My friend and business associate Thomas recently posted on his blog that due to South Dakota attempting to ban ALL abortion (including in cases of rape and incest), he and his company will no longer do ANY business in that state.
Although I generally take my time and like to analyse a situation before setting for my opinion, I am in complete agreement with him on this. I will not conduct business in the state of South Dakota.
Now this issue is going to be challenged. And unless the supreme Court overthrows Roe vs Wade (in which case we are ALL truly fucked) it WILL be overturned. And off the top of my head, I don't believe I have any shows in South Dakota. I don't believe I have ever been to South Dakota. But to be honest its not sounding like a place I would have a very good time.
A letter to the Governor will be sent shortly. In it I will lay out my logical and well thought out argument about why I believe he and his state are fundy asshats. I'm sure he will be crushed. I know my contributions to the general coffers of that state are, at this moment, precisely nil, it's the bitter thought that counts. This state has no desire to deal with reality and although I have a tendancy to dress up like a pirate and engage in rampant escapism, I believe that governments have a duty to live in the real, 21st century world.
