TIDBIT: SOUTH DAKOTA’S NEW MARS ADVERTISEMENT

April 26, 2015 By Joseph P. Farrell

Ms. B.H. shared this, and I love it, and have to pass it along. South Dakota, my home state, has apparently had it with all of this talk about going to Mars, and is making it clear that moving to South Dakota would be a lot cheaper, and a lot more fun. And fun, particularly for me, since it was an ad agency in my home town, Sioux Falls, that came up with the idea.

South Dakota: At least we're not Mars!

Now, a word of cautionary advice to my fellow South Dakotans: you don't want people from those states where you're running your ads to move to South Dakota. They'll give you an income tax, incredibly high taxes, bloated and completely incompetent state bureaucracies, public schools on the cutting edge of mediocrity and failure, and, quite possibly, turn the West River ranches and East River farms into the Dakota equivalent of California's southern San Jaquin valley.  You're doing just fine without them.
