Tuesday Morning at 5 O'clock................

"As the day begins..."

Yes, I'm aware that it's really, "Wednesday Morning" in the song, but it seems fitting right now.

My sleep cycle is totally out of whack and likely to remain so since I'm working 3p-3a today.
Oh well. I'm awake right now so I may as well drop a Link Dump for ya.
We will start off with something from the "You People Embarrass Me for Being an American" Department-

'I'm going to destroy America and dig up Marilyn Monroe': British pair arrested in U.S. on terror charges over Twitter jokes
"Two British tourists were barred from entering America after joking on Twitter that they were going to 'destroy America' and 'dig up Marilyn Monroe'.

Leigh Van Bryan, 26, was handcuffed and kept under armed guard in a cell with Mexican drug dealers for 12 hours after landing in Los Angeles with pal Emily Bunting.

The Department of Homeland Security flagged him as a potential threat when he posted an excited tweet to his pals about his forthcoming trip to Hollywood which read: 'Free this week, for quick gossip/prep before I go and destroy America?'.."

Arrested them. Threw them in the clink and then sent their asses back to Briton. All because they are young kids that use funny language and the TSA/DHS are Fuckwits.

Tenth Amendment Anyone??

Oklahoma Legislator Introduces Bill Forbidding SCOTUS from Reviewing State Laws
"State Sen. Ralph Shortey (R-Oklahoma City) introduced Senate Joint Resolution 84, which would amend Oklahoma’s constitution to remove the U.S. Supreme Court’s ability to review the constitutionality of Oklahoma laws."
No, I don't really see this going anywhere, but I applaud them for doing everything and anything to decrease the stranglehold of federal power.

I see this as similar to the Georgia Eligibility Case going on right now. Probably not gonna pan out, but dammit, we can always hope!

Best Divorce Letter Ever/ NOT SAFE FOR WORK-

Dear Connie
It's old but still funny.
From the Weird Science Department- Zombie George Washington???

Capitol architect wanted to reanimate George Washington’s corpse
"George Washington wasn't only America's first president, he was also almost its first zombie."

Apparently this is a true story. Who knew?
Pretty cool anyway.
