Breaking: Hours after SC Supreme Court hears arguments in case to expand absentee voting, law passed

BREAKING: Hours after the South Carolina Supreme Court hears arguments in our case to expand absentee voting, the legislature passes law to expand absentee voting.

COLUMBIA All South Carolina voters will be able to request a mail-in absentee ballot for the upcoming June 9 primaries due to the coronavirus pandemic after state lawmakers approved a short-term bill Tuesday that added the ongoing state of emergency as a legal justification.

The unexpected move came just hours after a state Supreme Court hearing over the same issue, as South Carolina Democrats argued that the state痴 limited absentee voting law would force many voters to risk their health in order to vote next month.

Buckle up, everyone. Gonna be a bump(stock)y ride

Shanghai Disneyland has reopened!

Live stream

Everyone is wearing a mask

And one thing of note: no one is overweight. I致e been watching for 10 minutes and I haven稚 seen one overweight person

Will be interesting to see what happens with case numbers around Shanghai by next weekend

EDIT: A man had his little girl on top of his shoulders and a couple photographers came in to take their picture. All of a sudden a throng of photographers came in and crowded all around to take pictures of them. What looked like management of the park came in and started separating all the photographers right away.

It's. Too. Soon.

So, I知 now sitting outside, enjoying a nice evening rain shower. Calming. Needed after waiting an hour for food from a local Italian place. Ended up getting a refund as, after 90 min since order was placed online, they hadn稚 even started the order yet. Several others were getting refunds too. So we ended up with Arby痴 for Mother痴 Day dinner!

But the restaurant

It痴 small. Maybe 8-10 tables. 6 were set up for reservations and I never saw fewer than 3 seated

Two other tables and some random chairs had been commandeered by people like me, waiting for a to-go order. I壇 already waited 20min past estimated time in the van in the parking lot

Cashiers had masks but kept pulling them down or off. Some guests had masks but would pull them down to talk (wtf? You can talk thru a mask!)

Most waiting didn稚 have masks. A very elderly group was in there dining and eventually left and they were not wearing masks

A pregnant woman came in to pick up an order. She looked to be about 8 months (why wasn稚 hubby in there??). She had a mask but it was pulled down around her neck. She never had it over her face.

We池e fucked

Moments away from 80,000 dead from Covid-19 in the US

So many preventable deaths and hospitalizations and lost jobs and ...

United States

Coronavirus Cases:




Whatever she's saying, she MEANS it!


Multiple tweets re: MSNBC saying about 3 dozen Secret Service agents are positive (11 active...)

Several dozen more quarantined

Anyone watching MSNBC to confirm?


According to the DHS document, along with the 11 active cases there are 23 members of the Secret Service who have recovered from COVID-19 and an additional 60 employees who are self-quarantining. No details have been provided about which members of the Secret Service are infected or if any have recently been on detail with the president or vice president.

Sweet Tomatoes will close permanently

ORLANDO, Fla. - Sweet Tomatoes will be keeping their door closed permanently after shutting down during the coronavirus pandemic, according to reports.

The buffet chain's parent company reportedly decided to close all 97 locations of Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes, including those in Florida. CEO John Haywood confirmed to the San Diego Union-Tribune on Thursday, People reported.

The move will affect more than 4,000 employees who will essentially be laid off.


Haywood said the company has been losing about $1 million a week after shutting down in mid-March due to the global pandemic.

$1 million/wk seems like small tomatoes, er, potatoes

But. As I致e said before re: possible other companies (esp those undeserving of a bailout), someone else will buy up the assets and reopen as something else

Remember when...

...one could easily list all the crimes and corruption of a Republican administration? And recall details of all those?

I can稚 even begin to list everything the #TraitorTrump admin has done in less than one term. Much less remember all the details of even one of them

The Bush admin made it a little tough but I still remember most all the neocons that lied us into invading Iraq: Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowiz, Elliott Abrams, Doug Feith, Condi Rice, Stephen Hadley, Scooter Libby, Michael Ledeen, Larry Franklin, John Woo, Jay Bybee, David Addington and more.

Other foreign players involved: Curveball (the main source of the false WMD intel), Manucher Ghorbanifar (Iran-Contra player who worked w/Ledeen and Franklin to help cook up fake intel and possibly gave info on the 9/11 attacks in the infamous meeting in Rome)

All that still easily recalled more than 15 years later

As for this admin, geez, I致e read both of Seth Abramson痴 books (Proof of Collusion and Proof of Conspiracy). The footnotes of all the citations make up an entire book on their own!

Trump, Trump Jr, Kushner, Erik Prince, Michael Flynn, Steve Bannon, Roger Stone, Michael Caputo, Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort痴, Corey Lewandowski, George Papadopoulos, Carter Page, Felix Sater. Foreign players: Putin, Erdogan, Saudi痴 MBS, Kislyak, Firtash, Deripaska, Agalarov, and the big one: Mogilevich.

But all the details are too numerous to get into. At a high level it痴 money laundering via commercial and residential real estate, oil and gas investments, nuclear technology shared with Middle East nations, human and sex trafficking, foreign influence on US policies and elections, arms sales, sanctions or the removal of sanctions, trump org grifting and Emoluments Clause violations and much more

History classes in the future will need to spend entire semesters on just this admin alone
