South Carolina To Root Out 'Subversives', Make Them Pay Five Dollars
I have to say, South Carolina's legislators are amazing geniuses. Faced with what I gather to be a concern that various groups of Americans might be plotting to overthrow the U.S. government, South Carolina has drawn a line in the sand and declared: "Is that so? Well, that will cost you a five dollar filing fee!"

Raw Story has more:

The state's "Subversive Activities Registration Act," passed last year and now officially on the books, states that "every member of a subversive organization, or an organization subject to foreign control, every foreign agent and every person who advocates, teaches, advises or practices the duty, necessity or propriety of controlling, conducting, seizing or overthrowing the government of the United States ... shall register with the Secretary of State." This law applies to any "corporation, society, association, camp, group, bund, political party, assembly, body or organization, composed of two or more persons, which directly or indirectly advocates, advises, teaches or practices the duty, necessity or propriety of controlling, conducting, seizing or overthrowing the government of the United States [or] of this State."

And, hey, if you subversives wouldn't mind, why not share the details of your plot to overthrow the United States with the state?


Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you to pay five dollars to pay state administrative costs.

Dus iedereen die "on-Amerikaans" is, moet zich laten registreren bij de overheid? "Other unlawful means" vind ik nogal vaag eerlijk gezegd...Ik zou toch politiek vluchteling worden als dergelijke gegevens bij de overheid bekend worden :?

Completely off topic, but still, I felt like I had to complement you on your taste for music. :love: Territorial Pissings

Plus: What is Huffington Post? I've never heard of it, but it looks quite crappy and politicised?

I like Territorial Pissings as well, but 1) I didn't write that post, it was from the Huff-Po, my bad if that wasn't clear 2) that phrase has been around a looooonnnnnnnnnnggggggggggg time, way before Nirvana.

Huff-Po is, mostly, crappy and politicized. It's supposed to be the liberal answer to Fox (pathetic, huh?) BUT, they do cover a lot of the really idiotic/crazy stuff you see on the right (while generally overlooking how absolutely spineless and stupid the left is).

Its good for shits and giggles. :D

I kinda like Huffington Post, because you get a lot of links and videos from original sources (like speeches, interviews...), instead of articles about them, like you would get in newspapers. It's great for fast "gossipy" political news.
There is no reason why good cannot triumph as often as evil. The triumph of anything is a matter of organization.
If there are such things as angels, I hope that they are organized along the lines of the Mafia.

Chicken Costumes Banned at Nev. Polling Places

Chicken costumes banned at Nevada polling places after Lowden's chicken quip

MARTIN GRIFFITH

Voters dressed in chicken costumes won't be allowed inside Nevada polling places this year.

State election officials on Friday added chicken suits to the list of banned items after weeks of ridicule directed at Republican Senate candidate Sue Lowden.

The millionaire casino executive and former beauty queen recently suggested that people barter with doctors for medical care, like when "our grandparents would bring a chicken to the doctor."

Democrats responded by setting up a website, "Chickens for Checkups," and by sending volunteers in chicken suits to her campaign events.

Lowden is in a 12-way primary race to decide Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's Republican opponent. She had been the front-runner in the race, but was in a virtual tie for the lead in a recent poll.

Under the new rule, chicken costumes will be banned along with political buttons, shirts, hats and signs within 100 feet of polling places.

Washoe County Registrar of Voters Dan Burk said such a costume would be an "inappropriate and obvious" advocacy message against Lowden.

Lowden campaign manager Robert Uithoven hailed the decision.

"I think voters will be spared the Harry Reid carnival and that's a good thing," he told The Associated Press. "I think most voters are going to the polls thinking about far greater things than Harry Reid's chickens."

Reid spokesman Jon Summers said the Nevada Democratic Party has been sending the volunteers in chicken costumes to Lowden events and he was unaware of any plans for them to show up at the polls.

"Maintaining fair elections is an important thing and we respect the decision that has been made by election officials," he said. "I certainly can understand why that would be a sensitive issue for her since she has been called out on her concept of bartering chickens for checkups."

Early voting began Saturday in the June 8 primary.

Yeah, I saw that Praetorian.

I got distant cousins out there, they were trying to figure out how many chickens would pay off a 150 buck (or, forgive me, BAWK) doctor's visit if she got elected.

Amazingly, the GOP there decided to select someone even crazier to rep them in the election.

I've given up trying to figure it out, or anything Sarah or her zombies say, watching my dog lick his nutts seems more intellectually rewarding.

Some slightly off topic news from my home state: that poor bastard Curtis Flowers is on trial for the umpteenth time.
