    They stole Mt Rushmore from the indians and put their graffitti on it.

    Wonder how much Crazy Horse Mountain is costing? They’re not taking any government money for it and it will be many times larger than Mt. Rushmore.

    allowing for inflation since 1927 Rushmore would cost $12 Million today. Not even enough to cover all the mandated government studies and regulations that would be needed to get a building permit.

    How much is it costing us to maintain it: repairs, upkeep of park and trails, restrooms, etc.?

    That was their sacred Black mountain, like a natural church. Native Americans, Indians ( Columbus got it wrong, it wasn’t India.)

    The Yellow Emperor or Huangdi1 is a legendary Chinese sovereign and culture hero,34 included among the Three Sovereigns and Five Emperors.5 Tradition holds that he reigned from 2697–25976 or 2696–2598 BC.1 His cult became prominent in the late Warring States and early Han period, when he was portrayed as the originator of the centralized state, a patron of esoteric arts, a cosmic ruler, and a lord of the underworld. Traditionally credited with numerous inventions and innovations,7 he is regarded as the initiator of Chinese civilization8 and said to be the ancestor of all Huaxia Chinese.9

    Some Esoterists claim that the machines depicted the Yellow Emperor using including moving tripods and a communications system that uses to the moon means he was some kind of extraterrestrial. Others say he had four-eyes too and came here to start the dictator system and even casts too. Silly things but interesting as well.

    It would take 14 year just for the mandated government studies.

    Whether or not anyone stole Mount Rushmore, the sculptor ‘put a good face on it’, four faces in fact!

    Rushmore upkeep pays for itself, ie the inflated motel and eatery prices in the area. Been there in 1944, 1951, 1970, 1997 on way to Pacific NW.
