I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

     South Carolina’s new State Fossil comes with a Creationism clause in the legislation.

This is the most ridiculous disregard of separation of church and state I think I’ve ever seen.  A little girl in SC proposed the state make the Woolly Mammoth the official State Fossil, though lawmakers couldn’t agree to vote it into the record books until a “created on the sixth day” mention was added to the legislation.

Just stop it, South Carolina.  Christian Friends, can you please go handle your peoples because at this point I’m so secondhand embarrassed for y’all.

     South Carolina sheriff refuses to lower the flag for Mandela.


President Obama has ordered that flags across the country should be flown at half-mast this weekend in honor of Nelson Mandela.  Actually, it’s more like he recommended it since there’s no penalty for non-compliance.  Since there’s no penalty, the sheriff of Pickens County South Carolina has decided to thrust the Palmetto State back into the spotlight once again for being a boil on the backside of the Deep South.

     Measure to criminalize Obamacare passes South Carolina House.

Something must be in the water down in South Carolina, because they’ve had this same little independent streak for a couple of centuries now. “We’re gonna secede from the Union!  We’re gonna fly our Confederate flag over the Statehouse!  We’re gonna make Obamacare illegal!”  What the hell kinda Ignorant Punch are they serving down there at Lizard’s Thicket and Maurice’s BBQ?

     A three-way with your girlfriend and her cousin that ends in an assault.

Guess the location!

I was about 70% sure this was South Carolina just from the headline of the article.  I put another 20% on West Virginia and 10% on Alabama, but this just felt like a Palmetto State occurrence to me, and sho’ nuff…I was right.

     Charleston, SC student attempts suicide after anti-gay bullying.

Plot twist: The bully was his math teacher.

In South Carolina a teacher is accused of being an anti-gay bully, teasing and taunting a male student in class, calling the boy names such as “Gay,” “Gay Boy,” “Mrs. Pete,” and “Mrs. Peters.” The abuse became so bad the student became suicidal, eventually attempting to take his own life.

     Today in South Carolina: Don’t let your kids go to school with Tyshekka Collier’s kids.

Because if one of her brood gets suspended, she might bust up in the school to pick him up and start smacking some child that doesn’t even belong to her.

A South Carolina mother has been arrested after allegedly slapping a young boy she mistook for her son before apologizing and knocking her actual son to the floor.

     Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC): “Americans have questions about… the president’s validity.”

See, this is what happens when I stop focusing on South Carolina.  I’ve spent too much time paying attention to what’s going on in Virginia so of course SC has to tap me on the shoulder and say “hey now, over here, still crazy, don’t forget.”

So I guess we’re back on this whole The President is from Kenya thing for some reason.  

A kinder, gentler, more rational Republican party my ass.

     So this one time in 3rd grade I was asked to pick cotton on a school field trip.

I just saw this amazing video c/o Miss Jaki where this black guy tells a story about going on a field trip to pick cotton during his elementary school days in Alabama.

A lot of people who didn’t grow up in the South may find that weird, so allow me to spell it out as a Born & Raised Southerner:  Picking cotton was frequently an approved educational activity.

And they wonder why our test scores are so low down there….
