    This is a violation of county law. Go bomb Mt. Rushmore

    • sara says:

      I think Morris had good advice. Bombing Rushmore would be
      equal to bombing the sacred mtn. Just because we have a lot
      of open spaces doesn’t mean they are meant to be demolished.
      I say get the military the hell out of here…We don’t need
      them here.

    Mount Rushmore is not conveniently located in the Pacific region. American Samoa could be another place to exercise.
