Your Two Cents for Oct. 12

Two Cents

Noem forced all schools to prominently post “In God We Trust.” Since rich people enjoy our outstanding tax haven state with financial trusts and no income tax, perhaps the truth is, “In South Dakota We Trust.” Jesus, please come back and remind us of Christian teachings regarding money.
