Bless Wyoming arrest reports from Riverton, Wyo.
When I was doing stand-up in Colorado, people thought I was exaggerating Wyoming fuckery to be funny. Nope. Please see above.
tl;dr version: Meth is a hell of a drug.
My thoughts on the Wyoming Legislature’s 2013 General Session thus far. I’m working on a post about what we’ve seen filed in the past two days.
You guys… this is gonna be a 40 day circus.
Oh, nothing, just taking my zoo for a walk.
And yes, that’s a rat riding a cat, and both are riding a dog.
Why? Because reasons, that’s why.
You know, I could turn this around and say this is what happens when you DON’T let the gays get married. Cats ride dogs, rats ride cats, what’s next? Dogs riding horses?

This is the only education issue the anti-gay, anti-choice PAC WyWatch cares about enough to put on its candidate questionnaire.
I’m not even going to tell you how many others support this because I lost count.
That’s it. I’m proposing using Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as an elective because it could have happened. You guys don’t know! You weren’t there!
Thank you, Governor Mead, for stating the obvious while laughing about the absurd.
Here’s a case that could get interesting in a big hurry:
A group of Wyoming lawmakers wants to get involved in a same-sex divorce case pending before the state supreme court even as the Legislature considers measures that would bar the state from recognizing same-sex marriages performed elsewhere.
The 11 lawmakers want permission to file a “friend of the court” brief with the Wyoming Supreme Court. They’re represented by the Alliance Defense Fund, an Arizona-based Christian civil rights group that has litigated against same-sex marriage in California.
The lawmakers, including House Speaker Ed Buchanan, R-Torrington, propose to file legal papers in support of a ruling last year by Niobrara County District Judge Keith Kautz. The Supreme Court is hearing an appeal of Kautz’s ruling that he lacked authority to hear a divorce case involving two women who were married in Canada in 2008.
In their request for permission to file the brief, the lawmakers argue that Wyoming would have to revise several state laws if the Wyoming Supreme Court acknowledges lower state courts can perform same-sex divorces.
The lawmakers also warn that accepting same-sex divorce would probably also force the state to recognize “plural marriages” meaning polygamy “and other domestic unions found in foreign jurisdictions.”
The Wyoming Supreme Court could decide in coming weeks whether to allow the lawmakers to get involved in the case.
Above is the office of Sarah Palin’s secret research firm in Sheridan, Wyo. - not too far from where I used to live.
Local blogger "The Panglossian Curmudgeon" took this photo of the building. Here’s part of his report:
Now on to the main subject, Paideia Research LLC at 1617 N. Main St. in beautiful Sheridan, Wyoming. Now, having lived here for most of the last 20 years I am quite familiar with Sheridan. As a matter of fact, back in 2001-2oo2 I worked right across the street from Paideia Research LLC as a assistant restaurant manager for KFC and I didn’t even notice it. (It was only a figment of someones imagination back then some 8 odd years ago.) And right behind us was/is the City of Sheridan Law enforcement Building, along with the Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office, and our county jail, which they are currently expanding.
So, North Main St. after you pass 5th heading north is primarily residential, with little insurance offices, a Maverick C-Store, motels, and such, and it is also the Business I-90 route too. After you get past the road you take west to the Sheridan VA, and you go over the railroad tracks, it is mostly commercial, with K-Mart, McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, but it is a short stretch, and then you’re back on to I-90, either heading north out of town toward Montana, which is about 20 miles, or south, and past the other 2 exits for Sheridan, which basically lies west of the north-south interstate path.
So, I decided to visit Paideia Research LLC, as the particular football game I was watching, because it was the only one on, wasn’t too interesting. So, off I headed looking for the 1617 N. Main St. Suite B, Paideia Research LLC. Now, Palingates Googled it, and said:
Now, it was listed in the report for the third quarter, 2010 (Page 462 lists Paideia Research LLC of 1617 N. Main St., Sheridan, Wyoming.) that Tim Crawford, the treasurer for SarahPAC had filed.
It received a disbursement of $12,000 on September 3, 2010. Now, according to Wyoming’s Secretary of State Documents, Paideia LLC was formed on July 16, 2010.
Wyoming is listed as being one of the most business friendly states. Could it be fraud-friendly too? This is very strange indeed.
