro-levels above dumbshiat, drunk, stoned, clinically classified as an imbecile here.

No offense to real estate professionals.

Palined Parenthood: Sorry I'm late. Is this what running your government like a business looks like?


Yes.

Because in a market economy there's one thing that a business has to be able to do in order to promote effective competition. It's also the one thing that governments have regulations and guardrails to prevent from happening... but if you run them like a business, it's also the one thing governments must be able to do in order to extract maximum value.

Fail. They must be able to fail.
