  • 07:23:39: RT @SCLegislator: I just electronically filed my federal tax return. Doesn't matter what's in it because I didn't sign it. - ROFLMAO
  • 07:24:56: OK, so the previous tweet needs context... Gov Haley swears she didn't fill out this application.

Project 365, Day 17

A visitor came up to the back door. I've never seen this one before. The boys were unamused.

Quite possibly the best judicial ruling and opinion ever

Judge Clay Land tells Orly Taitz exactly where to go and what to do with her claims.

It's only 13 and a bit pages, and the sheer awesomeness makes it an easy read.

Our Governor is an embarrassment

First he vanishes.

Then he admits an affair, saying this was the first time.

Then it was two times, and one he had to pay back the state for.

Do I hear seven? Any more than that?

Gov. Sanford, this is for you:

I never voted for him, I swear

Thank you, Mark Sanford, for embarrassing the state of South Carolina. Again.

The Iran elections

Lots and lots of peeps on top of this, just want to point out a few highlights:

- @persiankiwi (Twitter)  is a young Iranian student living in Tehran, trying to keep the rest of the world updated. They hop from proxy dial-up to dial-up, trying to stay connected and ahead of the Iranian government's blockage of most of the internet.
- @austinheap (Twitter) is out of San Fransico, and is keeping a list of viable proxies for Iranians to use. There is also something about DDoSing the Iranian government's servers, I'll let your conscious dictate whether you think that would be helpful or not.
- @StopAhmadi (Twitter) is a Mousavi supporter who has good, current news and occasionally horrible pictures of the beatings the Iranian police are dishing out to their own people.
- nov11110 has a lot of videos up on YouTube from Tehran. Everything's in Arabic.

Much like the Bangladesh protests from a couple of years ago, I find myself watching this very closely. All I can do is pass the information along, so that no-one I know can say they didn't know.

SC Supreme Court tells Gov. Sanford to STFD & STFU

(I posted this over on LJ's ontd_p, but couldn't resist posting here, too)

The court voted 5-0, with Justice Costa Pleicones concurring in a separate opinion, that the General Assembly had the authority in passing the state budget to order Sanford to apply for the money. Sanford contended that a federal law passed in February gave him the sole authority to apply for the money.

The justices also issued a rare writ of mandamus ordering Sanford to apply for the money.

Here's the posted opinion

South Carolina Governor: Obama Stimulus Will Turn U.S. Into Zimbabwe

I wish I was making this up.

Huffington Post quotes CNN, local newspaper, and Politico, so that shoots the "it's just a joke" theory out of the water.

Money quote:
Sanford: "What you're doing is buying into the notion that if we just print some more money that we don't have and send it to different states, we'll create jobs," he said. "If that's the case, why isn't Zimbabwe a rich place?"
--Yeah, just ignore the fact that the leader of the country is a CORRUPT DICTATOR... unless he's also trying to compare Obama to Mugabe

Some things can only be expressed by macros... )

There are days when I really really really really hate the people who run my state. I keep voting against them, and they keep coming back...

It's sunk in

Yeah, I watched the Inauguration yesterday, but that was a party.

This... this makes it sink in.

BRB, my eyes have something in them...
