Fascist Fun Haters once again are thumbing their noses at South Dakota Voters

As I suspected, when the Fascist Fun Hating Right Wingers don’t get their way in an election they go for the jugular;

Before I tear into the core legal arguments, I want to note the weird plaintiffery going on with the election contest Pennington County Sheriff Kevin Thom and South Dakota Highway Patrol Colonel Rick Miller have filed to block enactment of Amendment A, the marijuana legalization South Dakota voters approved on November 3.

Of course, this is NO surprise. I predicted before they even gathered one signature if this got passed the Fun Hating elite in South Dakota would go after it in the courts.

If you read Cory’s finely written posts about it, on it’s face, I would agree with him, the case is very weak. Heck even the SD Chamber agrees. But what makes this so arrogant and a rat fink move is simple;

• Public officials are using public money to overturn a public vote.

This should even piss off the biggest of Anti-Pot folks. It seems the SD Fascist Republican Party and it’s stooges are just fine with your public vote when you are expanding gambling or electing a super majority to the legislature and constitutional offices, but when someone wants to smoke a left-handed cigarette, that’s a no no.

I have never understood why they have been okay with holding this super majority for over 4 decades (from a vote of the people) but when these actual voters want something for themselves like a minimum wage increase, corruption reform or to get rid of pay day lenders, the vote seems out of whack and misguided.

It’s something we call hypocrisy folks.

And as for legal pot, I’m afraid the only place you will probably even see a glimpse of it in our state by July 1st will be on the reservations where the tribes have been preparing for this for years.

Even if you don’t want to partake, I get it, but I still maintain these truths to be self-evident;

• People are currently using pot in our state, the arrest records show this. They will continue no matter how these challenges turn out. They mostly get it from Colorado. So why do we continue to fill the coffers of the state of Colorado when we can fill the coffers here, while freeing up millions in justice related costs? It’s fricking baffling. Just like the rats that are constantly trying to kill our fun in South Dakota. Now go to Deadwood and bet on your favorite sports team, that’ll get you high.

Pot is here. Some want the antiquated no longer manufactured brick cell phone instead of a smart phone. As usual, works for Indian reservations. Take the revenue from metro areas and expensively jail anybody with a little vegetation in their pocket. Cops could use weed when a stop had no other charge. It was the best way to turn out Colorado migrants. South Dakota is known for its isolationism.

A 1986 amendment to federal law allows tribes to acquire off-reservation land to serve the needs of its people so the Oglala Lakota Oyate bought property on I-90 just outside Badlands National Park. The Isanti Dakota Oyate or Flandreau Santee Sioux Nation has also taken steps to resume their cannabis initiative. A former chairman of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate is a tribal liaison for a cannabis development firm and South Dakota Secretary of Tribal Relations Dave Flute is also a former chairman of the SWO.

If Amendment A survives the court challenge South Dakota’s law enforcement industry is pushing for potency caps and state-owned dispensaries but Big Dope Columbia wants to control legal cannabis in South Dakota.

As President Joe Biden is taking the Oath in January Trump Organization-appointed US Attorney for the District of South Dakota Ron Parsons will be leaving office freeing tribal governments to better exercise their sovereignty.

Aren’t these events inevitable? Everything happens with pain and privilege. I am acquainted with Ron Parsons. He represented me in state Supreme Court. I have nothing to say except where’s he’s headed is a good direction.

It’s Christmas Time; time to shop for the right Republican judge.

Time will tell, however, if the genius of the Democratic struggle to broaden its base in the state can be found through a Republican courts ill-handling of this matter.

Is common sense the reason republicans seem smarter than you clowns, or are they just smarter by nature?

Actually, Republicans are greedier, and thus, their wealth makes them “look” smarter.
