A Slow Saturday, Novemer 6th

Surprise, surprise! It seems some people in California have a hard time understanding what the state-issued debit cards are being issue for:
California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger says welfare recipients can no longer use state-issued debit cards at medical marijuana shops, psychics and other businesses whose services have been deemed “inconsistent with the intent” of the program. The Governor sent a letter to county welfare directors Monday announcing that ATMS and point-of-sale card readers in such businesses will be removed from the network that accepts California’s Electronic Benefits Transfer cards. Other businesses affected by the ban include bail bond establishments, bingo halls, cruise ships and tattoo parlors. In June, Schwarzenegger barred welfare cards at casino ATMs following a Times report that CalWORKS cards were being used to withdraw cash in more than half the casinos in the state.

A panel of three judges at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral arguments on the constitutionality of Arizona Senate Bill 1070. The bill requires state law enforcement officers to check a person's immigration status under certain circumstances, and authorizes a warrantless arrest in cases where there is probable cause to believe that the person has committed an offense.


On this day in history in 1860 Abraham Lincoln (R-Ill-Rep) elected 16th President and in 1923 USSR adopts experimental calendar, with 5-day "weeks" 

Just Doing What The Wife Said

McQuillan walked into a bar and ordered martini after martini, each time removing the olives and placing them in a jar. When the jar was filled with olives and all the drinks consumed, the Irishman started to leave.

"S'cuse me," said a customer, who was puzzled over what McQuillan had done. "What was that all about?"

"Nothing," said the Irishman, "my wife just sent me out for a jar of olives."

Live long and Prosper...
