Will the hypocritheocrisy never cease? Rep. Kristi Noem voted nay on the Violence Against Women Act and now she is out soliciting donations from conservative white breeders?
By law, those who shop online are required to pay a sales tax to their respective states, but few, if any, do because there is no mechanism now to track these online sales. Federal legislation, rather than state-by-state, seems to be the only solution to this situation. Earlier this year the U.S. Senate did pass the Marketplace Fairness Act which has gone nowhere in the U.S. House. Then there are some House members who say they simply cannot support the bill because they see it as a tax increase. South Dakota Rep. Kristi Noem wouldn’t say how she would vote if the issue does reach the House floor. [Custer County Chronicle]

South Dakota's embattled GOP governor appears to be pleading the Fifth:
Bob Mercer: While lieutenant governor or as governor, were you aware that the Hanul law firm based in California and South Korea was active in South Dakota's EB-5 operations, via the South Dakota International Business Institute and later via SDRC Inc. in Aberdeen?
Dennis Daugaard: I became aware of the Hanul law firm in a briefing after I became governor. By that point, Hanul law firm was no longer working with the state. I believe the firm may have still been working with SDRC, but of course our contract with SDRC has now been terminated.
The Rushmore PAC blog is an earth hater's wet dream. One of its authors is a Zionist state senator known for his close association with South Dakota's Church of the Holy Roman Kiddie Diddlers. Dan Lederman panders to his white readers recently assailing President Obama by quoting Robert L. Bradley, Jr., a shill for Koch Industries. The earth haters believe that drilling willy-nilly is the answer to high fuel costs.
State Senator Dan Lederman of Dakota Dunes says the Polsinelli Law Firm has been holding meetings in other Missouri River states to discuss the possible legal action with other property owners impacted by the flood. He says today’s meeting is designed to provide information about what such legal action would entail. [KCCR Radio News]
Recall Lederman's role in the Missouri River flooding of the swamp at Dakota Dunes where he built a temple for self-worship.

He was on Bill Janklow's idea of public radio in Spring, 2011 defending his decision to build in a floodway. Lederman was recently fingered for bringing anti-government speakers to his infamous red state.

A new app measures how long people last in bed, along with other sex indicators to determine who is having the most and longest sex around the nation. New Mexico is the place to be for marathon sessions between the sheets.
This Fresh Air driveway moment will pop your bubble if it doesn't completely scare the shit out of you:
The Horten brothers were involved in the flying disc crash in New Mexico. And that is from a single source. ... There was an unusual moment where that source became very upset and told me things that were stunning that's almost impossible to believe at first read. And that is that a flying disc really did crash in New Mexico and it was transported to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, and then in 1951 it was transferred to Area 51, which is why the base is called Area 51.
Wait til you hear the REALLY freaky part:
