New Rule In South Carolina Means Politicians May Smell As Badly as They Behaveby Tammy on September 3, 2016
So now at least in South Carolina you can smell them before they show up. Via Daily Caller. Politicians can no longer use campaign funds to pay for dry cleaning, according to 26 new rules passed Friday by the South Carolina House Ethics Committee stipulates. “We’re all trying to tighten up and be as specific as we can,” Republican Chairman of the Ethics Committee Kenny Bingham told The Courier. “The laundry list opinion is done to try to give some people some guidance because people are petrified of making a mistake and getting a negative newspaper article.” The unusual dry cleaning rule was one of 26. The 26 specific scenarios came from lawmakers who requested clarity on a number of...
Another “Green Energy” Boondoggle Goes Brokeby Tammy on November 30, 2014
**Bumped up from TAMWire. Posted by Maynard** Converting wood chips into ethanol sounds great, but they keep building expensive plants (with taxpayer support) that do not work and end up shuttered. The mastermind in this case is a billionaire and big Democrat bundler. See also Range Fuels. Billionaire Vinod Khosla’s big dreams for biofuels fail to catch fire Just over a year ago, billionaire venture capitalist Vinod Khosla was bubbling with optimism about one of his latest investments: KiOR, a biofuel outfit he said would turn wood chips into hydrocarbons that could be poured straight into a refinery, pipeline or vehicle… Now, however, the spell has been broken. On Nov. 10, KiOR filed for bankruptcy, leaving behind 2,067 creditors, including...
Did Nevada Give Hundreds Of Mental Patients One-Way Bus Tickets To California?by rickh on August 22, 2013
**Promoted from the TAM Wire, posted by rickh** Not enough funds to go all the way to Asylum Central- Washington, DC. Close enough for Govt Work. Via SF Chronicle. San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera is demanding that Nevada reimburse California cities and counties for treatment of about 500 indigent psychiatric patients who were given one-way bus tickets to the Golden State in recent years. Those costs include about $500,000 that Herrera says San Francisco spent on medical care, housing and other aid for 20 people shipped here in a practice sometimes called Greyhound therapy. In a letter to be sent Tuesday to Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto, a draft of which was obtained by The Chronicle, Herrera threatened...
Angela Davis & Hollywood: Audacity of Hope and Celebrity Dopeby Shifra on April 15, 2013
**A Post by Shifra** Usually, when deciding which articles to post on the NewsWire, I read them, assess whether the TAMS would find them interesting, and then, I move on. I mean, the news cycle changes so quickly that it seems as though we are constantly being barraged with new events/stories. But there was one article that “stayed” with me. And, not in a good way. More like a dull headache. It bothered me. A lot. From CNS News: Former Communist Party member and long-time radical left activist Angela Davis is the subject of a new documentary partly financed by Hollywood mogul Jada Pinkett Smith (wife of actor Will Smith), who praised the Lenin Peace Prize winner as a “figure...
Yay Humans! Celebrate ‘Human Achievement Hour’ Saturday at 830pm Your Timeby Tammy on March 23, 2013
** In honor of saving the planet by recycling, I’m bumping up this post from last year and updating certain links 😉 ** Competitive Enterprise Institute: “Supporting the freedom needed for humans to innovate so that our lives on earth are longer, healthier, and more enjoyable” Sure, a combination of hippies and leftists want everyone to embrace the Stone Age with “Earth Hour” on Saturday at 830pm your local time, but we here in the normal world celebrate Human Achievement! I especially like enjoying what planet Earth has given us in the form of coal by worshipping electricity and all the products it powers. All at once. Won’t you join me in turning on everything in your house/apartment/shack all at...
Roseanne Barr is Running for President. Again. Oh, with Cindy Sheehan.by Patricia on August 5, 2012
Preezy Roseanne Barr & VP Cindy Sheehan: now there’s a *new* Disaster Movie in waiting. Via Daily Caller. Actress Roseanne Barr announced Thursday that she is seeking the Peace and Freedom Party’s nomination for president, with anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan as her intended running mate. Barr sought the Green Party’s nomination earlier this year, but lost to Massachusetts physician Jill Stein. Her renewed candidacy, first reported by the Los Angeles Times, will likely hurt the lesser-known Stein’s footing. Stein’s running mate is also relatively unknown, unlike Sheehan, who became famous for protesting the Iraq War outside President George W. Bush’s Texas ranch. UPDATE: Green Party Watch: Roseanne Barr wins California’s Peace and Freedom Party nomination: Cindy Sheehan is VP nominee
Hippy Spiders and Youby Tammy on August 15, 2010
Just a tiny warning about what can happen if you get a little too comfortable on that hammock.
The Night Before the Tummy Cameraby Tammy on August 10, 2010
I’ll be off the radio grid completely tomorrow (Tuesday morning) as have my followup Endoscopy, where they knock you out and send the camera-thingy down to see how things are. This after a bleeding ulcer was discovered in May. While it is slightly nerve-wracking, I must say I’m grateful I live in a time when we have the science to do this. While sending the camera down they take a look at the throat and the esophagus and that whole area (I think last time they saw a sign that said, “Warning: Won’t Shut Up,” or something), and then down into the stomach. They should be grateful that they’re not doing this while I was on the Nexium, prescribed to...
Nature. The Boss of Us.by Tammy on June 30, 2010
Okay, more like the Boss of Hippies. I’m just sayin’. Oh, and it’s Arizona researchers who may be saving hippies from themselves 😉 Bags for life could have E.coli Bags for life could be a threat to shoppers’ health because they harbor potentially deadly food poisoning bugs, according to research. Tests on shoppers’ bags revealed half contained traces of E.coli, a lethal toxin which killed 26 people in Scotland in 1996 in one of the worlds worst food poisoning outbreaks. Scientists also found many were contaminated with salmonella. Reusable plastic shopping bags have become increasingly popular in Britain thanks to supermarkets and other retailers giving out millions of free ones to shoppers in the last three years…The tests were undertaken...
