|| By FITSNEWS || Life’s not so good for the citizens of South Carolina.  The state’s workforce is small (like its income levels), making good-paying jobs hard to come by.

Well, unless you’re a state lawmaker (and the company hiring you is getting a $53 million handout).  In that case, life is very good …

While their subjects sweat from paycheck to paycheck, the rulers of the banana republic of South Carolina continue to enjoy the good life … one which affords them the opportunity to buy banana yellow Chevrolet Corvettes.  And go to the movies on the weekend.

And when they take their banana yellow Corvettes to the movies (in this case the Regal Cinemas Azalea Square in Summerville, S.C.), they park however they damn well choose … taking up as many spots as they want.

Why?  Because they have the power, and you don’t.

Sources tell FITS the banana yellow Corvette in question belongs to S.C. Rep. Wendell Gilliard of Charleston, S.C.   A former city councilman, Gilliard is serving in his fourth term in the S.C. House of Representatives.

When media leaves out party affiliation, it’s automatically obvious what party it is.
And it automatically reveals the party of the media reporting.
So not only do you out this arrogant legislator, you out yourself.

Thanks for clearing that up. I was thinking while reading the story that he must have learned that inconsiderate trick from a groid, whereby you take up multiple spaces so your prize groidmobile doesn’t get scratched.

I wish it was legal to key scratch a car that parks over the line and takes up more than one space. I bet that kind of inconsiderate behavior would stop by the second or third scratch incident, depending on how dumb the owner is.

It doesn't need to be legal June 15, 2015 at 7:07 pm

I once keyed a cop car in my yute while unbeknownst to me, both cops were watching me do it from inside a restaurant.

I did it because I was drunk and annoyed that they had parked their car just after 2am on a one way street, faced in the other direction to moving traffic in a construction zone that only had one line…while they sat inside the restaurant eating.

The traffic backup in this particular urban metropolis was huge at 2am(when all the bars let out) as a result….so I started at the rear quarter panel of their car and keyed all the way up the side about 3/4 of the way until a friend shouted I was fucked.

I looked up to see 2 fat patrol men staring in disbelief through me the window of the resteraunt, we were no more than 12 feet from each other, looking at each for a moment that seemed forever.

After I snapped out of it I broke into a full run, knocking down whoever was in my way on the sidewalk and the two waddled out of the restaurant to give chase. One of the fat ones was smart and didn’t bother to give chance, but shouted “halt” several times.

The other was so pissed that I was going to get away(I was in very good shape at the time and could run miles on end) he actually jumped in their car and tried driving AGAINST the one way traffic to get me….everyone was honking their horn as mayhem ensued and he finally jumped the lane and actually drove on adjacent railroad track trying to catch me as I ran along them….the sight of his keyed car bouncing up and down across the wood members of the track as those who were held up by them were honking their horns in glee was something to behold.

Thankfully there was also a railway tie wall, about 10′ high, that had no climbing points along side the tracks that lead up a hill with no roads…and I was able to scale it with the one foot off the wall jump method and catch the top and pull myself up. He finally stopped pursuit as I waved “bye bye” to him from the top of the wall.

I was lucky, but I’m sure both the cops and me learned something that day.

LOL! That was a great story. I salute you for a job well done.

Squishy123 June 15, 2015 at 7:47 pm

Meh, I prefer the brake fluid in a cup payback. Toss brake fluid on the paint and they’ll be getting anything it sits on repainted. Quick, easy, nobody likely sees you fucking up the car and the outcome is the same.

C6H12O6 June 15, 2015 at 9:31 pm

Brake fluid + dry, granulated, swimming pool chlorine is an interesting reaction.

tomstickler June 16, 2015 at 9:39 am

Brake fluid? That’s a weak reaction. Sixty years ago we used to start our ceremonial Order of the Arrow campfires with HTH powdered pool chlorine and PineSol cleaner.

A tug on the fishing line tipped the cup of PineSol into the HTH, and the campfire would mysteriously ignite.

Squishy123 June 16, 2015 at 9:51 am

Mind if I come over and put some brake fluid on the hood of your car? According to you it won’t hurt it.

tomstickler June 16, 2015 at 9:54 am

My reference to brake fluid being weak was in regard to its use as a mystery fire-starter, not to a paint-ruiner. Try to keep up.

Who’d be mad at someone driving an abomination like that? It’s at least 10 years old (taillights changed after 2004). That car’s high value is $25,000.

Don’t confuse people with facts. Asshole parking job, but the Camry parked next to it is likely more valuable.

If you buy a Chevy it will stop. Stop working that is, possibly while you are trying to drive it. You’ll need those brakes!

Squishy123 June 16, 2015 at 9:49 am

Actually I believe Corvettes are built more like Cadillacs than Corsicas and are a little more reliable. But then you have buyers who are idiots who will die inside of them because they can’t figure out how to open the door.

A guy had been stranded on an island for months. One afternoon he sees someone on a piece of
flotsam struggling to reach the island. He jumps in and swims to this person and brings her to shore. He can’t believe his eyes – it’s Halle Berry!

After a week Halle suggests that they snuggle together at night for warmth. After another week Halle suggests that they have sex because being
so close together is irresistible.

Two more weeks pass, and Halle asks if there is anything, ANYTHING, else she can do for him for saving her life. He says, “Well, this may be odd, but could you cut your hair short and let me call you Fred?”

She thinks, “This is very strange, but he did save my life, and we may be stranded here for years, and we really need to get along.” So she agrees.

That evening at sunset they were walking along the shore when he stops, looks at her and asks, “Fred, can I share something with you?”

She thinks, “Uh,oh here it comes,” but says, “Yes, what is it?”

With a big smile of satisfaction on his face he exclaims, “Fred! Man, you will never believe who
I’m screwing!”

They don’t really say where they ‘work’, they say: “Hands Off, cops !! I’m somebody with connections !!”

Hey, it works for Jean Toal!

Lobeco June 15, 2015 at 10:40 pm

And Rep Gilliard and the entire the Black Caucus all work for Jean Toal and therefore get special privileges ….. as does Tom Davis

Bill Brasky June 16, 2015 at 8:21 am

…and every other attorney in the general assembly….which is like 75% of both houses.

Hmmmm June 15, 2015 at 3:44 pm

I thought District 62 was Florence?

Bill Brasky June 15, 2015 at 4:41 pm

The license plate numbers for members of the General Assembly are their “ranking” based on their years in their seat. In other words, the longest-serving senator or rep would be “1.”

Roseanne June 15, 2015 at 4:13 pm

He probably paid for it with money from his “charitable foundation”–the same foundation that pays salaries to his family. The same foundation that raises money from companies with business before the legislature.

That sounds like the Clinton Foundation to me.

I would have parked right next to him, so close that he would have had to got in his car from the passenger’s side.

I’ve done that, the bastards would have had to crawl in the passenger door because there was no way of them even being able to open the driver’s door.

shifty henry June 16, 2015 at 6:28 pm

A friend at DHEC could get those condoms that come in various colors. I’ve put some on the ball hitch when I could get away with it, and another trick I’ve done is fling a few onto the front passenger floorboard (if window is open), and I’ve opened some and dropped 2-3 of them on the pavement by the driver’s door. But I’ve never waited around to see what other folks’ reaction is when they see them. Works best if it’s a parking lot where they work. (They’ll be looking for me now!!)..heh! heh!

No envies from that ghettoed up vette, but on another subject altogether, I hate the new license tags (standard and specialty) that are heading our way due to the recent license tag law change pushed by the bozos at the legislature to accommodate the ever important LE crowd. One things for sure, I’ll not be renewing my Gamecock plate when its up for renewal as the specialty plates look terrible under the new law change. Look, I know that many don’t like specialty plates or think the Gov’t has no business issuing them at all. To that I’d say OK, and I’d one up them and note that the major license tag/registration apparatus built by Govt is largely unnecessary. But anyway, in the legislature’s quest for “standardization” (btw, isn’t that what 3rd world dictators seek) they’ve probably hurt a small but nice revenue source for many 501(c)(3) organizations around the state.

shifty henry June 16, 2015 at 7:46 pm
